Welcome to the Deckbuilders' Challenge originally created by sdfkjgh! To participate in this Contest you'll have to design a deck along the contest guidelines and throw it into the arena with other competitors' entries! At the end of every two weeks, a winner will be determined by forum poll, and the winner decides the challenge for the next fortnight's Contest!
Your deck cares about counters put onto permanents/players. Whether those are -1/-1, +1/+1, experience, verse, soot, menace, any kind of counters. Adding counters is an integral part of your game-plan.
Please provide a decklist using deckstats, tappedout or similar. Feel free to add some comments as they will be included in the final poll. Please provide a deck name as well as choose a card to represent your deck in the poll.
This is one of the first decks I built on MTGO, after playing against it. I asked the builder if I could feature it on the old site, and he said yes. Unfortunately, I can't remember which of the hundreds of friends on MTGO it was.
A MonoRed devotion deck that seeks to play a giant Balduvian Hydra or Rock Hydra and keep boosting its counters via the mana produced by Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to close out the game. In an emergency, we can play the Hydras for 3 mana to further boost devotion to Red.
