Basshunter, I had some more thoughts on what you said, and decided to try something new last Friday. I removed some of the stealing and copying elements of the deck and replaced them with some more wipes (to counter token decks a bit more effectively). I also added some equipment to turn Keiga into a bit more of a powerhouse, in case I was facing decks that were a bit lighter on creatures. Both seemed to work rather well!
First game was an easy win, as one of the players was using Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma as their general and kept dropping fatties for me to kidnap and another was playing Angel-tribal. The second game was much tougher, but I managed to beat a Chatterfang, Squirrel General and a Purphoros, God of the Forge deck by holding them off with the new counter measures, until I could steal their generals. Finished 2nd in the end. The 3rd game I played involved someone using Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Couldn't hold him off long enough before he got me (and all the other participants).
Overall, not a bad result at all! I enjoyed playing the deck a bit more, now that it had a bit more dimensions to it. All thanks to you! If ever you feel the desire to give similar constructive feedback on my other decks, I'll be all ears!

Teferi, Multiversal Adept
Legendary Planeswalker - Teferi
A deck may contain any number of cards named ~.
During each of your turns, you can't activate more than three loyalty abilities from among all planeswalkers named ~ you control.
+1 Draw a card, then discard a card. If you discarded a card named ~, draw an additional card.
-2 Tap up X target non-land permanents and put a stun counter on each of them, where X is the number of planeswalkers named ~ you control plus the number of cards named ~ in your graveyard.
I reallytried to not make this broken, but it still feels pretty damn strong in a really Teferi way.
Create a commander that cares about legendary non-humans. I want a chance to dream about playing Kibo, Uktabi Prince, Chatterfang, Squirrel General and every other legendary small mammal in the same deck.

A really good card for Lathril decks is Chatterfang, Squirrel General. Chatterfang essentially doubles token generation and could essentially be a budget version of Parallel Lives when it comes down to it. Lathril is a really cool commander (who comes from one of my favorite sets/planes!) and has the potential to be built in a lot of different ways and power levels. Definitely a good pick!

KBK7101 thanks for your suggestion. I really don't like Chatterfang, Squirrel General, but i really like Species Specialist and Crippling Fear. I also would like to build the deck much more around the graveyard so i think I'll keep Deadbridge Chant for now

I'd probably cut Deadbridge Chant. I don't think there is enough graveyard stuff going on to warrant it in this deck. You could also probably stand to lose a few creatures. Maybe some of the lower impact ones like Thornbow Archer and Nath of the Gilt-Leaf?
Probably the most obvious addition would be Parallel Lives but that card is a pretty expensive these days. Chatterfang, Squirrel General can do a good enough impression if you want that kind of effect for a lot less money.
Crippling Fear is a non-elf board wipe. Won't kill everything, but might help clear the way for Lathril to connect.
Species Specialist, while not an elf, can name elves as the creature type for it's death trigger effect so you can draw when one dies.

Thank you for the suggestions CommanderNeyo, also cool user name. Kind of a shame we didn't see more of Commander Neyo in later seasons of Clone Wars.
You have some pretty interesting suggestions, mixed in with a couple of cards I have played before. I'll do my best to address my thoughts on each. Of your suggested cards, I do have Breena, the Demagogue & Mardu Ascendancy in my obnoxiously convoluted Maybe List. A long response for a long post:
Mardu Ascendancy has been on my radar since the earliest days of this deck's creation. I agree that it could fit right on, but haven't been able to decide what to swap it for.
Breena, the Demagogue used to be in earlier versions of this deck. I swapped it out for Tymna the Weaver a few months ago. I think I swapped it out because there are 2 Breena decks in my meta that I play against semi-regularly, and I wanted to cut down on potential confusion with multi-Breenas out. Agreed though, I have had rotations in the past where I'd draw multiple cards. Might revisit this and swap Tymna back out, especially since Professional Face-Breaker fills a similar function as Tymna.
Fiery Emancipation is cool, but I'm a bit more inclined to play that in something like Tor Wauki the Younger, which is more pinger damage focused. The triple color pip investment is not my favorite for 3 color decks. Cool card though, I can definitely see the value as a rec.
Dismantling Wave and Wear / Tear - I've been running both of them in my 99 for this deck since its inception more or less. I like removal options that are versatile, and/or can hit multiple targets at once without necessarily being a wipe. I like both cards. Dismantling Wave feels helpful and relevant each time I've played it, & usually takes care of at least one value engine per board.
Death Tyrant is an admittedly funky inclusion. Definitely a more experimental and flex spot that I've changed around the most over the past 10 months. I do play in a pretty token heavy, go-wide meta. I frequently play against the likes of Jetmir, Nexus of Revels, Xyris, the Writhing Storm, Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver, Chatterfang, Squirrel General, and Krenko, Mob Boss. I've seen Death Tyrant pop off for the Wilhelt deck. I've tempered my expectations that it would do a fraction of that here. Definitely a spot I could try something else. Possible landing spot for Mardu Ascendancy?
Boros Charm is great. I liked it a lot in my Osgir, the Reconstructor deck when it was still built. I think between Teferi's Protection, Akroma's Will, and Flawless Maneuver I feel pretty decent on instant speed protection. Definitely something I've considered, especially with the other modal options. I love modal spells lol.
Ramp overall feels fairly solid. Admittedly, I don't like the Signets as much because of the activation cost. My deck is fairly low to the ground, and rarely have felt the need for it. Zhentarim Bandit and Captain Lannery Storm can really gas things up with 1-2 swings each. Each time I've played Sword of the Animist, I wasn't the biggest threat until a couple turns later, and most of my Basics are on board now.
Austere Command is a top end removal option I've gone back and forth on. I recently added Ruinous Ultimatum to the deck as my top end nuclear option. It sat in my hand during a game I played this past weekend where I had the 7 mana, but one of the mana generators was Liquimetal Torque lol. On paper, I like Ruinous Ultimatum as a problem solver, but am not a fan of the very specific color pip investment.
Segue to Liquimetal Torque - I run it in most of my decks as just a rock. There's been a couple of occasions where I was able to turn something into an artifact when a Vandalblast went off. Not often, but still cool to know the option is there.
Guild Artisan and Veteran Soldier - I honestly hadn't considered them at all. I don't attack with Isshin often. The times I do, he's wearing Boots or Greaves, Dolmen Gate or Iroas are on board, or I have some kind of protection in hand ready to go. I try not to risk him in combat if I don't have to.
Combat Calligrapher was in one of the earliest versions of the deck that had more "pillow" effects like Marchesa's Decree. I played it once or twice, but my opponents would swing with it a couple times to get their Inklings, then kill the Calligrapher so they could then attack me with the creatures I gave them. One of the aforementioned Breena decks in my meta runs Calligrapher. They have had similar things happen to them lmao.

Elves need pets. May I suggest throwing in Chatterfang, Squirrel General? You lose one elf card and pick up a million blockers so you don't need to martyr elves you would rather be tapping.
One last non-elf suggestion : Pili-Pala + Presence of Gond. Make as many elves as you can, tapping and untapping, thn tap any card like Elvish Archdruid and double your number elves by doing it again.
