Great deck! Have you thought about
Avenger of Zendikar for lots of large plant tokens, Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi as an 18/18 surprise land creature, Beastmaster Ascension, Cazur, Ruthless Stalker Flip since you're working with combat damage mostly anyway, Champion of Lambholt a hidden gem because when big enough it makes all your creatures unblockable, Curse of Predation a good politics card, Hardened Scales, Helix Pinnacle as an alternate win con, Myojin of Life's Web for divinity counter shenanigans, Quest for Renewal for pseudo-vigilance
Regardless of if you take my suggestions, +1 from me!

+1 my dude! @your reddit post,
More lands imo. Also more big ramp... seems like Vorinclex is a big target for removal, so ramping up to 15+ mana a turn seems like the way to go.
I think the biggest problem is that you're splitting themes and trying to jam infect. A lot of seemingly powerful cards don't have synergy with the rest of the deck. Only ~12 cards directly create +1/+1 counters. So (eg.) Hardened Scales really does nothing.
...Cut incidental Infect:
-1Phyrexian Swarmlord... I love this card but, even when you're all in on infect it isn't that good...
(I think the other infect cards with 5+ power as soft, 2-card combos with your commmander are viable).
...Cut fatties with no evasion:
-1Rampaging Baloths... incidental 4/4s aren't worthwhile
-1Ulvenwald Hydra... no synergy

For what it's worth, I never build a green go-wide deck without Cryptolith Rite and Champion of Lambholt. The former I actually try to fit into any deck I build with green in the identity, and the later is a major wincon.
Also, I just recently built a token deck with Kamahl, Heart of Krosa and Prava of the Steel Legion as partner commanders. Kamahl costs a lot more to get out than what it might help in this deck, but Prava is actually more effective than you might think (Defense boost means more survivors after attacking wide), and it's cat tribal to boot.
And finally, Triumph of the Hordes.
As for cuts, it's hard to say because I'm not the one playing the deck. From an outside perspective, it seems like Goblin Bombardment, Runic Armasaur and the two board wipes (Wrath of God & Blasphemous Act) don't aid your goal. All are incredibly useful cards, but I wouldn't put them in here if this was my deck.
That's all I got. Hope it helps!

As for The Great Henge, The Ozolith, Heroic Intervention, Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Branching Evolution and so many other spicey - yet pricey - cards, please keep the description of the deck in mind. This deck is going to be a budget build to be an entry in a Secret Santa type thing. My playgroups' gentleman's agreement is ~30,00€/$40.00 maximum - plus cards that sit in our binders which we don't mind giving away.
Also, the deck's supposed to be played in a low powered pod, which we would score 3-4/10 by our metrics. The easiest way to do that is have most cards either fit the counters theme or one of the subthemes such as fighting instead of being generically good. Meaning, cards like Inspiring Call and Sporeback Troll fit a lot better than Heroic Intervention, Wrap in Vigor, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots and the likes.
I still have Tuskguard Captain and Bramblewood Paragon in a box somewhere. I might add them as extras. For the moment i think Champion of Lambholt, Gnarlid Colony and Pridemalkin should be plenty to enable hits.
I'm quite sure Longshot Squad is one of those boxes, too. It'll have to be an extra for now, since i won't know if the deck's even facing flyers until all Secret Santas are revealed. Nice catch though!
Hydra's Growth and Increasing Savagery have been on my mind as well, yet they fit Mowu, Loyal Companion so much better than the other interchangable commanders. Going wide and wild with counters is a lot more entertaining than just going big. Same goes for Managorger Hydra. Sure it's straight forward, but something like Forgotten Ancient can enable a variety of things - at half the price.
As for Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, there are only so few creatures that would trigger his second ability reliably at the moment: Bloodspore Thrinax, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Verdurous Gearhulk and Vigor. If i would be looking for creatures that do something similar to his first ability i'd propably consider Ivy Lane Denizen for its flexibility instead.
Anyhow, thanks again for your kind words and suggestions!
ps. MapPsycho thanks for your flattering words as well! :)

This is pretty cool, Hamza is a pretty cool commander. I see you're focusing on artifacts, but there are some great lords for plus counters:
Also, Felidar Retreat is pretty busted.

I'm just going to drop a "maybe" list here for you.
I'm going to think on it, and maybe come back for more. Cheers!

Hey, nice budget version, less than $50 is impressive.
Command Tower is now less than $1 and is one of the best lands in Commander. Selesnya Sanctuary is another upgrade for a dual land. Quest for Renewal good with Emmara letting you create Soldiers or tap your tokens for other effects during each opponent's turn. Good repeatable draw with Mentor of the Meek. Glare of Subdual goes well with Renewal as opponent creature lockdown using tokens. Nullmage Shepherd can wreck opponents artifact or enchantment strategies.
Felidar Retreat is a new enchantment in Zendikar Rising for tokens. It's repeatable no mana cost Township effect or create a Cat token just by playing a land. Worth adding Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and Myriad Landscape it adding Retreat. Champion of Lambholt can make your token army unblockable since she grows each time a token is created.
Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter combines well with Good-Fortune Unicorn to make each token created a mana dork. Jiang can put a counter on Emmara making it easier to tap her while also making mana. If going the Vehicle route for crew then Aethersphere Harvester and Untethered Express are some budget upgrades.
Cards to consider cutting:
- 2x Forest
- 2x Plains
- Blossoming Sands
- Anointer Priest
- Crusader of Odric
- Attended Healer
- Infiltration Lens
- Curse of Bounty
- Renegade Freighter
- Ovalchase Dragster
- Fleetwheel Cruiser
- Krosan Grip
- Entrapment Maneuver
- Collective Unconscious
Good luck with your deck.
