Not a bad start... I do have several suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.
Draw: You're severely lacking in this department. Drop one time draw like Read the Bones and replace it with things like Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Herald's Horn . I literally run all those plus the draw creatures/Skullclamp you run.
Finishers: Drop Door of Destinies... it's a significant investment that does nothing for your current board and requires gas to get it to do anything after. Shared Animosity , Reconnaissance (2nd post dedicated entirely to this card), and depending on your meta Cover of Darkness .

I'd run Adaptive Automaton and Crystal Shard . Blasphemous Act as well. Unclaimed Territory is a must and I like Tarnished Citadel . Living Death could be kida killer if you let the king go to the graveyard, and given his cost it isnt a bad idea. I think Firemind Vessel is actually really good here. Cauldron of Souls could also be interesting. I don't love Nim Deathmantle never have. I really don't like Cover of Darkness .

Honestly, I would just go with Alela, Artful Provocateur . On a mana-for-mana basis, you're probably going to get more tokens out of her with cantripping enchantments before you even consider the effects cards like Etchings of the Chosen , Anointed Procession , Cover of Darkness , Kindred Discovery , or Dire Undercurrents have on the game.
If you insist on sticking with Oona, though, you'll probably want Painter's Servant and infinite mana combos.

The one bit of advice I would give is to think of Alela like a slivers deck, in that each enchantment or artifact gives you a 1/1 body with an effect. From there, you can start making some objective decisions about what you want your "slivers" to look like. I've put together a rough draft myself that's a little heavier on the enchantress side, but here are some of the cards on my short list I don't see here:
Anointed Procession - Imagine a 1/1 Sliver for 4 that makes a token whenever you play a sliver. Would definitely make most casual sliver decks.
True Conviction - Hey, it's Bonescythe Sliver and Siphon Sliver in one! You get the idea.

Here are some creature cards I'd like to add soon:
Dusk Legion Zealot , Cordial Vampire , Cruel Celebrant Knight of the Ebon Legion , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Changeling Outcast , Vampire Cutthroat , Duskborne Skymarcher . Lastly Purphoros, God of the Forge for amazing damage potential when i get the spare cash.
Some other cards I would like to get are the following:
Some Cards I'm considering:
Finally some Wishlist cards I hope to get sooner or later, but are more pricey:

Also isn't 32 lands too low?

Shared Animosity , Reconnaissance , and (depending on your meta) Cover of Darkness are your 3 best finishers here. Recon is especially gross as it allows you to attack with EVERYONE safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 140 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

You might want more ramp. Fellwar Stone , Orzhov Signet , Boros Signet , Rakdos Signet , Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Hierarchy , and Talisman of Conviction are your best options that don't cost an arm and a leg.
