If you use Pharika's Ability often, I'd suggest Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, and Primal Vigor.

I'm liking the overall theme here, but question. Wouldn't Prossh, Skyraider of Kher be a better commander here? The extra tokens definitely generate some extra value for him to kill with commander damage, not to mention he creates token to help you with your devour theme.

Also, some devour creatures I think you should consider:

Thorn-Thrash Viashino - The fact that he can give himself trample makes him EXTREMELY relevant

Marrow Chomper - can help keep you in the game. Having a crap ton of creatures, but only one life, doesn't give you much of a benefit.

Thromok the Insatiable - If you are going with a devour theme, he is a must. This guy can gain INCREDIBLE power with the token theme you have.

Voracious Dragon - Definitely much better if you were to play Krenko, Mob Boss, but either way another flyer that can potentially deal some damage as well since you do play goblin token generators.

Token Generators I think you should consider.

Krenko, Mob Boss - Can win the game by himself, but for token generation this guy is insane.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - He only hits opponents, but he also helps HOSE graveyard strategies. Not to mention, can beef himself up if need be.

Grave Titan - I think this guy is pretty powerful by himself, but then he can also start generating some major advantage.

From Beyond - Another Awakening Zone

Hooded Hydra - possibility since you can easily sacrifice him.

Benefits from Sacrificing

Fecundity - It can help opponents, but I feel like you'll get more use out of it

Viscera Seer - Not a bad way to make sure you don't draw something useless

Mortician Beetle - Simple yet extremely effective in a deck like this


Asceticism - Dude, just yes. This card is insanely amazing.

Golgari Charm - The regenerate factor protects all of your tokens from a wrath effect. Nothing like having a winning board state, to be reset with a Wrath of God.


Doubling Season - While expensive, can help with redundancy with Primal Vigor.

Parallel Lives - Redundancy again, but does stack with the others.

This is everything that came to mind at first, hope you find somethings to help your deck!

ZendikariWol I cannot run Primal Vigor. I have Simic Ezuri, Marath, and Atraxa in my meta.

Not big on Surge; I'm considering Impact Tremors. I like that it hits everyone. I might try it out though.

More doublers you say? How about Primal Vigor? It's like doubling season, but worse. But redundant! But worse.

All right so this deck is super fun and pretty competitive. But to give you tips I need to know: what's your meta like; what are your opponents running? Oh, except Primal Vigor. It's not as good as Anointed Procession in this brew, but redundance is good. Also: Warstorm Surge: peck 'em to death! Good targeted removal here for the sheer volumes of creatures here.

man, that means so much to me. i worked so hard and spent countless hours building it without any help, tediously going through so many cards and for you to say that, and to see where im coming from. seriously its priceless. Its so nice to hear. also, thank you so much for listing some cards to look into. i have only one copy of Parallel Livesthat i was planning on using in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck. and as for Primal Vigor that is in my Daghatar the Adamant deck. i only have so many copies,i need to get more because seriously thats some good advice. Explorer's Scope was in here for awhile until i picked up the Sword of the Animist and i only have so much room for equipment. its always hard trying to figure out what cards to pull. if you have a chance to look at some of my other decks,i really appreciate your advice. thanks again, man.

I just wanna say that I love your list. I've been a fan of Mina and Dinn since I started playing magic and reading the lore. This looks like a powerful list that can plow through the more expensive decks that can't keep up. I do have some suggestions for cards I'm surprised you over looked, first and for most Parallel Lives or a Primal Vigor you have a fair amount of token generation and if elementals dying for omnath is your favourite combo maybe something like Mycloth could help with that. Adventuring Gear and Explorer's Scope can pump your boy's and help you ramp. Finally, it sucks that you bought a banned card but maybe you could substitute it with Baloth Woodcrasher it doesn't fetch a land but it's a cheap card and a similar body

You're missing Phyrexian Processor. It is completely broken with Trostani. Also if you want another crazy combo, Darien, King of Kjeldor basicly makes you immune to damage while Trostani is out. In most cases Advent of the Wurm is going to be better than Coursers' Accord. It's a little more situational, but since you're already playing Primal Vigor you probably don't mind, but Parallel Evolution can change games. With the life you'll be gaining you may also want to consider Aetherflux Reservoir, insta-kills can come in handy if the board doesn't let you take everyone out at once.I love my Trostani deck, it was the second deck I ever built, and it's still one of my favorites to play with.
Good Luck!
