Elvish Archdruid Discussion

MindAblaze on Nissa Revane or Nissa Genesis ...

6 days ago

IMO Id run Genesis Mage. My 60 card Genesis Wave deck is built around Nissa Revane, but OG Nissa just isnt strong enough in Commander, unless your meta is slow enough that the lifegain matters.

Untapping a Elvish Archdruid, Priest of Titania, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and/or a Gaea's Cradle is nothing to sneeze at.

Haven't got ahold of Priest of Titania yet but was able to temporarily sub in Elvish Archdruid until I can pick one up.

Dismal on Stomping Elvish Warriors

1 week ago

Like it, but with a couple of questions. 1: Why don't you have Collected Company or Chord of Calling? Your deck is definitely unique, but this is elves. Their real strength in modern relies heavily on those cards to find a key elf (usually Ezuri, Renegade Leader) or to rebuild after a wrath. 2: You're not running Elvish Archdruid... Might I ask why? Its super good in just about any elf deck, as it ramps you really hard. 3: This is not super necessary (just make the deck more competitive) but you should splash a color. Splashing black gives you access to good removal and disruption, plus it allows you to run a little card called Shaman of the Pack, which is super good in elves. Splashing white gives you Path to Exile and the classic Devoted Druid plus Vizier of Remedies combo, which can be abused with Ezuri, Renegade Leader for infinite pump on your elves.

Aorosco14 on Chord of Calling-Joraga Warcaller

2 weeks ago

Let's say I have a total of 11 vanilla elves on my board and a single Elvish Archdruid. I tap EA for 12 floating mana, and then use 4 to Chord of Calling for a Joraga Warcaller, leaving me with 8 floating. JW enters the battlefield, but am I allowed to use my remaining 8 mana to (Multi)kick it 3 times? Probably a stupid question, but thanks none the less :)

Mandalorian on A Few Elves? How Bad Can it be?

All the cards I think I could possibly suggest are already in your Maybeboard!

There is Devoted Druid and Cloudstone Curio if you ever want to make it a combo deck instead of stompy

Copperhorn Scout can be really good at untapping Elvish Archdruid for a lot of mana after attacking or Chord of Calling after attacking

I would suggest 1 Pendelhaven as it can allow your 1/1 dorks to be more aggressive when you need them to be.

Collected Company is obviously excellent and aside from that either Chord of Calling or Lead the Stampede should replace Nylea's Presence. Some do one or the other and some do a 2/2 or 3/1 split. Either way I think one of these should definitely be mainboard. Lead the Stampede is excellent at refilling your hand and Chord of Calling can get that 1 Ezuri you need to win on the spot. Both are powerful, though I lean more towards Chord since it allows you to play singleton hate cards you can tutor for in sideboarded games.

Joraga Warcaller is a pretty awkward card with Collected Company because you cant have it come in with counters to pump the whole team. In a Coco build I would cut it and a couple Visionaries and 1-2 Champions to make room for Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel. The most explosive starts possible with Elf decks involve Heritage Druid. Ex-

T1 Forest, Elvish Mystic

T2 Forest, tap Elvish Mystic and play Heritage Druid, tap both forest and play Dwynen's Elite, tap 3 untapped elves, play Elvish Archdruid

T3 Forest, tap 3 Forest for Ezuri, Renegade Leader, tap Elvish Archdruid for 6 , use Ezuri, Renegade Leader's overrun ability, attack for 20 with trample.

Turn 3 you can deal 20 damage, but an explosive start like that doesn't happen without Heritage Druid, its just not possible. With Nettle Sentinel you can tap it for mana using Heritage Druid cast a spell, untap the sentinel, and do it again, essentially playing out your whole hand.

Anyway, Elves are my favorite Modern tribe, I hope this helped a bit! Happy Brewing

I think you have a decent start to a good Elf deck here! My suggestions would be to go up to the full amount of Elvish Archdruids since it is the best lord you have.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader has the ability to give all your elves +3+3 and trample repeatedly! Very good and very game ending as a backup to Shaman. He also protects your other elves from being killed with his regenerate ability.

Dwynen's Elite is very good at helping the Elf decks go wide

Lead the Stampede can help you refill your hand after you've played it out, creating a second wave of elves to be cast and making very hard for your opponent to keep up.

Some black sources for Shaman would be good as well. Nothing incredibly expensive but there is cheap fixing like Llanowar Wastes should be enough

lactobacillus on Elves

Hey man a friend of mine has a very similar deck of this, and he uses Nettle Sentinel for comboing with Heritage Druid. Some Elvish Visionary are also present for draw power. The main objective is to ramp as many elves as possible on battlefield and Elvish Archdruid into Ezuri, Renegade Leader to make your little budies hit like a truck. He also uses some Westvale Abbey  Flip in case of a plan B.

Nice work and good luck
