Hey nice deck ! First time I see a golgari elf tribal in this format. I really like the taste of it and your finishers seem fun :)
Furthermore, my 2CP is that Demonic Tutor , Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Duress and Hymn to Tourach are stapple in black. You should probably not run them all but the fact you're playing Shapers' Sanctuary shows you're looking for tools versus control. Those black cards are way better than Shapers' Sanctuary (and I run Shapers' Sanctuary in my main duel commander deck since I haven't access to black :p). Since you seem to have a strong deck for you should at least have a try on Mind Twist .
To finish with, even with your amount of ramp going to 35 lands can be a good thing. Mulligan deaths are real in this strong format (maybe the London mulligan will change lists). The best elfball deck lists have around 37 lands (https://mtgtop8.com/archetype?a=367). Wasteland could be a really sweet inclusion ( Sinkhole is kinda solid and available in black if you'll find land destruction is efficient).

Deck seems good to me, it'll probably perform well too. Have fun and tell me how it does next time you play.

Oh, Martyr refers to Martyr of Sands . Sideboard is mostly dependent on what the locals play in your area but here's a general guide:
2-4 graveyard hate cards
2-4 artifact hate cards
2-3 Tron hate cards
2-3 anti-combo cards
2-3 anti-aggro cards
2-4 protection/anti-control cards
When making a sideboard, you should also consider what types of decks your deck will be good against, what decks it's bad against, what cards your opponent may bring in from their sideboard, any factors that may restrict your card choices, and how you can choose cards that will help with your deck's overall game plan while also shoring up your bad matchups. Your deck gains a lot of life and has various control elements, so it'll have a good matchup against aggro decks, a fair one against midrange and control, and a worse one against combo and graveyard decks. Traditionally Martyr decks also have a really tough time against Tron as well. So you'll need to address combo, gy decks, and Tron more heavily than aggro, midrange, and control in your sideboard. Next, your deck plays Martyr of Sands , so you'll want to play as many white sideboard cards as you can.
Here's an example sb:
If you know what others play in your area, I can make a more refined sb for you. There also exist more budget-friendly sideboard cards, so tell me if you want suggestions.

Some suggestions I have are, Gutterbones can be a real annoyance to opponents, especially if you put something like Judith, the Scourge Diva in the deck, Legion Warboss and Fireblade Artist are also great cards that work with judith and put down a ton of early game pressure on opponents. Finally, some removal and hand control like Drill Bit / Duress and Skewer the Critics could also fit in. maybe as a late game threat you could put in a Rekindling Phoenix if you wanted to. those are my suggestions.

oh do not cut bottom end removal pieces you might have to cut some top end big things.
yes Rocks as in rakdos signed locket and mind stones and all the things bushido_man96 recommended. Although personally I would lean away from the myrs because they are more likly to get removed, the extra body does not help you much, they suffer from summoning sickness and Rakdos TSS might kill them when he lands.
Cut wise i would probably ditch:
Fate Unraveler Underworld Dreams these cards i would only really put in a deck where you are making them draw cards Nekusar, the Mindrazer for example. really the minor amounds of damage they do is not worth the card slot.
now onto the maybe cuts, this section I'm more hesitant but if you say they work they probably do:
Halo Hunter how often do you see angels?

Just some suggestions! Since this is a competative deck i would add some more discard to the main board, like Inquisition of Kozilek or Duress . You are going to face a lot of matchups with a small creature count, then discard is the way to go (since it is kinda like removal anyways). Since there are a TON of utility lands in the meta you really cannot go wrong with Ghost Quarter . Setting Tron back, destroying an flipped Azcanta or killing another creature land like Celestial Colonnade . In the Side board you gotta go with some graveyard hate, Tormod's Crypt , Leyline of the Void etc. There are a lot of graveyard based strategies in modern so hate is a must. I hope this helps in any way!

Head scratchers: Combustible Gearhulk , Fate Unraveler , and the discard effect cards. These two creatures don't really seem to offer you much, and don't really seem to fit the theme of your deck. Instead of the Gearhulk, I'd run more reliable card draw, like Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Book of Rass , Necropotence , and maybe even some red wheel effects, like Wheel of Fortune if you can or Magus of the Wheel on the cheap (there are several others, too). I also recommend Sunbird's Invocation , especially with the high curve you have.
I honestly don't think cards like Duress and Inquisition of Kozilek are going to be that impactful for you. I'd consider running options like Meteor Golem , Spine of Ish Sah , and Unstable Obelisk to get rid of enchantments.
Hope this helps!

Duress requires a target and Teyo, the Shieldmage means you are not a legal target for their spells. Together, this means Duress should not have been cast, as there were no legal targets. If that’s not what happened, you should report it as a bug.
