Suns_Champion: Alloy Myr also works to power up Puppet Conjurer for infinite. Similar to Puppet Conjurer you also have Ghoulcaller Gisa, Lich Lord of Unx, and Myr Propagator,, although those last two are gonna need a lot of mana dorks. I can think of Leaden Myr, Silver Myr, Alloy Myr, Apprentice Wizard (if you have a producer it gets you to the for Propagator), Crystalline Crawler, Cultivator Drone (Propagator only), Gold Myr, Magus of the Coffers, Lotus Guardian (painfully expensive), Opaline Unicorn, Scuttlemutt, Vesper Ghoul (although limited), and Kozilek's Channeler.
Myr Turbine could be great as well. After playing it, Zur tutors Animate Artifact, Ensoul Artifact, or Tezzeret's Touch and puts it on Turbine, which then goes infinite with Intruder Alarm. Same idea with Summoning Station and Throne of Empires

Crystalline Crawler might be a better suggestion.
There's also something like Manamorphose, there might be more(?) but that's obviously a bit limited as a spell.
Be interesting to hear what you're planning to do with them.

Thanks for the advice! I really like Vizier of the Menagerie, and Lumbering Falls. I had Sakura-Tribe Elder, Kodama's Reach, and Rampant Growth in the deck originally (I think they all came with the PreCon). I mainly took them out because I have 9 creatures that either act as mana sources (like Crystalline Crawler and Rishkar, Peema Renegade) or fetch lands (one-offs like Solemn Simulacrum or repeatable like Fertilid). That being said most of my ramping ability uses Ezuri's counters to produce said mana, so I could see how that would be a problem if he wasn't around.I also didn't realize I had so many lands, so I may cut a few for fetch spells like Kodama's Reach!
My comment about the landbase was if there were any better utility lands to help with my win conditions. Until I can afford the shock, and check lands, the tap lands will have to suffice.
From your deck I'm really curious how a few cards perform:
1) Can you use Duplicant on Ezuri, Claw of Progress to protect him while still abusing the counters? Allow him to be exiled, and when someone board wipes or removes Duplicant, Ezuri would then come back? Just kidding, Duplicant doesn't return the exiled card when he dies.
3) Is there something you usually tutor for with Fauna Shaman?

keithallenlaw : Thanks, i try many ways to play this deck. I use proliferation trigger ( Bloodchief Ascension, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Crystalline Crawler, Tangle Wire and others ). But i dont use my general as a center of this EDH deck. Its only additional possibility to play, and proligeration trigger is just bonus. A very good bonus, as I have to admit :DThe main problem of fast decks is that their breath may soon be over and the game ends for them...and that is why i choose mid-game and late-game decks. But win with infinite combo in Atraxa in first four turns, that's something I will not reject. Play fun is good, but play competetive on tournament is better :)
Rhys_Fahey : This combo can work. When Thespian becomes a copy of Depths, the legendary rule will be applied and you have to choose which Dark Depths to remain. Of course, you are choosing without the counter (Thespian Stage). The original goes to the graveyard. Now a trigger of Dark Depths runs without counters and sacrifices this land to create the Marit Lage token.
Thank you for the compliment. I do my best ;)

Doom Blade should be a better piece of removal. I make it a hard rule to always have at least 1 versatile exile effect, Anguished Unmaking should help out. You also don't have much artifact or enchantment removal. I also highly doubt that your deck is fast enough to not need a single boardwipe, e.g. Austere Command, Merciless Eviction, Wrath of God, possibly even Cyclonic Rift. Other than that you just seem to be a little oversaturated on ramp that doesn't scale well into the late game to make your Genesis Wave larger. Some scaling ramp would be Crystalline Crawler, Growing Rites of Itlimoc/Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun Flip as these pieces of ramp allow you to spend huge amounts of mana in one turn on their own. I would also suggest looking into Hour of Promise, it doesn't become useless when you run out of basics. Also since you are new I don't know if you are aware of our lord and savior Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.
