Would you maybe consider running a couple Elvish Archdruid s just because of your 10 other elves in the deck to power them up and also produce more mana for your hydras?

So after thinking on it for a few hours the best I came up with was Nature's Claim and Touch of Vitae . Not sure if Nature's Claim is the best removal option, but it's cheap and perhaps I could even use it on my own Rancor in a pinch. I'm particularly proud of finding the Touch of Vitae . It's may seem like a strange choice, but it combos nicely with our Elvish Archdruid or Priest of Titania . When played on either of those cards it's almost always, at worst, a free cycling card.

Hey, you didn't include a link to your deck or have a Rhys deck in your profile?

I think token producers who are creatures or other permanents (Planeswalkers) far outweigh instants and sorceries because permanents can be repeatable sources of token creation much like Rhys himself is. Many repeatable sources of card advantage is one of most important things to have in multiplayer Commander. Walkers survive most board wipes that are played in Commander and board wipes are a big problem for tokens. Green gives you a lot of creature tutor options making it much easier to tutor for a specific creature then an instant or sorcery.

Rhys is a token producer from the Command Zone so technically you don't need a lot of other token producers, but cards like Mycoloth and Tendershoot Dryad can be no mana cost token engines each turn. Elf ramp is good with Rhys: Priest of Titania , Elvish Archdruid , and Joraga Treespeaker and Walker token producers are good cards to ramp into: Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Garruk Wildspeaker , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar . Walkers are busted with Doubling Season which is a good card have with tokens.

This deck would love to have some Beast Whisperer s. Since you don't have Collected Company , this guy is the next best thing. Especially once you have Elvish Archdruid , you'll have more than enough mana to pull off some great turns. I play B/G elves myself, and I can attest to how powerful Heritage Druid is. He can lead to dumping your entire hand out on turn 2, followed up by some card draw and playing more cards on turn 3.

Hi, i am returning the favor of commenting each others deck.

I would prefer Staff of Domination in this deck. you have tons of mana, and after you have Elvish Archdruid or Priest of Titania and it gives 5 mana, you got infinite mana, life, cards with it.

Since the mana isn't issue i would change Naturalize to Krosan Grip because of the split second.

I don't see much use of Alpha Status or Heedless One Tribal Unity . I would use Joraga Warcaller . Also 4 Wellwisher is kinda overkill?

Have you considered combo Nettle Sentinel with Heritage Druid ? if you got 2 sentinels in battle field and at least one heritage druid, whenever you play 1 elf you can untap sentinels and tap em and that one more elf to 3 mana.

Also cards to consider would be Summoner's Pact and Green Sun's Zenith to find elf's you need Concordant Crossroads Regal Force for cards and Scavenging Ooze against animators

That's absolutely fair, enpc. Obviously I can only suggest how I'd imagine these builds to be done. Though I played a brief stint with selesnya Selvala which was very fun, but far too high risk (though ymmv). To that end, the following are some busted includes for speeding up your combo:

Sequestered Stash - this land isn't in this list - though it is 4 mana, it is a land that basically draws 5 cards to begin a saffi-loop, surely?

Deserted Temple - if your Gaea's Cradle is likely to add all of the juicy green mana - then why not an extra time?

Wirewood Lodge - With Priest of Titania , this is a tough squeeze, but with beefy mana-dorks (like Elvish Archdruid or Avacyn's Pilgrim in a pinch) this is a smart option.

Arbor Elf - before running Voyaging Satyr this card does mostly the same for cheaper. Earthcraft - this with any saffi loop will let you generate infinite mana - pretty nice - considering you often need that juicy burst of mana. Plus it's also an efficient accelerator for the cost.

Altar of bone - costs a dork/dryad arbor - finds your win con.

Runic armasaur - One of the greatest draw-sources in green (besides sylvan library) - this is an incredibly efficient piece that just draws cards from most deck styles aside from storm. Likely to be another meta-include but definitely worth considering.

Wirewood Symbiote & Scryb Ranger are both excellent tech vs removal and both do similar to Quirion Ranger .

Angelic Renewal - combos with Sun Titan & sac outlet, meaning that you can win despite Saffi being hated. Likely another maybeboard in a stax-heavy meta.

Another question, have you considered any cards like staff of domination in order to draw the deck and win with infinite mana?

At any rate: I'm going to proxy this deck up and test it out some in my cEDH pods soon, so I'll let you know how the hands feel.

SynergyBuild on Yisan is running slowly.

$20ish Budget way to make Yisan very fast:

Add in Arbor Elf , Fyndhorn Elves , Wirewood Symbiote , Seeker of Skybreak , Temur Sabertooth , Priest of Titania , Elvish Archdruid , Boreal Druid , Devoted Druid , Great Oak Guardian , Autumn's Veil , Nature's Claim , Natural State , Caustic Caterpillar , Reclamation Sage , Desert Twister , Copperhorn Scout , Wood Elves , Somberwald Stag , Manglehorn , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Leaf Gilder , Heart Warden , Fyndhorn Elder

Drop out Taunting Elf , Verdant Force , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Wild Beastmaster , Worldspine Wurm , Pathbreaker Ibex , Mycoloth , Kamahl, Fist of Krosa , Gyre Sage , Giant Adephage , Elvish Piper , Cultivator of Blades , Bramble Elemental , Avenger of Zendikar , Tooth and Nail , See the Unwritten , Triumph of the Hordes , Overrun , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Genesis Wave , Explosive Vegetation , Zendikar Resurgent , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Umbral Mantle , Lifecrafter's Bestiary

Total of 26 swaps.

The switches lists speed the deck up and make it win through an easy and efficient combo, all fetchable by Yisan. The combo uses Great Oak Guardian , Temur Sabertooth , and Wirewood Symbiote . With these and enough mana producing creatures, you get infinitely large creatures or with 1 more mana, infinitely large creatures and infinite mana, and untaps which can be put into Yisan to fetch Caterhoof and give the team trample.

All together, the deck will also run enough early-game interaction like Caustic Caterpillar , Manglehorn , Reclamation Sage , Natural State , Nature's Claim , the already run Lignify and Acidic Slime , and catch-alls like Desert Twister and Yisan fetchables like Somberwald Stag .

With all of this in mind, it is a little weak to removal, but with Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth both fetchable with Yisan, I feel it can be okay.

How does this sound?

Elvish Archdruid , Elvish Clancaller and Bramblewood Paragon all seem like they would be solid in your deck, I'm not sure you want Hunting Triad or Gaea's Anthem when you have tribal lords which pump your creatures...
