Hornet Nest

Creature — Insect

Defender (This creature can't attack.)

Whenever Hornet Nest is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch onto the battlefield. (Any amount of damage a creature with deathtouch deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

Saber Ants . That and Hornet Nest work well with cards like Simulacrum , Give No Ground and Valor Made Real . They give you a huge creature advantage after a Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction .

Tattered Nest

Creature - Pest


Whenever Tattered Nest is dealt damage, create that many 0/1 black Pest creature tokens.

Pests you control get +1/+1


Inspired by Hornet Nest , which is a card I love but can't find a decent home for where it truly shines. One day I'll be able to run a playset in Modern and people will roll their eyes and sigh... one day :'3

Take a local bar in your area and turn it into a legendary land, lololol

Unfortunately the Hornet Nest trick only works with Ulvenwald Tracker , as Ayula doesn't let you target a creature you control with the fight mechanic. Still really cool though.

11/10 for this deck name. I love it.

Wow absolutely love the flavor of Hornet Nest , that is super clever.

To go with the flavor you could proxy a Drop of Honey (700 bucks is not on budget I know)... since you are in voltron it wouldn't be horrible since you'll likely have one of the biggest creatures at all times. Its a weird card... but flavor is flavor right?

Rishkar's Expertise is my favorite green card draw spell and I would try and find a home for it here, maybe instead of soul's majesty? The one mana difference shouldn't matter too much in mono green.

Been awhile! I like the new direction, a little more thriving off death & hard-to-target stuff. Here is where The Brown Spider has evolved to. Ever think about Swarmyard for a little sub-theme with Hornet Queen + Hornet Nest ? & other insects/spider commander? Also, if you like putting a clock on game-delays, i've found Captive Audience to be fun.

For marath, i love Hornet Nest ping it once a turn, or with a cathars out, you better have enough dice. ><, just to ping it and have a 1/1 flying deathtouch blocker is amusing.
