Eland Umbra Discussion

I'm not sure about Eland Umbra since I already run Unflinching Courage as my fetchable aura that also has trample and lifelink. The Totem Armor sure is nice but i ran a couple of Gaddock Teeg on the sideboard to protect me from wraths and Spellskite to protect from targeted destruction so I'm not sure it would be a good trade.
That said I'll gladly test the idea if you guys could just help me with what would I remove for it.

Good idea. Still upvoted the deck despite the ugly Comic Sans MS and green color.

Consider Totem Armor?
Might be cost heavy,Mammoth Umbra

+1, cool deck!
It seems like a single copy of Eland Umbra could be situationally great in this build.

Hey man.Actually I already have the full deck in paper except for Dryad Arbor, Inquisition of Kozilek, Wooded Foothills and Rest in Peace. I plan to buy them at my local store tomorrow anyway. I do think it could be a little hard for us to trade anyway since I'm from Brazil kkk.
The main reason I'm not running (and don't plan to) Noble Hierarch is because of the price. I'm happy with Arbor elf, mainly because they can provide all four color according to what land I have in game, and black is actually more important than blue on the deck.
I did consider Eland Umbra as a 1-of but I do not know what I could take out for it. I'm afraid if Doran is Destroyed before damage it just does nothing. But the protection from Fatal Push is nice so maybe I could remove a Lead the Stampede but I fear I may be with an empty hand too soon.
I had two Nyx-Fleece Ram on my maindeck but after an experient friend's advice I put one of them on the sideboard since to increase the control part of the deck a little and I liked the change ever since.
I have a couple of Fatal Push I could include on the deck, but I still do not know what to take out. Maybe if I start to be too overpowered by creatures I'll consider putting it in, but as for now creatures are not my main concern when playing this deck since it has really good defense.
Greater Auramancy is a great card and I do wish I had two of them, one for this deck and the other for my Zur the Enchanter commander (Zur Enchanter Tokens Only Fly) but I find it too expensive for the moment as well and Spellskite is already doing a good job at protection enchantments here.

Hey there! Sweet deck you have here! A few thoughts:
- Eland Umbra seems pretty sweet when you have both Zur and Doran.
- Your removal looks a tad low; maybe some number of Fatal Pushes?
- They're expensive, but Noble Hierarchs are probably better than Arbor Elfs.
- Nyx-Fleece Ram is really good here; I'd strongly consider running the full 4.
- Maybe a single Greater Auramancy as part of your Zur toolbox?
Other than that, this deck looks pretty cool! As a last note, if you're looking to build this deck in paper, I have a couple of Spellskites that I'm looking to trade, and I'd be happy to trade them to you if you'd like.

As for cards to replace those I would suggest Sol Ring, Ajani's Chosen Windborn Muse Spirit Mantle Sigil of the Empty Throne Journey to Nowhere Oblivion Ring Nomad Mythmaker Day of Judgment Umbra Mystic Eland Umbra Enduring Ideal Starfield of Nyx Ethereal Armor Lifelink Eidolon of Countless Battles Swiftfoot Boots Karmic Guide Battle Mastery Hero of Iroas Winds of Rath Kor Spiritdancer Arrest Celestial Mantle and Three Dreams. Like I said these are just suggestions as it is your deck! This will just allow you to keep your pillow fort and then swing over the top! There's a lot of equipment you can use as well but that's usually the more pricey route

Love the deck name! Very befitting. My Doran build I'm working on is vastly different, but I like seeing a different deck like this for comparison. I'm thinking of trying to utilize the treefolk tribal. That said, I have a lot of non-treefolk tribal cards that aren't included here too. Here are some suggestions to give you food for thought:
Birds of Paradise, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Oketra the True, Vhati il-Dal, Vizier of the Menagerie, Seedborn Muse, Pontiff of Blight, Ulvenwald Observer, Angel of Serenity, Craterhoof Behemoth, Aven Warcraft, Foul Renewal, Eland Umbra, Spidersilk Armor, Mirari's Wake, Sight of the Scalelords and Volrath's Stronghold.
I second the suggestions for Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Abzan Beastmaster and Defense of the Heart. Survival of the Fittest also couldn't hurt. Burgeoning is another strong suggestion, gonna add that to my list of potential additions to my deck.
My list is much more creature-oriented, but I think Doran ought to be a creature deck first, so maybe scaling back a little of the targeted removal would be a good idea. However, I don't know who you're up against either, so perhaps you feel you need it worse than I do.
