Nice Ideas in this Deck. I know you want to keep it budget, but if you can save up for it, you should definitely include Doubling Season and Hardened Scales . Karn's Bastion could be a nice addition. And think about Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and Llanowar Reborn . Either Brawn or Primal Rage or Aggressive Mammoth makes sure all your Hydras get a constant trample. I play Death's Presence in my deck, it combos nicely with stuff like Life's Legacy , Greater Good and lets you "transfer" your counters from one Hydra to another.

I like Hardened Scales but it was slightly pricey for me so I omitted it...for now! I'd replace more Walk the Plank for Fatal Push as well. Llanowar Reborn looks like a nice edition. Thanks for the info!

So after sharing ideas and looking at the direction you were headed with your list i made one of my own. Calling it Retribution Rock. So subtle differences from yours and reasons. Dryad Arbor over a Pendelhaven . i like the idea of fetching a creature to sacrifice. Other lands that peak my interest for this deck Mutavault Bojuka Bog Llanowar Reborn So a huge reason i ran Aether Vial was because of how difficult it can be casting double and triple colors. Many opponents will board in Blood Moon against me even when i was running 4 Channeler Initiate and 4 vials, and surprisingly it always tempo'd me or sometimes shut me down. So Sylvan Caryatid helps reach that triple black, since casting Geralf's Messenger is priority in this build, having a hexproof manadork helps ensure one hits the board. Also the big butt on Caryatid triggers evolve, and can absorb 2 -1/-1 counters from Plague Belcher in a pinch. Speaking of, that extra damage from a zombie dying from the Belcher can really mean the difference, hence i strongly believe in running a playset. I really look forward to my Tuesday night modern. I really look forward to pilot the deck and have creative lines of attacking and interacting with Retribution. Will report back with how it fares.

These are your best creatures: Evolution Sage, Hexdrinker, Huatli's Raptor, Managorger Hydra, Mistcutter Hydra, Tuskguard Captain. I suggest you increase most of those creatures to a full set (4x each) and cut the rest.
You currently have 69 cards included. That number should be reduced to 60. I suggest cutting all the Instants, Sorceries, and Enchantments except Pledge of Unity. If after all the cutting there is room left over, I've outlined a number of spells that will add dynamism and range both with the creatures above and with other spells below.
I believe good lands are more important than Planeswalkers. Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood are perhaps valuable enough to consider. Sunpetal Grove , Canopy Vista , Temple of Plenty , Fortified Village , Temple Garden , Windswept Heath are all worth considering, depending on your budget. Swapping out your slow lands for those listed above will improve both speed and reliability.
My thoughts on +1/+1 counters decks: Hardened Scales is overkill, over-rated, and slow. It's a very powerful card that doesn't necessarily speed decks to a win. The best +1/+1 counter decks include only low CMC creatures that can repeatedly provide their own counters. Creatures, especially any that get really big, will get removed pretty consistently. So getting lots of creatures down and swinging quickly and consistently is essential. This is all, of course, just my 2 cents.
I'll point out that there are enough creatures and spells that it's very possible to build solid mono-white or mono-green +1/+1 creature decks. I actually think it's easier to build a solid deck staying mono-colored - it's possible to go mono-color tribal with Humans, Soldiers, Elves, Allies, Oozes etc. The advantage to going tribal is more than just synergy - it's also a handy framework to round out a deck with advantages while also keeping the deck focused. Going tribal also opens the door to Cavern of Souls and Unclaimed Territory . I'd go so far as to say there are so many really solid +1/+1 counter spells, one of the hardest things about building a deck is narrowing it down to a well-honed point. I'm not saying I think you need to go mono-colored and/or tribal here, just pointing out ways to help focus the deck.

Yes, they do! Llanowar Reborn wouldn't work otherwise. The counters just don't do anything while they're not on a creature, but they still exist, and can still be proliferated.

Cytoplast Root-Kin would be a great creature for your deck: it has 4 counters on itself, it gives another counter for each critter you control, and whenever another critter enters the battlefield, you can move a counter on to it, and then you can move counters back on to the root-kin. This triggers Ascendency many times for little cost.
Thinking about it, in fact, all old Simic Graft cards would be crazy with the Ascendency: for example: Simic Initiate enters with 1 counter, and you can move that counter to another creature, triggering the Ascendency twice.

Buddy of mine played Ghave all the time and it was always a threat, so good commander choice! +1
Your explanation for a lot of pieces is very deep and thorough so I get it if some of these suggestions I give you don’t make your version of the deck.
I’d think Forgotten Ancient is an auto-include. People play spells, he gets big with counters and then you even have the option of moving them onto Ghave or another creature on the board. A good counter-engine if you will.
Opal Palace is a dope budget land and a rather great pump spell late game while at the same time providing mana of your commander’s colors if you’re having trouble in certain scenarios. There’s also Llanowar Reborn and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood for other land choices.
Rishkar, Peema Renegade is another version of your planeswalker you already have. Not sure if you’d want another?
And last but not least, you can always run more Dictate of Erebos with something like Grave Pact but I dont know if you are on a budget or not. I personally like running both enchantments in any of my sacrifice decks, but maybe not everyone does!
Hope some of that helps! And again, awesome list!
