I would definitely add these cards: Phyrexian Processor , Phyrexian Rebirth , Slime Molding (better than it looks since paying 11 mana will give you a 3 mana 10/10 each turn after), Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage (populate mana-sink late game), Parallel Evolution , Illusionist's Bracers (populate twice, for the same price!), Acidic Slime (just an awesome green staple), Sakura-Tribe Elder , Phantom General , Angel of Sanctions (INFINITE REMOVAL EACH TURN!), Beast Within (staple removal in green), Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life (mana acc and lategame big tokens in one)

I would consider these also: Worldspine Wurm , Parallel Lives (awesome, but a bit $$$), Rootborn Defenses (stops a board-wipe and pops), Trostani's Judgment (high cmc, but good value), Overrun (probably wins you the game if you have a few creatures out), Hydra Broodmaster , Austere Command (wipes opponents' boards, but a bit $$$), Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth Tirel (both Elspeths have great board wipes for token decks), Oblivion Ring , Yavimaya Elder , Ajani Goldmane / Ajani, Caller of the Pride (both have great synergy with big lifegains), Baloth Cage Trap (P.S you can play this and populate as combat trick!), Beast Attack (the flashback makes this a good comeback-card in case of board wipe and you need to get the pop-engine going), Blade Splicer (very powerful early-mid game)

I would 100% cut these cards: Take Heart , Centaur Healer , Healer's Hawk , Parhelion Patrol , Candlelight Vigil , Conviction , Noble Purpose , Flight of Equenauts , Siege Wurm , Bounty of Might (no trample=hard to use)

I would also consider cutting these: Lone Rider  Flip, Sumala Woodshaper , Sunscorch Regent , Verdant Eidolon , Scatter the Seeds , Wake the Reflections , Ajani Unyielding

Hey, looks good, but consider more ramp? Is this a budget deck? The total deck cost and the manabase tell me that it is, but the maybeboard and a few cards in the main looks like it isn't. Do you have the cards that are in the maybeboard?

Budget cards ($6 or less) to consider adding:

The avg. CMC here is 4.5 which is very high many of these card suggestions/cuts will help to reduce this number.

Cards to consider cutting:

Anthem effects that only pump power/toughness are not doing much when the creatures are already big.

  • Wilt-Leaf Liege
  • Collective Blessing
  • Intangible Virtue
  • Tolsimir Wolfblood
  • Primal Vigor: Lives and Procession are better and don't help your opponents.
  • Desolation Twin: too much mana.
  • Verdant Sun's Avatar: not good enough for seven mana.
  • Kazandu Tuskcaller: too slow.
  • Trostani's Judgment: six mana removal spell for one creature is not worth it even if there's tokens to populate.
  • Emmara Tandris: this effect is not worth seven mana.
  • Nomads' Assembly
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor: 3/3 for six mana who might give you tokens later on is not worth it.
  • Phyrexian Rebirth: Command and Reckoning are better high mana cost board wipes.

Good luck with your deck.

Alright, so gaining a ridiculous amount of life is cool and all, but I think you need more to do with it. For instance, things like Phyrexian Processor , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Toxic Deluge , and Hatred . I see you have Aetherflux Reservoir , so with all that you could also add in Tainted Sigil and gain back everything you and others lost.

And on another note, dont forget about Exsanguinate .

Sorry I can't help on the what to remove... terrible at that. But hope I've helped in some small way at least.

32 lands are not OK for a 4.01 average CMC deck with only 6 mana accelerants. I would suggest upping to 36 or 37 lands (Caves of Koilos, Tainted Field, Bojuka Bog, Shambling Vent, Orzhov Guildgate), getting some ramp with Orzhov Signet, Commander's Sphere, Pristine Talisman. I would remove win-more or non-synergistic cards, like Celestial Mantle and Phyrexian Processor. // Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End and Merciless Eviction are the best removal in the format, and should be in every Orzhov deck.

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

Hey, the 13+ cards to consider cutting:

  • Camaraderie
  • Collective Blessing
  • True Conviction
  • Hornet Queen
  • Trostani's Summoner
  • Bow of Nylea
  • Loxodon Warhammer
  • Fracturing Gust
  • Druid's Deliverance
  • Dawn of Hope
  • Boon Reflection
  • Increasing Devotion
  • Intangible Virtue
  • Martial Coup
  • Panharmonicon
  • March of the Multitudes
  • Trostani Discordant
  • Sigarda, Host of Herons
  • Growing Rites of Itlimoc
  • Cryptolith Rite

In my opinion I think big 3/3-5/5+ tokens are better with Trostani than little 1/1 tokens especially since there's a life gaining theme here. Consider cutting the little token strategy and anthems that help little tokens? You don't need the five and six drop anthems with big tokens/creatures instead play more big creatures who have more interaction with Trostani. Anthems that aren't creatures are less good with Trostani, anthems that are creatures (Thunderfoot, Stonehoof, Elesh, etc.) at least gain you life when they ETB, they are more valuable.

The other high mana cost creatures I suggest playing are ones that make big tokens when they ETB, when they die or can be a repeatable source of big token creation (Armada, Wurmcoil, Baloths, Thragtusk, Processor, Convergence, etc.). Processor is especially nasty with Trostani; making a huge token every turn, gaining a lot of life and populating the huge token. Consider more ramp to make it easier to cast big creatures, more impactful big creatures and draw that has interaction with big tokens/creatures?

Cards to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

I agree that you should definitely be considering Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Spawning Pit, and Noosegraf Mob as additional token producers. You could also consider Mimic Vat, Golden Guardian  Flip, and Phyrexian Processor.

The fact that you don't have Skullclamp in here is a bit surprising. It is generally the best card in any token deck (and I am not speaking in hyperbole here).
