Delta-117 on Muldrotha.. oh wait, counters?

5 days ago

Primal Surge perhaps? Also regardless if you care or not about a graveyard theme, I think these cards are good on their own but even better with Muldrotha:Whiptongue Hydra, Constant Mists,Mishra's Bauble, and Executioner's Capsule.

But all around good cards for your counter theme would be Kalonian Hydra, Herald of Secret Streams, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Novijen, Heart of Progress, and Hungering Hydra.

I like that you chose a different take on Muldrotha, in fact a +1/+1 counters deck was my first edh deck 3 years ago starting with Vorel of the Hull Clade, but then came along Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it should go without saying that I obviously changed up the deck.

Progenitor Mimic? Clone type effects provide massive amounts of counters on creatures like Master Biomancer, Kalonian Hydra etc.

Cytoplast Manipulator, Kalonian Hydra and Renegade Krasis fit this strategy very well and are on the inexpensive side.

You're welcome! Since I have a bunch of time in the car, I'll offer some more suggestions lol. Nissa, Worldwaker seems better than Nissa Revane and Garruk Wildspeaker seems better than the one you're running (ramp and overrun ability are great in your deck), but both are good since Garruk, Primal Hunter draws cards. I'd include both Garruks. Aether Vial seems unnecessary for the deck to me since you have a bunch of ramp. Craterhoof Behemoth is a must have!! Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds seem really weird to me since you're mono green, but I'm an edh noob so maybe there's a good reason. Maybe a Kalonian Hydra or Primordial Hydra for fun? Seems better than Rampaging Baloths to me. Hope this helps. Like I said, I'm not a very experienced Commander player so take everything I say with a grain of salt if youre experienced.

Neotrup on Doubling Season and Kalonian Hydra

Using the Kalonian Hydra as an example, it has 4 counters so it triggers to double those. This means it puts on an additional 4 counters to bring it up to 8. Doubling Season sees this attempt to put 4 counters on and doubles that, making it 8 counters you're adding instead. This means the Hydra ends up with 12 counters.

It triples it. Kalonian Hydra's ability puts as many counters on each of your creatures as they have on them. Doubling Season doubles the amount of counters put on.

If a player controls both a Doubling Season and a Kalonian Hydra, and then attacks with the hydra, will the hydra's ability quadruple the number of +1/+1 counters on all creatures that that player controls?

Monomanamaniac on Green +1 Counter

Forced Adaptation would look good with this, as well as Gyre Sage and Kalonian Hydra. There's room for bigger glory with Doubling Season or the like. If you're willing to splash black there's Corpsejack Menace. Other than that Renegade Krasis is a nice touch. There's a few others but they're not as memorable, Mycoloth among them
