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.

entheogeneral on gate watch assemble! {work in progress}

Well, I would assume that the only reason he would run a card like that would be to double his planeswalkers' loyalty counter as they enter the battlefield, for that is the ONLY way it works, but that's another story. Parallel Lives would only be useful if he were running specifically tokens or counters, for it does NOT work for planeswalkers. If I were you, shadow, I would run at least 2 Tezzeret the Seeker s for his synergies with The Chain Veil. Also, I would recommend using at least two Nevinyrral's Disks in there because it does not kill your planeswalkers. These have proved useful in the past for me, just a suggestion.

I saw an earlier thread relating to Doubling Season, so am sorry if it is no longer relevant. Just wanted to let you know that Parallel Lives is cheaper than Doubling Season, though doesn't have the effect where tokens are put on a permanent creature unfortunately

Monomanamaniac on Omnath, Locus of Armageddon v1.7

I actually really like r/g edh, it's actually pretty fun. You should consider the original omnath Omnath, Locus of Mana. Also loving the mana fetch, you could speed it up with Courser of Kruphix. And for tokens of run Doubling Season and Parallel Lives. Additionally you could consider Burning-Tree Shaman, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Rampaging Baloths, Atarka's Command, Gruul Charm, Signal the Clans, Clan Defiance, Ground Assault, Exploding Borders, Fires of Yavimaya, Xenagos, God of Revels. The list goes on. I might suggest you take a look at the gatherer, it has every card ever printed and an intelligent means to search for them

It might be fun to go more creature-heavy and focus on an overwhelming board presence with a little bit of spot removal for different card types. Path to Exile, maybe? A Banishing Light and an Oblivion Ring for any permanents? Your board wipes seem too hard on your deck.

Avenger of Zendikar might complement Mycoloth and help with your enchantment triggers. Birthing Pod might be good to test over Evolutionary Leap. Pathbreaker Ibex would be a strong inclusion, as well. Perhaps Caustic Caterpillar.

I'm working on semi-green creature lists for Mazirek Counters and Prossh Mill; they might include some helpful cards.

Since you'll have a lot of tokens available for chump blocking, you might like Fecundity or Greater Good (i.e. block --> die --> draw or block --> sac --> draw --> draw). Doubling Season or Parallel Lives can help here, too.

Domri Rade, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar might be good walkers for this deck.

Have fun playing!

MetaPenguinBomb on Trostani wants more friends the deck

1 week ago

so this ended up a way longer list than i expected. anyway if i were building trostani i'd probably include these but commander decks are largly personal and often just whatever cards are easily available, so use whatever you think would work.

Boreal Druid, Joraga Treespeaker; a couple more mana dorks.

Farhaven Elf, Wood Elves; ramps and leaves a body.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc ; crazy mana acceleration when its transformed.

Evolutionary Leap; trade in your tokens for other stuff.

Mitotic Slime; a lot of bodies.

Verdant Force; makes a lot of tokens if left alone for even one round of turns.

Twilight Drover; unsure about this in trostani, its been good in my ghave deck and flyers are useful.

Hydra Broodmaster; hella big army.

Increasing Devotion, Secure the Wastes, Nomads' Assembly, Deploy to the Front; a lot of tokens from single cards.

Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Harmonic Sliver, Aura Shards; removal for opponents' artifacts and enchantments.

Terastodon; a big boy that blows up some stuff, you can even blow up your lands to make creatures in a pinch.

Mentor of the Meek; some card draw.

Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession; double tokens.

Rhox Faithmender; double life.

Aetherflux Reservoir; one way to kill your opponents with your high life total.

Eldrazi Monument; should be easy enough to sac one token per turn to keep.

Collective Blessing, Path of Bravery, Dictate of Heliod, Bloodspore Thrinax, Gavony Township, Cathars' Crusade; make your tokens bigger.

Overrun; another overwhelming stampede.

again, i'm not saying run exactly these cards, but hopefully some of them look useful to you.

Oh and maybe to help with a bit of ramp, you could get Awakening Zone and/or From Beyond. You could also use those tokens as chump blockers if needed.

Anointed Procession? Parallel Lives?

Hey there! Welcome to the wonderful world of Commander! First of all, I would strongly recommend thinking about Trostani, Selesnya's Voice as your commander for a token, lifegain theme. Then, I would consider the following cards:

In any case, I hope you grow to love Commander as much as I to; it's extremely fun to play! Enjoy!
