Not just a recency bias, but I fell in love with Ashiok, Nightmare Muse as soon as I first saw it. Everything about that art speaks to me.
I also love Outmuscle because bear suplex. I want to turn it into a playmat

Is this a budget deck? If so, ignore most of what I say. If this is competitive, I have some suggestions.
Regulate your cards. You have a lot of 1-2 ofs, and a lot of cards that don't fit with your theme. Take out Aggressive Mammoth , and probably Bloom Hulk since he's a little under-powered (same with Outmuscle ). God-Eternal Rhonas also doesn't fit your theme, and neither do Nissa's Triumph , or Circuitous Route or Gingerbread Cabin or Growth Cycle or Season of Growth .
You need more power. You just need cards that are effective and can win you the game. Consider adding blue or white (or both) so you have more selection; some of the highest-power cards for this archetype are found in G/U or G/W colors. If you're staying in mono-green, add some more Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig s, replace Vivien, Nature's Avenger for Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , drop Evolving Wilds for Fabled Passage , Incubation Druid can replace all the ramp we've been taking out, Voracious Hydra has value coming out the ears, even with all its heads, Pelt Collector is good, and Stonecoil Serpent is just good. Nissa, Who Shakes the World is great too. Those are all ideas; take what you want and leave the rest.
Interaction is needed. Because we're taking out Outmuscle , we've got almost nothing to interact with the board spell-wise. And here's where my advice becomes unhelpful. This archetype in mono-green really just doesn't have any good interaction besides Voracious Hydra . You need to splash white or blue to get some removal or bounce or anything. All green has is fight.
Again, if this is just casual and you don't care about spending $100-200 on a deck to make it competitive, ignore most of what I just said.

This is actually one of the first giant decks I've seen, despite the clear upsides to making them. There are also clear downsides to a giant deck. The first being that you're slow, since giants are by nature big creatures. You need some more ramp, like Arboreal Grazer . You aren't playing simic colors, which is where all the good ramp is, but you should take efforts to be able to get those giants down by T3-4.
Second, Once Upon a Time is not a card that fits into every green deck. If your big win-cons are specific creatures or a specific land, it's a good card to have, but in this one you're just wasting card advantage and a card slot. It's still a good card, but you're only going to have it free one time in half your games at most, and the rest of the time it's an over-costed Commune with Dinosaurs .
And lastly, Sunder Shaman . Great card, powerful 4-drop, but it's not going to work for this deck. Two each of two colors on turn 4 is hard in a dual-color deck, and nearly impossible in tri-color. It's extra-hard because you want cast off on the next turn, which requires 2 of your third color. You'd have to have at least one paradise druid to pull this off, and that's a lot of uncertainty.
To replace these cards, I'd recommend taking a look at Outmuscle (a situationally good fight spell), Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig (a very good addition to this deck, but you won't get him T3 like ever so he's going to be a T4-6 play), Barge In (a cheap way to give your giants trample and boost), and then test/take a look at these: The Great Henge , Domri, Anarch of Bolas , Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner , Bolt Bend , and Return of the Wildspeaker .
