I highly recommend swapping in Ezuri, Renegade Leader for your commander over Freyalise. His regenerate ability helps a ton against board wipes, and he is a "win the game now" button with the Overrun ability. If you make that swap, you'll have access to Overrun from the command zone, so you could cut the spells you have that do the same thing and make room for more elves.

If you do make the swap, and you like infinite combos, pick up an Umbral Mantle. Mantle + any elf that makes 4+ mana (usually Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, but also sometimes Marwyn or Viridian Joiner) = infinite green mana, which, with Ezuri, makes any creature a lethal trample attack. It's also cheap!

A couple other cheap Elf synergies:
Quirion Ranger - it's in legacy elves for a reason!
Bloodline Shaman - to find you more elves
Dwynen's Elite - 2 elves for one!
Elvish Guidance - turns your land into a Priest of Titania
Primal Command - deals with pesky noncreatures and is a tutor

Hey. Cool deck. While I'm not used to seeing this version of Rhys be used as a commander, I'm glad I took a look.

A couple elves I would recommend for this deck are Copperhorn Scout and Joraga Warcaller. The warcaller works well with your strategy & will make your elves less susceptible to dying to combat damage. The mana elves you run can make his multikicker get pretty high. The Copperhorn Scout can give you more mana to use on your second main phase or give you double the life from Wellwisher each turn.

A non-elf I would recommend for this deck would be Elvish Guidance. Essentially makes the land a Gaea's Cradle for your deck without the price tag. Speaking of which, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip as well as Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go a long way to helping those X-spells in your deck.

Not sure what I would recommend to cut to make room for all of these, but I will say I'm not sure how effective your discard strategy is. I get denying cards can be powerful, but I feel it splits focus from the deck. So I would recommend cutting Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Mind Slash.

Oh! Just thought of a couple more elves. Elvish Visionary (draw 1) and Generous Patron (draw 2 when you resolve its support on opponents' creatures) can give you some added draw for your deck while also giving you an elf in play to add to your elf count.

All right. I think that's all I have right now. Again, love the deck list and apologies for not offering more options to cut. Anyway, +1 from me for sure.

Suozi: since the deck relies on drawing into pieces/answers it might not be AS efficient everytime, however Yisan's easy to telegraph and it doesn't operate within windows of instant speed. If he's the dominate one in your meta you'll do pretty well most of the time, since you break parity with the majority of his stax package and feed into your Elvish Guidance/Priest of Titania lines. It also helps that he's throttled by a budget.

GrizzlyAtom: Just wanted to say that I absolutely loved the list! Safe to say you hit the nail on the head on almost all of your choices. However, I do highly recommend you make a couple of changes for the general consistency of the deck.

These won't be direct swaps to the cuts and more of a series of cards that you should highly consider as I don't want to cramp your style.

I hope this helps, I love the deck, will be keeping up with it. Final recommendation would be to use a similar categorization that I used in Yeva for your list as it helps you visualize your deck based off function and see where it is lacking.

Hi Psicraft

Thanks for the suggestions! I forgot to mention that I'm trying to keep this budget so I wont add singles above $25, meaning Staff of Domination , Survival of the Fittest , Gaea's Cradle , even Craterhoof Behemoth are out of budget (nor can I find them easily in my locale).

I did try Elvish Guidance in an earlier build but again, once a wipe hits, its no use. Might try it again. I suppose Crop Rotation is only for Cradle and Nykthos? If I dont run both these lands/ only Nykthos, is it still worth it? For now, I'm unable to find a Natural Order locally, but Eldritch Evolution seems to be doing the job, and also cheaper (real money wise).

Grothama, All-Devouring can act as a substitute Ghalta, Primal Hunger for the sake of Life's Legacy effects. I feel I have issues with early filtering. Would cards like Generous Patron , Oath of Nissa work?

Hey lonesentinel, You have put together a very nice deck. I would have some recommendations that you might like.

Asceticism is a realy good protection and works very well.

Staff of Domination a another combo-piece, for Prist of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, Marwyn… as infinitely mana, or/and infinitely darw to Psychosis Crawler

Argothian Elder , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Elvish Guidance , Gaea's Cradle for a heavy mana

Natural Order , Chord of Calling , Summoner's Pact , Crop Rotation , Survival of the Fittest as tutor for combo creatures or lands

If your goal is to collect different combo pieces to reach your line, I would cut Great Oak Guardian and Grothama, All-Devouring out, because they do less for the goal or only once on ETB.

I am available for any questions,

best regards

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Great to see that you added Fauna Shaman as an upgrade :)

$1-$3 card upgrades to consider:

Consider replacing some lands and mana rocks with more one drop mana Elves? Harbinger and Summons are creature tutors. Symbiote and Paruns are ways to untap the Elves who can make a lot of green mana (Priest, Archdruid, Marwyn). Paruns can be infinite green mana with one of these Elves. Timberwatch, Voice, Regal are creatures that benefit from having lot of other creatures in your control which is good with tokens. I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.
