If an effect would create one or more tokens under your control, it creates twice that many of those tokens instead.
If an effect would put one or more counters on a permanent you control, it puts twice that many of those counters on that permanent instead.

Doubling Season Discussion
2 days ago
I mean, Strip Mine and Wasteland are staple inclusions in pretty much any deck, but if you really think the manabase is that weak then fair enough.
I suppose the deck really does run too many pillow-fort effects, but, yes, I tend to play in metas with lots of creatures, so I tend to think that having a wipe suite (unless you're playing mono-green or something) is effectively a necessity.
Also, what's wrong with Command Beacon, exactly? I suppose if you're just really looking for lands to axe, fine, but it's not a weak card in and of itself--at least when your commander is better than Daxos.
I also completely forgot that Porphyry Nodes was a card, honestly. Otherwise, it'd be in there.
Your full list of replacements would make it to where we're playing a lot fewer enchantments, but I suppose Daxos isn't that great anyway, so, whatever. I'm honestly not sure if making that deck would qualify Daxos for tier 3, frankly, as it's more the deck than the commander or any synergy he has with it that's any good, but, whatever. I'm at least proud of how the mana curve in that deck is basically perfect, which is something your suggestions mess with slightly, but I suppose that doesn't really matter.
I just built that deck as an experiment, so I don't really care about it too much. Here, on the other hand, is a deck I've actually played extensively and have been tuning ever since I first made it:
Begin The Hymns. It's a Seton, Krosan Protector deck, and when I originally made it and shared it here, he was a very rogue af commander who was tier 4 or 5, but he got moved up to tier 3 after that point. The deck hasn't changed much since then, and I don't think I'm arguing for it to be moved up to tier 2 (the only mono-green commander in tier 2 is Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , and I'm assuming that's because she's draw in addition to ramp), but I would like to point out that Seton is perhaps the fastest mono-green ramp commander in the format. His ability effectively gives every druid in the deck haste (though, many of them have better abilities of their own), making him much faster than Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Omnath, Locus of Mana , and even Selvala (though she's probably still better).
At times, it's practically a storm deck--I've played some very interesting lines with it before. One time, my last opponent almost had me hard-locked by being able to recur Pernicious Deed and Liliana of the Veil with Doubling Season on the board thanks to Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and I believe what happened was I drew and played Green Sun's Zenith , got Eternal Witness , she got back Natural Order , I cast Natural Order getting Grave Sifter to get back all of the druids he'd previously wiped, then, with my remaining mana, I cast Aluren , then went off and killed him that turn (I had Zendikar Resurgent on the battlefield, hence why I had the mana for all that in the first place). I've cast Genesis Wave for 55 on turn 6 before thanks to Gaea's Cradle , Voyaging Satyr , Argothian Elder , and Vitalize . Yes, the deck dies to boardwipes (especially instant-speed ones) and counterspells, but it's surprisingly resilient, and also quite redundant, provided my opponents don't follow up by slamming some stax effect (which they probably would).

Kamerot so If I play Doubling Season then play Vivien Reid she will have 10 loyalty counters and I could -8 her to get her emblem in one turn right? also would their be any cheaper replacement for Selvala, Heart of the Wilds that isn't Karametra's Acolyte or Priest of Titania

It's only 150 Euro over here (And that's considered budget in our LGS compared to 1-2k decks some run):

Since this is your first EDH deck, and I don't really see much in the way of a theme here, beyond +1/+1 counters and tokens, I would go to EDHREC and look at Marath's page, as well as the pages under color combinations for GW and the theme pages for tokens and counters. It will give you a good idea of what your options are and what cards you have here that should stay in the deck, and what can go. Also, you can toggle to budget decks in the upper right, to see what cards you can easily buy or trade for now, and the main page will give you long-term goals like Doubling Season that are a little more realistic than Horizon Canopy.

Kamerot what do you think would be the better chose adding Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Doubling Season I feel it would have a very good synergy with my deck with cards like Avenger of Zendikar , Bane of Progress , Managorger Hydra , Myojin of Life's Web , Nacatl War-Pride , Rampaging Baloths , Scavenging Ooze , Vigor , Beacon of Creation , Garruk Wildspeaker and Vivien Reid . tell me if doubling season would work in all of those cases

Skewer the critics really should have been an instant; would it really have been too powerful if it had been?
Incubation druid is nice, but almost strictly worse than Gyre Sage, because it cannot produce nearly as much mana as the sage, and also requires much more investment than does the sage before it can pay for itself; the fact that it can generate mana of any color is nice, but most decks will want a greater quantity of mana, and use something else, such as Chromatic Lantern, for other colors of mana.
On that subject, tome of the guildpact is simply far too expensive for its effect; it could easily have cost 3 mana and still been balanced, especially when one considers how powerful chromatic lantern is, at a cost of 3 mana.
Biogenic ooze will be insane in conjunction with Doubling Season, so I expect to see decks that contain both of those cards after the release of this set.
Captive audience is amazing, and, as the second black/red mythic rare of this set, proves that utter carnage was fake, unfortunately. Also, did anyone notice Fblthp in the artwork of that card?

Thanks for the suggestions. I am looking to get Doubling Season eventually - Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor are decent imitations for now. I hadn't considered Vraska, Golgari Queen. I have that one and Vraska, Relic Seeker, which would go well thematically. The others look like good additions too, but I'll need to hunt them down.
Say I do get those cards - which should get removed? New to Commander, especially constructing decks, so I'm not sure what should go. Would I sub Grave Pact for Dictate of Erebos since they do basically the same thing, only a little cheaper? Or remove something else so that I can double dip that effect? In Garruk's Wake for Gaze of Granite or something else to have 2 board wipe type spells?
