Hello again! Here are some suggestions for this build:

Hey I just wanna say I love this deck! It bears quite a bit of similarity to my own Tana and Reyhan Partner Token Stuff. I'm digging the manland tech in Raging Ravine, that works very well with Reyhan and the like. One thing I'll recommend is to add in a manland like Mishra's Factory or Mutavault so that you can activate them, post-boardwipe, with Reyhan's +1/+1 counter triggers on the stack -- that saves them all and the reason those two are specifically called out is that they can tap for mana, and use that mana to become a creature. Once I drop Mishra's Factory, I basically don't use it as mana if Reyhan is out so that I can always save the counters. Have you thought about Dryad Arbor and Green Sun's Zenith ?
I recently discovered Fallen Ideal myself, that is one sweet piece of spice. Greater Good I ended up cutting, since i so rarely had large creatures, but your list looks like it might avoid that issue better than mine. I didn't even realize Thunderscape Familiar was a thing, that is fantastic.
What are some of the weak points you see in your list during actual gameplay? Mine is always a weakness to board wipes, obviously, but especially when someone turns off my ability to use Dictate of Erebos via Angel of Jubilation , Tajuru Preserver , or Sigarda, Host of Herons . An older version of your list was actually one of the main inspirations for the linked deck above, but I ended up taking it a bit more combo direction. You haven't lived until you get both Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest out to play with Reyhan on board. Purphoros, God of the Forge on board when I hit with Tana, the Bloodsower or chord out an Avenger of Zendikar ? Yes please.
Anyway, great deck! I love its current state.

I've never seen Karametra built that way but no reason it wouldn't work well. Green is the main lands matter color and white has some nice support cards. You should definitely check the edhrec page for suggestions as that will be the majority of the cards you'll want to get.
Lands matter and landfall more specifically are not necessarily things that win games. It will certainly rack up value but you still need something to take out life totals or choose another way to win. Taking a quick look at the page above tokens jumps out as a thing. Emeria Angel , Rampaging Baloths , Retreat to Emeria , and Avenger of Zendikar are all great at making tokens and love lands. Selesnya in general also just likes the whole token thing and has the best support for it. There is even stuff like God-Eternal Oketra which has the same trigger as Karametra though a different result.

In the meta I play in, people point a lot of removal at Omnath. Sabertooth helps keep his price from going up to high, as well as allowing me to repeat effects from things like Avenger of Zendikar and Eternal Witness . Though it is in the running for a cut in the future.

Heliogabale: Thanks for the comment! Wall of Kelp was in the wheelhouse but I decided to initially exclude it because of price concerns. Now that the deck has shifted away from a tiny budget, I've considered adding it. The tokens definitely fit the theme, but I don't feel that the price is worth what I'm getting, especially since the deck is shifting to better and better cards. Haunted Angel is super cool! I'll definitely add it to the roster of cards I want to try, if only there were more space am I right? Looks at land count menacingly Jiang Yanggu is an amazing suggestion, when I first saw your comment I looked inside myself and cursed my soul for I had not thought of him. Another on the roster! Rapid Hybridization is a good idea, but I don't want my opponents to get the weird tokens, I want them all to myself. Finally, since the day it was released, I've had Nadir Kraken in my Card Kingdom cart, and I can't wait for its release!!!
Lanzo493: Both lands would be pretty solid, but I think Khalni Garden is too common because who hasn't faced Avenger of Zendikar before right? Mirrorpool is a super interesting card and I have wanted to find a home for it for a while, but I think it's more suited to a Brudiclad deck, which I'm really trying to stop this from becoming. However, your suggestions did bring to mind Kher Keep , which makes the weirdest little kobold tokens, so I'll definitely be adding that to the roster.
Suns_Champion: Thanks for the suggestion! He's been in my Card Kingdom shopping cart since he was spoiled, just waiting until the whole set is spoiled to order him!

Thanks! Avenger of Zendikar is definitely good with Chulane, but in addition to already having two decks with heavy Panharmonicon /ETB strategies, I also have a landfall deck already. So I tried to stay away from that strategy too, even though Chulane is also basically the perfect Bant landfall commander.
My thought was Chulane has an on-cast trigger for creatures and he can return creatures to your hand. What other strategy might benefit from a commander like that? Turns out Bant has a ton of good flash creatures, many of which just have good static effects or ETB effects that don't really benefit from being doubled, like Frilled Mystic . I even included (for now) Hushwing Gryff to shut down other decks with heavy ETB strategies. My thought is that you should be able to just return it to your hand with Chulane before it becomes too much of a non-bo with the rest of the deck, but we'll see how it actually works. I'm hoping to order the remaining cards I need soon.

This deck is very well thought out and interesting. Love the idea to use flash creatures over Panharmonicon . I have a deck that uses chulane as it's commander as well, and recieved some suggestions for win-cons. One card I ended up not using but was a great mana sink was Entreat the Angels , and one I did end up using was Avenger of Zendikar
