This deck uses "mana dorks" and Biovisionary to possibly win by turn 4.
I need a way to deal with Slaughter Games and the like. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
The deck is obviously post-Gatecrash, I just flagged it as Standard because it's what I'll be playing in Standard post-Gatecrash.
Thank you all for your help, suggestions are still appreciated!
Honestly, I've basically sworn an oath to make this deck a thing at my local FNM, so any and all suggestions will be Ponder ed based on the meta of my store.
Perhaps just run some Clone . It's worse than Phantasmal Image was, but (with this many dorks) he can serve the same defensive purpose, while also adding to your Biovisionary -count. I also agree with the Cackling Counterpart suggestion, and there's this Fog that populates, that might be interesting. (I forgot the name atm)
I love Biovisionary as a creature tho, and I really like the deck idea :)
JasonD FYI, the populating Fog is called card:Druid's Deliverance. The reason I run the Fog s and Dissipate s is that I can board them out against control and aggro, respectively, and thus have more open slots to transform the deck with for games 2-3.
The Fog is primarily there as Anti-Aggro defense, while the Dissipate is primarily for anti-control. I'd use card:Druid's Deliverance, but I have nothing (currently) that could be populated, and it costs an additional mana. Cackling Counterpart is a good idea, but I honestly have no idea where to put it, although replacing Farseek with it is something to consider.
If you only bring in the full counter or full fog package in in certain match-ups, I think at least one of the sets could start in your sideboard. As it stands now, the sideboard does something completely different from your mainboard - and I think you could tweak your mainboard to be more combo-oriented than you are now to pull of a t4 win more consistently, and have your sideboard be combo-protection from different kinds of strategies.
To add more combo to the mainboard, perhaps consider the aformentioned clone-types as combo pieces, Think Twice or Amass the Components type effects to draw to your combo pieces, perhaps even card:Alchemist's Apprentice and Elvish Visionary to add to your creaturebase. I would consider dropping card:Avacyn's Pilgrim, and balancing out the Simic Charm s, Dissipate s and Fog s
Pardon me if I speak too freely, these are just my 2c, but as a combo deck I think it's important to just go all-in for game one, and adjusting as needed, rather than building a 'round' deck game one and missing out on that possible t3/t4 win.
