other cards you can consider are Elvish Promenade, Asceticism, Heroic Intervention, Elvish Champion, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Heritage Druid, Elvish Harbinger, Immaculate Magistrate and somthing to destroy artifacts/enchants for the sideboard. Also I would drop Coat of Arms for 2 more lands. Coat is a good card but you have enough buffs as it is and you dont want to give advantages to your enemy as he can be playing a tribal deck too. Dont forget to use 4 Rootbound Crag if you can to maximize the chances of you using Banefire. The deck seems pretty solid to me with those cards but the extra 2 lands would help a lot.

I agree with /u/Scion_of_Darkness, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid as a 2x of would be pretty great.

I don't think that your Silhana Ledgewalker+Stoneforge Masterwork combo is doing a whole lot, it doesn't synergize with the deck very well. I'd consider dropping both and making some of these changes.

2x Gilt-Leaf Archdruid + 1 more Heritage Druid + 1 more Throne of the God-Pharaoh. The Archdruid is fetchable by Elvish Harbinger, making him much easier to get out consistently. Once he's out, every single one of your creatures causes you to draw a card. The Heritage Druid + Throne of the God-Pharaoh combo is actually really good here. The ability stacks and you can tap out creatures you know you won't be blocking with for mana. Beast Whisperer is a pretty suitable substitute for Gilt-Leaf Archdruid. Basically the same first ability, but you lose the ability to grab your opponents lands in the mid game. I'd maybe even consider running 2x of each, and dropping Rhonas's Monument. The more abilities that you can have on your elves, rather than artifacts or enchantments, the better all your elves will perform. Especially if you run 4x Elvish Harbinger. Lets you consistently grab drawing combo pieces or win-cons like Ezuri.

Elvish Clancaller would be a great replacement for Stoneforge Masterwork. It effects all your creatures and you can pump extra mana into grabbing more of them. Gives you more creatures to tap as well for the Throne.

If you can get ahold of a few double lands, then you'd be in better shape. Even 4x Guildgates would be better than just a single Mountain. It would let you drop Chromatic Lantern as well. Ideally you'd get some Stomping grounds and Wooded Foothills so nothing comes in tapped and you can reliably get your splash color.

I honestly don't have a good answer. The deck has run smoothly without it, so I've never thought about grabbing one. I'm also not a huge fan of tutors that put the card on top of the library, as it can be a target for getting milled. I know I run Elvish Harbinger which does exactly that, but I get a mana dork so it still has a spot.

Minnakht yeah he’s pretty good. He’s almost always the card I tutor with Elvish Harbinger :)

+1 Love the list, sorry I didn't see your comment on my user page!

Arbor Elf and Fyndhorn Elves could be additional mana dorks, but since you wanted to fit in an Elvish Harbinger, dropping a Hurricane for it could work, if you are still worried about fliers Tower Defense is a card I would suggest, it also is useful against red board wipe like Anger of the Gods.

Elvish Harbinger is used as a tutor to get more Arbor Elf's. Also it allows me to diversify my mana sources. I play Elvish Harbinger, Karametra's Acolyte, and Chromatic Lantern so that my opponents cant just destroy my land/enchants and completely screw me over. I also like to have Kodama's Reach as a way of cycling more of the lands out of the deck, so you are more likely to draw something useful. Voyaging Satyr is a good card, but I don't use it because I would have to swap out something else or go above 60 cards. Same goes for Fertile Ground. Thanks for the feed back.

Voyaging Satyr is another untap land ramp creature that you could play, it would speed up your deck a lot if you added some more enchant land ramp like Fertile Ground too. They're cheaper and probably better (in terms of speed) than Elvish Harbinger and Kodama's Reach.

@ akselodd

Thanks for the suggestions! I agree this deck has been running a bit slow, and I'd definitely like to speed things up. I came into building this with the impression that "Well it's okay that it's a little slow, their hands are gonna be pretty much gone" which is not completely right.

I've taken in most of these suggestions to help them, the only differences being instead of putting in Herald of Anguish I'm going to keep Rhys the Exiled for his life gain (And only 1 Black Mana to keep him from dying should he be blocked), which after a Memory Jar combo you mentioned, would be at least 23 life. I'll take it.

Also, I'ma keep Gnarlroot Trapper in instead of the Elves of Deep Shadow simply because Trapper can give an Elf Deathtouch, which limits your opponent on what to block with, out of a desire to keep certain creatures alive. I agree the Mana ability is nowhere near Deep Shadow's ramp, but to me that Deathtouch is worth it in threat.

Finally, I actually used to have Elvish Harbinger in this deck alongside Quirion Elves, but I switched out Ms. Elf Tutor for Diabolic Tutor (I think we can agree would be the more useful tutor in this deck). I would NOT mind putting her back in to tutor for something like i dunno, Rhys the Exiled, however I don't wish to replace Quirion Elves specifically with her.

EDIT: I've decided to replace Memory Jar with her and stick it into the Maybeboard. It's a VERY useful card but it's pretty damn pricey, so it'll sit there to be bought at a point after I've bought this deck in full. In the meantime, I've filled that slot with Elvish Harbinger, and am still looking to more suggestions from the TappedOut community.
