Voke1012 bracers is already in the deck. Any suggestions for cuts for Tidewater Minion ?

well if you put in Tidewater Minion + Illusionist's Bracers and loads of tap abilities then you can create a monster.

So currently there is a lot of interest in pod-cEDH. I spent a few weekends brewing & quickly grew tired of trying to calculate which 1-drop creature I could use to polish off a 5+ card flash-hulk chain. I had a slew of ideas and many attempts to find the right line & then I quit.

I like complex lines & unique styles of play that aren't 'punch with tymna&dorks, Draw a win' (even though it's actually just stupidly strong). Vannifar is unlike Gitrog - where usually every single card is worthwhile and has a place in the loop. In Vannifar currently a fifth of the deck is just dead cards. That's 1/5 cards sucking to draw, with only Brainstorm & Whirlpool Drake (by the way - this is a SPICY include - nice one) to fix that.

Most hulk piles use roughly the following cards: flash>hulk>body double & viscera seer>karmic guide>Reveillark This is a very basic, fairly efficient hulk-pile. It uses six dead cards, of which are not massively interchangable, and will usually suck in hand except for in fringe cases.
Most cEDH decks require a 5 card MAX in order to win. Whereas (and this is no slight on your part) vannifar lists use far beyond that efficient number of slots in order to play like it's a real pod deck.

It's down to the Vannifar community (and that includes you now) to hunt for a way to make pod decent in cEDH, as I believe that there's a great combo out there in simic that can be achieved.

Oh, I know very well how the pod line works. I've spent countless hours and tore out a lot of hair trying to figure out the most efficient way of assembling a chain to Hulk myself and it just hasn't worked in my favor at all because there isn't a great ETB untapper at 5 CMC. Tidewater Minion is fine. Chakram Retriever and Disciple of the Ring feel a little less conditional to me since they don't require a haste enabler, but they still aren't great.

yes DiverDown I know that Body Double also copies the mana cost of the creature you hit with it in the graveyard, but that is why we have Tidewater Minion . this is our untapper to get us in the next line of the chain, as long as we have Thousand-Year Elixir or Lightning Greaves . And I apologize for the lack of information about the combo and of the deck, I am going to be editing the description so it fits with all of the other competitive decks and had tabs for descriptions of certain areas of the deck. I spent lots of time brewing this and I felt like combining Protean Hulk and the Deadeye Navigator Combos were the best way to assure that you can win. If you draw into the pieces of one combo, just do the other. Thanks for the feedback though, I had no idea how mucht his deck will be appreciated, but it can consistently win turn 4, and if the cards allow, turn 3
