Catalog9000 on Anybody know of a card ...

3 weeks ago

I have a Gruul Superfriend's Zoo (Non-competitive, obviously) that generates just an absurd amount of tokens. We're talking two different kinds of Dragons, Hydra, Satyr, and more.

I currently have in there Dragonlair Spider, but unfortunately he's not Modern legal. Sucks, don't it?

Anybody know of cards that churn out tokens in a similar nature? I know of things like Hooded Hydra and Young Pyromancer, but those don't fit in the deck too well. I'm looking for something that churns out tokens whenever my opponent does something.

DLS was nice because he kept my opponent's at bay with their spells. I'd throw him down and they'd back off their casting out of fear of making my boardstate bigger. Looking for that vibe, but in Modern.

Skarrg, the Rage Pits is a nice addition to get Prossh through.

I went the "things die so let's benefit from it" route with a lot of my black spells so Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble, as well as Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir.

If you want lots of tokens, Dragonlair Spider adds some guys, Mycoloth is powerful but slow and vulnerable, Mitotic Slime makes lots of extra bodies for one card and there's always the Nath of the Gilt-Leaf+Sadistic Hypnotist interaction. Hypnotist is good here anyway, as saccing Kobolds to destroy people's hands is always useful.

Well there are the forces, Baleful Force, Verdant Force...

Dragonlair Spider and Dragon Broodmother are another couple of good ones.

Agent_Fire well your refined list of generals have a wide range of battle plans. so for each general ill provide an EDHREC link which can give you a better feel for how the typical deck plays, and its common contents.

that being said, I would probably steer you away from Surrak Eldrazi, between the basically 4c budget manabase () and the inherent hate players have for eldrazi, it might be an idea to table for now.

Thromok the Insatiable EDHREC is somewhat a standard g/r token deck, with token engines like Dragonlair Spider, Mycoloth support a large Thromok with Soul's Fire and Purphoros, God of the Forge type effects to maximize damage.

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons EDHREC is almost the opposite, using an unconventional approach to generate tokens as a byproduct of cards like Midnight Banshee, Contagion Clasp and other similar (undervalued) cards that create interesting combo's and shenanigans.

Jhoira of the Ghitu EDHREC is a versatile commander that can be used for many shells (in my playgroup there is a Jhoira Eldrazi tribal deck) and chaos is easily one of the more fun options (most involve Obliterate+suspended Blightsteel Colossus/eldrazi titan) so she tends to draw hate... but for chaos tappedout user:Moondragon85 has a deck with a similar goal Eye of the Chaos Storm which could help you decide if its the route for you.

GeraldM I tried changing the printing on Dragonlair Spider, to see if it would unban it. It didn't work.

That happened to me with Wave of Vitriol and Dragonlair Spider... Probably a glitch.
