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.)

Ihazadeck Whoa! Making something punch Hornet Nest and then getting a face full of bees is a great idea!

There's a million angles to try. I'm fond of Deathmist Raptor and Den Protector/Whisperwood Elemental. Elvish Mystic is an of-course. There's not a lot of tokens in green except Hornet Nest and Ishkanah.

This is a great start, but allow me to provide a couple of replacements that will make this deck even scarier:

Gruul Turf is not only a color fixing land, but if you don't have any lands to play, it can bounce itself, meaning you get landfall every turn.

Blessings of Nature, Crater Elemental, Generator Servant, Lightning Bolt, Nova Chaser, and Hornet Nest are all effects that don't synergize with your commander in that big of a way, so I'd suggest replacing those with Evolutionary Leap, Nissa's Renewal, Rampaging Baloths, Khalni Heart Expedition, Courser of Kruphix, Where Ancients Tread, and Warstorm Surge.

You need Release the Ants, and Wirewood Symbiote is fun, bit too old to be modern legal. If you're going casual, Wirewood Hivemaster is awesome. Ant Queen, and Hornet Queen are great. Fire Ants are horrible but fitting. Hornet Nest isn't too bad, and Skullclamp is also fun.

First of all, thank you for taking the time to look over my deck CelineT.

A lot of the stuff I have in at the moment is temporary, it has been changed a lot since I first posted and will continue to change for a quite a while. Again thank you for all the suggestions. I will definitely be replacing Gruul Cluestone with Gruul Signet once I get one.

As for enchantments, I cut verdant embrace after playing a time or two and agree with you about that one. I like Night Soil for graveyard hate + spawning tokens for 1 colorless mana. I do like the idea of Goblin Bombardment as it would pair well with Impact Tremors.

I also agree with needing more mana ramp and have changed a few creatures and put a few more sorceries and enchantments in that will help with that. I think this is my biggest area of concern at the moment and will soon invest in some better one drop mana dorks.

I think at this point I'm going to almost completely drop the idea of attacking with Ulasht and go all in for spawning tokens. Having two win strategies just seems to leave me with few good options when I'm playing and the token path seems a little more consistent.

I have Dragon Broodmother, Earthcraft, Hornet Nest, Warp World, Craterhoof Behemoth, and Anger on the way. Which will give me some more win options and make the deck play a little more smoothly (also giving me more flying coverage). I think after that I'm going to focus on fixing my mana ramp.

Thank you very much, and thank you for the upvote!

It really is a lot of fun and it's been a blast working on it. I think what I really need to focus on now is solidifying an efficient sideboard, tweaking the quantity of some cards (Scion of Vitu-Ghazi for instance, might consider a full playset), and switching others around (I just don't feel that Hornet Nest is pulling its weight here). If I ever have the time off of work for fnm, I might have to give it a try and see how it fairs then!

Cool build! Warrior en-Kor + Hornet Nest could possibly be 1 more redirect combo for different situations :)
