Thanks Dredge4life. I've been helping people learn to play for a few years and EDH/Commander is my format of choice, so it was logical to build commander decks to teach people to play.
I prefer not to use tapped lands myself, but that's a good option. It's a nice upgrade. Personally I would keep Dread Statuary and instead replace a basic for Treetop Village. The Masked Admirers sub is perfect for what I was thinking. It's cheap, and a direct upgrade.

I love this concept. Good on you for introducing others to the world of Magic.

first wave of cuts: Unbridled Growth does literally nothing in mono-green, Prophetic Prism same reason, Karametra's Favor don't need. also anything that is giving you energy you dont need it. unless you have some pay off for energy there is no point in running those
things to add (this is a long list so obviously just pick things up as you can. also not all of this will fit in but this is all good stuff):Arbor Elf, Allosaurus Rider, Birchlore Rangers, Bow of Nylea, Cultivate, Devoted Druid, Drove of Elves, Druid of the Cowl, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Promenade, Elvish Vanguard, Everglove Courier, Explosive Vegetation, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Fyndhorn Elder, Gaea's Herald, Gladehart Cavalry, Glissa Sunseeker, Greatbow Doyen, Green Sun's Zenith, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heritage Druid, Harmonize, Hunting Triad, Immaculate Magistrate, Imperious Perfect, Joraga Treespeaker, Joraga Warcaller, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Bowmaster, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Masked Admirers, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Norwood Priestess, Nullmage Shepherd, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Priest of Titania, Realm Seekers, Reclamation Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Tajuru Preserver, Talara's Battalion, terrastodon, Thornweald Archer, Titania's Chosen, Viridian Shaman, Wellwisher, Wildslayer Elves, Winnower Patrol, Wirewood Elf, Wren's Run Packmaster, Yeva, Nature's Herald

yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.

I am currently running Rashmi, and as you have mentioned, cascade isn't very good in this deck. So I am looking for another cantrip creature. As of right now Masked Admirers, Nimble Innovator, and Shaman of Spring stand out. On other hand I could just add another bounce creature like Quickling

Even more cards! Just for more unntapping goodness there's Ornamental Courage, Bear Umbra, Burst of Strength (is just Dark Ritual or better with Selvala), Copperhorn Scout, Voyaging Satyr, Elder Druid, so many.
More draw power! Triumph of Ferocity, Harmonize, Garruk's Packleader, Masked Admirers, Elvish Visionary, Soul's Majesty. Maybe add Words of Wilding, Thought Vessel, Reliquary Tower, Elixir of Immortality or similar cards so you don't draw your library. I suppose an Eldrazi Titan would also be good if you draw too much and a good mana dump, I'm just reluctant to suggest running Eldrazi. Speaking of hated things in EDH, Tooth and Nail isn't broken if you don't just do a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Pestermite esque combo. Oh yeah, Chord of Calling, Summoner's Pact, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker and similar cards are useful.

Sphinx's Tutelage, Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, Dire Undercurrents, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, Horizon Chimera, Kithkin Mourncaller, Masked Admirers, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Psychosis Crawler, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Rhystic Study, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage are all amazing cards to think about :)

Agreed with your change, taking out Door; doesn't seem necessary.
Creeping Renaissance is pretty good. Aluren is a LOT of fun. Beast Within and Squall Line are both very useful for getting around Moat type effects including Glacial Chasm. That's also why I run one Ghost Quarter.
I tried to make my own list more aggressive mana-curve-wise, adding all the one-drop mana elves including Birchlore Rangers and Boreal Druid, as well as some aggressive elves like Skyshroud Elite and Wren's Run Vanquisher.
My reasoning around deckbuilding is to keep the majority of my elves under 4 mana and keep my wincons at 4+ mana, which include a lot of mana-doubling effects. This build makes it easier to come back from being boardwiped, makes it easier to hit 4 elves in one turn to get infinite mana with Priest of Titania + Umbral Mantle, makes it easy to have some straight aggressive hands that can win early without tricks, and makes the most out of Aluren.
I've taken out a lot of higher drops for this purpose, like Elvish Promenade, Masked Admirers, Oracle of Mul Daya and Nullmage Shepherd so I don't get clunky hands and always have things to do early on.
