Vivien, Champion of the Wilds

Legendary Planeswalker — Vivien

You may cast creature spells as though they had flash.

+1: Until your next turn, up to one target creature gains vigilance and reach.

-2: Look at the top three cards of your library. Exile one face down and put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order. For as long as it remains exiled, you may look at that card and you may cast it if it’s a creature card.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds Discussion

Lowly_Hollow on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I think Hope of Ghirapur has several ways to combo. What people haven't seemed to think of yet is giving creatures flash (or other legendary spells if there are ways to give them flash) with cards like Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and abusing his ability on opponents turns.

I am getting the idea that I should bump Deadeye Navigator, as I don't have anything that combos with him nor do I plan to, but regardless it being in play points a huge target on my head. With that said, I can't think of anything else besides Ixidor that will flip a Morph for me if I need it in a pinch. Any suggestions are most welcome.

You can choose to cast either half, provided the effect allows you to cast the half you wish to cast. For example, with an impulse draw allowing you to cast any type of card, you could cast either the Adventure or the creature. If you exiled it with Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , you could only cast the Beanstalk Giant , since Vivien only allows you to cast creatures.

The rule on point is:

715.3. As a player casts an adventurer card, the player chooses whether they cast the card normally or as an Adventure.

But that's not really helpful. Here's some more useful citations:

If you cast an adventurer card as an Adventure, use only its alternative characteristics to determine whether it's legal to cast that spell. For example, if Giant Killer is exiled with the last ability of Vivien, Champion of the Wilds, you can't cast it as Chop Down.

Throne of Eldraine Release Notes

You can cast an Adventure with Kess. To determine if it's legal to cast, start off by considering only the characteristics you're casting and go from there.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds allows you to flash in creatures at the end of your opponents turn to evade Kaya's Wrath and Realm-Cloaked Giant

hi GhostChieftain,
My meta is a 75% so Mindslicer can be devastating.
I just cut Bane of Progress from my deck .I have used it to slow down enemy decks by cutting mana rocks, but 6 mana as you said felt too much some times. It was a dead card sitting in my hand.
I know i need instant speed interaction but i want to be able to roll out Karador as early as possible to start gaining value. i will think of your suggestions though, i might go for Vivien, Champion of the Wilds / Yeva, Nature's Herald so i can covert all my creatures to instant speed answers.
Thanks for checking out my deck!

You can always try using Vivien, Champion of the Wilds as a backup flash enabler.

Maybe also consider Simic Ascendancy as a second copy of Mayael's Aria in case it gets countered or exiled.

Stonecoil Serpent May be something to pick up once the new set drops.

Steelbane Hydra Is also another one coming out in the new set that will provide some more removal to the deck.

Pir, Imaginative Rascal acts like an additional hardened scales except it goes for all counters.

Maybe some flash enablers could be good like Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Yeva, Nature's Herald so you can play them during opponents turns.
