I agreed with adding x4Manamorphose, I really really like them, In my opinion its kinda playing with 56 cards, would definetely run the full playset in "any" greend or red deck.

I might add some Essence Warden, or Wellwisher instead, I dont know.

And about the Fireball idea, I love the idea, might add a few in the side and/or main deck, to have an alternative win condition, since its not so expected.

I dint know about Echoing Decay so Ill definetely wont run four copies of any of the mana generator elves, besides Birchlore Rangers.

And about Elvish Visionary and Sylvan Ranger Ill really have to think about it, since I personally love to draw/make thinier the deck, but probably will cut at least one or two of both them.

Also, its Lys Alana Huntmaster worth adding? Its not bad at all, and can work greatly with Elvish Vanguard or Ivy Lane Denizen buts its too expensive in my opinion.

Sorry for the long wait. I really wanted to coment both of you sooner and definitely would appreaciate more tips coming from you. See you later.

popostar6745 on "So yeah. You lose." (Abzan Panharmonicon)

@Aragornbromsson - Thanks! Seems like a potentially good idea. I have Elvish Visionary for card draw (for the same reason as I would have something like Vessel of Nascency), and it even infinitely blinks with the combo to pull out my game winners. And you are right, it does all fit really well together (I would hope so, I spent a good 5-ish months designing and tuning the deck to what it is now). But in the games I've played, I haven't necessarily needed the combo to win. I've won games via beating my opponents down (an option which has been made viable by the fact that Siege Rhino and Thought-Knot Seer are such good attackers and Anafenza, the Foremost provides such amazing attack support). I am going to look into Vessel of Nascency, and if I don't use it here, it's good to know it exists for any possible brews in the future.

HadesGladiator on Dang that's a lot of mana! (First EDH deck, help!)

You can definitely use some more land ramp and draw power since with a 100 card decks in EDH, it's kind of needed. Are you trying to make this an elf deck or just ramp into big stuff?

Some card suggestions for now are: Lys Alana Huntmaster, Reclamation Sage, Elvish Visionary, Elvish Promenade, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

I can probably find more later.

looks good, some things to consider. run 3Elvish Mystic, 3Llanowar Elves and 2 Fyndhorn Elves this helps against Echoing Decay. also cut 1Sylvan Ranger and 1Elvish Visionary for 2Elvish Vanguard. the one island is not as much of a problem as you think the Birchlore Rangers rely help this.

Ah, I forgot about the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker interactions with Sakura-Tribe Elder. I agree that Rampant Growth may be the better card to cut with Kiki-Jiki in mind.

Yes, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre will shuffle the entire library back into the deck. And I use him for that same purpose too.
But the Loaming Shaman is a 3/2 that sticks on the battlefield after shuffling the graveyard back in. It also interacts well with Kiki-Jiki since it isn't legendary. But I do see why it may not fit into your playstyle or deck concepts.


Oh Deadeye Navigator.....
Ok, this is more of a metagame choice than a card choice. Since there are great articles on the issue, please look over:
http://www.starcitygames.com/article/31541_The-Most-Overused-Commander-Cards.html
http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/commander-edh/204075-scd-deadeye-navigator
and
http://magicgatheringstrat.com/2015/03/the-five-cards-that-should-be-banned-in-commander/
(Sorry, still have not gotten links to work for me in comments.)
So, short version. A lot of people are looking to get Deadeye Navigator on the banned list because he is TOO combo enabling and kinda broken in all of the wrong ways.
Once he hits the table, most groups are going to immediately assign you as the biggest threat at the table. It stops being fun when you keep getting knocked out of games because everyone works against you.So, if your play group is ok with using/abusing the Navigator, then feel free. He does combo well with a lot of the cards you have. Just keep in mind that the Navigator also ends up warping decks to maximize/abuse the ETB triggers he can spawn.
If you look at my Brago flicker deck Did you see that? you'll see that the Navigator is absent. That card would be great in that deck. But it would paint a bigger target on me than I want. So, as a metagame choice, I didn't use it.
I recommended Temur Sabertooth based on these ideas. Yes, you have to recast the bounced creature. But the Sabertooth doesn't paint a giant "kick me" sign on your back.
You still have the option of blocking then bouncing. The smaller creatures like Eternal Witness, Mystic Snake, and Wood Elves aren't that bad to recast. Also, the indestructible aspect lets you look at Blasphemous Act as a board wipe to replace the All Is Dust.

Glad that you like the Kumano, Master Yamabushi. I've had a few games where people have locked down the table with either Ensnaring Bridge or a Isochron Scepter with Fog. I've won games just on dumping as much mana as possible into his ability to ping players directly. And it is nice exiling pesky creatures.

So, I started looking back over your list. Here are some simple but effective ideas:
Elvish Visionary for the card draw. Also works with nicely with Kiki-Jiki.
Conquering Manticore as an additional flying 5/5 version of Zealous Conscripts. Having another flyer doesn't hurt.
Acidic Slime could give you an option to deal with things like an opposing Maze of Ith. I think this may be the better option.
Mulldrifter nets you two cards for 3 mana.

If you feel like it, take a look over some of my decks and let me know what you think.
