I've just pulled a few cards out of my Vorel and Shattergang lists that might be of use here;

-The kamigawa Hondens (Life's web, Night's reach and Cleansing fire)
The green one on it's own will give you a Spirit token every turn, the discard from the black one can be relevant and the white one just to round out the set.

-Overrun effects.
Because reasons.

-Nath of the Gilt-Leaf
Again, makes an elf every turn and gets better with discard effects.

-Saproling production (I run Night Soil, Jade Mage, Fungal Sprouting, Sprout Swarm and Psychotrope Thallid between these two decks)
Saprolings are just my go-to shenanigan engine in decks like these, and psychotrope thallid lets you really start digging through your deck.

-Jar of Eyeballs, Fecundity
Tokens die easily, don't let them die in vain.

-Riptide Replicator
Lets you make off-colour tokens of whatever type are most relevant, plus they're as big as you can afford to make them.

Every single creature in an EDH deck should be able to pass one of the following two criterion:

1) The creature directly facilitates the primary theme of your deck (ie: token generation, populate, buffing small dudes into bigger threats (anthem/archetype effects), or converting your excess dudes into something else (via a sac outlet)

or

2) The creature is busted and always going to be useful whenever drawn. This includes strong etb effects like tutors, removal on a stick, etc that you could potentially copy with a mimic vat, creatures like gods that are hard to kill with mass removal, and creatures that are always bombs (Teneb, Karador, etc)

If you're looking at a creature and it doesn't fit one of those two categories there are probably better options available. Creatures that fail that test at a glance are:

*Any creature with heroic triggers. Heroic simply isn't good enough at a table of 4 where someone probably has a counterspell or removal. Even bestows (that don't get you potentially 2 for 1d) can be harder to justify.
*you will have to run the Urborg to make Crypt Ghast worthwhile, and even then he might be a trap because without the Urborg down on the table you *might* get one extra mana out of him.

Also, which of the four possible BWG commanders have you chosen to go with?

I've got to make my Tokenmander deck again. I haven't updated it since Khans set, and there are plenty more tokens now. I think it's an Abzan deck, IIRC? Green, White, and Black do tend to have more tokens than Red or Blue.

I'm gonna recommend Mycoloth for this deck. Yes he has to survive a turn before he starts giving you more tokens, but he gives double what he takes. Also, asceticism and Archetype of Endurance may be good for protecting your creatures.

So I'm assuming the commander is going to be Ghave?
