First of all, your curve is high so you need way more mana acceleration, especially early game.

I'd recommend replacing 2-5 cards with cheap ramp like Rampant Growth, Three Visits, Mind Stone, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach and maybe Skyclave Relic.

Here are some other suggestions:

Camaraderie instead of War Report

Forsaken Monument instead of Golem's Heart

Conjurer's Closet instead of Dragon Mask

Throne of Geth instead of Energy Chamber

Inspiring Call instead of Sporeback Troll

Cathars' Crusade instead of Chief of the Foundry

Trading Post instead of Daring Archaeologist

Loyal Guardian instead of Arcbound Overseer

Kuldotha Forgemaster instead of Arcbound Bruiser

Ancient Stone Idol instead of Pardic Wanderer

Return of the Wildspeaker instead of Compost

Ugin, the Ineffable instead of The Wanderer

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.

Hey Bobs_Army & Elasar99 (great name btw!), thanks a lot for your input! I really appreciate it.

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! :)

Hey, thank you for your comment and your suggestions Voltaire26 !

I hadn't thought of As Foretold, great option ! I need to test it and find what to replace. But i like !

Plaxcaster Frogling and Sporeback Troll : I didn't build this deck around the + 1 / + 1 counters matter. More attractive in your deck ^^

But that gave me the idea to use other protective spells than counters. Like Steely Resolve, maybe Asceticism, Yavimaya Hollow

But I have to think about which cards to cut ^^

Don't hesitate to share your deck when you've finished your list!

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.

Nice list! You might like these: Nature's Revolt, Squandered Resources, Cauldron of Souls, Blighted Woodland, Jund Panorama, Grim Backwoods, Pitiless Plunderer (this guy is really cool cuz sacking the treasures triggers Mazirek), Fleshbag Marauder, Tribute to the Wild, Nim Devourer (you can sack the nim to itself for its ability, so it essentially gives you the ability to pay BB: put a + counter on all your dudes), Sporeback Troll, Oona's Blackguard, Winding Constrictor
