Which one?

Without a diagram, that's confusing.

When I grab a random isometric grid from the web, I put it as a background, and
it looks like I get 3 x-units to every 2 pov units for the new y' vector, and
it's half the height (angle of 36.87 deg)

That gets me a second row for the transform matrix of 2/3, 0.5, 0.
(magenta vector)

But that's as far as I can get without exact parameters.

You have a matrix transform AND a rotation - so maybe you need something
different than what I'm showing?
