Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Also some other blink type cards:
Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

I'm not totally sold on Song of the Worldsoul . I feel that its utility in this deck would be limited by a number of factors:
1. Populate would get me only creature tokens (and only one each spell).
2. The ability is triggered by casting and currently it seems to me that this deck prefers to play on "recursion" from the graveyard rather than play from the hand, especially in the late game.
3. For its effect, i find it to be quite expensive in terms of mana value. If i were to decide to add more token-multipliers, i would probably opt for a card like Rings of Brighthearth . I think it could be way more effective in the vast majorities of cases.
Thank you for the suggestion though. I really appreciated that you took the time for commenting and i will surely riconsider the card if I ever feel that the deck needs to focus on tokens even more!

Changed to wrong section to:
I'm looking at this, and I don't see why I'm being told that likes to copy token creatures. Rather, I think that's because it's tied to other mechanics, like Storm, Embalm, Eternalize, Myriad or Encore rather than through anything they actually care to do, which is to say that White makes lots of copies already when they mass produce tokens, but they don't go out of their way to copy pre-existing things.
A previous version of this article had me talk about Proliferate instead of Populate, and for that, I apologize. I got my wires crossed and just wrote it out.

+1 my guy!
I really like ghired. A 5 mana 10/10 is a lot of fun in commander! There are a few populate tricks you could lean in to if you like the Mimic Vat effects like: Feldon of the Third Path, Seance, Stone Idol Trap, Zektar Shrine Expedition, Angelic Favor... were my favorites.
I would try to lower the curve and play some more ramp. The more you consistently play ghired, the happier you'll be.
-1Song of the Worldsoul... slow
-1Courage in Crisis... proliferate wut
-1Beastmaster Ascension... slow
-1Tendershoot Dryad... great card, but it has little synergy when you already make so many other tokens
