Thanks KibaAlpha as always.

Pitiless Plunderer I am going to keep for now, I feel it is an extremely powerful value engine in this deck that can power up a Reassembling Skeleton, for example, with multiple recursions without going infinite.

I agree with you on Revel in Riches but I like the idea of having an alternate wincon in the deck in case someone goes out of control with lifegain or something similar.

Butcher of Malakir I almost cut last round of edits but decided to leave him in since my local meta is really creature heavy right now, he will get cut when I see it shifting.

Also agree with Sadistic Hypnotist, he will draw alot of hate and is one of my worst sac outlets being at sorcery speed only. I'm hoping to trigger his ability a few times before taking him out of deck.

Only point I disagree with is the Deathgreeter vs Solemn Simulacrum recommendation. I don't see the value of Deathgreeter, there are already at least 6 other cards that trigger lifegain on death (aristocrats), and Solemn Simulacrum provides so much value, especially with Teysa Karlov on the board. Recur him with Mimic Vat or Nim Deathmantle for aggressive ramping.

Zendikar's Roil does sound like a nice alternative. However, this deck makes it much easier to search for creatures rather than enchantments, and even with Omnath, Locus of Rage 's cost, we'll most likely send him to the graveyard to reanimate him with Horde of Notions . On top of that, with Yarok, the Desecrated out, I'll be getting 10/10 worth of P/T over 4/4, so I can use them for swinging and chump blocking. Plus I get the damage on death trigger with Omnath too. I'm still on the fence about including Teysa Karlov as well for those triggers, but I'll only add her in if I get a reasonable number of them.
Also I should note that I'm more focused on the ETB triggers of elementals rather than lands. Omnath would provide equal amounts of offense and defense, but giving all my creatures vigilance through Brave the Sands is another option. Plus I can double block with them to guarantee they hit the graveyard just so I can reanimate them and get those ETB triggers again.

ZendikariWol on I need a token deck...

Want something off-beat? How about Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer ?

Want a brew where your long-sought-after Doubling Season really works double duty? How about Marath, Will of the Wild ?

Wanna really have a game where you're spinning the wheel? Atla Palani, Nest Tender . Like a token Cascade!

Wanna be the unconventional token strat that goes tall instead of wide? Take a look at Feldon of the Third Path !

Krenko, Mob Boss can get out of hand, I'm sure.

You could sac your way to the win or just go wide with Prossh, Skyraider of Kher !

Need something totally typical? Might I suggest Rhys the Redeemed ?

How about Rith, the Awakener devotion tokens. I hear White has some good stuff for that?

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and Izoni, Thousand-Eyed look like they've got a good thing going...

Wanna get creative? Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun is a unique choice, but how much support does he have? Quasiduplicate is a good start.

Teysa Karlov is sitting in the middle of the Orzhov web of power. Know what that means? Lots of tokens and a lot more death.

Need to come out of nowhere with an enormous beat stick? Ulasht, the Hate Seed is your beat stick!!

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is another beefy boi who benefits from auras and equipments a lot... as do Tana, the Bloodsower and Siona, Captain of the Pyleas ... Here's something else entirely. Voltron tokens?

Hope that was enough options.
