ZendikariWol: Yuuuuuup. I told my playgroup chat that I was gonna put in Forerunner of the Heralds just to tilt people when they realized there weren't any merfolk in the deck, before I realized that Jadelight Ranger and Merfolk Branchwalker are both scouts, and looking it up, there's like 5-6 more too.

Hey! Saw your deck posted before FLATSO99's and thought I'd comment since I also play Ghave.
First off I assume your goal with this deck is to play "fair" with a go-wide tokens and counters strategy with some options to win with a combo, but I'd like to offer my primer for you to take a look at and borrow anything you like. I go into detail the different combos you can get from Ghave and how they work as well as a list of combos found in my list.

That being said, I have a few suggestions for how you can strengthen the deck even if you're not looking to combo off as soon as you can.
Your mana curve is a bit high, and I think you can cut some of the more mana-heavy cards to trim the deck and let it play more smoothly. For instance I see Butcher of Malakir but no Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact . I understand if it's a budget problem, but I personally run Grave Pact thanks to it's lower cmc. Yes, Martyr's Bond does the same thing and even extends to permanents other than creatures, but I find it's not worth the mana cost. You could probably cut that one, too.
I know you mentioned Walking Ballista , and I eventually cut Triskelion in my own deck for it. It only needs an extra card (either a sac outlet or Blood Artist effect) to combo with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed which will still often be cheaper on the mana to cast than just Triskelion .
Unless you're building the deck around it, I'd cut anything with Landfall. It's almost never worth it if you're not making it a big theme in your deck.
I'm not a fan of Faerie Macabre . There are better cards for graveyard hate. Bojuka Bog comes to mind which you should run if you really need the grave hate. If you're insistent on having a spell fill that slot, Shred Memory is better as it also acts as a tutor for a 2 cmc card.
Pack Rat is unnecessary. I'd focus on the saproling tokens. You'll have better synergy in the deck that way.
I also don't think you're running enough elves to get the most out of Elvish Archdruid . I'd cut that in favor of other ramp. The ramp you have in the deck already is pretty good without him.
I notice you have Kitchen Finks which is an excellent combo piece, but have you considered running any undying creatures (besides the effect of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed )? I highly recommend Young Wolf as he's an easy route to getting as many tokens as you want. Strangleroot Geist or Butcher Ghoul can also be good. You could run more persist creatures if you like as well. I've liked having Puppeteer Clique and Woodfall Primus in my deck since if you can recur them over and over, you get some awesome effects. If you want cheap ones to play, Safehold Elite is a possibility, and Modern Masters now has Putrid Goblin which is basically Butcher Ghoul but with persist instead of undying.
Protean Hulk has been the center of most of my wins. Pattern of Rebirth is a quick way to cheat him out, but you should consider Natural Order as well since it gets the hulk out just as quickly. I see Karmic Guide , but I don't see Reveillark or Saffi Eriksdotter . I would highly recommend running at least one if not both of them. They create an endless recursion combo that lets you get everything back from your graveyard or trigger a Blood Artist effect to kill the table. Now I assume you use Leonin Relic-Warder with Karmic to go infinite. That's good, but I still say having the recursion availability to access your graveyard is a big advantage.
Anyway sorry for the super long comment. I just really like Ghave and wanted to leave some constructive criticism to help you with your deck. I generally prefer that kind of feedback myself. Hopefully this helps.

I'm so glad that I can finally make a true Human tribal deck with the printing of Sisay, Weatherlight Captain . The deck basically plays disruptive humans while digging for a combo finish with Loyal Retainers + Saffi Eriksdotter + Judith, the Scourge Diva or Zulaport Cutthroat . It's a pretty fun project for me as even the win condition is fully human! Comments, suggestions, and/or upvotes are welcome!

In any deck that likes to reanimate I highly suggest Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder as well as Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat . Birthing Pod is also extremely helpful to find what you need and also helps get things in your yard.
How do you feel about infinite combos? There are a few of them with karmic guide and two of them that do with Karmic Guide also work with Sun Titan (they all also require a free sac outlet) Reveillark is one that works with guide and not titan, but is very good at reanimating on its own. Saffi Eriksdotter combos with guide, titan, and reveillark and is good for protecting things you want to stay on board. Fiend Hunter combos with guide and titan and is just an all around amazing card. If you like these I have a few more cards to suggest for more easily enabling these combos, but if not I totally get it. Not everyone wants to be a degenerate lol.
I dunno how much you are willing to spend on cards, but Survival of the Fittest is incredibly strong as well.

What about a Saffi Eriksdotter combo recursion deck?

Pikobyte I have been playtesting and you are definitely right. Countermagic is a little redundant when you can tutor for your counter creatures. I still use demonic tutor because I think it is busted for 2 mana. Also, I was curious about your thoughts on Assassin's Trophy , Saffi Eriksdotter , Reanimate ? And one more question was why Noxious Gearhulk ? It seems eh for 6 mana spot removal and life gain doesn't seem very relevant. I guess because you can keep recurring it?

If you're going for Alluren as a main setup I would also recommend Cloudstone Curio . Turns into a cast combo with any 3 cmc creatures as long as you have one you can bounce back to your hand. Another personal favorite of mine when I was playing this combo in my Saffi Eriksdotter deck was Stonecloaker . Acted as an anti creatures removal when I needed to emergency bounce something back to my hand to protect it from targeted removal and was graveyard removal to boot.
