i came up with a soutilon to the land prroblem i took out one of the Joraga Warcaller and swaped it with Greenseeker so if if im haveing problems with land gain i can bring to my hand from deck this way and i can get Greenseeker with the Elvish Harbinger and Wirewood Herald test ou tthe deck and see what you think with these changes or should i revert it back

Elegant Edgecrafters might be all right. Highspire Artisan and Peema Outrider might be too weak for EDH. Still, warm bodies are sometimes all you need with elves.

Elvish Harbinger should definitely be in the Maybeboard. Fining Ezuri, Renegade Leader or Elvish Archdruid (or even Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen when life is low) is clutch.

Try throwing in some ramp spells IE: Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Kodama's Reach

Also something like Gilded Lotus or extra mana dorks Elvish Harbinger , Elvish Mystic or Rishkar, Peema Renegade might help ya with Omnath, Locus of Mana 's ability.

Just some ideas to Ponder on in the Thought Vessel !

But looks fun I've always loved ramp decks :)

I noticed that three of your cards show in more than one category so to save myself and anyone who considers building this deck some headache, here's a list of the all the dupes and what category they're in.

Broken Bond : Ramp and Interaction

Elvish Harbinger : Ramp and Search

Yavimaya Elder : Draw and Search

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.

TheLordStormCrow on Too Many Elves on the Shelf

If you want this to be competitive in modern, you have too many high cmc cards and cards that just don't do enough.

Cards like Elvish Harbinger , Elvish Visionary , Nettle Sentinel , Protean Hulk , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Maralen of the Mornsong , Castle Garenbrig , Summoner's Pact , Doubling Season , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, and Elvish Promenade are just not good enough for modern GB Elbe.

You also want to go up to 4 of Heritage Druid and Collected Company , as they're two of your best cards.

In general, the cards I named above just aren't fast/good enough for modern if you want to play competitively (but if you want me to explain why, feel free to ask and I'll give my reasons for that)

You'll probably want to run a set of Elves of Deep Shadow or Boreal Druid in addition to Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic s, whichever you prefer, to make your draws more consistent, I've been playing GB Elves competitively for almost a year now, and your draws with a mana dork on 1 are a LOT better than without.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader is one of the best payoffs you can play, because he's legendary, 2/3 is probably the right number, he's a payoff for your mana from Elvish Archdruid , and can regenerate your team to make combat very favourable/to (almost) blank a board wipe.

You might also want to try Once Upon a Time , it helps find land drops when you need them, allowing you to keep a low land count, and also finds payoffs pretty often when you need them.

Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow (Budget)

Andrew6Gardiner: I'm super happy you love the deck, dude! :)

Though, I'd like to discuss your meta a bit more, since Ulvenwald Tracker and Band Together fulfill the Stag's role.

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.
