Elvish Archdruid Discussion

Lucky_Dutch on Mean Green Elves Machine

@TheRedGoat This deck is all about the creatures with help from the artifacs and enchantments.

The goals is to get as many elves out give them +X+X and trample and attack.This isnt so much a combo deck, but a couple of elves an a Priest of Titania for example + Staff of Domination gives infenite mana.

Genesis Wave is in the most cases also a game winner because every permanent i draw goes onto the battlefield..also Aetherflux Reservoir does the trick with the right card in play such as Nissa Revane and Wellwisher, but thats more of a gimmick

ofcourse bordwipe is a problem but there are multiple ways for me to regenerate and i alway keep some mana untapped so i can regenerate the most important creatures. (exept Wrath of God and such)

The main way i play is to get some elves and my commander, then i want a Priest of Titania or Wirewood Channeler or Elvish Archdruid then try to tutor Craterhoof Behemoth asap.

The thing is that it always play out, i'm not going to say that this deck is perfect but this deck wins allot. I cant arm myself against everything en there will be decks who will destroy mine.

Becaus 95% of this deck is low cmc it goes realy fast.. I could realy go into details but my english writing isnt that good hahaha

Go play test it.. you will see..

hope i explained it a bit, if not.. just tell me and ill grab a good cup a coffee and do my best

Emzed on Eldritch Dragons 2.0

I think with Eldritch Evolution giving you access to the exact creature you need, you should have a wider range of options instead of simply 4 Thundermaw Hellkites. While the card is definitely fantastic, wouldn't it be great to be able to grab a Stormbreath Dragon against a deck with Path to Exiles? Or a Glorybringer when your opponent's Elvish Archdruid, Steel Overseer or Lord of Atlantis threatens to overwhelm you? Those cards might individually be slightly worse than Thundermaw, but the added flexibility seems well worth it to me.
Hooting Mandrills is really hard to enable unless you draw one of your copies of Commune with the Gods. With only 4 Communes in the deck, Mandrils will often rot in your hand for while. Both of those cards are only good if you a) draw Commune with the Gods, b) draw Hooting Mandrills or hit if off Commune, c) also draw Eldritch Evolution, d) your Mandrils doesn't get countered or removed before you get to sac it to Evolution and finally, e) you haven't drawn your single copy of Atarka yet, or milled it with Commune. Sure, you could just get a Thundermaw instead, but that doesn't seem worth all the effort.
Dragon Egg is another card that only really works if you draw another card to go with it, Eldritch Evolution in this case. Otherwise, all it does is sit there, hoping for your opponent to attack into it, and your great pay off is not much better than Wind Drake.
Your ramp package seems solid, but instead of Birds and SfT, you could run Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl. They cost the same and do the same thing on their own, but generate extra mana whenever your Elf gets to untap a land enchanted by Utopia Sprawl. So with no real downside you get the potential to be more explosive.
The Siege Rhinos in your sideboard are really odd. What is your thinking behind that choice? Couldn't Obstinate Baloth fulfil that role?

This list has the best reactive 3-drops you'll find (Reclamation Sage, Eternal Witness). If you're looking for something a little more proactive in that slot, maybe try Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (which ShaperSavant only recently took out), Elvish Archdruid/Ezuri, Renegade Leader (depending on how elf-heavy your deck is), or Fierce Empath (I'm always glad to have a Great Oak Guardian in my hand, you never know when you'll need one).

Rzepkanut on Rashmi of the Blind Eternities

I have been having a blast playing Rashmi on magic online recently. My best suggestion is to use elves as your ramp. Getting her in play turn 3 is great, and the way elves synergies work you get even bigger mana later on. Rashmi is an elf so Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, & Elvish Guidance are great, especially when you have all the other 1 cmc mana elves too like Llanowar Elves, etc. Karametra's Acolyte, Curse of the Swine and Restock are other mvps for me. Here's a link to my list for you:

Happy gathering!

NewHorizons on Rhys the Redeemed v2

Fair enough especially on angel of jubilation. My point with cathar's crusade and collective blessing is just that you could run an Overrun-like effect that's cheaper and more immediate in their place. I also think that 9/10 you'll wamt more mana instead of life. I'd play Shamanic Revelation over Mouth and Slate of Ancestry.

Also Ezuri, Renegade Leader doesn't need full elfball to work. His regeneration ability works for your commander amd you have enough elves to seriously play Priest of Titania and Elvish Archdruid which is more than enough to make ezuri worth it. I'd slot it in where the champion of lambholt is.

It may be a little low in mana; I haven't quite found the sweet spot yet. The problem with 20 lands is that, with too many lands, the card draw fizzles a lot, since our main drawing comes from casting creatures with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and Lifecrafter's Bestiary out. If we draw into a couple lands in a row, that can sometimes end the streak. Personally, I don't seem to have an issue getting a land and 1 drop in my hand, but early removal definitely kills our mana :(

I almost always have Druid of the Anima or Elvish Harbinger on the field before I'm ready to cast Banefire, so I actually haven't run into the red issue either. However, adding some red/green dual-lands would be safer; I was just being cheap!

I really like the Chord of Calling suggestion! Elvish Harbinger also helps find Ezuri, Renegade Leader (and Elvish Archdruid, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, or Nullmage Shepherd), but the Chord of Calling is definitely faster and more reliable.

Wow these suggestions are much appreciated! I do feel the preators aren't on theme but many of the larger treefolk are duds and I was making some sacrifices to get the deck to where I wanted competitively. I will definitely pick up a Coat of Arms as I already have the Elvish Archdruid and Joraga Warcaller. The Coat will also help the larger treefolk feel more impactful.
