Parallel Lives


If an effect would put one or more tokens onto the battlefield under your control, it puts twice that many tokens onto the battlefield instead.

Missing a few wolves. Wicked Wolf , Watchwolf , and Skalla Wolf . Also, there seems to be a decent amount of token production so things like Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives might be good here.

Other good cards for Primal Genesis

Anointed Procession , Parallel Lives , God-Eternal Oketra could also look at cards like Adorned Pouncer

The deck also needs better single target removal add in Generous Gift that is a white version beast within and Swords to Plowshares as examples

also replace some of the lands with artifact mana ramp there are some better ones like signets are better than lockets

Whirlwind_2100 very true about the suicide mission. I really like the deck in that it's giving us several options in which we can basically buff up one (or several) creatures and then swing in, but you're right. I suppose the thought process behind choosing Haazda Marshal was that it was fairly cheap (I believe I had a copy of it in my bulk when I was looking for filler pieces) and sort of half fit the role that needed to be filled (token generation).

He, among some others, will likely be cut. The overall amount of creatures is likely to go down just a bit regardless for a few other key pieces ( Doubling Season , Parallel Lives , Beastmaster Ascension , etc..). Thanks so much for the advice and kind words! He's been making a list out of the maybe pile and saving his cash, and we will likely have some kind of an update in the near future.

Cool, i like it. Unfortunately i've never seen or read (or played the computer game) Dune so i'm not quite sure if im getting the flavor. But thats cool. Hazezon is my favourite commander actually.

I found the way to run over all your opponents is token doublers. I would suggest Parallel Lives is a better choice than Doubling Season . There is only the Sarkan walker that gives your guys +1+1 counters, you arent getting the value out of the enchantment and its CMC is 5. You're better off with Parallel Lives or Anointed Procession . But the best token doubler is Flameshadow Conjuring is the best i find. If you have an extra red mana to spare you will create a token copy of hazezon until end of turn, sacrifice the real one to the legendary rule. The card is two for one, sac outlet and token doubler.

Cathars' Crusade is bananas too. If you got tons of land and a token doubler, you'll get some monstrous tokens. I've dealt over 700 damage with that thing, enough to kill off every player in the LGS at

Creatures with Changeling would work really well for this. I did a budget build for her once using some and it worked really well. It can be hard to find specific egg cards, but something like Runed Stalactite might help bolster your deck performance. I mean, if everything is an egg all you need is sac triggers. Lots of those in white/green/red.

Feed the Pack like mechanics would spread your board wider and give Atla her trigger. Anything you can use as a sac advantage is recommended to moving your eggs. I also used populate mechanics from Selesnya cards like Trostani, Selesnya's Voice to get more eggs without having to slot expensive cards like Parallel Lives or Anointed Procession .

Doubling Season just to have a redundancy with Parallel Lives

Really like this idea for her as the commander, I'll look into it a bit and give some recommendations.

Tendershoot Dryad will make a saporling during each upkeep meaning if it isn't taken out fast you will end up with an army of 3/3 plants.

A good card for some mana ramp would be Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip flips I to a large source of mana that can be very beneficial with all the tokens you intend to make.

Shamanic Revelation costs 1 less than Collective Unconscious and has the potential upside of making a lot of life for each creature with power 4 or more.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is a good land for after you make a lot of green tokens because it will put a counter on each one that entered that turn.

Beacon of Creation will give you a large board late into the game and will shuffle back into the library after being cast.

Bow of Nylea is a cool card that can make your creatures difficult blocks by giving them all death touch as well as giving you some value with the tap ability.

There is obviously Doubling Season , Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor but those have all gotten pretty expensive over time.
