Branching Evolution

Enchantment

If one or more +1/+1 counters would be put a on a creature you control, twice that many +1/+1 counters are put on that creature instead.

hello rakdosrunner!!

i really enjoyed the enforce that u had describing the deck and the mechanics.

i'm playing Lathiel for a long long time and i'm updating him a lot since then.

all the cards that u described i alredy test it, some of then still in the deck but mostly i had cut from the deck in order to be fastier and be more "Go for the troat" (my playgroup dont play easy haha).

firstly i wanna say the awesome cards that i wouldn't dare to touch that u metion before: Aetherflux Reservoir Authority of the Consuls Mangara, the Diplomat True Conviction Worldly Tutor Teferi's Protection Ozolith, the Shattered Spire Branching Evolution Light of Promise Well of Lost Dreams Scholar of New Horizons Tribute to the World Tree Esper Sentinel

it took me a long time to get this deck better and i still getting some frustations but if you like to consider, here some tips of cards to be implemented in order to have a better experience with it: ( mostly of this cards i proxed it because i dont wanna spend a lot of money and because i dont have a headache changing they every 2 months when wizards bring some new things )

starting with the nasty combos :

God Mode ( infinity mana + infinity draw :D ) : Argothian Elder or Priest of Titania + Quirion Ranger+ Ashaya, Soul of the Wild + Beast Whisperer with Eternal Witness in the deck u can even cast your grave again

Lathiel Gatling Gun: Walking Ballista + Heliod, Sun-Crowned or Cleric Class

“Life moves pretty fast..” — Ferris Bueller’s Spike Feeder + Light of Promise

ramp : Marwyn, the Nurturer : counters will get him a good ramp Mirari's Wake : awesome ramp Land Tax: can save you in early game Burgeoning : get ahead Priest of Titania : every elf in the battlefield Exploration : get ahead again Arbor Elf : very good with Selesnya Sanctuary or some mana that u need Mana Reflection: awesome ramp Circle of Dreams Druid : gaeas crandle in creature Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx : why not ? proxy <3 Crop Rotation: get those good lands in battlefield Carpet of Flowers: very good against 2 or more people Smothering Tithe : just perfect

draw : Generous Patron: our green budget risky study, perfect in lathiel Guardian Project : good in general The Great Henge : we have big creatures so probably will cost onle 2 green mana Toski, Bearer of Secrets : unstapable, can't be countered and draw Archivist of Oghma: meh... sometimes good sometimes not, but its 2 mana

tutors: Finale of Devastation : go for the troat Enlightened Tutor: very good tutor in our deck Eladamri's Call : get those pieces that u need Fauna Shaman : get those pieces that u need Defense of the Heart: this is funny, but moste of times works haha Yisan, the Wanderer Bard : good in general Natural Order : to the battlefield! Primal Command : say goodbye to ur grave zombie players

utility: Akroma's Will: defense or end game Alhammarret's Archive : it's 5 mana, but double life gain and double draw Eternal Witness : u have awesome cretures that people wanna destroy so... also good piece of combo God Mode Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines : Hushbringer + Hardened Scales, but better Serra Ascendant: sooooo goood in this deck ... first piece to be tutored by yisan, the wanderer bard Angel of Destiny: go for the troat Ashaya, Soul of the Wild: combo, but also a big creature Overwhelming Stampede : go for the troat Walking Ballista: good in general andd combo Cleric Class: combo but also grave Spike Feeder : Snowball effect, one of the best synergy of lathiel, 'each turn' change counters for life/

Good interactions : Aura Shards , Force of Vigor 2 ducks 1 shot ,Farewell exile :) , Kenrith's Transformation (interaction with draw)

Mortlocke I appreciate the feedback on the Primer! I could probably do with a clean up with my all my primers, not just this one haha. I like explaining my card choices to any curious viewers, but I've also found that writing out a Primer and fleshing it out gives me a better understanding of my own deck. By forcing myself to write out a description of the card and its various functions in the deck, it forces me to think more critically about their presence in the deck, rather than 'Hey, I like this card!' haha.

Doubling Season is a perfect example of that. It synergizes well enough, but for its mana cost, I'd rather play something else in this deck that can take full advantage of the card. Branching Evolution would be a better fit currently, I just don't have one yet. Same with Ozolith, the Shattered Spire. If I end up adding Brimaz, Blight of Oreskos, I'll have to think more carefully about adding Doubling Season back in.

Thanks again for taking a look!

UltimateRoxas40 i'm always glad to see another Atraxa build as there is always something to learn from someone else's ideas. You have a great primer that goes into great detail, but perhaps a bit too much detail. Instead of discussing every individual card choice, maybe highlight them as combo pieces? For example:

[[Ezuri, Claw of Progress + Forgotten Ancient]]

I think it would read a bit better and really highlight card combinations. I see that your deck really leans into the +1/+1 counters, have you considered Ozolith, the Shattered Spire, Branching Evolution, or maybe even Doubling Season? The first two have great synergy with a good number of cards already in the deck - the aforementioned Ezuri, Forgotten Ancient, Simic Ascendancy, Sword of Truth and Justice, and Biophagus just to name a few. I only mention Doubling Season because you mentioned you want to dip into the Incubate mechanic via Brimaz, Blight of Oreskos. Not only will you get double the tokens, but you also get double the +1/+1 counters placed on said artifact tokens.

qbaq84 Thank you! I do like Skyshroud Elf, but for the moment I am trying to keep the creature ramp to a minimum. I have a lot of 2-drops for ramp at the moment, but only 3 one drops, so I like Avacyn's Pilgrim a little bit more, and Skyrshroud is only green-specific ramp with added fixing at a cost. That said, I'll keep it in mind!

Also, I did make some changes just now: All Will Be One is back in the deck, I decided it really earned it's place due to it's removal capability (not for damage against an opponent).

Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder are out ... they weren't performing as strong individually, though they had a nice infinite combo. AWB1 adds two infinite combos in their place.

Also added Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider and Branching Evolution, two more counter doublers. I removed Parallel Lives as it was a remnant from when I had more tokens in the deck and somehow missed removing it.

Took out Wood Elves as well, just not enough forests to justify it, and if anything I'd rather search for plains or mountains since we have more green lands anyhow.

Lastly, we added Doubling Season ... I don't actually own the card yet, but it's simply the best card for this deck, period. I will be getting one very soon. Until then, I added a Primordial Hydra to the deck.

Since Managorger Hydra has been suggested I feel honorbound to also suggest his older cousin Forgotten Ancient. A little more expensive, but more shenanigan-able. For instance with Branching Evolution

And since Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx has been suggested, allow me to suggest Rushwood Elemental & Chlorophant to make the most of the devotion. Also Garruk Wildspeaker goes great with it, and well with Wild Growth.

Your profile says you're a newer player, so if you're looking for more budget friendly generic ramp options (Nykthos is kinda pricey) Nature's Lore is pretty hard to beat for pure early value, Migration Path is 4 mana, but it's never dead.

Oh, also maybe Bioshift

I will always have a soft spot for lifegain decks. They may not be the most competitive but they remind me of when I started playing the game with the M19 Ajani planeswalker deck. They just make me smile. :)

I do have some recommendations, though:

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice might be worth looking into. Works really well with all the big creatures in the deck.

Branching Evolution is probably a "win more" kind of card but it still could be worth checking out, at least.

Sigarda's Splendor might offer some more card draw if needed. Might be a bit of a pain to keep track of on paper, though (I mainly use it in Arena).

Test of Endurance is another lifegain wincon. If you wait another month or so, its price will come down because it's getting reprinted in Dominaria Remastered. There's a borderless, full art version, too!
