Undergrowth Champion because he is also very VERY resilient in this deck
Dense Foliage is great protection for your creatures, but you'd have to see if this card has will interfere with any creatures that "move" or have "graft" like abilities, be aware that this card is symmetrical with the whole board however and not just your side, in that case i'd recommend Asceticism
to help your creatures get through as well, consider Bellowing Tanglewurm

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

I love tribal decks and you seem to have a solid base for your elves here but there are a few recommendations I have that may prove helpful.
Your commander will be a VERY high target so I would run some protective measures to keep him around like Yavimaya Hollow and Asceticism as it adds some regeneration protection to your commander although some of the options are pricey.
Removal is always useful and a good option is Song of the Dryads being a cheaper option then Desert Twister that as a plus empowers Elvish Champion, forestwalk... no one ever seems to notice that or care about it until your elves get +6/+6.
I personally love Nissa Revane and Nissa's Chosen for the life gain effects and blocker alone, the ultimate is just a bonus. Another fun choice is Immaculate Magistrate, this card is great for making players hesitant to block or attack you and will often eat a removal spell that would have been better aimed at your commander. Funny uses include politicking with this card since the target does not have to be YOUR creatures, you have not lived untill you have seen a 10/11 Birds of Paradise terrorizing the enemy.
Bring doom to your foes by empowering your commander or unblocked attackers with elves like Wirewood Channeler, or any others that can add more then three mana, paired with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns. One thing worth mentioning is that Umbral Mantle is almost a backup commander empowering mana producers before the attack, most people unfamiliar with the card wont see this coming.

I recommend Steel Wall if you want toughness for value to put on the pressure and Hornet Nest if you prefer a strong deterrent. I'd also suggest having more redundancy for your commander if you're not spending resources on protecting him. Assault Formation is the most obvious since it also serves as a mana sink on offense. However, Huatli, the Sun's Heart and Rolling Stones sort of work in a pinch. The alternative could be to run more cards like Asceticism.

Let's see if I can help ya out here since you need to protect Ramos ASAP. Lightning Greaves and Asceticism are really nice but imma try to keep it budget. Whispersilk Cloak is nice since you can hit em with that unblockable but I think Glaring Spotlight is extremely underrated. Swiftfoot Boots are really good too. If you want to go crazy with Ramos you can always add in Helm of the Host too for extra fun! Progenitus is one of my favorites too. I see you're going with walls so Wall of Kelp and Intruder Alarm goes infinite with Axebane Guardian so that's something to keep in mind too. Assault Formation is your backup just in case and when your walls start attacking, Tower Defense is a really cheeky play. Hopefully this helps a little

To Apollo_Paladin, your suggestion is is pretty helpful! My Maybeboard Cards Asceticism and Sphere of Safety were cards that I figured could be powerful in a drawn out match but I am not sure of they will ever get much use in a short match...
Also, think I might replace Unflinching Courage with Armadillo Cloak. That way, I could gain double life with Daybreak Coronet and Armadillo Cloak. Also, if I must pacify another creature I will be able to.

You make a fair point regarding Greater Good, Bonders' Enclave, and The Great Henge, and I agree with cutting Asceticism, Concordant Crossroads, and Seedborn Muse, even though I really enjoy the card.
