MtG FNM Report – Simic Combo

Another Friday Night Magic at OuterLimits in Melville. This time I took the Simic Mimic deck a.k.a Com-Boba Fett. Here’s the list:

4 Arbor Elf
4 Mystic Genesis
4 Farseek
4 Rapid Hybridisation
4 Elusive Krasis
3 Cylonic Rift
4 Biovisionary
4 Urban Evolution
4 Master Biomancer
4 Clone
2 Thragtusk
3 Cackling Counterpart
3 Stolen Identity
4 Simic Charm
4 Breeding Pool
4 Hinterland Harbor
8 Island
8 Forest

The point of this deck is fairly straight forward, I want to drop a Biovisonary or Master Biomancer and clone the hell out of it for either the combo win or just beat down with giant creatures.

Round 1: 1-2 vs Esper Mill
Managed to take the 1st round with a sneaky Biovisionary win. He wasn’t expecting it, so with one on the board I was able to Cackling Counterpart at the end of his turn and Stolen Identity in mine for the four required. In games 2 and 3 his control was just too strong.

Round 2: 0-2 vs UB agro?
Faced a very strange deck in round two. Seemed to be full of small black and blue creatures with no synergy. I flooded out both games… and was beaten down without doing anything.

Round 3: 0-2 vs 4 Colour Control
Apparently his fourth colour was only for sideboard… but the Verdicts, Revelations and Detention Spheres were enough to keep me out of the game.

Round 4: 2-0 vs Mono Green
Finally a deck without wrath’s in the main board. I took the first game by cloning Master Biomancer up to a 16/18 and the second game I squeezed out a Biovisionary combo on 1 life.

Overall I wasn’t very impressed with this build. It just doesn’t do enough and has far too many dead draws when behind. That being said, it was fun when it worked and I got to pull off both win conditions, so I shouldn’t complain.

“He tired of his fellow researchers and their useless prattling, so he decided to make a network of scholars with whom he could carry a conversation.” -Biovisionary, flavour text
