Creature — Dryad
Whenever another nontoken creature enters the battlefield, you may pay . If you do, that creature's controller creates a token that's a copy of that creature.

Some spider suggestions:
And… what about Lolth, Spider Queen?
Edit: with 3.3 cmc, you have a pretty low landcount. I would cut some non-creature-spells

First off: thank you for your upvote and in depth analysis. It really helped to trim some cards
I agree, that the cmc has to be a lil bit lower. My thought was, if I reanimate them I do not have to pay the cost. But sure, 3.5 is a bit high.
I cuttet Phyrexian Triniform as I think, once in a million I can trigger it’s encore. Triplicate Titan on the other hand fits the whole strategy, provides enormous evasion and evasive artifact creatures if it dies. I will give it a try, Hexmark Destroyer connects hard or creates room for other creatures… and is a necron… it’s sooo hard… but doesn’t fit that well.
But I admit that Darksteel Juggernaut is just a resilient but not always big threat… like a “win more” option. Hasn’t made the cut, as well as Diamond Mare, Phyrexian Fleshgorger and Technomancer. The last one was hard, but I do not think that I can abuse it’s ETB often enough. You where also right with Szarekh and Scarecrone, they are new to the list. I like Ugin and thought 1/3 of my spells would be enough, maybe he doesn’t make it… otherwise he provides support in pseudo-card-draw, removal and cost reduction,… have to think about it. Unfortunately Tortured Existence is not in my collection, therefore I didn’t choose it. I made also room for War Room and Phyrexia's Core (and Darksteel Citadel as well… what was I thinking :D
Mind’s Eye should provide a lot of (needed) continuous card-draw. Sculpting Steel was already in the list… but I have to ask… you would cut Mirrorworks? It is an Bramble Sovereign for ANY artifact… creatures as usual artifacts as well… it’s a bomb! :O

Not sure about Thousand-Faced Shadow, though, because usually in other decks it has just died as a chump blocker early game as I have never achieved a good enough board state for it to be useful.
Scute Swarm was overlooked because I thought Yarok, the Desecrated said "creature or artifact," rather than permanent. That makes Avenger of Zendikar even easier to win with and opens up landfall possibilities.

Absolutely love the Wizard tribal subtheme here. Kudos. You could lean into clone tokens to really get some huge ETB triggers:
- Dual Nature would make the game wild, giving two copies of every creature played, including your opponents. With your general, Naban, or Panharmonicon, each ETB trigger would effectively happen SIX times.
- Minion Reflector and Bramble Sovereign are a little safer than Dual Nature, but require a little extra mana for each trigger. But getting more than one of these effects on the field will quickly overwhelm your opponents.
- Necroduality is another copier once Maskwood Nexus is up. Unsure if it'd be worth it otherwise though.
- Elvish Hydromancer and Thousand-Faced Shadow give ETB cloning tokens for some fun chain reactions.
- Replication Technique can copy your ETB creatures but also make copies of Panharmonicon or other enablers.
- Rite of Replication is just nuts if you kick it on a Priest of Gix or anything else really.
- Precursor Golem can generate a ton of bodies and be a great target for your own buffs or shenanigans if you add stuff above.
- Scute Swarm will quickly get out of control once you start making copies of itself. Each land effectively triples your total number of Scute Swarm after 6 lands.

@Wikked I like your deck, especially Bramble Sovereign which I think I will add to my deck too. I can probably cut some of the ramp cards since Henzie will discount the big creatures.

I'm unsure what direction you are planning as you seem to spread out a bit. Here is my suggestion though.
Focus on aristocrats and tokens(preferably saprolings))
Saprolings synergies if you want Psychotrope Thallid
Toski, Bearer of Secrets maybe for additional card draw
Wincon ideas Aristocrats like Blood Artist Overwhelming Stampede Pathbreaker Ibex Yedora, Grave Gardener combo. I don't remember what the other pieces are atm. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth + Life and Limb + way to profit off of every land dying or at least get ahead.

coinfliplarry Olivia is not meant to be blitzed in, her haste makes it so she immediately affects the board without the use of blitz. Olivia does exile the creature that you bring back if and when she dies, and theres a good chance she will die because if she's not taken care of the creatures shes bringing back will certainly overwhelm our opponents with value and combat damage. When Olivia brings back creatures if those creatures die due to anything other then Olivia's clause they don't get exiled. For instance I'll swing with Olivia and bring back a Woodfall Primus, now you have a new body for your Ghoulcaller Gisa, Birthing Pod, Industrial Advancement, or one of my favorites Bramble Sovereign. So you can get the extra value from the creature and it will go right back to your yard if sac'd or in this case back to the battlefield due to the persist on woodfall. Then the next turn the creature is usually sitting back in your yard waiting for Olivia to attack again. If you don't have a sac outlet for additional value you can just start bring back fatties for beats and while a kill spell on Olivia will obviously stop the pain train, thats the case for all non etb cards. Her haste pretty much ensures that you should usually be able to get at least one attack trigger in. My playgroup has learned the hard way that Olivia is a kill on sight creature in the mid to late game. Bringing back creatures for free every turn that are already attacking is an effect that should not be overlooked especially in a deck whose graveyard is usually filled with beaters, I would suggest the next time you play with the deck think to yourself what if I draw Olivia, and the different possibilities it brings. Drana, the Last Bloodchief is also a legendary vampire in your deck so that would help keep Olivia's clause going if they both happen to b on the field at the same time, even if this is rare.

You can never go wrong with Bramble Sovereign.
Effects like that of Impact Tremors would also be really good.
