Scrounging Bandar Discussion

I think you might want to try and improve consistency. Having 3 copies of more cards makes the deck less consistent than focusing on keeping 4 copies of the key cards. I think Conviction, Renegade Map, and Scrounging Bandar should both be 4 of to trigger revolt consistently and Solemn Recruit should be 4 of especially since it is not legendary and gets huge gains from having revolt trigger. I also think you should work in some Immolating Glare for killing bigger creatures that don't die to Skywhaler's Shot and Monstrous Onslaught maybe in the side for the low to the ground decks.

I think that will give you a good start to making this deck a lot more consistent and even more fun to play with the revolt trigger!

I recommend taking out the Ajani Unyielding and both Aethersphere Harvesters. Ajani is just terrible overall, and could be replaced with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. As for the Harvesters, there's no added benefit of running them. Your creatures are going to be big enough that you don't want to tap down anything to get less power. I'd replace those with Ridgescale Tuskers, even though it does slightly mess up the curve. Also, don't run the Solemn Recruit. Revolt isn't something that can always be triggered, and is too unreliable to run if it's not entirely built around. Definitely run Scrounging Bandars instead. Otherwise, +1 from me.

this deck seems fun and definitely something I'd like to play.I have a similiar but more competitive B/G deck since I use Grim Flayers and other hard hitting creatures like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

Since this is more casual I'd like to suggest to use Scrounging Bandar instead of Kujar Seedsculptor.You probably have him somewhere in the midst of the cards you own :)Depending on what you're trying to do with winding constrictor I believe Bandar is a must have :3

+1 from me

I added Unbridled Growth which works as a revolt trigger and has synergy with Renegade Rallier. I might consider Ninth Bridge Patrol or Scrounging Bandar to work with revolt triggers. Scrounging Bandar would transfer all its counters to another creature, Renegade Rallier could bring it back again to repeat.

i agree with tenaciouskey, except id take it one step further and say just cut murder out altogether. also Scrounging Bandar is just plain better than Thriving Rhino in this brew. it enters as a possible 3/3 with only one winding constrictor in play, and if you get two out, you can just swap counters between the two adding one each time until you transfer them over to your marauder. also, i'd consider running a Rishkar, Peema Renegade as a one of, for a little mana fixing and a small counter boost. not exactly game changing but worth imo.

I don't know if you are looking for advice but I noticed some less than optimal selections in your deck:

Root Out: Doesn't hit land, consider switching for Creeping Mold or Reclaiming Vines for versatility.Natural Connection:Between your commander and your mana dorks, you already have enough rampRoot Out: Doesn't hit land, consider switching for Creeping Mold or Reclaiming VinesWeirding Wood: You don't need color fixing. Greenbelt Rampager:3/4 vanilla = Not enough impact on commander. Obsessive Skinner would fit the strategy better.Lambholt Pacifist  Flip: Same as above. Consider Scrounging Bandar, Soul Swallower or Shrill Howler  Flip

As for what should go in, remember that as green deck you are easily disrupted by boardwipes. With that in mind I cannot recommend Ulvenwald Mysteries enough. It gives you card advantage, get bodies out and helps you stabilize after boardwipes. It's just amazing for EDH. Heroic Intervention is also an alternative.

Also you have a whooping total of 1 removal spell (Monstrous Onslaught), not nearly enough. Consider adding Hunt the Weak, Clear Shot or Nature's Way. Vessel of Nascency and Oath of Nissa are not spectacular, so they can go if you need space.

Finally, don't forget to include Evolving Wilds, Blighted Woodlands and Warped Landscape to help trigger Revolt, Delirium and just in general to help you draw into less land as the game goes on.

Epochalyptik on Infinite counters with winding constrictor?

@LithiumHD: In the future, please ask a new question instead of replying to an old thread.

Also, please use a separate thread if you have an unrelated or tangential question.

To answer you, though, Scrounging Bandar's ability is a triggered ability that triggers at the beginning of your upkeep. It doesn't keep triggering after that. You can move the counters off of each Scrounging Bandar once on each of your turns.

if you have two Scrounging Bandar, can you trade between the two on upkeep indefinitely for that to go infinite? or does the "at the beginning of you upkeep" clause prevent this?
