Servant of the Scale

Creature — Human Soldier

Servant of the Scale enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it.

When Servant of the Scale dies, put X +1/+1 counters on target creature you control, where X is the number of +1/+1 counters on Servant of the Scale.

PurePwnage on Winding Constrictor + Hardened Scales ...

Let's say I have 2x Winding Constrictor and 1x Hardened Scales on the battlefield at the same time, I then cast Servant of the Scale . How many counters would Servant receive in addition to the initial +1/+1 counters? I assume it's 3 in total, but I am not 100 percent sure.

CardTyrant: Thanks for the suggestion, but sadly Cathars' Crusade is a white card and out of the color scheme of the deck. As much as I want white in this deck, there are no good partners that fit these themes currently.

Rzepkanut: I agree that Vastwood Hydra and Servant of the Scale are a good fit for this deck. I am adding them to the maybeboard to test them later on.

Vastwood Hydra combos with Reyhan out. When it dies you will get double triggers basically. Servant of the Scale and the modular creatures all do this too, but the modular mechanic needs other artifact creatures to put the counters on. Check out my reyhan for examples..

Ok, so I replaced Armorcraft Judge with Inspiring Call. It serves mostly the same purpose, but is 1 mana cheaper (yay) and doesn't give you a 3/3 creature (nah, it doesn't actually change much in this deck). I also replaced Cloudfin Raptor (an ok counter generator thanks to Simic Guildmage) with Hardened Scales.

Avatar of the Resolute is nice, but I wouldn't replace anything other with this card.

Servant of the Scale IMO doesn't really fit into this deck. If cast before Master Biomancer it doesn't do much, and otherwise I generally don't want my creatures buffed with 4 or so +1/+1 tokens to die.

For early game that can potentially become potent in late game as well, I can recommend Servant of the Scale :)

Have you considered Hardened Scales? You could cut Mer-Ek Nightblade, the illegal Spiritmonger and a Journey to Eternity  Flip. You might also go down to just two Vigor Mortis, cut New Horizons and one Corpsejack Menace for a play-set of Avatar of the Resolute. If you wanted to make the deck lower to the ground and aggressive you could add four Servant of the Scale. You could also improve your mana with a play-set of Woodland Cemetery.

+1 though, I love counters and your deck seems sweet.

Decide if you want to be valuetown goodstuff (and what type of that) or counters synergy.

Get a playset of Caves of Koilos/Llanowar Wastes/checklands, it'll let you play anything in these colours, even if it'll cost a bunch of life. As a stopgap, get a full playset of Crumbling Vestige- its cheap and will let you knock out a 1-off spell.

If you want counters synergy a full set of Winding Constrictor and Hardened Scales, then play a bunch of Servant of the Scale and Simic Initiate. Kudzu only looks amazing with fetches, so let it sit out. Cut abzan charm and Abundant Growth- Golgari Charm in the sideboard if you need it. If you're keeping it budget, Scrounging Bandar and Mindless Automaton can make a good draw engine.

If you want goodstuff valuetown Gurmag Angler, the card tearing up legacy, is your friend. You don't have the fetches to make him and taisugir broken, but Grisly Salvage, Treasured Find and Satyr Wayfinder can help, especially if you exploit some other graveyard synergies. Remember that in this space you will be competing with Tarmogoyf and Grim Flayer, and they will eat most creatures.

Alternatively, go all in on the Siege Rhino plan, and play a blink deck- Staring Contest: A List of Blink-Effect Cards has a good list. Thragtusk and rhino, as soon as possible (manadorks) to stabilize and start getting value from blinks. Eternal Witness and Dusk Legion Zealot/Elvish Visionary will be good engine peices.

Plan your sideboard, and put it up here. It'll help you stay more focussed in the maindeck, deciding when you need 4-ofs and when you need just one copy, and let us judge what needs tinkering a bit better.
