Not entirely true, Unbreathing Horde's ability will still remove a counter from it, it just won't prevent the damage. This can be relevant if the Unbreathing Horde is just 1 toughness greater than Malignus' power, as it will result in them trading.

The scenario: Malignus comes into play with a greater Power/Toughness to Unbreathing Hordes counters-boosted Power/Toughness.They eventually end up squaring off: Who wins? Does UH simply drop a counter and live to fight another turn, or does Malignus take it out?

So I'm a believer that the best way to build this deck is through playing big dudes with no butt for dirt cheap! So cards like Ball Lightning, Cosmic Larva, Blistering Firecat, Phyrexian Dreadnought, and Nova Chaser (fyi you can respond to Nova Chaser and Dreadnought's ability on the stack and sack them into Brion). Malignus is also great and I think a STAPLE in this deck. Other than that...
- Scuttling Doom Engine: All value, all day
- Soul's Fire: You basically get an extra fling
- Sneak Attack: Great way to cheat big stuff out and fling it.
- Flameshadow Conjuring: Get an extra creature to fling/attack with everytime you cast a creature
- Bearer of the Heavens + Faith's Reward : Your friend's won't like you for this combo, because no lands or anything and you are the only one with creatures but... it's effective.
- Thornbite Staff: This I believe is a must.
- Lifeline: I didn't even know this card existed until helping my friend build his deck, it's literally one of the most broken cards I've ever read.
- Gisela, Blade of Goldnight: Duh.
Oh and this may be obvious, but in this deck always swing your creatures before you sac them into Brion! You never know what your opponent will do but at least you will force them to react, and then be able to react accordingly.

Hey! I saw your list on the FB group. Here is some feedback...
Since you a running green, you do not need mana rocks, rather, you need just get out your lands faster. Rocks can be destroyed, lands usually arent. As such, I suggest you remove the following...
Fork in the Road - There is much better ramp
Ground Assault - Much better removal
Slagstorm - See above
Sylvan Scrying - Gets you any land card, but since you don't run specialty lands like Cradle or Eye of Ugin, its best to replace this with better ramp
Blanchwood Armor - better in a mono green deck, also auras have the 2-1 issue (try to place aura on creature, they doomblade in response).
Vessel of Nascency - Weak card
Vessel of Volatility - Weak, nonrepeatable ramp
Pit Fight - Better versions of this card exist
Cards to put in Show
Cultivate - better ramp
Decimate - really good removal
Hull Breach - see above
Explosive Vegetation - better ramp
Kodama's Reach - see above
Nissa's Pilgrimage - see above
Rishkar's Expertise - Card draw and free stuff is cool
Skyshroud Claim - better ramp
Traverse the Outlands - Have a 6/6, Xenagos makes it 12/12, cast this, get 12 lands. Seems good.
Beast Within - PERMANENT REMOVAL IN GREEN!!!
Song of the Dryads - see above! (extra points if used on their commander)
Garruk, Primal Hunter - His -3 is like a Soul's majesty (similar to Rishkars expertise)
Greater Good - Card draw is always great
Malignus - Used to one shot an opponent with your commander
Tyrant's Familiar - speaks for itself
Thunderfoot Baloth - Trample is key!
I can give you more suggestions if you like. I see your deck is budget so feel free to ignore the more costly cards and put them in an acquireboard for trades/purchase later on.

Rite of Replication has finally made it in after alot of testing.
Atm it's going in over Craterhoof Behemoth but hoofta might find it's way back in at a later date. It sat in hand alot and even with Tooth and Nail / Defense of the Heart getting it and a clone it didn't seal the game as much as my usual Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Spellskite grab

Thanks for the advise, personally I don't like the risk of Timesifter but I can see why I would run it. I have been eyeing Malignus for a bit and honestly have no clue why I haven't added it yet. Blood Mist I will definately end up using. As for the protection cards I haven't really thought about it. But may consider it as when I first built this I wanted to give people a chance to come back but as I have been playing I have become more sadistic and like the idea of completely overwhelming people. Thank you!

There are a few cards that could could be cut for something more effective or less costly.
For example, I would cut Berserkers Onslaught for Blood Mist, Krosan Cloudscraper for Malignus and Wild Evocation for Timesifter and stuff like Eldrazi Conscription and Storage Matrix for protection like Heroic Intervention. Even for Xenagod, you have an extremely high cmc.
