For your strategy, I'd focus on either infect or +1/+1 counters since the list seems to be a bit "busy" with too much going on. Once you choose which way you'd like to take the deck, we can further tweak - proliferation will still be central to your overall plan.

Here are some suggestions by color that you might want to consider adding to your mainboard:

:

Heroic Intervention, Nature's Lore, The Great Henge, Three Visits.

:

Akroma's Will, Flawless Manuever, Smothering Tithe, Teferi's Protection, Trouble in Pairs.

:

Cyclonic Rift, Fierce Guardianship, Mana Drain, Swan Song.

Permission Denied

I think you can get away with swapping out removing some counter spells as it seems a bit overkill - Cancel, Dispel, Envelop, Negate, and Nullify could probably come out in favor of Fierce Guardianship, Mana Drain, and Swan Song (the others could just be cut).

For your land base, I'd work the following lands in to help with your color wheel:

Fetch Lands: Flooded Strand, Misty Rainforest, Windswept Heath

Filter Lands: Flooded Grove, Mystic Gate, Wooded Bastion

Pathways Lands: Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Branchloft Pathway  Flip, Hengegate Pathway  Flip

Shock Lands: Breeding Pool, Hallowed Fountain, Temple Garden

Tri-Cycle Land: Spara's Headquarters

True Duals: Savannah, Tropical Island, Tundra

For mana rocks, I prefer the talismans over the signets:

Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Unity

I think your Kros, Defense Contractor list is in a good spot, it just needs to be a little more focused.

Welcome to the club, euqinU

Building your deck on here will give everyone an in-depth view of where it is and what might help it grow. Simply saying you need more mana production is good, but there's not much we can do beyond listing the basic stuff that your friends have already probably mentioned: Rattleclaw Mystic, Talisman of Curiosity, Gruul Signet, and so on.

Is this for a 60-card format or a 100 card format? That basic land base is okay for a fast, aggressive 60 card deck, which would include formats like Standard or Pioneer, but is a little short for slower 60-card decks, and it's very low for 100-card formats like Commander, which tend to be in the 34-38 land range. I assume you're starting off pretty casual, but if you want a quick overview of some of the major formats, just ask.

Rasaru Thank you for commenting and giving me some advice. I really appreciate this!

For my budget, I would like to include some cards that cost about 10€ each, in total I would say I can afford about 100€ +/-20 (the lesser the better).

After testing the Deck for my own, I agree that my manabase needs some fixes. I ordered some cards to upgrade this a bit (see below).

As I am trying to put as many counters on my board as possible, I feel, that the creatures that do not create tokens like Kumena's Speaker, could be excluded?

I got some pending deliveries. Here are the cards that I bought to upgrade it:

Lord of Atlantis, Master of the Pearl Trident, Snakeskin Veil, Realmwalker, Double Major, Forced Adaptation, Kiora, Master of the Depths, Deeproot Champion, Merfolk Skydiver, Primal Empathy, Vastwood Fortification  Flip, Oversimplify, Tangled Islet, Flooded Grove, Rejuvenating Springs, Utopia Sprawl, Dreamroot Cascade, Talisman of Curiosity, Simic Signet, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Barkchannel Pathway  Flip, Svyelun of Sea and Sky, Windswept Heath

I am not sure what to exclude and what to include.. (fyi I am playing for half a year, Thank you in advance!

Major update!

The deck has been running well when I draw the right cards, but stalls out or is clunky when I don't draw good cards. I think the best starting point to smooth the deck out is by reducing the amount of counterspells to open up room for smoother mana (in the form of mana rocks), spells that asymmetrically counteract something but benefit me, and some stronger walls that - although will cost more - will have better payoffs. That all being said, here's the ins/outs.

Out: An Offer You Can't Refuse... Wall of Vines... Stoneskin... Wall of Resistance... Treefolk Umbra... Mana Leak... Bane's Contingency... Wall of Stolen Identity... Vedalken Orrery... Wall of Ice... Render Silent

In: Heroic Intervention... Fog Bank... Snake Umbra... Wingmantle Chaplain... Brave the Sands... Talisman of Curiosity... Talisman of Unity... Talisman of Progress... Wall of Nets... Eerie Interlude... Champion's Helm

A lot of card swaps which we'll test out. Some may get reversed back in. That's the fun of developing a deck over time!

Ill stick to just the mana base for now. Far too many of your lands enter the battlefield tapped. This will make your deck extremely slow, even against pre-constructed decks. I suggest that you swap in some basic lands, and cut ETB tapped lands like Tranquil Cove. You can make up for the lack of color fixing with the "talisma" mana rock cycle.

Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Progress, and Talisman of Unity. I think they're better in your deck than the signets. Also, if you need color fixing after diluting your lands, you can try a few effects. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is a favorite, and so is Chromatic Lantern.

Also I'm not a fan of Frilled Mystic in this deck, wayyy too color intensive even with fixing effects.

Further, the single Walk the Aeons is the only piece of that combo in your deck. I suggest adding some more extra turns spells so the combo can resolve through graveyard hate, countermagic, or just bad luck. Additionally, some instant/sorcery tutors would be good. Solve the Equation is a good budget option, but Mystical Tutor is an even better tutor.

I also suggest asking your play group if they would be OK with proxying cards so you can get a feel for the format. Get a high quality printer (like at a library) and find a site that lets you print proxies. I like deckstats. net.
