Maybe replace Scatter the Seeds with Sprout Swarm, or not. Scatter is more explosive, sprout can make more over time, and helps you after a board wipe.If you're going to have Aggravated Assault in a token deck, Cryptolith Rite lets you go infinite, and ramps you hard (this is a pet card of mine, but it is good)Maybe replace Pandemonium with Impact Tremors. Tremors has less synergy with Thromok but isn't a universal effect.
Maybe replace Burning-Tree Emissary with Fires of Yavimaya. Also Primal Rage. Maybe cut Contagion Engine, there are better counter producers in red/green, plus Thromok doesn't need them. Chandra's Ignition is a great board wipe if you have one big dude.

Theres also the possibility of an Eldritch Evolution/emerge combo deck running creatures like Root-Kin Ally/Tangle Golem for a cheap Decimator of the Provinces Mockery of Nature and convoke token generators like Scatter the Seeds or similar.
A 'stall for big spells' is also a thing- Thelonite Hermit doesn't use the stack for morph, so running a control setup aiming to get him morphed on the battlefield with Aspect of Mongoose on him is possible.
Fog/Blunt the Assault/Brindle Boar/Gristleback etc to stall to midgame then cast some high value eldrazi or beating down with Moldgraf Scavenger/Undergrowth Scavenger and similar delirum will work. Harrow will help a lot with this.
Splashing blue could allow for Prophet of Kruphix shenanigans, and that blue/green return to hand emerge eldrazi, along with combo options.
If you decide the archetype you want to play (aggro, midrange, control) I'll try to come up with cards to help support it. Building something strong normally involves emphasising its strengths as much as possible- meaning some cards get silly expensive, but cheaper cards with synergy to almost match them exist. Good luck and happy brewing.

Thanks Brewtzar, I knew that Sigil Captain and Intangible Virtue clashed and that it was a problem, but I kept both in as two alternative methods of boosting the tokens, admittedly it wasn't ideal, but having a cheaper cost if there was no Sigil Captain in sight was useful and I had nothing to fill it's place, but because of the other cards I'll be able to replace Intangible Virtue. Jade Mage is a great card but a little high cost for just one or two tokens a turn if I'm willing to spend all my mana on a mid game turn, if I played one more than likely it would sit idle for the rest of the game. Fists of Ironwood and Hour of Reckoning sound like the great additions and I might try to rework the deck more to put in a few Scatter the Seeds. as for Rhys the Redeemed, one or two could be useful, it is high cost as you said, so I might leave it out, but thank you for your support and suggestions!

If you are trying to make a token deck, maybe use black. Raise the Alarm over Dragon Fodder. black for Lingering Souls. Scatter the Seeds. Collective Blessing over Titanic Ultimatum or Dictate of Heliod. For removal Lightning Bolt Cut: Byway Courier, Veteran Warleader, Pack Guardian, and probably Hooded Hydra. Devout Invocation, Spectral Possession, Intangible Virtue, Hero of Bladehold, and those are most of the budget options. Happy to give advice. Go for 4 Hanweir Garrison.

I'm thinking more sac outlets would help you grow your beaters even larger. Scatter the Seeds will help you get tokens after a certain point, Sprout is pretty much a 1 for 1 unless you wanna find creative ways to bring it back around.

Boza Thanks for the suggestions! I do think you might be underestimating Massive Raid a bit, however- Massive Raid is a midgame card with terrifying potential. It's a response card that I have used several times to either remove huge threats, or simply seal the game- It's not uncommon to see it do 8+ damage. Where, on the other hand, Rites of Initiation, while a powerful card in it's own right that does have a much cheaper initial mana cost, requires a much, MUCH heftier investment of resources in the form of the cards that are discarded- It's a card that I feel would fit much better in something like Mono-Red Goblins, which could use it to seal the game in a very timely manner.
on your suggestion of cutting Echoing Courage- Because of the unity of my token types, Echoing Courage is both a powerful offensive and defensive tool. The offensive capabilities are fairly self-explanatory, but the defensive capabilities are just as, if not more, important- It can save the swarm from every mass removal used right now, as well as make it to where they can have very favorable trades against large attackers.
Now, as far as some of your other suggestions, I'm not really sold on Scatter the Seeds, to be honest- It does have convoke, which is a relevant ability, but it at the same time makes another relevant card in the deck, Brood Birthing, categorically worse. (It does the same to Echoing Courage, but as you're making a case for that card to be taken out, that would be a moot argument anyway, wouldn't it? :P) Sprout Swarm, I feel, has similar arguments against it, but it is a card that could help a stalled late-game or for wipe recovery, so I may consider putting it in as a 1-of.
Keep Watch However, I feel, is the strongest contender here, with the best argument. This deck's most obvious deficiency is it's lack of card draw, which means that against decks that do have CD, if it comes to Topdeck wars, decks with CD do have an obvious advantage, so it is a card I'll put serious consideration towards.
Once again though, thanks! :D I'm very thankful for the feedback.
