Creature — Insect
Defender (This creature can't attack.)
Whenever Hornet Nest is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch onto the battlefield. (Any amount of damage a creature with deathtouch deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

Hornet Nest Discussion

0/10: clear theme, no jank : )
Some semi-budget suggestions:
Camaraderie could be sick card draw.
Emrakul's Evangel could upgrade 1/1 tokens.
Phyrexian Rebirth consolidates power and is good to populate, but leaves you vulnerable to a single kill spell.
Skittering Invasion might be good in some situations, if you can copy the tokens and use them as mana receptacles.

I would definitely recommend Hornet Nest. It gets overlooked because it's a 0/2 Defender. But Hornet Nest’s triggered ability will trigger even if it’s dealt lethal damage. For example, if it’s dealt 7 damage, its ability will trigger and you’ll put seven Insect creature tokens onto the battlefield with Flying and Deathtouch.

carpecanum thanks for the suggestions Aspect of Mongoose will be very helpful as will Hornet Nest. I had Wave of Reckoning in but i realized it was just one board wipe too many, and Sight of the Scalelords seems like too high a price for it's usefulness.

Hornet Nest can be very useful

If you're open to suggestions Starstorm seems like a good inclusion. Tunable mass removal that won't hit your high toughness creatures, deals damage for Hornet Nest, instant speed for tricks, plus it even has cycling for when it's not relevant. Also I'd try to add more ramp, card draw, and walls with reach. In fact I would include every wall with reach.

@busido_man96 For vampire nighthawk I do think he is a nice creature but something like Hornet Nest it can provide a lot more deathtouchers or Liliana's Reaver which is a stronger creature that has an effect that also generates blockers you could pitch to your sac engines in a pinch. A sabertooth doesn't help a ton with your edict effects imo. When you drop an edict you HAVE to sacrifice which without more token generators can start to kill your commander or field. If you want to keep the repeatable edicts maybe try things that don't mind dying like Seedguide Ash, Solemn Simulacrum, or Yavimaya Elder. I can understand about wurmcoil I don't want to drop that price either maybe replace it with something better like an Avenger of Zendikar if you are doing good on land grab or maybe a Sheoldred, Whispering One which is only one mana more than scuttling and triggers your commander and resurrects your stuff

You could swap out the instants and sorceries so Vaevictis has a higher success rate.
Engulfing Slagwurm is great to block any troublesome creature, or attack with it and force opponents to block. Flameblade Angel burns opponents when they attack or block you. Hornet Nest can give you lots of deadly tokens when opponents attack you. Dinosaurs with enrage like Polyraptor, Ripjaw Raptor, and Silverclad Ferocidons could be helpful.
Similarly, Phyrexian Obliterator, Vengeful Pharaoh, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Dread, with the Pharaoh being great to sacrifice to Vaevictis since it comes back, and Mikaeus bringing almost all your creatures back again. Vigor just protects all your creatures from combat damage and makes them even bigger.
