I like this one the least out of the 5.
And here I was thinking that if you took the best elements from Ajani and Odric decks, you'd have almost a perfect white aggro deck.


Here it is (with green).

Edit: Except no exiling, which is Odric's saving grace.
Kekekekeke... oh look, it's Swords to Plowshares. Now if only the token limit wasn't 100 in this game...
Am I the only one who thinks that the deck designer screwed up by not including Craterhoof Behemoth in this deck?
Overrun >= Craterhoof Behemoth in almost every situation.
I really like the deck, but what Qasali Pridemage and Novablast Wurm (especially this one) are doing here?

I'll take Naturalize on a body with Qasali Pridemage, limited games like Duels should eat that up. Novablast Wurm just seems like something thrown in there to let people have fun if they want to. Reminds of the phrase "EDH fodder" when jank rares come out, but here it's like "Planechase fodder".

Quasil as a Artifact/Entchant removal? The Novablast thing is kinda weired tough.

Why are we questioning the inclusion of Novablast Wurm in a deck with 2 x Dauntless Escort and Loxodon Hierarch?


My 7/7 attacks and destroys all creatures, cept mine.
The Wurm also curves out perfectly with Biorhythm. Cast Wurm, next turn attack with Wurm, cast Biorhythm, win.
I got what the pridemage is doing here, but it's strange to have a creature with exalted in a token deck. Naturalize would be more, I don't know, flavorful. The same with the Wurm. Why a Selenya mage would want to destroy all his creatures?

I like this deck, again it reminds me of Ghave in commander

loxodon hierarch is great in here too as it stops opponents from sweeping away your horde 
Cute a Saproling deck ! Maybe a bit too aggro, but much better than knights and elves.
Wish it was a little more based on its theme. It's of course quite token-based, but it also has lots of random creatures like Nightguard Patrol. Raise the Alarm for instance would've fit much better.
This is almost exactly what is in my Tolsimir Wolfblood EDH deck. Obviously between this Garruck, Ancient Wilds, and the Golari deck, I think I found my dream decks.
What does promo unlocks mean?
No convoke spells like Scatter the seeds, and a green deck without mana ramp (Civic Wayfinder doesn't increase the number of lands on the field)?

Ramp is not really what I would look for with a deck like this.
I mean, this deck doesn't really have many 6 or higher cmc spells to ramp into....

I am too...
I think this deck will be a lot more powerful than people give it credit for.

2 x Intangible Virtue
3 x Parallel Lives 
3 x Hero of Bladehold 
2 x Overrun  
2 x Dauntless Escort 
3 x Loxodon Hierarch  
2 x Beastmaster Ascension  

+ a ton of ways to make tokens. 

It'll be a quality deck.

 
Underestimated...

I couldn't find a good picture of the "Critters" ball but you get the idea.
So, what happens when Hero of Bladehold ( ) attacks when Silent Arbiter is on the table?
Based on the rulings with:

gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details....

You would get 3 attackers, with minimum power of 2 on each of the new tokens, and the opportunity to block only 1 creature.

Creatures put onto the battlefield attacking is checked after declarations of attack are deemed to be legal, so seemingly illegal options for attack after this point will not be.

508.4. If a creature is put onto the battlefield attacking, its controller chooses which defending player or which planeswalker a defending player controls it's attacking as it enters the battlefield (unless the effect that put it onto the battlefield specifies what it's attacking). Such creatures are "attacking" but, for the purposes of trigger events and effects, they never "attacked."

Robvalue: Copy target bug or glitch. You may choose a new card for the copy...

Will never buy games made by Arena Net again.

Will not buy Duel 2015 until 2HG reinstated.

Nice to know removing content is a company wide policy.
The soldiers still attack I think as you have already declared attackers (the hero) and the soldiers are a triggered effect. The same with geist of saint traft too I guess. It is quite unclear though so I might be wrong

Sweet! thanks.
Silklash spider, omg Yes! Yes charlie!! Collective might just got a set of 2 of the best reach creature in the game.

This.

