I like what you got going on here! +1! Mayeal's awesome. She too, was one of the first decks i ever built. I have a few suggestions for you though, if you don't mind.
I would replace the Lifespring Druid for Birds of Paradise . Hes does the exact same tning, he's just more efficient at one green. Also, with having only two mountains, take out Chained to the Rocks as I think that if you drew it and you don't have a mountain its a dead draw. I would replace it with a Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile . Champion of Rhonas is a good card in the early game maybe your opponents don't have blockers or the blockers they do have are just small 1/1 mana dorks or something than hes great. But Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper * are more efficient im my opinion. As you have no need to attack to get the effect and can do it anytime you have priority. (Even on your opponents turns)
Paleoloth and Spellbreaker Behemoth run great with Mayael because they care about anything power 5 or greater. Plus, Mayael's Aria is a fun and flavorful wincon for you! Hope at least a part of this was helpful. Again, +1! Great list for a first start especially! Oh, and Godsire is just a BEAST in Mayeal!

Some better options of ramp to replace Nissa's Expedition and Peregrination : Rampant Growth , Farseek , Nature's Lore (those two can grab nonbasic lands), Cultivate , Circuitous Route , Skyshroud Claim (can also grab nonbasic lands).
In the matter of boardwipes, you might consider Rout for instant speed or boardwipes that don't hit your stuff: Austere Command and Cleansing Nova for versatility, Single Combat , Divine Reckoning , Tragic Arrogance , Cataclysmic Gearhulk .

Does this deck have problems getting enough red mana? Seems like it might. Something I think might help would be going truly tribal with it, removing some of your more restrictive dorks for better elves. Specifically, I'm thinking remove Druid of the Cowl, Elvish Rejuvenator, Leaf Glider, Orochi Leafcaller, and Vine Trellis. You could even remove the Draconic Disciple if you want to go hard elf tribal.

A couple of cards I don't really enjoy in this deck are:
Groundskeeper since 1/1 for 1 with no ability tends to be bad, and his ability very really does something useful.
Shielded Aether Thief since you don't have an Energy build, it really almost reads like a flash 0/4 wall, which, if you face a lot of aggro decks, may not be the worst thing to be doing, but otherwise is very underwhelming.
Lifespring Druid is not the worst thing in the world, but it's definately underpowered, even compared to the rest of your list. The thing that makes me resent it however, is that your best cards are your 4 drops. But it does fix your mana, so maybe it's worth it for now.
Reach Through Mists. You should really cut your deck down to 60, but for as long as you're playing with more than 60, this card is completely dead, since it's only purpose is to increase the deck's consistancy. Something you could do naturally, without spending mana on by just removing it from your deck completely.

Came here from Reddit, gonna make some cut suggestions so you can fix your lands.
With so few lands that Zendikar's Roil isn't really doing anything for you. So I'd see that as a safe card to remove.Siege Behemoth, while a good card, is ultimately unnecessary in Elfball decks. I might also consider taking out Titania's Chosen as it doesn't really give much to the deck in terms of utility. By itself it's a 1/1 no evasion dude with no ways to really give it evasion. Sylvan Safekeeper isn't doing you any favors, either. Its utility is land-sac, something you don't want to do with only 24 lands. Maybe cut a few of your basic land search cards. You have almost as many ways to get basic lands as you do basic lands. Remember Freyalise makes mana dorks, so you'd be safe cutting a couple. Since you're ramping early I'd say a safe cut could be found in Lifespring Druid
Hedron Archive with so many other mana sources is effectively draw two cards for six mana, horribly inefficient.
Now to suggest some cards to put in the deck after you fix your land situation. All of the creatures suggested here are elves. And apart from Kindred Discovery, they're all fairly cheap.
Harmonize - Draw 3 for 4 mana. It's great.
Kindred Discovery - Name elf and draw for days.
Master Biomancer - Starts out by giving your incoming creatures 2 +1/+1 counters, but with Ezuri that number grows exponentially.
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter - Gives your smaller cards a little more value, or your big stuff a lot more value.
Sages of the Anima - In a creature focused deck this card is a bomb.

Thanks for the feedback! This deck is still very much a WIP, reflecting only what I currently have in physical paper and not what I necessarily would make in an ideal world. I'm working on obtaining some of the cards in the maybeboard, and then will take out the Plains, and replace the Lifespring Druid, Folk Medicine (as I agree they are too much investment for not enough payoff), and maybe most of the rest of the non-creature spells with cards like Timberwatch Elf, Presence of Gond, and perhaps something like Molder. I don't think I need Elvish Mystic because basically all of my cards are 3 mana or less... I don't really need much mana for this deck.
No data for this card yet.
