If you need a big blue creature, my favorite is Stormtide Leviathan. I also like Chasm Skulker and Akroma, Angel of Wrath have gotten me out of a few good scrapes. Expensive deck for cards you got laying about. Not bad.

These I would cut based on the expenses/efficiency:

Dryad Arbor, Zoetic Cavern, Khalni Garden are lands that can trigger ezuri.

Managorger Hydra, Tuskguard Captain, and Phantom Nantuko are great creatures.

Hooded Hydra, Hangarback Walker, and Chasm Skulker are must-haves.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood give counters

Other good cards: Burnished Hart, Gyre Sage, Hornet Queen, Inspiring Call, Progenitor Mimic, Eldritch Evolution, Green Sun's Zenith, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Verdant Confluence, Rishkar's Expertise, Asceticism and more.

For planeswalkers i would suggest Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

Another thing to note is that proliferate works on experience counters so that means: Viral Drake, Tezzeret's Gambit, Thrummingbird, Skyship Plunderer(he's basically a single target proliferate)

Hey, so I wanted to return the favor and look at yourdeck. I like it and have a similar one on another site. I only have one suggestion but it is a good one since drawing cards is your purpose here. Chasm Skulker can get out of hand for you very quickly and can help make an army of dorks for you if he dies.

That is a great deck!Really loved the creativity there, and the only question I have is: why the hell only 3 Chasm Skulker? That card is lovely :)

Ever thought about using creatures that utilize handsize or draw for power? Chasm Skulker would synergize great with craterhoof if you draw big with Zegana and pop him with a beast within. Multani, Maro-Sorcerer is shrouded and doubles your draw with each time you put Zegana or a copy of her on the field.

The more I think about Murderous Cut, the more I like it. I do like how Damnation let's me kill my own Chasm Skulker, though. Maybe I can find something to drop, and run 2 Cuts and 1 Damnation?

Control Magic kinds of effects can be awesome when you let opponents cheat cards into play. Tangle, Moment's Peace, and Constant Mists are great political tools. Chasm Skulker looks like it has lots of draw effects to pump it fast.
