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.

Hey, nice start. Unfortunately you can't play Rhys the Redeemed with Marwyn as General because Rhys has white in it's color identity and Marwyn is only mono green. With Elves the more one drops you can add the better especially if they can make mana.

Elves have a real problem without a lot draw because you can run out of steam and when that happens having a lot of mana isn't doing much. Repeatable sources of draw that care about creatures are great with Elves. Draw that's not repeatable is fine too.

Temur Sabertooth is an excellent support creature with Elves as a mana sink. This guy makes creatures who have an ETB ability extra good.

Most tutors in green are expensive price, but there's a few that aren't.

Try to replace land ramp sorceries with Elves who land ramp.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rhys the Redeemed
  • Oath of Nissa
  • Mantle of Webs
  • Savage Silhouette
  • Tanglesap
  • Nissa, Worldwaker
  • Wild Instincts
  • Rampant Growth
  • Nissa's Pilgrimage
  • Panharmonicon
  • Kaysa
  • Turntimber Ranger
  • Joraga Bard
  • Vastwood Animist
  • Tajuru Archer
  • Ooze Garden
  • Lifespring Druid
  • Door of Destinies

Consider cutting the Ally theme? This theme is not needed with Elves and there's not enough Allies here to support it. Good luck with your deck.

1) It is always difficult to make this decision. I would say if you are happy with your deck compared to your playgroup there is no need to just chuck more money at it.

2) Artifact removal in green should not be a worry there are plenty cards to do so i would be more worried about creature removal, Song of the Dryads Acidic Slime & Beast Within are great removal versatile removal for mono green

3) Fyndhorn Elves Boreal Druid Beast Whisperer are solid druids and the first two help with ramp (5)

4) Elvish Harbinger Joraga Treespeaker Mul Daya Channelers Wirewood Channeler

6) Sword of the Paruns Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination any of these combined with your commander when she as a few counters on her makes unlimited mana! (also will work with Wirewood Channeler , Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania )

Deruvid I’m hesitant to cut out all the her Elvish Harbinger or all of the Summoner's Pact . Mostly because I’m a situation when I have trouble getting the right card draw, Summoner's Pact allows me to tutor for Elvish Harbinger . After getting her I can search for Elvish Promenade or I move to pull out Maralen of the Mornsong which then leads to me tutor for Doubling Season .

Couple suggestions.

  1. You're already at 4 Lead the Stampede , plus a Harmonize and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for card draw and selection. I'd either cut all 4 Summoner's Pact or all 4 Elvish Harbinger to lower your deck size back towards 60.

  2. Your land count is a tad low, imo, especially because you're only running 8 1-drop accelerators. I recommend swapping out Lead the Stampede for either Winding Way or Oath of Nissa to help smooth land draws.

Elvish Archdruid and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as the last 2 infinite mana dorks in the deck. Elvish Harbinger as it counts as an elf, and tutors for your elves Ezuri, Renegade Leader to regenerate your elves Savage Summoning + Walking Ballista is an uncounterable win-con Mirror Entity + Wirewood Symbiote is amazing synergy add Wood Elves to that, and get all your forests Veil of Summer is really good. So is Mandate of Peace .

I also play selvala EVERYBODY PARL(T)AY [Combo][Primer]

Hey, nice version of Freyalise.

I would stay away from artifact ramp that doesn't make green mana. It's just not needed, green mana is too important and Elves calling card is making mana so you shouldn't have any trouble doing that. Joraga Treespeaker can be pretty powerful ramp one drop Elf. Arbor Elf is another one drop mana Elf. Land ramp spells are the same, while they can get you a Forest then aren't Elves. Instead play Elves who can land ramp or get you a Forest: Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , Sylvan Ranger . Any time you can get an effect from a spell with an Elf then play the Elf instead.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Enter the Unknown
  • Rampant Growth
  • Kodama's Reach
  • Thran Dynamo
  • Lotus Bloom

Quirion Ranger , Wirewood Symbiote and Wirewood Lodge can be busted with Archdruid and Priest to make a lot of green mana even infinite mana with Umbral Mantle or budget Sword of the Paruns . Ranger and Symbiote together combo which can be good with an Elf who has an ETB (enter the battlefield) ability such as Visionary or Reclamation Sage .

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Hunting Triad
  • Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar

Fauna Shaman , Elvish Harbinger , Wirewood Herald and Fierce Empath are Elf creature tutors to tutor for an Elf or a finisher creature. Fauna can be repeatable creature tutor getting into your hand the Elves you want. I like Genesis with Fauna because Fauna can put it into your graveyard which then becomes a repeatable way to recur Elves from your graveyard, board wipe insurance.

Herald can be some more board wipe insurance because when it dies you get to tutor for an Elf. Empath can tutor for Regal Force who's good mass draw card with Elves or Ibex or Vorinclex. Yes, Freyalise's -6 is a mass draw effect, but this effect is a worth having some redundancy since since it's so good with Elves.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Kalonian Twingrove
  • Kaysa
  • Elvish Piper
  • Drove of Elves
  • Mul Daya Channelers
  • Ambush Commander

Elves have a tendency to run out of steam if you don't have a repeatable draw engine. Consider Beast Whisperer , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Skullclamp ? Skullcamp is busted draw with Freyalise's ability to make 1/1 Elf tokens. It and Bestiary are artifacts within the budget here that are worth playing.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Primeval Bounty
  • Vivien of the Arkbow
  • Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

I offer more advice if you would like it. Good luck with your deck.
