Ant Queen

Creature — Insect

: Put a 1/1 green Insect creature token onto the battlefield.

TypicalTimmy on Card creation challenge

1 month ago

Sakaizokan, Ravenous Colony

Legendary Creature - Insect Wall

Defender

When Sakaizokan enters the battlefield, create X 1/1 red insect creature tokens named Fire Ant. They have ": This creature deals 1 damage to any target."

Whenever you are attacked, Sakaizokan deals X damage divided as you choose among attacking creatures equal to the number of insects you control.

6/6


Dragonlair Spider, Hornet Queen, Hornet Nest, Ant Queen, Beacon of Creation, Carrion, Grist, the Hunger Tide, Amzu, Swarm's Hunger, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Living Hive, Broodhatch Nantuko, Nest of Scarabs, Xira, the Golden Sting

I mean are you kidding me? And this isn't even all of them, and not even all of the best ones in these colors. Not to mention all of the all of the black punishment effects, all of the red ETB damage effects or all of the green propagation effects.


Your challenge is to make another interesting Commander, and showcase several cards that would be in their deck starting precon deck.

Remember this is a precon deck, so cards should largely be between $1 and $3 each, with maybe two or three $10 max cards.

And if you look, yes I did adhere to my own rule with Beacon of Creation, Grist, the Hunger Tide and Amzu, Swarm's Hunger being the expensive ones in the list.

Not sure if you're looking for any new ideas, but since I thought of a few I thought I'd mention, in case you can find them! Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and One with the Kami would be very good in here, and are very good together. If you also have something like Pawn of Ulamog or Sifter of Skulls you can turn any sacrificed non-token creature into a colourless mana (as well as a token creature). Pitiless Plunderer and Chatterfang, Squirrel General are both very good together and very good with your Commander. Jade Mage can make Saprolings for only 2G, and Ant Queen can make a 1/1 insect for only 1G. Skullclamp is really good value if you have a lot of 1 toughness tokens, paying 1 and killing your token to draw 2 feels great. Welcoming Vampire is a nifty option if you can make a token on each opponent's turn, as is Bennie Bracks, Zoologist. Soltari Champion is a neat anthem that is really hard to block, and Soltari Visionary is a handy way to cripple any Enchantment heavy decks, because very few decks can block Shadow creatures. With your counter theme you might use Incubation Druid, it's great value if you can cheaply get a counter on it. Ordeal of Nylea is good ramp if you can cheat some counters to speed it up.

For global haste you can use Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, and Urabrask the Hidden who will also conveniently turn off other people's haste. Anger and Barbarian Class also give haste after more effort.

Ant Queen, Artifact Mutation, Battle Hymn, Circle of Dreams Druid, Dragon Broodmother, Pest Infestation, Scute Swarm, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Termagant Swarm are all useful if you can give haste to all of them.

Birds of Paradise is just the best mana dork.

You have green, so you might as well use the standard ramp package with Cultivate , Kodama's Reach, Explore , Farseek, , Rampant Growth, Three Visits and Nature's Lore. Probably ignore most mana rocks, because people are going to want to vandalblast you just because of the treasures.

Relentless Assault, Scourge of the Throne, Combat Celebrant, Hexplate Wallbreaker, World at War grant extra combats, with Hellkite Charger and Aggravated Assault potentially going infinite.

Vandalblast goes in every red deck. Even though youll have a ton of treasures i'd still run Brotherhood's End too

For draw spells consider Scroll Rack, Garruk's Uprising, Elemental Bond, Soul's Majesty, Furious Rise, Rishkar's Expertise, Beast Whisperer, Shamanic Revelation, Disciple of Bolas, Pact of the Serpent, Painful Truths, Harmonize, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Damnable Pact, Commune with Lava, Lifeblood Hydra, or maybe Necropotence although the color restricion on necro is tough, treasures should take care of it.

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer , The Reaver Cleaver , Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge , Ancient Copper Dragon , Old Gnawbone Ziatora, the Incinerator for more treasure makers. Pyrohemia and Pestilence could be fun with the extra mana. Awaken the Woods is an amazing x spell too, but wont appreciate the two aforementioned cards.

If you're using magda the deck will benefit from dragons and expensive artifacts. throw in Imperial Recruiter and Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Demonic Tutor all go in your colors. so you can get her more consistently. Darksteel Forge and Gate to Phyrexia can be tutored into play with her for five treasure.

