been thinking alot how to improve it, decide to change some things:
added Leyline Prowler x4, to help me with the mana, also the lifelink and deathtouth may make them a good target to bulk with scavenge.
cut of the deck the Reaper of the Wilds x4 still love the card, but i think its not the best option.
Deadbridge Goliath didnt enter the deck , still thinking a wat to put it without making the mana curve to high ( will love some advice, who knows maybe they are not that neccesary now), same with Creakwood Liege
not shure what is better Golgari Charm can do lot of things and regenerate my creatures, Treasured Find return any card from the graveyard. Right now added the Golgaris, i think they have more uses. I may be wrong.
Also ive been reading all the help and all the advices from everyone and i appreciate it alot !. There where some awesome ideas on how to improve the deck, sadly, right now, i have no acces to all of those cards, like Death's Shadow for example. still thnks everyne that helped me.
All the other cards that i can add are in the Maybe tab. there are cards like Korozda Guildmage and Glowspore Shaman that i think there are awesome but i dont know if they fit in the deck. maybe i can add Glowspore Shaman and Treasured Find together.
also Jarad's Orders is awesome but will make my mana curve high i think
Help is always needed and welcomed, all advices will be read and appreciated alot :)

I'm unsure what direction you are planning as you seem to spread out a bit. Here is my suggestion though.
Focus on aristocrats and tokens(preferably saprolings))
Saprolings synergies if you want Psychotrope Thallid
Toski, Bearer of Secrets maybe for additional card draw
Wincon ideas Aristocrats like Blood Artist Overwhelming Stampede Pathbreaker Ibex Yedora, Grave Gardener combo. I don't remember what the other pieces are atm. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth + Life and Limb + way to profit off of every land dying or at least get ahead.

Since you're in casual, there's a lot of heavy hitting cards you could add (budget permitting). Doubling Season improves the turnaround rate of spore counters and gets you more tokens, although it is itself expensive. Something cheaper with proliferate like Evolution Sage could accomplish a similar goal. Aura Shards is a potent alternative to single-use Naturalizes for Selesnya, with Nullmage Shepherd being a more budget pick. Skullclamp is an insane draw engine if you keep your tokens at 1 toughness. Or if you don't want to, Intangible Virtue can stack with Sporecrown Thallids to get out of hand quickly. As far as creating tokens, there's Aura Mutation, Dreampod Druid, Fungal Sprouting, Korozda Guildmage, Saproling Migration, Thelonite Hermit, and the powerful lord Tendershoot Dryad. If you want generically good Golgari removal, cards like Assassin's Trophy and Fatal Push tend to see a lot of play. Personally, I like Crippling Fear for tribal decks and Tragic Slip for decks with sacrifice synergy. Speaking of sacrifices, I know from experience in commander that both Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and Ghave, Guru of Spores make for nasty combos with Mycoloth. Such a strategy would also make creatures like Tukatongue Thallid more valuable than spell counterparts like Sprout or Fungal Infection.

Hey, welcome kingc0rn!
I see what you're saying. I probably wouldn't use Hatred in particular, due to the mana cost (also the potential feel-bads of removal in response). A couple more solid options would probably be Boon of Boseiju, or even Vines of Vastwood, which doubles as protection (and triples as a counterspell for auras, haha).
Interesting idea! I'll consider these.
Welcome back killer_eye!
This is probably something I should add in to my description, since I've had someone else wondering that exact thing.
In a situation where you can filter through your deck, but you have zero mana available, you can:
Feel free to let me know, anyone, if there's another line I'm missing!

darklord1135, so I ended up not finding a spot for it, simply because Korozda Guildmage, Feed the Pack, and Verdant Sun's Avatar care about toughness. There aren't a lot of cards that reward you for having a high power creature without punishing you for it also having a high toughness, so it pushes the deck in the direction of making sure that all the big creatures have big power AND big toughness. Thanks again for the recommendation! I still wish it could have worked out in the end, but c'est la vie!

