A few quick things :)
First, I hate to tell you this, but Composite Golem isn't legal in a UG deck. It has a color identity of 5-color, because it has all mana symbols in its text :( You can get the same effect with Ashnod's Altar + Symbiotic Elf, though!
Cost reduction works extremely well with morph, by the way. Dream Chisel and Semblance Anvil can make it cheaper to spit out a bunch of creatures. Muraganda Petroglyphs also pumps your face-down creatures.
I hope that helps a bit ;)

Mitotic Slime comes to mind. Reef Worm is sorta like that, but in the wrong colors. Abzan Ascendancy/Golgari Germination/Gutter Grime/Requiem Angel are sorta close, Belfry Spirit turns the creature it haunts into a card like that, Brindle Shoat, Tuktuk the Explorer and Doomed Dissenter just get bigger. Liege of the Hollows gives everyone squirrels when it dies. Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, and Symbiotic Wurm turn into insects. Chasm Skulker explodes into a pile of squid (wrong colors again tho). Maalfeld Twins breaks apart into 2 zombies, and Mausoleum Guard into 2 spirits. Promise of Bunrei makes one of your dudes explode into spirits. Sporogenesis is kind of a cool card that makes your guys explode into saprolings on death. Sprouting Thrinax is good. Wurmcoil Engine is a popular one.Goblin Marshal/Mogg War Marshal makes goblins when he ETBs and dies. Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Hangarback Walker, and Hooded Hydra all work. Jotun Owl Keeper in blue again. Mongrel Pack is another one, as is Murder Investigation. Theres a whole bunch of "Penumbra" cards from odyssey that all make a black clone of themselves when they die (e.g Penumbra Wurm). Ulvenwald Mysteries turns each dead guy into a clue that it then turns into a soldier.
If I were to make a commander deck around this idea, I would go with a Jund, not Abzan, sacrifice deck led by Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, or perhaps Shattergang Brothers. In addition to these you have a ton of guys that just make 1 token on death- Seed Guardian, Sifter of Skulls, Pawn of Ulamog, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, Myr Sire, etc.

Symbiotic Elf (or any other creature that makes two tokens upon entering the battlefield/death) + Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle makes infinite insects. Play the elf, sac it to the altar, float the mana, sac one insect, use that mana to attach the Deathmantle to the Elf.

I went through the rest of the cards in the shoebox and made the following tweaks. With the few cards I have, it looks like I can lead toward elf tribal. I should probably post this as a new deck because it's very much different.

Out: Balduvian Barbarians, Centaur Rootcaster, Dire Wolves, Folk of the Pines, Horned Kavu, Hungry Mist, Ironroot Treefolk, Kavu Climber, Kei Takahashi, Krosan Tusker, Lightning Elemental, Marble Titan, Panther Warriors, Pincher Beetles, Rowan Treefolk, Ruham Djinn, Sawtooth Ogre, Soldevi Golem, Spined Wurm, Treespring Lorian, Viashino Grappler

i'm building a combo deck built around infinite tokens.
Other than the main combo, I don't know what other combos could be added in or what other cards I could put in to stall until i get the combo going.
Any help is appreciated, after i get enough help i'll put together a test deck and post it here.

I would put in a lot of blue instants and counters and stuff. keep it an elf deck make it tokeny so you can get experience counters. Urza's Incubator and cards like it will be good so then you can cast elves for cheap. lots of ramp so then you can keep casting your commander. and maybe even more draw cards. or even Elixir of Immortality so you can replay cards.
