Sure! Your main idea is to get out a creature with power six or greater, from there your infinite mana sources are Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Priest of Titania or Circle of Dreams Druid combined with Staff of Domination, Umbral Mantle, Kogla, the Titan Ape/Hyrax Tower Scout, Ashaya, Soul of the Wild/Quirion Ranger or Scryb Ranger, Temur Sabertooth/Hyrax Tower Scout or Great Oak Guardian or Wirewood Symbiote. After making so much mana your outlets are... Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Relic Golem, Walking Ballista,Finale of Devastation. Also Temur Sabertooth can be used to trigger selvala's draw trigger if you have the larges creature on the field. A few interesting techs I've found are using Temur Sabertooth or Kogla, the Titan Ape and Eternal Witness to loop any instant or sorcery from your graveyard, and using Green Sun's Zenith on zero to get Dryad Arbor turn one as a dork if you really need it. Hope this helped!

I'm not the maker of this deck, but I do have a Selvala deck that is very similar. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds wins by essentially playing an undercosted high-power creature such as Phyrexian Dreadnought or Phyrexian Soulgorger to quickly generate a ton of mana, get cards like Quirion Ranger or Wirewood Symbiote into play with Temur Sabertooth to generate infinite mana through blinking the Wirewood Symbiote to use it's ability multiple times, and then tapping and untapping Selvala, and then either with through a Walking Ballista for infinite or infinitely bouncing something like Great Oak Guardian to give all your creatures +infinite/+infinite and swing for game.
As for this deck, I would highly recommend adding Concordant Crossroads, Craterhoof Behemoth, or even cards like Berserk. Concordant Crossroads is essential in decks like Selvala, where you can repeatedly bounce your own mana dorks to generate infinite mana, or even flood the board with creatures and quickly swing for game that turn. Deserted Temple is also nice for untapping things like Gaea's Cradle or Wirewood Lodge. Sylvan Tutor is also really nice as it adds more consistency.

So a first pass at changing this deck just from things I had on hand. The following cards were removed:
All of these creatures were dropped to help reinforce the +1/+1 theme that the deck has. All of these creatures tend to lean more toward a Token theme, which might have helped with powering Ezuri up, but that's about it.
Scytheclaw Not enough effect and doesnt reinforce the Counters theme.
Orochi Hatchery Has counters, but leans into the Tokens subtheme the orginal deck had, so off it goes.
Caller of the Pack It's a big beater. Doesnt help Ezuri build Counters, and again leans into the Tokens subtheme.
Snakeform Too little effect and is token based again.
Sword of Vengeance A cool bit of kit, and will be going into something else, but doesn't help the theme here.
Vivid Grove Too little effect for its slot. Replaced with a dual land.
Vivid Creek Same as above.

To build on what griffstick said, there are a number of two-creature combos with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ... and you can use the enchantment Defense of the Heart to tutor the entire combo into play.
Kiki + Great Oak Guardian is probably one of your better options--not only will it give you infinite Great Oka Gaurdians, it will allow you to swing with infinitely large enchantresses on the turn you execute the combo.

Grind, Great Oak Guardian seems like it could be interesting. I am low on flyer defense, so reach could be helpful too. Currently, I'm not sure if there's a card I would want to replace with it, but I'll think about it when I play the deck. I also have an Ashaya, Soul of the Wild deck that it would be great in.

Any thoughts about Great Oak Guardian ?
He can give your creatures pseudo vigilance, he can be a surprise flying blocker, and he offers a possible (low likelihood) combo with temur sabertooth, llanowar tribe, and nyxbloom ancient.

Surprised not to see Ashnod's Altar to help with your token generation blinkers.
Also Great Oak Guardian and Llanowar Tribe go inf with your commander. Shared Summons is playable.
Also Fiend Hunter sounds good, i think if you stack the triggers right with multiple blinks you can exile opponents creatures permanently.
Cheers and have fun!!

Just some thoughts...
Vorrac Battlehorns makes lathril unblockable. Also Rancor seems good, and maybe you want Lightning greaves or swiftfoor boots.
Great Oak Guardian untaps all your elves so you can use ability again.
I like Evolutionary Leap to get value in case opponents board wipe. And it makes me want to run Seedguide Ash .
Beast Within is worth running.
Cheers and have fun
