I really like the concept of this deck. I have a few things that combine deathtouch and trample, but no all-deathtouch decks. That may need to change. :-) Evasion, such as flying and fear are nice to include in the mix, as you have. After all, the opponent may be running some deathtouch too. Your Viridian Longbow and Nature's Way go a long way to cover that base as well. Still, there's nothing like trample for a deathtoucher, as it lets you kill another critter along the way, and even against an indestructible blocker, it lets you deliver all but one power to the face or to take out several blockers if they want to line 'em up like dominos for ya.

That said, I'd try to find a place for more trample action, either in the critters themselves or in the buffs.
Some stuff I've found useful in your deck's colors:
Rabid Bite - Similar to Nature's Way but not quite as good
Larger Than Life , Wildsize - Trample + Buff
Bow of Nylea - More useful if you don't already have all deathtouchers
Champion of Lambholt , Overrun , Prowler's Helm , Rogue's Passage , Whispersilk Cloak - Evasion
Deadly Recluse - Another deathtouching early blocker, but this one has reach.
Ambush Viper - So sweet when they don't see it coming

First strike is also really nice in a deathtoucher, but if you try to have everything, it dilutes a deck too much.
Or can you . . . ? Chariot of Victory - First Strike + Trample + Haste and reusable

For some more fun and games with deathtouch, check out my Death-Ray Infect (B/R). Nothing quite like giving deathtouch to a Goblin Sharpshooter . Bwa Ha Haaaa! ;-)

I think you should consider running Beast Within along with Terastodon , as they are both upgrades over your current removal spells. I think you should consider adding Emerald Medallion to help smooth out the curve a bit more. If it were me, I think I'd consider taking out Bow of Nylea ...yeah, it gives deathtouch, but you've got creatures that are big enough to kill just about anything, anyways. It might be a slot better suited for Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. I'd run Rishkar's Expertise over Shamanic Revelation , and Shamanic Revelation over Hunter's Prowess . Crop Rotation , Hour of Promise , and Tempt with Discovery are all spells that can help you get to Reliquary Tower .

Looks like a fun deck full of fatties, for sure!

Bow of Nylea is wonderful with elves.... also suggest Llanowar Reborn, Joraga Warcaller and Ezuri, Renegade Leader.

9-lives, No offence taken, but I'd like to understand why you don't like my demo deck? It plays to the plan you want, but in a way which is resilient, I'm fairly sure if the deck didn't work captainamerica wouldn't of liked it. I spend a fair amount of time helping other players build decks, I'm frequently in TappedOut's top ten helpers and I've been playing Magic for more than 20 years... I'm not trying to make you play like a spike, but at the same time Modern is a turn four format. What that means is you need to be in a position to win on turn four or five, otherwise you lose. At present midrange decks simply can't compete with the speed of others...

Answer me this, you have seen my Modern deck Power 4 is Ferocious, can you deal with 2x turn 1 Hollow One or a turn 2 lifelink, flying, double strike Soulflayer? This isn't an edge case on turn 3-4 tron (3 lands Urza's Tower being 1) decks can play Karn Liberated or Wurmcoil Engine. Burn decks have already come close to killing you, and control has you locked out in one way or another. Then there is infect a surprisingly cheap deck, and it only need 10 damage to and an opponent, for reference Blighted Agent. You can't have an answer to everything, and decks which try are called toolboxes, which from what I can tell doesn't appeal to you. Still, I'll cover it anyway, toolbox decks use Eldritch Evolution and Collected Company, mostly because Birthing Pod is modern banned...

Molding your deck around your opponent is a poor plan in general and certainly not something to fixate on. I have a borderline ridiculous casual deck The best cost is free which relies on me exiling cards from my hand to do things. Or how about a deck that is mostly 0 cost artifacts Cheap & Cherio, this only has 15 land, yet it can win. Modern is a format with over 12,000 unique cards and I have no idea how many ways to win, you can't plan for everything.

as an experiment, don't look at values, give me an honest evaluation of these 5 cards:

Vampire Nighthawk aggressive creature, kill spell.

Dissipate counterspell, exile answer.

Bow of Nylea toolbox, passive gain.

Guttersnipe burn with a body.

Ghostway blink, re-trigger enters the battlefield.

I like the elvish tribal that you're going for and ramping into the hydras/Hangarback Walker which make more tokens + experience counters but I feel like your deck needs more evasion/trample/haste to really hit home or even protect yourself from flying commanders. Maybe Akroma's Memorial? It follows the decentralized power mechanic, and I doubt you'll be short of mana late game.Ezuri, Renegade Leader can give be a finisher and give trample to elves. Herald of Secret Streams is also redonk with this deck.

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard would be great in this low costing deck. Not only he would contribute to Ezuri's experience but he can bring friends. Only thing is he isn't an elf.

Paradoxical Outcome would come in handy if there's a board wipe, your dudes are pretty cheap, so you can get the ETB triggers counted all over again. It's not great with +1/+1 counters but it's better than the creatures dying, and it can also be used on other nonland permanents. Alternatively, Inspiring Call is a less protective Heroic Intervention but the draws can get insane. It's a bit "win-more" though.

Bramble Sovereign looks like it has some potential here, doubling your own dudes (and ETB triggers). Although, he can't copy the X costing creatures successfully.

Bow of Nylea seems like a great choice for connecting with the damage (giving your attackers deathtouch) and can also spread some +1/+1 counters if you have spare mana.

Pelt Collector is a great turn 1 drop. Beast Whisperer does everything you want.

Animation Module is a great accelerator and can be used as a mana sink.
