Elvish Champion Discussion

bevanz on Mono Green stompy elves

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!

ModernStormPlayer996 on budget elves turn 4 win

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.

Budget-ish Modern Elves

Modern ModernStormPlayer996


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!

Looks solid, I know it's budget but things like Gilt-Leaf Palace and Cavern of Souls and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could be good. I run a 1x of Cavern and 3x Palace and 1x Nykthos in my build.

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.

Have you considered Hushwing Gryff or Auriok Champion? I like them too sometimes

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

1 Phyrexian Revoker vs 1 Stony Silence

1 Yixlid Jailer vs 1 Rest in Peace

2nd Reclamation Sage vs 1 Fracturing Gust

1 Kor Firewalker vs 1 Burrenton Forge-Tender

1 Melira, Sylvok Outcast and 1 Elvish Champion vs 2 Path to Exile

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).

Winmigapor on Elven Damage

Thanks for the feedback guys this is really helpful. I have seen that land Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx before and I really wanted to add it in so that just reassures me to do just that. If I clean it up a little and throw in the Elvish Champion and lets say I throw away my Nissa's Chosen for the Reclamation Sage what if my opponents don't use those often? It would just be a simple 2/1 where as the chosen is a 2/3, wouldn't the extra life make up for the lack of ability? I also wouldn't mind using the Heritage Druid combo but I have never done it before so not entirely sure how to go about using it properly.

Hi WiltLeafElves! I wanted to ask a few questions about your decks and see if you could give me some feedback on my elves deck, Cloudy with a Chance of Elfball.

So the questions.

  1. How do you like Primal Command? To me it's always seemed a bit slow for modern, even if you can ramp it out.
  2. What's your opinion on Essence Warden? I don't play it because it seems to usually feel like a bad draw. Against burn I've found that they just bolt it, and 1 mana gain 3 isn't great.
  3. This one's about Joraga Warcaller. It always seems to be the first thing cut for me, because there are just better versions of it in Elvish Archdruid and Elvish Champion. I know you can kick it more times, but it doesn't give evasion, so it feels like a worse Ezuri, Renegade Leader.

Do you disagree with any/all, and if so, what have I not thought of?
