Be Fruitful and Populate

I wrote a new article for and you can find it here (

I currently like token decks in the metagame because of cards like Call of the Conclave, Trostani, and Thragtusk. I don’t actually have all of the cards in the list I posted, so I have to make due with what I have at the moment. I’m running more of a token control deck at the moment with 4 Oblivion Rings main, as well as 2 Terminus. Control decks have exploded in the metagame recently, and I like this decks ability to keep creatures in play, even after board wipes. Thragtusk and Lingering Souls let you keep a board presence, and with cards like Parallel Lives you can quickly get an army on the board for the next turn.

While I like the synergy of Sorin in this deck, I think tokens would work better in a Naya deck that has access to cards like Hellrider and Bonfire of the Damned. Naya is weakened until Boros and Gruul lands come out in Gatecrash, but it still packs QUITE a punch and Thundermaw Hellkite fits well in there too. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the metagame brings.

If you have any comments about the deck, post them below or on the other website. Thanks!
