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.

usaDiabetic Westvale Abbey  Flip seems pretty nice, although more of a backup since the deck has so many finishersTrigon of Corruption seems really mana intense for only 1 counter a turn

Parallel Lives is good, but im not sure if it's necessary since the deck makes so many tokens and i try to avoid some more expensive cards.Thanks for the suggestions tho

Maybe throw in Westvale Abbey  Flip as a finisher.

Trigon of Corruption for more counters.

Parallel Lives for more tokens.

Either way, sweet build. I'm looking to build a Hapatra deck, and yours looks awesome, epically for the price!

I'm thinking of running The Scarab God in a 5 colour good stuffs deck. If I etenalize a legendary permenant with Parallel Lives on the field, will the legend's rule take place and kill one of the 2 tokens generated?

Hey there, Is it okay for your playgroup that you use a non-legendary card as your commander? If so and you will continue to use Godsire, then you should consider tokendoublers. I am aware that some of them are kind of expensive, but on the other side, some of them arent: Anointed Procession, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor.

Populate, can work very good as well, because you play with huge Tokens: Druid's Deliverance, Growing Ranks, Rootborn Defenses, Sundering Growth, Trostani's Judgment, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage, Wake the Reflections, Wayfaring Temple, also great: Samut, Voice of Dissent.

Altough you have to think about, wich route you want to go with the deck. I would say swarm with tokens and go broad, not Voltron. But if you want to Voltron like hell, you should consider the follwing: Ramp like f*** in the first few turns. Godsire is expensive! and then give it a boost! Godsire has the Potential of killing in one hit if you combine it with the following:

Double Strike: Assault Strobe, Avatar of Slaughter, Battle Mastery, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Boros Charm, Duelist's Heritage, Fireshrieker, Psychotic Fury, Samut, the Tested, Silverblade Paladin, Temur Battle Rage.

Combine this with +X'er: Berserk, Dragon Throne of Tarkir on one of the Tokens, Fatal Frenzy, Nantuko Mentor, Onward, Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex, Rush of Blood, Wine of Blood and Iron, Xenagos, God of Revels.

I hope i could help you.

"This card doubles your ETB triggers and if you have two it quadruples it."

I believe that with two copies in play, ETB abilities are only triple, not quadruple. In my experience, bonuses like this are additive, not multiplicative.

I.E. Parallel Lives gets triggered by Vile Rebirth, you get two zombie tokens. Two copies of Parallel Lives trigger separately as the Rebirth resolve, resulting in three total zombie tokens. Four copies of Parallel Lives and four copies of Anointed Procession would only create nine total zombies from casting a single Vile Rebirth.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the comments! Obviously Doubling Season and Parallel Lives are out due to colour restrictions. Dictate of Erebos would be good but already have Grave Pact, hard to find slots for both. More demons are something I took a long look at, Bloodgift, Rune-Scarred & Overseer are hard cuts, might revisit later. Have also thought about building up the reanimator package, but would like to see how leaning on Rakdos himself works first. Deck might straight up be better as red/black reanimator though. Tree of Perdition is also something I have strongly considered, might be a good rattle snake for early game, as the deck builds up.

Maybe consider: Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, Lotus Cobra, Ghost Town, Burgeoning, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Parallel Lives, Skullmulcher and Elemental Mastery just to name a few that would do extremely well in this build. Here is my adaption of Omnath:
