For a token deck, you don't make very many tokens.

The very best token producer in Pauper is Sprout Swarm. This card is often a win condition in even non-token decks because of how powerful it is. I cannot recommend this card enough.

Battle Screech makes many tokens for very little effort. Fliers are a great bonus, too. This is another one of the best token producers out there.

In terms of card advantage and having a sticky board, Cenn's Enlistment is extremely powerful. It can turn all your late game lands into 1/1s to reinforce your board.

Other decent token producers are Icatian Crier, Maul Splicer (good top-end), Miming Slime (good with pump effects), Penumbra Spider, Raise the Alarm, Scatter the Seeds, Selesnya Evangel, Slime Molding (good with populate), Sporemound, Triplicate Spirits, Wake the Reflections and Walker of the Grove. There are few other good ones, but these see more play.

I would recommend running most/all the soul sisters. Soul Warden, Essence Warden, Soul's Attendant and Anointer Priest are all fairly strong.

Ivy Lane Denizen is a great choice for you. Most of the tokens you'll make will be green, which will in turn grow whatever creature you want (or it basically turns all your 1/1s into 2/2s, which is huge).

Rampant Growth could easily be Sakura-Tribe Elder, which is basically the same card but with a 1/1 body for free that you can attack and block with.

I understand you want to maybe cycle them, but Safe Passage can be a big blowout in your favour.

In terms of cuts, I would think about cutting a lot of the non-token stuff. The cards that tap down creatures seem like a good place to start, since ideally you are going wider than your opponent anyways. Ardenvale Tactician and Expose Evil are easy cuts. Next, some of the more vanilla creatures that would be better served as more token producers, like Aven Skirmisher, Healer's Hawk, Faerie Guidemother, Pilgrim's Eye (you don't need this when playing Green), Sedge Scorpion and Voracious Typhon. Then, in your enchantments Bonds of Faith and Squire's Devotion seem like weaker options. For protection spells, you could be doing much better than Flicker of Fate.

I hope some of this helps you!

MurrSheep: Thanks for the upvote and the comment. Regarding your suggestions: Hidden Spider is interesting, but it's hard to find room for a one-drop that doesn't me help me get delirium online by itself. It's still definitely worth remembering. I recently kicked Penumbra Spider for Rotwidow Pack. While the former has better stats, the latter can help me win the game. So I'll pass there.

Hidden Spider and Penumbra Spider are my suggestions. Love the deck, though.

Definitely needs some way to swat Flying pests. Penumbra Spider and Twin-Silk Spider are my favorite choices, but there's always Scattershot Archer . Love the deck! Big green!!

What a great and terribly annoying idea! I hate the logistics of keeping track of tokens if you don't have them printed out or have actual card copies of each of the tokens. But the theme still works, and the idea is legit. That said, where are the spiders, man!? Gotta represent. Consider Penumbra Spider or Renowned Weaver (or both, since they produce different spiders). You can also get some sick spider tokens out from Arachnogenesis to stop attackers in their tracks and maybe get some kills. Also, Wingmate Roc would work here, giving you some power in the air and a token that would be a great target for populate. But this deck is still sick without these. Props to you.

Flooremoji Hmm, interesting. I have choices I have debated for flyer removal:

Aerial Volley

Epic Confrontation

Penumbra Spider

Which do you think is best and why?

Thanks for the upvote!

Maybe a Penumbra Spider in the side?
