Coiling Oracle

Creature — Snake Elf Druid

When Coiling Oracle enters the battlefield, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a land card, put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, put that card into your hand.

First off, decide the route you want to go. Do you want to play sea monster tribal, or go the simic landfall route? Getting rid of bad cards like Sharktocrab will help. I'd cut Coiling Oracle for a more reliable ramp spell. Things like that. If you are losing by turn 6, then your curve is to high and you are playing too slow.

I'll try to dip back in with more feedback later. Decide how you want to play this deck in the meantime, and we can offer more focused suggestions.

Spell_Slam thanks for the suggestions! I had all the same doubts and you really killed it with the cards! I actually forgot about Coiling Oracle, Sunlance and Growth Spiral, these are all great suggestions! I might add more Ephemerate, Forest and Island as you said for the mana base

I like the idea! It looks slow; way too slow, even for midrange.

I think the biggest issue is that your mana base is mostly made up of tap lands. I think you could easily get rid of Heap Gate and Citadel Gate for a couple more basics.

Riffing off the idea of Augur and Ephemerate, I think your deck could really take advantage of Coiling Oracle. It will baseline draw you a card, but will also let you play multiple gates a turn to negate the tapland disadvantage. I think you could easily swap out Augurs for those. I guess you could also think about cards like Growth Spiral or Explore.

Since you are playing mostly evasive infect creatures and Apostle's Blessing and removal, I don't think you need Rancor in your deck.

Keep in mind that Utopia Sprawl only enchants forests, which could occasionally be a problem. Maybe a full playset of Oracles would be better, since you have great fixing already with your tap lands.

I find you are going pretty deep into black, which can make things awkward with your gate colour choices. Have you thought about playing White removal instead? Maybe Journey to Nowhere could be good over Cast Down? Maybe Sunlance over disfigure to kill even Festival Crasher?

I definitely think Ancient Brass Dragon has a spot, it could help you reanimate your dragons (as well as whatever you grab from your opponents), I would maybe add that and maybe Goldspan Dragon

Three Visits and Nature's Lore over Cultivate.

Damn over Toxic Deluge

Augur of Autumn might be better than Realmwalker

Drop Aggravated Assault, Aura of Silence, Stinging Study (you have a good chunk of draw as it is), Imposing Grandeur, Spit Flame (there are better cards)

Mana Drain is nice, but I am usually not a fan of it in a deck with 4 or more colors

With this being 5 color, I am trying to debate the best early game package

maybe:

5 counterspells (from below)

An Offer You Can't Refuse, Swan Song, Wash Away, Dovin's Veto, Counterflux, Render Silent, Disallow

4-5 board wipes

Damn, Cyclonic Rift, Winds of Abandon, Supreme Verdict, Crux of Fate

7 2 drop ramps (need all)

Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Farseek, Three Visits, Nature's Lore, Bloom Tender, Coiling Oracle,

4 spot removal

Anguished Unmaking, Assassin's Trophy, Despark, Beast Within, Generous Gift, Fracture, Bedevil, Abrupt Decay

Balaam__ on All Your Base

Nothing comes to mind except what IHATENAMES mentioned, specifically Coiling Oracle should probably go. Otherwise looks fun

Thank you both for the suggestions!

Balaam__, could I perhaps replace Liquimetal Torque with Liquimetal Coating? Will forego a mana rock but allow for added targeted land repossession without the fragile body of the Myr Landshaper? Let me know what you think!

IHATENAMES, you are 100% right about the Coiling Oracle! I will also try and include a minimum of 2 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Acquire has been added to the sideboard. Could I potentially leverage more off Expedition Map or should I run Chromatic Star, e.t.c.?

The problem with Neoform here is the general lack of good 2cmc creatures to sacrifice. I would recommend against running either Lotus Cobra Tangled Florahedron  Flip, as while they accelerate mana, they don't accelerate your landbase, which is what you actually care about. While paying 4 mana to Summoner's Pact may seem daunting, it's actually not really an issue - as with sufficient ramp you'll easily be able to pay for it and the Swarm. Its a staple of Prime Titan decks for a good reason.

Never go over 60 cards. The current cards I think are questionable/droppable are:

  • Vastwood Surge, Eureka Moment, Migratory Greathorn and Quandrix Cultivator: 3-or-4 mana is a lot for this kind of effect, and generally quite slow. By the time you have the mana to cast these, you should be already at a point of not needing them. Aim for the cheaper ramp I'd suggested. In addition to what I'd suggest above, Sakura-Tribe Elder is stronger than all these cards, and a good potential replacement.

  • Prosperous Innkeeper, Lotus Cobra, Tangled Florahedron  Flip: Your goal should be putting a lot of lands into play quickly, not just making a lot of mana. Mana on its own doesn't actually help you get anywhere, as your Swarm needs land drops, and a lot of existing lands in play.

  • Mana Leak feels like a sideboard card at-best. I'm not sure it works particularly well here, especially as by the time your engine is running, your opponent might also have enough lands to pay the cost.

If I were building this list with budget in-mind, it'd probably look something like:
