Solemn Simulacrum Returns To Give Ramp Decks A Boost

A Core Set staple returns to aid ramp strategies in Standard!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Game Spot, a Core Set veteran makes a triumphant return! Welcome back to Standard, Solemn Simulacrum!

This lonely robot has been played in many formats over the years, and will no doubt find another home in Core Set 2021 Standard.

When Solemn Simulacrum enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic land card, put that card onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

When Solemn Simulacrum dies, you may draw a card.

By today’s standards, a four-mana Rampant Growth effect isn’t exactly ground breaking, but the ability being attached to a 2/2 body that can block and draw a card is still great value. Expect to see multiple copies of this metal-man included in Core Set 2021 Standard ramp decks.
