Feed the Pack
At the beginning of your end step, you may sacrifice a nontoken creature. If you do, put X 2/2 green Wolf creature tokens onto the battlefield, where X is the sacrificed creature's toughness.

Heya! Nice deck, would just like to share some of my findings from my own experiments
Nightshade Peddler makes all your fights lethal.
I've found Wren's Run Packmaster to be pretty sub optimal since most of the time the only elf you really have access to is your commander himself and I'd rather have Tolsimir in play.
Feed the Pack i've always found to be pretty suboptimal for 6 mana, also alot of the non-token creatures usually happen to be super synergistic and I don't usually want to remove them. Depending on your meta Wolfcaller's Howl can be pretty meh too.
Lastly, I had a larger land ramp package so I could make use of Howl of the Night Pack. Card can end the game all by itself!

Here's my Hogaak deck. I wanted to play Hogaak as soon as possible (to swing face)! To that end... pumping Hogaak +5/+x (with cards like Become Immense) or Grafted Exoskeleton lets you two-shot people with commander damage.

Wow, great deck! Nice, it's on a decent budget. A card that would fit in the deck is Feed the Pack. If you have a creature with a death trigger, like Chasm Skulker or Hangarback Walker, it works incredibly well.

Hey! Thanks for the feedback; I'm glad to hear that the deck may have inspired you! I'm playtesting some changes that involve swapping out Vannifar for Helm of Possession, but I haven't gotten any games in yet to test that change. This is only because I'm currently trying out a more value-oriented build. That is a really neat combo! I think it could work here. I did have more of a focus on Birthing Pod/Vannifar combos in my list at one point, which included Kiki-Jiki to combo with Zealous Conscripts. If you want to focus on pod/vannifar, I'd consider running more creature tutors to increase consistency with finding Vannifar/other creatures in the pod chains. Stuff like Green Sun's Zenith, Eldritch Evolution, Natural Order, Tooth and Nail, Fauna Shaman. You could even throw in Neoform, which you could use to sac Yasova herself to get Vannifar, or to get 2 pod effects in 1 turn. I'm not sure of a great way to get 5 xp counters at once with Ezuri... maybe Feed the Pack? It is slow at 6 cmc though, and the timing of the end step to get the tokens doesn't work as nicely with the combat step timing of Ezuri. Spawning Pit would be decent, if you can get some counters on it to instantly spit out tokens for xp counters.
What power level are you looking to play at? Depending on how many cards you want to swap out for the combo, I'd look at cutting some of the generic value cards like Mind's Dilation, Etali, Stolen Strategy, and maybe even things like Insurrection and Mob Rule. I don't have experience with building this as a dedicated combo deck, so this is just my first gut reaction. Also, if you really like the idea of builing around Vannifar, you could just build Vannifar as the commander as well. Also, I couldn't find room in my list for them yet, but you could also use stuff like Bazaar Trader, Conjurer's Closet, and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling to permanently keep the creatures you steal.

Might I suggest Feed the Pack? It basically gets you 24 2/2 wolves every turn because you just keep sacrificing Ghalta to it.

Needs more Vigor. You can resolve Vigor's replacement effect before resolving Polukranos's, so it gains counters instead of losing them. Does wonders for your other creatures as well. It will be a removal magnet, though. You could lean into the +1/+1 counter theme more with Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Ivy Lane Denizen, and/or Renata, Called to the Hunt. Armorcraft Judge can provide more draw power, as can Rishkar's Expertise. Or you could go wide with Feed the Pack or Korozda Guildmage.

I would put a LOT more creatures. In my opinion, you are running WAY to many useless enchantments or artifacts like Hardened Scales which doesn't really do much, and Gift of Immortality which has little to no utility in the deck. With only 23 creatures, I just don't see you getting much value out of your commanders trigger. I also don't really like Feed the Pack , but that's just personal preference
Other cutables could include Xenagos, the Reveler as he really only ramps, and since you already have so much ramp, he feels like filler. Swap Bow of Nylea with a creature, because giving you already massive creatures deathtouch pales in comparison to another beefy creature like Ghalta, Primal Hunger or Zacama, Primal Calamity , however she is very expensive. Otherwise, I love this brew and it has a lot of potential
