Is Vizier of the Menagerie Justified in this Deck?

Commander Deck Help forum

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?

Yea I'd replace it with a creature that tutors for something

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.

My Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma has a little more than 30 creatures, and I have a vizier in there without questions. Considering Chulane's draw ability can easily help you get non-creatures away from the top, you shouldn't have any problem chaining creature after creature after creature with these two on the field.

One user has voted in favor of removing the vizier, but two have voted in favor of keeping it in, so I shall keep it, unless another user votes in favor of removing it; I actually am looking for a reason to put Augury Owl into that deck, so I wonder if there is another creature that I could remove, instead?

Since the lion is involved, i'll toss Quickling in the mix.
