Grimgrinner on Toski's Happy Tree Friends

Optional upgrades!! - I will only recommend cards that stay on the theme of small creatures getting big or overwhelming. If you want a Toski deck full of big threats, look at another build.

- Hall of Triumph pretty solid honestly. I just had trouble finding the deck slot for it. Run it if you like!

- Birds of Paradise - sure it's a worse Scryb Sprites in this deck but its also another Scryb Sprites and ramps so eh?

- Hope of Ghirapur better than scryb sprites and comes in for free off our Helm of Awakening but doesn't benefit from our green buff spells. Also that ability will probably draw some ire when people can't cast their turn 2 Arcane Signet or Rampant Growth or whatever.

- Skullclamp ill let you figure this one out

- Commander's Plate Toski get big and protection from 4 colors. What's not to like?

- Bow of Nylea The static deathtouch alone is worth the CMC. $6+ though, not as budget friendly. If you played during theros though, you probably opened about 3-4 of these and they're sitting in chaff boxes.

- Exploration I mean, yeah. look at it.

- Azusa, Lost but Seeking Its pretty good. Hard to drop the lands consistently. Make sure you got the draw to fuel her and something to spend all that mana on. She's better in landfall decks, really, and our only landfall in here is Scute Swarm .

- Heroic Intervention great for board wipes or combat tricks. Not so smug with your 1-mana Blasphemous Act eh?

Yeah... the "difficult to assemble" part is what's getting me here. Scute Swarm is also a very target-worthy card, and if it gets removed you've been two-for-one'd. I'd consider cutting it as mentioned prior--but I can see at least why it's here in the first place now. Thanks for explaining that ;3

Omniscience_is_life Those are decent observations but I fear you are missing two facts:

I really like that green has stuff like Progenitor Mimic , Scute Swarm , Spawnwrithe , Giant Adephage , and Permeating Mass , as well as Rhys the Redeemed . But I want a card like Brood of Cockroaches , Endless Cockroaches to be like that and Ogre Slumlord .

Cockroach Infestation

Creature - Insect

When a nontoken creature dies, at the beginning of the next end step, create a token copy of Cockroach Infestation.

1/1


This is designed to basically limit how combos using it can work. Also, it'll be amazing in a devotion deck, as every token is 3 devotion to black.

I'd like to see a White card that uses the Battalion/Mentor mechanic, and also creates token copies of itself, like Legion Warboss , making copies of itself, and monowhite.

Ohh this is a mean brew. Might I suggest adding Elvish Reclaimer to search up that Gaia's Cradle or any other juicy land and also maybe an Omnath, Locus of Mana or Scute Swarm

Also I just noticed how awesome the combo of Parcelbeast on Scute Swarm + Risen Reef since they all become elementals.

Stop the presses!

Public service announcement: infinite land ETBs available for the easy price of:

Kodama of the East Tree + Bounce Land + any landfall token producer (such as Field of the Dead, Scute Swarm, Sporemound, Zendikar's Roil, Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths).

Stack the triggers so that the Bounce Land returns to hand, the token ETBs from the landfall trigger (from the Bounce Land), and then the Kodama trigger resolves from the token entering the battlefield (CMC 0) allowing you to put a CMC 0 permanent (the Bounce Land you returned to hand) onto the battlefield to start the loop again. The beauty is that this can be stopped at any time.

Unfortunately you can't gain infinite mana without an Amulet of Vigor or Lotus Cobra but this is a big step for the deck. Probably not the most timely seeing as this has probably been out in the open for a while now but it's a chance to look over the focus of the deck and possibly look at adding more tutor or creature tutor effects to try and bring out Kodama of the East Tree or potentially try to find ways to cheat it out as quickly as possible.

Things to be excited for:

Things to be careful of though: Valakut Exploration may cause you to exile your entire deck if you go too deep, but you should be winning on the turn you go off, but don't go for it unless you have the mana to do it.

Either way, Kodama of the East Tree is making its way into this deck. Main thing will be finding the optimal strategy/timing to go off, and how much of a pain it will be to stack the triggers outside of paper magic. Protecting the Kodama will be key to the strategy.

Part of the power is the many ways you can find/play the bouncelands in this deck. I'm still not convinced Rakdos Carnarium is worth it because of the slow mana and colour fixing, two bouncelands should do with the number of tutors, but the question will be whether it is worth it for the MILL value, the chance that you might just flip it into the graveyard and play it from there to go off. Either way it will require some deep thought on how to best balance out this new horizon of potential for Lord Windgrace.

oof! Mystic Reflection cast in response to a landfall trigger for Scute Swarm with Avenger of Zendikar and Purphoros, God of the Forge out?! You can easily get like 12 1/1 tokens for Scute Swarm's triggered ability. Having like 12 Avengers enter sounds awesome!
