Dwynen's Elite Discussion

One problem I see with the deck is that you're overestimating how often you can get a mana dork, and for any format with cheep removal, they can be dealt with very easily. One Fatal Push is enough to set you back a good amount of turns until you can get a land to cast your other elves.

I say drop the Wirewood Herald, Nissa Revane, and Nissa's Chosen for 2 more lands and 4 Dwynen's Elite

Other than that the deck is really explosive, using play tester I 'Managed' to use Genesis Wave to play the entire deck and swing for over 200 damage.

Hey Randsome, I'm currently not playing Pioneer. There's definitely many more and much better Elves in Pioneer than in Standard. Shaman of the Pack gives Elves the tribal win condition and a reason to be Golgari. If I decide to play Pioneer then I will definitely change this deck since I've left Standard.

I don't think I will return to Standard for quite a while, if ever, because it's a damn mess, a waste of money and Theros is the next plane we're revisiting. It's one of the few planes in the multiverse that doesn't have Elves. I'm a Commander player now and I don't see that changing because Wizards is supporting Commander a ton next year which I'm very excited about.

If I was playing Pioneer then this is the budget Elves decklist I would play:

Total: $130

Nice Deck, Seems pretty solid, I would just consider adding some of the following tribal cards

lagotripha on Pioneer GW Convoke Tokens

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.

In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing  Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.

Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.

Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey  Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip

In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

Thanks SP3CTR3_chelts, this also my first modern deck. I think Leyline of Abundance would be great for this deck, so I might experiment with running a few of those.

Also I used to run a set of Dwynen's Elite . I noticed my hand would often run out if the game lasted too long or somebody had a Wrath of God up their sleeve. That's why I started running cards like Winding Way and Elvish Visionary . Do you think it's a worthy tradeoff?

The sideboard is a definite work in progress. I just listed a few cards that I used to run in the deck.

Love this deck it is very similar to my fist modem (except i went three colour and regretted it with my simple mana base :P)

May i recommend a couple copies of Leyline of Abundance it is very potent with your turn 1 plays :). also with 8 turn 1 ramps and 4 cards that can fetch lands (not that they normally would) turn 2 you do not need 22 lands 20 would probably suffice (especially with the leylines.

also as your intent is to put pressure on quickly Dwynen's Elite might be a nice change to Elvish Visionary .

But all in all the deck looks fun :D (sideboard needs a little attention though)

I don't think you should be playing Collected Company in this list. It only has 16 targets and in practice that number will be smaller cause some of those targets will be on the field or in your hand already.

In a similar vein, Dwynen's Elite 's ETB will fizzle most of the time in the early game cause you aren't playing a ton of early elves. I'm not really sure what you are going for in terms of the deck, so I can't recommend you anything but I hope it works out for you.

Depending on your budget, there are a few expensive cards that would make the deck a lot better; namely Cavern , Palace , the other 3 Companies (that is arguably the best card in the deck), that's all I can think of off the top of my head in terms of expensive cards.

You'll also want to complete some playsets to make the deck more consistent, creatures like Heritage Druid , Dwynen's Elite and Elvish Clancaller are (in my considerable experience with Elves) definite 4-ofs. Heritage Druid enables your most busted starts, Dwynen's Elite helps a lot in the grindy matchups, almost always being a 2-for-1, and Elvish Clancaller helps our little green men to stand up to the big scary creatures in modern.

Scavenging Ooze is an honorary elf, helping a lot against graveyard based decks, as well as the grindier ones that kill our guys.

Your sideboard choices don't seem optimal, there are a few cards that are just bad in modern (looking at you, Nylea's Presence and Overrun ) and some others that are just not ideal for elves ( Grafdigger's Cage non-bo with Company , for example).

Things like Beast Whisperer haven't impressed me, as it's only really useful when you're ahead and have cards in hand, once you've had your hand ripped apart or board wiped, you're likely to just be casting a 4 mana 2/3, which is embarrassingly bad by modern's standards. There are a few others that seem odd to me as well.

Take a look at this to see my preferred build and card choices
