my only regret is that I have but one upvote to give.
Goblinslide - makes tokens for casting non-creature spells
Mirari - cast things again
Goblin Warrens - sac 2, make 3? with etb triggers? seems legit.
Pentavus turns into an etb trigger
Spawning Pit lets you lose only half your tokens to a board wipe, but they come back as 2/2s
Thopter Assembly becomes stupidly good if you can get rid of thopters fast enough.

I play Shirei built an izzet, rakdos and golgari 60 card deck around 4x copies of him and an EDH deck.
I would cut Doomed Necromancer , who lacks some recursion. Some one drops do the same thing but are 1/1s. Liliana's Shade is a bit unessesary as well. Pilgrim's Eye and Skittering Surveyor do the same thing which are also cheaper. Pentavus is not as good as some others such as Noosegraf Mob .

I am posting a comment because of the Advertise your deck game forum. I can't see shit i would change there may be a few things i would say but I don't know what all synergizes with what. I mean it looks like everything goes together so who knows what taking one thing out does to 20 strategies. I guess though since i play a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck I have a good infinite colorless mana combo that you could use in this deck. It would work wonders with sacrificing. My combo is Ghave, Guru of Spores Ashnod's Altar Parallel Lives Cathars' Crusade you don't need the cathar's crusade but man does it buff everyone fast with the combo. The combo you can use is a little different. You have the token doubler Anointed Procession and Ashnod's Altar so you would need something like Thopter Squadron which you have a thopter card already so you could use them also to sac another similar card is Pentavus all have similar effects to Ghave, Guru of Spores

@apohl13, Absolutely! The thing I love about the list is that it's very flexible and you can remove pieces that are less important to you very easily. Here are some one's I'd recommend looking at if you want to find room for Pentavus
Avalanche Riders - if you don't have much need for land destruction in your meta, this is easily replaceable. It can be a wincon in and of itself, but I know some people really like to avoid LD altogether
Corpse Connoisseur - I go back and forth on this card a lot. Sometimes it's amazing with a recursion engine active, and sometimes it's just an Anger fetcher. Either way, I tend to stick with it cause I like it, but I could see arguments for skipping it.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury - fun card that makes use of your opponent's decks, but isn't necessarily needed. Though he can be a nice backup wincon with infinite mana and a Digger Loop.
Pilgrim's Eye - one of the weaker mana ramp flips.
Hope that gives you some good replacement ideas. And as you mentioned, Kitesail Freebooter isn't a good replacement since you can't abuse the ETB/LTB trigger like you can with Mesmeric Fiend to permanently remove every players hand at instant speed.

After some consideration, I'm pretty sure I also want to put Pentavus in the deck. It's a flippable big creature, and paying 1 for some sac fodder or some fliers just seems real good. The problem is, it doesn't fill the same role as anything else in the deck. Any idea what to replace?

@apohl13, if you're playing in a multiplayer group, then you should be able to leverage the other players' threats to redirect attacks towards them. I've played against a lot of token decks, and typically I can either tutor for an answer with Goblin Matron or Moggcatcher , or I can beat them out by racing to one of my combos.
If you're playing 1v1 or just facing a lot of token aggro, here are some additional protection/hate pieces to help you manage your meta:
Goblin Chainwhirler - one-sided ping effect to remove your opponents' token fliers (assuming they aren't buffed)
Judith, the Scourge Diva - additional pings for all of your sacs
Pentavus - provides fliers of your own
Night Incarnate - board wipe that can be repeatedly called on, though it will kill most of your things too
Hopes that gives you some good ideas!
