Pharzi is usually played only with Transmogrify, Reincarnation or Daidalos. It works very well with those but I think it's too situational in a Starnoid deck.

oh so you dont run hulcus at all?
and no magris as well? i would run 6x hulcus if i could XD

what does your build look like?

pharzi is good with late game awe recycling as well as stream recycling.
but indeed a bit situational. also the 2 mana cost is not that preferable.

here with 2 streams however i wont run it since i rather snipe shields with tulk early game as well as having an easier starnoid drop mid- game

No Hulcus nor Magris in Starnoid. Energy Streams (Brain Serum is something to consider also, depending on meta game) and Merfolk especially combined with Emeral and Syrion are enough.

I know that you could get away with Emeral -> Hulcus -> Kolon/Nariel -> Starnoid/Merfolk (-> Starnoid + Vess), but I have preferred to drop Syrion or cast Energy Stream on the 3rd turn.

Also, I generally have used just 3 Starnoids because of the decent amount of draw in the deck.

there are a lot of reasons why hulcus is considered one of the best cards in the TCG.
how can you pass that up Razz?
hulcus is a free body, not just a body that "preserves hand"

your finnish meta is very aggro oriented though so i see(but dont suggest) why you run just 3 starnoids.

Hulcus is not a free body, you have to pay for it. Preserving your hand is the exact definition what Hulcus does (plus makes your deck smaller while doing that). Hulcus is awesome but I wouldn't play it in more control type Starnoid.

That said, if you run both Hulcus and Magris, you really get a nice LW Starnoid aggro deck even if you wouldn't end up summoning Starnoid.

its not free in that sense. paradise aroma isnt as well. if it drew 1 then it would be.
of course you have to pay.

i mean:

0 cards in hand mid/late game: topdeck hulcus ->  draw another card and play it.

maybe my wording was off/wrong but i spam the field with magris/ hulcus late game when i got controlled.
now i am running lucky balls instead of maxed magris , hoping for early tulks/emerals.

topdeck tulk = tulk
topdeck magris/hulcus then tulk = 2 creatures on field. this is what i mean with free
if you draw multiple hulcus/magris off of each other this becomes even more apperant. thats what i mean with free. its not just about preserving the hand.

you udnerstood my deck, summoning starnoid isnt that easy vs control. you get disrupted,controlled.
thats why i pressure with cards that are more disruption-safe.
