Desolation Twin Discussion
3 days ago
Since Nikya is your commander, you can play 12 mana creatures the turn after he comes out, and that's impressive. Here's a few budget options. Ancient Stone Idol , Darksteel Colossus , Desolation Twin , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Artisan of Kozilek , Ulamog's Crusher , It That Betrays , Primeval Protector . Some other fun cards are hydras like Heroes' Bane , Polukranos, World Eater , and Primordial Hydra .

I LOVE IT! Absolutely love it! The only changes I would suggest are the following:
Take out Rakdos's Return , sure it is a good mana sink but I feel either one of the mana rocks from above would be better placed, or maybe even Showstopper to finish the game out when a board wipe happens.
Have no clue to what you could take out for one of these bad boys, but I would suggest adding in something that could end the game like Artisan of Kozilek , Colossus of Akros , Void Winnower , Desolation Twin , or Ancient Stone Idol . All of these may not be Rakdos theme, but they are great ways to end a game through damage. They could be the "Center Pieces" of the show.

zdtsd Actually, I have tons of ways to make my creatures into tokens. Helm of the Host, Mimic Vat, Mirrorpool, Blade of Selves, Seance, and God-Pharaoh's Gift have been enough for me, and I just picked up Bramble Sovereign.
I used to have Desolation Twin, but I found that it was just too much mana, even for the sweet token. Also, making a token copy of it wouldn't allow me to get 2 per populate, because it's trigger is on cast, not when it enters the battlefield.
Also, in this deck, Advent of the Wurm would be a small token, not a big one.
Polyraptor sounds cool for the deck, even if the token is a bit small. I'll play around to see if it fits well.
Thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it! Sorry I didn't respond earlier; I kinda forgot I had put my deck up here.

The first three are just big fatties that are outclasses by the big daddy Eldrazi, and the fourth is just poor. Hope this helps!

Well, do you like 10/10 creatures? If so, Desolation Twin makes a nice token, and if you can make a token copy of the actual twin, each token copy comes with its 10/10 friend!
Also, I noticed that other than Seance, you have no way of making cards like Serra Avatar possible to Populate. Populate can only copy creature tokens, so Serra Avatar cannot be copied. If you want to go this route of making a ton of tokens of the same creature, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer is probably a better commander: most clones are blue. If you want to stay of Trostani, you should probably try to focus on finding bigger tokens, like Advent of the Wurm, because they let you get great value out populating. In addition, consider cards such as Dawn of Hope; don't forget that triggered ability on your commander, it is probably better than the populate one!

What are your wincons? No offense, but it looks like this deck was thrown together randomly. It seems like you have too many counterspells, so getting rid of those for a Solemn Simulacrum, Gilded Lotus, Wayfarer's Bauble, Walking Atlas Expedition Map, Sol Ring, Sky Diamond, Eye of Ramos, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Coldsteel Heart, and other artifact ramp cards could be useful. You might need to ditch some islands for ramp, so only get rid of a few. If you put in that much ramp, you could use your commander's ability to draw everyone cards as an excuse for no one to target you, draw a ton of cards, (Spellbook and Thought Vessel will keep you from discarding) then cast an eldrazi titan Emrakul, the Promised End, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Void Winnower, Desolation Twin, or some others of your choice. Other good creatures include Darksteel Colossus and Blightsteel Colossus. You don't have to run all of them but the more you run the more consistent your deck is. You could also put in infinite mana combos such as Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith (the combo can be confusing check out Infinite Colorless Mana Turn 1 for an explanation) or Isochron Scepter imprinted with Dramatic Reversal + any combinations of mana rocks that produce a total of 3 mana.

Thank you for your comments, I updated most my deck to fit this, though I do think that I disagree on some parts. I really do need to make a sideboard, and that will be my main focus right now, and I also think all the cards such as Desolation Twin, and Brave the Sands just wouldn't fit right. I think I really do need some drawing cards like kamarupa says, but I don't really know how to fit it in. I also need more help with my mana curve, which is looking a little weird, how should I fix that without hurting my deck?
