Juniper Order Ranger Discussion

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.

Took a quick look and I'd recommend Juniper Order Ranger over either of those two. It does have a slightly higher cmc but it powers up everything you play after he hits the board

So I was surprised to see Vizier of Remedies and not Melira, Sylvok Outcast . In that same vein, I am not sure about the -1/-1 counter synergies ( Flourishing Defenses ), especially if you double down on preventing -1/-1 counters like my last sentence. I think I would rather see Inspiring Call in that slot, or at least in the deck somewhere. I see 28 non-token creatures in the deck 29 with Ghave. Perhaps Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit could be a Juniper Order Ranger and Prowess of the Fair could be a Woodfall Primus . Lastly, I see an infinite combo with Devoted Druid , Ghave, Guru of Spores , and Vizier of Remedies and that you have Blood Artist , perhaps you could run Zulaport Cutthroat or Corpse Knight to work with that aspect.
That said I like where you are going with the deck. I am always a giant proponent of removal and of course feel there could be more, but I have made enough suggestions for now.

more persist creatures like Lesser Masticore can help fuel your strategy when you have some ways to reset the persist counter.
