Description

This is my simic deck based off of cards that came in the actual intro deck plus some other cards that I own. I want to keep this deck cheap money wise and am looking for feedback as to if it is a viable standard deck ad if it is FNM worthy

You could go ahead and play it at FNM for fun, but I don't think you'll win much. I would probably take out Bond Beetle, Chronomaton, Unexpected Results, and Leyline Phantom in favor of better stuff, like more of Zameck Guildmage or Fathom Mage, or Rapid Hybridization . Master Biomancer is pretty good, if you could manage to get it.

You know what this deck needs?

Increasing Savagery !

It's not easy to make a deck that comes straight out of a intro deck. Keeping a deck under $50 is nearly impossible now, and you've made one...this is a great job. Keep up the good work!

Just as proof that this deck works. I went to my first FNM yesterday and went 2-2. Not bad for a newbie huh?

Deadbridge Goliath Blessings of Nature Increasing Savagery

Just to name a few.

You are extremely creature heavy ---> Ivy Lane Denizen /Champion of Lambholt

Again, creatures with counter play ---> Hindervines

You need a bomb drop besides Sylvan Primordial and Sapphire Drake ---> Primordial Hydra

Having trouble with aggro? ---> Timberland Guide

Again Increasing Savagery and Blessings of Nature NEED to be in this.

Also, try replacing the Crocanura x2 and the Adaptive Snapjaw x2 with Deadbridge Goliath x4.

And to further explain the Deadbridge Goliath strategy and why you should replace the Crocanura and Adaptive Snapjaw for them~ (DBG = Deadbridge Goliath

Crocanura - 2G for 1/3 Evolve Reach

Pros: Low/mid cost

Cons: Evolve is bad for this. Reach needs higher power. Reach (Should besideboard), 1/3

Cons VS DBG: DBG=5/5 for 1 more mana + Scavenge to pump

Adaptive Snapjaw - 4G for 6/2 Evolve

Pros: Big head, Toughness Evolve

Cons: Cost, low starting toughness, focused.

Cons VS DBG: DBG is one less cost for 5/5 + Scavenge to pump

Deadbridge Goliath - 2GG for 5/5 Scavenge x5 1/1 counters

Pros: Mid range cost for 5/5, super huge scavenge, clutch play

Cons: Focused (Not always a con, scavenge)

Cons VS Crocanura : No evolve, No Reach

Cons VS Adaptive Snapjaw : No evolve

and once you make your creatures huge, they need to trample Rancor

Also, I highly recommend ditching the Simic Keyrune x2 and the Simic Guildgate x2 for some of the above mentioned items.

24 lands is perfectly acceptable.

Why not go Bant? The colour combination affords you card:Avacyn's Pilgrim which, in tandem with Arbor Elf , would let you jump the cut from 1 cmc straight to 3 cmc spells by turn 2. It's a viable idea seeing as in UW you've got Lyev Skyknight while in GW you get Loxodon Smiter AND Centaur Healer all three of which are more likely to trigger your evolve triggers with that 3+ power/toughness which means dropping a turn 2 Elusive Krasis is definitely going to be something your opponents REALLY should be wary of.Another situation this affords you is a turn 3 Experiment One followed by a Strangleroot Geist , which really gives you 3 triggers off that evolve trigger... letting you swing in for 4, 2 of which is unblockable, while the other 2 the opponent will probably let through if they don't want evolve to trigger again.

Updated with cards I own. Thank you all for the advice I really appreciate it and when I come into some money I will definitely be buying those cards to power my deck up
