Secure the Wastes
Put X 1/1 white Warrior creature tokens onto the battlefield.
Secure the Wastes Discussion
2 weeks ago
I definitely confirm what's already been told you by others. Cards have to be included only if they support your deck's gameplay and/or flavour. You may include some pet cards just for fun, but trust me, sooner or later, you'll find a game in which you draw one of those and you'll be screwed... It happened to me too, it's a matter of trial and error sometimes.
Anyways, if you desperately need cards that punish your opponents from attacking you, I'd suggest: No Mercy , Dissipation Field and Dread just to name some from the top of my head. Remember though, that if you're dealt lethal damage, the triggered ability of all those cards, Teysa EoG included, will fizzle because you're dead (and as a state base action your spells, permanents and such are exiled). That's saying that those cards won't help you when facing lethal damage.
On the other hand, if what you need are tokens, I'm sure you'll find better options depending on the deck and/or needs you have. I think of Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Ophiomancer or any of the plentiful white effects to create tokens, like Secure the Wastes , or to double them like Anointed Procession .
If you need good protection creatures, again, it depends on your colors and deck strategy. Do an advanced search on Scryfall with keyword "protection" and some commander identity color limitations and you'll be good to go.

I love token decks and I have a very well tuned green white token deck. And i always wanted to splash red in them for the punishment a board wipe would do to the opponents with cards like Vicious Shadows and Stalking Vengeance
It would also be really neat to have Purphoros, God of the Forge or Warstorm Surge and/or other effect like that in play, then put a ton of tokens out with something like Secure the Wastes or Finale of Glory

Nice deck! I have some suggestions
24 is kind of a high land count, and you don’t really see it in decks that aren’t ramp theme. I would recommend cutting out your two Shambling Vent s. For the nonlands, there are a couple of odd choices I see. Leyline of Combustion is just strictly bad. It would be better to have a less expensive creature that provides more value for the deck. Also, Plague Engineer seems like more of a sideboard card than anything else. Maybe have one or two of him in Mainboard, but three is a lot. Lastly, Eerie Interlude might seem like a good card, but you actually don’t have a lot of valuable etb creatures. Also, when you blink your blossom tokens, they don’t come back to the battlefield, as per the ruling in interlude. I think you don’t need four giver of runes, just three, and I also think you should have three angels and one felidar guardian, since angel has flash.
I would recommend more ETB creatures. Seasoned Pyromancer is the new card that I have seen in a lot of mardu decks, and it would be a crazy value generator, giving you tokens when you flicker it with your angel and deluded guardian as well as providing three etb triggers for purphoros and impact tremors. Thought-Knot Seer might be a good card, getting rid of any answers your opponent might have in their hand. Fiend Hunter could also be good; you can play fiend hunter, exiling one of their creatures, then in response to the trigger you flicker fiend hunter. The card is exiled, but it will never get the “when fiend hunter leaves the battlefield, trying to opponent’s battlefield” trigger, since the flickered fiend hunter is treated as an entirely new creature. If you want to just spam out creatures, Lingering Souls and Secure the Wastes could work quite well.

Silverpandaria I did consider Lingering Souls at the decks inception but Secure the Wastes actually is a bit stronger thanks to instant speed. Unfortunately the floor is just far too low with either card. Smuggler's Copter and Beckon Apparition are bad cards but they at least have some utility outside of creating Divergent targets.

While I have no vast knowledge of Rhys - I never played with and against him - I do believe that I could make making some solid observations.
The decks average cmc is currently 2.99. I would try to trim this down as much as possible.
How far are you planning to go to optimize your manabase? I would ditch the tapped/suboptimal lands and select these lands: Savannah , Brushland , Sungrass Prairie , Cavern of Souls , Windswept Heath , Flooded Strand , Marsh Flats , Misty Rainforest . I am not sure how deep you want to invest in this. But selecting an optimal manabase greatly improves your overall gameplay.
Which cards do I feel would be really interesting for you to consider:
- Karametra's Acolyte
- Huatli, Radiant Champion
- Beast Within
- Imperious Perfect
- Triumph of the Hordes
- Mirror Entity
- Beastmaster Ascension
- Seedborn Muse
- Secure the Wastes
- Noxious Revival
- Wirewood Symbiote
- Chord of Calling
This should give you some food for thought :-)
