Ya the deck is structured a little wierd right now as I wanted to run cards like Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Spawnwrith, some of the other token cards, and yes Wayfaring Temple lol, cause I like them and they weren't seeing play, but yeah even with some of the less competitive ones in there I can ramp so fast with Rhys's ability to make elves while I'm playing elves from my hand as well I can often play cards like giant adephage turn 4 or the brood master, that early in the game either they have a board wipe or you win, cause by that time you'll probly have an untap as well and be able to do many awful things, I cant remember the exact sequence but I've swung for some 200+ dmg turn 6, if unchecked this deck is crazy strong, however all of that is great on paper, when you roll up in real life and drop a turn 1 commander and proceed to ramp out of control, you get hated out of games quickly, I often have players team up to stop this decks strong early game, thank you for all the kind words as well I'd love to get in a match against yur izoni :)

Very cool deck! Awesome synergy though I have found from my past experience that Wayfaring Temple is not worth it unless you can always give it trample. I suppose you can do that. That said I think Rancor would make a great card. Even on just your commander Rhys the Redeemed that card would give you a turn two 3 power trampler. Not bad. Plus it is great with Wayfaring Temple. My deck as you saw is a token one too, but I mostly use them for sacrifices! I would love to see my Izoni, Thousand-Eyed go against this dope looking deck. Turn 6 consistent win you say?

Hey! Thanks for the comment, I run The Great Henge in my volrath deck and only reason I don’t have it in this is price tag hahah, these two decks I have in cards. It’s certainly one id like 2 copies of. Wayfaring Temple was in for a while but it felt slowish, I danced around with Voice of Resurgence but both fell a little flat for me

What about Nacatl War-Pride or Wayfaring Temple as possible creature includes? I would also consider including The Great Henge, I know you are token focused but a lifegain mana battery in green that can also draw cards is pretty nice.

Here’s a small list of cards that are a must for this deck I’m surprised I don’t see:
- Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage would be a must
- Wayfaring Temple
- Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter
- Selesnya Eulogist
- Advent of the Wurm
- Sundering Growth
- Hour of Reckoning
- Phyrexian Rebirth
- Song of the Worldsoul : I stress this card more than any of the others
The two I commented on are musts in in any Trostani deck in my opinion. The others would be strong additions.

Hey, why do you feel you need to play all low mana cards? More low mana cards than anything else is good deck building, but with Trostani you can take real advantage of some high mana creatures.
Armada Wurm for instance can gain you 10 life and puts a 5/5 Wurm token with trample on the battlefield to populate. It's 10 trampling power on the battlefield for six mana. Opponents need an answer for this. It's really the only budget big creature you need because of it's great interaction with Trostani.
Wayfaring Temple grows as you play more creatures and if he connects for combat damage to a player then you populate. Advent of the Wurm is instant 5/5 Wurm with trample good with populate. Trostani Discordant is an anthem for your other creatures and she creates two 2/2 Solider tokens with lifelink to populate. If any of your opponents steal your creatures, gain control of them, then she gives you back control of your creatures.
When casting a lot of low mana creatures then Beast Whisperer is good repeatable draw. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is other repeatable draw when you cast creatures and scry 1 at upkeep is very helpful. Dawn of Hope is repeatable draw when you gain life for the cost of mana. With Trosanti on the battlefield adding an extra two mana to creatures who ETB lets you draw a card. If life gain is what you're after Soul Warden , Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant are great because they care about any creature that ETB including all your opponents creatures. These cards are good with Dawn of Hope for draw.
If combat with weenie creatures is what you want to do then consider Dauntless Escort , Selfless Spirit , Dauntless Bodyguard and Unbreakable Formation ? These cards can protect your creatures from most board wipes and combat. Rancor is good with little creatures and trample for Phyrexian Processor tokens. Spirit Loop is a upgrade for Lifelink. These auras are nice because when the creature enchanted with one of them dies/exiled or an opponent destroys the aura then the aura goes back to your hand.
Swords to Plowshares , Selesnya Charm , Evolution Charm , Dawn Charm are low mana instants that are good in Commander. Charms give you options and when you can realistically only cast a card once then options are excellent.
