Frilled Mystic Discussion

I like the idea you have going, but I think you should capitalize more on your ability to play at instant speed. Consider more counter spells like Sinister Sabotage to complement Frilled Mystic .

Additionally, I would suggest trying to stick with 2 colors to start. You will want a consistent enough Mana base to cast Frilled Mystic or any other color intensive cards on curve, and including some cards like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames and Sephara, Sky's Blade will not even be able to be cast from your hand if you draw them. I would stick with more copies of cards like Agent of Treachery instead.

I hope these suggestions helped!

I know, but not everyone plays black, those who play black may choose to not play that card, they may not draw that card before you kill them, Or swap In Paradise Druid for Leafkin Druid , pop in some Hydroid Krasis , and you could always add Frilled Mystic or some other kind of stupid blue counterspell if you are really concerned about it. That's what side boards are for.

Thanks Caerwyn, I have updated this deck with tutors.

I have other ways to win without Battle of Wits , these are Guile , Thing in the Ice  Flip, Torrential Gearhulk , Crush of Tentacles and Draining Whelk . These can win when played, especially as this is a counter/control deck opponent should have little board presence. this also means that Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic can be very dangerous also.

With the added tutors there are 52 cards to win or find a win (ok Perplex will find idyllic tutor to find Battle of Wits , but it is a counter as well)

While your advice to go the persist route would indeed make a better and more competitive deck, I wanted it to be a counter orientated deck, it is meant to be able to win games which i think it can, while intimidating the opponent with a massive pile of counters!

So, I like the ramp. Definitely looks better and will allow you to play Kraj sooner. Let's talk about card draw. Fathom Mage is a must-have as you get to draw a card for free every time you put a +1/+1 counter on it. Sage of Fables is good as it lets you cash in your counters for cards. Not quite as good as Fathom mage, because you have to pay for the ability. Path of Discovery pulls double duty by giving your creatures counters AND smoothing out your draws Bred for the Hunt is also an effective and free source of card draw.

Moving onto getting counters on things and protecting them

Durable Handicraft and Retreat to Kazandu are great options for easy ways to get counters on things Hardened Scales can lead to some really silly things, though admittedly, it is a little pricey Sporeback Troll can save your team or specific creatures, assuming you have the mana Counterspells are also useful for stopping a boardwipe Glen Elendra Archmage is fantastic as putting a +1/+1 counter on it negates the -1/-1 it gets from persist, meaning you can just keep using the ability Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic are also good options as they are creatures as well If you want to be mean, you could put in a Trygon Predator to help shut down artifacts and enchanments. Speaking of which, you might want to consider Bane of Progress for that purpose Overall its looking good though!

You might find running off-color fetches like Flooded Strand or Verdant Catacombs to be helpful. These will act as secondary Tropical Island s and Breeding Pool s, and make your mana way more consistent. Waterlogged Grove is another ETB-untapped dual you may want to consider. Birds of Paradise is an excellent dork you should run. Depending on your meta, Carpet of Flowers may be worth including. In conjunction with your Arbor Elf , Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth can be better than one-mana mana-dorks. Fyndhorn Elves is another Llanowar Elves .

Running Primal Surge puts a bit of a damper on the traditional blue side of EDH; not being able to run Ponder , Preordain or Brainstorm is difficult. However, if you run permanent-based card-draw, you can probably get around this problem -- Hydroid Krasis is a good start. Jace's Archivist comes straight to mind. Since you're running so many creatures, Edric, Spymaster of Trest could be an Ancestral Recall most turns. Slate of Ancestry in creature decks is... good.

Keeping your opponents from doing things is similar to drawing cards. Narset, Parter of Veils is excellent to keep combo-players back, and also nets a card; running Root Maze and Arcane Laboratory are similarly powerful. If you run Wirewood Symbiote and Elvish Visionary , you can produce mana and card-advantage. With your Intruder Alarm , you can go off with enough mana dorks; similarly, using Words of Wind to return the Elvish Visionary can get you infinite experience, enemy-permanent bounce, and mana. Energy Flux is really good, in the right meta. Depending on your opponents, Heartwood Storyteller can be a good draw engine. Mystic Remora is a good turn-one play if you have a slower hand.

Similar to your Inkmoth Nexus , Blighted Agent can produce an insta-win.

Reclamation Sage is a good utility-creature, since you can't run Krosan Grip or Nature's Lore . Mystic Snake is a creature you can use as interaction, like Venser, Shaper Savant , Draining Whelk and Frilled Mystic . With Deadeye Navigator , you can recur this effect. Eternal Witness 's Regrowth effect is a good use of a slot, as it can recur countered threats. Walking Ballista synergizes with your general REAL good; Hangarback Walker is similar, but I think it's a little worse.

Concordant Crossroads is useful if you wanna activate Prime Speaker Zegana right away; it also enables chaining dorks together, each casting the next, while something like your Beast Whisperer acts as a draw-engine.

Right. That's all I can think of right now. Good luck!

Nasser_inside1 I did think of that, but wasn't quite sure what to drop to add Frilled Mystic . The deck is still very much a work in progress so thank you for your input.

I have shifted towards more token generation, and added Deep Forest Hermit due to its budget price and good value for mana cost, as well as Hornet Queen for valuable blocker generation. Replacing one of these two, or possibly Wild Wanderer , would make room for Frilled Mystic . I am still looking for a card to switch with Dead of Winter as well.

What about Frilled Mystic as an addition to your counterspells?

Why not turn it to simic flash? If you do, you can add Frilled Mystic , Growth Spiral , and Vivien, Champion of the Wilds ,
