Red seems good for Impact Tremors and Hissing Iguanar than Commune with the Gods finds all your combo pieces and can even mill Faithless Looting for a free flashback.
Also, Ivy Lane Denizen and Safehold Elite are the core of your combo, why not run 4 copies of Wirewood Herald as he finds them both?

My Pauper deck has a lot in common with your deck. Might be some budget cards you want. Like Wirewood Herald as a tutor instead.

Sweet deck. I like taking advantage of Nath's discard theme, and the tokens are a great way to stall the game. There are a few recommendations that may improve the deck. I'm an advocate of using hard ramp, i.e. ramp that places lands on the board over cards that are subject to removal. With that being said, I would definitely run Hour of Promise because it doesn't have a restriction on what it can find, in terms of lands. This is a great way to tutor out your Urborg and Coffers if you need them.

Also, I think you would benefit from more card draw. Vanquisher's Banner and Greater Good are both excellent in tribal decks - Greater Good more so in elves because of Timberwatch. Another great inclusion is Wirewood Herald. The ability to tutor for a creature, specifically elf, when you have plenty of ways to sac your stuff, is perfect. Plus, it combos with Timberwatch and Greater Good.

Since you're running a heavy discard theme, I know you have Megrim, but having Liliana's Caress seems like a given choice, too.

If you want to get really cheeky, this deck is set up to run Paradox Engine + Buyback spells that generate tokens, primarily Sprout Swarm and Wurmcalling, but you can also run Mind Peel as a way to essentially Mindtwist everyone's hand. It's just a thought, but it's more of a win more strategy.

Elvish Harbinger and Wirewood Herald are two relatively inexpensive cards that tutor for valuable Elves.

Priest of Titania makes oodles of mana for you so long as you have a giant board, and it's only $2. It's well worth the cost.

Your decklist is also a little artifact-light; Bow of Nylea, Swiftfoot Boots, Whispersilk Cloak, and Golgari Signet are all worth a look.

Good call on the channeler for titania replacement, I threw that in there quickly from an outdated mtg salvation post regarding infinite combos. I use Titania in several decks and definitely a straight upgrade.

I'm assuming you have experience playing the deckstyle; I haven't gotten the chance to playtest this so I certainly appreciate the time you took to leave feedback.

The reason I have the Wirewood Herald and Elvish Harbinger is to find the Bloodbraid Elf, which would ideally help sift through all the lands in the deck to bring out the plethora of 1, 2 and 3 drop infinite combos.

I'm especially keen on Saproling Cluster + Fecundity + Ashnod's Altar + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in the library for infinite mana & card draw, and Bloodbraid certainly helps me get there.

To your point though, sticking with the theme of the deck is important and I may have tried to force one too many combos in that realistically wouldn't happen very often. I'm going to look at swapping the cards in that you suggested.

Thanks dude!

I have A Bobo too but mostly based around him.

First, replace Wirewood Channeler with either Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid

Things you could take out while keeping the theme would be: Mulch, Into the Wilds, Countryside Crusher, Elvish Harbinger, Wirewood Herald, Constant Mists, Venser's Journal, Urabrask the Hidden, and you don't need 50 land. I'd say 46.

Cards you should put in: Sprouting Vines, Creeping Renaissance, Sol Ring, Praetor's Counsel, Genesis Wave, Green Sun's Zenith, Zealous Conscripts, and maybe Rings of Brighthearth and Hull Breach

And if you want to make the deck more about bobo then add: Keen Sense, Snake Umbra, Illusionist's Bracers, Journeyer's Kite, Knollspine Dragon, Rites of Spring, and Gratuitous Violence

If your opponents don't want to killWirewood Herald, use it to your own good and attack with him - if they refuse to block, buff him a few times. When your opponents know that he hurt, they will either start blocking him (and you get to tutor something) or just take tons of damage. Both is god for you.

If you want to overrun the opponents, you should also consider Overrun
