Jazal Goldmane will make all your tokens absolutely huge, resulting in everybody's death. Chancellor of the Forge gets you a ton of tokens, which means you can get more saprolings. Sprout Swarm is a great card which will get you a lot of tokens at instant speed over time.

7/18/2014 When calculating a spells total cost, include any alternative costs, additional costs, or anything else that increases or reduces the cost to cast the spell. Convoke applies after the total cost is calculated.
This is a ruling from the Gatherer Website For Sprout Swarm. This means that, as you cast the spell, you declare whether or not you are going to use the buyback. Then you pay for the total cost of the spell which will then be 5 (1G + 3 for buyback)
7/18/2014 The rules for convoke have changed slightly since it last appeared in an expansion. Previously, convoke reduced the cost to cast a spell. Under current rules, you tap creatures at the same time you pay the spells costs. Tapping a creature this way is simply another way to pay.
Essentially, you are tapping your saproling tokens via convoke to pay for the spell as though you would tap lands for it.
This works how you think it would. By using the little Sprouts you already have to pay for Sprout Swarm.
Note: If you have cards like Parallel Lives or Doubling Season in play, and you get at least 5 saprolings out of your resolutions, you can get infinite saprolings with this card by tapping the sprouts (via convoke) you get from each resolution.

The card in question is Sprout Swarm If I already have 7 saprolings tokens with Fungal Sprouting and I decide to use Sprout Swarm can I use four of the tokens to pay for Sprout Swarm and it's buyback cost. or will I still need to pay the extra 3 colorless in order to return Sprout Swarm to my hand?

I love Sprout Swarm. I've generated so many tokens from that card in my Trostani deck.
Anyway, here's what I suggest. Chancellor of the Forge gets you a massive amount of tokens, and now there are a lot more red permanents in play to abuse with Rith's ability. Impact Tremors is very deadly in decks with massive token generation. Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion not only can let you commander kill easily but get more tokens by activating Rith's ability twice. Strionic Resonator also can double Rith's ability. Descent of the Dragons can replace all your weak saprolings with strong dragons while also killing your opponent's pesky creatures in the process.

I think Sprout Swarm could do some major work in this deck
