Feeding the Insatiable

Casual Tokens

ducttapedeckbox Score: 5


Description

Pump out tons of tokens and then feed Thromok the Insatiable with them.

Comments and +1's are always welcome! I also want a clever name for this deck, so please speak up if you have a suggestion! :)

Some cards that may help: Intangible Virtue (if you splash white). Parallel Lives is a must. Board wipes could help: Slagstorm , Bonfire of the Damned and Blasphemous Act could all help.

I would say you don't need a tutor (cards that help you find the cards you need in case you did not know). This deck seems fine as a green red aggro tokens. You will get Dragon Broodmother eventually, as long as you can hold out.

But, if you want, put in Worldly Tutor .

Deck looks cool, good job on it :)

August 11, 2012 5:42 p.m.

I think Blasphemous Act will be the one I put in for a board wipe - with dozens of tokens it'll cost me close to nothing.

What do you suggest I take out for Parallel Lives ? I can't decide...

August 11, 2012 5:46 p.m.

buffy says... #3

Man, it's hard to decide. The three I would say would be the best to take out would be: Beacon of Creation Rampant Growth Fresh Meat .

August 11, 2012 5:50 p.m.

How does:

-2 Beacon of Creation , -2 Rampant Growth , +2 Parallel Lives and +2 Blasphemous Act sound?

Fresh Meat was so that I can sac a ton of tokens and get them back to make another large Broodmother hatchling (man that card name sounds wrong)....

August 11, 2012 6:01 p.m.
August 11, 2012 6:04 p.m.

Anddd never mind it's $25 each

August 11, 2012 6:04 p.m.

buffy says... #7

Lol it does sound wrong :P.

Ok, that sounds good.

August 11, 2012 6:27 p.m.

I want to try to cheapen this deck up...

It'll cost me a little over $50 right now unless I can get the promo Dragon Broodmother , which would make it a little over $40. Yea, it's weird that the promo is half the normal one's price...

Do you think it can do without Birds of Paradise ? They're great in this deck, but add almost $20 to the cost. Also, what would you replace Beacon of Creation with? It's $2 each, and I know you didn't like it to start so you'll probably be happy to suggest an alternate.

August 11, 2012 10:53 p.m.

buffy says... #9

Yep, I'm happy :P. What do you think about Rhys the Redeemed ? I don't know the price, but it could be good. Honestly, I can't think of that many Red/Green token adders. The only other one that I can think of at the moment is Rise of the Hobgoblins . Sorry if I'm not more help :(.

Birds of Paradise is irreplaceable. Really nothing I can think of that would replace it, sorry.

Are you kidding? The promo version is way cooler anyway!

August 11, 2012 11:42 p.m.

wishdragon says... #10

+1 Fauna Shaman is the card to search your broodmother!

August 12, 2012 12:21 a.m.

Rhys the Redeemed is $9, thanks for the suggestion though! I could go +2 Ant Queen or +2 Chancellor of the Forge ? Those have high CMCs though and I don't think that would be too good, even though this deck doesn't have a problem producing mana...

If I can get the promo Dragon Broodmother s, then the price shouldn't be toooo bad if I decide to get the deck.

It is cooler! Which makes it weird because it's cheaper...

wishdragon - after playtesting I found that most of the time I can get Dragon Broodmother out, even if I have to stall and wait for her. This deck can also win without it. I forgot to update the desc >.< Thanks though!

August 12, 2012 10:04 a.m.

Should I replace Ant Queen with Mycoloth ?

August 12, 2012 10:07 a.m.
August 12, 2012 10:22 a.m.

buffy says... #14

Oh oh oh! Fungal Sprouting ?

Mycoloth could be very, very good. Price? :P.

Ulasht is really good too. But what would you take out?

August 12, 2012 10:53 a.m.

I like Fungal Sprouting !

Almost $3 >.<

Store doesn't have Ulasht right now (nor any Dragon Broodmother s), so I'll forget about that.

I think i'll -2 Beacon of Creation for +2 Fungal Sprouting for now

August 12, 2012 11:46 a.m.

buffy says... #16

Ok, sounds good.

$3? :(.

Doesn't have ANY Dragon Broodmother s??

August 14, 2012 12:18 p.m.

On vacation, so won't be able to get on this that much.

