Basicly I have removed the slower Planeswalker, those with high mana cost and/or high ultimate and no very usefull +1. The reason is that I just can't never use it. Thats means no more Garruk, Caller of Beasts , and Nissa, Who Shakes the World . I have replace them with Horn of Greed and Early Harvest to get more momentum on card draw and mana ramp.
I also have switch Rishkar's Expertise in favor of Shamanic Revelation because I get stuck with Rishkar's Expertise too much time waiting for the a good time to cast that never came. Also, this deck almost never loose a game in my meta. Thats means that im the primary target before the game start. Since that, I need more way to gain life. It also combo well with another modification. Game are almost alway's win with Craterhoof Behemoth and this card is better with a lot of token than fiew big fat creature. This is why I had reintegrate Beacon of Creation and add Lys Alana Huntmaster . Lys benefit from the more elf of the last update (like Eladamri, Lord of Leaves ). I had cut in the treefolk branch to make those addon, swiping out Seedguide Ash who is very slow and Leaf-Crowned Elder who lack of target to be really efficient.
Other modification are Constant Mists for a better protection. Wirewood Hivemaster for more tokens. Genesis Wave to replace some Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and other planewalkers habilities to fetch card from the top of library. Mwonvuli Acid-Moss Who can be use as bad ramp or to get rid of Maze of Ith or other "screw my day" land and Desert Twister as this the only one true removal in green (that I know).
To make room for the last 4 cards I don't remember witch other card than Tireless Tracker I have removed.
The goal was to get more synergy from land and creature type and also get more tokens as they are the main key to victory. By playing more and more this deck it's become obvious that the draw rate was never an issue with Nissa as commander, This is why I have cut in the more slow planewalker that do that kind of stuff in favor of more quickness and momentum.

Really like this idea for her as the commander, I'll look into it a bit and give some recommendations.
Tendershoot Dryad will make a saporling during each upkeep meaning if it isn't taken out fast you will end up with an army of 3/3 plants.
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is a good land for after you make a lot of green tokens because it will put a counter on each one that entered that turn.
Beacon of Creation will give you a large board late into the game and will shuffle back into the library after being cast.
Bow of Nylea is a cool card that can make your creatures difficult blocks by giving them all death touch as well as giving you some value with the tap ability.

You know why Cryptolith Rite is cool? Imagine I have 6 lands and cast Beacon of Creation and Cryptolith Rite , then next turn I tap all my creatures to pay for some spell to animate my lands and attack with them: Boom, I've just done magic backwards.

So, seeing your deck has got some good ramp, it looks like what you really need are big fatties that can survive an edict effect.
I have an unusual solution for you: Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang as a 5/5 flying dragon. It would be difficult, if not impossible for your opponent to deal with permanently: they would need to have Vraska's Contempt or Path to Exile for the dragon token (and even then, they have to hope you don't Plummet it in response). The 5/5 dragon can survive any number of sacrifice effects, as long as you have to get it back.
If they have artifact destruction, you activate the ability to get the dragon token in response to the spell, and this saves the sword. To bait them into using their removal on the sword, you just equip it to something.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive
I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Kamerot what do you think would be the better chose adding Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Doubling Season I feel it would have a very good synergy with my deck with cards like Avenger of Zendikar , Bane of Progress , Managorger Hydra , Myojin of Life's Web , Nacatl War-Pride , Rampaging Baloths , Scavenging Ooze , Vigor , Beacon of Creation , Garruk Wildspeaker and Vivien Reid . tell me if doubling season would work in all of those cases

Wonderful deck. I can only think of couple suggestions since the deck is great already.
My iffy suggestion is Beacon of Creation. You only run 20 forests so this isn't as abusable, but can still be good for repeated tokens for blockers or small bursts of offense.
The good suggestion is Void Winnower. This card absolutely shuts people down and since you're already running an eldrazi package, it'll fit right in.

Hi! I am building a Mazirek deck too (Mazirek Bodybuilder)!
Like your build - insect tribal is a nice idea!
