Artifact Creature — Construct
As Adaptive Automaton enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.
Adaptive Automaton is the chosen type in addition to its other types.
Other creatures you control of the chosen type get +1/+1.
Adaptive Automaton Discussion

I feel like this needs to lean harder into the +1/+1 counters theme, or lean into 'bear value' rather than 'bear aggro'.
Vivien's Grizzly points to a value gameplan, but it calling for creatures/plainswalkers is a little limiting.
G/(u) offers another option- Treasure Hunt . If your deck is treasure hunt, ayla, influence, reliquary tower, then islands/forests, you can spit out a lot of bears.
Jamming black and just running a ton of hand disruption/carddraw is a strong option. Duress looks less awful when you can fight any creature they play.
Flaxen Intruder might be worth it in the sideboard.
Good luck with the brew. Ayla feels strong enough to carry the entire tribe on her own.

In my humble opinion, Immortal Servitude is better than Return to the Ranks . They each have their pros and cons, but to me, the Convoke mechanic just doesn't make sense with what the spell does. Typically, you're only going to have multiple targets after a wrath or some-such, so the likelihood of having creatures out to help with Convoke seems slim. In comparison, for 4 you can bring back all 1-drops with Immortal Servitude. That said, I notice you're running quite a few spells over 2CMC, namely Ranger of Eos, Restoration Angel, and Silverblade Paladin. If you swapped those for other spells costing 1 or 2, Immortal Servitude would be even better. As far as I know, there's not a absolute on which is better, so I suppose it's relative to play-style and what not, but still something to consider.

If you're looking to make this decent in Modern you'll have to bring the cmc down a little bit. unfortunately, Raksha Golden Cub is too slow for modern, seeing as you won't be able to get its effect before turn 8 at the earliest. Here are my recommendations -
Raksha Golden Cub - too expensive
Spirit of the Hearth - could be a sideboard card, still probably too expensive
Bond of Discipline - other cheaper options
Godsend - not useful without raksha
Ancestral Blade - not useful without raksha
Pride Guardian - Defender really goes against your plan here, and I feel like the only reason it's in the deck is because of the life gain
Cards to add:
Leonin Vanguard - gains life every turn for your pridemate, good if you have multiple creatures
Path to Exile - a modern removal staple
Brimaz is already in your maybe board, he's a monster
Sacred Cat - this coooould be an option, but it's pretty weak.
Leonin Arbiter - pairs nicely with path, slows many decks down.
Metallic Mimic - does this count or is this cheating?
Adaptive Automaton - same as above

a general rule of thumb i follow for lands is that if everything costs 3 or less, 20 lands is fine. if i'm using cmc 4 cards, i run 24 lands. if i'm using anything that costs 5 or more, i use 24 lands plus ramp.
i don't see any real removal in the deck, and thats going to be crucial if you want to live long enough to cast spells with cmc 5 or higher. Path to Exile is pretty much your best option in GW.
too few of your creatures actually have the "elephant" creature type to actually call this an elephant deck.
when building a tribal deck, you need cares that actually care about creature type. otherwise you could be running the same strategy more effectively using other creatures. usually these cards come in the form of "lords" like Elvish Champion or Goblin Chieftain , but it could also be something like Commune with Dinosaurs . your deck doesn't really have anything like this, so i'd recommend Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton .
