I really like that green has stuff like Progenitor Mimic , Scute Swarm , Spawnwrithe , Giant Adephage , and Permeating Mass , as well as Rhys the Redeemed . But I want a card like Brood of Cockroaches , Endless Cockroaches to be like that and Ogre Slumlord .
Creature - Insect
When a nontoken creature dies, at the beginning of the next end step, create a token copy of Cockroach Infestation.
This is designed to basically limit how combos using it can work. Also, it'll be amazing in a devotion deck, as every token is 3 devotion to black.
I'd like to see a White card that uses the Battalion/Mentor mechanic, and also creates token copies of itself, like Legion Warboss , making copies of itself, and monowhite.

I... really think people are overestimating this card. One extra card and a 1/1 per turn cycle isn't great for 4 mana, is it?? Like, I don't even play competitively, and the only decks I know that would play this are my buddy's Rhys the Redeemed and Teysa Karlov builds, because they can use the token.

Arbor Elf is a superior mana dork to Elves of Deep Shadow as EotDS can only produce a black, which does not help us elf-ball. It's only purpose really is for mana fixing, so we can avoid Blood Moon & more reliably cast Shaman of the Pack. At the end of the day, Arbor Elf is just as effective as any other 1drop mana dork in a deck that's heavily forest based. You could make an argument for more Elvish Mystic but Arbor Elf has the luxury of untapping Overgrown Tomb or Stomping Ground if required - usually the scenario being when we elf-ball & are drawing cards at creature cast so we dont know when we may pull a Shaman of the Pack or Rhythm of the Wild.
Elvish Clancaller sounds nice but requires more mana-investment to be better than Elvish Champion which gives us evasion versus decks such as URBG, Gruul Midrange, Jund, Scapeshift, Ammy Titan, Dredge, and others. I believe the ability for us to ignore blockers vs some of the meta's best decks is better than having to pay 6 mana for 1 lord. That mana can be spent on more important things such as Beast Whisperer or Rhys the Redeemed who's 1 mana cheaper, has a cheaper ability to invest into, & an activation ability that costs the same but more impactful as going wide not only helps with more damage but synergizes with Elvish Archdruid who can produce net-positive mana after all that.
Llanowar Tribe while it has haste or coming off a Collected Company is extremely efficient. It has stats that meet the baseline for modern of being a 3/3/ for 3, with it producing mana equal to it's CMC. Meaning that with it having haste, it's basically a Burning-Tree Emissary. This mana production synergize with Ezuri, Renegade Leader, having the mana to pay for Craterhoof Behemoth without having to tap too many dorks to swing with, or pushing an elf-ball.
The Great Henge is literally a better version of Beast Whisperer as we should have 5+ power easily by the end of t3 & most definitely should on t4, making it cheaper than Beast Whisperer. With it tapping for 2G, it then pays for itself while giving us card draw on creature ETB + giving them a +1 counter. This is essential for us to elf-ball & to completely overwhelm opponents. The card draw on ETB compliments Collected Company as well where as Beast Whisperer is only on creature cast.

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!
Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).
Rhys the Redeemed... he's getting a reprint
Gutterbones... reusable 1-drops
Norin the Wary... free 1/1s or ETB triggers
Mist-Cloaked Herald... anything that can't be blocked
Graveblade Marauder... anything <4 with deathtouch
Alpine Houndmaster... going wide?
Malakir Cullblade... grower not a shower
Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o
