Blade of Selves is incredibly powerful with Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith. You'll have to sac all the tokens it makes since they're all legendary, but you still get the ETB trigger from each of them. Being able to tutor up 2-3 pieces of equipment every turn is insane. Helm of the Host is another option; it gets you one token (and therefore one piece of equipment), but you get to keep the token. It also works really well with Arahbo, Roar of the World, giving you multiple instances of his +3/+3 start of combat trigger.

I'd also recommend Kusari-Gama, which is a sorely underappreciated Voltron option that can turn your big swinger into a one-sided board wipe when combined with Grappling Hook. Force something to block, then deal all that damage to every creature they control.

I would get rid of

Blade of Selves: the token copies get sac'd before they can do anything if you put it on sigarda, and if you don't what's the point?

Stoneforge Mystic, Steelshaper's Gift and Stonehewer Giant: assuming you take my advice on the blade, you're left with 3 equipment cards, so having tutors specifically related to equipments seems like overkill. You could make an argument in their favor because they grab darksteel plate which really helps you out, but I feel like if it's just to get that one card there are better ways to get it that don't just become dead draws if you've drawn all your equipment first. Like drawing your entire deck off enchantress triggers for example.

From there it gets kinda iffy. I can see alot of cards that can be potential cuts here. For example, with only 34 lands it seems that if you don't get exploration and Burgeoning in your opening hand you're likely to have all the lands out of your hand before you get them making them basically dead draws, but you do have alot of +x/+x for each enchantment you control so maybe between that and all of your enchantress triggers keeping your hand full of land they do pull their weight

Cool deck. Maybe Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host to get a few extra apostles to sac...

so i don't know why your running Trinket Mage, doesn't hit like anything in your deck.

In my opinion Boreas Charger isn't very good, and same goes for Pilgrim's Eye.

i don't think Lightform and Yennet, Cryptic Sovereign are too good considering your lack of big stuff

Eldrazi Displacer can only be activated with like three of your lands, so i don't think its worth running.

Mulldrifter is good here, might as well run it instead of one of your draw cards, definitly better then Treasure Hunt.

Infinite Reflection is a whole lotta fun, powerful, dumb stuff

Day of dragons is insane in this deck. Basically you get a whole bunch of 5/5 flyers, hit you opponents with em, then flicker it to get a bunch of etbs from your minions, and then get the 5/5s back. Also makes you basically immune to board wipes, including your own. Angel of Despair Luminate Primordial and Ashen Rider are good high end to help you beat down your opponents with high value etbs.

cards like Lavinia of the Tenth, Stonehorn Dignitary, Knight-Captain of Eos and Azorius Justiciar do a good job of protecting your face and aminatou, and stalling for the big stuff

if you like gonti then Jace's Mindseeker is for you.

Cathars' Crusade and Dire Undercurrents are really good with stuff like Eerie Interlude

Rite of Replication, Hour of Eternity and Pull from the Deep are crazy in the late game

if you can find one Blade of Selves is really good

I feel like for Rat Colony to do anything here you're gonna need way more of them. With only 12 there's a decent chance that you never see a second one. It's certainly not enough to reliably hit with Thrumming Stone, which would require a minimum of 25 rats. And once you have them, they aren't doing much in Commander to begin with. I'd recommend cutting the rats completely and focusing more on the token/drain route. I also don't think 32 lands is enough, especially with such a small number of rocks.

Some extra ways to abuse Torgaar's ETB trigger: Conjurer's Closet, Erratic Portal, Blade of Selves.

For one thing, I'd say take out some of the sorcery speed removal you have. You already have a ton of free removal thanks to your creature base, and instant speed is generally better unless it's a mass removal option. But your creature base has a ton of singular removal so you might not need as many removal spells that only target one permanent.

Also maybe Blade of Selves? It probably won't interact in the same way as Gyrus, Waker of Corpses normally does, but I could be wrong. Although it's a super useful card overall.

First of all, you have 1 extra card in the list, so you will need to cut a card. On to some suggestions! I am not sure what you budget is but I'll try to mention some budget and non-budget suggestions.

For extra, repeatable blink effects, Erratic Portal and Cloudstone Curio are great additions. Blade of Selves and Minion Reflector give you short lived tokens that ETB as well.

You run a lot of miracles, which are great! But you are running very little top-deck manipulation. Sensei's Divining Top, Crystal Ball, and Seer's Lantern are great. Scroll Rack is also a solid option, but I'd caution against using it without a lot of ways to shuffle your library. Ponder and it's ilk are other possibilities.

Lastly, your curve is a bit high for just 36 lands. I'd suggesting adding one more. 37-38 is generally where you want to be with your avg CMC.

Good luck and happy deck building!

I'm not sure if I missed it, but Bramble Sovereign is outstanding with trostani, as well as Blade of Selves. They are definitely MVPs.
