Very cool! Have you considered Avenger of Zendikar you have a fair ammount of plants and I feel like blightsteel does nothing in here. I would totally drop him in place for the avenger and maybe add a couple Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for the plant walue ;D

After some thought I'm going to throw in some of Tata's recommendations immediately. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Knight of the Reliquary are out. Fleetfoot Panther and Woodland Bellower are in.

Tata - Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a pet card. She was the first planeswalker I ever pulled out of a pack. She's not perfect for the deck, but she has been pretty good. Token generation isn't the worst, the pump is ok. She's pretty low threat so getting to her ult isn't as difficult as you would think (at least in my meta).

I've leaned out removal in this deck over the last few months. I have plenty of other decks that run more, and I wanted this deck to play a bit more aggressively and try to outpace everyone else. Beast Within is good enough for me atm. Generous Gift is great, but for now one instance of that type of removal is what I'm looking for. You're definitely right about Woodland Bellower though. I'll pick up a copy soon and look at getting it slotted.

Same goes for Fleetfoot Panther. That's one that I have sleeved and ready to put in. Just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Usually by the time I get either the lion or skyfisher out I've bounced them out enough to give me a huge lead. Redundancy is always nice. I might put him in soon and playtest having all three for a while. Thanks for the feedback!

Is Nissa, Voice of Zendikar really impactful aside from its Ultimate? And is that even realistic to reach?

No Generous Gift or Woodland Bellower?

Fleetfoot Panther seems like an auto-include along with Whitemane Lion and Kor Skyfisher.

+1 for the name alone, love it!
First thing I'd suggest is you up the number of lands you're running to somewhere in the 21-23 range. 16 lands makes it EXTREMELY unlikely that you'll be able to consistently hit your land drops - the only decks that run that few are burn decks with their most expensive spells costing 2 mana. If you want to even think about playing 4+ mana spells, you're going to want more lands.

Moving on to more targetted feedback - if you want to upgrade it, I think you'll need to pick a direction to move the deck in. Right now it's less of a deck and more of a pile of green and white cards (not meant to be a slam on you, that's how most people enter/re-enter the game). You've got some solid +1/+1 counters cards like Gyre Sage and Hardened Scaled, and you've got some solid lifegain-matters cards like Heliod, Glorybound Initiate, and Lone Rider. I'd recommend on honing in on one or both of those strategies, and replacing cards that don't work toward one or both of them (like Primal Druid and Moss Viper, just at a glance).
If you want to hone in on lifegain, you could look at Ajani's Pridemate and more Lone Rider  Flip. For a bit more money you could look at Dawn of Hope. Another step up in price gets you stuff like Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Archangel of Thune. And at the very top you could look at more Heliod, Sun-Crowned. To gain life you could look at Healer's Hawk, Ajani's Welcome, Revitalize, or Daxos, Blessed by the Sun.
If you want to hone in on counters, you could look at (I don't know this arhcetype quite as well so I can't give you price brackets, you'll have to check yourself) Animation Module, Stonecoil Serpent, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Tireless Tracker, Jadelight Ranger, Experiment One, Huatli's Raptor, Mowu, Loyal Companion, or Knight of Autumn. There's probably more excellent cards in that category as well, but like I said I don't know that archetype as well (I'm better versed in BLUE green counters).
You also don't really have much in the way of creature removal, which could prove dangerous. Selesnya Charm and Banishing Light are alright, but I'd up how many you're running if that's going to be your only removal. Declaration in Stone is a premium white removals spell you could look into if you're looking for upgrades in that department.

These are all just suggestions though - you should build and play the deck however you find it most fun. It is your deck, after all! Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

do you have a way to pump tokens? Dragonlair Spider is great for chump blocks, but becomes way better if you have stuff like Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or Cathars' Crusade.

I love sphinxes so I'm biased, but I think SoE is exactly the kind of card this deck wants -- politics win.

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:

Ramp:

Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.

Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route

Utility:

Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,

Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.

Counters:

Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.

Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

I have a Drove of Elves I'm not using

Thanks Twist35 some good input! I was definitely thinking about adding some Bojuka Bog I will probably replace the Howltooth Hollow 's. I agree some Explore type cards would be good since I don't have any ramp. The problem is I don't want to cut too many lands I want to have mostly lands and a few non lands. I might cut the Nissa's Triumph + Nissa, Voice of Zendikar package because it seems too slow and unlikely. I do think I don't need as many cycling lands. do you think Courser of Kruphix and Tireless Tracker would be good against aggro?
