I also run a Hallar deck, and I'm liking yours a lot. You have a lot of stuff that I don't.
Here are some suggestions that I've found useful:
- Forge of Heroes
- New Horizons
- Primeval Bounty
- Blessings of Nature
- Hunger of the Howlpack
- Immaculate Magistrate
- Emblazoned Golem
In general, I've found that a good way to play Hallar is to focus on providing a lot of +1/+1 counters and then using a few cheap kicker spells to trigger Hallar. I tend to avoid most kickers that are expensive or that require multiple colored mana whenever possible. I also like to use something like Reclaim to get back a cheap kicker so I can potentially trigger Hallar twice in one turn.
I might recommend cutting out some of the more expensive cards, like:
Another fun way to play Hallar if you include a lot of cards that put +1/+1 counters on creatures is to include cards like:

There is not much in your colors for card draw, I don't know if you need it. Here are a couple good options for it though Yavimaya Elder , Nantuko Shaman , Explore , Citanul Woodreaders , and Bequeathal . Explore looks the best to me, but yavimaya elder seems pretty good too.

it looks pretty voltron, because of that i would run Ranger's Guile another save. maybe Harrow and Cultivate because the deck is already really mana intensive with kickers plus you always want to be able replay your general. Rabid Bite would be really nice there. i love that you have a few ping creatures as well to help finish the game did you choose the ones you did because they ping each opponent? i would suggest Spikeshot Goblin for the versatility, specially because it synergies so well with your deck already.
other then that i think Podkomorkas cut suggestions are spot on. and i got really excited to see Citanul Woodreaders fit so perfectly into your deck. that cards amazing!
hope that helps! i would love to know how hes playing!

A few suggestions:
Shape of the Wiitigo is quite expensive for what it does
Primeval Bounty expensive card for what it does
Primal Vigorchances of you casting this, then passing and letting your opponents use it first are high, imo.
Death's Presence you don't have that many creature to benefit from this.
Ashling the Pilgrim seems like a weak board wipe. Might be okay, though, but expensive.
Jugan, the Rising Star is just kinda bad, and you can do better for 6 aman
Rage Forger1 damage across 2-3 creatures won't make a big difference, even if it's across a few turns.
Soul's Might I don't think this is good.
Verduran Emissary Scrounging Bandar Keldon Overseer Fungal Behemoth Citanul Woodreaders Burst Lightning seem okay, but work nicely with what you're trying to do. Maximising on kicker is the way to go, imo.
Rishkar's Expertise goes in almost every green deck. It's crazy good, especially with a giant commander.

Actually, I would say you would do well to include Shamanic Revelation, Citanul Woodreaders, Inspiring Call, and/or Armorcraft Judge. The first can bring your life back up if you are low, the second fits the main theme of the deck and the last two round out the subtheme. Also, Kalonian Hydra and Vigor are fun creatures. The first makes your next Hallar trigger ridiculous and the latter makes any form of damage based interactions unpleasant for the opponent. Blasphemous Act anyone?

Cool deck! But I do have some suggestions.
First of all, I think you can probably change most of those vanilla creatures for more versatile options without making the deck more expensive or too competitive. Citanul Woodreaders has a big butt while also optionally giving you some card advantage. Courser of Kruphix will get you life, improve your land drops and virtually draw you some cards. Selvala, Explorer Returned will give you life, mana and cards. Silklash Spider will wreck opposing flyers AND is a 2/7 body.
Also, some other random additions:
Since your creatures have such a high toughness, Pestilence can help you control the board (specially against the tokens you pointed as a weakness) while also chipping away at your opponent's life.
Asceticism will do wonders protecting your creatures with its Hexproof AND Regeneration.
If you want, take a look at my somewhat similar Ikra Sidiqi deck. It's also based on big-toughness creatures, but revolves more around Ikra's lifegain ability: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ikra-shidiqis-big-butts/

I don't know what budget you are looking at but Harmonize or Carven Caryatid might be better than Citanul Woodreaders. It might also be good look into Gaea's Revenge instead of Terra Stomper it has positives and negative but it cant get him by paths and stuff so i prefer it.
