Gnarlid Colony Discussion

Cool deck idea! I'd suggest bumping up Into the Roil and Inscription of Abundance to 4 each, since it's your only removal cards, plus Inscription is so versatile. Cards like Oran-Rief Ooze , Gnarlid Colony , and Wildwood Scourge are all good, even if you can't spend the extra mana on them. Dragonsguard elite doesn't seem quite as useful, but I haven't looked too much into the Strixhaven cards yet. Body of Research seems like a beast of a card but it might be difficult to play unless you change up your mana ratio. I haven't used some of the other cards so it's hard to give my opinion on them.

As for The Great Henge, The Ozolith, Heroic Intervention, Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Branching Evolution and so many other spicey - yet pricey - cards, please keep the description of the deck in mind. This deck is going to be a budget build to be an entry in a Secret Santa type thing. My playgroups' gentleman's agreement is ~30,00€/$40.00 maximum - plus cards that sit in our binders which we don't mind giving away.
Also, the deck's supposed to be played in a low powered pod, which we would score 3-4/10 by our metrics. The easiest way to do that is have most cards either fit the counters theme or one of the subthemes such as fighting instead of being generically good. Meaning, cards like Inspiring Call and Sporeback Troll fit a lot better than Heroic Intervention, Wrap in Vigor, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots and the likes.
I still have Tuskguard Captain and Bramblewood Paragon in a box somewhere. I might add them as extras. For the moment i think Champion of Lambholt, Gnarlid Colony and Pridemalkin should be plenty to enable hits.
I'm quite sure Longshot Squad is one of those boxes, too. It'll have to be an extra for now, since i won't know if the deck's even facing flyers until all Secret Santas are revealed. Nice catch though!
Hydra's Growth and Increasing Savagery have been on my mind as well, yet they fit Mowu, Loyal Companion so much better than the other interchangable commanders. Going wide and wild with counters is a lot more entertaining than just going big. Same goes for Managorger Hydra. Sure it's straight forward, but something like Forgotten Ancient can enable a variety of things - at half the price.
As for Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, there are only so few creatures that would trigger his second ability reliably at the moment: Bloodspore Thrinax, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Verdurous Gearhulk and Vigor. If i would be looking for creatures that do something similar to his first ability i'd propably consider Ivy Lane Denizen for its flexibility instead.
Anyhow, thanks again for your kind words and suggestions!
ps. MapPsycho thanks for your flattering words as well! :)

I like the deck and wg +1/+1 counters with sacrifice is nice.
Cards with escape like Loathsome Chimera, Voracious Typhon, and Sentinel's Eyes can be useful for you strategy, as they allow late-game recursion that also has +1/+1 counters on the creatures. Travel Preparations also can spread around +1/+1 counters.
Antler Skulkin can help with creature protection.

I couldn't tell you even if I spent an hour on the internet trying. Not that I did...
I personally like keeping this mono green. Straight to the point and never color screwed. A lot of the white combos look super strong but feel like 'win more' rather than 'get you there faster' to me.
I'd load that puppy up with Gnarlid Colonys too. Trample is amazing. Maybe drop the Khalni Ambush Flipes. With the choice lands you're at 24 and a mono green doesn't need that many with no landfall procs. You also have the fight target creature from Inscription of Abundance.
