Ezuri, Claw of Progress

Ezuri, Claw of Progress

Legendary Creature — Elf Warrior

Whenever a creature with power 2 or less enters the battlefield under your control, you get an experience counter.

At the beginning of combat on your turn, put X +1/+1 counters on another target creature you control, where X is the number of experience counters you have.

Thanks for the comments!

I did have Helix Pinnacle in, but Vorel can't target it to double its counters so I ended up cutting it for Darksteel Reactor . It is a threatening card that's hard to remove so I'll try to squeeze it back in. Illusionist's Bracers is a big yes for sure. This started as a budget deck, but now I can put it in.

I do like Ezuri, Claw of Progress aswell and will try to find a cut for it soon.

OMG you beat me to Helix Pinnacle. Illusionist's Bracers is fun and you have enough small creatures to get a lot of use out of Ezuri, Claw of Progress . Green has a few Instants that untap your creatures. You could have "insufficient blockers", untap everybody, tap Vorel and suddenly have a blocker that murders whomever.

The question has me thinking: Has anyone ever tried Sultai Elves with both Meren and Ezuri, Claw of Progress ? You could even include Momir Vig, Simic Visionary to be able to tutor for the two of them. The most fitting commander I can imagine is either Muldrotha or Brokkos, Apex of Forever . This seems pretty interesting, actually...

Ezuri, Claw of Progress has so many cheap value creatures, you can build an insane boardstate quickly. On the more expensive end, I play a Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck that's dragon tribal, but running him with a bunch of cascade/free cost spell and effects can turn a modest field into insanity rather rapidly. Doran, the Siege Tower lets you play a lot of defensive creatures that can easily turn around and wreck someone. A more general option is Surrak Dragonclaw who has the colors and support for dropping huge creatures and dealing damage.

Oversimplify: I think everyone here knows my feelings on these kind of effects at this point.

Ruxa, Patient Professor: Cute, even if I never personally cared about vanilla tribal.

Fractal Harness: It's neat that the pseudo-Living Weapon part is basically optional since the token will be dead on arrival if you go with X = 0. Obviously another toy for Skullbriar, the Walking Grave . If I got it right, this will trigger Ezuri, Claw of Progress regardless of the value of X, which makes it extra neat for him

Theoretical Duplication: Oof. I doubt you'll get more than one batch of tokens out of this, but basically silencing all Creature spells (and Creature cheating) after the first thing you plagiarize is pretty good too. Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer got another toy in addition to Rionya, Fire Dancer

Spawning Kraken: This could have been a seafood commander in its own right, which makes me think that's something they're going to release relatively soon

Replication Technique: This seems way better than Creative Technique ; you can come to an agreement over what's copied, making it way more predictable

Perplexing Test: Brudiclaaaaad

Deekah, Fractal Theorist: Meh. Slightly more expensive Talrand, Sky Summoner that forces you to keep track of a lot of dice

Esix, Fractal Bloom: Spooky art; more what I had in mind when I heard about the creature type. Anyway, Avenger of Zendikar obviously curves nicely from this, probably intentionally so. Note that it doesn't restrict you to copying just your own creatures.

I think you got the right idea; Ezuri, Claw of Progress is pretty similar in the sense that you want to go both wide and tall so you might want to check out his decks for inspiration

Echoing Equation: Brudiclad is very sad that this card has a simic color identity (cough Thousand-Faced Heroics cough). Anyway, point this at Najeela, the Blade-Blossom or Ezuri, Claw of Progress and you'll likely threaten to kill someone. Xyris, the Writhing Storm can produce an absurd amount of sneks for similar results on the turn after, while Edric, Spymaster of Trest can probably make you deck yourself with a source of evasion

Fervent Mastery: Look, it's red Buried Alive !

Spined Drake: Ironically, this set will probably not have Tidehollow Strix and friends

Codie, Vociferous Codex: Rainbow spellslinger Nikya of the Old Ways ! Taps for a profit of one mana and gives spellslinger cascade. Might want to include at least a few permanents for casting before this

Magma Opus etc: okay so the Prismaris mechanical identity seems to be big MV spells matters + Treasure tokens, partially trough "Treasure Cycling".

Solve the Equation: curiously, I think this is the cheapest and least convoluted way for blue to tutor for an instant or sorcery directly to hand

Wandering Archaic // Explore the Vastlands: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS THING? Really creepy and aesthetically out of place with the rest of the set. That front side ability is pretty wild too. Taxing on all spellslinging, or copy as punishment? And it's entirely colorless?? Whew.

Gálazeth Prismari: Obvious Urza, Lord High Artificer comparison here. Turn all those Treasures into spellslinger mana rocks. Not nearly as much gravy as Urza (for one, you have to actually have the artifacts tap themselves, like a peasant), and it's a bit awkward that you kind of want both artifact cards and spellslinger cards, even if tokens are a thing.

Tanazir Quandrix: kinda underwhelming design-wise, but I guess the simic soreness has had time to set in by now. Feels kinda weird that the first ability encourages you to go tall, while the second one wants to go wide. Ezuri, Claw of Progress buddy?

Multiple Choice: Maybe not extremely powerful, but it's hard not to love the flavor

Rootha, Mercurial Artist: A reusable Fork in the command zone? Pretty weird, Wizards.

Exotus: Kinda disappointing seeing as he's the set's big bad? Even greater tension between spellslinger and creatures than the Prismari Dragon
