Remand and pact are appropriate as fuel for ascendancy combo, but there aren't enough cantrips for that to be somewhat reliable- I'd consider cutting ascendancy entirely, and looking for some 'play an extra land' cards- Azusa, Lost but Seeking might break the bank, but Explore, Journey of Discovery, Rites of Flourishing, Wayward Swordtooth exist. Elvish Pioneer won't be great, but Sakura-Tribe Scout has made a strong showing in Primeval Titan decks, alongside Tolaria West. If you're ok with the cost, Tireless Tracker is the core 3 drop in most green lists right now for a reason. Vesuva is modern legal, if not played because of the lack of Cloudpost abuse.

Sideboard wise, Broken Bond looks nice for this deck in particular, then its the usual hate cards for your meta. If you're having trouble with a particular deck, look at their primer and see what cards they are trying to play around.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I think I'm going to go with Elvish Pioneer or Arbor Elf. Those two seem the safest best Search for Tomorrow.

Well Arbor Elf goes great with sprawl. There are also a ton of mana dorks, but one I find interesting if you are mono colored is Elvish Pioneer as it puts a land into play.

Oh, that is fine, if it your challenge to run every card that gives you more land drops <4 mana, even the bad one, you gotta runthe following though if that is your reasoning Walking Atlas, Broken Bond, Swell of Growth, Budoka Gardener, Elvish Pioneer, Krosan Wayfarer, Llanowar Scout, Loam Dweller, Manabond, Skyshroud Ranger, and Swell of Growth.

Nice deck. If you want to really ramp up mana fast you could consider some amazing cards: Skyshroud Ranger , Elvish Pioneer with those two you can synergise with Fertile Thicket , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach for straigt out mana generation with creatures you could add Song of Freyalise , Grow from the Ashes and definitely add Steel Leaf Champion he is just way to good to not have him in an elven deck.

Hope this helps!

Christopher I agree with you and I also do not know what cards to swap out. Maybe Song of Freyalise and instead of 2x Elvish Pioneer up to 3x Skyshroud Ranger so that would allow 4x Cultivate and 2x Rancor if I drop 1x Forest im back at 60 cards... Difficult decision

ellie-is nice Elves! I will swap them for the 4x Llanowar Elves so 2xElvish Pioneer and 2x Skyshroud Ranger.

I think Door of Destinies is a bit slow most of the time, but it seems to work on this deck! I'd definitely not run Coat of Arms, though. It's just way too good for your opponent most of the time.

One thing that might be nice, given how much the deck likes having forests in play, would be maybe switching out Llanowar Elves for something along the lines of Elvish Pioneer or Skyshroud Ranger? Though you'd probably need to run more lands to get the most out of them, since they're useless if you don't already have a land in hand. But they're nice in that you still have the extra mana even if they get removed, on top of helping out with Scute Mob and Beacon of Creation.
