Let's see.

Assemble the Legion, Mycoloth, Avenger of Zendikar for token generators.

Sterling Grove, Sphere of Safety, Ghostly Prison for protection.

Aura Mutation and Artifact Mutation for removal AND gives tokens.

Marshal's Anthem for another Anthem + recursion.

Spear of Heliod for yet another anthem AND removal!

I built a deck revolving around Liquimetal Coating, and using Voltaic Key to untap it, and every 1 or 2 cmc spell like Smelt, Artifact Mutation, or Ancient Grudge. It's a very fun deck to pilot and makes people very upset. Doesn't do as well in multiplayer games, but it's fun (for me) to Splinter out all of someone's basic lands. This type of deck might be more for you than just Wasteland + Crucible of Worlds, as that won't really get you going on to victory.

good call on the Thran Forge - it gives you a mana sink for artifacts. Some suggestions for the deck - Artifact Mutation gives you saprolings in addition to destruction for 2, Seal of Primordium acts as a premptive removal spell, just letting it sit on the board as a threat. Ingot Chewer can evoke for R, but can be hardcast mid-late game as another body. Shattering Pulse can be used late game as a continuous removal spell thanks to buyback. Smash to Smithereens doesn't hit artifacts like Destructive Revelry, but it does deal 1 more damage for the same cost. Tel-Jilad Justice allows some deck manipulation with scry 2. Finally Tin Street Hooligan would work as a cheap enter play removal with legs.

I once built a Saskia deck, but mine was mono-creatures as a gimmick. Didn't last too long, but might give you a few ideas (particularly in the land base): *RETIRED* Thousand Victories: Saskia EDH

In terms of specific suggestions...

Anguished Unmaking over (or in addition to) Utter End.

Most any other draw spell over Skeletal Scrying.

Artifact Mutation is a great token-maker here.

Have you considered Sneak Attack?

Vampiric Rites seems inefficient. Perhaps Skullclamp instead?

Siege-Gang Commander over Ponyback Brigade.

There is no better token card than Assemble the Legion :D

Hope this helps a bit!

Both are pretty nice. The Artifact Mutation proves it's worth if you have an opponent playing a Torpor Orb on turn 2. The downside is that they take 2 slots, where you could also play Naturalize, or better still Gleeful Sabotage, not to mention Hull Breach or Decimate.

Pollenbright Wings is indeed amazing! What do you think about the instants Aura Mutation and Artifact Mutation? both are cheap spot removal and give you a few saprolings.
