If you want more of a buff voltron Lathril maybe switch out Incubation Druid and Heedless One for Immaculate Magistrate and Timberwatch Elf Those guys also can go off twice per turn with Copperhorn Scout

I also built a Rhys deck (on a budget though) na na na na, hey hey, goodbye(overwhelming tokens) here's a little bit of what I have learned playing it
Biowaste Blob can get big fast with your token doubling
Dauntless Escort has saved me many a time from a board wipe
I also like using Glare of Subdual to tap down my opponent's creatures with my tokens
Citywide Bust can harm your opponents while leaving you practically untouched
Good Luck in your war

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.

Hey, well done with your upgrade of the Lathril precon.
Some changes to consider by close to matching price of card to add with card to cut:
- Ezuri, Renegade Leader --> Selvala, Heart of the Wilds
- Chord of Calling --> Turntimber Symbiosis
- Elvish Harbinger --> Collected Company
- Priest of Titania --> Joraga Treespeaker
- Quest for Renewal --> Obelisk of Urd
- Beastmaster Ascension --> Door of Destinies
- Shamanic Revelation --> Sylvan Messenger
- Immaculate Magistrate --> Lys Alana Huntmaster
- Copperhorn Scout --> Bounty of Skemfar
- Golgari Charm --> Revive
- Twilight Mire --> Reliquary Tower
- Unclaimed Territory --> Grim Backwoods
Good luck with your deck.

Thanks multimedia! Everything you're saying makes sense about Immaculate Magistrate , Timberwatch Elf , Birchlore Rangers and Nullmage Shepherd , I just struggled to find room in the deck to keep them. Their effects all feel a bit conditional based on having a lot of elves on the field, at which point I'm already doing well and ready to swing in for big beats so they almost feel like win-more cards. I'm going to keep them in mind though, if I can find things that aren't performing as well that I want to take out.
Smart thinking on your tutor and Elves of Deep Shadow suggestions. Adding them!

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon.
Lathril + Immaculate Magistrate + Copperhorn Scout combo scales to make Lathril bigger each turn you attack which can create more Elves each time and it lets you use Lathril's tap ability with all the Elves she just created after combat. Timberwatch Elf can replace Magi, but the pump goes away at end of turn. Marwyn, the Nurturer can make a lot of green mana with Magi/Timberwatch + Scout to use with a mana sink such as Ezuri. Scout's ability to untap all other creatures you control whether they attacked or not is powerful with big mana producers and a mana sink. Magi + Joraga Warcaller is another good interaction to make all Elves huge.
Birchlore Rangers has impressed me because of his interaction with Elf tokens. Able to tap pairs of them to make mana the turn they're created which is nice to cast instant speed spells or pay activations such as Ezuri's regenerate and Miara's draw when you're tapped out. It's also helpful that Elves can make green or black mana. Nullmage Shepherd has also impressed for some of the same reasons. These tapping effects along with other Elves who tap such as Lathril and Archdruid, etc. become even better with a repeatable way to untap all Elves on each opponent's turn such as Seedborn Muse and Quest for Renewal .
Instant creature tutors are helpful especially Chord of Calling with Elf tokens, but also Shared Summons which can put two Elves into your hand. Elves of Deep Shadow is in my opinion the best one drop mana Elf with Lathril because he's reliable ramp to cast her without needing a black source from a land.
