You might swap out Diabolic Tutor in favor of Mastermind's Acquisition .

I built a deck around life-burning opponents with Tainted Remedy . Spells like Congregate and Rest for the Weary are really fun. You might find something worth considering in my decklist: Listerine.

Hey, first of all, awesome deck! I’ve always loved tokens and Selesnya, so this is right up my alley.

If you’re looking for some options to optimize it and make it more competitive, I do have some suggestions. Congregate is cool and can certainly turn some games around, but in a lot of matchups it will be a 4 mana sorcery that gains you a bunch of life, but doesn’t stop your opponents infinite combo from killing you next turn. Emmara Tandris strikes me as something similar: an expensive play that has a good chance of being irrelevant when you cast it.

Both Start / Finish and Birds of Paradise seem to want to be doing different things, with the split card playing a longer, grindier game, and the birds looking to ramp you quickly into big plays.

Now, lest it sound like I’m just trashing all over the deck, here’s a bunch of my favorite Green and White tokens cards, in no particular order, you might have fun with. Huatli, Radiant Champion , Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, Wayfaring Temple , Triplicate Spirits , Secure the Wastes , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar .

Hope this helps!!

Congregate is super annoying given it can get like 20 life or so

A token build, interesting. I like the payoff with aetherflux, perhaps you'd also like Congregate for a pretty big bump in life. If you want to win with tokens then cards like Mirror Entity , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Shared Animosity could be solid additions. ( Mirrorweave can also be real cheeky)

And if you aren't unwilling to win via combo, then you could add in a Goblin Bombardment . It's already a great token card but goes infinite with the gift of immortality and sun titan you have in your deck.

Great start!

Some budget suggestions: Goldnight Commander , Healer of the Pride , Mentor of the Meek , Mirror Entity , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , Congregate , and Entrapment Maneuver .

I know those are all white cards so you definitely won't want to use them all, but some may fir in pretty well. Mirror Entity and Goldnight Commander can help you go tall if going wide isn't a winning option.

The hard part with tribal decks is having a reason to actually play the tribe. Right now you've got Sporecrown Thallid but that's it. You could consider Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton, and if you're willing to splash into another color you should definitely spring for Slimefoot, the Stowaway and Pack's Disdain.

As for sideboard, the two general directions you can go in is planning for the decks that are good against you, or planning for the meta (the decks you expect to play against). Wrath effects and dedicated burn decks will both be a struggle for you. I'd recommend you up the number of Heroic Interventions for fighting against control since you can't recover very well from a wrath. I'd also recommend you look at some cheap lifegain or way to interact with burn. I see Congregate there, but by the time you're able to cast it burn decks will have already killed you. Timely Reinforcements is a good option, so is Blessed Alliance. Leyline of Sanctity is a great option too, but its pretty pricey. If you splash black like I suggested you could even look at a few copies of Collective Brutality. Beyond that you should expect the meta. It's very graveyard heavy right now, so I'd recommend 1-3 copies of Rest in Peace. Tron and Storm are also both present, so 1-3 copies of Damping Sphere would be a good idea as well. Artifact and enchantment destruction is always good to have access to, so 1-3 copies of either Fragmentize or Naturalize would serve you well. 1-2 copies of Pithing Needle can be nice as a catch-all, and a bit of extra removal in the form of Blessed Alliance, Journey to Nowhere, or Condemn could be nice in some games too. If you run black those could swap for Fatal Push, Collective Brutality, or Go for the Throat. With the addition of black you could also throw in some hand disruption against combo or control, things like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek.

Whatever you choose to do, good luck!
