Mutational Advantage

Instant

Permanents you control with counters on them gain hexproof and indestructible until end of turn. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to those permanents this turn. Proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)

Crow_Umbra Yeah, that's always been a factor when building a Simic deck for me. Too many options kinda paralyzes my thoughts and deck building direction, which is why I decided to lean more towards The Millennium Calendar style shenanigans.

And thank you for the suggestions! I've got Ripples of Potential and Wave Goodbye from the Simic Ixalan precon, but I just haven't gotten around to opening it yet haha. I've never even heard of Ravenous Slime! It could be a contender for something like Scavenging Ooze. I'll look into that.

I thought about Mutational Advantage, but it feels very situational. I'd probably stick with Heroic Intervention for more of a catch-all defensive card.

Like I said, most of the deck was assembled with stuff I've had in my binders for a while. I'll work towards grabbing copies of those soon.

Great mana curve! I love a great curve like that lol.

The tough thing with +1/+1 Counters strats is that there's always so many good options to choose from; some a bit more meta dependent & narrow than others for sure. A few ideas for potential considerations:

  • Ripples of Potential - Board protection & proliferation, but def the priciest of the recommendations

  • Mutational Advantage - A more narrow Heroic Intervention that can also proliferate.

  • Ravenous Slime - I've played this in a few counters decks, especially since I play in a meta with a decent frequency of Aristocrats & Reanimator decks. Def a more meta dependent option, but one that can get huge pretty quick.

  • Wave Goodbye - Should be fairly asymmetrical most of the time.

I have replaced Render Silent with Mutational Advantage, since the latter card better suits this deck, which also helped with the balance of colors in the deck, as well.

Last_Laugh, I appreciate your suggestions, but most of those cards do not suit my playing style, although perhaps Mutational Advantage would be a good replacement for Fuel for the Cause or possibly Render Silent, since that card does not directly contribute to the theme of this deck.

I'd personally suggest cutting:

Viral Drake for Danny Pink

Guildpact Informant for Mutational Advantage

Lux Cannon for Beast Within

Atomize for Generous Gift or Stroke of Midnight

Juniper Order Ranger for Anduril, Narsil Reforged

Fuel for the Cause for Felidar Retreat

Tamiyo, Field Researcher for Marcus, Mutant Mayor

Otherworld Atlas for Breena, the Demagogue (make em earn the group huggy card draw)

Also consider Wave Goodbye and Ripples of Potential if you own them or they're in your budget.
