I'm bad at card substitutions, so I'm going to toss a bunch of card suggestions at you and wish you good luck.
Gavony Township is a neat land that puts +1/+1 counters that your deck might like.
Hopeful Initiate lets you turn +1/+1 counters into removal, I dumped one into my Mikaeus, the Lunarch deck and I have high hopes for it. Same for Sigarda's Summons(but for different reasons).
Champion of Lambholt is super cool if you can get enough +1/+1 counters on her. Less blockers? Yes please.
Hamza, Guardian of Arashin seems pretty cool. Kind of like a GW Animar, Soul of Elements. I don't know if your deck has enough of a creature focus to make Hamza a good pay-off for you, but in theory it could be good.
Archangel of Thune does something very similar to your commander, but the price tag (~$21 USD) is a bit much. (and it goes infinite with Scurry Oak or Herd Baloth and an ETB lifegain card) It could be very strong in your deck.
Felidar Retreat is a lot like Retreat to Kazandu but it gives counters to everyone. Yeah, it's not the best for triggering Trelasarra's ability (unless you have an ETB lifegain out) but it could still be a viable option for your deck.
Devoted Druid is super cool in +1/+1 counter decks if you can feed it counters to cancel out the -1/-1 counters you're going to be putting on it.

That is great to hear! Thanks for following the deck. It’s good you got yourself an Earthcraft. It’s insane how much they are now.
I think it’s a really good piece especially for one mana, but the only reason I won’t use it is because it puts counters on itself and not other creatures. I like all my counter sources to be able to combo with Ghave or persist creatures. It makes each piece more modal and feels much more “combo tribal” that way. It’s one of the reasons I eventually cut Champion of Lambholt.

Aminatou, Fate seer
Legendary Planeswalker- Aminatou
If you draw a card instead you may exile that many cards from the top of your library.
+1: you may cast a card exiles with Aminatou the Fate seer until end of turn.
-3: exile target creature, it’s controller creates a 1/1 white human
-8: put all cards exiled with Aminatou the Fate Seer that you own on the battlefield under your control. You lose life equal to the total mana value.
I feel that this represents messing with/seeing fate decently. If you don’t exile cards from the top instead of drawing you would still draw those cards.

Today is payday, so I'm ordering Tireless Tracker, Champion of Lambholt, Kyler, Sigardian Emissary, and Devout Chaplain. Tireless Tracker hurt to buy, but I don't think it's likely to come down in price anytime soon, so I think it was a good investment.
I ordered Beast Whisperer too. Poor elf is going to feel a bit out of place amidst all these humans and angels, but hopefully they'll accept him :P
Harmonize is cheap, so that was a no-brainer as well.
I've also started to think what I can cut and what I can replace.
I'm not sure yet where I'll add some of the other cards I just ordered, but I'll have to tinker around with the deck and see where I can replace things to get the most value. I might backtrack on some of this too after next time I play it. Cards like Cathars' Crusade and Beastmaster Ascension might put a mark on me, whereas sometimes those small budget spells can fly a bit more under the radar, such as Durable Handicraft. It doesn't really have a "reputation".
You're amazing though. I feel like you should get some credit as this deck's co-author haha

I've yet to have the chance to sit down across from a human tribal commander deck. Considering how much support the tribe has gotten over the years that kind of surprises me, you would think that they would be more common. This deck looks like it is gearing to be a fun human stompy deck and its price is pretty reasonable. Some key points you may want to pay attention to though is that the deck has very few removal options and I think there are some pump effects that you are missing out on.
Kyler, Sigardian Emissary is really affordable right now and looks like a good addition to help give your creatures some extra power to throw around. It conflicts with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa though. Still, it's a cheaper card to buy than Cathars' Crusade while giving a similar game-swinging effect, especially if you were to also run Increasing Devotion in the deck.
Good-Fortune Unicorn and Renata, Called to the Hunt do half of what Durable Handicraft can do but don't require you to pay mana to do it, letting you play more cards more easily in a turn while still giving you a pump effect. They help build up the +1/+1 synergies that you are already working with, like Abzan Falconer.
Champion of Lambholt Would be another way to help you to push a bunch of damage through and feeds a bit off of other cards you may rung that can pump it.
In regards to removal, I think that you should be running some more instant speed options instead of damage prevention cards like Repel the Abominable, since you don't need to worry about preventing the damage from creatures that are already dead. There are a number of good options. If you are worried about creatures dying then you could consider Valorous Stance since it is about to be reprinted and can both kill and protect.
Working in some creatures that double as removal is another way to go.
Kogla, the Titan Ape is a top-of-curve budget pick-up that can save your human creatures and lets you re-use ETB effects like Eternal Witness's, on top of doubling as removal.
Devout Chaplain is a particular payoff for running humans, giving access to a repeatable source of artifact and enchantment removal. Intrepid Hero also gives you a way to cut down your opponents' larger creatures while you build up your own forces.
As a random addition: Sakura-Tribe Elder can combo with Emeria Shepherd to pull a bunch of Plains out of your deck in one go.
Humans have a lot of options to work with so I imagine that you could be tinkering with this deck for a long while to figure out what you like and what you don't. I hope some of my suggestions help give you some ideas to try out.

rwn1971 - Champion of Lambholt won’t be copied by Volo, because it shares the Human creature type. Otherwise I think all of your swaps make sense. I’ve gotten too much value out of the Consecrated Sphinx to consider cutting it, but I’m definitely eyeing the Pathbreaker Ibex for a potential swap. Thanks for the update!

Very nice deck. A card like Arachnogenesis seems made for this deck. With Chatter on the field this really makes an ungodly amount of tokens. Speakin' of spiders, that reminds me: Arasta of the Endless Web, crazy good against any deck that likes slinging spells. Champion of Lambholt also seems very good for a deck that can generate this many tokens. Last but not least, I would really recommend Heroic Intervention to counter wipes against your token armies.
Good luck playing this; looks fun!

Some budget cards to consider adding:
Druids' Repository: each time a creature you control attacks you put a counter. At your post combat main phase you can then remove counters to make mana to cast the cards you drew from your creatures doing combat damage to opponents. You can remove counters at any point of the game to make mana.
Champion of Lambholt: makes creatures you control unblockable and it triggers whenever a token creature is created. Pair her with Howlpack Alpha, Tovolar's Packleader Flip, Cult of the Waxing Moon, Wolfcaller's Howl, etc.
Wolfcaller's Howl: in multiplayer Commander this can be a repeatable source of a lot of Wolves for no extra mana cost. It can be quick repeatable recovery from board wipes.
- Regrowth and Dryad's Revival: any card recursion.
- Fires of Yavimaya: haste enabler, even for token creatures, needed to combo with Packleader and Breath.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Arlinn, Voice of the Pack: compare her to Tovolar's Huntmaster Flip for a budget six drop who creates Wolves and she's really lackluster.
- Burly Breaker Flip: vanilla five drop Werewolf.
- Somberwald Alpha: subpar four drop Wolf, you have better trample enablers.
- Fangblade Brigand Flip: subpar four drop Werewolf.
- Moonrager's Slash
- Waxing Moon
- Door of Destinies: expensive price, too slow, not needed because you have Coat of Arms.
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Unclaimed Territory --> Gruul Guildgate
- Tyrite Sanctum --> 1x Forest
- Jund Panorama --> 1x Forest
- Naya Panorama --> 1x Forest
Good luck with your deck.
