Parallel Lives

Enchantment

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.

Rekram on Better bring bugspray for this one

Sorin_Markov_1947 thanks for the suggestions! I just realised that Nature's Lore isnt even modern legal :P yea Kodama's Reach is a nice ramp and I also swapped Search for Tomorrow for Utopia Sprawl as its faster. As for Doubling Season I think Parallel Lives is better due to lower mana cost and it does what it needs to do :)

Hellizha on Playing with death

Salut le gros!

Tel que promis, voici ma review:

1st LES LANDS
Selon mon point de vue, je trouve que tu as trop de lands tapped dans la liste, perso je coupe :

Nul besoin de t"expliquer que le plus important c"est le mana base, avoir des lands qui te donne tes 3 couleurs est selon moi, beaucoup plus important que d"avoir une land tel que Ancient Tomb , aussi tu aura besoin de utility lands pour ta synergy. Voila pourquoi je te suggere :

2nd, MANA
- Avoir 3 couleurs demande une attention supplémentaire a tes mana rocks et ton ramps, Chromatic Lantern et Solemn Simulacrum semblent important ici. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach

3rd, COMBO/WINCON
Je vois 2 solutions ici qui sont facilement exploitable :

  • Shadowborn Apostle
    C"est une creature qui coute pas grand chose, facile a ramener du grave et qui combo avec plusieurs demons different et aussitot que nimporte quel creature meurt ton commander trigger pour un max de token.

  • Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
    Aussi cte dude la! Imagine sa double TOUT tes death trigger a cause du undying, double aussi tout les tokens, que tu pourrai aussi vouloir doubler encore plus avec des cartes comme Parallel Lives , Doubling Season et cie.

SACTOOL
- Autre que les Altars Goblin Bombardment , Sidisi, Undead Vizier , God-Eternal Bontu .

Doubling Season instead of Parallel Lives ? Or do you actually care about how much the cards cost like I do? Also, you need better land fetches. I don't have the time to give you suggestions right now, but tomorrow I'll come back.

Dragon87878 on Ghave That Bitch an Infinite Combo [Primer]

Love the deck list. I have my own ghave deck and you gave me a few ideas.

I run a few cards though that seem like excellent inclusions to your deck. Primal Vigor and to a lesser extent Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives run well with ghave. Also, Crystalline Crawler and Workhorse can fetch you infinite mana fairly easy. I know some of these have already been suggested, but is there any reason you don't run them?

Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon synergy. I love it. Great Commander with enchantments and spells such as Parallel Lives , Doubling Season , Second Harvest and Parallel Evolution .

I play a vehicles deck as well but mine has a stronger emphasis on bonuses from crewing. Creatures like Hateflayer and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed might be worthy of your consideration. Also Aethershield Artificer , Veteran Motorist , and Weldfast Engineer all give a vehicle or two a little boost. Sai, Master Thopterist , Pia Nalaar , Efficient Construction , and Thopter Spy Network are all decent servo/thopter creators; and Master Trinketeer pumps all those creations for better crewing! Then add in Anointed Procession , Parallel Lives and/or ! Doubling Season ! for even more tokens. Start Your Engines and Aerial Modification are good inclusions as well. Some cards that we both need to put in our decks are Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Aeronaut Admiral and Built to Smash . Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Breya, Etherium Shaper would be great in your deck! Mirrorworks ? Mirage Mirror ?

Atuva on Commander / EDH Starter Deck (The Essentials)

No Bojuka Bog , Exotic Orchard , Commander's Sphere , Field of Ruin , or any of the Talismans. Yet, I see Path to Exile , Strip Mine , Phyrexian Arena , and Rhystic Study . While all of these are commander staples in their respective colors, I'd recommend refining the deck before just making a budget '5 color Good Junk' deck. While card advantage is great, the money would be better spent on something like Smothering Tithe , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Land Tax , Exploration , or Burgeoning . At least those will help cast your commander faster.

Cut out some of the nonbasic lands, starting with guildgates, and put in the Panorama lands, and swap the bounce lands for basic lands (unless you intend to add landfall).

Where's the quick ramp spells? Cards like Farseek , Cultivate , Explosive Vegetation , and Rampant Growth .

Furthermore, there's a severe lack of tutors. Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , Open the Armory and Eladamri's Call are all very budget-friendly tutor staples for EDH.

I also see that you're running Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower , but have you considered Spell Book, Praetor's Counsel , or Library of Leng ? Library of Leng has the added benefit of protecting you from discard effects. If you're going to run cards like Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study it pays to protect your hand.

How about protection yourself while you're at it. Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Sphere of Safety , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Glacial Chasm , Solitary Confinement and other such cards make great protection for decks with few to no other creatures.

Back to the subject of drawing cards. What are you even trying to draw for? You don't seem to have any major combos worth drawing for. At least throw in some cards like Furnace of Rath , Bitter Feud , Curse of Bloodletting , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Inquisitor's Flail , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and/or some double strike equipment/enchantments. Or Helm of the Host with a toke copying effect like Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession , Growing Ranks , Second Harvest , Rhys the Redeemed , and Primal Vigor .

Just some things to think about.

incontrastofsin666 on Proliferate/Token

I would start by upgrading your token generators. Enchantments like Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession , and Doubling Season should be a must. If you need a budget alternative for Doubling Season, go for Primal Vigor . The problem with the latter is that it also affects your opponents' tokens. As far as planeswalkers go, Ajani, the Greathearted does not really work in this kind of deck. You should think about other options like Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , and even Elspeth, Knight-Errant would perform better than Ajani. The deck also seems to lack removal, so I would consider adding cards like Return to Dust , Song of the Dryads , Lignify , Aura Shards (this one should be a must), Swords to Plowshares , and Path to Exile . A budget artifact that I would consider adding is Throne of the God-Pharaoh because you will constantly be tapping your creatures, so it'll trigger. It's won me multiple games. Other enchantments to consider are Mirari's Wake , Smothering Tithe (ramps you up big time), Cryptolith Rite , Divine Visitation (a must!), and Sylvan Library . In the creature department, definitely add Craterhoof Behemoth because that's the main win con for token decks. Other creatures you can add are Avacyn, Angel of Hope (adds protection to your board/ends games. If you can't afford this angel, then I would go with Akroma, Angel of Wrath because it'll do nicely if you are running Tooth and Nail ), Avenger of Zendikar , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , and Voice of Resurgence . Your artifact section seems to be spot on; if anything, I'd just consider Akroma's Memorial , Ashnod's Altar , and Eldrazi Monument . As far as sorceries, you could add Wrath of God , Finale of Glory , Tooth and Nail (if you resolve the entwine it's game over), and Natural Order . Maybe, Triumph of the Hordes if you have a large board. Once you have some of those pieces, you can start working on your mana base. If you cannot afford a Gaea's Cradle , then definitely go with Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip (not as fast as the cradle, but since you are running a token deck, it should flip the turn you cast it). Fetches are always nice, so anything that can fetch for a forest or plains will come in handy. I would also add Temple Garden , Razorverge Thicket , Canopy Vista , Wooded Bastion , and Bountiful Promenade . Other cards that will tutor things are Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling . Overall the deck looks good!
