yo my homie i found some stuff last night. just wanted to throw them out there so i didnt forget.Bloodspore Thrinax this guy looked solid, Broodmate Dragon 4/4 tokens are where it's at. Xenagos, the Reveler looks to be an improved version of Nissa, Vital Force but like i said i have that one already. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest i like the sound of each creature. Death's Presence. Primal Vigor im sure you saw, probably a little too pricey for what we're goin for. Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper 3/1's would be pretty gnarly. This one out of the new set looks okay Vizier of the Menagerie not bad.. maybe a random heavy hitter Siege Behemoth pretty nasty.

mad_hatter_md01, are you offering to make a donation? (;
Top four changes would be Bloodspore Thrinax, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan. Those are the ones that would really oil the gears in this deck. They'd probably go in for things like Vein Drinker and Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Curse of Stalked Prey, Skirsdag Cultist, and so forth.
Past that, it's really up to you. Doubling Season, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Atarka's Command, Damnation, Sarkhan Vol...just whatever floats your boat. They wouldn't be in my ideal deck, necessarily, but you can certainly find ways to spend money on a counters-and-tokens-and-reanimation build.
Hope that helps answer your question. Let me know if I can clarify. Cheers!

There are 6 cards that each let you directly convert mana into creature tokens at a 1=1 ratio.
Any one of these cards with your commander, and you can make as many tokens as you have mana, turn after turn after turn. I would strongly suggest running all six, as that maximizes the chances of having one in your opening hand, and of drawing a replacement if one should meet an untimely end.
Any one of the above-mentioned "Six Keys" will go infinite with your Ashnod's Altar, but if you want to pursue having them go infinite I would recommend also adding an Earthcraft. It is fantastic mana ramp by itself, similar to your Cryptolith Rite, but allowing you to tap creatures the turn they come into play, thus giving you your mana sooner, and enabling infinite combos.
Geralf's Messenger deals infinite loss of life when combined with your altar and your commander, and can otherwise be exploited as a token generator.
Since you run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, you could always add in a Triskelion for an infinite damage combo that does not rely upon your commander. Slotting in Tooth and Nail to fetch them out together makes for a nice single card wincon. (Triskelion would slot in nicely for Walking Ballista maybe)
Sacrifice effects are amazing in this deck, and a Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact can give you control of the game. The one I would really recommend, however, is Martyr's Bond, as it bring retribution for any permanent of yours that is destroyed, while still working as a field wipe as you sac creatures.
Deathreap Ritual and Smothering Abomination lets you receive good card draw when you sacrifice tokens, and Eldrazi Monument give all your creatures Flying, Indestructible, and +1/+1, at the cost of 1 token per turn.

Squirrel_of_War thank for taking the time. Ill agree with you on Hell's Caretaker and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. They both don't really fit in the deck. Blightsteel Colossus is in there to support the infect strategy and is pretty easy to cast when i get infinite mana. The main strategy is to create an infinite loop with a sac outlet and a persist creature. Bloodspore Thrinax along with Melira, Sylvok Outcast are main combo pieces that act as alternates to Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest if he doesn't stick on the field. Gyre Sage is going in as soon as i get my hand on one, same for Swarmyard and Kalonian Hydra. I never heard of Blighted Fen before so thanks for bringing that one up! I love the flavor and it fits the theme so definitly going in.

Some cards that cone to mind right away:
- Crop Rotation
- Marsh Flats
- Misty Rainforest
- Windswept Heath
- Myriad Landscape
- Blighted Woodland
- Blighted Fen
- Dust Bowl
- Eldritch Evolution
- Mutilate + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Some things from the maybe board that really need to go in would be:
- Kalonian Hydra, if it sticks, you win.
- Gyre Sage, huge mana maker.
- Swarmyard, protect your bug-wizard!
Some cards I would remove:
- Hell's Caretaker, does nothing unless he sticks around a full turn, easy to kill, can only use during upkeep.
- Blightsteel Colossus, great card but in this deck he just doesn't fit the theme as well as some other choices.
- Bloodspore Thrinax, decent card but there are better options for the slot.
- Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, underwhelming.

Hi there! I've played Ghave since I started in Commander probably 4 years ago, and I've got some suggestions for you:
Recruiter of the Guard and Birthing Pod would probably serve you better than Diabolic Tutor and Primal Vigor (Recruiter can find Academy Rector, which finds Doubling Season if you require it to combo out, ergo, you don't need as many redundant doubling effects). Parallel Lives could go if you'd prefer to keep Vigor, though, as Lives doesn't really work in too many of the 3-card combos by itself (off top of my head, it only goes infinite with Ghave and Ashnod's Altar, Ghave and Earthcraft, and Ghave and Phyrexian Altar, just like Illusionist's Bracers). Anyway, Recruiter is insane, run him for sure since he finds all but 5 creatures in the deck.
Corpsejack Menace isn't as good as Bloodspore Thrinax. Menace doesn't enable any 3 card combos, while Thrinax can by sacrificing one token (he goes infinite with Ghave and one of Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Earthcraft). Ivy Lane Denizen is also just kind of a worse Champion of Lambholt, for whatever that's worth.
Try Devoted Druid over Chromatic Lantern or Coalition Relic. On that mana base, you're not really going to be strapped for colors and Druid goes infinite with Cathar's Crusade as -1/-1 counters and +1/+1 counters cancel out (which also means infinite tokens by casting Ghave).
That's about it. I always love Ghave decks, so make sure to have fun with it.
