Great start! You have pretty much all the good kicker cards. I think you could focus a bit more on the secondary theme of Hallar, which is +1/+1 counters. Hallar doesn't care where the counters come from, which means you don't actually need that many Kicker cards to make him deal tons of damage.
Hunger of the Howlpack is a great addition to the deck, being one of the most efficient counter-givers in Pauper.
Ivy Lane Denizen is a must have in this deck. You make plenty of tokens, which can either make Hallar massive or simply make your 1/1s into 2/2s, which is an incredible boost.
Longshot Squad gives most of your team reach. Aquastrand Spider also does it for a cost, but can also distribute counters. Spike Colony is a pretty beefy creature that can also give its counters to others. This can make combat very difficult for the opponent on top of all the synergy it gives naturally.
Horned Kavu is extremely useful in this deck, since it can re-buy so many of your ETB triggers for lots of value.
It's so hard to get card advantage in these colours. I would definitely play Entourage of Trest to try to keep up with Blue and Black decks. I also don't leave home without Rolling Thunder and Elven Cache in these colours as cards to catch you up in card advantage. You could also be running up to six cycling lands, namely Tranquil Thicket and Forgotten Cave. In terms of synergy, you could also go for Tishana's Wayfinder and Brazen Buccaneers.

Please remember to link your cards with double brackets:
[[Gargos, Vicious Watcher]]
A spell is any card that is on the stack. Gargos cares about spells that specifically target it. So, that’s targeted instants ( Lightning Bolt ), targeted sorceries ( Grapeshot ), and Aura spells, which always target when they are a spell.
For your specific examples:
Equipment spells do not target. They resolve, then have an equip ability that allows it to attach to a creature. At that point, it is no longer a spell, so does not implicate Gargos.
Constellation does not necessarily target, it’s an ability word serving as a reminder that some effect will occur regarding enchantments entering the battlefield. Even if the ability targets, it will always be the ability, not a spell.
Bestow - bestow means you are casting the card as an aura spell. As such, a card cast for its bestow cost would be a targeted spell, and would implicate Gargos.

I'd look at skewing things towards more creatures- mainboarding servants, cutting the number of Increasing Savagery / Bioshift / Forced Adaptationfor cards like
Deeproot Champion Merfolk Branchwalker Feral Hydra Grim Initiate Mistcutter Hydra Pollenbright Druid Quirion Dryad Runaway Steam-Kin Scrounging Bandar Stromkirk Noble Simic Initiate Vastwood Hydra Young Wolf
Keeping your creature count high massively increases the reliability of lists like this without breakning the bank. I'd also look at Temple of Abandon , Magma Jet , Cream of the Crop and Thunderous Wrath - the red and green miracles are really good with a little support, especially maindeck noxious.

Exile an instant or sorcery spell you control: ~ deals 2 damage to any target. Only use this ability if ~ is on the stack.
Draw two cards.
