It’s fun having 6/6 creatures, but not paying for them – the solution? Build your own! Your creatures bulk up turn-by-turn and creature-by-creature.

This is my version of the Selesnya counters deck. Botanical brawlers is the central card, supported by Benalish Knight-Counselor, Ozolith, Agatha’s Cauldron, Simian Simulacrum, Clay Champion, Defiler of Vigor, and Gruff Triplets.
Also taking advantage of counters are Dusk Legion Duelist & Kami of Whispered Hope.
There are a lot of options for substitutions here – Quirion Beastcaller, Enduring Bondwarden, Boon-Bringer Valkyrie, and Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines jump to mind. Spellbook vendor also works nicely in the deck, though not directly in the theme of the deck. It should replace a 3-drop, as it really is a turn 3 play on curve.
Since the deck has so many 2-drops that are intended to be played later (Ozolith, Cauldron, Ossification), it adapts fairly well to being mana bound. I’m considering cutting down the lands a bit, but that would likely mean dropping the triplets.
If you found the deck helpful, please give it a like & subscribe for updates!
