I think you could change the manabase a little to make it a lot better:
You'll have to switch your manabase anyway because Jungle Hollow is not Standard legal anymore.
Also, try having less 1-ofs and more 4-ofs. I have linked a deck below for you to check out:

your Flower / Flourish will only ever be able to grab plains atm and only 8 of your lands can play the Llanowar Elves on turn 1, essentially I recommend changing those swamps to forests or maybe 1 into a forest and one into another Woodland Cemetery so you also more consistently can play Conclave Cavalier on turn 3/4.
In fact I'd suggest maybe reworking the mana base to maximize your chances of getting a turn 2 history and having 6 slots used for basics might be too weakening (if you find yourself not having any plains or forests out of having 3-4 basics for a flower you're likely going to want to flourish... which your current setup is at anyway).
It maybe better to reduce how heavy one color is for your deck, maybe a less heavy black sideboard, or maybe run some Valiant Knights over the cavalier, or maybe lessen the need for green by cutting the Llanowar Elves, ramping to 3 is pretty good, but it's a little difficult to achieve value when you're best 3 drop is double white.

Welcome to Tapped Out!
I too am running a Sultai deck in Standard currently, so good luck in your endeavors.
It would probably be a good idea to show the land base to know how balanced or unbalanced it is. Currently you're at a 2.46 CMC average meaning you should probably have 24 lands, but you do have Llanowar Elves, so you could get away with 23. Though I'd invest in some Evolving Wilds if you can't get a hold of any of the following lands: Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor, Overgrown Tomb, Watery Grave or Woodland Cemetery. That will allow you to search for a land in the event you only get two colors during your first couple of turns.
I'd look into Ochran Assassin as it has good synergy with Vraska, Golgari Queen, allowing you to use a creature that doesn't need to be unblockable. Thoughtbound Phantasm and Dimir Spybug would be good additions here. Instead of Demon of Catastrophes, Doom Whisperer is a primo card right now.
You could also use Enhanced Surveillance and Gaea's Blessing to recycle your graveyard back into your library after you get a flipped Search for Azcanta.

Hi rejeck10, I like the deck :) I was in the middle of planning abzan tokens myself. I just wanted to point out Elenda, the Dusk Rose I know she is not the cheapest card $$ wise but she does love token decks. she gives you the ability to swing without regret with your tokens! Also Woodland Cemetery is the only land in abzan your not using!! Hope this helps

Hi I like the deck! I run a similar-ish deck that has less creatures(actually just the tyrant) and more removal making it more control, but I like seeing a different take on a similar concept. I have two suggestions 1st is that you seem to be trying to max out your land base. If you truly want to max it out Woodland Cemetery is the final piece of the puzzle, giving you 20 rare lands!!! 2nd is I do not think Vraska, Golgari Queen fits in this deck :( the sacrificing a permanent is a bit pricey in this deck as you wan't your creatures and lands. I thought of her more as a weenie/tokens deck planes-walker. I would suggest Karn, Scion of Urza as he seems to be dropping in price and/or Treasure Map Flip for some delightful draw! (the two work really well together. Hope this helps a bit but regardless like the deck +1

Hey, mono black midrange has many good cards for post rotation. I suggest Ravenous Chupacabra, Plaguecrafter, Doom Whisperer and The Eldest Reborn. These are four powerful cards for a midrange strategy. You already have 4x Contempt and Isareth which is great. Two drop options that can give you value are Dusk Legion Zealot and Seekers' Squire. Dead Weight and Cast Down are good early game creature removal. Find / Finality is a good card for recursion. Find can be cast with only black mana and recurring any two creatures from your graveyard for two mana is value.
Current black midrange decks in Standard are turning toward Golgari instead of mono black because recursion can be much better with Golgari. Overgrown Tomb and Woodland Cemetery, green gives lots of good options that mono black can't provide mostly both sides of Find / Finality, Golgari Findbroker, Assassin's Trophy, Vraska, Relic Seeker, but also Wildgrowth Walker with the explore creatures (Merfolk Branchwalker, Jadelight Ranger, Seekers' Squire).

I'm curious if Conclave Cavalier is performing well for you. If it's not performing that well b/c of the mana strain you could take them out for your 3 Knight of Autumn and free up 3 more spots sideboard.
Also I feel like you want to be maximizing your green and white mana sources based on the direction you took the deck, and just splashing for black. Maybe something like: 4x Temple Garden 4x Sunpetal Grove 3x Forest 5x Plains 1x Swamp 4x Isolated Chapel 3x Woodland Cemetery That gives you 17 white sources, 14 green sources, and 8 black sources compared to your current: 13 white, 14 green, 9 black (not including unclaimed territory). It should allow you to play History of Benalia on curve much better without hurting your early green plays.

Just updated with the new budget version, Budget Elves of Ravnica.
The strategy is some what different to account for the considerable decrease in deck price. Notable main deck cards excluded are: Pelt Collector, Steel Leaf Champion, Trostani Discordant, Knight of Autumn and Temple Garden. It's also Selesnya tribal Elves with Elvish Clancaller using convoke with Emmara, Soul of the Accord, Venerated Loxodon and Conclave Tribunal. The difference is I've added a ramp strategy with Marwyn, the Nurturer and Druid of the Cowl. The added ramp is for main deck Shalai, Voice of Plenty. The budget version can go aggressive with Loxodon or midrange/ramp with Marwyn/Shalai/Loxodon.
I decided to add main deck Shalai over main deck Whisperer because Shalai is much better against aggro than Whisperer. With the loss of Steel Leaf Champion in the budget version than the power level is decreased a lot therefore I need to add something that could recoup some power level; Shalai with ramp is my answer. Whisperer is still a powerful strategy with Elves, but for now he'll go in the sideboard for midrange/control matchups.
The sideboard is much different to also account for the decrease in deck price. Most notable card excluded is Vivien Reid. Unfortunately, Vivien is not a budget card for Standard. In her place I've added more Whisperer and Find / Finality. Find is quickly becoming one of my favorite cards in Guilds of Ravnica; I find my self putting it in all my green decks. Find is very good at recovery after removal or nonSettle board wipe; two mana to recur two different creatures is very good.
Finality is good too especially with Marwyn and Shalai and I could see adding some Woodland Cemetery to play it, but for now I'm leaving black out in the manabase. With the lose of Vivien, the budget version needs alternative ways of card advantage for midrange/control matchups which Find provides. Citywide Bust replaces Settle the Wreckage and is a significant downgrade, but it's a necessary answer to Carnage Tyrant or Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Reclamation Sage replaces Knight of Autumn.