Hey, one drop green mana Elves are really good, a big reason to play Elves. They aren't just ramp with Lathril they're also fuel for her activated ability when you don't need them for ramp and lets you get more Elves onto the battlefield quicker.
- Elves of Deep Shadow: can tap for black mana which is helpful with a lot of Forests.
- Fyndhorn Elves
- Elvish Mystic
- Llanowar Elves
- Arbor Elf: combos with Elvish Guidance when it's enchanted to a Forest.
- Birchlore Rangers: lets you tap Elf tokens the turn they're created to make mana, even black mana.
Staff of Domination does everything as a mana sink for Elves and can be an enabler for Lathril to be a win condition. With Staff you first make infinite green mana by tapping and untapping one of Archdruid, Marwyn(with 5 or more power), Priest of Titania, Circle or Wirewood Channeler. When you have infinite green mana then Staff is the mana sink to draw and cast enough Elves to control 10 or more. When you have 10 or more Elves then Staff can be the mana sink to repeatedly untap Lathril and each one the 10 Elves as the win condition.
Quest for Renewal is another enabler for Lathril and 10 Elves to be win condition. When Quest has four counters which is not difficult especially with more mana Elves, you can untap all creatures you control during each opponents turn. With Lathril each opponent loses 10 life on each player's turn, resulting in all opponents losing 40 life in one cycle of all player's turns if you have three opponents.
Chord of Calling is a helpful instant creature tutor since can tap Elves to help to pay for it's convoke, with enough Elves it's a free spell to cast and it puts the creature you search for onto the battlefield. It has nice interaction with Elf tokens since can tap them to convoke the turn they're created. With Chord get Ezuri or Miara, Thorn of the Glade in response to removal, get Archdruid so you can tap him on your turn, get Magistrate so you can tap her on your next turn, get Varragoth so you can attack with him on your next turn, etc.
Patriarch's Bidding is among the most powerful tribal spells for quick recovery. For five mana it reanimates all Elves in your graveyard. Play a Regrowth just to have another potential Chord or Bidding or recur any other card.
An area to consider improving to help with competitiveness is the manabase by upgrading to Golgari dual lands that ETB untapped.
- Undergrowth Stadium --> Foul Orchard
- Llanowar Wastes --> Golgari Guildgate
- Overgrown Tomb --> Jungle Hollow
- Unclaimed Territory --> Darkmoss Bridge
- Twilight Mire --> Cabal Stronghold
- Woodland Cemetery --> Skemfar Elderhall
Cabal Stronghold only works with basic Swamps and there's only 9 here which is not enough to really get much if any ramp making it consistently only a colorless source of mana.
Some cards to consider cutting: Blightbeetle, Mana Bloom, Terramorph, Serpent's Soul-Jar, Return Upon the Tide, Masked Admirers, Wild Pair, Golgari Guildmage, Korozda Guildmage, Rhys the Exiled, Blanchwood Armor, Dowsing Dagger Flip, Harvest Season
If Blightbeetle is tech in your playgroup than nice, but if it's not then it looks out of place. Most if not all mana ramp sources can come from actual Elves instead of other sources like Mana Bloom or land ramp like Terramorph. I would even play one drop mana Elf or Farhaven Elf over Cultivate or Harvest Season.
Serpent's Soul-Jar is not a good card, exiling an Elf when it dies is not a may you have to do it and hoping to be able to cast many Elves later, one at a time with Jar is not going to consistently happen. Instead most if not all your exiled Elves will be stuck in exile for the rest of the game because Jar will be destroyed or removed another way.
Good luck with your deck.

I ran Jarad for quite a while in my Necrotic Ooze deck. The main plan is to fill the yard with a ton of creatures off cards like Satyr Wayfinder , sacrifice them with Hell's Caretaker to bring back huge threats, and/or use Ooze plus strong activated abilities like Avatar of Woe 's and the untap from Devoted Druid to amass an advantage. Before going in a more combo-heavy direction, I had Jarad and Korozda Guildmage as my big payoff cards (with Spider Spawning and Kessig Cagebreakers in the sideboard). Both love the way the Lord himself can be sacrificed to close out the game when your graveyard gets big enough. Having redundant effects helps make any plan more resilient, so I usually run a playset of Splinterfright and sometimes consider Nighthowler or Bonehoard as backups for the elf. Splinterfright in particular benefits from having a Nyx Weaver self-mill effect tacked on. The major benefit to using these types of cards over Colossification is just mana cost. +20/+20 will almost always win the game, but for 7 mana, it's easy to see it being too slow in all but the most casual environments. Plus, if you tap out for the aura, a single Vapor Snag can ruin the plan before Jarad gets to activate. I'd want some other ways to take advantage of the huge buff, even if that's just efficient trample creatures, if I was building around Colossification. That, or finding some way to cheat it into play early.
If you can, I'd also recommend cutting down to the 60 card minimum. This will make it all the more likely you draw the most synergetic cards, although I do like that you have tutors to help with that too.
