Have you considered Harvest Season or Saproling Symbiosis?

Wild Pair is especially fun with small expensive creatures like bane of progress and prime speaker zegana as easy targets. Nature's Will, Bear Umbra, & Sword of Feast and Famine let you tap out to pump before you attack and then you will still have mana to play stuff after combat. Stolen Identity, Mistblade Shinobi, Coastal Piracy, Harvest Season, Sword of the Animist are fun ways to get value from attacking. Fungal Sprouting, Spontaneous Generation, Saproling Symbiosis, Captain's Claws are some of my favorite ways to make a quick token army. Coat of Arms is like the quintessential tribal pump spell, I'm sure you would get good use of it. Happy gathering!

Observations from last night: too many basics, draw is sorely needed, ramp suite seemed fine (can maybe even cut one), and Saproling Symbiosis was an all-star.

Flagellum on Token Deck Name

Don't take this the wrong way, but I think this deck needs some direction. It's your first deck and half my decks still need guidance :) By that I mean I see a mix of big stompy creatures, +1/+1 counters, and tokens. To get the most out of Oviya I recommend sticking to either cheap token stuffs or low cost critters. This is so you can create a horde of tokens and then use Oviya to make big baddies.

The big stompy creatures like Dungrove Elder can all be cut since Oviya can make tokens bigger than them. Second, add in some pump spells like Beastmaster Ascension and evasion type stuff like Primal Rage (to go along side of Nylea). Now all your measly 1/1 servos are 6/6 giant tramplers. Bow of Nylea will serve you well and can clear the field with your tokens. Remember if your creatures have d/t and trample you only need to assign 1 point of damage for lethal and then deal the rest to your opponent.

Fabricate is a nice mechanic for Oviya and plays right into the +1/+1 counters theme. Of course you would most likely prefer to use the tokens rather than the counters. I would cut the more expensive ones listed here like Gladehart Cavalry. Champion of Lambholt is an all-star here and you already have her in the deck (Avenger of Zendikar likewise).

The ramp package can be tweaked too. Stuff like Kodama's Reach/Cultivate, Burgeoning, perhaps even Far Wanderings. Cheap mana dorks also add to the effect of Oviya.

Token Generators not listed:

Beacon of Creation

Ant Queen

Hornet Queen

Imperious Perfect

Jade Mage

Rampaging Baloths


Fungal Sprouting

Saproling Symbiosis

Parallel Lives

Doubling Season not budget friendly

Squirrel Nest

Wolfcaller's Howl

Wolfbriar Elemental

These are just a few of the things green has to offer. Note, not all of these will be ideal.

vibrabones Thanks for the help! Not sure how I missed Saproling Symbiosis, that looks sweet.I had Necrogenesis in my original pile of cards but had to cut to make space. I had also considered Intangible Virtue, but it seemed too narrow and cut it over other cards. I'm not sure about Varolz, but Wayfaring Temple seems perfect! The biggest problem I've encountered building this deck was what to cut. I also have a feeling my mana base might need some work. I'm not sure how to read the pie graph on the side, but it looks like I might need more green sources if I'm not mistaken. I plan to play test this Saturday but I'm going to try an add a few of those cards.

Saproling Symbiosis can help you crank out a huge horde of Saprolings quickly. Also, Varolz, the Scar-Striped can help you make use of your large number of creatures, as can Necrogenesis. Intangible Virtue and Wayfaring Temple are great cards for token-heavy decks.

Love the flavor, love the Saproling vibe, dig the name. +1 from me!
