Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter Discussion

I know, I know, I hate to recommend it...
But with that being said, it looks like you're playing a lot of proliferate and big creatures with trample, so I'd recommend some infection. You don't have to change too much of the deck, but a few cards here and there can be the difference between doing a lot of damage to someone and killing them outright.
Phyrexian Swarmlord . He has infect, he makes mini-infectors for every poison counter out there. It's great. You can even use your commander to buff up the small ones so that you don't have to swing with Swarmlord himself!
Triumph of the Hordes . This card can cause you to kill everyone out of nowhere. Swing in at everyone for a lot of damage, they'll usually block enough to live assuming regular damage. This card makes it a lot harder for your opponents to do that.
Melira, Sylvok Outcast . This card gives all your creatures infect. It can also counter other infect players. Just a good creature overall that will demand removal over your commander.
If you're not looking to use infect to win, then I'd still recommend a few cards that are cheap:
Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter . This gives all your creatures with +1 counters the ability to create mana. Free ramp!
Leyline of Anticipation . Casting at instant speed is very powerful. It reduces the amount of time between attacking and letting your opponents interact with your board.
Last but not least! Rashmi, Eternities Crafter . Just a good value card that can help you to draw an extra card each turn or even cast something big!
I hope these suggestions help, and good luck with your deck!

As a disclaimer, some of these are not perfect 1:1 replacements. Essentially, any card on the remove side can be swapped for any card in the replace side. Remove-Replace Blind Obedience - Kismet : Slowing down your opponent's lands is huge and will make you "faster" in comparison
Huatli's Raptor - Mikaeus, the Lunarch : HR is low cost, which implies it will come out early, but it really works best midgame. Mikaes scales to any point in the game and can proliferate faster with all your "untap creatures" effects.
Inexorable Tide - Unbreakable Formation : IT is flashy, but slow to build up. UF is cheap, can save your creatures from a wipe, and if cast during your main phase, basically gives you a free combat round with no consequences.
Caustic Caterpillar - Black Sun's Zenith : You have tons of artifact/enchantment removal and without graveyard recursion, CC is just too small. BSZ can be cast for X=1 and then can be proliferated. Plus it recurs itself.
A few cards I found that would work great in this deck, but had no easy replacements: Gleam of Authority , Together Forever , Orochi Hatchery , Citadel Siege , and (I know you used to have it here) Vorel of the Hull Clade

I mean this in the kindest way: I think you're packing too many big guns without enough ramp and utility. I don't think 4 ramp spells, especially Legendary ones, are sufficient to crank out creatures fast enough, let alone protect them and disrupt opponents.
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood seems like a good fit here, as does Utopia Sprawl . And you really can't go wrong with Birds of Paradise , either, but Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic will work just was well. I'd encourage you to run at least 6x ramp spells. I'm speaking from my experience trying to build Elf Warrior Tribal, mono-green +1/+1 counters, mono-white +1/+1 counters, Selesnya +1/+1 counters, and Simic +1/+1 counters. In each case, speed and resiliency have been the major factors determining the deck's success or failure. The best of all of those, incidently, is mono-white +1/+1 counters, because it's the fastest, and because white offers so many useful spells at low CMCs. All that said, there are a ton of spells that are relevant here and I wish you the very best of luck in finding a winning assemblage.
So here's a list of spells of varying cost that might be helpful: Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Hunger of the Howlpack , Inspiring Call , Simic Ascendancy , Hydroid Krasis , Tezzeret's Gambit , Incubation Druid , Vinelasher Kudzu , Chasm Skulker , Servant of the Scale , Arcane Adaptation , Metallic Mimic , Tuskguard Captain , Vines of Vastwood , Heroic Intervention , Incubation / Incongruity , Beast Within , Pongify , Turn to Frog , Fog , Harmonize , Return to Nature , Field of Ruin , Scavenger Grounds , Muddle the Mixture , Negate , Cyclonic Rift , Vapor Snag

Fate Transfer might be useful.
On the more expensive side of things... Hydroid Krasis .

To put +1/+1 counters on your slivers so Volrath can copy one: Durable Handicraft , Unity of Purpose , Generous Patron , Vigor , Vraska, Swarm's Eminence , Bow of Nylea , Forgotten Ancient , Experimental Kraj, and Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter . Since you only need 1 sliver to have a counter mass +1/+1 counter generators are probably unnecessary and you only need a few of these, maybe 3-5, to ensure you reliably see one.
Since all you need is a single counter on a single sliver to get all of the keywords, Arcane adaption, etc. seem unnecessary. Unless you are going for a janky win like with Liliana's Contract (I have tried it).
Very fun idea!

I already have copies of Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter so it'll be easy to interchange between that and Vivien, Arkbow Ranger for testing with the Evolution Sage so I'll definitely look into playing around with them both and seeing how they play.
Appreciate the time and insights!
