Dwynen's Elite Discussion

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.

ModernStormPlayer996 I think same as rothgar13. It just seems too slow and clunky.

Otherwise, great job!

If you want to take out Cloudstone Curios just add Dwynen's Elite and Shaman of the Pack.

I mean it has synergy with Dwynen's Elite, Elvish Visionary, and Shaman of the Pack outside of the combo.

The Devoted Druid combo is definitely good enough to play maindeck, in fact it sees play in modern. If you were to do this I would cut the Shaman of the Pack and a couple Dwynen's Elite, I think that deck only really needs green and maybe white for Vizier of Remedies. The more important thing is having something to do with the mana.

Thanks for commenting.

Well, yes, I do know some things about elves. I believe the strongest modern elf combo with these days is using for copies of Shaman of the Pack, Dwynen's Elite and Collected Company. I believe the only expensive card of these is Company.

It lets you do an absurd amount of damage straight to the face of your opponents. And since Shaman of the Pack's effect is a ETB trigger, removal spells won't cause you so much trouble.

Other possible cards who would make this strategy consistent are Elvish Mystic for early mana, Elvish Visionary for card advantage, and if you want some tutors Chord of Calling is probably the best one.

If you want some more in spot technical info, ask me and I get into detail.

See ya!

Hi, Nature comes with Skullclamp add that back in place of Implement of Ferocity. Clamp can be busted with the tokens Freyalise's can continually create. Drawing two cards from one mana. Clamp is just a really good artifact with Elves in general. Nature also comes with Swiftfoot Boots add it back in place of something. Even though you can't use it to protect your Commander, she isn't a creature, you can use it to protect (hexproof) another Elf as well as give an Elf haste which is good with many Elves.

Some other budget cards including other Elves that I've found to be good with the Elves are:

These can have much more impact and replace cards of the same casting cost here. Cards like Primal Command, Lead the Stampede and Sylvan Messenger are important because of the budget. There's going to be a lack of good creature tutor cards because most are not budget options, they're price is too expensive. These cards can help to find a potential lot of Elves or creatures and put them into your hand.

More draw spells are another way to overcome the lack of creature tutors. Shamanic Revelation is another as well as better Collective Unconscious and Harmonize is just a good draw spell for budget green.

Sword of the Paruns is the budget infinite mana combo artifact for Elves. It in combination with Elvish Archdruid or Priest of Titania and other Elves in your control can be used to make infinite green mana which can then be used to play a lot of spells or activate Ezuri, Renegade Leader's overrun ability a lot of times.

The four one mana, budget mana Elves are Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves and Arbor Elf. You're playing two of them I suggest adding the other two.

I also recommend that you add 4-5x more Forests to the manabase, giving you 34-35x lands. The avg. CMC (converted mana cost) is 3.6 this is high for only using 30x lands.

Good luck with your deck.
