Leaning into green for Parallel Lives or Growing Ranks or other populate effects might be good.

msanchez13 on spamming those tokens

4 weeks 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.

Some cards you might wanna look into are Second Harvest, Growing Ranks, Wirewood Channeler, and Fyndhorn Elves, and Quirion Elves, but I gotta say, this is looking pretty good!

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.

If you have Growing Ranks on the field and a Spirit Warrior token from Kin-Tree Invocation and you populate the token does it come in as Power/Toughness from the token or would it enter as a 0/0?

bushido_man96 Thanks.

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!

I run Rishkar, Peema Renegade in it my Atraxa deck too! However for this deck, I'd prefer Earthcraft and Cryptolith Rite, and perhaps Song of Freyalise.

Keep the discussions flowing man. I enjoy the deck brewing process as much as playing the decks. Cheers!

Cloudius funny you mentioned Growing Ranks, it was a card that I was uncertain about exactly for the same reasons, I think I'll use your suggestion.

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!
