Grove of the Guardian is a good land you could throw in, gives you a big token that can be copied. Cryptolith Rite is insane ramp. Illusionist's Bracers to copy Rhys's copy abillity, working very similarly to Doubling Season and crew. Crashing Drawbridge is a good budget way to give all your tokens haste which can be very valuable. Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Altar of the Brood are good wincons if you're not able to attack for whatever reason. Huatli, Radiant Champion, Mentor of the Meek, and Runic Armasaur are all pretty consistent card draw options throughout the entire game. And Aura Shards is a huge defensive piece, keeping opponents' games out of sync with their key artifacts and enchantments. A few tutors to get out creatures and enchantments help as well... a few are Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Eladamri's Call, and Green Sun's Zenith. That should be a pretty good list to get you started, you can check out my Rhys deck if you would like for any other inspiration you may find: 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens). Rhys is such a fun commander! Make a big emphasis on ramp and quick token generation and watch it fly out of control! If you would like any help with cuts or any questions let me know!

You know, I've always dismissed Grove of the Guardian as garbage. Taking another look at it though, in magical EDH Christmas land I have all of the token doubling enchantments out + haste enablers and crush my enemies with a fleet of massive elementals. Colour fixing isn't a huge challenge in a dual colour deck and it doesn't enter tapped. Good call HannahBarbera, adding it for fun!

I've run many Selesnya token decks over the year, and I constantly find Grove of the Guardian to be a good land to include for big, splashy tokens during the mid and late game.

Awesome deck! This is a very fun take on Rhys, I like the few cards added for protection against board wipes! I think you might enjoy adding Champion of Lambholt or Odric, Master Tactician who can both help make your creatures unblockable. I also enjoy Huatli, Radiant Champion if you find you need more card draw in here. Grove of the Guardian can also be extremely fun creating some bigger token creatures! Here's my personal take on Rhys if you're interested: 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens).

Sterno_Inferno Anytime! Glad you liked it! Also wanted to say that you might think about removing temple of the false god which can be slow and even useless at times if you get it stuck in your hand early on for something like Grove of the Guardian for some fun tokens to play with!

Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Command Tower, Conqueror's Foothold, Crypt of the Eternals, Forest, Gingerbread Cabin, Gold-Forge Garrison, Grove of the Guardian, Holdout Settlement, Island, Llanowar Wastes, Lost Vale, Mountain, Plains, Primal Wellspring, Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Spires of Orazca, Swamp, Temple of Aclazotz, Tomb of the Dusk Rose, Treasure Cove, Wandering Fumarole, Wastes.

I used to give me a complete list of lands and subtraced what you had. I know Command Tower doesn't actually do anything but it's still legal. Do with that what you will. I also added the basics. They seem unnecessary but the addition of Wastes may be useful information.

Hope this helps!

  • I'd replace Karametra's Favor with Cryptolith Rite . Sure, you won't be able to draw a card, but you'll get a lot more use out of it.

  • A land suggestion would be Grove of the Guardian . Late game, it gets you an 8/8.

  • I'd replace Harmonize with Idol of Oblivion . It's kind of a risk-reward thing, but if it lasts till late game you can get a 10/10

  • While Beast Attack is nice due it being an instant, Trumpeting Herd is a lot better. Beast Attack gives you 8 power and toughness for 10 mana, while Trumpeting Herd gives you 6 power and toughness for 4 mana.

  • If you'd like, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is a great Token generator, but it takes 4-5 turns to get the emblem, depending on if you want to keep him or not. His +1 is nice, and his -2 can be alright.
