Creature — Human Warrior
Creatures with power less than Den Protector's power can't block it.
Megamorph (You may cast this card face down as a 2/2 creature for . Turn it face up at any time for its megamorph cos and put a +1/+1 counter on it.)
When Den Protector is turned face up, return target card from your graveyard to your hand.

You definitely need more card draw Elemental Bond, Mouth / Feed, Skullclamp, Deathreap Ritual and Culling Dais would be my card engines of choice. With eight of them in the deck you should be able to have one most of the time.

So I like the idea. For a few key improvements I suggest the following:
Lower your CMC on ramp spells. For example replace Explosive Vegetation with Nature's Lore and Kodama's reach with Farseek and maybe add Rampant Growth. As described in the Command Zone primer, you want to get Animar out as soon as possible, so low cost ramp means you get to spend it mostly on turns 2-3.
Replace evacuation with Cyclonic Rift. It is universally better.
Instead of Fires of Yavimaya you can use Temur Ascendancy for the slight chance that you hard cast something without morph, in which case you get to draw cards. But this is really up to you
Icefeather Aven is really good cause you can bounce creatures to re-use them or opponents creatures for protection
Den Protector to get stuff from the grave! So good.
Also I think your land count is too high. I'd drop at least 35 personally, cause even if you're drawing cards later in the game, lands are dead in your hand, especially since Animar psuedo-ramps you.
That is it for now and I hope I have been helpful! If you need more ideas you can also check my list in my page, "Its all natural"

I love Abzan! Here are some suggestions:
1:Improve your creatures
Sylvan Caryatid would be helpful, too.
2:Improve your mana-base
Cut Sandsteppe Citadel.
3:Improve your spells
Replace them with Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, and Dismember or Maelstrom Pulse. Any of these two removal spells should be a playset(4), but all of them are just about the same.
3:Sideboard for Modern
Cut literally everything.
Stony Silence could be useful too.
If you choose to run Go for the Throat, sideboard a third removal option that can hit anything.
Leyline of Sanctity can hose just about any deck.
I couldn't really fit this stuff in without you cutting some other useful stuff, but cards like Kitchen Finks, Dark Confidant, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or Blind Obedience could worm their way into your deck.

Karador is hard to play: its super expensive, the cost reduction isn't really that great and you need to pay for the creature from your graveyard, so you probably won't be able to use his ability theturn you cast him. You got right that you need a lot of self milling.
I would add Satyr Wayfinder for a bit more of cheap milling. Maybe you could even fit The Gitrog Monster there to get some card draw out of all that milling you already have.
Sunblast Angel can be a nasty reusable board wipe.
The good part of karador is you can cast morphs from the graveyard, you lose the surprise effect but using the morph triggers maybe worth it. Den Protector is a nice second Eternal Witness.

Hi, I have a very similar elf focused Ezuri deck you might want to check out
Commander / EDH
SCORE: 2 | 44 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
My advice, swap everything you can into a power 2 creature with the same function: Bramblecrush for Acidic Slime, Naturalize for Viridian Zealot, Call to Mind and Nature's Spiral for Eternal Witness and Den Protector, Simic Signet for some ofther mana dork, if possible get a Priest of Titania, Exclude for Silumgar Sorcerer, you get the idea.
Most of your creatures are green but your counters most of them require double blue. Try to use low cost counterspells that requiere only one blue mana. It doesen't matter if they aren't hard counters, usually the non creature spells will be the most dangerous for your, especially the sorceries. Disdainful Stroke, Stubborn Denial, Swan Song. Counterspell on a creature are also great on this deck, specially if they have evasion on their own Stratus Dancer, Siren Stormtamer, Mausoleum Wanderer.
You will need a ton of card draw, much more than in any other deck. Your spells are cheap and you will empty your hand really fast. Life's Legacy and Give / Take (you can ignore the Give part) are my favourites for this deck because they are really low cost and give you a ton of cards. There are higher cost spells that will get you about as much without having to consume your creature or your +1/+1 counters, but the low cost is critical.
Door of Destinies will make prevent Ezuri from getting experience and is quite slow. You don't really need it because Ezuri is there to buff your creatures. For similar effects in a more efficient and explosive way Master Biomancer or Bloodspore Thrinax. The best thing is Cultivator of Blades because it gives you three experience ounters, and only buffs your guys when it attacks, so Ezuri keeps getting experience.
Mycoloth is absurdly good with Ezuri, they feed each other just what each one of them wants.
You will also need a tons of ways to save Ezuri, he will be the target of all your opponents removal.
Try to include as few lands that enter tapped as possible, a second turn Elvish Mystic is not half as good.

Hi there! Ezuri, Claw of Progress is one of my favorite decks. My take on him is a super low CMC deck, heavy on card draw with a bunch of reactions to save Ezuri and counter board wipe spells. Maybe you'd like to have a look Ezuri Turbo Tribal.
There are some budget cards specially good for this deck
Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip In a +1/+1 counters deck this card will most likely flip the turn cast it if you want.
Life's Legacy Amazing! sac one of your tokens with a bunch of counters on it and refill your hand for just two mana.
Give / Take The 'Take' half is similar card to the previous, you don't sacrifice the creature and still draw a lot of cards for a low cost. Most of the time you can forget about the 'Give', but still an option if needed.
Notorious Throng Create a bunch of flyers to boost Ezuri's experience even more. If you happen to have dealt damage with a rogue you will get an extra turn. Ezuri is BFF with the rogues, many of them are small creatures with evasion and sometimes badass abilities like the Cold-Eyed Selkie you run or Blighted Agent if you don't object to infect.
Pongify for a second Rapid Hybridization and Reality Shift because is the best blue removal.
Den Protector A second Eternal Witness with built-in evasion.
Whirler Rogue for just four mana you get three experience levels, two flying tokens and make creatures unblockable, definitely a must.
Sylvan Safekeeper and Wirewood Symbiote one mana drops to save Ezuri. The best part is when you have them on the Battlefield people won't even try to throw anything at Ezuri.
Looter il-Kor and Lu Xun, Scholar General Two mostly fully unblocable creatures that allow you to loot though your deck and draw cards.
Simic Charm multi purpose reaction, this card will get you out of most bad situations.
Fungal Sprouting If you play it with just Ezuri on the battlefield to get three saprolings is okay-ish, that's the amount of value the game expects you to get from a four mana uncommon sorcery. But in any other scenario this card will easily double or triple your experience.

Also, Morph creatures combo with Animar and Cloustone Curio since the morph cost is reduced. Consider Ainok Survivalist, Den Protector, or Stratus Dancer to go along with Rattleclaw Mystic. Also, Beastcaller Savant works in this loop.

This deck is stupid cheap, TBH the sideboard used to cost more than the deck itself (I made the original build without Avatar of the Resolute literally for 30 dollars), I would definitely try it out!
