quite a decent Krenko build! +1 As you already have Magewright's Stone in your list and go untap effects you might also consider Illusionist's Bracers.

With Thornbite Staff you might want additional ways to kill your own 1/1s at instant speed to go infinite. Ashnod's Altar and Goblin Sharpshooter are two possible means to do so.

Fiery Emancipation is a sweet damage increase. However, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is way cheaper to cast (on the downside of being easier to be removed) and fits close to the same purpose.

Also, you might want additional haste enablers. I recommended Ogre Battledriver in addition to the already implemented Fervor. You are in red and probably will not be able to tutor for them reliably. So put in more. :)

Feel free to have a look at my own Krenko build Krenko Token Spam

your average mana costs seem a bit high. you have 13 CMC 5+ creatures. that's over 1/3 of your creatures and definitely way too many considering you only run 35 lands and maybe 6 mana ramp effects.

i don't think you need haste enablers all that much personally, but between Crashing Drawbridge Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden i'd cut urabrask and probably the drawbridge even since it can't attack.

i know you're running Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Rune-Scarred Demon as tutors, but consider that since they're so expensive that you can't really play them AND sneak attack etc. in a turn. you really want tutors to be as cheap as possible.

consider adding Scroll of Fate as another way to cheat things in.

Oh and I dunno if it can be abused but AFAIK you're allowed to pump creatures that ETB'd on the current turn before you tap Alena, Kessig Trapper for mana. Ogre Battledriver?

Yeah, it's pretty fun, DoktaDakka. I'm thinking of turning it into a more aggressive deck with less mana-exspensive cards like Myr Battlesphere, God-Eternal Rhonas, and Primeval Titan, but more cards like Ogre Battledriver, Bloodbraid Elf, and Champion of Lambholt. Also, if you really like the concept, then you could try and build a Yarok, the Desecrated commander deck. https://edhrec.com/commanders/yarok-the-desecrated

Sundial of the Infinite could be used to keep the pig's friends in play. Activate it when the delayed return to hand trigger goes on the stack, fizzling the trigger and keeping the creature on the field.
