As a fellow Trostani lover, I can definitely agree with that statement. Unfortunately for me, my opponents always seem to have a boardwipe at hand...
Anyways... to my suggestions.
Ajani Goldmane can get freaking ridiculous in Trostani EDH. I remember one game where I got to 5480 life just by repeatedly populating Ajani avatars. (Unfortunately, I still lost because Commander damage is a bitch).
Crested Sunmare makes for a decent consistent indestructible token generator.
Bramble Sovereign can be nice as well, I haven't tested it out ingame yet.
Like you said: Trostani EDH makes opponents wish for a nuclear winter. You NEED more protection for your tokens. Heroic Intervention and Avacyn, Angel of Hope can work well for that. Teferi's Protection can work against Merciless Eviction or Mutilate.

So first, Welcome to modern buddy :D
So I don't know what your budget is, but I since you have fetch lands and other pricey stuff, it isn't to cheap. If it is though let me know I will get you some cheaper stuff.
So first think i notice is glimmer, there are so so so many better draw spells in modern, for instance, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Serum Visions, Deep Analysis and many others. Those I could just name off the top of my head.
Next up is your grasp of darkness, While I am a huge fan of this card back when ogw was legal in standard, there are certain kill spells that work better. Dismember is better in that if you need it in a 1 mana pinch, 4 life and 1 mana. If you wanted more boardwipe kinda stuff, i find Mutilate rather good. Then there is always the good old Damnation and single targets like Go for the Throat and Cast Down
I would also do Gatekeeper of Malakir for your chupacabra. While you cant target it, you will find in modern lower cmc is probably better. Also, it will get around your hexproof and indestructible creatures.
And I would strongly recommend to dump your scarab gods. I know coming out of standard you probably think he is the best thing since Ancestral Recall. But it is way way to slow for modern. If you want high mana cmc threat, Phyrexian Obliterator will keep your opponent on his toes without proper answers. Desecration Demon is gonna hit hard either on their board or their life total. Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Since you have a good amount of devotion, this will probably hit for 5-6 every time you cast him. and it only becomes more dangerous as the game progresses when you flood the board with creatures. And although it is really high mana and you probably wont cast it effectively, Sheoldred, Whispering One is practically game ending if you use her right. Although good luck casting a 7 cmc creature without tron lands
While I could give you 100 suggestions of cards, it all relies on you and what you decide. Modern is a very diverse format and has plenty of cards in it to suit anyones needs and wants towards the perfect deck they want. So all i can really say is just experiment with cards. Use different versions, test new themes, all the good stuff. Just remember to always have fun :3

Mutilate could be a good stand in for damnation. If you just search up "good tribal cards" on google and have a look at some forums you'll find heaps of cards to pump your rats.

This looks like fun! We have some suggestions on how to improve this deck, but we're not entirely sure what your budget is, so we'll keep ourselves to some low-budget suggestions for now (let us know if you'd like us to elaborate on more expensive stuff too):
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury seems like a really nice card considering your overall strategy; especially if you can find ways to reuse his ETB trigger.
- Harvester of Souls is an exceptionally strong draw engine in a deck like yours.
- Royal Assassin is an exceptional engine of death; makes everyone think twice about tapping their creatures.
- Avatar of Woe/Visara the Dreadful are both very strong, assassin-like creatures, that would do well in your deck, though they are expensive to cast (in some cases).
We were a bit surprised to see you're playing a mono-black kill/sac deck, but without any of the incredible instant-kill power on offer for such a deck. Some examples we would definitely add would be:
And as a side note, we would also recommend Dark Ritual, because it's just awesome ramp.
- Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are absolutely awesome kill spells. Now imagine you cast these while you have Grave Betrayal on the field; everything you kill instantly becomes yours :)
- Buried Alive is by far the best tutor you could wish for in this deck; especially with Sheoldred on the field.
- Victimize is wonderful, considering whatever you sacrificed can be retrieved with Sheoldred.
- Rise from the Grave is awesome considering your overall strategy.
- Animate Dead/Dance of the Dead are great cards, cheap to cast, and can target whatever graveyard you wish to get some creatures from.
- Black Market makes a lot of sense in a deck that focuses on killing the way this deck does.
- Underworld Connections is a card we always recommend when it comes to mono-black, because draw is important.
Well that's it for now. We hope these suggestions are of use to you. Please let us know if they're not. Good luck with the deck.
With kind regards,
Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Whip of Erebos is very important in this format, often because combos are less prevalent, and often you will be killed through having your life reduced to 0. Lifelink is powerful in $50 budget commander league. Also, it's an artifact so can avoid removal, plus it allows me to recur creatures like Fleshbag Marauder/Slum Reaper/Merciless Executioner/etc that I can't recur, to trigger my Glissa, the Traitor ability to return my artifacts. Sangromancer to can gain quite a bit of life in an Barter in Blood/Mutilate/Etc type situation.
I did opt-in things like Golgari Cluestone/Horizon Spellbomb/Etc because of draw or LTB triggers as well (on stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring for example. I thought I needed more tutors Razaketh's Rite/Diabolic Tutor but you might be right where I need more ramp now. I'll try and get some reps in, I have 4 $50 commanders now, so i usually randomly choose, but I can select, last season, and this season Glissa, the Traitor runs a 33% win ratio (in 4-player pods), so it is fairly consistent.

I tried to keep my suggestions budget friendly. Welcome to EDH, its a ton of fun brewing and building in this format. Have fun with it!