 


I was surprised it took page 2 for someone to say it. Then, you can Biorhythm for style even though you could alternatively just swing all of your presumably amassed tokens at this point if you've used escort and not hierarch as combo, unblocked.

Deck CMC breakdown.

This deck is gonna have a lot of ammo as far as low cost cards.
Nice breakdown RushNlowZ

Like with the other decks I combined similar cards to make the deck contents easier to read.
If nobody finds this interesting, I apologize, but it can't be helped. The card tags on this board make my list so much better, so for my sake I will post it.

Edited to include 1-ofs. So now this post contains everything except the lands.
let me know if I missed a card. :p
Rockshard, your organization of the deck into CMC is very useful, but there is no reason to exclude the 1 ofs.  That is information everyone will want.

Just imagine what an Obedient Dead decklist would look like without the 1 ofs - there would be almost no fatties except nightmare and reiver!  Liliana has a variety of fatties at the top of the curve.

This.
I believe this deck is relatively straitforward in build, hence here is mine!



Tokens, tokens and pump, most almost all the non token creature are multicolor to take advantage of liege and wolfblood as a bonus, I'm a little worried how slow Beastmaster's ascension is, but that bonus really feels like it is worth it, we could really use an overrun number 3 and 4. Plus you get that bonus immediately during the combat step, so it may come online faster than I'm thinking, if it proves too slow too often it could probably be a Civic Wayfinder.
I agree with most of your card choices, except for the Behemoth Sledges. I'm not sure what my build will look like yet, but I want to include Intangible Virtue, Parallel Lives, and Sprout. I'm also not sure about including both Overrun  and Beastmaster Ascention, as both of those serve the same function. Of course, that would require testing to see whether or not both should be run.

I am Blue/White

I feel like Juniper Order Ranger is an auto include, with all the instant speed creature creation.  I might even run Novablast Wurm for the hell of it, cause it is hilarious.
Aren't you missing intangible virtue?  Combos very well with Knotvine Paladin.  I think I will run virtue, paladin, and parrallel lives, remove jade mage, elamdari's call, marshall's anthem, and . . . not sure what else.  The two elephant guys are great if you have tokens on the board that you need to regenerate, but I am not sure how well they will work in practice.  Most of the decks that have board sweepers can simply target them first and sweep the next turn. 

I guess my worry with this deck is the lack of efficient token producers like raise the alarm and captain's call.  All these creatures that produce tokens for mana are fine and dandy if you reach a standoff with your opponent, but I don't think the deck has nearly enough mana accelleration to support these token engines. 

Its possible the deck is better than we think.  I think something like turn 2 knotvine, turn 3 fists of ironwood and swing for 4 isn't too bad. 

Hero of bladehold is obviously the all-star of the deck in my opinion.  Does she trigger beastmaster ascension?  If so, you could get a turn 5 beastmaster:

Turn 3 beastmaster, turn 4 hero, turn 5 parrallel lives, swing and create 4 tokens, would end up making 4 6/5 tokens and the hero herself would be 8/9!

Honestly it seems like 80% of the deck is spells that support your tokens or can potentially make you tokens with a big mana investment, but it lacks the kind of removal or lifegain necessary to actually stabilize a board position and use all this utility.

Behemoth sledges are very very good in here, as it's really hard to lose with it as long as you have creatures to equip to, and this deck, in theory, should always have creatures to equip to, even the smallest 1/1 becomes a threat with this around.

I don't like intangible virtue because it only pumps tokens, we run so many creatures that I want to pump everything, (If you think of regular creatures as pseudo tokens this makes alot of sense.) This plus the two drop slots are saturated as it is. Plus sometimes we just don't get alot of token producers or they eat removal spells, making this a dead card.

I don't like Parallel lives at all, tapping out with four mana for a spell that dosen't do something right away for a chance to double tokens, seems win more. If I can get a steady supply of tokens going I'm probably going to win without this things help.

Sprout is just a 1/1, I know it says token on it, but that's all it is a 1/1.

I would NEVER cut overrun, as it is easily the best card in the deck, beastmaster ascension would come close but is slower but more powerful.
