Test of Endurance Discussion

One win con you can definitely use to end games is Aetherflux Reservoir . Another way you can win is also Test of Endurance . Fun cards to abuse with life gain is Necrologia , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , and Karlov of the Ghost Council . Also Vedalken Orrery wouldn't be the worse card to gain access to flashing in spells.

For more taxing effects, you can look into cards like Hushwing Gryff , Aven Mindcensor , if your in the anti-artifact route. Kataki, War's Wage is a good one as well as Alms Collector .

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the help, this is actually the first deck I've tried brewing by myself. I wanted to go for situations where I could win just from lifegain with cards like Felidar Sovereign Aetherflux Reservoir and Test of Endurance but I havent been able to get them yet. What cards would you think that don't fit this theme of tokens and lifegain at all in the deck? And also I'm a bit worried I don't have enough removal, what do you think? Again, thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it

Hey AshlynAmberlight, you ever thought about using Approach of the Second Sun as a possible win condition?

Or if your play group allows it, since you run Faith's Reward you can go use Armageddon in conjunction with it.

If your going for the life gain route, there is a possible win condition being either Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

This is a great start. Here are some suggestions from a Trostani deck that I use, organized by pricing tiers to help keep this deck budget:

< $1

Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage
3/3 Tokens and another way to populate

Felidar Sovereign
Alternate Win Condition. Probably works better with Trostani as commander due to the increased life gain, but there's quite a bit of life gain in this deck regardless, so it may work.

Rampaging Baloths
Consistent way to get som big tokens on the battlefield for free. (Works well with Traverse the Outlands)

Emmara Tandris
Some token protection

Trostani's Summoner
Get a variety of tokens out quick

Advent of the Wurm
Just a decent token to populate later

Druid's Deliverance
Fog with populate. Optional, but not too bad

Cultivate
More mana!

White Sun's Zenith
Utilize that mana and go wide

Second Harvest
Speaking of going wide, mega populate

Increasing Devotion
Just get some dudes on the board

Phyrexian Rebirth
Board wipe with a token upside

Intangible Virtue
Go wide with a little extra damage, and still have some blockers left

Angelic Accord
Like your Resplendent Angel, but harder to remove, and only requires you to gain 4 life.

Tamiyo's Journal A slow tutor, but might draw you some cards if you can't get to the tutor

$1 - $5

Devout Invocation
Potentially double your board, with 4/4 fliers!

Storm Herd
Another mass token maker, but with 1/1 fliers (evasion is nice)

Aetherflux Reservoir
Alternate win condition. Probably better with Trostani as commander as you need to be able to absorb a loss of 50 life, but even in commander, most other people won't be able to say the same.

Beastmaster Ascension
Win condition. With a wide board, +5/+5 is huge. Also creatures enter the battlefield with the +5/+5, so with Trostani out that's some good extra life gain.

Sandwurm Convergence
Consistent way to get some decent tokens. Also protection from flying

Primal Command
Life gain, removal, mill protection, and tutor? This card just has value.

> $5

Panharmonicon
Again, designed for Trostani to double up on life gain, but helps with any ETB effects you have, of which there are a couple

Anointed Procession
Should be in any white token deck

Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Create creatures, get rid of big threats, maybe get your team in the air

Ezuri's Predation
Often a one-sided boardwipe, makes a ton ot tokens, and will sometime just win the game

Traverse the Outlands
Mana! This is only really good if you have a larger creature out, but like I said above, works really well with Rampaging Baloths

Test of Endurance
Basically another Felidar Sovereign, harder to remove, but requires 50 life instead of 40

Chord of Calling
Green tutor with convoke. You have a bunch of tokens, why not?

Green Sun's Zenith
Potentially reusable creature tutor. have to have the mana available, but it will find answers for you.

Bonus

Parallel Lives
Not exactly budget, but valuable in a token deck

Enlightened Tutor
Artifact and Enchantment Tutor. Again, not really budget, but likely worth it in your deck

Some really good cards for Oloro are Test of Endurance and Felidar Sovereign since Oloro just kinda sits his lazy ass in the command zone forever, you'll be gaining a heap of life and these cards make you win if you have a certain amount of life, a combo that is good for any life gain oriented decks is the Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond combo as all it takes to trigger is your gain 2 life at upkeep trigger and you win.

Not got enough card draw? fret not as cards like Greed and Necropotence can provide you with it at a cheap one life per card. if your creatures are killed, use Phyrexian Reclamation. Want even more life? try Paradox Haze to give you not one upkeep, BUT TWO.

I would also recommend a few tutors as black is by far the strongest colour for tutors. I would recommend Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition, Lim-Dul's Vault and anything else.

The usual win condition I see with Oloro decks is they combo off and win that way, some combos that work well with Oloro other than the Exquisite/bond combo is probably the following Reveillark/Karmic Guide+ any sac outlet and something dumb like Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat

Aetherflux Reservoir+Children of Korlis Nuke two players with one stone.

create infinite mana somehow and then play Debt to the Deathless to drain everyone to death.

overall I would say this deserves an upvote because as much as I hate Oloro decks, I'll admit they are effective at what they do.

I would look at first expanding your mana base. Get some nonbasics in. Checklands are cheap (such as Glacial Fortress), as are the ravnica bounce lands (such as Azorius Chancery).

Some more win-cons would be pretty good. Storm Herd, Laboratory Maniac, Felidar Sovereign, Test of Endurance, and Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond are all usual suspects for Oloro.

As far as what to cut, I would probably first look at cards that offer relatively little value, such as Crystal Rod and Epicure of Blood. What they do are weak compared to other cards in the deck, and cost a lot of mana.

If you're looking for a more control-style decklist, I had an Oloro deck:

Hope that helps, +1 from me.

Here is a list of tons of alternate ways to win

https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Alternate-win_or_-loss_cards

For something like this deck Cryptolith Rite and Helix Pinnacle are great. Epic Struggle would be perfect.

You could probably do Test of Endurance or Felidar Sovereign too but I don't know if they really match up with the deck.
