Suns_Champion on Wait for the kicker - Hallar, the Firefletcher

6 months ago

Okay buddy here we go!

I think we need to fix a lot of things here. Ramp is an easy fix, we'll get some more instant/sorceries that get lands because they are safest. Then we'll work on getting more counters on Hallar in more efficient ways. We'll also swap out some of your kicker spells for other kicker spells that do better things.

Cards to look at:

Cards to maybe cut

So with all that I hope you're mana will be more consistant and your draw will be more powerful, then you'll be able to dump more counters on Hallar and snipe some wins. If not, your kicker spells will have more impact because they'll draw or remove or ramp. Focus on the 2cmc ramp cards, then swap out the kicker spells, then get those draw cards in there.

Here's a Deck you can also look at

I have really enjoyed seeing you play your deck on MTGMuddstah. Have you considered Comet Storm, Canopy Surge, and Molten Disaster? It seems that Hallar is really good at nuking all opponents, so effects like these three can hit all of your opponents while also triggering Hallar, plus they can usually survive the Disaster, too.

Goblin Ruinblaster, Joraga Warcaller, Overload, and Verduran Emissary are all strong kicker cards that seem worth testing as well. I love the strategy of focusing on +1/+1 counters and just using the good kicker spells, but maybe you could swap out some of the more situational cards, like Unstable Footing and Sporeback Troll?

Great deck, love the strat.

A few suggestions:

Zendikar Resurgent is great, but I'm not sure it works with what you're trying to do here.

Triumph of Ferocity seems situational, you're probably better off having something like Harmonize

Shape of the Wiitigo is quite expensive for what it does

Primeval Bounty expensive card for what it does

Primal Vigorchances of you casting this, then passing and letting your opponents use it first are high, imo.

Death's Presence you don't have that many creature to benefit from this.

Ashling the Pilgrim seems like a weak board wipe. Might be okay, though, but expensive.

Jugan, the Rising Star is just kinda bad, and you can do better for 6 aman

Rage Forger1 damage across 2-3 creatures won't make a big difference, even if it's across a few turns.

Soul's Might I don't think this is good.

Boundless Realms you need cheaper mana sources. You should add Rampant Growth and other cheap ramp. And Kodama's Reach

Zhur-Taa Druid Rampant Growth Kodama's Reach 2 Forest 2 Mountain would be my suggestions for a bit more ramp to give you the nudge in mana to cast the kickers.

Verduran Emissary Scrounging Bandar Keldon Overseer Fungal Behemoth Citanul Woodreaders Burst Lightning seem okay, but work nicely with what you're trying to do. Maximising on kicker is the way to go, imo.

Rishkar's Expertise goes in almost every green deck. It's crazy good, especially with a giant commander.
