You may want to consider Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf for your mana ramp. If you do want to travel down the combo lane, Aluren and Cloudstone Curio are there for you. Fathom Mage is great for card draw. Ivy Lane Denizen make a great Ezuri compliment. Inexorable Tide can become pretty crazy if left unchecked as well. While not in the 'competitive' vein, I'm proud of my Ezuri deck: Doctor Claw

So what would you recommend I cut? I do thing it could benefit from Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede, Echoing Courage, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord seems necessary, and I wasn't really thinking about how overwhelming Ivy Lane Denizen can be in this deck.
I also think I need to include Ashnod's Altar. I'm just bad at knowing what needs to go where. (Also, my commander does have a built in sac outlet on himself.)

Since you will be saccing tons of stuff Bloodbriar is a great addition to the deck as a low-cmc and synergistic card.
Ivy Lane Denizen for stacking counters, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord for a mass kill, Sprout Swarm for getting saprolings during your opponents turns and making your creatures pay for it, Night Soil for self explanatory reasons.
I think you need more sac outlets that hurt your opponent, because your 99 has overwhelming ratio of token engines against sac engines (except for the built-in sacs of the Thallids that is) or if saccing is just not your thing you might like either the green signature Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede or Echoing Courage to swarm and stomp.Skullbriar, the Walking Grave is also a great storm trooper.
And maybe a Naturalize?

So, I've been taking in all of these suggestions and trying to narrow things down as far as which cards I'd like in the deck. So, these are the cards I'm considering, how much of each, and why. From there, maybe you guys can help me narrow things down..?
2 Wren's Run Packmaster and 2 Howl of the Night Pack has been a good combo, allowing me to get a lot of deathtouch creatures to block with, or to to discourage enemies from attacking while I build up my elves.
2 Jagged-Scar Archers gets even better with more elves on the field. It'd be a great (and so far, only) defense against any flying, able to deal damage without taking any if needed.
2 Overwhelming Stampede. This. This has actually won me the game many times, giving all of my creatures a great temporary buff and trample, allowing my damage to actually go through.
4 Elvish Archdruid can give me a lot of mana to work with, with an added buff to all elves as well!
2 Ambush Commander pairs greatly with a lot of cards, getting a lot more tokens onto the field. The only 'danger' of this card is the enemy having a board wipe or taking out the lands otherwise, which has happened to me once or twice.
2 Wellwisher. One game, I had two of these out and reached about 100+ life. That was pretty fun.
2 Bramblewood Paragon gives a lot of creatures a good buff, as well as the all-important trample condition.
3 Elvish Promenade gives me a lot of tokens to work with, which helps for both blocking and building things up.
3 Elvish Mystic, 3 Llanowar Elves, and 2 Heritage Druid help greatly with accquiring mana; but with 4 Elvish Archdruid, I don't want too much of these cards, otherwise I'll have more than I need and less cards to actually cast from these guys.
2 Ezuri, Renegade Leader could provide me with both a nice buff and an easy way to regenerate creatures. Great card all-in-all for the cost.
2 Dwynen's Elite gets me another token when casting it. Pretty good, but a lot of other things also give me more tokens as well.
3 Elvish Visionary helps me with card draw, giving me a little more to work with.
Eladamri, Lord of Leaves is a great card, but it seems a little too expensive for my taste, heh.
So, this is my thought process so far as I try to narrow everything down. Thoughts, if any..?

All good! This deck is absolutely amazing in concept, by the way! I really love the interaction between the Commanders and Ivy Lane Denizen, for example. Well done! +1
