Natural End Discussion

A lot of your creatures seem haphazardly chosen. I think you should focus on creatures that synergize with lands, so things like Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Ulvenwald Hydra come immediately to mind. Landfall stuff like Rampaging Baloths is also strong too.
I would cut some of the weaker interaction like Natural End and Chaos Warp and leverage the fact that you can play the BEST removal spells in the format. Beast Within and Generous Gift are both excellent replaces to Chaos Warp, and Swords to Plowshares is much better than Unlicensed Disintegration .

I would cut the single-use pump spells like Giant Growth in order to fit more ramp. Farseek or Nature's Lore for Stomping Ground is a powerful turn 2 play. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , and Nissa's Pilgrimage are also very strong. I think your deck could also do with some 1cmc dorks like Birds of Paradise and Elvish Mystic .
I think your deck lacks spell that generate card advantage. Birthing Pod , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Guardian Project , Sylvan Library , Shamanic Revelation , Harmonize , Return of the Wildspeaker , Momentous Fall , and Life's Legacy are all examples of what I think your deck could benefit from.

Cards that I would cut:
Regeneration , Executioner's Hood , Natural End , Bladed Pinions , Revive , Nature's Spiral , Staff of the Wild Magus , Crashing Footfalls awesome if you can cheat the suspend on it, not worth it otherwise, Prodigious Growth , Feasting Troll King and Trail of Crumbs you lack enough of a food theme to run these well enough to include, Moldgraf Monstrosity the random return makes this lackluster, Jaddi Lifestrider , Soul of Zendikar the activation is kind of expensive, Tuinvale Treefolk doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion, Canopy Cover and Web auras not the best here, I'd cut one of Planewide Celebration or Once and Future , and finally, Sandsteppe Mastodon
No Sol Ring ? This a ban in local meta?
If you happen to own them, some cards that you may want to think about: Tendershoot Dryad , Beast Within , Inspiring Call and Garruk, Primal Hunter . Yes, that means more cutting but they should be worth it in this deck.

I can tell that you've mostly built from cards that you have sitting around from recent sets. That's fine, but there's a few things you should consider when building Radha.
First, you want to be putting out a lot of creatures, and quickly. That will allow you to make attacks the first turn she comes down and spiral out of control. To do that, you'll want token producers and cheap creatures. With only 25 creatures and very few token makers, you're unlikely to combo off with Aggravated Assault and Hellkite Charger . Also, you're weakening your cards like Guardian Project by running so few creatures.
Secondly, you'll want more lands. While your commander is a source of mana, you still want to be ramping and hitting your land drops between when you play her and when you go off. Casual EDH decks usually run between 37-40 lands, depending on the build, so I would go up at least 4 lands.
Thirdly, you'll want to reconsider some card choices that look powerful, but will have unintended consequences. Wildfire and Annihilation looks good on paper, but the table will turn on you for blowing up their lands, meaning you can't count on rebuilding after. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is powerful, but the table will IMMEDIATELY try to kill you, and rightfully so, when they see it, since the assumption will be that you're running infinite combos with him.
Finally, you'll just want to clean up some of the subpar card choices like Blossom Dryad , Raptor Hatchling , Natural End , etc. Check out the EDHREC page for Radha to see what others are playing in their decks. You can toggle to budget decks in the top right, so you can probably make huge improvements to the general card quality of your deck for $5-10, before you even consider adding the cards that will really make it tick. Good luck!

Spyglass, I like your ideas and I'll try your suggestions. Unfortunately, I'm trying a cheap deck and I can't use Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip or Snapcaster Mage. I like the idea to use the Dredge mechanics, and I'll try to use Stinkweed Imp. It's a nice defensive card and will help me a lot with the strategy. Furthermore, I'll try Living Lore and Spellweaver Helix. Lastly, I'll make a sideboard with Enchantment and Artifact hate, probably Naturalize or Natural End. Thanks for the suggestions.

After looking at your deck, this aggro approach seems very doable and nasty, but theres a handful of cards I see that just shouldn't be included. Nature's Spiral is just a worse Regrowth, so that's a start. I see with all of the artifact removal that stax is an issue for you. Bane of Progress is a great addition to solve this, but i would take out one of your removal spells for Nature's Claim. You don't care about their life gain when elves can smash for 100+ damage. Another great way to give a stax deck the middle finger is Creeping Corrosion. The card rarely hurts you and gives them a hell of a time. Krosan Grip is a fantastic card that also helps in this situation. For these 3 excuses to shit on rocks, I'd at least take out Sundering Vitae and Natural End. Nullmage Shepherd is a fantastic elf to throw in your deck to solve this issue as well. Hum of the Radix is also a fun little card for artifact decks that no one will expect you to drop. If you need enchantment removal, just throw in Back to Nature and you'll be fine. If you're having a hard time with killing creatures, run Taunting Elf, or just run it anyways if you can regenerate it and hit people for free every turn. Aluren will help your elfball rolling, and running Primal Rage will help make sure that even when Ezuri is gone that you get your damage through. Talara's Battalion was a cool card I experimented with in my deck, and it did quite a bit of damage. I would definitely include Marwyn for her beefy presence and massive mana ramp. Something like Predator's Rapport is just not useful, as gaining life tends to be some of the most useless magic cards unless you're running a deck that focuses on it. Instead I would try to tutor for a card like Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Nissa Revane, Wellwisher, or Essence Warden which help a lot more with solving this problem. Triumph of the Hordes is a great meme to drop on your opponents in a tough situation, as it gives you a nice little one shot, or at least eats through indestructibly and "prevent all damage" creatures. Most of the artifacts you run arent necessary, so I would just replace them with lands. While you have an extremely low mana curve, 28 lands is very dangerous with no rocks. Unless you add some very fancy $$$ rocks (which if you dont wanna drop 1k on artifacts), I would just run some more forests. Primal Order was a neat card I haven't seen in a while, and I think that can prove very useful in your deck if you're having a hard time getting through to other opponents running decks with multiple colors. If you want to stick with the aggro theme, I would add a Coat of Arms, since by the time you hit turn five you'll have about 4-5 elves, and this can turn 7 damage into 50. The risk of helping your opponents is worth it. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is actually insane in this deck, and if your opponent draws a card or two off of it, nobody is gonna care. She can give you a ridiculous amount of mana with Ezuri pumps and elves like Drove of Elves. Concordant Crossroads is an absolute necessity if your goal is aggro. This card hurts sometimes, especially if your opponent has a creature-heavy deck. The payoff is huge though when you drop mana dorks with haste or drop your hand on the field, tap your Priest of Titania for a crazy amount, and have Ezuri pummel everyone with your hasty elves. As for mana doublers, you can run whatever you'd like, although I would say you don't need any of them for the deck to work: they're just a waste of a turn. Over all the others, I would run Mana Reflection so that your elves can tap for double as well as anything else. Overall, this deck is pretty solid, and with a few tweaks it could be an unstoppable force! Let me know if you need any other suggestions on anything else (:

Remove Naturalize and add Natural End. Fits better with your theme. Consider Riot Control and Blunt the Assault for Fog effect and life gain. Alive / Well should be replaced with Congregate since it gets every creature in play.
