Creature — Snake
Myriad (Whenever this creature attacks, for each opponent other than defending player, you may put a token that's a copy of this creature onto the battlefield tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker he or she controls. Exile the token at the end of combat.)
Whenever Broodbirth Viper deals combat damage to a player, you may draw a card.

Cool deck! Here are a few ideas, what do you think?
Tokens : Broodbirth Viper, Warchief Giant, Crush of Tentacles, Precursor Golem, Gold-Forge Garrison, Rite of the Raging Storm, Metallurgic Summonings. Copy : Infinite Reflection, Mirror Mockery, Flameshadow Conjuring. Payoffs : Inferno Titan
I am a bit concerned about CA/QA, what about Combustible Gearhulk, Sensei's Divining Top, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Mystic Confluence or Sai, Master Thopterist? Also, you did not include any counterspell?

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.

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.

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.
