This is a pretty solid list, but can be optimized even further!
Awakener Druid, Greenweaver Druid, Kaysa, Ley Druid, Mul Daya Channelers, Oracle of Mul Daya, and Paragon of Eternal Wilds are all too expensive for what they do (the mana dorks cost too much to cast and don't generate alot of mana, the pumpers all pump by miniscule amounts compared to Craterhoof and Beastmaster Ascension). I would cut them all for 1 mana druids (even if they have useless abilities.) Every 1 mana Druid is a haste Llanowar Elves, you should be running every single one possible since you want to win so fast. If you reduce the CMC further, you can run Collected Company.
The rule of thumb should be: #1: Run every 1 single mana druid. Thisin creases the variance on the number of "haste Llanowar Elves" you have and helps smooth out combo turns. #2: Run some 2 mana druids if they are amazing or generate more mana than a 1 mana druid would (like Hidden Herbalists, Devoted Druid, or Priest of Titania). #3: Only run 3 mana druids if they are insanely good (Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Harbinger).
You have 9 cards that benefit from recasting elves, so Wirewood Symbiote is a must. Symbiote + Reclamation Sage makes people cry.
You should be running Cloudstone Curio since there are almost as many if not more combos than Paradox Engine involving Curio loops. Glimpse of Nature plus two 1-mana druids = draw your entire deck. Throw in Hidden Herbalists as one of the druids in the Curio loop for infinite mana.
Elvish Spirit Guide should be another super fast mana accelerant.
You have 7 ways to tutor for Craterhoof Behemoth and lots of ways to draw large amounts of cards, so I would cut Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede and Triumph of the Hordes to make room for more slots since you're almost guaranteed to play Craterhoof every game. Reducing some instants/sorceries would start to put you in the range of running Primal Surge.
Final suggestions: Benefactor's Draught, Summoner's Pact, Survival of the Fittest, Creeping Renaissance, Seasons Past, Mana Reflection, Harvest Season, Collective Unconscious, Harmonize, Lead the Stampede, Wildest Dreams, Praetor's Counsel, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip

Nice deck! As a long time elf deck player I always thought this would be a fun commander. Repeated discard is very powerful and so is a steady stream of free tokens, seems great. Got a few ideas for you.. Elvish Guidance, Kaysa (who is also an elf), Geth's Grimoire, Cursed Rack, Slate of Ancestry, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, and Smokestack ;)

You might want cards to stop boardwipes, as attempting to repeatedly cast Progenitus from your command zone seems like an inefficient gameplan.
Saskia the Unyielding would provide a good alternate plan in your deck, as if Progenitus suffers an unfortunate fate you would still be able to wreck someone's face.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope would also provide another powerful alternate win condition and also give Progenitus ye old hexproof shroud combo.
As for cuts, Juniper Order Ranger seems a little iffy. Your deck doesn't really run enough +1/+1 counter cards for that to be efficient (Crusade, Nyssa, and Ancient are likely not enough). Mana Flare should replaced with Mana Reflection if you want a mana doubler. Meteorite doesn't seem very efficient for its cost. Kaysa is probably your worst anthem effect, considering cost and range. Glorious Anthem doesn't feel very impactful, especially when compared to alternate cards like Always Watching .
I love the deck though. Wish I could afford it :/

Since you want to be mainly creature centric and focused on elves, here are some suggestions:
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter - Cast your big Gorgons and bring a cheap elf along the way
Lifecrafter's Bestiary It fits your "creatures building upon creatures" theme as every elf you cast draws you a card
Wellwisher can net you tons of life
Since you are already running Mortal Combat, you could also run Epic Struggle as a win-con. Also Squall Line or Helix Pinnacle would be pretty funny ways to win with all of your mana producing elves in play.
If you want to be really mean to your friends I have seen Winter Orb used to great effect in elf decks due to all of the mana dorks.
