Elvish Champion Discussion
4 weeks ago
I would change the format to modern as this isnt standard. Secondly, go all in on elves. Elvish Champion Imperious Perfect Masked Admirers Sylvan Messenger Lys Alana Huntmaster Reclamation Sage Gilt-Leaf Ambush. If you can afford to get good green/black lands you can open up a world of good carda like Thornbow Archer Shaman of the Pack Prowess of the Fair Elves of Deep Shadow Eyeblight's Ending Nameless Inversion

a deck that used all the lords would be pointless because their effects would rarely matter, if at all. for example, if you have an Elvish Champion and a Goblin Chieftain on the field, they're basically just 2/2's that aren't doing anything.

So there are a couple things to keep in mind for Umbral Mantle:
- Equipment: Equipments can only be equipped/re-equipped to creatures you control at sorcery speed (outside of Leonin Shikari). This means you are constrained to only be able to move the Umbral Mantle around during your main phases. Once you have moved into combat, you cannot re-equip the Umbral Mantle to a new creature.
- : This symbol means that "untapping" the creature is part of paying the COST for the ability of +2/+2. If the creature is tapped (due to being declared as attacking or if the creature has a ability like Elvish Archdruid), then if you can pay the , you can "untap" the creature and give it +2/+2. But then the creature needs to have some way of becoming "tapped" again! If it was Llanowar Elves, then np! But if it's Elvish Champion, then you are more restricted on how to get this creature "tapped" first.

I ran this today at a PPTQ, only real difference I kept 2 Heroic Intervention main board. ( A lot of U/W control at my location ) And I did not run any Jorgas, not a great hit on Co Co for me. I think Elvish Champion is what I ran.
I played against and beat both G/W and G/B elves. By far the mono green is the most powerful in my experience.
Its a fun deck, enjoy!

You can check out my elf deck for ideas, it's less budget (I call it budget-ish) than yours and thus much more powerful. You can check out my elf deck for ideas if you want and you can always leave suggestions on mine and remember to +1 Upvote if you like it.

Anyway, suggestions for your deck, Ezuri, Renegade Leader and even Joraga Warcaller (It's, even more budget) as better win conditions on turn 4 or 5 than Craterhoof Behemoth also you don't really need Nissa Revane for lifegain, if you are able to gain a significant amount of life then you are just better off having a win condition instead and just winning. One Westvale Abbey Flip for like $3 can get you out of some tight scenarios and act as a win condition. Also Elvish Champion is more of a sideboard card.
Hope the advice helps and make sure to check out my deck too!

Sounds odd but I also put 2 Chords in the side and run 2 Lead the Stampede main as game 1 I'm trying to power out elves to race and so have less need to find specific elves, and game 2 flip in the Chords along with whatever toolbox creatures suited to the opponent.
I'm not super crazy about Path, I feel like it's a dead card a lot of the time as many non-aggro creature decks need a lot more removal to play defense against and so the goal should be racing to hit the Shamans and not even worrying about combat. And against smaller creature decks you've already got Ezuri to get over them. But I could be wrong, I've never really tried non-creature removal spells in Elves.
Really nice, +1

N4kk1 Thanks for linking the deck, the differences in the sideboards from me and that deck (and the big debates I keep having with myself about my sideboard) are

Nykthos can just be more Temple Gardens. You could maybe have a 1-of Westvale Abbey Flip, though that didn't test all that well for me either. In general, most Elf decks rely on Ezuri or Lord buffs to get through - a 1-of Elvish Champion is popular in some sideboards, and I've seen some versions opt for Joraga Warcaller in a bid to make their Elves massive (though I don't recommend that now that Fatal Push is the removal spell du jour).
