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

I'd highly suggest adding in Cultivate, etc. for ramp; Inspiring Call for card draw and protection; Armorcraft Judge for card draw; Bristling Hydra nice body and makes a +1/+1 counter; Fairgrounds Trumpeter could get big easily; Retreat to Kazandu +1/+1 counters just for playing lands; Durable Handicraft for more +1/+1 counter generation; Abzan Battle Priest, Abzan Falconer, Ainok Bond-Kin, Tuskguard Captain, and Longshot Squad for great keywords; Regna, the Redeemer because you have a bunch of life-gain effects for her to make an army all on her own; and ways to close out the game like Overwhelming Stampede, etc.

As for a few cuts: Danitha Capashen, Paragon does very little work with only 6 relevant spells; Resolute Archangel is expensive for her effect and has no synergy with +1/+1 counters; Surrak, the Hunt Caller I do not see haste for one creature being a huge deal, this seems to be a more slow build-up strategy; and cut it down to 36 lands plus ~10 sources of ramp (that is what I do at least).

Fun looking budget build, good job!

Hello some possible changes to reduce the manacost some creatures that trigger Ezuri: Quickling instead of Rescue +Bramblewood Paragon Sage of Fables Abzan Beastmasterinstead of Tuskguard Captain enchantment:+Awakening Zone-From Beyond and more ramp maybe: Cultivate orFertilid(triggers Ezuri) I see that you use Kaseto, Orochi Archmage maybe you can trySnake Basket for snake tokens, another advise, reduce the cost of your counterspells:add Stubborn Denial Swan Song etc in general try to avoid creatures that surpass the 5 manacost :D
