Fuel for the Cause Discussion

Looks fun!
I would look at some of the new tribal stuff from CM17. I know as singles now, some of them can be a bit expensive, the dragon deck has all the ones that would be good in this deck, most notably Kindred Discovery.

You could look at some pump options like True Conviction. Also, there are enough feather counters going around you could probably play proliferate triggers pretty consistently, so maybe Inexorable Tide, Fuel for the Cause, or Steady Progress. Contagion Engine might also be good, but $$.

Also what about Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker?

Best of luck!!!

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I have a few suggestions for you:

In that case, you should cut Cauldron of Souls and Fuel for the Cause. I'd recommend running Ajani, Mentor of Heroes instead.

Hi,

Nice to see another Ezuri player. In many respects, your Ezuri deck resembles my own. Creatures that synergize really well with your commander are Thrummingbird, Glen Elendra Archmage, Zameck Guildmage and Avenger of Zendikar.

With so many triggered abilities in your deck, I would also really consider adding Strionic Resonator. Fuel for the Cause is a really nice counterspell for this deck and I'd consider adding Fungal Sprouting; like Avenger, this can be used to give you a whole bunch of experience tokens all at once with Ezuri on the field.

Hope any of this helps!

This looks awesome so far. I like the small spells, fat creatures approach.

If you have room for another colorless land, Novijen, Heart of Progress makes an alright secondary Gavony Township. Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker are also colorless and don't trigger your commander, but they're just freakin' sweet if you can proliferate them... maybe with a Fuel for the Cause.

Sage of Fables, Zameck Guildmage, or Novijen Sages might be worth it if you need more funky card draw, and Spike Weaver might be good if you are slower and need a fog effect.

On the other hand, if you wanna go fast, I think a great finisher could be Champion of Lambholt. Retribution of the Ancients is also an amazing way to pick off creatures for one mana.

Finally, some of my favorite janky build-around cards of all time, the counter enablers - Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, Ivorytusk Fortress, Mer-Ek Nightblade, Tuskguard Captain, Bramblewood Paragon, etc. These won't make your deck better, but maybe more fun. Big, fun, fat, lifelinky, flying, deathtouchy, tramply 10/10s.

You pretty much already nailed it though. Good stuff as always.

You should possibly look into cards that help with protection and ramp the +1's. I think these could help: Fuel for the Cause , Grim Affliction , Steady Progress and Thrummingbird

I really like the Beastmaster Ascension and Defense of the Heart. Nice and efficient.

Current Deck Criticisms/Upgrades

  • Tooth and Nail, Craterhoof Behemoth, and Blightsteel Colossus seem out of place. Tooth and Nail feels like there should be a combo win in here to fetch. I don't know how you play, but I always hold a few creatures in my hand. I try to stay around 2-4 threats on the field at once so I can recover from wrath effects. Craterhoof could be an Overrun essentially, but that's merely a preference I believe.
  • Living Death feels too symmetrical. You don't want them to get their threats back. Sun Titan might do the same job albeit it more slowly.
  • Reanimate feels like not enough punch for the deck for a one-and-done effect. Phyrexian Reclamation is a permanent source of card advantage.
  • Triumph of the Hordes is another card that could be Overrun/Overwhelming Stampede for one more colorless mana. More bang for the buck than +1/+1.
  • Seedborn Muse - You don't have a lot of tap effects or cards with flash. What is this card adding to the deck?
  • Counterspell - Negate and Arcane Denial are easier to cast with your mana base even though the former is slightly limited. The latter provides replaces itself. Both also seem better than the conditionally useful Corrupted Resolve.
  • Crop Rotation - Is this the Inkmoth Nexus-finder? If you need more infect creatures, I would just add more creatures instead of fetching up a land.
  • Slip Through Space - Although not a cantrip, Artful Dodge does the same thing and you can use it twice via flashback.

New Card Suggestions

I would strongly recommend some mana ramp and mana fixing:

Increase Color Availability

Ramp/Color Fixing

Proliferate

Threats
