Garruk's Uprising is a good draw source when you populate 5/5 dragon tokens.
Brawn is a good creature to sacrifice early. It is more annoying for your opponents to deal with. The effect works from the graveyard, and draws out graveyard removal.

When it comes to reanimation targets, you want creatures that function identically to spells. Removal spells, draw spells, etc. That way you can go all-in on the reanimation strategy while also pulling off interaction at the same time. With that in mind...
Solemn Simulacrum for ramp and draw
Etali, Primal Storm because he's just straight value
Flayer of the Hatebound can deal lots of damage in a reanimator style deck
Worldgorger Dragon goes infinite with Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and Necromancy very easily. Then you have infinite mana to do stuff with. It's worth the price tag and is a wincon in reanimator cEDH decks.
Phylath, World Sculptor can make tons of tokens and is more budget friendly
Vilis, Broker of Blood is surprisingly budget, and takes over any game
Gray Merchant of Asphodel is designed to be reanimated as many times as possible
Any of the eldrazi that shadow63 mentioned
I'm mostly familiar with mono-red reanimator because of my commander Feldon of the Third Path. He would work great in a reanimator deck, too. Especially one with lots of creature-based shenanigans. Also, Chainer, Nightmare Adept is great at reanimating. He also gives Korvold haste and any creature you have in hand (provided you discard it and cast it from the yard).

Here's a list to consider. Some are expensive, some will make you lose friends, and some are just jank.
Some board control can come in the form of Cyclonic Rift
Some other funny creatures to include might be Archetype of Endurance, Protean Hulk, Progenitor Mimic, Beguiler of Wills (as long as you have enough creatures), and Seedborn Muse (there's more that's just a few)
If you're needing more token generation, Avenger of Zendikar can provide that (however brief), and it has a similar effect to Mycoloth (which you have already), and that gets plain dumb when you pair it with ETB-affected cards like Kapsho Kitefins (and it buffs Ezuri when you have token doublers on field). Also Ezuri gets really happy when you Clone Legion someone with a bunch of tiny tokens on their field
and finally, one of my favourite combos to this day...

unwucht, Carpet of Flowers should be a great way to make the deck faster and provide an over abundance of mana to empty into one of our sinks, most specifically Finale of Devastation. BTW I cut the Forest and replaced it with Dryad Arbor. So if we roll out an early Tooth and Nail that isn’t quite ready for Craterhoof Behemoth/Avenger of Zendikar, we can grab Emiel the Blessed/Dockside Extortionist for infinite mana (assuming there are at least 4 enchantments/artifacts on your opponent’s field). This will give us the win with a fetch grabbing the Dryad. Assuming it checked out, I had a turn 4 win with that combo in testing. Also, Chromatic Orrery has won me over in testing and will become a permanent in my list. Normally I’d say the card is too expensive and not worth the add, but it is so easy to get out by turn 4-5. Plus, I’ve known people to spend the same amount of mana into a Zendikar Resurgent and to me I feel like I get more out of the orrery.

Room can certainly be made for more powerful win-cons but I intentionally built this one to be lower-power so I can play it at casual tables.

At first glance here are some recommendations I have that would fit right in: Avenger of Zendikar, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Dockside Extortionist, Parcelbeast, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Risen Reef, Tireless Tracker, Sakashima the Impostor, Spark Double, Wayward Swordtooth, Burgeoning, Sylvan Library, Valakut Exploration, Finale of Devastation, Finale of Revelation, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Amulet of Vigor, Ketria Triome, Raugrin Triome, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds a few bounce lands such as Gruul Turf, Selesnya Sanctuary, Simic Growth Chamber. I also would agree with and multimedia. Fetch lands and shock lands are crucial to have in this build, as well as having the tutors that have been recommended.
I feel like you are very light on draw, so a lot of my recommendations point to that. Mutate Parcelbeast on Scute Swarm with Risen Reef in play = insane draw. Play more land cards are always great to have in landfall decks. I didn’t suggest this, but you could add a sub theme of flicker effects to abuse Omnath, Locus of Creation landfall triggers. Clone cards that can copy Omnath and ignore legendary rule to use as a triggered ability doubler can have overwhelming results.
If I can provide anymore assistance, feel free to let me know. Good luck with your brew!
