V1.1 - Cannibalizing other decks to flesh mine out

Out

Ashenmoor Liege, Shattergang Brothers, Fell Shepherd, Walker of the Grove, Plague Boiler, Jar of Eyeballs, Vile Requiem, Empty the Pits, Rough / Tumble

In

Karametra's Acolyte - Green devotion mana dork. Xenagos, God of Revels - Generally great, explosive charges Balefire Dragon - Psuedo-board clear, can pump with Xenagos, God of Revels. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - Psuedo-rap, board control Bow of Nylea - Attacking death touch tokens are way more threatening, can't chunk block them. Devotion to green. Cultivate - Ramp is good. Ranger's Path - Ramp is still good. Into the Wilds - Semi draw, semi ramp, top of library manipulation. Xenagos, the Reveler - Ramp, tokens, whats not to like? Death's Presence - A bit win more, but re-using the stats from stacked tokens can be great.

Glad to be of help! It was late and I realized after I suggested still a few things you had already included but by a later point couldn't go back to edit them. I admit I never got into asking some questions perhaps on the exact power level or anything like that but I get why you might not wish to add some of these. I use all the ones named regarding that self-mill strategy (Laboratory Maniac etc) in a Kruphix, God of Horizons deck I have which is capable of some explosive plays when I start generating ridiculous amounts of mana and or cast something like Omniscience with ways to draw a crazy amount of cards. But it also plays a bunch of big creatures like the Eldrazi if I want to win in a more straightforward, combat-focused way. I get the appeal of wanting to build up a big boardstate, and Simic colours are great for that.

I'll also just say that I started Magic back in approx 2013 and was the colour pair I fell in love with for deckbuilding and during my first little while with the game me and some friends played at a pretty casual level too. In fact, before I even knew much of anything about all the various formats, I played a Simic deck which was like 80 cards filled with stuff like an Arcanis the Omnipotent with multiple ways to untap it and some other things with useful activated abilities, a playset of Roil Elementals which I protected with counterspells and Archetype of Endurance (they were fun to use alongside Explosive Vegetation and similar effects), Lifeblood Hydra, Horizon Chimera were others, and finally some goodies like Prophet of Kruphix (rip its commander banning) and later additions like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Some of this became a Vorel of the Hull Clade commander deck for a while, but I still really always liked the theme of lands early on which is why I made a Lord Windgrace deck and now most recently an Omnath, Locus of Creation deck.

And having a lot of lands can be made to work, it's for one thing unfortunate that many of the cards in this theme which allow you to play extra lands from hand or graveyard are so costly even despite some reprints so there were a lot of ideas I skipped suggesting. I still think you should keep an eye out for Ramunap Excavator if you have a good chance to acquire one because you do have a significant number of lands which either can be sacrificed, cycled, or in some way become a creature and at some point die, so having another way to earn a few more back could be useful outside of World Shaper, Splendid Reclamation, and The Mending of Dominaria which I see is nonetheless your general gameplan.

Some of my decks which can be seen on my profile are complete / nearly fully owned, but yet others I build them how I want them to be eventually a little later and I definitely get wanting to make choices that are budget friendly with myself still as a student. I have for one thing been smart or simply gotten lucky and picked up a lot of cards from buying/trades when they were either cheap / reprinted over the years which has made a few of my decks creep up in price now (my best example of this was acquiring a Sliver Queen for $100 CAD worth of trades (approx $76 US) like five years ago. Anyway, if I do think of more stuff which could be of use here I'll let you know btw!

TheOfficialCreator on How is Camaraderie a Bend?

I think Urabrask the Hidden was a bit of a stumble that also occurred with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Namely, Wizards designed the first ability, then went "what's the opposite?" and then put it on the card regardless of if that ability was in the color pie.

Plus, it's my personal opinion that the more expensive a spell is, the more it can diverge from the color pie. To an extent, obviously.

McToters on Winter is coming Jorn Snow

Hey there--love this deck! Two cards that come to mind right away would be Blizzard and Freyalise's Winds. The latter would be brutal for opponents since you would obviously still untap your stuff with your commander out. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger also seems like an apt upgrade to achieve the same strategy.

