Normally yes i would play Torpor Orb with the hunted creatures but in this deck the whole purpose is to kill my opponent by giving them creatures.

Cloudshift and Essence Flux are also helpful to save my life drainers from removal. I didn't really want to add green to the deck since it is already 3 colors but i might start playing around with taking out white to add some green cards.

thanks everyone for all the suggestions and +1s I greatly appreciate it.
Primal Vigor is a little to mana costly, I find by turn 5 my opponent is already dead and without any mana ramp I wouldn't be playing it until turn 5 which would be too late to be helpful. Besides Cloudshift and Essence Flux are what really shine at duplicating my tokens.
I definitely like the Street Wraith idea, I was thinking of taking out Hunted Horror since 2 tokens that don't die immediately thanks to Illness in the Ranks or have their first attack negated thanks to the life gain from a few cards wasn't really working out as well as I hoped. I was going to throw in Hunted Troll but I don't really want to add fourth color and the free card draw from Street Wraith would be extremely helpful.
I was originally thinking of adding Authority of the Consuls but I found I never needed to attack with anything other than my Hunted Phantasm which is unblockable anyway. Definitely a good sideboard option for fast agro decks, gives me extra life gain and slows them down a bit. Also I never really thought of how well it goes with Mercy Killing I just had it stuck in my head that all the tokens I give them come into play on my turn anyway but that's not the case with Mercy Killing.
Beast Within is only in the sideboard because I was thinking about adding green I just forgot to remove it. I don't think I would need Crib Swap since I already have Mercy Killing which does basically the same thing but gives them more tokens to be drained by. I love the idea of Genesis Chamber, that will be a great replacement for the Beast Withins in the sideboard for fighting creature heavy decks. Against anything else it is kind of a dead card since it doesn't duplicate the tokens I give them.

Not quite. Anointed Procession doubles my tokens but i would need it to double my opponents tokens.

I would swap the 4xDesert of the Glorified and 4xDesert of the Mindful for 4xIrrigated Farmland and 4xCanyon Slough. since they all come into play tapped anyway this will negate the color specific cycling costs and you will still have the same mana production but gain basic land types to work for your Choked Estuary.
also since you are only running 3 basic lands you could swap out your 2x Sunken Hollow to be able to keep in 1 Desert of the Glorified and 1 Desert of the Mindful since the chances of you having 2 out of 3 of your basic lands in play without any fetches are very slim. It would also give you extra cycling cards.
