Hey Tethys! Feeling honored you checked this deck :D

I see your point with IOK. In some games they were quite good, but I agree they're nowhere near to being a solid plan.

I used to run 3 Nissas and decided to cut one down for the Inquisitions, so she's totally back in. And 21 lands should definetely work better (with the Heaths and all, I didn't think of the budget option...).

Btw, what would you think of a future variation of this deck including white for Dromoka's Command instead of Hunger of the Howlpack, Mikaeus, the Lunarch and Archangel of Thune (and its possible infinite combo w/ Spike Feeder)? Would it be worth it?

Spike Feeder and especially Spike Weaver would both be incredibly useful in a deck like this.

Might I suggest Lightmine Field to help with tokens strategies? Also Spike Feeder with Sunbond nets you infinite life.

Sol Ring is banned in Legacy just so you know. Also I feel the deck has to be a bit faster for the legacy meta right now. Sylvan Caryatid and Noble Hierarch are better than Whisperer of the Wilds (Noble is too expensive but the Caryatid is relatively budget).

You may also consider working in the Spike Feeder infinite life combo by adding white for Archangel of Thune, or even by playing Food Chain to enable the combo.

Legacy is a fast format full of control decks of various types so just be wary with setting up turn three as some Legacy decks won't even let you live that long. Honestly I would move this deck to modern seeing how only Sol Ring, Primal Vigor and Verdant Confluence are not modern legal, and then as a previous user said if you are set on a Scales deck play Winding Constrictor, or even Abzan Spike Feeder.

Hi fam!

So for creatures that have abilities that says 'remove X +1/+1 counters. Do the thing.' like Spike Feeder for example, can you remove the counters provided by boardwide +1/+1 effects, such as Mirari's Wake? My gut instinct says no, but I'd like to make sure first. Any input on this? Thanks!

I'd cut the Winding Constrictor. You're not running energy or experience counters. The only artifact with counters is your Lux Cannon. The Constrictor allows your opponents to kill you faster with their poison. Corpsejack Menace is a safer and better (doubling, not just adding another +1/+1 counter) choice.

If you're adding Spike Feeder, you should add an Unspeakable Symbol. Take a close look at what is does with a Hardened Scales type effect.
