Growing Ranks Discussion
6 days ago

This deck 100% wants Voice of Resurgence, to survive through sweepers. These should absolutely replace Call of the Conclave Also I feel like the new Trostani Discordant would be better than OG Trostani. And I understand that the lands are budget, but at least some Sunpetal Grove would make for much more consistent mana. Also in this deck your one-mana populate sorcery will usually be making just another 1/1, a repeatable effect like Growing Ranks might be more effective. You might even consider Hunted Witness since this deck is so weak to board-wipes. Also I wonder if you want some amount of Nissa, Voice of Zendikar to build bigger tokens.

If you cast Kin-Tree Invocation and the greatest toughness you have on the board is 4, then your Kin-Tree token will be a 4/4. Not a 0/0 with four +1/+1 counters, but a token that would actually read 4/4 in its P/T box.
Copiable values are what is printed on the card (or would be printed on the token in this case), including name, type line, text box, and power/toughness. They do not include counters, auras, equipment, or temporary stat alterations due to other cards. Since your Kin-Tree token actually has 4/4 "printed" on it, that is copiable, and your Growing Ranks populated copy will also be a 4/4.

I considered Growing Ranks too when forming the deck but axed it as most of my tokens are 1/1 minions and producing 1 more of those per upkeep ain't impactful enough. I reckon it'll work better with decks that churns out 5/5 Wurms and other big tokens, etc.
+1/+1 Counters in this deck is only a sub theme (running only 3 cards that adds counters). But thanks to your suggestion, I'm adding Pir, Imaginative Rascal into my Atraxa deck instead!
Keep the discussions flowing man. I enjoy the deck brewing process as much as playing the decks. Cheers!

Speaking of big tokens generators, I was running the deck with Garruk, Primal Hunter, but planeswalkers are heavily targeted the moment they get into the battlefield, same reason why I took out Nissa, Voice of Zendikar.
I feel a little lack of token generators, maybe it's just my impression

I like your build here. I'm working on a Shalai build of my own, but its going to be a much simpler approach. With your token theme going, Growing Ranks would be another enchantment option that would produce a token every turn. I run it in my saproling deck, and like its performance. Pir, Imaginative Rascal will give you an Atraxa-like effect for anything with a token on it, and if you really want to ramp out, Rishkar, Peema Renegade will turn anything Shalai touches into a Llanowar Elves.
Looks like fun!
