If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?

(This was originally discussed on Reddit.)

So this guy has in play Opalescence, Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Copy Enchantment (of Doubling Season), Conspiracy (naming Golem), 1 Precursor Golem, and 12 Golem tokens on the battlefield.

He then casts and kicks Rite of Replication, targeting the Precursor Golem. The Precursor Golem trigger resolves and he places the copies of Rite of Replication on the stack in descending order: Parallel Lives, Copy Enchantment, Doubling Season, Conspiracy, and all of the Golem tokens.

How many tokens does he end up with?



Spoiler (click to reveal)
The best answer in the Reddit comments indicates that the actual number of the number of tokens contains 2.7 trillion digits, making this a number we don't have anything close to a name for or conception of.

Needless to say, it's a whole lot.

You missed the Rite Targeting the Precursor Golem, which ends up being the only one that really matters for the final count since you do alot of doubling for the number of precursor golems but they each genrate normal golems so you do alot of doubling again. The Reddit post has it right and all the math looks good to me.

Then opponent uses Chandra's Outrage

I have Rakdos Charm in my sideboard just in case this scenario comes up. Stay safe out there.

Your response should be Riot Control, Beacon of Immortality, and a Wrath of God on your turn.

Finally, keep 'em dead with Rest in Peace.

Now you're at 2x the number of creatures you wiped out.

Happy Commanding!
