Neotrup on How do objects entering the ...

The relevant rule here is 614.12:

614.12. Some replacement effects modify how a permanent enters the battlefield. (See rules 614.1cd.) Such effects may come from the permanent itself if they affect only that permanent (as opposed to a general subset of permanents that includes it). They may also come from other sources. To determine which replacement effects apply and how they apply, check the characteristics of the permanent as it would exist on the battlefield, taking into account replacement effects that have already modified how it enters the battlefield (see rule 616.1), continuous effects from the permanent's own static abilities that would apply to it once it's on the battlefield, and continuous effects that already exist and would apply to the permanent

TL;DR Because Hardened Scales and Winding Constrictor aren't on the battlefield yet when Scrounging Bandar is trying to enter, they cannot effect it. The same is true for multiple Avatar of the Resolutes.

The answer is different for triggered abilities, if one of the creatures is a Garruk's Packleader it will trigger of each creature entering with enough power.

For example, Hardened Scales puts additional +1/+1 counters on creatures. If it and a Scrounging Bandar enter simultaneously, does the Hardened Scales see the Bandar? Is there a difference if Winding Constrictor is placing the counters because it too is a creature?

On a similar note, if multiple copies of Avatar of the Resolute enter at the same time and there is at least one conditional counter, do the Avatars see the counters on each other?

For how these things can happen, reference Genesis Wave.

I would use the green gearhulk in this deck. I cany remember the name right now but those counters are insane. Or maybe Scrounging Bandar for more counters and the ability to mess with damage.

Experiment One, Young Wolf, Vinelasher Kudzu (works well with all those Nature's Lores you have), Strangleroot Geist

If you can get 2 Scrounging Bandars on the field with Hardened Scales, that's an infinite combo.

I made my own deck about half an hour ago that uses Sage of Hours, so for a moment I thouhgt this was my own one. I use Forced Adaptation, since I have more Enchantments than you do and I tutor them with Meletis Astronomer, but I might switch some of them. Speaking of enchantments, Hardened Scales works really wel in this deck. It essentially doubles your counter output. Scrounging Bandar can essentially get 7 more counters to distribute. You might want to make some room for it.

Radiant Destiny Pride Sovereign Sunpetal Grove Metallic Mimic (if you're going for the +1/+1 counter theme...) should be added into the deck. Remove Wily Bandar Watchers of the Dead Stalking Tiger Scrounging Bandar. I think you should go up with Longtusk Cub and Prowling Serpopard or move the serpopard to the sideboard. Maybe look into more removal, or if you want Baffling End would fit too. maybe even Huatli, Radiant Champion could find a home here, as well as Anointed Procession and the white god, oktra.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Posting this Cats that don't suck list to research later, as MegaMatt13 commented, Pride Sovereign is a little weak, plus I find that 24 cats is a little short, although I've won games without playing a cat Stonehewer Giant + Puresteel Paladin + Grafted Exoskeleton.

I excluded many aggro cats because I feel that's not the right way to win in a multi-player format.

I'm sure I've missed some cats. I also have added some cats that do suck, but evaluating combos with them.
