This is a very common misconception.
If they truly revered Nature, they wouldn't magically manipulate their homeland to be one friggin season all year.
No, it's not.
The Magi are clearly responsible for that, not all Blood Elves think that way, this is made clear when the Farstriders directly opposed the creation of the Blood Knights and the treatment of the Naaru.
The Blood Elves ancestors would have been responsible for the enchantment, something that present day Blood Elves wouldn't have had anything to do with. I would also think attempting to reverse this enchantment would have catastrophic effects on the ecosystem that had been in place the last 7000 years or so. Much like trying to reforest the Barrens.
It's also clear in how the two groups interact with the treants in Eversong. The Magi enthralled the tenders, while the Farstriders saw the treants as friends, and burnt the Scorched Grove in order to prevent the rest of the nature in Quel'thalas of being corrupted.

Which the Cenarion Circle is also guilty of. They tried to replace one thriving ecosystem with another. There was nothing wrong with the Barrens, but the Druids attempted to plant a forest, in an attempt to revert an ecosystem to that which existed 10,000 years prior. For the Druids to judge the Blood Elves on that would be highly hypocritical.
I've never heard it said Elune is a goddess of Arcane. Shes a holy goddess, and the Night Elves, up until recently anyway, abhor Arcane magic. I've also never heard of a 'natural kind of Arcane.'
Ghostcrawler said Blood Elf Druids don't make sense, and I agree. I hope they are never, ever, ever implemented (And that's not my hatred toward Belves talking - I would consider it the one of the only race/class combos that literally makes 0% sense, up there with Orc and Forsaken Druids).
Well she is associated with Moonwells which are
sources of Arcane Energy. I can only imagine it as the opposite of Fel Magic.
Well I do remember him saying something about not wanting to do them right now
right before Cataclysm came out.
I also remember an article on Wowinsider that only discredited the notion of existing Blood Elf Druids, Stormrage
also contradicted some of the points made in that article and I believe the book came later.
Other than that I hadn't seen any definitive nos.
There's a satyr in Dire Maul that turns into some corrupted animal forms, undead maybe. The Forsaken could be a corrupted version, obviously, not the "defender of life" type.
The living become living ones. While the undead become undead ones. The same way they are "corrupted", so will be the druidic magic they try to use.
I think it fits. :)
Yet Blood Elf Druids don't...
Sylvanas was also unable to use her Nature-based abilities as a Ranger upon recovering her body, hence the need for Dark Rangers, abilities other Rangers were also said to possess, including her sister.
Quite honestly the Satyr would be closer to the Magi of the Blood Elves rather than the Undead.
