I'm not sure why Fyndhorn wasn't initially in here, but its as a good as a land in this deck.
While we already have most of the best tutoring green has to offer here, we added the last missing piece. One often overlooked aspect of Elves is that they have incredible toolbox properties, so being able to grab what we need cheaply is great. By cutting two forests we are down to 30 % land, which is what we would run in modern and is a great benchmark for lands. We've got lots of ways to grab our lands in the deck, so we shouldn't miss them too much.
One thing that is really hard to come by in mono-green is board wipes, so I'm really pleased that they reprinted this recently. In theory Praetor's Counsel is good because board wipes are the bane of our existence and this gives us a way to recover, but in reality if we get wiped we'll never be able to pay the mana cost. Its better to just play conservative and use Ezuri's 2nd ability to protect out pieces, and cards like Eladamri to protect him.
Yet another Elf Lord that pumps our whole team and gives us more ramp to boot? Give me more. As for Drove, we have other ways to make one thing big, and while this card has never been bad its never been exciting either. Jagged-Scar Archers gives us crucial anti-flying tech when we need it for one less mana, and while it lacks hexproof, we'll be happy of our opponents waste removal on archers and not one of our more important cards. Timberwatch Elf and Immaculate Magistrate give us flexibility in combat that is far better than the obvious threat drove represents.
While giving non-green decks a forest to enable a forest-walk kill is cute, this is somewhat situational, and we have lots of other ways to get through with the damage we need. Warmaster just such incredible value for the same mana that this change seems to be a no-brainer.
While offering is a good card, giving our opponents blockers just doesn't suit us in this deck. Ambush helps only us at instant speed with the creature type we want. Its an improvement on Elvish Promenade that absolutely deserves a spot.

I just wanted to point out, unfortunately you can't use Rhys the Redeemed because of the hybrid mana symbol. Your commander would need white in it's color identity. If you need a replacement for now, I would add back in one of the cards that lets you put an Elf Warrior token into play for each Elf you control. Honestly, I'd put both back in. Elvish Promenade Elven Ambush .
As far as cuts, I would go with Pride of the Perfect End-Raze Forerunners Elven Bow Tergrid's Shadow Cultivator of Blades Voice of the Woods Twinblade Assassins You can easily replace Elvish Rejuvenator with Wood Elves or Farhaven Elf
I have only recently built myself a Lathril deck. Good luck with this! It's really fun to play.

Difference is, Elvish Promenade has the Tribal supertype. Every card with a creature subtype has either the Creature type or the Tribal supertype. Arcane is for instants and sorceries, Shrine and Aura are enchantment subtypes, Locuses (Loci?) and Lairs are lands, and so on. It's just one of the definitions in the game--subtypes can only go on a card of the appropriate type or supertype. There's no mechanical reason they can't change that definiton later, but there's lots of balance and comprehension reasons to keep it the way it is.

Hey, nice budget version, less than $50 is impressive.
I recommend getting the Elven Empire Kaldheim Commander deck for $20-$25 since in the precon are several cards that can help your deck, most importantly Elvish Archdruid and Beast Whisperer , but also Elven Ambush and Elvish Promenade . There's some staples in the precon: Sol Ring , Arcane Signet and Command Tower .
