Cool deck! Thalisse is a pretty fun commander. I am sorry to continue to beat a dead horse here, but I would also suggest the inclusion of Smothering Tithe. It's objectively one of the strongest cards in Thalisse (and most white decks to be honest). I see that you are worried about your opponents paying tax, but I want to re-frame it in this way: Smothering Tithe reads as "Either tax your opponents at least 2 mana or create at least 2 tokens on each of your opponent's turns". And that is just the baseline case. Any additional card draw continues to further tax your opponents mana base or advance your board state. The card is very, very strong.

Similarly, you might consider running Ophiomancer. You have enough sac outlets to reliably make tokens each turn.

I also found instant speed token creation to be very strong in my old Thalisse build. Cards like Grand Crescendo (doubles as board wipe protection), Inkshield (a fog that produces an instant army) and Secure the Wastes were pretty good.

One fun interaction that I used to run was Noosegraf Mob + Cathars' Crusade. It's a lot of mana initially, but it's such a dirty token engine.

I hate the injection of 40K into the MTG universe, but I like what you've done with this deck :) Cathars' Crusade comes to mind for more powerful attacks (and defenses). For the token theme, Bitterblossom also seems to fit rather neatly.

Chaseace3 Thanks a lot for the comment, your suggestions and the link!

In the earlier versions of the deck, Anointed Procession was still included, along with Doubling Season and Cathars' Crusade. However, they often were too slow for the amount of hate these cards usually draw; Thus, they have been replaced.

Ah yes, Jinnie Fay, Jetmir's Second... I've been on the fence with this card for a while now. While it is undoubtedly great, it would kind of go against the deck theme - "No owners allowed!"

Shared Animosity was cut courtesy of other anthem effects; How were your experiences with it? Is it any good?

Coat of Arms proved to be a nightmare to track in paper magic and eded up in my card folder for good when I cast in a tribal pod and all chaos broke lose xD

sanddeviljack You can simplify the math by responding to the Cathars' Crusade trigger to do the next Trudge Garden activation instead of putting all the activations on the stack at the same time or waiting for everything to resolve after each activation. It is a bit of more complex sequencing to make the math easier and the powers bigger. So it is your decision on if you want a little more complicated sequencing or a little more complicated math.

I was playing my Naya enchantress deck and my board was overflowing onto the next guy's playmat. I resolved a creature spell with a Soul Sister, on board. I followed that by tapping Serra's Sanctum for 24, plus the rest of my lands, and made 68 fungus beasts with Trudge Garden and 2 token doublers. Cathars' Crusade made the math really annoying ([email protected]/72, [email protected]/68, [email protected]/64, etc. down to [email protected]/8), but since I had Hammer of Purphoros for haste, we shuffled up and played another game. Only just now calculated it out: 2720 just from the fungus beast tokens.

Also Cathars' Crusade could go hard. Also a Rhystic Study is an auto include

Something like Skanos Dragonheart gets a temporary boost that becomes a permanent boost to that Ambitious Dragonborn.

Scepter of Celebration, Sylvan Offering and other token producers would give you more creatures to take advantage of your cards that put counters on everything like Master Chef (and Loyal Guardian and Cathars' Crusade which i see in the maybe board).

I always like Hungering Hydra and Protean Hydra if you have something that pays for the X cost like Hamza (I have a Rosheen Meanderer and Animar, Soul of Elements)
