Metallic Mimic

Artifact Creature — Shapeshifter

As this enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

This creature is the chosen type in addition to its other types.

Each other creature you control of the chosen type enters the battlefield with an additional +1/+1 counter on it.

Inspiring Call is also useless in this deck. +1/+1 counters stay on the creature for the rest of the game unless the counter is removed or the creature is removed. The +5/+5 from Augmenter Pugilist  Flip don’t count because they’re not counters, if your opponent removes your lands the +5/+5 is gone. Like I said, Gaea's Anthem is better or if you really want to keep Inspiring Call, you need cards that will give your characters +1/+1 counters like Metallic Mimic or anything similar that’s cheaper but have the same effect.

wallisface goodmorning , I was trying to build an aggro deck that could somewhat also defend the creatures or Just replace effectively the low cost creatures: the "win condition" here on turn 4 Is to drop a busted joraga warcaller with hardened scales or with Just extra counters tò It. For now In trying elves and Warrior for joraga + bramblewood paragon , i know its missing something creature wise , like Wren's Run Vanquisher feels like a filling that could've been a Better creature for the strategy , its Just that i cant find this creature ahah i could try to Just add Metallic Mimic or to try another build with . Metallic Mimic instead of bramblewood

By the way thank you for your thoughts , i Always appreciate

I’m still not really convinced that Hardened Scales fits in here, reasoning being:

  • you’re deck doesn’t look like its going to have any major issue with the power on-board

  • you deck wants to win the game quickly, because if the opponent can stabilise and kill your boardstate (or just out-race you) you’re in trouble. I don’t think any of your decks “quickest ways to deal 20 damage” involve the cards that just put counters on things, or Hardened Scales.

  • your lose condition is someone killing off your important creatures, which isn’t hard to do. By having cards that just add counters, you reduce the number of actual threats in the deck.

  • you’ve already restricted yourself to elves AND warriors, which gives you a super-narrow window for creature choices. I think this makes it significantly harder for scales, or the other cards that add counters, to be viable.

Again, i’d opt for more aggression. Metallic Mimic is probably a lot more useful for you than Hardened Scales, and outside of that i wouldn’t personally be focusing too heavily on counters.

We can see from existing stompy decks that they have almost all of their cards apply +1/+1 counters, but don’t bother with scales. Generally speaking, scales decks only work where you can abuse the counters for a reliable turn 3-or-4 kill.

Metallic Mimic might be a good add here.

Perhaps Metallic Mimic?

You could run 4x Hardened Scales complete the branchwalkers, add more Deeproot Elite, Vineshaper Mystic and Metallic Mimic. Then you have somewhat a monoG merfolk counters list... also... swap your basics for snow covered forests and play blizzard brawl

Love a good cat deck! You should check out Kaheera Cats and Chariots :3 by NonetheWeisser for some additional inspiration. Definitely one of the most competitive tribal cat decks out there and if I could toot my own horn my version of cat tribal focuses more on token creation but it is fairly potent non the less as well (Feline Feelings). Lots of good discussion in the comments of those two decks as many of the cards you are either playing or considering are in those. Might help you make some educated decisions if you were on the edge of playing one cat versus another.

Otherwise, it almost feels a bit like you are going for some +1/+1 counter synergy with this deck. Collective Effort and Unbreakable Formation are something I have played in +1/+1 counter decks and Ajani, Caller of the Pride provides another way to get counters while having some finishing moves as well. If that is the direction you are wanting, I would definitely recommend adding in a full playset of Metallic Mimic to bring cats in with +1/+1 counters and Hardened Scales to double that effect. Adding a few copies of Gavony Township might give you late game options as well. If that is not the direction you are wanting, I might suggest Dromoka's Command over Collective Effort. Slightly less potent and upside but cheaper and a bit more flexible. I would also suggest Heroic Intervention over Unbreakable Formation for the same reasons.

Also, you may want to look at the lands a bit. You only have 10 ways to generate a mana. Loam Lion is a beast if could add something like Temple Garden. Wooded Bastion would be a cheaper alternative if cost is an issue.

Anyway, hope something there was useful and happy brewing!
