It was tested thoroughly and there was almost never a situation where it was needed. Having to tap the creature to fight takes away the advantage of fighting and then also attacking in the same turn.

Was Experiment One ever considered? Or would a playset put the price over the top?

Thanks for the suggestion though. This deck has probably seen the most playtesting of any of my decks thanks to MarioLL who really put it through the ringer in all its variations. This deck's biggest advantage is using fights to clear the way for massively pumped creatures to attack. Ideally, you throw out something like Prey Upon, drop their toughest creature, then attack. If they don't block or you trample through, then you pop some more heroic triggering spells and swing for the kill. It happens very quickly.

There are two VERY long comments section in the updates detailing every single change, their tests results, and their reasoning. Chances are, if you have an idea, it's in there.

The downside of Experiment One is it needs +1/+1 counters to get regeneration, but it doesn't possess a heroic trigger to put those counters on itself. As I know of, there is only one spell that puts +1/+1 on a creature and fights: Dromoka's Command. Epic Experiment pumps a creature until end of turn. Since it's not a Warrior to be pumped by Bramblewood Paragon, we would have to put in the deck other spells that can produce +1/+1 counters. I think it's a little too much work to fit one card in the deck: one that's not a high-end finisher like Staunch-Hearted Warrior and it doesn't provide value for other cards like Bramblewood Paragon or Tuskguard Captain do.

Any thoughts on Aspect of Hydra? Seems like it could work well if there was something that could be pulled out.

MarioLL It also lets you reallocate counters if one of your dudes gets hit with some spot removal

Sorry, I was doing some tests with the Beetle and never changed it back. He was to make it so the avatar could come down as a 4/3 turn 2. It does work. Not the best, but it works.

I think you need to update your deck breakdown :) lol

Have you considered Increasing Savagery? Seems like it could help with counters :) awesome deck by the way, I really like the idea :)

I've been working on my own G/W bolster deck and haven't tested it yet, but I think 1 card that would fit nicely in this deck is: Hardened Scales (maybe drop out a couple of fight spells). And running 4 Scales is nice because they are only 1 mana and the ability stacks with multiple on the field!

What about playing a Mutant's Prey? Pretty much all your creatures will have counters on them, so why not boost the theme of this deck?

Just came across Fungal Behemoth pretty cheap fatty with added utility.

Pit Fight is instant vs Prey Upon at sorcery speed.
September 16, 2015 12:01 a.m.
Having instant speed heroic triggers to outwork Lightning Bolt is relevant.
Also in a format where Twin (the combo deck of choice) operates at instant speed, and threatens to untap and kill you, you need instant-speed interaction to break up the combo.

Kitchen Top has a meta?

Technically a kitchen table has a meta.

Why would they run T2 Modern Decks in a casual game?
September 16, 2015 10:50 p.m.
Look at the tags on this deck. None of them say casual. If one is to take the tags modern and competitive into account, instant speed is better. If one less mana and sorcery speed works in your table games cool. Against a modern competitive deck one more mana for instant speed is justifiable, as was explained in the Splinter Twin example. As explained in the description extensive play testing was done, if Prey Upon was better I'd bet that it would be a 4 of.

Gotta second Hardened Scales. Seems like it would fit well

Does BFZ or Oath bring anything that could improve this deck?

I did a quick check through the comments and didn't find this. Have you thought about adding Managorger Hydra?
It seems nice because you don't have to target it for it to build up (so you can target your other heroics), and it benefits from opponents casting spells, and it starts with trample.

After playing with borrowed cards for some time now I decided to buy this deck and test my possibility with others. I really like this list, thank you! Also, how do you see the recently depriced Nissa, Voice of Zendikar as a possible spin on this list? I think it's still too early for me to try deckbuilding but I hope to help and find good upgrades when the time will come.

What about putting a couple of Oran-Rief, the Vastwoods in this deck?
November 18, 2017 9:50 p.m.
Bit of a trade off there. The counters would definitely be welcomed. But at the cost of a land that comes in tapped. This deck plays sort of like a tempo deck. It uses efficient removal to control the board while coming out swinging fast. A tapped forest could cost you some much needed speed against faster opponents.
