Nomads en-Kor Discussion

Hi all, my beloved Atraxa deck has been pushed to the limit with cEDH players, and I finally switched commanders to T&T. I am currently very happy with the new list and its performance. However, I was curious if I should be attempting to flash/hulk, and if you think so, how can I go about producing a win? I've seen piles in WUBRG decks, but I lack access to red. I also am not a fan of Nomads en-Kor. deck:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/atraxa-the-swifty/

sega_homies after hulk dies you search up Nomads en-Kor, Cephalid Illusionist and Thassa's Oracle they all enter at the same time. In response to Oracle's etb trigger you mill yourself out by having Nomad target Cephalid repeatedly. After you have no library you let oracle resolve.

pao2 Great work on the deck! I love it, I used to play the old Honorbru version, but I soon felt that the stax heavy build was too slow and not as entertaining to play unlike this list.
In terms of ways with dealing with Flash Hulk, I do not see other options than discard and Plague Engineer. How do you think that Plague Engineer fits into the deck? Sadly, it does not deal with the Spellseeker line, howeover it provides utility similar to Minister of Pain.
The other options would be Duress , Thoughtseize or Praetor's Grasp. I am not sure that these options are as good as Plague Engineer, given that it strays away from the creature fokus of the deck. But I think I will test them out myself. How you considered som of these cards in the list given the current meta?
On a side note, spore frog can also be useful against Najeela.

I know that the preferred option is Cephalid Illusionist + Nomads en-Kor over Blood Pet. I'm guessing the primary reason is for the inclusion of Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, since the two creatures work well with him outside of the hulk combo. I also understand that the benefit they provide is that once Flash resolves, you don't have to cast any more spells (meaning that you can rock Boseiju, Who Shelters All if you really want to, which this list does).
On the topic of Blood Pet though, the comments say it is a dip in card quality outside of combo. Is this purely due to Cephalid Illusionist's ability to prevent damage? Outside of this ability, I would have thought that Blood Pet actiing as a "for future use" mini Dark Ritual was actually the better of the abilities.
On top of this, generally the deployment lines for hulk are either Nomads en-Kor, Cephalid Illusionist and Thassa's Oracle (+ any 1 drop creature); or Blood Pet, Spellseeker (getting Consultation) and Thassa's Oracle. This would imply that the two creature pairs for the combo are either pet/seeker or illusionist/nomads, since you only need one of the two to make the combo work. Of the two of those pairings, the otuside of combo value pairing to me would heavily lean towards seeker/pet as you have a mana source and a tutor on a stick. On top of that, against cards like Linvala, Keeper of Silence or Cursed Totem, you just need to add to make the combo work. And while I know the pet/seeker line gets shut down by Rule of Law type effects, I would think that a stax deck would either run both (Blood Pod) or would rahter shut down creature abilities (GAAIV) rather than limit their spell count.
So is the main tipping point here ultimately just the ability to pair with Boseiju?
On a semi related note, how does this change with addition of red to the deck, since Wild Cantor can take the place of Blood Pet (and is a much stronger card). I recently put together a (completely untested) list for Najeela, the Blade-Blossom which sports the cantor/seeker hulk line: Najeela Fish Hulk and is running sans Jace. In this case, is the cantor/seeker better than the iilusionist/nomads line here or am I still better off swapping?

I think running white would be beneficial. You get access to things like Dovin's Veto and Swords to Plowshares, and you can use Tymna the Weaver to draw cards. I have a feeling Tasigur, the Golden Fang is likely too slow for cEDH. At least, that's my experience.

What hulk pile are you looking to win with? Fish hulk is the new toy for hulk decks and the only piece to that appears to be oracle.

Cards I have been testing as possible options for this deck:
Cephalid Coliseum - This one works well against the mirror-match, killing in response to the oracle trigger, but also just has decent value targetting yourself. This isn't the worst even if it is just a bad island too, and this deck can fill it's yard fast too. Great in grindier matches.
Tale's End - Stifle effect, that can hit commanders, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Oko, Thief of Crowns, and other walkers, then it can hit Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Tymna the Weaver, and Edric, Spymaster of Trest in the Najeela deck. Linvala, Keeper of Silence is seeing play as a one-sided counter to this deck in some midrange builds, and it too can be countered. So while it isn't a great counterspell, stifle effects are in high demand, and this does some outside work.
Abeyance - This Orim's Chant effect is often way more powerful than it seems. It is no silence when you are trying to go off, 2 CMC and it doesn't stop any artifacts, enchantments, or walkers, but the card can shut down an on-stack flash, by making Nomads en-Kor unable to activate, and also stopping the consult line but shutting down further consultation casts. Few cards can shut down both halves of this line, while also cantripping, and being able to be used to protect yourself from interaction in a pinch or grab a top-of-deck-tutored card. I have found mild success for this card, but haven't seen it in enough games to be completely sure.
