black & green counters is a popular deck in standard atm, because Winding Constrictor is super strong. red / green energy was a thing for quite a bit (Electrostatic Pummeler, Voltaic Brawler, Bristling Hydra, Uncaged Fury, Blossoming Defense ect...) it was an extremely explosive deck...though not very consistent. Additionally the meta has shifted and there's lots more combo/control now. I think if you are gonna try to make a +1/+1 counter deck it should have at least a splash of black, if for nothing else, Winding Constrictor and a few Fatal Push.

This is a long shot, but you may want to consider splashing black for Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and Winding Constrictor

Cool deck. Winding Constrictor fits perfectly.

I suggest Servant of the Scale, Vastwood Hydra and Sporeback Troll. You might also consider Winding Constrictor. I made GW focused on +1/+1 counters, I use these cards there. As LithiumHD said, Hardened Scales is a must, have 2 of them at least.

Retool this into a Rainbow deck, add Winding Constrictor and Longtusk Cub.

The Constrictor will give you another energy for every energy trigger you pull off, which adds up quickly.

The Cub, and your Basker both benefit from this as well, since +1/+1 counters are added individually to both of these cards, every time you spend energy to 'buy' a +1/+1, you get another, so you're getting +2/+2 for every energy expense.

Drcaptain - Kujar Seedsculptor is less versatile than Weaponcraft Enthusiast, and that is probably not a card I ever want to play on turn 2. Usually it will be a 2/3 that does nothing, or I might be able to make a Loam Dryad a 2/3 instead, which still doesn't seem good. If I'm playing it later than turn 2, I would always prefer to have Weaponcraft Enthusiast instead, as it always does more. The only advantage it has is that it can place its counter on something else, so there's a chance I could make a Winding Constrictor a 4/5, but almost every other counter-placing card in the deck already does that, too. I appreciate the comment, but I think I'm going to have to pass on that card.

A few more phenomenal cards are Winding Constrictor,Hardened Scales,Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Angel of Invention. Path to Exile is another great removal card!
