That sounds like something I would enjoy helping brew if you post a list to get started on. Hell, if you have a way to play it online I will help you playtest it so we can fine tune it even more. Mirror match or whatever you think is clever.

You would likely need a bunch of artifact hate to shut down mana rocks if you want to prevent them from doing much mana wise. Almost all non-green cEDH decks rely on mana rocks for acceleration so that would have to be a big part of the equation.

Bowngnawer, All excellent Ideas.

Everything has been updated accordingly. I didn't fit Trophy mage in there because I only need one creature that can fetch curio. I added Fabricate instead so that I can use a creature tutor to grab any three drop with Drift of Phantasms, and a spell tutor to grab the fabricate, which can grab me any artifact I might need Curio or otherwise. Both of those seem more flexible then trophy mage because they can grab stuff other then the curio if I don't have it in my library for whatever reason.

With the addition of Mausoleum Wanderer, I now have a total of eight one drops, twice the number needed for the flash hulk combo. I feel like that makes my odds of having at least four one drops in my library at any given time pretty good.

Old momir was my first commander too.

I like what you have done with this. If you have access to infinite draw why are you not using Laboratory Maniac to win? It seems much stronger then having to move to combat with infinite creatures. (and easier to do)

Also side note, you seem like the kind of person I could really use some input from. I'm curious what you think of my cEDH deck that is also simic-flash-hulk in style: EzurggroTech

+1 from me

Bowngnawer, I like it.

I will second that movement.

Profit of Kruphix is banned, That would be my first cut for Mycoloth if I was you.

If your playgroup allows her, then by all means keep her in.

My second choice for card to cut would be master biomancer. He often makes it so creatures enter bigger, which means no Ezuri trigger/XP for the deck. He is great in nearly every other deck though, and possibly one of my favorite pictures on a MTG card.

I love me some Claw of Progress!

if you have time, check out mine on my profile.

+1 from me!

sonnet666, Thanks man. feel free to talk to me on my wall or on my deck page.

I actually started with your list and brought it to a facebook group that the lab maniac guys run. That group was telling me that I should cut the HD combo (and maybe even a backup plan altogether). Run more Stax, do the flash hulk combo for a win etc. Since then I have been play testing it and trying to streamline the thing. I would be more then happy to find a way to play against your deck so you can see it in action if you are feeling up for it. although to be perfectly honest it looks like you are getting swamped with things to do just on this page alone. So no Hard feelings if you don't get around to it, but if you won't consider my deck for a link here then maybe think about a bump in tier? having access to hulk flash seemed to put this deck on the next level. for that matter the challenge to play my deck is open to all, I need to playtest the thing and I want to show you guys that Claw of progress is the real deal (at least for a commander that has been sitting on teir 3 for a very long time). lol

So feel free to hit me up for games!

buildingadeck, I personally think Atraxa just needs bumped down. Most of the cEDH players that run those colors just use partners instead. Proliferate is a slow mechanic. Maybe I just haven't seen any strong decks with her at the helm. nearly every decent deck in those colors I have seen do Tymna + Thrasios instead.

thegigibeast, I feel that the list has needed an update for a bit now. With sonnet666's return (sorry for your loss mate) you can maybe work on the deck list a bit more. As far as I was able to tell from when last we talked the list hasn't been updated since the hulk unban?

Maybe that is just because of my Claw of progress brew that you said you would give some feedback on? (EzurggroTech)

For what it is worth, I am willing to help out where I can. I feel like Ravos and Kess look to have spots higher then tier 3. I have even seen some brews where Inalla might be higher then tier 3 but I am skeptical on that one.

Ohthenoises Good call!

I have been really wanting to squeeze Magus of the Candelabra in here to help break winter orb a bit more. and I know just which creature to cut for it.

I have run Consecrated Sphinx in the past. The first copy I bought of him was for this deck. It is just too hard to get out and resolve, or to keep in play for that matter as he is usually a big target.

I totally agree on Remora, as soon as I have playtested this newest version a bit more and figured out what to cut it will be the first card I am putting in. Thanks for the comment!

I don't know if you will believe me, but I have tried running every one of those cards in this deck at one point. some of them I likely got the idea for from looking at yours. lots of those cards were good to me, but wouldn't hold up in a play group where people are winning on turn four.

If you are willing, I would like to know how you do that neat little black box that scrolls down when you click on it. I haven't learned that trick yet. I think it would be very helpful while I am working on the primer for this deck. :)

You comment really got me thinking about that card. I ended up replacing it with Elvish Visionary surprisingly. The point of it was to get me infinite draw with the Aluren + Cloudstone Curio combo set up. I realized after your comment that I was blinking creatures repeatedly to get the draw and it would be more efficient to simply run a creature that draws a card upon entering that battlefield. I'm not sure how that evaded me before, but thank you for pointing that card out! It really helped me get things sorted out for this deck.

Hey guys, I did a major overhaul on EzurggroTech.

thegigibeast, sonnet666, or anyone who is interested in seeing a streamlined Ezuri, Claw of Progress deck.

I just changed out another 20-25 cards. This deck has been starting to get a lot more attention from people.

It made "#16 on 2017-08-01" and has seen well over a three thousand views at this point.

Most of that is recent.

I would still love to see it linked here, If anyone knows what else I could do to either improve the deck or get it voted to put as an example deck, I would love to hear what you have to say. Thanks for your time everyone!
