I really like Ordeal of Nylea in this. Makes me think of putting it in my korvold deck and maybe my Animar, Soul of Elements .

Some thoughts. I think you want to build this as an aggro stompy deck - as it’ll want to close the game out early.

From a competitive modern standpoint, i don’t think the following cards you’re running are worth it:

  • Inscription of Abundance is kindof good but maybe better as a sideboard option against decks where you need to fight creatures to death. I think this mostly just doesn’t get enough value.

  • Selesnya Charm doesn’t do enough for you.

  • Inspiring Call gets you good card draw, but doesn’t apply pressure, and will likely give your opponent enough breathing room to stabilise

  • Incubation / Incongruity isnt good imo, you want to be applying pressure every turn in the form of creatures.

  • Tezzeret's Gambit is again, useful, but slow. I don’t think its worth it in this build.

  • Hardened Scales i don’t think fits here, just cause its not a creature that can swing for damage.

  • Ordeal of Nylea ... if it’s not Rancor it ain’t worth running. Auras are generally bad cause they turn your opponents killspells into bombs. Play Rancor instead cause you get it back.

  • Ajani, the Greathearted it waaay too slow to be useful.

I think what you want is more creatures that can threaten the opponent, as well as trample in the form of Rancor , and a quick-finish combat trick in the form of Aspect of the Hydra

Personally, I think voltron strategies are some of the most cost effective for a beginning budget player.

A commander like Skullbriar, the Walking Grave can be tuned to be competitive at any table and does especially well in duels.

A lot of his best cards like Evolutionary Escalation Feast on the Fallen Hydra's Growth Ordeal of Nylea Biogenic UpgradeSoul's Might Ring of Kalonia FireshriekerWinding Constrictor Corpsejack Menace and many others are cheap.

My deck is not budget, but you could replace the most expensive 30 cards with budget friendly alternatives and still have a deck that stomps most tables. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/15-09-20-skullbriar-the-walking-grave/

Crow-Umbra on Twice the Enchantments, Twice the Fun

I think your deck has a solid start, but could benefit from having a few more enchantments. Personally, I think you could cut all of your artifacts, or at least the ramp artifacts, and include a few more enchantments like Weirding Wood, Wolfwillow Haven, Utopia Sprawl, or Unbridled Growth.

I'm not sure what your budget is like, but a few really helpful Auras are Rancor, Aspect of Mongoose, and Whip Silk, since they can all be replayed multiple times. Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea can both be helpful and pop-off early since your creatures will likely already have counters on them.

Simic Sky Swallower is okay as a beefy body, but can't be enchanted. You might be better off with something like Nylea's Colossus or Prime Speaker Zegana, both of which synergize with enchantments & counters.

If you're interested, check out my Eutropia deck, WAP- Wet Ass +1/+1 Counters. I built mine more around +1/+1 counter synergies with Auras.

Hey cool tribe! I'd suggest addding some more auras to help trigger Nyx Herald and Lagonna-Band Trailblazer. Ones that would put +1/+1 counters on your creatures like Forced Adaptation, Ordeal of Heliod, and Ordeal of Nylea might help. Then you might be able to play a couple of Chronicler of Heroes.

Get rid of Unearth and Zombify and replace them with Reanimate and Animate Dead. I really like some of your choices like Ordeal of Nylea, super good with the ability to sac it right away. A few other cards in here I'm contemplating adding to my build as well but the usual struggle of what to take out is always the hardest part. Cool deck,+1! Thanks for checking out my build and upvoting, I appreciate it!

Okay buddy here we go!

I think we need to fix a lot of things here. Ramp is an easy fix, we'll get some more instant/sorceries that get lands because they are safest. Then we'll work on getting more counters on Hallar in more efficient ways. We'll also swap out some of your kicker spells for other kicker spells that do better things.

Cards to look at:

Cards to maybe cut

So with all that I hope you're mana will be more consistant and your draw will be more powerful, then you'll be able to dump more counters on Hallar and snipe some wins. If not, your kicker spells will have more impact because they'll draw or remove or ramp. Focus on the 2cmc ramp cards, then swap out the kicker spells, then get those draw cards in there.
