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.

I have a couple suggestions. If you're looking for one big turn of storming Aeve I'd consider Parallel Lives , Primal Vigor , Horizon Stone , and Doubling Cube . You might also consider going for big mana with Incubation Druid and Castle Garenbrig . Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can go infinite with a Temur Sabertooth if she has haste, but without it it's just value to be able to bounce your original copy of your commander and recast it on a later turn and to get more mana and tons of draws as Selvala will see the steady progression of each Aeve coming in slightly bigger than the one before. You may also consider Realmwalker and Maskwood Nexus for additional tribal value.

Daedalus19876 Thank you for your feedback and the suggestions!

I definitely would consider Parallel Lives as well it’s brother Doubling Season , unfortunately they are not in my collection. :/

I like Arasta of the Endless Web and tested it in my Ghired, Conclave Exile Populate-Deck… but it turned out not that effective in our playgroup meta.

I alredy have an eye on Blight Mound in another deck but it hasn’t entered the Battlefield yet.

I love Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and have to find a spot for him. Which swap would you consider?

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is an extraordinary strong card. I haven’t considered using him in this deck so far, but you’re right, i have tons of tokens which would be awesome fodder for him. Which card would tou cut for him?

Have you considered Parallel Lives or Second Harvest to ramp up your squirrel production? It stacks with your commander's effect. I'm also a fan of Arasta of the Endless Web and Blight Mound and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder as token producers which allow you to make squirrels too. Have you considered Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as a sac outlet for all of your ridiculous tokens? He's spectacular in that role...

NeoLegacy Yup! Doubling Season and Parallel Lives will both trigger and you choose which will go on the stack first.

Koplarski, would both Doubling Season and Parallel Lives stack with one another? I've taken a few of your cards into my deck.

Toski is a blast to play! Some cards that I have in my personal Toski deck that work really well are Champion of Lambholt , Ohran Frostfang , and Cultivator of Blades .

Additionally, Toski makes a great creature to mutate! I run all of the mono-green mutate creatures:

Auspicious Starrix


Glowstone Recluse

Migratory Greathorn

Sawtusk Demolisher

With the amount of tokens you're making it might be worth looking at Doubling Season and Parallel Lives or other token doublers.

For lands, a Maze of Ith and Rogue's Passage can be very useful. If you add Maze of Ith, consider getting an Argothian Elder as well, since during combat you can create infinite Squirrel tokens using Squirrel Nest on a land and then the Elder to untap both the Maze and the Squirrel Nest land.

I love this! So glad to see Reef Worm and Arasta of the Endless Web getting some love. You've covered your bases pretty well for token generators, but if you have the extra cash Doubling Season or Parallel Lives would be a great addition. I don't normally suggest expensive cards, but they have major utility in this deck.

Some other things you might consider are Repudiate / Replicate for a quick hit (in place of Spitting Image maybe?), or Double Major to double-down on a single cast while it's on the stack. Honestly, Mystic Reflection would be great. It can turn each of the tokens coming in on a turn into copies of a big dude instead of 1/1s for example. Or another token generator already out and therefore get multiple triggers later.

Whatever you choose, this deck looks like fun. Good job!

Cool deck! A few things I think you could do to make it a little stronger would be reducing the number of lands and adding a few other cards. I would recommend a few ways to get some of your stronger creatures like Hullbreacher and Biomancer's Familiar with cards like Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard . Another card I'd recommend adding is Doubling Season , Parallel Lives , or Anointed Procession , because paired with Kenrith, the Returned King , Hullbreacher , and a cost reducer can get infinite treasures as a unique combo win. Doubling Season is particularly good with the added +1+1 counter synergy.
