Wow, every aspect of this thing is all over the place.

I strongly recommend you cut everything from the deck that you wouldn't run as a 4 of.

I feel like Populate could be strong so you should focus on the cards that solidify that game plan.

When Ravnica was in standard Scion of Vitu-Ghazi was really strong. It and Blade Splicer may be worth running here.

Your deck is great. I wish I had the same idea. Ever thought of using Dromoka's Command?

Thanks! I've always favored white/green and wanted to give the whole populate theme a try. Still needs some testing out. I have Dromoka's Command as a maybe. There were a lot of cards I was interested in.

Why the heck are you running a Godless Shrine? The only card that needs it is Vault of the Archangel, with only one of each, you may as well drop both of them for basic lands.

The vivid lands belong in a proliferate deck, not a populate deck, you may as well run Selesnya Guildgate.

this deck is all over the place, why are you running Heroes' Reunion? If you're interested in life gain then you should be running Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden or the green one i can't remember the name of.

I recommend you look into the Convoke mechanic for the deck, since you're running tokens.

Sorry if that came off as rude, I remember when the decks i built would look like this.

Are you looking for big tokens or lots of little ones?

I appreciate the feedback. I know it needs improvement. Ive only been playing for a little over a year so still figuring out the dynamics.

Updated the lands. Added another Parallel Lives, Blade Splicer and a few others.

Looks much improved since my last visit.

I would drop anything with a CMC above 3 with exception of Spectral Procession. I would go up to 4 on that.

applejaxxx528 says... #11

Doubling Season is definitely on my WANT list...just not in the budget yet. Until then I figure Parallel Lives will have to work, lol. Thanks DatOneGuy

APPLE01DOJ thanks! I'm definitely trying to improve it. My problem is narrowing down the cards. I'm selfish and want them all. Lol. Thanks for the feedback!!

I am surprised I didn't found a True Conviction here!

March 16, 2017 7:21 p.m.

applejaxxx528 says... #14

I am too! Lol. True Conviction should be in it! Thanks!!

March 16, 2017 8:08 p.m.

APPLE01DOJ says... #15

No it shouldn't. When your deck has 19 lands, 6 drops are just not viable, no matter how good it is.

March 16, 2017 10:17 p.m.

applejaxxx528 says... #16

APPLE01DOJ I totally missed the count on lands. Thanks for pointing that out.True Conviction is a great card but I see your point about the cost. However, I do have 4 Birds of Paradise which gives me access to more mana. And if I can get Cryptolith Rite on the board I have the potential for even more.

That's my thought...

Talus21 says... #17

I like it, but what about keeping the one of enchantments and using a tutor to get the one you want? Something like Idyllic Tutor or Vessel of Nascency.

March 17, 2017 3:27 p.m.

If you want a 6 mana infinite combo, try Midnight Guard and Presence of Gond.

I would drop the Vault of the Archangel because they are just not necessary and then I would also drop 2 Grove of the Guardian so you can get some more dual lands in there or even fetch lands like Windswept Heath or Temple Garden or even Blossoming Sands. You could also throw in Advent of the Wurm cause that's a pretty cool card as well. Other than that sick deck dude/dudete!

Thank you for the suggestions! Very much appreciated. I'm all about improving the deck.

March 19, 2017 10:40 p.m.

applejaxxx528 says... #23

That1guy69 thanks! I was actually thinking about dropping those lands for dual ones. Windswept Heath and Temple Garden are what I'm looking to bring in!

March 19, 2017 10:46 p.m.

That1guy69 says... #24

applejaxxx528 no problem!

ThoAlmighty says... #25

What is your plan with Vault of the Archangel? It seems all it is is a tap for as you have no black mana. Other than your single cryptolith rite, it seems utterly useless.

March 20, 2017 12:52 p.m.

applejaxxx528 says... #26

ThoAlmighty I removed Vault of the Archangel awhile ago...appears I forgot to take it off the list. Thanks for the catch !!

I had debated putting a splash of black but haven't pursued it..yet. Not sure if I will.

applejaxxx528 says... #28

APPLE01DOJ Thanks! Apparently I haven't had enough coffee this morning 90% of the cards listed on sb wasn't meant for sideboard. They were cards for my maybe board.I liked Banishing Light and Phyrexian Unlife. But I am very interested in your suggestions and I have most of those cards already so sb will be updated later. You're awesome!!

Since you yourself have talked about Windswept Heath, and fortunately its not the most expensive fetchland, I'll go ahead and propose a mana base with it:

4x Windswept Heath

2x Stirring Wildwood

4x Temple Garden

3x Sunpetal Grove

4x Forest

3x Plains

In your Colors, Horizon Canopy is an Option, albeit a very expensive one.

Unflinching Courage is pretty terrible. if you want an effect like this, Basilisk Collar is the way to go.

Generally speaking, i think 5drop planeswalkers are too greedy, even with acceleration. The only reason you would Need Cryptolith Rite is to cast them, and rite is just a bad Card in many situations.

I would dop all 4 Cards that occupy those Slots and work on redundancy, or possibly include some Kitchen Finks. you could max out on Voice of Resurgence too, its really powerful.

Doomed Traveler might also be worth a thought. it becomes Spectral Procession with Parallel Lives.

applejaxxx528 says... #30

Thank you TheAlexGnan.

I would love to put Horizon Canopy in but alas it's not in the budget as of yet. One can wish.

I definitely can do the mana base you provided. I have the cards coming in this week.

I like basilik collar and believe I have at one and 2 gorgan's head. I can probably swap those for a Unflinching Courage.

Thanks for the suggestions very much appreciated!

ndgipper says... #32

you might want to have a Grove of the Guardian or tow if you are focusing on the populate ability. Rootborn Defenses is nice, and Sundering Growth is good for those decks that are really annoying enchantments/artifacts. In my opinion, and I use a token deck as my casual deck, the auras may not be a very good idea as they can only be on one creature. maybe some Shamanic Revelation for cards and life as well. Overall, its a good deck tho. +1 for sure!

Teddyjunior11 says... #33

for the one more mana just play Elspeth, Sun's Champion

March 24, 2017 11:54 a.m.

Trtl says... #34

I counter Teddyjunior11's suggestion with my own!

...Oh, right, the recommendation. Why, none other than Elspeth Tirel! (In other words, Tirel is better because it helps your strategy better)

March 24, 2017 12:01 p.m.

Teddyjunior11 says... #35

Trtl Elspeth Tirel's -2 is Elspeth's Plus one which helps if they ever try and kill it and if you have a board state that has huge creatures elspeth sun's champion can wipe the board of huge creatures instead of having to waste fog effects life total isnt a concern because you will have the ground locked up with all the creatures, not to mention all the fog type effects. Plus not alot of decks have a straight up answer to Elspeth and she turns games faster than Tirel.

March 24, 2017 12:13 p.m.

applejaxxx528 says... #36

Thanks Teddyjunior11 and Trtl!!

I do like Elspeth Tirel because of the +2 lifegain factor as well as the -2 for tokens. It's why I chose it.

But I do see how Elspeth, Sun's Champion could also work with the +1 and 3 tokens. However it's cmc is also more to bring out.

Call of the Conclave and Advent of the Wurm seem like they'd fit in this deck.