Not at the moment, I can always go to a FNM and trade for some... people are bound to have atleast one... They don't have the normal or promo ones...

August 17, 2012 12:01 a.m.

Where did the suggestions in the Desc. come from.....?

August 18, 2012 7:19 p.m.

buffy says... #19

Oh its some new thingy.

Where you been bro? Missed you around here! :D.

August 18, 2012 7:26 p.m.

Does it look bad if I say I dont like them? haha I'm on vaca and this is the first hotel I've had free internet at.

Did you see my idea on your prof for a new deck? Still thinking about it...

August 18, 2012 7:31 p.m.

buffy says... #21

No, doesn't look bad at all. I hate the suggestions they give xD.

Ah I see. Hope your having fun! :P.

Oh, sorry! Must have over looked it. Could be good. You could use cards such as card:Blue Sun's Zenith or Jace, Memory Adept to draw cards. If you make the deck, there are more suggestions I could give.

I'll post the decks that I would like you to look at on your profile.

August 18, 2012 7:37 p.m.

Well they will be ignored then haha

Haha thanks, lots of driving...

I actually dont think I'll make it, Niv-Mizzet is ~$12 each.....

Will try to look soon!

August 18, 2012 7:46 p.m.

buffy says... #23

Lots of driving. Story of my vacations lol.

August 18, 2012 7:50 p.m.

How does Chain Reaction sound in place of Blasphemous Act ? It was a suggestion for the Demigod of Revenge deck but it sounded like it'd be decent in this deck... not sure which to use.

August 20, 2012 2:58 a.m.

buffy says... #25

Blasphemous Act . One player has 3 creatures, the other player has 2. Blasphemous Act is 4 mana to deal 13 damage. Chain Reaction is a for sure 4 and it only deals five.

August 20, 2012 11:20 a.m.

Wow I've been reading Blasphemous Act wrong... I thought it was just 1 less for each creature I control... thanks!

August 23, 2012 12:01 a.m.

Scion of the Wild in this deck?

August 23, 2012 12:01 p.m.

TheOne4221 says... #28

August 23, 2012 5:17 p.m.

That's a possibility, but what should I take out for it? Boy that thing is ugly though...

August 23, 2012 6:22 p.m.

TheOne4221 says... #30

-1 of both card:Krenko's Command and Dragon Fodder mayhap? Cause when you cast them with Wort out, just tap down some other tokens and double the amount... Quadruple if you have Parallel Lives .

August 23, 2012 6:37 p.m.

I'll try that! I was considering -2 Fresh Meat (such a bad name for a card) but I'll see how this plays now, thanks!

August 23, 2012 7:56 p.m.

Can I turn suggestions off? It's giving me duplicates of cards and putting cards back on even after I say no...

August 23, 2012 7:59 p.m.

buffy says... #33

No, I don't think you can :(.

Wort, the Raidmother could be nice! Although, I would go -1 Llanowar Elves and -1 Fresh Meat .

Naw on Scion of the Wild not if your trying to win by Dragon Broodmother :).

August 23, 2012 11:43 p.m.

Need a new name for this deck... Going from Fresh Meat 's text: "Death's Appetizer"? Something "numbers"? I'm really bad with deck names...

September 11, 2012 2:55 p.m.

Splash black for Corpsejack Menace ?

September 16, 2012 12:38 p.m.

buffy says... #36

No on the name. This deck has nothing to do with sacrificing creatures. Just the opposite actually. I'll try to think up one :).

No on Corpsejack Menace as well. Not worth splashing an entire new color for something you don't need that much.

September 16, 2012 1:24 p.m.

Well, pumping is the first half, sacrificing is the second half with the Broodmother out, so I was sorta there :P

That's true, Doubling Season works well enough

September 16, 2012 1:37 p.m.

buffy says... #38

Yeah, I suppose you could do the name :P. It's a bit more creative then tokens :P.

September 16, 2012 1:39 p.m.

I could... but you're also right, it doesn't fully encompass the purpose of the deck... back to thinking!

September 16, 2012 4:29 p.m.

krystalheart says... #40

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think your plan of using Fresh Meat to sac a lot of tokens won't work because tokens do not go to the graveyard, but get exiled instead. Bearing this in mind, you might want to remove this card in favor of some of the suggestions our fellow players kindly made.

