Giant Adephage Discussion

Thanks for the advice multimedia. I agree that Rhys the Redeemed would be a very good Commander for this deck, but it is too expensive, and is my first planned upgrade card. However, I rather having Trostani, Selesnya's Voice as the Commander instead of Emmara, Soul of the Accord, as within the deck there are some bigger tokens as populate targets, such as Giant Adephage and Phyrexian Processor. I also plan on using Helm of the Host as a way of making some of the other creatures in the deck tokens, like the Archangel of Thune or Crested Sunmare, or even Trostani herself, and I think that these interactions tie in better with the life gain and populate effects of Trostani. I’m also thinking of adding Bramble Sovereign for more of these effects

Good spot, I had the wrong land in there. It was meant to be Memorial to Unity. I had Worldspine Wurm in there to begin with but I didn't really feel it added much to the deck and in most games, my Allosaurus Rider is easier to cast and is bigger. Hydra Broodmaster is a fantastic late game mana sink and has won me games when people don't have an answer to it the turn it drops.
Giant Adephage is an interesting choice, I'll try out a copy in the deck.

Wow, your list is pretty much beat-for-beat how I would like to run a Trostani deck! So as far as adds go, there aren't any that immediately come to mind aside from maybe Test of Endurance, Oracle of Mul Daya, Swiftfoot Boots, and Lightning Greaves. Especially the last two since you have so many cards that require attacking (Myraid cards, Wingmate Roc, Giant Adephage, Wayfaring Temple, Sun Titan) and cards that require tapping to activate (Trostani, Rhys & Oviya). Not to mention you don't want a massive token just sitting around without protection; swing with it right away AND give it hexproof/shroud!
Cuts, on the other hand, I have a couple of suggestions for. Since your deck (and Trostani decks in general) are much better at going tall than going wide, I'd probably recommend cutting some of the "go-wide" cards. Essence Warden, Soul Warden, and Soul's Attendant are good low drops and good at gaining life but aside from cards like Storm Herd I don't see us gaining a lot of life in this deck from these cards. If they're mostly in here because of the low mana cost I'd recommend the cheap mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves instead to help you reach your big cards quicker.
Voracious Wurm seems kind of "win-more" since you need to have gained a considerable amount of life (probably from playing a big token already) before you want to play it. However it is only 2 mana so it probably wouldn't hurt to keep it in.
Celestial Convergence has always been removed before the last counter is taken off in every game I've played.
Cradle of Vitality is kind of like Voracious Wurm in regards to how you're only getting value from the card if you've already played something big. Could be worth it, but if you have a 10/10 on the board, would a 20/20 help you that much more?
Wingmate Roc doesn't seem like it's impactful enough for the mana cost.
Hopefully some of these help! In short I think since your curve is pretty high you should work on either reducing some of the higher CMC cards (but a lot of those are your win conditions or good token generators, so maybe not) or increasing the amounts of ramp in the deck. Good luck! Digging it so far.

Hey there, I really like Rapacious One in my Xenagos deck, curves out of Xenagos, and sets you up to cast the real big stuff/multiple threats ( Worldspine, Giant Adephage, Balefire Dragon) after the table realises your going to kill them all.
I found that as my playgroup got used to getting hit for 30+ damage they began to lean heavily on wraths to try and stem the flow, so I began to shift to annoying, value beaters and recursion. Genesis regrows a creature at the low cost of 3 mana every turn, Vorapede is a fine beatstick without Xenagos, Feldon of the Third Path is an excellent way to get value out of your graveyard, too. Deadwood Treefolk was also surprisingly good, though it’s maybe outclassed by Greenwarden of Murasa, it still mashes in for 6 w/‘Gos out and blocks well. Eternal Witness is another option.
And Atarka, World Render, the “you take 24” cannon that gets better if you throw even a few extra dragons in ( Scourge of the Throne, Balefire, Dragon Broodmother produces a steady stream of chumps so you can swing freely each turn.

No worries, it's actually quite interesting to watch your deck evolve since I only played netdecks when I first started so I didn't go through the same type of deckbuilding. And the creatures, equipment, and tokens strategies you're aiming for are ones that I love as well.
