Ezuri's Predation

Sorcery

For each creature your opponents control, put a 4/4 green beast creature token onto the battlefield. Each of those Beasts fights a different one of those creatures.

Ezuri's Predation Discussion

Raging_Squiggle on How does Ezuri’s Predation interact ...

From the MTG Gatherer website for Ezuri's Predation :

11/4/2015 If Ezuri’s Predation creates more than one token for any given creature (due to an effect such as the one Doubling Season creates), the extra tokens won’t fight any creature.

So let’s say I cast Ezuri's Predation while I have one (or more) token doubler(s) out ( Doubling Season / Parallel Lives / Anointed Procession ), what do the additional set(s) of tokens do? It’s a little ambiguous due to the way the card is worded.. Does the additional set(s) double-up on each creature accordingly (due to each being an exact copy), or do they do nothing (due to there not being enough unique creatures to Fight)?

Have you heard of Arena and the Magus of the Arena ? They also allow you to start fights when you want! Ezuri's Predation is also a big-time brawl! (and "one-side" board wipe if you give the beasts you make deathtouch!) Setessan Tactics is another good way to make creatures duke it out.

Happy brewing!

mrdehring on Punishment of Prossh- EDH

Welcome to EDH. Before I begin giving you suggestions about this deck I just wanted to let you know a little about the EDH format.1) EDH decks usually have about 36+ lands and some additional mana sources. I see you are running Cultivate and Kodama's Reach as well as a few artifact mana sources, but you will probably need to up your land count. 2) Most EDH decks that use their commander use Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots as ways to protect it and to give it haste so it doesn't just dies every time you cast it.

For mana sources Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are great in your deck.

You can add Poison-Tip Archer to the group of cards that do damage when a creature dies.

Viscera Seer is a great sac outlet.

Skullclamp is a great source of card draw, especially in this style of deck.

Since you are making tokens... Ezuri's Predation and Sprout Swarm might be fun. Primal Vigor is another Doubling Season type of effect. My personal favorite in token decks is Eldrazi Monument

As for cuts to make, to make room for 12+ lands you have some tough choices to make (more cuts if you make any changes). Here are my thoughts and reasons:

Atarka, World Render I know your general is a dragon, but not really many other things in your deck are, so this might be a bit of a win-more card.

Beastcaller Savant you can get better acceleration somewhere else 1/1 creatures don't stick around long.

Burning-Tree Emissary 2/2s get outclassed quick in EDH and you aren't trying to storm.

Goblin Bushwhacker one time effect, then not much. This wants to be a Craterhoof Behemoth or at least an End-Raze Forerunners .

Kalonian Behemoth big creatures are big, but not sure it does much in your deck. Gets some Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots and build your own.

Phage the Untouchable a great creature and a lot of fun, but probably better in another deck.

Riftsweeper I don't think this works the way you think it does.

Ulvenwald Hydra and Zendikar Incarnate , these are better served in a lands deck

Autumn's Veil situational based on your groups meta.

Tainted Strike you better make sure to kill them with the only poison you are running

Titanic Growth +4/+4 might be nice in some cases, but I'm sure it is worth the slot, most things that are trying to kill your creature will probably still kill them after the pump.

Explore up the land count to make this matter.

Mana Cylix run better fixing so you don't need to filter your mana.

Hope this helps. I like your take on Prosh with tokens looks like a lot of fun.

snown on Trostani, Selesnya's Voice

This is a great start. Here are some suggestions from a Trostani deck that I use, organized by pricing tiers to help keep this deck budget:

< $1

Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage
3/3 Tokens and another way to populate

Felidar Sovereign
Alternate Win Condition. Probably works better with Trostani as commander due to the increased life gain, but there's quite a bit of life gain in this deck regardless, so it may work.

Rampaging Baloths
Consistent way to get som big tokens on the battlefield for free. (Works well with Traverse the Outlands)

Emmara Tandris
Some token protection

Trostani's Summoner
Get a variety of tokens out quick

Advent of the Wurm
Just a decent token to populate later

Druid's Deliverance
Fog with populate. Optional, but not too bad

Cultivate
More mana!

