Parallel Lives Discussion

DRmagic2017 on Elven Swarm

If you play tribal deck you need something to boost your creatures. Some ideas: Adaptive Automaton,Metallic Mimic, Coat of Arms, Obelisk of Urd. Ezuri, Renegade Leader can regenerate and boost your Elves.
If you want to swarm the table with tokens you should think about Dwynen's Elite + Parallel Lives + Second Harvest.
Good luck!

Panharmonicon does not interact with either Anointed Procession nor Parallel Lives.

Both Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives have a replacement effect that changes a specific event. In this case, the event is one or more tokens being placed onto the battlefield. If they were triggered abilities, they would read, "Whenever one or more creature tokens enter the battlefield under your control, create X more where X is the number of tokens that entered."

This alone would mean it goes infinite with itself, and we can't have a card that does that. So instead it simply sees tokens about to enter the battlefield, and makes twice that many instead.

Parallel Lives could do a lot of work here.

From Gatherer pages for the cards:

9/22/2011 If you control two Parallel Lives, then the number of tokens created is four times the original number. If you control three, then the number of tokens created is eight times the original number, and so on.

4/18/2017 If you control two Anointed Processions, then the number of tokens created is four times the original number. If you control three, then the number of tokens created is eight times the original number, and so on.

These aren't rulings based on the fact the permanents have the same names, but rather a property of multiple replacement effects being present.

No. There is a single event "Create a 1/1 colorless Sliver creature token," and there are two relevant replacement effects, that of Parallel Lives and that of Anointed Procession. You choose one of those replacement effects, let's say Parallel Lives, it doesn't really matter. The event is now "Create two 1/1 colorless Sliver creature token." You now look for any replacement effects that have not been applied to the event. Anointed Procession is still relevant, and it's unlikely any new effects are relevant, so you apply the only relevant replacement effect. The event is now "Create four 1/1 colorless Sliver creature token," and it's unlikely there are any other relevant replacement effects that have not yet been applied.

Say I have Sliver Queen, Parallel Lives, and Anointed Procession on the field. I activate Sliver Queen. Do the effects of Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession bounce off each other infinitely? Key words for both being "If an effect would put tokens onto the battlefield..."

I have a heavier focus on negative counters but I like your snake focus. Mine if curious Mistress of Poisons. I just watched you deck tech and wanted to point out you do have at least one infinite combo, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Blowfly Infestation + 2 1/1s. This allows you to infinitely set off hapatra by killing 1 1/1 and getting another. Obviously need Parallel Lives, Zulaport Cutthroat, or something to abuse the interaction. I also think Doubling Season will generally be more painful then helpful with the negative counters but Concordant Crossroads is very strong for when you pop out 10 snakes after Black Sun's Zenith or if you were to use Midnight Banshee.

This is a really cool version. A few things worth considering though are Concordant Crossroads, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Blood Artist. I wouldn't bother with Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse with just two colors but maybe you have a good reason in your meta, seems like it'd be better to just have another forest and swamp. My version Mistress of Poisons if you are interested, I left out infect as my group is pretty casual and still has a few new to the game types. I see Doubling Season in your maybe board which I wuold think of as a nonbo for this deck, too many negatives on your own stuff already to try and control it. Parallel Lives would be much better and easier on the wallet.
