Creature — Elf Warrior
You may exile two green cards from your hand rather than pay Allosaurus Rider's mana cost.
Allosaurus Rider's power and toughness are each equal to 1 plus the number of lands you control.

I play 4 color (no green) midrange. Usually I play Grixis, but can't play without path to exile right now.
I want to see Manamorphose and Hogaak banned. Manamorphose is how we see Arclight Phoenix in play turn 2. and losing manamorphose wouldn't actually kill archetypes besides storm. It would bring looting decks into check, in my opinion. I do NOT want to see Ancient Stirrings , Allosaurus Rider , or Lotus Field banned. Ancient Stirrings decks have not caused problems recently. Yes, I see that Stirrings decks COULD take over the meta post-Hogaak, but out of fairness, we need to let them sin before punishing them. Neobrand and Twiddle Storm need to become tier 1 before you consider banning them. If they're not tier 1 then they're bad decks and don't matter.
I want to see stoneforge mystic unbanned. I certainly wouldn't mind Preordain, but hadn't considered it until OP suggested it. I don't think it will happen, but I want Splinter Twin back.
I predict Hogaak will be banned with no other changes. I give stoneforge 40/60, and will be shocked if something else is banned or unbanned. But someone from wizards (I think it was Maro) said Hogaak was a mistake. It's 100% getting banned.

Since you're playing Eldritch Evolution it's probably worth playing 1 Iona, Shield of Emeria for noncreature decks. Can't search it out with Neoform, but I'd say 4 Evolutions and Lootings is enough to allow you to get it when you need it.

ANemoAcids Simian Spirit Guide is super important because it allows us to cast Seismic Assault or Lightning Storm , but Manamorphose is definitely something we've considered! The issue I've found is it's a little awkward cantripping when you would like it to be in your hand to Exile to Allosaurus Rider .

Oops for some reason assumed Natural Order would be $200 apiece. Still at $20 it's at least cheap enough that I can imagine a world where 4 order + 1 Progenitus + 35 forests and elves could be both cheaper and more competitive that something that was trying to make Allosaurus Rider happen seeing as it requires multiples of so many parts. Kinda defeats the purpose of the thread tho lol.

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.
Don't forget also that Birthing Pod is still legal in that format and gives you a less weak to Force of Will alternative to EE that also works as an engine if the rest of your deck is derpy green creatures. The drawback being your payoff would have to be in the 8 cmc range which isn't the worst considering that includes Griselbrand , Craterhoof Behemoth , Tidespout Tyrant , Archetype of Endurance , Ashen Rider and Platinum Emperion (literally all the same payoffs as the format's primary reanimation deck -elesh norn).
Chancellor of the Tangle is a green mana source that pitches to Allosaurus Rider and can even be a payoff in a pinch and Chancellor of the Annex gives you a potential to go off turn 1 with the pregame trigger for backup and also can be a payoff sometimes.
Insist cantrips, pitches to rider and can even punish opponents who plan to "counter the payoff not the mana source".
I might add more suggestions if I think about them.

Hey Man, I love making decks and I'd be glad to help out! Here are some suggestions: First, try to see if you can get more unblockable creatures with relevant creature types. Usually these are rogues so that you can use Notorious Throng and faeries because many of them are rogues and you can use cards like Spellstutter Sprite which also counters spells. Some elves along with Eladamri, Lord of Leaves works too, though I know that's out of your budget. Some creatures I see you don't have are Nightveil Sprite, Triton Shorestalker, and Jhessian Infiltrator. Also shoutout to Trygon Predator which removes stuff as well and Faerie Conclave which is a land that can become a relevant creature, which is very handy in case you run into a lot of boardwipes. Beastmaster Ascension is another win condition you can throw in. Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa are redundant effects for edric. Beast Whisperer is also a good draw engine. You also might want to change some of your removal spells as well. Counters like Mana Leak aren't so good in commander. Besides other counter spells, you can also use Rapid Hybridization, Beast Within and Reality Shift and the downsides don't mean much when all your creatures have flying! I also found some cheap dual lands to consider: Yavimaya Coast, Temple of Mystery, Thornwood Falls, Alchemist's Refuge. Finally, In terms of cuts, in addition to slowly improving your unblockable creatures when possible, I would remove some cards that aren't so in tune with your game plan. How often are Mind Control and Allosaurus Rider going to be useful in your deck? Sorry for the wall of text. Hope this all helps!
