Arbor Elf Discussion

apzombie on Mono Green I Win !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1 day ago

Love elves, I feel like you should take a look at some Beck / Call Elves, and Collected Company/Chord of Calling elf decks.

Arbor Elf usually isn't a solid choice as for elf decks as you already tend to go for unlimited mana/life with Essence Warden.Immaculate Magistrate is a cool card, but with the mana cost it usually wouldn't be thrown into an elf deck.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader(as well as Craterhoof Behemoth) is usually a one of which can be fetched with Summoner's Pact. I respect that you're trying to bust out Eldrazi's with elves, but I just feel like other elf decks combo better together.

Not sure what your strategy with Dryad Arbor is. That is a sideboard card for my Infect deck, that I would bring in against a Liliana of the Veil (they use the -2 to make me sac a creature, I crack a fetchland and sacrifice Dryad Arbor instead of my infect creature. I've never seen anyone mainboard a playset.

You'll definitely want to throw in some Nettle Sentinels for your Heritage Druid. Take a look at my friend's deck Call Elves for some Elf deck pointers. This isn't 100% current, but I still use it for play testing. At the moment he is pondering over splashing in a little bit of black for Shaman of the Pack.

Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl is the fastest way to ramp in modern with mono-g, and the cards arent too expensive. Then theres a bunch of cheap hydras that make great win cons, like Hydra Broodmaster and Ulvenwald Hydra.

Thank you for the feedback I really appreciate it.


Overrun is a good card that I had not considered and I only used Zendikar's Roil because it helped fill my 5 cmc spot and it works well with my plans of getting lands out. But I agree it is too slow, in fact I think that Overwhelming Stampede might be better and will trade it in.

I am using Harvest Season because I thought it was a cool new card and I am still on the fence on whether it is good in this deck or not. I will playtest more and see if I just need to trade it out for Cultivate and if I end up doing that I would like to find a spot for Explore so I could play the second land and it just looks like it would work well in this deck.

My meta is pretty slow and a little less aggro so I am slightly comfortable with the amount of mana dorks I have (for now).

And as for Primeval Titan (I only own the one) and Chord of Calling I have little money right now after my vacation but I will purchase these beasts cards when I have more funds.



Doing more playtesting but so far:

-2 Zendikar's Roil

-2 Frontier Guide

-1 Lignify

+2 Overwhelming Stampede

+2 Sakura-Tribe Elder

+1 Arbor Elf

EightBitBarnes on Blink & You'll Miss Your Death

Recover819 After using this for a few games, you can't rely on blinking the morph. With all the mana acceleration I can usually hard cast Abzan Guide/Ponyback Brigade by turn 3 on a good curve.

T1: Tap-Land or; Land, Utopia Sprawl or Arbor Elf

T2: Land, Utopia Sprawl, Arbor Elf, or Voyaging Satyr (If Sprawl or T1 Arbor Elf then you can play a morph here.)

T3: Can usually hardcast or flip a giant morph on this turn. It's a very satisfying play to have a 7/4 trampling common or have 5/5 P/T accross 4 creatures here.

Let me know about that blue btw. I was considering it but I like what black brought to the table against control postboard and Abzan Guide/Ponyback Brigade hard casts are great too.

other than Sol Ring the others you mentioned are painfully slow. Ok there are tons of 1 drop green ramp spells, here we go. Carpet of Flowers is one of the best green ramp spells in the game, someone will almost always have an island or two but you can skip this one depending on your meta. Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf, Fyndhorn Elves. If you add all the elves which for this deck I kinda think you should you have Priest of Titania and Elvish Archdruid. After those and I didnt put every possibility for elf ball decks you have the 1 drop enchantments that work wonders with Arbor Elf. Cards like Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth those two are considered the best of effect like that however there are many others that are 3 drops. Only use cards that are 1 drops for effects like this.

sylvannos on How Many Mana Dorks for ...

4 days ago

All of them. All of the mana dorks.

I like playing 4 Arbor Elf, 4 Llanowar Elves,and 4 Elvish Mystic in my version. That's on top of 4 Heritage Druid and 4 Elvish Archdruid. Being able to play Collected Company or giant Chord of Callings is something you want to do quickly.

I wouldn't play more than 1 Ezuri, Renegade Leader if you're using Chord of Calling. You could also drop a couple of lands. More mana dorks means more explosive hands if you have Heritage Druid and a lord.
