Syr Faren, the Hengehammer Discussion

Court Hussar seems weak. Syr Faren, the Hengehammer and Knight of the Reliquary do as well. I would cut all of them for better ramp cards, like Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart. Ancient Ziggurat might replace a Transguild Promenade. Order of Midnight also seems weak. Try Belle of the Brawl. Basri's Lieutenant is also really good. It could replace Deathless Knight.

Ok. I've had so much fun playing around with the variant I suggested that I ended up updated the deck - dropped Flaxen Intruder, Dragon-Scarred Bear, and two copies of Paragon of Eternal Wilds. Added in Wild Beastmaster, more Syr Faren, the Hengehammer, and more Exuberant Wolfbear.

Good one seshiro_of_the_orochi. If you really want to up the synergy, sub in two more Syr Faren, the Hengehammer for Flaxen Intruder, four Wild Beastmaster for Ulvenwald Bear, and three more Exuberant Wolfbear for Paragon of Eternal Wilds. Syr Faren, the Hengehammer into Wild Beastmaster into Exuberant Wolfbear will give you a pretty sick attack step on turn 5 - especially if you throw in an Overrun. If I'm doing my math right, you'll have an 11/11, an 18/18, and another 18/18, all with trample.

You could play Alpine Grizzly in that spot Marymatician. Wild Beastmaster is another good 3 drop for this deck - especially with Syr Faren, the Hengehammer, Exuberant Wolfbear, etc. But I didn't want to include too many non-bears (even when they have bears in the artwork). :)

This is probably the best version of Abzan Collected Company that I have seen. It's a shame you probably can't fit in something like Syr Faren, the Hengehammer because his ability would be very strong here. He is double green for casting cost, but he interacts well with your plethora of legendary creatures and the +1/+1 counter synergy you have going here. I 'm running a mono-white deck with a +1/+1 counter strategy/tribal feel as well, and Metallic Mimic is excellent there as well.

I like this idea, but I feel it could be a little wilder, in BUDGET 3 COLOUR (yay!)

If you are playing taplands, Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds gives budget access to all colours, while tri-lands give access to 3 colours. Naya Panorama combined with Jungle Shrine and basics is about as reliable as your current base.

If you are having trouble with tempo, colourless 1 and 2 drops are good alongside panorama and land searching- if you already run draw spells to look for your combo, making up card disadvantage from Renegade Map isn't backbreaking.

Green gives access to budget fixing and ramp, letting you power out the mace/boss while swapping out the feather/clarion package.

Syr Faren, the Hengehammer is a little too hard to cast with that double green cost, but a list running Wild Cantormight power him out.

Glistener Elf will make your opponent immediately get very scared, regardless of anything, and slapping a mace on it will double that. Ichorclaw Myr is cheaper and will force their removal.

Goblin tokens to go with prospector might help, with Kuldotha Rebirth taking advantage of artifact mana fixing- letting you go wide as a back up plan, letting you fight through the kind of removal these combo decks often have trouble with.

Breath of Fury is a spectacular alternative combo. It also lets you lean into a feather/heroic gameplan with cards like Akroan Crusader/Foundry Street Denizen. Alternatively, a more midrangey list with Brimaz, King of Oreskos or the rabblemasters. Haazda Marshal/Precinct Captain offers a low cost target.

Anointer Priest is going to be ok in the sideboard. Tithe Taker can be a budget thalia, sorta.

Thorn Lieutenant should be fairly cheap rn.

Knotvine Paladin is cheap and duplicates mace effects - serving as a budget alternative to Voice of Resurgence

Proliferate cards are budget and have strong interactions with the deck, doubling mace counters or +1+1s, so a backup plan featuring them and some random 'put a +1+1 counter' creatures will stack up pretty well.

Good luck and happy brewing.

I'm not sure about cEDH, but I love Syr Faren, the Hengehammer because of the surprising amount of damage he can deal out of nowhere.

I also love playing Jazal Goldmane, as you can deal upwards of 40 damage in one swing if no one has any interaction on turn 5. It makes me feel like I can play aggro in Commander, which is fun(for me)
