Ezuri, Renegade Leader Discussion
2 days ago
Nice little elf deck. I should point out that Eladamri, Lord of Leaves makes Ezuri, Renegade Leader unable to regenerate your elves though. If you need somebody to replace him with maybe Elvish Eulogist could help as it's a lovely sentiment to remember the fallen elves throughout the game.

Hello and welcome! First thing, mind your budget: Affinity is relatively cheap compared to other Tier 1 deck, but you have to be prepared to spend a lot of money for playsets of its best cards like Mox Opal and Arcbound Ravager if you want to upgrade your budget list. Btw, if you are interested Magic Aids published a good Tempered Steel build, slightly different from the usual because it is mono-white and uses cards from Kaladesh and Aether Revolt which are easy to find in any LGS.
I would also suggest you to take a look at some alternatives i personally prefer to those you proposed and are competitive for their price:
-Mono-G Elves; upgradable in Elves combo, Gb Elves or Gw Elves. You won't snowball as fast without Collected Company, but the budget alternatives make you sufficently fast the majority of time. Only problem i had with it is i couldn't find Elvish Archdruid, Joraga Warcaller or Ezuri, Renegade Leader at my LGS because Elves are quite popular as a tribe and you too could have problem in that sense.
-Mono-Black Control; upgradable to Mono-B devotion, BG Rock, BR control, Jund and Abzan. A personal favourite, black already has removals, hand disruption, board wipes, card advantage and win conditions on its own. It can be built in a lot of ways from classic devotion (Budget Mono-Black Devotion) to Black Panharmonicon (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-83-40-tix-modern-mono-black-panharmonicon), through midrange Competitive Mono Black Midrange on a Budget or my little project Midrange? No, midnight.).
-BW Tokens or BW Aristocrats. These are both decks with a fairly cheap core and a solid upgrade path for the rest of the deck. Their competitive advantage in the current metagame is that they are resilient to removal and aggro strategies. Neither is a T1 deck, but sometimes someone takes down a tournament with them and they are fun.
-Mono-B vehicles; a sweet list proposed few months ago by SaffronOlive. Here is the article with the matches he played: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-84-50-tix-mono-black-vehicles-modern.
-Mono-U Hatebirds; another recent, juicy build by SaffronOlive. Article with matches is here: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-81-24-tix-favorable-winds-modern. Both lists revolve around one of modern strongest but less played card, Smuggler's Copter, to support an aggressive plan, able to race even with format's top tier. A problem you can have assembling this list in particular is that, after the article was published, Psionic Blast's price spiked. It happens every time Seth builds a succesful list and it is already going back, but you can still have some problem finding and buying copies, so i had to tell you.

You can check out my elf deck for ideas, it's less budget (I call it budget-ish) than yours and thus much more powerful. You can check out my elf deck for ideas if you want and you can always leave suggestions on mine and remember to +1 Upvote if you like it.

Anyway, suggestions for your deck, Ezuri, Renegade Leader and even Joraga Warcaller (It's, even more budget) as better win conditions on turn 4 or 5 than Craterhoof Behemoth also you don't really need Nissa Revane for lifegain, if you are able to gain a significant amount of life then you are just better off having a win condition instead and just winning. One Westvale Abbey Flip for like $3 can get you out of some tight scenarios and act as a win condition. Also Elvish Champion is more of a sideboard card.
Hope the advice helps and make sure to check out my deck too!

I like the idea. I myself would like to play merfolk in standard but the problem I keep running into is being able to close out games. Deeproot can win the game in theory but it doesn't have evasion or trample to punch through. Nissa can also punch through in the air. Both of these things are not reliable win cons however. You can bounce, counter and disrupt all you want but if you're only swinging back on average for 3-4 damage, there's a problem somewhere.
Merfolk need a lord effect or have an alternate win con. I really hope we get a lord of some kind which makes decks like this a real thing.
Some other notes, Growing Rites of Itlimoc seems out of place. You get kind of an oath of nissa and then gaea's cradle. Great but for what? Nissa? That doesn't really seem worth it. You're not ramping into anything crazy or have overrun effect like on Ezuri, Renegade Leader. I would also kill the aether hubs for basics. They're not needed and you have zero energy production. Plus having more islands helps your 1 drop.
Of course, you'll need to play with the numbers on all the cards but I also think Metallic Mimic needs to be in there. Hopefully we get that lord or something good for merfolk because right now it only seems "okay" at best.

Ok smiffdemon, you sold me on the Fist of Suns. Though just fyi, if i am casting him from the command zone for the second time or more, i'll still have to pay the Commander tax, though it'll take three casts to exceed his original cost, so that ain't bad either. I know about the tax because i play an Ezuri, Renegade Leader EDH deck, and Aluren is one of my favorite cards in it. :) I gotta pick up a Dragon Arch, it just oozes flavor and function.
THanks again so much. This website and people like you have helped me grow so much as a magic player, especially in such a card rich format like EDH.

Post your list, format, which game it is, what deck your opponent is on (if you know), whether you're on the play or draw, and your hand. Then answer the person above you.
I'll go first: Cloudy with a Chance of Elfball (865 ON T4!!!), modern, game one on the draw against unknown opponent.

filthyc4sual, thank you for the suggestions!
I swapped out the Champion of Lambholt for Ezuri, Renegade Leader and added more consistency with Collected Company and Summoner's Pact. So far I prefer Bramblewood Paragon mostly because of the Elf synergy, since he gets +1/+1's from Ezuri and other elves, but I'll try working in Joraga Warcaller.
I haven't gotten a change to play it against other decks yet, but in playtests it's been doing about 40 damage by turn 6, Ezuri was definitely a big improvement!
