Ezuri's Progressive Elves

Commander / EDH* Counters Elves Tribal



My wife is building a tribal merfolk deck using Prime Speaker Zegana and so for Christmas I got her the new C15 Ezuri deck so that we could farm it for useful Simic cards, her commander, and a few of the creatures she was already wanting to include.

In the mean time, I have also recently taken a few of the elementals and land fetching cards from our C14 Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury deck for use in my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck.

This deck is an amalgamation of these two decks which have now been farmed for some things and left with a bunch of elves. I was then looking through my stock Derevii, Empyrial Tactician deck and found a couple of cards which could be useful. However I don't know what to replace, so they are on the side board and I would welcome suggestions for what cards this deck could do without.


Updates Add

In an effort to ease my worries of not having enough land, I replaced Ojutai's Summons with a Forest. I felt the summons was easily over shadowed by other token generators in the deck so it could go. I now have a growing maybeboard of cards which I would like to include if possible, but I need candidates for replacement. I have a few candidates in mind, but I would appreciate any advice on the matter. I should also try to prioritize the maybeboard so advice in that department is welcome too.

Candidates for Replacement:

Priorities to Add:

  • Garruk Wildspeaker - I recently came upon a situation where I needed a trample enabler and with a 20 card draw, didn't get one I could use. I feel Garruk's ramp and potentially reusable Overrun would be very handy for this deck.

  • Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip - She is an elf and helps with ramp, card draw, and can provide some big creatures. I also conveniently have my second one sitting unused in the binder currently.

  • Simic Manipulator - I recently played two games each of which saw Predator, Flagship + Willbreaker do some cool things (such as take Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Narset, Enlightened Master) I feel like this card could be very powerful considering all the counters Ezuri starts throwing around. I think it's handy to have something available as a chance to take control of other experience counter generals.

  • Presence of Gond, Leafdrake Roost, Ooze Flux - I would like at least one of these as a repeatable token (and experience counter) generator.

  • Collected Company - I'm not actually sure how well to expect this to work, but there are currently 26 eligible creatures. Probabilities time! Easiest scenario to calculate is pulling 2 eligible creatures from the 92 card library, assuming that all 26 are still in the library: Pr = C(26, 2)*C(66, 4)/C(92, 6) = 32.8%. I suppose that's not too bad, and maybe about as good as it gets in an EDH deck. I welcome opinions on the matter.
