I think you're looking for Arcbound Ravager, his other Arcbound Friends? And Servant of the Scale.

GollumWasFramed, Thanks for the up vote and the card ideas. Servant of the Scale sounds great. I haven't been working on fine tuning this deck yet, as I'm still trying to get my Pioneering Bant Blink deck ready for FNM. This will be the next deck I tune out.

Your username is awesome.

I’ve been playing a similar deck for awhile. Servant of the Scale has been an amazing 1 drop for me. Merfolk Skydiver is another really good piece for this. Easy plus 1.

Suns_Champion on Wait for the kicker - Hallar, the Firefletcher

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.

Here's a Deck you can also look at

@TallKanz211 - if you can find an EDH tournament with a cash prize, and then you enter and win multiple times...sure :)

@buttmaster420 (a classy username if there ever were one) - Hexdrinker , interesting. When I first read your comment I thought "that's dumb; he benefits from level counters, not +1/+1 counters!"... but then I thought about a hexproof unblockable creature buffed up by Ezuri, and a devilish grin crept across my face! I think I'll take out Servant of the Scale for it. Servant seems really good in a vacuum, but he really hasn't played as well as I had hoped (I usually never put counters on him, as I have better targets). Thanks for the suggestion! :D

Rhadamanthus on Would Rite of Passage cause ...

It would die before it gets the counter.

Rite of Passage triggers when Servant of the Scale is dealt lethal damage, but then right before that trigger is put onto the stack the game checks to see if any state-based actions (SBAs) need to be handled. Destroying a creature that's been dealt lethal damage is one of the game's SBAs, so the Servant will die before the Rite can give it another counter.

Yogei on Would Rite of Passage cause ...

As the title says, would Rite of Passage cause Servant of the Scale to distribute more +1/+1 counters when it dies from combat damage? In other words, if Servant of the Scale received lethal damage would it get extra +1/+1 counters first and then die or would it die and be removed from the battlefield before Rite of Passage triggers?
