Kalonian Hydra is great for doubling up counters.
I also played a similar G/U Evolve/Counter deck. I eventually splashed black for Corpsejack Menace. Now whenever any ability triggers to add counters, that ammount is now doubled! Crazy.
I would also suggest either some spell counter or some creature protection. A 100/100 creature doesn't do much to a Doom Blade.

I do agree that Doom Blade is a bit annoying. I have also found that deathtouch is a bit tricky to get around. I am fully open to suggestions to figure out ways to fix these problems.
Xadroy haha thanks, I saw that combo but it is just too overused. I thought this idea might be a little more friendly to play with friends.

Simic Charm are Vines of Vastwood just two ways to give your creatures hexproof. I tend to lean towards Simic Charm as it has some extra uses. You can also go counter spells such as Negate. You at least have some Bioshifts in there to transfer counters in the event of a creature getting killed.
I'm not great on ideas of how to protect them, but more that it's something a fatty deck needs. Otherwise those cheap removal as can ruin all that work.

Dead_eye5 I'll keep Simic Charm in my sideboard for now just because the people I play with don't tend to have as much kill spells. I am thinking about adding another Bioshift because of its defensive capabilities though.

I feel the amount of lands you have is too little- 20 is pretty small even for a red aggro deck, and your deck is pretty top heavy. Lots of stuff is 2-3-4 mana, with Kalonian Hydra topping out the curve at 5. I know Gyre Sage provides you mana, but honestly, I personally think you should up the land count.

Predator's Rapport is really good in this type of deck to gain a ton of life for just 3 mana at instant speed

TheNight77 That could help against more aggressive decks, thanks. My biggest problem right now is getting consistent counters on my creatures. I've realized I'm having to wait longer than I want to get the deck going. Any advice on what to add to fix this?

Also Gothomas one thing I like to do in a similar deck that I run is use Kiora's Follower. Worst case this card can untap a land to generate another mana, but in other cases it can untap you gyre sage so you can double the man that gyre sage makes a turn. If you ever get Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, it can be used to untap that as well.
