Cool take on a treefolk deck! I love the trees so much :) I'm not sure what purpose Abundant Growth serves beyond card draw, however. I would also like to point out that the Banneret reduces costs by a colorless mana so Essence Warden won't hit the field for free, her creature type doesn't help you unfortunately.

Might I suggest you include some Everbark Shaman ? You won't need a full playset since it's so expensive in CMC, but he's best friends with Battlewand!

Traditionally these lists run Martyr of Sands and Soul's Attendant . The old school variants used Squadron Hawk for bigger martyrs, most modern lists are red/white for Norin the Wary / Genesis Chamber .

Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos are powerful tools to put a lot of lifegain creatures on the board. Black white 'pay life'/ Children of Korlis is a thing. Condemn plays nice with alternative wincons. Essence Warden and cards like Weather the Storm point towards a green list, which would likely run some newer token-generation like Haazda Marshal & Legion's Landing  Flip.

Finally, stoneforge getting unbanned means that turn three Batterskull is on the menu, but also Sword of Light and Shadow .

Have fun brewing- martyr proc/soul sisters is a classic which deserves to be back in the meta.

1-drops are great with Chulane's ability, and I think you could take advantage of with Elvish Pioneer and Essence Warden / Soul Warden / Soul's Attendant and Hedron Crab .

You could also add more creatures that bounce your own creatures and replay them for value. Maybe check out Kor Skyfisher and Whitemane Lion and Jeskai Barricade and Quickling .

I think 3x Oran-Rief, the Vastwood should be ok, especially with mana-dorks to make up for slow-lands. That said, it may be that 19 isn't the right number of lands.

Another spell that seems relevant but still too slow: Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. I also think Fog will be very useful here, more so than Blossoming Defense / Ranger's Guile or Harmonize or Beast Within . That said, none of those spells will help against burn. So perhaps a life gain spell like Essence Warden or some-such would be useful, too.

cool deck.. you should drop a forest for Homeward Path .. if someone steals your ezuri in this current build you have no way of getting it back.

I would also cut a few of the dead elves like Essence Warden and Wellwisher for some protection. you seriously will get blown out if you play against blue or red and so you need cards like Veil of Summer and Heroic Intervention .. these will help push your spells through and the intervention will protect you from a board wipe (and also protect your lands)

I would drop cryptolith rite for Lignify because you have basically no removal. If someone drops a Linvala, Keeper of Silence youre basically toast

Essence Warden sideboard, perhaps? Imperious Perfect is pretty awesome.
