I hear you, but i just really disagree on this. I built a Starnoid deck a while ago, and at first i was using Tulk. But after testing it in my very diverse meta, i was just annoyed time after time about how useless Tulk was. Sure its nice when you sit there with 6 mana, and with a Tulk and a Starnoid in your hand, but other than that Tulk just dies. Not being able to even trade with the weakest creatures like Melnia, Deadly Fighter, Bronze Arm Tribe etc is just really unfortunate in many situations. So since i still have another 1-drop Light Bringer in Vess, i decided to try something else instead of Tulk.
So Pharzi the Oracle was the one that came into mind, as it is still very cheap at 2 mana and can trade with other 1000ers. Sure the point of the deck isn't using spells, but you wont say no to a free Energy Stream or Holy Awe back to your hand. You opponent is gonna want to use removal on your evo-bait, to avoid facing Starnoid, but doing so against Pharzi will pay off for you as well. And just the fact that you can suicide into those Melnias, Deadly Fighters etc just maks Pharzi useful in so many ways. I have testet both Tulk and Pharzi for a while now, and Pharzi has been soooooo much more useful. Even against defensive decks that try to make you deck yourself out with Starnoid. Ram Pharzi into something and get back that Holy Awe, so that you can set up for the one-turn kill. I promise you Pharzi is better than Tulk. It can be useful in so many ways, and even gives you advantage if it dies. You can't say that all that stuff is just irrelevant as opposed to Tulk costing 1 instead of 2 mana. We already have Vess as the 1-drop Light Bringer anyways.
