Bioshift Discussion

Jabes on Big and Stupid

Also since your deck works slightly around +1/+1 counters, it would be good to expand this a bit. A few cards that could help with this would be Solidarity of Heroes , Kalonian Hydra , Doubling Season , Bioshift , Karn's Bastion , Sword of Truth and Justice , Primordial Hydra .

love the list :) and absolutely love the fact that you take the time to list the individual basic lands! that's some dedication to your aesthetic choices! my wife has a kumena deck as well, and she often completely decimates me. cards on her list, that could do wonders for you, I think, are: Vorel of the Hull Clade, Stonybrook Banneret, Seafloor Oracle, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Novijen, Heart of Progress, Ring of Evos Isle, Favor of the Overbeing, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Give / Take, Bioshift, Sage of Fables, and Icon of Ancestry. Stay frosty mate

Tarthrin on Verazol BUDGET Kicker Commander

7 months ago

Definitely look at Bioshift. Looks cheap and you can steal all the +1/+1 counters from one of your other creatures to move to Verazol. Combine with something like Cytoplast Root-Kin, Arcbound Fiend, or Galloping Lizrog.

Wild Onslaught is a cheap kicker instant that can add +1/+1 counters

Combine Guildmage gives more +1/+1 counters and can move them

A little more expensive of a card (~$) but would be a good addition: Forgotten Ancient

Hey, I like the build +1

It really shouldn't have the Standard tag though, it looks like Modern format is the one best suited to a build such as this.

You might look at Wild Onslaught, Thrive, and other non-creature spells which create counters instead of just moving existing ones around like Bioshift. These would help speed up the win condition on Simic Ascendancy as well.

It doesn't look like there's a lot of options for just putting counters on creatures for Blue, but Green has tons of options.

You could cast Bioshift in response by "holding priority," but you would need to announce it: "I'll cast Essence Harvest and with that on the stack Bioshift from my Hydra onto my Corpsejack," however this runs into the same problem of an opponent being able to remove the Corpsejack Menace after Bioshift resolves before Essence Harvest does, and gives the opponent more information up front.

For an example, I have a 9/9 Managorger Hydra as well as Corpsejack Menace on the field. I cast Essence Harvest and my opponent chooses not to counter or react to it, so it resolves. Can I then cast Bioshift and move 8 +1+1 counters to corpsejack (for a total of 20) and my opponent lose 20 life and therefore the game, or must I cast the bioshift prior to the essence harvest? The reason I ask is that by playing essence harvest first, I can use the bioshift in the event that a person tries to remove the creature with highest power from play. If I play the bioshift first,I may lose that creature (and its counters) as well as the bioshift and essentially waste the essence harvest.

Altoman on Look at all 'em counters

Nice deck! I always liked proliferate decks.

I suggest Vigean Hydropon. It goes really well with proliferate.

Also, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk is something you might want to consider. Mix it up with Bioshift and you'll have great results.

Finally I would swap Cold-Water Snapper for Blastoderm because you can proliferate the fade counters and it cost less for better firepower.

Forgotten Ancient insanely good with Corpsejack Menace Primordial Hydra counters quadruple every turn Bioshift lets us put our 8 +1/+1 counters on another creature so it gets + 16/16 Then use Essence Harvest for the win
