Thanks 010101nature,

Aphetto Alchemist is alright, but but the only reason to have him would be for an infinite combo, which my play group kinda frowns upon.

I do love Illusionist's Bracers think it would be a great addition to this deck. I am thinking I might have to get a couple to add to other decks as well.

As for the tutors, I am definitely not opposed to adding one, and would probably just go with Demonic Tutor, I have a couple from a purchase of some person's old cards, so could throw one in... Problem is, until I play this deck a couple of times, I don't really know who the hero is going to be, so tough to say what I would tutor for. Might end up going with Dizzy Spell, so I can pull Consulate Dreadnought

Since you got 2 places open (At the moment of making this comment) you could consider Aphetto Alchemist and Illusionist's Bracers, togetter they can push infinite artifacts untap, but alone they can still do pretty good, Illusionist's Bracers can do wonders with Oona, Queen of the Fae.

I see you are making this on a budget, and so you don't have any tutors, you could considerate Transmute mechanic in cards like Dimir Infiltrator, Dimir Machinations, Dizzy Spell, Drift of Phantasms and Muddle the Mixture could be really decent in here.

Good luck :)

Rupture Spire is awful. It slows you down by alot. Even Evolving Wilds is faster.

Conjurer's Closet is a free deadeye activation every endstep.

Fatestitcher and Aphetto Alchemist let you untap meriekei b4 her teigger resolves meaning you can steal 2 creatures a turn. Puppet Strings and Thousand-Year Elixir can do this as well

Here is a link to a post explaining how this works:

  • Aphetto Alchemist + Illusionist's Bracers. This combo allows infinite untaps of any creature or artifact you control. With Bloodline Keeper or Thraben Doomsayer, it's infinite creatures. With any mana rock, it's infinite mana. The Alchemist is a solid untapper, and he won't go away if your commander dies, unlike some of your enchantments. He can also be used to untap other things, making him essentially function as an extra token generator or additional mana rock without the Bracers. The Bracers themselves aren't as useful, as you won't need to copy your commander's ability. They are of some use on the two token generators I suggested, but they only really shine in this deck when equipped to the Alchemist. It's an idea. I may just run the creature and not the combo, but I figured it out the whole thing forward.

Befor I forget, I also would suggest Lightning Greaves here. They give your commander much needed protection, haste, and the 1 mana difference between them and the Boots is the difference in being able to activate his ability or not.

you could always go with the Aphetto Alchemist + Illusionist's Bracers combo with Avacyn out to steal the whole board so everyone hates you even more

Hey do excuse the Necro but it'd be cool to bounce ideas off you as I have a similar construct (Tasigur elves).

Thousand-Year Elixir seems like it has a slot, as with Aphetto Alchemist. Wirewood Channeler is a must add as its the best scales off elves dork ever printed, high cmc but different colored mana nonetheless. Paradox Engine also works wonders, especially with 7+ mana in dorks.

My finisher is a massive Villainous Wealth because even without combo the elves can have it cast for 10+ in X.

I do like your curve a bit more than mine, it seems your presence would be felt more from t1 which is very necessary at competitive. Mine is more kitchen table centric
