I personally recommend Marwyn, the Nurturer as the commander for Elves due to the fact it's a worse Archdruid in the command zone. Freyalise is definitely a bomb of epic proportions, but at 5 cmc I personally wouldn't use it as the commander.

Also, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, Wild Growth, Heritage Druid, Nettle Sentinel are all musts for elf tribal. Gyre Sage can also be reasonably powerful.

I'd also cut Myriad Landscape for another basic Forest, and find room for Arbor Elf. Birds of Paradise is worth considering as well, but if you don't want to shell that out then you're good.

Llanowar Tribe is also a great spell.

That's a great starting point. There are some more things I'd recommend, but I'll have to come back later.

I can forsee a world where Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl make a turn 2 Scapeshift enabling the combo.

At the moment, it looks like you basically have two different decks mashed into one. If you cut your 120 cards into two decks of 60, you'll essentially have double the options to play while improving the power level of both. The two main strategies I'm seeing here are Naya ramp/midrange and some sort of bird/flying tribal. I'll give some of my budget suggestions for both archetypes.

For Naya ramp, you definitely want to focus on the mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Ilysian Caryatid, and Knotvine Mystic before using the extra mana to play your threats like Godsire, Titanic Ultimatum, and Atarka, World Render. Midrange will forego some of the lower and upper ends of the curve to play efficient midgame creatures like Retaliator Griffin, Managorger Hydra, and Llanowar Visionary. Some other ramp options include Voyaging Satyr, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl. Some other bombs include Hornet Queen, Vigor, Archetype of Endurance, Terastodon, Armada Wurm, Gruul Ragebeast, Rakeclaw Gargantuan, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Woodfall Primus, and Warstorm Surge. Some midrange threats are Wild Nacatl, Woolly Thoctar, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Burning-Tree Emissary, and Bloodbraid Elf.

For birds, I'd definitely recommend swapping red out for blue. This lets you play flying buffs like Empyrean Eagle, Watcher of the Spheres, Skycat Sovereign, Jubilant Skybonder, Favorable Winds, Flurry of Wings, and Stolen by the Fae. Some options that stay in white are Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel, Midnight Haunting, and Battle Screech. Some additional bird stuff could be Aven Mimeomancer, Pride of the Clouds, Wingmate Roc, Kangee, Aerie Keeper, Call, and Murmuring Mystic. These types of decks generally go as wide as possible, buff the team with anthem effects, and swing in the air for the win.

Cards I see in this deck that don't fit in either archetype are Ajani's Pridemate, Pyroceratops, End Hostilities, Planar Outburst, Star of Extinction, Giant Growth, Moonhold, Double Vision, Furor of the Bitten, and Darksteel Pendant. At least, those are the first that spring to mind as targets to replace first. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions and I wish you good luck with your build!

1) ok, i switched it from Arbor Elf to Chrome Mox. my biggest issue rn is that a lot of the mana dorks produce green and it has slowd me down a turn.

2) i really only have 34 lands as 3 of them arnt actually used as lands Glacial Chasm, Maze of Ith, Malakir Rebirth  Flip.

3) i do need better tutors, Diabolic Tutor cost way 2 much, even though this deck produces a stupid amount of mana.

4) regarding cards like Tectonic Reformation id rather have more tutors.

5) i have enough haste providers, when i do cast my commander i wouldn't have enough mana to activate his ability anyways, i have enough haste providers where it might help if the game lasts longer.

Hmmhmmm, I would most likey cut Arbor Elf - just because it only untaps Forest, which you have only basic and some duals, which I think isnt so worth it, any other mana dork would be better if you think you even need more of them :D Also, there already is several cards that untap all your lands/permanents, so something thats focused only on Forest is kinda uneffective, unless you get all those mana-doubling enchantments on board, which again, mana dork would do the same work, probably even better?

And second cut would probably be 1x Forest, since you have 37 lands in total (+1mdfc) and several mana dorks, etc. :D

Next thing could probably be replacing some black tutors with better tutors. Diabolic Tutor for Diabolic Intent whenever you wouldnt need any cheap mana dork, or just sac anything else with Malakir Rebirth  Flip casted on it after that creature being killed. Or just any tutor you would become liking more.

When I think about some cards I run in my mono-R deck, Tectonic Reformation is pretty decent later on when you dont need that many lands anymore. Burning Earth with enough mana dorks/artifacts, but probably not in this deck, since there is a lot of non-basic lands.
Anger just to sac it (maybe to Diabolic Intent) or just let it die/discard so your mana dorks and Yurlok have Haste right away.

Is there any creatures you are specific "I will not take these out"? I have a few suggestions mainly about the ramp and how to make it more consistent/efficient.

You don't need gen wave and put in play cards. For example...

Hey check out my deck Gruul Hydras

If you want genesis wave to be optimal going all out on getting it pumped up is the way to go. There is an old school Gen wave deck that was pretty good i would refer to it for extra tid bits.
