Sure! Your main idea is to get out a creature with power six or greater, from there your infinite mana sources are Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Priest of Titania or Circle of Dreams Druid combined with Staff of Domination, Umbral Mantle, Kogla, the Titan Ape/Hyrax Tower Scout, Ashaya, Soul of the Wild/Quirion Ranger or Scryb Ranger, Temur Sabertooth/Hyrax Tower Scout or Great Oak Guardian or Wirewood Symbiote. After making so much mana your outlets are... Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Relic Golem, Walking Ballista,Finale of Devastation. Also Temur Sabertooth can be used to trigger selvala's draw trigger if you have the larges creature on the field. A few interesting techs I've found are using Temur Sabertooth or Kogla, the Titan Ape and Eternal Witness to loop any instant or sorcery from your graveyard, and using Green Sun's Zenith on zero to get Dryad Arbor turn one as a dork if you really need it. Hope this helped!

I'm not the maker of this deck, but I do have a Selvala deck that is very similar. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds wins by essentially playing an undercosted high-power creature such as Phyrexian Dreadnought or Phyrexian Soulgorger to quickly generate a ton of mana, get cards like Quirion Ranger or Wirewood Symbiote into play with Temur Sabertooth to generate infinite mana through blinking the Wirewood Symbiote to use it's ability multiple times, and then tapping and untapping Selvala, and then either with through a Walking Ballista for infinite or infinitely bouncing something like Great Oak Guardian to give all your creatures +infinite/+infinite and swing for game.
As for this deck, I would highly recommend adding Concordant Crossroads, Craterhoof Behemoth, or even cards like Berserk. Concordant Crossroads is essential in decks like Selvala, where you can repeatedly bounce your own mana dorks to generate infinite mana, or even flood the board with creatures and quickly swing for game that turn. Deserted Temple is also nice for untapping things like Gaea's Cradle or Wirewood Lodge. Sylvan Tutor is also really nice as it adds more consistency.

Eh he's far too slow for cedh but nothing ventured nothing gained play with it a few times and see how it performs in your group.
Their purpose is to dump massive amounts of mana into tasigur to draw more lol. With something like Seedborn Muse and Quest for Renewal you're looking at 4-5 cards a turn. Tasigur is all about grinding out value and digging for combo pieces - I read you were on a budget so I wasn't sure what the cut off was for price point. My top recommendations if you go this route are

I know it's not an Elf, but it definitely synergizes. Have you considered Wirewood Symbiote as a means to untap a critical Elf or save one?

Xenagos, the Reveler already was a Gaea's Cradle on a stick, and nobody ever got excited over that. Circle of Dreams Druid 's biggest hype is being an Elf, for untap shenanigans with Wirewood Symbiote and the like.
I guess a Tolarian Academy -artifact would probably look a lot like Nyx Lotus , counting artifacts instead of devotion. Even then, I don't expect one in a Standard set the upcoming year, they've printed way too much Treasure Token generation recently to risk even a watered down version.
