Lead the Stampede so you don't run out of gas. Also Dwynen's Elite, and Heritage Druid make for a good turn 2 play.

LegendaryCreature-Podcast on Kyle's Rhys: Rhys-ies the Redeemed Revisited

2 weeks ago

This is a totally different take on Rhys from my first time around. I had been indiscriminate about the tokens I used in my original build. Here, I'm trying to make it more of an elf deck that is subordinated by tokens. I'm curious to see if Rhys' first activated ability can produce enough tokens to get threatening. It's definitely going to be a learning experience.

What does everyone running a Rhys elf ball deck think? Do you find you need more token production? I've got some other cards at the ready to include if needed, such as Dwynen's Elite, Hunting Triad, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Mercy Killing, Sylvan Offering. And because we've got a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck in our group, I've got Flourishing Defenses ready too.

If you're running more elf token production, what are you cutting to get those token spells in?

Disagree with the Nissa Revane comment above. She can say your life more often than not, and you dont have to search for Nissa's Chosen.

However, your land base is way to heavy, most modern elves decks run 18 lands or less. I would run 4 swamps, 6 forests, 3 shocks, 3 fetches. You can afford to cut your black control sonce youre looking for a short game by pumping out aggro elves. Your Wellwisher is not modern legal so thats gotta go. You should be running play sets of Chord of Calling and Collected Company kill Gaea's Revenge its too big and a win more. Add more Dwynen's EliteCut Nissa's Chosen to 1 because youre tutoring for her with revane and shell go back to your library if she dies. Also add playsets of Elvish Visionary and Elvish Champion. These will allow you to be more aggressive and consistently winning by turn 5-6. Most people say aggro wins by 3 or 4, i say theyre full of crap. If you need more help, ill be able to provide feedback.

You didnt ask for feedback but i have some to make you just a tad more competitive. First, i think you are running way too many lands for having 6 mana dorks, id cut down to 18-17, and just make playsets of the dorks. This will help against blood moon.

Im not a huge fan of control in elves decks but if youre gonna run black for IOK, you might as well toss it and just go with Thoughtseize.

If you fix mana base, youll no longer need Elves of Deep Shadow cut thise for 3 more Shaman of the Pack id also find a way to add atleast 2 Ezuri, Renegade Leader

I would also cut craterhoof to a 1 or 2 of (if you play the elves right the game should be over before you can cast him)) and you wont need him at all. But id cut it down to 1-2 im favor of Dwynen's Elite.

Lastly, and this is just me but i think the card is just too damn good in any chord of calling deck, but Throne of the God-Pharaoh has been a godsend for my golgari elves deck. Severely punishes death shado deck, and has turned into quite the little win-con for me.

Hope this helps, id love to hear how you perform with this!

Here is a sample solitaire draw I just played out. It went off a little faster then usual (though not rare by any means), but it obviously wouldn't take into account whatever interference my opponent managed. Of course with a Heroic Intervention in hand, that lessens the threat of interference somewhat.

Tsuru-Hime on Elves

One elf that typically lands in these decks that I don't see in your list but is cheap: Dwynen's Elite. Two elf bodies that fuel the Archdruids and everything else.I know you mentioned Tower Above in your description, I find Wildsize more useful for the card draw, the +4 vs +2 is normally immaterial for these decks.
