Abzkaban on Ezuri budget

1 week ago

Looks good! You've got a lot of the Ezuri staples that don't break the bank. Looks like it would be pretty effective. I designed my Ezuri deck around elves. I'll leave a link to it here so you can take a look at it. You might find some ideas there.

A lot of variation in decks containing blue come from your meta which determine what control cards you need. For the most part what you've included looks fairly well-rounded. I do have a few suggestions with a budget in mind.

I had Urban Evolution on my list as well before I deemed it too slow. By the time you have mana to cast it, you shouldn't need the ramp it provides. There are also more efficient means of card draw. I can't begin to describe the card advantage you get from Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest. Your mana curve looks low enough that I think you could be taking advantage of them. And even if you needed more mana ramp (which I don't think you need too much more), Gyre Sage and Viridian Joiner would give you a kick in addition to your Marwyn, the Nurturer. If you want more draw effects from playing a single card, might I suggest Prime Speaker Zegana, Shamanic Revelation, or Soul's Majesty. Any one of them will net you more cards than you need.

The other thing I can't stress enough if Panharmonicon if it's not out of your budget. The value from having this out with Ezuri is crazy especially when you play cards like Cultivator of Blades and Experimental Aviator. You basically get two experience counters for every creature under 2 power that you put into play.

Also as an afterthought, if you wanted to get your Sage of Hours out faster, you could add in Momir Vig, Simic Visionary who is really just good for getting any creature you might need. He's excellent for drawing right into your infinite win con, though.

Nice deck! Ezuri is so much fun to play!

Matt_MTG,

Thanks for the comment! I have noticed that this deck is a occasionally slow, but extremely powerful...sometimes unstoppable. Here is what is consistent: turn 5 Zacama if you have the correct pieces, Zacama will threaten other players and they will either lose the game or answer Zacama immediately. Occasionally I have ended up in top deck mode, which can be really annoying. I never considered Soul's Majesty, or Life's Legacy mainly because I never knew they existed. :p I have Rishkar's Expertise and Momentous Fall in place of those two cards. I think these cards are marginally better because you can play a card for free or respond to a board wipe with immediate value. If I was going to add them I would likely replace Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. I am already playing Greater Good, which can be infinite card draw and infinite mana. I am also playing Elemental Bond, which seems to work well.

I'm excited that you are making this deck! It's extremely powerful and one of my favorite ways to play Magic.

That is annoying, my message got cut off somehow. My apologies for the spam. I intended to ask you how consistent your deck is, since you have been playing it for a while now. Did you consider running cards like Soul's Majesty ,Life's Legacy or Greater Good to translate Zacama's power into a bunch of cards?

Hey, I am starting a Zacama deck myself and you have some cool ideas to borrow

Soul's Majesty and Sylvan Library for awesome card draw, along with Garruk. Otherwise Id say everything looks pretty tight, I wouldn't change much.

If you want an alternate way to turn Arixmethes into a one shot kill, Grafted Exoskeleton turns any of your fatties into Blightsteel Colossus. Another method would be Umbral Mantle + 5 mana.

With all those Blue Mana Symbols a few devotion cards wouldn't be amiss. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could work well with your land untapping cards and Master of Waves should generate a ton of tokens and give you another way to win with Dragon Throne of Tarkir

You could also use a few cards that take advantage of your commander's massive body. She's a little spendy, but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is a shot in the army to your mana in both colors. Rishkar's Expertise, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Soul's Majesty, and Prime Speaker Zegana can all draw a whole fistful of cards.

SynergyBuild on Why Every Commander is Competitive

TheBloopKing - I went over Beatdown in the win-cons!

starsky - Yo thanks man! I think every deck with the right combination of colors, ramp, card draw, interaction, and win-conditions can win against any other deck, or at least compete!

TheBloopKing - Plenty of the cards you mentioned are not competitive. The idea behind card draw isn't I want cards in my hand, it is I want answers to the board, or a way to win (obviously it depends on the situation and deck's strategy, but that is besides the point). If I go over many of the mentioned card Mentor of the Meek/Alms Collector work in many a stax builds, but Wall of Omens, Aura Blast, and PureSteel Paladin are much too weak to see play, white would rather a Spirit of the Labyrinth than them.

Harmonize is too slow, Explore isn't powerful enough outside of Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Soul's Majesty leads to blowouts where you have a suited up 16/16 commander or whatever, and it gets Swords to Plowsharesed and you lose the creature and the 5 mana and card on Soul's Majesty, Primordial Sage/Soul of the Harvest effects are good in Animar, Soul of Elements, but that's about it.

Red should generally only use tutors like Gamble, Imperial Recruiter, and wheels like Wheel of Fortune or Reforge the Soul. Bad cantrips like Expedite aren't powerful outside of a Zada, Hedron Grinder deck or something, most of those draw/discard effects are sub-par anyway. Scroll Rack, Sensei's Divining Top and other good colorless options are all they need.

Black has Ad Nauseam and every tutor they need to find it. Necropotence, Night's Whisper, and call it a day. Phyrexian Arena is pretty bad in comparison to Dark Confidant, and Underworld Connections is going to get you Strip Mined, and is just generally worse than the arena. Damnable Pact just isn't good, if you have enough mana to make it better than Ad Nauseam, run Torment of Hailfire and win the game.

Your multicolored options are pretty bad, if you are in abzan use black draw, blue draw is insane as is and so never needs Edric, Spymaster of Trest, as it gives opponents card draw, which is almost the worst thing to do. Spiteful Visions and Fevered Visions are for Nekusar, the Mindrazer and no one else, it tosses out cards like Oprah, and will stop you from winning any game you are trying to win.

Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye are generally too slow, even for colorless decks, and Howling Mine and Horn of Greed fall into the Oprah level of bad cards. They will kill you faster than anything else, unless you are Tatyova, Benthic Druid in which case I could argue for Howling Mine.


Outside of Blue or Black, use tutors in your color, Sensei's Divining Top, and Scroll Rack, tutors are the best way not to need card draw, but trying to run sub-par replacements for card draw never is the answer, it just makes your deck slow and clunky. Trust me, I have tried and failed.
