Loyal Guardian

Creature — Rhino


Lieutenant — At the beginning of combat on your turn, if you control your commander, put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.

Instead of having so many creatures that add counters I think you should have a few more creatures that benefit from a high power. More Trample would be the easiest. Flying, First Strike and Double Strike. Loyal Guardian should be in to add counters however.

Possibly Hateflayer, Mage Slayer, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin for more warm bodies

Something like Skanos Dragonheart gets a temporary boost that becomes a permanent boost to that Ambitious Dragonborn.

Scepter of Celebration, Sylvan Offering and other token producers would give you more creatures to take advantage of your cards that put counters on everything like Master Chef (and Loyal Guardian and Cathars' Crusade which i see in the maybe board).

I always like Hungering Hydra and Protean Hydra if you have something that pays for the X cost like Hamza (I have a Rosheen Meanderer and Animar, Soul of Elements)

let me just reiterate your card choices aren't wrong. these suggestions are going to be because maybe we have different play styles or different metas. like i really try to keep my removal as flexible as possible and my +1/+1 counter deck is atraxa . Armorcraft Judge its unreliable and is a bad top deck. Avatar of the Resolute it just doesnt scale well to edh. Custodi Soulbinders paying 3 mana just to make a 1/1 is'nt very exciting. Fertilid ive used this one alot and in my games i almost never used it to ramp it was just a vanilla creature.

Return to Dust is just awkward i much pefer Heliod's Intervention. Ruinous Intrusion 4 mana to blow up 1 artifact or enchantment isn't worth it even if does give you a few counters. Lifecrafter's Bestiary with so few creatures its not great. with more creatures in here it could be great. Celestial Judgment there will be games where it will give you the win but there will be games where someone just has something huge out that this just misses or youll have to blow up more of your own stuff then an opponents Hour of Reckoning this is only good in a token deck.

some replacements creatures. Park Heights Maverick, Loyal Guardian, Forgotten Ancient, Walking Ballista, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Steelbane Hydra, Evolution Sage, Conclave Mentor. non creatures Hardened Scales, Austere Command, Damning Verdict, Tome of Legends, Coalition Relic, Vastwood Surge

Nice! Glad you like the deck! Loyal Guardian is basically my budget Kalonian Hydra. If you can afford it I'd recommend that one.

Fracturing Gust looks to me like a building about to be destroyed. Its a shame everything with Extort is humanoid. I would have loved to see a Unicorn protection racket.

Purity has the look, Vigor is always amazing. Loyal Guardian = Fat Unicorn (but there is a HAND right there. I think the Rhox guys are too humanoid)
