Grind on Harvesting You to Feed the Machine

1 hour ago

Hi, cool deck and very unique! mono-green artifact synergy in EDH is pretty unusal!
saw your deck on the commander thread. I have not built a mono green edh deck but here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them are in your budget and/or look fun enough to run.

two things that green does fantastically that could tune-up your list are ramp and recursion. some ramp cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Skyshroud Claim could fit in over Attune with Aether depending on how dedicated to the energy subtheme you are. also Sol Ring!!
for recursion, Regrowth and Recollect are sometimes better than Reclaim, Pulse of Murasa. also i really like Seasons Past over Wildest Dreams - six mana for a full hand over ~2 cards.

a couple options for your win cons, depending on if you want to lean more towards combo or more towards token/stompy wins.
combo: Staff of Domination, Paradox Engine, and mana dorks like Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can get you into a big mana/card draw situation. Cloud Key is another foundry inspector.
token stompy: cards like Hornet Queen, Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar, coupled with more overrun effects like Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, or Kamahl, Fist of Krosa can give you a more aggro tilt. Genesis Wave may be a fun option for either direction.

finally if you want to run more removal/disruption, Beast Within, Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Terastodon, all help the cause and provide bodies to swing or block.
hope this all helps and sorry if it is goodstuff suggestions! cheers and have fun.

Dryad Arbor, Zoetic Cavern, Khalni Garden are lands that can trigger ezuri.

Managorger Hydra, Tuskguard Captain, and Phantom Nantuko are great creatures.

Hooded Hydra, Hangarback Walker, and Chasm Skulker are must-haves.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood give counters

Other good cards: Burnished Hart, Gyre Sage, Hornet Queen, Inspiring Call, Progenitor Mimic, Eldritch Evolution, Green Sun's Zenith, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Verdant Confluence, Rishkar's Expertise, Asceticism and more.

For planeswalkers i would suggest Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

Another thing to note is that proliferate works on experience counters so that means: Viral Drake, Tezzeret's Gambit, Thrummingbird, Skyship Plunderer(he's basically a single target proliferate)

grizzlebies on Budget Shattergang Brothers - EDH / Commander

Great deck and video. I think Shattergang works really well for a budget EDH deck, way more so than other generals. Cool stuff!

Couple of misses, in my opinion:

I also like Heartstone, not just for the bros, but for Reassembling Skeleton. Late game it works better than the tappers since you have a better shot at doing a bunch of sacrifices in the same turn.

One correction to Colgate's answer: the Hornet Queen tokens do not enter the battlefield attacking. That isn't the way Mirror Mockery works.

Hornet Queen, Mirror Mockery, Parallel Lives, Panharmonicon, Doubling Season. Please link your cards by using double square brackets.

The answer is "entirely too much" and if your opponent/s do not have a mass removal spell, they should give up.

The easy answer is - Season and lives are replacement effects, which modify how triggers and spells resolve. They do not trigger, nor are their at any point on the stack.

0/ You attack with HQ, enchanted with Mirror Mockery.

1/ Mirror mockery triggers, attempting to put a HQ token into play.
2/ Lives and season modify this event 122 = 4 HQ tokens. You can choose in which order you apply the replacement effects, but the end result will be the same, since they do the same thing.
3/ 4 HQ tokens enter the battlefield.
4/ They have 4 ETB triggers total, which Panharmonicon doubles to 8.
5/ 8 triggers attempt to create 4 tokens each, which lives and season quadruple to 16 each.

End result - 5 HQs (4 tokens waiting to be exiled EOT) and 128 tokens.

Edit: above answer is entirely correct, I was a bit wrong in my math.

I'm not really sure what you are trying to ask, but I try to answer anyway. Only things here triggering are Hornet Queen and Mirror Mockery. Parallel Lives, Panharmonicon and Doubling Season has only static abilites. So this happens, when you attack with Hornet Queen:

You declare Hornet Queen as an attacker.

Mirror Mockery triggers. You can apply replacment effects of Parallel Lives and Doubling Season in any order, either way you end up with 4 Hornet Queen tokens.

Each one of those Hornet Queens has triggered ability and they trigger. Panharmonicon replaces each of those triggers with two triggers, so there's now 8 Hornet Queen trigger's on the stack.

Again for each trigger you can apply Doubling Season and Parallel Lives in order of your choise. Anyway you end up with 16 tokens from each trigger.

So from these triggers you get 4 attacking Hornet Queen tokens, which are exiled at end of combat and 128 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch.

I would recommend adding more artifacts (Expedition Map is really good) to try and help getting "metalcraft" on Inventors' Fair. I also run Crop Rotation personally, to help find it and Gaea's Cradle.

Long term you should be looking to get a Phyrexian Altar to finish off your big four sac outlets.

Hornet Queen is ok, albeit expensive. She does combo with Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar though, so that's nice. Not sure how I feel about Field of Souls. It's interesting, but I don't think you're going to see as many tokens from it compared to a reanimator deck.
