TypicalTimmy, Playing xenagos quickly is integral to this deck working. A single Counterspell sets us back 2 turns and allows people to set up their Rhystic Study, Fact or Fiction, and other big draw spells, digging for more answers and keeping us from resolving our game plan. You’ll find Cavern of Souls in hypercompetitive The Gitrog Monster decks for this same reason.
Profet93 I think you’re going about solving your meta in a less efficient way. If removal is your issue, I would double down on protecting your 1 big threat, not trying to throw more 5-10 mana threats at 1-2 mana spot removal, this is a battle they are going to win. Try things like Blossoming Defense, Vines of Vastwood, etc. if counterspells are your issues, then Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Prowling Serpopard, Domri, Anarch of Bolas are your friends.
With respect to your creature suggestions: yes you can run Kozilek, and other Hydra Friends, but to win consistently, you want T3 Xenagos, and T4 Beater. Past T6, this deck gets a lot worse and if you are stuck with a Kozilek as your only threat in hand for T4-7, you lost your battle. Hydras are the similar, they are CRAZY good when you sink 12+ mana into them, but eh when you have 3 lands and a Sol Ring. We need things that swing the fences for 6 mana every time, like Godo, Malignus, and the Infect creatures. Also Godo+Embercleave takes and extra combat with Godo’s ability. It’s the best beater with Xenagos.
I ran a Tooth and Nail package in my Xenagos for a while but dropped it because of the 9 cmc to play it. If Xenagos was out, I went for Archetype of Endurance and Blightsteel Colossus for a auto kill. Without xenagos it was blightsteel and Urabrask. But that leaves us with 3 cards that are too expensive and one that is good but not great for the deck. Not saying you can’t do it, but I chose against it.

- Anointed Procession over the Doubling Season , mainly because it's two less mana, it doesn't give you the plus counters, but it does help you get those tokens faster.
- Prowling Serpopard - I just like it, un-counter-able creature that makes creatures un-counter-able. It's great, don't @ me.
Sandwurm Convergence - Late game Enchantment, blocks flyers and every turn gives you a 6/6 token? Seems to fit the theme I'd say.
- Divine Visitation - All tokens are 4/4/ angels that fly.
- Emmara, Soul of the Accord Cheap, whenever it's tapped gives you a cute token .

I've been really interested in building a hydra deck, as well!
I'd look at removing your walkers, tbh. Your main theme is tribal with +1/+1 counters, and of the walkers you've included, only one actively works with this theme. Outside of your M20 Vivien, your Garruk choice is nice considering your overall power will, ideally, be high. But otherwise, those are 6 cards that you could replace with options that will tighten up your theme and round out your mana curve. You pull one of those opening hand, you're chillin with them for a hot minute.
Castle Garenbrig is maybe not worth your time here. It's 4 mana for 6, and there are definitely better options to sink mana into if that's what you want to do. Yeah, you can get a 6 CMC beast out... if you've got a great hand and have a sol ring, this, and two green-producing sources out by turn 3. Mosswort Bridge could really do that more efficiently and at less cost to you (esp if someone counters you), while also helping to prevent an early-game hand-clog in the form of a high CMC card.
You're low on counterspells, which is supes awkward for a blue deck. You've got some options at least. I'd look at including Prowling Serpopard to help protect your high-mana creatures from an immediate counterspell. Negate is a simple and beautiful counterspell, and Swan Song is incredible. Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic are simic creature counterspells that still let you build your board (and provide +1/+1 counter target options if you need them). Just be careful with Mystic Snake as part of it's ETB is that a spell must be countered. Frilled Mystic gives you the option when you cast it.
I hope this helps some! I'm super curious how this turns out!!

Some notable standouts from Theros that I will be testing:
Overall, these are some exciting cards that should spice up the deck quite a bit.

Falrek How sad.
Mayyyyyybe you could put at least two Prowling Serpopard . It's very situational, but yet a good body and nice effect for only three mana. Let me know what you think about it.

I like it! If you're looking for suggestions I would possibly recommend:
Another option if you want recurring landfall would be comboing Ramunap Excavator and any land that requires you to sac the land like Warped Landscape , Myriad Landscape , Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , etc.
Bonds of Mortality to bypass indestructible + hexproof.
Rampaging Baloths used in tandem with your ramp to abuse landfall triggers.
Sight of the Scalelords to make your big creatures bigger and scarier.
Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar to make use of all those forests you have lying around.
Prowling Serpopard adds some utility that prevents your creature spells from being countered.
Deck is looking real good though! +1 for Helix Pinnacle, that card looks W I L D.

I'm not great with this but I'd put Prowling Serpopard on your sideboard :)

I run a similar deck, personally I'd run some copies of Dryad Militant and Once Upon a Time instead of nylea and Rhonas. I'd consider maybe two or three Heroic Intervention and Prowling Serpopard in the sideboard too.
