I feel between wolf run Mirror Entity,Elder of Laurels and others I got a pretty good set of that already.

And it's not that the the card is not good I just wouldn't be willing to take anything out for it.

And while burst is very I feel that the leaving play clause makes it 2 unreliable

A solid base for a more casual EDH deck. For landfall triggers I would highly recommend Avenger of Zendikar.

Another option to get more landfall triggers in a turn would be to play with Courser of Kruphix or Oracle of Mul Daya, with you searching your deck basicly every turn I can see you getting a lot of value out of those two cards.

I would also recommend you add some more mana dumps into your deck so you can use all of that left over mana. Cards such as: Elder of Laurels, Heliod, God of the Sun, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage.

@bushido_man96 I recommend cutting vampire nighthawk and scuttling doom engine. Vampire nighthawk while hes a nice creature overall he doesn't offer anything unique to the deck just a decent blocker at worst and a source of lifegain at best. Scuttling Doom engine is a kind of crappy card that in almost every situation I would just rather have Wurmcoil Engine it costs a lot more cash for one but compared to it doom engine is pretty bad. Temur Sabertooth is kind of meh as well I'd rather replace him with something like Elder of Laurels or an equipment that can boost glisas general power to force blocks or risk dying to commander damage. Also something like Deadbridge Chant might be useful for your kind of deck where it can pick up things your commander can't while providing immediate use for any artifacts it dropped into your grave and picking up anything that isn't an artifact.

Some suggestions for getting out equipments and such to beat face faster: Stonehewer Giant, budget options with Stoneforge Acolyte since Tarl's an Allly or Steelshaper Apprentice.

Appeal might be fun, and Eldrazi Monument would make Tana indestructible. Beast Within gives you removal for anything really gross. Dogpile would give you the double-tap after a swing to kill a separate player. Elder of Laurels is neat-o as well.

Looks neat JBert!

Like many green decks I see, this one has the problem of being pulled in too many different directions. Cards like Garruk's Companion, Rancor, and Leatherback Baloth hint at a very aggressive stompy strategy. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Essence Warden and the Wild Beastmaster + Elder of Laurels combo would be better in a dedicated go-wide token deck. Llanowar Elves, Wild Growth, Primeval Titan, and Elderscale Wurm fit better in pure ramp. I would dedicate more resources to a single one of these strategies, maybe having a second as support. This will improve synergy and consistency by lessening the chance of drawing cards that don't work optimally together. For example, if you have some 7 drop bombs in hand, you'd much rather draw Wild Growth than Boar Umbra, and the reverse would be true if you had a hand of cheap beaters.

Some cards I'd recommend for stompy are Steel Leaf Champion, Dryad Militant, Experiment One, and Strangleroot Geist. Some cards for tokens are Parallel Lives, Mycoloth, Centaur's Herald, and Call the Scions. Cards for ramp include Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr, Garruk Wildspeaker, and Genesis Wave. And since you're mono, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will almost always be great.

If you are getting a ton of mana, you might want some good ways to just dump mana out, like Hydra Broodmaster and Elder of Laurels. Not sure if your commander is really ETB heavy so much as "cast a creature" heavy, might not get the most out of Panharmonicon, but that being said Eerie Interlude can be a great way to protect your field and also get some extra etb. Lurking Predators is great.

TheVectornaut on Trostani, G/W Tokens v2

If you set your deck's format to commander in the editor, it should bring up a box to put your commander in. This will also make it easier for people to identify the format of the deck when scrolling through a list.

I guess you really like Ajani, huh? The token creators are good, but Ajani, Mentor of Heroes seems to fall into the same trap as a lot of cards in this deck. You have a lot of ways to gain life but a small number of ways to take advantage of that life. In a format like standard or modern, just gaining a ton of life can be good because those formats often involve limited resources. But in commander, resources can sometimes be limitless. This means that gaining tens or even hundreds of life can be undone by the ever increasing damage output of many commander decks. Therefore, it's best if you have cards that can capitalize on the life in other ways like Felidar Sovereign and Aetherflux Reservoir. I played Trostani for a long time and lost many games because my padded life total only delayed the inevitable. Although, because I wanted to focus more on populate than gaining life, I ended up switching to Rhys the Redeemed instead.

You might also benefit from paring away cards that don't synergize in some way with the core of the deck. Strong standalone cards like Platinum Angel are fine, but cards like Gerrard's Command and Vinelasher Kudzu could just as easily be Elder of Laurels and Angelic Accord. The whole umbra package feels out of place too. Anyway, good luck with your build.

Perhaps Skarrg Goliath for commander damage win out of no where? Maybe even Ghor-Clan Rampager. I really do like the synergy Bloodrush brings to the table in this deck, getting around Ruric Thar's ability and all.

Recommending Primordial Sage because you can't get enough card draw. Also consider Hua Tuo, Honored Physician for pretty consistent recursion. Skullwinder is good too. Bloodmark Mentor helps keep RT alive in combat. Boartusk Liege and Instigator Gang  Flip if you're looking for more anthems. Khenra Charioteer if you need more trample enablers.

I would replace Goblin War Drums with Champion of Lambholt asap. It's pretty necessary if you want your creatures to be evasive. Elder of Laurels is great for pumping, gets crazy in the late game.
