I don't think Marwyn gets the credit she deserves. What's also nice is that the deck has multiple different ways to keep going without Marwyn. A couple suggestions:
Dwynen's Elite : cheap multiple elves to pump Marwyn quickly. Not needed but is pure value for 2 CMC. You get two 1/1 elves and Marwyn gets two +1/+1 counters. Also works well for bouncing back to your hand.
With infinite Mana:
Assault Formation : seems like a very odd inclusion. However, with the infinite or near infinite amounts of mana produced it becomes an insane pump spell for all our elves.
- Tap the Big Mana Tap Elf for big mana.
- Use Symbiote to untap the Big Mana Tap Elf and bounce the Random Elf.
- Tap the Big Mana Tap Elf for big mana again.
- Use Temur to bounce the Symbiote to your hand.
- Recast the Random Elf and the Symbiote then rinse and repeat.
If you want any more ideas you can look at my deck here: Nature AND Nurture with Marwyn

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will ramp you into the mana you need. It could also allow you to cast cards like Profane Command with a high value for X. Vampire Nighthawk is also a good budget option that can block and kill almost anything and gain you life while it's doing it.

are you really having trouble "getting" creatures out? or do you mean you have trouble "keeping" creatures out because your opponent has removal?
definitely take out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . its really just for mono colored decks. also, turn 8 is horrifically slow in modern.
get rid of the enchantments. in modern, 5 mana is too expensive for a card that doesn't have some sort of immediate impact on the game state.
Souls of the Faultless should be taken out since its not a vampire.

You can definitely run the deck without it, and growing rites will help. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx puts in work and gets the job done.

Interesting that you omitted Unbound Flourishing as it's basically the tribal hydra card.
Rishkar's Expertise would also fit very well in here.
Ulvenwald Tracker is one of the few repeatable creature removal cards in green.
Surrak, the Hunt Caller is a great haste enabler.
Giving your creatures flash is a great way to avoid board wipes and get the upper hand so I suggest including Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Vedalken Orrery , and Yeva, Nature's Herald . Alongside flash if you populate your deck with more instants than sorceries you can take advantage of a card like Veilstone Amulet which allows you deny your opponent spot removal and can still trigger Gargos.
Mono green has some of the most powerful, one sided ramp effects so I'm just going to list a ton. Some of these are upgrades to existing cards you have in the deck already and some you probably haven't considered yet. These are usually the cards I include first in every mono green deck.

abbatromebone RobBot Thanks for the additional feedback! I will definitely be looking at your suggestions and start making the tweaks as I’m able to afford it. Particularly I’ll work on getting rid of the Kabira Crossroads . Aside from Flagstones of Trokair , I do have at least one copy of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx I could probably work in as well, though I might need at least one other copy for better consistency. In any case, it seems I have my work cut out for me lol.
