Buddy of mine played Ghave all the time and it was always a threat, so good commander choice! +1

Your explanation for a lot of pieces is very deep and thorough so I get it if some of these suggestions I give you don’t make your version of the deck.

I’d think Forgotten Ancient is an auto-include. People play spells, he gets big with counters and then you even have the option of moving them onto Ghave or another creature on the board. A good counter-engine if you will.

Opal Palace is a dope budget land and a rather great pump spell late game while at the same time providing mana of your commander’s colors if you’re having trouble in certain scenarios. There’s also Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood for other land choices.

There is Armorcraft Judge and Parting Thoughts of you need some help with draw.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade is another version of your planeswalker you already have. Not sure if you’d want another?

And last but not least, you can always run more Dictate of Erebos with something like Grave Pact but I dont know if you are on a budget or not. I personally like running both enchantments in any of my sacrifice decks, but maybe not everyone does!

Hope some of that helps! And again, awesome list!

@Aceh I completely forgot about Jiang and unfortunately did not pull him! I think if I'll need a second Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Jiang will be my man, thanks!

But even with the mana fixing perk I think Jiang is slightly underperforming to Rishkar however. Thanks for the heads up!

Pir, Imaginative Rascal is another option to add counters. Rishkar, Peema Renegade will turn any creature with a counter on it into a mana dork, ramping you well. Fertilid becomes very nice if you can keep adding counters to it, basically allowing you to Rampant Growth every turn. Spike Feeder and Spike Weaver are also great. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great mana sink for a 1/1 counter deck like this. Champion of Lambholt is another solid creature to consider in this setup.

I think I'd cut Abzan Ascendancy and Cached Defenses . You'll have plenty of bolstering opportunities on creatures and whatnot, so I'd consider another removal option or card draw option instead. Cut three lands, too.

I encourage you to get more card draw and ramp. Zendikar Resurgent provides both, and is fairly budget. Mirari's Wake is nice, but pricier. Shamanic Revelation , Rishkar's Expertise , and Beast Whisperer are all nice card draw options. You should run about 10 if you can. Some good options in include Greed , Vampiric Rites , and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.

Yeah, I'm going to need to fit Neoform in. You can grab Neoform with Spellseeker and then sac the Spellseeker for Ancestral Statue . That's a pretty decent alternate line if you either don't have the mana or think that it's too risky that turn to choose and cast Weird Harvest.

Taking a 2 drop and turning it into Rishkar, Peema Renegade should help spread around a significant number of counters to ramp you, but that's the least powerful synergistic interaction that Neoform offers. Most of the time you are going to be using it to go from a 2 drop into one of your tutor creatures or a 3 drop into either Ancestral Statue or Glen Elendra Archmage .

PartyJ on More card draw for Hallar

as a vivid Hallar player I had to take a peek at your draw options. I once also had the feeling as if I felt the draw rate was too low. The 'issue' with Hallar is that you are always looking for a good balance of options: counters, kickers, removal, ramp.... and then also draw.

It is a constant process of tweaking your balance, partly based on your local meta. Play lots of games to get a feel of which category of cards could be shortened a little to make room for other options waiting to be added.

Regarding your draw options, I would seriously consider these draw spells. They served me really well:

If you can afford all three, than I would add them without hesitation.

Other all-star cards worth considering for Hallar:

Good luck!

Consider adding "Budget," "Ramp," and "Gruul" to the deck's Hub(s).

Possibly relevant +1/+1 counter cards: Hardened Scales - get more counters Bow of Nylea - deathtouch is a powerful thing, but at 3CMC, this isn't one of my favorite spells. With the ramp you're packing, it's realistic to consider it viable here. Rishkar, Peema Renegade - This can generate a lot of ramp in mid-game.

Commune with the Gods is the only spell I can think of in Gruul that can help you get an enchantment. Putting cards into the graveyard is sucky though if you don't have a reliable means of getting them out.

Heroic Intervention is better than Vines of Vastwood , but I recognize it might be more expensive than your budget allows. Blossoming Defense is worth considering, if you haven't already.

You might benefit from Utopia Sprawl over Fertile Ground . It's a solid t1 spell, and given that nearly 3/4 of your deck requires green mana, you could probably go something like 11 Forest & 5 Mountain safely.

Harmonize might be better than Beast Whisperer - my thinking is this: by the time you cast Beast Whisperer for 4 CMC, there's a good chance you'll be close to top-decking. You'll then have less than a 50/50 chance of drawing a creature. You may often not even get a single card out of the Whisperer, as opponents may choose to remove it or cast a boardwipe. With Harmonize, you always get 3 cards. At 1.33 CMC per card, that's actually among the lowest CMC's per card among draw card spells.

Sideboard: Beast Within , Naturalize , Back to Nature , Pithing Needle , Ratchet Bomb , Elixir of Immortality , Lignify , Fireball
