I like this. very golgari. Mine eventually shifted focus away from G/B and ultimately it's a BUG deck. The counters are just too fun! I don't know if you'll end up changing this deck or not but I'd like to see how it evolves. Remember that mine was once very similar to this one. But check out the newer version Nature Itself.
I love this play. Counters are my favorite and I used to use Essence Harvest for the win back with Innistrad. I also would put in Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord for the alternative sacrifice/life loss. He could be in this deck, but definitely isn't necessary, secondly, Bioshift is a great card, if they were to target kill one of your hydras you just move all the counters over to another hydra and if you have Corpsejack Menace on the field just double the amount of counters you move over!
Final thought, if you are actually playing this and want to build a sideboard, put in Whip of Erebos . If you lose a Kalonian Hydra and then bring it back in, attack, double all the counters, gain a gazillion life, and then it's exiled. For 4 mana. Always worth it.
I do not believe I am allowed to use Bioshift due to the inclusion of the half green symbol
Just a thought, Bioshift could be useful, but perhaps not as useful as some others in here already. double Heroic trigger, could surprise an opponent with an unassuming little guy, and move over all the counters from a big one to make an unexpected killing blow. Maybe save a creature by giving him the extra counters. Most likely used for re-allocating counters onto a more important creature, like Sage of Hours.
Plus, you could take away the discard theme and switch to +1 counters pretty easily. I love Corpsejack Menace because hes so broken. Then you could benefit from Bioshift and Solidarity of Heroes , or even things like Undying Evil and just overwhelm your opponent with super cheap +1 ramp.
Does Bant have the card filtering available to make a 3 card combo viable in Modern? Obviously protecting it is another story...you'll want to somehow not die along the way too.
I liked this combo, but it seems unreliable.
Bant Soul Sisters with Bioshift and Ajani's Pridemate ? That way when the pridemate gets killed you can move the counters onto the Fathom Mage ? Soul Sisters have good synergy with Archangel of Thune , blue for control...sounds janky to me. Might as well throw + in too.
You could run Pod to tie things together?
