Top 10 Cards I will Miss Post Rotation: #8 Master Biomancer

Keeping with the mythic theme of cards that I felt didn’t get the spotlight they probably deserved is another four drop multi-colored creature. This bad boy pumps all of your other dudes and has some nifty combos in standard. Too bad he can’t stick around for one more rotation with the Outlast ability from Khans of Tarkir as well as the Azban clan doing working off of +1 +1 counters as well. My pick for the #8 slot is none other than the Simic’s own mighty Master Biomancer

Although I did brew with him early on in both Innistrad/Ravnica and Ravnica/Theros days, he basically couldn’t find a sustainable home in the latter part of the Theros standard. The most success I did have with this dude was turning smaller mana dorks into actual late game threats so I decided to throw him in a Monogreen Devotion shell and see if he is worth a spot in the 60. I really wanted to pair him with Xenagos, the Reveler, but both occupy the same slot. However,Nissa, Worldwaker curves perfectly with the Elf Wizard making huge 6/6 trample lands:

As you can see, this deck acts a lot like a toolbox deck, finding the exact answer for whatever the board requires. My ultimate goal was to Master Biomancer into a Hornet Queen and I succeeded in doing so on my first game playing this!

So far the deck has been very successful and is VERY explosive. The two extra Kiora’s Followers are just what shrine was looking for. Basically an unanswered shrine with enough devotion makes for a quick game. ENJOY!
