Tokens

Devout Invocation

Sorcery

Tap any number of untapped creatures you control. Put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield for each creature tapped this way.

Token Generation to Get ETB Triggers

This is a great start. Here are some suggestions from a Trostani deck that I use, organized by pricing tiers to help keep this deck budget:

< $1

Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage
3/3 Tokens and another way to populate

Felidar Sovereign
Alternate Win Condition. Probably works better with Trostani as commander due to the increased life gain, but there's quite a bit of life gain in this deck regardless, so it may work.

Rampaging Baloths
Consistent way to get som big tokens on the battlefield for free. (Works well with Traverse the Outlands)

Emmara Tandris
Some token protection

Trostani's Summoner
Get a variety of tokens out quick

Advent of the Wurm
Just a decent token to populate later

Druid's Deliverance
Fog with populate. Optional, but not too bad

Cultivate
More mana!

White Sun's Zenith
Utilize that mana and go wide

Second Harvest
Speaking of going wide, mega populate

Increasing Devotion
Just get some dudes on the board

Phyrexian Rebirth
Board wipe with a token upside

Intangible Virtue
Go wide with a little extra damage, and still have some blockers left

Angelic Accord
Like your Resplendent Angel, but harder to remove, and only requires you to gain 4 life.

Tamiyo's Journal A slow tutor, but might draw you some cards if you can't get to the tutor

$1 - $5

Devout Invocation
Potentially double your board, with 4/4 fliers!

Storm Herd
Another mass token maker, but with 1/1 fliers (evasion is nice)

Aetherflux Reservoir
Alternate win condition. Probably better with Trostani as commander as you need to be able to absorb a loss of 50 life, but even in commander, most other people won't be able to say the same.

Beastmaster Ascension
Win condition. With a wide board, +5/+5 is huge. Also creatures enter the battlefield with the +5/+5, so with Trostani out that's some good extra life gain.

Sandwurm Convergence
Consistent way to get some decent tokens. Also protection from flying

Primal Command
Life gain, removal, mill protection, and tutor? This card just has value.

> $5

Panharmonicon
Again, designed for Trostani to double up on life gain, but helps with any ETB effects you have, of which there are a couple

Anointed Procession
Should be in any white token deck

Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Create creatures, get rid of big threats, maybe get your team in the air

Ezuri's Predation
Often a one-sided boardwipe, makes a ton ot tokens, and will sometime just win the game

Traverse the Outlands
Mana! This is only really good if you have a larger creature out, but like I said above, works really well with Rampaging Baloths

Test of Endurance
Basically another Felidar Sovereign, harder to remove, but requires 50 life instead of 40

Chord of Calling
Green tutor with convoke. You have a bunch of tokens, why not?

Green Sun's Zenith
Potentially reusable creature tutor. have to have the mana available, but it will find answers for you.

Bonus

Parallel Lives
Not exactly budget, but valuable in a token deck

Enlightened Tutor
Artifact and Enchantment Tutor. Again, not really budget, but likely worth it in your deck

Your deck has one common, incredibly large issue. What even is your theme?

I mean don't get me wrong I love your commanders, so I assumed you were gonna have a token sacrifice thing going on but... not from the looks of it? Most of your deck is composed of cards that have little or nothing to do with sacrifice, and you have barely any token producers so... is this just a really bad white/black aggro deck?

I count a total of 6 cards (excluding the commander) that make tokens. Two of them require gaining life to do so (Crested Sunmare and Resplendent Angel), one requires not being hit for four turns (Luminarch Ascension), one is wicked overcosted (Dawn of Hope), one requires having a ton of creatures and is also notably costly (Devout Invocation, and one is Elspeth, a great card. Also Secure the Wastes, that's okay.

You have FIVE sac outlets (once again, other than your commander). Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Viscera Seer, Culling the Weak, Ashnod's Altar, and Eldrazi Monument.

The odds of drawing a sac outlet in the opening hand: about 27%-28%

Odds of drawing a token producer in opening hand: about 31%

So I guess what I'm saying is, this deck needs focus. It needs to know what it is and stick with it. I see a lot of potential for being sweeet in this deck and I love aristocrats, so if you'd like further help I'd be happy to suggest cuts or adds or anything.

Until then, good luck and happy brewing!

Decree of Justice cycle it for solidiers and a card or use it to pay an army of angels. Devout Invocation makes an angel for each creature you want to tap. Entreat the Angels for when you need a miracle. Song of the Dryadsturn any pesky permanent into a land. Darksteel Mutation turns a pesky creature into an indestructible 0/1 with no text box. Eldrazi Monument and Bow of Nylea can make your tokens incredibly scary.

Decree of Justice cycle it for solidiers and a card or use it to pay an amy of angels. Devout Invocation make an angel for each creature you want to tap. Divine Visitation why make 1/1 when you can make 4/4 fliers. Entreat the Angels for when you need a miracle. Song of Freyalise turns all your creatures into mana dorks for two turns than kills atleast one player. Song of the Dryads turn any pesky permant into a land. Darksteel Mutation turns a pesky creature into an indestructible 0/1 with no text box.

Hey, your deck is a lot like mine, but more token focused. So for that I might suggest... Diversionary Tactics, Devout Invocation, Earthcraft, Glare of Subdual, Nullmage Shepherd, Presence of Gond, maybe Selesnya Evangel, Sprout Swarm, and Stonybrook Schoolmaster.
