Ridgescale Tusker Discussion

There's a lot of changes which need to be made. First drop all the Primordial Wurms, switch them for Pelakka Wurm or more Aggressive Mammoth, not having trample on a six drop is so important. Also you need more land you should play at least 23 forest in a deck like this. Ditch Bitterbow Sharpshooters, Ridgescale Tusker, Wall of Vines and Wild Wanderer. There are much better drops at that slot. Take a look at some of the other mono green list in here and see what they are playing, they usually have budget alternatives to some more expensive cards, Vine Mare is a good example of this.

Heya! I like the deck idea overall, Temur is a great color combination, and Animar can be really explosive and fun.
You already have some cards here that have +1/+1 counter synergy - I would say go all out with this prong of your strategy.
Hardened Scales doubles the speed with which Animar builds counters, and helps all the other +1/+1 counter triggers get better.
Ridgescale Tusker enables your board by putting a +1/+1 on everything but himself, and accelerates Animar futher.
Shaman of the Great Hunt might be good for some mid-game card draw, and helps spread the +1/+1 counters around.
Creatures with Kickers and X in their CMC are also great choices, because they can really benefit from how big Animar's reduction can get. Some ideas are Grunn, the Lonely King, Altered Ego, Fungal Behemoth, and Verdeloth the Ancient.
Okay, one for the lulz as well. Big time synergy with Animar's Protection from Black coming from Singe. Problematic blocker in your way? NOT ANYMORE! Singe makes them Black until end of turn, so Animar can swing through for the win. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHhhhhh...

Hi really like your list really good for the money! for the main deck Greenbelt Rampager and Ridgescale Tusker could be good option I'm not a big fan of Implement of Ferocity I know it's sometime good but you can't afford the loss of tempo. For 2 mana this deck can do a lot. also Duress is in most case more usefull then Divest especially that you have 4 Putrefy if I were you i'll go more into the agro side of this deck dropping Walk the Plank for Blossoming Defense and maybe dropping 1 Duress and 1 Putrefy for 2 Attune with Aether if you feel you need a LOT of aditional card draw Lifecrafter's Bestiary
for the sideboard 2-3 Heroic Intervention. I know it's 5$ but against board wipe you have almost no hope to win. 3-4 Natural State are always a good sideboard option 1 Yahenni's Expertise is a little akward sometime but if all your creature are 4/4 it's a game changer Lost Legacy could be usefull for the rest you could put your copy of Divest

Looks interesting... Maybe your collection is growing and you've yet to have acquired all the cards, but I'd definitely start with playing all the cards with kicker in the colors of Hallar. Consider a saproling sub-theme to stay cost-effective and create more synergy.
It seems like you are working with a budget, so I'll avoid suggesting things like Carnage Tyrant, because I think there are still cheap includes that increase the power/speed of this deck.
You might consider adding these SUPER budget cards. These will be better filler and combo with your +1/+1 counter theme:Arbor ArmamentCultivator's CaravanDurable HandicraftEnter the UnknownGrand Warlord RadhaLifecrafter's GiftMaulfist RevolutionaryNew HorizonsPath of DiscoveryRidgescale Tusker

Hexaflexagon, thanks for the upvote.
When Dominaria hits Standard this deck will change a lot. I won't just add 4x Llanowar Elves and call it done :) The three drop spot for Elves is going to be loaded with Steel Leaf Champion, Marwyn, the Nurturer and Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Llanowar Elves lets me potentially play any of these three drop Elves turn two which is far and away better than anything that Narnam Renegade can do.
I consider Narnam and Ajani's Comrade the flex spots right now, they're most likely going to be cut for new cards. You're right Deathtouch is nice to have and it's possible that I will play both Llanowar and Narnam depending on how the meta turns out, but 4x Llanowar is a for sure addition. More one drops are good with Marwyn. Narnam may even be a sideboard card for some matchups.
Ridgescale Tusker is the same CMC as Verdurous Gearhulk and Gearhulk is a much better card. Tusker is a fine budget replacement for Gearhulk. Tendershoot Dryad is also the same CMC as Gearhulk and it's very slow compared to Gearhulk. It can be good if it sticks around a few turns and I'm also trying to achieve ascend with Radiant Destiny which is a reason to play Tendershoot. The problem is it's not better than Gearhulk. Gearhulk gives me potentially game winning counters value the turn I play it.
I can only afford to play copies of one five drop because I'm focusing on tribal Elves in this deck and both Tusker and Tendershoot are not better cards than Gearhulk. The main strategy here is +1/+1 counters and Gearhulk is one of the best enablers for counters.
I see a fun Abzan tribal Fungus, Saproling and Radiant Destiny deck start to take shape with new cards in Dominaria. Tendershoot could be the high end card for a deck like this.

Honestly, if this is a slow deck, I'd prefer Narnarm Renegade over Llanowar Elves because the deathtouch will keep your opponent's creatures at bay.
Regardless, have you tried either Ridgescale Tusker or Tendershoot Dryad? Even though this is an elves deck, I think Tendershoot Dryad is a great addition to any deck, flooding the board with creatures and triggering Ascend.

whitebunny Here's a copy of your decklist with the edits I recommended, was able to get it much closer to 60 cards but I do see what you were trying to do with the "Beef Your Own Creatures" since I ended up getting a lot of board states with a bunch of wimpy 1/1 tokens. I would consider dropping Decimator Beetle for more copies of Ridgescale Tusker. By the time the Beetle can come down, you should already have a nice collection of 1/1 tokens without needing the Beetle's ability.
