I feel like you skipped over a whole slew of the development of Enchantress as an archetype and therefore presented it as being a deck in search of a win con before Theros. It has always been tier 2 jank in legacy, but it was powerful enough to take occasional large tournament wins.
You mentioned Urza's block and mention the two cards with "Enchantress" in their name but not Serra's Sanctum or Replenish. The latter two actually make it into competitive eternal decks and Yavimaya Enchantress does not.
The Sanctum in particular is extremely important to the way the deck developed. The plan in many eternal enchantress decks is legitimately to hardcast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. This still takes until turn 5 or 6 and is durdly as hell for the format, but all that mana from the Sanctum makes it a legitimate plan. Alternatively the win condition in many others is to plop down a Sigil of the Empty Throne and go wide with 4/4 angels. I even have a friend who ran Words of War as a wincon, again greatly aided by the Sanctum.
The "dig to the combo" you mention that is actually played is Helm/RIP and is the third commonly played wincon. And I'm not sure I agree with the assessment that it defies expectations, or should be abandoned in favor of playing blue. At its heart Enchantress as an archetype is GWx control and the wincon can be almost anything.
Wincons from Theros were never even added to eternal Enchantress, they kept the old wincons and added at most a few Eidolon of Blossoms and a few Doomwake Giant. The return to Theros did give us Destiny Spinner who is a wincon that is run. MH2 also had a large impact on eternal Enchantress by adding Sythis, Harvest's Hand and Sanctum Weaver.
This isn't to say that there haven't been strong enchantments coming out recently. Or that it isn't nice that they are supporting the archetype to an extent that a standard deck can be made out of it. It is just that if one wants to talk about the evolution of the archetype it should be done primarily in the context of competitive eternal formats where it will remain unchanged until a card changes the archetype. With mentions of rotating and casual formats to show the archetype across the whole of Magic.

Your deck is way too heavy, and you have alot of 1s and 2s of cards.
For starters I'd take out
Doomwake Giant - he's a weak boardwipe at best but with as heavy as this deck is you won't have enough Enchantments to kill anything of real value
Pharika, God of Affliction It won't be a creature most games and it's 5 Mana for himself and 1 Enchantment token
Eidolon of Blossoms its just too much Mana. In modern games can be over as soon as turn 4 and you won't have time to get any value out of him. I'd add more copies of Sythis, Harvest's Hand it's much cheaper and much easier to get more value.
Underworld Coinsmith just doesn't have enough time to utilize him to give you enough value. This is what I'd take out for starters. Now I'd move these cards to your sideboard as they aren't needed/used every game. Destiny Spinner Seal of Primordium

Nice deck : ) I guess my only question is, what do you want to do as a wincon? There are a lot of options to go infinite if you want to, but I completely understand if you don't. But things like Fauna Shaman or Green Sun's Zenith or Vivien, Monsters' Advocate can really make creature based combos very reliable.
Another take would be to go the enchantress route. Green has a lot of ways to get incidental card draw off enchantments, like Rune of Might and Kenrith's Transformation. Those together with Argothian Enchantress or other enchantresses, including Setessan Champion and Eidolon of Blossoms can be a very effective draw engine in green. And enchantress decks love Arasta of the Endless Web who can really help with flying problems. Everyone feeds her : ) No one respects spiders.
But at the same time, enchantress might also make it less of an elf deck. So, I guess, what are you most interested in doing with the deck? It looks like a really good elf combat deck as is, it could be powered up by infinites like Umbral Mantle or Quirion Ranger and Ashaya, Soul of the Wild or Staff of Domination to power a Wren's Run Packmaster or Umbral Mantle pump win. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is also a great mana outlet. But it all depends what you want to play I guess : )

Thanks for the upvote and comment :)
This deck has worked out good so far. I dont have other decks that play this fast (avg. cmc 2.32 + lots of draw), so it has been a really nice addition to my collection atleast. The deck has been able to do what it was ment to do, but I havent won any games yet.
A couple of matches, I was targeted a lot by stronger decks with lots of removal, but the other day I had a game with more equally powered decks and had a good winning chance. I think I would have won if I had notices the bad synergy in the deck and fixed it. You see, playing Brilliant Restoration with 20 cards in library, and Eidolon of Blossoms + 25 other enchantments in the grave, loses the game cause of draw out :( Otherwise, that would have been a most glorious victory.
All in all, Im quite happy with it :)
(PS: this negative synergy can also trigger with Setessan Champion, but is much less likely cause she isnt an enchantment)

Hi there friend, nice deck brew! I really love the lich theme.
I have a few recomendations for you:
-Selenia, Dark Angel could help you get to the lich state of no life.
-Greater Auramancy can be a good protection.
-Thalia, Heretic Cathar to slow your opponents.
I'm brewing a Myrkul enchantress deck, when it's up in tappedout it would be great to hear your suggestions.
See you :)

Have you thought about Calix, Destiny's Hand?
