Royal Assassin

Creature — Human Assassin

: Destroy target tapped creature.

Plague of Vermin both gives you creatures and takes down your life and Royal Assassin seems like good includes for your deck. Id say you got more creatures than you need, and you could put that into enchantments that give you more consistency and flexibility. Say Hibernation's End, or Defense of the Heart, and Wild Pair

My dumb brain wants to add more black cards for balance's sake, though making a Simic deck that can run black board wipes is such a clever way of handling Archelos since nothing about his design screams Black in a gameplay sense. Forcing the third color beyond a small splash would risk muddling the streamlined approach you took for the deck.

Anyway, lemme ignore that and suggest more Black stuff.

Binding the Old Gods can grab you any forest card untapped (including the nonbasic ones) after destroying something while Archelos is untapped. It's effectively removal and potential untapped land ramp in a neat little package, made better by the fact that your land is going to come into play at the beginning of your upkeep after Archelos naturally untaps by himself without any additional help.

Similar principle with Deathsprout

Royal Assassin seems pretty neat for obvious reasons

Skeletal Swarming and might also be worth considering if you want some untapped skeletons. Dunno how that would help with the landfall strat tho.

You might like these: Vengeful Pharaoh, Approach of the Second Sun, Royal Assassin, Intrepid Hero, Vizkopa Guildmage, Maddening Imp (this one is really cool here; if you use the Imp's ability while you have a Ghostly Prison or similar effect on board, your opponent has to spend mana to allow their creatures to attack. if they don't, they lose the creatures), Wall of Souls, Souls of the Faultless

I belive that is correct. Think of it like this. I can't use Royal Assassin if there's no tapped creatures. Even though Royal Assassin is tapped and could target its self, it can't even be activated beforehand because there is no legal target befor the cost is paid.

Ezuri's Predation has a ruling that states, Players can’t cast spells or activate any abilities in between the Beasts entering the battlefield and fighting the other creatures. If the Beasts entering the battlefield cause any abilities to trigger, those abilities will be put onto the stack after Ezuri’s Predation is finished resolving.

If you used Esix, Fractal Bloom to target Royal Assassin, do the Beasts enter the battlefield then fight, then transform into royal assassins since Esix would be unable to trigger until after Ezuri resolves?

No problem man. Looking closer at your deck, I would try this:

If you can afford dual lands like Watery Grave or Drowned Catacomb it would also help a lot

Definitely need some Inquisition of Kozilek to round out the Thoughtseize for your discard suite (I recommend a full playset).

4 Ultimate Price is a mistake. There are better removal options in GB colors (like Victim of Night , Go for the Throat ).

Have you considered running the OG assassin, Royal Assassin ?

Royal Assassin not a blocker but stops fatty from swinging
Every creature is an amazing blocker when you have Vigor on the battle field
Also Tuktuk the Explorer , and Reef Worm makes them think twice
my favorite is AEther Membrane I know you said no defender but it's still worth mentioning
