I definitely considered Mikaeus, the Lunarch because of how cheap he can be to cast. But in most cases I just saved him until I had a Doubling Season out to make the most of him. He was pushed out to make room for more token generation like Awakening Zone . Gavony Township does what he does at a bit higher cost, but is only used late game when I have enough of a board presence and a Doubling Season for it to be worth it. card:Cathars' Crusade also does what Mikaeus, the Lunarch does, except it's totally explosive and tutorable.

I think that's the main reason they didn't want to reprint it outright and we got Parallel Lives instead.

I dig the combos and synergy!!! If you could speed it up a turn or two with more ramp. take out some of the 1x ofs to make it more consistent, the Mycoloth would stomp, bro! Craterhoof Behemoth would be an AWESOME finisher!!!! He'd do well as a 1x of.
I playtested this against deck:please-beat-this-deck. It did well, but my deck is a turn faster at a consistent turn 5 win. I do like the token decks!!!!
+1 keep tweaking!

I know I said to take out the 1x ofs and add a 1x of... lol. As a creature, a 1x isn't so bad. Especially w/ the CMC. While stuff like card:Cathars' Crusade and Entreat the Angels are good, there are cards in Modern that are better, such as Nest Invader or even Huntmaster of the Fells Flip , should you ever choose to go Naya. Either way, more copies of cards equals greater consistency.
June 28, 2012 12:46 a.m.
I think the numbers are fine where they are, to be honest.Anything that is less than 3 is that way because I don't want any more than 1 of them a game really.
card:Cathars' Crusade was made for this deck I find, I'm considering adding another.
Once Ajani, Caller of the Pride comes out I'm going to do a lot of testing with him, If he's as great for this deck as I think he is I might run a complete set. Entreat the Angels is probably on its way out.

Intangible Virtue cause having armies of vigilant dudes is just awesome plus it is very cheap to cast.
June 28, 2012 9:48 a.m.
I've thought a lot about Intangible Virtue . You'd think it'd be a auto-include in a deck like this, But I actually don't think it's as useful to me as just more token generation.
My guys almost always get a buff from Gavony Township or card:Cathars' Crusade, and Intangible Virtue doesn't have any synergy with Doubling Season , it would make card:Druids' Repository a little better, but I'm usually not afraid to swing with all my guys to get the charge anyways.
I'll put it in the maybe-board and do some tests with it.

blinking abilities + mycoloth = stupidity. Cloudshift is amazing for this deck. mycoloth hits for a turn or two, generates tokens, end of opponents turn - cloudshift him to eat everything he's spawned to put out even more tokens.
June 28, 2012 10:02 p.m.
I don't think blinking is really the answer in this deck, I'll usually end up casting Mycoloth 's devour for 4-12, which is plenty with Devour 2. it might be useful to keep peices on the board, But unless I add cards like Cloudgoat Ranger or Captain of the Watch , but I think Primordial Hydra and Mycoloth are big enough threats.

Birds of paridice is underrated if i could make a deck of only that i would (i have enough)

For this deck he is explosive!
Not regretting the card:Soul's Attendant, but I'm kind of missing Raise the Alarm .
I'm also probably gunna keep Primordial Hydra .

I'm finding Elspeth Tirel to be a bit counter-productive, since her ultimate will actually destroy your creatures/enchantments/Ajani. Have you considered using Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Elspeth, Knight-Errant to protect your non-token permanents?
Minor nitpick though. Doubling Season doesn't quadruple Primordial Hydra's counters, it triples it instead.
July 6, 2012 3:22 p.m.
Elspeth, Knight-Errant is the better Elspeth in my opinion as well, but not for this deck.
Elspeth Tirel is crazy and has awesome synergy with a lot of my deck. I've gained 100+ on turn 5 from her +2, and anything giving you 100 life is good in my books. All 3 of her abilities are very viable, +2 for lifegain to make Ajani, Caller of the Pride 's ultimate more awesome. Her -2 to create blockers to protect Ajani and herself. Her -5 is actually very useful against scary decks that keep ahead of me, sure I loose my Awakening Zone and Doubling Season , but I still probably have 5-20 tokens which is a HUGE advantage. It's not something that I actively build up to or is a win condition but Elspeth Tirel 's ultimate has saved me more than a few games, her other abilities are what I'm really trying to abuse with this deck though.

Brewed this before the Allied fetches were reprinted.
Haven't had a chance to go back over all my old decks in a while.

I think this deck could be more budget with out the very expensive manabase(and other very expensive cards), so i kinda did that. Great deck!
May 21, 2016 10:15 a.m.
Craterhoof Behemoth? Sejiri Steppe? Silence? Path to Exile? Things to consider. +1!!!
July 29, 2016 3:40 a.m.
I've been playing around with this myself. The synergy of this deck can be insanely explosive. There were a few things though I'd like to throw out, get your opinion on it.
Cryptolith Rite for 1G gives all creatures Tap:Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.
I tried Awakening Zone but found this one more effective, Awakening Zone can be crazy late game, but, by then you're already sitting on a thousand+ tokens and a bazillion life. The Cryptolith Rite gets out quicker, and provides faster mana.
Devout Invocation is pretty much a game ending. Tap any creature to put a 4/4 flying angel token into play. It's expensive at 6W, but this deck can generate insane levels of mana anyways. It's more reliable than entreat the angels and far more capable, i.e. you don't need to hope for a miracle draw, and this tops out at 7 CMC.
My main problem has been card draw actually. I've been running a couple Sphinx's Revelation, and they're nice but want something I can drop earlier.

Those all seem like great suggestions. To be honest I haven't played this list in a while. Cryptolith Rite seems maybe a bit redundant, because the ability wont stack with our dorks. Have you considered Druids' Repository?
August 12, 2016 10:04 a.m.
Great suggestion, that should synergize well with the doubling season. That's definitely going to replace my rites.
