Like it, but only problem with Desolation Twin is that you have to cast it to get the token.

Just a heads up, neither Planar Bridge nor Belbe's Portal will give you an Eldrazi's cast trigger if you want full value off of say Desolation Twin or Conduit of Ruin

joshl774 This deck is made against (huge) creatures. So lets say you play out Desolation Twin. In this case its ability won't trigger because of Torpor Orb plus Ovinomancer will destroy your Eldrazi and you create instead of this powerful thing a little Sheep. Now let's say, you have 4 of these creatures in the battlefield. For such a case I have Illusionist's Bracers to destroy all your creatures, with only one Ovinomancer. Then, if you lose your fatties, I cast Docent of Perfection  Flip or use the ability of Titan Forge, to finish the game in one or two turns if possible.

I tried to create an funny deck, which is not mainstream, not an unformat and very annoying against opponents. Could I answer your questions?

Have you considered using a card like From Beyond? the scions are 1/1's and you can sack it to find a Desolation Twin. Looks good, +1 and have fun!

Nice deck! Got a couple ideas, although you might already know about how good these cards are with Trostani...Storm Herd effectively doubles your life total and Desolation Twin makes one of the biggest tokens in magic. Happy gathering :)

Tolsimir Wolfblood will boost your dudes and also provide a free token, and Wilt-Leaf Liege will also boost your guys. Armada Wurm, Hornet Queen, Giant Adephage, and Desolation Twin will give you some powerful tokens to populate. You can feed a bunch of tokens to Mycoloth to get many more in return. Suture Priest can help gain you a ton of life off your tokens and punish your opponents for getting creatures out. Storm Herd and Devout Invocation are a little expensive mana-wise, but they can yield a massive number of tokens if you have enough life and creatures. Speaking of massive numbers of tokens, Second Harvest. I would also recommend Cultivate and Kodama's Reach for mana ramp, and I would replace Golden Hind with Llanowar Elves. Also, you can probably afford to run 36 lands instead of 38.

Sorry for the huge block of text and list of suggestions! Good luck with your deckbuilding!

KongMing on Trostani and the one hundred tokens.

Doubling Season will help you get the most of your Populate and other token generation effects. You should consider Desolation Twin; if Trostani is out you will gain 20 life from casting it, and an additional 10 if you populate the token. Wurmcalling is good for spamming mid-to-late game to spit Wurms onto the field if you want to hold on to cards.

Hornet Nest can help to fend off attacks. Intangible Virtue allows your tokens to swing and gives them a nice buff. Also, Sundering Growth is one option for instant-speed spot removal that also lets you populate.

What about some exterminating wincon like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Desolation Twin or Void Winnower?
You've got enough lands to have land drop even each turn
