Card seems nuts with Restore Balance , Wheel of Fate , and Ancestral Vision . That also gives really good synergy with As Foretold and/or Brain in a Jar .

The trick is finding a win condition that's a sorcery with CMC < 4. Maybe burn spells like Blightning ? Token makers like Call of the Herd , Call of the Conclave , or Supply / Demand (which also tutors)? Mill might also be viable using Breaking / Entering and Glimpse the Unthinkable .

I think to get the most out of Trostani, Selesnya's Voice's populate ability, I would focus more on things that produce bigger tokens instead of a various 1/1s. Cards like Advent of the Wurm, Giant Adephage, Feudkiller's Verdict, Penumbra Wurm, Rampaging Baloths, Beast Attack or even smaller ones like Call of the Herd, Call of the Conclave, Blade Splicer would imho go much better with the population theme.

Jam more Thragtusk. More Beast Within. Disruption, tokens, lifegain. Interacting with your opponent doesn't sound as good as an infinitely scaling threat, but is mostly a stronger option.

Rhonas's Last Stand is the newest interesting thing for the archetype, giving some much needed early power.

Mercy Killing doesn't sound great, but is almost playable. Wolfbriar Elemental is similar.

Then we get to the janky stuff. Call of the Herd or Mouth // Feed, perhaps, Pulse of the Tangle or Cobra Trap. Things to stop you dying to early creature drops. Giantbaiting into Second Harvest is a fun option. It of the Horrid Swarm or Miming Slime exist. Mitotic Slime is obnoxious if you can proc it. Ooze Garden can be a lot of fun. Slime Molding seems interesting alongside song/ Spore Swarm/Sprout Swarm

There are also weird rebuild options like Prototype Portal/Soul Foundry with artifact creatures and golem tokens, elf tribal, Khalni Garden/land token generation builds. Lots of cards, nothing that has shaken the world recently. Good luck with the build.

Try running some more efficient ramp like Rampant Growth and Elvish Mystic. Thragtusk, Call of the Herd, and Scavenging Ooze are some pretty solid creatures that shouldn't be too hard/expensive to find due to their recent reprints in modern masters 2017. Also, you don't have any white mana producers besides Servant of the Conduit and Cryptolith Rite to help cast Oath of Ajani, so I'd probably cut that from the deck.

Some other solid and accessible monogreen cards you may want to consider are Ant Queen, Acidic Slime, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Overrun, and Sakura-Tribe Elder

I also felt like The poachers was the weaker of the two decks mainly because all of the removal only basically starts on turn 4 and the creatures you're putting out aren't as big. The reason I didn't make this a "beast" deck was because I didn't feel it was specific enough so I looked at elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, snakes and the like and steered clear of soldiers, shamans, monks and other subtypes which was a tough restriction lol. (and yes there are 16 creatures but there's also Call of the Herd). You're right about Africa being a huge place so is there a more specific region you would refer to?

It's a good start. Removal in green is very hard to find so I like the small touches.

However, something about commander is you always want to have some sort of interaction with your general. It's certainly not necessary but with Multani, I think it's more fun. If you get some card draw in your deck, it would work really well with him.

Try Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Collective Unconscious, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Glimpse of Nature, Heartwood Storyteller, Fecundity, Primordial Sage, Regal Force, Rites of Flourishing, Shamanic Revelation, Soul of the Harvest, Triumph of Ferocity or Zendikar Resurgent.

Another important thing in commander is a solid mana base. Running 38 Forests is not all bad but you want some more interaction with your deck. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go really well in your deck. You might also want to consider a Sol Ring and Gilded Lotus because those are commander staples.

Now, what to cut.

Let's start with creatures. One thing you have to think about when casting any kind of spell in a commander game is, "Is this spell worth the mana cost?" and "Does this spell have any kind of interaction in my deck?".

In my opinion, these are the creatures you need to cut. To the right of each, I will put some substitutes:

Ancient Ooze

Ancient Silverback

Awakener Druid

Bloodbriar

Crocodile of the Crossing

Duskdale Wurm ... Pelakka Wurm

Emperor Crocodile

Nessian Asp

Pathbreaker Wurm ... Nylea, God of the Hunt or Brawn or Thunderfoot Baloth or even Primal Rage

Plated Crusher

Prized Unicorn

Pouncing Cheetah

Quilled Slagwurm

Ridgescale Tusker

Scaled Behemoth

Shoe Tree ... This is illegal in commander.

Skysnare Spider

Woodborn Behemoth

Yavimaya Ancients

Yew Spirit

A lot of the creatures you have just don't have much synergy in your deck. Cut them and try out the other recommendations I've given you thus far.

Other cards to cut with recommendations:

Call of the Herd ... Not really worth it unless you're running a token deck which you are not.

Prey Upon ... It's just not very good in commander. Try Ulvenwald Tracker

Might of Old Krosa ... Meh. Try Giant Growth

Shed Weakness ... Unnecessary. Again. Giant Growth

Genju of the Cedars

Gift of Paradise

Living Terrain

Sheltered Aerie

Trial of Strength

Zendikar's Roil

TL;DR I like your deck. It's a good first time commander deck. Try to cut some of the creatures out that don't have any synergy with it. Card draw would go well with your deck. Mono green always has ramp.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Welcome to the format.

Thank you for commenting, [user:PotatoCat]. Yes I have thought about using that card. I have it listed in the description as a possible alternative for the Call of the Herd slot. Think it'll be worth it?
