Hey, I think you've nailed Gruul Elves with the budget that you have, well done.
There aren't a lot of reasons to want to play red with Elves, but you have them: Assault, Rhythm, Purphoros, Animosity and Bloodbraid. Blood Moon is also very powerful in Commander. Comet Storm can be a win condition with infinite green mana.
You could cut a few lands such as Valley, Tranquil, Landscape, Verge for some more low CMC ramp sources:
Some other changes to consider:
- Blood Moon --> Experimental Frenzy
- Staff of Domination --> Gilded Lotus
- Beastmaster Ascension --> Door of Destinies
- Elvish Warmaster --> Elvish Vanguard
- Toski, Bearer of Secrets --> Wildest Dreams
- Comet Storm --> Gaea's Herald
- Fire-Lit Thicket --> Temple of Abandon
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you have some amazing cards here Cradle, Hollow and Shepherd, but then there's all the creature removal spells, Sundail and Majesty, etc. which are subpar. Spells such as Aggressive Instinct don't interact with a Planeswalker Commander and most Elves have low power which is not what you want when you want a creature with high power for removal. Lots of cards that rely on a creature you control to have high power are not what you want with Elves.
My suggestions will be for Elf upgrades and some additional mana sinks to better use the ramp that Elves and Freyalise can make. It's already been suggested, but max out on all the one drop mana Elves as these are unique to Elves and a big reason to want to play the tribe.
- Elvish Mystic --> Aggressive Instinct
- Fyndhorn Elves --> Rabid Bite
- Heritage Druid --> Ram Through
- Boreal Druid --> Clear Shot
- Marwyn, the Nurturer --> Fyndhorn Elder
- Elvish Harbinger --> Drove of Elves
- Numa, Joraga Chieftain --> Elf Replica
- Quirion Ranger --> Ezuri's Archers
- Wirewood Symbiote --> Skyshroud Ranger
- Wirewood Herald --> Naturalize
- Eternal Witness --> Wren's Run Vanquisher
- Llanowar Tribe --> Greenweaver Druid
- Reclamation Sage --> Elvish Scrapper
Harbinger is an Elf tutor. Numa is a mana sink. Marwyn grows when you create a mana Elf with Freyalise. Ranger + Symbiote lets you bounce Ranger + Forest to untap an Elf such as Archdruid to make a lot of green mana. Ezuri and Shepherd are your best mana sinks, but consider others?
- Green Sun's Zenith --> Colossal Majesty
- Leyline of Abundance --> Door of Destinies
- Chord of Calling --> Seer's Sundial
- Craterhoof Behemoth --> Soul's Majesty
Zenith and Chord are tutors to use ramp with that can get Ezuri or Craterhoof or any other creature putting it onto the battlefield.
Some other cards to consider cutting for better options:
- Broken Bond
- Gleeful Sabotage
- Might of the Masses
- Garruk's Uprising
- Desert Twister
Good luck with your deck.

What’s the difference between “Tutors for Tribal Cards” and “Tutors by Creature Type”? All the cards from the former are included in the latter, so why not just combine them into one or the other?
Also, I’d add the Harbingers, Boggart Harbinger, Elvish Harbinger, Faerie Harbinger, Flamekin Harbinger, Giant Harbinger, Kithkin Harbinger, Merrow Harbinger, and Treefolk Harbinger.
Also, my search for Harbingers turned up Nahiri, the Harbinger, which goes in “Notable For: Jumping Through Hoops,” and Yanling's Harbinger, which brings up the Planeswalker Deck tutors. Sure, people are unlikely to run them, but some might.
I’d also like to suggest a category: Combo Tutors. These are the ones that are part of a combo AND search for another one of the pieces. Ones that come to mind are Godo, Bandit Warlord and Forerunner of the Empire. Godo tutors for Helm of the Host, which he goes infinite with, and Forerunner tutors for Polyraptor, and from then you simply need to give Forerunner indestructible and then play Polyraptor to go infinite with.
Lastly, I’d suggest changing “Tutors to Graveyard” to “Tutors w/ Graveyard Synergies,” so you can include cards like Mausoleum Secrets, Fiend Artisan and Diabolic Intent, which interact with the grave while not tutoring TO the grave. Dimir House Guard would still go here, since his tutor effect merely discards him, he IS a sac outlet, and many graveyard deck will still desire him for it.

Argothian Elder This feels too awkward for mana fixing and I can't remember why it's there.
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen This is one of two sources of lifegain, a lord, and... maybe not good enough?
Elvish Harbinger I'm not sure I need this many tutors, and it works poorly with poacher. Oth, tutor all color manadork ain't bad.
Elvish Visionary I'm guessing there's better versions at higher cmc now, but I may still want this one.
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed I really just want to play her a time or three and see if she works. She's very mana hungry all around though.
Reveille Squad This may just be win-more, and has to be telegraphed before attackers are declared
Timberwatch Elf Imaculate magistrate is a better version of this card, but having both has made the difference before
Wirewood Channeler This is the worst version of this effect I have, but does tap for any color.
Aura Shards This card is gross bonkers... BUUUUTTTT i only have so many, and this may be the deck that needs it LEAST?
Selesnya Signet This and sol ring are my only mana rocks... if I'm running no others, I probably don't need this one.
Reito Lantern If it's unclear, this is graveyard hate and ETB self tuck. It's... it's cute. I don't know if it's good. But it may be cute enough to keep.
