I think you could do worse than Kiora, the Crashing Wave and Kiora, Master of the Depths... also ashiok isn't really doing anything for you... Vraska the Unseen on the other hand would be a great adittion... all I need is the money to get her and both kioras and they're going in :)

I would cut probably the guidlmage, Endless One and either the Chain Veil or Triumph of the Hordes . The chain veil is win more and triumph i would keep only if you are going for creatures and +1/+1 counters. The more you go in the super friends direction the less powerful it becomes...

Delta-117 on Super Friends Commander/EDH

Hey there as promised earlier, here are my suggestions. I will suggest what to take out and possible replacements for each.

(Take out these)Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Kiora, Master of the Depths,Mystic Barrier, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Dictate of Karametra, Jace, the Living Guildpact, Creeping Renaissance, Garruk Relentless, Praetor's Counsel, Spreading Plague, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Primal Surge, Citadel Siege, Jace, Memory Adept.

Also in terms of lands remove: Elfhame Palace, Orzhov Guildgate, Selesnya Guildgate, Tranquil Expanse, Golgari Rot Farm, Selesnya Sanctuary, Azorius Chancery. I could suggest a lot more like Thornwood Falls among others but I feel your wanting to keep the land base fairly budget still correct?

Now let me suggest some replacements...

Cyclonic Rift, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Supreme Verdict, Anguished Unmaking, Sphere of Safety, Norn's Annex, No Mercy, Sol Ring, Astral Cornucopia, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Spike Weaver, Exploration / Burgeoning, Venser, the Sojourner, Merciless Eviction, Skyshroud Claim, Mana Reflection, Rhystic Study, Sylvan Library, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, Forbidden Orchard, Mana Confluence, Murmuring Bosk, Path to Exile, Swan Song, Disallow, Catastrophe, Mystical Tutor, and Demonic Tutor.

I better cut this to an end here, as I still got to look at your other decklists. But if you are wondering about any of my suggestions here / and or what to add if any from among my suggestions then just let me know!

Sarkhan_Dragonclaw348 on Vorel and his Merry Counters

I also suggest Altered Ego as a strict upgrade on Clever Impersonator, unless you're using the Impersonator to copy noncreature permanents.

Look at your legality section. Lumbering Falls and Kiora, Master of the Depths are both illegal, apparently.

I don't know how much success you're having with Undergrowth Champion, but I never liked it very much. Just personally, I would suggest dropping it.

Somehow, you're not running Master Biomancer. Do it.

Spike Weaver and Spike Tiller both enter with counters and transfer a counter for 2. The Weaver has a fog effect and the Tiller makes 2/2s, so that's also nice.

Instead of Lighthouse Chronologist, use Sage of Hours. My personal suggestion; I see you've already considered him, though.

Two enchantments I like: Bred for the Hunt and Curse of Predation. They give you counters for attacking and dealing combat damage to a player respectively.

Sapphire Drake gives everything flying. That's always a good thing in mainly green decks.

Instead of Woodland Bellower, Genesis Hydra. Much more flavor in this deck.

You've got mostly green, so Reverent Hunter would make a good choice.

If you have tokens or lots of creatures often, play Stag Beetle.

Vastwood Hydra gives away its counters even when it dies, as does Servant of the Scale.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood makes for a good land for boosting your creatures, as do graft lands.

Minamo, School at Water's Edge lets you untap Vorel.

Gutter Grime creates increasingly large slimes. Ew.

Fog.

Garruk Wildspeaker is a useful endgame planeswalker.

Everflowing Chalice for ramp.

For adding +1/+1 counters at instant speed, Strength of the Tajuru.

Often, you can check Auto-suggestions for cards this deck could use. I used that to bolster my advice. (Bolster is another nice +1/+1 counters ability, btw.) I also used my Vorel deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/when-you-have-too-many-counters-blame-vorel/ . It has a card-draw subtheme, but most of the cards are related to this.

A couple other deck ideas:- Atraxa, Praetors' Voice covers so much more ground with +1/+1 counters--you can play Abzan/Dromoka cards, Golgari cards, even the Orzhov Syndicate has powerful spells with counters. And those are just tribes/guilds.- Partner commanders. If Sultai is workable, use Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for a sacrifice-card draw theme. I have a deck based on that.

For the short time it has left in standard, you might try Kiora, Master of the Depths. It's a pretty inexpensive planeswalker that has a couple of cool abilities. I would say it's underrated, but, as you note, U/G doesn't have a strong supporting cast, per se.

Good luck!

sylvannos on Superfriends help

I've been playing this for a while:


Mono-Green Superfriends

SCORE: 9 | 14 COMMENTS | 4114 VIEWS | IN 8 FOLDERS


(yes, I'm also shamelessly plugging my own deck)

I'd skip out on Doubling Season entirely and just go for Thragtusk. While getting to ultimate stuff right away is awesome, it's generally win-more when it comes to Modern.

If you land a 4+ mana planeswalker (especially if it's Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker or Karn Liberated), you won't need Doubling Season because large planeswalkers are enough to close out the game. Even worse for your opponent if you play multiple planeswalkers or cast Genesis Wave.

If you don't go with Genesis Wave, you can play multiples of the important planeswalkers. I've found these are the more important ones to have:

Brownkid09 on Bant Flying Islands

Nice deck idea. I built something like this a few weeks ago, it has since then been changed and ultimately retired. Not sure how I felt about the deck as it would get torn up by most control based decks. (Go figure, midrange always loses against control). Did better against agro shells and creature based decks. Link to the deck list is posted below.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/land-banter/

Originally, the deck was a bant fog shell with great creature curve. Haze of Pollen and Encircling Fissure held the opponents at bay while you waited to build up your board state. Planar Outburst was used as a board wipe just in case opponent were running zombies or creature heavy decks and the plus side was that your land creatures were left alone.

Using Wall of Resurgence to put counters on Cascading Cataracts for a 3/3 indestructible creature who could eventually have flying thanks to Halimar Tidecaller seemed pretty good. The extra graveyard recursion thanks to the tidecaller, made Coastal Discovery and other awaken cards that much better. Sylvan Advocate is a great lord if Fatal Push or other cheap removal isn't running around and Eldrazi Displacer was great with resurgence. Slam down a Verdurous Gearhulk and throw the counters on your creature lands made for a great board state /finisher.

For planswalkers, I threw in Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Kiora, Master of the Depths for the extra control. Not sure if these were even a right fit for the deck, but they worked sometimes. Not sure if this helps, but I did like this deck archetype a lot.

The issue I had with the deck was that if Cascading Cataracts was removed or bounced, you were that much further behind. Not sure what else can be done to improve this deck. But +1 for sure!
