Spawning grounds is still a bad card. I think you could use some more fast ramp. You should add 4-5 one mana ramp. Think Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Llanowar Elves , and Birds of Paradise , Boreal Druid

damn 40 elves thats a lot of elves. Honestly this is a fine deck if you're looking for a weaker precon style deck, and lathril definitely is really strong as is.

However if you are looking to eventually make it stronger, id drop down to around 30ish of the better elves so you can fit in more card draw and removal and finishers. Adding in more of the one drop elves like Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Boreal Druid to have a better shot at turn one ramp.

adding more finishers like craterhoof behemoth would also increase some consistency. budget behemoths include Decimator of the Provinces , End-Raze Forerunners .

and ya more basic black and green card draw and more removal would be good to refresh your hand after you dump all your elves on the field

Sure thing LeWaffles! If you're planning to pick up some upgrades, I'd also suggest swapping out some basic lands for these doods:

With so many mana dorks in the deck, I think you could safely function at 33 lands. The nice thing about having lots of mana dorks/rocks is that they ensure Lathril comes out a turn early. I wouldn't go lower than 32 lands though, since the odds of having drawn 3 lands by turn 3 starts to go down significantly from that point. Anyway I should stop hyper-analyzing your deck now haha. My fave deck involves Tana, the Bloodsower and she's similar to Lathril so I get excited about builds like this

Aight, you still don't have Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, Fyndhorn Elves, or Arbor Elf. You also don't have Wild Growth.

Those are not even lowkey the main reason to be in green in EDH. The speed advantage is SO worth it.

Out of the current enchantments, only Sanctuary is worth it. It is definitely a great card . . . but the rest of them are pretty much useless. Cryptolith should have no text box in Elf decks, Zendikar is too high cmc to do anything. EDIT: Alpha Status is a wincon, leave that alone.

Akroma's Memorial sucks. The rest of the artifacts are reasonable, but most of them outside Coat can be cut without a problem. But don't cut Staff, it's an infinite mana combo with several of your cards.

Outside of that, most of your list is solid, except I really recommend cutting a lot of the 3+ cmc elves for lower cost elves.

Oh, I forgot Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel. Also, Cloudstone Curio turns Druid and any couple 1 cmc elves into infinite combos.

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.
