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.

Have you considered Slate of Ancestry before or does that seem like Overkill.

Slate of Ancestry Great Oak Guardian Phytoburst Weird Harvest Genesis Wave Planar Bridge these are some of the payout cards I've been running, and phytoburst has no reason not to be in brostorm lists because it has a giant boost, would cut for immense. Planar bridge seems dumb, but it isn't that hard to make 14 mana and paradox engine into slate is gg no re. I personally like birthing pod as well. Bloom tender for Beastcaller Savant ? Vitalize and friends? Also one forest for Tranquil Thicket g to draw is pretty good. All my opinion but my deck has a pretty consistent turn 3 win threat just from the mass of extra tutors and hand advantage I run, and I've found that trying to run too many answers is a bad thing, since mono g lends itself to all in fast combo. I personally just run the counter spell counters, the destroy artifact creatures, and Mana Web , but that is more for if your meta is exceptionally blue heavy, though it still makes opponents chose between stopping you and advancing their own plan instead of both. Hope this helps

Hey GHOST_SCKOPE, great deck! Looks like you're going with a lifegain/token/boardwipe theme, right? I've got an Odric, Master Tactician deck that runs in a similar fashion. You might want to consider his inclusion, since he is a soldier, and his ability to choose blockers can be incredibly advantageous.

Eldrazi Monument seems like a solid addition as well, provided you have enough fodder for the cost each turn. Akroma's Memorial is another option for beefing up your dudes. With all of the token generation, you may want to include Divine Visitation , because 4/4 flying angels are better than 1/1 walking soldiers. Hero of Bladehold gets pretty out of control if none of you opponents take care of her quickly either. May be worth the consideration. I've found that Evangel of Heliod can be amazing for creating tokens when you have enough white devotion. If you like soldier tokens, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is great for making them. They may be cat soldiers, but I don't discriminate. If going wide is your strategy for success Crusader of Odric is a good backup plan, since it'll likely be pumped up with all of your other tokens. I see you have the Soul Sisters in the deck, as well as some others that are similar. Have you considered adding Anointer Priest ? Sure, it only counts for tokens, but that doesn't seem like it'd be an issue in this deck.

I'm not seeing a Mirror Entity in your list, which is a great addition to a lot of these kinds of decks. Might want to consider finding a slot for him. Card draw can end up being an issue for me in mono-white. Have you thought about including cards like Slate of Ancestry and Alhammarret's Archive ?

How is your mana base treating you? I usually play with fewer lands than I should, so I make excellent usage of cards like Land Tax and Sword of the Animist . I see you have Knight of the White Orchid , but that may not always cut it. On the subject of mana, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is, in my humble opinion, an excellent card for almost any mono-colored deck. I see you have the Caged Sun in the deck. If you were interested in including backups, you could add the Gauntlet of Power , and the Extraplanar Lens , as well as Doubling Cube . Mana for daaaaays!

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is great in decks like these. If you're a fan of her and need a backup, Crovax, Ascendant Hero might fit the bill.

The last suggestion for a possible addition would be Evra, Halcyon Witness . The card is great for swapping your life total with its power to kill an opponent, if your life total is high enough. I know it doesn't really fit the rest of the deck, but the life total trick is worth it when it gets pulled off. Overall it seems like a really fun deck to play! Hope the suggestions help out!

Other cards in white that deal damage to you are rare, but some colorless cards exist for the job, here all of the ones that come to mind:

The white part of the Odyssey utility threshold lands: Nomad Stadium

Grand Coliseum and City of Brass

Mana Vault and Mana Crypt are even better than usual here!

Staff of Nin xDD to deal damage to you!

Ankh of Mishra would be amazing!

Off of that staff one I though of Blasting Station ... there is some infinite combo there, right?

Jinxed Idol might not be so jinxed after all!

Ancient Tomb is amazing as well.


That is all I have for that... now for some finishers once you have the life/token engine going!

Well of Lost Dreams / Mentor of the Meek ? They would do a fair amount of work in terms of drawing.

Felidar Sovereign / Archangel of Thune - normal lifegain shenanigans.

Jazal Goldmane / Cathars' Crusade / Coat of Arms / Mirror Entity / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - normal token shenanigans.

Anointed Procession for more fun?

Divine Visitation too...

Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar would be good value

Slate of Ancestry on that note.

That's all I got... other than random anthem effects like Dictate of Heliod , but that would be too weak IMO.

Had a look at your deck and I love it! mainly because of my love for wolves but still :)

I do think you need to up your lands(34-35). And you need some ramp playing cards like Kodama's Reach Skyshroud Claim ect are amazing!(6-9)

I think you have a split focus of wolves and general tokens. I think the deck would run a lot smoother if you run more token based strategies ( unfortunately this would involve loosing some wolves D: ).

Also more draw could help lots. if you stick with lots of creature spells cards like Beast Whisperer and Lurking Predators would give a significant card advantage! if not cards like Slate of Ancestry that will also trigger on tokens

and last comment is more removal Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares and a couple more instant speed fight cards will do wonders at stunting your opponents.
