Vraska's Contempt is a must. Instant, so you can react to opponent movements; can target Planeswalkers, not many cards can do that in the enviroment right now.
Black/White mana, has not a solid base right now. I would include Isolated Chapel, and change Hierophant's Chalice with Chromatic Lantern. Your deck does not have a lot of double color spells, so this will be only relevant if you find yourself having problem with fixing the mana.
If your plan is to shift to Vampires Legion Lieutenant, Legion's Landing, Champion of Dusk and Radiant Destiny should be right choices. Adding Vanquisher's Banner is for late, and with no mana acceleration could be a little heavy, but the card draw power is quite good in a tribal deck. Blood Operative is good against the new mechanic Jump-start, but you need more cards with surveil for it to work. Twilight Prophet and Sanctum Seeker are pretty strong too. I feel as you have little removal, Cast Down and Price of Fame are both pretty solid, the later being specially good in a format with a constant legendary treat.
Consider taking outYargle, Glutton of Urborg 5 manas, no vampire, no tramble or other evasion. Arvad the Cursed You don't have a lot of legendary creatures, 5 manas for a 3/3 with no evasion, you can find better things.Encampment Keeper and Walking Corpse must go if you want to take the tribal approach. I would changeCobbled Wings for Captain's Hook, it can do a lot of damage, and is pretty good in creatures with lifelink. Queen's Commission might be nice too.
Good Luck. P.S.:Sorry for my bad english.

Hey Melanthios, wow, perfect winning records in all three events great job; I'm honestly surprised. I know this version of the deck is good, but not losing at all to Golgari is amazing. You're right about Loxodon he can be clunky and really requires a curve out to be good. This version can be aggressive with a good curve out into Loxodon, but most of the time it falls into midrange which makes Loxodon less effective. I also agree that Collector without Loxodon is not as good. Loxodon is the reason I'm playing Collector because on curve it can make Collector a very good creature, but if I don't draw Loxodon then Collector is subpar even with a curve out of Collector into Thorn into Champion. I've cut Collector from my Golgari version. Even though I'm playing Glowspore Shaman and Plaguecrafter who are both quite good at pumping Collector.
You're thinking of playing Benalish Marshal and Steel Leaf Champion in the same deck? I think this is a mistake and will strain the manabase too much with 7-8x Forests. Ajani is hard enough to cast. He's really the reason I included Flower; one mana to search of a Plains or Forest is good. Flourish is nice as a pump, but six mana is a lot for +2/+2. If you want a pump for Elves to be better against red then consider Radiant Destiny or Pride of Conquerors? Both these cards can be reliably cast on curve and are low enough mana cost to play one of them before Goblin Chainwhirler.
You're records are great, unfortunately I'm not having as much success with Selesnya; I'm having more success with Golgari. I'm going to be changing this deck soon to Golgari. A preview is Elves of the Swarm (GRN). The problem in Standard right now is there's too much creature removal, so many options. Selesnya just folds when facing a lot of removal especially against Deafening Clarion (Boros Angels, Jeskai Control) and Ritual of Soot (Esper Control, Grixis Control, Golgari). Golgari provides resiliency against removal where as Selesnya doesn't. Ajani's reanimation is great in Selesnya with Elves for recovery, but Golgari has many other options including a damn Elf who can recur any one permanent.
Golgari Findbroker, Find / Finality and The Eldest Reborn these are not just single cards that can recur other cards they can be engines. The fact that Findbroker can recur a Planeswalker is so good for recovery and value. Planeswalkers, Duress, Plaguecrafter, Reborn and even Underrealm Lich or Carnage Tyrant gives Golgari many tools against control.
The point of Golgari is to out card advantage your opponent which with the current pool of cards can be done and it's quite powerful. Ravenous Chupacabra and Plaguecrafter help a ton at doing this because they're versatile removal spells which can be recurred since they're creatures. You're right Lava Coil is a pain in the ass removal spell to play against, but even though it exiles I care less about 1 for 1 removal when playing Findbroker and Find. Unless my opponent draws 3-4 Coils then this card alone is not going to stop me from playing more creatures then my opponent. If he's not exiled being able to recur Steel Leaf Champion is very good in Golgari.
I'm sorry I'm changing my deck so much, but we are still in the early stages of Guilds of Ravnica Standard. I think it's great you're using this deck as inspiration for decks you're actually playing at tournaments and I don't want to discourage you, but have to expect that some versions are just not right at the current time. There are so many good options for Elves right now in Standard that finding the right one and being able to stick with it is difficult.

Kizmetto I don't like all the "iffy" things about Radiant Destiny - IF it's a Soldier, IF I have time to cast Radiant Destiny instead of a Creature (tricky in an aggro deck), IF I have the City's Blessing I also get Vigilance.
Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is an interesting idea.
I will wait first to see how this does as is at tournament level, but will keep that Planeswalker in mind. Argy and I have one copy in our collection.
Thanks for the suggestions and the ... +1?

Goblin Warchief+Skirk Prospector+Squee, the Immortal+Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle.
Infinite cast sac loop.
add Runaway Steam-Kin into the mix now you have infinite mana.
you can make mana and dump it into something like Makeshift Munitions or Banefire, or you can just reanimate all your cmc 3 or less goblins in your yard and attack in, but if one of them is Fanatical Firebrand, then you win also. You get to play Radiant Destiny and Conclave Tribunal just because. Potential to jam Ajani's Welcome if you really want to just to make the sac loop infinite life.

Skyler1776: Not sure how I forgot about Vraska's Contempt. Maybe the cost since I don't have one right now but I might look into it. Radiant Destiny I'm not sure on yet. I'll have to try that out. Unmoored Ego looks good for sideboard.
