Strangleroot Geist Discussion
3 days ago
And how exactly are you giving gyre sage haste in order to activate these abilities? You have me very confused with mentioning "stax" in a "counters" deck, since they've never been referred to as "stacks" before
Also Strangleroot Geist is a thing
How well does this do vs the current 3-4 turn win meta?

Bloom Tender is insane in 3+ color edh decks but 2 color its often very underwhelming, and its very slow for modern at 2 cmc and lacking haste
Id run Burning-Tree Emissary because it casts for free and gives you the 2 mana right away to cast more creatures or spells
Cobra is alsp slower than it looks,
Pyroclasm is probably strong in mainboard with these creatures since mana dorks are all but disposable and since countryside crusher and excavator seem to be the decks best beaters and will come out of pyroclasm alive and can swing
Hope that was helpful
Also my inner grammar nazi is screaming but im sure you didnt know, its pronounced "grauhl" not "grool" so your deck name doesnt rhyme as i believe you intended, just so you know, not that deck name has anything to do with its potential haha
Also my name speaks for me here, but if you got red creatures you gotta go good ol Goblin Guide :)
With that much ramp im surprised you dont run Primeval Titan since you could probably get him out turn 3, or even 2 with a good hand

Don't know if the Arcbound Ravager really works out, you only have a few artifacts to sacrifice for him and the Throne of Geth also demands sacrifices to do the same. I believe the Deck could work with even more Aggro in the Form of Rancor or Strangleroot Geist.
The main set of creatures is not bad, they only need to be out all at once, so instead investing into Collected Company would do more and can replace Lead the Stampede. If a playset of that works out, maybe with a Nissa less, that will put speed on the creatures you have.

Hey, I want you to know I've been thinking about this deck a lot lately, thinking about making modern finally, and this just seems the most fun for my budget range.
Have you considered running creatures with undying in this deck? You could infinitely recur them if everything always died with -1/-1 counters. Something as simple as Strangleroot Geist would be a phenomenal pain for your opponents!
Just a thought. I wanted to start some discussion before building my own list.

zephyr_chang Thanks for the advice! I'll be experimenting with 4 Experiment One to see if it works better than 4 Servant of the Scale. As good as Strangleroot Geist is I'm unsure where'd I'd be able to fit it in but I'll have a tinker and see what I can figure out. Abzan Falconer is great in this deck however when I played this deck I've found that having four often meant my hand often had one too many, that'll most likely just be due to the meta within my friend circle though.

If you want to do more with the +1/+1 counters theme, a great budget option would be Winding Constrictor ($0.50 ea). Undying creatures like Butcher Ghoul and Strangleroot Geist might also work well. You're a bit light on land for a deck with an average CMC of 2.6 and 8 4 drops. I think 23 would be a better number. If you're looking for things to cut, I think your ramp spells are out of place.

I would go up to a full 4 Experiment One and add 4 Strangleroot Geist. A playset of Travel Preparations is also probably better than having 4 Increasing Savagery, since the latter's CMC is a bit high. 1 more Abzan Falconer would be good too since it is quite important in the deck. You can consider Scavenging Ooze too. It is a widely played green creature that has a lot of utility and can get counters on itself as well. Dromoka's Command also seems useful.
