Elves of Deep Shadow Discussion

I like it, +1. A few thoughts:

I wouldn't run Druid of the Cowl, Leaf Gilder and Lifespring Druid when you haven't yet included Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise or Priest of Titania. Consider Somberwald Sage as well - turn one dork, turn two Sage sets you up for turn three Prossh.

Obelisk of Jund is strictly worse than Darksteel Ingot, and Kodama's Reach will probably prove more useful than Pristine Talisman. Also, I'd replace Wild Wanderer with Farhaven Elf. Ashnod's Altar and Cryptolith Rite offer cheap sources of mana boom.

Consider Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact (perhaps to supplement the Butcher of Malakir, perhaps to replace him).

I'd also try to get rid of lands that unconditionally enter tapped, unless the land is quite good. Guildgates and lifegain lands are definitely less valuable than lands like Luxury Suite or Spire Garden, Smoldering Marsh etc.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

I think messy is an understatement. (lol) This is just everywhere, you need to find some form of winning condition outside of just creature board presence.

Arashin War Beast, Ghastly Conscription and Wildcall can be cut here, you really aren't relying on Morph cards for this.

You have some pieces here that can turn this into a much smoother deck. I'd suggest you get more Elvish Mystics, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Grand Warlord Radha, Radha, Heir to Keld and Zhur-Taa Druids or Whisperer of the Wilds for quick mana ramp. I'd also keep Blisterpod, Call the Scions and Terrarion but have 3-4 copies of all these cards.

This is just a start, more things need to be done, but I can put only so much on each comment.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

You can have a lot more fun with this if add a few other cards, specifically something like Conspiracy to make everything a spider subtype. Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Frostweb Spider, Graverobber Spider, Juvenile Gloomwidow, Renowned Weaver, Penumbra Spider and Spider Spawning would be good additions to this. I'd also use Elves of Deep Shadow with your Llanowar Elves so you have another mana producer. You could also use Blowfly Infestation or Crumbling Ashes go with the -1/-1 counters.

+1! I love budget elves, I made Budget Elves Modern a while back, but I love this one too!

Could you splash black for Shaman of the Pack, you can use Elves of Deep Shadow for fixing if you want! The reason is that with Shaman of the Pack, the deck as an out to decks like turbo-fog and Worship decks other than the sole Reclamation Sage.

Tossing in a sideboard might also help!

+1! I really like the deck especially with how budget it is, could Elves of Deep Shadow fit?

Thanks SynergyBuild!

I think a bit more ramp would help out as well. Basically I'm trying to stick with cards I already own but I've cards based on your suggestions, leaning towards bringing more lands in play instead of some mana dorks. I'm not opposed to adding creature mana sources, I'm just not sure which cards I would cut for them.

Of the cards you've listed, I already have Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Elves of Deep Shadow, Arbor Elf, and the Wall of Roots. I would probably lean towards cutting the Mindcrank, Windfall, and some of the single target removal to add them in right now.

SynergyBuild on Damia, Sage of Stone deck

+1! I really like Damia! I think a bit more ramp can help you out, do you like any of the following:

Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Deathrite Shaman, Boreal Druid, and Elves of Deep Shadow

Arbor Elf, Utopia Sprawl, and Wild Growth

Talisman of Dominance, Wall of Roots, and Fellwar Stone

Thanks zingzang, The birds of paradise, Elvish Mystic and Elves of Deep Shadow are there because not only are they really cheap they provide fodder so you can bring them back early on to sac them to gain experience counters, so you can grab massive things. But yeah- I see the argument for both your Yavimaya's but the rest require mana and this deck is more about ramping fast early and then gaining experience to be able to always out value your opponent because your creatures are never dying. The deck is also trying it's best to be budget but also viable, that's why there was no cards from your comment in the 6-drop part included- I wanted to but they were to high in price. I will be including Sepulchral Primordial and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip- Birthing Pod is too high but I also wanted him. The deck doesn't need more card draw though Necropotence can be added if you want to. I will also be adding Altar of Dementia and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Writing this I then saw Fauna Shaman I will most definitely be adding that. With the budget Mikaeus, the Unhallowed was worth it to me.
