You're a bit light on ways to interact with your opponent. If they play something, you don't have a good way to get it off the table. Reclamation Sage is an elf that can hit artifacts and enchantments and Lys Alana Scarblade, Gilt-Leaf Winnower are elves that can deal with creatures. I'd say removal spells, Hero's Downfall, Go for the Throat etc would also be good options as they can hit more creatures than the two other elves i mentioned.

Cool deck! If you're having trouble drawing into mana dorks, I would add some more Phyrexian Arena effects: things like Greed, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Ancient Craving, Altar's Reap, Ambition's Cost, Promise of Power, ad nauseum...I'm trying to find repeatable effects like Greed that aren't super-costly, but even those sorceries should be good. The life loss isn't good, but Rhys should help you recoup that life.

There's also some on-death draw triggers in cards like Deathreap Ritual, Grim Haruspex, Harvester of Souls...but those are more likely to not be Elves.

As for cards to replace with any of that, I think your weakest links might be Primordial Sage, Thornbow Archer, and some of your one-use removal (it's just a tad redundant to have Putrefy when you have repeatable effects with Glissa Sunseeker and Lys Alana Scarblade, for example). I don't know...the deck is pretty well tuned, so if you want to make changes then I guess you're at that annoying point where there are no longer obvious cuts to make.

Good luck brewing!

Lys Alana Scarblade is just so slow and doesn't progress your board, it never seems worth it to cast it unless you're out of cards, and then it's useless.

Move 1 Shaman of the Pack & Lys Alana Scarblade to Sideboard and replace with 2 Golgari Charm?
