I've never understood why people choose to play Nissa Revane. She's basically a slow Wellwisher that forces you to include a bad card. Some cards that I would replace those two with are Joraga Warcaller as a lord that scales, and Metallic Mimic. I also would try to make room for Heritage Druid and Immaculate Magistrate. Coat of Arms and Obelisk of Urd are a must-have in tribal EDH decks, and you seem to be missing a Sol Ring ;)
Great deck overall though!

If you go through the linked article he explains a lot of the wheres and whys, first develops it into elf deck, then a better deck with more money, then finally "take out the worst 15 elves and put these in" which is the land stuff.
Elves kept: Caller of the Claw; Elvish Archdruid; Elvish Harbinger; Essence Warden; Fierce Empath; Immaculate Magistrate; Imperious Perfect; Joraga Warcaller; Lys Alana Huntmaster; Oracle of Mul Daya; Wellwisher; Wren's Run Packmaster; Yeva, Nature's Herald.
Elves lost: Arbor Elf; Birchlore Rangers; Elvish Mystic; Elvish Visionary; Ezuri, Renegade Leader; Farhaven Elf; Heritage Druid; Joraga Treespeaker; Llanowar Elves; Priest of Titania; Reclamation Sage; Timberwatch Elf; Titania's Chosen; Wirewood Channeler; Wood Elves.
Collective Unconscious got kicked for Shamanic Revelation, and Swiftfoot Boots for Lightning Greaves, just personal preference. The fella was cost conscious so I added to the manabase (Gaea's Cradle, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs and Misty Rainforest (basically the Forest Fetchlands and Cradle).

Not necessarily in that order but to me these are the most powerful, honorable mention going to Elvish Champion.

So, I've been taking in all of these suggestions and trying to narrow things down as far as which cards I'd like in the deck. So, these are the cards I'm considering, how much of each, and why. From there, maybe you guys can help me narrow things down..?
2 Wren's Run Packmaster and 2 Howl of the Night Pack has been a good combo, allowing me to get a lot of deathtouch creatures to block with, or to to discourage enemies from attacking while I build up my elves.
2 Jagged-Scar Archers gets even better with more elves on the field. It'd be a great (and so far, only) defense against any flying, able to deal damage without taking any if needed.
2 Overwhelming Stampede. This. This has actually won me the game many times, giving all of my creatures a great temporary buff and trample, allowing my damage to actually go through.
4 Elvish Archdruid can give me a lot of mana to work with, with an added buff to all elves as well!
2 Ambush Commander pairs greatly with a lot of cards, getting a lot more tokens onto the field. The only 'danger' of this card is the enemy having a board wipe or taking out the lands otherwise, which has happened to me once or twice.
2 Wellwisher. One game, I had two of these out and reached about 100+ life. That was pretty fun.
2 Bramblewood Paragon gives a lot of creatures a good buff, as well as the all-important trample condition.
3 Elvish Promenade gives me a lot of tokens to work with, which helps for both blocking and building things up.
3 Elvish Mystic, 3 Llanowar Elves, and 2 Heritage Druid help greatly with accquiring mana; but with 4 Elvish Archdruid, I don't want too much of these cards, otherwise I'll have more than I need and less cards to actually cast from these guys.
2 Ezuri, Renegade Leader could provide me with both a nice buff and an easy way to regenerate creatures. Great card all-in-all for the cost.
2 Dwynen's Elite gets me another token when casting it. Pretty good, but a lot of other things also give me more tokens as well.
3 Elvish Visionary helps me with card draw, giving me a little more to work with.
Eladamri, Lord of Leaves is a great card, but it seems a little too expensive for my taste, heh.
So, this is my thought process so far as I try to narrow everything down. Thoughts, if any..?

Sorry I forgot to add explanations,
Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves are important as they are the best 1 drops you could place on turn 1 (in an elf deck). They help power everything in later turns. Also, you are kind of lacking on 1 drops.
Elvish Archdruid - a great lord, is probably the only one you will run if you play modern. Taps for a heck ton of mana.
Elvish Visionary - green can often lack card draw, and this guy provides it.
Ambush Commander - very great with elvish archdruid, you can tap the archdruid for even more mana, or just have 2/2 elf lands.
Elvish Promenade makes a ton of tokens with ambush commander.
Wellwisher makes a ton of life.
Heritage Druid allows for some awesomely broken turns, as you ignore summoning sickness if you tap creatures to her ability.
Dwynen's Elite: a 2 for 1 with 3 power split between 2 creatures is great.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader allows for a turn 3 win. turn 1 Llanowar Elves, turn 2 Heritage Druid + Dwynen's Elite, tap all 3 into an Elvish Archdruid. turn 3 cast Ezuri, Renegade Leader, tap archdruid for 6 mana, activate ezuri, swing with your 4 untapped creatures for 21 damage.

Completely agree with twistedmage then you must run a playset of Eladamri, Lord of Leaves. Deathrite Shaman is an auto include. Dwynen's Elite is a playset must. Your mana dorks need to be there too Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic Dryad Arbor and Green Sun's Zenith need to be there. Heedless One could be a nice 1 or 2 of. Wellwisher i know youre already running 2 but with the playset, and elad, you should never lose. Talara's Battalion could be awfully easy to cast and nasty with your pump lords. Ezuri, Renegade Leader could end up being a pretty fast, nasty, win con for you. Basically, you add all these suggestions, and cut most of the non creature cards, and any of the creature cards that have cmc of 4 or 5 or higher.
Your current instants arent needed. If you want to run instants (you wont/shouldnt need to) but collected company would be the preferred. Also, youre running way too many lands, mono colored deck, now youll be running dorks that have hex proof, youll be fine running 15-18 lands. So enjoy the extra deck space for more face beaters. Hope this helps! Have fun elfing your friends up!
