Steel Leaf Champion
Creature — Elf Knight
Steel Leaf Champion can't be blocked by creatures with power 2 or less.

I think you need some bigger creatures to go with your evolve cards like Steel Leaf Champion as an example to get the most out of them. Also Pelt Collector has honorary evolve. Strangleroot Geist could be decent as well, especially with hardened scales.

Nice little build, you have the big ones out of the way inn cavern and nykthos, might want to look into Collected Company as it’s an absolute BOMB. Treespeaker imo is way to slow for modern, it’s usually a turn 3-4 format and leveling up takes time. Steel Leaf Champion is another one you might want to look into, a 5/4 for only 3 is great and is seriously underrated

So i’m a bit confused with the direction you’re trying to take here - it feels like you’re making 3 separate decks and trying to munge them together, with elements of ramp, +1 counters, and stompy. I think you need to pick a path and stick to it without deviation.
For a +1 counter deck, i’d expect to see stuff like Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Avatar of the Resolute, Grateful Apparition, Conclave Mentor, Dromoka's Command, and possibly 1-2 Verdurous Gearhulk as the decks ceiling.
For a stompy deck, i’d expect Aspect of Hydra, alongside Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Avatar of the Resolute, Steel Leaf Champion, Strangleroot Geist, Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, Vines of Vastwood, Rancor. Note this deck usually has no reason to splash a second colour.
for ramp, your cards should only ever be doing one of two things: either ramping you more mana (i.e Arboreal Grazer, Explore etc), or almost-immediately winning you the game (i.e Primeval Titan, Tooth and Nail, etc). Note these kinds of decks will often run 28-32 lands in their 60-cards.
So, my big suggestion is, to pick a clear path, and then stick to it

Oh right, I forgot RIP Leatherback Baloth. That one hurts.
But no Steel Leaf Champion?

Questing Beast seems like a solid addition, as well as Steel Leaf Champion. This might even be better as a Collected Company deck, if you want to cap the creatures at 3 CMC and shell out the money for CoCo... Just a couple of thoughts.
Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

This reminds me of a deck I had for a long time. It focused on using as many Green Mana Pips as possible. It had a handful of mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise, and/or Elvish Mystic to help ramp late-game win cons. The early threats included cards like Avatar of the Resolute, Predator Ooze, Leatherback Baloth, Strangleroot Geist, Garruk's Companion, and Steel Leaf Champion. Later in the game, I would use Primalcrux, Khalni Hydra, Aspect of Hydra, and Overwhelming Stampede to close out games. It was a lot of fun and made some huge attacks!

This seems a bit like a combination of RG midrange and RG aggro.
Bonecrusher is OK, but Ignoble is really not what you want if you want to be swinging with creatures every turn. Currently you have way more 3 drops than 1-2 drops which isn't great. I'd cut basically all of these cards, the best one out of them might be Domri.
2 drop: Hidden Herbalists, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Reckless Bushwhacker You definitely need 4 Bushwhackers. Burning-Tree into optional 2nd Burning-Tree into Reckless Bushwhacker is probably the strongest turn 2 play you can make. Add in Hidden Herbalists, and you can do stuff like Hidden Herbalists into Burning-Tree into Bushwhacker. Eidolon is a weirder choice but I've tried 4 before and it can be pretty good.
3 drop: Generally you want something from your 3 drops thats more than just a big stompy body like Steel-Leaf. Seasoned Pyromancer is a great 2 of, since you're casting 3 drops mid game and it lets you draw into more gas.
Spells: 4x Atarka's Command hands down. Card is cracked. Light up the stage is pretty decent but you could maybe try cutting down a few if you need space. 1-2 Savage Swipe is pretty funny, since you have a lot of 2 power creatures and it can put in extra damage while removing an opposing creature. If you decide to run 4 bolt 4 atarka 4 light 2 swipe then Swiftspear is a consideration.

I'd definitely run some more creatures, Pelt Collector and Steel Leaf Champion are some good ones. I'm not really sure how useful Utopia Vow is, I'd cut it. Similarly, I think its better to run more creatures than one time pump spells.
