hey! i love elementals and love seeing your list :) if i may suggest a few changes, you seem to be pretty light on creatures for a tribal deck? 26 isn't even a third of your deck! so 1/3 of the time the only creature you'll have available is your commander..... may i suggest a few?
Nevermaker is a fantastic catch-all removal creature. not only does it hit most permanent types, it also wastes opponents' next draw.
Omnath, Locus of the Roil is a huge boon to this deck, not only because he specifically cares about elementals, but also because he can draw you cards! he's everything you could want from a card.
it may not seem impressive, but Wispmare is incredible value on a card, as you can cast it for a single . then you can recurr it for more value later! i would recommend Ingot Chewer for the samw reason.
do notice that i like the lorwyn block a lot.....
i would definitely pick up the new Maskwood Nexus from kaldheim for any tribal deck!! especially since i see you don't run 25 elementals.
try to remove some of your spells with super specific mana costs. it sucks to try to cast Kaya's Wrath in a 5-color deck. even regular Wrath of God would be better.... or Fumigate if what you care about is the life gain, but that would increase your overall deck cmc, which is already 3.7.... yikes!
well i hope that whatever you decide to do, you enjoy playing this deck! let me know how it fares at ypur kitchen table! :)

You might like these:
Ivy Lane Denizen (causes Lathril and your # of elves to grow exponentially each time Lathril hits an opp)
Fallen Ideal (similar to denizen. sac your tokens right before lathril hits to deal a ton more damage and make twice as many tokens as you had before)
Coat of Arms
Song of Freyalise
Return of the Wildspeaker
Patron of the Orochi

I really like this build. There are some ideas for cards you might try out:
Sylvan Advocate: Is a very powerful anthem with Ashaya.
Tireless Tracker: Great Landfall trigger, and an insane draw engine here.
Ulvenwald Hydra: Will be veeery Big here.

Neat concept. These cards might be worth considering: Spark Double, Chakram Retriever, Sakashima the Impostor, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, Glimpse of Nature, Shared Summons, Cryptolith Rite, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Llanowar Mentor, Wirewood Channeler (errata says he's a druid now!), Sword of the Paruns, Staff of Domination, Concordant Crossroads, Quest for Renewal, Patron of the Orochi, Distant Melody

Epicurus, thank so much for all the suggestions.
It's funny, I had just cut a few of the cards you are suggesting. I pulled Cryptolith Rite to make room for a bit more removal. I also recently cut Triumph of the Hordes in place of other overrun effects. I run it in a number of decks. The problem I run into is find it as a dead card unless the board state is right, where other overrun effects can be used even if your not complete finishing another player off and need to draw to more board power. If you can't poison out all three players (Five 2/2's need to get through to each player), it's a bit of a waste. I'm still on hte fence aobut pulling it, but that was my reasoning from past experience.
I know you mentioned Wrath of God and Blasphemous Act, but I've found even in wider decks, sometimes you just have to wipe the board and work to rebuild along with everyone else. Do I need both, possibly not. Goblin Bombardment can be a quick finisher of a third player if you've only got enough on board for two. It is situational and I have considered cutting it, so it's good to hear someone else thinking along the same lines.
Runic Armasaur is just great card draw at the 3 spot. I'm definitely open to other card draw suggestions, but I'd be looking for them in a similar CMC.
I definitely hear what you are saying on Kamahl, Heart of Krosa and tend to agree that it's a bit costly to get it going. I do have some 7 drops in the deck so that would really what I'd be looking to replace if it would seem to add enough value. I also tend to agree with you on Prava of the Steel Legion. At only 3 cmc, it adds a lot of value to my game plan and may be worth replacing a simpler anthem effect I have.
I'd love to check out your deck if you want to post a link in the comments here.

For what it's worth, I never build a green go-wide deck without Cryptolith Rite and Champion of Lambholt. The former I actually try to fit into any deck I build with green in the identity, and the later is a major wincon.
Also, I just recently built a token deck with Kamahl, Heart of Krosa and Prava of the Steel Legion as partner commanders. Kamahl costs a lot more to get out than what it might help in this deck, but Prava is actually more effective than you might think (Defense boost means more survivors after attacking wide), and it's cat tribal to boot.
And finally, Triumph of the Hordes.
As for cuts, it's hard to say because I'm not the one playing the deck. From an outside perspective, it seems like Goblin Bombardment, Runic Armasaur and the two board wipes (Wrath of God & Blasphemous Act) don't aid your goal. All are incredibly useful cards, but I wouldn't put them in here if this was my deck.
That's all I got. Hope it helps!
