TheRedGoat: Thanks for the thoughts/suggestions! The only pieces that care about -1 counters being on the creature when they die are Necroskitter and Blowfly Infestation - the former may get cut, and the latter mostly sticks stuff on my own creatures (so it's not a problem really). The deck mostly cares about the -1 placement itself :)

And regarding your suggestions - Plaguemaw Beast is interesting, but I'm not super convinced that it's worth the 5 mana and waiting for summoning sickness to wear off... Poison-Tip Archer isn't really worth the 4 mana to me, though I could see it fitting into my sideboard for the additional usefulness of having reach (this deck struggles with fliers). Driven / Despair is actually something I want to fit back into the deck when I find space for it (it may replace Necroskitter)! Rishkar, Peema Renegade just seems like a less good version of Cryptolith Rite here, another card I'm trying to fit in (too few slots, bleh). Quillspike recently got cut because he was too fragile, dies from a single counter, and is only really useful with Devoted Druid. Flourishing Defenses is just too much mana for its effect, unfortunately. Harbinger of Night just got cut - he was just too slow and tended to cause problems. Blight Sickle is not efficient enough, in my opinion (I'd rather run Glistening Oil, ANOTHER possible inclusion), and while Hex Parasite is cute against opposing PWs and maybe could find a home in the sideboard, he doesn't advance my game plan enough to put him in the main deck.

Thank you again for the suggestions! :)

So I have a question: How well does this deck interact with +1/+1 counters being placed on creatures? Or having -1/-1 counters removed before the creatures die?

Also, a lists of cards that could be useful (unknown if you already knew about these or play tested them)(would still want to hear your thoughts on them within a deck):

Plaguemaw Beast (sac-a-snake, make-a-nest)

Poison-Tip Archer (redundant win-con is redundant)

Driven Despair (aggro?)

Rishkar, Peema Renegade (any counter counts)

Quillspike (known combo piece)

Flourishing Defenses (see "aggro?")

Harbinger of Night (recommend pair with Melira, Sylvok Outcast )

Blight Sickle (once again, aggro?)

Hex Parasite (political tool)

Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice works how you think it does. You know of you had Mycosynth Lattice in play Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice and a plainswaker you can copy the plainswaker ability with Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice because the walkers an artifact now. You could do the same with Liquid Metal Coating...

Also with Plaguemaw Beast in play and Thornbite Staff and any good token generators like Elspeth, Sun's Champion you can proliferate the shit out of your walkers...

Also also if your walkers are artifacts from liquid metal coating you can animate your planeswalkers with Karn, Silver Golem then equip them with Helm of the Host to create a non legendary token copy of your Walker as though it has not been activated yet... bug that's if you're trying to live the dream

(JSYK, I had a minor Blackout so I couldn't respond earlier. Sorry... :/)

@griffstick: I appreciate your suggestions about this, but I was asking about what cuts I should do to get to 100? Oh, & I'll add Contagion Engine & Inexorable Tide. Even though both things are considered "Win-More" to many. I already have quite some engine anyway; although you are still, regardless, tempting me into that Plaguemaw Beast... XP

BTW, just looked up Smh. Either you're right about a mass Discard deck w/ Tibalt running either Olivia, Mobilized for War, or Malfegor, & I'm as Ambitious as I already know; moreso even now, or the fact I'm running would mean something regarding the 4 words; all Keywords. Well, I'm sorry about such a notion, but there probably is worse out there anyway; Hint: Eldrazi Displacer + Riftsweeper. & the deck isn't even .

But I digress.

This means I have 3 to add, but I added the following anyway:

Djeru, With Eyes Open

Thalia's Lancers

Ajani Vengeant

Ral, Caller of Storms

Angrath, the Flame-Chained

Dovin Baan

Liliana, the Necromancer

Garruk Wildspeaker

Jace, the Living Guildpact

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

Samut, the Tested

Tezzeret, Artifice Master

& some permanent that can also copy Activated Abilities (Since Rowan Kenrith is getting the red light despite Ensnaring Bridge, Meekstone, & even Dueling Grounds...)

(wait...)

Would Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice apply? I could activate his ability to copy Rings of Brighthearth to add an additional activation. Does this work that way? If so, I have 4 cards in addition to cut. What walkers should I cut? I guess Dovin Baan has negligible abilities... So, which to cut to 100? & thanks, griffstick. I'll use at least 3 of what you suggested... :D

I like the deck but it seems like you're missing out by not running cards with Proliferate, especially considering how many of your creatures use spore counters. Helpful additions here could be Contagion Clasp/Contagion Engine, Plaguemaw Beast or Spread the Sickness. Vanquisher's Banner might help you keep up some explosive turns in combination with both Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. Also seems like a lot of land when you look at your curve, perhaps you can free up some space there?

Really torn between finding room for a Vigor, a Plaguemaw Beast or just leaving it as-is.
