Avatar of the Resolute

Creature — Avatar

Reach, trample

Avatar of the Resolute enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it for each other creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it.

Correct, this card is strictly better in this deck than Kalonian Tusker . Was hoping for a second Avatar of the Resolute but a marginal upgrade is still an upgrade

These are your best creatures: Evolution Sage, Hexdrinker, Huatli's Raptor, Managorger Hydra, Mistcutter Hydra, Tuskguard Captain. I suggest you increase most of those creatures to a full set (4x each) and cut the rest.

Other creatures worth considering: Grateful Apparition , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Marwyn, the Nurturer , and Vinelasher Kudzu - (only with Harvest Season ), Incubation Druid , Predator Ooze .

You currently have 69 cards included. That number should be reduced to 60. I suggest cutting all the Instants, Sorceries, and Enchantments except Pledge of Unity. If after all the cutting there is room left over, I've outlined a number of spells that will add dynamism and range both with the creatures above and with other spells below.

I believe good lands are more important than Planeswalkers. Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood are perhaps valuable enough to consider. Sunpetal Grove , Canopy Vista , Temple of Plenty , Fortified Village , Temple Garden , Windswept Heath are all worth considering, depending on your budget. Swapping out your slow lands for those listed above will improve both speed and reliability.

Other mainboard possibilities: Song of Freyalise , Bow of Nylea , Harvest Season , Beast Within , Generous Gift , Seal Away , Oblivion Ring , Journey to Nowhere , Blessed Alliance .

I completely support Inspiring Call and Avatar of the Resolute as well as Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter . The only other Planeswalker I consider worth including would be Nissa, Voice of Zendikar .

My thoughts on +1/+1 counters decks: Hardened Scales is overkill, over-rated, and slow. It's a very powerful card that doesn't necessarily speed decks to a win. The best +1/+1 counter decks include only low CMC creatures that can repeatedly provide their own counters. Creatures, especially any that get really big, will get removed pretty consistently. So getting lots of creatures down and swinging quickly and consistently is essential. This is all, of course, just my 2 cents.

I'll point out that there are enough creatures and spells that it's very possible to build solid mono-white or mono-green +1/+1 creature decks. I actually think it's easier to build a solid deck staying mono-colored - it's possible to go mono-color tribal with Humans, Soldiers, Elves, Allies, Oozes etc. The advantage to going tribal is more than just synergy - it's also a handy framework to round out a deck with advantages while also keeping the deck focused. Going tribal also opens the door to Cavern of Souls and Unclaimed Territory . I'd go so far as to say there are so many really solid +1/+1 counter spells, one of the hardest things about building a deck is narrowing it down to a well-honed point. I'm not saying I think you need to go mono-colored and/or tribal here, just pointing out ways to help focus the deck.

on of the best cards you can have is Hardened Scales , works great wiht +1+1 and proliferate. you could also try Avatar of the Resolute for two mana he can be a huge threat. Inspiring Call also can be great to get some card advantage along with some protection.

I am glad to hear, to be frank i havent played very much except against my friends, but i am planning to go to the local tavern this autumn in style of green might.

To keep it short though if you would like a clearer answer:

-Try creature for creature, non-creature for non-creature when sideboarding.

-mix around with the 1drop slot

-mix around with the non-creature slots

-mix around with the 3drop slot (i forgot to mention that Leatherback Baloth coild be changed for Groundbreaker and/or Dungrove Elder in some surroundings.

The most staple creatures are: 4x Avatar of the Resolute 4-6x any "evolve" 1 drop 3-4x Steel Leaf Champion 4x Strangleroot Geist 3-4x Aspect of Hydra

Outside of that i encourage you to experiment!

Hey, sorry for the late response. Just wanted to say thanks so much for responding to my earlier message! It was a huge help to me in teaching me the thought processes of what to sideboard, and I can’t even describe how much I appreciate the help.

As a side note, I’d just like to mention that Dryad Militant is, like, really sneaky good against Dredge. It keeps them off of Conflagrate , which means they’re forced into using creatures to beat down. And yours are just bigger. Also, I might be reading it wrong (and I haven’t played a match against Dredge yet, so I have no firsthand experience in this matchup), but doesn’t Dryad Militant also keep them off of Creeping Chill ? It seems like they rely on that card so much to race so it seems superb.

Finally, what are your thoughts on running two extra one-drops instead of two Kalonian Tusker ? I realize that this might not be a question you can answer, because your deck seems really tightly tuned to deal with your own meta. It’s just that my build runs 2 Scavenging Ooze in the main, and Kalonian Tusker has easily been the worst card in the games I’ve played. I feel like two copies of Experiment One would be better for Avatar of the Resolute . If you can offer any insight, I’d be happy to hear it!

Honestly, I'm seriously considering it. The thing is that Kalonian Tusker is the worst card in the deck right now anyways, and I don't think trading the point of toughness for trample is really gonna help it. What this deck needs is another Avatar of the Resolute -level card, something busted that also has the two green pips.

Thanks for the suggestion, though! I will absolutely continue to test with both; it's not like either is expensive at all.

Bring the bat to the beating

I really like your deck cascadien. I love the inclusion of Woodripper and Vorel. Looking at your maybe-board, Avatar of the Resolute , Vulturous Zombie and Grim Affliction are cards I'd maybe include on your mainboard.

Cheers! For my deck, I'm aiming to be a group hug/slug deck with Xantcha. Trying to upgrade it while staying under the 120$ line.
