Ghave is all about going crazy with Doubling Season and constantly trying to make Saprolings or tokens. Eldrazi Monument makes your tokens indestructible, clears the skies and makes the Eldrazi Spawn from Awakening Zone able to attack and then sac-ing them for mana.

Sac outlets like Ghave and Attrition help to activate Grave Pact and Butcher of Malakir

Skullclamp gives you almost unlimited card draw as long as you have mana to equip on saprolings.

Mirari's Wake and Mana Reflection in play makes each land/mana rock you tap for product 4x of the amount.

Privileged Position and Sterling Grove provides hexproof to your entire board.

Elspeth, Knight-Errant when played with Doubling Season gives you an instant invulnerability hack. ;)

Eternal Witness + Debtors' Knell + any sac outlet like Ghave, Guru of Spores or Ashnod's Altar can provide unlimited graveyard recursion.

Mimic Vat combos are totally crazy. Take Eternal Witness or Acidic Slime imprinted as an example. This means casting Genesis Wave almost every turn once you have enough mana, like 8 to get stuff going.

I once cast Genesis Wave thrice from the vat and witness recursion and my friend just scooped for next game. ;)


Aware of Demonic and Vampiric Tutors, but out of budget at the moment. ;)

Notes to self: Will cut the following cards for the following replacements respectively -

Protean Hydra - Primordial Hydra

Not putting Genesis because I have Karador, Ghost Chieftain

Primeval Titan -Avenger of Zendikar is a nice beefy combo to have. Some more cards that go well with your theme here would be: Ant Queen , Living Hive , Master of the Wild Hunt , and Verdeloth the Ancient .

I like the build. +1 from me :)

Hi Geniusholmes13, thanks for the support.

Living Hive and Master of the Wild Hunt are two very interesting cards to see, never noticed these cards, thanks for the heads up. I will see if I can get one of them (or hopefully both?) into the deck! ;)

Rhys is a good token doubling engine but at the moment I haven't found any cards to cut for it, because the standard huge green monsters are way better against my metagame (Me and my friends all started with the commander decks, imagine going against Kaalia of the Vast) but I will definitely put it on my maybe-list. Thanks for your comment!

I'm aware of these cards, however I try to be nice in EDH decks, which is why I don't really want to play them. But since I have heard from many asking me to put them in, I may consider a sideboard for them. Thanks!

How about Death Match ?Extremely potent against big dudes. And when they want to -3/-3 your dudes, you just sec them :-)

This card makes for a nasty control version.

I have sideboarded Death Match before. Yes, it is powerful to fight against a deck like Kaalia's for example! It's a card worth considering.
