There's also 38 cards in the game with "Proliferate" on them, like Evolution Sage, which can all put one loyalty counter on every planeswalker you control.

IMO, as a removal spell, Decimate is neither an instant or low-mana. It can certainly do a lot of damage to the board state, but I would much rather have a Beast Within, Generous Gift, or perhaps a Swords to Plowshares or a Path to Exile.
I think you might be going a little heavy on the ramp. In a green three color deck, especially if you have all your shock and fetch lands, having three signets and three talismans is probably overkill.
Given that Rhythm of the Wild is under the
ProtectMyBalls category, I'm assuming you're mostly using it for the
can't be countered effect. In which case, I would consider how many of your creatures you think opponents are going to actually counter. Take a look through your list of creatures, then list all the ones you yourself would counter if an opponent played it. Then think if its really worth making those not counterable instead of some other card. While there may be a few which you don't want to be counterable, also consider the order these cards need to be played and that you will need Rhythm of the Wild out before you play your big stuff. IMO the chances are too slim.
I think the most glaring change I would make is adding some more card draw. There is very little if any explicit card draw in this deck. Given that your commander makes 1/1's left and right, consider a Skullclamp. Also, IMO Esper Sentinel belongs in any white deck. Since you're making tokens very often, a Welcoming Vampire would work well here, and also an Idol of Oblivion.
Looks like the vast majority of your Good Boys And Good Girls are actually girls and not many boys. Is that intentional? Or are the cats in MTG just generally better or more abundant than the dogs?
Otherwise, be on the lookout for the usefulness of Second Harvest. I've personally removed that from at least one of my decks since I think its kinda a "win-more" card. For it to be actually really valuable you already need to have at least a few tokens out. But, I've definitely drawn that card when I don't have any tokens out and its screwed me over. Granted, your deck makes tokens quite easily, so this might be a good card for this deck. Just something to maybe watch out for.
Lastly, take a look at your deck's average CMC. Its relatively low but you might be able to trim it down a bit. It might help to consider the CMC of a given card vs the CMC of your commander. In general, I like to make that comparison since in-game, if I have a card in my hand that is 4 CMC and my commander is 4 CMC, I am more likely to play my commander, then next turn I want to either play something 5 CMC or multiple lesser CMCs. Also, at the beginning of the game, you want to increase the chances that you're drawing cards which you can play before your commander, otherwise you have wasted turns at the beginning.

I like the idea - this looks mostly like a jeskai control list to my eyes, and could reasonably be built to one of their slow win setups. All told, if you just look for flat upgrades you can take this a long way, especially if you tweak the focus a little.
I reccomend focusing budget on land upgrades - there are incredible budget spell options, but budget land options are far, far rarer. Grab whatever good lands rotate out of standard, replacing the taplands.
Dodging Path to Exile and Blood Moon type effects matter a lot, as do untapped lands in making decks run reliably - going to 5 basic lands instead of the guildgate isn't going to hurt more than the taplands and will help make sure you can counterspell on turn two. If you must stick with a tapland, Prairie Stream is cheap and can come in untapped, Irrigated Farmland has card draw and land types that matter, while Jwari Disruption Flip can catch someone out turn two in a land heavy hand.
Once you have an idea of how much budget you want to sink into lands the rest becomes easier to plot.
I'd look at Myth Realized instead of ugin's, as its a lot harder to kill, gives a turn 1 play, and likes all the noncreature spells in the list. I feel its the simplest 'flat upgrade' to the list.
Counterspell is a format staple, and does almost everything that mana leak does in this list.
If you want to use ionize and mindswipe, you want to run effects that care about damage dealt, or force your opponent to a low life total first. Paying an extra mana or two for their effects is a serious cost that needs payoff.
The aggressive version would be Delver of Secrets Flip style, a 'combo' version where you tick up Quest for Pure Flame is an option, as is an Aria of Flame type 'slow' wincon (which would also serve as backup creature removal).
On the note of creature removal, you are a little light. Jeskai control often ran Lightning Helix just so it doesn't die to people playing Goblin Guide on turn one. You might not want it maindeck, but planning out a 15 card sideboard should give you space to grab answers like that - with your maindeck answering combo with rule of law and control with a mirror match, you have a lot of space in the side for aggro answers.

what about Baffling End as far as creatures removals go?
you don't really care about a 3/3 trample, not with the beasts you usually have down, and it removes any pesky ability they might have...but only CMC 3 or less. it also costs 2 instead of 1. the only other option (apart from Path to Exile) is Portable Hole, which also targets cmc 2 or less..

I'd also add that you have great artifact and enchantment-based removal like Darksteel Mutation and Imprisoned in the Moon. I've found this super powerful in my Tuvasa enchantress deck, and prefer it to spell removal in the case of all but the most efficient cards (such as Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile). These are especially good when you can use them at instant speed, which you can here with Leyline of Anticipation and Vedalken Orrery. One that I'd recommend that works even without these out is Stasis Snare, as you can flash it out at instant speed. I'd also add Coastal Piracy as a replacement for one of your less impactful draw spells. I'd personally replace Windfall unless you are running it to disrupt your opponents' tutoring, in which case it makes sense to keep it in. If you are just using it as a draw spell though, something like Piracy would be a good replacement.
This looks like a great deck and I look forward to hearing how you destroy your opponents with it!

I find a lack of Blind Obedience quite interesting. You seem to run Authority of the Consuls, which is similar if a slightly edited variant of BO without the artifact hate, but having the consistency to not make Concordant Crossroads nearly as symmetrical seems important.
Nature's Chosen is a beast with Cloudstone Curio loops and can oftentimes be looped to untap Sanctum Weaver or other mana producing effects very easily in a way that wins much quicker than Crossroads loops and often not need as many pieces nor as risky of effects.
Green Sun's Zenith seems quite better than Sylvan Tutor, and can be looped to allow you to never deck yourself in the case of Argothian Enchantress or Setessan Champion which is also great utility worst case.
Regrowth doesn't make much sense to me here, your deck has multiple pieces of hate for this card and little to no utility with it.
Song of the Dryads seems like a better variant on Beast Within or Darksteel Mutation combined into one. Just an effect that is able to add enchantment types to your list and replace some of your non-enchantments with the only cost being sorcery speed and the additions being commander hate and card draw.
Krosan Grip, Beast Within, and Generous Gift all are quite expensive for the effects they give, Path to Exile as well seems a little off for this list. I'd try to use threats in the form of Seal of Cleansing/Seal of Primordium/Journey to Nowhere/Parallax Wave which are not only tutorable, Hall of Heliod's Generosity's recursion, etc. all works on them, and many of them support an Opalescence combo strategy, with two of them being infinite combos with it and the other two being able to stop a sweeper from killing your field by removing your own Opalescence.
Shapers' Sanctuary seems quite weak in my opinion, just feels low-value considering how few of your creatures can be targeted/would be targeted anyway given your abundance of shroud effects.
