@Atroxreaper. Your deck will be ignored because, well, you're selfish


Hope that helps for starters! :)

My deck: EDH Aggro Cats (Focused on his Eminence ability of +3/+3). Still looking for unique card interactions worth adding. Consistency is my priority in the deck.

I mean it has synergy with Dwynen's Elite, Elvish Visionary, and Shaman of the Pack outside of the combo.

Have Cloudstone Curio, Heritage Druid, Nettle Sentinel, and any 1 drop elf, all on the field.

Tap all three for 3 mana via Heritage Druid. Play any 1 drop elf (2 mana left). Doing so will trigger Cloudstone Curio and Nettle Sentinel will untap. Return Heritage Druid to your hand via cloudstone trigger.

Play Heritage Druid (1 mana left) and return the 1 drop elf you played to your hand.

Now you are back where you started except you have 1 extra mana. Repeat for infinite mana. Add Elvish Visionary and draw your deck.

If you go through the linked article he explains a lot of the wheres and whys, first develops it into elf deck, then a better deck with more money, then finally "take out the worst 15 elves and put these in" which is the land stuff.

Elves kept: Caller of the Claw; Elvish Archdruid; Elvish Harbinger; Essence Warden; Fierce Empath; Immaculate Magistrate; Imperious Perfect; Joraga Warcaller; Lys Alana Huntmaster; Oracle of Mul Daya; Wellwisher; Wren's Run Packmaster; Yeva, Nature's Herald.

Elves lost: Arbor Elf; Birchlore Rangers; Elvish Mystic; Elvish Visionary; Ezuri, Renegade Leader; Farhaven Elf; Heritage Druid; Joraga Treespeaker; Llanowar Elves; Priest of Titania; Reclamation Sage; Timberwatch Elf; Titania's Chosen; Wirewood Channeler; Wood Elves.

Collective Unconscious got kicked for Shamanic Revelation, and Swiftfoot Boots for Lightning Greaves, just personal preference. The fella was cost conscious so I added to the manabase (Gaea's Cradle, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs and Misty Rainforest (basically the Forest Fetchlands and Cradle).

I also kept the elvish commander Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury which I'm presuming I was suppose to cut, I just dropped the Forest that was recommended.

I agree with snotice on everything. In fact I would have mentioned taking Frontier Bivouac out but that one slipped me. It is late here. lol

Elvish Visionary has always been a great draw outlet for a common. I add it to any elf deck.

A replacement for Fanatic of Mogis could be the Xenagos I mentioned or I find Duskwatch Recruiter to be a solid card.

I can't think of a good replacement for Hammer of Purphoros. Fervor and Fires of Yavimaya are the same CMC.

Nylea171: as a casual deck, your on the right track. You just want to work on ensuring that your deck is consistently curving out creatures. I would suggest removing Frontier Bivouac with no blue sources being in the deck. Some other changes I would suggest are:

+2: Elvish Visionary: draw is king in magic.

+1: Champion of Lambholt: having unblockable creatures is always a plus.

Thanks for commenting.

Well, yes, I do know some things about elves. I believe the strongest modern elf combo with these days is using for copies of Shaman of the Pack, Dwynen's Elite and Collected Company. I believe the only expensive card of these is Company.

It lets you do an absurd amount of damage straight to the face of your opponents. And since Shaman of the Pack's effect is a ETB trigger, removal spells won't cause you so much trouble.

Other possible cards who would make this strategy consistent are Elvish Mystic for early mana, Elvish Visionary for card advantage, and if you want some tutors Chord of Calling is probably the best one.

If you want some more in spot technical info, ask me and I get into detail.

See ya!

Just to explain what you brought up in the description

Yisan is a broken commander because he gets-Wirewood Symbiote-Elvish Visionary-Elvish Archdruid-Temur Sabertooth

Which, along with 3 other elves (not too hard to get) is infinite draw, then infinite mana, than ping everyone to death with a 1,000,000/1,000,000 Walking Ballista. (Tap Archdruid for 5, Symbiote back a Visionary to untap, Sabertooth your Symbiote, recast both. drawn one card.)

And elfball gives you the backup plan of, you know, Craterhoof Behemoth.

He can play stax cards because his mana dorks allow him more mana through Winter Orb.

And his tutoring lets him play more silver bullets than normal.
