Sacrifice Whisperwood Elemental: Until end of turn, face-up nontoken creatures you control gain "When this creature dies, manifest the top card of your library."

Maybe Archetype of Endurance to protect your board, as well as Whisperwood Elemental. Garruk's Horde and Shaman of the Great Hunt could be some more card draw. Nullmage Shepherd could be repeatable artifact/enchantment removal.

I would do Elemental Bond instead of Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Unless the scry is important, the other one should give you a draw every time an elf enters the battlefield, due to the buffs they should receive. Also, Birthing Pod might be worth looking into, as well as Green Sun's Zenith. I'd remove Eladamri's Vineyard and Whisperwood Elemental. The first card helps your opponents too much imo, and the Elemental can trap some of your important enchantments as 2/2 creatures. Also, From Beyond is far too slow, and you can't even benefit from the last effect. I'd put Arcane Adaptation over it so all your creatures can be elves.

Nice deck! I've been brewing a morph deck too and found your deck while googling for ideas. You had some cards down I hadn't thought about, so thanks for that!

I'm using Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the Commander, because I really wanted to use again Mastery of the Unseen since it rotated out of Standard, and black has some powerful cards too, like Ghastly Conscription. I'm making use of the proliferate too with planeswalkers and cards like Gavony Township.

Here're some cards I've considered that you don't have on your list.

Backslide and Master of the Veil to reuse your morph tricks.

Whisperwood Elemental is incredibly strong, and can give you an advantage over board wipes.

To make your morphs cheap there's Cloud Key, Planar Gate, Helm of Awakening, and in your colors Herald of Kozilek. And definitely Qarsi Deceiver.

Illusionary Mask probably has the most convoluted card text of all time, but it has great synergy with morph.

If you'd consider other colorless lands, some you might look at are Ancient Tomb, Temple of the False God, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods.

You can take advantage of your face-down creatures by using All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to wipe out your opponents.

Also, Ritual of Subdual shuts down your opponents' spells and lets you beat them down with morphs.

Mandalorian on Mono green(Advice needed)

Ill start by saying that Thicket Elemental is not Modern legal if you are looking to play this deck in a Modern setting.

The biggest problem with a deck like this is consistency. You might find yourself playing through games and think, "Oh man if only I had drawn that one card...." To try and avoid this you need to condense your list so that you have mostly 3-4 copies of cards you're playing. This will increase your chances of drawing these cards in matches. If you have 4 Elvish Visionarys in your deck instead of 2, you will natural draw them more frequently.

Being mono green means you can play some pretty powerful cards that other decks don't get to play, you should take advantage of that! Cards like Leatherback Baloth are very difficult to cast in decks that have multiple colors. In yours though, it's all too easy. Other cards that like being in mono green decks are Garruk's Companion, Kalonian Tusker, Aspect of Hydra, Dungrove Elder, Kalonian Twingrove etc...

A sample list could look something like this:

Remember we want multiples of 3 to 4 to increase our consistency and want to make sure we have a good curve.

4x Experiment One 2x Rancor 3x Aspect of Hydra

4x Avatar of the Resolute 4x Garruk's Companion 3x Den Protector

4x Leatherback Baloth 4x Dungrove Elder

2x Nylea's Disciple 1x Nylea, God of the Hunt

3x Whisperwood Elemental

2x Kalonian Twingrove

24x lands

Now this didn't take much thought so it's not a refined, or perhaps even good, list but shows that you can still have small numbers of certain cards, especially if they are legendary, but mostly want mulitples of 3-4 and a good curve. As our curve climbs we have less and less cards (11 2CMC cards and 3 5CMC cards), this should keep our hand from being clunky and full of uncastables. Anyway, I wont say what cards you should cut and which you should add more of, I think a bit of that has to do with what you already have. I hope this helps!

I've been considering building a deck like this and including some BA eldrazis. You might consider adding some manifest cards, as well as some flicker junk. If you have a morph/manifested creature on the field and it exiles, when it re-enters it comes in face-up.

Manifest

Cloudform, Lightform, Soul Summons, Write into Being, Whisperwood Elemental, Wildcall

Flicker

Cloudshift, Ghostly Flicker, Glimmerpoint Stag, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Conjurer's Closet

Whirler Rogue! I loved that card, paired it with Willbreaker for some busted turns.
My most popular deck by far was Temur Ascendancy COMBO. Turn 6 draw your deck, destroy everything your opponent control and attack with infinite sized hasty creatures.

But I could challenge any standard deck in the modern era to face down this beast:

Green megamorph splash blue, my own innovation, dominated for 2 seasons despite my terrible play skills. It beat everything from Atarka Red (one of the most busted aggro decks ever) to Esper Control to all flavors of Abzan in between.

