Vizier of Remedies
Creature — Human Cleric
If one or more -1/-1 counters would be put on a creature you control, that many -1/-1 counters minus one are put on it instead.

Tl;dr: i'd like to play a deck with a persist combo to trigger etb and ltb effects (or similar), but i don't know which is better between Abzan, Jund or WRGB.
Long version to contextualize: my first legendary creature ever was Teneb, the Harvester and i wanted to build something in its colours. Looking for something Abzan does better than others i found out that persist combo has a lot of pieces to work with in that wedge: green and white have a lot of persisting creature, some sacrifice outlet, some tutor and a lot of ways to give +1/+1 counter to creature entering the battlefield; black offers tutors, sacrifice outlets and ETB/LTB triggers. The problem is that abzan doesn't have exactly the best commanders ever. Teneb himself is more of a value oriented beefcake, Karador and Ghave are better in this role, but not exceptional and i'm not familiar with partners.
Jund, on the other side, trades all the nice counter sinergies of white ( Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Juniper Order Ranger , Good-Fortune Unicorn , Vizier of Remedies ) plus Corpse Knight and Cruel Celebrant , for the big bad Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and its cousin Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and everything they bring along such as Grumgully, the Generous and Murderous Redcap .
There's also the option of going WRBG, but it may be too greedy.
Has anyone experience with this kind of deck? If yes, what do you play? If not, what would you like to play? Thanks for your time.

ArkMasters I appreciate that. Exactly the type of feedback I’m looking for, especially from people who get to play cEDH games more than I.
On the Devoted Druid combo, I had considered adding that. I’m just having trouble finding space. i.e. I would add Carpet of Flowers before Vizier of Remedies . Any cards I touch in Ramp, land untappers, or combo Accelerant decrease turn 4/5 combo chance. I don’t want to touch interaction. Which leaves land or Elesh?
I agree there is more optimization to be done, just not sure where it is at the moment without significantly more play-testing than I get.

If you try W/B, Geralf's Messenger is a pretty solid sac outlet, though he doesn't work with Anafenza or the Vizier. There's also Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder as sac engines, though neither are as efficient as the Altar you're already running.

Melira and druid is not a combo because Melira says -1/-1 counters can't be placed on creatures you control; so you can never actually place on it. Vizier of Remedies on the other hand is a https://tappedout.net/subscriptions/subscribe/44/11626902/?return_url=/mtg-decks/23-09-19-chulane-combo/combo with druid.

Unfortunately, Melira, Sylvok Outcast shuts down Devoted Druid s untap effect. The druid requires a -1/-1 which Melira prevents. Though, if you add white, to use Ghave, Guru of Spores as your Commander, you could add Vizier of Remedies and that would work. But you'd loos the all important second half of Slimefoot

It seems really good, possibly too good, honestly, too good, but it doesn't make any deck that didn't already exist as a good deck get a ton better...
Except Devoted Druid combo. That deck may make this busted. Turn one dig for Druid or Vizier of Remedies , rarely a bad topdeck either. This deck that just got Giver of Runes for protection, as well as Finale of Devastation and Eladamri's Call ...
That deck is the only one I see this card singlehandedly making busted. There is a chance other cards in the set will make this card too powerful as well. Imagine it is a cycle ;-;.
