Love the idea. Only thing I'd swap is Opt for Brainstorm, Ponder or Preordain.

Cheers!

Removals:

Additions:

Dropped a few copies of Opt & Shock in Favour of an extra Island and Flame Sweep.

Dropped Expansion / Explosion to 3 copies as 4 was too many but I still find this to be a great late game rally/finish and really strong in matchups against ramp where I can copy something like Growth Spiral.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell never seemed to pull his weight and Niv-Mizzet while a great top end inclusion doesn't need to be a two of. Dropped those and a copy of the Manticore in favour of 4x Brineborn Cutthroat who is as much of a workhorse here as he is in Simic Flash.

Hoping that with the addition of Flame Sweep the matchup against token strategies, particularly black/white ETb or Sac strategies, will be much stronger.

Bolo33 on Please Help - cheap deck ...

Standard. Cheap?

That's hard to bear, for most. The thing I do to keep my decks cheap is avoid Shock Lands( Steam Vents and the like) and cards like Fabled Passage . I'm not denying their value, but are they really 10-20 times more valuable (in the game) than a card like Temple of Epiphany ? They both tap, and both give an add on.

Also, Sleeves exist, to protect cards. Cards can be bought cheaper when they are in a less-than-new condition. And foils are also a bit unnecessary, if your goal is to stay cheap.

Now for an actual idea. I was looking at the cards you liked at the top of this post. Pteramander and Crackling Drake are both big on instants, and getting Humongous as a result of them. Enigma Drake has already rotated, it is no longer standard legal. Two other red and blue cards that get Gargantuan as a result of instants/sorceries are Erratic Cyclops and Wee Dragonauts . Cards that help you cast such spells are Goblin Electromancer , and (sorta) Spellkeeper Weird . The instants/sorceries you want to cast with this can be damaging type, card advantage type, orcreature buff/debuff, or even the first two of these combined. (Counterspells are essential, too)

For Damage, Shock , Lava Coil and Electrodominance are good. Card-Drawing, Opt , Winged Words , and Chemister's Insight all draw and give card advantage. Infuriate , Sure Strike , and Sonic Assault both buff/debuff. Ral's Outburst both damages and gives card advantage. For a damaging deck, you may want Electrostatic Field . For a card-drawing deck, The Magic Mirror and Niv-Mizzet, Parun make a great combo. If you want to simply buff your creatures to victory, make sure to keep the pumping creatures.

Counterspells are essential, I find Quench is surprisingly useful. Ionize is great too, and everyone seems to love Mystical Dispute too, although it is pricey. Convolute is a cheaper (monetary-wise) thing to use.

I hope this helped you decide on cards!

You're going to probably want a Simic ramp deck with some card draw options. Growth Spiral is a great ramp card that also helps your kraken. Opt is a solid, cheap enabler. Hydroid Krasis is a solid finisher that plays well with a ramp/draw strategy.

Gekix on Temur Delver

Well now that Oko is banned it's certainly not in that form xD

But anyways, I sould give an honest opinion, so here it goes : 1. Trying to fit those 2 planeswakers you left out the best reason to spash green : Wrenn and Six . 2. Also I think a healthy number for inst/sorc in a delver deck is 28+ and you have less so the delver does not flip that often, I suggest you trim down on threats like Tarmogoyf ( and find a way to add W&6 ). 3. Moreover if you want to go with Dreadhorde Arcanist rather than Snapcaster Mage consider adding more 1 mana cantrips like Opt and Peek . 4. Sidenote : I think Hexdrinker is a good card to try in that shell.

I really like this iteration of drawing out your own deck. I think Wavebreak Hippocamp is definitely mainboard material. The ability stacks, so if you can manage to have 2 or 3 out at the same time, you will really capitalize on playing Opt or Glimpse of Freedom . I think you should run 2 or 3 Wavebreak Hippocamp s, a playset of Opt , and a playset of Glimpse of Freedom . In a deck where drawing is your main way to win, it can't hurt to have at least 8 instant draw spells, especially in synergy with The Magic Mirror and the Hippocamp.

I don't see the need for a playset of Brazen Borrower . 2 would be plenty. WIth the amount of draw/scry power already present in your deck, I don't think you would need Castle Vantress . Personally it feels too steep a mana ability to play well.

I would take out Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor and the 2nd Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer and add an additional Omen of the Sea . Narset, Parter of Veils is much more solid from a control standpoint than Kasmina, and offers quicker deck cycling. Although, that last one may be a matter of preference.

Hope this helps! Ultimately how you like to play matters most. I definitely like the structure of this deck, though. Seems like it's really easy to hit Thassa's Oracle and/or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries .

P.S. - if you wanted to go the Jace, Wielder of Mysteries route, adding in Contentious Plan would do really well with getting his -8 off.

Magnanimous on Bug Control

Why no one mana plays? There are plenty out there in your colors. To name a few, Deathrite Shaman , Thoughtseize , Fatal Push , Spell Pierce , Spectral Sailor .

Also, there are plenty of BUG decks already made, I think the idea of a UG tempo/control deck is pretty interesting though. You could replace some of your black removal with bounce spells and add in a few more creatures or planeswalkers to add pressure or to deal with opposing creatures. Courser of Kruphix , Tireless Tracker , and Thing in the Ice  Flip come to mind. In any deck (but especially this one) Brazen Borrower will be amazing, I really like Frilled Mystic and Hydroid Krasis , but they might be a bit too expensive to run 8 total. If I were to make a UG tempo deck, I'd have Thing in the Ice  Flip, Brazen Borrower , and maybe two other creatures and pack the rest of the deck with Opt , Unsummon , Censor , etc. with room for a few green bombs of your choice ( Tireless Tracker and Hydroid Krasis are good for that).

I mean I’m also seeing pretty easy Doomsday piles that could be made with her. Just add some cantrip draw spell like Opt and you got an easy win.
