I recommend Lingering Souls over Hexdrinker - you can discard it to Liliana of the Veil and still cast it from the graveyard.

I am working on the abzan equivalent of this list. It uses Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa to utilize cheap threats such as Mindblade Render or Oakhame Adversary for card advantage, while utilizing Green's addition of a few valuable pieces of removal, such as Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy.

The current Legacy version often uses a mix of Sevinne's Reclamation, Lingering Souls, Dark Confidant, and Stoneforge Mystic style finishes, almost all of which fit well in this strategy. Umezawa's Jitte would just end games!

I made a BW tokens deck too, but only using spirits. Since you also use other kind of tokens, I think Bitterblossom would be great.

Also, Selfless Spirit can be amazing if combined with Day of Judgment and similar cards: while you wipe your opponent's whole board, your army of tokens will remain intact and ready to strike.

You already run Lingering Souls and Spectral Procession, which I think are the best, but other similar cards are Midnight Haunting and Triplicate Spirits. But you probably already knew those ones.

Anyway, people in the comment section of my deck gave me some good suggestions that you could probably use too, take a look if you want.

Possibly add black for Lingering Souls and better sideboard tech. Also Battle Screech and Force of Virtue seem good in here.

With the way your deck is evolving, it is starting to look more and more like an orzhov smallpox list. Some stuff I would say about that is that you really need to make sure smallpox doesn't end up being card disadvantage for you, because in most cases, its just card disadvantage or break even. To do that, you need to maximize your Flagstones of Trokair and Bloodghast type cards. I'd run the full 4 Lingering Souls because of that. Also, a card thats worth looking at is Fetid Heath to fix your mana since you have black cards like Liliana of the Veil and Smallpox, which can be awkward to get out with lands like Flagstones of Trokair out. most smallpox decks run 4 Liliana of the Veil, but Cabal Therapist may fill some of the role it does, I don't know though. One last thing that I would say is that Vengeful Pharaoh is a card that seems to slot into smallpox, but no one ever seems to include.

hope this helps.

Lingering Souls isn't really that great unless you have the ability to flash it back. A couple Godless Shrines would go a long way.

too strong:

Balance

Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis

Pathrazer of Ulamog

Artisan of Kozilek

Lodestone Golem

Daze

Contract from Below (ummm... what?? this is too strong and the ante doesnt exist to balance it)

Hymn to Tourach

Animate Dead

Channel

concerning:

Feather, the Redeemed

Winding Constrictor

Manifold Key

Ulamog's Crusher

Ichorclaw Myr (colorless infect)

Myr Galvanizer

Bounding Krasis

Unburial Rites

Mother of Runes

Archetype of Courage

Village Bell-Ringer

Sun Titan (probably fine)

Porcelain Legionnaire (cheap first strike, hard to kill in reasonable time without using removal spell on a 2 drop)

Battle Screech (or Lingering Souls/Spectral Procession) too many of this effect (too many flying tokens I think)

Winds of Abandon game ending 1 sided wrath (probably just too strong)

Mana Tithe fine card, but not sure why white has counter spells

Peregrine Drake probably fine, but just worth watching for overly easy infinites

Etherium Sculptor potentially too many artifact synergy cards like this in the cube (artifacts might be one of the most well supported archetypes)

Brain Freeze (not really supported?)

Snap again potential infinite mana

Exhume

Tainted Strike/Phyresis Infect is potentially too strong

Feldon of the Third Path potentially degenerate?

Flameshadow Conjuring (goes infinite with multiple creatures with an iron myr)

Golgari Grave-Troll maybe fine

Sprout Swarm (I've seen this card be silly, but its probably fine)

Groundswell/Scale Up (with infect)
