Abzan Ascendancy Discussion

Eh, Abzan already has ridiculous removal. I am not really sure a sometimes better Utter End is all that necessary.

One card I am enjoying quite well in my version is Abzan Ascendancy. Getting an initial burst of +1/+1 counters for Tayam, and then random 1/1 creatures afterwords is pretty strong. Golgari Germination is another one.

all of your lands enter tapped, which makes it kind of slow for the CMC of your creatures. to replace Stroke of Genius you could add Blue Sun's Zenith or Braingeyser . Herald of Anafenza is a token creator with outlast. Abzan Ascendancy puts counters on all your creatures to make them get the benefits of Abzan Battle Priest and Abzan Falconer . if you want more things with outlast that benefit all your creatures Ainok Bond-Kin , Mer-Ek Nightblade , Tuskguard Captain , Longshot Squad . those are options, not what will necessarily make your deck better.

Not sure how you are viewing your wincon in this deck but these are some cards that came to mind that work with both your enchantment theme and Ghave, Guru of Spores :

  1. Abzan Ascendancy
  2. First Response
  3. Necrogenesis
  4. Ooze Flux
  5. Aura Shards
  6. Oath of the Ancient Wood
  7. Death's Presence

Pir, Imaginative Rascal is another option to add counters. Rishkar, Peema Renegade will turn any creature with a counter on it into a mana dork, ramping you well. Fertilid becomes very nice if you can keep adding counters to it, basically allowing you to Rampant Growth every turn. Spike Feeder and Spike Weaver are also great. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great mana sink for a 1/1 counter deck like this. Champion of Lambholt is another solid creature to consider in this setup.

I think I'd cut Abzan Ascendancy and Cached Defenses . You'll have plenty of bolstering opportunities on creatures and whatnot, so I'd consider another removal option or card draw option instead. Cut three lands, too.

I encourage you to get more card draw and ramp. Zendikar Resurgent provides both, and is fairly budget. Mirari's Wake is nice, but pricier. Shamanic Revelation , Rishkar's Expertise , and Beast Whisperer are all nice card draw options. You should run about 10 if you can. Some good options in include Greed , Vampiric Rites , and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.

A deck wanting to use Phyrexian Obliterator, without Arena or the already mentioned Gray Merchant of Asphodel seems odd. That being said this looks solid, main-deck graveyard hate/draw in the form of Nihil Spellbomb, is a good choice at the moment as is your removal suite. You probably have too many extraction effect in your sideboard, I'd cut Infinite Obliteration and Cranial Extraction, maybe try Dromoka's Command, Abzan Ascendancy or Lingering Souls?

CaptSillva, thanks for the suggestions. I'm definitely going to add some of those to my deck as soon as I can get the cards. I always looked at Contagion Engine but never thought it was too great of a card, and then I read it more thoroughly and I understand the appeal. Hooded Hydra and Abzan Ascendancy, although good cards, don't work well with my play-style. I'm trying not to do tokens with this deck and focus more on +1/+1 counters instead. I also had to re-read The Mimeoplasm; he's making the deck as well.

Again, I appreciate the feedback.
