Momir Vig - Elves - Wizards - Counters

When i saw Momir Vig, Simic Visionary for the first time, i knew i had to make a commander deck with him. I love creatures, control and the toolbox/combo playstyle. I first tried to make a deck with mostly multicolored creatures and +1/+1 counter mechanics but it didn't turn out as poweful as i had imagined. It was too slow, vulnerable and kind of bulky at times, so i played around with some other ideas and finally decided to go with mostly Elves, particularly Druids to boost my mana, and to include some counter producers and a few heavy hitters, all paired with a decent amount of counter spells. I know it's not perfect yet (e.g. vulnerable against air and mass removal) but i think it is pretty decent in what it can do.

Beast Whisperer and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid work great with Momir's first ability when the crature pool is heavily leaning towards green/druids. This combo lets me tutor and play creatures, one after another. The Archdruid's activated ability is a lot of fun when i have enough mana to play him and six other Druids in one single turn and immediately steal an opponent's lands.

Vigean Graftmage works well paired with Marwyn, the Nurturer and other Druids, and with Incubation Druid or Wirewood Channeler he creates an infinite mana combo. Wellwisher, Timberwatch Elf and Immaculate Magistrate are further options.

Although i do not have any spells that could target him Sage of Hours is a must have here. Just gotta provide him with some counters which should not be much of a problem.

Ezuri, Claw of Progress & Immaculate Magistrate and other counter producers synergize with some Druids as well as Champion of Lambholt, Plaxcaster Frogling, Vigean Graftmage, Kalonian Hydra, and of course Sage of Hours

My goal is to ramp up, slow down my opponent, play Momir on turn 3 or 4, then get Beast Whisperer or Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, then Ezuri, then a few Druids, then play Sage of Hours and some of the combos to end the game.

Worthwhile Combos

Beast Whisperer + Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid + Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Incubation Druid + Vigean Graftmage
