With the spoiling of Renata, Called to the Hunt , I can say with certainty that this card will replace Ivy Lane Denizen . Effectively it’s a counter source with the same cmc, but it doesn’t limit the effect to only green creatures. Being able to combo with Puppeteer Clique adds more combo synergy to the deck and unlocks those few combo lines that were lost on Ivy-Lane.

I found that he's pretty good at filtering to creatures like Devoted Druid and Ivy Lane Denizen but he lacks the ability to snag enchantments; namely, Presence of Gond . If I was ever online at a decent hour I'd hop into discord :( I'm hoping green gets some more goodies from theros

cleandeceit: Both great suggestions! Thanks, that's relatively rare haha :D What cuts would you recommend?
Profet93: Spidersilk Armor does combo with Yawgmoth and Hapatra. If I start with two tokens, I sacrifice one to put a counter on the other and make a new one. With the toughness boost, the diminished one doesn't die, so I can sacrifice the one that currently has a -1 counter to put a counter on the new creature. Rinse and repeat -- this works with any static toughness boost, and is generally the same idea as how Ivy Lane Denizen goes infinite with it.

Thanks for the posting. I didn't know about Skyshroud Poacher until now and that is an awesome find for a Marwyn player.
I have a couple suggestions for you - I think the untap effects are great, but the instant and enchantment versions of this are not as strong as creature based versions. Pulling one of those to make room for Quirion Ranger would be worth trying. Pulling the rest of them or other non-elf cards of your choice for Ivy Lane Denizen , Generous Patron , and Rishkar, Peema Renegade I would also suggest as those 3 cards are some of the most potent elf ball effects Marwyn has - at least in my experience.
Great deck, have fun, and happy holidays!

OptimalGreen: Yes, the issue here is Profet93's 100% Coffers-centric deck in my meta. Frequently I literally can't play Urborg without losing the game immediately, so out it goes. In an average meta, I would still run Urborg.
WarSpaniel: I hope that Profet93's answer was in enough detail for you :) The only thing to add is that executing this loop causes you to draw absurd numbers of cards (often twenty or more), but costs 1 life per -1 counter placed and card drawn. To not run out of life, it's important to draw until you find Zulaport Cutthroat or Obelisk Spider (or a way to find them) so you can gain one life each time, which allows you to not lose the game by life loss.
The other problem is that you can't do this infinitely. You can only keep going as long as you have creatures to put -1 counters on. But if you have Nest of Scarabs or Ivy Lane Denizen , this isn't a problem. Nest makes it so that with each creature you sacrifice, you make TWO tokens, so you can sacrifice an Insect to place a -1 counter on a Snake and repeat forever. With Ivy Lane Denizen, because the Snakes are green, you get to play a +1 counter each time you place a -1 counter, so you can place them on your own creatures and never go down in toughness. I hope that helps!
OptimalGreen: Profet is not me XD I've been super busy, though, and Profet plays against this deck IRL a lot, so he knows how it works. Still, we have different opinions on certain card additions, etc.
