Creature — Cat
When Pridemalkin enters the battlefield, put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control.
Each creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it has trample. (This creature can deal excess combat damage to the player or planeswalker it's attacking if lethal combat damage would be dealt to all blocking creatures.)

Thanks for the suggestion, Balaam__! My thought goal with Bladed Pinions was to incorporate more evasion, as none of the Squirrels have any, and with Toski, Bearer of Secrets , it really pays to evade. Additionally, I don't want to spend a ton of mana to play or equip, so more powerful options, while alluring, don't seem better. I considered something like Pridemalkin , Tuskguard Captain , and Bramblewood Paragon , but none are directly related to squirrels, and all are greater targets for removal, so I went with a less powerful option? I'd love to hear your thoughts on all that along with how your suggestion of Lightning Greaves factors in!

Love your choice for commander and the deck!
I'd suggest adding some cards that make him harder to block or at least able to punch through with a bunch of damage. You could consider adding cards that give him trample like Pridemalkin , Tuskguard Captain , Rancor or Loxodon Warhammer . Or you could just make him straight up unblockable with cards like Whispersilk Cloak , Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm .

No way to give Wildwood Scourge ?
Maybe one less Gemrazer since you have two you can repeatedly use. There can't be that many artifacts and enchantments.
I have other suggestions but those are the top ones that come to mind... Oh and Sparring Regimen could be great too.

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.

25(excluding the second Lurrus of the Dream-Den) out 64 cards in this deck have a converted mana cost of 3 or higher. Can you look at how Lurrus of the Dream-Den works again and decide wether you want to take him out or take out all the cards (+1x Lurrus of the Dream-Den) listed above?

Are the Light of Hope present for their enchantment breaking mode too ? If not, maybe Feat of Resistance* or Swallow Whole are more interesting: they still give a +1/+1 counter while eliminating an opponent's creature and/or protecting one of yours.
I see that you didn't include Tempered Veteran, so I don't think you'll be interested into Hornbash Mentor (who's useful thanks to the Pridemalkin). (About that cat, it might make Ram Through a more appealing anti-creature.) Furthermore, to stay in Ikoria, you have two counter-generating mutations: Glowstone Recluse and Vulpikeet. They can both help against flying creatures (giving respectively Reach and Flying) but are probably too costly for two or one counter only, maybe they would be O.K. as side cards unless the escape spider is enough?
A few Idyllic Granges could have been nice if you were playing more plains...
Sorry for the disturbance !
*Heroic Intervention was my prefered choice of protection but it doesn't contribute to the theme.
