Shliken Thx! Legendary god creatures are always awesome and this deck definitely could need some more ramp. Emmara Tandris is just in my side deck because most of my tokens usually don't die from normal combat damage :)

Have you considered Karametra, God of Harvests for both ramp as well as a pretty hefty chunk of lifegain when she ETBs? Also, Emmara Tandris is great for token decks! Good luck!

For a populate deck, the majority of your tokens are pretty small. Cards like Phyrexian Rebirth make big tokens which are better to populate.

Also, Emmara Tandris is bad, this should be an Avacyn, Angel of Hope instead.

Are you looking for suggestions? I personally love token decks and have several made. I have a green white token deck with Trostani as my commander. Some of the recommendations I would make would be Sigil Captain gives plus one to creatures that are 1/1, Emmara Tandris protects your tokens, Juniper Order Ranger also gives bonus to tokens and itself, True Conviction gives all creatures double-strike and lifelink. These are just some thoughts.

Thanks for commenting, everyone! Always good to have input.

The only reason I don't have Doubling Season in here is the price tag. I accept its absolute superiority over Primal Vigor, but I just don't want to add $60 to an already expensive deck. So Primal Vigor is a budget option for me.

S1ayerMonkey I do love Emmara Tandris, but I feel like she works better in Modern than EDH. I'm not super concerned with damage to my tokens because 90% of the time I'll be winning with so many tokens it won't matter if they take damage. I had her in an earlier version of this deck, but took her out in favor of some removal spells.

enpc How would you suggest I improve my ramp package? I'd be interested to know what suggestions you have.

This may not be the most popular suggestion, but I do recommend including Emmara Tandris if you're playing selesnya tokens. She would be a good candidate to equip your Lightning Greaves to.

Have you considered Grove of the Guardian as a land?

I'm thinking of making an Emmara Tandris EDH deck myself

I would definitely add Phyrexian Processor, it is great in this deck!

Cryptolith Rite is really good as well. I also feel like some draw is good, maybe Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

You won't want to be casting your commander a bunch of times over, so some protection like Lightning Greaves would be good. (It will also let you use the populate the turn you play her).

Fresh Meat seems pretty good if someone clears your board, because since the tokens technically entered the graveyard before being exiled, you can rebuild.

The new card Polyraptor seems crazy in this deck, because the tokens have the copy ability as well.

I would also recommend either more lands or more ramp like Selesnya Signet, Cultivate, or Harvest Season (My personal favorite for this type of deck).

Two words: Storm Herd. If you play this card, especially with you commander out, you pretty much win.

Devout Invocation lets you gain a LOT of life and get some creatures that can survive a hit.

Hour of Reckoning can be a board clear if someone gets out of control or just a finisher to attack without blockers.

I would probably add a single target removal like Swords to Plowshares or Beast Within as well.


Emmara Tandris is ok, but the mana cost is just too high to be an effective card.

Single creature buffs are generally ineffective in a go wide deck, so Unflinching Courage is not very good here.

Fated Intervention costs to much for what it does.

Healer of the Pride and Essence Warden don't do much but gain life, which generally isn't too good because they don't advance your board at all. You will have quite a lot of life from you commander if you do it right, so the additional lifegain doesn't do too much.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a good card, but his token generation is not very effective.
