Biomancer's Familiar Discussion
3 days ago
I think the only 2 things i could suggest are Veil of Summer to protect your stuff from blue players in the turn you are going off and Temur Sabertooth that could work as a replacement for your commander.
You are also running Windfall and Echo of Eons. You could use both as a wincon pairing them with Narset, Parter of Veils and hose your opponents pretty hard. Might go to far away tho from what you want to do.

I'm interested in possibly getting into cEDH using this deck, but I have a few questions. Now that we have Biomancer's Familiar , do you think it might replace Training Grounds ? It has the same text and only costs one more mana. It being a creature means that it can also be added to possible Hulk piles, although I don't know how much wiggle room there is in the piles as is.
I was also wondering if you had any budget lists, maybe a $500 and $1000 list, to work up towards the fully tuned versions? I play Modern right now, and own most of the staples but some of the more expensive pieces (ABUR Duals, FoW, etc.) I am missing.
Thanks for the great primer and work on th

here are some cards you could add to your deck
- Rhystic Study : It's a blue staples that should be in any blue deck
- Helix Pinnacle : It's an easy win con that cost only 1
- Jace, Wielder of Mysteries : It's a better Lab Maniac since it can make you draw to win
- Narset, Parter of Veils : It's pretty much a tutor killer for all your opponents and it buy you time to set up your game and win.
- Walking Ballista : It's another win con that can help you to get rid of creatures
- Consecrated Sphinx : It's an incredible draw engine.
- Copy Artifact : You can copy any artifact on the battlefield but I usually try to copy Isochron Scepter to get another spell imprited like High Tide or - any Counterspell that cost 2 CMC or less
- High Tide : Double all the mana from your island
- Aetherflux Reservoir : Another win con that allows you to gain life as much as you need
- Biomancer's Familiar : It's the creature version of Training Grounds so it's a must have!
There are many other cards you should add to your deck but they are not for every budget. Cards like :
- Mana Drain
- Jace, the Mind Sculptor
- Cyclonic Rift
- Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger
- Force of Will
- Oracle of Mul Daya
- Mana Reflection

Ares111123 well not necessarily. If you get 4 colors between permanents, then Faeburrow Elder and Gauntlets of Light is infinite on its own. Giving him haste allows you to perform the combo on the same turn that you play him as well, therefore not needing Biomancer's Familiar or Leyline of Abundance at all.
One copy of Biomancer's Familiar or Leyline of Abundance are only needed in addition to the Incubation Druid and Gauntlets of Light combo. This should also be looked at as your secondary combo method, as it takes 3 cards to enable. I understand you need all four colors on the field for the first, however that will be easier to achieve as you plan to play your planeswalkers early anyways.
Obviously this is your deck, so go the route that you wish, but in my opinion I feel that focusing on the easier to protect combo is going to be more reliable than possibly hitting it on turn 4 in a few games. One kill spell or board wipe will completely set you back. Have you considered Tamiyo, Collector of Tales to help dig for / recur your combo pieces?

You're route differently sounds interesting a I've been wondering if I should add birds of par-er Gilded Goose to the deck for that t1 goose into t2 Oko, Thief of Crowns . The only problem is Biomancer's Familiar is pretty important to the combo as it enables us to go off by t3 at the earliest and t4 reasonably. Once I have the time to list out all of the ways to get infinite mana in this deck it'll be easier to so that. Same for Leyline of Abundance except even more so as it can start on the field. I might try cutting some Once Upon a Time 's for gooses though.

As a way to get your 4th color, may I suggest trying out Rhythm of the Wild ? It gives your Faeburrow Elder haste (making it able to tap on the same turn it is played) or a +1/+1 counter for Incubation Druid. Either one of these options will immediately enable to combo (given you have your as well). Additionally, similarly to Teferi, Time Raveler , it protects your combo pieces from being countered. You could then cut Biomancer's Familiar , as it will no longer be needed for the combo to work, and the enchantment will be harder to deal with than a creature. I would only add 3 copies of Rhythm of the Wild .
If going this route, I would suggest cutting 2 copies of Once Upon a Time , 1 copy of Leyline of Abundance , and the last copy of Biomancer's Familiar to add all 4 copies of Gilded Goose . You will be better able to fix your colors in a 4 color deck with this, as well as ramp to Teferi, Time Raveler or Oko, Thief of Crowns on turn 2 which is powerful enough on its own. Oko provides more food, and Gilded Goose 's ability to make food is a good mana sink.

Cloudchaser.Kestrel The fact that Biomancer's Familiar 's ability to enable the combo escaped my thoughts disappoints me lol. Leyline i didnt add at first because it seemed to obvious and i wanted to keep experimenting with the deck and I forgot about it after I posted the "Final" decklist, same goes to Hydroid Krasis . That being said I tweeked my decklist to add in those cards, mainly dropping the wish cards as I do not believe I will need to tutor as much to find the combo.
Thanks for the suggestion and what do you think of the new decklist?
