I agree, rats are amazing :)!

For such an amazing theme, you should include some amazing ramp and lands. You do have a mono deck, so I understand lands can be a bit difficult, however I have some in mind that may be of interest to you.

As for ramp, I would consider some of the following.

Also in general, I would consider adding Rat Colony, Necropotence, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent. Some of the cards I mentioned previously may be on the expensive side, but I promise they are worth it and can help your deck perform much much better! If you want any more advice or have any questions feel free to post them on my wall, I'd love to help and I check tapped out often. Also feel free to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH! If you like it consider upvoting it, or giving me any suggestions. Anyways, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

Swarmyard? To regenerate Hornet Nest when you make it fight.

A few more suggestions:

Swarmyard is a fantastic land in this deck and can help keep your spiders alive much more efficiently than any protection spell.

Coat of Arms is an awesome finisher in any Tribal deck. I play it in many of my decks, waiting to play it on a turn I think I can win in one shot or at least kill an opponent who would actually benefit from it. I think it's a much more valuable card to have than Metallic Mimic.

Piper of the Swarm to give your rats menace and maybe Archetype of Aggression to give them trample? Also Swarmyard seems like a must run.

I would have Swarmyard in the deck but it's a $25 dollar card and this is a budget deck.

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.
