Tuskguard Captain Discussion

My suggestions for cuts are plentiful. However, Kresh the Bloodbraided comes to mind immediately. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would be good, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is great, Rockslide Elemental is similar to Kresh, Taurean Mauler is another Managorger, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Malakir Cullblade, with even more similarities to Kresh, may fit well with your flavor. Curse of Stalked Prey could help, alongside Curse of Predation, some mana rocks would do you good, Apocalypse Hydra, and many other hydras would be decent finishers, Kalonian Hydra takes the cake though. Armorcraft Judge is nice, along with Inspiring Call, Pelt Collector and Experiment One, Champion of Lambholt, maybe Heroes' Bane, Ravenous Slime, Rubblebelt Raiders, Deus of Calamity, Scute Mob, Sporeback Troll, Tuskguard Captain, Vinelasher Kudzu, Soul's Majesty, Falkenrath Exterminator, and Stromkirk Noble?

So that's a few suggestions. Want me to propose cuts as well?

Your mana curve peaks at 4 mana and you have Mirari's Wake, so it might be interesting to invest in 2-mana land ramp options, so you can cast your 4-drops on turn 3 to get your plan going. I suggest Nature's Lore and Farseek. Gyre Sage grow up and ramp quickly, while Rishkar, Peema Renegade can put the first counter on creatures so you can proliferate them and tap them for mana when needed. I would take out Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper (you need to hit someone to profit on her - she is better on a lifegain/token deck), Primal Amulet  Flip (you don't have many essential sorceries to be copied) and Custodi Soulbinders (a really slow card) for them. // Orzhov Advokist serves double duty: she deters opponents from attacking you if they accept the offer, and also put counters on your creatures for free. Inexorable Tide is free proliferate while you cast your spells. Lim-Dul's Vault is a better tutor than Diabolic Tutor (maybe you should run both). // I would also upgrade the removal package to make it more versatile: Utter End instead of Sylvan Reclamation, Anguished Unmaking instead of Viridian Corrupter (if you want to win with infect, you have to fully commit to it), Abzan Charm (great versatility) instead of Mortify. Swan Song (better because cost less) or Arcane Denial instead of Mystic Confluence (5 mana is a lot to hold in a proactive deck). If you need even more removal, Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares are cheap ones to pick. // In terms of finishers, you could swap out Tuskguard Captain for Herald of Secret Streams. Odric, Lunarch Marshal has great synergy with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Champion of Lambholt, Managorger Hydra, Chasm Skulker and Cathars' Crusade require quick answer, or else they win you the game. // In the card advantage department, Bred for the Hunt, Path of Discovery (also create counters), Shapers of Nature (also create counters), Zameck Guildmage and Etched Oracle are repeatable draw while Rishkar's Expertise, Prime Speaker Zegana, Painful Truths and the aforementioned Abzan Charm are 1-shot card draw. I recommend replace Manifold Insights and Mirrorweave with Rishkar's Expertise and Prime Speaker Zegana. It is important to have about 10 ramp sources, 10 draw sources, 5 target removal and at least 3 boardwipes, and you should look for cards that can do more than 1 thing (like Abzan Charm) because they are the most versatile (therefore valuable) cards in your deck. // Guildmages' Forum is a strict upgrade over Opal Palace, because it can put counters on other creatures. I would also reduce the number of tapped lands in the deck, so you can reliably play something on turn 2. Blossoming Sands, Thornwood Falls, Tranquil Cove, Azorius Chancery, Dreadship Reef (doesn't provide colors right away) should be the first ones to be swapped. Some nice cards that enter the battlefield untapped are Caves of Koilos, Llanowar Wastes, Yavimaya Coast, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Bountiful Promenade, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, Gavony Township, Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, Godless Shrine, Breeding Pool (the last 4 are all getting reprinted).

Tuskguard Captain is a personal favorite card and does well in any +1/+1 counter deck. Plus it has 2 power which is nice

AkaAkuma on +1 for you, +1 for you....

To start off: Hardened Scales, Bear Umbra and Ordeal of Nylea. You do allot with just one counter, make use of it! And bear umbra or ordeal of nylea not only means counters but also a free extra Jenara abilities each turn.

Then we have allot of +1/+1 synergy in this deck, but allot of them are single use or difficult to get.

Hey folks!

For Bbohl16: Mikaeus, the Lunarch would be an amazing addition to this deck! I can drop him for as little as two mana and then grow him/ use him to grow everything else. I love it!

For ZendikariWol: Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants would indeed be nice if I had a lower curve on my creatures but that is sadly not the case. Additionally his ult is rather underwhelming compared to the other versions I already have in this deck. Witch-Maw Nephilim/Managorger Hydra are both great cards for this deck and I will be adding them to my list!

In regards to Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, and Tuskguard Captain: I'll admit I have a personal distaste for these three cards but I already have workarounds in the deck that provide more utility/ are harder to remove. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice has lifelink already, Nylea, God of the Hunt gives everything trample with the benefit of being very hard to remove, and Hadana's Climb  Flip can generate +1/+1 counters/ make me fly/ double my power & toughness. Also I have several creatures that are unblockable/ make my things unblockable.

Thank you both of you for the suggestions/comments and I hope I managed to make my reasoning for accepting/declining your suggestions clear.

So 2 suggestions: Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and Witch-Maw Nephilim/Managorger Hydra. People cast lots of spells in commander and Ajani might be able to get back some dead fellows (though he would be better if your mana curve were a touch lower). Also, windmill slam Abzan Falconer and Abzan Battle Priest, and maybe Tuskguard Captain. First two are some fierce wincons, and in a flier meta the Captain is a good replacement for Falconer.

Hello,I have a question about this build: how effective is Whisperwood Elemental?? and what about Tuskguard Captain?? I was thinking that "maybe" it's better to use the Bramblewood Paragon because she also provides Trample and only cost 2 mana. :D
