EDH is my jam! I’ve been playing Magic for over 8 years and I’ve built decks in every color combination. I love exploring the crazy possibilities in this game, and I enjoy teaching new players how to throw down.

Araxleon - I think finale of devastation is a great finisher for most creature-based decks, but in Volo I prefer our mass-pump effects to be printed on creatures, not sorceries. I suppose we could run this to tutor out craterhoof, assuming we only need one copy of it to swing for victory… but overall it seems a bit too mana hungry… espescially if we want Finale’s other pump ability too. It could definitely be good, It’s just a bit off-theme for my taste. Thanks for the suggestion!

Dangerwillrobinson79 - Thanks for the upvote and comment! In my experience the turn length in Volo is much quicker than most other Simic decks I’ve played. In an average hand, we can clearly see the line of play, which means fewer choices to slow down the turn. Also, unlike Aesi, there aren’t very many effects triggering during our turn, other than Volo’s ability and maybe some card-draw off creatures entering. I almost always have my next turn mapped out during my opponents turns, and it’s pretty rare that a turn takes longer than 2 minutes. Hope this helps!
