Description

This is a fairly standard token generating deck. The commander is the only card I've purchased. Because I'm trying to get everything else through trades and sealed product, progress is rather slow. Still, I'm happy with the results so far.

Rhys the Redeemed tends to be better than Trostani, Selesnya's Voice since it will very frequently net more tokens for the same cost. Going wide helps to set up a strong presence early, and going tall can put the nails in the coffin. I tried to split my generators between both strategies, but I tend to prefer doubling big flashy tokens. Enchantments like Primal Vigor and Parallel Lives create even more ridiculous value when duplicating tokens, and Anointed Procession and Doubling Season are on the wish list. Mirrorpool and Soul Separator are fun ways to turn other creatures into tokens. Some of my favorite targets are utility creatures like Brutalizer Exarch and Terastodon, my strongest answers to artifacts and enchantments until I acquire an Aura Shards and Austere Command or when Nullmage Shepherd has fuel. My win conditions are a collection of overrun effects including Garruk Wildspeaker, Craterhoof Behemoth, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, and Thunderfoot Baloth, although Elder of Laurels can also create lethal damage. I tried to only include board clears that would leave me with some advantage. Hour of Reckoning and Phyrexian Rebirth leave me tokens while Ezuri's Predation frequently will, especially with Emmara Tandris on board. Fresh Meat and Gideon's Phalanx are also defense against opposing wipes, something the deck is quite vulnerable to. Mentor of the Meek and Skullclamp are card draw engines while Shamanic Revelation is great for restocking. Suture Priest, Anointer Priest, and Soul's Attendant are additional ways to stave off death against aggressive opposition. Primal Command is most often used to find lethal threats like Angel of Sanctions, Avenger of Zendikar, and Pathbreaker Ibex.
