EpoH on Wort the Raidmother Tokens

Interesting to see Isochron Scepter here!

I really love Wort and really liked seeing the increasing power subtheme here

Also, i've found that most times i played i'd rather have an instant response in hand like Wild Ricochet or Reverberate rather than Dualcaster Mage, mostly because of the copying thingy. Also i would say since you already have Valakut Awakening  Flip in here, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip would fit right in, also "doubling" your chances to get a Regrowth in your hand.

i'll list a few cards i think go well with the Scepter in this deck if you don't mind, some of them might not be as budget.

Guys... Force of Will and Pact of Negation are rare... and you just have to get creative with your removal. Artifact Mutation/Aura Mutation, Attrition, Bedevil, Berserk, Bounty Agent, Decimate, Dimir Charm, Dreadbore THE LIST GOES ON

Alright, it's rhino time.

There are quite a few things I would recommend here.

First off, fourteen taplands!? Come on. Ghired deserves better than that! I'd either run more basics for the sake of your ramp or upgrade the nonbasics.

Part One - Things that cost too much to cast and/or don't do much:

  1. Helm of the Host is cute, but nine mana. Perhaps just a Nature's Lore?

  2. Ghired's Belligerence, however befitting, is quite possibly just worse than Ezuri's Predation.

  3. Hate Mirage follows suit. March of the Multitudes is lovely, though.

  4. Each deck needs graveyard hate! You cut that inutile Full Flowering and you add that Night Soil! (Imagine a joyous voice.)

Part Two - Just for any deck:

  1. So. Removal. Something beyond four would be nice. More instant speed as well. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Aura Mutation, Artifact Mutation, and Generous Gift are all bromidic and potent.

  2. Can your deck generate green and red mana? Then play Decimate. Do it. It has literally never felt dead. It murders four things at the cost of one card. It is a bloody wrath. Furthermore, if you take from everybody you are less likely to be targeted. I once hit a Dimir Aqueduct, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Arena, and Elesh Norn. Fifteen mana gone in an instant.

  3. Peering upon the curve, add more ramp. Nature's Lore, Into the North (add snow basics), Cryptolith Rite, Three Visits, Druids' Repository, Nature's Will, and any mana dork.

  4. Intrinsically, Darksteel Ingot should just be Cultivate. It is currently cheap and it replaces itself.

  5. Once Upon a Time is a card I run in any green deck. It's great all the time.

  6. Hero of Bladehold has come to murder everyone. She does her job.

  7. Purphoros has come to murder everyone. He always does his job.

  8. Given how few basics you run, Field of the Dead is a splendid inclusion. It's far better than it reads, and it reads of dint.

That's it! Farewell! CRUSH EVERYONE!

I have my own token deck here if you care to see it.

Hey McFuzzleKING thanks for the suggestions! I love Bramble Sovereign, I have never seen that card (which makes sense as Battlebond was during my big break from MTG which means I missed some great stuff) but it's a great addition to this deck. Looks powerful but has the added bonus of being a fun political piece in casual settings, which is where I plan to be playing this deck. I'll definitely be adding Bramble Sovereign once I eventually start messing with this deck a little more.

I do like Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation too, I just wish they made one x/x token instead of x 1/1 tokens as it would work better for this deck (if I'm copying tokens I would rather have fewer beefy ones than a bunch of little ones). Still, I'll definitely consider both and I appreciate you mentioning them I actually only know about Artifact Mutation (not sure how the other slipped my notice).

What I really wish was that there was something like Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer in these colors, that card would be so good in this deck. It would would made cards like Artifact Mutation, March of the Multitudes, and Aura Mutation so much better here.

Hey NiftyCheshireCat, some of my favorite token cards are those with dual purpose. Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation fit that bill and can act as good counters if you feel the need for them.

Advent of the Wurm, Gelatinous Genesis, and March of the Multitudes are other nice options. I'd also recommend taking a look at Bramble Sovereign whose copying ability could be really fun.

Nice job overall!

Oh yeah. Because you're playing both White and Green and Red and not playing many artifacts or many enchantments, I think you'd be better off playing mass artifact and enchantment hate than playing many artifacts or enchantments yourself (As well as Land Destruction, because it's an option and goes hand in hand with Artifact hate). Good examples are Broken Bond, Dust to Dust, (keep Artifact Mutation), Deconstruct, Gleeful Sabotage, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Tel-Jilad Justice, Tribute to the Wild, Ancient Grudge, By Force, Decimate, Fiery Confluence, Fissure Vent, Shattering Spree, Vandalize, Devastating Dreams, Incendiary Command, Rubble Reading, Scorched Earth, Volcanic Awakening, Volcanic Offering, Yawning Fissure. You don't have to play all of those cards, but because you're playing Tymna the Weaver, everyone will want to kill you as quickly as possible regardless, so using these cards will not damage your reputation much anyway.
