Duplicating Koko is awesome too. Blade of Selves is hilarious. It is my favorite card in the format, and was actually the inspiration for making the deck. Does very well on Kokusho, Gary, or Disciple.
Mirror of the Forebears is awesome too. According to EDHREC I'm the only one with it ina kokusho deck. Since there are no other dragons you name Spirit (this came in handy once when I was able to make a second Crypt Ghast and made a ton of mana.)
It ends up being a terrific sac outlet. I bring Kokusho back from the grave, then activate Mirror to kill Kokusho, then attack with Mirror, then Reanimate Kokusho again, and he dies instantly... it's a sac outlet for the entire rest of the turn.
Mirage Mirror is also a great card. Very versatile. I will often double activate it, making it become Kokusho, but before that resolves I activate it again making it into a Cabal Coffers, then tap it, then let it become Kokusho.
Mimic Vat has been really fun too. And... I think those are all my ways to duplicate Koko.
Oh yeah, also Mirrorpool which is spendy to activate but had saved the game for me when i had no sac outlet.

Its not budget at the moment but Swarmyard should be here if you can swing it.
Also Since you are running the token doublers Renowned Weaver I think is the only other mono green option that makes spiders. However, you could run Helm of the Host and Mimic Vat which would put token copies of your spiders on the board for doubling. There is also Birthing Boughs which makes shapeshifters that are spiders. Riptide Replicator does too but its over all investment is high.

Ok, I have a couple of combos that are pretty versatile, and very easily go infinite. Here they are:
Coretapper + Mimic Vat This combo provides 3 charge counters a turn, every turn, for just 3 mana each time. What makes it infinite? Well, one of the things you can do with 3 counters every turn is take infinite turns. Just put those counters on Magistrate's Scepter, and your opponent will never get another turn. If you want, you could create this combo again, and create as many 9/9s as you like, with Titan Forge, or destroy as many permanents as you like, with Lux Cannon
It's always an Infinite ETB trigger and Infinite Death trigger combo.
Arcbound Ravager, Megatog, Blood Aspirant, Bloodflow Connoisseur, and Carrion Feeder grow infinite P/T from it (Megatog's growth only lasts the turn, but he also gets trample, so he doesn't need to keep the increase).

I would definitely suggest adding in Mimic Vat. It's incredibly flexible, and you can Populate the token and keep that copy. The tokens from Desolation Twin and Phyrexian Processor can be hilarious with Trostani. Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage can Populate multiple times so I'd try to find a space for it. And Phyrexian Rebirth is a great wrath for this deck.
I agree with the first post regarding Explosive Vegetation. I'd personally run Rampant Growth, but if not I'd recommend swapping it for Circuitous Route since it can also find the guildgate, or Skyshroud Claim since you get those lands untapped and it can find duals (in which case I'd also add in Scattered Groves and Temple Garden if possible).
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the big token doublers: Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, and Rhys the Redeemed. But since this is a deck for someone else who's new to the game I can understand why you might not want to include those. But they're always worth mentioning for anything that churns out tokens.
I hope some of that helps : )
