I think that the landbase could use some upgrades, I'd recommend looking into Command Tower , Path of Ancestry , and maybe some other utility lands. Field of Ruin , Myriad Landscape , Blighted Woodland , Scavenger Grounds , Bojuka Bog , etc. Some cheap sac creatures are always good in these kinds of decks as well, Sakura-Tribe Elder , Viridian Zealot , etc. Lastly, the Seal effects are always good when you can reuse them! Seal of Primordium , Seal of Doom , Seal of Removal . That and they're enchantments, meaning they won't take one of your creature recasts per turn. Hope this helps!

That's a uh.. interesting deck name. You might like these: Elderfang Venom , Skemfar Avenger , Elves of Deep Shadow , Elvish Lyrist , Elvish Scrapper , Viridian Zealot , Elf Replica , Heart Warden , Ruthless Winnower , Yavimaya Granger , Bloodline Shaman , Pact of the Serpent , Elvish Guidance , Species Specialist , Elvish Promenade , Elven Ambush

Ayara doesn't seem like a good fit since you only have 7 black creatures including herself and your commander.
Selvala also seems out of place here since you arent playing many large power power creatures. I think I would cut her because on average she won't make more than 3 mana (so 2 because you pay G for the ability) and you'll be handing most of the card draw to opponents. Similarly Hunter's Insight, Life's Legacy, Garruk Primal Hunter face the same problems. These cards feel terrible when they draw you 2-3 cards. Instead I suggest drawing cards or creature casts like Guardian Project, Zendikar Resurgent, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, etc.
If you like storming off with creatures maybe consider Tangleroot. Sure it helps opponents but it makes elf decks vomit their hands and with a creature draw engine on board it might as well be a Primal Surge.
Your deck currently has 1 piece of grave recursion which would make a lot of black mana lovers sad. Some good options are Patriarch's Bidding, Rise of the Dark Realms, Finale of Eternity, & Oversold Cemetery.
Your deck also has a very few ways to disrupt opponents which can be problematic. Reclamation Sage, Attrition, gravepact, Toxic Deluge, Decree of Pain, Viridian Corrupter, and Viridian Zealot are good options to consider.
You seem to have abundant ways to produce mana but not a lot of ways to use it. I suggest the classic Staff of Domination as a combo piece and maybe some X spells like Torment of Hailfire. Other mana sinks like Temur Sabertooth can help you dig with draw engines while abusing EtBs.

Thanks for the advice. I took your suggestions into consideration and although I did already have Eternal Witness in the list I added the others. As well as Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle. I removed Viridian Zealot for Caustic Caterpillar, Caller of the Pack for Sakura-Tribe Elder, Raving Dead for Plaguecrafter, and honestly can't remember what for Viscera Seer lol. Geth, Lord of the Vault's utility at getting opponents artifacts and creature made him hard to part with and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief being able to kill indestructible but I'm always open to more suggestions and thank you for taking your time to help.

So, from what I'm seeing you could definitely use some more utility in your tool box. Not neccesarily stax but reactive pieces to combat stax.
Liliana's Standard Bearer is such an underrated draw engine in these types of decks.
Scavenging Ooze - some very good asymmetrical graveyard hate never hurts.
Definitely, bring in trophy, decay, and the tutoring demons in from the board.

We appreciate your feedback! Hydromorph Guardian and Hydromorph Gull were both chosen during construction to help teach new players the importance of creatures commonly referred to as Dorks. We feel that these creatures, along with Caustic Caterpillar and Viridian Zealot, add value and increase the deck's overall synergy. However, we strongly encourage all players to include their own revisions in order to make their gaming experience better. Happy gaming!

With the amount of small creatures you have in the deck, and your commander being who she is, something like Ezuri, Claw of Progress might be a good fit here. Not only that, it will add in an additional way of working with your Sage of Hours for the extra turns.

+1 for Glacial Chasm alone. Damn, that's a throwback.
I think the deck needs Life from the Loam and Crucible of Worlds. I Also think that Viridian Zealot would be better for the deck than Seal of Primordium, because it's a creature, and most of your recurrence is for creatures.
It's a good deck. Cheers!
