Shalai seems a bit strange to lead a token army since people rarely target tokens. Rhys the Redeemed seems like a better fit.
Beastmaster Ascension is a great finisher.

I would also look at adding more lower cost ramp cards - Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves - these all help speed up the deck. Devoted Druid is not cheap, but is really good with Shalai as you can get a bunch of +1/+1 counters on druid and then trade them all for a lot of mana. Adding Vizier of Remedies to the mix gives you infinite green, which gives you infinite +1/+1 counters.
I would also look at more card advantage. Green/White struggles in this area, however you have options like Mentor of the Meek, Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Eladamri's Call, even Selvala, Explorer Returned.

Well, Green secretly has some of the best graveyard recursion. We all know the glory of Eternal Witness and Reclaim. There is also Restock and some others. I am particularly fond of Wildest Dreams since ramping into a big X value is often easily achieved and it's a cheap card.
It's hard to devote deck space to such "boring" utility though.

Hmmm... It's FAST, but what's the idea? It seems to be Isochron + Dramatic Reversal/Paradox Engine into AEtherflux Reservoir. That or Big mana into draw your deck and Lab-Man win. If I'm missing something, please let me know!
Overbeing of Myth seems like a "meh" card in my opinion. It seems way out of place and slow for the deck build. I feel like another counterspell to support your very tall tower would be better suited. Voidslime and Disallow are super versatile, while Negate and Delay are cheaper, but will protect most of your pieces long enough to go off.
Now for some strictly Better replacements (for cheap!):Nature's Spiral-->Regrowth (Get ANYTHING back instead of just a permanent!) Also Consider Reclaim and/or Noxious Revival to set up a good card for Rashmi to mini-cascade into.Slight of Hand-->Preordain. Strictly better as you could possibly dig one deeper. You may run them both, though, I imagine.
Finally, A nice trick with your commander is the 0-CMC cards with suspend are cast for free without suspend! Ancestral Vision and Lotus Bloom are the big ones for your deck (I don't think Hypergenesis Really fits the build, though!). They also can be early plays when you're not ramping for value mid-game.
I hope that was of SOME value. Happy Flipping!

If you want an easy win con, you could replace Reclaim with Memory's Journey - they do about the same thing (though Journey can save you if you fizzle on labman) but it also forms a loop with it, Noxious Revival and either Reality Shift (which you don't run but easily could) to exile each opponent's library or Swan Song + any counterspell target for infinite 2/2 swans.

@enpc thanks for the comment!
Interesting idea with Dark Petition since almost a quarter of the deck goes towards spell mastery. Will def consider it. I run Reclaim over Regrowth strictly for another Isochron Scepter target if need be.
Memnarch is crazy strong when paired with a lot of mana; but at the same time can be a dead card in hand or put a target on your back on the 'field. It's one of the three main wincons, treated similar to a Laboratory Maniac insta-win, but can still do work without infinite mana.
Aetherflux Reservoir again can win without infinites, but all the fetch/shock lands, mana rocks, and enchantments that cost life can hurtttt

Rune-Scarred Demon could easily be Dark Petition to help make it more castable. Memnarch seems bad (in general) but especially in this list. it's too expensive and you already have enough infinite mana outlets. You can also swap Reclaim out with Regrowth.
I also run a Dramatic Scepter Thrasios/Tymna build: Triton Weaver if you wanted to get any ideas.

Hello, thanks for the upvote and comment on my deck! Imperial Seal is not required at all, your deck will still function excellently without one. In fact, I don't find myself playing my deck very often because of how linear it is. That's my biggest complaint about the deck actually, although it's a complicated combo, it always wins in the same way (usually starting with Protean Hulk). It's sort of like playing Ad Nauseam in Modern. Oh well.
Anyways, here's my suggestions for your next upgrades: Eternal Witness, Birthing Pod, Dance of the Dead (I like the enchantment reanimate spells because of the interaction with Leonin Relic-Warder), Life/Death, and maybe a Journey to Eternity Flip. If you get a Birthing Pod, Felidar Guardian becomes amazing, allowing you to turn any 3-drop into a 5-drop. Recruiter of the Guard is great at finding combo pieces and not too pricey. Altar of Bone and Eldritch Evolution are great ways to add consistency to your combo as well.
For cuts, I would suggest Will-o'-the-Wisp, Angel of Glory's Rise, and maybe Utopia Sprawl (looks like you sometimes won't have a forest when you want to cast this). I think Selvala and Yahenni are OK for now, but I like Caustic Caterpillar more than Qasali Pridemage. I also think some of the above suggestions are better than Breath of Life, Zombify and Reclaim.
One more thing, I like the idea of Entomb in this deck (yours and mine), mostly because having a Blood Artist in the 'yard is nearly always better than having it in the deck. I think I will add it to my list, so I appreciate that. I'll subscribe to your deck and try to keep up with any changes, and remember that my suggestions are just a quick takes and you always have the right idea for what will work best in your deck!
