At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control five or more lands, put four +1/+1 counters on Scute Mob.
Scute Mob Discussion

Have you considered swapping your commander for Prime Speaker Zegana ? She is much stronger than the new one.
I would also consider some proliferate cards, such as Thrummingbird , Contagion Clasp , or Tezzeret's Gambit . To make room for these, I would take out Lorescale Coatl , Scute Mob , and Vinelasher Kudzu , since these are just big creatures that aren't doing you much good other than being big.
Lastly, I'd swap your artifact ramp for more land ramp, since land is always more resilient. In my opinion, Rampant Growth , Farseek , Kodama's Reach , and Circuitous Route will all serve you better than the signet, cluestone, and locket.

Not a bad list, Galloping Lizrog , Scute Mob , and Walking Ballista are the first cards I would look to consider. Lizrog effectively doubles the amount of 1/1 counters you use for Simic Ascendancy Mob is just a shit ton of counters a turn. And Ballista could be a win con.

I hear you with the budget thing, NothingClever. If you can spare the change now, Diabolic Intent is cheeeeap now compared to what it was and will be, and in Ghave (with the cheap 1/1s) it's pretty much might as well be a Demonic Tutor . Worth the buy at this point in time.
Altars are expensive too, but what diabolic intent is to demonic tutor in Ghave, a Utopia Mycon is to a Phyrexian Altar . It's a couple bucks, yes, but far cheaper than a phyrexian altar, but once you played with it a few times you'll be very very happy you got it. Turning saproling into mana is just what you need. Gyre Sage is also a must include for Ghave - especially if it's out with a Ivy Lane Denizen , a Juniper Order Ranger , Cathars' Crusade , or any other passive counter adder. I like to have it out with some extra mana, pass the turn, then right before my next turn, create a bunch of saprolings to trigger counters onto it for a big next turn (maybe with 10 Geralf's Messenger triggers.
Both Gyre Sage and Utopia Mycon could more justify Exsanguinate in here as well. Also, they both make Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent that much better as you can take the mana doubling even further, leading into a monster turn.
I personally would remove Scute Mob for Blade of the Bloodchief as the blade can produce more counters with the combos in here for added fuel to Ghave, and it can go on creatures who's abilities use those counters: Hangarback Walker , Champion of Lambholt , Hooded Hydra , Mycoloth , Fertilid , Gyre Sage , etc........ Far more value. It also makes an Elenda, the Dusk Rose go nuts and provides tons of value in a Ghave.
Another very powerful card I've used for Ghave is Glare of Subdual . It has huge interaction potential and controls the board easily with Ghave.

@Zigen: I think Scute Mob is OK, but I don't know what I'd cut for it. No trample kind of has me down on it.
@I_TappedWrong: I took out Hardened Scales because it doesn't automatically hand out +1s. The rest of your recs look awesome. Thanks

Any deck that I see that uses green and counters I will always recommend Scute Mob for obvious reasons

Keep in mind these are just cutting suggestions and I never played with your deck. I could be that some cuts are really good cards in your deck and I don't know it because I did not play with your deck.

No Scute Mob ??? I thought you were better than this.
