enpc on I need a token deck...

I run a casual list with Tymna the Weaver and Tana, the Bloodsower which does a pretty good job of pumping out saprolings. It's not a dedicated token list, however it spews them onto the battlefield pretty well (deck is Don't be Blue).

If you want a lot of tokens, Ghave, Guru of Spores is going to be one of your best bets. Saprolings have a lot of support and he enables them well, especially when paired with token doubling effects. You will need a lot of dice though.

As for enabling Alela, Artful Provocateur , Shimmering Wings is an easy way of getting toekns, however is not an infinite combo in itself.

Ghave, Guru of Spores and Marath above are your best options imo.

I play a ton in Ghave, Guru of Spores , almost every good one you could run. I wait until I draw a second removal spell before I play the first, if possible.

jimmyfoas the choose to play no recursion is due at my meta graveyards hate. At the beginning me and my friends have abused about playing from the graveyard so the hate has grown and sometimes my recursion inside this deck have becomed a dead draw. In the previous list i ran Sun Titan but i cut it off because he has never been so decisive in the matches. Now, in the last month, it seems that graveyards hate has lowered a tiny bit, I will think about Yawgmoth's Will , it s too good to stay out and it is a second chance for trigger Ad Nauseam combo if the first chance go bad, the same is for Animate Dead , another card that i would add in the list. Another reason for the which i don t play recursion is that i play Rest in Peace . I play against a lot of archetype that pass by graveyards for combo or mechanic as Ghave, Guru of Spores , Scion of the Ur-Dragon or Kess, Dissident Mage , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Marchesa, the Black Rose so it frequently happen that i have tutor for RIP. With RIP in play i stop their engine but as you could imagine all my recursion are useless, this last one is probably the main reason for which I don t play recursion. I hope to have exhaustively respond to your question . Thanks again for comment.

Ghave is great, so many different ways to build/play it that can all be successful. You also get all the best removal in WBG.

Theres nothing like the feeling of sitting behind Ghave, Guru of Spores , Grave Pact , Aura Shards , and Woodfall Primus . Go ahead, play something.

Combo Ghave, Guru of Spores is going to be the most competitive token deck. I have linked my friend's Ghave deck below if you want ideas on how to build it.

Ghave, Guru of Spores is pretty up there in the way of power level. Though most competitive decks (Ghave included) will leverage tokens to combo out, rather than try and go down the beats route.
