Elves of Deep Shadow Discussion

MrTristan19 on Making Gorgons Great Again: Sisters of Stone Death

Your deck looks sweet! I think from here you could find more ways to give your commander trample, such as Nylea, God of the Hunt and more tutors, Increasing Ambition is a budget favorite of mine, but you can save up for the more expensive ones if you feel the deck needs more consistency. I'd also recommend taking out a few of the lure spells for more draw spells. Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Harmonize, Sign in Blood, even Rishkar's Expertise would all greatly improve the deck. Also, cheap mana dorks like Elvish Mystic and Elves of Deep Shadow can help you get off the ground faster.

Hey thanks for the feedback! These are some great suggestions. Black Market seems like a perfect fit. I especially like the Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat/Falkenrath Noble simply because they're cheap guys that do nice things while they're around, but I won't be heartbroken if I end up sacrificing them. And messing with this deck a bit is making me think that my concern that there aren't enough little guys was right, so I might try pulling some of the big stuff for either some of your suggestions or some cheap guys that I already have on me. Tukatongue Thallid/Llanowar Elves/Elves of Deep Shadow/Rendclaw Trow were on the original list and didn't make the final cut, but maybe they deserve to be in there.

Any thoughts on which of the big guys might be worth cutting? They all seem like they fit pretty well...

I know that you had asked me personal for some input on your deck, and that you had planned to do a complete rewrite up of it. So with that in mine I got a list of some stuff you should probably consider running.

Mana Dorks

Birds of Paradise

Boreal Druid

Elves of Deep Shadow

Elvish Mystic

Fyndhorn Elves

Llanowar Elves

Mana Rocks

obligatory Sol Ring

Charcoal Diamond

Coldsteel Heart

Fellwar Stone

Fire Diamond

Golgari Signet

Gruul Signet

Moss Diamond

Rakdos Signet

Since kresh benefits from things dying mana dorks In my opinion are the way to go as after you have used them to ramp you can sac them or just freely let them die to pump up kresh. I have some other suggestions but I cannot give them until you have updated your list with the what ever changes you are working on at the moment.

I would take out Arbor Elf for Dawntreader Elk - its beter to have more land and sac somethingElves of Deep Shadow for Devoted Druid - it can sac its self and wont cost you lifeWood Elves for Yavimaya Elder - yet again it can sac its self and its better value

and add a Thief of Blood itll kill plains walkers and take +1/+1 and give you something big to sac with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

Zunaechst mal gefaellt mir die manabase nicht besonders. 9 waelder sind nicht genug dafuer, dass du eine hand ohne gruene sources nicht halten kannst.

In dem zuge, und weil die einfach zu langsam sind fuer das was zu zu erreichen versuchst, wuerde ich vermutlich die Leaf Gilder und Lifespring Druid durch Elves of Deep Shadow ersetzen.

Mit den zusaetzlichen 1-drops koenntest du dann die Thornbow Archer durch irgendwas cooleres ersetzen (die gefallen mir wirklich nich, relativ zu den manadorks und den high-impact 2-drops), zB durch Wren's Run Vanquisher (die ich fr ziemlich starke beatdown-elfen halte). Damit waere schwarz dann zu nem splash degradiert, was wesentlich angenehmer fuer die manabase waere.

Und der rest is halt ne frage des ausprobieren welche karten gut performen. ich koennte mir zB gut vorstellen, dass das deck mehr Dwynen's Elite gebrauchen knnte. Vllt nen 3-3 split zwischen Elvish Visionary und Sylvan Messenger, je nacht wie die manasituation regelmaessig aussieht.

Also Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim and Joraga Treespeaker are very important, while Traverse the Ulvenwald is unplayable trash in cube.

Ok, so I'm a fairly major competitive discard lover, and there are some fantastic tools in black and black green you should look at. First and foremost Collective Brutality- It protects you in the earlier turns and fuels the yard in a really efficient way. Lotleth Troll and Zombie Infestation could similarly provide earlt game blockers. You have two options deciding graveyard creatures, big hasty win game now creatures, or creatures with an etb so large it tilts the board in your favour. Pick one or the other, as it will lend the deck consistancy. I'd either go all in on gaea's revenge and Craterhoof Behemoth/Timbermare or Massacre Wurm/. If you go for etb creatures Impromptu Raid is worth a look, although it might still be slow. Vengevine decks exist in this format. Unburial Rites is traditional for ressurection and a lot of combo decks run it. Delirium Skeins and Raven's Crime can help soak up your opponents control package and leave room for duress in the sideboard.

On that note, acceleration. Pentad Prism leaves mana open for instants and accelerates to 4 mana t2. Sakura-Tribe Elder will get lands and be sheoldredable should you need to hard cast stuff. Elves of Deep Shadow will help soak up creature removal before you spend multiple cards to get Path to Exiled, and get those key cards cast.Card advantage tools like Phyrexian Arena will be neccesary when an opponent has a hand of Negate/Cancel/Chronomaton/Path to Exile.

If you want to play less casually, the tools to have something pretty dangerous for fnm are there. Alternatively, Grim Return and Makeshift Mannequin are instant speed and hilarious.
