Well hello there! I had way too much time on my hands, so here’s this. By the way, it’s all ordered best to worst. (:

Pay less to play more.

  • Circle of Dreams Druid is going to drop loads of mana, assuming you can pay the three green.
  • Fallaji Wayfarer is going to give all of your stuff (including your commander) convoke! Not all, but a lot.
  • Hamza, Guardian of Arashin is going to make a lot of your creatures cost a lot less.
  • Herald of War makes all of your humans dirt cheap if he gets counters. But, oh, what’s that? This deck loves making counters for creatures? Perfect.
  • Nissa's Expedition is just Cultivate but it potentially costs a lot less.
  • Gaea's Cradle is perfect if you have a small fortune laying around and you’re in need of mana.
I need more! More!!!

  • Bennie Bracks, Zoologist every time you make a token? So every turn? Alright, sick.
  • Ulvenwald Mysteries lets you investigate the murder of your entire army. A board wipe kills this deck, but this (plus loads of mana) could help bring it back.
  • Season of Growth lets you scry a lot, letting you look for pretty much whatever and just pull it out.
No, you’re not allowed to have that! Because I said so! Exile it! Now!

  • Devouring Light, Conclave Tribunal, Hour of Reckoning are all removal spells but if you’re on a mana budget with a lot of 1/1’s.
  • Elspeth Tirel is a board wipe, if you manage to keep her around for long enough. If that’s not what you need, though, she’s got plenty of utility otherwise.
  • Coordinated Barrage, Kabira Takedown  Flip, and Outflank aren’t super powerful, but can destroy pretty much anything that comes your way. If it’s not hexproofed, shrouded, or indestructible, it will be killed.
  • Devout Chaplain says “The power of Christ compels you! Begone!” but this time it actually works.
  • Sanctuary Lockdown lets you say “Not this combat phase, Satan,” and if you have enough mana, you can do that again and again and again. Plus, if you decide you can’t, then it’s still a big boy.
  • Kamahl's Will will destroy just about anything in sight and can give you extra attacking force, if you can manage a way to keep all of your lands safe.
Gotta keep your stuff safe, yeah?

  • Loxodon Hierarch is going to save your deck (which is very sensitive to board wipes) from a board wipe, judy once. Use wisely.
  • Scapegoat won’t save your tokens, but it will save everyone else, commander included.
  • Kindred Boon can slowly but surely make literally every creature you own indestructible.
  • Ephemeral Shields is extra protection that can easily be pulled out of your back pocket.
  • Basri's Lieutenant isn’t going to save your deck, but it will buy you time or give you a chance next turn at a kill, if the board wiper was low.
Make all of your stuff bigger!

Make more stuff! The theme of these suggestions is Give me more, if you couldn’t have guessed.

Might of the Masses is always fun in a creature deck, one green for a massive “Fuck you” at instant speed is great. Now here’s a bunch of Might of the Masses style cards.

I was looking for cards with the keyword “Human” and a million Gideon cards came up, so here’s all of the Gideon Planeswalkers. None of them are bad, per se, but all Gideon cards are not made equal.

  • Gideon, the Oathsworn just happens to slip and give all of your creatures an absurd number of counters. Not to mention the big body (noticing a pattern yet?) and the one-sided board wipe! He’s got a weird face again, sadly, pass.
  • Gideon, Champion of Justice is a board wipe and a big, bad creature all wrapped into one. 7/10, he can dominate me.
  • Gideon Jura can goad and destroy stuff. Perfect for removal and instigating fights when you know you’ll win. Not to mention the big scary 6/6 lurking beneath. Also a weird face, pass.
  • Gideon of the Trials reads “Fuck your biggest creature, he’s not going to do anything, and also, as long as I’m around, fuck you more.” Nothing crazy, but can definitely make you public enemy #1 for having an effect like that. Pretty normal face, but that ability makes him a dick. 3.4/10
  • Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is just some kid. Ignore him. This is a child, pass.
  • Gideon, Battle-Forged!? Where did you come from? Nothing super interesting here, but for one mana not bad. Weird face, pass.
  • Gideon, Martial Paragon can give buffs to all of your stuff, which is definitely not bad at all, and your opponents are automatically dead if he gets that ten ability off. That said, this Gideon can get it. 10/10.
  • Gideon Blackblade is eh. He’s okay. He can get it, though. 7/10.
  • Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can do some generic Gideon stuff. Make tokens, give buffs, be a 4/4. Eh. 6.7/10.
This is just stuff I couldn’t find a specific panel for, so yeah.

