Whale Wolf: a man's best friend. That's how the saying goes, right? At least, that's how Cazur, Ruthless Stalker and Ukkima, Stalking Shadow see it. This dynamic duo really puts the "partner" in partners in crime, and with good reason. They hunt in a team, stalking their game until its guard is let down. From the shadows, Ukkima, Stalking Shadow waits. With a flick of his fin, he strikes quickly and decisively. The game falls to the ground, and our bonded pair leaves with their game anchored over Ukkima, Stalking Shadow's scaled back.

Building around partners in Commander is vastly different than building around a singular legend. One must factor in two different mana costs as well as two different abilities. While good on their own, the two work in harmony to create a symphony out of your 99. When looking at Cazur, Ruthless Stalker and Ukkima, Stalking Shadow, we see that Cazur, Ruthless Stalker takes on a more supportive role whereas Ukkima, Stalking Shadow takes on the role of the aggressor. The ultimate goal of this deck is to plant multiple counters, swing big, and hit hard. If Ukkima, Stalking Shadow happens to leave the battlefield, the payoff is even greater than if he stayed.

The Must-Includes

At first glance Plaxcaster Frogling seems very basic. However, upon further investigation, its secondary ability is what makes this little mutant shine. Many of the creatures in this deck are susceptible to targeted removal. Plaxcaster Frogling is the solution to this! While the caveat of its activated ability is that the creature must have a +1/+1 counter on it, most creatures if not all within this deck should have counters on them. The fact that this ability is repeatable definitely makes this card a must-include!

What if I told you that all your creatures could be unblockable? What if I then told you you could do that for less than $2? I present to you Herald of Secret Streams. I've seen this card played in a lot of kumena, tyrant or orazca decks but was shocked to find that this card is played in only 3% of 192721 decks on EDHRec. Herald of Secret Streams is a game ender in this deck. Most of our creatures will have counters on them, especially Ukkima, Stalking Shadow, and unblockable Commander damage with the possibility of shroud (thanks to our Plaxcaster Frogling) is a must in this deck.

Veni! Vidi! Vigor! This lovely elemental is not only stunning to look at but a force to be reckoned with when paired with our pair of partners. Vigor prevents all damage dealt to our creatures and instead gives them +1/+1 counters for each damage prevented. Not only does this protect our creatures, but it makes them bigger instead. The payoff is huge when it comes to Vigor, making it the perfect card for the 99.

The Latecomers

When building this deck I noticed that there was very little card draw. I was a bit disappointed that I left this out originally, especially since blue and green are notorious for it. This led me to the late additions of Guardian Project, Rhystic Study, and Mystic Remora. Guardian Project essentially allows us to draw a card each time a creature we control enters the battlefield. Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora are both enchantments that are notorious for inspiring salt amongst your opponents and can guarantee you a card draw. As someone who is very stingy with their mana, I personally don't like to pay the one, and an early Mystic Remora essentially means an auto draw since it can be hard to pay four mana on turns 1-3!

The Cuts

I built this deck one month ago, and upon revisiting it I immediately saw that things needed to be cut. It's quite interesting to leave a decklist alone and see where our heads were when it was first conceptualized. Looking back at my original list, I am still unsure why I added End-Raze Forerunners and Finale of Devastation. Both cards require a lot of mana. The decks' mana curve felt unbalanced with the addition of these two cards, so they were ultimately removed and supplemented with Guardian Project, Rhystic Study, and Mystic Remora.

The MVP

Cazur, Ruthless Stalker and Ukkima, Stalking Shadow are a perfect pair. There is no doubt about it. However, lately I've been thinking about how cool it would be if you could have three Commanders at once (and no, I'm not talking about partners with a companion). While I know this is a pipe dream, I began to think about who would be the perfect third in this possible band of trio! Then it hit me. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan. This card's abilities function so well with Cazur, Ruthless Stalker and Ukkima, Stalking Shadow that it's quite shocking. If Ukkima, Stalking Shadow didn't pair only with Cazur, Ruthless Stalker, I would argue that the whale wolf makes a better partner with Reyhan, Last of the Abzan than it does with Cazur, Ruthless Stalker. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan essentially allows you to put all the +1/+1 counters from a creature that died onto another creature. This can be painful when paired with Ukkima, Stalking Shadow, and can quickly help you achieve victory through our secret spice.

