Modern* Budget Combo G/U (Simic) Ramp



this is a deck idea i had in dragons but the card support wasn't up to the challenge so Modern gives me the option of building this hopefully insane deck. as allays all deck support and suggestions are welcome!

The deck works by ramping to 5-7 mana then drooping a huge guy with a good ETB affect. then putting Mirror Mockery on it, swinging and getting the super good ETB affect again and again and again.

Hey man! :P I love the concept so I have some tips to help you. Unfortunately, the way your deck is built currently won't be able to survive long enough to actually put your plan into motion. First of all, I think aura finesse is just inherently bad... Drop those, and drop boundless realms (way to slow). Also, you'll need some nonbasic lands that can tap for either blue or green. Make sure you have more forests than islands, because you'll need to have forests for your ramp cards, and you can search your library for islands. I'd say 70% forest and 30% island should be good.

Then you have two options: A) drop a few creatures until you have about 9-10 left, then get better and more ramp cards so you can get there faster. Ideally, we will want a big creature on turn 3, then swing with mirror mockery on turn 4. The best way to do this is with Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl, and better ramp cards include Explore, Search for Tomorrow, Farseek. Rampant growth is fine, but explosive vegetation might be too slow. Remember, it's more than possible to get to 5-7 mana on turn 3.

B) Drop all the ramp, and change all your etb creatures for faster, cheaper ones. This will take research on your part, but cards that come to mind are Coiling Oracle, Thragtusk, Obstinate Baloth, Reclamation Sage for the sideboard, and I can't think of others but that should be good.

In short, the deck is too slow to work in modern, but it can be made much better thankfully. You should either go down some creatures and improve the ramping part of your deck, or you should drop ramp altogether and switch to smaller, faster creatures. Good luck with the deck! :D

thanks for the suggestions and I have been looking to make it slightly faster but my play groups meta doesn't really call for a T4 target. thanks for the suggestions I was definitely trying to speed it up but I just started playing when dragons came out and don't have the hole entirety of cards memorised so the suggestions help with the searching process of faster ramp cards.
