Crafting your decklist with the evolve mechanic in mind is a great take on a Simic EDH deck. However, since Ezuri is very much a build-around-me commander, there are some specific questions you need to ask yourself for each and every card:

Question #1: Does it not also benefit from, but also synergize with, +1/+1 counters?

Technically, the evolve mechanic is counterintuitive to Ezuri's +1/+1 counter-stacking ability, but cards like Experiment One, Gyre Sage, and Simic Manipulator who have counter-related abilities benefit from the extra boost. Other cards that have silly combinations with +1/+1 counters are Sage of Hours (obviously), Fathom Mage, Mycoloth, Champion of Lambholt, Forgotten Ancient, Chasm Skulker, and Crystalline Crawler.

Question #2: If it has power 2 or less, does it have a relevant ability?

Just because it can trigger Ezuri's ability doesn't necessarily mean the card is fit for EDH. If it's an evolve creature, keep it for your deck's theme, especially if it has a powerful ability. Card considerations in this category would be Cold-Eyed Selkie, Hornet Queen, Blighted Agent, Mulldrifter, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Eternal Witness, Coiling Oracle, Trygon Predator, Mystic Snake, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Solemn Simulacrum, Reclamation Sage, and Thrasios, Triton Hero.

Underpowered cards to cut:Beetleform Mage, Bond Beetle, Frilled Oculus, Mist Intruder, Nimbus Swimmer, Palace Familiar, Reverent Hunter, Sandsteppe Scavenger, Scourge of Skola Vale, Sidisi's Faithful, Verdurous Gearhulk, Vinelasher Kudzu, Dromoka's Gift, Hydroform, Lead by Example, Unnatural Aggression, Slip Through Space, Bonds of Mortality, Retreat to Coralhelm, Cranial Archive, and Verdant Haven.

Beetleform and Oculus's abilities aren't relevant enough to keep, Reverent Hunter and Kudzu both suffer from the problem of vanilla big creatures that don't really synergize with Ezuri, Mist Intruder isn't good in traditionally multiplayer EDH, Swimmer and Scavenger are too expensive, Beetle is cute but doesn't do enough, Palace Familiar might be worth keeping if you absolutely need card draw, but it's pretty weak otherwise, and Sidisi's Faithful is too slow and bad in multiplayer. Skola Vale uses +1/+1 counters, but it's not terribly good. I ran Gearhulk in my decklist for a short period of time, but if you aren't running proliferation or ways to make the spreading out of the counters relevant, it's not worth it. Dromoka's Gift is too expensive for its lack of control, Lead by Example is too weak, Hydroform makes a land vulnerable to removal for a turn, Unnatural Aggression is too expensive, Slip and Bonds are alright but there are more powerful options (Aqueous Form and Arcane Lighthouse), Retreat doesn't help your gameplan, Cranial Archive should only be played if there is a mill or graveyard deck in your meta, and Verdant Haven is outclassed by better cards (Utopia Sprawl/Fertile Ground).

Powerful cards to add:Cold-Eyed Selkie, Mycoloth, Champion of Lambholt, Gyre Sage, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Hornet Queen, Blighted Agent, Mosswort Bridge, Forgotten Ancient, Mulldrifter, Eternal Witness, Trygon Predator, Prime Speaker Zegana, Mystic Snake, Swiftfoot Boots, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Simic Signet, Krosan Grip, Solemn Simulacrum, Chasm Skulker, Kodama's Reach, and Reclamation Sage.

CaliburnAO on Rashmi deck

Nice solid list. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is always solid, giving flash to your creatures as well as disrupting opponents. Eternal Witness, Zendikar Resurgent, Greenwarden of Murasa, Terastodon and Avenger of Zendikar are all good cards that fit in any green deck, and cards that manipulate the top of the deck, like Ponder, Brainstorm, Future Sight and Sylvan Library are very helpful with Rashmi. I've always found Woodland Bellower to be amazing as well, as it can pull Reclamation Sage or Trygon Predator or Eternal Witness. Of course, these are just suggestions of cards I've had success with. +1 for the sweet deck, hope you have fun with it!

CharonSquared on Help with Derevi

2 months ago

My Derevi deck focuses on abusing her ability with creatures that have tap abilities. A few options are Kazandu Tuskcaller, Beguiler of Wills, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Captain Sisay. Then you'll also want some useful creatures with evasion to help trigger Derevi, like Trygon Predator and Thada Adel, Acquisitor. And since you'll hopefully be connecting with a couple small creatures each turn, Edric, Spymaster of Trest and Bident of Thassa help keep your hand full.

Saucealicious on Harness the Maelstrom~ Yidris EDH

Gearlyons I included Ingot Chewer mostly because it's one of the few cards with Evoke that has a decent enough effect and a cheap Evoke cost. Casting it for still Cascades for the full cost so cards like that really helps in building some extra advantage.

Would you consider the "guaranteed" removal of World Breaker or Woodfall Primus more valuable than the cheap cost and potential re-usability of Trygon Predator?

Bear in mind that I mainly play multiplayer matches with 3 or more people. Terastodon, more often than not, kills things from different players. Even if it kills 3 things from the same players, isn't the sheer value of doing that worth more than giving them the 3/3s? Especially when Balefire Dragon can just fry them or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder can get evasion/hit another player.

Prognostic Sphinx is not at all about the discard, rather the reusable top-deck manipulation on a good costed card with a built-in panic button. I'm not that into Puppeteer Clique 'cause I don't like being dependent on someone else having something good.

So far I feel like the cheaper cost of Prismatic Omen is worth more than the ramp from Chromatic Lantern. But I'm up for more thoughts on that matter.

Please, suggest more utility lands! Once I feel that the mana fix is stable enough I plan on adding a few more and Kessig Wolf Run would certainly have its uses. I decided against Bear Umbra only because it's an Aura.

Thanks for the comment!

Gearlyons on Harness the Maelstrom~ Yidris EDH

i think Ingot Chewer and Trygon Predator could be World Breaker or Woodfall Primus. i personally don't like Terastodon, i would always get it in a bad situation where i'm giving my opponent blockers, yes your general has trample but you just gave them an army that can kill yidris if he doesn't have a p/t buff.

the Prognostic Sphinx seems a little random unless you have recursion, maybe you could take it out for something that's the same mana cost that's a bit spicier Puppeteer Clique? Consuming Aberration gives you synergy.

Prismatic Omen can be replaced for Chromatic Lantern only because the artifact actually gives you mana in addition to giving your lands the ability.

maybe colorless lands that provide a utility ability, like Kessig Wolf Run or hell, Kher Keep? i understand that you wanna leave mana open after you swing to abuse your cascade but with Nature's Will and Sword of Feast and Famine (maybe add a Bear Umbra) you can abuse your lands and get double value out of them.
