Novijen, Heart of Progress Discussion

Primal Surge perhaps? Also regardless if you care or not about a graveyard theme, I think these cards are good on their own but even better with Muldrotha:Whiptongue Hydra, Constant Mists,Mishra's Bauble, and Executioner's Capsule.
I like that you chose a different take on Muldrotha, in fact a +1/+1 counters deck was my first edh deck 3 years ago starting with Vorel of the Hull Clade, but then came along Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it should go without saying that I obviously changed up the deck.

Why do I only ever get comments when I don't check my account for a few weeks? Anyways, thanks for your feedback.
Getting counters on stuff is usually not that much of a problem. Most creatures either enter with counters, produce counters in some way or don't care about counters at all. Early on I usually spend my mana to cast creatures or ramp, Novijen, Heart of Progress and the likes are more useful later in the game. Sylvan Scrying would likely end up searching Reliquary Tower 90% of the time just like Expedition Map.
Depending on sequencing, the evolve creatures usually trigger on the next 2-3 casts. There is also a lot of abilities that multiply counters on all creatures, so they passively grow with the rest of the team if you play them early. And Prime Speaker Zegana will always evolve them. Crocanura is mainly in here because the deck doesn't have that many answers to flyers. If you have a more effective way to deal with flyers let me know. Same somewhat applies to Cloudfin Raptor, though its also quite potent on the offensive. Being a 1-drop you can almost always play it before your other stuff and grow it along with them. Battering Krasis I might end up cutting. Trample is a decent keyword and it can grow quite bit occasonally, but its severly outclassed by other 3 drops like Managorger Hydra. Main reason it's still in here is that there was other stuff I wanted to cut.

I really like the idea of this deck and the level of detail you've put in explaining it! I'm glad for your realism in explaining your infinite combo.
The thing that worries me in this kind of deck is getting the +1/+1 counters on my creatures to begin with. Is that something you have a problem with? I know the evolve and graft keywords can be nice for that, and Novijen, Heart of Progress, Zameck Guildmage, and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood are powerful resources for that, so I wonder if maybe some more cards that can tutor any land, like Sylvan Scrying could be handy.
Additionally, how much work do Crocanura, Battering Krasis, and Cloudfin Raptor put in once they're beefed up? I tend to be a little afraid of Evolve creatures that don't do anything special with their counters like Gyre Sage or Fathom Mage, but I love their flavor and I'd be so glad to play them if they can contribute to one's board presence and maybe make a couple of meaningful attacks.
Again, I love this deck's flavor and function. Thanks for sharing and keeping it updated!

Hi! Like the coding and love the art in the background, but it does make the comments hard see :)
That said, here are some suggestions!
Triumph of the Hordes Will give you a sneaky one shot kill.
Lifecrafter's Bestiary value card draw
Your mana base could use some work. Cut the groves, guildgate, woodland stream, and a few basics.
Then throw in a Simic Signet and you'll be set!
Hope some of this helps! Good luck!

If you want to play with counters, you can give Novijen, Heart of Progress a try, it's cheap, hard to remove, and can still give you mana if you need it. Since it puts +1/+1 counters, it can also make Herald of Secret Streams a bit more useful.
Natural State shouldn't be in your mainboard, it's too situational. Not all decks run artifacts or enchantments so it won't always get use. Just add it to your sideboard and if your friends who play like using artifacts or enchantments, keep it in the deck, but it should be a sideboard card.
