Neat deck!

I've played a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice EDH deck and the strength of populate usually comes from big beefy token generators. 1/1 bird tokens with flying are great for the evasion, but you'll probably get more value and be more threatening with cards like Advent of the Wurm and Armada Wurm and Desolation Twin .

And if you're going wide with token, you could take advantage of anthems like Glorious Anthem and Leyline of the Meek and Intangible Virtue and True Conviction and Trostani Discordant .

Hope this helps!

heinrichdk My bad! I did read that one wrongly. Then yes... Desolation Twin is rather bad since there's no way to abuse it really well. Well okay, you could still get a 10/10 token if you turn itself into a token, but... might be TOO much for 10 mana.

Seance or Feldon of the Third Path wont get me a 20/20 over two bodies with Desolation Twin as it when you cast it and not a ETB ability

Okay, let's give a few starters.. Adding Rienne seems to be not such a great choice. Your amount of multicoloured creatures is, aside from her, only 9... and you should remove Tahngarth, First Mate for sure, perhaps Emmara Tandris too, since the big tokens might nog necessarily care TOO much for not receiving damage, especially for 7 mana. So I'd take Rienne out.

Taking out Hate Mirage also doesn't seem like a great idea. You have the ability to copy your opponents creatures and at least smack people in the face with them. Imagine some of your opponents playing either giant legendary Eldrazi or powerful ETB creatures. The best part though is that, if non-legendary, you can populate those creatures you were only gonna have for a turn...and make the populated token stay. Populating the token does NOT copy the exile clause of Hate Mirage, or any other sortlike clauses on red copy spells. Turning powerful creatures this way into tokens is a surefire way of your opponents going "oh-ooh..".

Desolation Twin is a doubting case... yes it costs 10.. but you are in green for ramp and probably want something like a Mirari's Wake anyway.. so it might be a good card. Plus if you somehow mill or discard it, a Feldon of the Third Path or Seance (which might be a worthwhile inclusion as well) can suddenly get you 20/20 on the board divided over 2 bodies. And each time you populate, you give yourself an additional 20/20.

Your deck now contains a single boardwipe in the form of Hour of Reckoning . I'd include 1-2 more in. Yes, you are very heavy on creatures and you would like to keep your board... but if you ever find yourself against such a powerful board, maybe even multiple times in a game, and it's wipe or lose... a 1/99 chance to draw your only boardwipe won't cut it. So to stay in token theme though, I'd add your removed Phyrexian Rebirth and perhaps, thought they are tiny, Martial Coup will give you at least 5 1/1s after wiping the board. It's something.

For the rest:

  • Trostani's Judgement (exile and synergy with deck.. but too expensive for single target removal). Replace that with something like Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile . Yes you ramp/let your opponent live longer... but at the same time you make sure you don't die to something you want to get rid off, NOW, for only a single mana you might have had left over somehow.

  • Alot more, but this comment is probably already getting a bit too long...

Hell, even BLUE would have been better than white :c

Though I am seriously looking forward to Desolation Twin jank.

Desolation Twin isn’t bad since it makes two really big bodies.

Deepfathom Skulker could also be good for some card draw and a rogue’s passage like effect.
