Primal Vigor is one of the newest "Magic: The Gathering" cards spoiled today Oct. 15, 2013 in an article by Bruce Richard on DailyMtg.com. Primal Vigor is a powerful green rare featured in Wizards of the Coast's upcoming "Commander (2013 Edition)."
Primal Vigor - 4G
If one or more tokens would be put onto the battlefield, twice that many of those tokens are put onto the battlefield instead.
If one or more +1/+1 counters would be placed on a creature, twice that many +1/+1 counters are placed on that creature instead.
It's impossible to look at Primal Vigor without comparing it to Doubling Season. Unlike the iconic "Ravnica: City of Guilds" and "Modern Masters" rare though, Primal Vigor is a fixed version that impacts both players without doing the crazy broken things that Doubling Season is best known for: Mainly its abuse with planeswalkers. Doubling season allows the ultimate abilities of Xenagos, the Reveler and Elspeth, Sun's Champion to be used right away instead after several turns. Not with Primal Vigor.
If you thought attacking with a Kalonian Hydra in a Simic deck was sick, try sticking quadruple the +1/+1 counters on your creatures with Primal Vigor instead of just double. There's a plethora of cards that produce creature tokens or deal with +1/+1 counters for you to abuse Primal Vigor with, from Abhorrent Overlord to Korozda Guildmage. One commander deck that makes excellent choice for Primal Vigor is Ghave, Guru of Spores. You'll have access to other amazing cards that interact with +1/+1 counters such as Corpsejack Menace or token creatures like Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. You'll be able to do some fun things with neglected enchantments like Ooze Flux. Primeval Bounty is another card that shines with or without Primal Vigor on the battlefield, and Ogre Slumlord is fantastic in multiplayer games too.
