Creature — Treefolk
Evolve (Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if that creature has greater power or toughness than this creature, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature.)
Whenever one or more +1/+1 counters are put on this, you may create a 1/1 green Squirrel creature token.

Just some thoughts on cards I think you should look at Daemogoth Titan Season of Growth Cathars' Crusade Carrion Feeder Scurry Oak Finale of Devastation Anguished Unmaking Rite of Oblivion Vanishing Verse Lolth, Spider Queen Liliana, Dreadhorde General Gavony Township Mikaeus, the Lunarch Westvale Abbey Flip Mystifying Maze

@albert9367 thanks for the comment! Sorry for the late reaction, I haven't played in a few years. There's a ton of creatures that just add extra counters (like Lae'zel, Vlaakith's Champion), I prefer it if they are more unique (like Kami of Whispered Hopes. I've recently added the cards below the deck, and put the some away that I wasn't excited about when I had them in hand. (still working on taking more of these out, but I need to play more)
It's now even more synergistic between tokens, +1/+1 and rage effects. And stuff like Fiendlash fits in with my other 'weird' cards to keep things unpredictible and fun for everyone rather than combo off with +1/+1 or tokens every game.

Tough Cookie from Wilds of Eldraine fulfills the 3x food requirement for both Sam and Pippin, and works well next to Feasting Hobbit to support the beatdown side-plan. Noncreature artifact doesn't have to be food, so I could run artifact lands if I really wanted to get cute, but basics are probably still better. It also lets Witch's Oven and Altar of Dementia sacrifice themselves in response to removal, which is non-zero value.
Maybe dropping the Deadly Dispute and Trail of Crumbs for 4x Collected Company? It broadcasts itself in a deck that otherwise runs at sorcery speed, but the power level is undeniable. Would probably want a creature-based sac outlet that can be found by Company to get the Sam combo, since you're losing the ability to find Altar of Dementia with Trail of Crumbs (and/or a creature to feed self-mill for Sam, maybe Sarinth Steelseeker?). Another copy of Grist could find its way in as well, fetchable removal is quite good. With Company costing four the deck might want to run another couple of lands, too (same with Cookie being mana-hungry).
Another option is Invasion of Ikoria Flip, which is guaranteed to find a combo piece (swapping in Viscera Seer as the sac outlet), is sometimes cheaper than Company, allows throwing in a silver bullet like Vampire Hexmage and a Dryad Arbor for ramp if you need it, and doesn't restrict deckbuilding otherwise like Company does so I could keep my other non-creatures around. A single Scurry Oak could find its way in for the combo with Rosie, but I don't like it as much. Not sure I want to play a tutor at all, though, since it's a casual deck. Plus it's monetarily costly compared to the rest of the non-lands in the deck. It does have the ability to get things from the graveyard, which is nice if I'm playing some self-mill to feed Sam already. Which I don't need to do (especially since I'd be swapping out Altar for Seer), but I want to because I like value. If Sam could get it out of the grave it'd be bonkers, but I think I'm pretty thankful he can't.
Hopefully Wilds gives me even more ways to play with my food!

Going to list a bunch of cards you probably don't want in your deck for fun
Shalai, Voice of Plenty, decent protection and mana sink
Gwenna, Eyes of Gaea, you only have like 3-4 hits for the untap so meh
Akroma's Will killer card, and it's instant speed
The Weatherseed Treaty is... cute? one less land than kodama's reach, but it then makes a token, then it gives a creature like +2/+2... Ok not amazing, but it does give trample too?
Congregation at Dawn cute tutor
Angel of Grace is a lot of mana to hold up when your opponent will likely just combo for an alt win con but it's also based
Farmer Cotton not flash unfortunately, but it is an X token creator and it makes food too which is cute?
The Battle of Bywater is also cute, although you don't care about food, and your alternatives give you other benefit like having a side castable in the graveyard
Mosswort Bridge feels decent when you know for sure your commander has that 10 power condition satisfied.
Traverse the Outlands based card, can be sad when your big creature is removed in response, but it's based so...

to your point: "Scurry Oak + Cathars' Crusade ... Playing Scurry Oak with Crusade in play will trigger Crusade to put a counter on Scurry, generating a token creature. Infinity ensues for as many token creatures you want that keep growing and growing in power. Bonus, if you have Shalai in play, you also get all the damage your opponents can eat! Alternatively, if you have Elemental Bond in play, you can essentially draw your entire deck once you have 3+ creatures out (don't kill yourself, be reasonable, lol). NOTE: If, in reality, you do have Elemental Bond out, please realize that you are not technically going infinite ... you can stop this anytime you want because Scurry Oak says "You MAY create a 1/1 ...", so all you have to do is decide not to make a token creature to end the loop and not deck yourself."
how is it supposed to work that you draw cards with Elemental Bond, the tokens all come into play as 1/1

This a really interesting deck with a really well written and understandable primer. Nice job.
Im not sure what really to recommend.
Pentavus could be a good redundancy option as it can go infinite with Cathars' Crusade if you can tap the new creatures for mana, also maybe something like Impact Tremors to combine with your infinite Scurry Oak
My last idea would be Devoted Druid as this could add infinite mana to some of your infinite token combos, you could tap it response to a token entering to float mana, then put a negative counter on it to untap it before the Cathars' Crusade trigger resolves, then hey presto, the new +1 counter will remove the -1 counter used to untap it? I think that would work anyway.
Hope these suggestions are somewhat useful:)

Mikaeus, the Lunarch might have a little more synergy with your deck than Victory's Envoy since you can keep making him into a bigger beater with Bright-Palm and you can use his tap abilities more often alongside Drumbellower.
And since you don't seem to be avoiding infinite combos, Scurry Oak and Herd Baloth combo with Cathars' Crusade can produce as many tokens as you want. You could also swap out either Renata, Called to the Hunt or Good-Fortune Unicorn for a Ivy Lane Denizen, which can also combo with the Oak and Baloth.
If you don't want to add more infinite combos to the deck but still want some strong plays, it might be worth checking out Iridescent Hornbeetle. It can produce a very strong board very quickly in conjunction with Cathars' Crusade or Mikaeus, the Lunarch.

Gala Greeters doesn't really do much at all for you here, and there's probably better options to run instead of it. Personally I'd remove it for some kind of mana dork - which would then let you probably go down to ~21-22 lands.
You probably want some kind of interaction to stop your opponent from winning before you get your engine running.
