Sia, Of the Lost World

Legendary Planeswalker: Sia

+1: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool for each creature you control

-3: Create three 2/2 Pegasus creature tokens with flying and hexproof

-8: You get an emblem with "Creatures without flying can't attack"


Kind of light on the Horse angle, but it made me think of Pegasus and Sacred Mesa type stuff. Expensive ultimate that gives you a permanent Moat for your island of pretty flying horses.

How about a Simic colored Legend that wants to turn your opponents lands into islands in a tempo controling way (Flood Counters maybe?). i.e. Spreading Seas or Stormtide Leviathan

Love these builds. Nice job.

I like to run the 4x Spreading Seas

2-3x Runed Halo

2x Porphyry Nodes

Tron is everywhere right now. The seas is one of the best enchantments anyway because it cantrips.

You could probably get some mileage out of Convincing Mirage and Spreading Seas .

Try Spreading Seas in the sideboard. It’s decent as Tron hate and also can be used to gank decks like Jund that run super greedy manabases. I’m also surprised to see no Force of Negation , because it’s one of the strongest reasons to run Pitch blue. Heck, it’s the reason the deck can even be named that! I also don’t like Return to Nature in this list because you can counter any problem card this would hit.

looks pretty good... Gigadrowse is worth considering over Downpour imo because you can tap lands too.... Mizzium Skin might be better than Robe of Mirrors ... but i personally like to "set it and forget it" and have one less thing to worry about leaving mana open for.... and the there is also Vapor Snag as possibly being better than Unsummon . Remand is the priciest card that i can think of that this deck could really use... Spreading Seas is also worth considering as a remand alternative or sideboard option.

Legendary Creature - Human Druid


Other druids you control gain forestwalk.

Tap an untapped druid you control: Put a seed counter on target land. That land is a forest for as long as it has a seed counter.

Whenever you tap a land for mana, add an additional G.


So he's green for the last ability. The second ability basically is Spreading Seas . The red is a strech, but he seems weird in simic.

Make a powerful legend you wouldn't like to play (doesn't matter which format).

I usually see a lot of Fog spells paired with Approach. Riot Control is one of my favorite Fogs because it's one of very few that prevents burn and it gains you life, too. Pay No Heed is another spell to prevent burn. Ethereal Haze and Holy Day are also options.

I could be wrong, but I seriously doubt Growth Spiral at Instant speed is worth the multicolor CMC - Explore would be fine at Sorcery speed. That said I don't think either is particularly good. You'd get more mana-mileage out of Fertile Ground .

I consider Negate one of the best counterspells in the game. You can use removal for everything it doesn't work on. ( Celestial Flare , Blessed Alliance , Beast Within , Generous Gift , Imprisoned in the Moon , Pongify , Ratchet Bomb ) Declaration of Naught might be useful to get your devotion up.

I suggest dropping all the Leylines. I like Teyo, the Shieldmage for hexproof. There's also Shalai, Voice of Plenty . You might also consider a sideboard copy of Sanctimony .

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip if you like Grow from the Ashes.

More control spells: Nevermore , Oblivion Ring , Journey to Nowhere , Reprobation , Lignify , Choke , Quicksilver Fountain Spreading Seas , Pithing Needle .

Probably as much draw and deck thinning as you can fit will help speed you to your wincon - Harmonize , Halimar Depths , Divination , Serum Visions , Terramorphic Expanse

I hope some of this has been helpful!!

I can't recommend Seahunter enough for any merfolk-centric deck. The ability to put any old fishy directly into play, at instant speed and heedless of its mana cost, is invaluable.

While using Donate to ensure your opponent has an island is certainly... imaginative, there are much better ways to accomplish the same. I'd run Spreading Seas , Sea's Claim , Reef Shaman and Tideshaper Mystic before considering Donate.
