Pollenbright Druid can give you another body to sacrifice to Mycoloth, while also giving a +1/+1 counter if needed or Proliferating your spore counters. Thallid is a 1 drop that generates and uses spore counters. Mirror Entity takes all your frail creatures and turns them as big as you can pay for. Overrun can be a nice finisher with all these tokens lying around

I would remove Contagion Engine for another Mycoloth. Raking Canopy is only good for Sideboard and doesn't need to be in Mainboard as it can well be a dead card on your hand. I would also switch out Tukatongue Thallid for another Utopia Mycon and Thallid Shell-Dweller

Other than that I would trim the number of your lands to maybe like 22-23, while removing Fungal Sprouting and adding either Pollenbright Druid or Sporecrown Thallid

Alas I have returned with another suggestion. Contagion Engine. Destroy enemy creatures, then proliferate TWICE to destroy them even more, AND add more counters to your buddies.

maybe some proliferate to get Daretti, Scrap Savant's ult much quicker like Contagion Engine or Contagion Clasp

I put in Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar and Evolutionary Leap I also put in Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine to fit with the infectious spore theme.

This looks like a cool way to work around Griswold's abilities!

Have you considered adding Contagion Engine to your deck? It might be useful to you since it both eliminates creatures and poliferates your commander +1+1s.

Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos also might be a good way to hit your opponent's my creatures. If you kill everyone's tokens, they would also have to sac their other, beefier creatures equal to the amount of your tokens that died.

If you wanted, you could also lean into an Aristocrat build and add the staples like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat for damage, Ashnod's Altar and Viscera Seer for free sac outlets, and Skullclamp for value. It's up to you though; I personally enjoy playing decks that move away from staple cards, even if it means they are a little less powerful.

Tormod's Crypt to hate on other graveyard decks.

Contagion Engine to proliferate more. Same for Karn's Bastion.

I also play a experience counter atraxa similar to yours. It's so much fun because you have so much synergies in the deck! I can highly recommend:
