not enough creatures to make Winding Way playable enough. Most of the time you are going to hit 1 or even 0.

Travel Preparations could be cool, Pollenbright Druid is just a lord or enabler, same as Bloom Hulk. Maybe Basri's Acolyte or Aquastrand Spider?

Ainok Survivalist could be nice sb card.

Thanks for the advices!

Stonecoil Serpent seems really flexible and hard to deal with, i will surely try it out. But I really like the value of Aquastrand Spider when it gives multiples counters on new creatures entering the field with scales and Constrictor serpent already on the board.

Aether Hub is a budget version of what I would like to have for manabase. If I catch up nice lands like Blooming Marsh I would definitively cut it.

I also really want to try out Mindless Automaton for cards draw, but I'm afraid it will be too slow in modern.

Same thing for Hangarback Walker, I really like this card but maybe too awkward in this decklist. My deck is not really an artifact synergiser

For creatures, seems like you have the deck split three ways between graft, adapt, and evolve. I would recommend taking out the graft creatures like Plaxcaster Frogling and Aquastrand Spider , I just don't think graft is a very good mechanic. I would also take out Skatewing Spy , considering most of your creatures have either evasion or a relevant activated ability already. Also Feral Hydra feels like it's easily outclassed other cards. That's eight creatures out, 28 to begin with feels high, so maybe add a combination of 2-3 Lorescale Coatl and 2-3 Avatar of the Resolute . Also this one is just my opinion, but I feel like something like Verdurous Gearhulk could be a better finisher than Vorel of the Hull Clade , especially since your 3 drop slot is pretty packed and you curve out at 4.

For non-creature spells, Plasm Capture is a little bit too high costed and the payoff isn't too relevant to you, consider taking it out for another Cancel or Frilled Mystic , however you may just want to take out all the Cancel for Mana Leak s. If you took out eight creatures and only replaced 4-6, then you have room for some more spells like Incubation / Incongruity .

For land, add 2 either Temple of Mystery or Yavimaya Coast and take out the Thornwood Falls . Overall, looks decent and has an adaptive enough game plan to be fun (pun intended)

This looks like a blast to mess with! You might find Aquastrand Spider useful for helping your creatures deal with fliers.

Great start! You have pretty much all the good kicker cards. I think you could focus a bit more on the secondary theme of Hallar, which is +1/+1 counters. Hallar doesn't care where the counters come from, which means you don't actually need that many Kicker cards to make him deal tons of damage.

Hunger of the Howlpack is a great addition to the deck, being one of the most efficient counter-givers in Pauper.

Elven Rite, New Horizons and Soul's Might are all very efficient ways to get lots of counters on your Commander.

Mutant's Prey and Hunt the Weak are great removal spells for your deck that is chock-full of +1/+1 counters. Feral Contest also isn't bad.

Ivy Lane Denizen is a must have in this deck. You make plenty of tokens, which can either make Hallar massive or simply make your 1/1s into 2/2s, which is an incredible boost.

Longshot Squad gives most of your team reach. Aquastrand Spider also does it for a cost, but can also distribute counters. Spike Colony is a pretty beefy creature that can also give its counters to others. This can make combat very difficult for the opponent on top of all the synergy it gives naturally.

Horned Kavu is extremely useful in this deck, since it can re-buy so many of your ETB triggers for lots of value.

It's so hard to get card advantage in these colours. I would definitely play Entourage of Trest to try to keep up with Blue and Black decks. I also don't leave home without Rolling Thunder and Elven Cache in these colours as cards to catch you up in card advantage. You could also be running up to six cycling lands, namely Tranquil Thicket and Forgotten Cave. In terms of synergy, you could also go for Tishana's Wayfinder and Brazen Buccaneers.

I would also think about adding all the mediocre +1/+1 counter distributers, like Bond Beetle, Kujar Seedsculptor, Ironshell Beetle, Scrounging Bandar, Satyr Grovedancer.

Thrummingbird is a cheap repeatable enabler for proliferate.... Wanderer's Strike can be a decent spot removal enabler... Contagion Clasp / Contagion Engine are coulorless/repeatable enablers as well...maybe some graft crreatures like Aquastrand Spider / Plaxcaster Frogling or Llanowar Reborn as a land to put in?

I personally would switch out scrounging bandalar for Aquastrand Spider for the defense, or else Strangleroot Geist if you wanted to be more aggro. And Champion of Lambholt should probably be in there somewhere too. :)

Maybe Nature's Claim instead of Appetite for the Unnatural.

And if you want more aggro, i believe you could try some more small cost creatures.When i think of deathtouch i think of Setessan Tactics and Spider Umbra. Which could work together with those creatures.

Or, you could work on more draw cards like Harmonize.

Here is a example about small creatures for your deck: your Increasing Savagery could work with Aquastrand Spider, Scute Mob, Solidarity of Heroes, and maybe Forced Adaptation. Also, you could use another planeswalker like Nissa, Voice of Zendikar.

Hope it was useful.
