Creature — Insect
Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, create a 1/1 green Insect creature token. If you control six or more lands, create a token that’s a copy of this instead.

Scute Swarm Discussion
4 days ago
ChrisHansonBiomancin thanks for the help! I think maybe you’re right about having too many sac outlets and not enough stuff to sac. With that said, do you have any ideas as to something in black the consistently creates tokens? Ideally if there was something that created black tokens this gives me more fodder for Ayara, First of Locthwain and Bastion of Remembrance . When reading your comment I initially thought of Scute Swarm but I’m not sure there’s enough payoff with it to make it make sense.

Your deck looks like it's off to a great start for being new to this! One thing I'd recommend is maybe adding a couple more Mana Dorks like Fyndhorn Elves , Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic etc. You're creeping close to an average CMC of 4, and want to reliably cast not only Esix, but some of those bigger token producers.
I'd also recommend checking out Lazotep Plating as a board protection option, and has a token attached to it for Esix to play with. Other cheaper token producers to check out are Master of Waves , Spawnwrithe , Mist-Syndicate Naga , Scute Swarm , and Tendershoot Dryad . I would place more emphasis on Scute Swarm or Tendershoot, since they can pump out multiple tokens per turn cycle.
If you want to make use of Esix's ability, try to have creatures that have Enter the Battlefield Effects, which can be reused as you make token copies. Some potential cards for this effect use could be Reclamation Sage and Mulldrifter .
If you're interested, check out my Adrix and Nev deck Fibonacci Debauchery. It's not super budget, but I do have stuff in my Maybeboard that might be of interest.
I would also recommend checking out The Command Zone's Pre-Con Upgrade video. They talk about the Quandrix pre-con in detail and recommend some budget upgrades with Esix as the commander of the deck.

Hey, thanks for checking out my Archelos deck too! I like your build! Two suggestion from my build that aren't expensive are Scute Swarm and Altar of Dementia . You already have the token creation with Rampaging Baloths and a mill win condition with Ruin Crab , so both would synergize really well!
Scute Swarm gets out of hand really quickly and is just hilarious, and then Altar of Dementia is great alternative milling win condition if you can't attack or someone tries to board wipe (I happen to play with a guy who loves pillow fort enchantments, so attacking with token doesn't always work).
Sweet deck though!

You may want to add Scute Swarm into the deck as a mutation target

Combo lines; Commander + Life and Limb / Ambush Commander / Natural Affinity + any sac outlet like alter of dementia (this one is actually game winning) gives you infinite etb and death triggers plus infinite mana. Ways to finish the game after that include Walking Ballista / Goblin Cannon , Soul of the Harvest / Fecundity / Staff of Domination to draw your entire library, Season of Growth / Path of Discovery to scry your way to another wincon, Seed the Land , Genesis Chamber , Scute Swarm , Zendikar's Roil for infinite tokens, Baru, Fist of Krosa for infinitely huge trample creatures, Essence Warden / Retreat to Kazandu for infinite life then hit people with a Squall Line

Back to two set blocks would mean getting rid of Core Sets again, I feel like that would be a shame, the core sets feel really good since they returned. And there's a format where every mechanic can be played: Limited. I thought "One set blocks" were only a limitation in draft format, so the second and/or third set don't need to be constrained by being compatible with the previous (two) set(s) and can focus on being a self-contained format. Guilds of Ravnica/Ravnica Allegiance/War of the Spark felt like a classic three set block, but I'm glad the draft format didn't include 1 pack of each, it would mean War of the Spark would have been opened a lot less, and cards like Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Teferi, Time Raveler would have been a lot more expensive during their Standard run as a result.
On top of that, Wizards has never limited themselves to printing synergistic cards only in blocks that should focus on the mechanics they contain. Some of the best Landfall creatures aren't from Zendikar, just look at Courser of Kruphix and Tireless Tracker and how playable those have been in other formats.
I started actively playing Magic with the introduction of two block sets (Battle for Zendikar) and I feel like availablity of the cards, and consistency of good draft formats, has been greatly improved since then. It's probably more creatively constraining to have to find more unique mechanics to focus an entire set in that go well with Mutate for the second Ikoria iteration, than it would be to just move along and print something like Scute Swarm which happens to work great with Mutate, without the in-plane connection.

Well the only synergy is Kaervek limiting the options to tap the troll. With bastion the pipers are 2cmc 2dmg/2leach. This is a rough version 1 on my attempt to make Troll decent. I'm testing a golgari version with Scute Swarm too, but red might be an option. Thanks for the comment.
