As it sits right now, you're completely open to removal and your CMC for the deck is nearly at 3 because of a few cards. In modern, you won't likely get those high cost cards out most of the time because your opponent will aggro your mana combo cards with removal or kill spells. So, you need a good back up strategy that can do a lot of damage without that heavy mana cost or combo reliance. Doing a solid Elf tribal here would help you out a lot, and you can keep Quillspike in the deck as a wincon with Rite of Consumption and Devoted Druid. You can just pump up Quillspike then use Rite of Consumption to deal lethal. If it doesn't work out and gets countered, the other Elves in the deck will still synergize and have a chance to win the game. Especially the Joraga Warcaller and Immaculate Magistrate combo. Then add Shaman of the Pack for a quick shot directly at the opponent. Imperious Perfect can help produce Elves and buffs them. Glissa, the Traitor can pretty much block ANYTHING because of her First Strike and Deathtouch combo. She can also be used to fetch artifacts from your graveyard, for instance.. say.. a Ratchet Bomb.

Rhys the Exiled, Beastcaller Savant, Bloom Tender, Imperious Perfect, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Elvish Champion, Elvish Piper, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Gaea's Herald, Immaculate Magistrate, Joiner Adept, Mul Daya Channelers, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Oracle of Mul Daya, and Fauna Shaman are all missing though! Seriously, you can't have an Elf deck without a few of these thrown in there. This is why I play Elf based EDH decks, I like them all too much to go without one. Haha. +1
I love Elf decks.

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

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.

Umbral Mantle would be perfect in this deck. 4 Elves and you generate infinite mana with Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, Wirewood Channeler, or Karametra's Acolyte. You can then use that mana to power absurd Genesis Waves, or Overruns with Ezuri, Renegade Leader. Staff of Domination does the same, but allows you infinite life and card draw at the same time with 5 Elves. I highly recommend running one of these cards because they're absurd.
Skyshroud Poacher should also probably be in here as he finds any Elf card you may want at the time, enabling strong synergies easily. Also, why are you running Timberwatch Elf but not Immaculate Magistrate, who puts the P/T on permanently? Magistrate has strong synergy with Joraga Warcaller, as well as Rishkar.
My wife actually used Ezuri as her Commander for some time, and having access to as many Overruns as you want in the Command zone is great. She switch her Commander to Yisan, the Wanderer Bard for consistency's sake, but she still basically has access to Ezuri from the Command zone lol.

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves may be problematic since you have cards like Immaculate Magistrate, Timberwatch Elf, Asceticism, Presence of Gond and more that all need targets, and since all elves have shroud, you can't target them.

maybe more elf interaction with Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Shaman of the Pack , Presence of Gond , Elvish Guidance , Rhys the Exiled , Immaculate Magistrate, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, and Argothian Elder <--- this guy gives you infinite mana if you have it out with Wirewood Lodge and Gaea's Cradle
I would do the switch above to replace awakening zone, retreat to kazandu, seek horizon, elvish mystic, can't think of 2 others
