Parallel Evolution Discussion

This looks like a really good first draft! There are a few suggestions I'd like to make.

First, I'm not sure if Riku is the best commander for this deck. He'll make tokens for all of your creatures, but none of those tokens will get to transform. That having been said, you do have a few cards, like Parallel Evolution and Parallel Lives that play well with him. But I think removing the token theme altogether will give you a more streamlined deck. Although you should always run Rite of Replication, imo. In the spirit of keeping with your Blue/Green/Red colors, I'd recommend Surrak Dragonclaw. It's most likely you'll want to win games by getting in with creature damage, and giving everything Trample is a great way to make sure you'll be able to connect your swings. Protecting your creatures from counterspells is a nice little bonus.

I also think you're running too many lands. You should probably only have between 38-42. If you're worried about mana problems, run a few ramp spells, like Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation.

Werewolves are a small tribe, and don't get as much love as other tribes, but there are a few cards that you could add still. Lambholt Elder  Flip, Afflicted Deserter  Flip, Scorned Villager  Flip, Wolfbitten Captive  Flip, and Kessig Forgemaster  Flip would all make welcome (not to mention inexpensive) additions. Since you're running Blue, you could also justify putting in a few more clone creatures like Altered Ego. Check out Phantasmal Image, Quicksilver Gargantuan, and, of course, Clone. There are a number of these kinds of creatures you could include if you're willing to look into them. The best part? If they enter as a copy of a transformed werewolf, if something would cause them to flip back to human, they remain in wolf form instead! Also, consider Alpha Brawl. It's very on theme, and, more importantly, it's really funny.

I'd also recommend adding some answers to your opponent's threats to your deck. You have a couple of ways of dealing with creatures, but against artifacts, token armies, and decks that rely on fliers, you might have a hard time. Check out Ancient Grudge, Vandalblast, Beast Within, Cyclonic Rift, and Blasphemous Act as potential answers, or consider other options you might have.

Also, this is just a footnote, but I'm not quite sure what Bonus Round does for your deck? It only interacts with seven other cards in your current decklist, and of those, only three are really worth spending the extra mana on. I think it's an easy cut.

hahah dude this is fun! I love janky decks, all my commanders are that way. Maybe Consider Parallel Evolution? But that makes your deck illegal in modern.. Why oh why must populate be "creature tokens you control?" haha

I'm sure you know the cards, but you could throw in Soul Warden, Essence Warden or Soul's Attendant.. maybe Blood Reckoning rather than Ghostly Prison! That way they will be tempted to take the pings as well.. pair that with a "creatures target player controls must attack" effect and By the time they declare attackers, they'll be dead!

I'd suggest Ashnod's Altar for a more permanent sack outlet and essentially making your commander ability cost 2 instead of 4 and combined with Doubling Season or Parallel Lives you can easily go infinite tokens-->double sack-->+4 mana-->double tokens etc and OTK people with blood artist and such, but that option is quite expensive.

Beastmaster Ascension is a very nice finisher in token decks, or (if you have it) Craterhoof Behemoth is more powerful, albeit MUCH more expensive. For extra tokens I remember some old cards like Saproling Symbiosis and Parallel Evolution but the first one's price nearly tripled due to Dominaria so I'd wait a bit until things cool off.

Cheers!

Here's a list of what I could find.

MRDOOM3 on Trostani's Token Delight

Any Embalm card, especially like Angel of Sanctions and Anointer Priest, works really, really well in a Trostani deck.

I assume you left out cards like Craterhoof Behemoth, Mirari's Wake, Aura Shards, etc. for budgetary (is that even a word?) reasons.

Seance is just a really nice way to abuse Trostani's populate ability, especially after mass removal like Supreme Verdict. Sadly, it won't help with Cyclonic Rift.

Part of me is surprised to not see Phyrexian Processor in here. Believe me when I say that it can get utterly ridiculous in a Trostani deck, because it definitely will.

Second Harvest and Parallel Evolution- Just more token doublers.

If you really want, you can put in Life and Limb for a lovely little infinite combo with Sporemound.

Panharmonicon is another nice way to double lifegain, along with Alhammarret's Archive and Rhox Faithmender.

Giant Adephage, along with Wingmate Roc, are more cards that you can consider.

if you want a haste effect like fervor i'd recommend Anger since it's easy to get to access in a deck like this and harder to remove unless you know your meta has grave hate, everyone automatically runs any enchantment or artifact removal since they expect it.

I'd recommend looking into Parallel Evolution, and Second Harvest. parallel evolution has the downside of working for everyone's tokens but hopeully with a impact tremors or purphoros out your gf shouldn't care. Also, agreeing with what the other guy said, more mana rocks. And for ramp in general Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are staples in any deck with green. Also, you have zulaport cutthroat but no Blood Artist. Consistency is rare in a singleton format so i would take it when you can get it.

one last card recommend, since with a lot of mana and doubling season out it's insane. look into Spawning Pit, and if you wanna produce a lot of mana, Ashnod's Altar will get you tons of mana quick.

okay, i've written a lot so far, so sorry for that! Aside from cutting a few lands i'd also say cutting cruel reality might be a good cut, it doesn't do much for your deck as it is and at the point where you'd wanna cast it you'd probably rather be casting something else. There's so many other cards i can think of but this post is getting long as is, best of luck!
