Wickerbough Elder could be interesting. Naturalize + Hapatra's ability trigger

If also try Nest of Scarabs, Soul Snuffers, Vhati il-Dal,Wickerbough Elder, Necroskitter, and if your really mean Smokestack. Also you should hit the green check for all suggestions you like (they will also auto add to your maybe board:P

Cards you should consider are Blowfly Infestation, Carnifex Demon, Channeler Initiate, Deity of Scars, Black Sun's Zenith, Grim Poppet, Wickerbough Elder, Quillspike, and Devoted Druid.

Important to note that Devoted Druid + Quillspike is an infinite combo.

Sorry hit enter before I meant to. Are you using the land destruction of Acidic Slime at 5cc? If not how about larger creatures? Wickerbough Elder, Oxidda Scrapmelter, Indrik Stomphowler or Conclave Naturalists

Torpor Orb, Rest in Peace, Asceticism, and a litany of other problem children are becoming more and more common in my meta. I need non-etb reliable enchant/artifact removal.

Kefnet the Mindful and Slice in Twain out for some testing.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury has always been a maybe for this deck. Creating mana dorks, removing problem pieces, and a handy/easy ult while not really drawing too much attention makes for an extremely useful piece in this build.

Wickerbough Elder over Trygon Predator because I have no true reliable way to cheat the TP damage through if they have flyers and every time I copy WE ill have 2 instances of removal. Slice in Twain or Krosan Grip will replace it if I get repeatedly bitten by this or I don't like the feel.

Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow work great in Varolz, though they aren't the cheapest cards to acquire. Force of Savagery, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Hunted Troll, Hunted Horror, Groundbreaker, and Nyxathid are reasonable cards to scavenge, though some are harder to get into your graveyard.

Corpsejack Menace, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Hardened Scales, and Retribution of the Ancients all play nicely with +1/+1 counters.

You are playing a green commander that can be quite aggressive. Therefore, you should be playing Rancor.

I'd probably try to play closer to 37 lands with Varolz.

If Worldslayer has a place anywhere in the format, it's in a Varolz deck, since you can regenerate him to survive the first boardwipe (possibly more, depending on whether you make tokens or blow up the Worldslayer in response to the damage trigger).

Blood Seeker > Tresspasser's Curse, though neither card is very good (unless you're hosing a specific combo).

Fertile Ground > Gift of Paradise.

Prey Upon > Cartouche of Strength.

Polluted Mire > Cartouche of Ambition. There are hundreds of other cards I could list here, but I'd rather have a land that cycles in a format where you never stop wanting to hit land drops than this cartouche.

Victim of Night/Go for the Throat > Reave Soul.

Silence the Believers > Edifice of Authority.

Basilisk Collar/Gorgon Flail/Gorgon's Head > Sultai Runemark.

You should really cut all your Ironshell Beetle variants. Run cards like Satyr Wayfinder, Elvish Visionary, Golgari Brownscale, Shambling Shell, or Yavimaya Elder instead.

Golgari Signet > Golgari Cluestone.

Lull > Haze of Pollen, though I would advise against running either card.

Nature's Claim > Natural State.

Sword of the Animist > Explorer's Scope.

I like Inspiring Call more than Destined // Lead, but the two aren't nearly as comparable as some of the other cards listed.

Giant Growth > Shed Weakness, though I wouldn't recommend running either card.

Seal of Doom > Spidery Grasp.

Wickerbough Elder > Springsage Ritual.

You have a lot of creature slots that are due for upgrades.

Oh, good catch with Rakdos Riteknife. I threw this together pretty quickly and didn't notice the color identity.

Doubling Season is definitely out of my budget, especially for a silly deck destined to play in a pretty casual group. And I'm already running Luminarch Ascension.

I really like your other suggestions, especially Wickerbough Elder and Fathom Mage. Thanks!

zorsmobile on An Encounter with the Count

Great looking deck, lots of cool ideas! Small comment, you can't have Rakdos Riteknife in here because the color identity is red unfortunately.

Random suggestions: You can't have a counters deck without Doubling Season! Fertilid seems like it'd be great in this deck for repeatable ramp, Wickerbough Elder as repeatable artifact/enchantment removal, Fathom Mage is always nice to draw another card every turn for free, and Luminarch Ascension can win games by itself. I feel like Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots would be very valuable in this deck as Atraxa is so synergistic with the rest of the deck and will draw a ton of hate.