The game plan was the same against everybody: - Ramp into 5-drops Whisperwood Elemental and Prognostic Sphinx. Once you achieve that, you have unbreakable card advantage and board control.
- Courser of Kruphix provided life and land
- Deathmist Raptor came back over and over
- Den Protector rebought all your spells
- Counter magic was always ready to use because morphs and flash creatures could be played if nothing needs countering).
- And one-sided mass-removal in green: Setessan Tactics. And giant Polukranos, World Eater, who on a good day could eat anything your opponent has.

The game-locking combo was having Sphinx, Whisperwood and Courser. Sphinx would guarantee every turn a free land for Courser, a great manifest for Whisperwood and a good draw off the top. That's 3 cards per turn. Or if there's a problem, you could dig so fast through your deck to find an answer. You could even pull off crazy shenanigans like blocking with a manifested instant, let it die, then flip up a Den Protector and cast it.

And the sideboard was outstanding for the colors:- Clever Impersonator to copy and steal an enemy Dragonlord Silumgar
- Hornet Nest to flood the world with flying deathhtouch.
- Polymorphist's Jest to laugh at even Dragonlord Ojutai or monstrous Fleecemane Lion
- and sometimes, Aspect of Hydra. +10/+10 for 1 mana anybody?

Changeling spells like Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap are cool with your commander, and really good with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge.

Mirari's Wake and Mana Reflection are great with your commander, anything that doubles your mana is pretty good.

Might want to add some fetch lands, Windswept Heath is expensive but good, Flood Plain and that cycle is cheaper and great with amulet of vigor.

Patriarch's Bidding is really good for tribal decks.

Ashes of the Fallen is clever with your commander

Aethersnatch,Fertilid, Nevermaker, Reveillark, Whisperwood Elemental are all good elementals.

Karmic Guide isn't an elemental but still super good, and combos with reveillark and a sac outlet

Purge without question!: Explosive Vegetation (why? you have ore than enough sorcery tutor), Gaea's Blessing (why? not that great 95% of the time in EDH), all the signets (replace with a Chromatic Lantern), Harmonize (why? one time use draw is meh unless its a bomb like a lot of blue draw can be. no versatility means you're better off with Sylvan Library and your other two bigger green sorceries), 2 Mountain (why? your land base is very hefty for many low cmc cards, and you have an excess o red mana according to your color wheel on the site), Fortified Village (why? these lands are not great in commander, and I find a good rule to be for land count to be 30+cmc of your commander), Bloodmark Mentor (why? doesn't target enough of your creatures to matter much), Honored Crop-Captain (why? low board impact), Khenra Charioteer (why? weaker Archetype of Aggression, low impact), Knight of New Alara (why? its not a Warrior! Also, most of your creatures are mono color, making this do almost nothing), Prowling Serpopard (why? sideboard this at best as it will do nothing in any game that's not against blue and even if it does something, its not that threatening), Somberwald Sage (why? you have almost no need for this ramp as it affects only creatures and your creature cmc is very low), Day of Judgment (why? well you have no real recursion or protection or way to reamass a board... this will end you faster than an opponent in most games)

Things to consider: Your enthusiasm for warriors are good, but you only need about 75% to 80% of your creatures actually be warrior to be true tribal. You want at maximum only 30 creatures too for just about any EDH deck unless rare exceptions apply (which this does not apply). The issue is, most warriors just plain are not that good. Commander is all about high impact. One and done spells and creatures do very little for players unless they're in a very specific situation. It is always better to go broad. One thing you should consider, along with Errast's amazing list of good cards (except for Reckless Bushwhacker and Whisperwood Elemental... don't do those, but seriously, add everything else!) is more utility creatures/ spells... leading me to suggest these for strong consideration:

-Sun Titan: Recur your smaller dudes and give their little impact more oomph by making them never go away!

-Nylea, God of the Hunt: Best trample anthem, also lets you buff dudes.

-Purphoros, God of the Forge: Wincon, ping damage and buff everyone!

-Iroas, God of Victory: This just is plain bombtastic in a go-wide-with-lotsa-dudes strategy.

-Nahiri, the Harbinger: Draw or removal. You can't go wrong. Ult to win.

-Ajani Unyielding: Again, draw or removal. You need more of both. Ult to win.

-Swords to Plowshares/Path to Exile/Chaos Warp: You have a lot of stuff you don't want to lose, so instead of big board wipes (I mean, really, you want to keep your board and let your creature oppression be part of what puts your opponents in line), run single target removal. These are the best for this deck IMO.

-Lightning Greaves: You want to protect your key creatures, and this is an EDH staple for a reason.

I hope this helped. :)
