I was in your exact shoes with my meta, that is until I built Edric, Spymaster of Trest. He basically serves as a Propaganda which allows you to set up and start stacking your extra turn cards as early as turn 3 (in my experience) to win. Here is a prime example on how the deck should be built:

A Song of Turns and Dongers (cEDH)

Good luck!

I have two aggro decks that are fairly successful.

Jazal Goldmane - pump as many tokens as possible, ramp up to 9 mana as fast as possible so you can cast and activate Jazal on a single turn. Fragile, but explosive.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest - run tons of one mana evasive creatures like Slither Blade. Dump your hand, refill your hand, repeat. You will usually have more creatures than even token decks. Finish with cards like Biomass Mutation, Beastmaster Ascension, etc. Blue makes him less fragile than Jazal since you can counter boardwipes.

Asyriel while I appreciate the comment, there is no way this would ever be competitive. Competitive tends to win by turn 4 or 5 and combat is usually only a means to draw cards, (think Tymna the Weaver or Edric, Spymaster of Trest). The deck is fun, and can be good it still has a long way to go before it even approaches that level of speed.

I suggest Edric, Spymaster of Trest. His ability as a Commander drawing cards is a huge bonus for being aggressive. Good with little flying creatures, big flying creatures, unblockable creatures, extra turns and counterspells to stop board wipes.

DankStompy: Edric, Spymaster of Trest is an example of an aggro control commander. But it is quite a niche build.

Saw your forum post. Honestly I'm kind of confused what you're trying to do with the lsit. You have a maish mash of competitive and non-competitive cards here, as well as a mix of themes and combos that don't really synergise wll with each other.

Start off by picking 2 different win conditions (e.g. infinitely large Kresh, Walking Ballista/Triskelion infinite damage) and then go from there.

Also, it sounds like you're aiming for a stax deck. Aggro control is loosely this, however would be more akin to an Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck which wails on players while keeping up a clutch of counterspells. You're not playing this kind of deck. Stax works well with your commander as you're probably looking to play some kind of "make everybody repeatedly sacrifice everything" kind of deck.

Apart from GB, elves can pretty easily go GW with Rhys the Redeemed or Selvala, Explorer Returned or it can go GU with Ezuri, Claw of Progress or Edric, Spymaster of Trest. One could even make an arguement for RG elves simply because the only real required color for elves is green and any additional color is just the dressing on your leafy greens.
