Kenrith, the Returned King Discussion

Phostration on Selesnya Counters

Wildwood Scourge synergizes very well with anything that is receiving counters. Kenrith, the Returned King is a great creature in his own right while also providing life gain and counter addition at pretty low mana costs. The Great Henge is an expensive card but provides for instant +1/+1 counters when your creatures enter the battle field, card draw, mana, and life gain all in one neat package. I would recommend only one Great Henge and one or two Kenriths due to them being legendary. I would recommend limiting your The Ozolith to 1 or 2 since they are legendary and drawing more than 1 can be redundant ESPECIALLY if they have no artifact removal. Keep them on sideboard for when you are playing against someone who does.

There is absolutely no reason you should not have at least one The Ozolith in this deck. If you want some late game vigor I would suggest 1 Vigor or 2 if you want to be spicy. If you are willing to be a big spender, I would definitely recommend The Great Henge and Sword of Truth and Justice as well. If you want to be more creature based, Kenrith, the Returned King has lots of good utility and fits the deck. I also agree with the suggestion of 4 birds of paradise. All of my suggestions are from my own +1/+1 Counters Deck.

The new Brash Taunter works well as the nasty french men. I have been planning on doing some alters to a deck that I am building that is very similar. Using Kenrith, the Returned King as my commander. Some other cards that I found:

A versatile deck or one that always plays different sounds like a deck that is just a bunch of good stuff. A deck that works well with its commander but doesn’t need it. This makes me think of Kenrith, the Returned King, Yarok, the Desecrated and partner commanders. The commanders supplement the strategy, but sometimes the cards you have in hand are just more interesting than your commander at the moment.

Kenrith, the Returned King could be really fun as a Boros Commander. Haste and trample for ? Gain 5 life for ? Cards like Archangel of Thune would appreciate that.

Splash blue for just the lands and a few counterspells so you also have reliable (though costly) draw, too.

So like Jeskai lands but a Boros frame with incredibly minor blue support for countering and draw.

This are the staple cards you need to get.
