Looking good! I tried a Pauper EDH deck built around Sigil Captain in the past, and it's fun seeing what undercosted bruisers you can get by looking at all of the 1/1s with funky abilities. I feel like you got most of the heavy hitters, but sometimes some creatures that aren't 1/1s can help your cause!
I think the most impressive of these is Safehold Elite - since Persist brings her back with a -1/-1 counter and +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters cancel each other out... no matter how many times she dies, Sigil Captain will let her come back as a 3/3! An unkillable 3/3 should be even more impressive than the various 1/1s who give you a replacement on their death. Another handy creature to keep around is Ainok Bond-Kin - though his 2 power might keep him from picking up the Captain's boost, giving First Strike to all of your other creatures makes them even more of a pain to deal with in combat. They become even more fearsome when gang-blocking, letting three innocuous creatures take down a rampaging Ulamog's Crusher - your foe's creatures won't stand a chance! Sporeback Troll likewise gets in on the +1/+1 counter love, letting you regenerate any of your other creatures for a measly two mana.
As far as other handy 1/1s go, I think it might be worth considering Deftblade Elite , Faerie Guidemother , Hungry Spriggan , Selesnya Evangel , Shinewend and Soltari Trooper . Having some extra removal never hurts, and some of these creatures can hit a lot harder than their size suggests!

First of all, your curve is high so you need way more mana acceleration, especially early game.
Here are some other suggestions:
Buried Ruin, Dread Statuary, Gavony Township, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, Krosan Verge, Blighted Woodland, Canopy Vista, Scattered Groves, Castle Garenbrig, Bala Ged Recovery Flip instead of basic lands.

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! :)

I just started brainstorming my Pako deck today too! Under protection a few cards that I'm looking into are Plaxcaster Frogling and Sporeback Troll, though I'm going more into +1/+1 counters matter than making a hulking Pako so there's some extra utility there for me. Under your free spells section, you should 100% include As Foretold, it can be used on Pako's fetched cards and during your opponent's turns!
I'm looking forward to following this deck as it progresses!

Looks Good! Some new cards from Ikoria: Layer of Behemoths might suit you well. I particularly like The Ozolith, Nesting Grounds, and Luminous Broodmoth. Other cards you might like include Glen Elendra Archmage (who you can basically infinitely counter target spells if you have Master Biomancer or Bloodspore Thrinax with counters), Karn's Bastion, Sage of Fables for card draw, Sporeback Troll for protection, Death's Presence for counters upon creature death, Steelbane Hydra for targetted removal, and Bramblewood Paragon for trample.
