Karn's Bastion Discussion
2 weeks ago
With cards such as Solemnity and Melira, Sylvok Outcast out there, resistance to counters is an inevitable problem. That is why I suggest cards with just poison as the ability such as Sabertooth Cobra and Virulent Sliver in addition to what you already have. These cards offer regular life loss as well as poison counters so its not an immediate capitulation if Solemnity or MSO enter the battlefield. While it doesn't specifically say poison, Fynn, the Fangbearer can give creatures with deathtouch, poison 2. You can boost this ability by adding Archetype of Finality to your deck.
Another card I hope you will consider is Ram Through . Since creatures with trample place their remaining damage after killing a creature onto a player, this will add extra poison counters--especially if they have infect and deathtouch.
Plus, in case one of your opponents grabs one of your creatures, you may want to consider any combination of Nesting Grounds and Power Conduit to remove -1/-1 counters and/or move around +1/+1 counters.
Another land to take into consideration is Karn's Bastion since it allows Proliferation.

Also since your deck works slightly around +1/+1 counters, it would be good to expand this a bit. A few cards that could help with this would be Solidarity of Heroes , Kalonian Hydra , Doubling Season , Bioshift , Karn's Bastion , Sword of Truth and Justice , Primordial Hydra .

Have you considered Karn's Bastion ? If you replace Shivan Reef and Underground River with them it should give you some extra army boost.
Also, if you replace 2 copies of Evolving Wilds with a copy each of Fabled Passage and Terramorphic Expanse it will leave your deck slightly less vunerable to spells that allow you to go through your zones to exile all your cards of the same name.
Personally, I'd replace Honor the God-Pharaoh with Contentious Plan You draw fewer cards but you don't have to discard and the proliferate also boosts your planeswalkers.

I don't know if it was intentional or not but you have quite a few creatures that care about counters. Thus, there might be a place for ways to take advantage of that here. Proliferators including Contagion Clasp , Karn's Bastion , and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician come to mind. Some other zombie cards in that vein might be Carrion Feeder , Skinrender , or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet . Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is a little awkward with the +1/+1 theme. On one hand, he does dish out more counters when he brings some of your guys back for more action. On the other, his undying buff doesn't even apply to 3 of the deck's biggest hitters (in Diregraf Colossus , Unbreathing Horde , and Noosegraf Mob ). I think the single copy is a fair compromise, but I think testing both more and less would be interesting. If you're only looking to play around the tokens, Death Baron , Cemetery Reaper , and Cryptbreaker have proven effective for me, at least in EDH.

Really nice deck! First of all, you diserve an upvote for the name alone.
Second: the deck is well-built, just playtested it. My only idea would be proliferate, however it's more of a thing as far as I know. Karn's Bastion maybe?

Well since you are doing thallids with spore counters I would recommend leaning into Proliferate. Cards like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Evolution Sage, and Plaguemaw Beast can help you continue to proliferate all your spore counters or wahtever other counters you have every turn.
You might even consider adding Umezawa's Jitte.
Sac outlets that can benefit you are always good. Greater Good
Am I heading in the right direction here? Let me know if you like those suggestions.

If you want to keep her in the Bant deck I would just add some proliferate sources, especially since they fit with your commander for the deck anyway, and your real reason for including her here is her ULT anyway.
There are other options, these are just easily reusable outlets to consider.
If this seems like too much work, then yeah, I would just cut her out and fill in something that seems a better fit overall.
