Of course, it's been cool seeing the partner halves come together!

That totally makes sense. Hmm, I was actually seethinking about Thoughtcast as a sub for Nevinyrral's Disk, just because it's a one-time draw spell, and I don't know how strong affinity makes it. What do you think?

Looks great! Have you considered Kusari-Gama to help Silas get through, or Burnished Hart/Nevinyrral's Disk as utility reanimation targets?

This looks like a lot of fun, great to see these blasts from the past get used! One card that you might consider for ramp is Thran Turbine, could give you a free cycle each turn. As for lower CMC creatures, some that I think could be useful are Cryptbreaker, Stoic Champion, Ruthless Sniper, Cho-Arrim Alchemist, Pack Rat, Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Undertaker, and Devout Witness, since they get a different kind of value out of discards than cycling. Similarly, Key to the City and Smuggler's Copter can allow you to use discards for different kinds of value.

As far as other cards related to cycling go, did you consider Ash Barrens, Gilded Light, Stir the Sands, Unearth, Radiant's Judgment, Street Wraith, Viscera Dragger, and Pitiless Vizier? I'm not sure if those fit in perfectly, but they might be worth considering.

If you wanted to make all players discard but have you benefit more from it, you might consider cards like Oppression and Necrogen Mists. I also think Library of Leng is worth looking at, but it might not fit your strategy.

Do you think getting Hellbent is something you are looking to do with this deck? If the former, maybe something like Gibbering Descent, Asylum Visitor, Dark Suspicions, Grim Strider, or Hollowborn Barghest could be interesting. In either case, some card draw like Phyrexian Arena could be very useful.

Also, watch out for Stabilizer!

Said on The Thirteenth Year...

Thank you, UnleashedHavok! That's an interesting thought, the first thing I saw when looking over the Swell the Host precon is that there are only 10-15 cards that involve counters. This can be problematic if Vorel is helming, since without counters to double, Vorel is basically dead weight. There are a lot of quality cards in the precon, notably Solemn Simulacrum and Eternal Witness, but if you want synergy, I think Ezuri does a much better job. The large number of high-quality weenies is essential for triggering Ezuri's ability as many times as possible. Ezuri also has an inevitability to him that Vorel doesn't, since the experience and +1/+1 counters will pile up, and your opponents can't interact with the experience counters. I think both Vorel and Ezuri work well in the 99 when the other is helming the deck, but as far as using the precon as a shell, I think you're better off having Ezuri helm it with Vorel in the 99.
