Do you mean: how to delete or alter columns of an existing table that you created as part of your migration? If so, just add an extra migration step to your migrations class and use the AlterTable method of the SchemaBuilder. It works like CreateTable, but you'll be provided with different methods like DropColumn to drop a column, WithName to change the name, and an AlterColumn method to do more stuff.

                .AlterTable("MyTable", table => {
                    table.DropColumn("MyColumn"); // Drop a column
                    table.AddColumn<int>("NewColumn"); // Add a column
                    table.AlterColumn("AnotherColumn", c => c.WithType(DbType.Int64)); // change type of column
