Argothian Elder Discussion

Looks like a pretty sweet list! However, I would consider running a few more ways to recover and/or protect against board wipes. Eldrazi Monument is a great way to both protect your board from destruction and yourself from fliers. Temur Sabertooth is a great way to either give bounce your own creatures to save them from a board wipe, or just eke some additional value out of your etb effects. It also does silly things with a haste enabler on the board, making all kinds of silly infinites possible.

Next, there are some powerful mana producers you might want to consider. Argothian Elder synergizes very nicely with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , and Elvish Guidance, potentially producing enormous amounts of mana. Viridian Joiner can also generate lots of mana, potentially letting you pump multiple more times with Ezuri or just go infinite with Umbral Mantle.

I feel like Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are a little too slow for their intended purpose. Generally elfball decks want to explode early, but run out of gas later. While these cards can give you a bit of sustain, generally you'll already be running low on creatures to trigger them by the time they come down. I suggest Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, and Regal Force as great ways to draw a bunch of cards off of a board of elves, giving you additional value for when your board is cleared.

Finally, mono-green has some issues with fliers. The aforementioned Eldrazi Monument should help with that, but there's another very synergistic option available. Jagged-Scar Archers grows with your elf army, and pings off fliers when its not swinging in for tons of damage.

Hope these suggestions were helpful!

No Maze of Ith for Argothian Elder combo or potentially threshold Krosan Restorer combo ?

Quest for Renewal is the budget version of Seedborn Muse and is super easy to activate in a Seton deck. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and even Elvish Guidance are nice includes as they can go infinite with Argothian Elder using Wirewood Lodge. Elvish Guidance by itself turns a forest into a Priest of Titania.

Helix Pinnacle is a funny wincon but pushes budget constraints. I'm testing out Killer Bees and Unyaro Bees as possible wincons that are funny in their own right.

No problem man, here is what competitive Selvala looks like. My advice would be to make your list as close to this list over time, and of course what you feel comfortable with $$.

Some things that immedietly stood out to me that have no place in a competitive deck are: Archetype of Endurance, Argothian Elder, Colossus of Akros, Elvish Piper, Forgotten Ancient, Garruk's Horde, Genesis Hydra, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heroes' Bane, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Karametra's Acolyte, etc (I give up, I'd be typing a lot of cards.

Not trying to bash your deck at all, I'm just trying to make a point that competitive is a whole other beast :) What you have now may work for you and thats totally fine. Competitive Selvala however looks like the list I linked, and can win as soon as she can make mana which can be turn 3-5 consistently.

Most of what got put into this deck was with I already had, only actually ordered a few cards.Never thought about using Aetherflux Reservoir, that's something that I'll definitely consider.

I considered Concordant Crossroads & Stone-Seeder Hierophant but figured that the Crossroads wasn't too needed, and i liked Argothian Elder bit more becuase of how well it works with Wirewood Lodge and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip.

This is probably one of the most combo oriented decks I've made, so making this deck I wanted to have the combo potential, but also have the traditional option of just plain beat down. Though I'll definitely give these cards considerations, especially the reservoir, that looks like a juicy add. Though I think the first thing I'm going to be adding is Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for some board wipe protection.

First of all I'm guessing that your playgroup it's fine with you running Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary which is banned in Commander.

A lot of your creatures are elves as well as Druids maybe Wirewood Lodge to get their effects off twice like Argothian Elder if you use his effect when you have Zendikar Resurgent you can make infinite Mana to pump your commander.

Zenaku17 Argothian Elder + Maze of Ith and a forest =

The downside is it's only during combat.

But with a Helix Pinnacle though...

Maybe you can find some inspiration from my Ezuri EDH deck?

Since you are running Maze of Ith you could add Argothian Elder. With Maze and Elder you can generate infinite mana in your attack step to spend on infinite Overruns with Ezuris ability..
