Daghatar the Adamant Discussion

It's rough not having white. Daghatar the Adamant would be a killer in this. Feat of Resistance fizzles removal and Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is a good finisher.

But not as good as the end-all-be-all of +1 counter finishers: give it up for...

Kalonian Hydraaa!!

Good point.

Daghatar the Adamant won't matter though. It can only move counters from creature to creature.

Also, just in case it ever matters, Merrow Commerce will get +1/+1 counters if you use Kumena's third ability, but since it's not a creature, they will largely be irrelevant, but should be tracked just in case your opponents play a Thief of Blood, Daghatar the Adamant, Opalescence or some other similar card.

I had a hate bears +1/+1 counter deck headed by Daghatar the Adamant for a bit so here are my thoughts:

Green's competitive edge is ramping yet you are not playing a single ramp spell. Why? While your curve is nice not using this advantage only makes this weaker.

Is Deadbridge Goliath a pet card? Otherwise he is pretty bad. A vanilla creature w an obscene scavenge cost is win less and more simultaneously. I would re-examine your creature choices and prune the less optimal ones. Instead focus on giving more +1/+1 counters like Durable Handicraft, Citadel Siege, and Retreat to Kazandu.

Surprised to not see more outlast guys like Abzan Falconer, etc.

In general I think you are too focused on creatures. As suggested prune and add more ramp, interaction and card advantage for better balance. For CA Shamanic Revelation, Elemental Bond, Phyrexian Arena, Armorcraft Judge, Inspiring Call, etc. are options.

Hope something helps!

man, that means so much to me. i worked so hard and spent countless hours building it without any help, tediously going through so many cards and for you to say that, and to see where im coming from. seriously its priceless. Its so nice to hear. also, thank you so much for listing some cards to look into. i have only one copy of Parallel Livesthat i was planning on using in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck. and as for Primal Vigor that is in my Daghatar the Adamant deck. i only have so many copies,i need to get more because seriously thats some good advice. Explorer's Scope was in here for awhile until i picked up the Sword of the Animist and i only have so much room for equipment. its always hard trying to figure out what cards to pull. if you have a chance to look at some of my other decks,i really appreciate your advice. thanks again, man.

In response to your Card Creation comment, I was talking about the original Khans from Fate Reforged, not the newer ones from Dragons.

As in, Daghatar the Adamant, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, and Yasova Dragonclaw.

Denver23 on Daghatar, +1/+1 counters

Redace878, in my opinion, Daghatar the Adamant is more flexible than Anafenza, the Foremost and the duo, he can use extra mana to generate counters with cards like Corpsejack Menace, Hardened Scales etc. This also affects cards like Enduring Scalelord.

SteelSentry, Ghave, Guru of Spores isn't supposed to be the commander. I view him more of as a combo piece to generate counters on my creatures with Cathars' Crusade and to make my creatures unblock-able with Champion of Lambholt. By payying 1 and 1, i can create a token and sacrifice a token to actaully increase counters on some creatures if i have cards like Corpsejack Menace and Hardened Scales out. Also if one of my creatures is about to die or be exiled i can use Ghave's ability to save some of the counters by turning them into tokens

DemonDragonJ on Ideas for an Atraxa Deck

I am planning to build an EDH deck with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the general, and I know that she is an immensely popular EDH general, but I still wish to make a deck with her, because angels are one of my favorite creature types in this game and Phyrexia is one of my favorite factions in this game.

The idea that I have for my deck will, naturally, be to use Atraxas ability to place additional counters on my permanents: specifically, +1/+1 counters on my creatures and loyalty counters on my planeswalkers.

First, for other proliferation cards beyond Atraxa, I am planning to use Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine , Fuel for the Cause , Inexorable Tide, Spread the Sickness , Steady Progress , Thrummingbird , and Viral Drake; I will not use Volt Charge, because my deck will not support the color red, Core Prowler , because it simply is too weak, and neither Plaguemaw Beast nor Throne of Geth , because my deck will not be generating large quantities to tokens to sacrifice to the abilities of those permanents. I am currently uncertain about Grim Affliction and Tezzeret's Gambit, so I shall await feedback from other users here regarding those cards.

Second, I will need a method for placing +1/+1 counters on my creatures initially, before I can multiply them, so I am planning to use the following cards to achieve that goal: Archangel of Thune, Ghave, Guru of Spores , Daghatar the Adamant , Kalonian Hydra, Forgotten Ancient, and Echoes of the Kin Tree . If anyone has any suggestions for further cards, I will greatly appreciate them.

Third, for planeswalkers, I will be seeking to use planesawalkers with powerful ultimate abilities, preferably those that grant emblems, and some of the planeswalkers whom I am considering are Tamiyo, Field Researcher , Ajani Steadfast, Ajani Unyielding, Narset Transcendent , Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Elspeth Tirel, and at least one version of Sorin. It is not a high priority, but I would like to ensure that all colors are represented equally, or nearly equally, among planeswalkers in my deck.

Fourth, I have a number of wild cards, cards that do not contribute to the overall theme of the deck but are still very nice to use. Thus far, every EDH deck of mine has both a Gilded Lotus and a Thran Dynamo, but, with a deck that uses the proliferate mechanic, perhaps I could use Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice in their places, since I will be able to increase the number of counters on them. I believe that every green EDH should contain a Seedborn Muse, so mine shall, as well, especially because she will work well with contagion clasp and contagion engine. I have a Mirari's Wake and Privileged Position in each of my green/white EDH decks and a True Conviction in every white deck, so this one shall, as well. Would Lux Cannon work in this deck? I am considering it, but wish for feedback before I actually purchase it. Also, a deck such as this should definitely have Doubling Season, but that card is currently very expensive, so I shall need to wait either for it to be reprinted or for me to have a great amount of surplus money to spend.

What does everyone else say about this? What ideas can you offer me for an EDH deck centered around Atraxa?
