Thank you for the suggestions SufferFromEDHD. After some consideration I decided to swap out Karametra's Acolyte for Questing Beast (I have a copy in my binders), and Utopia Sprawl for my copy of Birds of Paradise from my recently recycled Brokkos, Apex of Forever deck. I liked Utopia Sprawl since it dodged most of the removal that Mana Dorks are most susceptible to. Is it necessary for a mono-green deck? It's debatable, but I'm usually happy to draw into it early on.
I picked up Hall of Gemstone for about $5 a couple of years ago, and was surprised when I saw what its new price is. It's a good card, but I can understand why other players might omit it from their lists between the its effect and the price tag.
As for your other suggestions, I don't currently own copies of any of them, but will consider them a bit more. I'm planning on picking up cards for other decks in the next month or two, but had this deck as one of the lowest in my consideration for new upgrades aside from maybe a Silverback Elder

V1.1 - Cannibalizing other decks to flesh mine out
Karametra's Acolyte - Green devotion mana dork. Xenagos, God of Revels - Generally great, explosive charges Balefire Dragon - Psuedo-board clear, can pump with Xenagos, God of Revels. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - Psuedo-rap, board control Bow of Nylea - Attacking death touch tokens are way more threatening, can't chunk block them. Devotion to green. Cultivate - Ramp is good. Ranger's Path - Ramp is still good. Into the Wilds - Semi draw, semi ramp, top of library manipulation. Xenagos, the Reveler - Ramp, tokens, whats not to like? Death's Presence - A bit win more, but re-using the stats from stacked tokens can be great.

There we go!
First, do you really own all of these super-expensive cards? That's impressive. If not, it's still fine. Big green decks can use them, but there are so many cheaper ways to go nuts on mana.
Your mana curve is pretty low and you have tons of ramp. 32 lands still seems optimistic. I wouldn't normally go below 35, especially since quite a lot of your ramp is on mana dorks, which easily die to many things.
Spike Weaver makes me think of combos, but I couldn't figure out yours. Is there any?
I'm assuming Setessan Petitioner is in here as a human with an etb? It'll propably net you quite a lot of life, but how about cutting Petitioner and Feeder for these two:
What's more? There are five expensive fetches in here that aren't necessary at all. As you don't have any non-basic forests, it wouldn't change anything if they simply were forests. That would save you more than a hundred bucks from the budget. The chance of simply changing your deck order doesn't seem worth it, either.
That's it for me. The general list looks pretty good, so I'll be sure to leave an upvote.

I like the idea with three commanders! And all the card draw is nice would combo well with something like a Psychosis Crawler and maybe Karametra's Acolyte, while still staying budget. Thanks for the ideas!

Just a couple random things! I feel like Myriad Landscape is a decent card in a deck at the power level I suspect you play at, as is Blighted Woodland. You might like Nissa, Who Shakes the World, she is a really good way to generate huge mana for your Commander. Karametra's Acolyte can be significant ramp, Green tends to have high devotion. I always try to find space for Transmogrifying Wand in a mono-Green deck, I'd even run it in fairly competitive decks, nobody cares about a 2/4 in Commander, 3 uses is pretty impressive.

Did some research for cards for the deck. Here are some you might like:
And obviously, Nyxbloom Ancient is generally incredibly powerful.
What's more, how about Harvest Season?

Like the deck a lot, I think you could make a couple key additions: Firstly Allosaurus Shepherd because it´s just so good against blue decks. Secondly Chord of Calling is Green Suns (little less mana efficient but with convoke and can grap Heliod or Ballista) is great for a combo orriented decklist. Concordant Crossroads is also amazing, just hasting the team for g. It also allows you to add Temur Sabertooth, as it plus Crossroads + any dork that taps for a lot such as Karametra's Acolyte to make infinite mana. Also, (just an elves tribal suggestion here), I love Heritage Druid as a card in any elves based list.

Hi ShredderTTN86! Welcome to the world of EDH elves! When I first began playing what is now my Ezuri, Renegade Leader build six years ago, I made a lot of mistakes, learned from that process, and made what is now a pretty strong list. As such, it think I can offer some help!
To begin with, you said your goal is to offer and Elf synergy list. That was also my goal years ago, and I ran Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury as the commander, but what I found was that it was a weird hybrid between and elf deck and a stompy deck, and its not really possible to do both well. You can definitely make a stompy deck that uses elf dorks and such for mana ramp, but most of your other elven synergies (lords and such) would need to be jettisoned for stompy cards. With Marwyn, the Nurturer you can really do either. If you wanted to go this route you would have just enough elf dorks and token spells to build counters, would protect her with Heroic Intervention and Wrap in Vigor effects, and would use her to dump as many big, dumb green creatures onto the battlefield as possible.
If you want to run true elves synergy, however, you want to cut any stompy creature that doesn't enable your elves (ex. Craterhoof Behemoth makes it but Ghalta, Primal Hunger does not, lower your curve, replace as many lands with dorks as possible, and play lots of elf lords. Keep in mind, elf lords also help Marwyn tap for more mana! I notice that you have tons of artifacts here that do nothing for most of your elves excepting Marwyn. I would probably cut a lot of these and add more elf creatures for a strong synergy build. Super powerful ones like The Ozolith and the infinite mana combo enabling Umbral Mantle should remain (you should also add Sword of the Paruns, which can also enable infinite mana with Marwyn), but even other good cards like Gauntlet of Power should be cut because you can do it better with elves. I think what surprises me most here is the lack of dorks. Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, and Fyndhorn Elves are the backbone of any elf build and core to most stompy ones too. You also don't want to neglect Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Springbloom Druid, which can up your elf count while finding and ramping out lands for you. As far as big mana tappers go, Circle of Dreams Druid, Wirewood Channeler, and Elvish Guidance are better than Gauntlet of Power and Karametra's Acolyte (which isn't an elf). Running synergy means you also want to run a lot of lords, such as Elvish Champion, Elvish Clancaller, Imperious Perfect, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Canopy Tactician, Joraga Warcaller, and Cultivator of Blades will buff both Marwyn and all of your elves, while also putting counters on Marwyn (for a double buff in effect) and moving you towards running your opponents over.
If you are interested, the link to my Ezuri Elf deck is here- Elfpocalypse Now! (Under Construction). The primer isn't finished yet, but even the sections that are there on the commander and on breaking down the tribe might help with the synergy piece. If you decide after all you'd rather just do stompy, there are other great experts on tappedout like Kamerot that can help with that! I hope this helps a bit, and please let me know if you want any additional help or have any further questions!
