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.)

Does this deck function? I think it was just a joke but It seems like it should have Hornet Nest or somthing?

This looks like an alright deck but I might suggest looking over this page or looking over it some more if you have already.


A friend of mine built this deck too and some of his stronger things are Crawlspace, Dread, Arachnogenesis, and Hornet Nest.

0/10: clear theme, no jank : )

Some semi-budget suggestions:

Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession.

Null Brooch for specifically Cyclonic Rift.

Camaraderie could be sick card draw.

Emrakul's Evangel could upgrade 1/1 tokens.

Majestic Myriarch, Mossbridge Troll because wow that looks fun.

Phyrexian Rebirth consolidates power and is good to populate, but leaves you vulnerable to a single kill spell.

Crush of Wurms, Gelatinous Genesis for very big tokens.

Hornet Queen, Hornet Nest for deathtouch.

Ant Queen, Snake Basket, Spawnsire of Ulamog can easily convert mana into tokens.

Skittering Invasion might be good in some situations, if you can copy the tokens and use them as mana receptacles.

I would definitely recommend Hornet Nest. It gets overlooked because it's a 0/2 Defender. But Hornet Nest’s triggered ability will trigger even if it’s dealt lethal damage. For example, if it’s dealt 7 damage, its ability will trigger and you’ll put seven Insect creature tokens onto the battlefield with Flying and Deathtouch.

carpecanum thanks for the suggestions Aspect of Mongoose will be very helpful as will Hornet Nest. I had Wave of Reckoning in but i realized it was just one board wipe too many, and Sight of the Scalelords seems like too high a price for it's usefulness.

Aspect of Mongoose protects your boss and is a lot cheaper than Lightning Greaves.

Sight of the Scalelords boosts all your guys and Wave of Reckoning wipes almost everythig except your creatures.

Hornet Nest can be very useful
