I'm gonna say more draw, or at least more efficient draw, which is easy in a green creature deck. Along the Beast Whisperer line of thinking, you have to include Vanquisher's Banner, as well as Zendikar Resurgent and/or The Great Henge for both the ramp and draw, and probably include Guardian Project as well, and maybe Soul of the Harvest. Next I would consider stuff like Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, or maybe Inspiring Call if you'll be distributing enough +1/+1 counters to creatures. To go other routes for draw, I would consider including Grothama, All-Devouring to attack/fight/"sac" a bunch of "excess" creatures for draw, or Skullmulcher does similar in a pure sac way, or perhaps Ohran Frostfang, Regal Force, Toski, Bearer of Secrets, Benefactor's Draught, Mind's Eye, War Room, and while Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is off the Elf theme, it's still effective for more than draw. Or go with stuff like Rishkar's Expertise, Hunter's Prowess, or Garruk, Primal Hunter if you're going the tron route with Lathril. If you don't mind spending some money, it's hard not to also mention Sylvan Library.

Anyway, tons of great draw options that are in line with your deck's theme. And if you have excess ramp, you need excess draw to keep up.

I suspect at your average MV you're not looking to increase it, so maybe Esper Sentinel? It offers card draw, which never hurts to have access to. Smothering Tithe would make sense if you consistently find yourself short of a lot of mana mid/late game, I feel like if you're just buffing your Commander with it it's not that spicy. I think if you had more card draw than Tithe would be the better card to add.

You might also consider Toski, Bearer of Secrets or Ohran Frostfang as ways to draw more cards than Esper Sentinel. Card draw is really, really useful at all levels of power, and while you have some, I think more wouldn't hurt.

If you want to run only 18 lands, you might want to look at some more ramp. An old staple for budget play is Rampant Growth, but Harrow might also be worth a look, since it can fix your mana effectively. There are also options like Farhaven Elf to consider if you really want the body, or Springbloom Druid, in a pinch you could try Silverglade Pathfinder, but it's very slow in Legacy.

Not sure if it's out of your budget, but some White removal might be good in here, the best option is Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile, but Generous Gift is versatile (and you shouldn't be too worried about a 3/3 compared to what you blew up), but there is also Fateful Absence if people run Planeswalkers. If you want really cheap cards, you might try Oblivion Ring, though that isn't always a permanent solution, it is cheap and versatile.

It's definitely on the pricey side, but Toski, Bearer of Secrets is probably a lot better than Rigo, who won't work with your 1 power creatures after they get a +1 counter on them, Toski pays you for each creature that hits. Ohran Frostfang is arguably even better, but it's more mana and easier to remove, Toski is Indestructible. If you use Toski, you could run x1 of him and use 1 or 2 Time of Need to help find him more consistently. It can also find Djeru, or any other Legendary creature.

A card I like on a budget is Blossoming Bogbeast, the +2/+2 and trample buff is pretty big, and if you've got some other way to gain life before you attack, you can make the bonus much bigger. Trample often ends games much quicker. It's clunky, but it's a pretty cheap repeating Anthem effect.

Another good staple to look at might be Once Upon a Time, which is amazing in the opening hand usually, and reduces how many hands you have to mulligan compared to just running a land or creature in my experience. Like Gitaxian Probe, it got banned in other formats but it's used in Legacy sometimes.

I hope you can have some good games with your new deck!

Looks like a fun deck. I see you're pretty dedicated to the faerie theme which is rad, but I think if you wanted to improve the deck power-wise you could swap out some of the high-cost creatures for evasive 1-drops like Slither Blade, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Gudul Lurker, etc. The more 1-drops you have, the higher your odds to play 1 on turn 1 and 2 on turn 2, then you will be primed to make 3 faerie tokens when Halsin drops on turn 4.

You might consider these cards too: Bident of Thassa, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Coastal Piracy, Toski, Bearer of Secrets, Reconnaissance Mission, Ohran Frostfang, Druids' Repository, Storm the Citadel

Super cool! I haven't updated my own Hapatra deck in a pretty long while... I might have to fix that now!

Thoughts on Toski, Bearer of Secrets and/or Ohran Frostfang for card draw?

Some thoughts:

  • 24 CoCo-able creatures is on the low (but still acceptable) side for a CoCo deck. I would think you'd want more to make this viable - there's currently going to be a high % chance to only hit one creature off CoCo.

  • Your quantity of 3-and-4 cmc cards is waaay too high. Modern decks typically struggle to play more than 3-4 cards at the cmc 4 range. I would suggest ditching all the Toski, Bearer of Secrets at the very least. But I also can't see any reasonable reason to be running Settle the Wreckage - I think you should ditch this also.

  • I think if you want to keep playing Collected Company you need some mana dorks to help facilitate this (namely, Noble Hierarch). If you're not wanting to include mana-dorks, I think Aether Vial would suit you better than Collected Company.

  • You currently don't have a sideboard... this is pretty important for a modern deck, so i'd suggest thinking about what to include for that sooner rather than later.

Love this brew and love the title! A few recs which you may have already thought of:

Mana Reflection need more mana?

Beastmaster Ascension pump

Decree of Savagery pump

Toski, Bearer of Secrets more draw?

Greater Good more draw?

Defense of the Heart game-changer

Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider if you're going strong for +1+1 counters

Again awesome deck!
