manticoreknight great that you mention Darien, King of Kjeldor, he's already in the deck, I just forgot to update the protagonist section. My fault, sorry. But King Macar is a great suggestion, thank you!

Sun Quan, Lord of Wu works well for Théoden King mechanically, but if you are aiming more for an "appearance"-oriented one, Darien, King of Kjeldor works, too.

Wow man, this is really coming together! Looks really powerful. The only suggestions I can make would be maybe cut Army of the Damned and Darien, King of Kjeldor. The token cards seem weird and possibly slots to upgrade? Maybe not. Looks good.

Pollenbright Wings is a pretty interesting little card, but I do not think there is space in the deck for it. While it plays very well with Karona, she is a difficult card to safely cast--each enchantment must also be viable on Sovereigns of Lost Alara, Celestial Ancient, or Chromanticore (or sometimes even the enchantresses, if I'm, in a bind). Fun as Pollenbright Wings could be, it does little for these other creatures, making it a dead draw if I can't get Karona fielded.

Darien, King of Kjeldor also comes out a tad late, and is a bit counterproductive with the numerous "don't attack me" enchantments going on. It's additional deterrence on a body which does not work well as a voltron base.

Tempt with Vengeance might be fun in a wider Karona deck, but I don't think this is that deck. It could be a powerful win condition if Karona is in play, but that's not a given and it has little utility other than creating non-flying chump blockers. I'll still test it some since the ramp package should lead to some explosive plays, but I'm not sure it will make the final cut.

Thanks for your feedback! Glad you enjoyed it.

Might I suggest Pollenbright Wings? Since you always control the aura, you will make saprolings even when your opponents swing with Karona! And Karona makes even a small saproling army deadly. Darien, King of Kjeldor is the perfect pillowfort card alongside Karona for similar reasons. I've also found Tempt with Vengeance to be very fun. Anyway awesome deck, great job!

Looks good man. Here's some card suggestions, mostly on the cheap:

Oblation - shuffle opponents commanders, or whatever else

Swiftfoot Boots - your commander will be a removal target, give him hexproof

Sol Ring - Every EDH deck should have this card

Illusionist's Bracers - Every time you activate your commanders abilities, this gives you the same affect a second time

Keen Sense / Snake Umbra - These pair with your commanders' Lightning Bolt ability. Each time you bolt, you draw

Basilisk Collar - This also works with the bolt ability. Turns the bolt into "Destroy target creature, gain 3 life"

Oblivion Ring - solid catch-all removal

Gratuitous Violence - Double the damage of your bolt ability and the damage of your creatures

Temur Sabertooth - If you have 12 lands, your commander, and this guy in play you get infinite mana, meaning you win the game.

Rampaging Baloths - one of the best landfall guys

Mina and Denn, Wildborn - Play extra lands, gives trample to creatures, and lets you return lands to activate landfall more

Darien, King of Kjeldor - just an awesome white bomb I ran across

Angel of Serenity - Kill everybody's commander, or temporarily remove any other threatening creature

Acidic Slime - solid removal that serves double duty

Harmonize - great green draw spell

Grow from the Ashes, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Nissa's Renewal, Peregrination, Untamed Wilds - all solid pieces of ramp. Your 2 CMC ramping elves are pretty slow and weak to removal/board wipes. Plus, using land ramp rather than creature ramp increases your commander's utility when it comes into play and makes getting that infinite mana combo easier. With infinite mana, you win the game if your commander is out and no one can remove it at instant speed.

Some of the weaker cards that I'd suggest removing: Akroan Hoplite, Polis Crusher, Relentless Raptor, Sylvan Primordial (this card is banned in EDH), Budoka Gardener, Quirion Elves, Skyshroud Elf, Sylvan Caryatid.

Benign on Trostani's Token Buddies

Excellent looking deck. I particularly like the theme of playing large creatures. Have you considered Darien, King of Kjeldor? He doesn't fit the theme but his synergy with Trostani seems too good to pass up. If you don't take lethal damage then you'll take the damage, make that many 1/1 soldiers, then heal back to what you were at before damage.
