Commander / EDH GW (Selesnya)

Welcome friends to my first deck building experience! I saw Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves in this last set and fell in love with the idea of lots and lots of wolf friends. As you can guess, this deck tries its best to take Tolsimir's ETB fight mechanic to keep opponents boards clear and keeps yours thriving. We will be leveraging some buffs from creatures, enchantments, etc to boost the fight damage of our incoming wolf friends, as well as token doublers to give us even more wolf friends!

Some interesting things to note:

Our token doublers will work on things you might not immediately expect like Tamiyo's Journal and Smothering Tithe .

The wolf token created on Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves ETB is legendary, and as such, if a doubler is on the battlefield, both tokens will ETB, legend rule will destroy one, you will gain 6 life, but you will only have 1 fight trigger, as the other is an invalid target.

The fight trigger for Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves says may so we can still have our small or important creatures ( Mirror Entity , Metallic Mimic , Chameleon Colossus , etc) come into the battlefield without any worry about them dying to bigger creatures.

This deck is not reinventing the wheel, as I am sure many people have built something similar, however, I would love to hear your feedback as this deck is in early construction and it is my first attempt at an EDH deck.

Finale of Devastation with 12 mana

Chameleon Colossus + lots of mana (4 mana -> 8/8, 8 mana -> 16/16, 12 mana -> 32/32, 16 mana -> 64/64) + trample ( Howlpack Resurgence ) = ggwp

Mirror Entity + some mana + lots of creatures = overrunning opponents

Wolfbriar Elemental (essentially an x spell) + Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves = board wipe

Vigor + Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves + almost any wolf/wolf token gen = lots of big wolves

Overwhelming Stampede + lots of wolf tokens on board = overrunning opponents

Any token doubler + Ashnod's Altar + Earthcraft / Cryptolith Rite and Concordant Crossroads + Wren's Run Packmaster = infinite wolf tokens

Aetherflux Reservoir + life gained from Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves = KO on one opponent

Wren's Run Packmaster will most likely champion Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves , sending her to the command zone to be re-cast, but championing Reclamation Sage would be possible for a second ETB trigger

Concordant Crossroads , while being a double-edge sword, can give you a lot more bang for your buck from cards like Primal Forcemage and Cryptolith Rite
