EDH Marath, Will of the Wild - Tokens and Counters

Commander / EDH Aggro Counters Tokens




My attempt at a Marath commander deck. I'm looking to go all-in on the tokens and +1/+1 counters theme, with a couple combos (like Ivy Lane Denizen or Cathars' Crusade with Ashnod's Altar and Marath) just to close out a game when other plans fail. I already have a few more dedicated combo decks though, so I'd like to make this a more "fair" deck that mainly wants to beat face with hordes of tokens.

If anyone has good recommendations for cards to help this strategy, they'd be most appreciated - especially if you can recommend what to take out for the new card! The one caveat is that I'm working on a pretty tight budget, as you can probably tell from looking at the list (Impact Tremors instead of Purphoros, God of the Forge, no Mana Echoes, no Doubling Season, etc.).

Thanks everyone for checking out the deck!


Updates Add


Warstorm Surge and Bloodspore Thrinax would be great additions. +1 from me. For what to remove, I'd recommend reducing the number of single-target removal you run.

Descent of the Dragons is another awesome half-removal and half-token-upgrade spell.

I feel like Mana Echoes is a must-include in this, since it can snowball out of control with Marath's elementals. If you also have Food Chain out, then you can just kill the table, but that's a bit more combo-y than most folks like. Even without Food Chain I think Echoes is absolutely necessary.

Ah, I saw your comment about Echoes - ignore me.

Gyre Sage and Basilisk Collar also seem like great cards you could be running. Aura Shards has gotten pretty cheap nowadays too, and it seems like an excellent way to control the board with Marath.
