I used SuperSaiyn7's deck We're Gonna Pump... YOU Up! as a template for this build, with the added suggestions from Deepstriker29. Ezuri counters, but more elves. Please give suggestions and recommendations, trying to loosely fit the theme of elves; I want to make sure this deck is strong (but mainly fun!) before I buy.

Is there any room for more synergy?



Looking to add From Beyond, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to the deck, not sure what to cut.

In essence trying to remove possibility of cards being taken control of from graveyards, recursion is a big theme in my meta, hence the Scavenging Ooze

Viridian Corrupter would fit perfectly in this deck, infect with ezuri is nuts, plus its an elf that destroys an artifact! My ezuri deck isn't elf themed, but it is cheap and I've done well with it, so if you want to view it for reference: Ezuri EDH

Follow up comment, my deck works quite well, I win more often than not, typically through unblockable damage which your deck doesn't use so I won't suggest it since it would require a lot of changes, but other suggestions:Wood Elves, Animation Module, Undergrowth Champion, and From Beyond. Not all have elf synergy, but they all do good work and have things I think your deck may lack, but you have an awesome brew overall and I'll probs steal a few ideas.

Zargast yeah that undergrowth champion is sweet :) thanks for the suggestions, can't wait to get this deck into play, i must admit im yet to try it! Need to save up a bit more cash...

Just curious, What would you do in a scenario where an opponent turn 1 Sol Ring, Torpor Orb? and you dont have a Mystical Tutor or Krosan Grip in your hand? I run a lot of spellslinger decks weak to creatures packing stuff like Damnation, and Torpor Orb usually caused my friend piloting ezuri to scoop pretty frequently and eventually take it apart lol :/ maybe im just a dick for running a common meta card and control decks but its a potentially common threat

goblinguiderevealpls you make a very good point! I hadn't really thought of this. Like i said in earlier comments, haven't actually played this deck yet, I don't know the meta I'll be playing in. But in regards to your question, I'd like to think i had enough artifact hate, but I just realised all the hate is ETB effect!

I don't know what I'd do in this situation tbh, I guess just find some artifact removal on sorceries and instants? This deck is pretty screwed against Torpor Orb I guess!

Here's hoping your playgroup doesnt discover it or run it against you than! Every deck has a weakness, and in multiplayer you could always be diplomatic and ask for help removing it, it shuts down A LOT of creature decks so plotting for its removal isnt hard when it shuts down multiple peoples game plans, but it really hurts poor ezuri :( good thing Krosan Grip exists!

August 14, 2017 11:04 a.m.

Heres some suggestions in case you start running into orbs, but i see you have Counterspell Krosan Grip and Beast Within, thats already decent if in opening hand.

Anyways, these may be useful in sideboard in case of oppressive artifacts etc without hurting your mana curve

Caustic Caterpillar

Elvish Scrapper

Nature's Claim

goblinguiderevealpls Thanks for the suggestions, I might try and pick up a copy of these in case I start getting Orb'd ahaha. I might also find that I need more artifact removal anyway after a few games with my mates, so these are great options.

Thanks again!

Np, just wanted to save you from an unfortunate incident haha

Cursed Totem is another problem for the same reason

Deck looks super solid, and like a blast to play; one suggestion, Bioshift. You could last minute shift counters onto Balista or an attacking creature. It's great for combat tricks and so on.

DrkNinja It is suuuuper fun to play, no one ever expects it to burst out of the gate the way it does. One issue I've found with it is the reliance upon ezuri to be on the field, hence trying to balance it out so that Ezuri can be in the command zone yet the deck is still a proper threat.

Thanks for the suggestion, I've actually never seen that card before ahah! Definitely going to try and include that card.

DrkNinja says... #13

seemellow yea I built an ezuri (Ezuri's Simic Brigade if you wanna check it out) deck built around Elf Tribal with Joraga Warcaller enabling a shit ton of damage. But yours looks more fun.

seemellow says... #14

DrkNinja oooh you built elf tribal, that was the original goal for mine but then it just sort of evolved ahah. The problem I found with elf-tribal is that after a while, your elves no longer enter the battlefield under 2 power because of all the lord effects. But it does seem extremely strong and I like that it doesn't rely heaps on Ezuri being out.

Abundance will help with tutoring in general, also pairs perfect with Sylvan Library!

MattKepp2 that seems like a veeeery powerful card!

Kinpa6Ansatsu says... #17

Not sure if I can help with the elf tribal, but some cards that have worked in Ezuri for me are Aluren, Shrieking Drake, and Sage of Hours. Your list looks good.
