Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, choose one —
- Create a 2/2 white Cat Beast creature token.
- Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control. Those creatures gain vigilance until end of turn.

Running bounce lands and a Retreat to Coralhelm demands that you run more cards like Scaled Herbalist over Murasa Rootgrazer to make the loop work. I would suggest Walking Atlas as it works with any of your colors.
When you can afford to address your manabase you should absolutely buy the shocks lands that are Forest+ as you can grab them with both Ranger's Path and Skyshroud Claim. I'd recommend running both as ramp spells over Circuitous Route. There are the cheap duals from Kaldheim that are true duals (in that they also have two basic land types) but enter tapped. (An Amulet of Vigor fixes that though and allows you to tap your bounce lands before bouncing them as tapping a land doesn't use the stack) I'd also pick up a Field of the Dead when you can.
Cards like Zendikar's Roil and Felidar Retreat are great but a boardwipe is all an opponent needs to have to upset that win. I would suggest running something like Mass Hysteria or Concordant Crossroads to be able to get the damage in the same turn you can activate your combo. If those are out of budget for you I'd then suggest Fervor or Anger as alternatives.
As far as what to cut? Anything with low power level. Cards like Makindi Ox and Spitfire Lagac are definitely on the chopping block. I'd even run something like Ramunap Excavator over District Guide so I could abuse any utility land I'd have to sacrifice to use.

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.
Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.
Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
Banisher Priest is good.
Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.
Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.
Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.
Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.
Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.
Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.
From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gods Willing is good.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned
Also consider Sphere of Safety.
I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Have u thought about Felidar Retreat and Courser of Kruphix? I found this deck a bit too slow against aggro decks like burn so i opted for the courser or Druid Class but prefer the first. The retreat is a good finisher and i see too much 3 cost cards. These are only suggestions. Anyway for me it's a good deck

Hey, sweet deck. Let's take a look at win conditions and lands. I've identified a problem with your deck: You aggressively want to control the board with your 1-3 drops. While other players are playing 6 mana bombs every turn your are trying to eke out board advantage with 3 or 4 creatures a turn.
- You don't need board wipes in this deck, they actively go against your game-plan, and in no way help you win.
- Less removal in general. I counted 18 pieces of removal in your instants and sorceries. Keep Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, and Damn and get rid of the rest. You ARE the threat, if your deck is running slowly to the point that you feel like you need removal, you need better creatures.
As for lands, use this mana base.
- 1x Ancient Tomb
- 1x Arid Mesa
- 1x Blightstep Pathway Flip
- 1x Blood Crypt
- 1x Bloodstained Mire
- 1x Bojuka Bog
- 1x Boros Garrison
- 1x Brightclimb Pathway Flip
- 1x Buried Ruin
- 1x Command Tower
- 1x Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire
- 1x Godless Shrine
- 1x Marsh Flats
- 6x Mountain
- 1x Myriad Landscape
- 1x Needleverge Pathway Flip
- 1x Orzhov Basilica
- 4x Plains
- 1x Rakdos Carnarium
- 1x Sacred Foundry
- 1x Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
- 5x Swamp
How would I change your win condition...well you are trying to do knight tribal...

Fair Warning: Inexperienced Builder not suited for recommending swaps for a non-combo deck taking an unorthodox approach to a commander.
I'm just going to throw some ideas at you. I could see a deck like this turning in a few different directions, and some of these cards would work well with certain deck themes in mind.
Jetmir's Garden is another good land-fixing land at the cost of entering tapped.
Felidar Retreat for sustained value with landfall
Emrakul's Hatcher gives you 4 creature drops for a net 2 mana
Masked Vandal is a changeling plus targeted removal (not creatures)
White Sun's Zenith can give you a ton of cats all at once if you have the mana
Harrow if you want more ramp
Kindred Summons to get a ton of creatures on the board from your library. Works well with ETB effects
Battle Hymn for mana
Hornet Queen helps deal ward off opposing threats while also giving you 5 creature drops. You have plenty of instants and sorceries to do that in these colors, but this one combines the "creaturefall" theme with a defensive card.

That does sound tough since each of those tend to take a bit of time. You could get some payoff from Cleansing and Planar Birth to massively buff Ondu Greathorn or Retreat to Emeria, allowing you to only target your basic lands. Or even target only lands with a Balancing Act.
If you're going the landfall route, which may work if you add some more options like Boreas Charger if you've sacrificed your lands or Crucible of Worlds, Oreskos Explorer, Stoic Farmer, Eternal Dragon, Timeless Dragon or anything else with plainscycling. More buffing cards like Canyon Jerboa or Felidar Retreat could help with the subtheme, and as many options with landfall like Fearless Fledgling, Prowling Felidar, Emeria Angel, and Emeria Shepherd. The Shepherd is very strong recursion, though sadly doesn't target lands.
All in all, with the basic land angle there are a lot of options for landfall abilities in white, so may as well make use of those for a more immediate power buff than something slow like Elspeth, Sun's Champion.
