Argothian Elder Discussion

smackjack on Ezuri, Renegade Leader (Suggestions Welcome)

Since you have Argothian Elder you might want to add Maze of Ith for infinite mana.

Attack with Argothian Elder and use Maze of Ith to untap it. Tap Argothian Elder to untap Maze of Ith and a Forest. Repeat for infinite mana and spend it on infinite Overruns with Ezuri :).

Like the build. Would you consider Fyndhorn Elder or Greenweaver Druid instead of Argothian Elder so the combo element wouldnt need any lands, since they produce their mana on their own ? Plus they are 3 cmc. +1

Ahhh I see about Argothian Elder now.

HarroHunter i have been considering dropping murderous cut, maybe replacing it with Pongify or as you mentioned Dispel

As for Argothian Elder I've found the combo with Maze of Ith works well. Is there a cheaper alternative?

I would cut Murderous Cut and Argothian Elder for some lower cmc replacements and why are you playing Rings of Brighthearth? Does it combo with something I'm not seeing? It doesn't work with Grim Monolith.

The Landfall ability indeed triggers along Kalametra's.

Some cards I would switch out include:

Abzan Kin-Guard 4 mana 3/3 lifelink is quite weak.

Aetherwind Basker Has no synergy with the deck.

Ajani's Comrade In my opinion Scavenging Ooze would be much stronger in terms of utility and reliability

Argothian Elder Land untap is useful if you're using many utility lands, which you are not. Could be replaced by any mana dorks like Elvish Mystic or Avacyn's Pilgrim

Aven Mindcensor This guy should stay if your playgroup is playing combo-heavy decks, otherwise he's useless

Blinding Souleater Little synergy with the deck

Salt Road Patrol Lacks utility

An-Havva Inn and Ancestral Tribute Very defensive cards, but Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or evenPelakka Wurm would benefit the deck more.

Angelic Blessing It looks rather weak compared to Collective Blessing orCathars' Crusade

Aether Vial A pricy card mostly used in tempo decks like Merfolks. Not very useful here since we should have plenty of ramp anyway.

Accorder's Shield Less synergy than say, Sword of the Animist

Chimeric Staff Looks like a weaker Chameleon Colossus to me.

Arboria Kinda goes against Karametra as a whole since you WANT to play creatures to pump out lands.

Absolute Grace+Absolute Law I mean, if you're only facing red and black, this should stay. Otherwise, it's an even deader draw than Great Wall.

Abzan Runemark Weaker than Rancor or many other boosting enchantments.

There might still be a few cards I find odd or out of place, but for now I'm slightly running out of time, so I'll proceed with some general must-have cards:

Sol Ring, Selesnya Signet, Command Tower, Oblivion Ring, Chord of Calling, Solemn Simulacrum, Tireless Tracker, Sun Titan, Eternal Witness.

Also wow Living Plane if you own one it's great, though if not it's quite the pricey card.

I can give you an extensive list of potentially great cards if you want me to, though tonight this is all the time I had, my apologies.

So I'm a little confused on something here. Is this supposed to be a multiplayer only build or is it a duel commander deck? I do see a Sol Ring, and of course the deck is labeled as regular EDH, but I also saw commentary about "the top" (which shall not be named) that got me waning to check.

Anyway, as a side note did you realize that Argothian Elder can make infinite mana in the right scenario with Wirewood Lodge and a land that taps for more than one mana?

For actual commentary, have you ever heard of Tangleroot and how would you feel about using it as part of any of your combo effects? I admit I don't see where space could be made unless you started removing elves or lands, but personally I'm curious as to how well it could do. The same could go for Vizier of the Menagerie but he's not an elf so :P to him right?

Elvish Guidance is a solid ramp card, but it also goes infinite with your Wirewood Lodge and Argothian Elder.
