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.

I don't like Fatespinner because the opponent is who choses what he or she skips, and that can be unpredictable.

Opposition and Glare of Subdual are very good options. For now, I think that i will add Opposition (When I find what to cut), and keep Glare of Subdual in the maybeboard.

re: Smokestack -- remember you can easily set the counter at one without having to sacrifice anything by letting it sit in play for one turn and stacking the triggers how u like, then begin skipping your turns. Its a great pressure point and becomes a threat if someone manages to disrupt you, because you can then let the counters tick up as you set back up. Though, running into it mid game would be a drag, and it becomes a risk to play. So yeah I feel you.

Might consider adding some Opposition , Glare of Subdual type options

I like it. I don't know the age of your son, but it seems rather user-friendly. That is one of the nice features of these colors. I would suggest more card advantage. Perhaps something like a Skullclamp , Shamanic Revelation of maybe even a Dawn of Hope .

For green, it seems to be lacking in ramp. There is no shortage of ramp in these colors, but consider Cryptolith Rite .

Beastmaster Ascension is pretty much a must for any token deck.

There are some preventative cards you could add that helps add control to your colors such as Choke , Glare of Subdual , Sandwurm Convergence , Trostani Discordant .

Oketra is nice and works here. The other Oketra would be nice too God-Eternal Oketra .

Here are some other cards you might want to consider: Aura Mutation , Mycoloth , Loyal Unicorn , Loyal Guardian , Brawn , Seedborn Muse .

The deck seems light on card draw. Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project look like good fits as you have a high creature count.

A card that goes well with a token/go wide strat is Glare of Subdual to help defend or punch through as needed.

Another piece or two of targeted removal might not be a bad idea either; Beast Within and Generous Gift let you get this flexible effect in multiples.

Kjeldoran Outpost and/or Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree gives you a couple more options to generate token creatures. Cathars' Crusade and Gavony Township are there to make all of those tokens real threats.

Hey bushido_man96, thanks for your input!

Generous Gift is a great suggestion, altough I think i'm more inclined to taking out Swords to Plowshares .

Aura Shards is amazing in this deck, and would be just fine replacing Glare of Subdual for it. I'll include it in the Maybeboard for those without budget restrictions!
