Essence Warden Discussion

Nickosis on Marath, the Poisonous

Or also, something that doubles counters or something like Hardened Scales because then you can remove a counter, to out 2 on Marath. It's a lot of annoying shenanigans, but it does work, even something like Essence Warden and Archangel of Thune for when you make a dude you gain a life and put a counter back on Marath. Like I said, lots of silly interactions.

With that amount of tokens and creatures I would definietly go with Essence Warden . Maybe Beastmaster Ascension for ultimate ending run?

The new card, Trudge Garden is spicy.

-https://www.mtggoldfish.com/price/Commander+2021/Trudge+Garden#paper

What's the combo?

Have Mana Echoes in play and a Beast or Fungus in play. You also want an ETB life trigger such as Soul Warden , Essence Warden , Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or Angelic Chorus . Anything akin to these will do.

Bingo bango bongo infinite 4/4s and infinite life with infinite . If you also have something such as Elemental Bond or any of the other ETB draw, you can draw your entire library.

Slap down a Chromatic Orrery , Prismite or Stonework Packbeast and cast everything you've got that turn and win the game.

Combo Name: Mana Garden

Given how explosive this is and how you can gain multiple types of infinite all at the same time, may I just outright request a new hub be added called Mana Garden? ;)

TheoryCrafter on Ghired: All Tokens Welcome!

1 month ago

Have you considered Any combination of Emrakul's Evangel , Nomads' Assembly , Sylvan Offering ? Emrakul's Evangel pretty much makes all your base 1/1 creature tokens into base 3/2 tokens--boosting the usablily of Elemental Bond. Nomads' Assembly doubles the number of creatures you control for two turns. Sylvan Offering gives you one big creature and a bunch of little ones.

Also, with so many tokens getting onto the battlefield you may want to consider finding spots for Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden . The life gain from the three alone will keep you alive as you build your army.

If you're interested in an alternate win card, the enchantment Epic Struggle would definitely be up your alley--especially since it can get around prison decks. Speaking of enchantments, Leyline of the Meek will boost your creature tokens and Cindervines will deal damage to your opponents until you need to destroy someone's artifact or enchantment.

Speaking of damage, Zhur-Taa Druid deals damage to an opponent each time you tap it for mana.

Extra graveyard interaction cards you can use are Scavenging Ooze for controllable graveyard hate and Repopulate to reuse all your non-token creatures.

Field of the Dead should be an add in due to all the different named lands you have in your deck. Other lands that can create creature tokens for you without sacrificing the lands include, but are not limited to, Khalni Garden and Dwarven Mine . If you don't mind some sacrifice the Dark Depths / Thespian's Stage combo is the best.

Happy Hunting!
