Thousand-Year Elixir, can make two of your elves more valuable and threatening the turn they come and can't be hindered very much by Stony Silence. Although Lightning Greaves functions similarly, Elixir gives less room for your opponent to respond and punish you if they have an answer. Some combination of Cavern of Souls, and/or AEther Vial makes things uncounterable. I would recommend some graveyard hate in your sideboard, potentially just Ground Seal for budget purposes, or Leyline of the Void.

I don't see any real reason to run 4 Emrakul, as someone that plays some cheaty-like decks, bombs like Emmy just don't do enough work especially as a dead draw. I would recommend expanding a little bit and having some one-ofs in sideboard as well. Of the ones I recommend, are similar to any reanimator-like targets: Griselbrand, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Woodfall Primus just even as a one-of and castable on ramping, I think he's strong enough to run 2, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Craterhoof Behemoth, Primeval Titan, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, there are a few others, but I believe these are all from S+ to A- (not in an particular order). Being more of a toolbox however, does make the deck a lot stronger.

Awesome deck dude! Some generic additions - I would say the deck needs a lot more ramp to get to the top end faster: Cultivate, Into the North, Kodama's Reach, Sol Ring, Gaea's Cradle etc.

Some more top end staples would be awesome here and give you some comeback against wrath effects: Avenger of Zendikar, Regal Force, and DEFINITELY Craterhoof Behemoth.

Token Strategy is so awesome with Elspeth Tirel, but also Saproling Symbiosis, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Slate of Ancestry, Parallel Evolution and even High Sentinels of Arashin for the counters plan. Add in some Overrun effects and your in business!

Oh.... and how is Cyclonic Rift not in here lol :P

Sorry, meant to include card suggestions in there too but forgot :P

Craterhoof Behemoth could be a hilarious finisher that would also be very hard to keep track of mixed in with all the varying powers and counters.

Avenger of Zendikar for late game overkill.

Decks running green should really consider Eternal Witness as she is wonderful.

robrone9 on Which Finisher Sorcery for Mono ...

I am struggling with using either Genesis Wave or Primal Surge in my deck... both of them seem amazing, but both do similar things. Unable to decide yet, so I am using both. Part of me says just drop the Gen Wave and run 4x Surges, but I don't know if that's right. I normally hold the Wave until I can cast for 11 (chance at Craterhoof Behemoth) and/or opponent is tapped out. So casting a spell for isn't a problem, especially with this deck.

So why do people run Genesis Wave more often? Is it just to be able to run a baby wave, and then hit 2 or 3 creatures, maybe an Eternal Witness pick it up and go again next turn? Cause that's about the only benefit I see right now.

For reference:

Hey man, I love Primal Surge! I like this deck but I really would suggest you add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as it is both cheap right now and amazing in a deck like this, and consider cutting back on the instants because they non-bo with Primal Surge. Just run less is all.

You have 2 options really... 1) Add more beasts! :)

Some of my favorites: Craterhoof Behemoth, Rampaging Baloths and Thragtusk.

And 2) replace instants with Enchantments! :)

Again, some favorites: Descendants' Path, Leyline of Lifeforce, Rancor, and Utopia Sprawl.

Lastly, Genesis Hydra is amazing, but really shouldn't be played with Primal Surge, as will be . :(

I feel as if this deck could really benefit from Craterhoof Behemoth. It's got the devotion you need for Aspect of Hydra and could honestly be a win condition if you don't have Nylea, God of the Hunt out.

lil_cheez Ive considered Overwhelming Stampede, but it's really dependent on having a high powered creature on the field. Overrun doesn't have to wait on a fat body. I could slip out dorks for some beef. Craterhoof Behemoth is a fun idea!

+4x Genesis Wave and a Craterhoof Behemoth and you've got yourself a Modern Nyxwave deck. Nyxwave (Modern<$300) is my version, you're welcome to check it out for some ideas on the archetype.
