Elves loses a lot of explosiveness without the 1 cmc mana dorks; you really need to play them. Not only do they let you cast your bigger threats earlier, but they also let you flood the board with creatures faster, which works well with your payoffs ( Shaman of the Pack , Poison-Tip Archer , and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen benefit from large boards, Lys Alana Huntmaster benefits from having lots of mana to cast creatures).
Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , and Elves of Deep Shadow (to help out the black splash) are all inexpensive. I'd cut a mixture of Eyeblight's Ending , Prowess of the Fair , and Gilt-Leaf Ambush to make room for at least 10 of those cards. You can even cut 2 or 3 lands if you have 12 or so mana dorks--competitive Elves decks play 18 lands and still make enough mana to cast their entire hand by turn 3. I'd also recommend you play Elvish Visionary ; like Silvergill Adept in Merfolk, it's one of the cards that keeps the fuel pumping and is just really good in general.

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.
