Sprout Swarm Discussion

A good way to abuse a Card combo in your deck would involve an infinite spam of tokens.Using Cream of the Crop +Into the Wilds + Intruder Alarm + Sprout Swarm creates the card that you want to see next as well as providing a large quantity of replenishable creatures

Why does everyone always forget Sprout Swarm ?

Solid deck, lots of good cards that make me wish I had a bigger budget. Good thinking about removal in case of commander damage, but when it comes to removal for commanders, you might want to consider options that keep your opponents from just recasting them. Enchantments like Darksteel Mutation , Faith's Fetters , and (if you want to be silly) Lignify can neuter a commander without actually removing it from the field, as opposed to cards like Banishing Light , since the exile effect would just send it straight back to the command zone. There are also cards like Oblation and Condemn to tuck the commander back into a player's deck and prevent them from recasting it until they eventually draw it again.

Not a big fan of Battle Mastery or Unflinching Courage , since they die when the creature they're enchanting dies. Perhaps consider replacing them with something that can be reused, like Loxodon Warhammer or Rancor .

And on a final note, no token deck is complete without Sprout Swarm .

I don't really see what purpose Preeminent Captain serves, since your only other Soldier spell is Mentor of the Meek. Might I suggest replacing it with Sprout Swarm , a Saproling maker with both Convoke and Buyback that no token deck is complete without.

I tend to prefer Sprout Swarm over Scatter the Seeds but that may just be me.

I would definitely say that the following cards are worth putting in the deck:Arcanis the Omnipotent for the card draw

Chord of Calling (especially with the up coming reprint)

Counterspell as it is a great counter

Dismiss into Dream with the amount of targeting you can do with multiple untaps, derevi can start killing opponents creatures

Ertai, Wizard Adept another way to counter spells, plus is a wizard

Green Sun's Zenith for the tutoring, same with chord

Magewright's Stone , Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Rings of Brighthearth for the untap/copying of abilities

Sprout Swarm is a great way to build tokens.

Glen Elendra Archmage should also be considered.

Overall you have a wizard subtheme so maybe look at cards that help wizards?

Sprout Swarm I have come to realize is greatChord of Calling is fantastic for finding Prophet of Kruphix and Azami, Lady of Scrolls and on that note Green Sun's Zenith can find a plethora of answersI love Arcanis the Omnipotent since draw three plus protection is greatErtai, Wizard Adept can be a good safety net if you can get enough mana for this, he is rather mana hungry

Opportunity is okay, I like it cause I like the massive draw and I am rarely disappointed by it

Minamo, School at Water's Edge is fantastic and just a great card

Counterspell is always just a powerful fall-back

Swan Song is efficient and can win counter battles and stop annoying plays

Mother of Runes is good, one of the best one drops in the game and protection is very useful

Archivist is fine, seems a wee bit weak but hey card draw is card draw

Galvanic Alchemist needs a bit more synergy with more cards to make it worthwhile. I tried it with the thought that with azami its great, but the commander isn't azami and derevi wants a bit better rate on the body

Akroma's Memorial and Dismiss into Dream are in the same camp. both are very powerful, incredibly board state warping seven drops that get exponentially better with tokens but are fine on their own. With tokens they are great, and Squirrel Nest and Sprout Swarm are good token makers. So yeah, these cards are good.

Walking Atlas needs a lot of card draw to be worthwhile, and is better in non green decks. There are more efficient ramp spells out there and if you want a ramp spell that works with untaps try Thawing Glaciers

Rhys the Redeemed and Rings of Brighthearth are great cards the more I look at the deck, rhys helps the small token subtheme, while rings give all the activated abilities double power.rhys can be found by Green Sun's Zenith , and rings are fine with things like azami or the like.

Tezzeret the Seeker Can help find rings and other rocks if you end up going that route, and if you do there is always an artifact land package to help tezz fix mana.

And if you are running green suns zenith you can always think of Dryad Arbor which gives you a one mana ramp spell with GSZ

Your curve is awful, and I'd recommend running Birds of Paradise . It is a mana dork that lets you flashback Lingering Souls .

Ok, I'll name all of the cards that are really poor in this deck.

1) Emmara Tandris

2) Trostani's Summoner

3) Grove of the Guardian

4) Sundering Growth

5) Eyes in the Skies

6) Selesnya Guildgate

Honestly, if you want a half decent token deck, get the modern event deck and make some improvements. This deck wouldn't do too well in an event, but is ok in casual play depending on your meta. Budget cards that I might run are:

1) Intangible Virtue

2) Path to Exile (only just budget, $4-5 a piece)

3) Armada Wurm (just about playable, better than a lot of other stuff here)

4) Blade Splicer

5) Raise the Alarm

6) Captain's Call

7) Cenn's Enlistment

8) Conqueror's Pledge

9) Darien, King of Kjeldor

10) Doomed Traveler

11) Fists of Ironwood

12) Spectral Procession

13) Gather the Townsfolk

14) Growing Ranks

15) Imperious Perfect

16) Increasing Devotion

17) Kazandu Tuskcaller

18) Luminarch Ascension

19) Launch the Fleet

20) Master of the Wild Hunt

21) Honor of the Pure (depending on how white your deck is)

22) Militia's Pride

23) Mitotic Slime (just for trolls)

24) Doubling Season

25) Archangel of Thune (not exactly budget, but works nicely with Trostani)

26) Rhys the Redeemed

27) Selesnya Charm

28) Slime Molding

29) Sprout Swarm

30) Thraben Doomsayer

31) Thragtusk

32) Timely Reinforcements

33) White Sun's Zenith

34) Wolfbriar Elemental
