You need more ways to dig for the combo.
The New Finale of Devastation is 2GG to find one half of the combo. Also combos well with T2 Druid into T3 Vizier off of Finale. It's also a wincon, because you pump your team for a billion and grab a small creature with trample, any one will do (just pick one).
Chord of Calling Also works.

I appreciate the input. I don’t know about Incubation Druid because I like Utopia Sprawl a little more for more mana and faster hydras. I actually replaced my 4 Negate with Divination because it helps draw Simic Ascendancy faster and get the hydras, and I can’t think of really any other cards that could fit in that spot well. I like your idea for New Horizons and Mistcutter Hydra so I added them both.

Ok, so I had just reviewed your deck once again and I have to say I am loving how well it works and it seems faster with some great synergy using the planeswalker you put in because whenever I got Garruk in and a hydra, like Heroes' Bane , I found such improvement in effectively placing more counters on Simic Ascendancy . I love it, of course, there are more things you can do and maybe this may help, I suggest take Incubation Druid , New Horizons , remove Utopia Sprawl and Fertile Ground and you will have greater chances of improving the decks speed with placing a ton of counters on your guys when they get in. Also, put in one Mistcutter Hydra in case you meet any blue decks with counterspells in them and it has haste so that makes it super good. Tell me how it works.

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.
