Trostani, Selesnya's Voice Discussion

hossnugget on Doran, the Siege Tower [EDH]

GoldenBasilisk thanks so much for playing the deck and the feedback which is super helpful. I was tossing together sort of a budget deck for Doran who I've always wanted to play. Creatures are my next upgrade target and Ohran Frostfang is probably top of the list. I have a copy of Trostani, Selesnya's Voice but decided to cut for more aggro, but it was a tough cut. And definitely agree, I need more tutor haha, I appreciate the suggestions.

Hi there! I playtested this deck just for fun with my partner and wanted to leave some feedback :D I only played with it twice, and I won both matches because my partner got pretty bad draws.

This deck is a beast! I think you have a good amount of sweeping removal and ramp, and the mana costs are reasonable. I was able to deal a lot of damage pretty quickly, and I appreciate the toolbox-like effects of many of the creatures. The lifegain seemed to perfectly balance out the life loss from your damage inflicting lands and card draw spells. I had a lot of fun playing it!

That being said, I think it might do you some good to include more targeted removal and card draw. I get a lot of usage from Beast Whisperer in my Trostani, Selesnya's Voice deck. I would suggest something like that; card draw engines are definitely useful. I think that a few of the creatures such as Kami of Old Stone and Looming Altisaur could be replaced with creatures that have more to offer, because although they are efficient for what they do, I wish they had trample or vigilance or something. I also think including a couple tutors might be really helpful, such as Eladamri's Call, Congregation at Dawn, or even just Diabolic Tutor.

Not sure how much you are willing to shell out for the deck, but creatures like Ohran Frostfang might be good. If you play multiplayer and like elements of group hug, Heartwood Storyteller draws tons of cards. Abzan Charm is useful (I am a slut for cards that give me multiple options).

TL;DR, great deck, I enjoyed playing it and I think you could upgrade it easily with just a touch more card draw and elevated creatures.

raspberryfish25 on Emmara, Token Queen

I think you have a strong base for a Selesnya token deck but, I am not sure if Emmara, Soul of the Accord is the best choice for your commander. Emmara wants you to tap her and I don't see a lot of ways to tap her in this deck. Maybe consider switching your commander to Trostani, Selesnya's Voice which might work better to get out tokens.

If you want to use Emmara maybe you could look to add a few vehicles to this deck. Personally I think a card like Smuggler's Copter would be a great addition to this deck because, it gives you card filtering and a tap outlet for Emmara. Citanul Hierophants could also help you ramp and will give an additional tap source for Emmara. Nature's Chosen is an older card but would work really well with Emmara. I see you have some cards with the convoke ability which I think is strong in this deck. Maybe consider adding some more convoke cards like, March of the Multitudes , Chord of Calling , Scatter the Seeds and, Conclave Tribunal ?

This deck seems really light on card draw / card advantage, consider using some of these cards to help you draw. Skullclamp which will draw you an insane amount of cards off Emmara alone and, is almost an auto include in a token deck. Idol of Oblivion , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , Huatli, Radiant Champion , Season of Growth and, Ohran Frostfang are all really good cards that will give you card advantage and synergies with your token theme. One last card you might consider is Well of Lost Dreams especially if you find yourself gaining a lot of life off the Emmara tokens.

Lastly, I would consider removing these cards, Eidolon of Blossoms , Evangel of Heliod , Oakhame Ranger , Worldsoul Colossus , Banishing Light and, Collective Voyage . While I don't think these cards are bad I don't they they are impactful enough in this deck.

I would consider adding these cards, Parallel Lives , Doubling Season (if you can afford it), Castle Ardenvale , Beastmaster Ascension , Collective Blessing (maybe consider removing some of your smaller anthem effect like, Honor of the Pure for bigger anthem effect like these), Eladamri's Call , Eternal Witness , Champion of Lambholt , Generous Gift and, Beast Within .

Hopefully some of these suggestions helped but, I think you are off to a really good start with your deck!

So I really like this deck and it seems like it is fairly resilient. A few things I would consider adding would be more cards that synergize with your life gain strategy and Trostani’s populate ability such as:

  • Angelic Accord More tokens for gaining life in a deck that wants to make tokens and gain life seems like a win to me.

  • Well of Lost Dreams Fantastic way to turn that additional life gain into card advantage.

  • Ajani's Pridemate I saw you already included Ageless Entity which this card functions very close to it so might be worth running both.

