Distribute three +1/+1 counters among one, two, or three target creatures, then double the number of +1/+1 counters on each of those creatures.

Biogenic Upgrade Discussion

:O You're running Mowu without Jiang that's illegal
In all seriousness, Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter is a good card and would help ramp.
Biogenic Upgrade is OP with Mowu as well. Thoroughly recommend it.

Yes, Biogenic Upgrade is excellent, often the surprise win from nowhere. I have not had the opportunity to play with The Ozolith yet, but don't know if it is needed. Also, I might misunderstand the rulings of The Ozolith. I interpret it as a mandatory move of all the counters to the Ozolith if Skullbriar, the Walking Grave leaves the battlefield, which I don't want to happen.

Gladehart Cavalry and Sandsteppe Mastodon don't seem to be doing a lot for you. In low budget games grind is the name of the game and you're severely lacking in draw power. Even something simple like Lead the Stampede can push you ahead in the game. Camaraderie is likely 10x better than either Biogenic Upgrade or Incremental Growth.
Evolutionary Escalation can also easily replace any or your more synergy based +1/+1 counter generators and your commander has a super secret mode of stealing the counters from the opponent's creature.

If you want big counters, Biogenic Upgrade (good for Animar and up to 2 hydras if you want) is pretty good though admittedly high cmc, or there’s Give / Take which is a smaller counter boost, but can be massive card draw if you’re struggling with that. Hadana's Climb Flip is also really good at temporarily doubling a creature’s power/toughness with bonus flying.
I have an Ezuri deck (Ezuri, Claw of Progress) which runs on counters so if you want to take a look, it’s a budget simic counters/trample/unblockable creatures stuff.

Biogenic Upgrade is a card I’d recommend for hydras/counter-based creatures.
You don’t seem to run too much card draw — Greater Good is nice as it also helps fill the graveyard too.

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:
Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.
