Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

You only have a few actual creatures (17, not including the commanders) in the deck so I don't think Zendikar Resurgent and Guardian Project are worth it. Would an Emerald Medallion or other cost reducing spells be better. As for card draw Mentor of the Meek? You are playing green; there has to be something else.
You also only have a limited number of non-land permanents (34) and very little self mill and fetch lands. So I'm not sure if Eerie Ultimatum really deserves the spot. Your permanents are pretty powerful, so you may still want this. If you decide to keep it in you might want to look at Deadbridge Chant and more fetches or Evolving Wilds for your lands.
My only other thought is Entreat the Angels. You are going to draw cards during your second main phase; no miracle is feel bad.

You might want to consider Hour of Reckoning. I've got kind of the same build as yours and this card got me out of trouble so many times.

Cut down to 37 lands, I'd say. Probably...a Plains and a Forest?
You also need more removal. I'd recommend picking a few out of Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Nature's Chant, Return to Nature, Force of Vigor, Return to Dust. Those are single target creature/artifact/enchantment removal, mainly. You also need a bit of mass removal. I'd suggest something like Hour of Reckoning, Dusk / Dawn, Cleansing Nova, or Austere Command.

I think you'll be happier with Cryptolith Rite over most of your ramp. All the tokens you make can now be used for mana, which you can dump into Rhys or cast your big stuff.
Beastmaster Ascension is easy to activate the turn it comes into play with all your tokens. You can easily the end game in one swing with this card.
Mirror Entity is another good way to turn your token army into huge game-enders at instant speed. It also protects them from dying to damage by growing them out of range.
Hour of Reckoning can be a pretty one-sided board wipe against most decks, leaving you with your token army. Not to mention you can use your tokens to pay for it.
Second Harvest is amazing because it works at instant speed. Playing this at an opponent's end step before your turn is an easy way to steal a win.
This might seem to go against the game plan, but Skullclamp is a very easy way to draw an extra 2-6 cards each turn at the expense of a few tokens. Definitely worth including.
Mentor of the Meek is another excellent way to take advantage of your token creation to get more cards out of the deal.
Aura Shards takes advantage of so many creatures coming into play on your side and makes sure no artifacts and enchantments stay in play under your opponent's control without your permission.
Wellwisher will net you insane amounts of life very quickly with Rhys' elf tokens. Might be better than Soul Warden.
Epic Struggle would allow you to win against Pillowfort decks, provided you can protect it for a turn. Good combo with Teferi's Protection I guess.
Since your commander is an elf you could benefit from Wirewood Lodge. It also works well with something like Priest of Titania or Wellwisher. In the same vein as Priest of Titania, you could also probably use Wirewood Channeler.
In terms of cuts, I think Emmara Tandris, Oviya Pashiri, Parallel Evolution, Arcane Signet, Growing Ranks, and Curious Herd seem the least essential or least powerful for your deck. I think it would also be easy to find swaps for my suggestions with cards that do similar things. Let me know if you need more help with cuts or swaps.

Wirewood Lodge is a great way to take advantage of your Commander. Bonus with Llanowar Tribe.
Flawless Maneuver can also protect your Commander for free (and the rest of your board).
Cryptolith Rite seems perfect for your deck. Seems better than Song of Freyalise.
Hour of Reckoning is a great boardwipe for you. Pretty cheap to get your hands on too.
Divine Visitation seems absolutely insane in Commander. Seems better than Devout Invocation.
Priest of Titania is an expensive Llanowar Elves, but with your Comander out it already exceeds value and gets even better with just a few elves out. Bonus with Wirewood Lodge. I could see it over Palladium Myr.
Mirror Entity is yet another great finisher for your deck.
Fade into Antiquity could easily be Unravel the Aether, which costs one less and is an instant. Shuffling into the library is often just as effective as exiling.

Have you considered Hour of Reckoning? I dunno how heavily you plan this deck to rely on tokens, but it could be a nice asymmetric sweeper.
