Collective Unconscious Discussion
on $10 Tokens ✨

I'd cut some of the non-token making big dudes in favor of more card draw. I tried a few hands and usually was able to play out everything in it after just a few turns. Maybe consider the Sylvan Library and Abundance combo and cards like Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious since you are going wide with tokens. Gorgon's Head and Ashnod's Altar can be stupid fun with Ulasht also.

For starters you're too deep on dudes unless you're running some kind of Primal Surge deck, which this isn't. You're asking to overextend into a board wipe with too many creatures that don't do a lot alone.
More ramp. You've got some mana dorks, but they die the first second someone drops an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Night of Souls' Betrayal or just casts a wipe. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are a good start. I'd find a slot for Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim, plus probably Emerald Medallion.
You need more draw. Harmonize is a good start. Rishkar's Expertise is busted AF. Get one. Selvala's Stampede can do really good work, and Genesis Wave is never bad. Collective Unconscious and Shamanic Revelation are possibly usable here too, and if they are so is Garruk, Primal Hunter who should almost always draw you 4-5 for five mana.
Scavenger Grounds will save your life some game, and it won't hurt you given your lack of colorless lands. Same for Strip Mine when someone starts tapping Cabal Coffers for 14. Plus with those new crazy flip lands from Ixalan everyone gets a Gaea's Cradle and you'll wanna kill that thing ASAP.
There's also Hall of Gemstone but that feels like cheating.

With a lot of your guys having or giving everyone trample, Stonebrow, Krosan Hero is a nice extra pump, especially for a going wide strategy.
I don't see a lot of draw outlets so a few more to consider are Shamanic Revelation, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Mask of Memory, Collective Unconscious, Hunter's Prowess, Mouth / Feed, and Soul's Majesty.
Adding in Bow of Nylea is fun with trample because you can assign 1 deathtouch damage to a blocker to kill it and let the rest spillover.
Avenger of Zendikar is great for getting tokens to go wide with.

For any Ezuri deck I'd recommend putting in Umbral Mantle to give you infinite mana with any mana dork that taps for 4+ (also gives the dork infinite power). You can then win on the spot with Ezuri pumps. You should also have Natural Order to get Craterhoof Behemoth out early. Replace draw spells like Harmonize and Collective Unconscious with creatures, esp. Regal Force, or else a powerful spell like Glimpse of Nature. I do like Shamanic Revelation though.
You should put in a Karametra's Acolyte if you put in the Mantle.
Otherwise I'm not super familiar with 1v1 metas, but the above changes make the deck win faster and in more diverse ways, including through disruption. Hall of Gemstone is probably a good include to fuck with the 4c decks. Some other aggressive elves to consider: Skyshroud Elite, Wren's Run Vanquisher, Sylvan Advocate.
Can't remember if it's banned, but Sylvan Library. Also more creature tutors to be able to find your Reclamation Sage or Priest of Titania will probably help, so Eldritch Evolution, Chord of Calling or Worldly Tutor are good options.

If you go through the linked article he explains a lot of the wheres and whys, first develops it into elf deck, then a better deck with more money, then finally "take out the worst 15 elves and put these in" which is the land stuff.
Elves kept: Caller of the Claw; Elvish Archdruid; Elvish Harbinger; Essence Warden; Fierce Empath; Immaculate Magistrate; Imperious Perfect; Joraga Warcaller; Lys Alana Huntmaster; Oracle of Mul Daya; Wellwisher; Wren's Run Packmaster; Yeva, Nature's Herald.
Elves lost: Arbor Elf; Birchlore Rangers; Elvish Mystic; Elvish Visionary; Ezuri, Renegade Leader; Farhaven Elf; Heritage Druid; Joraga Treespeaker; Llanowar Elves; Priest of Titania; Reclamation Sage; Timberwatch Elf; Titania's Chosen; Wirewood Channeler; Wood Elves.
Collective Unconscious got kicked for Shamanic Revelation, and Swiftfoot Boots for Lightning Greaves, just personal preference. The fella was cost conscious so I added to the manabase (Gaea's Cradle, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs and Misty Rainforest (basically the Forest Fetchlands and Cradle).

Thanks for the comment, multimedia!
I've never actually thought of Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious before, despite the both of them seeing regular use in my local circles. Though, to be perfectly honest, I've never actually thought of getting more card draw in, on the simple basis that I do regularly manage to ulti Freyalise. That being said, you're completely right in suggesting that it isn't reliable enough. Even just adding Skullclamp would be a massive help.
As for the fogs, I run so many as a personal preference. I get paranoid, haha. That said, Fauna Shaman is an interesting suggestion. I'll certainly have to get my hands on a copy!
Thanks again! :)

Hi, Nature comes with Skullclamp add that back in place of Implement of Ferocity. Clamp can be busted with the tokens Freyalise's can continually create. Drawing two cards from one mana. Clamp is just a really good artifact with Elves in general. Nature also comes with Swiftfoot Boots add it back in place of something. Even though you can't use it to protect your Commander, she isn't a creature, you can use it to protect (hexproof) another Elf as well as give an Elf haste which is good with many Elves.
Some other budget cards including other Elves that I've found to be good with the Elves are:
- Fyndhorn Elves
- Arbor Elf
- Wirewood Symbiote
- Dwynen's Elite
- Temur Sabertooth
- Wild Pair
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary
- Shamanic Revelation
- Primal Command
- Sylvan Messenger
- Lead the Stampede
- Sword of the Paruns
These can have much more impact and replace cards of the same casting cost here. Cards like Primal Command, Lead the Stampede and Sylvan Messenger are important because of the budget. There's going to be a lack of good creature tutor cards because most are not budget options, they're price is too expensive. These cards can help to find a potential lot of Elves or creatures and put them into your hand.
More draw spells are another way to overcome the lack of creature tutors. Shamanic Revelation is another as well as better Collective Unconscious and Harmonize is just a good draw spell for budget green.
Sword of the Paruns is the budget infinite mana combo artifact for Elves. It in combination with Elvish Archdruid or Priest of Titania and other Elves in your control can be used to make infinite green mana which can then be used to play a lot of spells or activate Ezuri, Renegade Leader's overrun ability a lot of times.
I also recommend that you add 4-5x more Forests to the manabase, giving you 34-35x lands. The avg. CMC (converted mana cost) is 3.6 this is high for only using 30x lands.
Good luck with your deck.
