Kicker (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)
Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control. If this spell was kicked, put two +1/+1 counters on each creature you control instead.
Wild Onslaught Discussion

First and foremost, thank you MonkeySit for your kind and helpful comment!
I've taken your suggestion to heart and already meddled around a bit. I removed the 4x Ironshell Beetle in trade for another 2x Pledge of Unity and 2x Evolution Sage and it already seems to work a lot better!
I do not really like Wild Onslaught because i already have a lot of non-creature spells, but I might try substituting the 2x Bloom Hulk for 2x Shalai, Voice of Plenty because i really like the hexproof it gives to creatures like Mowu, Loyal Companion with 12~ +1/+1-counters!
As for the thing about Arlinn, Voice of the Pack and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves , I think i prefer leaving them 2x and enjoying their rarer appearence, because i think Ajani, the Greathearted is too good to pass up on. (Same with Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter )
Still, thank you for your kind suggestions, I will of course update this once I tested more cards!

Welcome to the game!
I'd probably start by adding in 2 more copies of Evolution Sage . I've fiddled with these on MTGA and combined them with Nissa, Who Shakes the World and gotten my Nissa sitting on 25 loyalty counters and creatures buffed to roughly the same power and toughness.
You're going to want more reliable ways to put +1/+1 counters on your creatures to make the proliferate worthwhile. So I'd actually take out Ironshell Beetle , I'd personally have 4 copies of Pledge of unity, and a couple other choices are cards like Shalai, Voice of Plenty or Wild Onslaught .
The most important thing is that you need to decide on what you want your deck to do - You said you love Arlinn, Voice of the Pack and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves but you only have two copies of each. If you want to focus them a bit more you will want 1-2 more copies of each I would guess. You could probably take out Ajani, the Greathearted in that case because you're going to get the same amount of life gain. You could probably do without so many copies of Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter too.
these are only a few suggestions but ultimately in the end, as long as you make sure you have fun with your deck, then you're playing magic the right way! have fun and goodluck!

I was browsing the Dominaria card list and came across two cards that could work well for you:
Arbor Armament works like the Stony Strength but gives reach for a turn. Other than the Pteramander s you have little air support, and it could take awhile before you can adapt them to make them big enough to kill something. Arbor Armaments might be better in your sideboard depending on your local meta.
The better card I saw in Dominaria is Wild Onslaught . It can give lots of counters and it is an instant. Cast it end of opponents turn, kicked if possible, using Wilderness Reclamation and mana dorks. It's another sneaky (and on-color this time) way to get your Simic Ascendancy to go off without your opponent being able to respond.

Pointing fingers and discussing semantics, whoever does it, is the opposite of being constructive. Let me try to clear the air and get back to constructive feedback:
Overall, this is a useful tool at any level of competitiveness, however, this is more of a mantra, than a rule. If you look at a card to add or remove, it is very useful to think "How does this card aid my main avenue for victory?" - at any level of competitiveness.
However, this cannot be your sole approach to deckbuilding. It is part of a bigger whole. You still have to consider not only how the card fits the strategy, but the mana color and mana cost (Grave Titan is a good zombie-generating card, but does it fit a typical zombie deck that has cards with 3 CMC or less), type of card (a GB saproling deck in standard may not want a powerful card like Wild Onslaught, since it dilutes the creature count), opportunity cost (by including this card, what am I giving up on?), etc.
TLDR; This is the basis of a great article called "How to decide whether to add a card to your deck", but needs to have more information. The factors currently considered are not enough.

Wild Onslaught just seems to be very expensive (in terms of cmc) to cast kicked. dropping these makes some room for Ghalta and Itlimoc
Another card that I like for this kind of deck, but don't see how you can fit it in, is Vine Mare

Your deck is like 96% standard legal, might as well go all the way. Otherwise, I like it - kicker is a great mechanic. 26 lands with 9 creatures that grant you mana are way too much. Go down 2 of each basic and add 4 Untamed Kavu.
Additionally kicker has two variants - wide or tall. Kavu goes well with either, but for example, Gruun is good in a "tall" deck (few strong creatures), while Saproling Migration is good in a "wide" deck (numerous small creatures you buff).
I would advise to choose one avenue or the other as going down both dilutes the focus of your deck. If you go wide, Wild Onslaught is a must-have. If you go tall, get some cards that large and in charge like Territorial Allosaurus.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of the designs. Here are some notes:
Having the peanuts design buff elephants, but not designing any elephants to go with it is a mistake of lack of cohesiveness. Otherwise, a fine card.
Fire eating does not represent flavorfully what fire eating is IRL - people are not making living bombs out of themselves. Should probably be rakdos colored.
Three rings is confusing on first and second read and gets super confusing if one or more of the three permanents goes away.
Magician is the best design, but certainly not an uncommon with that text box.
Circus Tent is a bit weird, but it works. Probably should be rare rarity to fit within the challenge and its design, but otherwise ok.
Feats of strength is a bit confusing, probably not rare as noted and a bit of a letdown at that mana cost and rarity. It is a Crash the Ramparts, a 23rd card in IXL limited, with minor upside, so unless your deck features Wild Onslaught as well, I think it is a pretty bad card, power-level wise.
Knife thrower does feel quite Rakdos too, undeservant of its mythic rarity, being an Icatian Javelineers with a better body. Also, after reading the design excerpt, being a literal filler in the holes of the design challenge is not a good place to be.
Ringmaster is quite alright - a decent commander, average to good draft pick that could be superb in the right deck, with limited constructed applications... wait. His effect is permanent? Well, that is a design oversight for sure.
Overall, if I was an average judge, I will have to say that half of your designs are not particularly good, while all of them suffer from being undercooked.
