you should consider Savage Surge and/or Burst of Strength to strengthen your defensive options

Rhox rocks!

An idea for Blue Rhox: UG has some nice +1/+1 counter theme. Using something around Thrummingbird, Steady Progress,Bioshift, Cloudfin Raptor, Strangleroot Geist, Hardened Scales, Battlegrowth, Bond Beetle, Burst of Strength, ...

Put a bunch of +1/+1 counters on your Rhox, get more counters, attack, win.

Agree completely. That card would be insane for your deck. Also maybe look into cards that benefit with/from +1/+1 counters. Bioshift can help by moving counters from a creature that is about to be destroyed, or move them to a creature that isn't blocked. Burst of Strength could be useful to untap any 1 of your creatures to block that your opponent didn't expect. Mutant's Prey can help get rid of an opponent's creature, being that simic colors don't do but so much to actually destroy a creature. Gyre Sage could be there to seriously ramp. Sage of Hours could be an incredible amount of extra turns. Also other cards that give creatures trample if they have a +1/+1 counter on it, ect. Sorry to keep recommending so many cards. Also just found this deck "Ezuridiculousness," (sorry it wouldn't let me tag it). Check it out if you need inspiration. It's very well put together.

Blessings of Nature?

Burst of Strength? Works well with Gyre Sage.

Forced Adaptation?

Give / Take?

Quest for Renewal?

I know these aren't the best cards, but I feel they could help a lot if used correctly, although I would understand their exclusion.

I also feel that Enlarge, Aspect of Hydra, and or Mortal's Resolve would be fun. Might of Oaks might be better for this deck than Enlarge though. Berserk would be hilarious but a playset is >$100. Insist is a cantrip with a nice effect, allowing you to push out creatures against control decks. Umbral Mantle and Burst of Strength would be great finishers. Predatory Rampage might also be a good alternative to Roar of Challenge. Lastly, you only have basic lands in this deck. Consider adding Llanowar Reborn and/or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood.

No, you cannot do that as described.

Every time before a player would receive priority to cast a spell or activate an ability, state-based actions are checked. One of things these SBAs check is if creatures have insufficient toughness. Those are immediately put into the graveyard. Only after that do you receive priority to cast Burst of Strength.

Still a great card to use with Varolz, the Scar-Striped, giving you 8 counters at the cost of 3 mana.

If I castForce of Savagery, and once it resolves put a +1/+1 counter on it at instant speed with let's say Burst of Strength, would it survive?

Once it hits the battlefield with zero toughness is it automatically put into the graveyard with no way of saving it unless something like Gaea's Anthem is already on the battlefield?
