Sorry, but this is not possible as long as mate-terminal is GTK+2 app.

Surely, MATE now has GTK+3 build possibility, but it's not ready for 
production yet.
And even if we'd build mate-terminal against GTK+3 libs and GTK+3 VTE,
it still needs to depend on libmate-desktop-2-17 as it requires some
functions from it. That package absolutely has to be built with GTK+2
because almost all components of MATE desktop depend on it. And as you
probably know, it's not allowed to mix GTK+2 and GTK+3 libs in the same
executable - it will quit immediately after start.
