Sir, I think Magic's Arachne is feeling a little left out...
Sorry for the joke; I didn't sleep well last night

Nice deck : ) I guess my only question is, what do you want to do as a wincon? There are a lot of options to go infinite if you want to, but I completely understand if you don't. But things like Fauna Shaman or Green Sun's Zenith or Vivien, Monsters' Advocate can really make creature based combos very reliable.
Another take would be to go the enchantress route. Green has a lot of ways to get incidental card draw off enchantments, like Rune of Might and Kenrith's Transformation. Those together with Argothian Enchantress or other enchantresses, including Setessan Champion and Eidolon of Blossoms can be a very effective draw engine in green. And enchantress decks love Arasta of the Endless Web who can really help with flying problems. Everyone feeds her : ) No one respects spiders.
But at the same time, enchantress might also make it less of an elf deck. So, I guess, what are you most interested in doing with the deck? It looks like a really good elf combat deck as is, it could be powered up by infinites like Umbral Mantle or Quirion Ranger and Ashaya, Soul of the Wild or Staff of Domination to power a Wren's Run Packmaster or Umbral Mantle pump win. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is also a great mana outlet. But it all depends what you want to play I guess : )

Or Curse of Opulence, Curse of Disturbance, Bloodvial Purveyor, Arasta of the Endless Web, Dragonlair Spider, Faerie Artisans, Howling Moon, Infested Roothold, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Overseer of the Damned, Revel in Riches, Snake Pit, Swarm Shambler, Thorn Lieutenant, or Waste Not.
The sentiment is a lot more than actually , that's all I'm saying.

Thanks for the explanation! I understand the strategy and the mechanics of the deck. Even though it will take a while for my gameplay to flow smoothly, I like the challenge ;) What I ment is: In the case that I have three opponents, Meekstone on the board and holding my win con Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite + Nature's Revolt in my hand. What if can't run over all opponents at once? I'll run out of mana, cause all of my lands are tapped out and I guess, that I won`t have any more creatures that are going to untap cause of Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Meekstone. So I figured out to cut it in favor of Crackdown. What do you think? I've already noticed, that this decklist is not the cheapest...I've checked the cards that I own and checked out cardmarket and it'll currently cost me arround 200-300€. I thought of cutting a few missing cards in favor of a few token summoning cards like Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, Ajani's Chosen, Arasta of the Endless Web, Archon of Sun's Grace + Overrun Do you think that would be a possibility? Otherwise, I would also be happy about 1-2 budget deck suggestions that you would recommend ;) Thanks a lot for your support!! I really appreciate that! Excuse my somewhat dusty English, I hope everything was understandable so far!

Very nice deck. A card like Arachnogenesis seems made for this deck. With Chatter on the field this really makes an ungodly amount of tokens. Speakin' of spiders, that reminds me: Arasta of the Endless Web, crazy good against any deck that likes slinging spells. Champion of Lambholt also seems very good for a deck that can generate this many tokens. Last but not least, I would really recommend Heroic Intervention to counter wipes against your token armies.
Good luck playing this; looks fun!

Daedalus19876 Thank you for your feedback and the suggestions!
I alredy have an eye on Blight Mound in another deck but it hasn’t entered the Battlefield yet.
I love Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and have to find a spot for him. Which swap would you consider?
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is an extraordinary strong card. I haven’t considered using him in this deck so far, but you’re right, i have tons of tokens which would be awesome fodder for him. Which card would tou cut for him?

Have you considered Parallel Lives or Second Harvest to ramp up your squirrel production? It stacks with your commander's effect. I'm also a fan of Arasta of the Endless Web and Blight Mound and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder as token producers which allow you to make squirrels too. Have you considered Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as a sac outlet for all of your ridiculous tokens? He's spectacular in that role...
