An Evolution Sage could really kick up the counter generating.

I like the proliferation with managorger. I think you dont have enough planeswalkers to make Bioessence Hydra really worth it. Kalonian Hydra is the MVP for any counters deck IMO, and he costs the same mana. I get if youre trying to do something different, but that would be a suggesstion.

Other great proliferate creatures you might like:

Evolution Sage, partnered with Cultivate can be pretty cool, turns Broken Bond into a proliferate card also

Fathom Mage is completely underrated and great card draw

Herald of Secret Streams is a wincon card that can surprise opponents especially if youve got a beefy managorger

Give / Take for card draw and of course

Bioshift to respond to kill cards targeting gorger, suddenly the creature they didnt kill/block is a 20/20.

This deck isn't standard-legal with Enter the Unknown , Jadelight Ranger , and Pelakka Wurm .

Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi gets you nine +1/+1 counters. Simic Ascendancy gets you an alternate win-con (has helped me a lot when I can't get through my opponent's board), and Evolution Sage is just awesome, particularly with Fabled Passage . Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter is an interesting thing to put in the deck, since it gives +1/+1s and some ramp when you need it.

Jace, Arcane Strategist isn't really good, particularly for a six-mana planeswalker (same with Jace's Ruse ). Spark Double is too expensive for the effect, and I don't really think Growth Spiral fits with the gameplan here.

This looks a bit like my old +1/+1 counter deck, and while I will say that GW is probably better colors... I see where you're coming from here. No matter what, though, you need to do some tinkering with your mana base. Less islands, more duals. Unfortunately, the tried-and-true Thornwood Falls would serve only to make this slow deck slower, and enemy duals are in short supply in pioneer. Try Temple of Mystery - it should be something you can find for an all-right price these days, and scrying is nice. Having so many islands and so comparatively few blue spells is... good in moderation. 9:7 forests:islands for a 19:4 mana symbol ratio (nearly 5:1!!) is absurd. You should be running 4 or 5 islands, at most- or all of your blue mana should come from duals.

With that out of the way, suggestions!

Avatar of the Resolute is a big ol' meat stick that can swing in for heaps of damage.

Barkhide Troll is a resilient threat that basically has Schrodinger's Hexproof as long as you leave up 1 mana.

Benthic Biomancer could be good for the curve and the lacking card draw.

If you're in a slow meta that will allow you to make a turn 3 play like this, Bred for the Hunt draws an assload of cards.

Chasm Skulker just gets huge and is resistant, somewhat, to removal.

Managorger Hydra is a finisher for 3 mana. It'll make your opponents think twice before doing anything.

Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea are important spells that also put counters on creatures.

Pollenbright Druid and Evolution Sage can get you proliferating all over the place!

Tuskguard Captain and Zegana, Utopian Speaker are both good finishers.

Wildborn Preserver is an excellent mana sink if the game goes long.

Consider some of those suggestions.

Daveslab2022 on Sarkhan Proliferate Temur Control

This deck looks like it has real potential, but it also seems all over the place. I think Evolution Sage is a very win-more card. What that means is that it’s amazing when you’re already doing what you wanna be doing (getting counters on sarkhan), but by itself it’s pretty mediocre. It doesn’t help your game plan - controlling the game, and by the time you’ve landed Sarkhan, hopefully you’ve got the game fairly locked up with him on the field. I would suggest replacing it with a more controlling card, or ramp. Sylvan Caryatid is something I would highly recommend, helping ramp, and being an amazing blocker against aggro.

Also, Bonecrusher Giant has been surprisingly good for me, killing an early creature on T2 and then being a good body on T3 to block.

Deck looks really good for a first draft.

Evolution Sage - I was a greedy shit and ran all 10 fetches.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Ends games fast and outside of combat.

Sage of Hours - Feels cute sometimes but moving counters to this guy can get nuts.

Together Forever is a flavor win that works surprisingly well here.
