Combos very well with Séance.

You can do it for Splinter twin, yes. When an ability activates at the beginning of your upkeep it goes on the stack. Then you can do things in response to your upkeep abilities going on the stack. And since your Untap phase happens before the Upkeep phase you can ensure your splinter twin permanent is available for use.

Same thing applies to Seance, as you get to choose what order your triggered upkeep abilities go on the stack. So you decide to put this cards ability on the stack first and then Seance. Seance triggers, you get your 1-turn token, then you populate, getting a permanent copy.

This card belongs in just about every token deck ever. Even the ones that don't use G or W, since you get to pick between the two. Awesome.

At the very least one free creature every turn basically.

One free 8/8 Elemental with Vigilance. Every turn.

I'd hate to think about how ugly this is going to be with a well-mapped Dance of Many. Remember that ending the Dance only exiles the INITIAL token. All future tokens from Growing Ranks are free agents (well, as free as anything of Selesnya is willing to be...). Best of all, you can end the Dance once the first population is performed, and you still have your self-replicating Primeval Titan/Cloudhoof Ranger/Snapcaster Mage/etc.

At the beginning of your upkeep, copulate.

No good can come of this curving into Doubling Season.

And shame on you FIRST PERSON TO COMMENT for not beating me to ''obligatory Doubling Season Comment''. ;)

question: can you tap a Splinter Twin to have the token out right before this activates during upkeep?

edit: thanks for clarifying that Vakyoom your post was very helpful!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
