Esbilon is right, 19 lands is not enough, especially with the curve you have. The only time I would play 19 lands is with Burn or Infect. I'd suggest 21 lands. Splashing green might be an interesting prospect. you get access to mana dorks to help with your curve, Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch would be best but Avacyn's Pilgrim is a good budget option. You would also be able to play Tireless Tracker for would help you with card draw and Collected Company to get your humans out. Harmonize , Dromoka's Command , and Hardened Scales all work pretty well with humans. And Heroic Intervention and Blossoming Defense give you protection. You would also get access to Sigarda, Host of Herons and Sigarda, Heron's Grace if you need a way to protect against control.

Cobthecobbler , Hey Cob I'm in the process of brewing up my own Marath list and I had a few questions about your deck. 1. I noticed that very few of your creatures make tokens and I wanted to know if you ever ran into issues generating tokens, ie if Marath has gotten too expensive? 2. As a whole Marath has a lot of synergy with several enchantments and a hand-full of artifacts, is there a particular reason you didn't include cards such as Enlightened Tutor Idyllic Tutor Hardened Scales Purphoros, God of the Forge ? 3. How does the deck play? How does your playgroup react to it/does it draw ire? Thanks in advance!

@ThaneGarrus: hey man, good suggestions! I think these are all good cards and ended up in here if edh was a 110 card singleton, but just not optimal above what I currently have in my 100 card brew. I think Guardian Project has an edge over Path of Discovery and proliferate is just slightly to slow over Hardened Scales type of cards. Proliferate wants those overflowing chalice and planeswalker kinda effects, I lack those.
I do really like Hunter's Insight though. Often enough I connect a turn 3 Reyhan to someone.. It could really give a leap ahead.

And I guess I would make Anafenza, the Foremost your commander since she can come out pretty early.
As for Mana ramp I would recommend Smothering Tithe since it will give you treasures for color fixing and mana ramp. But you also have access to green so make sure to use spells like Kodama's Reach and Rampant Growth to get more lands onto the battlefield.
Stuff that all commander deck need are removal so make sure to add Swords to Plowshares and other pieces of single target removal and since you are in white and black toss one or two boardwipes in the deck in case things get out of hand.

Natural State is good. Recently I've moved away from 1 for 1s in my sideboards in favor of hosers like Manglehorn . This card gives Tron a surprisingly hard time, they lose the velocity of their eggs to cantrip into threats, Oblivion Stone can't wrath immediately, Wurmcoil Engine is laughable (either it comes in tapped and you untap to kill them, or you blow it up, the tokens come in tapped and you swing to kill it).
It's also great in combination with Dismember against Hardened Scales . But comparing the utility of a 3 Mana sorcery to a 1 Mana instant is a loose comparison at best. I think Unravel the Aether also gets points for tucking an Ensnaring Bridge while the opponent has Welding Jar in play.
