Destroy all enchantments.
I don't mind the thread Necromancy
here because there's a lot of good ones unmentioned.
There's a bunch that overlap artifact/enchantment wipes but I don't have the time to list them right now.
Green has TONS of enchantment removal. Back to Nature shuts down enchantment based pillow forts and voltrons at instant speed. (I don't know why people don't play that one more often.) Krosan Grip tells blue players to stuff their counter spells where the sun doesn't shine.
Great deck with a great name!
I've always enjoyed Genesis Wave in elf decks.
Also, if this were mine, I'd replace Back to Nature and Krosan Grip with Tranquil Path and Slice in Twain for the draw advantage because you're pretty good on mana flow and elves are cheap.
Possibly an Expedition Map to grab the Gaea's Cradle ?
Good lookin build, dude! +1
You're running Back to Nature considering you're not running any enchantments, I have to ask how many your friends are using? I don't think it's enough to warrant using this over something that has more targeting options.
Also, absolutely love this competition deck idea. (me and a few friends used to do mage-pauper where all of the generals were uncommon creatures with "mage" in the name and the whole deck had to be commons. We rarely finished those games.)
i'm a fan of stax having made two myself, an Azorious control As High As Honor and Esper infinite mill Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken, although an old concept with the original being in Legacy with strategy works very well in modern. Mono white Stax being an accessible way for someone start playing modern with a deck that will win consistently albeit slowly, +1
Be mindful that mass enchantment removal does see sideboard use in many decks in case of a bogle match up, so i'd try memorise the name of the one's you'll come up against in various colours such as Back to Nature & Tempest of Light so as to shut the card down in game two after sideboarding via Nevermore . Don't think Holy Day is needed, it doesn't stop non-combat damage if that's what you were thinking? Phyrexian Unlife might be stronger in that case, as will branching out a bit for Pithing Needle , Damping Matrix , Torpor Orb , Rest in Peace and most importantly Glaring Spotlight otherwise your only option against hexproof/shroud is to wrath.
