Whenever Broodhatch Nantuko is dealt damage, you may put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens into play.
Morph (2)(Green) (You may play this face down as a 2/2 creature for (3). Turn it face up any time for its morph cost.)

Broodhatch Nantuko Discussion

Solid deck, I like the idea of using devour creatures as a backup for your voltron. Too often I see Voltron decks get shut down because of removal so its good to see some utility backup plans that also require tokens as your commander does.
I could definitely see you putting in some more token generators such as:
Arachnogenesis, Broodhatch Nantuko (remember that although he is a 1/1 that he takes all the damage its assigned as long as the attacking creature doesn't have trample), Hornet Nest is like that, too. Carrion can be used on your devour creatures to switch back to prossh or use to make even bigger devour creatures, since your devour creatures are more than devour 1. also Korozda Guildmage for the same reason. Devastating Summons (Maybe) it would be used mostly for getting that last few damage you need to swing in with commander lethal. Elemental Mastery pairs well with your devour creatures.. just use the elemental tokens to fuel either another devour or your commander. It would be nice to give your commander trample, maybe try Fists of Ironwood? Parallel Lives is an auto include of course. Sylvan Offering works in a pinch as well.
Also Fling needs to go in. You can potentially smash a player with a devour and then fling the creature after combat to another player's face.

See my other comment first!
This deck I was less pleased with when comparing directly with The Poachers. Here's why:
Your description for the deck refers to Africa, like the whole continent. Yet only 16 creatures showed up to the party to band together. I'd really like to see this as a mono-green beast token deck with Garruk Wildspeaker or Soul of Zendikar as the feature card.
Suggestions if you go that route to get you started: Beast Within, Pulse of the Tangle, Thragtusk, Vitality Charm, Ant Queen, Broodhatch Nantuko, Hornet Nest, Keeper of the Beasts, Trial of Strength, Words of Wilding.
I only playtested the decks once but this one feels much stronger than the other one. The Poachers should be answers from hunters and land from the guides. But there is few answers to three copies of Scaled Behemoth unless the opponent has resolved a one-of Glaring Spotlight.
This all said, a few large creatures against a group of hunters would be cool to but then The Poacherswill have to be strengthened.

Few comments (finally)
Remove the following:
Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist etc - Unless you are comboing out or sacing 3+ a turn regularly they are a bit slow Blood Artist being the better
Broodhatch Nantuko, Bramblewood Paragon, Hornet Nest, Saber Ants, Spike Breeder are all a bit too cute unless you are planning to abuse them.
From Beyond - If you put in an eldrazi this would work a lot nicer It That Betrays is okay for this. (and cheep)
Malevolent Awakening - Bit slow
Barter in Blood - Better to go for a creature based Fleshbag Marauder can be recured.
Also a few things to look at : Greater Good, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Pox, smokestacks, Also worth looking into a few keywords - Morbid (Tragic Slip) - Threshold - Revolt -
I got a few pieces btw too:Pox - Yavimaya Elder - Sakura-Tribe Elder - Ashnod's Altar - Death Cloud - Harrow - Reyhan, Last of the Abzan - and I know sammy has a few too

I think the goal of this desk should be to focus on making insect tokens. So some suggestions I would give you are Hornet Queen, Saber Ants, Broodhatch Nantuko, Hornet Nest, and Beacon of Creation. I would get rid of cards that don't really have to do anything with it. So get rid of Forgotten Ancient and Wall of Blossoms.Then you need some Overrun sort of effects to win with your token army. So Garruk Wildspeaker, more copies of Overwhelming Stampede, or Triumph of the Hordes. You could also try artifacts like Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms or Eldrazi Monument. Finally you have too many big creatures. Honestly you could even get rid of most of them and just put more copies of Vorapede in. If you're worried about running out of cards you can always get some Harmonize.
Hope this helps.

Nice decklist! I somehow missed Broodhatch Nantuko in my Morphzuri deck, I'm going to need to get a copy of that. Feel free to check out my list, there's a few additional things you might find useful to add to this build.

The cards which look old aren't modern legal.
Wrap in Vigor (as sideboard tech)
Oh, and don't not put Hornet Queen in there!

First of all thank you for all the support and ideas!
geekmp3 The deck has been doing very well in my current scene, and while I don't think it can ever stand in the same league as a 1,000 dollar EDH power deck (which rotate the local shops I play at), it can sill hold its own. and within the smaller group of 4-5 friends that i play with regularly, it seems to win a good 40-50% of the time. That meta has shifted to include Rakdos Charm and other token punishers just to deal with me, and if Basalt Monolith or Wort, the Raidmother ever hit the field then I am immediately the focus target of the board..... so I'd say its a pretty big success!
MsSysbitThank you for all the input! Verdeloth the Ancient and Thelonite Hermit were actually in my original list of idea cards but I decided to scrub them simply because of the lack of saproling love elsewhere. It seemed to limit the deck in a weird way... and funny thing is I originally was going to include Hornet Nest but traded it out for Broodhatch Nantuko simply to have more than one morph creature in the deck. and while the mind games between that and Hooded Hydra are very fun, I completely agree that the Nest is just strictly better on paper, and i may swap them again. And finally Archetype of Aggression is a card i hadn't even considered (even though i almost included the green hexproof archetype) and it would fit in very nicely! The only hard part is finding something to replace.
Again thank you all for the support; It's nice to see people like my fun weird little EDH ideas!

More reviews of individual cards:
Tangleroot - when creature tokens come in to play for you, they are not a spell being played as they are not coming from your hand. If this card said "Whenever a creature comes into play" it would be great for you, but as it stands it helps opponents too much and I might remove it.
Galvanic Juggernaut - this is really bad, also when all of your creatures are devoured, this happens all at once so you cannot untap/tap a bunch of times.
Giant Adephage would be good in this deck
Regal Force too expensive ($12), probably worth it if he's in a mono-green deck. Think about it, you are creating 0/1 colorless eldrazi tokens a lot of the time, and some red goblins. He wouldn't help with those at all.
Saber Ants and Broodhatch Nantuko - these are OK, but you don't really have a way to deal them damage beyond hoping an opponent will attack you. Blasphemous Act would be troll because it would kill all creatures, THEN you would get 13 tokens.
Soul of the Harvest - this is bad here because you are creating so many tokens--he only gives you card draw when a non-token creature enters.
Zendikar Resurgent is good, but Enchantments can be easily destroyed and this is a quite expensive one. For that mana, I would rather play a spell like Boundless Realms. While we are on the subject of ramp, these are some good cards for you: 1. Cultivate 2. Kodama's Reach 3. Sakura-Tribe Elder 4. Harrow 5. Farhaven Elf 6. Gruul SignetYou should definitely have Sakura Tribe Elder, the Signet, and the others are great as well.
