With Gaea's Cradle, you definitely need to run Crop Rotation. I organized your deck by converted mana cost and noticed you have quite a number of cards at 5 mana. 16 of them. But you don't have very much ramp to support it. Considering your commander cost 6, and his triggered ability costs 3, you really need to ramp hard in order to have the most successful turns. Plus, landing a big dragon on turn 4 is nothing to scoff at. You've got Selesnya Signet, Gruul Signet, and Boros Signet are good in general. Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone are favorites of mine if you're okay with colorless mana. For a token deck, Cryptolith Rite works wonders. I would cut down on the number of 5 mana cards. Mogg Infestation can be detrimental. Juniper Order Ranger has little impact and doesn't have great impact as time goes on. Conqueror's Pledge is just slow for your deck.

This is a pretty solid list, Keyblade!
The other thing you might want is more cheap disruption against your opponents, so you have ways to interact with their shenanigans without setting yourself behind. Cards like Nature's Claim, Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile are staples that'll let you cast something on your turn and have a single mana up to respond to someone trying to combo out or kill you. Just be sure to tap your mana appropriately.
With many creature tokens ("going wide", or a lot of creatures), you might also want to "go tall", meaning make them bigger. Cards like Cathars' Crusade and Juniper Order Ranger help boost your creatures as they enter the battlefield.
Lastly, since you're combat oriented, cards like Champion of Lambholt, Craterhoof Behemoth, End-Raze Forerunners, or Pathbreaker Ibex will help you break through or bypass your opponents' defenses for the win.
Hopefully that helps!

Midnight Guard or Sunstrike Legionnaire with Presence of Gond makes an infinite token combo. and your Juniper Order Ranger can become infinitely big, even if something causes your creatures to get -1/-1 such as 2 Curse of Death's Hold Juniper still gets infinitely big because the token creature still technically comes out, even if it dies right away and you just need a quick trample push with something such as Rancor. I have many times used the token combo, and simply saying i use gond to tap sunstriker, create a token, untap sunstriker, use gond to tap striker, create a token, and repeat it (drops bag of 5000 beads on the table) this many times, to symbolize the token creatures.

Back at the beginning you'd have found both those cards in the deck including Juniper Order Ranger . The deck has evolved greatly going through I don't know how many revision to this day. I've tried to keep the deck with as few cards with a CMC of 6 or more to a minimum.
I've removed a lot of HVT from the deck using less threatening cards to achieve the same goal just on a smaller scale. No Atraxa and no Ancient. Both cards targeted early. Choice was find an alternative or now start adding in protection taking away from the core of the deck.
I sought out alternatives in the hope of keeping the deck focused.
Thank you for your suggestions.

I've played Ghave for about 7 years now, and I think I have some advice that may be able to help you out. My deck is here, for reference: Ghave: Baby Makin' and Alimony
One thing I notice right off the bat is you have several slower token producers, but none of them are as efficient as Ghave. You also have several sources for +1/+1 counters for Ghave to turn into tokens, but you're missing some very strong ones that I'll recommend now:
Ivy Lane Denizen is extremely good. Unlike Phytohydra, it's not reliant upon combat to make tokens, just the fact that a token entered will allow you to put a counter somewhere, which you can use to make another token. Similarly, Good-Fortune Unicorn , Juniper Order Ranger , and Bloodspore Thrinax are way better at this than several cards you're currently running. Sigil Captain is another solid choice.
I would recommend cutting Phytohydra, Grateful Apparition, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Managorger Hydra, and Phantom Nishoba to add in the above cards, as they'll help you produce tokens way more consistently with just Ghave.
Similarly, you need mana in order to make tokens, so adding in things like Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip and Cryptolith Rite will help your mana production sizably. Seedborn Muse can function like a token doubler, as if you have a source of +1/+1 counters (like Sigil Captain, for example), and only 5 mana, with Seedborn you can produce 20 tokens in a round of turns instead of just 5 (and they'll all be 2/2s at minimum to boot).
Doubling Season and the like are expensive, but Illusionist's Bracers is much, much cheaper and effectively becomes a Doubling Season when attached to Ghave (as you remove 1 +1/+1 counter to make 2 tokens, or sac 1 creature to put 2 +1/+1 counters on something). Definitely worth an include, in my opinion.
To fit in some of the other things mentioned, like Seedborn, Cryptolith Rite, etc., you could probably remove Scute Mob (it does nothing until you have 5 lands), Voldaren Pariah (this is not a great creature), you actually are one card short as Eliminate the Competition is in here twice, and then you could probably cut a Planeswalker as well.
Ghave helms a really fun deck so I hope this helps.

Maybe something like this:
Also works with things like:
Ajani's Welcome or Angelic Chorus or Anointer Priest or Answered Prayers or Essence Warden or Healer of the Pride or Impassioned Orator or Leyline of Vitality or Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant or Suture Priest or Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or Verdant Sun's Avatar | Infinite Life
Genesis Chamber | Infinite tokens
Path of Discovery | Something with graveyard
Altar of the Brood | Infinite mill
Etc... It's a plan, didn't say it was a good plan? Anything here Aluren + should combo off with other stuff, just not sure to what end.

I have also replaced Trostani Discordant with Juniper Order Ranger , because Trostani would actually work against the theme of this deck, whereas the ranger works with it, and I replaced Death Mutation with Putrefy , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.40 to 4.32, and also because that card is an instant, can destroy a greater variety of permanents, and rarely ever will the mutation product a number of tokens sufficient to justify its high mana cost.

Tl;dr: i'd like to play a deck with a persist combo to trigger etb and ltb effects (or similar), but i don't know which is better between Abzan, Jund or WRGB.
Long version to contextualize: my first legendary creature ever was Teneb, the Harvester and i wanted to build something in its colours. Looking for something Abzan does better than others i found out that persist combo has a lot of pieces to work with in that wedge: green and white have a lot of persisting creature, some sacrifice outlet, some tutor and a lot of ways to give +1/+1 counter to creature entering the battlefield; black offers tutors, sacrifice outlets and ETB/LTB triggers. The problem is that abzan doesn't have exactly the best commanders ever. Teneb himself is more of a value oriented beefcake, Karador and Ghave are better in this role, but not exceptional and i'm not familiar with partners.
Jund, on the other side, trades all the nice counter sinergies of white ( Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Juniper Order Ranger , Good-Fortune Unicorn , Vizier of Remedies ) plus Corpse Knight and Cruel Celebrant , for the big bad Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and its cousin Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and everything they bring along such as Grumgully, the Generous and Murderous Redcap .
There's also the option of going WRBG, but it may be too greedy.
Has anyone experience with this kind of deck? If yes, what do you play? If not, what would you like to play? Thanks for your time.
