Vorel of the Hull Clade Discussion

PurePazaak on Current Ezuri Build

6 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!

Geralf_Cecani on Momir Vig, new deck

5 days ago

The problem with this deck (and its a big one) is that there's no synergy with the commander. Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, other than perhaps his high CMC (converted mana cost), is an incredible commander in that you can tutor (i.e. search your library: think cards like: Diabolic Tutor, Mystical Tutor and etc.) for an infinite win con that allows you to win instantly. An example that works well in budget is Ezuri, Claw of Progress and your Sage of Hours. Get both of them down and some experience counters and enjoy lots of extra turns. Add a Vorel of the Hull Clade and fistful of 1 to 2 mana blue-green creatures to speed things up: when you have 5 experience, you have an infinite win con, where you have literally infinite turns.

There are dozens of such combos, and a bit of research will allow you to combo off at around turn 6 or so.

Another piece of information pertaining to any deck in commander: Put in at least 8 mana ramp spells. These spells include land accelerations, such as Rampant Growth; mana rocks, such as Sky Diamond; and mana dorks, such as Axebane Guardian. These types of spells allow you to play your more expensive spells sooner, and with a commander with a CMC of 5, you'll need around 10.

Thats my humble opinion tho. Don't quote me

Geralf_Cecani on Changes to my Atraxa deck...

1 week ago

I usually work on a tight budget, so all your cards look fucking amazing to me, but I noticed that you have a ton of artifact/enchantment removal. You probably don't need as much as you do, so maybe lose something like Krosan Grip?

Something else you should look at is the Vorel of the Hull Clade and Liquimetal Coating combo. It isn't infinite, but it's damn good (and cheap lol). Also goes well with all your artifact removal. Another couple of things that you could add are Eternity Vessel, Magistrate's Scepter and Darksteel Reactor. The reactor is a straight out win condition and the Scepter has the potential to go infinite. And getting lots of life is also fun. Sage of Hours can also get infinite turns.

I probably made your predicament of trying to find out what to remove worse lol. Sorry bout that.

For budget cards I would consider Winding Constrictor, Vorel of the Hull Clade, and other Simic good stuff cards.

Geralf_Cecani on Need opinions for next edh ...

Captain Sisay is powerful, but sort of ends up only as good as how much money you pump in.

Vorel of the Hull Clade is bloody amazing. Just Darksteel Reactor, Eternity Vessel and Magistrate's Scepter. Nuff said.

A favourite of mine is Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Not as good as lot of other commanders, but certainly very fun to play with and against (eldrazi titans! For free! Wheeeee!)

If you have a spare $15 (beware shameless self plug) take a look at

Only works once tho

xrex479 on We're Gonna Pump... YOU Up!

Sage of Hours works well in the deck. You'll get infinite turns once you get 5 experience counters. Vorel of the Hull Clade helps double counters. Prime Speaker Zegana helps draw cards. Kalonian Hydra pumps your dudes. Getting Mycoloth out late game is amazing.

I love the name of your deck, I have a similarly named deck It's time to pump.........you up!

Osbert on Countin' Counters with the Hydra Crew

3 weeks ago

Where is your Vorel of the Hull Clade? He was the definitive hydra tribal commander for a long time, and for good reason. Also don't undervalue proliferate cards as they do serious work with experience counters and +1/+1 counters, Inexorable Tide and Tezzeret's Gambit are really strong.
