If you're looking for token gen options, there are a bunch of cards you can consider:


Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Xenagos, the Reveler : Xengos can be particularly good in a token deck because his +1 can get you massive mana.


Creakwood Liege , Hooded Hydra , Krenko, Mob Boss : Hooded hydra is a lot better than it seems. It acts like a token/sac bomb in my Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck (which used to be a Shattergang deck) and can win games when you have cards like Dictate of Erebos on the field.

I'm putting Ophiomancer standalone here cause this card is a no-brainer. A snake every upkeep means you can sac during each player's turn and still get the snake back.

so Squee, the Immortal and Eternal Scourge help combo with food chain because they can be played from exile.

Slimefoot, the Stowaway is more of an experimental add,but i like him because his ability cost mana versus just creating a token at your upkeep.

once upon a time i had both From Beyond and Creakwood Liege in the deck, but they both turned out to be 1 mana too expensive.

and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is the antimill card of the deck, because he forces you to shuffle your graveyard into your library.

I see you have a mix of recursion and tokens in here. Given you have Parallel Lives and Doubling Season , I think it would be better to focus on tokens instead of the recursion like Squee, the Immortal or Eternal Scourge since they tend to be more mana intensive as well.

Slimefoot, the Stowaway is pretty mana intensive for token gen. Is there a reason for choosing that over things like Creakwood Liege or From Beyond ? They might fall off late game, but it's frees up a lot of mana.

Also why Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre ? It's a good card but I don't really see it working with anything aside from Ashnod's Altar and maybe Awakening Zone .

Hi WelshGuitarist

On the top of my head I would say : - Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , always nice to have with Pathbreaker Ibex on the board. - Doomgape is also fun with Pathbreaker Ibex - Bojuka Bog instead of Golgari Rot Farm without hesitation - as an autoiclude Creakwood Liege - maybe Savra, Queen of the Golgari for more sac value

Final Parting is a fantastic tutor, akin to Jarad's Orders , except with greater selection!

Creakwood Liege is a good way to continue making tokens to sacrifice, while also buffing your insectile army. Empty the Graves allows you to still shamble together an army after a boardwipe, while a tried and true aristocrat such as Yahenni, Undying Partisan makes for a fantastic, indestructible sac outlet. Conjurer's Closet gives you a way to keep producing a swarm of golgari insects, but also gives you some reuses of your other etb triggers.

Other solid cards you may enjoy include Viscera Seer , Eternal Witness , and Birthing Pod .

Happy brewing!

Here are some mainly budget suggested adds:
Beastmaster Ascension - attack with prossh and 6 kobolds and they all get buffed.
Dictate of Erebos can visually be cast quicker in a three color deck before grave pact.
Journey to Eternity  Flip - some of the best budget recursion.
Pattern of Rebirth - can be used to get a combo piece like blood artist, or to get some board changer.
Champion of Lambholt - let's you make your creature almost unblockable.
Brawn and Anger are good especially in decks with built in ways to get into grave yard.
Diabolic Intent has dropped in price since reprint, it's good on token decks and cheaper than the main 2 tutors.
Primal Vigor is a viable doubling season, but only cast when ready to combo.
Phyrexian Altar has dropped to like $18, not budget but half of what it was. But Pitiless Plunderer will also work with prossh in play.
Creakwood Liege - buffs commander and makes tokens.
Smothering Abomination - good card draw in any black token deck. Sidisi, Undead Vizier easily recurable tutor.

Not really sure what to suggest, Golgari isn't really my thing.

I hope that I could be of some help!

DrukenReaps: You have a point, I'd like to fight the case of Creakwood Liege though, given that a majority of the creatures with Infect are Black or Green. Also the 3/3 tokens are good chumps, trades via Hell's Caretaker, and if they build up Triumph of the Hordes gives them all infect.

Agreed about the others being more "neat" than anything now that I look at it. I doubt really have enough WB spells for Deathbringer Liege, a ciphered creature can be removed, the other is kinda situational, and the hard to cast Obliterator. May need an extra removal spell in place of the other, but we'll see. Thanks for the suggestions.

TheAmazingSteve: I did think of that, and I had a few more sac outlets when I was considering a mill package, but yes, it seems a bandaid unless you can sac and repeat. Thanks for the suggestion.