September 19, 2012 11:33 a.m.

I believe that when tokens die, they are considered "put into the graveyard", but are removed from the game once that happens. I will post this in the Rules section and see what is said.

On a different note, how does Thromok the Insatiable sound as an addition? With this deck, he's easily 100/100+

September 20, 2012 2:52 p.m.

buffy says... #42

Thromok would be awesome. Do it.

September 20, 2012 3:09 p.m.

Went +2 Thromok and +2 Unnatural Predation for -2 Llanowar Elves and -2 Rampant Growth ... was that cutting too much mana ramp? Should I cut Wort or something else instead?

September 20, 2012 4:29 p.m.

markkster says... #44

why not run Beast Within ? it can act as removal or token generation depending on what you need at that moment

September 21, 2012 5:42 p.m.

I'll playtest the deck with it and see how I like it!

Thanks :)

September 21, 2012 6:38 p.m.

Two things:

  1. What would I take out for Beast Within and
  2. Epic Struggle might be something I'd want to add... comments? :)
September 23, 2012 11:27 a.m.

CalciferDK says... #47

Hmm difficult decision how many Beast Within would you want to run?

If you are running 2 I would take out 1 Doubling Season and 1 Dragon Broodmother the high manacost makes it undesirable to end up with 2 early on..

just my 2 cents :)

September 27, 2012 1:53 p.m.

I agree with the -1's. I also think I want to shift to using Thromok the Insatiable as the win con instead of Dragon Broodmother - I easily got him to 3042/3042... If that doesn't win with trample, I don't know what will.

I was thinking of 2-3 Beast Within s

September 27, 2012 2:03 p.m.

CalciferDK says... #49

Sounds legit :)

Then I would up the hellions to a 4'of. reduce the broodmothers to a 1'of, the seasons to 3'of and add the 3 Beast Within .

btw. the deck looks fun to play :) 1+

September 27, 2012 2:13 p.m.

You should hear people's reactions (online though) when Thromok is over 1000p/t :P Thanks! :)

September 27, 2012 2:17 p.m.

Hey, CalciferDK, if you can think of a different name for this deck, please suggest it. "Tokens..." is pretty boring...

September 27, 2012 5:40 p.m.

CalciferDK says... #52

Seeing as you are feeding your bigger critters here are some suggestions:

if you are keeping the hellion as a win condition: "Feeding the Isatiable"

or if you are keeping the broodmother: "(Dragon)Mother's Feast" or maybe "A Mothers Love" seeing as the broodmothers gives love to their offspring and the wortmothers gives "love" to their offspring :)

A biblical approach could be "the last supper"

Others: "Feeding Frenzy,""Tokens for supper," "Dinner's served," "A Balanced Diet"

Those were the ones that came to mind.

September 28, 2012 2:40 a.m.

I like the first one actually! Thanks

September 28, 2012 2:42 p.m.

obitus says... #54

I am only +1 your deck because you own three Doubling Season and I only own 2.....I now also hate you so much.

January 12, 2013 5:41 p.m.

Well.. Heh... I never assembled this deck. You own two more Doubling Season s than me ;) Thanks for the +1 though! :P

January 12, 2013 6 p.m.

obitus says... #56

Hahahahaha, that is actually funny to me...now I feel bad. My Vietnamese friend used to say that line to me when ever I did something remotely annoying in magic, so I carried on the tradition sort of.

You should make the deck, just use Parallel Lives instead until you get your hand of doubling season....take that back. I just saw the price of your deck, its really up there.

January 12, 2013 7:06 p.m.

Dropping Doubling Season and Bonfire of the Damned would make it ok, but I get bored of my decks rather quickly, so I don't usually assemble them :P

January 12, 2013 7:25 p.m.

TheMagicPeo says... #58

April 5, 2013 9 p.m.

Wow I had totally forgotten about this deck... How'd you find it?

Both are valid suggestions, but to be honest, I don't remember where I was in playtesting this deck and what could be removed...

April 6, 2013 12:03 a.m.

TheMagicPeo says... #60

I was just roaming around looking at different decks and I stumbled across this one, so I put in my idea for it.

April 6, 2013 9:16 a.m.

Sounds good, thank you for commenting! If I start working on this deck again I'll be sure to test those two cards out.
