Have you thought of adding Deep Forest Hermit and Palace Siege ? Hermit comes down with extra bodies, and siege gives gives you more graveyard recursion. Also Swiftfoot Boots for additional protection/haste for korvold or another creature if you already have lightning grieves out

I really had hoped to find the Earl at this deck's helm. Gorgeous it is!
Is there a reason to not include Deep Forest Hermit ? It would be pretty powerful here.

Lots of nice things here.
Palinchron goes infinite with Yarok, so I'd recommend that.
I think Villainous Wealth is just a bad card. I think there a better things to be doing with infinite mana. Without infinite mana it's just not strong enough unless X = 15 or something. And in that case I would rather play Torment of Hailfire .
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds gives creatures flash, but that's already granted by Leyline of Anticipation and Alchemist's Refuge . I don't think you need a 3rd redundant effect like this. Vivien is also much more vulnerable than these two other cards.
Force of Negation can be replaced with Swan Song and I think it would just be better. Force of Negation is a strong card, but I don't think you need to be concerned with it unless your deck is angled towards having 1) tons of blue cards and 2) wants to counter many things.
I think your list doesn't contain enough ramp.

Here are some cards that just get the ball rolling a bit faster:
Cryptolith Rite turns all your tokens and GrumGully into mana dorks to power out spells faster.
If you really like the "army in a box" creatures like Seige Gang Commander then you may want Avenger of Zendikar , Deep Forest Hermit , or Deranged Hermit . If you combine these cards with Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's altar you can make infinite bodies by eating a token and the actual card to generate the 4 mana to pay for the mantle's trigger to recur it immediately. If you REALLY likes these effects I'd also suggest Panharmonicon to double up on the ETBs. Panharmonicon also doubles up Purphuros/Impact Tremors triggers.

wheres the Path to Exile ? no offense but i think its gonna be really hard for you to win with this. your creatures are too small and you have too little removal. theres just not a lot of synergies going on here. i only see 1 ETB effect to use with Ephemerate . you don't have any way of stopping the opponent from killing you before you attempt to cast Deep Forest Hermit on turn 5 (at earliest).

I am not sold on your key combo - Peace of Mind to discard Deep Forest Hermit to reanimate it with Vesperlark is a whole host of moving parts, none of which have suitable redundancies. That said, I think Noose Constrictor is probably an upgrade to Peace of Mind - the body with reach is nifty, and the lack of mana cost in its discard ability is invaluable.
