Primal Vigor


If one or more tokens would be put onto the battlefield, twice that many of those tokens are put onto the battlefield instead.

If one or more +1/+1 counters would be placed on a creature, twice that many +1/+1 counters are placed on that creature instead.

Primal Vigor Discussion

Sorry for the double-post. I just realized: If you want double counters on Thantis, Primal Vigor is probably the card you want to use. As a bonus, it gives your opponents double counters from the Hunted creatures!

Welcome to EDH. Before I begin giving you suggestions about this deck I just wanted to let you know a little about the EDH format.1) EDH decks usually have about 36+ lands and some additional mana sources. I see you are running Cultivate and Kodama's Reach as well as a few artifact mana sources, but you will probably need to up your land count. 2) Most EDH decks that use their commander use Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots as ways to protect it and to give it haste so it doesn't just dies every time you cast it.

For mana sources Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are great in your deck.

You can add Poison-Tip Archer to the group of cards that do damage when a creature dies.

Viscera Seer is a great sac outlet.

Skullclamp is a great source of card draw, especially in this style of deck.

Since you are making tokens... Ezuri's Predation and Sprout Swarm might be fun. Primal Vigor is another Doubling Season type of effect. My personal favorite in token decks is Eldrazi Monument

As for cuts to make, to make room for 12+ lands you have some tough choices to make (more cuts if you make any changes). Here are my thoughts and reasons:

Atarka, World Render I know your general is a dragon, but not really many other things in your deck are, so this might be a bit of a win-more card.

Beastcaller Savant you can get better acceleration somewhere else 1/1 creatures don't stick around long.

Burning-Tree Emissary 2/2s get outclassed quick in EDH and you aren't trying to storm.

Goblin Bushwhacker one time effect, then not much. This wants to be a Craterhoof Behemoth or at least an End-Raze Forerunners .

Kalonian Behemoth big creatures are big, but not sure it does much in your deck. Gets some Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots and build your own.

Phage the Untouchable a great creature and a lot of fun, but probably better in another deck.

Riftsweeper I don't think this works the way you think it does.

Ulvenwald Hydra and Zendikar Incarnate , these are better served in a lands deck

Autumn's Veil situational based on your groups meta.

Tainted Strike you better make sure to kill them with the only poison you are running

Titanic Growth +4/+4 might be nice in some cases, but I'm sure it is worth the slot, most things that are trying to kill your creature will probably still kill them after the pump.

Explore up the land count to make this matter.

Mana Cylix run better fixing so you don't need to filter your mana.

Hope this helps. I like your take on Prosh with tokens looks like a lot of fun.

Food Chain is always good in a Prosh deck but it’s pretty expensive... and another card that would be great in here is Doubling Season strictly better than Primal Vigor in all areas besides price tag.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am looking to get Doubling Season eventually - Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor are decent imitations for now. I hadn't considered Vraska, Golgari Queen. I have that one and Vraska, Relic Seeker, which would go well thematically. The others look like good additions too, but I'll need to hunt them down.

Say I do get those cards - which should get removed? New to Commander, especially constructing decks, so I'm not sure what should go. Would I sub Grave Pact for Dictate of Erebos since they do basically the same thing, only a little cheaper? Or remove something else so that I can double dip that effect? In Garruk's Wake for Gaze of Granite or something else to have 2 board wipe type spells?

Here are some mainly budget suggested adds:
Beastmaster Ascension - attack with prossh and 6 kobolds and they all get buffed.
Dictate of Erebos can visually be cast quicker in a three color deck before grave pact.
Journey to Eternity  Flip - some of the best budget recursion.
Pattern of Rebirth - can be used to get a combo piece like blood artist, or to get some board changer.
Champion of Lambholt - let's you make your creature almost unblockable.
Brawn and Anger are good especially in decks with built in ways to get into grave yard.
Diabolic Intent has dropped in price since reprint, it's good on token decks and cheaper than the main 2 tutors.
Primal Vigor is a viable doubling season, but only cast when ready to combo.
Phyrexian Altar has dropped to like $18, not budget but half of what it was. But Pitiless Plunderer will also work with prossh in play.
Creakwood Liege - buffs commander and makes tokens.
Smothering Abomination - good card draw in any black token deck. Sidisi, Undead Vizier easily recurable tutor.

Forkbeard on Trostani Tokens

A few no-brainer suggestions that'll add some spice to Trostani's life (not going to suggest Doubling Season cause it's probably too much $$$): Anointed Procession, Aura Shards, Beastmaster Ascension, Cathars' Crusade, Chord of Calling, Cryptolith Rite, Divine Visitation, Eladamri's Call, Glare of Subdual, March of the Multitudes & Primal Vigor

Hopefully that's a few token deck staples + ideas to get you going, good luck!

Amyas Thanks firend! I checked your list, and I love how vastly different it is than my own. Sometimes I wish I could build decks in such a flavour manner instead of just powerplaying. To be honest, I am kind of scared of running Primal Vigor as I am usually racing with another Prossh, a Ghave, Guru of Spores or an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice just to name a few of the competitors. I do miss some of the cards on your list, but I'd give your deck a try after I get bored of the linear-tutoring playstile of my own :3
