I'd say it depends a lot on the type of riding you're gonna do. I'm 175cm and 75kg on a 56 YES Greats (2016). It was mostly perfect for me, but I definitely had some trouble in powder.

The Greats is not really a powder board. It's an asymmetrical twin, more at home in the freestyle world. The 156 should be fine for your specs.

Should I get 154 or 156

Hi snowboard gurus. Sales are on and I can grab a 2017 Greats half price. I'm torn between sizes 154 and 156 though.
I consider myself an intermediate+ rider, 5'10" 165 lbs and size 9 Nike Kaiju boot. Other boards in my quiver are 157 TRS, 158 T.Rice Goldmember and 160.5 Burton Antler. I want a freestyle board to learn and progress in jumps, spins and butters. I also read on here that The Greats is smaller than advertised size and that 154 has a reference stance 22.5" as oppose to advertised 23"? Can anyone confirm that? Looking forward to hearing your input.

Don't know about 54, but my 56 is at 23" from the 3rd outermost slots.

Yes! Keep this thread alive. If boot size is the deciding factor for you, you'll be fine on either as long as you keep it duck stance.
