Evolution Sage

Creature — Elf Druid

Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)

There's also 38 cards in the game with "Proliferate" on them, like Evolution Sage, which can all put one loyalty counter on every planeswalker you control.

I'd say Ajani Unyielding's -2 is more of a Swords to Plowshares than a Path to Exile.

That's a wicked cool combo Ramble! I'll remember it if I ever build Ezuri, Claw of Progress. If counter storm is what we are going with, cards like the aforementioned Ezuri, lots of proliferate cards likeEvolution Sage, Flux Channeler, and Karn's Bastion. Cards like Hadana's Climb  Flip, and payoffs like Sage of Hours, which goes infinite with Ezuri. Having sone ways to blibk Toothy like with Conjurer's Closet or Thassa, Deep-Dwelling are good too.

let me just reiterate your card choices aren't wrong. these suggestions are going to be because maybe we have different play styles or different metas. like i really try to keep my removal as flexible as possible and my +1/+1 counter deck is atraxa . Armorcraft Judge its unreliable and is a bad top deck. Avatar of the Resolute it just doesnt scale well to edh. Custodi Soulbinders paying 3 mana just to make a 1/1 is'nt very exciting. Fertilid ive used this one alot and in my games i almost never used it to ramp it was just a vanilla creature.

Return to Dust is just awkward i much pefer Heliod's Intervention. Ruinous Intrusion 4 mana to blow up 1 artifact or enchantment isn't worth it even if does give you a few counters. Lifecrafter's Bestiary with so few creatures its not great. with more creatures in here it could be great. Celestial Judgment there will be games where it will give you the win but there will be games where someone just has something huge out that this just misses or youll have to blow up more of your own stuff then an opponents Hour of Reckoning this is only good in a token deck.

some replacements creatures. Park Heights Maverick, Loyal Guardian, Forgotten Ancient, Walking Ballista, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Steelbane Hydra, Evolution Sage, Conclave Mentor. non creatures Hardened Scales, Austere Command, Damning Verdict, Tome of Legends, Coalition Relic, Vastwood Surge

A couple cards I might recommend to counter your friends' decks would be as follows:

Rest in Peace--My reasoning here is that I think it's okay to run something like this while still having cards in your deck that bring things back from the graveyard. This will probably get targeted if your friend needs it gone badly enough.

Solemnity--By my count, this only negatively affects four cards in your deck: Polis Crusher, Evolution Sage, and your two Saga enchantments. It seems like it would be a must answer obstacle for your other friend's deck, and it won't break the bank.

I think i just stumbled onto something. Hardened Scales + Evolution Sage + Fertilid - am i missing something?

it's either they remove it, or next turn you have a +alot/+alot, it fixes any mana you want (as long as it's basic) and you have 20 mana to play around on your next turn. You can even do it on 5 mana on the same turn it comes down.

You are welcome, same goes for you lhetrick13!

I guess i will have to invest in a set of Evolution Sage, since i already have some ramp stuff...at this point i have cards for 3 +1/+1 counters decks, every single one different than the other ahahahah

Hmmm...that is a good point regarding Harrow. I feel like 3 CMC is a steep price to pay for essentially getting one additional land but it would have a nice nitch for getting land in your graveyard or getting for a landfall deck. Heck, even just helping remove some of the lands out of your deck to ensure better draws, lol. It also has some decent synergy with Evolution Sage or something like that as her ability triggers whenever a land enters the field under your control...I was thinking about it and that would also ring true for fetch lands as well...so she might have more merit than I originally thought if I reshaped my deck slightly and added things in like Harrow. Landfall abilities are so much easier to trigger than relying on a particular creature doing damage like Grateful Apparition in my opinion. I am just waiting till May to make any additional card purchases...I have my self-imposed budget and like to stick to it but you have been giving me lots of ideas to try out! Thanks for that!

Drestlin - Ya, I saw Tezzeret's Gambit this morning and immediately added it to my cart as that it the essence of what I need in my deck. Throw out some extra +1/+1's AND draw cards...perfection!

Let me know how Huatli's Raptor works for you. I do love how for only 2 mana you get a 2/3 creature and get to proliferate. Compare that to like Basri's Solidarity and it looks really good. I just wish you could activate it more than once but that would be asking a lot from a 2 CMC card that is also a creature with decent initial stats and vigilance.

You are not wrong about Evolution Sage. I feel like it would work in both our decks but you would not be maximizing its ability. We are both running 3xEnter the Unknown but I feel like I would want to get some copies of Ordeal of Nylea to get some additional ramping in the deck and built it more around Evolution Sage to really make her worth adding. Lately I feel like I am drawing >50% of my lands each game so it seemed like a great ideal at the time!
