Creature — Fungus
Devour 2 (As this enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token for each +1/+1 counter on Mycoloth.

bushido_man96 I had actually considered those. Verdant Force is one of my favorites, but I essentially ended up comparing it to Mycoloth . Force is more mana, with a more specific cost, and only nets 1 Saproling a turn. Verdant Embrace could be good, but I worry about having a viable creature stick it on and it turning into a dead draw. Tendershoot Dryad would be a must add if the deck was ONLY Saprolings, but otherwise, if I have mostly Plant tokens or even Angel tokens with Divine Visitation , it's a little more underwhelming. More of a quality over quantity in terms of what is producing tokens.

You are probably missing the Top End token producers like Avenger of Zendikar or Tendershoot Dryad . Another alternative is Mycoloth to get a ton of tokens on the field. Another thing would be to include stuff that ends the game in one swing. You have Ojutai that grows bigger and bigger why not include a Overwhelming Stampede to give all your tokens his power and toughness and trample. Another thing would be Beastmaster Ascension or End-Raze Forerunners . A more hated variant of this would be Triumph of the Hordes .
Protection is also needed so i would include Heroic Intervention Rootborn Defenses that save your board the most scary thing for a token deck: Board Wipes. Asceticism and Privileged Position saves you spot removal trouble. If you don't like enchantments Archetype of Endurance is an alternative.
Card Draw should also not be neglected. I would play around your commanders and your win conditions. Ojutai gets huge pretty quickly so stuff like Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty or Garruk, Primal Hunter should give you the explosiveness to draw into your win conditions. Another thing to consider would be Huatli, Radiant Champion , easily the best Planeswalker you can put into a token deck and draws you cards for every creature that enters the battlefield. Exactly what we want for deck like this.
I also would cut Helm of the Host and rather play Bramble Sovereign cause helm is really scary and fragile too. You can easily waste 2 turns paying 9 mana only for your creature you want to equip it too being destroyed. Another thing i see is Entreat the Angels as a problem. It is a super good card but you have not much top of the library manipulation so i would cut it for Divine Visitation , does exactly what you want create 4/4 angels for every token you make. Also another thing to include and that is easily on of the best win condition if it hits turn 2 is Luminarch Ascension .
That's all for now from me, if you have any more questions just hit me up with them!

After last weekends debacle I've decided to shake things up a bit!
Let's see how things progress.

Hey dbpunk thanks for the advice!
Avenger of Zendikar and Abhorrent Overlord are good idea's, i'd probably opt for Abhorrent Overlord over Avenger, though with me trying to trim down the mana curve for this deck and help make it flow better and have more synergy, I doubt either will find a place in the deck, unfortunately.
Patron of the Vein is there purely for the "Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, exile it" wording. Since i can always guarantee forcing opponents to sac their boards, It's good anti graveyard decks for opponents.
Some Persist creatures may be an idea, but idk which ones i'd run. I don't just want purely exp booster persist creatures, I like having decent ETB effects or something that helps my board.

Also, since you only have 4 vampires including Patron of the Vein , it might be a good idea to switch it out for something else.

Volrath's copy ability lasts "until your next turn," which means at the start of your turn (essentially the beginning of the untap step), Volrath stops being a copy of anything. Mycoloth 's ability triggers at the start of your upkeep, which comes after the untap step, so by the time the ability would trigger, Volrath is no longer a copy. And since players don't receive priority to cast spells or activate abilities until the upkeep step (at which point Mycoloth would have triggered), even if you have Volrath copy Mycoloth again at your earliest possibility, that will be during your upkeep, after all "at the beginning of your upkeep" triggers have already triggered, which is too late.

So I'm unsure if Volrath, the Shapestealer works with effects that take place at the beginning of your upkeep. Specifically I would like to use Mycoloth in my Volrath deck but would Volrath be able to make the tokens?

We gave your request a lot of thought. Our main objective was to keep the spirit of the deck the same. So we decided to try and find replacements for the more expensive cards while keeping the original thought of the replaced cards alive. Naturally this would mean we would end up with cards that are either slightly less effective at what the expensive cards do, or they have a higher CMC, or both.
Almost all replacements we have chosen cost below 1 dollar. Some of the replaced cards are cards we do not own, so we decided not to post a new deck as we only do so when we own all the cards in it. So, here is a list of the replacements we would make in order to turn this into a less expensive deck:
- Forest for all the non-basic lands
- Hermit of the Natterknolls Flip for Beast Whisperer
- Ivy Lane Denizen for Bloodspore Thrinax
- End-Raze Forerunners for Craterhoof Behemoth
- Wirewood Channeler for Elvish Archdruid
- Skullwinder for Eternal Witness
- Rushwood Herbalist for Ezuri, Renegade Leader
- Evolutionary Leap for Fauna Shaman
- Elfhame Druid for Fyndhorn Elves
- Deadly Recluse for Hornet Queen
- Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen for Joraga Warcaller
- Ant Queen for Mycoloth
- Nullmage Advocate for Nullmage Shepherd
- Centaur Rootcaster for Oracle of Mul Daya
- Thunderfoot Baloth for Pathbreaker Ibex
- Mul Daya Channelers for Priest of Titania
- Initiate's Companion for Quirion Ranger
- Runic Armasaur for Regal Force
- Yavimaya Elder for Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Llanowar Scout for Sakura-Tribe Scout
- Deathgorge Scavenger for Scavenging Ooze
- Fyndhorn Brownie for Scryb Ranger
- Rampaging Baloths for Seedborn Muse (we know, not quite the same functions)
- Archetype of Endurance for Asceticism
- Overrun for Beastmaster Ascension
- Abundance for Burgeoning / Exploration
- Beast Within for Song of the Dryads
- Nature's Claim for Krosan Grip
- Vitalize for Benefactor's Draught
- Shared Summons for Green Sun's Zenith / Genesis Wave
- Mask of Avacyn for Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots
- Sol Ring for Worn Powerstone
We were not able to find suitable replacements (i.e.: cards that would do the same thing but be slightly less effective at it) for the following cards:
- Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger
- Concordant Crossroads
- Mirri's Guile
- Quest for Renewal
- Heroic Intervention
- Worldly Tutor
- Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Umbral Mantle
So if you have any suggestions for these, please let us know. For now, we hope we helped you a bit to make a cheaper version of our deck. Have fun brewing it!
