Arbor Armament


Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature. That creature gains reach until end of turn.

Arbor Armament Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Commanders with Tons or Activated ...

I would highly recommend an Experiment Kraj deck. If you go the route with creatures that have Monsterous, then you can have an insane amount of fun.

For example, if you sink 11 mana into Hydra Broodmaster , you'll get 5x 5/5 green Hydra tokens. Then, Experiment Kraj gets the activated Monsterous ability as well, meaning you can dump mana into that sucker next turn and make even more Hydra tokens! :D

And since Kraj doesn't discriminate because he's a good boi living in 2019, he takes all activated abilities from ALL creatures that have a +1/+1 counter on them - not just the ones you control.

I'm not sure off-hand if there are cards that allow you to put +1/+1 counters on other creatures that your opponents control, but I imagine there must be at least a few out there that do.

Just checked. I found Pollenbright Druid . So they do exist. As does Arbor Armament , Battlegrowth , Burst of Strength ... So yes they do exist, you'll just have to look for them.

Skippyeights on Adaptation

I was browsing the Dominaria card list and came across two cards that could work well for you:

Arbor Armament works like the Stony Strength but gives reach for a turn. Other than the Pteramander s you have little air support, and it could take awhile before you can adapt them to make them big enough to kill something. Arbor Armaments might be better in your sideboard depending on your local meta.

The better card I saw in Dominaria is Wild Onslaught . It can give lots of counters and it is an instant. Cast it end of opponents turn, kicked if possible, using Wilderness Reclamation and mana dorks. It's another sneaky (and on-color this time) way to get your Simic Ascendancy to go off without your opponent being able to respond.

Thanks for all the sideboard suggestions. For now, the deck will only exist on Arena, and I'd like to use it in the new BO3 format.

I definitely need some protection against flying in the sideboard. Definitely Arbor Armament and Skatewing Spy . I wonder if it's worth mainboarding the red aggro hate cards, since it's so dominant in the arena meta that I'd likely lose half of my game 1s in BO3 without them.

Also thinking it's probably worth sideboarding-- or even mainboarding-- counterspells and/or enchantment removal. Ravnica Allegiance is stocked with great enchantments, and so that could help me disrupt the slower decks in the meta, especially the Wilderness Reclamation gate stuff, which I see a lot of. And for the same reasons a lot of people are mainboarding enchantment removal (I see a lot of Mortify ), so Negate could be a big help.

All that said, I haven't been able to do any testing, since I'm still building up the wildcards to actually put the deck together.

In reference to Quadsimotto, I agree that there is some concern in matchups vs aggro red being in such a good spot right now. Although krasis is a great card, I think Fountain of Renewal also deserves a sideboard slot, not to mention being cheaper than $35. In reference to the suggestion of skatewing spy and tower defense I would also throw in considering Arbor Armament as it gives the added benefit of a +1 counter for our sharky friend.

I would suggest Arbor Armament over Battlegrowth, because it grants reach. Good deck!

LOVE this!

I spent a ton of time trying to break Silverfur Partisan + Zada, Hedron Grinder when they were in Standard, and it just was never quite there. So it's awesome to see Zada and Mirrorwing tearing it up in Modern!

I personally like Blossoming Defense over Vines of Vastwood in this deck. Vines is better in Infect, because the extra two points of damage can make all the difference in the world. Maybe in the side though, for matchups when the team needs a little more protection? It also has the really fun edge cases where you can cast it on an opponent's creature so they can't pump/Equip/etc their team :-)

I found myself wanting something for boardwipes, and also something besides Mirrorwing for Flyers ... maybe some Heroic Intervention and Vines of the Recluse (or maybe Arbor Armament) in the sideboard?

Draw well!

x12721 on Counter Surge Upgrade Budget

Land upgrade is Blooming Marsh (you really want access to both colors of mana T1). I would recommend Doomfall over Slice in Twain and 1x Duress. Arbor Armament isn't a great card, I would replace them with Sentinel Totem for some graveyard hate. Mainboard: remove the Maulfist Revolutionary for one more Llanowar Elves and another Walking Ballista. There's much better removal than Walk the Plank as well, while Vraska's Contempt is the best, a few more Fatal Push would also be good.

chox on Hallar , the Fireflethcer

Looks interesting... Maybe your collection is growing and you've yet to have acquired all the cards, but I'd definitely start with playing all the cards with kicker in the colors of Hallar. Consider a saproling sub-theme to stay cost-effective and create more synergy.

Here are some "Remove" suggestions Aesthir GliderGaea's ProtectorAdventurous ImpulseGhitu LavarunnerLlanowar EnvoyLlanowar ScoutMammoth SpiderPrimordial WurmYavimaya SapherdRun Amok

Here are some "Add" suggestions (DEFINITELY start with adding all the kicker and kicker-related cards!!) :Verix BladewingFight with Fire!!Goblin BarrageBloodstone Goblin

It seems like you are working with a budget, so I'll avoid suggesting things like Carnage Tyrant, because I think there are still cheap includes that increase the power/speed of this deck.

You might consider adding these SUPER budget cards. These will be better filler and combo with your +1/+1 counter theme:Arbor ArmamentCultivator's CaravanDurable HandicraftEnter the UnknownGrand Warlord RadhaLifecrafter's GiftMaulfist RevolutionaryNew HorizonsPath of DiscoveryRidgescale Tusker
