Momir Vig - Elves - Wizards - Counters

When i saw Momir Vig, Simic Visionary for the first time, i immediately knew i wanted to make a commander deck with him. I love creatures, i like control, i love Simic and i love the toolbox playstyle. At first i tried to make a deck with lots of multicolored creatures and +1/+1 counter mechanics but it didn't turn out as poweful as i had imagined. It was too slow, vulnerable and kind of bulky at times, so i played around with some other ideas and finally decided to go with mostly Elves, particularly Druids to boost my mana, and to include some counter producers and a few heavy hitters, paired with a decent amount of counter spells. I know it's not perfect yet (e.g. weak against mass air) but i think it is pretty decent in what it can do.

Prophet of Kruphix is perfect for this deck. With her and Momir in play it feels like my opponent's turns are just extra turns for me.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and Beast Whisperer work great with Momir's first ability when the crature pool is heavily leaning towards green, like in this case. They let me tutor and play creatures, one after another. The Archdruid's activated ability is a lot of fun when i have enough mana to play him and six other Druids in one single turn and immediately steal an opponent's lands.

Vigean Graftmage works well paired with Marwyn, the Nurturer and other Druids, and with Incubation Druid or Wirewood Channeler he even creates an infinite mana combo. Vorel of the Hull Clade , Timberwatch Elf and Immaculate Magistrate are further options.

Although i do not have any spells that could target him Sage of Hours is a must have here. Just provide him with some counters and the game is more or less over.

Ezuri, Claw of Progress & Immaculate Magistrate and other counter producers synergize with some Druids as well as Champion of Lambholt , Master Biomancer , Plaxcaster Frogling , Vigean Graftmage , Kalonian Hydra , Vorel of the Hull Clade and of course Sage of Hours

My goal is to slow down my opponent, play Momir in turn 3 or 4, then get Prophet of Kruphix and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid or Beast Whisperer, then Ezuri, then lots of Druids, then play Sage of Hours and/or Vigean Graftmage to end the game.
