I have just made some major changes to this deck; for the first time ever, I have changed the general of this deck, replacing Uril, the Miststalker with Marath, Will of the Wild, because, while Uril was certainly an excellent general, it did not match the theme of this deck, which contained a mere six auras, whereas Marath does, and, upon making that change, I have decided to further emphasize this deck's theme of +1/+1 counters, specifically, by replacing Armadillo Cloak, Bear Umbra, Runes of the Deus, Scourge of the Nobilis, Shield of the Oversoul, and Snake Umbra with All Will Be One, Cathars' Crusade, Warleader's Call, Fertilid, Kalonian Hydra, and Steelbane Hydra; I had contemplated putting Forgotten Ancient in this deck, but I was not able to find space for it, and I also wish to minimize overlap with or similarities between this deck and my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck, and, while this deck does not have quite as great of an emphasis on generating creature tokens as does my Ghired, Conclave Exile EDH deck, I still believe that it has a sufficient focus to justify the inclusion of Warleader's Call, which also has great synergy with Tamanoa. I also replaced Titanic Ultimatum with Pathbreaker Ibex, because the creature can use its ability repeatedly. I had considered putting Cabaretti Ascendancy into this deck, but I feel that this deck does not contain quite a sufficient number of creature cards to justify the inclusion of that card.

Overall, these changes reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 40.6 to 4.05, which is only a minimal change, but doing so also reduced the number of colored mana symbols in this deck, which is also a very good thing.

What does everyone else say about this? Do you believe that I did well with overhauling this deck?

Looks good. Personally I would make these swaps:

Second Breakfast -> Forgotten Ancient (allows you to use Lathiel's ability to essentially put counters on Lathiel himself, resulting in exponentially-increasing lifegain and counters, and also makes commander damage a more viable wincon)
Obscuring Haze -> Scrounging Bandar (same as above. also, fog effects like Obscuring Haze aren't needed since you gain so much life)
Felidar Retreat -> Light of Promise(not enough landfall support for Felidar Retreat. Light of Promise turns Lathiel into a major threat)
Tocasia's Welcome -> Hunter's Insight
Angelic Accord -> Sunbond(Sunbond is more impactful)
Elderscale Wurm -> Pathbreaker Ibex
Garruk Wildspeaker -> Gyre Sage
Rampant Growth -> Prize Pig(Pig would be crazy here!)
Farseek -> Incubation Druid
Sanguine Sacrament -> Armorcraft Judge
Ajani, Caller of the Pride -> Cultivator of Blades

constructive feedback:

deck sucks. although there is room for improvement.

add more ramp. focus fast of ramp to get commander out as fast as possible. those cards are mostly in green. then maybe take out the cards that rely on other player. such as Taurean Mauler. although Forgotten Ancient is a great card. so keep it. Basilisk Collar isn't good because the deathtouch is pointless for a total of 3 mana unless you're chump blocking. But if you're having giant creatures with counters anyway it shouldn't matter add Swiftfoot Boots.

Hydras are a lot of fun. love that idea. deck could be a lot better if your creatures could get counters on them immediately. Rishkar, Peema Renegade is a great example. keep adding cards like that. But ramp is where you will get your speed.

Love human tribal, here are some cards I think would go well.

Victory's Envoy, putting the +1/+1 on your commander and all you creatures is equivalent to +2/+2 to all your creatures every turn!

Loran of the Third Path, this is one of the best political machines, make a friend at the table. Also doubles as some removal.

Orzhov Advokist, You put 2 counters on your commander every upkeep, and if any other player wants to put two counters on one of their creatures, no problem, they just aren't allowed to attack you for any entire turn, what a trade off!

Aragorn and Arwen, Wed, a card I haven't had the chance to playtest yet, but seems good.

Archetype of Courage, makes attacking into you unmanageable.

Forgotten Ancient, I know it isn't human, but holy crap a bunch of counters for your commander.

Tarrian's Soulcleaver, more counters for you commander, especially if your meta uses a lot of treasures!

My only other suggestion maybe to add more lands, and get some more ramps spells, you look a bit low in that area.

I really like a Hydra's Growth and Forgotten Ancient in my Kyler deck as well. Helps to make him, and everything, extra beefy.
