Hullbreacher is banned... Now we have to play Narset again. I can't recommend enough to play Consecrated Sphinx/Nezahal, Primal Tide as your high mana payoff in Simic.

Jackfrost23 yep I thought about it, combined with Thragtusk for example (also good with Upheaval ). But ultimately I decided against it because Nezahal, Primal Tide has a built-in suspend mechanic. So instead of using 4x Thragtusk and 2x Suspend I went with 2x Nezahal, Primal Tide and freed up four cards for control and digging for more consistency.

This is sick. Mind if I steal the Nezahal, Primal Tide and Inevitable Betrayal ideas?

I’ve been intrigued by Wandering Archaic  Flip as it is very annoying for any counter spells in the format. But this got me thinking of other cast punishers. Mystic Remora , Rhystic Study , and even Nezahal, Primal Tide (of all things) on the top end. If midrange can develop then this may be a bit weaker but it is a potent response to combo decks that presents a clock in a reasonable amount of time unlike the prison decks. Canthese punishers form a control shell in the format?

@ KBK7101 Indeed! Before settling on the crab, I wanted to build a Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive commander deck! For sure a cool card! Slightly different flavor of voltron, but I could see it also running well as a polymorph voltron commander!

Unfortunately, with the Polymorph gameplan, I don't really have room for the cooler utility creatures, which is a bit of a drawback. I've been playing this at locals the past couple of months and I've recently even cut Nezahal, Primal Tide just to add even more consistency to big plays!

I cutted Nezahal, Primal Tide for Return of the Wildspeaker. Although the artwork and name fit the theme, in the end it‘s a dinosaur and too expensive to cast/to protect - in addition not castable with Quest for Ula's Temple. Return of the Wildspeaker can draw tons of cards because of your big creatures or help to push the final damage through.

Y'all, I need help building this deck, I have the best colors for clones, now I just need some broken, stackable legendary (and non-legendary) creatures, please bring it at me!

The reason I am committed to Sultai is for Dimir cards like Evil Twin and simic cards like Progenitor Mimic

My reason for choosing Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, is for the situation that my opponents have nothing good to copy and I can just go off with stackable +1/+1 counters and win off commander damage.

Once I build the deck IRL, I will post the decklist here, and then close the thread, I appreciate the help!

(I'm not talking card recs like Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Cyclonic Rift or any other staples, I'm looking for niche cards that will make for a fun/unique play experience)

(Also, I already know about all the other clone cards, so pls don't recommend cards like Progenitor Mimic)

Cards like: Soul Foundry, Mimic Vat, Nezahal, Primal Tide, Lithoform Engine and Experiment Kraj
