A mana ability is described as [cost]:[add mana to your mana pool]. This is typically seen on cards like Llanowar Elves where the ability is [cost - tap]:[add to your mana pool.]

Lethal Vapors is just a standard activated ability. The cost is , meaning that you pay zero mana to activate the ability making it effectively free (technically there is still a cost involved). No mana is generated in any way from the ability.

Serum Visions is probably better than Anticipate. You could also put some Dispel in the mainboard since Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, Path to Exile, etc all make your combo sad.

Also, another four-of mana elf might be better than Kiora's Follower; how about Llanowar Elves? That way they get buffed by your Archdruid, plus they're one less mana.

Maybe Collected Company to help search up your combo, you could run the deck like the currently popular Abzan Company combo? :)

I'm so-so. I like modern, but modern also is boring to some degree. I guess we'll have to see how much work they put into Standard now. KTK/FRF/DTK/ORI/BFZ/OGW must have been one of the most obnoxious standards in a long while. A blue 0/2 being the best creature and a green 4-mana spell the best instant, with a pseudo-combo deck being the best deck because no proper graveyard hate exists just feels wrong. I just didn't enjoy it. But with whatever they do, they go along and take the most fun cards from every colour because they say it's too strong for standard. The say they can't print Inquisition of Kozilek or Lightning Strike or Llanowar Elves or Wrath of God or Mana Leak because it's too strong? if you just take every colour's best cards, you even them out whilst creating a lackluster format. We'll see how it goes, I'm just not a big Standard fan and I don't think showing Modern because it's a big clusterfuck of Sideboard and Tech isn't reasonable. It's not like PT Shadows wasn't a big metacall. The fact that every deck rand a bunch of Languish is just a massive Meta call.

Truth be told though, as long as limited stays part of the Pro Tour, I don't really mind.

It seems you are fairly new to this and yeah there is definitely a few problems with this deck

Commander Choice: Your commander itself isn't overly strong I would go with Rafiq of the Many over it if you want to keep the same colours. If that isn't an option Treva works quite well with a lot of enchantments as it allows it's ability to gain you a lot of health whenever you deal damage.

Card Count: You are missing 2 cards commander decks should be 100 cards in size

Mana Problems: I would cut down on that land count (around 36 is good) and add non basic lands like Prairie Stream and Canopy Vista try to stay away from lands that enter tapped like Tranquil Cove and Skyline Cascade. Azorius Chancery is okay though as it gives you 2 mana.

Artifact ramp: Things like Sol Ring and Thran Dynamo or even Gilded Lotus. Definitely consider mana fixing artifacts such as Chromatic Lantern, Selesnya Signet and Azorius Signet

Sorcery ramp: Your commander colours allow you a great opportunity to use cards such as Cultivate

Creature ramp: Mana dorks are usually weaker less mana expensive creatures but they can tap for mana helping bring out larger creatures faster. Things like Birds of Paradise and Llanowar Elves

Creatures: Sure adding large creatures with a large mana cost with heaps of damage is fun but in a game of commander most people will be running cards such as Path to Exile which will immediately remove these huge threats instantly.So what you want to be doing is keeping these creatures safe with enchantments, sorceries and instants.

Enchantments: The commander colours allow for a great selection of enchantments. Things like Mirari's Wake for mana, Rhystic Study and Enchantress's Presence for card draw, Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety to keep you and your creatures safe, Sigil of the Empty Throne and Luminarch Ascension for extra creatures.

So in short I would consider taking out some of you more mana expensive creatures, put in mana ramp, use your commanders ability with enchantments out to gain life while doing damage to other other players, while hopefully keeping your larger hitters alive in the mean time. :)

These guys are kind of low-powered for commander, I'd look for alternatives:
-Abzan Kin-Guard
-Militant Inquisitor (you have 4 equipment)
-Topan Freeblade
-Stormrider Rig

There's not enough draw power I feel to justify all of these in the deck together (just stick with Reliquary Tower for this effect):
-Library of Leng
-Spellbook
-Venser's Journal

Volrath's Stronghold is illegal in this deck (it has black color identity). The closest thing I can think of you can use is Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

I'd look these up for additions to start with:
-Citanul Flute: you have a lot of strong low-cost creatures like Thalia's Lieutenant
-Ulvenwald Mysteries
-Slate of Ancestry

Consider swapping out one of the Llanowar Elves variants for Avacyn's Pilgrim, too.

I think the deck needs more high-powered threats, but that's all I could think of off the top of my head.

I would swap either your Llanowar Elves or your Elvish Mystic for an Arbor Elf and then replace some Forest with a few Llanowar Reborn or Fertile Thicket

If you're looking to speed up this deck, you'll want more early drop ramp, like Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic. Also, what is your focus on how this deck is supposed to win? Beating face with big creatures? Commander damage? How does your commander help with this strategy? Once you answer those questions, the changes to make to your deck become easier, as you focus on your main strategy. If your commander does not support your strategy, it may be time for a different commander. If you want to focus on your commander, then choose cards that support him primarily.

And Archetype of Endurance seems great in this deck.
