Personally, I would recommend Copy Artifact . This thing is useful at any stage of the game. Copy a Sol Ring or a Blightsteel Colossus , all just 2 mana.

Arachnogenesis would fit in this deck well, you are already running Selfless Squire and I think the pair would go a long way.

Song of the Dryads has helped me with various nuisance commanders.

Hangarback Walker just feels right in this deck. At most stages of the game, I am never unhappy to see it.

I think (Don't quote me) that a 2:1 ratio between Tokens producers and token Enhancers is a good starting point.

Here are some suggestions to up the number of stand alone token production that you should consider:

Secure the Wastes - It's and instant!

Tendershoot Dryad - Tokens EVERY upkeep

Martial Coup - Board wipe with upside, sometimes.

Hooded Hydra - Flexible

Arachnogenesis - A personal pet card, no one see's it coming. Kinda stand alone, requires you to be attacked

Imperious Perfect - Low drop with a very nicely costed ability

Wolfbriar Elemental - Pretty underestimated

Verdant Force - very high costed, but another every upkeep effect

Ant Queen - pretty bad creature, but an abusable, cheap mana sink

Trostani Discordant - Homeward path on a stick that pumps and makes tokens

Jade Mage - Meh, but its an early token producer if you need it. Late game it can be abused too.

You are severely lack card draw and there are a few abusable cards for tokens:

Collective Unconscious

Shamanic Revelation

Slate of Ancestry

Skullmulcher

Regal Force

Be careful with how many of these you put in since they rely on your board.

There are safer ramp options, in my opinion, in green:

Farseek - Can take the place of Selesnya Signet

Nature's Lore - Can replace Talisman of Unity

Kodama's Reach - Can Replace Commander's Sphere I say replace, but you can always up your ramp suite by a couple cards instead.

What a great and terribly annoying idea! I hate the logistics of keeping track of tokens if you don't have them printed out or have actual card copies of each of the tokens. But the theme still works, and the idea is legit. That said, where are the spiders, man!? Gotta represent. Consider Penumbra Spider or Renowned Weaver (or both, since they produce different spiders). You can also get some sick spider tokens out from Arachnogenesis to stop attackers in their tracks and maybe get some kills. Also, Wingmate Roc would work here, giving you some power in the air and a token that would be a great target for populate. But this deck is still sick without these. Props to you.

@Vman — That's such a good trick to know! Thanks! I did playtest GSZ + Arbor, but quickly realized that GSZ's effect of being shuffled into the library is actually a bad thing in this deck.

I also wanted to let you know that I playtested Mishra's Bauble and liked it a lot. I'm still just struggling to figure out what variation of this deck to go with.




@vecna101 — There's actually a couple others: Arachnogenesis and Ash Barrens . Both of those cards are integral to the deck and can't be cut, so it wouldn't be quite so easy to change it to Modern-legal.




@Daedalus19876 and ChaosJester — A while back you guys gave some feedback on my previous version of this deck. I'd love it if you check this version out and help me with some of the many decisions I have to make!
