Cloudius on Hey you... you want some tokens?

Fresh Meat

Suggesting the above as sort of a anti-board wipe mechanic to repopulate your board with tons of tokens. It's stronger than Caller of the Claw as it counts token creatures as well.

I run a Selesnya token deck helmed as Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Feel free to trade pointers:

@Fungreatmario: I keep saying that I'm not going to spend that kind of money on a single card (much less a whole set, because you shouldn't run less than 4 of a leyline, and that brings it up to $120, which's twice the price of the entire rest of the deck) and you keep suggesting cards that I've already repeatedly stated are over my budget. I don't know what else to tell you. (also: for burn I'd rather use Life Goes On, but after specifically testing against it, I decided that my deck doesn't really need specific answers for burn and the slots are better saved for other things). Rest in Peace is nice and something I'm looking into getting at some point, after I've managed to upgrade my landbase.

@lagotripha: Solemnity seems worth looking into! It sadly stops Sagas from working, but I guess that just simplifies the question of what to sideboard out, haha. Triumph of the Hordes is a good card, but I don't know if this deck is the right home for it (nothing else has or gives infect, so it's useless unless I get the full 10 points of damage through, which also means the attack is wasted as infect doesn't deal regular damage). Heroic Intervention is something I've wanted for a long time, but the price keeps getting in the way. I actually used to have Fresh Meat in the deck, and it was so much fun when it worked, but it ended up being a bit too narrow and hard to cast at four mana. Same for Second Harvest. I don't like Fungal Plots that much - it seems to have its place in combo decks and decks that use Saprolings for sacrifices already, but I actually need to keep mine alive, since they're my only real source of damage. And I have too few creatures to reliably use its first ability. Thanks for the suggestions, though. :)

@Firebird Tana, the Bloodsower. She was never actually in the deck, but I love the art.

@GreenWizardGames: Thanks, and good luck!

Yeah, what you say makes sense, I was hoping to put a Wirewood Lodge in somewhere but wasn't sure what to replace it with, I'll probably swap it for the Terramorphic Expanse cuz I have a cool promo of the other coming in the post to use in the deck. I had saved myself some mana previously with that Fresh Meat swap so might replace Siege Behemoth with Craterhoof Behemoth

Supply // Demand needs spaces to read properly for some reason.

Triumph of the Hordes is a game ending card for this style of deck, although commander popularity has pushed the price up a lot.

Some of my favourite MTG memories are of a Pollenbright Wings on a Mycoloth. Both cards aren't great in modern, as they're too easily disrupted (barring a Leyline of Anticipation deck), but are a lot of fun in more casual lists. I've tinkered some, but you're pretty close to how this deck wants to run.

Sideboard wise, Alive // Well is worth a look. Cheap, helps hate out burn as well as, (if not better than,) a leyline in token decks. Solemnity hates infect while stopping both Ratchet Bomb and Engineered Explosives from hitting anything bigger than your tokens. Wilt-Leaf Liege is amazing in hollow-one metas.

Heroic Intervention is amazing board wipe insurance, and is in vogue, but things like Fresh Meat also exist.

Fungal Plots is a big saproling tribal card. You might not be making tokens often with it, but the lifegain/carddraw is very strong when you're using saprolings as chump blockers and trying to dig into your sideboard cards.

Second Harvest and Rhys the Redeemed exist, but a lot of the time they are only as effective as a Scatter the Seeds, and some of the time a lot worse.

Utopia mycorn feels like it could be part of some kind of haste/combo list, but I've never seen it work well. Wayfaring Temple is basically either a 1/1 or a 3 mana duress as your opponent kills it.

Hope this helps- good luck and happy piloting.

Fresh Meat is kinda like Caller of the Claw except it doesn't care about tokens. It sounds like a nice addition for maybe Bloom Tender or Wargate

Really like what you're doing here by repeatedly killing creatures and turning them into tokens. Also a big fan of Ogre Battledriver and Primal Forcemage effects, which I've used to great effect in many decks. Ghoulcaller Gisa is great to convert the pumped tokens into many pumped Zombies (even more so with Coat of Arms). Token doublers like Parallel Lives and Doubling Season also help, especially when you stack the token generation, e.g. Emrakul's Evangel into Descent of the Dragons turns each land into 4 Dragons. They also give infinite ETBs with Tooth and Claw which deals infinite damage with Pandemonium or makes infinite beasts with Fresh Meat or 2 token-doubling enchantments.

If animating lands is the main game plan, you might want a couple more land ramp spells like Skyshroud Claim and Harvest Season (which doubles your lands when you tap all your lands then animate them). World Shaper is great to bring back your lands, and also contributes to the creature count.

I have a very similar deck concept in a General Tazri / Zada, Hedron Grinder shell, do check it out below!

Thanks DrkNinja! Fresh Meat is an awesome suggestion, since it also counts tokens (unfortunately Caller of the Claw, Ogre Slumlord, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, and Gutter Grime don't), and it adds up all the creatures that died if there were multiple rounds of removal and sacrifice that turn. I definitely have to find a spot for Fresh Meat.

Faith's Reward was already included, with Thrilling Encore as another really good mass recursion spell.

So I think that cards like Fresh Meat/Caller of the Claw or Faith's Reward type effects since you sac/destroy a mass amount of creatures.

Love the deck +1. I built a saproling deck that uses the Evangel to turn all the saprolings into something much scarier than 1/1s.
