Broodbirth Viper makes tokens that you can sac, and draws you cards when it deals damage.

Sorry, I didn't look at the mana base. Good call. Still that seems too little. Maybe some natural token generators like Broodbirth Viper is good for this. It's a pretty strong body that draws cards, and you can sac the tokens at the end of combat. Maybe Efficient Construction, if you think you have enough artifacts. Metallurgic Summonings already generates powerful enough bodies but you can counter a spell and sac the token for a huge thing. Mirror Mockery and a little clever politics could go a long way. Maybe Stolen Identity on a fattie. Could be pretty scary. Summoner's Bane is like an Essence Scatter on a stick.

hookedonkronix: Thanks again for the good advice. I do already have an Ohran Viper and a Broodbirth Viper in the deck. I just acquired a Thunderfoot Baloth and am seriously considering it for here. And One with Nature sounds hilariously awesome...for me. I thought about Caller of the Pack, but decided to go with something that had more utility. I like it's beefiness, trample, and myriad, but I wanted more than just a body on the field.

Ohran Viper - Thunderfoot Baloth - Caller of the Pack - Broodbirth Viper - One with Nature

Still working on my simic build. It took a different angle than your deck here but I found a few cards you might like to try in here. I'll link you to mine once I've put the finished touches on it.

Neat stuff. Have you considered Myriad? Broodbirth Viper, Banshee of the Dread Choir, Blade of Selves?

Also maybe look into some cards with on-hit effects other than draw and discard. Throat Slitter, Ashling, the Extinguisher, Silent-Blade Oni and more. I'm currently brainstorming a Vela the Night-Clad edh based on similar concepts. Who btw may fit here.

One last bit: the Shadow, Ninjutsu and Cipher mechanics may have something to offer.
