Some very outdated replies below. Thanks for your input everyone!
gabrielguieiro, I had a go with Gift of Orzhova but I found it to be a little slow. All my other enchantments cost 1 and I prefer the speed. However it is excellent later in the game to make more flyers when I need them. The evasion sometimes makes all the difference.
Hey festerfizzle. I'd prefer to have Tithe Drinker over Putrid Warrior because the extort often gets used multiple times per turn, and where the opponent loses the life, I gain it. It also has lifelink too. If you're making a similar deck, one playset of creatures is probably enough as creatures can be cast more reliably.
eyessky, my deck also fares poorly against burn. If they're tapped out early and I can cast a lifelinker and enchant it enough in one turn so it's too big to kill with a few burn spells, I might stand a chance. But by game 2 they'll catch on and leave some lands untapped and I'll have trouble retaining my creatures. I side in Pay No Heed and Castigate against burn players, but that's all I've got. It helps a little. Ideally, you should use some Circle of Protection: Red. That's your best bet. I rarely encounter pauper burn though, so my sideboard doesn't have it.

Always apreciate a tokens list :)
Also as much as I love Baneslayer Angel running any creature in a tokens deck is usually a bad idea, as it makes our opponents removal actually do something.

Cool deck! I think one of the biggest edges your deck will need is some form of card advantage so that you can get a bunch of creatures out as soon as possible. Black is a good color for this and you can run Altar's Reap which is consistent with the sacrifice theme. Also, Dusk Legion Zealot should be in here. See if you can make room - if not maybe think about replacing Doomed Traveler, which hurts I know.
Let's talk about some cards that could probably be swapped out. I'm not sure 4x copies of your legend is necessary, I'd go down to 3x. You don't want both in your hand at the same time, unless you're sacking her -- play test it. Erase should absolutely be moved to the sideboard as a 2 or 3x, or replaced - more on that later. Rally the Ancestors also looks like a cute trick, but I'd favor cards that can be played under any condition. Dusk / Dawn might be a better option as it can both wipe the board (at which point you can sac any creatures), and then return them later in the game.
Let's talk sideboard: for WB creature decks, I think a 2x or 3x of Zealous Persecution is pretty sweet. It can wipe out other weenies/tokens, while buffing yours for a final swing. Include some hand disruption - Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, Castigate, Thoughtseize - depending on budget.

For the lands, since you don't want to spend money on Flooded Strand, Hallowed Fountain, Polluted Delta or Mystic Gate, I think you have chosen the best ones.
Then, I'd remove Think Twice and add Serum Visions, reduce up to 2 Supreme Verdict (put another one in side maybe) and add some Mana Leak (Remand and Cryptic Command would be other good counters, but they are too expensive, right?).
I'm not sure how Sphinx's Revelation could be a win-con. Having more life than an opponent (and less cards in the deck!) isn't always synonym of victory. Then just one Elspeth, Sun's Champion isn't enough. What if an opponent maages to kill her?
I really can't understand why Esper Charm is there: probably you won't need it's first ability since you have counters (and cards in sideboard), second ability is just and Opt or Serum Visions that costs too much and third is, basically, Inquisition of Kozilek or even Castigate / Thoughtseize / Raven's Crime that needs 3 specifical mana to be used.
Secure the Wastes is a win-con if used in token decks that use also Intangible Virtue, Honor of the Pure, Zealous Persecution and Vault of the Archangel. Now it's used only as a 1/1 creature spammer.
I'll also consider Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Gideon of the Trials as an alternative win-con.
As for the sideboard I'll just give you some ideas: Tormod's Crypt (if you can afford it maybe also better a Relic of Progenitus or Rest in Peace); 1x Supreme Verdict (if you reduce them up to 2 in main); Kataki, War's Wage or Rest in Peace would be perfect against artifact decks; Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass; Grafdigger's Cage; even, if you want more budget things Blessed Alliance, Negate, Dismember.
Hope my ideas could help the development of your deck.

@mean_green_machine, the main reason I run Basilica Screechers over more Mourning Thrulls is for the Extort, which can help get that bit of reach you sometimes need. Another reason is because they don't die to Electrickery and other 1 damage sweepers. Considering the current meta, I think that's pretty important.
Beckon Apparition I've really liked for a few good matchups. Against Reanimator, you shut down their main gameplan. Against Stompy, Aristocrats, or similar decks, Undying creatures lose most of their value. Against Control, key flashback cards get neutered, such as Mystical Teachings or Forbidden Alchemy. Not to mention, the token is a flier and both white and black, so good for Edge of the Divinity.
I've been considering Castigate for a while now, but I'm just running the list as is while the meta is how it is now.
Thanks so much for your feedback and suggestions!! :)

I play this deck. I like the nights wisper idea, i might play them. I don't like basilica screech or beacon they're both flying men and they dont have lifelink for edge fun, I like thrull better than them for that reason. I also play Castigate It's awesome, thoughtseize for one more plus it exiles and triggers nightsky.

Here are some ideas for the defensive options you mentioned:
For this type of deck, Exsanguinate can be another good aggressive card / finisher.
There are a couple cards that I would consider removing:

@Pscioed, I've been liking Pillory of the Sleepless in the current meta, due to its aggressive nature. In my first iteration of the deck, I was also running Castigates, but I needed a bit more security in the games I rely on Extort to get there.