The Secret Spice

To me, the secret spice is always a card that sneaks up on you and grabs hold. This particular card is a card that I absolutely adore: Simic Ascendancy. This card synergies well with almost every card in the deck and is a win-con that can be easily achieved. Cards like Bioshift, Forgotten Ancient, Necropolis Regent, Corpsejack Menace, and Death's Presence make the 20-counter threshold for Simic Ascendancy incredibly low. Proliferate cards like Sword of Truth and Justice, Karn's Bastion, and Contagion Engine can also help facilitate a win with this cheap enchantment.

The Flavor Win

Cazur, Ruthless Stalker and Ukkima, Stalking Shadow are a bonded pair. Their relationship is a symbiotic one: the hunter and the tracker. But how did this come to pass? The Ozolith. According to the lore, The Ozolith is the cause of the bonding of monsters and men on Ikoria. Without this crystal behemoth jutting from the earth, our commanders would not exist. Their symbiotic relationship would instead be the hunter and the prey. Not only is this card incredibly flavorful, it also functions beautifully and synergistically with our partners. The Ozolith stores counters when Ukkima, Stalking Shadow or any other creature leaves the battlefield. You can move the counters on and off The Ozolith, transferring them to other creatures at the beginning of your combat phase. This can make your creatures a bigger threat, make Ukkima, Stalking Shadow's payoff greater, and can trigger Simic Ascendancy

The Too Good Not to Play

Have you ever looked at a card and said "Oh god that's disgusting GIVE IT TO ME NOW!" Once Kalonian Hydra card hits the battlefield, you're sure to become a target and for good reason! When it attacks, it doubles the amount of counters on all of your creatures. This ability is a wide sweep that maximizes the overall theme of the deck. Corpsejack Menace also doubles the counters placed on your creatures without the attack trigger. Imagine attacking with Kalonian Hydra with a Corpsejack Menace on the battlefield. Your creatures will go from big to huge in a matter of seconds. Counter doublers in this deck are too good not to run and can also help trigger Simic Ascendancy if you have trouble making contact with your opponents. Lastly, we have Contagion Engine. While its enters-the-battlefield trigger can eventually kill a creature your opponent controls, we can best utilize it through its activated ability—the ability to proliferate twice can touch all your creatures and can be doubled with Corpsejack Menace.

The Most Likely to Get Cut

Looking at the deck at its current state, it pains me to say that I feel Ezuri, Claw of Progress is probably going to get cut. This card screams +1/+1 counters but the deck has 12 creatures with power two or less. The best case scenario is that you hit every one of your 12 possible hits with Ezuri, Claw of Progress and get 12 counters. Ezuri, Claw of Progress seems to be better as a single Commander rather than in the overall deck. The other cut I would make is Skullbriar, the Walking Grave. While the creature has the ability to gain a counter after combat damage, it doesn't synergize well with the rest of the deck. If drawn late game, Skullbriar, the Walking Grave feels more like a let-down than something to turn the tides in your favor.

Parting Thoughts

This was one of the first decks I built from the new Ikoria round of legendaries. The concept of unblockable +1/+1 counters with the added benefit of damage and life gain fascinated me from the start. In order to further tweak the deck, I would possibly add more protection and more board wipes. I would also like to dig deeper into the life gain and damage death by Ukkima, Stalking Shadow as a sub-theme, though I would be wary when doing this, as I want balance between the counters and the damage dealt. 

A monster approached Cazur, Ruthless Stalker, a snarl on its snout. It inched its way closer to the warrior, shimmying its shoulders down, preparing to pounce.

[Cazur](cazur, ruthless stalker] smirked and whistled.

"Sic 'em, boy".

From behind the beast loomed Ukkima, Stalking Shadow, and the monster was no more.
