UG Controlled Crushing

Standard* Control G/U (Simic)

WaltAssault


Description

I saw to decks I liked but wanted both. Here you go.

Thoughts:

Mana ramping with Control

Bounty of the Luxa, Nissa's Renewal (+Health Buffer), Naga Vitalist and Weaver of Currents for mana ramping.

Champion of Rhonas -> Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Nissa, Steward of Elements (2nd ability) -> Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Part the Waterveil -> Cascading Cataracts (Indestructible mainly)

Part the Waterveil -> Nissa, Steward of Elements (Ult ability) -> Cascading Cataracts

Walking Ballista to help with aggro decks.

Turn 4 Ulamog? That's terrifying. Loving the control aspect as well. How much testing have you had and how does it do?

@puetypoo - Yes, I saw the same possibility. I haven't done anything besides putting it all together toady after seeing a couple of the same color decks on this site. I am looking for suggestions and thoughts. I am just getting back into MTG and need something to play until the blocks rotations.

The only thing I can really offer is that I don't think you need the Cascading Cataracts because I believe it's just too slow for only two colors. I would consider cutting those and maybe going with just 22 lands and adding in some Censor.

The main reason for Cascading Cataracts is for the benefit of Indestructible when turning them into creatures not the mana.

Love the interactions. I'm working on a Simic deck myself inspired by a pure love for this new Nissa. Much heavier creature based though.

I like Champion of Rhonas but with the only big bombs being 2 copys of Ulamog I would maybe sacrifice at least one copy for something else. Maybe -1 Champion +1 Sandwurm just because the utility Champ is going to offer with the limited amount of Ulamogs / creatures to trigger from him.

If you are interested in checking out what I am putting together id love feedback/ extra brains too - just recently returned to standard and want to play something effective but out of the box.

Simic ramp/energy ramp

@cafiasco - I decided to to take your advice. I removed x1 Champion of Rhonas and I also removed x1 Nissa, Steward of Elements, which brought the deck to a firm 60; the deck was at 62. I will be taking this deck to next week's FNM and will update with the results.