If you use dragons, you could add Dragonstorm, but you should carefully consider how many cheap spells you expect to be able to cast if you arent building specifically towards this card. Chatterstorm, Empty the Warrens, Yawgmoth's Will, Jeska's Will, Mana Geyser, and Manamorphose, Past in Flames are all good on their own and would add synergy.

If it ends up dragon tribal, cards like Crippling Fear , Kindred Dominance, Crux of Fate

Swashbuckler Extraordinaire is a very good payoff for using treasures if you dont use certain other nightmarish dragons like Atarka, World Render, Blast-Furnace Hellkite, Terror of Mount Velus, Thrakkus the Butcher

Coward_Token on Phyrexia: All Will Be One …

Tyvar's flavor being about beatdown while his passive and +1 leading themselves to tap abilities is kinda off

Kinda annoyed if Nissa dies, if only because Vivian and mono-green Garuk are mechanically indistinguishable.

Rhuk: For Mirrodin!-tribal I guess.

Not a fan of the mechanical eyestalks that Serum Sovereign and Jace (and Ajani in one version) have, looks too sci-fi

Hoping against hope that Ertai, the Corrupted gets a non-Secret Lair reprint, he's neat.

IDK if they could have skipped creating Mites and just kept going with Germs

Staff of the Storyteller: I've been down on recent white draw enginge attempts, but this is pretty good if you got a deck where the token is relevant so you're not just paying 2+1 mana to draw your first car

Mesmerizing Dose: Kinda misleading art?

Vanish into Eternity: I hope they're not killing of too many cool planes.

Capricious Hellraiser: Not bad EDH mono-red Dragon tribal if you include some rummaging.

Me as usual complaining that things aren't more pushed: Kinzu seems overall worse than Hofri Ghostforge, even if her tokens are basically 4/1s in EDH. I hope there's some cool "corrupted" cards for her to take advantage of.

Annoyed by Mite Overseer because AFAIK white still doesn't have straightforward weenie makers that are as efficient as green's Jade Mage & Ant Queen

Kinda find Atraxa disapointing, her ETB would have been neat as just a stand-alone sorcery

I wish Staff of Compleation cost 1 less life on all of its tap abilities, not as easily abuseable as Staff of Domination anyway.

Roar of Resistance's triggered ability could just cost to make politicking smoother

Clever Concealment: Booo, when are we getting a straightforward Heroic Intervention color shift? (Don't talk to me about Grand Crescendo or And They Shall Know No Fear, they are not the same.)

Otharri: Yeah this is much more appropritate for the color combination than Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, but unlike the rest of the original experience commanders there's still not a lot of ways to get multiple counters quickly

Necrogen Rotpriest: with e.g. Goliath Hatchery in mind, I don't see why this couldn't just give out Toxic 1 as an anthem.

Resistance Reuinted: Kinda sad that you can basically counter the anti-board wipe part by removing the targeted creature.

Forgot to mention; for token generation consider Dragonlair Spider, Ant Queen, or Terastodon for another creature generator for both sides.

Honey_Mustard on Land and Insect Deck

WhiteEagle_12, thank you for your advice, as you can see I have taken some of it. I removed Ant Queen as I originally leaned on it as a way to sink mana once I was generating large amounts. However I replaced bot Ant Queen and Elvish Mystic with Sakura-Tribe Scout and Spring-Leaf Avenger. This has shifted the focus of the deck slightly, however I kept both scute cards as they have such god benefit from large amounts of land. I also picked up Reclaim the Wastes and Caravan Vigil. The fact that these weren't already in my deck shows how little of the cardpool I am familiar with. I am considering adding Overrun to capitalize on my scute cards, but I feel with a large source of creatures removed this is a rather weak win condition. Overall I am very conflicted on whether or not I lean into this and trust that Overrun will allow me to win, or to find another way to use my setup to win.

Regardless of my wishy-washy feelings your advice has been deeply appreciated. :)

Consider adding Mitotic Slime, Mycoloth, Hornet Queen, and Ant Queen. In my opinion these could all be good token generators for flinging!

Also good adds. Nyx Weaver is a crazy good add since it lets me get my combo piece if I accidentally mill it, so i'll have to find a cut. I think I'll cut Stag Beetle for Ant Queen since most of the time stag beetle is around a 5/5 anyways and can't make more tokens.
