Creature — Elemental Beast

Mutate (If you cast this spell for its mutate cost, put it ontop or underneath target non-Human creature you own. They mutate into the creature that is on top and that creature has all the abilities of every card that is underneath it.)

, : Look at the top card of your library. If it's a land card, you may put it onto the battlefield. If you don't put the card onto the battlefield, put it into your hand.

Kamashed on Simic Mutate Scute Swarm

4 weeks ago


Craterhoof Behemoth would be a crazy wincon, yet it is crazy expansive as well :D It is almost the same price as the whole deck rn, and I don't want to spend that amount of money since I'm playing ''just'' for fun with my friends.

Coiling Oracle looks cool, but I agree that Parcelbeast is better, given that I can use it's ability repeatedly (also I have decided to just buy both Parcelbeast and Migratory Greathorn, and see which one [or perhaps both?] works better).

I'll buy Dreamtail Heron as well, since it's very cheap, but it's 4 mana cost on mutate means that I would have to wait two more rounds to play Scute Swarm and Dreamtail Heron at the same time with a mana, so they can immediately copy. Or I could just play it after already copying with Migratory Greathorn or Parcelbeast, but in that case i think i could use that 4 mana better.

Thanks a lot for help, appreciate it!

Since your goal is lots of mana and creatures, I think that Craterhoof Behemoth would fit perfectly as a wincon. As an alternative to Parcelbeast, I have used Coiling Oracle before, but in your case Parcelbeast might be a better option with all the mutate targets, and being repeatable. I love the idea of a mutating Scute Swarm deck since you copy all of the mutations as well. Perhaps Dreamtail Heron could be a good mutate to copy since it gives flying and card draw.

So I just found out that you can take a card with mutate like Parcelbeast and drop it on top of a permanent that's only temporarily a creature (vehicle, equipment, planeswalker, land, etc.) and it will permanently become only the top creature but keep it's other abilities. This way you can clone or proliferate your animated land, 1/1 sol ring creature or your mutant 'planeswalker' monster that can't die from having 0 loyalty counters or have creatures directed to attack it, yet can still activate loyalty abilities. (Clearly we're playing the game as Wizards intended...) Pairs really well with Sarkhan the Masterless. Also with some commanders if the mutant is on top. Because while the commander is still a commander, it is no longer a legendary- meaning that you can add it and other legendaries to your list of cloneable etb creatures that won't be dead on arrival.

I just noticed as well that you run both Parcelbeast and Scute Swarm have you considered adding Retreat to Coralhelm and any bounce land such as Guildless Commons? Its a bit convoluted but a fun combo and the bounce land would also go infinite with Kodama of the East Tree and Field of the Dead making you infinite zombies.

Dreamscape Artist can be pretty good, Parcelbeast is similarly useful in Simic Lands. You could even go so far as Silverglade Pathfinder. All three also work well with Retreat to Coralhelm to untap themselves to keep digging. I run Retreat as a combo engine in my Simic deck, but it is also used as more of a synergy piece. Dreamscape is the best I'd say, and combos with your Excavator already.

There is also Stone-Seeder Hierophant to ramp you per landfall, which synergizes better with your 2 mana lands than a Lotus Cobra or Tireless Provisioner would, though all three are very strong potentially.

So here's a deck I put together from cards in your collection:

Zimone EDH for DodgeitRamit

well actually, most of the cards are ones you have but I recommend buying the ones listed in the sideboard to complete the deck. The total cost of all the cards in the sideboard is only about $6 if you buy them from Also you may need to get more Forests and Islands but those are typically 1 cent a piece.

the deck is a commander/EDH deck (not sure which format you play, but EDH is the most popular. its also more casual than the other formats and more fun imo). the commander is Zimone, Quandrix Prodigy and the strategy is to accumulate land and card advantage through her abilities and those of similar creatures like Parcelbeast. It also includes payoffs for playing lots of lands, such as Rampaging Baloths. You have a lot of decent instants and sorceries in your collection, so I included many of them in the deck which gives it a good amount of control capability as well.

Hope this helps!

Have you considered Scute Swarm? Mutated Swarms can lead to some great boards.

Parcelbeast mutated onto Scute Swarm is fun.

Lol great deck name. Personally I would make these changes:

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove -> Sakura-Tribe Scout

Scute Swarm -> Retreat to Coralhelm

Cultivate -> Tireless Tracker

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood -> Simic Growth Chamber

Howling Mine -> Parcelbeast

Azusa, Lost but Seeking -> Skyshroud Ranger

Ancient Greenwarden -> Tatyova, Benthic Druid

The above changes would lower your mana curve while retaining the game plan. Also, they allow for a combo: crab + scout/ranger + retreat + growth chamber = infinite mill. The additional draw effects would make it easier to set up the combo
