Hey, well done on such a low budget. Less than $100 is impressive :)
Some $1-$2 or less budget cards to consider adding:
- Miara, Thorn of the Glade : she triggers when Elf tokens die.
- Pyre of Heroes : Elf Birthing Pod .
- Pact of the Serpent : mass draw with Elves.
- Llanowar Wastes : ETB untapped.
- Fallen Ideal : enchant Jarad to give him flying evasion to do Commander damage. Is a no mana cost sac outlet to make Jarad huge while also triggering Poison-Tip, Elderfang, Savra, Nightblade, etc.
- Paradise Druid : could replace a Swamp.
- Golgari Signet : could replace a Swamp.
- Lys Alana Huntmaster : another source of repeatable Elf tokens.
- Jarad's Orders : put an Elf in your graveyard and one into your hand.
- Temple of Malady
Cards to consider cutting:
- 3x Swamp
- Casualties of War
- Masked Admirers
- Golgari Germination
- Necrotic Wound
- Rhys the Exiled
- Uncage the Menagerie
Good luck with your deck.

Hi raspberryfish25 Thanks, I like playing it. Just finished a quick 1-on-1 game versus my brother-in-law's deck (all about stealing cards) and lost to my own elves. As for the mentioned cards, I've looked into all the mentioned cards in early builds, some of them will definitely make the 99 in future upgrades.
Skyshroud Poacher - Pricy but spicy, still in the back of my head for a future upgrade.
Wolverine Riders - Have played this card, but didn't do well, yielded me a few extra tokens, but got removed fairly quickly, might try it again.
Sylvan Messenger - I'm not the biggest fan of digging a few deep in the hope to fetch a good card, you can whiff easily.
Elvish Guidance - Is in the deck, done great work so far.
Harald, King of Skemfar - Like Sylvan messenger, it can whiff so hard, Land, Land, Dork, Artifact, Enchantment. Also, Tyvar Kell has to be in the deck too, to get the most out of it. Abomination of Llanowar would be the better choice in this build.
Elvish Harbinger - Like the Poacher, very good.
Sylvan Offering - This can produce an insane amount of Tokens and a big beater Treefolk token with the amount of mana the deck can produce, the only drawback for me is giving my opponent the same amount in return, I will try it out, this and Stoneforge Masterwork might work, but Lathril depended.
Elvish Clancaller - An early 2 drop Lord in play is always nice, but it doesn't come with extras, like the other lords.
Elvish Champion - Also on my future upgrade list, the best Lord around for sure.

I am really liking this deck, but I am noticing a lot of core cards from a typical Elfball style deck are missing. Have you tried any of the following cards in the deck and if so what was your experience: Deathrite Shaman , Skyshroud Poacher , Wolverine Riders , Sylvan Messenger , Lys Alana Huntmaster , Elvish Guidance , Harald, King of Skemfar , Elvish Harbinger , Sylvan Offering , Elvish Clancaller , and Elvish Champion ?

May I suggest Lathril, Blade of the Elves as part of the 99? In a perfect world she makes you abomination even more abominable, then lets you sacrifice 10 elves to deal 10 damage and if you have Poison-Tip Archer on board, it means its 20 damage to everyone! Followed by a good abomination sac to deal the remaining damage and killing the entire board. Other than that, Fyndhorn Elves and Elves of Deep Shadow for early ramp, and Elvish Warmaster is a cheaper, better version of Lys Alana Huntmaster .
Also, Song of the Dryads is such a cool removal card for green, you can even "permanently" deal with tricky commanders, and it also activates the forestwalk in Elvish Champion , allowing for a beat down plan in case they're up to your fling strategy.
Joraga Warcaller is also very sweet for this deck!

