Even if you don't go all in on Elves, I would think you'll have enough elves to make Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania solid. There is also Fyndhorn Elves if you want another 1 drop elf dork, they are good creatures. Maybe Wirewood Channeler? There are plenty of elves that like to have access to either lots of mana or lots of other elves, stuff like Joraga Warcaller and Ezuri, Renegade Leader can soak up mana, Immaculate Magistrate can pump up a Warcaller or something else you want big, Wellwisher might like Alchemist or Blossoming Bogbeast.
I suspect if you're going to run Alchemist you might as well look at Primal Command as well, with Alchemist out it's 5 mana to get 7 mana (or more if you gained other life) and you tutor up any creature you want, which sounds good. It's also able to get rid of problematic permanents, or deal with a graveyard, and it's not like tutoring up a creature is ever a bad effect. I think it's underplayed in decks that care about it's effects (it's an incredibly versatile utility card) and run enough ramp that they can cast it on time or earlier.
Overrun is solid, but Overwhelming Stampede can be much better if you want an upgrade. There is also the Bogbeast and Ezrui I mentioned above, I think each is better in it's own ways, but I will say Overrun can still surprise people. There is also Triumph of the Hordes, Infect and trample are really scary if you've got a few creatures out. There is also Craterhoof Behemoth, but you do want a really wide board before it comes out, so I find Overwhelming Stampede or Pathbreaker Ibex are technically superior cards, my Green decks tend to go tall.
Hopefully these suggestions aren't too competitive leaning, it's fun to play casual games, to use cards you don't always use.

Okay so I'm new to deckbuilding, especially for EDH so I'm just wondering if anyone has any useful/practical suggestions for this deck. I thought Abomination of Llanowar was a cool card, so I wanted to build around that concept of getting a lot of elves onto the field and my graveyard to really boost its power and toughness.
One thing I'll mention is that, with the exception of cards that are already present in the deck, I don't want to spend more then $3-5 on a single card. So keeping all of this in mind, any suggestions?
Commander: - Abomination of Llanowar
Creatures: - Elvish Eulogist - Elvish Archdruid - Imperious Perfect - Lys Alana Huntmaster - Immaculate Magistrate - Marwyn, the Nurturer - Elvish Visionary - Shaman of the Pack - Lathril, Blade of the Elves - Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen - Beast Whisperer - Timberwatch Elf - Elvish Mystic - Canopy Tactician - Poison-Tip Archer - Skemfar Avenger - Skemfar Shadowsage - Wolverine Riders - Ruthless Winnower - Wellwisher - Golgari Findbroker - Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Rhys the Exiled - Nightshade Harvester - Gilt-Leaf Winnower - Elvish Doomsayer - Storrev, Devkarin Lich - Nadier's Nightblade - Fyndhorn Elves - Llanowar Elves
Sorcery: - Cultivate - Rampant Growth - Eyeblight Massacre - Shamanic Revelation - Casualties of War - Dig Up - Victimize - Sign in Blood - Spark Harvest - Diabolic Tutor - Deadly Brew - Bone Shards - Elvish Promenade
Lands: - Evolving Wilds - Command Tower - Path of Ancestry - Llanowar Wastes - Jungle Hollow - Skemfar Elderhall - Golgari Guildgate - Tainted Wood - Necroblossom Snarl - Myriad Landscape - Foul Orchard - Darkmoss Bridge - Forest x13 - Swamp x13

The Ozolith to recycle your +1/+1's.
You have enough mana ramp to make Decree of Savagery a possible win con.
Vastwood Surge is ramp with more counters.
As for what to take out... (I hate trying to decide) but some standouts would be
- - Avenger of Zendikar plant specific counters
- - Kura, the Boundless Sky token not counters
- - The Tarrasque Big green stompy but that's all
- - Life and Limb makes all your critters base 1/1 with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild widens your army but brings down the height
That's my 2 cents worth. Hope it helps :)

If you're looking to speed the deck up, I'd consider adding: Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl, Boreal Druid, Elvish Pioneer and the all-mighty Deathrite Shaman. For those, I'd look at cutting: Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, Elfhame Druid, Farhaven Elf, Jaspera Sentinel, Llanowar Visionary, and Springbloom Druid. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is an amazing card, just not sure if it belongs here, maybe replace it with Elvish Guidance. There's also always Heritage Druid,
And hey, if you've got a Gaea's Cradle, Crop Rotation is a must (and its slower cousin, Sylvan Scrying, which also makes Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx a good add. More ($$$$) lands to consider would be: Cavern of Souls and Yavimaya Hollow. Other utility lands you might want to check out would be: Emergence Zone, Nurturing Peatland, Castle Garenbrig, and Wirewood Lodge.
For card advantage, yeah I agree that Glimpse of Nature and Oakhame Adversary are good options, along with Sylvan Library, Necropotence, and Dark Confidant if you've got the $$ and looking to get as close to 100% as possible. Regal Force is a non-elf that's essential in elf decks. Some other options would be: Pact of the Serpent and Elvish Visionary. In terms of tutors, definitely consider: Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, and maybe even Woodland Bellower and Fauna Shaman. Decks closer to CEDH would probably include: Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, and Survival of the Fittest. Also, Eternal Witness might be too good to not include, along with Noxious Revival. Patriarch's Bidding is a cheaper Haunting Voyage.
Hope this helps! Happy brewing
