Great list!

I'll include some recommendations if you're interested:

Recursion: Bala Ged Recovery  Flipand Eternal Witness would be helpful I think.

Tokens: Thinking along the lines of MOAR TOKENS, Second Harvest and Rhys the Redeemed . You could also consider Call the Coppercoats , Deploy to the Front , and Nomads' Assembly . Awakening Zone , Giant Adephage is fun.

Trample: I'd recommend Nylea, God of the Hunt if you're willing to shell out the extra bit.

Draw/Card Advantage: Mentor of the Meek is ideal for card draw. Skullclamp . Keeper of the Accord is both ramp and token generation. Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flipis nutty landfall help.

Finishers: Mirror Entity is a good finisher. Beastmaster Ascension , Crescendo of War for pricier options.

Protection: Fanatical Devotion

Removal: Hour of Reckoning Fell the Mighty To avoid your low to the ground creatures.

Landfall: Court of Bounty Ancient Greenwarden if you really want to yeet. Ulvenwald Hydra or Scapeshift to find Field of the Dead and more great landfall triggers.

I just wanted to point out, unfortunately you can't use Rhys the Redeemed because of the hybrid mana symbol. Your commander would need white in it's color identity. If you need a replacement for now, I would add back in one of the cards that lets you put an Elf Warrior token into play for each Elf you control. Honestly, I'd put both back in. Elvish Promenade Elven Ambush .

Joraga Warcaller Ezuri, Renegade Leader Alpha Status are some cards to consider as well.

As far as cuts, I would go with Pride of the Perfect End-Raze Forerunners Elven Bow Tergrid's Shadow Cultivator of Blades Voice of the Woods Twinblade Assassins You can easily replace Elvish Rejuvenator with Wood Elves or Farhaven Elf

You have some crazy good lands already, so I don't know if budget is an issue, so I will suggest the fetch lands and an Overgrown Tomb . Gaea's Cradle if you're doing okay financially.

I have only recently built myself a Lathril deck. Good luck with this! It's really fun to play.

Thordorn on Elves Tribal EDH Lathril, Blade of the Elves

Hi, first of all, I like the simplicity of this Deck. Lathril, Blade of the Elves has the colour identity green and black (gb). Unfortunately hybrid mana, like the mana for Rhys the Redeemed and Growing Ranks gives both colours to the colour identity of a card, so that these two cards are regarded green and white cards and are therefor illegal in a Lathril deck. (If your playgroup ignores that, which is you right to do, ignore that.)

Since you propably want to attack with Lathril, you'll want to protect her. The two most basics cards to do that would be Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots , although they are not vrey flavourful. You could also improve her first effect by giving her double strike (i.e. with Fireshrieker ), which would result in triggering the effect twice per attack.

An additional Elf, I would recommend, is Fauna Shaman . With that you can search you library for more important elves. The following cards would greatly improve the deck, but are also pretty expensive moneywise, are Kindred Dominance , Kindred Summons and Doubling Season .

If you want to protect your whole board (at least for a single time) you could add Druid's Deliverance .

What could also help would be trading a few lands (like 4-6) for hard ramp like Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Wild Wanderer and Sword of the Animist to get faster to the needed mana for your elves.

I hope I could help you a little.

Have fun with your deck

I actually agree with plakjekaas.

My opinion holds significantly less weight in this thread than others because I don’t play EDH, but this is the one debate I don’t mind hopping in.

There’s a lot of different opinions in this thread. Some people think that Rhys the Redeemed should be available in a mono white deck and a mono green deck, in addition to the Selesnya deck she is currently utilized in.

Others are saying that Rhys the Redeemed should be available in any deck that plays white or green, this mean Jeskai, Boros, whatever.

Due to these conflicting views just within the community of tappedout I think it’s safe to say that it’s either confusing, goes against the color identity scheme that has existed for decades (even though WOTC is taking creative liberties to slash those color identities into nothingness), and that the community will never fully agree on what should happen with these hybrid mana cards.

On a Reddit thread, somebody more articulate than myself said this;

“ Imagine a Double-Hybrid-Rampant-Growth. And now imagine that each Deck with White in it could access this card. Suddenly people would have more options to ramp in Gruul, Azorious, even Mardu Decks.”

And I think it explains my feelings exactly. Cards with hybrid mana costs have them because they “feel” both white and green or whatever colors they are, mechanically. To slot them into a mono colored, or even a very off color (Rhys in Jeskai for example) deck would just feel wrong to me.

There's nothing wrong with your list as-is, but I do think a combat-oriented strategy would run more smoothly. Its up to you, maybe you could even do a combination of the two versions.

You could actually still incorporate many of the cards in your current list into the new list if you went for the combat strategy. For example I would retain these: Archivist , Arcanis the Omnipotent , Parcelbeast , Rhys the Redeemed , Heroic Intervention

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.
  • forneyt on Wanna attack me? Ha! Not this turn.

    I'm glad I could help! I have some other suggestions if it's no longer budget (I won't include Mana Crypt an stuff though haha) and you want to improve it some more: I see that you also have Ohran Frostfang , which is a great deterrent for your opponents deciding to block. Another good source of Deathtouch could be Bow of Nylea , which also does some other cool abilities on top of giving deathtouch. Some other good drawing enchantments include Garruk's Uprising , Elemental Bond , and Colossal Majesty . Since you run anthems, these guys can trigger on your weenies too. If you want something more consistent, Beast Whisperer and Mentor of the Meek are also good draw power. A fun card that puts creatures onto your opponent's side of the board is Hungry Lynx , especially because it gives your commander protection from the creatures it makes! Legion Loyalist seems perfect in this deck since he gives all your creatures first strike, trample, and evasion from tokens, and all of those things make it easier to get the goad trigger. Dragonmaster Outcast and Emeria Angel can make even more flying tokens to get that sweet goading trigger. Feldon of the Third Path seems good for when things are inevitably in the graveyard and you want to use them. Blade of Selves lets you use a creature you already have even more! Some other ramp that you haven't included is Selesnya Signet , Sol Ring , Rampant Growth , and Sword of the Animist . Anthems that you might consider are War Horn , Spear of Heliod , and Glory of Warfare .

    The cards I would cut include: The small creatures with only a landwalk ability, like Dwarven Grunt and Treetop Scout ( Dryad Sophisticate is good, though). They are limited in their ability to get in for damage, and don't do much else beyond that, which makes them your more weak cards. I agree with your decision to try to cut the Hunted Troll , but the Hunted Dragon seems good since you can swing immediately and goad the tokens it makes. Although the Soltari creatures with shadow are good, I think you may have too many of them--they are intensive, and only Soltari Champion and Soltari Visionary really do anything when you use them. The Healer's Hawk and Segovian Angel are basically really bad Serra Ascendant s. If you want the 1-drop, maybe consider Figure of Destiny (gets bigger) or even Rhys the Redeemed (makes tokens). Citadel Siege and Dictate of Heliod are too slow and/or costly to make an impact, in my opinion. You know your meta better though.
