Hunting Triad Discussion

This is a totally different take on Rhys from my first time around. I had been indiscriminate about the tokens I used in my original build. Here, I'm trying to make it more of an elf deck that is subordinated by tokens. I'm curious to see if Rhys' first activated ability can produce enough tokens to get threatening. It's definitely going to be a learning experience.
What does everyone running a Rhys elf ball deck think? Do you find you need more token production? I've got some other cards at the ready to include if needed, such as Dwynen's Elite, Hunting Triad, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Mercy Killing, Sylvan Offering. And because we've got a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck in our group, I've got Flourishing Defenses ready too.
If you're running more elf token production, what are you cutting to get those token spells in?

first wave of cuts: Unbridled Growth does literally nothing in mono-green, Prophetic Prism same reason, Karametra's Favor don't need. also anything that is giving you energy you dont need it. unless you have some pay off for energy there is no point in running those
things to add (this is a long list so obviously just pick things up as you can. also not all of this will fit in but this is all good stuff):Arbor Elf, Allosaurus Rider, Birchlore Rangers, Bow of Nylea, Cultivate, Devoted Druid, Drove of Elves, Druid of the Cowl, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Promenade, Elvish Vanguard, Everglove Courier, Explosive Vegetation, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Fyndhorn Elder, Gaea's Herald, Gladehart Cavalry, Glissa Sunseeker, Greatbow Doyen, Green Sun's Zenith, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heritage Druid, Harmonize, Hunting Triad, Immaculate Magistrate, Imperious Perfect, Joraga Treespeaker, Joraga Warcaller, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Bowmaster, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Masked Admirers, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Norwood Priestess, Nullmage Shepherd, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Priest of Titania, Realm Seekers, Reclamation Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Tajuru Preserver, Talara's Battalion, terrastodon, Thornweald Archer, Titania's Chosen, Viridian Shaman, Wellwisher, Wildslayer Elves, Winnower Patrol, Wirewood Elf, Wren's Run Packmaster, Yeva, Nature's Herald
(takes giant breath)
yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.

Im not sure if there are any Elf token generators, but I do know that you're missing a couple of good cards, such as Sylvan Offering And a lot of people typically go towards selensya's cards for the populate triggers with cards like Growing Ranks If money is not an issue, then get a Doubling Season or if moneys a little bit tight get a Primal Vigor instead. Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies are GREAT cards for ANY tribal deck. Other suggestions for cards are Lys Alana Huntmaster, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Promenade, Wirewood Symbiote, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Dwynen's Elite, Hunting Triad and finally Descendants' Path!!! I hope these help!

That's y i dont like them:
Drove of Elves: if u have a super big army u dont need 1 good elf. All that u need is to put +1+1 in ALL the elves...
Dwynen's Elite: yes is good, but useless after 1 turn
Elvish Champion: if the ennemy isn't green is not worth
Imperious Perfect add +1 in your deck
Kazandu Tuskcaller u don't need elephants... just elves. is too expensive to lvlup with a deck who could win in 5 turns
Nath of the Gilt-Leaf for 5 mana... really? when ull enter this card ull win the game...
Rhys the Redeemed $$$$$$$$$$ and, i think is not good. all your cards put tokens, u need to do something else
Shaman of the Pack this one is good in late game! but i recommend u to win with an attack and no by an abilitie, that's not an elf technique

Elves, 5 turns infinite / trample - 80$
U want infinite infinite/infinite elves with trample? Look my Elves deck.
I recommend u to take out: drove, dwynen, dwynen, champion, chosen, immaculate, kazandu, liss, nath, rys, shaman.
Parallel Lives is useless if u have infinite token ;)
That's my opinion.
Don't use black. Only green.

I recommend you to add:
Take out the:3 Elvish Champion is too situational. If u play vs a green deck is good, but if u dont... is not good.
2 Immaculate Magistrate is 2 expensive in mana for the effect. U don't need it
3 Joraga Warcaller I personally think that it's useless. The elves try to win in 5 turns, the joraga u will not be able to play it before that (with the kicker)
Consider this combo:
with Ezuri, Renegade Leader it's gg (that's y u dont need joraga)
Use 16 lands (u have 4 mystic, 4 llanowar, 4 archdruid and I recommend u 2 other elves that give mana... 18 is too much i think?)And i recommend u Pendelhaven

I meant to comment earlier when I posted on the Advertise thread. I see a few problems with the deck that are easily remedied, as elves is a large tribe.
Your mana curve is way, way too high. Not just for a Modern deck and because Elves relies on speed, but also because of the number of lands and mana dorks you're playing you're inviting mana screw.
Luckily, issue #1 can be remedied by dropping some of your more do-nothing or win-more cards in favor of cheaper elves. Cut all of your copies of Hunting Triad and Nissa Revane. Nissa just doesn't give you enough value. If you want a Nissa planeswalker, the Oath of the Gatewatch and Origins versions are better in this deck. Once you've cut Revane you can cut her two Chosen as well since they're so-so as elves on their own anyway.
Consider going up to 4 copies of Arbor Elf, Elvish Mystic and/or Llanowar Elves. Include 4 copies of Elvish Visionary.
If you have additional room, consider Elvish Champion.
