Ezuri, Claw of Progress

Ezuri, Claw of Progress

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian 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.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Goretast on Vorel +1/+1 Counter Casual Deck

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
