Solemn Simulacrum Discussion
3 hours ago
Kaalia is an amazing commander, but because she is so powerful, she is also the primary target of every other player once she hits the battlefield. Therefore, my advice to you starts with: add some more protection in here for Kaalia :) My recommendations would be: Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn and/or Whispersilk Cloak. If you want to make things a bit more expensive, try Champion's Helm. A relatively cheap creature that can also provide some extra protection for her: Eight-and-a-Half-Tails.
Kaalia needs to appear on the battlefield asap, in order for your deck to shine. So, the second thing I would recommend is to try and increase the speed of this deck by either adding some mana rocks like Fellwar Stone, Worn Powerstone or Thran Dynamo OR add some land fetching cards like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Oreskos Explorer or if you're feeling like a big-spender: Weathered Wayfarer or Land Tax.
Once Kaalia is on the battlefield, you want her to attack as often as possible to trigger her ability multiple times per turn. So, you need some cards that will allow her to attack more than once per turn, if possible. You already have Aurelia for this. Some other options are: Seize the Day, Relentless Assault and World at War. In case you have money to spend, Aggravated Assault is also wonderful.
These are my main points of advice. I would also recommend you add some stuff that allows you to draw some extra cards each turn (like Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections) and stuff that protects Kaalia when she attacks (Dolmen Gate and Reconnaissance come to mind).

Hey there! This looks like a pretty sweet Ezuri build! While I can't be certain, I would guess that you generally find yourself with just a few cards in hand, and that you usually play all of your creatures and then have a hard time recovering from a board wipe, right?
While that guess could be way off, it looks like a lot of your deck is very strong when you're ahead, but rather weak when you're behind. First of all, you appear to be a little low on ways to interact with your opponents. With Ezuri, you want a lot of creature-based interaction. Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, and the like can be very strong. AEther Adept, Mist Raven, Man-o'-War, Venser, Shaper Savant, and Voidmage Husher are all options to deal with your opponents' creatures, albeit temporarily.
However, not everything can be creature-based. I see that you already run Krosan Grip, which is absolutely a strong card, but I would also add in some of my favorite removal spells: Nature's Claim, Natural State, Pongify, and Reality Shift are all great ways to deal with annoying things on the cheap. Beast Within is also great.
You also want some number of board wipes. With Ezuri, bounce-based board wipes are great, as they allow you to re-trigger Ezuri's ability. Evacuation, Devastation Tide, and Curse of the Swine are all great for this.
In addition, you have ways to draw cards, but they either draw you a ton of cards (such as Fathom Mage), or don't draw you any cards. I would recommend adding in a couple of cards that just draw you cards, no matter what else you have on you board. Fact or Fiction is a great card for this, as is Opportunity.
Now, Ezuri presents a little bit of a problem with this, because Ezuri specifically cares about creatures, and your deck doesn't have a lot of ways to function if you can't play a lot of creatures. I would recommend staying away from cutting creatures as much as possible (other than the duplicate Bane of Progress), and instead start by cutting cards like Simic Charm, Journey of Discovery, Verdant Confluence, probably a land or two (I find 37 is a comfortable number for a Blue/Green deck), etc.
Finally, some general suggestions. Some of these are already on your maybeboard, but these are ones that I would highly recommend adding:
- Sakura-Tribe Elder is an amazing ramp card that also triggers Ezuri
- Coiling Oracle replaces itself or ramps you, and likewise triggers Ezuri
- Same with Solemn Simulacrum
- Mulldrifter is just amazing
- Hornet Queen triggers Ezuri five times, and also makes you annoying to attack
- Master Biomancer gives counters to everybody
- I don't think I need to explain Hardened Scales
- Finally, Sage of Hours gets you infinite turns with Ezuri out (and five experience counters), so if you want a combo finish, it doesn't get any easier than this.
In any case, I really hope this helps. If you want my help again in the future (or have any questions about what I said above), feel free to leave another comment on my profile. Enjoy!

