a nice cheap infinity mana combo is Maze of Ith + Argothian Elder you can only do it in your combat phase but with Ezuri, Renegade Leader you can pump infi time :D

I want to see more Voyaging Satyr pieces in this deck (i.e. Argothian Elder) to make the 'critical turn' more consistent. On this line of thought, ways to untap these creatures seems reasonable, Scryb Ranger comes to mind. I know that it has been suggested before, bringing it to your attention again: Rude Awakening (I can see it being to much win more).

I agree with hoard's suggestion of Rings of Brighthearth, for the above reasons and that it also works with garruk and Voyaging Satyr-type-abilities. I'm assuming it is not already in the deck for the same reason crucible of worlds is notably missing.

I'm not convinced of Wolfbriar Elemental, appears weaker than avenger and that given a choice you would rather dig further for avenger than play wolfbriar.

There be dragons! :D So... you need quick mana for him?

Island, City of Brass, Command Tower, Gemstone Mine, Mana Confluence, Polluted Delta, Cephalid Coliseum, Misty Rainforest, Watery Grave, Darkslick Shores, or Breeding Pool to get one blue.

then Mana Vault, Sol Ring, or Mana Crypt for 2 more mana

Grim Monolith and if you have another way of getting one more mana in your hand Basalt Monolith will work as well

Then you need Power Artifact or if you have Ancient Tomb play that and Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond instead of one of the above lands to play Rings of Brighthearth, with combo Gemstone Array to convert your mana into one mana of any color and go infinite

Or:

or Argothian Elder, a land to tap for green and Elvish Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Sol Ring, or Mana Crypt, and Exploration Azusa, Lost but Seeking if you didnt have Elvish Spirit Guide in hand. and Concordant Crossroads in hand go infinte with it

Or:

play a Forest and with the mana play Eladamri's Vineyard /Exploration for one more green mana at the begining of your next main phase play Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl on your Forest, then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond of another mana using that mana play Mana Vault then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond one of them you didnt play then play Freed from the Real/Pemmin's Aura

Above isn't from originally me, I just happened to be looking at it when I saw your deck :D

Hey thanks straighty! I think I already had a Horseshoe Crab, but Argothian Elder is a great idea (and an elf too!). I think cutting Farhaven Elf for it is a good idea.

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.