Hey, I'm impressed, well done building your deck on a budget with like 90% cards from Commander Legends.
Commander Legends was an amazing set for Elves especially Miara. Unfortunately, to make any real impact from upgrades you're going to want to add more cards from other sets, but most cards you add could be $1 or less each and still make a huge impact.
An advantage of Elves as a tribe is ramp, more specifically one drop mana Elves and Elves who can tap to make a lot of mana. No other tribe has as many one drop mana creatures or creatures who can make a ton of mana. By adding more mana Elves you can reduce the amount of lands while increasing the amount of Elves. More ramp from Elves is wanted by both your Commanders to cast Nadier quicker and to pay more into X with Numa. Both of your Commanders don't do much without lots of ramp.
- Elves of Deep Shadow : can make black mana.
- Elvish Mystic
- Elvish Archdruid
- Marwyn, the Nurturer : less than $1.
- Elvish Guidance
- Viridian Joiner
- Wirewood Channeler : less than $1, can make black mana.
- Birchlore Rangers : can make black mana.
Archdruid is the budget Elf who defines the tribe since he's an anthem for Elves and can make as much green mana as Elves you control. Marwyn and Joiner are good with Numa, Joraga Chieftain since they want counters put on them, they care about how much power they have. Marwyn is also good with Elf tokens since each token that's created puts a counter on her. Guidance has excellent interaction with Arbor Elf if you enchant a Forest or Woodland Chasm .
- Prowess of the Fair
- Elderfang Venom
- Elvish Warmaster
- Lys Alana Huntmaster
- Elven Ambush
- Wolverine Riders
These cards would expand on the Elf token theme and Prowess is unique since it's an Elf that's not a creature. Expanding on the token strategy makes Nadier better. Warmaster is another mana sink to pump and give Elves deathtouch. Elderfang doesn't create tokens like the other cards, but it has good interaction with them. Letting you swing with your Elves and opponents have to make difficult decisions about what to do.
I offer more advice including cuts to make. Would you like more advice?
Good luck with your deck.

These too: Lathril, Blade of the Elves , Wirewood Channeler , Elvish Archdruid , Priest of Titania , Elvish Warmaster , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Lys Alana Huntmaster , Tyvar Kell , Wolverine Riders , Fauna Shaman
Personally I would cut these: Treeshaker Chimera (costly, not on theme), Sheoldred (costly, general already kinda fills the same role), Wildborn Preserver (weak effect), Penumbra Wurm (costly, not on theme), Pelakka Wurm (costly, not on theme), Protean Hulk (costly), Noxious Gearhulk (costly, weak effect), Destructor Dragon (costly), Gift of Doom (costly), Kokusho, the Evening Star (costly), Moldgraf Monstrosity (costly), Verdurous Gearhulk (costly, weak effect), Claws of Gix (there are plenty of better sac outlets), Entreat the Dead (costly)

There are a few cards making very little sense to me:
Primal Amulet - Right now you're running 4 instants & sorceries.
Library of Leng - Are you drawing that much? Is your meta that full of discard? Reliquary Tower would be a better fit unless your meta is really heavy on discard.
Grinding Station - You're playing few artifacts. I think I counted 13. Might be wrong though. Still, most of those artifacts are stuff you don't want to sac.
Tower Above + Bequeathal - Your commander gives shroud to most of your creatures. You don't want to target them 99.9% of the time. Considering your commander and the fact that people will try to get rid of it asap I might go with Myth Unbound.
Most of the lands coming into play tapped. Most of them are subpar.
Adaptive Automaton - Elves have more than enough lords. No need for a non-green creature.
Allosaurus Rider - Although I'm not against this card per se, I think you'll need to play more stuff to make it work. Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape + Kodama's Reach and whichever other mana ramp you can add to the deck.
Beast of Burden - There are elves that do this. Heedless One, Jagged-Scar Archers and Drove of Elves (which you're playing) are elves and they get shroud from the commander. The 1st has trample, the 2nd kills fliers and the 3rd has hexproof which is good when your commander is out.
Bloom Tender - This card belongs in multicolored decks. Preferably 3 or more colors. You have several elves that tap for G, costing 1 cmc. At 2 cmc you'll prefer Priest of Titania.
Fangren Marauder - High CMC, triggers on artifacts destroyed only and does something that comes natural to elves: lifegain. Wellwisher is way better.
Llanowar Mentor - You're not playing madness, I don't see anything to abuse cards from your grave... Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is way better.
Mishra's Self-Replicator - Feeds Grinding Station, I know. Still, not that good, I believe.
Shaman of Spring - Masked Admirers does the same, has the same cmc and is repeatable.
Silhana Wayfinder - I'd prefer Wood Elves.
Spire Tracer - Meh.
Weatherseed Elf - Might work if you find a way of turning your non-green opponents lands into forests. My fav way is Deepwood Elder.
Some cards you might consider:
Lys Alana Huntmaster - Token generation. Self explanatory, I believe.
Marwyn, the Nurturer - Mana acceleration.
Wolf-Skull Shaman - Card advantage. Works quite well with Sylvan Library.
