Jesus I thought yall had died haha.
On the real though this deck is cool as always. One improvement i can see is adding Blood Moon to the SB. Since you have dorks you should be able to drop it on turn 2 against Shadow decks and other greedy decks before they can do anything worthwhile. It also feels weird not seeing Joraga Treespeaker in a mono-green devotion deck. I remember experimenting with Devotion a while ago thanks to you guys, and I distinctly remember Treespeaker being incredibly fast. If i think of anything else ill be sure to tell you! Its nice to see some older people back on the site from when I used to use it more haha.

I will highlight a few cards which I think are not optimal for your Stax build:
- Doubling Season : Too expensive for what it does. It only gives you an extra token, which is not a big deal in the mid/endgame of the game when playing Stax. It's a card that does nothing the turn it comes into play, which is not threatening at all for your opponents
- Dosan the Falling Leaf : Im not fan of this card, since you suffer from it as well having 11 instants
- Joraga Treespeaker : Is too slow if you ask me. The levelup can only be played on sorcery speed and most of the time you want to use your mana to play other threats.
- Parallel Lives : Mainly the same as with Doubling Season. I feel it takes a place which can be used more efficiently.
Cards to consider:
- Abrupt Decay :Great and effective removal spell that can eliminate nearly any threat that you oppose. So diverse!
- Cursed Totem : In EDH it is a great Stax effect for stopping MANY commanders. The impact is great in multiplayer.
- Necropotence : A great draw spell that refills your hand like crazy...
- Golgari Signet : Easy include for ramp and color fixing.
Also the amount of lands seems too tight. To avoid mana screws, based on your decks cmc, I would at least suggest 32 lands as minimum.
Hope I am of help for you :-)

I have both of those cards. This deck is more creature based. I can easily search for them with Green Sun's Zenith and my other tutors. Most of the creatures tap for multiple mana. I want to have more creatures in order to maximize the use of Aura Shards. Protean Hulk also puts all the creatures into play. (optimally using Sneak Attack.)

Yeah, Ezuri is great ;)
How often do you actually use Imperious Perfect's ability? This seems like a deck that would rather get damage in than leave their creatures back. As I said, I prefer Joraga Warcaller. Some other good cards are Coat of Arms, which is a bit slow for competitive modern but I don't know how competitive this deck is meant to bee, and Joraga Treespeaker.

You have few enough blue cards that I would just go for BG with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf.
Here's my elves deck in case you want some more ideas:

List of suggestions:
Out- Lifespring Druid. In- Greenweaver Druid. There's also Fyndhorn Elder, Joraga Treespeaker, maybe more I can't think of at this time. More mana for the same slot, your mana fixing should be fine as is anyway. Drop Alloy Myr for Birds of Paradise (straight upgrade at 2 mana less), or Copper Myr which finishes your Silver/Copper grouping. Make Manalith Simic Signet, as at least Sphere and Cluestone have abilities. Ranger's Path without Breeding Pool is meh, use Sakura-Tribe Elder.
Recommended cuts- Dissipation Field, Jace, Crush of Tentickles, Aeon Chronicler (can do better for the slot than a marginal draw spell). Frees up 4 slots.
Reasoning behind cuts: Dissipation Field is kind of weak, and I'm often urged, when people play that card, to swing my ETB creatures at its controller just so I can do my ETB again. Also, it can't protect you from an alpha strike, unlike Propaganda. Unraveler is one of the worst of the Jaces, Crush is meh, Aeon Chronicler, while not bad (suspend for 1 gives a card plus a Rashmi trigger the following turn) may not be worth the slot right now.
Why did I suggest all of the mana curve cuts first? Because here's some big shit for you to do big things with:
Expropriate. I have a set, let me know if you want one.
Similarly, Blatant Thievery. You already have Mind's Dilation, which is straight up worse than Thievery (Dilation is random and requires it be out in order to gain advantage even if it can trigger Rashmi, whereas Thievery is a sure thing), so I don't think you're averse to 7 mana spells that use your opponent's stuff.
In Chronicler's spot, use Edric, Spymaster of Trest. You have a bunch of durdly little creatures that don't do anything once they ETB, this'll give you an avenue to use them after they're out, and provide a proper incentive for opponents to attack someone other than you. Similarly, Beastmaster Ascension is a quick and dirty way to win with a Birds of Paradise or Coiling Oracle. It's hilarious, and incredibly easy to trigger.
Consider: Dropping Dictate of Karametra (I don't like the idea of you ramping your opponents. You might double your mana to 10, but if you want to 'control' other players, giving them a total of 30 mana to collectively burn through hurts your atempts a lot) for Progenitor Mimic. Want more value out of your ETBs? He's your man. Draws cards better than Jace with Mulldrifter, works equally to Jace with Elvish Visionary or Coiling Oracle, tutors 3 and under dudes to board with Bellower, draws cards with Zegana (last known information will still give you the card draw even if you sac the token), etc., etc..
Bident of Thassa may be worth a look as well. Could probably drop Naturalize or something for it (you have enough artifact/enchantment hate. If it's really that bad, run Bane of Progress, but card drawing is the #1 priority in this format and Bident is a reasonable option).
