Daghatar the Adamant Discussion

Oi! Whatcha think you're doing!? This is my thing ;P

I'd say you stray from the Abzan theme a bit, but meh.

Servant of the Scale is nice here, basically your modular without the artifact limitation while also being Abzan.

Tuskguard Captain goes well with your idea of adding bonuses.

Ivorytusk Fortress if you thought about splashing Abzan's last color.

Dragonscale General can do some nice things for you, such as reloading a Ballista or Triskelion that just fired. Works rather beautifully if you also got a Fortress down.

Daghatar the Adamant can help with counter movement, which is nice with Hardened Scales out.

Mer-Ek Nightblade will tip those Ballista shots in creature poison.

Incremental Growth (Khans of Tarkir version for theme) isn't a bad choice if you think you can get the mana.

Durable Handicraft if you're fine with breaking theme a bit more.

In general, if you're going to use Walking Ballista or Triskelion, you really benefit from more counter movement and placement. A lot of this deck though wants to be independent, with many creatures that beef themselves. Knowing you, I think you'll have more fun spreading effects (first strike, lifelink, trample, flying, reach, and deathtouch are all available off the top of my head) for anyone with a single counter.

I don't know then, your call. But Hardened Scales and Daghatar the Adamant is a hella good combo if you're working on +1/+1 counters

  1. Creatures I'd look into cutting
  2. Civic Wayfinder- there are tons of better ramp options on a stick then this dude
  3. Cliffhaven Vampire- really depends on your life gaining abilities and the consistency of those
  4. Daghatar the Adamant- more valuable in a deck where you plain on making and growing +1/+1 counters
  5. Dragon Hunter- a situational 1 drop, it's alright
  6. Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip- only good in a creature heavy deck.I would wiff on him about 1/5 uses in deck with 26 creatures in a 60 card deck
  7. Emberstrike Duo- I'm just not a fan. it requires spells to be alright
  8. Falkenrath Marauders- it is heavy on the red mana side, and it buffs itself if it can get through. There are better 5 drops in these colors
  9. Foundry Street Denizen How many red creatures do you plan on playing? because his ability only triggers when you cars a red one
  10. Gatekeeper of Malakir triple black to be useful, more than likely a dead drop most games
  11. Gilt-Leaf Winnower once again double black, and how often do you think it's ability will actually work
  12. Graveblade Marauder just not that good of a card
  13. Kargan Dragonlord another easy drop
  14. Nacatl War-Pride your mana base more than likely won't support this guy
  15. Ogre Battledriver double red and one off buff thats alright
  16. Seeker of the Way better in non creature spell heavy decks
  17. Skyrider Elf not legal in this deck
  18. Swordwise Centaur not a good 2 drop in this deck
  19. Thunder-Thrash Elder only good if you eat alot of dudes
  20. Artifacts I'd drop
  21. Godsend i am iffy on this, even in my mono brimaz this card can be hard to play, and isn't good until turn 6
  22. Spear of Heliod the double white might be hard to do. there are better anthem cards.
  23. Whip of Erebos you don't really have a lot of good etb creatures, and the lifelink might only help a little as well
  24. Sorcery's
  25. Feudkiller's Verdict there are better cards then this for a 6 drop
  26. Instant's
  27. Mardu Charm it looks underwhelming
  28. Enchantments
  29. Gratuitous Violence there are cheaper versions of this card

Wow, so many comments! Thanks a lot for the help, frogkill45 and Naksu.

Well, I like the drops you have suggested, but I don't think they are for this deck. Let me explain a bit.

Right now, the new strategy tries to rush creatures with counters, slam the Avatar of the Resolute and kill the opponent if they are not dead by turn 4-5.

By putting 3 or 4-drops, I'm delaying the game to mid-late game, and humans have no power in there, not that I can see at least. That's why cards like Daghatar the Adamant, Citadel Castellan and Eternal Witness do not have place in here (specially the witness, since she needs GG in a deck that splashes green, and we have Den Protector who also gets counters and has an evasion). They are good, but maybe too slow for what I seek.

Tuskguard Captain is another story. She changes the game the moment she enters, and I may even consider her a finisher, since she enables trample without having to attack. Truly valuable.

That being said, it all depends on how it does in the kitchen table :P. So I'll try to playtest and see how it does.

Thanks a lot, guys!

Daghatar the Adamant also synergises with Hardened Scales if you go that way.