Amyas Ah yes Solemn Simulacrum is an amazing card, and any deck is better for including it. The reason it is not present in this deck, simply comes down to theme. This deck is nothing but Elves. This is why I have not included cards like Wirewood Symbiote despite it's utility and versatility. I appreciate the suggestion though, thank you.

I recommend replacing the deck thining of land fetch lands with card like Solemn Simulacrum or draw.

With the amount of basics you have I would say to either take out Farhaven Elf or Solemn Simulacrum (I say either because of the differing mana costs) I like the pick with the Ulvenwald Hydra with all the non basics. I like the doomsday thing you're trying to pull off with Laboratory Maniac, I would chuck it in my deck as well, but getting the combo reliably isn't consistent and if you draw a lab maniac during a regular game I guarantee you that he will sit in your hand forever and its the first thing you discard since it doesn't actively do something, I get that every piece serves a purpose but lab maniac doesn't serve much of a purpose except take up a valuable card slot to get to a game plan that won't happen often (good try though). My recommendation to you is that you get a Minion Reflector instead since it doubles ETB triggers with a hasty body for mana and it combos just as well as the infinite draw combo you wanted to fire off.
Add Jace's Mindseeker it synergizes well with your diluvian primordial. Instead of Goldnight Redeemer use Cloudblazer, its the card draw that sells this one and at that rate add Mulldrifter over blue sun's.
By themselves Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar, can sure make tokens and operate as efficient threats by themselves but they need a bit more to be more relevant, Hornet Queen is in a worse position but in the same boat.Cathars' Crusade, Call for Unity and Meadowboon can shore up the fact that your value creatures and tokens are typically small while staying with your main game plan (while staying cheaper than Craterhoof Behemoth), even if that's fetching for a basic. Swap the angel of invention for the crusade. Instead of icefall reagent use Frost Titan if you want more value locking things down. You have in your deck, you want Leyline of Anticipation since if its in your opening hand its free over the orrery if you didn't have then run the orrery.
I'm under the assumption that you want to be a control variant, which is fine but you need to have more control aspects like counterspells, add Counterspell Disallow, Voidslime and Glen Elendra Archmage she also combos well the cathar's crusade. I want you to look at Ghostly Flicker and tell me how good it is after a board wipe, cards like that are not good cards, you have the right idea with adding other blinkers like restoration angel, and Eldrazi displacer, they are so much better in comparison since they are creatures and can do something versus sitting in your hand and doing nothing after a wipe. Vorinclex seems cool, but I find that stalling out my opponents does better when its my main game plan (he also doesn't have an ETB effect either), I don't see much use out of him otherwise.
A bunch of your cards are good cards but the deck needs more focus. Edric rewards aggressive decks, this deck has aspects but can't always cash in on that. This deck wants to control the board but has a big volume of unnecessary blink (cough* ghostly flicker cards exclusively) and creatures that don't control the board, unlike stonehorn dignitary and mystic snake. You can get a lot more reliable and repeatable card draw out of creatures versus instants and sorceries because you run a blink deck, so abuse that. I don't understand what you seek to copy with cards like progenitor mimic, if you want cool creatures go with a control classic like Gilded Drake.
Choose a style and go with it, if you take a look at my Roon deck you will see a lot of cards that don't seem to synergize, but they have a common and fun theme that's extremely powerful and oppressive since they have an underlying theme. I control the board then I go aggro for the win. Treat your Roon deck like an exclusively ETB/LTB midrange deck at first. There are a lot of cuts I would make if I were in your shoes, but i'm not so its really in your ball court to start capitalizing on Roon's potential. There are also a lot more things to say, but I'll let this comment sink in for now. Just ask if you need more help/suggestions, or check out my list for reference.

Steffen8910: Thanks for commenting! Arcbound Overseer is really just a huge body that Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can reanimate. I didn't add it for any synergy with the deck, but just solely for it's 6/6 P/T. The fact that it grows is just a bonus! I guess I could use something like Solemn Simulacrum if it's on the field, but that would just be a chance thing.
RayRamos02 I might consider that, but the problem is it is mostly useless without the combo pieces, and people will remove it once they see that Karmic Guide is in the graveyard. 4 combo pieces for a combo is too much in my opinion!

And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
