Coiling Oracle and Lorescale Coatl are both pretty good commander staples, and net experiance counters. Myr Battlesphere nets you a decent body, and 4 experiance counters when he comes in.

Hardened Scales is always a good card for anything +1/+1 counters.

Forgotten Ancient is like a sudo Managorger Hydra, that can move counters around.

Prime Speaker Zegana gets you cards an a large body to work with.

Cara, tirando as criaturas acho que s o Night Dealings que talvez esteja fraco no deck. Se fosse tu colocava o Duelist's Heritage e o Forgotten Ancient no lugar dele e do barquinho, se tu no for mais usar :p

RoboticPlayer on Deck Builder says cards illegal?

I have this deck that I made, but the site says that the cards Diviner Spirit, Forgotten Ancient, and Giant Tortoise are illegal. But according to WotC's list, none of them are banned. Anyone know why they are marked as illegal on this site?

Agethangelos on Counting counters while countering counters...?

I love the idea of Doubling Season because its harder to get rid of than a creature, but Corpsejack Menace effectively does the same thing with a 4/4 body behind it for one less mana. ALTHOUGH if i were playing G/W tokens and counters then i would drop the cash for it lol. But Forgotten Ancient seems sick tasty for multiplayer! Indeed it is indeed it does...

also Forgotten Ancient is pretty sick if you do multiplayer games.

Forgotten Ancient, Chasm Skulker, and Ooze Flux for creatures. First strike might be good to stave off attacks with your commander with like Moonsilver Spear, maybe something like Phyresis, infect can be a game ender if you can get 10 in. Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is good for that. Gift of Immortality can be a good way to maintain a board state as well.
