Hornet Nest

Creature — Insect

Defender (This creature can't attack.)

Whenever Hornet Nest is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch onto the battlefield. (Any amount of damage a creature with deathtouch deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

Hornet Nest Discussion

Hmm... For example maybe Orochi Hatchery (quite expensive to use), Wistful Selkie and Thelonite Hermit? Also I can suggest to you: Hornet Queen and Hornet Nest.

Seems like it would be kind of hard to get to seven Mana to chord out the volcano helion when you have no removal outside of the expensive blasphemous act. One of my favorite combos is Savage Summoning with Hornet Nest to flash it out in front of an attacking creature and get some surprise tokens.

Adding to the volcano hellion suggestion I'd put Hornet Nest with it. Lol.

Thank you for the +1! And usually we aren't at a great life total from the spirit token beat down that we generated for our opponent with Forbidden Orchard. We do have 8 bombs in Boros Reckoner and Hornet Nest but if Arcbond wasn't "each player" I think we could use it here. It would be sweet to deal 26 damage to our opponent in one turn though. I might have to do some playtesting!

those are decks pooki, but that's not quite how this works:

Hornet Nest is the current card (suggested by TheLariat) so the CHALLENGE is to build a ~NEW deck for that card (not a platform to showcase existing decks built around a card)

so ill build Dr...Beeeeess!!!!!! (deckmaking game)

and now summon a ... Dragon Throne of Tarkir deck ...

TheLariat there's an easier way to link cards, please go through the formatting tutorial or look at the tips. Link your cards using ((CardNameHere)) Where the brackets are square brackets

It will show up as Hornet Nest

Nahiri's Wrath works great if I have a Blasphemous Act in hand but not enough creatures on the board. Pitch that and an Insult / Injury and that's 15 dmg to a Boros Reckoner or Hornet Nest.

As long as the attacking creature doesn't have trample Hornet Nest is going to take 6 damage that damage step, so you get 6 of the 1/1 tokens. Same thing as lifelink.
