You might be right. Thought of Deepchannel Mentor as kind of a finish. And the only creatures that do not profit of this effect are Copperhorn Scout, Deeproot Elite and Forerunner of the Heralds. I think my creatures won't become that huge, Deepchannel Mentor might be an option to win the game with my Overrun spells. I'll test both I think.

Ooh, good thinking with Emerald Charm. I was just thinking, the fact that your defenders have to be tapped to really perform is troublesome because it means they can't block, but with those charms you could either get enough burn to end the game before your opponents' attacks become a problem, or return your defenders to untapped position so they can block.
Understandable to want to leave out Utopia Sprawl. The only further adjustment I can think of to make is to put in a fourth Emerald Charm since the synergy is just so good, and/or maybe even a card with the same effect but that can be used more than once. There are some strong options here; if you prefer a creature for it, there's an effective option in Copperhorn Scout. If you'd rather stick with Instants/Sorceries for it, Burst of Strength gets the job done, and if you're willing to drop that price limit, Mobilize is a strong option.
As for what to drop to make room, I recommend up to 2 Slagwurm Armor and/or Abundant Growth, and/or 1 Sheltering Word, but I would keep whatever is dropped in your Sideboard so you can adapt to what your opponent does.

Helix Pinnacle for a mana dump or back-up win.
Copperhorn Scout for another untap effect.

+1 from me. good list. Copperhorn Scout and Skyshroud Poacher would be useful in this list in helping achieve hide tide mana. Scorched Ruins is like Cradle/Nykthos in mana production. With Deserted Temple it's 7 colorless. Benefactor's Draught should be in the main. Also, Krosan Grip. There are artifacts and enchantment that wreck this strategy. Liking the idea of Winter Orb thats a dirty stax tax that your deck plays around well.

All the cards I think I could possibly suggest are already in your Maybeboard!
I would suggest 1 Pendelhaven as it can allow your 1/1 dorks to be more aggressive when you need them to be.
Collected Company is obviously excellent and aside from that either Chord of Calling or Lead the Stampede should replace Nylea's Presence. Some do one or the other and some do a 2/2 or 3/1 split. Either way I think one of these should definitely be mainboard. Lead the Stampede is excellent at refilling your hand and Chord of Calling can get that 1 Ezuri you need to win on the spot. Both are powerful, though I lean more towards Chord since it allows you to play singleton hate cards you can tutor for in sideboarded games.
Joraga Warcaller is a pretty awkward card with Collected Company because you cant have it come in with counters to pump the whole team. In a Coco build I would cut it and a couple Visionaries and 1-2 Champions to make room for Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel. The most explosive starts possible with Elf decks involve Heritage Druid. Ex-
Turn 3 you can deal 20 damage, but an explosive start like that doesn't happen without Heritage Druid, its just not possible. With Nettle Sentinel you can tap it for mana using Heritage Druid cast a spell, untap the sentinel, and do it again, essentially playing out your whole hand.
Anyway, Elves are my favorite Modern tribe, I hope this helped a bit! Happy Brewing

have elf decks stopped using Copperhorn Scout to untap their creatures?
With Ezuri being legendary maybe leave him as a 1 of and tutor for with with chord when needed to overrun. Joraga Warcaller would be a fine replacement lord.
How do you prevent running out of gas with limited draw? in the eternal formats they use Glimpse of Nature with Nettle Sentinel + heritage druid to combo out. Modern gives us Beck or Soul of the Harvest (if you can generate to 6 which shouldn't be too hard with Elves)

Good question! Reconnaissance clearly has great synergy with a lot of our orb effects and Stasis and is a card I was very excited about for a while but ultimately I found it to be extremely low impact in situations where we don't have specifically Static Orb or Stasis and, being an enchantment, it's pretty tough for us to tutor.
I much prefer Copperhorn Scout for this type of effect because finding creatures is much easier for us.
