Cool deck man! Fish kick ass

One of my favorite U/G spells is Simic Charm. It's versatile

Also Hardened Scales would work with all the evolve you have

The devour of Mycoloth is different in that it is a pre defined number, but if Mycoloth devours 3 creatures with Hardened Scales out you end up with 7 counters (3*2+1) because it's the same interaction.

Small correction: Hardened Scales doesn't trigger, but rather acts as a replacement effect. The answer is still 10 counters, because it's modifying the event of Thromok the Insatiable entering the battlefield (with +1/+1 counters on it) which is a single event.

I think it would be 10 because all the +1/+1 counters are put on at the same time so it can only trigger Hardened Scales once.

More importantly how does the entire devour mechanic interact with cards like Hardened Scales ?

For example: if I have hardened scales in play and I play thromak and devour three creatures, would he enter with 10 counters (3+3+3+1) or with 12 :((3+1)+(3+1)+(3+1))?

Thanks Ghosty, I will have to look into Hardened Scales. My only issue of course would be what to take out.
