Bloodspore Thrinax Discussion

For additional token generation we would recommend Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Kazandu Tuskcaller, Imperious Perfect, Avenger of Zendikar, Ant Queen, Living Hive, Beacon of Creation and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury.
Aside from these things, we would also recommend Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Krosan Grip and/or Aura Shards for some more control. Maybe some additional draw options like Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Slate of Ancestry and Beacon of Creation.
For any further ideas, feel free to check out our Rhys deck. Good luck and have fun.

So, just to give some context from where my advice stems: I've played Ghave for 6 years now and it's easily one of my favorite decks. I play full-on combo Ghave, but I used to play fair token overrun Ghave. My deck list is here if you need a reference for any combos I mention today: Ghave: Baby Makin' and Alimony
Ghave works as a fantastic token generation engine, where 1 mana = 1 token. You don't normally get that much benefit out of your token producers, with basically all of the saproling makers take so many turns that they're too slow to overrun efficiently. Things like Mazirek are great if you have doublers down, but Cathars' Crusade is missing and it requires you jump through fewer hoops- make 1 token, make everything but 1 creature on your side of the board huge. Cathars' Crusade is one of the best cards in the archetype, I strongly suggest running it.
In similar vein, Ivy Lane Denizen, Bloodspore Thrinax, Juniper Order Ranger, among other cards, also go infinite with Ashnod's Altar for infinite mana and tokens (you make 1 token, get a new counter. Pay another to remove that counter, make a new token, obtaining another counter. Sac the first creature to get your 2 mana back and have a new token. Repeat this for infinite colorless mana, and because you have infinite colorless mana and 1 mana = 1 token, you now have infinite tokens), not to mention the aforementioned cards are just good in the deck because they let you generate tokens more efficiently.
Undying creatures are also phenomenal at producing Saproling tokens with Ghave. While not saprolings themselves, you'll be able to produce tons of them efficiently using cards like Young Wolf, Butcher Ghoul, Geralf's Messenger, and the like. Again, Ashnod's Altar + any of those + Ghave = infinite tokens too (you sac the Undying creature for mana in this loop, then pay 1 of the 2 mana you get to remove the counter from it, resetting the Undying creature).
For fair Ghave, there's nothing better than Seedborn Muse. Ivorytusk Fortress isn't bad, but Muse untaps all of your lands which lets you make more tokens on opponents turns, effectively becoming a Gaea's Cradle if you have a counters source on field (because if you have 5 mana, you obtain 15 extra tokens if you have 3 opponents. Not to mention you can cast instants on opposing turns as well).
Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip should probably be in here as well. It's not a bad card at all, and it and Cryptolith Rite can help you make absurd amounts of mana so you can go from 10 tokens to 20, then to 40, then to 80 in just a couple of turns without even needing Doubling Season.
I recommend cutting the following for some of the above cards:
Life and Limb is just worse Cryptolith Rite, now, in that it lets your opponents board wipe your lands. Cryptolith lets your tokens tap for any color of mana at half the mana cost, so it seems like a reasonable swap without the downside of losing lands to a Wrath of God.
Dark Heart of the Wood isn't great, especially without Life and Limb. Cutting that for Growing Rites or any of the aforementioned cards would help a lot. I don't feel it necessary to run all of Gravity Well, Raking Canopy, and Downdraft. I'd at least cut Downdraft. Druidic Satchel isn't the greatest, and practically any card above will make tokens better.
Flash Foliage should probably be Beast Within or Anguished Unmaking, as blocking a big creature once isn't that great, but being able to remove literally any troublesome permanent (and 3/3 beasts aren't a big deal) or being able to exile a troublesome nonland permanent is pretty awesome.
Anyway, hope this helps. I tried not recommending you cut any of your spore counter guys because they're probably your theme, but the above cards will definitely help you along quite well, so try to squeeze them in where you can (and small confession: I have a bit of a soft spot for Thallid, Sporesower Thallid, and Sporoloth Ancient. One of my first Magic decks was a spore counters deck using all of those guys from Time Spiral block + Opposition to lock my opponents down, lol). On the subject of opposition, though, maybe Glare of Subdual might be a card you like to swap out Flash Foliage for? If you regularly have the most creatures at the table, just tap everybody down so no one gets to attack but you. That's always fun.
Anyway, I'm out, have fun!

Nice deck! You might consider some haste-enablers such as Anger, Bloodsworn Steward, Xenagos, God of Revels, Fervor, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, Lightning Greaves, or Fires of Yavimaya to get huge amounts of burst damage with Prossh and OTK opponents out of nowhere. Also with the amount of tokens you generate, cards that have synergy with armies of tokens (e.g. Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Harvest Season, and Second Harvest) could be very effective, especially if you area able to curve out with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season into Prossh the next turn. Also, cards that can turn your many tokens into mana could have a lot of potential as well. You've already included Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , but the addition of Ashnod's Altar, Thermopod, Pawn of Ulamog Cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Heroic Intervention, Damnation, Crux of Fate, Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could provide the the deck with additional consistency, utility, and power. If you wnt to add another mana-doubling card, Mana Reflection would fill that role. It looks as if you have a bit of a 'sacrifice stuff' subtheme as well, so more cards to add for that could be Barter in Blood, Birthing Pod, Blood Divination Attrition, Awakening Zone, Bloodspore Thrinax, Disciple of Bolas, Eliminate the Competition, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sadistic Hypnotist, Goblin Bombardment, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Other considerations might be Sprouting Thrinax, Goblin Sharpshooter, Atarka, World Render, Grave Titan, Oracle of Mul Daya, Dragonlair Spider, Stalking Vengeance, Tempt with Vengeance, Xenagos, the Reveler, Poison-Tip Archer, Avenger of Zendikar, Fecundity, and Pitiless Plunderer. Those are just a few suggestions, and good luck with the deck!

I really like Bloodspore Thrinax, I think it would work very well here.

Hour of Promise or Pir's Whim in place of Solemn Simulacrum. Horn of Greed for land-based card draw. Skullclamp could let you draw from the small tokens. Garruk's Packleader and Elemental Bond let you draw from the big ones. Deathreap Ritual and Smothering Abomination lets you draw from sacrificing tokens. Shamanic Revelation draws lots of cards and gains you life. Symbiotic Deployment works too.
Sporemound makes tokens from landfall and goes infinite with Life and Limb. Dunes of the Dead and Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai are lands that make tokens when they are sacrificed. Helm of the Host is great when equipped to creatures that make tokens. Blade of Selves might work too. Nacatl War-Pride is really strong with token doublers.
Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Mana Echoes, and Xenagos, the Reveler will generate a lot of mana from tokens. Druids' Repository adds mana when they attack, and Pitiless Plunderer adds mana when they die.
