Surely you chuck in the Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond, and, Sporemound + Life and Limb infinite combos. I enjoy cards like Fungal Sprouting, Second Harvest, Ivy Lane Denizen, Anointer Priest and Might of the Masses when I'm going big/wide.

Oookay ... cracks fingers
In a +1/+1 counter deck, you really want creatures with persist. They almost never die for good in this environment. Creatures with undying are normally less ideal, but with Zameck Guildmage, you can immediately use that spare +1/+1 counter on the returned creature to draw a card. You could play those instead of bad draw spells like Counsel of the Soratami or Divination. Amass the Components is ... meh.
Let's come to the landbase: Unknown Shores are bad and you don't need bad fixing in a two-color deck (and even if you needed the fixing, I'd run Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade first before considering sth like the Shores). Do you know Opal Palace and Path of Ancestry ? I'd recommend playing 36 lands total as well.
I hope this was of some help to you.

Ghave, Guru of Spores is awesome!
I'm a big fan of cards like Forgotten Ancient, Ivy Lane Denizen, Ashnod's Altar, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Khalni Garden, Corpsejack Menace, Hardened Scales, Evolutionary Escalation and Retribution of the Ancients.

Which idea? The +1/+1 counters with Rishkar, Peema Renegade?
Yeah, I stewed over that for a while. Ivy Lane Denizen is so underrated :p

Phaetion Here's the link to Hallar's bio. - https://78.media.tumblr.com/d82bdbe94e4f86d7ed1a14dc739ffdd5/tumblr_p7cme7ynhV1u9beo8o2_1280.jpg
As for thoughts on the deck itself, I've had luck with cutting down on some of the more mediocre kickers and adding an elfball theme in to ramp and pay the costs. You should also be putting in some more cards that play with counters, as kicking isn't the only way to make Hallar grow. Some cards I think you're missing:
Joraga Warcaller - Easily the best kicker spell in this deck. Comes down cheap, boosts your commander, and benefits from other +1/+1 counter spells.
Rishkar, Peema Renegade - Gives Hallar something to do when they can't attack.
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - She can easily tap for 6+ mana in this deck.
Marwyn, the Nurturer - Gets big fast and ramps just as quickly.
Wirewood Symbiote - Absurdly underrated. At least, it's a way to bounce Hallar that can't be interacted with, as the bounce is a cost and not an ability. At most, it untaps one of your dorks or powerful tappers to double the fun.
Ivy Lane Denizen - The bulk of your creatures are green, so Hallar will grow quickly with him in play.
Immaculate Magistrate - Will always put at least 2 counters on Hallar each turn, maybe more. Can get out of hand quickly.
Kalonian Hydra - Read that effect, then come back to me and tell me it isn't perfect. Go ahead.
Ring of Valkas - Gives Hallar haste and grows them each of your turns.
Ancient Animus - Not super flashy, but it pumps your commander and will almost always kill a dude, and only for 2 mana.
Chandra's Ignition - Always a good board wipe and potential wincon if you have a big elf on board.
Let me know your thoughts on these guys, and hope I at least cleared up the confusion surrounding Hallar's pronouns!

I thought about Flourishing Defenses but Nest of Scarabs is a cheaper and more effective substitute and I already have a lot of enchantments. Because of this, Ivy Lane Denizen wouldn't be a great fit.
