Cenn's Enlistment Discussion

For a token deck, you don't make very many tokens.
The very best token producer in Pauper is Sprout Swarm. This card is often a win condition in even non-token decks because of how powerful it is. I cannot recommend this card enough.
Battle Screech makes many tokens for very little effort. Fliers are a great bonus, too. This is another one of the best token producers out there.
In terms of card advantage and having a sticky board, Cenn's Enlistment is extremely powerful. It can turn all your late game lands into 1/1s to reinforce your board.
Other decent token producers are Icatian Crier, Maul Splicer (good top-end), Miming Slime (good with pump effects), Penumbra Spider, Raise the Alarm, Scatter the Seeds, Selesnya Evangel, Slime Molding (good with populate), Sporemound, Triplicate Spirits, Wake the Reflections and Walker of the Grove. There are few other good ones, but these see more play.
Ivy Lane Denizen is a great choice for you. Most of the tokens you'll make will be green, which will in turn grow whatever creature you want (or it basically turns all your 1/1s into 2/2s, which is huge).
Rampant Growth could easily be Sakura-Tribe Elder, which is basically the same card but with a 1/1 body for free that you can attack and block with.
I understand you want to maybe cycle them, but Safe Passage can be a big blowout in your favour.
In terms of cuts, I would think about cutting a lot of the non-token stuff. The cards that tap down creatures seem like a good place to start, since ideally you are going wider than your opponent anyways. Ardenvale Tactician and Expose Evil are easy cuts. Next, some of the more vanilla creatures that would be better served as more token producers, like Aven Skirmisher, Healer's Hawk, Faerie Guidemother, Pilgrim's Eye (you don't need this when playing Green), Sedge Scorpion and Voracious Typhon. Then, in your enchantments Bonds of Faith and Squire's Devotion seem like weaker options. For protection spells, you could be doing much better than Flicker of Fate.
I hope some of this helps you!

Updated; may be putting too much stock in Witching Well , but it just seems so solid in this deck. Scry 2, draw 2 for 5 mana is reasonable with how long of games this deck tends to play. Fetching with Mage is solid. May cut one for another Bolt/Skred.
Starting in paper at a new LGS soon, so updates will be forthcoming, especially for the SB. Cenn's Enlistment is definitely a pet card of mine, so forgive me.

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.
Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!

You mentioned in another thread you had tried /R /U /G variants to moderate success, is the same true for /B? My local meta is pretty high in control / mill / burn and being able add 4 Scoured Barrens and swap out Soltari Trooper and Cenn's Enlistment for cards like Syphon Life, Castigate, Raven's Crime or Devour Flesh would be an asset in those matchups.
I'm also pretty curious about Gods Willing over Stave Off. I can see how in a deck with no card manipulation scrying is valuable but losing the soft-counter for Inside Out or Rancor seems questionable.

teddyguru Raise the Alarm isn’t a card this deck wants, since a one time use of two 1/1 Soldier tokens isn’t going to provide inevitability or establish a lock on the board. Cenn's Enlistment simply is a better card in this deck due to being repeatable
