I am not sold on your key combo - Peace of Mind to discard Deep Forest Hermit to reanimate it with Vesperlark is a whole host of moving parts, none of which have suitable redundancies. That said, I think Noose Constrictor is probably an upgrade to Peace of Mind - the body with reach is nifty, and the lack of mana cost in its discard ability is invaluable.

A couple copies of Arbor Elf for ramp, and a splash of blue for Intruder Alarm would also enable you to go infinite with Squirrel Nest .

Another nasty thing you can do is add Squirrel Nest and Earthcraft

It's really more of a meme than anything.

During MH1 draft, there was a guy at my table running Selesnya Squirrels and he DOMINATED the game. He came in 1st place.

He had Squirrel Nest and Deep Forest Hermit , but he ALSO had like 3x Astral Drift to keep the engine going.

He took down multiple Sliver decks. Think about that.

So I've picked up Boneyard Wurm and added in a few more bits of token generation with Garruk Relentless  Flip and Squirrel Nest . I've also swapped out Naturalize for Avoid Fate to help protect me from removal. Lastly, I've started building out my sideboard for more specialized situations

Good morning, DoWell. Thanks for commenting. THe reason I don't run those cards is because I run a lot of boardwipes, and Torpor Orb , which really kills Avenger of Zendikar . But I feel if people don't run these cards, they should definitely run Avenger of Zendikar and Craterhoof Behemoth especially with Tooth and Nail .

I specifically am running a stax-style deck in which the wincons aren't necessarily buff creatures, but through direct damage like Squall Line , lands attacking like Sylvan Awakening , and funny dumb things like infinite squirrels Earthcraft + Squirrel Nest . I mean, squirrels and forests are buddies here. :)

I'm just gonna talk about the cards in the maybe board.

all of the un mentioned cards are just meh in a token deck.

As a deck as a whole. What you got looks good there isn't much I would change. It looks good.

Cards I would maybe change for better ones are

  • Mycoloth , if you go to big with this card it's likely to get killed and all you've managed to do was kill all your creatures.
  • Emmara Tandris 7 mana is a lot for a card that does not make any tokens and only cares about tokens. Of times you'll play this card it will be the only thing you do that turn leaving you with no responses for removal.
  • Wilt-Leaf Liege although it's easy to cast I doesn't ad much to the token deck. This would be better as Triumph of the Hordes .
  • Trostani Discordant is only just okay. If creature theft is a thing in your meta then keep it. Otherwise add Homeward Path and if it's for the tokens and the buff there is better stuff for that.

For more token deck tech ideas check out my token deck. I've been working on it for over 5 yrs now.

That's true. It's a good combo; cheap and doesn't require Ghave. But outside of Earthcraft , Squirrel Nest is a rather dead card. As cheap as the combo is I'd rather have my combo pieces be able to function elsewhere in the deck.

Brought Back is an interesting idea. Again it really has only the one combo, but outside of that it could save some combo pieces for us.

Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft + Soul Warden = all the tokens and life you want.
