Looks really good for a first commander deck!
maybe drop Lifeforce unless your playgroup runs heavy black decks.
where's Beast Within?!
but +1 for going to commander! :)

Hey, a little more info about Elemental Bond and how good of a repeatable draw source it can be because you have easy access to Kaheera, the Orphanguard's +1/+1 anthem for Cats. Bond triggers when tokens are created that's a reason it has so much potential with Cats. Anthem effects are called static abilities and each one is applied to Cats as they enter the battlefield.
King of the Pride is the best example of how good Bond can be as a draw source because any 1/1 Cat ETB with 3 power which triggers Bond. Bond + King + Brimaz, King of Oreskos/Leonin Warleader for example when you attack can create 3 power Cats and draw a card when each one is created. White Sun's Zenith creates 2/2 Cats, but with Kaheera these Cats ETB as 3/3s; each Cat will trigger Bond which can draw a lot of cards. Kemba, Kha Regent creates 2/2 Cats which with Kaheera are 3/3s when they ETB which triggers Bond each time.
Having two anthem effects on the battlefield such as Kaheera and Regal Caracal also makes any 1/1 Cat ETB as 3/3 to trigger Bond. In fact if you have Bond + Kaheera on the battlefield then Regal will draw three cards when it ETB.
There's two Ajani's that are budget and their ultimates create Cat tokens: Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Both these Ajani's +1 loyalty abilities can give Cats permanent pump with +1/+1 counters, but they do other things also. Adversary is the better of the two because it's -7 is not hard to achieve, a turn faster than Caller and if you get the emblem it's a repeatable source of creating Cats at your end step. Adversary can also provides something that Selesnya wants which is creature reanimation. Ajani can reanimate a one or two drop Cat such as Bronzehide Lion or Fleecemane Lion which can be helpful to recover.

thanks Barbarian_Sun_Pope, indeed that nissa seems that can do just fine. Nacatl War-Pride is quite expensive too(manawise). The mirror seems interesting. and since is artifact does not require blue (most clone spells do need blue...) and works only for a turn. but that is fine.
so for mana fixing. i think this could help as well:
Cryptolith Rite (since the idea is to make cat tokens... ) and take out the birds?
Harvest Season (at the right time, (with enough cat copies tapped might help to get all the lands out of the deck... )
if it works things to consider:
White Sun's Zenith : well if we have tons of copies... that can produce mana, why not get more cats... (2/2 cat)

Nice decklist! I've been playing with the idea of building a commander deck around Winota myself. Here are some ideas:
If your mana base supports it, Wily Goblin could be a strong 2-Drop that enables playing Winota on turn 3 and immediately attack.
The new card Fight as One seems like an excellent protection spell for Winota decks.
Spectral Procession is another 3-drop non-human token producer you might wanna consider. I think it's very strong in the early game, provided your mana base supports tripple white.
In order to combat mass-destruction cards like Wrath of God I'm thinking of playing cards that can create non-human attackers at instant speed. That way you can flash in some attackers e.o.t., untap, play Winota and immediately attack. You already run Secure the Wastes, which is perhaps the best one. Further cards I'm thinking of include Decree of Justice, White Sun's Zenith, or even Aven Mindcensor.
On the same note, creatures that leave behind tokens when dying such as Grim Initiate or Martyr of Dusk could provide you with early-game attackers that are difficult to get rid of. Without Winota these cards are pretty weak though.
Avalanche Riders is human and gives you some land destruction against those pesky utility lands.
I think that Leave / Chance is an underrated protection spell against mass-destruction. Certainly not as strong as Boros Charm or Teferi's Protection, and doesn't rescue your tokens, but maybe worth testing.

- Sun Titan is the ideal card for you, being it can bring back some of your enchantments. He is about 2.00-2.50 per card. He also provides a lot of damage. White Sun's Zenith is tempting because it can produce a lot of monsters at instant speed, but doesn't go well with rouges passage. Student of Warfare can become a menace. Originally I wanted Luminarch Ascension being its EACH endstep that isnt yours, but its 2$ a copy. That card can win you games. Hard to remove a lot of flyers, especially when you can just poop them out for 2 mana. Oketra the True you can get for 1.19 if you get a damaged copy. She could also do well. She gets in for 6 damage, makes creatures as well as doesnt die from your own boardwipes.

I really like this thematic and I think you did a cool job building around it! :)
My first advice is that Estrid neither synergizes with your deck mechanically or, to my knowledge, thematically. Consider swapping her around and making Chulane your leader, since your deck seems to have more focus on ETB and card draw/land drops. Alternatively, Roon of the Hidden Realm seems like he would fit thematically and enhance your ETB effects.
Some more cards that seem like they'd fit your thematic and be useful: Timestream Navigator , Path of Discovery , Curious Obsession , Perilous Voyage , Chart a Course , Thaumatic Compass Flip, Dowsing Dagger Flip, Treasure Map Flip, Ongoing Investigation , Trail of Evidence , Map the Wastes
Some win con ideas: Avenger of Zendikar flickers well and works great with all your landfall triggers, White Sun's Zenith , Blue Sun's Zenith , or Entreat the Angels all give you places to dump your mana, Rite of Replication can be used to similar effect on one of your bigger guys or to get more ETB, Laboratory Maniac or the WotS Jace could let you try to win by decking yourself out with all your draw/land digging. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper and the various awaken cards from Zendikar could also work if you want to make your excess lands into beaters. Vigor would also be a strong win-con for your deck.
Hope this helps!
