i know this is like a few years late but i'm new to the format and just now saw this and i think these are some good replacements/additions Village Rites instead of Altar's Reap (not Costly Plunder tho plunder is good) cheaper same speed /n Cast Down instead of Eyeblight's Ending or Victim of Night because at most Cast Down wont hit 1 creature whereas Eyeblight's Ending and Victim of Night might straight up whiff against some decks Sign in Blood instead of Victim of Night because it can finish a game and you're playing all of 2 lands that dont produce black mana you might want to shove in a Gurmag Angler somewhere it's just on color and theme

Hey, nice start. I'm also very excited about Lathril as a new Elf Commander and I'm upgrading the precon on a budget.
Consider cutting some lands for more one drop mana Elves? One drop mana Elves are an advantage that Elves have and the precon lacks them. The idea is one drop mana Elves can replace some lands since they can make mana while also adding the total count of Elves. 38 lands is really too much land for Elves thus consider cutting some Swamps?
- Elves of Deep Shadow : can make black mana.
- Llanowar Elves
- Fyndhorn Elves
- Arbor Elf
- Birchlore Rangers : can make black mana, good mana ability with Elf tokens since any two tokens can be tapped even the turn they're created to make mana.
- Gnarlroot Trapper
Some other cards, less than $1 each, to consider for upgrades and most can increase Elf tribal synergy:
- Immaculate Magistrate --> Grizzled Outrider
- Elvish Guidance --> Ravenous Lindwurm
- Wirewood Herald --> Filigree Familiar
- Copperhorn Scout --> Elderleaf Mentor
- Skemfar Avenger --> Koma's Faithful
- Oakhame Adversary --> Elderleaf Mentor
- Eyeblight's Ending --> Briarblade Adept
- Llanowar Visionary --> Joraga Visionary
- Llanowar Wastes --> Foul Orchard
- Woodland Chasm --> Golgari Guildgate
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice deck! I like the take. Why Eyeblight's Ending though? Also, what is it you transmute the dimir guy for? The other three drop Lili seems like it would be a really solid fit in this deck too.

I used to run a very similar deck, but in my experience Maralen is just too fragile. Expunge , Murder , Reckless Spite , Price of Fame , Murderous Cut , Ashes to Ashes , Ob Nixilis's Cruelty , Force of Despair , Never/Return , Sever the Bloodline , Silence the Believers , Cannibalize seem to me to be vastly preferable to Dash Hopes , Eyeblight's Ending , Rend Flesh , Kiku's Shadow , Withering Boon . Does Mindcrank even do anything here without Bloodchief Ascension ?

Now, this isn't my attempt to be harsh, just to inform. I had a harsh reality when I, in my head thought that my Teysa deck was cEDH when I was horribly wrong and all I had was a modular/cluttered combo deck.
There's a bunch of other cards I think you should include, but I don't want you to have to revamp your whole deck, so here are my suggestions:

Elves loses a lot of explosiveness without the 1 cmc mana dorks; you really need to play them. Not only do they let you cast your bigger threats earlier, but they also let you flood the board with creatures faster, which works well with your payoffs ( Shaman of the Pack , Poison-Tip Archer , and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen benefit from large boards, Lys Alana Huntmaster benefits from having lots of mana to cast creatures).
Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , and Elves of Deep Shadow (to help out the black splash) are all inexpensive. I'd cut a mixture of Eyeblight's Ending , Prowess of the Fair , and Gilt-Leaf Ambush to make room for at least 10 of those cards. You can even cut 2 or 3 lands if you have 12 or so mana dorks--competitive Elves decks play 18 lands and still make enough mana to cast their entire hand by turn 3. I'd also recommend you play Elvish Visionary ; like Silvergill Adept in Merfolk, it's one of the cards that keeps the fuel pumping and is just really good in general.
