Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control. Then that creature fights target creature you don't control. (Each deals damage equal to its power to the other.)

Hunt the Weak Discussion

hullos and kamarupa, I love the suggestions.

This is the first deck I ever built dating back to the 2015 prerelease. It's evolved a ton since then, clearly, with all the cards from later sets in it. That's kinda why the cards are so seemingly random. I haven't purchased cards for this deck yet. Everything I have was either pulled or traded for.

There's currently 69 cards because to be honest, I really struggle with deciding what to remove to meet 60 cards. I feel like they are all pretty good and serve a distinct purpose in the deck.

I definitely want those lands. I don't really like Fertile Thicket either. Probably remove the Selesnya Guildgate s because they're too slow too, huh? I like Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , Sunpetal Grove , and Temple of Plenty . I love the combo of Canopy Vista + Windswept Heath , but that seems like a lot of money for land, although I might justify it if I could see it's worth. What are the most important things I'm looking for when choosing land?

The Wanderer , Suspension Field , Wanderer's Strike , Hunt the Weak , and Prison Realm all help with protecting from creatures that I otherwise wouldn't be able to deal with, and Dragonscale Boon and Stony Strength surprise my opponent when they're attacking or try to mess with tapped creatures. What I really need are a couple cards that exile permanents rather than creatures, though. I have a couple of Generous Gift s in another deck that I could pull out and put into here.

I could see cutting The Wanderer , Retreat to Kazandu , New Horizons , and a lot of the kind of piddly creatures that are just there to get beefed or beef others.

If I cut The Wanderer , all instants, sorceries, and enchantments and dropped down to 24 creatures, I could have space for 8 cards if I kept 23 lands. What do you think the best would be the best 8 cards to have? Right now I'm thinking: 2x Generous Gift , Bow of Nylea , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , 2x Blessed Alliance , Oblivion Ring , maybe Hardened Scales (how bad is it really if you play it first turn, considering all I would have to play other than that would be a hexdrinker, and it benefits massively from it if I can beef him before he gets protection from everything?) or Harvest Season ? (but that wouldn't that only be good with some landfall stuff or Vinelasher Kudzu , like you had said?)

Would that provide me with enough board removal to be consistently successful?

I've noticed a fair bit of graveyard interaction but I don't see a lot of recursion effects. Since bears are typically small, I think it would help to add more anthem effects such as Vanquisher's Banner & Coat of Arms . I think Rhonas's Monument is a must in this deck because it acts as a mana cost reduction and a pump as well. The deck seems a little light on removal interaction, although you are in mono-green, there are some decent interaction with +1/+1 synergy like Mutant's Prey or Hunt the Weak . To facilitate that +1/+1 synergy, maybe adding Path of Discovery as well. There is a lot of ramp in this deck, which in theory is good, but your also in mono-green. I might recommend removing some to make way for the previous suggestions. Nature's Claim is a must and perhaps some additional card draw like Rishkar's Expertise would help.

Hello fellow Skullbriar player,

I like your deck-list a lot! I like how you are running Triumph of the Hordes . I never really thought of going that direction for a win. You’re also running a lot more creatures which is cool to see!

The “Umbras” are also key. I think I’m running Snake and Spider Umbra and no Bear Umbra .

Skullbriar for me, is the perfect deck to throw a bunch of combat trick stuff and janky pumps/unblockables like: Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Hot Soup , Prowler's Helm , Epic Proportions , Gigantomancer , Emergent Growth , Berserk , Hatred , Hunt the Weak , Trailblazer's Boots , Burst of Strength , Might of Oaks and Enlarge (so hilarious to pull-off). Here is my Skullbriar brew

A few of what I mentioned like Hatred I'm not actually running due to budget but hope to eventually have in the deck one day. Dauthi Embrace is another really good idea for unblockable too.

Hope some of that helps!

Nuubi on If I play a sorcery ...

For instance I play Hunt the Weak on a creature that has trample. We’ll say I have a 5/5 and my opponent a 3/3 that I have selected to “fight”. When it deals damage would the power exceeding the toughness carry over as normal with trample? Or for instance my opponent has we’ll say a 3/4 with double strike and I control a 5/5. I select his 3/4 as the target. Does the opponents creature get double strike in this interaction or just it’s base power?

If I used Hunt the Weak on a creature in my main phase, would this cause my creature to tap, Therefore making it unavailable to attack or is this a separate interaction not causing my creature to tap?

Neat, good synergies at work here. Only thing I can suggest is maybe look into some more general-use cards (you've already got a few in here, capitalize on that). Perhaps some creature-fighting options like Hunt the Weak or Pounce to give yourself a couple of outs against linchpins in an opponent's defenses. Seems like this deck just needs to get counters on creatures as fast as possible. Thrive is a must too in my opinion.

Savage Stomp is strictly better then Hunt the Weak. :)

AkaAkuma on +1 for you, +1 for you....

To start off: Hardened Scales, Bear Umbra and Ordeal of Nylea. You do allot with just one counter, make use of it! And bear umbra or ordeal of nylea not only means counters but also a free extra Jenara abilities each turn.

Then we have allot of +1/+1 synergy in this deck, but allot of them are single use or difficult to get.
