king-saproling on All The Tokens

2 weeks ago

Ever considered Tana, the Bloodsower and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as the generals? They're super explosive and make tons of tokens out of nowhere (especially if Tana has something like Bravado on)!

Here's my list if you're curious: Bruse Tana Boorish Bloodsower

That said, I definitely recommend these cards: Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Hope Against Hope, Cathars' Crusade, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Betrothed of Fire, Thallid Germinator, Song of Freyalise, Cryptolith Rite, Druids' Repository, Utopia Mycon, Fungal Plots, Shamanic Revelation, Ohran Frostfang

Tana is one of my faves! I built her with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and it has become my strongest deck (a double-striking Tana with Sigil of the Nayan Gods is super gnarly). Here's my list if you wanna check it out: Bruse Tana, Boorish Bloodsower.

You might consider these cards: Bravado, Hope Against Hope, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Thallid Germinator, Mantle of Leadership, Betrothed of Fire, Fungal Plots, Utopia Mycon, Cathars' Crusade, Goldnight Commander, Bastion Protector, Hunter's Prowess, Druids' Repository, Rishkar's Expertise

Love this! Tana and Bruse are my favorite pairing. When I built them they quickly became my fave deck. Here's my list if you want to check it out: Bruse Tana Boorish Bloodsower. I also built a super-budget (sub $50) version.

I definitely concur with Braingamer, Bravado and its ilk (Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Hope Against Hope, Mantle of Leadership, Betrothed of Fire, Eidolon of Countless Battles) are extremely powerful with this duo. I have an explanation of how these work on my deck page but in short, they make Tana grow exponentially bigger every time she hits, and she hits twice per turn thanks to Bruse. Easy commander damage!

You might consider these too: Thallid Germinator, Sunbond, Goldnight Commander, Hunter's Insight, Rishkar's Expertise, Ohran Frostfang, Skullclamp, Seize the Day, Cryptolith Rite, Song of Freyalise, Druids' Repository

Cool deck! Its nice to see Tana getting some love. I highly recommend these cards: Bravado, Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Hope Against Hope, Betrothed of Fire, Fallen Ideal, Thallid Germinator, Eidolon of Countless Battles

I have a Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder x Tana deck that uses cards like the ones above to amazing effect. Here's the list if you're interested: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/bruse-tana-boorish-bloodsower/

This is super cool!!! You might like these: Mantle of Leadership , Pollenbright Wings , Sigil of the Nayan Gods , Hope Against Hope , Heliod's Pilgrim (finds Squirrel Nest), Open the Armory , Fierce Empath (finds the Earl), Fungal Sprouting , Murder Investigation , Mercy Killing , Anointer Priest , Requiem Angel , Bramble Sovereign (interestingly, the Earl is not legendary, which means you can copy and populate it for multiple Earls!), Mimic Vat , Second Harvest , Parallel Evolution , Shared Summons .

I can think of more if you need :p Also I would take out Nantuko Shrine . I'd be surprised if you made even 1 squirrel with it.

I love this style of deck! I have a similar deck in the form of Bruse and Tana if you want to check it out. I made a super budget version too that still manages to deal crazy amounts of damage pretty early.

Anyway, I think you'd like these cards: Rapacious One , Bravado , Hope Against Hope , Sigil of the Nayan Gods , Wild Beastmaster , Betrothed of Fire , Shamanic Revelation , Majestic Myriarch , Druids' Repository , Rishkar's Expertise , Return of the Wildspeaker , Utopia Mycon , Requiem Angel , Rage Thrower , Beastmaster Ascension

Also heads up, your list has 2x Fungal Sprouting

Hell yeah! Another heroics deck! I have one too but Daxos the Returned commands mine, same idea tho.

Some creatures that I don't see here that could benefit the deck are Celestial Ancient , Danitha Capashen, Paragon Dawnbringer Charioteers , Graceblade Artisan , Lagonna-Band Trailblazer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Wingsteed Rider , Umbra Mystic and my personal favorite Thran Golem .

Some enchantments I really like in my deck are Celestial Mantle , Daybreak Coronet , Divine Favor , Face of Divinity , Griffin Guide , Hope Against Hope , On Serra's Wings Angelic Destiny and Bonds of Faith can go offensive or defensive. You should look into some umbras like Felidar Umbra and Hyena Umbra .

Windborne Charge is a great little pump spell for a good cost. I'm surprised you're not running any enchantment tutors. Crystal Chimes is great graveyard enchantment recursion.

I noticed you have some token generation. Intangible Virtue could be an option. With that said Sigil of the Empty Throne is an excellent card in decks like this.

I realize I've only suggested white cards but that's the only overlapping color our decks share.

Sorry to spam this comment with so much but I got excited. I love the heroic mechanic and I'm glad to see other people utilizing it. A big enchanted +1 from me!
