Parallel Lives

Enchantment

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.

Drakoy07 on Atraxa's Wrath of Life

1 day ago

Hey ThaneGarrusThanks for the visit :) and the UpVote! :) I appreciate it!

No, I've never considered it, but doesn't Sun Droplet seem a little slow? Or am I reading the card wrong? Great ability to gain 'charge counters' from taking damage, but if you can only remove 1 each upkeep to gain life then it's limited to the number of opponents you're facing, so you can never really max out the potential life gain. If you have 3 opponents you'll only ever gain 4 life by the time it comes back round to your turn no matter how many counters are on it, unless you have upkeep doubling effects Paradox Haze , and life doubling effects Alhammarret's Archive to really make good use of this card. I just don't think I have enough support to make a card like this work efficiently. It would work better in a more dedicated life gain...artifact...angel deck I think especially if you could make use of Resplendent Angel Angelic Accord Bubbling Cauldron Trading Post Would be epic!...chuck some green in there for some extra token doubling effects Parallel Lives to back up Anointed Procession ....ooof! drool! I think I would make that deck =P

Initially however when I first saw your recommendation I thought...hmmm mass counter moving...Is that a thing? If you were able to take damage then gain charge counters you can use Sun Droplet like a battery then use Power Conduit (the only card I could find that could work in this scenario) to move counters from Sun Droplet onto any of our other artifacts/creatures that would love some free counters for mana and card draw. It would be basically the same thing we do with Unspeakable Symbol + Crystalline Crawler / Fathom Mage but very much slower, but it can also put counters on Pentad Prism which is a plus. That would be epic! But I don't have space for these pieces (100 cards and it can never fit everything we want) and to really pull out the potential of this combination of cards...I think I'd probably have to run some untap shenanigans Unwinding Clock . It would be cool to be able to ramp from being attacked with damage, but it would take quite a while to setup. Together powerful, but as separate cards they don't stand very well on their own as they would rely on each other to make any real impact on the game.

Damn I can ramble.... Thanks again for the UpVote! If you were to put in Sun Droplet what would you swap out for it?

Whitehamma on Atarka, World Render Copies

I noticed no one mentioned the legendary rule question. There is some cards that say legendary rule doesn't apply but it helps everyone. I would point you towards a token doubler like Parallel Lives because there is Dragon tokens but mainly to combo with my favorite card Helm of the Host make copies of any legendary creature and the copy isn't legendary. Plus they gain haste ha.

I am posting a comment because of the Advertise your deck game forum. I can't see shit i would change there may be a few things i would say but I don't know what all synergizes with what. I mean it looks like everything goes together so who knows what taking one thing out does to 20 strategies. I guess though since i play a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck I have a good infinite colorless mana combo that you could use in this deck. It would work wonders with sacrificing. My combo is Ghave, Guru of Spores Ashnod's Altar Parallel Lives Cathars' Crusade you don't need the cathar's crusade but man does it buff everyone fast with the combo. The combo you can use is a little different. You have the token doubler Anointed Procession and Ashnod's Altar so you would need something like Thopter Squadron which you have a thopter card already so you could use them also to sac another similar card is Pentavus all have similar effects to Ghave, Guru of Spores

(please leave some feedback and comment what you think would work and upvote) My deck:


Ghave, Guru of Spores

Nanande on Trostani lifeparty!

I would definitely add these cards: Phyrexian Processor , Phyrexian Rebirth , Slime Molding (better than it looks since paying 11 mana will give you a 3 mana 10/10 each turn after), Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage (populate mana-sink late game), Parallel Evolution , Illusionist's Bracers (populate twice, for the same price!), Acidic Slime (just an awesome green staple), Sakura-Tribe Elder , Phantom General , Angel of Sanctions (INFINITE REMOVAL EACH TURN!), Beast Within (staple removal in green), Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life (mana acc and lategame big tokens in one)

I would consider these also: Worldspine Wurm , Parallel Lives (awesome, but a bit $$$), Rootborn Defenses (stops a board-wipe and pops), Trostani's Judgment (high cmc, but good value), Overrun (probably wins you the game if you have a few creatures out), Hydra Broodmaster , Austere Command (wipes opponents' boards, but a bit $$$), Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth Tirel (both Elspeths have great board wipes for token decks), Oblivion Ring , Yavimaya Elder , Ajani Goldmane / Ajani, Caller of the Pride (both have great synergy with big lifegains), Baloth Cage Trap (P.S you can play this and populate as combat trick!), Beast Attack (the flashback makes this a good comeback-card in case of board wipe and you need to get the pop-engine going), Blade Splicer (very powerful early-mid game)

I would 100% cut these cards: Take Heart , Centaur Healer , Healer's Hawk , Parhelion Patrol , Candlelight Vigil , Conviction , Noble Purpose , Flight of Equenauts , Siege Wurm , Bounty of Might (no trample=hard to use)

I would also consider cutting these: Lone Rider  Flip, Sumala Woodshaper , Sunscorch Regent , Verdant Eidolon , Scatter the Seeds , Wake the Reflections , Ajani Unyielding

Pretty sweet deck!

If you want more token doubling effects, you could consider stuff like Parallel Lives and Second Harvest

Also if you're looking for some bigger tokens, Desolation Twin can be pretty sweet together with token doublers.

If also had a lot of fun with Mycoloth (and other token generators) and Parallel Lives
