PurePazaak on Current Ezuri Build

15 hours ago

So I have an Ezuri, Claw of Progress build, myself. You should check it out! I'm gonna give you some ideas, as I may have a few more experience counters than you xD

The suggestions I make are from my list, but I won't mention any cards outside of your budget. Let's get started!

This is alphabetical, not in order of relevance:

  • Avenger of Zendikar is a bomb! He usually produces 7 tokens (sometimes more, rarely less). That's 7 Ezuri triggers! A great way to spend some mana.
  • Birthing Pod is good; in my opinion, it is secondary to Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (more on him later)
  • Breeding Pool is in your sideboard, but is a little out of your budget. If you're willing to buy it, there is absolutely no reason to leave it out of your deck
  • Cyclonic Rift is an auto-include, as you are playing a blue EDH deck
  • As brian.olson542 mentioned, Fathom Mage is amazing with Ezuri. It's the best card draw you'll get
  • Green Sun's Zenith is amazing if you have enough green creatures to make it relevant. Tutoring is important in Commander, especially with a toolbox build (Ezuri can easily be a very effective toolbox). If you have too many blue/artifact creatures, I would go for other tutors
  • Hinterland Harbor is from my favorite cycle of lands. In a 2-color deck, it will usually enter the battlefield _UN_tapped, without having to Shock yourself. Wonderful!
  • You would be amazed at just how useful Kiora's Follower is. Got a tapped Simic Growth Chamber, Sol Ring, or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood? No problem :) Of course, it can also untap any creatures you have, as well as tapping an opponent's artifacts/creatures. So much utility in one little creature!
  • I am familiar with Lifecrafter's Bestiary (or the Pokedex, as I call it). However, I have not tried it in my Ezuri Claw build. I'd be interested in seeing how it plays out!
  • Murkfiend Liege is definitely not as good as Seedborn Muse, but it is also 90% cheaper, so that's okay
  • Mycoloth is one of the best ways to get more counters! You needn't devour anything as it enters, though you certainly may. Just dump XP into it, and you get some tokens, which gives you more XP, which gives you more tokens, which gives...
  • Panharmonicon - yesyesYES!!! This card is bonkers! Creatures that create tokens when they enter the battlefield (i.e.: Avenger of Zendikar) will create twice that amount! But wait - There's more! Those tokens will trigger Ezuri TWICE! For those of you following along at home, that's FOUR TIMES the Ezuri triggers for those tokens. You can't afford to pass that up!
  • Rashmi, Eternities Crafter really doesn't play with Ezuri, but it is an A+ Simic card.
  • PUT IN Sage of Hours!!! He is an infinite combo, and a win condition. If you have 4 XP, play Sage, get another XP, enter combat, place 5 counters on Sage and remove them instantly, take an extra turn. Then do the same thing next turn. Then the next. Then the next. You see where i'm going here? It's infinite turns, my friend. There's no cooler way to win (well... except for Now I Know My ABC's... but that's a different deck)
  • I don't usually like taplands, but I make an excuse for Temple of Mystery. The artwork alone keeps it in, and the scrying is noice
  • Yavimaya Coast is another solid and inexpensive option for mana

This is kinda alphabetical... but not really. _()_/

Whew! Well I gave you a lot to think about, there. feel free to ask questions about anything I've suggested; I'd be happy to give you examples from games I've played, etc. Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

Blood Baron of Vizkopa, or "Hey fuck you I have protection from the entire Modern format and will absolutely shit all over anything that tries to race me."

Also, Archangel of Thune. Combined with Spike Feeder, you have access to an infinite combo.

Personally I would play Spike Feeder, then add Archangel of Thune. These 2 cards are already great on their own, but they combo with each other.

Doubling Season is one of the money cards you should get eventually, especially if you want to build your deck around planeswalkers.

City of Brass and Mana Confluence are other lands I would get. Also, the basic tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, etc. And ramp spells are certainly good options.

BreadManDan on Changes to my Atraxa deck...

I'd like to add the Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune combo to my Atraxa deck... My deck:

Atraxa's No Longer Super Friends

Commander / EDH* BreadManDan


Look for advice on what cards to perhaps remove to make way for this?? Any other suggestions, advice, criticism always appreciated.

Adding the Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune combo...any suggestions on what to take out???

chaskins15 on Life Gain Power Gain

Hey! I saw you were new to magic. You posted the deck in the modern format which it technically is, but people there tend to only care about cards for their reputation rather than how you want to play them. I really like the deck. I have a life gain deck of my own. Godly Spike That deck isn't budget but you can get some ideas there. Some cards I'd recommend would be Spike Feeder if you put sunbond on your spike feeder you gain infinite life and have an infinte creature!!! Also if you have that on the field your ajani's pridemate becomes a 2 mana infinite creature which is INSANE value. Ajani's Mantra is the enchantment version of your Nyx-fleece ram. Of course if you add spike feeder you'll have to run green which is not bad, because you can then run elvish mystic which can allow your deck to get a Turn 3 kill! All of this turns your creatures into Serra avatars by themselves and they are cheaper so you can cut them. Overall this would boost your power level and make your deck kill super fast. Modern is a tough format, but you will be king of the kitchen table for sure. If you can check out my deck and give me some tips I'd appreciate it also. One last thing if you can afford $20, Archangel of Thune makes all of your creatures infinite and gives you infinite life and all you have to do is play spike feeder when angel is on the field it's an instant win! Good luck I really enjoy the direction the deck is going!!!

entheogeneral on Help with Mono-Blue Combos

3 weeks ago

Those all sound like good combos. I will most certainly get the Deadeye Navigator+Peregrine Drake combo, I love infinite mana. The Grand Architect+Pili-Pala might also fit in here. As for infinite combos in green and white, if I were you, I would use Melira, Sylvok Outcast+Woodfall Primus and an infinite sac outlet or her with Kitchen Finks or Kitchen Finks with Archangel of Thune (and sac outlet)or Archangel of Thune with Spike Feeder; you get the idea. But thanks for the help, guys.

I see! I didn't notice the last ability on Spike Feeder, and that's a pretty big facet of the deck. I still think some creature protection would behoove you, though. Perhaps Sheltering Word?
