Dromoka's Command Discussion
9 hours ago
Loving your deck, and I love the Glittering Wish idea even more, sounds like a sweet deck with the inclusiomn of cards like Collected Company, I think you could also be a bit greedy and swap some of the creatures that you where using to control the board and use them as a beatdown strategy, basically change Reflector Mage and Lyev Skyknight for stuff like Rhox War Monk, Woolly Thoctar, Dauntless Escort, Jenara, Asura of War, Kitchen Finks...
Now, the deck gets fun when using Glittering Wish, it makes your sideboard very flexible, you can run a lot of stuff that makes sure your deck continues to beatdown uninterrupted, I'd personally think about Naya Charm, Bant Charm, Ojutai's Command, Detention Sphere, Izzet Staticaster, Dromoka's Command, Wear / Tear, Fracturing Gust, Firespout

Note that replacement effects do not trigger or use the stack, rather they simply apply to an event and replace it. When Dromoka's Command resolves and tries to put a +1/+1 counter on the creature, Hardened Scales sees this and replaces that event with placing 2 of those counters instead.

There are 2 separate effects giving your creature a +1/+1 counter: that from Dromoka's Command, and from the Heroic trigger itself.
Hardened Scales applies to each individual effect that puts a counter on your creature, so it will end up with 4 counters in total.

Let's say I have a Hardened Scales and a Favored Hoplite on the battlefield. Then, let's say I play Dromoka's Command and give my creature a +1/+1 counter and whatever else, will my creatue get 3 total counters? Or 4? Or some other number of counters? I know it is at least 3 :P

Removal across the board is always good. Try Beast Within or Bane of Progress. But removal (creature based) is also just good to have regardless for dealing with commanders. Also stuff like Dromoka's Command could even be worth it.

It is 3 mana to buff 2 creatures and just isn't impactful enough a spell. Dromoka's Command would be better. Another lord effect would be better like Metallic Mimic. An anthem effect would be better like Always Watching .

Here are some cards that go well with Hardened Scales in Modern:
Winding Constrictor if you wanted to add black

Hey! I really like this list. A few random suggestions -
Eerie Interlude - the anti-sweeper that also makes your allies bigger. Insane value for 3 mana whether you're ducking a sweeper or just making your allies huge before going all-in. Can be put either in main deck or sideboard depending on what you feel like.
I'd also suggest running more Hardened Scales if counters are going to be a focus or if you're not running Aether Vial. If you don't want to run 4 of them, at least run 3. It's not bad if you get more than 1 - each additional scales gives you more counters. With 2 scales out your 1/1 blademaster enters as a 4/4, etc. It's also ridiculous when paired with Metallic Mimic.
Blessed Alliance seems like it might be more of a sideboard option - it could be switched around with Dromoka's Command depending on what you like. Now that I think about it, they're quite interchangeable depending on the matchup or meta but I would still give the edge to Dromoka's Command because you can force 2-for-1s very easily, it protects you from damage sweepers like Anger of the Gods, and it completely messes up burn (killing Eidolon of the Great Revel and simultaneously eating a burn spell - yes please) which would otherwise be an extremely difficult matchup. Allies have very few answers to burn outside of Ondu Cleric which will almost always die immediately. Leyline of Sanctity is the only other one I can think of.
I'm also going to second Captain's Claws. I didn't believe in this card until I tried it, but it's essentially a 3-mana Gideon, Ally of Zendikar that doesn't die if they kill your creature. It (usually) sticks around longer than Gideon and gives you free triggers every turn so long as you attack with just one creature. I'm not saying don't run Gideon - I run both in my decks - but claws is also quite powerful.
This is an awesome deck! Sorry for the long rambly comment, but I love allies and it makes me excited whenever I see other people playing them. Good luck and have fun!
