It there are 4 Green vanilla creatures with a CMC of 1:

And a grand total of 1 colourless creature that fits these criteria:

If you were curious how to do the Gatherer search for vanillas, simply search Rules Text: NOT "A" "E" "I" "O" "U". That will eliminate any non-vanilla.

I can give you a couple thoughts at least.

-Quirion Ranger is very weak in this list- you've only got 4 Forests and Dryad Arbor. What this means is that most of the time, it's going to be a Willow Elf with occasional Maze of Ith effects.

-Natural Order is definitely where you want to be these days. Chaos Elves existed mostly to fight Miracles- a matchup that has dramatically improved since the Top ban.

-You've got 4 Crop Rotations, but really only 1 or 2 lands you'd want to fetch with it.

-Deathrite Shaman is definitely the best mana dork, but with 0 fetchlands to feed him with, he won't be more than a Norwood Ranger most of the time. Better to stick with old reliable for now.

-Your graveyard hate is way too slow in a format where BR Reanimator can go off turn 1 on the play.

-Abrupt Decay, while still a very, very good card, is less necessary in today's meta, and probably isn't needed as a 4-of anymore.

Keeping budget in mind, I'd make the following changes to your list.

-2 Quirion Ranger, -1 Crop Rotation, +3 Natural Order

(You definitely want Natural Order these days, and these cards are the weakest links in your current build)

-3 Deathrite Shaman, +3 Llanowar Elves

(will more reliably produce mana, at least until you've got fetchlands)

-2 Abrupt Decay, +2 Faerie Macabre

(uncounterable grave hate, usable when you're on the draw)

-1 Scavenging Ooze, +1 Bojuka Bog

(fetchable, instant speed grave hate, with Crop Rotation)

-2 Inquisition of Kozilek, +2 Duress

(diversifying gives your discard a bit more reach)

-1 Ramunap Excavator , +1 Progenitus

(the first snake dude wants a different kind of deck than this one, the other puts in a lot of work in the rougher matchups)

This looks great! There are a few things missing, though. You can't play Daybreak Ranger  Flipbecause the flip has red in it's identity, and you commander doesn't, so you need to find something to replace it.

I am also noticing a lot of vanilla/ish creatures ( E.G. Pygmy Allosaurus, Norwood Ranger, Elvish Ranger) and while you can play with those, you shouldcould swap those out for something with more utility.

Ranger's Guile is good and all, but if it is hexproof you are going after, Asceticism would work much better.

Turntimber Ranger seems to do nothing, seeing as it is the only Ally I can see.

Bombs like Avenger of Zendikar are excellent in EDH. Playing Boundless Realms after an Avenger is almost always a win.

Beastmaster Ascension would be excellent here, seeing as you want huge creatures.

Keep up the good work and remember that Edh is a slower format than modern. I enjoy seeing quality decks from people new to the format!
