Also think about Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies to really start buffing up your creatures.

You can use Urza's Incubator to make your deck a bit quicker.

Cover of Darkness gives a creature type fear.

Steely Resolve gives a creature type shroud.

I love treefolk! Good luck!

if your are looking for card draw Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, and Ob Nixilis Reignited are good choices. i would focus on what creatures work the best and move them up to playsets, having just one of a bunch of things can make the deck inconsistent. i would also up the lands to 22 or so. if your curve was smaller you could get away with 18 lands. i would also put in Door of Destinies, it will make your rats huge.

The lands listed above are good start. Another cheap option is Blossoming Sands, slower but it has a little lifegain which is always great in these colors. Some other options include Thragtusk, great card with lifegain and a token when he dies, not to mention a 5/4 body when living. Add Cloudshift, Conjurer's Closet and Restoration Angel and you can flicker in and out of the battlefield for repeated value. Good synergy with Centaur Healer I saw you have on your list.

Another option you could do, edh or even a 60 card deck is human tribal. Put in Descendent's Path, Door of Destinies, Cathars' Crusade, etc. There are tons of humans, both as creatures and token generators, Attended Knight, Champion of the Parish, Champion of Lambholt, in white/green; here's a way to start searching if interested:[human]+[Creature]||subtype=+[human]||text=+[human]&color=+@([W]|[G])

Many of them are pretty budget friendly. Could use Sigarda, Heron's Grace as a commander or finisher as well.

DiamondBrook, isn't Door of Destinies sort of weak because putting the snake tokens into play isn't casting a spell? Unless you stock the deck with other snake creatures to make it work, I suppose.

Alcyone2, good point, as I understand the rules, that card is not permitted under this commander.

Remember to link all cards in your question.

Door of Destinies
Ishkanah, Grafwidow

Firstly, a clarification - Ishkanah's Delirium ability doesn't activate, it triggers.

Tokens will not trigger the Door's ability since you're never casting a spell of the chosen creature type (unless you're casting a Tribal spell like Elvish Promenade if you chose Elves, in which case it'd trigger once from you casting one Elf spell). Ishkanah herself would trigger the Door if you chose Spider as the creature type, but the tokens will not.

Door of Destinies
Ishkanah, Grafwidow

First, delirium in this case is not related to an activated ability. Only activated abilities are activated. Ishkanah, Grafwidow has a triggered ability that also has a replacement effect if delirium is true.

To answer your real question, no. As someone posted in your other Door of Destinies question, Door's ability only triggers when you cast a spell of the chosen type. Tokens can never be cast; they're created on the battlefield and cease to exist in other zones. They cannot be spells.

Please remember to link the cards in question: Door of Destinies, Conjurer's Closet

Door of Destinies only gets a counter when a spell of the chosen type is cast, not whenever a creature enters the battlefield. Because Conjurer's Closet is simply exiling and returning a creature, not casting it, you won't get another counter.
