Dwynen's Elite Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion Chickens_are_awesome. Dwynen's Elite seems like a great card, but i only run 3 elves in this deck and it just doesn't seem like i would benefit from its value. Dwynen's Elite would be great in a Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury deck though!

Either him or Khalni Hydra! Pretty much how I play Elf Ramp, but the Hydra can be some mean devotion and droppable by T3. Try out Dwynen's Elite for both Power ramp & synergy with Heritage Druid.

All the cards I think I could possibly suggest are already in your Maybeboard!

There is Devoted Druid and Cloudstone Curio if you ever want to make it a combo deck instead of stompy

Copperhorn Scout can be really good at untapping Elvish Archdruid for a lot of mana after attacking or Chord of Calling after attacking

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-

T1 Forest, Elvish Mystic

T2 Forest, tap Elvish Mystic and play Heritage Druid, tap both forest and play Dwynen's Elite, tap 3 untapped elves, play Elvish Archdruid

T3 Forest, tap 3 Forest for Ezuri, Renegade Leader, tap Elvish Archdruid for 6 , use Ezuri, Renegade Leader's overrun ability, attack for 20 with trample.

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

I think you have a decent start to a good Elf deck here! My suggestions would be to go up to the full amount of Elvish Archdruids since it is the best lord you have.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader has the ability to give all your elves +3+3 and trample repeatedly! Very good and very game ending as a backup to Shaman. He also protects your other elves from being killed with his regenerate ability.

Dwynen's Elite is very good at helping the Elf decks go wide

Lead the Stampede can help you refill your hand after you've played it out, creating a second wave of elves to be cast and making very hard for your opponent to keep up.

Some black sources for Shaman would be good as well. Nothing incredibly expensive but there is cheap fixing like Llanowar Wastes should be enough

Are you actually trying to make a modern viable deck? Because if so, there are likely some changes you should make. Admittedly this is a slightly more expensive proposition.

The cheapest change to greatly improve the deck is 4x Elvish Visionary. Dwynen's Elite is also quite strong. Also, as your best win-con, maybe 2 copies of Ezuri is desirable.

The core combo to make elves strong in format like modern and legacy is Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel; you tap elves for mana using the druid and then the sentinels untap when you play the elves, letting you get more mana for elves. Potentially you can put your whole hand in play on turn 2.

More expensive changes include Cavern of Souls and Collected Company. Chord of Calling is strong, and makes it very nice to run 1x Reclamation Sage main board. Regardless, have a few in sideboard.

For cards to remove, Rhonas's Monument and all 4 and 5 cmc spells in your list aren't strong enough for modern. Your land count is also rather high.

Jimmy_Chinchila N4kk1 please keep it civil. I don't think Hushwing Gryff would be too great as my deck would probably be more vulnerable to it than my opponents with 4 Dwynen's Elite, 3 Elvish Visionary, and 4 Shaman of the Pack. Appreciate the suggestion though :)

this deck may be better if you put in a few more elf cards, things like Elvish Archdruid, Dwynen's Elite and Heritage Druid for more mana ramp. In the deck I run using things like this i can easily T3 get Conduit out just because of the elves mana, I can easily get Void Winnower out as well using them.
