Creature — Dryad
Whenever another nontoken creature enters the battlefield, you may pay . If you do, that creature's controller creates a token that's a copy of that creature.
Bramble Sovereign Discussion

DarthDC I'm an advocate for greaves over swiftfoot boots but you can always include both.
There are plenty of cards that can cheaply replicate and reuse some of your most powerful ETB cards. I'm thinking of clones or psuedo clones like Progenitor Mimic , Mirror Mockery , Phantasmal Image , Rite of Replication , Blade of Selves , Bramble Sovereign (also is an ETB ability so by paying 2GG you can have an ETB go off 6 times with Yarok!!), Faerie Artisans (another ETB trigger that Yarok doubles), etc.
The above cards aren't really control cards but more value oriented. Some of them are very efficient though so I would suggest using them.
Haha all I'm doing is suggesting cards I have in my Yarok deck so sometime soon I will get around to making a deck list and I'll send you the link.

SideBae unfortunately "as it enters" is not an ETB trigger. ETB triggers have the distinct text starting the sentence with "When", "Whenever", and "If."
Your deck seems solid but I would suggest adding in some more draw power. There are easy to mention (but expensive) cards like Rhystic Study and Sylvan Library but Yarok can enhance effects like Guardian Project and Soul of the Harvest to become very potent. There are plenty of 2-3 CmC creatures that have a draw ETBs that are worth considering as well.
Creature tutors can be even more valuable than generic tutors. I suggest including Eldritch Evolution , Neoform , Prime Speaker Vannifar , and Birthing Pod to turn your used ETB bodies into fodder to find even more creatures with ETBs.
Some of Yarok's most hidden gems are cards that simply let you do more of what you are already doing. Phantasmal Image , Temur Sabertooth , Bramble Sovereign , Progenitor Mimic , Ghostly Flicker , Repudiate / Replicate , Rite of Replication , Mimic Vat , and Crystal Shard are great examples that allow you do copy or reuse ETB effects.
Make sure you include Instant and sorceries for removal because nothing suck more than getting stuck by a Torpor Orb when all of your removal is ETB based. Krosan Grip , Force of Vigor , Return to Nature , Nature's Claim , Beast Within , etc.

notes: you have a lot of small creatures that you have to waste turns on buffing, you have a lot of card draw and not a lot of ways to keep all those cards, you have a lot of small synergies with merfolk/snake, but not enough to warrant having them IMO, could be better suited more focused on winning. cuts: Trollbred Guardian , Overrun , River Sneak , Experiment One , Coiling Oracle , Patagia Viper , Triton Shorestalker , Jace's Ingenuity , Ohran Viper , Verdant Confluence , Ezuri's Predation adds: Cultivator of Blades , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , Triumph of the Hordes , Reliquary Tower , Rancor , Doubling Season , Awakening Zone / From Beyond , Wirewood Symbiote , Hadana's Climb Flip, Sudden Substitution , Devoted Druid , Temur Sabertooth , Bramble Sovereign , Thrummingbird , Tezzeret's Gambit , Faerie Artisans , Stubborn Denial

This is super cool!!! You might like these: Mantle of Leadership , Pollenbright Wings , Sigil of the Nayan Gods , Hope Against Hope , Heliod's Pilgrim (finds Squirrel Nest), Open the Armory , Fierce Empath (finds the Earl), Fungal Sprouting , Murder Investigation , Mercy Killing , Anointer Priest , Requiem Angel , Bramble Sovereign (interestingly, the Earl is not legendary, which means you can copy and populate it for multiple Earls!), Mimic Vat , Second Harvest , Parallel Evolution , Shared Summons .
I can think of more if you need :p Also I would take out Nantuko Shrine . I'd be surprised if you made even 1 squirrel with it.

You are probably missing the Top End token producers like Avenger of Zendikar or Tendershoot Dryad . Another alternative is Mycoloth to get a ton of tokens on the field. Another thing would be to include stuff that ends the game in one swing. You have Ojutai that grows bigger and bigger why not include a Overwhelming Stampede to give all your tokens his power and toughness and trample. Another thing would be Beastmaster Ascension or End-Raze Forerunners . A more hated variant of this would be Triumph of the Hordes .
Protection is also needed so i would include Heroic Intervention Rootborn Defenses that save your board the most scary thing for a token deck: Board Wipes. Asceticism and Privileged Position saves you spot removal trouble. If you don't like enchantments Archetype of Endurance is an alternative.
Card Draw should also not be neglected. I would play around your commanders and your win conditions. Ojutai gets huge pretty quickly so stuff like Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty or Garruk, Primal Hunter should give you the explosiveness to draw into your win conditions. Another thing to consider would be Huatli, Radiant Champion , easily the best Planeswalker you can put into a token deck and draws you cards for every creature that enters the battlefield. Exactly what we want for deck like this.
I also would cut Helm of the Host and rather play Bramble Sovereign cause helm is really scary and fragile too. You can easily waste 2 turns paying 9 mana only for your creature you want to equip it too being destroyed. Another thing i see is Entreat the Angels as a problem. It is a super good card but you have not much top of the library manipulation so i would cut it for Divine Visitation , does exactly what you want create 4/4 angels for every token you make. Also another thing to include and that is easily on of the best win condition if it hits turn 2 is Luminarch Ascension .
That's all for now from me, if you have any more questions just hit me up with them!

Bramble Sovereign is in the same category as the above two, but has a slight politics route to take.
True Conviction could be bonkers in a deck like this.
