Said on Varolz Hulk...

Yea, the description needs an update, but I've been a bit too busy recently (and a bit too lazy), but I'll get around to it eventually.

The 1cmc almost always goes toward Safekeeper, making the pile immune to removal is incredibly good in general, although it's also nice for being able to get a sac outlet without access to Snatcher if there's no Varolz on board already. Masticore's discard is definitely a relevant part of the card, being able to pitch Hulk in a pinch by casting it is pretty nice. The ping is less relevant, but is strict upside over having a Wingrattle on the board.

Amber's just not really what the deck's looking for, and you already sorta nailed why: getting Varolz out is usually going to be the sticking point, after that, we have a lot more mana to work with in general, due to all the rituals and other mana accelerants in the deck, that produce more mana per card investment than Amber does.
