Reverent Hunter Discussion

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.


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: . 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.

This looks like the start of a green devotion deck, so maybe you could try out these cards Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Arbor Colossus, Kalonian Tusker, Leatherback Baloth, Reverent Hunter, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Karametra's Acolyte, and Aspect of Hydra.

If you just want to focus on dropping big stuff this combo may interest you as well Allosaurus Rider and Eldritch Evolution.

Another hydra you could be using is the Managorger Hydra. It's a that gets bigger anytime a spell is cast. It gets out of hand super quick, especially when put together with Hardened Scales and Winding Constrictor. Also you could be using Basilisk Collar, or Bow of Nylea for deathtouch and the bow does other nifty stuff too. Reverent Hunter is a cheap quick monster after you get some devotion built up.Fog, Titanic Growth or Blossoming Defense should be in your sideboard. My last suggestion, is to playtest your deck with Nissa, Voice of Zendikar get a token off first plus, then sack Nissa in the next two turns to make your monsters bigger.

Meine erste Idee war es einfach ein gruenes devotion Deck zu machen. Leatherback Baloth hat drei gruene devotion und ist selbst schon ziemlich heftig. Noch besser wird er wenn du ihn in der zweiten Runde schon spielst. Dafr brauchst du nur ein paar mehr Manadorks, also vielleicht 4x Elvish Mystic, 4x Llanowar Elves oder Arbor Elf. Manadork in der ersten Runde bedeutet drei Mana in der zweiten Runde. Damit kann man neben dem Balot noch so einiges anderes interessantes machen:

Damit hast du dann nicht nur ein ziemlich starkes Board, sondern auch eine Menge devotion fuer mehr Mana aka. Karametra's Acolyte oder Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, wenn du die teuren Hydras spielen willst. Oder du nutzt die devotion aggressiv mit Reverent Hunter oder Aspect of Hydra.

Ansonsten empfehle ich dir, das ganze in ein Commander Deck zu basteln. Viel manaramp und dicke Kreaturen oder eben die ganzen Hydras mit [X] in den Kosten. Auerdem kannst du dann immer mit uns spielen und wir brauchen dringen noch Abwechslung in unserer Commander Gruppe :P

Als Commander empfehle ich dafr Rishkar, Peema Renegade oder Omnath, Locus of Mana

I run a very similar deck and I think that you should make the following changes:

-4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - this card is great when you have a lot of devotion, but you dont need it in your deck as you will always play out your hand really fast with the top end at 4 mana and wont need the extra mana that you gain from this card. Its also an awkward draw when you need to always hit green mana turn 1, 2 and 3.

Replace With:

+2 Treetop Village - the best manland in green and is very useful target for a rancor which acts like a pump spell as it will return to hand when it changes back into a land.

+2 Forest - to get back to 20 lands

-2 Reverent Hunter - this can actually be killed before you get the counters with something like Lightning Bolt or Electrolyze

Replace with:

+2 Birds of Paradise - This creature is often hit with Path to Exile which grants you an extra land, its better to have creatures in your deck than lands and this is one way to have both.

You may want to consider these cards too:

Scavenging Ooze, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Eternal Witness, Predator Ooze, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Thrun, the Last Troll
