I think (Don't quote me) that a 2:1 ratio between Tokens producers and token Enhancers is a good starting point.

Here are some suggestions to up the number of stand alone token production that you should consider:

Secure the Wastes - It's and instant!

Tendershoot Dryad - Tokens EVERY upkeep

Martial Coup - Board wipe with upside, sometimes.

Hooded Hydra - Flexible

Arachnogenesis - A personal pet card, no one see's it coming. Kinda stand alone, requires you to be attacked

Imperious Perfect - Low drop with a very nicely costed ability

Wolfbriar Elemental - Pretty underestimated

Verdant Force - very high costed, but another every upkeep effect

Ant Queen - pretty bad creature, but an abusable, cheap mana sink

Trostani Discordant - Homeward path on a stick that pumps and makes tokens

Jade Mage - Meh, but its an early token producer if you need it. Late game it can be abused too.

You are severely lack card draw and there are a few abusable cards for tokens:

Collective Unconscious

Shamanic Revelation

Slate of Ancestry

Skullmulcher

Regal Force

Be careful with how many of these you put in since they rely on your board.

There are safer ramp options, in my opinion, in green:

Farseek - Can take the place of Selesnya Signet

Nature's Lore - Can replace Talisman of Unity

Kodama's Reach - Can Replace Commander's Sphere I say replace, but you can always up your ramp suite by a couple cards instead.

lagotriphaSorry not Spectral Procession I was thinking of Midnight Haunting . A few options that might be better suited for this deck would be:

  • Oath of Gideon . 2-fold value, tokens + loyalty counters.
  • Raise the Alarm . 2 cmc, instant speed.
  • Martial Coup . Doubles as a board wipe for 7, but 7 is pretty high for Modern. Thought about this card a lot, but I wanted to be stronger against fast decks since most of Modern is fast.
  • Secure the Wastes always able to maximize value if needed, at instant speed.

Land Tax -> Martial Coup

Path to Exile -> Armageddon

I needed both of these for other decks, but more tokens and some MLD will help here

May be a matter of perception or comfort level, but I think your early stage ramp is fine without those cards. You're likely to hit turn-four Karametra pretty consistently, and she's ramp on a stick (and hard to remove). Personally, I'd be more concerned about not hitting your fatties / token generators turns 5-8. (speaking of which, highly recommend making room for Eladamri's Call )

As for a high CMC card to cut, I'd prob go with Sandwurm Convergence ; it's a fun card, but it's a little win-more and your slowest token generator by far.

Last thought - acknowledging it would mean a lot of changes - did you consider the white mass token sorceries? Nomads' Assembly is a potential 2-turn win-con with Epic Struggle, and Martial Coup doubles as a board wipe. Just a thought.

I don't like Phyrexian Rebirth , Martial Coup , Bant Charm , and honestly most of your creature base. Shalai, Voice of Plenty Nylea's Colossus Archetype of Courage Loyal Guardian Celestial Ancient and Yavimaya Enchantress seem pretty bad in particular. I dont understand the +1/+1 theme you have here, you only have 20 creatures.

I would add Crush Contraband and or Return to Dust . Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares are also no brainers. Three Dreams is another solid one, it can search for pumps like Eldrazi Conscription and even pseudo-removal like Control Magic or Faith's Fetters

Swords to Plowshares is the best option for white decks. But for more universal removal, Beast Within or Banishing Stroke do nicely. For board wipes, I'd consider Phyrexian Rebirth , Martial Coup , and Fumigate . They'll give you a board presence or life. Some spicy options are Retribution of the Meek or Tragic Arrogance .
