If you’re still going with a sac theme I’d consider playing Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest.

Some cards I’ve found quite useful are Aether Spellbomb, Glacial Chasm, Halls of Mist, Urza's Bauble, Mishra's Bauble, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Mirror Image, Phantasmal Image, River Kelpie, and Night Incarnate.

Nice deck! You might consider some haste-enablers such as Anger, Bloodsworn Steward, Xenagos, God of Revels, Fervor, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, Lightning Greaves, or Fires of Yavimaya to get huge amounts of burst damage with Prossh and OTK opponents out of nowhere. Also with the amount of tokens you generate, cards that have synergy with armies of tokens (e.g. Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Harvest Season, and Second Harvest) could be very effective, especially if you area able to curve out with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season into Prossh the next turn. Also, cards that can turn your many tokens into mana could have a lot of potential as well. You've already included Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , but the addition of Ashnod's Altar, Thermopod, Pawn of Ulamog Cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Heroic Intervention, Damnation, Crux of Fate, Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could provide the the deck with additional consistency, utility, and power. If you wnt to add another mana-doubling card, Mana Reflection would fill that role. It looks as if you have a bit of a 'sacrifice stuff' subtheme as well, so more cards to add for that could be Barter in Blood, Birthing Pod, Blood Divination Attrition, Awakening Zone, Bloodspore Thrinax, Disciple of Bolas, Eliminate the Competition, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sadistic Hypnotist, Goblin Bombardment, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Other considerations might be Sprouting Thrinax, Goblin Sharpshooter, Atarka, World Render, Grave Titan, Oracle of Mul Daya, Dragonlair Spider, Stalking Vengeance, Tempt with Vengeance, Xenagos, the Reveler, Poison-Tip Archer, Avenger of Zendikar, Fecundity, and Pitiless Plunderer. Those are just a few suggestions, and good luck with the deck!

Hour of Promise or Pir's Whim in place of Solemn Simulacrum. Horn of Greed for land-based card draw. Skullclamp could let you draw from the small tokens. Garruk's Packleader and Elemental Bond let you draw from the big ones. Deathreap Ritual and Smothering Abomination lets you draw from sacrificing tokens. Shamanic Revelation draws lots of cards and gains you life. Symbiotic Deployment works too.

Sporemound makes tokens from landfall and goes infinite with Life and Limb. Dunes of the Dead and Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai are lands that make tokens when they are sacrificed. Helm of the Host is great when equipped to creatures that make tokens. Blade of Selves might work too. Nacatl War-Pride is really strong with token doublers.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Mana Echoes, and Xenagos, the Reveler will generate a lot of mana from tokens. Druids' Repository adds mana when they attack, and Pitiless Plunderer adds mana when they die.

To make your tokens bigger, try Beastmaster Ascension, Guul Draz Overseer, Coat of Arms, Shared Animosity, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Bloodspore Thrinax, Ogre Battledriver, or In the Web of War.

Really impressed with the deck! I love the necrotic ooze combos, brings me back to the Mimeoplasm days... Anywho I wanted to suggest a few cards that I think might work well for you. Dark Prophecy for some sweet card advantage, Night Soil basically free tokens and keeps reanimator decks in check, and Emrakul's Evangel sac all your saprolings and they turn into 3/2s AND you get a bunch of die triggers.

I also really like Reprocess and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest but I figure you want to keep your CMC lower.

RazortoothMtg on Pattern Recognition #79 - Ravnica's ...

I think it's important to note that Test of Metal is mostly regarded as non-canon at this point for various reasons.

Also, as for extra ravnica-based stories after RTR, other than the one where the gatewatch sits around Jace's Sanctum and Dovin Baan shows up, the one with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest was pretty important. I've forgotten enough details that I probably can't summarize it well, but Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord's second in command guy gets a note from the Kraul, who are pretty downtrodden when it comes to politics within the guild, and the Kraul kill him or something. Also Vraska the Unseen and Mazirek are apparently best friends and she's gonna make them the top of the guild when she gains control of it. Wasn't there a bit at the end of Ixalan block where Bolas had kidnapped Jarad to fulfill his promise to make Vraska the Golgari Guildmaster?

Here's the link to the Mazirek article if anyone's interested, since I probably got it very wrong.