White Sun's Zenith
Utilize that mana and go wide

Second Harvest
Speaking of going wide, mega populate

Increasing Devotion
Just get some dudes on the board

Phyrexian Rebirth
Board wipe with a token upside

Intangible Virtue
Go wide with a little extra damage, and still have some blockers left

Angelic Accord
Like your Resplendent Angel, but harder to remove, and only requires you to gain 4 life.

Tamiyo's Journal A slow tutor, but might draw you some cards if you can't get to the tutor

$1 - $5

Devout Invocation
Potentially double your board, with 4/4 fliers!

Storm Herd
Another mass token maker, but with 1/1 fliers (evasion is nice)

Aetherflux Reservoir
Alternate win condition. Probably better with Trostani as commander as you need to be able to absorb a loss of 50 life, but even in commander, most other people won't be able to say the same.

Beastmaster Ascension
Win condition. With a wide board, +5/+5 is huge. Also creatures enter the battlefield with the +5/+5, so with Trostani out that's some good extra life gain.

Sandwurm Convergence
Consistent way to get some decent tokens. Also protection from flying

Primal Command
Life gain, removal, mill protection, and tutor? This card just has value.

> $5

Panharmonicon
Again, designed for Trostani to double up on life gain, but helps with any ETB effects you have, of which there are a couple

Anointed Procession
Should be in any white token deck

Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Create creatures, get rid of big threats, maybe get your team in the air

Ezuri's Predation
Often a one-sided boardwipe, makes a ton ot tokens, and will sometime just win the game

Traverse the Outlands
Mana! This is only really good if you have a larger creature out, but like I said above, works really well with Rampaging Baloths

Test of Endurance
Basically another Felidar Sovereign, harder to remove, but requires 50 life instead of 40

Chord of Calling
Green tutor with convoke. You have a bunch of tokens, why not?

Green Sun's Zenith
Potentially reusable creature tutor. have to have the mana available, but it will find answers for you.

Bonus

Parallel Lives
Not exactly budget, but valuable in a token deck

Enlightened Tutor
Artifact and Enchantment Tutor. Again, not really budget, but likely worth it in your deck

Pikobyte on Wort budget

Ezuri's Predation is a nice card in my Wort deck. Kind of wipes the board for your opponents and leaves you with some spare tokens. Deals a lot of damage with stuff like Impact Tremors or purphoros.

ZendikariWol on Ezur-in Trouble

1) I do not condone infect under any circumstances. I believe that it takes away from the fun of the game and forces a deckbuilding restriction on people (forces them to spend card slots on cheap removal). Not only that, but it's not beneficial for you. You'll be able to MAYBE kill one player before the whole table is like 'he has infect, KILLEM'. And kill you, they shall.

2) have some suggestions for non-infect cuts.

Hornet Queen is not great. Lots of experience counters but at 7 mana it's probably not worth it.

Joraga Treespeaker is usually a worse Elvish Mystic

Nylea, God of the Hunt is a really odd inclusion here.

Shrieking Drake bounces creatures and that removes counters.

Yavimaya Elder wants to die, so putting counters on it is not goo. It would just end up being 5 mana to draw a card and tutor two lands. If that's worth it to you then go ahead ig.

A lot of the larger creatures like Vigor, Verdurous Gearhulk, and Nylea, God of the Hunt could be replaced with smaller creatures that generate more value.

Ezuri's Predation, while on-theme, is not a very good card, and doesn't synergize at all with the rest of the deck.

Fable of Wolf and Owl is not super good, especially in a deck running so few multicolored cards.

Aluren isn't great. Gives opponents too much ammo.

Panharmonicon is a confusing addition. You have EIGHT creatures whose etb you'd want to replicate, and doubling up on experience does two things: 1) Not enough. After 6 counters your dudes are immune to removal and after 9 all of the infecty bois (if you decide to keep them) can swing for lethal. 2) It makes you LOOK really menacing, even if those counters aren't doing a ton. That makes the table your enemy, which basically hands you the L.

Finally, Imma link my deck. You can give some opinions on how I should do things, you can ask my advice on includes and such. For now, though, have a good one and happy brewing!
