Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen Discussion
2 weeks ago
First thing I noticed is, right away, lack of dual-lands. I have a hard time believing you can get your hands on Gaea's Cradle but not a Temple Garden, Bountiful Promenade, Canopy Vista, Riftstone Portal, or even a Sunpetal Grove. There's also the classic Savannah, though that will run you some $$.
Another thing you might want to look into is making those elf tokens a force in their own right. A fun one from the new set, Divine Visitation might be something to look into. Also Trostani Discordant and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen are cards I can think of off the top of my head that would give them boosts. Intangible Virtue and Radiant Destiny are also excellent enchantments, giving them more P/T and vigilance.
Oh, and you can double your tokens even further with Anointed Procession. Just figured it was worth a mention.

I feel like besides Craterhoof Behemoth, you don't have any big creatures/spells. I would at least consider sideboarding some bigger threats, like Nissa Revane, or Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, and especially Deathrite Shaman, who even without black can be a force to reckon with, as it disrupts land destruction decks and black mill decks. Deathrite Shaman is not legal in Modern, but if you ever change the format of this deck, that would be helpful.

Expanding on whatLord_Olga mentioned there are more cards that could give you access to elf tokens to accelerate the win con.

I would start by cutting Woodweaver's Puzzleknot as your deck has no energy synergies. If gaining 3 to 6 life is your concern I would look to Feed the Clan or Life Goes On, but only one of these in the SB.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader is better than Managorger Hydra in an elf deck.
Thornbow Archer is a nice Janky card.
Elvish Archdruid is way better than Elvish Champion
Nissa, Worldwaker gives you a way to capitalize on the budget land list.
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen looks good as a one of.
4 copies of Fatal Push is unnecessary in Jund as there are SOOOO many removal cards in those colors. Even on a budget, Putrefy, Abrupt Decay, Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Cast Down, Dismember, Terminate.... The list goes on and on. Having a playset of any is generally wrong unless it's Bolt because it beats face.

I love my mono green elves it was my first EDH deck sometimes I swap the commanders around just for fun.

I really like the concept, but would rather go mono-green, with Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen in place of Shaman of the Pack. This will further develop the theme of elf critical mass, where the more elves you have, the stronger they all get.
Of course, in a full-on aggro mono-green elf deck, Blanchwood Armor could be fun.

Quirion Ranger It has some combos, but you have more than enough other cards for this, and most are more durable
Caller of the Claw Too situational
Elvish Vanguard It lacks utility and is relatively vanilla for the deck
Arcane Adaptation most of your creatures are elves, and the ones that aren't don't necessarily need the buffs. Not a guaranteed removal card, but it's only going to be useful on rare occasions
Overrun Not really necessary, you have other cards to achieve the same or greater effect.
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen other than the buff the second ability isn't incredibly helpful and it won't trigger Ezuri
Protean Hydra It's not likely to die in combat, so it's pretty much just a big creature. Your other hydras are better
Swan Song, Counterspell, Disallow; With so few counters, these cards are more likely to show up when you have absolutely no use for them rather than when you need them. You're better off cutting them out to slim down the deck.
Stroke of Genius You have enough draw and the other draw is better
Uncage the Menagerie way too specific, and way too much of a gamble. your best search would be 3 and you would only search through 3 cards.
Urza's Incubator Most of your elves are pretty cheap, so this may end up being pretty dead, as you may just end up with a bunch of unused mana. Your call on it though, as it's still somewhat useful
Door of Destinies This is slow and honestly the lack of other utility makes it somewhat dead. still has potential, so up to you.
Braingeyser You have other draw, and not being instant speed or triggered off creatures means it may not be as useful
Gilt-Leaf Ambush Not a fantastic card, low and just a dead draw late game
you have a plethora of low drop mana dorks, so you may want to slim those down a bit

Elves are a lot of fun! I especially like that newcomer, Steel Leaf Champion! Just a few suggestions... I would run a full playset of Pendelhaven You're running 12 1/1's... they can use all the help they can get! Also Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen is another lord for elves that gives you a life boost during combat. Elvish Champion is also good, especially in a mirror match. If you want another beefy creature, you could check out Nath of the Gilt-Leaf.
