Creature — Elf Archer
Reach (This creature can block creatures with flying.)
Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy.)

Sorry I was the bearer of bad news, otherwise Halvar would be very strong in her.
But the changes you've made look very good and should speed up your game a bit or make it more consistent.
Stalking Leonin removal for heavy creatures.
And Kindred Summons could work in her, but the cmc is a little bit high.

That’s a little more difficult to say. Another issue I see is that there are many 1 and 2 ofs. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if they function extremely similarly (for instance if a deck runs 1x Elvish Mystic and 1x Llanowar Elves, they’re basically the same card), but with so many different creatures at 1 copy apiece synergy is lacking.
It seems the basic strategy is to ramp into a decent amount of mana quickly and then play a bomb. I’d lean into this 100% and cut anything that doesn’t contribute toward it; cards like Thornweald Archer, Talara's Battalion, Scavenging Ooze etc don’t really add anything.
Try visualizing the different wedges of your strategy. You want the best ramp cards you can afford, the best non creature spells that synergize with your goal, and the best bombs you have to capitalize on all the mana you’re generating.

Yeva is my favourite mono coloured commander, as she really changes how green typically plays. Nice list! A few things..
1) Land count seems a little low, especially as your ramp seems to rely more on Seedborn Muse style effects. Stuff like Farhaven Elf and Elvish Pioneer work well for me. Also get Emergence Zone in there, handy flash back-up plan if Yeva is MIA.
3) Bounce effects. Instant speed creatures are great, but being able to repeatly cast for value is better. Temur Sabertooth is a baller, and even stuff like Stampeding Wildebeests and Stampeding Serow work really well.

I like Thornweald Archer on defense. I also like Inviolability (an aura, I know, but hear me out). I love putting it on creatures like Wall of Glare , Palace Guard , Guardian of the Gateless , Hundred-Handed One etc. Or putting it on Palisade Giant .

Decent deck. You might think about getting that average cmc below 2.5 but besides that I like it
So don't take my recommendations as me disliking your deck, but I'd suggest adding Eidolon of Blossoms,Enchantress's Presence, Fertile Ground, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Tuvasa the Sunlit, Setessan Champion, Bear Umbra, Winds of Wrath, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel. But consider which of the higher cmc ones you y like because average cmc is important
Suggested cuts would be: Charisma, Thornweald Archer, Rofellos's Gift, Grimoire of the Dead, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Predator Ooze, Revoke Existence, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Lux Cannon, Stonecoil Serpent, Behemoth Sledge, Necropede, Wall of Denial, Spawning Grounds (as cool as it is, it's likely going to get the land it's on blown up), and think about taking out some of your etb tapped lands. Again these are suggestions and in no way am I saying these cards aren't good.
Anyways, hope it helps and I do like the deck, estrid proliferate is a good place for this commander

Thornweald Archer - Reach, Deathtouch He will hold many opponents at bay for quite a while until I can build a boardstate.
And not a creature, but Devout Invocation. I LOVE it in the Selesnya builds I favor. Suddenly your army of 0/1 plants or 1/1 saprolings or whatever are now protected by an army of Angels.

I made that suggestion based on your commander. Your commander doesn't really fit the concept of lifegain with +1/+1 counters. Choose a theme and stick with it. +1/+1 counter centered decks would much more synergize with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker.
EDHREC is a great website to find some cards that might fit your deck. You can either search for card suggestions by theme, by commander, or a combination of both.
Sorry, Hyperlinks don't seem to work here:
+1/+1 counter theme based suggestions https://edhrec.com/themes/p1-p1-counters
Lifegain theme based suggestions https://edhrec.com/themes/lifegain
suggestions based on your commander https://edhrec.com/commanders/doran-the-siege-tower
There is also a useful site called mtgassist, that helps you find cards that are similar to another card. For example, if you think that a card like Solidarity of Heroes really fits the theme of your deck, you can enter that card there and you will get a bunch of other cards that have a similar effect.
When I take a look at your deck, I see some cards that have no synergy with your deck at all. Like Canyon Jerboa. It neither synergizes with +1/+1 counters or lifegain, why is it in your deck? Same for Shadow Stinger or card Sea Gate Banneret. Every card that is in your deck should match the concept of it, else cut it out.
Also, a lot of the cards in your deck are straight out BAD, as in, there are cards that do the same thing, that are strictly better. It seems to me like you are trying to build a budget deck, but even then, I believe you would find MUCH better options than Turntimber Ascetic, Tajuru Snarecaster or Guul Draz Mucklord
I would advise you to completely rebuild your deck, first pick a commander that matches the theme you want to go with, then use the websites I mentioned above to find some decent cards that go with it.
If you are on a budget you can also choose "Budget" on EHDREC for the most popular cards of a certain theme or commander with a more reasonable price.
