Twilight Drover Discussion

Twilight Drover goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar, I think?

Mentor of the Meek is really good.

Viscera Seer is good for deck cycling.

Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are soft locks in this deck.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose MIGHT be a better commander. Whilst she costs more mana, she comes online a bit quicker, potentially.

Karmic Guide, Reveillark and Blasting Station is an instant win. Both creatures are good enough to include on their own because value, but they can also just single-handedly win games. They create sacrifice-recursion loops where you can sacrifice them then one reanimates the other and then you rinse and repeat.

Sun Titan isn't optional. It just wins games.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are good token producers. So is Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

Fleshbag Marauder is pretty great. You can just keep playing it and renimating it for some soft locks. Particularly with cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One.

Unburial Rites is great because you cast it twice. So is Lingering Souls.

Buried Alive is a really good tutor-thats-not-a-tutor kind of thing.

Victimize is just value.

Nim Deathmantle protects everything from death.

You can play Smokestack in decks like this if you want to be a dick.

Cathars' Crusade is a great win condition. Combined with like Lingering Souls it's just insane.

Attrition is just borderline unfair.

That's about all I can think of.

Spawning Pit is a bit clunky/slow. Given that you already have a sufficient number of sac outlets already there are definitely some more efficient cards to run (some of which have already been listed above).

Given the creature recursion you have with cards like Reassembling Skeleton and the like, you could get a lot of mileage out of Gutter Grime.

You also have a lot of cards to take advantage of token creatures but not a lot of cards to generate creature tokens. Fungal Sprouting, Increasing Devotion, Saproling Migration, Rhys the Redeemed, Geist-Honored Monk, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, Mycoloth, Noosegraf Mob, Tendershoot Dryad, and Twilight Drover are some solid options in addition to what has already been suggested above.

Some land recommendations would be Westvale Abbey  Flip, Vault of the Archangel, Windbrisk Heights, Gavony Township, and Arch of Orazca.

Also, if going the token creature route, there isnt a better board wipe than Hour of Reckoning

Ghave was my first commander deck and is still one of my favorites. Always enjoy seeing other peoples take on him.

Forgot to mention Crystalline Crawler and Phyrexian Altar, and Mana Reflection to get the most out of those cards and Ashnod's. Ant Queen and Sacred Mesa are probably the best repeatable token generators in these colors. Twilight Drover is also great if you have Cathars' Crusade. Eldrazi Displacer works well with Brood Monitor and Eyeless Watcher to generate tokens.

Thank you, I get it now. I think trying Phyrexian Altar instead of Ashnods threw me off. I'm probably missing something with Ghave, Sigil Captain, and Phyrexian Altar. The same problem comes up with replacing Sigil Captain with Twilight Drover: I keep running out of mana to keep it going.

Have you seen Slimefoot, the Stowaway? easy infinite damage with Ashnods and Doubling Season

JoltsOfEnergy on Crovax wants an anthem

4 months ago

Not bad. There's definitely a lot of synergy here. Here are some cards you might want to consider: Mother of Runes for protection, Weathered Wayfarer and Solemn Simulacrum for some more land insurance/ramp, Geist-Honored Monk and Angel of Invention are both great token generators on bodies, Path to Exile and Oblation are both decent spot removal. I also very much like Grasp of Fate as it exiles something from each of your opponents. Mind Stone and Hedron Archive are both nice mana rocks that can turn into cards when you need them. Finally, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar has become a lot more affordable since it rotated out and works great with your deck.

Cards I would consider cutting since they are either not that good or too slow for what they do: Court Street Denizen, Frontline Medic, God-Favored General, Intrepid Hero, Precinct Captain, Requiem Angel, Twilight Drover, Call for Unity, Gideon's Intervention, Mobilization, Deploy to the Front.

KingRamz on Queen Marchesa Tokens

I feel like this deck is not focused enough on the theme of "make tons of tokens." You have a lot of cards that make tokens, but many of them don't really do it efficiently. Some examples:

Awaken the Sky Tyrant - makes only one token, and only if an opponent lets you make it.

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts - makes tokens only if your opponents let you

Skyline Despot - makes one token per turn if your opponents let you (or if you leave back plenty of defense)

Ghirapur Gearcrafter - makes one token

Descent of the Dragons - this is secretly a one-shot anthem that doesn't let you attack the turn you cast it

Dragonmaster Outcast - makes one token per turn on turn 6+ if your opponents can't kill a 1/1

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs - makes tokens if your opponents let you

Custodi Soulbinders - makes tokens for 3 mana each if there are a decent number of creatures out when you cast it

You get the idea.

Personally I'd try to run five or six anthem effects and hit the token makers really hard. I counted thirteen anthem effects in this version of the deck. Also, one anthem effect comes to mind that you aren't running - Jazal Goldmane. That card should play better than either Mikaeus or Ravos (both of which I'd cut).

Efficient token makers you could run: White Sun's Zenith, Bitterblossom (harder to kill than Outcast), Secure the Wastes, Goblin Trenches, Storm Herd, Sacred Mesa, Requiem Angel, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Thopter Assembly (if you don't run other Thopter makers), Hanweir Garrison, Rise of the Hobgoblins, Twilight Drover. I think Legion's Landing could potentially work in here too - it's inefficient from a mana perspective but it's a one-drop that shouldn't be too hard to flip and at that point it taps for mana. Which brings me to

Lands: There's quite a few lands that I think could play well here. Kjeldoran Outpost, Kher Keep, Vault of the Archangel, Hanweir Battlements (if you run the Garrison), or Windbrisk Heights. Creature lands are also secretly good here because they benefit from your anthems and let you mount an offense even when untapping on an empty board after a sweeper. Ghitu Encampment, Needle Spires, Lavaclaw Reaches, Shambling Vent, Mishra's Factory and so on.

Haste: If you're going to make a ton of tokens, you really want to bash with them right away, before your opponents can sweep your board. I like Hammer of Purphoros here because it makes tokens and Ogre Battledriver because it doubles as a pseudo-Anthem, but there's also Fervor, Anger, Akroma's Memorial and probably other cards I haven't thought of.

I definitely think there's potential for this deck concept. Just remember that Dragon tokens and anthems don't go in the same deck (except Crucible of Fire). Good luck!

Hardened Scales, Twilight Drover and Requiem Angel are ones that i considered but cut, although i do love how they fit in the deck and i would love to eventually fit them in, as well as Walking Ballista. I have chosen Dictate of Erebos and not Grave Pact because of the mana requirement, though again both would be good. how does Unruly Mob and Rot Shambler feed the combo exactly in a way my other pieces dont?

Philigan87 on Ghave, Daddy of Spores and Combos

Ghave is a really dangerous Commander, as infinite combos are easy to achieve. Phyrexian Altar and Earthcraft can act as pseudo versions of adhnods.

Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact turn your sacs into removal.

Rot Shambler, Twilight Drover, Requiem Angel, Unruly Mob and Hardened Scales all feed the combo.

Use responsibly.
