Elvish Spirit Guide Discussion

Thank you for the comment !! This deck was made from a Yarok landfall core list I had been working on recently so the landfall synergies were fresh in my mind. I do like the idea of just going a little more all in on the ETB goodstuff deck and I will be sure to check out your list for ideas!! Now as for the card choices you commented on:
Elvish Spirit Guide is indeed my accelerator of choice because I wanted to get out my 3 mana ramp effects like Cultivate or Dryad of the Ilysian Grove as soon as possible to keep up with the decks that do not have our restriction haha.
Seeds of Innocence was more of a meta call for my meta and I played a lot of cEDH so I just really liked how it performed in my cEDH decks that I decided to start running it in my regular decks as well!

I'm glad there's another person brewing this companion pairing. IMHO they are the best one so far. I do like your inclusion of Elvish Spirit Guide to act as a mana accelerator. Seeds of Innocence is also another card I need to look into. There's a lot of great ideas here. I went into more of an all-in ETB goodstuff build with less emphasis on landfall triggers. Feel free to check mine out!

Here are my thoughts on the deck. Your list seems to be a bit more grindy than most, which is fine for some decks, but as a Food Chain deck, we want to be as fast as possible. I'll list the changes I'd make while still keeping the list under $500.
Fierce Guardianship: I love this card in decks where you want your commander in play like Tasigur, the Golden Fang, but in this deck, our commander only serves as a Food Chain outlet. This card just isn't right for the deck. Replacement: Pact of Negation
Kenrith's Transformation: This card is better suited for grindy decks. Unlike Oko, Thief of Crowns, this card can only deal with creatures and can't take out problematic stax artifacts. I'd replace it with Narset, Parter of Veils because she hurts our opponents with her static ability while allowing us to dig at least 4 cards deep for a tutor, combo piece, or disruption.
2 Swamps out for Spell Pierce and Muddle the Mixture. The first card is underrated and can win counterspell wars. The second can be used to find Flash or Demonic Tutor to find a different combo piece like Food Chain.
Toxic Deluge is so bad for this deck due to the high density of mana dorks we run. Also, a board wipe shouldn't be necessary for this deck because we aim to win before a board wipe is necessary. I'd personally replace it with Perplex because I really like having tutors even if they're limited and 3 mana (but on a budget, you gotta do what you gotta do). However, I could also see the addition of Elvish Spirit Guide. This one's mainly a meta choice and it depends on how consistent you think the deck needs to be.
I'd also consider trying to mold the mana base to fit the restriction of Tainted Pact. I'll be trying to do that in my own $500 build of this deck and once I've built it, you'll be able to see it in the description of my primer: cEDH Whale Wolf Primer
I love the deck and I like the inclusion of the alternate Hulk line (I'm assuming it's due to the absence of Tainted Pact. I hope this helped you and please let me know if you need further help or clarification! Cheers!

lunde174 Force of Negation doesn't protect our extra turn spells, where other similarly cheap spells like Dispel and Spell Pierce both help to police opponents, while also offering protection for warps. This deck is primarily a proactive deck so disruption is secondary to the main gameplan.
I'll be testing Fierce Guardianship and I think it's going to make the cut.
Rocks (like Mox Amber and Lotus Petal) should be kept to a minimum since we run Null Rod and Collector Ouphe. Also, mana dorks are prioritized since they draw off Edric if needed. Elvish Spirit Guide is excluded for this reason (though, could make a good budget replacement for Mana Crypt or Mox Diamond)

The first two can be dropped on turn 1 and can repeatedly ramp your lands as opposed to the once-off effects of the other two. The Hyrax Tower Scout is a new addition from Theros: Beyond Death as another option to be fetched with Woodland Bellower. It also reduces the initial activation cost of the combo with Temur Sabertooth. Priest of Titania is the wrong CMC for this deck as a mana dork. It would be an awful feeling if you have to cast that on turn 2 instead of Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.
