JoeNathan37 on Too Many +1/+1s

I was about to comment that you look short on lands then I realized you’re actually just short on cards in general. In case you’re new to Commander/EDH (if that’s the case welcome, I hope you enjoy your stay in the best format in MTG) usually for lands in an EDH deck you want somewhere between 35-39, depending on the deck. I usually start with 37 or 38 and take some out or add some in as I feel like I need them.

Quick disclaimer: I haven’t ever played with an Experiment Kraj deck so I’m not likely to be super helpful but I’ll do what I can. I would recommend going around this website some more and/or EDHrec to find some ideas. EDHrec in particular has been invaluable for me in the past, I would really recommend checking it out.

Incremental Growth could be great here as a way to spread counters around and get Kraj access to some more abilities.

Morphling and AEtherling could also be amazing, as they both could get Kraj some protection once he gets their abilities and they have a wide range of other abilities which could prove useful.

Asceticism, while it may be a bit expensive, is very nice as a way to protect Kraj and all of the creatures that have counters on them.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is another way you could get counters on things.

Hadana's Climb  Flip is yet another way you can spread counters around, and while it’s flip side may not always be super useful here its front side definitely would be.

Pretty much all green decks in EDH should have Cultivate and Kodama's Reach, as well as Rampant Growth or whatever other ramp spell tickles your fancy.

You may want Commander's Sphere as a replacement for Simic Cluestone (or you could just put it in too if you want) since it is effectively a direct upgrade.

A land all non-mono color EDH decks should have is Command Tower. It’s an always untapped dual land that doesn’t cost thousands of dollars and should be in pretty much all decks that have more than one color.

Murkfiend Liege (and Seedborn Muse if you’re willing to spend a little more, although it’s definitely worth it for untapping lands) could be pretty nice as well, as untapping Kraj on everyone else’s turn could be devastating.

I hope some of these ideas helped you. Even if they didn’t I would still recommend checking out EDHrec, it is incredibly helpful and a great resource. Good luck with your deck!

First thing I would say is you need significantly more land, mana sources, and ramp. I would look at Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, and consider Sakura-Tribe Elder and Yavimaya Elder. Probably Simic Signet, Simic Cluestone, and Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot. And get your land count between 36-38.

Ok I realize now you have 36 lands. I'm not used to your layout. I use the standard one. I suggest you replacing those 5 I suggested removing with the 8 (two are not formating correctly) I suggested adding and also removing 3-4 islands to average your lands around 35-36 (I still think you could go as low as 33 in a dual color deck).

I also suggested 5 enchantment/artifact mana ramp and replace 4 of them (I think the Simic Cluestone is good.

I like the basic structure of the deck. The main thing I'm noticing as a negative is that there are a lot of cards that don't contribute much later in the game, and there isn't a lot of card draw.

One of the downsides of a lot of the Exalted creatures is that many of them (like Akrasan Squire) don't add anything except another Exalted trigger. I would consider removing some of them, focusing on the ones with evasion or enough bulk to survive.

Armadillo Cloak is a great enchantment to stack with the Lifelink subtheme you seem to have going. The oracle text means it stacks with Lifelink, so it might be better than Unflinching Courage.

Rampant Growth is a single use and doesn't ramp you very much. Sword of the Animist might get you more bang for your buck.

The new card, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, seems like it would be a perfect fit for your deck, possibly replacing or in addition to Dueling Grounds. Crawlspace is another similar option.

Congregation at Dawn doesn't seem like a great option with the lack of card draw.

Off hand, something like Drogskol Reaver might be a good option with your lifelink cards. Azorius Cluestone, Selesnya Cluestone, and Simic Cluestone might be better options than their Signet counterparts, as another source of card draw. Cards like Bident of Thassa and Edric, Spymaster of Trest would grant additional draws with double-strike.

Hope these suggestions help! +1 to your deck from me.

Some of these nonbasic lands are slowing you down quite a bit. In two colors, you really don't need this much fixing--especially if one of those colors is green. I would replace Simic Guildgate, Holdout Settlement, Shimmering Grotto, Vivid Creek, and Vivid Grove with forests.

After that, I'd take out some of your weaker cards and replace them with ramp spells, because you don't have enough--especially with an average CMC over 3.

These ramp pieces will also help you ensure you hit your colors: Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Search for Tomorrow, Farseek, Cultivate, and Kodama's Reach.

As for what to take out, I'd pick Simic Basilisk, Nimbus Swimmer, Aquastrand Spider, Simic Cluestone, Darksteel Ingot, and Forced Adaptation. These cards don't do enough for the mana you're spending on them, or they aren't as good as other cards you have.

The mana rocks in particular really don't need to be in here if you can get extra lands out. Lands won't get wiped out by a Cyclonic Rift, Planar Cleansing or Vandalblast the way these artifacts can.

If you add these ramp spells, you can also shave a couple of lands off to add some more draw, which you are also lacking. Arcanis the Omnipotent is a good choice if you want to play with Experiment Kraj's activated ability text. Aside from that, even the budget blue sorceries like Concentrate and Tidings do their job just fine.

All that said, I like the deck a lot! I played with Ezuri, Claw of Progress for a while. Simic counters is a powerful archetype.

Firstly, I love the approach of the deck. Dovescape makes for the ultimate lock-down, so let's focus on that as your win-con and revolve the deck around it.

Don't be afraid to include non-creature spells because of this, remember, that your non-creature spells are just going to turn into doves late-game anyways; use this to your advantage.

Creatures

Tribal Buffs

I agree with most of musicalsocks's suggestions, however:

Additionally:

Token Support

Strict Replacement

You can afford to be running 36-38 lands, so cut back there.Swap Azorius Cluestone, Selesnya Cluestone, and Simic Cluestone for Commander's Sphere, Pillar of Origins, and Sol Ring?

Additionally, run Path of Ancestry instead of Ancient Ziggurat.

So this is both a decent start and has a long way to go. While I don't have many specific card cuts to recommend to you, I can point you in a general direction for you to go, as well as a bunch of cards that might help you...

Hopefully some amount of this will help! You're allready at the deck being only $90 so you're pretty close! Good luck!
