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

Dracoson on hardened scales and Marwyn, the …

Even assuming you put 5 tokens on the battlefield as the result of a single effect, each token entering will cause Marwyn, the Nurturer's ability to trigger. Each trigger would add a +1/+1 counter, which Hardened Scales makes into 2 counters. End result is that you get 10 counters.

Hi, if I have Hardened Scales in play and Marwyn, the Nurturer and then create 5 1/1 elf warrior tokens, will I put 10 +1/+1 counters on Marwyn, the Nurturer or 6?

I'm not sure if he's entirely what you want, but Pir, Imaginative Rascal does fun things with counters, rather like Hardened Scales, but affecting planeswalkers, too.

Ok so basically you want to build a landfall deck with +1/+1 counter synergies.

First off, there are some cards I recommend you cut since they don't add enough to your gameplan. Commune with Nature is a decent dig spell but it's probably better to just pack more threats instead and cut them. Reclaim the Wastes and Vastwood Surge synergize well with the deck but are unfortunately just not that great cards. The other cards I'd cut are Broken Wings, Sudden Spinnerets, and Vines of Vastwood.

I'd add some better removal in Path to Exile, maybe Prismatic Ending with a single Indatha Triome.

Undergrowth Champion is a fun card. More Hardened Scales and Conclave Mentor can multiply +1/+1 counters.

Ram Through > Rabid Bite

I don't see why you shouldn't go 4x Hardened Scales. Also I'd drop Llanowar Elves for a full playset of Utopia Sprawl.

Gyre Sage seems like another funny ramp option here. And I'd definitely move the Kalonian Hydra from maybeboard to mainboard it's just such a must-answer threat.

This is really excellent, but it could do with some Hardened Scales .

Blade of Selves and Rite of Replication both 100% need spots here asap. Below is Copied/Pasted from my own list.

Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Little Rey of Ishine (Reyhan/Ishai 2.7 cmc)


Mathing is Hard! All math based on 4 players and for the Blade of Selves combo found in the next section, plus the cards listed in each section below. Special thanks to Gidgetimer for help with the math!

Note: Master Biomancer and Bramblewood Paragon need to be figured separately as they only add counters when Reyhans enter, not when she moves counters. Good-Fortune Unicorn doesn't work with the below combos.

6x3=18 counters in 6 increments of 3 counters.

I really like the deck. I would suggest Hardened Scales to make your bears even bigger. You’re also hurting for card draw, so you may want to consider adding a Beast Whisperer to whisper to your bears…
