I really like Hero of Leina Tower as well. It could potentially take Setessan Oathsworn place but I really like the interactions of heroic counters and Fall of the Hammer which triggers it and blows up an enemy creature. Hero of Leina Tower may limit that or they wouldn't be used in the same turn. It's definitely a great suggestion.

Aww, I thought Howl of the Horde copied spells multiple times. Well that's scrapped. Become Immense is a front runner as a replacement but you're absolutely right Crater's Claws has the flexibility to be used as a finisher and regular removal.

Ranger's Guile may find it's way into the main deck soon enough. I haven't been able to test this live yet. I'm actually heading to the card store to pick up this entire deck!

I'm definitely keeping Flame-Wreathed Phoenix and Setessan Oathsworn as they synergize far better with the deck strategy of counters. Although I will consider Polis Crusher.

I also learned that Solidarity of Heroes + Hardened Scales + Setessan Oathsworn actually gets 7 counters. So it's a 8/8 when that occurs due to the replacement effect of Hardened Scales.

  1. Oathsworn is initially 1/1
  2. Solidarity of Heroes targets Oathsworn triggering heroic. 2x +1/+1 counters are produced.
  3. Heroic triggers are replaced by Hardened Scales (2x +1/+1)+1 = 3x +1/+1
  4. Solidarity of Heroes resolves doubling 2((2(1)+1)) = 6
  5. Hardened Scales replaced effect: 2((2(1)+1))+1 = 7 counters. So its a 8/8

Also someone earlier suggest Nylea, God of the Hunt whom does something similar in that it gives everyone trample and can be an indestructible creature on the field. However I'd argue that it costs 1 colorless mana more rather than costing 3 mana for the Tuskguard Captain and it can block right away. It can also give itself counters although it is still a little slower than the rest of the deck. It's primarily used as a Trample enabler.

I did some playtesting. Heroic triggers with Hardened Scales turned out a lot better than I expected. I adjusted the number of Fall of the Hammer and Act of Treason to take more advantage of Heroic triggers.

Oh yeah, blue was originally in the deck with Ordeal of Thassa, it was removed due to inconsistencies.

Good call, done!

The lack of rampers was indeed intentional as an alternative deck but if it simply too slow immediately throw it in n there and replace the Satyr Hoplite.

If cost is an issue for Dragonscale Boon I would consider using Nature's Panoply as an alternative because placing counters on my creatures is an integral part of this deck. While I do understand Titan's Strength to be much powerful and stronger with the addition of scry, it just doesn't fit perfectly in here. But I will play test it.

November 20, 2014 7:04 a.m.

Done. Replaced 4x Rugged Highlands with 4x Wooded Foothills. It makes the deck a lot more expensive but I agree the speed also increased substantially. I'm going to stick with this theme. The outlast is not really a central theme rather the creature Tuskguard Captain just enables every other creatures with +1/+1 Trample, which applies to 95% of the creatures. So whether or not it's there is not important.

I'm not sure how I overlooked Courser of kruphix! Great suggestions!
