Parallel Lives


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

Ok, so Changeling Berserker goes infinite with your Commander + a few cards in your list.

Infinite card draw with Temur Ascendancy.

Infinite Treasures with Ganax, Astral Hunter.

Infinite Dragon tokens with Parallel Lives, Lathliss, Dragon Queen & Adrix and Nev, Twincasters.

Infinite damage with Dragon Tempest & Scourge of Valkas.

The way it works is as follows:

Step 1: Changeling Berserker ETBs, a Champion trigger & a Commander trigger go onto the stack.

Step 2: Resolve your Commander's trigger first, creating a Changeling token, 2nd Champion trigger goes onto the stack. You now have 2 unresolved Champion triggers on the stack.

Step 3: Resolve the Token Changeling's Champion trigger, exiling the original Changeling.

Step 4: Resolve the original Changeling's Champion trigger, exiling the Token Changeling & returning the original Changeling to the battlefield.

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4.

Personally, I'd find space for it lol.

SufferFromEDHD the deck needs more upgrades. Your suggestions are good. I'd also like to add Doubling Season and Parallel Lives but at the moment I'm just trying to get this initial build completed.

Bread-and-Butter-EDH - I didn't think your comment was rude, I appreciated the passionate advice, haha. I might try swapping in Parallel Lives, Second Harvest & Adrix and Nev, Twincasters to see how they work out.

It’s driving me nuts that you still use Doubling Season in this deck instead of Parallel Lives. The counter benefit you’d see is from ugin and rhythm of the wild. All token doublers are 1mana cheaper cause the don’t have that counters ability which can make a huge early game difference.

Goldbranner, had a chance to try your strategy this past weekend and ended up winning 2/3 games mostly due to token doubler shenanigans with Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession. Ended up hitting my friend with a buffed Sanctum Weaver for 4 billion damage. Thanks for the tip! Couple questions about specific enchantments as I'm pretty new to this whole archetype:

  1. If nobody in your pod plays blue what do you swap Carpet of Flowers out for?

  2. Is Mirri's Guile superior to Sylvan Library because we generally don't need the extra draw?

  3. Is Reconnaissance just for free attack triggers off Anikthea without dying?

  4. Is Malakir Rebirth  Flip more for the backside of the land? Kaya's Ghostform fits the enchantment theme better but lacks the surprise factor. Also if we have a Greater Auramancy up then we can't hit Anikthea with the Malakir when there's a boardwipe. That's burned me a few times when I tried to use targeted protection in response to wipes.

  5. Have you played around with Concordant Crossroads? It seems like it could accelerate us a turn when we're popping off.

  6. Is there a reason you're not running Grim Guardian? I liked it as an alternate finisher when someone drops The One Ring or a Solitary Confinement or other fog style effects.

  7. Have you tried Gravebreaker Lamia? At 5CMC it's much more than Entomb but I've brought her back with Anikthea and populated it before for a "targeted" mill/tutor which seemed more efficient than the generic mill from our other cards.

Hello, fellow cat and dog enjoyer. I noticed that you pretty much stuffed every cat or dog in naya colors in that you could find but not a single changeling. While changelings might not be satisfying since they don't look like a cat or a dog, they provide great value because they actually trigger Rin & Seris ability twice generating two tokens instead of just one. They also benefit from both lord effects. Notable examples of changelings are:

Additionally, you seem to have missed (or purposfully no included?) some rather powerful cats and dogs:

Just a few for you to consider. I have a list of all good (in my opinion) cats and dogs in my Rin & Seri list: Rin and Seri

Now, let's be real: Its not the best tribal. So I wouldn't force cat and dogs as hard as you do and also supplement with normal creatures like Mondrak, Glory Dominus or Bloom Tender .

You also do not seem to have a lot of draw options in your deck. Depending on the pod you are playing in, board wipes might be present and can absolutely wreck your game plan. Draw effects help you recover from this. Sadly, Naya is not the best color combination for drawing cards and most of the good draw effects are really expensive. You can see some suggestions for draw effects in my deck list: Rin and Seri

I would highly recommend proxying if your pod allows it. Be careful with draw effect like Camaraderie or Shamanic Revelation. They look good on paper in a token theme but they are "win more" cards in my opinion. If your board got wiped and you draw into those cards, they will not do a thing to help you recover. A wheel effect like Wheel of Misfortune however, will draw you 7 fresh cards to start again.

Lastly, I would recommend getting some tutors in there. Eladamri's Call, Green Sun's Zenith, Natural Order and the like. The best card in your deck by far is Jetmir, Nexus of Revels. He is basically your secret commander. If you can resolve him with 9 creatures on the board, you can devastate your opponents out of the blue. All the more important to be able to find him if you need him.

That's all for now. Have fun!

Great deck! Just curious though; did you sideboard Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives because you favored other cards OR because you don't have them available for your deck (because if it were up to me, I'd mainboard them because of their insane potential).
