Awesome deck, as usual! :D
If you are able to find an affordable copy, Kalonian Hydra might be an effective game-ender here! It looks like it's still around $15 though, even after all those reprints :-\
I'm not sure if it fits as well in terms of flavor but Biomass Mutation would also be an interesting finisher since many of your hydras' actual base stats are really low.
But really, your deck looks amazing as-is and balances thematic flavor with powerful utility perfectly :)

I'm not sure if you got the precon or not, but a few of the cards from it are real gems for this deck!
Adrix and Nev, Twincasters can duplicate the number of tokens you get just like any of the other doubling season effects. Any of these effects copy the effect that makes the token, so the token would still enter with whatever number of counters the origin of the effect would make.
Curiosity Crafter is a token-specific Reconnaissance Mission / Coastal Piracy - style effect. If you're able to consistently make large enough tokens, Garruk's Uprising and Elemental Bond are also excellent options.
Ruxa, Patient Professor is amazing with Fractals! Ignore the first paragraph...the second and third line are gold. And that third line helps us get that sweet value from the Curiosity Crafter-style draw spells.
Don't be afraid of instant-speed draw like Eureka Moment and Growth Spiral . They may look unimpressive, but they perform way better than they look. Return of the Wildspeaker would also likely be awesome in your deck, with a bunch of very large non-humans. Perplexing Test has also performed very well in my token deck.
I'm going to call out Full Flowering and any other token copiers as cards that might not perform very well, since those don't replicate the +1/+1 counters on your 0/0 tokens. Biomass Mutation is an absolute house in here, especially with any form of evasion, like Ruxa, trample from Garruk's Uprising, or the flying from Combine Chrysalis .

"202.3d The converted mana cost of a split card not on the stack or of a fused split spell on the stack is determined from the combined mana costs of its halves. Otherwise, while a split card is on the stack, the converted mana cost of the spell is determined by the mana cost of the half that was chosen to be cast."

If your going to play Eerie Ultimatum play more self mill, this will also have better synergy with the commander
You don't draw enough cards either - Bonders' Enclave - Tatyova, Benthic Druid - any of the modern horizons cycling lands - Splendid Reclamation (sortof) - Mystic Remora - Rhystic Study - Omen of the Sea - Brainstorm - Nissa, Vital Force - Elemental Bond

I'd give more consideration to Scale Up and Become Immense as big p/t increases are the driving force in infect. Also Blight Mamba is fun sb texch. Proliferate and counters are a solid idea, but with green leaning into things like Increasing Savagery rather than the white counters on all creatures, I'd be trying to Proliferate Servant of the Scale or abuse Wildcall for surprise Glistener.
I've had some success with Biomass Mutation, but once more it's still pretty inefficient.
Good luck with the brew, budget infect is more scary for people facing it down in fnm cause its just as explosive but less predictable than regular infect.

If your looking for cuts then here's my 8 recommendations:
Capricopian Flavor win but it often won't hit the opponent you want to hit.
Deepglow Skate One shot effect you don't need.
Gargos, Vicious Watcher Great card. However, you running 9 other hydras (excluding your commander who doesn't really benefit). Also, you don't have many self-targeting effects. Not enough support to keep.
Manascape Refractor If you have more land tutors to copy nykthos or coffers maybe keep but otherwise cut. It also comes in tapped which hurts.
Vorel of the Hull Clade If you have infinite mana or just a ton of mana then his affect is nice but not needed.
Biomass Mutation If you get infinite mana then this is great. Yet, if you have infinite mana you should also be able to win with something else or just start making infinitely large Hydras.
Winding Constrictor Incrementally helps. This seems like a harder cut but your hydra's should be big enough on their own without the 1 extra counter.
Hope that helps. I get it with the tutors. I personally don't like running a bunch of tutors in EDH and even more so dislike the idea of spending a ton of cash on them. But, they do make things more consistent and faster (which I thought was more of a goal due to description) so I recommended them.
Cutting sucks, especially when your down to the last few cards. I don't know your play style or play group so take the cuts recs with a grain of salt.
Best of luck. I like the how the deck looks so far and it should be fun to play no matter what ends up being cut.

Hey, I'm currently playing Kalamax, the Stormsire using a secondary token strategy.
You could play a main token strategy with Kalamax and The Locust God. Kalamax can act as a pseudo Parallel Lives affect with instant spells that create token since if he's tapped the first instant you cast each turn is copied. Many cards can repeatably for no mana cost create a token when you cast an instant or sorcery and you want to be casting instants with Kalamax. Instant draw spells are good with Kalamax. The doubling of draw is good with The Locust God who creates an Insect token when you draw a card. In my opinion getting token value on top of the value you already get from instants with Kalamax could make this a viable main strategy.
Some cards for a creature token strategy with Kalamax:
- The Locust God
- Young Pyromancer
- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer
- Murmuring Mystic
- Metallurgic Summonings
- Chord of Calling
- Parallel Lives
- Cryptolith Rite
- Beastmaster Ascension
- Bident of Thassa
- Hunter's Insight
- Return of the Wildspeaker
- Pull from Tomorrow
- Sprout Swarm
- Artifact Mutation
- Curious Herd
- Scatter the Seeds
- Fated Intervention
- Hunting Pack
- Second Harvest
- Cackling Counterpart
- Supplant Form
- Empty the Warrens
- Rite of Replication
- Mythos of Illuna

I'm definitely trying to find a direction for this. I took out Biomass Mutation mainly because it only affects power and toughness and doesn't help in any other way. I know there are those out there running End-Raze Forerunners to provide an explosive attack turn w/ Finale of Devastation, leaving blockers after, but I already have a ton of green mana symbols among cards I'm running. I'm concerned there is too much reliance on green and I don't want to be stuck.
Is Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner a must-run?
