Elvish Archdruid Discussion

Firebird on Modern Elvish Swarm

Hi! I run an Elf deck, as well, and it's quite strong (managed to get a turn 4 245-damage win today), and it has gone through many iterations. So I have some experience with Elves. Here is that deck, if you want to check it out for inspiration.

First thing I would do is probably up your land count by at least two. I run 18, myself, with 20 mana dorks in the deck. There's a ton of mana generation but even then, 18 lands is pretty low. You only need one or two to pop off, but you want to have some kind of backup.

Second, I'd find room for Dwynen's Elite. After a lot of testing I actually just use it in place of Nettle Sentinel because it combos so much better with Heritage Druid and, now, Marwyn.

Collected Company is immensely powerful with all this mana, and I highly recommend finding room for at least a couple, if not four. Also, Lead the Stampede isn't flashy, but in such a creature-heavy deck, it's an extremely efficient way to refill your hand.

I love Nissa, but I'm not sure she's necessary for Elves. Life gain isn't used except for countering burn or the mirror, and there are easier ways to do that, I think. You definitely want a more reliable way to put out Ezuri, so CoCo and/or LTS are good for that. You have the Harbinger, too, but we want something a little more consistent. You might consider upping your count of Ezuri, for that matter.

I love the Immaculate Magistrate + Joraga Warcaller combo, too. Used it for a while. But in the end, it's slow and fairly easily stopped. Also, CoCo (which you will want to use) doesn't hit the Magistrate. Another reason CoCo is so good is because you can do it on your opponent's end step, throw out something like an Elvish Archdruid, and have it ready to go on your next turn.

Instead of or in addition to Elvish Promenade, maybe consider Hunting Triad. The nice part is that the reinforce ability doesn't count as casting so it can't be easily countered. You can either put out 3 tokens to power up Elvish Archdruid, or put the counters directly on Joraga Warcaller to pump up all your Elves.

These are just a few basic ideas to start with. Take a look at my deck for some more ideas, especially on the sideboard, and I'll post again with some more ideas soon.

Elf ball is probably the way to go. 4x Llanowar Elves, 4x Elvish Mystic, 4x Arbor Elf, 4x Elvish Archdruid, 4x Lead the Stampede, a couple of Ezuri, Renegade Leaders, 4x Elvish Visionary for draw.

And most of those will be in the elves vs inventors precon deck.

anephites no Wild Pair is not a bad card. I just could not figure out what else you would like to drop instead. And yes cdkime Wirewood Symbiote has a lot of potential with Elvish Archdruid!

Welcome to Magic!

Consider Wirewood Symbiote. It's not an elf, but its synergy with elves is quite nifty. Combined with Elvish Archdruid and a low-costed elf, you can produce infinite mana or an infinitely large Elvish Vanguard.

If it is in your budget, Craterhoof Behemoth is a great way to top off your curve, as it gives your creatures trample and an incredible boost to power.

Yeah the cobbled wings are a sideboard card for sure, if that even. I have stuff in my cart on starcity, just waiting to get paid. thanks for the suggestions. def gonna put in Elvish Archdruid and add in some Elvish Promenade also still constructing the sideboard. I also would like to add in Coat of Arms but i really like the draw aspect of the Vanquisher's Banner.

I would recommend Elvish Archdruid and Dwynen's Elite, maybe cut out the equipment and add more promenade's and banner's, maybe cut Forced Adaptation because its slow and gets you two for one'd by removal. Just some suggestions to try to make it more elf themed.

Wirewood Symbiote is a must in an elf deck as it is suedo hexproof. Also Coat Of Arms I think works against you in this deck, sure it's good for you but it's also good for the enemy. If you are playing cEDH then that means there will be a Krenko deck and all your doing is helping them.

Cut Doubling Season & Mana Reflection, you don't need them honestly because with Elvish Archdruid, 3 other elves and Staff of Domination/Paradox Engine you have infinite mana. With 5 other elves you can draw out your deck, and have infinite life. As far as doubling season goes you don't need to make double tokens you are gonna put like 6 elves out give them Ezuri-run (Ezuri's Overrun) 3 times or so and win. Go wide doesn't often work in cEDH.

Elvish Guidance is basically another Archdruid, highly recommended.

Also lack of haste will be the death of you so I'd suggest Concordant Crossroads and only play it once you are ready to go in.

If you want to take a look at my cEDH Elf deck, Elven Fury, feel free too. There are a lot of cards in there you don't have and they do things that you might need your deck to do. +1

I only run Essence Warden, Priest of Titania, Immaculate Magistrate, Elvish Archdruid, Wellwisher and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury. You can make a ton of elves with discard. One well played Dark Deal can put 16 plus elves on the battlefield. You can use others you like, but in my experience, they just take useful space you could use to run more discard and hate cards.
