If I may, I would suggest putting in Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic to keep your curve down and help with the ramp as you try to fish for more lands early on. Borderland Ranger is another good budget option that can get you more lands early. Journey of Discovery is a fantastic sorcery for land ramp. Depending on your group's meta, Runic Armasaur might be another cheap option for card draw. I see you have some hydras lined up as possibilities, Mistcutter Hydra is a fantastic card against control decks that run blue and Savageborn Hydra will be absolutely titanic if it hits the field! Polukranos, World Eater is another fun hydra that fights opponents creatures when you make it monstrous.

I don't think you should discount having other enchantments either since Nikya tries to discourage that. Zendikar Resurgent has dipped in price and having good card draw on top of ramp can be a win-win.

It would be good for you to have some redundancy for making your creatures uncounterable. Prowling Serpopard and Spellbreaker Behemoth are both good options and Vexing Shusher if you want to spend extra. Adding something to give creatures haste from the get go is also nice to have outside of your Rhythm of the Wild. Anger is just a solid option at about 50 cents and Urabrask the Hidden does that and then some, too.

These are just some of my thoughts as a fellow G/R player. I honestly love Nikya and seeing someone putting a deck together is exciting! Hope some of the suggestions get you on the track you want, whether you take them or not.

And clarification on X: X=0 in all zones except the stack itself.

If you copy a spell with X in its cost while it's on the stack, X will be whatever value was set for it at casting (so a Heat Ray with X=5, as mentioned, will have X=5 on the stack).

In all other zones, though, that X is 0, so if you're copying the card from someone's graveyard or hand, it's 0. From exile, it's 0 (so don't put it on an Isochron Scepter ). Mistcutter Hydra on the battlefield has a CMC of 1 because X=0, no matter how many counters are currently on it.

Very fun, but where's the damage? You can go infinite and cast your deck, but you can't win on that turn. Next turn you'll win unless you get board wiped and be miserable. Even a Mistcutter Hydra could do that. You need only one hasty card or something to win.

Mistcutter Hydra , Craterhoof Behemoth if you have a decent amount of creatures, eldrazi titans like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , etc. Omnath, Locus of Mana will hold the mana as you swing, Eldrazi Conscription for a massive pump, Primordial Hydra , Stonehoof Chieftain , Tooth and Nail to tutor with.

I would recommend Mistcutter Hydra instead ofNimbus Swimmer

I would recommend fewer copies of Mistcutter Hydra and possibly more copies of Protean Hydra as the protection from blue that Mistcutter has is kind of a nonbo with Refocus, Vorel and Hadana's Climb  Flip

Arbor Colossus and Mistcutter Hydra are easy cuts and would be upgraded by any of the creatures from previous comment.

Mistcutter Hydra. If counterspells are a big deal there are a few other "can't be countered" creatures of size but they don't have haste. Yeah, I know your bear-based mana rebate doesn't work on it but this is an incredible big creature.

Nemesis Mask is amazing with big guys even if you do have trample. Dragon Throne of Tarkir as well.

Myr Superion for zero mana is hilarious btw. I had forgotten that card.
