I have found that with squishy armies like wood elves, their characters aren't worth their high cost. I'm not a huge wood elf army buff, but from looking at your list a few things stand out to me:

I would go for:
1 General
One combo of:
* Level 4 Mage
* Three level 2's
* Five level 1's

You need to up the model count, WE are notoriously squishy, possibly the squishiest in the game, so I would drop some of the lord/hero and add a lot more of the nice units, especially in the special section of your army.

I'll check the WE armybook later and give you some more targeted feedback, i'll check back later.
