Legendary Creature — Zombie God
Whenever you cast a creature spell, create a 4/4 black Zombie Warrior creature token with vigilance.
When God-Eternal Oketra is put into the graveyard or exile from the battlefield, you may put it into its owner's library third from the top.

God-Eternal Oketra Discussion
2 days ago
I have a couple suggestions for your consideration.
Thassa's Oracle provides an additional Lab Man effect that you can bounce back to hand when you are ready to win. It is also hard to interact with outside of counter magic. And if you want to get really competitive you could include Protean Hulk and Flash alongside it.
God-Eternal Oketra may be too slow, but she does offer a different avenue of attack (no pun intended :) ) for the deck.
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath provides lifegain, ramp, card draw and can come back over and over again
Lastly, you might consider a bit of graveyard hate since you are attempting to mill people out. Remorseful Cleric (already in your sideboard) and Scavenging Ooze are great creature options while Soul-Guide Lantern is a new great option from Theros.

With Kaya's Ghostform, the creature dying creates two triggers: Shpherd's trigger and Ghostform's trigger. Assuming you control both triggers, you can put them on the stack in whichever order you want, and the top one will resolve first.
If Kaya's Ghostform resolves first, it will return the creature to the battlefield under your control. Nightmare Shepherd will not be able to exile the creature at that point (it can't find the card in the graveyard, and the creature on the battlefield is a new game object with no memory of its previous existence), and no copy will be made.
If Nightmare Shepherd resolves first and you choose to exile the creature, you will get the copy. Kaya's Ghostform will not be able to find the card in the graveyard, and the card in exile is a new game object with no memory of its previous existence.
Ruling from Kaya's Ghostform:
- If the enchanted permanent is put into a graveyard or exile but leaves that zone before the last ability of Kaya’s Ghostform resolves, that card stays in its new zone, even if that zone is also a graveyard or exile. You don’t return it to the battlefield. (2019-05-03)
With the God-Eternals, such as God-Eternal Oketra, it's the same. Two triggers happen due to the creature dying. You can either exile it and make a copy with Nightmare Shepherd, or let its own trigger put it into its owner's library, but you can't do both, for the same reasons (zone-changes cause the card to become a new object and thus the other ability can't find it.)

This deck is awesome!! My suggestion would be to add in Archetype of Aggression. I personally don't like the signets because you're basically paying for one extra mana, so I'd replace that with Pearl Medallion since your deck is primarily white mana. I also prefer God-Eternal Oketra's ability over Oketra the True because it gives you stronger warriors and you don't have to pay mana for them.
Just my personal suggestions, but like I said, I think this deck is awesome!! I also think it's funny that you're using Hanweir Battlements without Hanweir Garrison because I'm currently doing the opposite in my Najeela deck lol.

Thank you both for your positive feedback :) I already have a few warrior creatures (Rhys the Redeemed, Archetype of Aggression, Neheb, the Eternal, & Najeela, the Blade-Blossom herself) and a couple of warrior generators (Secure the Wastes & God-Eternal Oketra). So I believe Najeela is the perfect fit for this particular deck. Again, thank you for the feedback and feel free to upvote.

Really like the feel and flavor of this build! My only suggestions would be as follows:
This really doesn't appear to be a 'spells' sort of build, only having 20 Instant/Sorcery cards, so both Primal Amulet Flip and Baral, Chief of Compliance feel a bit out of place. Maybe consider replacing them with whichever of these you like most: Undead Warchief, God-Eternal Oketra, Gisa and Geralf, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Fallen Shinobi, The Scarab God.
I believe Commander's Sphere is grossly overplayed and is a trap. If you really like the ability to draw a card (which seems like you'll be doing very well already) then maybe consider replacing it with either Mind Stone or Hedron Archive. If color fixing is of higher priority Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress or Gilded Lotus are great replacements.
As stated before, it seems as though drawing cards won't an issue. Plus having a yard full of goodies might be useful, so Dig Through Time may be a bit redundant if not a straight up non-bow. Replacing it with one of the unused creatures mentioned above may possibly be a better use for that card slot.
Hope these thoughts/suggestions help.

- Anointed Procession over the Doubling Season , mainly because it's two less mana, it doesn't give you the plus counters, but it does help you get those tokens faster.
- Prowling Serpopard - I just like it, un-counter-able creature that makes creatures un-counter-able. It's great, don't @ me.
Sandwurm Convergence - Late game Enchantment, blocks flyers and every turn gives you a 6/6 token? Seems to fit the theme I'd say.
- Divine Visitation - All tokens are 4/4/ angels that fly.
- Emmara, Soul of the Accord Cheap, whenever it's tapped gives you a cute token .

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.

Karametra is a good "beginner" one as she is extremely simple and straight forward. She's also fairly cheap as your deck wants to run basics.
Build around flicker effects and landfall. This will enable you to flash in and out multiple creatures, thus acquiring multiple lands per turn. Then, your landfall triggers over and over which gives you great value.
You'll also want to run God-Eternal Oketra for extra value, as well as a light Soul Sisters build to maintain high levels of life.
For wincons, since you have the mana available to you, go for things like Craterhoof Behemoth , Zetalpa, Primal Dawn and Martial Coup as a wrath that you recover from. Hydra Broodmaster is a wonderful manasink for this type of deck.
You may be tempted into a Genesis Wave . Don't. If you bring out 25 permanents and 1/2 are creatures, then you are hit with a wrath, you just spent 28 mana on nothing.
You can use Aetherflux Reservoir but I don't recommend it. Yes taking someone out instantly is amazing, but you also deal effectively 50 damage to yourself. Going from 64 to 14 is a terrible idea so I never suggest it, but it's an option others will throw out there.
