Hey, nice version, but the manabase hasn't been as upgraded as much as the rest of the deck, you forgot Command Tower.
Because you have Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger do you really need lots of other big creatures? Most creature board wipes are good with Eggs because even if Atla will die to the wipe she will trigger for each Egg that also dies. All your opponents creatures die and you're left with a battlefield of creatures from Eggs. Avacyn and Ulamog have indestructible making them survive board wipes that destroy or do damage.
Vanquish the Horde and Blasphemous Act are powerful creature board wipes in multiplayer Commander because they care about the number of all creatures from all players on the battlefield. Wrath of God and Day of Judgment are the traditional four mana ones and Austere Command is very versatile. Fanatical Devotion is a nice budget sac outlet for Eggs since it can protect Atla from most board wipes.
Consider more ramps sources especially two drop or less ramp that's not creatures can help with Atla?
The manabase here has a few good lands (Mesa, Orchard, Glade, Shrine, Panorama), but most are subpar for much lower budget decks. Temple of the False God is a not a good land; my advice is cut it from all your decks even decks with green which have land ramp. Needing five lands just for Temple to be able to make mana isn't worth it. The Life lands such as Blossoming Sands, etc. are lackluster since 1 life gain is not worth the land always ETB tapped. If you're on a budget for lands then consider these for upgrades?
- Command Tower
- High Market: sac outlet.
- Battlefield Forge
- Canopy Vista
- Overgrown Farmland
- Path of Ancestry
- Game Trail
- Fortified Village
- Furycalm Snarl
- Alpine Meadow
- Sungrass Prairie
- Mossfire Valley
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God
- Ancient Ziggurat
- Blossoming Sands
- Kazandu Refuge
- Rugged Highlands
- Slagwoods Bridge
- Thornglint Bridge
- Wind-Scarred Crag
- Arctic Treeline
- Highland Forest
- Sudden Disappearance
- Soul Foundry
- Dictate of Heliod
- Brood Monitor
- Guild Feud
- Ulamog's Crusher
- Breaker of Armies
- Gruul Ragebeast
- Dreamstone Hedron
Good luck with your deck.

It's an interesting card and has parallels to Soul Foundry except you have to pay twice for the creature you cast to get the first token.
Perhaps it could be considered to have the creature spell you exile create a token as well? So if someone blows up the Soul Chamber you haven't been 2-for-1'ed?
"Whenever you cast a creature spell, you may exile it with a Soul counter on it and copy the spell. (The copy becomes a token.)
: Copy a creature card you own exiled with a Soul counter on it. You may cast the copy."
This means you still get the original creature you cast so you wont kneecap your tempo nor set yourself up for getting 2-for-1'ed for nothing. The first cast keeps the option to get countered (well the token copy at least). The copy and cast also means you have to pay any additional costs and can utilize optional additional costs (like kicker) and even alternative costs - since you don't cast the copy without paying its mana cost. Paying the costs during resolution of the ability also means you cannot get Trickbind'ed as if it was a Counterspell and you first pick what to copy on resolution. Also it looks a bit cleaner.
An alternative Show
, pay 4 life: Exile a creature card from your hand and put a Soul counter on it.
: Copy a creature card you own exiled with a Soul counter on it. You may cast the copy.

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.
Token clone makers
Stolen Identity Blade of Selves Mirror Mockery Zndrsplt's Judgment Repudiate / Replicate Hour of Eternity Supplant Form Dance of Many Minion Reflector Bramble Sovereign Progenitor Mimic Anointed Procession Quasiduplicate Rhys the Redeemed Back from the Brink Dual Nature Mimic Vat Rite of Replication Song of the Worldsoul Helm of the Host Doubling Season Parallel Lives Battle for Bretagard Mechanized Production Orvar, the All-Form Prototype Portal Saheeli, the Gifted Saheeli's Artistry Seance Second Harvest Soul Foundry Spitting Image Splinter Twin Replication Technique Saheeli Rai Mirror March Mirrorworks Molten Echoes Mythos of Illuna Sublime Epiphany Flamerush Rider Felhide Spiritbinder Littjara Mirrorlake God-Pharaoh's Gift Hofri Ghostforge Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Followed Footsteps Nightmare Shepherd Osgir, the Reconstructor Echo Storm Cackling Counterpart Esika's Chariot Feldon of the Third Path Flameshadow Conjuring Trickster's Talisman & of course anything with populate.
Also some other blink type cards:
Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

I took out Doubling Cube and Mana Echoes because they got really expensive but damn they can give you mana. A token creator with Mana Echoes can easily give you over 100 mana. Wow, nm, they both dropped in price to "reasonable"
https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/xxx-gruuls-gone-wild-1/ is my Meanderer deck. (Sorry I'm sick and I suck at links at the best of times)

Multiple Chatterfangs is genius sir. Could you put him into a Soul Foundry ?

Thank you for the awesome suggestions griffstick. I really like Wolfcaller's Howl and Fresh Meat . Similarly, I have a copy of Caller of the Claw , but kept it on my maybe board since it only checks for non-token. Soul Foundry is cool too, kinda like a more proactive Mimic Vat .
I think I tend to avoid cards that rely too much on checking for greatest power on my board. In my play-testing, most of my creatures are usually 1-3 power, until I start getting into the 6cmc stuff like Avenger of Zendikar and the like.

Oh and Fresh Meat because there is nothing better than someone wiping the board and you coming out of it better than you were before
