Ant Queen Discussion
4 days ago
cuckfamilo I've been playing with the deck quite a bit recently, and it's performed fantastically. The most recent set of net changes (-1 Ant Queen -1 Sensei's Divining Top +1 Summoner's Pact +1 Worldly Tutor) have been a big success in upping the overall consistency while trimming the "fat" (cards that were a little too awkward tempo-wise to justify in the first place). The deck continues to be fast, consistent, and most importantly resilient (I recently won a game on turn 4 that involved Cradle, Earthcraft, and Kozilek all getting exiled).

0/10: clear theme, no jank : )
Some semi-budget suggestions:
Camaraderie could be sick card draw.
Emrakul's Evangel could upgrade 1/1 tokens.
Phyrexian Rebirth consolidates power and is good to populate, but leaves you vulnerable to a single kill spell.
Skittering Invasion might be good in some situations, if you can copy the tokens and use them as mana receptacles.

Boza Thanks! Should remove the insect tribal because it Was one at the beginning but it did not turn out as I would have liked :/ Now it Focuses a lot more on +1 counters and I really like that playstyle. Ant Queen Was in the Deck and it really should still be in there so I will try to make space for it.

Hi! I am building a Mazirek deck too (Mazirek Bodybuilder)!
Like your build - insect tribal is a nice idea!

For additional token generation we would recommend Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Kazandu Tuskcaller, Imperious Perfect, Avenger of Zendikar, Ant Queen, Living Hive, Beacon of Creation and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury.
Aside from these things, we would also recommend Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Krosan Grip and/or Aura Shards for some more control. Maybe some additional draw options like Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Slate of Ancestry and Beacon of Creation.
For any further ideas, feel free to check out our Rhys deck. Good luck and have fun.

Given our convo regarding the focus of this deck being 'All the Tokens', this may be a long write-up. I'll try to break it up. This comment will look at creatures.
The great: Armada Wurm, Hornet Queen, Jazal Goldmane, Mycoloth, Seedborn Muse, Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Tendershoot Dryad, Wilt-Leaf Liege, Wolfbriar Elemental. Each of these support your strategy directly and have early & late game presence.
The Bad: Archon of Valor's Reach doesn't fit with the strat and feels like a 'win-more' or 'lockout' card, Emmara Tandris insulating tokens (the one thing you can make endless amounts of anyway) from damage doesn't seem like it's worth 7 mana/a whole turn to do, Kazandu Tuskcaller is a 1/1 you need to sink 6 mana into before you can get a single 3/3 per turn, Yeva, Nature's Herald only has relevance early game and she doesn't really fit with tokens.
The Ugly: Copperhorn Scout is a very fragile '1-turn' kind of creature and there are better/more efficient ways to accomplish this like Brave the Sands for example, Elvish Mystic & Fyndhorn Elves & Llanowar Elves having ramp on creatures like these is simply not the way you want to ramp.
The only ones left I believe ate your 2 Soul Wardens. They could/will/do gain a bunch of life, so if that is important then keep them.

Boza, I like cards that synergize with themselves; for example, Cradle of Vitality, Boon Reflection, and Wound Reflection all require additional cards for their abilities to work, but Archangel of Thune, Rhox Faithmender, and Archfiend of Despair all have syngery with themselves because they do not require other cards for their abilities to function.
MWorl91, I actually completely missed that one card was an instant and the other a sorcery; if I had noticed that, I would not have even needed to ask that question.
Also, power should determine rarity, not the other way around (that would be akin to saying that the rating of a movie determines its content, when it is actually the content that determines the rating).
dbpunk, yes, but, in general, creatures and cards that relate to creatures have been becoming more powerful as time has passed; for example, creatures such as Woolly Thoctar, Terra Stomper, and Gigantosaurus would have been inconceivable in the early days of this game, but apparently are nothing unusual, now, so I would expect cards that generate creature tokens to become more mana-efficinent, with Luminarch Ascension and Ant Queen being excellent examples of that.
