Parallel Lives


If an effect would create one or more tokens under your control, it creates twice that many tokens instead.

Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor, Doubling Season, and/or Second Harvest would all do well in a token strategy.

Druid's Deliverance is a great Fog effect for token decks since it has populate and can buy you a turn against large boards.

Hope you found this helpful. +1

Myrkul, Lord of Bones (Abzan God) is very interesting. So it would seem that when that when a nontoken creature you control dies, you may exile it and create a token copy of it (Nice!) except it is an enchantment and loses all other types?

So... it no longer is a creature? Hmm. There are definitely ways to utterly abuse this.

Some cards who require combat in order to be effective would fail, while others would become exceedingly powerful. For example, Archfiend of Depravity is now significantly harder to remove from the battlefield once it is an enchantment and not a creature.

Similarly, because these exiled creatures ETB as token enchantments, Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives as well as the rest of them all kick off. Something such as the stapled budget Avenger of Zendikar would ETB as an enchantment token, and you could get two, four or even eight of them. Then, when a land ETB, your enormous army of plants get a +1/+1 counter for EACH Avenger in play.

How about more token doublers, like Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, and Primal Vigor? If you get one of those out with Adrix and Nev, Twincasters, you get x4 tokens. If you somehow get all three out with A&N, it's x16 tokens. Not sure what to cut for them, though; it might be just a matter of taste (and money. Those things ain't cheap).

For other suggestions, Khalni Garden can come in for a Forest, and Sprout Swarm can put spare creatures to good use in creating more tokens. Maybe cut Flip the Switch for that one?

The absurd value from a density of fetch lands is omg, lol.

3 colors, I believe you can use 9 of the 10 fetch lands. Only one you don't have access to is the Izzet one.

Then Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse, as well as Blighted Woodland and the Panoramas such as Jund Panorama.

Grab shock lands and Vilis, Broker of Blood so you get immense card draw. You can use K'rrik to pay less for Vilis so he ETB faster.

Then you could offer light Zombie tribal support to make RFL a bit deadlier. You have Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession as well as the others.

Landfall, Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths

Harsh Sustenance would be amazing in this deck.

Intangible Virtue as a secondary vigilance source and makes them all 2/2s. Emmara Tandris as a Secret Commander. Same with Rhys the Redeemed

Lots of fun Timmy builds to explore here. I may do it this weekend <3

Oh that's nice!

Worst case scenario is that Release the Dogs gives you four 1/1 vanilla dogs for four mana respectively which isn't amazing but works well enough. More importantely however, if you have out something like a token doubler or ETB effects such as Parallel Lives, Cathars' Crusade or Impact Tremors I feel like it does a lot! Moreover it's a fast way to repopulare your board if needed ^-^

plakjekaas, the truth is, I really want Naya Tokens to be a solid thing in EDH. I know it already is with several builds, but the issue is that we have enchantments such as Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession, but nothing for red. Yes, I use Flameshadow Conjuring quite a lot, and this was heavily drawn from that inspiration. But, I wanted something stronger, more akin to the other two. With flavorful and mechanical red support, of course. The added was to help justify the wider effect, as yes I do recognize how powerful it is.

I want to eventually find a more laid back group who allows non-Legendary Commanders, such as Godsire. :) I think custom cards might be a bit far and I can't see any group allowing it - lest perhaps a balanced custom Commander, but definitely nothing within the +99.

For example, Embodiment of Insight can turn your Vesuva into a 3/3 until end of turn. For your play this turn, Rite of Replication on Vesuva. Those tokens ETB as copies of any land you want, but those copies aren't creatures.

From here, any doubling or population effect works. A Parallel Lives on field will net you 10x Vesuva tokens, for example.

These really sort of push you into Simic or Bant, as they are the easiest colors to work with for this trick, but it is entirely possible with red. I don't think black can, though.

There's also Moritte of the Frost, in Simic, if you just need a 1-of land.
