Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen Discussion

Testing shows the following.
Steel Leaf Champion has yet to be worth his weight in this list.
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen works, but is slow for the mainboard. Its maybe sideboardable as a two-of, but requires further testing.

That's really awesome to hear that you modeled your deck after mine! Most "standard" Yisan decks run a fair amount of elves but I always thought it was fun to kick it up a notch. I don't feel I run enough to make things like Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Drove of Elves, or Imperious Perfect quite worth it, but it's nice to have elf synergy beyond Priest of Titania tapping for 2.
I have a Yeva, Nature's Herald but took her out early on. I was just never excited to see her in my hand. Flashing in fatties obviously has its perks though.
Yeah, Regrowth et al are great. Sometimes there are cards that one just wishes weren't singletons and recursion can help with that.

Bramblewood Paragon is such a sweet card - I, too, tried building an Elf Warrior Tribal - so far in the testing I've done I've found it to be too slow compared with other decks that offer similar aggro spells. Of course, I haven't completely given up hope that an Elf Warrior tribal build could be built that would make spells like the Paragon really shine.
One thing I noticed is that because it's an Elf build, there's this idea in the back of my mind that there will be plenty of mana. But there aren't any Elf Warrior mana dorks, so even a scary slew of 2CMC creatures doesn't really churn them out as fast as one might hope. To that end, I think taking up 4x slots for a 1CMC dork is probably worth the cost of bending the tribal theme. Rishkar, Peema Renegade also comes to mind as a potentially powerful and worthwhile 1-2x dork option.
Inspiring Call might be worth considering, too.

First thing I noticed is, right away, lack of dual-lands. I have a hard time believing you can get your hands on Gaea's Cradle but not a Temple Garden, Bountiful Promenade, Canopy Vista, Riftstone Portal, or even a Sunpetal Grove. There's also the classic Savannah, though that will run you some $$.
Another thing you might want to look into is making those elf tokens a force in their own right. A fun one from the new set, Divine Visitation might be something to look into. Also Trostani Discordant and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen are cards I can think of off the top of my head that would give them boosts. Intangible Virtue and Radiant Destiny are also excellent enchantments, giving them more P/T and vigilance.
Oh, and you can double your tokens even further with Anointed Procession. Just figured it was worth a mention.

I feel like besides Craterhoof Behemoth, you don't have any big creatures/spells. I would at least consider sideboarding some bigger threats, like Nissa Revane, or Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, and especially Deathrite Shaman, who even without black can be a force to reckon with, as it disrupts land destruction decks and black mill decks. Deathrite Shaman is not legal in Modern, but if you ever change the format of this deck, that would be helpful.

Expanding on whatLord_Olga mentioned there are more cards that could give you access to elf tokens to accelerate the win con.
Yeva, Nature's Herald | Prowess of the Fair | Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord | Nath of the Gilt-Leaf | Thornbow Archer
Joiner Adept | Essence Warden | Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen | Elves of Deep Shadow | Gnarlroot Trapper

I would start by cutting Woodweaver's Puzzleknot as your deck has no energy synergies. If gaining 3 to 6 life is your concern I would look to Feed the Clan or Life Goes On, but only one of these in the SB.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader is better than Managorger Hydra in an elf deck.
Thornbow Archer is a nice Janky card.
Elvish Archdruid is way better than Elvish Champion
Nissa, Worldwaker gives you a way to capitalize on the budget land list.
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen looks good as a one of.
4 copies of Fatal Push is unnecessary in Jund as there are SOOOO many removal cards in those colors. Even on a budget, Putrefy, Abrupt Decay, Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Cast Down, Dismember, Terminate.... The list goes on and on. Having a playset of any is generally wrong unless it's Bolt because it beats face.
