Durable Handicraft Discussion
1 week ago
I'd highly suggest adding in Cultivate, etc. for ramp; Inspiring Call for card draw and protection; Armorcraft Judge for card draw; Bristling Hydra nice body and makes a +1/+1 counter; Fairgrounds Trumpeter could get big easily; Retreat to Kazandu +1/+1 counters just for playing lands; Durable Handicraft for more +1/+1 counter generation; Abzan Battle Priest, Abzan Falconer, Ainok Bond-Kin, Tuskguard Captain, and Longshot Squad for great keywords; Regna, the Redeemer because you have a bunch of life-gain effects for her to make an army all on her own; and ways to close out the game like Overwhelming Stampede, etc.
As for a few cuts: Danitha Capashen, Paragon does very little work with only 6 relevant spells; Resolute Archangel is expensive for her effect and has no synergy with +1/+1 counters; Surrak, the Hunt Caller I do not see haste for one creature being a huge deal, this seems to be a more slow build-up strategy; and cut it down to 36 lands plus ~10 sources of ramp (that is what I do at least).
Fun looking budget build, good job!

I would recommend more cards that add +1/+1 counters, like Enter the Unknown, Ancient Animus, Kujar Seedsculptor, Scrounging Bandar, Metallic Mimic, Durable Handicraft, New Horizons, Animation Module, Fabrication Module, Path of Discovery, Savage Stomp, Hunt the Weak, Lifecrafter's Gift, and Strength of the Pack.

Looks interesting... Maybe your collection is growing and you've yet to have acquired all the cards, but I'd definitely start with playing all the cards with kicker in the colors of Hallar. Consider a saproling sub-theme to stay cost-effective and create more synergy.
It seems like you are working with a budget, so I'll avoid suggesting things like Carnage Tyrant, because I think there are still cheap includes that increase the power/speed of this deck.
You might consider adding these SUPER budget cards. These will be better filler and combo with your +1/+1 counter theme:Arbor ArmamentCultivator's CaravanDurable HandicraftEnter the UnknownGrand Warlord RadhaLifecrafter's GiftMaulfist RevolutionaryNew HorizonsPath of DiscoveryRidgescale Tusker

TheRedGoat: Well, I was hoping to avoid any infinite combos entirely, as my playgroup is not as experienced as me at building decks, and they usually have a greater budget constraint. I wanted a deck I could play that was fun and competitive, but also gave my pod a chance to win. I know it sounds strange, but it was my mission.
Now, your suggestions:
Retribution of the Ancients was a card that I knew existed but overlooked. It will be finding its way in the deck. A suggestion on what to drop for it?
Durable Handicraft was actually a card I built a standard deck around back in Kaladesh standard. I cannot believe that I forgot to put it in here!
Thanks for your time!

You have said you're playing an aggro build, but are you wanting to utilize any infinite combos or avoid those entirely? Does your meta feel the same way?
In any case I feel that Retribution of the Ancients and Durable Handicraft seem like solid cards regardless of what you or your opponents do. Though whether you're wanting to bother with a token route is also a consideration.

-4 scrounging bandar, -4 pouncing cheetah, -4 call to unity, -2 durable handycraft, -4 abascade, divine verdict, oath of ajani, growing rites of itlamoc (-21)
So with Dominaria getting released in less than a week cards I'd consider are Adventurous Impulse, Llanowar Elves and maybe even a couple Memorial to Unity. Elves lets you play your spells a turn early and the others make it a lot harder to get screwed on mana while letting you dig for your tribal bombs.
I'm assuming you don't have more Longtusk Cubs because with Ixalan, when you say you last updated the deck, being when energy was the entire meta they might have been a little pricy. They are a penny a piece now so I'd suggest picking up a couple over Pouncing Cheetah or Scrounging Bandar.
Also I'd run more lands. At least 23.
Durable Handicraft, Call for Unity and Oath of Ajani arn't viable in standard atm. You're sacrificing tempo to force through damage late game. Most well tuned control or mid-range decks could easy stabilize before you start to do anything really aggressive, aggro will keep those cards dead in your hand and combo will have you dead on turn 4. Not to mention that anything leaning on removal only needs to one for one your creatures and render your random do nothing enchantments useless without even having to directly answer them. Your best strategy with this type of deck is to either bite hard and not let go or play cards like Vanquisher's Banner or Lifecrafter's Bestiary and draw so many cards your opponent runs out of removal.
