Abzkaban on Ezuri budget

1 week ago

Looks good! You've got a lot of the Ezuri staples that don't break the bank. Looks like it would be pretty effective. I designed my Ezuri deck around elves. I'll leave a link to it here so you can take a look at it. You might find some ideas there.

Ezuri the Claw and the Little Green Men

Commander / EDH Abzkaban


A lot of variation in decks containing blue come from your meta which determine what control cards you need. For the most part what you've included looks fairly well-rounded. I do have a few suggestions with a budget in mind.

I had Urban Evolution on my list as well before I deemed it too slow. By the time you have mana to cast it, you shouldn't need the ramp it provides. There are also more efficient means of card draw. I can't begin to describe the card advantage you get from Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest. Your mana curve looks low enough that I think you could be taking advantage of them. And even if you needed more mana ramp (which I don't think you need too much more), Gyre Sage and Viridian Joiner would give you a kick in addition to your Marwyn, the Nurturer. If you want more draw effects from playing a single card, might I suggest Prime Speaker Zegana, Shamanic Revelation, or Soul's Majesty. Any one of them will net you more cards than you need.

The other thing I can't stress enough if Panharmonicon if it's not out of your budget. The value from having this out with Ezuri is crazy especially when you play cards like Cultivator of Blades and Experimental Aviator. You basically get two experience counters for every creature under 2 power that you put into play.

Also as an afterthought, if you wanted to get your Sage of Hours out faster, you could add in Momir Vig, Simic Visionary who is really just good for getting any creature you might need. He's excellent for drawing right into your infinite win con, though.

Nice deck! Ezuri is so much fun to play!

From your maybe board i would definitely add Chasm Skulker, Crystalline Crawler, Deepglow Skate, and your Master Biomancer is a must. All these add to your counters really well. If i would take something out to place those cards in I would recommend,Cultivator of Blades since the second half of the effect doesnt synergize that well since it doesnt add +1/+1 counters. Mer-Ek Nightblade does synergize well but this deck is built for buffing up creatures pretty fast and deathtouch on a creature that would destroy anything anyways is kind of a waste. I would probably get rid of 1 or 2 cards that enter as a copy and maybe a sorcery you have that doesnt do anything with counters to make room for the cards listed above.

I also forgot if you want to get crazy on your mana tap you should add Mirari's Wake and if you do go elves stack Cultivator of Blades with Joraga Warcaller then your elves are doing some crazy stupid +x/+x damage oh the thought of that just makes me want to build that deck now

Turn 2, there is a win condition with heritage but its slim, 3,4 you usually know the countdown to end game. I originally had Elite in the deck but i found that it slowed me down as it didnt really match up with the deck well, like it could, it didnt really slow it down but early costs you're looking for 1 drops over 2. by turn 3/4 you dont really care about costs and the token isnt really doing much.

Its been a while since i've tried it, maybe i'll give it a go again. Also going to try Cultivator of Blades there is some synergy there.

how 'bout board the weatherlight for access to Oketra's Monument, Samut, Voice of Dissent, Song of Freyalise, Walking Ballista and Paradox Engine. Cultivator of Blades could be a nice way to haste out and overun your your opponent if you can't get banefire or walking ballista high enough.

Cultivator of Blades is an example of a card with messed up legality. It doesn’t state it’s illegal or legal. It doesn’t list Brawl as a format at all on that page. Many other cards from that block and the next are similarly affected, but there is no pattern as to why. Desert of the Glorified is affected but not Desert of the Indomitable.
