Ezuri, Renegade Leader Discussion

Honestly, you can't go wrong with Green in EDH as a starting color. Yeva, Nature's Herald can be a lot of fun and fairly powerful (not to mention cheaply built if budget is a consideration). If you like elves, that will be a bit more pricey but with Ezuri, Renegade Leader at the helm, you'll have lots of options. If you like big splashy spells, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard can combo into lots of mana for eldrazi or other big things. If you want to give your lands some added value, Titania, Protector of Argoth is a good choice.

I suggest green simply because it is #1 in ramp, #2 in card draw, and #3, it has a decent number of effects that deal with artifacts and enchantments (two card types in EDH that can cause lots of shenanigans).

You will suffer in being able to wipe the board (or in having the board wiped) and potential vulnerability to flyers. The other downside is that it is an aggressive color, with the desire to turn its creatures sideways almost every turn. So if you want to play a less aggressively, I'd recommend pairing green with Blue or White.

As for elves, If you need extra help, Floodgate-type cards can be very helpful. Ghostly Prison slow them down a little and/or shrink their alpha strikes quite a bit. Worship is effective, however Shaman of the Pack and Throne of the God-Pharaoh will kill you. Ensnaring Bridge would be your best bet here, but you have to empty your hand quick. ( and they're 50$ :/ )

Otherwise, extra copies of Zealous Persecution or extra spot removal can work wonder here. I also like Runed Halo quite a bit in this match-up since it can fit two roles: protect from Shaman of the Pack, or punish him for playing multiple similar elves. Other than than you wanna run some sweepers like Wrath of God or Hour of Reckoning. Pithing Needle is also very good for jamming Ezuri, Renegade Leader and if you wanna go that route, Nevermore can prevent them from casting certain key card; namely Collected Company, Chord of Calling or Lead the Stampede.

you can move your enchantments and gaea's blessing to sideboard, as not all decks are going to put your library into your graveyard, or swarm a bunch of fliers. instead, running 4x Llanowar Elves may be better. If you cut freyalise as well, you'll have room for 4x Heritage Druid, which is really powerful for ramping. i'd suggest cutting some Lys alana huntmaster, so you have room for 2x Ezuri, Renegade Leader.

This list has the best reactive 3-drops you'll find (Reclamation Sage, Eternal Witness). If you're looking for something a little more proactive in that slot, maybe try Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (which ShaperSavant only recently took out), Elvish Archdruid/Ezuri, Renegade Leader (depending on how elf-heavy your deck is), or Fierce Empath (I'm always glad to have a Great Oak Guardian in my hand, you never know when you'll need one).

Fair enough especially on angel of jubilation. My point with cathar's crusade and collective blessing is just that you could run an Overrun-like effect that's cheaper and more immediate in their place. I also think that 9/10 you'll wamt more mana instead of life. I'd play Shamanic Revelation over Mouth and Slate of Ancestry.

Also Ezuri, Renegade Leader doesn't need full elfball to work. His regeneration ability works for your commander amd you have enough elves to seriously play Priest of Titania and Elvish Archdruid which is more than enough to make ezuri worth it. I'd slot it in where the champion of lambholt is.

It may be a little low in mana; I haven't quite found the sweet spot yet. The problem with 20 lands is that, with too many lands, the card draw fizzles a lot, since our main drawing comes from casting creatures with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and Lifecrafter's Bestiary out. If we draw into a couple lands in a row, that can sometimes end the streak. Personally, I don't seem to have an issue getting a land and 1 drop in my hand, but early removal definitely kills our mana :(

I almost always have Druid of the Anima or Elvish Harbinger on the field before I'm ready to cast Banefire, so I actually haven't run into the red issue either. However, adding some red/green dual-lands would be safer; I was just being cheap!

I really like the Chord of Calling suggestion! Elvish Harbinger also helps find Ezuri, Renegade Leader (and Elvish Archdruid, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, or Nullmage Shepherd), but the Chord of Calling is definitely faster and more reliable.
