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.

So many new exploratory bant commander applications, this is one of the combos I was most excited for, but really not into the UB stuff so gonna wait until they have mtg cards. Also your last comment is right about Ahau as far as I know.

For suggestions:

Surprised Seedborn Muse isn't on the list. Always good to have a backup plan if your commander is removed a lot, and more importantly SB Muse untaps all of your lands each turn. Without having enough mana flash alone often falls short in multiplayer games. Seedborn Muse will also help get your commanders out in a single round. To this end more cheap mana dorks would help like Delighted Halfling or Gyre Sage because they will untap each step with your commander.

You have a lot of things that give counters but not a lot of payoff, cards like Abzan Falconer and Zegana, Utopian Speaker come to mind.

Big fan of Inspiring Call in counter decks too.

I have a Bant token deck that has a lot of good small-guys-who-make-other-guys type cards like Aether Channeler, if you want to check it out for suggestions. Can't Catch Me, I'm the GingerBant Man! [Primer]

I see March of multitudes and flurry of wings, I've tried to run a lot of cards like that but I've found they almost always want to be played later in the game. If you want to have smaller pieces set up for before your commanders come out, cards like Aether channeler and mana dorks will go a long way. Creatures that make creatures will work better with the convoke theme as well. Very fun and original looking deck!

rwn1971 Emiel is one of my favorite decks. Outlast would be decent. I know I have run Tuskguard Captain in decks before, but I seem to always cut it for something more powerful that comes along. I just did a scryfall search to see what other outlast creatures would be available in these colors. Abzan Battle Priest, Abzan Falconer, and Arcus Acolyte could be helpful, but the main focus of the deck has been ETB creatures. The +1/+1 counters is more a sub-theme, which means I prioritize cards that add +1/+1 counters while also synergizing with Emiel's ability to blink them over and over. Hence, the inclusion of cards like Filigree Vector, Primeval Protector, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Champion of Lambholt, and Armorcraft Judge. Even Conclave Mentor, Cathars' Crusade, and Tribute to the World Tree get a lot stronger when I'm blinking one or more creatures over and over.

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.

multimedia on Optimus Prime Rolls Out!

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 …

1 year ago

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?

GioMontanari on Lae'Zel Master Chef +1/+1 counters

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

lhetrick13 on I'll Raise you +1/+1...

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!
