Vizier of the Menagerie

Creature — Naga Cleric

You may look at the top card of your library. (You may do this at any time)

You may cast the top card of your library if it's a creature card.

You may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast creature spells.

Sorry for the double post, but I forgot to suggest Vizier of the Menagerie.

Yes, that's enough creatures to get consistent value from Vizier of the Menagerie.

Vizier is better for your deck than Skyward Eye Prophets which is too much mana for what it does. Skyward could be replaced by Whitemane Lion? Whiteman lets you trigger Chulane many times because it can bounce itself, even on opponent turns because it has flash.

Whitemane Lion and Shrieking Drake are some creature reasons to play Vizier of the Menagerie because you want all white or all blue mana to keep casting these creatures to keep triggering Chulane.

I have a copy of Vizier of the Menagerie in my Chulane, Teller of Tales EDH deck, but I wonder if that deck contains a sufficient number of creatures to justify the inclusion of the vizier, so I would like to ask the members of this forum for their opinion.

That deck contains 31 creatures, including Chulane and the vizier, which is almost one-third of the deck, which is not too bad, in my mind, but I wonder if that is sufficient, or if I should replace the vizier with another creature that has an ability that triggers when the creature enters the battlefield.

What does everyone else say about this? Does my Chulane deck contain sufficient number of creatures to justify the inclusion of Vizier of the Menagerie?

I have replaced Shared Summons and Vizier of the Menagerie with Circle of Dreams Druid and King Darien XLVIII, which decreased the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.77 to 3.66, because, as great as the former cards were, I feel that this deck does not contains a sufficient number of creatures to justify their inclusion, despite the deck being heavily focused on creatures.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: Seems like I forgot to answer to your last post. I've got the chance to put something else into Archelos, so Augur of Autumn was added here. It took some thinking, but I actually removed Garruk's Horde for it. BothbAugur and Vizier of the Menagerie do what it does better, and I have six etb or cast related draw effects. Horde would be a 7/7 french vanilla most of the time, so I decided to replace it. Regarding Enclave: I think I don't actually need it. As I mentioned, the deck has lots of card draw, and I really like what Primal Order can do here. Thus, I'll try to keep the number of non-basics to a minimum.

As you've already helped so much, might I asked if you have any ideas for cuts for Rishkar's Expertise and Harvest Season?

Hi DecadeFire ad everyone, sorry I had to be absent for a while :)

I tried Circle of Dreams Druid and IMO it is too slow for its cost. Better to have Priest of Titania and leave it at that. Of course, if you cannot allow yourself a Gaea's Cradle then for sure you should run this as a budget option.

Saryth, the Viper's Fang doesn't do anything for this list that is particularly needed, especially at 4 CMC. I think the current list has all the 4 drop slots already crammed with the best options.

Also, Augur of Autumn feels like a worse Vizier of the Menagerie, who is not in the least for the same reasoning as above regarding 4 drops.

You know what makes our 1/1 really scary in combat? Our commander ;)

Cheap permenants that you can lay down with Vaevectis or other similar cards that then also give you mana: Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder also lets you draw so you can sac him with Asmadi for a profit. For similar "when permanent enters the battlefield" effect maybe Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.

Consider creating tokens to sac with Asmadi as well: Dragonlair Spider and Grave Titan

Asmadi is always a huge threat so you'll have to keep him safe with cards like Sylvan Safekeeper Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak.

Chaos Warp is a staple of jund and you could use it if someone tries to get rid of Asmadi. Deathsprout and Decimate are really good jund removal cards as well. Primal Surge is a lot of mana but a good alternative win condition.

Also assuming that Asmaldi gets to stay on the field then here are some good cards that let you make sure whatever you get with him is good: Augur of Autumn, Haunted Crossroads, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire, Brutalizer Exarch, Courser of Kruphix, Vizier of the Menagerie, Crystal Ball, and Call of the Wild. On the other hand, here are some cards to make sure whatever your opponents get from Asmaldi isn't good: Painful Memories, Agonizing Memories.

Then here are some big creatures you could get for free with Asmaldi: Woodfall Primus, Borborygmos Enraged, Kodama of the East Tree, and Artisan of Kozilek. Lurking Predators is also useful for this feature as well as setting up what's on top of your deck.

Mortuary Mire is probably a good addition to the deck as well.

Have you thought about Mystic Forge at all? It works the same way with morph as Vizier of the Menagerie plus gives you a way to manipulate the top of your deck. Also The Great Henge is some amazing draw power and a little bit of life gain.