Your deck is pretty spotless, so unless some of these are direct upgrades or you know what you want to take out, then this is all I have for you here.

  • Thraben Doomsayer’s first ability can be easily beaten by other cards, and his second ability is mostly useless, since you’re pretty screwed at 5 HP either way.
  • Heron's Grace Champion Lifelink is cool, but not something you super need. It’d be worth it if it was permanent, but it’s not, so pass.
  • Maja, Bretagard Protector just feels a little expensive for such a lackluster ability, Idunno.
  • DrukenReaps on Lae'Zel Master Chef +1/+1 counters

    These are my recommended cuts-

    Ajani Unyielding, Elite Scaleguard, Elite Scaleguard, Herald of War, Kyler, Sigardian Emissary, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, and Heron's Grace Champion.

    Look for cards that cost 3 CMC or less to add. Good-Fortune Unicorn like KBK7101 said is solid. If you can get your average CMC to about 3 you should find the deck generally runs pretty quick. Try to keep the strategy synergistic and short too. You want creatures with +1/+1 counters so things that enter that way will be strongest for you.

    I like Heron's Grace Champion a lot, but it can't be hit off of coco, and that matters a lot to me. As a low curve deck, I'm okay with 2 copies just in my sideboard.

    How about Heron's Grace Champion ? I know it can’t be grabbed with Collected Company , but it functions similarly as a team buff effect, and helps race incredibly well.

    I would change out Heron's Grace Champion and Banisher Priest as they don't search or seem as critical as some of the others. Mikaeus, the Lunarch is kinda slow I would consider Ulvenwald Tracker as for its cost its kinda mean. You seems to have alot of + power/Toughness effects and without a reliable sacrifice outlet you may not get much use out of Mirror Entity , although Saffi Eriksdotter I think is still a VERY good add with Angel of Glory's Rise or Sun Titan and more so if you add Altar of Dementia for unlimited mill. Don't know how I missed this but Serra Ascendant , its on theme with the angels and is a scary one drop I would replace Hamlet Captain for it.

    I do not know your meta but I think a better swap for Spear of Heliod is Lifecrafter's Bestiary as it helps you power through rough games by helping to keep your hand full and filtering your draws.

    Also I forgot to mention this in my other comment, take all of the forests out and replace them with plains. There are some pretty intensive mana requirements like Knight of the White Orchid and Benalish Marshal that you can't afford to have any non-white sources in the deck. Also, Heron's Grace Champion is the only green card so it would be best to maybe have at most one forest if you really feel the need to.

    Ill look at each one and look for a better version of that card. Alpha Authority could be swapped for one of the sowrds.

    Architect of the Untamed is too slow that could be a Emerald Medallion instead

    Heron's Grace Champion is not that good here at all, i think Ambush Viper is better here. Surprise block and kill and ramp cause your cmdr

    Hoofprints of the Stag is a really bad card in this deck. Not good here. Spirit Bonds would serve great as a replacement.

    Myth Unbound will be a wasted card slot in this deck. Your cdr is indestructable. Its not going back to the command zone often enough , it could be Cathars' Crusade or Glimpse of Nature

    Nantuko Cultivator would be a lot cooler if it was comboed with Splendid Reclamation, change it for Arena Rector.

    Primitive Etchings not that good. Pair it up with Abundance it becomes really good. Eather take it out or add support for this card

    Prowler's Helm could be one of the swords

    Though Heron's Grace Champion seems strange to me, it sounds like a lot of fun, maybe I'll see how it works.
