I have this lovely Sisay, Weatherlight Captain politics/kingmaker deck! It's got a really fun new toy from C19 in Pramikon, Sky Rampart .

I play a lot of +1/+1 counter decks and I've tried a lot of commanders for the strategy, including some of my favorites; Marath, Will of the Wild , Marchesa, the Black Rose , Ezuri, Claw of Progress (which uses, weirdly, a lot of the same creatures as UG enchantress, minus the bogles), and I bet I could make a really weird, cool one with Feather, the Redeemed using Heroic + a lot of Support and other +1-counter-related spells. We'll see.

I also play a lot of aristocrats, my favorite commanders for that being Meren of Clan Nel Toth (who my spikier friends were quite concerned about), Korvold, Fae-Cursed King (who is very easy to just pop off with), and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan partnered with Ravos, Soultender (yes, that's a +1 counter deck too but it's more of an aristocrat deck)

I also have a Roon of the Hidden Realm blink deck, Sygg, River Cutthroat and Daxos of Meletis decks that focus on combat triggers, a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aura deck, a Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer token deck, an Emmara, Soul of the Accord tap tribal deck that is sad beans after losing Paradox Engine , an Aminatou, the Fateshifter topdeck matters/trading permanents deck, an Odric, Lunarch Marshal keyword tribal deck, a Feldon of the Third Path deck (you can guess what it does), a Karlov of the Ghost Council voltron deck (yes, you heard me right), and a WUBRG Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck headed by King Kenrith himself!

That being said, my decks haven't been upgraded in a while. Most of them still hold up, but we'll see. Maybe I'll make some alterations.

@bushido_man96: I believe a bigger issue here is what the heck happened to the other comments; unless nobody cared to help in the slightest until as of late.

That being said, I think how it works is that the Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests is already Power 2 at default; & given that they'll be played ALOT, they can be used for huge boosts for Power & Toughness. Even if they are flipped Face Up, there is no restriction for what the amount of Power a Face-Up Creature can have; they can be over 2 Power, & still get the bonus anyway.

...As for flipping them Face-Up, I'm sorry to say, but the Jury is out on that one. Worth a question to ask though. :D

I hope this works for you, I mean, I had to RTFC better than I should've before; I too thought Ezuri, Claw of Progress ' distribution of +1/+1 Counters are only restricted to those w/ 2 Power or lower. IMFW (I aM F---ing Wrong). CMDR Damage, so much possibility, I've never thought of before; a true stallion in this deck.

But I still ask: Any other cards that work with stuff that help w/ either/both (Morphs & Similar.), & support 2 Power stuff (Morphs & Similar; they all have 2/2 Face-Down)? Thanks for the comment BTW! :D

How does Ezuri, Claw of Progress work with the counters? If you put counters on a face-down creature, then morph it, do the counters stay?

(I personally ponder IF I should do this for all my decks...)

Q1: There are >100 cards in this deck, so the first priority is what cards are worth cutting?

Q2: Any Misc. Cards also worth adding? Since we're dealing w/ Morphs/Megamorphs/Manifests, Stuff that benefit from & ≤2 Power, or anything of the sort can help.

Q3 FINAL: After all those, what to cut to 100 cards even?

I hope this help about such a deck like this. Thanks for the Help, if any.

Unfortunately you can't target Stonecoil Serpent with the Ezuri, Claw of Progress trigger due to that "protection from multicolored" ability. Ezuri is multicolored and the source of the targeting ability, and thus protection applies here.

This might be an obvious question&answer, but I’d like to make sure. With my Ezuri, Claw of Progress deck, after I cast the new Stonecoil Serpent , can the counters from Ezuri be moved on to the Serpent?

I know Ezuri himself is multicolour, but I’m just unsure because of the interaction with adding/moving counters.

ZorrosRage I like both those cards, especially the prodigy. I'm just testing to see what works best.

Aiden_Phelps I've added Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension to help close out games and both have worked out pretty well. I also added Ezuri, Claw of Progress after watching a video of MTGMuddstah where someone was using him in a Kadena deck and was impressed. The deck draws a ton of cards, and has been really fun to play.

Ezuri, Claw of Progress allows one to gain an experience counter every time a creature with 2 or less power enters the battlefield on your side. So if Clockwork Dragon comes into play, does this trigger Ezuri's first ability as the +1/+1s are an enter the battlefield effect, so which gets triggered first or do they trigger simultaneously? Thanks, as I thought this may be a good idea for a commander deck.
