Hey there! I've been working on a list loosely based off of yours and I just wanted to make sure you knew these existed:

Honorable Scout - Icatian Scout - Samite Censer-Bearer

I know you said you'd prefer multi-type creatures that actually do something but it's important to remember that these 1-drop 3-type creatures are essentially Dark Ritual for this commander.

Also, thanks for putting this list together. Saved me a lot of trouble digging for cards!

I really like the deck and how it's built!I think that you've done a great job at creating this deck, you used the best life gain cards for pauper and took advantage of the creatures that follow the strategy using pump spells like Ramosian Rally.One thing I would consider when building a deck like this is that pauper doesn't have any payoff cards for life gain strategies. For example, the modern version of the deck runs Serra Ascendant and Ajani's Pridemate - both cards give an advantage that makes the life gain into an actual threat.Because the pauper format sadly doesn't have any payoff cards for this strategy, I think it's the best to go with a sub theme. Actually, your deck is almost fully themed with this in mind, in my opinion - tokens. Adding this so called "Flavor" to the deck will give you a more solid way to win, especially against decks like turbo fog that doesn't really care about your life total. You already have 6 token themed spells and 6 pump spells, you are already on this path!And lastly, I think it can be great to add a card like Lumithread Field or Veteran Armorer in the sideboard, maybe about 2 or 3 copies? Youres pretty heavy on the artifact and enchantment hate, so maybe a good idea would be to take out 1 Honorable Scout and 1 Patrician's Scorn.Again, I really like how you built the deck and enjoyed trying it out. What do you think about my suggestions? I'm curious to hear ;)
