Solitary Confinement is another great pillow fort card, especially with this commander. Alhammarret's Archive , Temple Bell and Otherworld Atlas also synergize well with it. Sphere of Safety is another great pillow fort card. Starfield of Nyx will turn all of your pillow fort cards into creatures to get aggressive with as well as a free recursion on your upkeep. To turn up the agro Furnace of Rath and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight are great for one-on-ones, especially when you have your pillow fort cards up. Aetherflux Reservoir can get really dumb with a ton of mana to drop a bunch of spells quick. Trostani, Selesnya's Voice can be really good with big creature drops, especially with your hydras and that Rampaging Baloths . Hydra Broodmaster is a great mana sink as well.

I might suggest these as good staples powerhouses of green you may have not seen, Vigor, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Elderscale Wurm, Wolfir Avenger, Primordial Hydra, Avatar of the Resolute, Fog and my favorite green planeswalker Garruk Relentless  Flip because he can sacrifice those wolves he creates and can search out any creature you want for an instant win con card like Vigor, Hydra Broodmaster, etc And best removal for green, Beast Within. Vigor beause who doesn't want near impossible to kill creatures in combo with Asceticism. Elderscale Wurm essentially makes you immortal. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger aggressive mana ramp that controls the opponent board pretty well. Wolfir Avenger good frontline fighter and can regen against fields of death touch or act as a good buffer. Primordial Hydra can win the game hands down within 2-3 turns of coming out. Avatar of the Resolute good utility creature that acts as either a frontline fighter or defense against big fliers as well as Deadly Recluse Fog has saved my bacon more than a few times if they had something could bypass all of that defense. Garruk Relentless  Flip transforms and his +1 and -1 are invaluable for swarming and searching out win cons.

Wall of RootsSylvan Caryatid

are great mana ramps.

Hooded Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster is one of my favorites, Managorger Hydra and Protean Hydra are all possible suggestions.

I think 4 of worldspine and nykthos is too much. Worldspine is great but hes is to expensive, and way to vulnerable to exiling. And the nykthos is legendary, so you can only have 1 out at a time.

Ive made a deck with mono green ramp that I loved, but it is way to vulnerable to negates, or destruction, or aggro decks. This needs way more protection or way way faster ramp to get the big guys out quicker or else it will this deck will not survive. Unfortunately its not competitive enough, which i hate because I loved my ramp hydra deck too.

A nice take on a Jund token deck, Prossh is one of my favorite commanders simply for the fact of his ability and the craziness that can ensue with using it.

Some ideas for the deck that I found fun and useful in my days of running Prossh:

Doubling Season(not a good idea if you're trying to stay budget)

Food Chain (nasty infinite combo with your commander that can easily swing for lethal)

Awakening Zone(great for early game ramp and devour and good sac fodder)

Beastmaster Ascension (if you are generating a lot lil dudes, this will activate quickly and be absolutely devastating)

Garruk, Primal Hunter (spits out 3/3 beasts, gives you card advantage, and his ultimate is crushing)

Growth Spasm (I notice a lack of ramp spells, this gives you a land AND a 0/1 eldrazi spawn for ramp)

Xenagos, the Reveler (This guy and your commander is ballistic when it comes to ramp, plus he spits out 2/2s)

Skullclamp (excellent card draw equipment)

Chromatic Lantern (IMO a must have in any deck three or more colors)

Eldrazi Monument (+1/+1 and indestructible as long as you can sac a creature)

Grave Titan (Big body and spits out 2 2/2 zombies whenever he enters or attacks)

Avenger of Zendikar (the ultimate token generator and pumper)

Hydra Broodmaster (Great to dump extra mana into and very derpy with any doubling effect)

Creeperhulk (personal favorite, turns any puny 1/1 into a formidable 5/5)

Pharika, God of Affliction (a decent indestructible body that gives you 1/1 deathtouch snakes)

Eternal Witness (When things don't go as plan or you just want to something again)

Praetor's Counsel (When things go really awry, another personal favorite)

Reliquary Tower (No max hand size is always a plus in EDH, ALWAYS)

Bojuka Bog (For those decks who have too much fun with their graveyards)

Genesis Wave (The ability to put have your deck on your battlefield is a experience second to none)

Hornet Queen (Flying and deathtouch are the most intimidating combos in EDH)

Including some enchantment and artifact destruction helps as well.

The list was a wee bit longer than I anticipated but I hope it was helpful! You're off to great start and tokens/+1 counters is one of my favorite archetypes in EDH, I hope you enjoy it as much!

First thing I have to say, that mana base is Disgusting. You have absolutely no need for Wooded Foothills, you have no mountains at all. replace those with forests. you have literally two black cards in your entire deck, and neither of them are needed for your deck to function or survive. take out all of those shocks and fetches, you only need forests. No black cards needed. now that we freed up some spaces for good cards, add in Kalonian Hydra, or pretty much any other hydra. Primordial Hydra, Heroes' Bane, and Hydra Broodmaster, are just a few.

No problem - I play the ramp package in a mono-green Pauper Eldrazi deck. I also have used it in a populate deck - super fun with Hydra Broodmaster. Good luck!

Interesting, my first ever deck was a blue/green deck that I used to play with several friends back when I was in high school. We didn't bother with formats at first, although later we did start commander.

It use to have an Arcanis the Omnipotent, Prophet of Kruphix, Hydra Broodmaster, Heroes' Bane, Explosive Vegetation, Archetype of Endurance, Roil Elemental, Horizon Chimera, AEtherspouts, Plasm Capture, Sigiled Starfish, Courser of Kruphix, and later some things like a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. It was all about ramp, and large threats.

We just played casual 60 card decks, although for whatever reason mine was usually more like 80 as there was always so many cards I wanted to cram into it and I tried to justify it by the Scrying and card draw it had but it was a bit much still. This became eventually my first commander deck with Vorel of the Hull Clade.
