Drestlin on G/W +1/+1 counters

2 days ago

Had some games today - felt terrible, i think the deck is losing his focus A LOT.

At this point i basically removed all the white creatures in favour of Portable Hole and 2 Gavony Township - i also DEFINITELY like Lifecrafter's Bestiary as both a passive scry every turn and the now and then draw: i think i need to go back to the origins and concentrate on green creatures more - even with 8 double lands i often find myself without the right mana to cast creatures, the first few turns: especially with training, not having more than the lonely initiate down, because i'm missing the 2 green to cast, is just pain. Might have to find space to put back the Pelt Collector Will have to decide eventually, but the deck felt smoother a few iterations ago, and definitely without the white creatures in (i literally have NEVER been able to train the Savior of Ollenbock ONCE in however many games - i managed to use the initiate ability today more than once for the first time - and he trained once). I feel like training, apart from being slow in general, is also too dangerous with the amount of deathtouch stuff i'm dealing with, and having the creature die to a 1/1 dt or stay a 1/2 forever because that's my main way of pumping him up just doesn't work.

I'll update the deck with the latest revision tomorrow, so you can lmk what you think!

p.s. i have the Luminarch Aspirant, i might try him around eventually!

I feel the proliferate is not quite as good as actually putting a +1/+1 counter as you have to have one in place to actually get the effect. I like it on Grateful Apparition, Huatli's Raptor, and Tezzeret's Gambit as it is an extra bonus on top of another main ability.

You also got to remember I play MTGO and things are usually like 10-50x cheaper! Karn's Bastion is only 0.03 cents and Gavony Township is only 0.02 cents via CardHoarder :) Some things are still tough to get in MTGO though like Esper Sentinel :( Don't get me wrong, I feel like player in person would be much more fun as I play casually and love to chat and commentate on the games but MTGO allows me to play around my toddler-centered-lifestyle and for a small fraction of the price of building a collection in paper. Pros and Cons...

I just noticed - i guess it doesn't matter too much since you probably already got it, but Karn's Bastion seems like a cheaper Gavony Township. True, it's populate and not put a +1/+1 but it's also cheaper :D

Drestlin - One of the other cards I am experimenting with is adding in a copy or two of Shalai, Voice of Plenty. I find that many times some of the creatures I boost with the counters are great targets for removal and this sorta helps counter that. Right now I have only a single copy of her in my deck and I have played her a few times, usually only to have her removed instead of another creature, lol. Plus I like her ability to add a +1/+1 counter to all my creatures if I lack a hand or Gavony Township.

JordoSmith14 I've done some brewing, and this is personally what i'd suggest trying as a +1/+1 counter GW decklist. I tried keeping it as "selesnya-feeling" as possible without sacrificing power.

TheReal_MtGHaystak - I forgot to say thanks for you land suggestions! Both of those are kinda interesting possibilities. I would love to get a copy or two of Boseiju, Who Endures to run just a little more potential removal but at 30 tix a pop, that is beyond my budget! Remember I said Collected Company was a investment at 5 tix! Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire has potential though...

Squirrelbacon - Ya, I reluctantly dropped Knight of the Reliquary back when I shifted things to fit in the Worthy Knight and Thalia's Lieutenant combo (which is pretty potent in a "tribal" knight deck made of almost all humans). You are not wrong that with only 2xGhost Quarters, the chances of getting it when needed will be super low without running Knight of the Reliquary but I would likely use its ability more often then spending 4 mana on Gavony Township's. I mean, playing its ability is significantly cheaper and would likely always at least annoy my opponent if nothing else right?

So I agree with the negative assessment of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar -- it's great in control and different style aggro decks but not for this list. Adding another miss to CoCo and having a slow anthem effect (albeit, a great one!) might just be too clunky here.

However, another suggestion for the deck would be to remove 1 Gavony Township and add in 1 Ghost Quarter/Field of Ruin. The main reason for you having a utility land or two in the deck is specifically to tutor it in certain scenarios with Knight of the Reliquary. Having multiple of these may hinder your mana development and result in rough top decks.

Another option for Gavony Township is to replace it with Katilda, Dawnhart Prime. I think it's worse overall, but you can hit it off of CoCo as a one-of if you desire.

Question to Viewers - Any thoughts on dropping Gavony Township in exchange for something like Ghost Quarter? I was looking around for a utility land that would fit in better and just was not seeing much so I thought maybe if I could not find one that helps me, maybe I could find one that provides a removal ability to delay or mana screw my opponent.
