Gilder Bairn Discussion

Beautiful! I have a weakness for bird people.
Although not amazing in itself, Karn's Bastion can put you counters over lethal from time to time. It’s bailed me out a few times.
Since you’re playing doubling season, you may consider playing both Tamiyo Planeswalkers, as their ultimates, combined, are nearly impossible to overcome, and individually, are brutal. If you do, look at Rewind.
I love this deck. It’s explosive.

Experience counters also work with proliferate etc.

Was thinking to definitely remove Satyr Grovedancer. I think you are right about Jugan, the Rising Star as well. I would even consider removing Polukranos, World Eater as well. If I get constant counters, any creature should pretty much be fairly beefy. The Whispersilk Cloak was more for Gilder Bairn so I would have a way to untap it and use the ability or for an end game. No real intention of playing it on any creature I wanted targeted. However, Hardened Scales seems way more useful in the long run. Replacing one of each basic land is an easy sub. I like the plan right now and will work on updating this deck later today. Then I'll empty my acquire board after the order. Hopefully this deck makes me well hated on game night once it is completed.

Thanks for the reply psionictemplar, Yeah I'm also kinda all over the place with how I want to update this deck. I've made a private copy of this deck I use to save cards in the "Maybeboard" that I think might fit the theme, but it's a mess and I didn't want to distract people with it. But, I've un-private it so if you see any cards that might also help you in your deck I'm happy to help -- Your Opponents Don't Need Turns, Right? (alt) -- Also There's an infinite mana combo with Vigean Graftmage + Incubation Druid that can feed into Gilder Bairn + the Paradise Mantle you suggested, maybe I'll splash red for Rhythm of the Wild for haste plus making more of the deck uncounterable. Using Planeswalker's Ultimate the same turn they come out would be awesome for this deck, as I want it to be an over-the-top deck (as in, it's still 'mostly' competitive but still fun to play when it loses a match-up). Thanks for your feedback :)

Saw your reply and got to thinking about this a little more. So here's my random, all over the place thoughts.
Omniscience came to mind for the maybeboard...not sure how well you could get to the 3x blue to cast it easily though.
I don't know why but the Gilder Bairn in your maybeboard strikes me as having potential. What I am thinking would be some repeated way of tapping and untapping it with loads of mana available to keep adding loyalty counters to the planeswalkers you are wanting to add/already have. The big issue would be getting the mana to untap it repeatedly and being able to tap it constantly.
Here's what I am thinking in to fix that problem. Paradise Mantle (pet card) to tap it for mana and Nyxbloom Ancient to make it 3 to pay for the untap effect all at once. Keep doing that and you could put unlimited loyalty counters on the walkers and ultimate them the turn they come out.
Another card I considered was Incubation Druid but you'd want to find a way to cheat the adapt cost on it. The graft mechanic came to mind but you'd still have to wait a turn to tap it (obviously). Ironshell Beetle maybe? Or there's Vivien, Arkbow Ranger Like I said at the beginning, all random ideas. I do like that you are open to big changes in the deck.
Last couple things for this post... I think you could use a couple more lands and under your turn 3 directions you wrote over when you probably meant other...just a hunch though.

If you make the deck heavy on creatures, artifacts, and utility land based, you could run Arbiter of the Ideal along with Aura of Dominion to play the top of your deck for 1 mana. There is also Beguiler of Wills to add onto the fun tap effects. If you use Gilder Bairn with planeswalkers, and Paradise Mantle and Biomancer's Familiar you can get infinite loyalty counters, of course you can simply make up for the lack of paradise mantle and such with derevi's ability to help accelerate till you get them as win cons.
