It is time to ASCEND!!!
20 counters Smenty Smounters!
This list is designed to get an alt win with card:Simic Ascendency as efficiently as possible. We do so with Enter the Battlefield abilities, sweet synergies, and busted combos! Getting 20 counters never looked so easy... Or felt sooooo good.
The main value engine in the deck is none other than Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. You won't often be able to get her swinging in, but her passive ability is what we are really after here. Bouncing cards like Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig , Polukranos, Unchained , or my personal favorite Biogenic Ooze get you a TON of counters quickly. While those creatures offer the most for the strategy of the deck, getting food tokens off of goose should not be overlooked.
Another sure fire way to rack up counters quickly comes in the form of Voracious Hydra. He is the main reason we went the ramp base route with the deck, and his ETB effect that doubles the counter on him gets us to the win faster than any other card in the list! He can also be used to stave off creature decks alongside polukranos.
Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is in the list to add to the ramp package, get you a couple extra cards in your hand, and to give your creatures psuedo-vigilance
The silver bullet in the list is Yarok, the Desecrated. He DOUBLES the value you get out of just about every card you play in the list and coupled with thassa end games in the blink of an eye.
Hope you enjoy another competetive deck made out of jank cards from yah boy.
Hit me up if you have any sugestions or questions about what cards are in the deck.
