Ambush Commander and Rhonas's Monument both fit in well here.

Just a couple thoughts!

Maybe consider some of the following
Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip
Oath of Nissa <- I don't know the legality of playing multi coloured PW if your commander is green. If legal it opens up ANY PW unless they remove Oath.
Sylvan Advocate to go with Ambush Commander
Treetop Village

Thanks for the suggestions, I can see a lot of these helping in the deck... If I can find the space, of course. Eladamri, Lord of Leaves I have already decided is going to go in. I'm going to take out 2 Heritage Druids and 1 Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for 3 of those. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is an easy in, mono green means lots of devotion, especially with all of my 1 drops. Thousand-Year Elixir is neat, but it doesn't replace the Umbral Mantle and I can't find a space for it. Contested War Zone is honestly not very good. I won't need to pump the elves until I'm going for the kill, and I can't kill until I get the combo off. After I've comboed I will have a Kamahl, Fist of Krosa almost every time with the amount of drawing and tutor spells. Gaea's Cradle is too expensive for me lol, and to be honest I don't really need a ton more mana, because I will usually have either a) more mana than spells to cast, even before comboing, or b) comboed off and have infinite mana, I don't need more. Homeward Path not really prevalent in my meta, but a definite sideboard card if I ever come across one! Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is really good in theory if I actually used Krosa for his first ability. If I am ready to pump elves, I'm going to be swinging for the game, so I don't need manlands at that point. Also a +1/+1 counter on a land that's going to be buffed with +infinity/+infinity is somewhat redundant. Not worth the slowness of a land that comes in tapped imo. Yavimaya Hollow sounds awesome to keep my combo pieces alive, definitely going to put 1 in. Embodiment of Insight/Nature's Will both not very good since I'm only running 16 lands and also I combo off before turn 7 almost 100% of the time, (usually turn 4-5) so that's not a lot of use. Same goes for Ambush Commander. Sylvan Advocate Hey this a druid deck this-is-sparta kicks the manlands away. Skyshroud Poacher EASIEST ADDITION EVER. Allows me to tutor for combo pieces, as well as keep the combo going if I get some unlucky draws - love it!

Oh I see now. So here's some options I've devised:Eladamri, Lord of Leaves-Gives Shroud and Forestwalk Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx-Mana ramp until you get infinite mana Thousand-Year Elixir-Untaps your elves, and they get ability haste Contested War Zone-To make lands even more op Gaea's Cradle-To ramp EVEN MORE Homeward Path-For stealing decks, so you can prevent their stealing combos Oran-Rief, the Vastwood-Combos with Kamahl, Fist of Krosa Yavimaya Hollow-To Regenerate your creatures except against certain ones. Cavern of Souls-For cannot be countered effects. Embodiment of Insight/Nature's Will-To have tons of blockers and mana after attacking Ambush Commander-For 1 less mana, you get Kamahl, Fist of Krosa but they are elves Sylvan Advocate-Do I really have to explain? Skyshroud Poacher-So many ELVESSSS

In your budget Yisan deck, I was wondering if Ambush Commander would be a card to consider since it helps fuel Priest of Titania/Elvish Archdruid so you don't need both of them for infinite with GoG and Cat? This opens up the 2/3-drop slot for utility.
