Trostani's Cloning Process *Primer*

Commander / EDH* GW (Selesnya) Lifegain Tokens



Trostani, Selesnya's Voice will clone your creatures!

1. Bramble Sovereign and Mirrorpool Guaranteed copiers

  1. Helm of the Host, Soul Foundry and Minion Reflector have to jump a few hoops but reliable to get started

  2. Seance, Mimic Vat and Blade of Selves but gotta be quick with these doozies we lose them EOT

With populate it loses the "sac at EOT" so things like Second Harvest, Populate Spells we can mass produce our cloning.

  1. Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession can also double up our Cloners to achieve mass production!

  2. Druid's Deliverance, Rootborn Defenses and Sundering Growth can "combat trick" our things like Blade of Selves that have to be sac'd at certain times into becoming permanent beings.

ETB's are our friends here. I would run Panharmonicon but it seems a tad to generic for this.

  1. Acidic Slime: Aura Shards on a body? why not?

  2. Armada Wurm Can get nasty here. Clone the wurm. get 2 triggers plus Double that then Populate the wurm again.

  3. Avenger of Zendikar: See above

  4. Crested Sunmare: Pony with HoH is actually what inspired me to build this deck. Was in a game and accidentally stumbled onto this constant cloning machine with Trostani populating the ponies which made more ponies so decided to make this deck.

  5. Hornet Queen: Any kind of token producer on a body that can get cloned is heavy hitting here. Especially poison jabs like this

  6. Nacatl War-Pride: is pretty much a Giant Adephage except you get more bang out of it. Sure you have to exile the tokens at the EoT but imagine Second Harvest while attacking the other token deck ;)

  7. Rampaging Baloths: while cloning you can stumble into so many 4/4's....

  8. Giant Adephage you literally get another one just to hit someone with combat damage.... Insta clone

9.Wurmcoil Engine: Last be definintly not least the OG token guy. Even if you Blade of Selves or Mimic Vat this guy you get his offspring that you can populate on. One of the better dudes for this deck.

If there's a lot of Board Wipes going on what else is there?

Aetherflux Reservoir is the answer. With all of our life gain from our CMNDR and her daughters Essence Warden, Soul's Attendant and Suture Priest we have no issues getting up to 151 life to knock everyone out.

We run one and only one combo and that being: Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder

Reason for this is Archangel of Thune is just good on it's own (DUH) but if things aren't going my way we can always Infinite life into Aetherflux Reservoir for a cheap win.

Trostani can go many different ways and I decided to go a different way into larger tokens to make it feel more worth her for a 1/1 soldier.

Once you get this engine generating your clones only board wipes can stop you.

If you like this idea please +1
