Predatory Hunger Discussion

Optimator on Bastards on Parade

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:

Ramp:

Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.

Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route

Utility:

Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,

Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.

Counters:

Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.

Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

I have a Drove of Elves I'm not using

Hi NV_1980,

Thank you for your comment. Predatory Hunger is one card i will put in the deck. Seems really strong with Hallar. For Lightning Greaves i did not put it in on purpose because of the shroud. I have other protection spells also with kicker instead of. I do not want to have a situation where i put a lot of +1+1 counters on Hallar but cannot do because of shroud. Also my creature number is a little to low to have always another creature on the board.

But thank you for your suggestions.

Hi,

Good deck. Maybe Predatory Hunger could be nice in this deck. The Vivien-series planeswalkers are great at giving Hallar some additional +1/+1 counters. We would also recommend Lightning Greaves for some extra protection for Hallar.

Regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

I think that Ethereal Armor and Predatory Hunger could be fine, and Consulate Crackdown is a very good removal for artifacts that can be excellent if you have some artifact-based decks in your playgroup.

Just randomly found Forced Adaptation and Predatory Hunger which are also cool.

ZypherW on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave

This deck looks pretty good. Similar to my own Vultron-ish Skullbriar deck.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is another hasty +1 counter creature that has built-in protection.

Suspicious Bookcase , Canopy Cover , and Prowler's Helm are other ways to get Skullbriar and friends through enemy defenses.

Nim Deathmantle , Journey to Eternity  Flip, Supernatural Stamina , Stitch Together and Unearth are great graveyard recursions (especially because Skullbriar keeps counters even in the graveyard).

Eternal Thirst , Feast on the Fallen and Predatory Hunger might be good +1 counter editions depending on your group's meta.

If you can afford it, Doubling Season doesn't help your opponents like Primal Vigor does and it has the same effect.

Vraska, Regal Gorgon might have a bit higher CMC, but I think fits your deck a little more than your current Vraska.

Assassin's Trophy , Windgrace's Judgment and Beast Within are good removal spells in Golgari colors.

Withstand Death , Rush of Vitality , Heroic Intervention and Destined / Lead are good protection cards

Finally, Sword of Vengeance , Pelt Collector , Lightning Greaves , and Alpha Authority are just overall good cards that you might find helpful in your deck.

Oookay ... cracks fingers

In a +1/+1 counter deck, you really want creatures with persist. They almost never die for good in this environment. Creatures with undying are normally less ideal, but with Zameck Guildmage, you can immediately use that spare +1/+1 counter on the returned creature to draw a card. You could play those instead of bad draw spells like Counsel of the Soratami or Divination. Amass the Components is ... meh.

And I can't take a +1/+1 counter deck without Ivy Lane Denizen and Viridian Joiner (which I like to call "pauper Gyre Sage") seriously. Like, at all. So put them in. ;)

Good cards for that deck (I'd say better than sth like Awaken the Bear or Larger than Life) would also be Ferocity and Predatory Hunger, maybe Primal Cocoon too.

Let's come to the landbase: Unknown Shores are bad and you don't need bad fixing in a two-color deck (and even if you needed the fixing, I'd run Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade first before considering sth like the Shores). Do you know Opal Palace and Path of Ancestry ? I'd recommend playing 36 lands total as well.

I hope this was of some help to you.

Always keep it Simic!
