Creature — Elf Artificer
When Armorcraft Judge enters the battlefield, draw a card for each creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it.
Armorcraft Judge Discussion
1 week ago
PS: Inspiring Call , Lifecrafter's Gift , Armorcraft Judge , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Song of Freyalise . I think going wide and getting out of board-clear range (ie: 3-5 toughness) is your best bet, rather than going big on one creature and getting it picked off. So some token generators might also be handy.

My suggestions for cuts are plentiful. However, Kresh the Bloodbraided comes to mind immediately. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would be good, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is great, Rockslide Elemental is similar to Kresh, Taurean Mauler is another Managorger, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Malakir Cullblade, with even more similarities to Kresh, may fit well with your flavor. Curse of Stalked Prey could help, alongside Curse of Predation, some mana rocks would do you good, Apocalypse Hydra, and many other hydras would be decent finishers, Kalonian Hydra takes the cake though. Armorcraft Judge is nice, along with Inspiring Call, Pelt Collector and Experiment One, Champion of Lambholt, maybe Heroes' Bane, Ravenous Slime, Rubblebelt Raiders, Deus of Calamity, Scute Mob, Sporeback Troll, Tuskguard Captain, Vinelasher Kudzu, Soul's Majesty, Falkenrath Exterminator, and Stromkirk Noble?
So that's a few suggestions. Want me to propose cuts as well?

Okay so just going through my list here, I can split it into a couple lists: counter producers, counter enhancers, and counter synergies.
Counter producers give +1/+1 counters to things. Among them are Anafenza, the Foremost, Bloodtracker, Chasm Skulker, Daghatar the Adamant, Dragonscale General, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Hangarback Walker, Heroes' Bane, Managorger Hydra, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Prime Speaker Zegana, Toothy, Imaginary Friend Citadel Siege, Curse of Predation, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants, Cathars' Crusade, Echoes of the Kin Tree, and finally, arguably the best of this group, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes.
Counter enhancers increase the counters placed on things: Gilder Bairn, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Winding Constrictor, Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Primal Vigor, and Solidarity of Heroes.
Boy oh boy do I hope that's enough to get ya started. There you go.

So the think that jumps out at me is there's 1 thing that can draw cards. This is an issue. A commander deck usually needs about 7-17 things that can draw cards, or you'll run out of hand and be left hoping to topdeck whatever you need at the moment. There are plenty of cards that work overtime, fitting the +1/+1 counter theme and drawing cards at the same time: - Fathom Mage - Bred for the Hunt - Armorcraft Judge - Bloodtracker - Implement of Ferocity - Inspiring Call - Lorescale Coatl, if you want to lean further into this whole draw thing - Mindless Automaton - Novijen Sages - Prime Speaker Zegana - Toothy, Imaginary Friend
These are all suggestions. I don't know what your budget or meta is. Good luck with the deck.

I like this deck. I need to revisit my Ghave deck, I Ghave Until It Hurts, and I see some nice ideas here that I may try.
Anafenza, the Foremost could serve as an alternate commander against decks that rely on their graveyards.
Armorcraft Judge could let one go deep for a win condition.
Tendershoot Dryad makes going wide with saprolings so much more effective.
I could go on. Good stuff here. A lot that could help my A Token of Our Affection deck, for that matter.

Contagion Clasp , Armorcraft Judge , Cultivator of Blades , Cytoplast Root-Kin , Feral Hydra , Forgotten Ancient , Genesis Hydra , Heroes' Bane , Renegade Krasis , Ridgescale Tusker , Increasing Savagery , Overwhelming Stampede , Animation Module , Contagion Clasp , Ring of Kalonia , Inspiring Call , Magistrate's Scepter all could be good.

Nice deck, I love the Cavern of Souls...if i played tournaments i'd buy in rl.
In mine, i saw that synergy with heritage druid with nettle and paradox engine made the win condition way faster. Your deck, however has more protection than mine does though.
Am also looking at Marwyn and Armorcraft Judge as it would synergize with warcaller.

Ok, so I replaced Armorcraft Judge with Inspiring Call. It serves mostly the same purpose, but is 1 mana cheaper (yay) and doesn't give you a 3/3 creature (nah, it doesn't actually change much in this deck). I also replaced Cloudfin Raptor (an ok counter generator thanks to Simic Guildmage) with Hardened Scales.
Avatar of the Resolute is nice, but I wouldn't replace anything other with this card.
Servant of the Scale IMO doesn't really fit into this deck. If cast before Master Biomancer it doesn't do much, and otherwise I generally don't want my creatures buffed with 4 or so +1/+1 tokens to die.
Added two general "perfect scenarios"
