a suggestion for pridemates; Trelasarra, Moon Dancer added benefit of scrying with each trigger. I also might suggest Vizier of Remedies and Devoted Druid for mana and with the inclusion of kitchen finks. finally Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Scurry Oak + any lifegain on etb is an infinite combo. I might suggest cutting leonin warleader because it has to both survive a turn and attack to gain you life, not to mention the fact that its a 4 drop. if you have the capacity to go lower to the ground i'd suggest it just because canlander often ends on turn 3-4. finally i'd suggest replacing some of those later drops with a bit more hand disruption, and add a Green Sun's Zenith (if only for a turn 1 dryad arbor) as well as a Gaea's Cradle. I would also suggest adding a Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose to your list, but there may be better 3 drop drainers that im not aware of.

Those are just some personal takes, but all in all I like your list!

I'm bad at card substitutions, so I'm going to toss a bunch of card suggestions at you and wish you good luck.
Gavony Township is a neat land that puts +1/+1 counters that your deck might like.
Hopeful Initiate lets you turn +1/+1 counters into removal, I dumped one into my Mikaeus, the Lunarch deck and I have high hopes for it. Same for Sigarda's Summons(but for different reasons).
Champion of Lambholt is super cool if you can get enough +1/+1 counters on her. Less blockers? Yes please.
Hamza, Guardian of Arashin seems pretty cool. Kind of like a GW Animar, Soul of Elements. I don't know if your deck has enough of a creature focus to make Hamza a good pay-off for you, but in theory it could be good.
Archangel of Thune does something very similar to your commander, but the price tag (~$21 USD) is a bit much. (and it goes infinite with Scurry Oak or Herd Baloth and an ETB lifegain card) It could be very strong in your deck.
Felidar Retreat is a lot like Retreat to Kazandu but it gives counters to everyone. Yeah, it's not the best for triggering Trelasarra's ability (unless you have an ETB lifegain out) but it could still be a viable option for your deck.
Devoted Druid is super cool in +1/+1 counter decks if you can feed it counters to cancel out the -1/-1 counters you're going to be putting on it.

Hello there!

I have a squirrel deck as well, which uses Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest as the commander, and it's terrifying. Not saying you should replace Chatterfang, but you should consider adding Mazirek to the 99. It really makes the deck sing. Plus, it goes infinite with Scurry Oak and a sac outlet.

Also, for Reznor31's question: I'm personally a big fan of Will-o'-the-Wisp. Including it in a deck is much like playing Fog Bank in a blue deck. There doesn't have to be a thematic reason for playing it, it's just a really good, cheap blocker. I don't want to speak for Dark-Tree, but figured that I would defend their choice.

Having said that, consider Spidersilk Armor as an alternative way to add flying defense, if you feel like you need that.

GrimlockVIII, I saw you had mentioned Scurry Oak, and was surprised to see no one mention that old combo of Ivy Lane Denizen + Scurry Oak . There’s all the tokens you’d ever need to abuse Junk Winder right there, although exactly how much more one would need after infinite tokens is a question for the ages.

Regarding Scurry Oak: You'd have to have increasingly large creatures enter if you wanted to consistently trigger it. Seems not worth the hustle.

Ah, I see. Yeah that makes sense. For some reason I thought there were way more cheap and viable spells that would help enable the Hero of Precinct One than there actually are.

I would take up the Bant suggestion if tri-color mana bases were cheaper to implement. As it stands, though, I can only do either Azorious or Simic colors.

Izzet also seems viable if I go with the Young Pyromancer and Saheeli spellslinger route.

What are your thoughts on Scurry Oak in a deck like this?
