Mowu, Loyal Companion

Legendary Creature — Dog

Trample, vigilance

If one or more +1/+1 counters would be put onto Mowu, Loyal Companion, that many plus one +1/+1 counters are put on it instead.

Squee_Spirit_Guide ahah unfortunately i am keeping it somewhat budget :D The group i play with has an unspoken rule of not going too much overboard on single cards ahah.

Mowu, Loyal Companion seems a bit expensive for what it does (i mean, it's a selfish Conclave Mentor / Hardened Scales but a couple of Llanowar Reborn seem great!

If you aren't trying to keep the deck budget take a look at Walking Ballista and/or Hangarback Walker.

If you are trying to keep it budget I'm partial to Mowu, Loyal Companion :) Llanowar Reborn could be useful as a one- or two-of as well.

I really didn't want to play any of the new Elder Dragons. I pulled Tanazir in that sick full-alternate art...I might consider building him now.

Cards you might want to consider:

Simic Ascendancy

Inexorable Tide

Contagion Clasp


Everflowing Chalice

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

Mowu, Loyal Companion

Soul's Might

Galloping Lizrog

Vorel of the Hull Clade

Hey Bobs_Army & Elasar99 (great name btw!), thanks a lot for your input! I really appreciate it.

As for The Great Henge, The Ozolith, Heroic Intervention, Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Branching Evolution and so many other spicey - yet pricey - cards, please keep the description of the deck in mind. This deck is going to be a budget build to be an entry in a Secret Santa type thing. My playgroups' gentleman's agreement is ~30,00€/$40.00 maximum - plus cards that sit in our binders which we don't mind giving away.

Also, the deck's supposed to be played in a low powered pod, which we would score 3-4/10 by our metrics. The easiest way to do that is have most cards either fit the counters theme or one of the subthemes such as fighting instead of being generically good. Meaning, cards like Inspiring Call and Sporeback Troll fit a lot better than Heroic Intervention, Wrap in Vigor, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots and the likes.

I still have Tuskguard Captain and Bramblewood Paragon in a box somewhere. I might add them as extras. For the moment i think Champion of Lambholt, Gnarlid Colony and Pridemalkin should be plenty to enable hits.

I'm quite sure Longshot Squad is one of those boxes, too. It'll have to be an extra for now, since i won't know if the deck's even facing flyers until all Secret Santas are revealed. Nice catch though!

Hydra's Growth and Increasing Savagery have been on my mind as well, yet they fit Mowu, Loyal Companion so much better than the other interchangable commanders. Going wide and wild with counters is a lot more entertaining than just going big. Same goes for Managorger Hydra. Sure it's straight forward, but something like Forgotten Ancient can enable a variety of things - at half the price.

As for Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, there are only so few creatures that would trigger his second ability reliably at the moment: Bloodspore Thrinax, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Verdurous Gearhulk and Vigor. If i would be looking for creatures that do something similar to his first ability i'd propably consider Ivy Lane Denizen for its flexibility instead.

Anyhow, thanks again for your kind words and suggestions!

ps. MapPsycho thanks for your flattering words as well! :)

Why aren't you playing The Great Henge? It's a great card for this deck. Draw, +1+1 counters, life gain and acceleration, four effects in one card. Hydra's Growth in Mowu, Loyal Companion can be an overkill. Managorger Hydra can grow a lot in a 4 players game. Tuskguard Captain and Bramblewood Paragon can also be used as trample anthems for your creatures, and Longshot Squad to give them reach. The Ozolith can keep the counters of creatures that die so that you can pass them. Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig can be another interesting addition to the deck. Heroic Intervention and Wrap in Vigor can save your creatures in case of a boardwipe.

If you don't mind spending a bit of money you can also try Hardened Scales, Doubling Season or Branching Evolution

Cut down to 37 lands, I'd say. Probably...a Plains and a Forest?

Also. Hungry Lynx, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Bronzehide Lion, Fleecemane Lion, Leonin Warleader, Mowu, Loyal Companion, Ainok Bond-Kin, Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse.

You also need more removal. I'd recommend picking a few out of Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Nature's Chant, Return to Nature, Force of Vigor, Return to Dust. Those are single target creature/artifact/enchantment removal, mainly. You also need a bit of mass removal. I'd suggest something like Hour of Reckoning, Dusk / Dawn, Cleansing Nova, or Austere Command.

Scallywallwest Lightning Greaves will prevent you from attaching Equipments to Mowu, Loyal Companion, and might prevent you from casting some spells to grow Mowu. Thanks for the suggestion though.
