Astral Cornucopia Discussion

This looks like it could definitely be scary once it gets going. Very dedicated to its theme.
From a general construction sense, it could probably use a few less lands, a bit more ramp and card draw, and a few less cards on the top end (the mana curve leans high).
Some good mana staples that would help and fit the theme: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia, Solemn Simulacrum, Fertilid, Gyre Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Incubation Druid, Rampant Growth
Since your goal is to get poison counters on ASAP (so that proliferate matters), stuff like Ichor Rats and Plague Stinger would be good additions. Grafted Exoskeleton and Phyresis can make it so some of your other creatures can contribute to the poison damage count. Viridian Corrupter and Relic Putrescence both give you a way to give poison counters while also serving as artifact removal of a sort.
For cards to potentially remove, there are a few that fit the theme, but may be harder to get the benefit from. Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Second Chance don't do too much for you. Door of Destinies doesn't really have a good tribe to name.
There is a sort of sacrifice sub-theme going on that doesn't feel like it fully pans out. The Arcbound creatures are on the expensive side and you don't have a ton of artifact creatures to move the counters onto. Plus, if they hit for regular damage, they're not going to contribute to your infect plan. Throne of Geth and Plaguemaw Beast give repeatable proliferate, but you don't have a ton of things that you want to sacrifice, or ways to get things back from the graveyard to recur them. Martyr for the Cause and Roalesk, Apex Hybrid are only really good if you get exactly Plaguemaw Beast.

Arthur_194 Thanks for the suggestions! I switched from Blue Sun's Zenith to Stroke of Genius because it has fewer mana pips to worry about. Given the large amount of colorless mana the deck holds onto, it proved more consistent.

Hey, nice deck. Is it new, or are you on a budget?
I have played Vorel for several years, take a look at my deck. I'm not a fan of those simic mana artifacts. You cold use Vorel's ability on Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia to generate lots of mana.
There are definitely some cards that dont do much that are worth cutting off your deck. Like Elvish Mystic, Krasis Incubation, Dragonscale Boon, Nature's Panoply, Quirion Elves, Thrive...
It's nice to have some "win" cards, like Overwhelming Stampede and Triumph of the Hordes to beef up your creatures and swing them all at once. Also Blue Sun's Zenith works perfectly as card draw, that can also force an opponent to draw his or her whole deck if you have the mana late in the game.
And aren't you running too few lads?

Hey, why not Blue Sun's Zenith instead of Stroke of Genius? I have a simic deck with Vorel as commander that can generate tons of mana and I love Blue Sun's Zenith, sometimes you can force you force an opponent to draw his whole deck, therefore making him losing the game. You should consider Everflowing Chalice or Astral Cornucopia too.

For your consideration, although I'm guessing they were already under your radar, Sigil of Sleep and Suq'Ata Firewalker . If you end up going for the beautifully bureaucratic wizard flavor of Aphetto Alchemist , then Gilded Lotus , Doubling Cube and Astral Cornucopia look desirable for making blue mana to get extra mileage out of Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura . Trophy Mage and Tribute Mage could hunt down Thousand-Year Elixir and Magewright's Stone for you. Walking Ballista might be an all too often encountered wincon but it does possess strong Tim-like qualities. The deck's looking good, have fun and happy pinging!

THE SHOW BUTTON DOESN'T WORK OMG HERE IT IS TYPED OUT LIKE A LOSER.
Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.
Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.
Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but wait...how 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.
I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.
Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers
