Bones, Slugs, & Harmony

Black/Green/Blue Proliferate Counters

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard by Chase Stone

Now tell me whatcha gonna do

when there ain’t no where to run (tell me what)

(When judgment comes for you, when judgment comes for you)

And whatcha gonna do

when there aint no where to hide (tell me what)

When judgment comes for you (Cause it’s gonna come for you)

The immortal words of the bards remind us that death is always near. It may come slow as a slug or silent as an ooze, but it will always be hard and sharp as a bone!

Bones, Slugs, & Harmony is all about counters! Use Inexorable Tide, Evolution Sage, Fuel for the Cause, and Contagion Clasp to proliferate counters of every kind: harmony counters for Instrument of the Bards, verse counters on Yisa, Requiem, Dirge, and Revel, wish counters for the Wishclaw Talisman, slime counters for Toxrill and the Sludge Monster, -1/-1 counters courtesy of Skeleton Ship and Skithiryx, poison counters for your opponent, charge counters for your vivid lands, and don’t forget the classic +1/+1 counters for basically everyone else! That’s a lot of counters to keep track of, but don’t worry, it won’t be for long. Soon the Inexorable Tide of death will swallow your opponent and we’ll all meet again at the Haunted Crossroads.

See you at the crossroads …
