Leyline of the Meek Discussion

I've played a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice EDH deck and the strength of populate usually comes from big beefy token generators. 1/1 bird tokens with flying are great for the evasion, but you'll probably get more value and be more threatening with cards like Advent of the Wurm and Armada Wurm and Desolation Twin .
Hope this helps!

I'd play Raise the Alarm and Gather the Townsfolk over Spiritual Visit and Midnight Haunting (unless you want to go all-in on the spirit token theme, which is respectable). This type of go-wide tokens deck wants to play cards that make the highest number of tokens for the most efficient cost, kind of like how Burn wants to play cards that deal the most damage for the lowest cmc. Spiritual Visit only makes one token per spell (unless you have another in hand) and Midnight Haunting doesn't make enough tokens for its mana cost, so Raise the Alarm and Gather the Townsfolk beat them out in that regard.
Other than that, I definitely suggest you make room for Triplicate Spirits , which is a very good card in mono w tokens. You could also try out Leyline of the Meek , which has the potential to make all of your tokens 2/2s right at the start. Legion's Landing Flip is another great one, as it can function as ramp, an early-game body, and fuel for the late game.

Why is Leyline of the Meek a "maybe"? It adds absolutely nothing to this deck.

Hey man! Nice deck. I have a few suggestions.
My first one is try not to have as many 1-ofs as you have now. For a deck to be competive in Modern, you have to have as many 4-ofs and 3-ofs as possible, maximising the chances of you seeing it every game.
My second is to do one of two things:
Or try to reduce your mana curve (ie. having a lower number of high CMC cards lowers your curve)
This is so your deck can be fast enough to compete at a Modern level. Personally, I would go for the latter option as it would make the deck more consistent.
Try to have more consistent token producers. Right now, you have 13 token producers, 7 of which are consistent, 7 of which also help with a token deck’s main strategy (to make a lot of tokens and pump them up). I know it’s hard, but try to find cards that either do both or do one very well (Leyline of the Meek, Venerated Loxodon and Saproling Migration come to mind).
Finally, I have the current Modern deck that I’m running you might want to check out:

Good Luck and I hope this helps,

All of the Leylines are great if you can bank on laying them Turn 1. Unfortunately this means one is generally left in the position of needing to "mulligan down" until getting one, resulting in the need to run 3 or 4 copies. All of the Leylines are remarkably underpowered for their mana costs, with each having much cheaper mana costs and better options for any turn other than #1 (like Intangible Virtue vs. Leyline of the Meek, making their only real advantage being the freebie Turn 1 drop. Unless I'm running a specific combo off of them and have room for 4 copies, I generally leave Leylines out of my decks.

If you want to play fair play death and taxes or Eldrazi and Taxes.
Just kidding bud.
My issue with your build is there is alot of utility cards but maybe not enough token generation or buffage to go around. I might suggest Gather the Townsfolk Leyline of the Meek Honor of the Pure Sram's Expertise Doomed Traveler as cards you can consider.

- I definitely think Intangible Virtue would be a good fit at least, possibly even over Leyline of the Meek since you've only got one copy in there anyway.
- The other suggestions may or may not work for you on mana costs for their yield depending on how the deck plays, but I think beefing up the tokens even before they all become dragons (at which point they're still tokens too obviously) is a solid move.
