Daghatar the Adamant Discussion

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

Vaeladar on United We Stand: Selesnyan Humans (w/ Counters)

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.

First thing I would recommend is adding more lands. 33 is not much for an edh deck. From what I've seen most decks run 38-42 lands along with about 6-11 pieces of ramp. this is especially important in a four color deck. would defiently add in the rest of the signets along with possibly a Fellwar Stone

some cards off the top of my head that might warrant some consideration would be...

Hardened Scales: Increases the number of counters that get placed on a creature when they move

Prime Speaker Zegana: DRAW! All THE DRAW!

Daghatar the Adamant: Another way to move counters around.

Abzan Charm just good value. removal, Draw, counters all on one card.

Avatar of the Resolute: bet this guy would get pretty big.

Managorger Hydra and Chasm Skulker: Speaking of big I can imagine these two getting beefy pretty fast.

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit: good for adding lots of counters to lots of creatures.

High Sentinels of Arashin: gets a buff off of creatures with counters on them also generates another way to grant your creatures counters.

Decree of Pain: Can not recommend this board wipe enough.

Plaxcaster Frogling: makes it so the only person allowed to touch your things is you. (plus its a frog doing the Kamahamaha whats not to love?)

some some of these ideas help!

I agree with Quicksilver! She is definitely a fun card. I also am a fan of +1/1 counters, this deck seems like a lot of fun! I am working on a Daghatar the Adamant deck, and minus the white, our decks seem fairly similar. I had not seen Atraxa yet, but she makes me happy as well. Her, and I am a pretty big fan of Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, this is the first time I have laid eyes on him as well. Well done!

ElspethOfValeron on Alesha, Who Smiles at Death EDH

You can't play Daghatar the Adamant. It includes a green mana symbol in its rules text, while Alesha is Mardu in colour identity.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is probably a better option than Disciple of Griselbrand, unless you really don't think you can reliably get WB.

Also, just so you know, abilities that trigger on attack don't trigger with creatures that Alesha brings in. They're brought in attacking, while attack triggers go off when a creature is declared as an attacker. You might already know that, but I figured I'd mention it in case you didn't.
