Tricky Terrain Precon: Decklist & Spoilers

In Commander, the blue-green color pair or Simic is best known for its value plays. Amassing tons of lands, drawing bunch of cards, and simply firing on all cylinders. Some players say that this play style is a bit overused, but others just love it. If you belong in the later group, you’re surely going to enjoy playing with Tricky Terrain precon.

In this article, you’ll find all currently revealed information about it. On May 29th, full decklist as well as all the new cards for this deck were revealed. It looks like that Tricky Terrain has a ton of valuable reprints, and new additions are also pretty cool.

With that said, let’s start by exploring what the deck’s game plan is.

Ramping and Valueing

You’re going to want to put a bunch of lands in play with this deck. Because that’s what Simig mages do. Oh, and when you get those lands in play? You’re going to generate some value in various ways. You can bet there will be a lot of stuff that you could do with all that mana.

But if you’re worried that the deck will feel bland, take a look at the main and secondary commander for the Tricky Terrain precon. You might just change your mind.

Omo, Queen of Vesuva

Now this card is absolutely wild. When it comes into play or attacks, you get to put an everything counters on a creature and a land. What will that do?

While Omo is in play, each land with this counter gets all land types, and each creature with this counter is every creature type. Now this allows you for some very unusual play patterns. And honestly, the world is your oyster. You can take Omo in any direction you’d like. Where do you want to go? Let us know in the comments.

Jyoti, Moag Ancient

Casting your commander multiple times per game can be annoying. However, that’s not necessarily the case with Jyoti. First, this deck ramps, which means you can quickly get around Commander tax. Second, you get a 1/1 Dryad Forest land creature for each time you’ve cast Jyoti from your command zone. Now, that’s pretty neat, right?

Furthermore, your land creatures also get +X/+X on each combat, where X is Jyoti’s power. Now that can be +2/+2, but with some buffs that pump effect could be massive.

That’s a wrap for Tricky Terrain precon. Well, at least for now. More information is coming in the next few weeks, so make sure to check back occasionally. We’ll make sure to keep this article up to date with all current info.

Oh, and one last thing. If you like shiny, and premium cards you might be interested in the Collector’s Edition version of Tricky Terrain deck.

Tricky Terrain Precon Collectors Edition

What’s special about this edition apart from a different box and higher price? Something pretty neat – all 100 cards in the deck have the special new foiling called Ripple foil. It’s like ripples in a pool of water, which really makes the cards stand out.

Plus both main and secondary Commander use an alternate art, different from the one in the regular deck. You saw them above, next to their regular versions. If you like shiny cards, you’re probably going to enjoy this version. On the other hand, getting the regular one will certainly be cheaper. As far as the game play goes, both decks contain the exact same cards, the only difference are aesthetics.

The other decks also come with two different versions. If you want to know more about them, give our article about Modern Hoirzons 3 Commander precons a read.

Until next time, have fun, and may your draw a ton of cards and always have enough mana when playing your Tricky Terrain deck.
