Ainok Survivalist Discussion

ToffMcSoft on Ancestral Animar

Hey Craig,

Played 4 player pod competitive 2 days ago, made some last minute modifications to play something closer to what you have but blended with my deck.

Drew into an awesome hand with this combo:

Temur Sabertooth + Cloud of Faeries + Wild Growth (this was added from your recommendation)

Had Fierce Empath as well, tutored for Soul of the Harvest for the win.

I'd strongly consider adding Temur Sabertooth to your build. You've got 2 pieces of the puzzle already between Peregrine Drake & Cloud of Faeries.

Personally, I'd drop Ainok Survivalist

Also, Morph creatures combo with Animar and Cloustone Curio since the morph cost is reduced. Consider Ainok Survivalist, Den Protector, or Stratus Dancer to go along with Rattleclaw Mystic. Also, Beastcaller Savant works in this loop.

While I understand that you have a reason for the massive amount of artifact/enchantment removal, there are much better ways to deal with them than running a ton of narrow answers. You could run more versatile cards, like Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, who has many abilities that synergize well with the deck, and also functions as artifact/enchantment removal when necessary. The next possibility is fitting in more recursion, which can be used to reuse your removal when necessary, or get back other important cards when there's nothing threatening on the table. Eternal Witness and Den Protector are some great recursion options. Finally, most of the options you are running are fairly weak, and don't synergize with the deck. Acidic Slime is one of the best green removal tools, and even gives you an experience counter. If you need responses at instant-speed, you could try either of the morph options, Ainok Survivalist and Nantuko Vigilante. And finally, if you need mass artifact/enchantment removal, Bane of Progress is a great option.

With such a heavy focus on removing artifacts and enchantments, you may have let creature removal fall by the wayside. Ulvenwald Tracker is one of the best cards in Ezuri for its ability to function as repeatable creature removal.

One more thing: I really dislike Urza's Incubator in this list. Most elves have very little colorless in their costs, so often this will only be reducing their cost by 1, or even not at all. If you still want an effect like this, Herald’s Horn is a great option that also functions as card draw.

ThallionDarkshine on Ezuri Morph

Zoetic Cavern seems decent as a morph to trigger Ezuri and then flip to serve as a land. Willbender is one of the best morphs for its ability to protect your stuff from targeted removal. Kheru Spellsnatcher is very mana intensive, but offers a very powerful flip ability. Ainok Survivalist is a decent piece of artifact/enchantment removal. Broodhatch Nantuko is a decent way to produce a bunch of tokens off of people attacking you. I really like Temur Sabertooth as a repeatable bounce outlet. I would also suggest Kodama's Reach and Viridian Joiner as some great pieces of ramp. Fathom Mage is an incredibly powerful card draw engine in any Ezuri deck.

I'm not really sure what Thran Turbine is doing in here. Simic Cluestone seems ok, but I like Simic Keyrune much better for its ability to turn into a difficult to kill creature that can accumulate counters. In this same vein, Lumbering Falls is a great land for this deck.

Check out my Ezuri list (We're Gonna Need a LOT of Dice) for more inspiration. It may not have a morph package, but there are lots of great options for your deck.
