Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait Discussion

Love me some loaming Azusa decks! I have a few of those myself. Though I haven't ever built a Muldrotha deck. Looks good to me.

Now, I don't play infinite combos as a general rule. So my comments should be taken with a grain of salt.

First, imagine the possibilities of Storm Cauldron in this deck. Most of the time it will be a massive nuisance to all opponents, while you will be fine with all of your multiple land drop capabilities.

I think that Crop Rotation should definitely be in here. As well as Elvish Reclaimer . And also Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait .

Splinterfright is also worth a look.

That's all I got. Cheers!

Hi! Love your deck, seems to be pretty dang powerful. There's a card I'd consider: what about Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait ? It provides sick card advantage AND is an additional exploration! It's up to you tho

Good question! I see Voltron, Pillow Fort, Superfriends, and a touch of other counters (mainly +1/+1) to proliferate.

I don't play an Atraxa deck myself, and I'm sure some of the resident experts could give you a better hand than this--but here are some of the better draw effects of the format:

Stroke of Genius

Phyrexian Arena (I don't love that one, but I would catch SO much flak if I didn't include it here)

Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait

Mystic Remora

Sylvan Library

Bolas's Citadel

Btw, I found another combo while goldfishing: Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait 1 / Tatyova, Benthic Druid + Retreat to Coralhelm + Sakura-Tribe Scout / Llanowar Scout + Abundance : Play a land, use Aesi or Tatyova to dig for another land with Abundance. Put down the land with either of the Scouts. Use Retreat to untap the Scout, find another land with Abundance, rinse and repeat to put all lands from your deck onto the battlefield. Use the final land to fail to flip a land with Abundance and stack your deck in any you want. This basically results in letting you tutor for any card from the deck every single turn.

I have been thinking about making an spell based Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait too once I realized that Aesi lets you draw the card you put on top with Mystic Sanctuary . Speaking of Mystic Sanctuary , I feel like there is there is a lot of broken things we can do with it, which is quite nice as there are almost a million way to tutor for islands in the game ( like the expensive fetches , the cheap fetches , the panoramas , Farseek , or even islandcycling ). First off Ghostly Flicker + Mystic Sanctuary is draw a card at instant speed for U whenever the heck you want. Add in Vesuva and you make Snapcaster Mage look like a bad card, or you can just add in High Tide to generate infinite Mana and draw your entire deck. Further Deprive and some of the moonfolk also work quite well with Mystic Sanctuary , or really any repeatable effect that returns lands to our hands.

Since you are playing Tatyova, Benthic Druid what about Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait . I dont know if you want the landfall ability in your deck but there are a lot more great inclusions to make in a simic deck. While being on this whole Landfall thingy, Pearl Lake Ancient works then very nice.

I think Reality Shift is not bad but Ravenform should be a better fit here, also there is Rapid Hybridization Since you are already playing big bad creatures what about a good ol' Hadana's Climb  Flip Since you are short on removal what about big bad Terastodon , yes it will bounce back with your very flavourfull boardwhipe Whelming Wave but afterall, that's something good, so you can replay it ;) Dont underestimate the value of a Krosan Grip , Splitsecond can catch people on the wrong foot, interrupting combos.

Talking about Whelming Wave why not double down and put a Cyclonic Rift in there aswell? Or for flavour this guy: Kederekt Leviathan . Or something rather stupid: Aethersquall Ancient and since you are most likely to be behind on board i'd slam an Evacuation right in there aswell. And maybe even one River's Rebuke and a Coastal Breach even Inundate should be fine here.

Playing Return of the Wildspeaker but not Soul's Majesty ? Seems like a hard miss for me.

Kodama of the East Tree seems like a good fit here, to cheat out some of the expensive stuff when you cast another one already, also works on lands. Something that works similar would be Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty . More on the topic cheating the mana cost, what about an Elvish Piper or a Quicksilver Amulet

Something protective is always good Thryx, the Sudden Storm

Your carddraw seems to be based on playing creatures with Garruk's Uprising and Elemental Bond (which is better in your deck because of it's Synergy with the tokens from Koma, Cosmos Serpent . But you can double down on that with cards like Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer , and The Great Henge . Colossal Majesty works similar to you but since you are ablte to include very high CMC stuff just slam a Zendikar Resurgent in there aswell.

But Since you should have the mana, what about a Blue Sun's Zenith , Stroke of Genius , Pull from Tomorrow or maybe just a Genesis Wave

Thrasios, Triton Hero and Staff of Domination will help you do something with excess mana.

Ramp is all fun an games, but your cmc is very high so why not go for Skyshroud Claim , Explosive Vegetation , Migration Path , Circuitous Route

Now to some more flavour which might not be good, but flavour you know? Kiora Bests the Sea God

And you are in Simic anyways, so let me dump some simic staples here anyways Oko, Thief of Crowns , Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath , Fierce Guardianship , Mana Drain , Force of Will

and last something very special, you are already very high in CMC, why not double down and play a Keruga, the Macrosage , you can double down and play it as your companion, that'd be fun. You wont miss out on too much. A lot of it is also available in 3CMC like Disallow , Saw It Coming , Simic Locket or Search for Tomorrow Some cards have CMC 3 but you can still do stuff on turn 1 and 2 ;) but that's up to you and how much you want to go down that road of memes and shattered dreams.

Lands looks fine, but since you are able to untapp some lands, maybe use a Lotus Field or atleast a Castle Garenbrig . Since your Devotion can be very high at somepoint Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx but be worth it.
