Nulltread Gargantuan Discussion
1 month ago
This deck is already pretty solid. The only draw back for 1v1 would be Nulltread Gargantuan. It is a strong drop for 3, but leaves you down an extra creature. That creature then will take 2 more turns until it is back and can attack (unless it has haste). Also, if you get stuck not having anything out on turn 3, then it is useless.
I would add cards like Steel of the Godhead, Distortion Strike, and Aqueous Form. Something to give the exalted creatures a free shot at a player since they are attacking alone. That would be better than Bant Charm or Unsummon.
A solid land would be Cathedral of War. Make a big difference in this deck, but may limit your playability due to the colorless aspect of it.
2 creatures that would be really good would be Sublime Archangel and Rafiq of the Many. The second not as cheap, but 4 would not put you over $30. That double strike would be killer. Even Giant Growth would be a good instant for an unblockable exalted creature.
I would look into getting up to 4 Qasali Pridemage if you can. It has a lot going on for just a 2 drop and with exalted, it is going to be a good attacker on turn 2 right away.

I have been constructing my own Mystic Snake/Frilled Mystic deck, and I run Watcher for Tomorrow for early card advantage in addition to Coiling Oracle and Nulltread Gargantuan funny enough. I've only playtested the Gargantuan thus far but someone else I saw online seemed to enjoy it (cannot remember name). Cackling Counterpart is real versatile, too for 8+ Mystic. Here is my deck, if you want to see how it goes together.

Not to try and steer you in any particular direction, but I feel if I were building this deck i'd be doing something like. It probably looks quite a bit different to what you're actually after, but might give you some more ideas to play around with.
3x Augury Owl
4x Gilder Bairn
3x Mystic Snake
4x Turn to Mist
Some reasoning behind what I've done: Mystic Snake and Nulltread Gargantuan seem good but having 4 of each seem a bit too many. Tempest Caller seems to me at least like a pretty poor 4-drop (considering this turn you'll want to be either dropping a walker or holding up counter-magic). Metallic Mimic is great and combos with Animation Module greatly (if you name servo) for as many servos as you can afford each turn. Also helps spread around some love - though you could also name Druid, Snake, or Bird for a degree of value. Rishkar, Peema Renegade seems like a great include to give you the ramp you will soo badly need. I didn't think Elvish Pioneer cut the mustard so I ditched him. I threw in Judge's Familiar instead as it seems to give you more control options, and slow your opponent down.
Paradise Mantle seems great for this deck as not only giving you some easy mana ramp for creatures that you don't really want to be attacking with, but also gives Gilder Bairn a free way to tap without needing to attack!
Your existing instants seemed a bit slow so I figured Turn to Mist could be more useful as far as costing less mana, but also being able to be used on opponents creatures in times of need. as a backup, 2 copies of Illusionist's Stratagem will give you some late-game card draw. Finally I added a 3rd Planeswalker to the mix (reducing the others down to 3-ofs each) so that you have better odds of having multiple walkers down at a time. Nissa is also great for pumping the army while also creating blockers for stall. I think ideally there'd just be 2 of each Kiora, to make way for 2-of a 4th walker, but not sure which one fits the theme best.

Fair enough. I've been having similar results with Nulltread Gargantuan, and I was wondering if you had tried it and gotten anything different. Thanks for the response!

Any thoughts on Nulltread Gargantuan? 5/6 for 3, recurs BBE, and doesn't afraid of anything. (Apologies if my meme-ation is outdated. I can't keep up...)

Hi, +1. I personally like Hooting Mandrills. Elvish Visionary, and maybe Nulltread Gargantuan could be what you are looking for? Rattleclaw Mystic is alright, too. There's also Shaman of the Great Hunt. Hopefully these help.

Hey you should look at my Simic deck for inspiration. I use a different commander, but the ways you said you wanted your deck to be, described my deck pretty well. I have some higher impact ways to distribute counters and lots more ways to use them. Too many ideas to make specific card suggestions to try out. My deck list is sorted by custom categories for ease of reading.
As far as cuts a few of your cards seem low impact like Vigean Hydropon, Nulltread Gargantuan, Geist of the Archives, Invert the Skies, Lens of Clarity, and Skill Borrower. Also you could find more space for +1/+1 counter synergy cards if you cut some or all of the pump spells that only work until end of turn. Cheers.
