Nice deck. Just a few thoughts, Ajani, the Greathearted seems like it could be a nice fit, providing a lot of counters on a decent board, while also helping your planeswalkers. Not sure how much you’re using it, but for extra redundancy of Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter is another interesting card. Tireless Tracker might be useful, since the clues do offer card draw that I think the deck lacks, plus it can give itself counters when you use the clues. Finally, with all the counters, it seems impossible to overlook Avatar of the Resolute, the card is incredibly strong in a heavy counter deck. I hope this has been helpful.

BRG24 Thanks for the reply! I really like Experiment One and Pelt Collector as they will get bigger as the game goes on, but there are a few reasons why I think Servant of the Scale is better in this list. First, when it dies and gives its counters to another creature, I can actually get free counters if I have a Conclave Mentor or a Hardened Scales out which in a way adds a type of protection to the servant which has worked out quite well in the past. Then, the more potent synergy is allowing for a turn 2 4/3 Avatar of the Resolute, something that neither of those 1 drops allow for. Wildborn Preserver is actually quite a unique recommendation and I haven't considered it before. I added the Garruk's Uprising as a replacement for Abzan Falconer for some closing power, but if I find the deck needs more reach, I think I'll experiment with the preserver. I do definitely like playing at instant speed, so I think I may give this creature a go. As for Heroic Intervention, while it is an amazing card, I feel like Unbreakable Formation does fulfill that role of protection while also doubling as a finisher card which helps to save space in this very tight list.

Nice start but I think you could power this up quite a bit with some swaps. See my version of Modern Evolve SIMIC 101: Fun With Math. Most important to add are:

I also like the combo of including undying creatures Strangleroot Geist and Young Wolf with 4x Pongify and Rapid Hybridization. With the right timing you can get a double evolve trigger by targeting your own undying creature.

Another batch of cuttable creatures, the premise is simple either they don't progress counters plan or are too expensive for what they do: - Conclave Naturalists - Armorcraft Judge - Avatar of the Resolute - Nimbus Swimmer - Skatewing Spy - Tuskguard Captain - Blighted Woodland - AEtherize - Bow of Nylea - Uncage the Menagerie - AEtherspouts - Durable Handicraft - Hunt the Weak - Recross the Paths - Winding Way - Rhonas's Monument

Here's my list I forgot to link in my previous comment: Mono-Green Modern Stompy

I forgot to mention a few things:

  1. Scavenging Ooze has really good synergy with Avatar of the Resolute.
  2. Feed the Clan out of the SB is huge vs Burn. 10 point swing almost guaranteed. I run 2, but 3 is arguable.
  3. Damping Sphere helps slow down this deck's problem...unfair decks (Tron, Storm, etc...). Let's be real. I don't play this in competitive formats as it would go 0-5 at any FNM.

If you'r play Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and you want devotion to green Burning-Tree Emissary is pretty good. Maybe play Rancor to give trample. Strangleroot Geist has undying. I feel like Voyaging Satyr is too slow so maybe less of him. Avatar of the Resolute is good. If you'r playing Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for devotion put a play set of it in other wise I would play Treetop Village in its place.

Hello there!

For better use of Avatar of the Resolute you could really change the play set of Kalonian Tusker for a set of Barkhide Troll, which is a stronger creature in itself (possibility of hexproof) and helps your counters plan.

Great deck man, keep it up!

Obstinate Baloth is a sideboard card against discard decks. Gearhulk I would avoid. Obliterator is strong but requires a deck to be heavily built around him so i’d avoid.

My suggestion would be to worry less about the heavy hitters and go more for those value-gains. If you’re going down the Winding Constrictor and/or Hardened Scales route (which seems strong), then you probably just want lots of lower-costing creatures that can become monsters in their own right.

Scavenging Ooze nets you a big creature, life, and grave disruption

Tireless Tracker gives you cards while he gets swole (you’ll want loads of fetches though)

Rishkar, Peema Renegade gives you counters, and enough flexible mana to abuse stuff like Collected Company, if you wanted.

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar might be useful as a 2-of, giving you a lot of power when followed up by Avatar of the Resolute (though i think the above-mentioned options are better than this one)

As Xica has already mentioned, your point-of-difference over hardened scales decks is your colouration in black - where you want to be running hand disruption and killspells. Outside of that, you should be looking for fast, efficient killers that can thrive in such a resource-deprived boardstate. Don’t try investing in high-cmc cards to do this if you can avoid it.
