This is an awesome deck ..I dig what you are doing...I know Most of these aren't elves but here are my main thoughts... maybe Aggressive Mammoth for universal trample what's cooler than an elf army that has trample..Majestic Myriarch because your creature output is off the chain and it doubles the power..and an elfy suggestion Presence of Gond most notable when paired multi color ie Midnight Guard but over all might fit well with this deck. For counter fun via Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar add counters etc so as expensive and frankly overused as it is Doubling Season may be helpful though you did say budget...so my suggestion would be some of the hydras instead Primordial Hydra, Voracious Hydra, Hungering Hydra, Vastwood Hydra which let you play early or build up and the The Ozolith to keep the extra..As for PlanesWalkers Any of the Nissa's would help you out tremendously but the one I thought for sure you would have for sure was Nissa Revane...the only potential problems I see with this deck in general is its lack of flying and or reach / protection from flying...so might want a few spiders etc Watcher in the Web is particularly gnarly and Arboreal Grazer has the benefit of low mana cost and land fetch.

Primordial Hydra may be the best Hydra in the game. I highly suggest it in this deck.

Primordial Hydra and Protean Hydra are some really fun options. Also Vigor and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan are good utility cards in this type of deck.

I have decided to remove Primordial Hydra from the deck. I have replaced this card with Privileged Position.

The are a few reasons why I removed Primordial Hydra the first being that far too often I would pull it off of the top of my library when activating Golos, Tireless Pilgrim which means I cast him for 0 on "X".

The second reason I removed Primordial Hydra is because it cannot interact with cards like Debtors' Knell and Reya Dawnbringer once again due to the "X" in it's cost.

Lastly, I feel like the deck does not interact with Primordial Hydra as well as other decks that abuse "X" costs do. It felt like I was trying to keep the hydra in the deck to stay on upkeep theme.

Now that I have Privileged Position in the deck, I can now better protect cards like Solitary Confinement, Form of the Dragon, and Paradox Haze which are all very big targets for removal for my opponents.

Hey, nice start with a high budget.

Sultai is the best color combination for ramp, tutors and draw in Commander. My advice with a $700+ budget is to take more advantage of these. There's nothing wrong with a few Hydras, but most of them are the lackluster cards in the deck. Zaxara being a four drop can benefit from more fast ramp especially one drop mana dorks.

Carpet of Flowers is powerful repeatable ramp in multiplayer Commander. Mystery Booster Card set version is down to $15.

More tutors and repeatable draw sources let you cut some subpar X spells instead tutor for and/or draw into the better spells. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study are two of the best sources of repeatable draw in multiplayer Commander. More one drop mana dorks and Zaxara creates tokens is good as fodder for Diabolic Intent.

Mystical Tutor and Spellseeker give you many options to choose from for X spells. Having Zagoth Triome and Shock lands then Farseek is an upgrade for Cultivate and Reach.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Depends on your deck but when I drop Herald I always become target number one in my proliferate deck. I was running atrax but switched to bant proliferate to be different. Anyways I am not sure about the rest of your deck but when I drop creatures like Kalonian Hydra and Jenara, Asura of War Managorger HydraPrimordial Hydra hearld is 500 ties better than Abzan. Really comes down to deck but I prefer herald

Here's my deck if interested +1/+1 Counter/Proliferate
