This is an elf tribal take on Ezuri, Claw of Progress.

This deck is built much like a traditional mono-green elf deck, but with a splash of blue to take advantage of Simic's affinity for counters.

Deck Mechanics

  • I have kept the number of elves that pump each other up on the lower side, as they tend to prevent you from gaining experience counters. Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen is notably absent, but others with additional abilities, such as Elvish Archdruid and Imperious Perfect are right where they should be.

  • Because I am running Primal Surge, I have kept instants and sorceries to a minimum, opting for permanent solutions to ramp, counterspells, etc... Nevertheless, I have included Boseiju, Who Shelters All to protect the instants and sorceries I am running, as most of them, such as Genesis Wave, and Tangle are significant enough to be potential game changers.

  • The deck has a number of strong draw engines that work with the deck's synergies to keep it from running out of steam, such as Fathom Mage , Greater Good, Sages of the Anima and Consecrated Sphinx.
