Abzan Falconer

Creature — Human Soldier

Outlast (, : Put a +1/+1 counter on this creature. Outlast only as a sorcery.)

Each creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it has flying.

Abzan Falconer or a couple of the other Outlast cards. Maybe Kalonian Hydra

Since you have to attack to activate the second ability you could use something that lets you attack with impunity. Bedlam, Vigor, Iroas, God of Victory, Master Warcraft, Cosmotronic Wave etc.

Hardened Scales and Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider are pretty dope for counter decks like this one!

Hamza, Guardian of Arashin can make your big creatures cheap, and Gavony Township is a decent mana-sink if you end up top-decking.

Kodama of the West Tree, Bramblewood Paragon, Gnarlid Colony, Trollbred Guardian, and Tuskguard Captain each give your creatures with counters on them trample (Kodama being the best one).

Abzan Falconer gives them flying instead.

Basri's Lieutenant is a fun card since it can repopulate your board after a board wipe and can block a lot of problematic creatures like multicolored commanders.

There are some reasons that you would want to sac/convert Hero during your turn. If you control an effect that draws when an artifact creature ETB then only during your turn will Leader be an artifact creature when it ETB due too Living Metal effect. On opponent's turn, Leader will ETB as an artifact not an artifact creature. This is a reason to want some more haste effects such as Swiftfoot Boots then you can get the draw from convert Hero to Leader during your turn while also attack with Leader.

When you convert Leader into Hero, Optimus doesn't leave the battlefield so it doesn't trigger effects that draw when an artifact creature ETB. Getting repeatable draw from other sources can help such as Bident of Thassa which triggers to draw for each creature you control who does combat damage to a player, each one. This effect could draw a lot of cards because your creatures can get huge from bolster.

Combine Bident draw effect with Abzan Falconer. Bident draw effect is similar to Thopter Spy Network with a difference, there's a max amount of cards Network can draw, equal to the number of different opponents you have, who you did combat damage to a player too. There's no max number that you can draw with Bident, matters how many creatures you control did combat damage to any opponent, could be 1 or could be 20.

DemonDragonJ on How Can I Put Mindless …

I would like to put Mindless Automaton into my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck, because it could provide amazing card advantage in that deck, but I am not certain which card to remove in favor of it. My first choice was Abzan Falconer, since this deck already contains both Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Akroma's Memorial, but the redundancy there is good, and replacing the falconer with the automaton would increase the deck's average converted mana cost, so the next choice is Azor's Elocutors, since replacing that card would decrease the deck's average converted mana cost, and the elocutors would make me a target, since there is no way that my opponents shall allow it to survive. I did also consider replacing Otherworld Atlas with the automaton, but I would like to have both cards in the deck, for redundancy.

What does everyone else say about this? How can I put Mindless Automaton in my Atraxa deck?

shadow63yeah I wasn't really interested in Outlast per se but more in what cards like Ainok Bond-Kin and Abzan Falconer give to the other creatures with a +1/+1 counter on it. Anyway thanks for the suggestion and for commenting on my deck

Investing in the lands is expensive but does make every deck run so much smoother...

Chasmolinker, I have not forgot about adding and trying out Retribution of the Ancients. Just tweaking things here and there still. Came across Tireless Tracker today and thought he had some solid potential to help keep cards in my hand via the clue creation and meshes well with the deck due to getting a +1/+1 counter for each clue used. I also took a page out of Drestlin's book from his counter deck with Duskshell Crawler. I liked how they added a +1/+1 counter immediately in addition to granting trample. It felt better than the Abzan Falconer but is on thin ice. Lots of stuff I want to experiment with!

Chasmolinker - Just trying to learn from the master!

Before I make any additional changes, I need to playtest the deck as it current is and see how that feels. I shifted around like 10 or cards just the other day to make the deck how it current looks but I do want to play around with Retribution of the Ancients...you are not wrong that there are other effective removal spells but alot of them have negative side effects, CMC limitations, or just cost more. The idea was if I have +1/+1 counters to give, it would be a cheap way to clear the board and having slightly less powerful creatures would be worth it if the board is clear of threats...Although it was just a idea. I mean, I do have "Jank" as one of the hubs!

Scavenging Ooze does have a more permanent graveyard hate than anything I am currently running. It has some potential...thanks for that suggestion.

Cut down the Abzan Falconer in his triumphant flight!?! I could be convinced of that for more Luminarch Aspirant or something similar, Renegade Rallier, or if I add in this would be a great spot to make room for Winding Constrictor.