FYI--you are missing a majority of your lands on this list, I'm assuming those would be snow lands. Also, Emrakul is banned I think?

Again, awesome stuff and hopefully what I provided here helps!

Saw your reddit post, I don't reddit but I do lurk....

This is an unorganized brain dump of my thoughts on the deck. Pressed the playtest button above and goofed around with it a bit.

Anyone playing karametra knows how busted Whitemane Lion is. Thus I can make a logical guess that you purposely took it out. Mind you that for white+1 it is your most powerful ramp spell. Along with its friends Kor Skyfisher and Stonecloaker. I'm not saying you should run it, but maybe consider either that or stonecloaker if your play group has a lot of graveyard stuff happening.

One land to consider might be Mistveil Plains, I would only swap it in if you feel like you run out of threats.

37 lands might be too much? Maybe try 35-36 and see how you like it. You have karametra!

Lotus Cobra is another Tireless Provisioner which trigger off your general, I must suggest replacing Faeburrow Elder. That is partially preference and how you reason it is like this: if you feel like Tireless Provisioner is better than Faeburrow Elder it is time to swap in a cobra.

A tech swap might be Garruk's Uprising over Elemental Bond. For one if your trying to stompy them,, you should probably have more than 4 power. It also gives natural trample. The catch is it reduces your draw potential, which we can actually address.

How often does your Archangel of Thune go off? Do you feel its falling behind?

Cataclysmic Gearhulk is a potential alternate board wipe that gives you a creature. Tragic Arrogance does the same things, but you get to pick >:)

If you feel like your running out of ammo, Pokedex is worth trying out (Lifecrafter's Bestiary), Return of the Wildspeaker is a buff or draw, Garruk, Primal Hunter is draw or more creatures.

As for stompy bois, some I consider are Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (WARNING: High salt), Woodland Bellower (Tutor + body), Apex Devastator (goes brrrr). Shalai, Voice of Plenty (if your wide or get targeted a lot), Kaldra Compleat (high pressure, makes big thing bigger), Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar (Comes back and with a lot of lands hits hard), one of my favorite cards ever printed, "cute" swarm uhh... I mean Scute Swarm. (s)cute swarm goes nuts when you start dropping lands. Get the alt art for extra (s)cuteness.

Have fun!

Immortalys on Reki, the History of Legends

9 months ago

I usually end up winning through sheer numbers, combined with some finisher like Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, God-Eternal Rhonas or Heroes' Podium.

Reki allows for a lot of continuous card draw, and this deck has a little subtheme of cost reduction with cards like Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Rhonas's Monument, The Immortal Sun, Emerald Medallion and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma on top of the regular green ramp (aided by creatures like Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro who can both have Reki (who should always be on board) and themselves tap for mana and other Legendary cards like Nyx Lotus and Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest), which keeps the engine going even more.

I personally prefer to use Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as a finisher, but as you might imagine, the people you play him against aren't always happy to see him. Another type of "creature" finisher I like is Kamahl's Druidic Vow. With all the mana you're making with this deck it can quite easily be cast for X = 30+. But in general this deck doesn't have creature finishers (Vorinclex and God-Eternal Rhonas being the exceptions) as instead it tries to create a critical mass of big and tough creatures to hit the opponents hard with, preferably with the aid of some of the cards mentioned above. If you are looking for creature finishers though I would recommend running some of the Eldrazi Titans

@Nonary27: Just don't. Simic Hulk is just bad... Why you want to play Protean Hulk when you can play Hullbreaker Horror, Consecrated Sphinx, Nezahal, Primal Tide, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Sphinx of the Final Word & Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait etc? But when you really think you want to fill your deck with weird cards to somehow make Hulk work in simic: https://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveEDH/comments/arqrt5/simic_hulk_pile/

And yes, when you want to protect your combo you should run cheap/free counterspells. The cheaper the better. But in simic you shouldn't have mana problems, so you can also protect your stuff with 2 mana spells like Mana Drain/Keep Safe/Counterspell etc. (depending on your deck/format)
