DoctorAwker I appreciate the feedback! I'll definitely tweak the ramp package as when I put it together it was mostly based on what I had on hand. I'll look at some of the big token makers you mentioned because I want the deck to have legs in the late game too! I may swap Selesnya Guildmage for Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage as it seems to do the same job just better. Another instance of me just putting in what I have. As I stated in another comment, she's just picking up the game and I have some EDH decks that will match well with this one. I'm hoping she picks it up like she has been and then we can invest more in optimizing with cards you mentioned such as Doubling Season! I'm trying to keep costs down a bit but I'll definitely keep your comment handy!

I would definitely suggest adding in Mimic Vat. It's incredibly flexible, and you can Populate the token and keep that copy. The tokens from Desolation Twin and Phyrexian Processor can be hilarious with Trostani. Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage can Populate multiple times so I'd try to find a space for it. And Phyrexian Rebirth is a great wrath for this deck.

I agree with the first post regarding Explosive Vegetation. I'd personally run Rampant Growth, but if not I'd recommend swapping it for Circuitous Route since it can also find the guildgate, or Skyshroud Claim since you get those lands untapped and it can find duals (in which case I'd also add in Scattered Groves and Temple Garden if possible).

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the big token doublers: Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, and Rhys the Redeemed. But since this is a deck for someone else who's new to the game I can understand why you might not want to include those. But they're always worth mentioning for anything that churns out tokens.

I hope some of that helps : )

Here’s a small list of cards that are a must for this deck I’m surprised I don’t see:

The two I commented on are musts in in any Trostani deck in my opinion. The others would be strong additions.

In Round (3) - Gideon Blackblade , Green Sun's Zenith , Serra Ascendant , Birds of Paradise , Sacred Foundry .

Out Round (3) - Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage , Ohran Frostfang , Roc Egg , Boros Garrison , Momentous Fall

Gideon for protection, lifegain, aggro creature, and removal if he gets that high; Zenith for fetch/ ramp with birds and other green creatures, serra ascendant is an EDH staple due to lifegain, aggro nature and synergies with other target list cards; birds for ramp, sacred foundry for boros because I hate bounce lands and this speeds up the deck.

Guildmage mana abilities are not as good as Trostani and are costly, Ascendant takes this spot. Momentous fall is too slow and don't see when I would play this over other cards; Frostfang is fantastic until tons of tokens are out and I am unintentionally milling myself; birds is a better roc egg, I am not running midrange but token focused so that is why it is out.

Massacar Yeah im having that problem where I'm not really sure what to replace. I like everything that's in there at the moment. Hmm I'll have to consider that. Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage isn't necessarily bad but it does require quite a bit of mana to do anything with. That 2 card combo sounds ridiculously fun

Gleeock I didn't even realize. That's pretty good then!! Ah yes, a Feather deck could be quite fun. I haven't played a spellslinger deck yet either but the card does interest me

Shalai, Voice of Plenty is definitely a good card if you deal with a lot of blue in your meta, not sure what you might feel up to cutting in its place though.

Another quick card to consider, maybe swap out your Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage for an Emmara, Soul of the Accord . It's the same cost, but produces a token everytime it's tapped instead.

Or, if you'd like to add a full blown 2 card combo, you can add Presence of Gond and Midnight Guard for as many tokens as you can name.

Jaypay1994 Thanks for the suggestion.

I originally ran Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage for some repeatable instant speed Populate but I ended up cutting it because it ended up being way too slow. And Tolsimir himself will actually already gain you tons of life. Still, I'm sure that in some builds, Trostani could be a nice include.
