Master Biomancer Discussion
3 days ago
Loaming Shaman could help with the mill problem I know he isn't human but he helps me out a lot. I found some humans and elves you might like Deathrite Shaman,Grim Flayer,Grim Haruspex,Meren of Clan Nel Toth,Master Biomancer,Hamlet Captain,Kazandu Tuskcaller,Lighthouse Chronologist,Xathrid Necromancer,Zulaport Cutthroat they are all under 3 so you can use them with Abundance. Have you thought about Sultai Ascendancy to help with your draws or Rhystic Study? Also if your doing humans for the main theme I would try and use allies and werewolves they are pretty strong as a group plus you are already using Moonmist its just a thought sorry do make this so long hope some of these help you out! =)

Perhaps modern is that little bit too fast for strategies revolving around playing a 4 cmc creature, with no protection and no ramp, then playing an aura, and then playing a threat, which does not have haste... If you want to play UG with +1/+1 counters, perhaps a more stable early game could be
4 x Experiment One
4 x Cloudfin Raptor
4 x Hardened Scales
4 x Coiling Oracle
Also not expensive cards in any sense of the word. Hardened scales also increases the value of Blessings of Nature.
Index is really bad. Not only is it card disadvantage, but without ways to shuffle your deck, you'll occasionally be able to see how you will draw 5 non-relevant cards, and have no way to change this.
So I would remove
3 x Index
2 x Master Biomancer
3 x Trygon Predator
It seems like you really like Master Biomancer. But a game where you have two in your first hand, in 20-land deck, is lost. It takes way too long to set up, compared to how easy it is to disrupt (even for other very budget-friendly decks), even if it doesn't die to Lightning Bolt. But 2 of them seems good. Jhessian Infiltrator can currently, with 2 other cards, deal 6 damage by turn 6. Experiment One or Cloudfin Raptor can do quite a bit better than that, especially with hardened scales.

ah, now I understand why you don't have Master Biomancer in here!
Hangarback Walker can be mana intensive, however you'll not have that issue since you're playing with ezuri in mind.
Primal Vigor is fine, a little expensive though.
Same could be said for Hornet Queen
Parallel Lives is tonnes of fun, though i don't know how extensive your token game is rn.
all that said, I'm gonna yoink the current list for... research purposes lol.

@feyn_do_alduin - Thank you for the kind words!
Bow of Nylea is very versatile, which is great in edh. It's a good card! I was thinking I would never use the counters, but then I thought about using them on Ezuri himself, and I was sold. I'll try to fit it in!
I had not seen Soul Foundry before. The only downside with this is that, should the artifact be destroyed (a common occurrence in edh, as I'm sure you know), then I would lose the creature. But , that said, it's still a good card, and U'll see if I can squeeze it in the build.
Master Biomancer is one I hear often. The only issue with this is that it gives counters to creatures before they hit the board; meaning, they won't trigger Ezuri. Now obviously I have creatures that are already too big, but I want as many experience counters as I can get, since that's how the deck grows. Thus, although it is a great card, Biomancer will most likely not see play in my build. Were this an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice build, however...
You asked about what to put in if the infect cards were cut. I've actually been considering removing that aspect, myself. My playgroup has been engaged in a rather cancerous arms race as of late, with the likes of Sen Triplets, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and Sliver Overlord. So I'm trying to clean up our group. Were I to cut infect, I would go full-blown token generation. I would introduce such cards as Hangarback Walker, Awakening Zone, Hornet Queen, as well as Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor on top of the already included Doubling Season. What do you think about that? Let me know :)

Love the deck! it's wonderfully eeeeeeevil work of madness. That said, I have three suggestions;
-Bow of Nylea for counters, combat tricks, and probably the most important role: refilling your library for those long drawn out games with weary opponents.
-Soul Foundry combos with most of your creatures and is flexible enough in this list to allow for all kinds of plays from control to aggro to big stompy at a drop of the hat. notable targets are; Glen Elendra Archmage, Reclamation Sage, Kalonian Hydra, Avenger of Zendikar, freakin Eternal Witness!
NOTE: you can generate the token at instant speed for extra versatility!
Master Biomancer because who doesn't want more counters, right? besides, you have all the other great counters suppost cards here, why not one more? #winmore
that said; if, say, I wanted to remove the infect mechanic from the deck what would you replace those cards with to maintain synergy and speed?

I know it's a big change but Silas Renn, Seeker Adept would pair beautifully with Reyhan. Adding a blue partner would open many other card options like Vorel of the Hull Clade and Master Biomancer. Oh and maybe Necropolis Regent too.

If I were you, I'd cut Corpsejack Menace, Forgotten Ancient, Ghave, Guru of Spores, Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kalonian Hydra, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, and Vulturous Zombie to sweeze in as many Planeswalkers as you can.
Creatures are nice as a crutch, but too many of them ruin the consistency and flexibility that Superfriends has to offer you. Plus, you have Spike Weaver for that dank Turbofog effect.
