Lurking PredatorsMTG Card: Lurking Predators is really good with his abilities. Same goes for Call of the WildMTG Card: Call of the Wild.

Wow. I've never seen Momir Vig, Simic VisionaryMTG Card: Momir Vig, Simic Visionary. (not being sarcastic)

How good is the deck? Seems like it could be stupid fast. What are some of the matchups you've played/won? What weaknesses does it have?

This deck is usually pretty reliable. Can hold down a table of 3-4 players pretty easily. Weaknesses might be lack of good removal in the colors. I've played too many games with it too pick out specific match ups. Basically played everything. It wins upwards of 70-75%. I'm working on getting the mana curve down but don't want to compromise card value.

You might want to think about Devastation Tide instead of evacuation.

I could potentially see that. I do like the fact that Evacuation is an instant. I'll test it out though.

I agree with the Devastation Tide and you can add in a Temporal Mastery as well as a Mystical Tutor . +1

Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Murkfiend Liege or Cold-Eyed Selkie ? This deck rules.

Temporal Mastery is more of a cute trick than anything. I used to run Time Warp as a way to go infinite with witness/shard but, it was difficult. I've really been considering Edric but, I'm not a huge fan of helping opponents.Liege is lackluster unfortunately. Used to have cold-eyed but she never quite worked as well as I wanted her to. Thanks for the suggestions.

It's more than just a "trick." It's a draw, land, and turn advantage.

I have been playing Momir for a while and enjoy seeing what others do with it. I like Vesuvan Shapeshifter but especially Brine Elemental I may consider the later in my own build :-)

My style is a little different to yours, I focus much more on creature utility and combo's so apologies if my suggestions are a little biased. I think you could perhaps replace some of your non-creature cards with creatures that do the same job except you can tutor them with Momir. So I would suggest; Kederekt Leviathan > Evacuation

I can offer a few suggestions in removal as I have struggled through the same problem lol. For creature removal things like Molten-Tail Masticore , Triskelavus , etc. Things that take creatures, Beguiler of Wills , etc etc. Bounce mechanics, Temporal Adept , Void Stalker , Brutalizer Exarch , Equilibrium . Other (trickier) control mechanics, Pestermite , Spike Weaver , Winged Coatl , card:Pemmin's Aura. Board wipes, Oblivion Stone , card:Nevinyrral's Disk, Kederekt Leviathan ...

Id strongly suggest Drift of Phantasms to search for some of your non-creature cards (many of them are 3cmc to start with), I would also suggest things like Shrieking Drake for draw, Lighthouse Chronologist if your keen on extra turns, Aluren if your competitive.

Well I hope that gives you some things to consider, Momir, King Kombo thats my list. +1 from me, although it isnt my style.

First of all, UG is my favorite color combo, so already a fan. It appears that you have a lot of counter-magic, which except for Voidslime isn't totally necessary. card:Nature's Claim is a pretty strict upgrade from Krosan Grip . Overbeing of Myth is a good source of card advantage, produces board presence and triggers your general. Murkfiend Liege and Fable of Wolf and Owl are a pretty fantastic combo as well. Beast Within , Woodfall Primus and Ulamog all provide good removal. Skyshroud Forest is a second Yavimaya Coast . You also have a seemingly random amount of artifact destruction/countercreatures/mana dorks and not very many win conditions, so might I suggest Avenger of Zendikar .

August 23, 2012 5:12 p.m.

In general you should just seek out spells that are both green and blue. +1 though, I like your style.

Project Kraj?

#15

Perhaps you mean Experiment Kraj ? I like to hook him up with Gilder Bairn so he can untap himself and go really wild with the counters!

#16

Yes. Experiment Kraj. He's Very strong with vig colors (graft and such)

Why is there no Deadeye Navigator here? It's pretty much a staple for most blue decks. I know you don't want to just play the staples but it's an odd one to miss out given that you have so many other cards that work with it.
