Hey Man! Cool deck idea, perhaps I can help a bit.
Obviously Firespout , Pyroclasm , Crush the Weak , Fiery Confluence and Anger of the Gods are good options for you to ping or clear boards. Some of the odd ones are Hail Storm and Magma Vein . Chaos Maw and Cinder Giant are cool options here as well.

As a lower curve, I would take out Blightwidow as you are not intending to win with poison counters and creatures with infect can only do damage in the form of poison counters. You could add in Sporeweb Weaver. I might also consider cutting Juvenile Gloomwidow and add Snarespinner as it is much more likely to outright kill flyer than to just die and give it a -1/-1 counter. I would also cut Kessig Recluse as you are trying to win mostly by using Assault Formation (I assume) and you already have Deadly Recluse and Basilisk Collar for the deathtouch protection. In its place Chainweb Aracnir and you will have a much more aggressive curve to swarm your opponent with and cast Arachnogenesis. You will probably need to add some card draw as well so that you don't run out of fuel. Harmonize or Lead the Stampede in place of Accorder's Shield will make it better. The reason I chose Accorder's Shield is because to bring it out and equip it the same turn will cost and so will bringing out and equipping Slagwurm Armor, but Slagwurm Armor gives more of a buff. The minor upside to Accorder's Shield is that you can drop all of your mana on a spider and then cast Accorder's Shield same turn.

You and I think quite alike, it seems. Seeing how our peers have designed their decks has helped me a lot as well. :)
I've been sharing your sentiments regarding sacrifice and discard outlets. That is actually the prime reason I've added Fauna Shaman, Tortured Existence, Bontu the Glorified and Greater Good, although their effects are good on their own as well.
Targeted graveyard hate is definitely the most glaring weakness of this type of deck. I have also ruminated a lot on how to solve the Bojuka Bog problem. Like you suggest, among the most prominent inclusions are Aegis of the Gods and Leyline of Sanctity. In addition, I've also considered running Orbs of Warding, Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Sigarda, Heron's Grace. Out of these, Aegis of the Gods is the one I'm the most likely to add. I find them all a bit difficult to add to my list, however. The angels don't give you hexproof in the graveyard. They, and Leyline all cost 4 mana which is a little too pricy. Aegis has the upside of being only two mana, but I really want to try and limit the amount of creatures without keywords. I may refrain from adding it until after that time I get completely blown out by a Bojuka Bog lol.
Oh, and my favourite secret weapon is equipping Lord of Extinction with Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots and place all the keyword counters on it with Kathril. Not so subtle, but very effective. People tend to hyperfocus on the fact that Kathril is in the command zone. :)

Hi. Thank you for bringing up some suggestions for the deck.
Something I discovered while playing this deck is that I found it detrimental to run cards that don't do much on their own. Bassara Tower Archer and Sunblade Angel, both of which ran at the time, fall into this category. The hexproof from the archer and the keywords on sunblade were both great to have in the graveyard, but it felt really bad the times where I drew them or was otherwise forced to play them. That is why I swapped Bassara Tower Archer for Sporeweb Weaver, which for one more mana has a better body, and can shore up my defenses more easily.
Similarly, the knights that you suggest are both cheap, great ways of getting hexproof in the graveyard, but, at least in my opinion, run into the same problem of being subpar cards to play on their own.
That being said, I have considered them both as potential inclusions in the case I need more cheap hexproof creatures. I agree with you that Hexproof is one of our most important keywords, so if the need arises, I may include the knights and/or Bassara Tower Archer.
Again, thanks for the suggestions. :)

Hello, what are your thoughts on Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice? They can also provide hexproof, which I think is (on par with Indestructible and Double Strike) the most important keyword in this deck.

Watch out! Ishkanah, Grafwidow has a black activated ability, which means it does not belong in your commander's colour identity.
Assault Formation beefs up your spiders very efficiently and has built-in pump, as well.
Kindred Summons is a very good way to flood the board of spiders quickly.
Coat of Arms is an outstanding finisher. I find it more effective than Eldrazi Monument.
Seasons Past is a great fit in this deck.
Sporeweb Weaver has tons of relevant text.
You're playing a lot fogs. Constant Mists seems better than Respite or Fog.
