Biogenic Upgrade Discussion

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.
iNinjy on GOOD beans

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.
Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route
Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,
Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.
Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.
Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

Anthroplasm is a weird one that you can make as big or small as you want depending on available mana.
Bred for the Hunt is good card draw if everything has counters anyways.
Gilder Bairn is like Vorel but untaps to double counters.

If you were going on counters you could put Simic Ascendancy , Vorel of the Hull Clade , Inexorable Tide and also Biogenic Upgrade . Can I also steal some ideas to put into my own deck, on tapped out?
SirQuixano on bears

I would personally look into changelings, which are all creature types at the same time, so they count as bears. Universal Automaton is a good cheap one, alongside Game-Trail Changeling , which can be good lategame due to trample, Webweaver Changeling can block fliers, Changeling champion is quite large for its cost, and Chameleon Colossus can get big fast. The latter two are a bit pricey, but they work. Biogenic Upgrade is also nice for the lategame to make certain bears absolutely ridiculous. If you want to keep a bear alive, like your commander, I'd suggest cards like Regeneration , Carapace , Gaea's Embrace , Refresh , Serpent Skin , and Seedling Charm . Looks like a neat deck overall.