  • Congregate This is a nice card that works extremely well in Commander if you need a quick boost in life. Note Congregate reads target player gains 2 life for each creature on the battlefield. Many times, when I would use this card in a commander game I would easily gain 20 plus life off it.

  • Serra Avatar One way to read this card is play Serra Avatar with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice in play and double your life total. Even if you don’t have Trostani out you are still getting in most cases a creature that is well over a 7/7 most games for 7 mana which is a good deal.

  • Aetherflux Reservoir Can function as a secondary WinCon that you can pull out of nowhere. Trust me, play this card when you have an excess life total then instantly activate it taking the player that is the biggest threat out of the game. Also, don’t write off the first ability on the card. You would be surprised how quickly you gain life by just playing spells.

  • Growing Ranks A free populate at the beginning of each of your turns can be extremely strong in this deck.

  • Rootborn Defenses , Sundering Growth Both cards are similar to cards you are already running they just also include populate to further increase your board.

  • Advent of the Wurm 4 mana for a 5/5 trample is straight value plus this will work really well with populate.

  • Armada Wurm 6 mana for a 5/5 trample that also creates a 5/5 trample wurm token. 10 power for 6 mana plus gaining a token works with populate.

  • Glare of Subdual In a deck that wants to go wide this can quickly shut down opponents from attacking you.

  • Blade of Selves and Herald of the Host Both of these cards work extremely well with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice . How they work is you attack with either Herald of the Host or the creature Blade of Selves is equipped to and let the myriad ability activate creating a copy of the creature that is attacking your other opponents. Normally the tokens created off the myriad ability would be exiled at the end of combat but, if you use Trostani, Selesnya's Voice ’s populate ability during your combat phase you can create an additional copy of the token that will stay in play after the combat phase is over because, it was created using the populate mechanic and not the myriad mechanic. Even if you don’t populate the tokens that were created Trostani, Selesnya's Voice ’s life gain ability will still trigger off the tokens gaining you a lot of additional life. The myriad ability also works extremely well with creatures that have enter the battlefield abilities. Imagine this line of play, you equip Blade of Selves to your Terastodon then attack. The myriad ability triggers and you put two additional token copies of Terastodon into play attacking your other opponents. When those Terastodon tokens enter the battlefield they trigger their enter the battlefield ability allowing you to remove up to six other noncreature permanents (three from each of the Terastodon’s that came into play). Also imagine Blade of Selves attached to Serra Avatar you would be tripling your life total each time you attack as long as Trostani is out.

A few cards I would personally consider removing Thrun, the Last Troll , Primal Surge , Godsend , Strionic Resonator , Woodfall Primus , Rout (maybe consider replacing Rout for Martial Coup which seems more on theme for a token deck) Felidar Sovereign , (I get why you added him but winning with Felidar in commander seems like a cheap way to win.)

A lot of these cards really don’t seem on theme for either gaining more life or creating tokens. Personally, I would look at replacing a lot of these creatures with creatures that make tokens when they come into play like Armada Wurm that you can use to populate or cards that synergize with your life gain like Ajani's Pridemate .

One last thing your combo of Darien, King of Kjeldor + Trostani, Selesnya's Voice does not work exactly as you think. For Darien to trigger the damage has to resolve meaning that if a player deals more damage than your life total at once then you would die before Darien could trigger. As long as you have at least one life after damage resolves and both Darien and Trostani are on the field then your combo works, you create the solider token from Darien and, Trostani gives you the life from the token coming into play.

Wolfpig on Atla Palani, Nesting

Creatures with Changeling would work really well for this. I did a budget build for her once using some and it worked really well. It can be hard to find specific egg cards, but something like Runed Stalactite might help bolster your deck performance. I mean, if everything is an egg all you need is sac triggers. Lots of those in white/green/red.

Feed the Pack like mechanics would spread your board wider and give Atla her trigger. Anything you can use as a sac advantage is recommended to moving your eggs. I also used populate mechanics from Selesnya cards like Trostani, Selesnya's Voice to get more eggs without having to slot expensive cards like Parallel Lives or Anointed Procession .

Ok, so this thread kinda blew up more than I expected, so forgive me for the monster text.

To avoid a massive wall of text, I will divide my responses in spoiler blocks to ease the view.

I'd try adding Trostani, Selesnya's Voice for some good late game sustainability. Shes also a great mana sink for the deck too.
