Ezuri, Claw of Progress

Legendary Creature — Elf Warrior

Whenever a creature with power 2 or less enters the battlefield under your control, you get an experience counter.

At the beginning of combat on your turn, put X +1/+1 counters on another target creature you control, where X is the number of experience counters you have.

Hi Guys! I've built an Ezuri, Claw of Progress +1/+1 counter deck but I'm having issues with consistency and it being a little slow. I don't know whether to go down the Elfball route either! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here's the deck:

So I'm in the middle of updating my Rashmi deck with cards from the last few sets. It's centered more around her ability and elves but it might still have some cards for you to consider. Rashmi's Elvish Teleportation

Before I proceed with some suggestions I just need to note that Shield of the Oversoul isn't legal in this deck. Cards with hybrid mana symbols have the color identity of both, so that's considered a white card as well as a green card.

I'd definitely add Ezuri, Claw of Progress . You may want to keep Primordial Hydra but Kalonian Hydra is another solid add. Since you can proliferate divinity counters Myojin of Life's Web is a powerful card and the high cmc means you'll be able to cast almost anything it gets with a Rashmi trigger. Vigor is cheap so I think it's an auto-include in counters decks honestly. I've used Nissa, Voice of Zendikar to great effect in my counters deck and even managed to ultimate her. Inspiring Call is a good way to draw cards and make sure you can attack with a horde of creatures without getting them board wiped. I'd definitely consider adding Inexorable Tide which would fit nicely in the slot of Shield of the Oversoul . Lastly you could think about Crystalline Crawler , Tezzeret's Gambit and Gilder Bairn .

I guess my only other suggestion would be to keep an eye on the new cards with proliferate coming in War of the Spark.

Well, Jace did get a Triumph after all. But even w/ (Finale of Promise), I still don't know if Sorin vs Nahiri will ever end in a way besides either or both dead on the spot.

Anyways, I'm trying to edit up two decks at the current time to achieve their Max Competitive status (Only 35%. -_-), & my Tetzimoc, Primal Death Deck is almost done as well; I just need 7 cuts; I'll handle this myself.

Despite this, nobody seems to be itching on my ( Ezuri, Claw of Progress +1/+1 Counter Deck.) & I'm going to have to ask AlwaysSleepy again to find more stuff for a Doomsday Package. I only have 3/5 bits confirmed. I just need 2 more; and/or a way to crack the pile open.

All that, set in stone, I'll have to wait on MORTAL ENGINES Vorthos for now... God be damned if Hazoret becomes an Eternal God... X/

I clearly still need help w/ my

Ezuri, Claw of Progress Deck. Not just to cut to 100, but for what to replace within that 100. Tetzimoc is actually almost done, but even my Gate.dec Deck is slower progressing than the Primal Death himself even is now. I'll work on the latter 2 for now, but I still need 2 more pieces to the Doomsday pile. (Already have Faithless Looting , Second Sunrise , & Grapeshot .) What other two pieces do I need I wonder; as well as a Cantrip to crack it open?

Finally, cdkime, I'm still in a bind between Akiri, & Bruse Tarl for a Partner Naya Equip-Voltron Deck. Since this will be Equipment only, & no Auras, I dunno what would be better between those two.

That, & with the new Vehicles of WAR, I'm contemplating a 5 color (For now.) Vorthos deck on Mortal Engines Again... I wonder...

I'd say run Ezuri, Claw of Progress because you have like 25 creatures that'll make a difference, and you already have Sage of Hours so that plus 5 experience counters at least with Ezuri is as many turns as you want

@cdkime: All right. Well, now I know what to do in case I do, for whatever reason, devise a Jeskai deck; Can the political trash; as much for all my lists.

Ol' Kraj probably wouldn't mesh that well in a deck w/ a fusion of Weenies that can buff themselves at <=2/* alone. Yeah, Ezuri, Claw of Progress would be good, but I'd personally avoid the Infect idea, unless it's for just one creature... I wonder...

Hmmm... Well, I'm dealing w/ the predictable Eldrazi Displacer idea, Hmm... Well, I guess such Pauper-Friendly craze could work, what to use alongside, I dunno… I'll see though.

Huh. Didn't think of that. I'll probably do just that, though I'm literally in the same status as Sorin Markov when he was trying to find the other 2 members of The Three (One, dead. The other, probably back on Zendikar, & Sorin? Maybe either Dead, or maybe unneeding of oxygen, thus the stone encasing is probably slowing him down; though why he isn't strong enough to break it, truly beyond logic.)

Well, for some more familiar insight; Digimon Tamer is Season 3 of the Original Digimon: Digital Monster series; & the character in question is a high ranking member of the (Quasi-?)Antagonist group Hypnos. If you don't remember the term "Wild Ones", it's just that not many Digimon fans remember Hypnos as an organization in the series that well. As for nearly everything else I mentioned even related to JP media, I wouldn't expect one to even recall such things to begin with; I'm usually not one to delve into conventional media (Ironically, on MTG Salvation Forums, there was a Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge Vorthos Deck based on Umineko (Seagulls; not to be confused w/ Seacats (???).); which was after the events of Higurashi (Cicadas); both of which fall under the same franchise name: When They Cry; though some titles with the following: Higanabana (On the Night the Red Spider Lily Blooms), & Hotarubi (When the Firefly Lights Burn), & the upcoming Ciconia no Naku Koro ni (Ciconia is actually Latin for Stork). Whoever made that Vorthos deck in the past, & even remembered something so unconventional for JP standards, I give (them?) credit of the Highest praise. ^_^

Alright; you probably read enough of this. Might as well put this in to end the fragging comment; I think I've confused you more than ever. My apologies.:

I think scrubbing the illicit content and some of the politics was an improvement, though I will not pretend to know what you are trying to say. I suppose the important thing is that you understand it, since it seems to be your way of expressing yourself.

For Green/Blue counters, are you trying to make a fun deck or something competitive? For fun, Experiment Kraj might be an interesting option. It was recently reprinted, so I expect it might increase its popularity some, but, as of right now, it seems to be fairly unused.

I think Ezuri, Claw of Progress is the traditional Simic +1/+1 counter commander though.

Aven Mindcensor , Leonin Arbiter , and Stranglehold all place limitations on library searching.

My SO has a pretty fun deck that runs Necropotence alongside Children of Korlis and graveyard recursion, allowing her to burn down to next-to-nothing, then sacrifice Children to recover the lost health. Necropotence ensures she draws into her recursion spells, allowing her to use Children again.

Upgrading your account on this site is a one-time payment of $5.00. Besides supporting this wonderful website, you also (a) get the ability to change your name's design, (b) can enable chat, allowing private one-on-one conversations with other users, and (c) it provides you the ability to edit your posts for a couple minutes after you make them.

There are not different levels to the upgrade--the base upgrade allows you to make as fancy as a username as you want, provided you are able to write the code (or have someone help you with the code) for it.

I presumed that you, being an active member of tappedout, designed this deck because you wanted to share your inner thoughts with other people. Some of these thoughts, however, such as the political ones, really do not belong in open discussion.

I am not sure I know how to comment on the names and things in your description. A whole lot of it is anime references I do not know (I think the only one I did recognize was Puella Magi Madoka Magica), and there is a lot of stream of consciousness that can be a bit hard to follow. I think what is important is (a) making sure you feel it is a good representation of yourself, and (b) that you are not discussing topics which really should not be raised in a public MTG forum.

I know that's not really helpful for your deck and description, but I am really reluctant to critique something you find so personal. It would be a bit silly for me to say how you should define and represent yourself!
