Spawning Pit is a bit clunky/slow. Given that you already have a sufficient number of sac outlets already there are definitely some more efficient cards to run (some of which have already been listed above).
You also have a lot of cards to take advantage of token creatures but not a lot of cards to generate creature tokens. Fungal Sprouting, Increasing Devotion, Saproling Migration, Rhys the Redeemed, Geist-Honored Monk, Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Mycoloth, Noosegraf Mob, Tendershoot Dryad, and Twilight Drover are some solid options in addition to what has already been suggested above.
Also, if going the token creature route, there isnt a better board wipe than Hour of Reckoning
Ghave was my first commander deck and is still one of my favorites. Always enjoy seeing other peoples take on him.

Looks like a fun deck! A few things, you're really going to want to address the mana base, you're heavier on the white than green, so I'd run more white sources than green. Lands like Horizon Canopy, Fortified Village, and Temple of Plenty are great budget lands. Since you're running 6 drops, I would strongly recommend going up to 24 lands as well.
Some soldiers to consider would be
Thraben Inspector, great stats for the cost and the clue lets you replace her whenever you need to.
Thraben Standard Bearer, which just lets you turn dead cards into soldiers.
Thalia, Heretic Cathar Fantastic soldier that can mess up your opponents plans and let you win.
Sergeant-at-Arms the versatility this guy offers is very nice.
Archetype of Courage is a kind of pseudo-lord
Sunblade Elf A cheap soldier that turns into an anthem later in the game
Bishop of Rebirth while not a soldier, allows you to return your dead soldiers to life
Other cards to consider
Elspeth, Sun's Champion a bit pricey, but an incredible game ender
Elspeth, Knight-Errant the Sun's Champion's little sister
Declaration in Stone Removal is pretty important to staying alive and winning the game.
Ulvenwald Mysteries A card that punishes your opponent for killing your dudes and refills your board
Harmonize Straight up card draw
Heroic Intervention Save your dudes
Ajani Unyielding His plus will almost always get you at least one thing, and his other two abilities are good too
Hope this was a little helpful

To be honest almost none of your 4 drops measure up to Saskia, so feel free to cut any of them except for Whip of Erebos
Cards like Ghostly Prison don't really seem to fit well into your game plan.
Try adding some scaling 1 and 2 drops like Experiment One, Scute Mob, Gyre Sage, Signal Pest, (and any of the 2 drop battlecry) Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Precinct Captain, Voice of Resurgence, Akroan Hoplite, Hanweir Militia Captain Flip

It appears the point of this deck is lots of creatures, with lots of creature synergy. I would cut Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Children of Korlis, Intrepid Hero, and Mentor of the Meek, as they may be good, but they do nothing to serve the goal of the deck. In their place add stuff like True Conviction, and some more mana rocks, as you have a pretty demanding mana base, but not enough ramp. Add stuff like Pearl Medallion, Ruby Medallion, Boros Signet, and even Mana Crypt if you can afford it. Another must have is Ashnod's Altar. This deck will make a ton of creatures, so why not sac some to make even bigger creatures! PUT THIS CARD IN! I would consider, if you can, keeping Crusader of Odric as well as Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, as thye work so well together, however, cut the crusader over the captain. Another thing to consider cutting is Ballyrush Banneret, as it takes up a whole card slot for an ability that is only mediocre if you are not playing kithkin, plus, most of your big stuff are angels.

Onward to victory! +1 for awesome description! Have you thought about maybe adding Hanweir Militia Captain Flip? I looked the card up to see what its color identity was and its mono white only even when it flips. You also can use the tokens it produces as its not against the commander rules.

I like the idea of the deck and I think it's pretty solid but have you considered Hanweir Militia Captain Flip? If you do get the transform trigger you have a lot of humans entering the field as well as a lot of humans to sacrifice to Westvale Abbey Flip

I'd run the deck closer to a soul sisters deck. Here is the decklist I'd run:
4x Soul Warden
Something like that, it would be cleric heavy soul sisters, but lifegain and tokens too.
