Parallel Lives

Parallel Lives


If an effect would put one or more tokens onto the battlefield under your control, it puts twice that many tokens onto the battlefield instead.

Token doublers like Parallel Lives help too but are on the pricy side

I do not wish to overwhelm this thread, but I just checked the prices for Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession and discovered that they are very expensive, so I hope that they are reprinted in this set (especially since I am considering make an EDH deck with Ghired, Conclave Exile as the general).

hey DemMeowsephs!

Thanks for dropping by! sorry have been preoccupied. Always good to see fellow Zaxara players! Here are my thoughts on some of the cards:

Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor: I love these cards! But I think they fit better on big hydra beatdown type decks. (which are fun in their own!) Because my deck is more so focused on 1 card to finish someone off, the tokens and counters are more of a bonus. Doubling Season is the only one I made an exception for. But definitely these cards could fit in Zaxara.

Vorel of the Hull Clade and The Ozolith are kinda the same explanation. In creature based Zaxara, these should be included.

I like the ramp cards you listed. Three Visits I wanted to include but didn't have it. I am seriously considering Arcane Signet and Sylvan Caryatid

Drawing cards has always been a problem for this deck. Perhaps I will consider Dark Confidant and Sylvan Library.

Thanks for the tips!

Champion of Lambholt goes great here, making your creatures pretty much unblockable. I would also consider adding Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor, and Anointed Procession to the deck as backups if your doubling season gets removed, because it will be targeted frequently in a more competitive deck. I would also throw in a few tutors such as Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, and Eladamri's Call to help find your pieces quicker. I have a Rhys deck I run and personally consider to lean towards the competitive side if you want to check it out for any other ideas. 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens) I personally love all of the X costing token generator cards to help speed up and fill up the board really quickly.

Here are some cards you might like: Beast Whisperer, Broodhatch Nantuko, Colossal Majesty, Deep Forest Hermit, Druid's Deliverance, Evolution Sage, Explore, Full Flowering, Gaea's Blessing, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Generous Stray, Giant Adephage, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid (pushing the budget, I know. Just thought I'd throw it out there),Hunter's Insight, Paragon of Eternal Wilds, Rampaging Baloths, Runic Armasaur, Sandwurm Convergence, Second Harvest, Selesnya Eulogist, Seton, Krosan Protector, Shapers' Sanctuary, Snake Umbra, Temur Sabertooth, Verdant Rebirth, Voice of Many.

Figured I'd give you a lot of different choices and you can pick through them for the ones you like.

What I would recommend you do with this deck is turn its focus into a cat and druid tribal deck that incorporates a lot of card draw and token generators along with populate effects. I feel it would bring a lot more synergy to your deck without increasing the price.

IF you ever wanted to break budget a little bit for this deck, I'd suggest maintaining the whole cat/druid/token themes and incorporating a little more of an enchantment focus with cards like Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Yavimaya Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms, and Setessan Champion. This would both boost your druid count a bit and your card draw significantly. These combined with enchantments like Beastmaster Ascension, Parallel Lives, Season of Growth and auras such as Keen Sense, and Sixth Sense, would net you a lot of value and power.

You might also consider cutting some of your lands like Blighted Woodland, Desert of the Indomitable, Slippery Karst, and maybe 1 or 2 forests, and adding in more ramp cards. I'd suggest maybe a Kodama's Reach and some artifact ramp like a Mind Stone, but I think you should focus most of your ramp on land auras like Wild Growth, Fertile Ground, Wolfwillow Haven, and Overgrowth. They'd be really nice if you ever decided to go down the Enchantress route.

I knooow this is long I'm sorry but I just see a lot of cool fun and potential in this deck of yours. :^) I tried to keep my recommendations budget but a few pricier choices might've slipped through. I hope this helps!

Animal Sanctuary Would be very good. Also, I recommend mainboarding Titanic Ultimatum, Immolating Souleater, Regal Leosaur, Temur Sabertooth, and some creatures with changeling. I would take out Ainok Bond-Kin, Encampment Keeper, and Two-Headed Cerberus, if I were you. I also recommend Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, and Prowling Serpopard. This should also give you some ideas:

Hey y'all! I agree and disagree with you : ) .

Ancient Greenwarden

I'm in love with this card. We can fetch Crucible of Worlds and Doubling Season/Parallel Lives effects in one creature card?! This card is gas. It literally gives Omnath token fuel to burn. Plus, it gives us redundancy effects.

Moraug, Fury of Akoum

Spicy card. Moraug is fun when have enough bodies (without summoning sickness) and landfall triggers to abuse Maraug's extra combat steps. This can be another wincon but honestly I've found Omnath's lightning/token effects and Craterhoof Behemoth's ETB efficient enough to win most games. I prefer to add redundancy effects like Terror of the Peaks and Ancient Greenwarden instead. If you want to spice up the deck by adding different wincons like Moraug or Triumph of the Hordes, by all means try it out.

Valakut Exploration & Nahiri's Lithoforming

I like Valakut card more than Nahiri's Lithoforming. Lands are a finite resource in the deck. Nahiri's Litho's draw effect is cool but its effect to destroy and replace lands seems more like a finisher move for me in order pump up Omnath's token production to trigger ETB burn effects or Omnath's lightning effect via sac outlet. Then again, Valakut is perceptible to removal so you'll lose your casting ability of exiled cards. Tough cookie.

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild

I'm not too thrilled with the abilities. It is just a beater. I see little benefit from making my nontoken creatures into Forests. I'm careful which creatures I cast to the field. My EDH Group uses a lot of removal so I hardly have too many nontoken creatures on the field unless I absolutely need their abilities. I doubt I'll see too many landfall triggers caused by my creatures ETBing as Forests.

I would push back against the 'devil's advocate' comment as Ancient Greenwarden's body is really useful being a 5/7 with Reach. We have little to no way of dealing with flyers. It isn't much but it helps. The crucible effect is huge but we also in essence getting a 3rd Doubling Season effect most of the time. I know technically it isn't but it would act the same way. 6CMC for 5/7 Reach, Crucible of Worlds and Parallel Lives/Doubling Season seem like a good deal. Lotus Cobra becomes a powerhouse too with this in play.
