Farhaven Elf Discussion

pyromaniac53 on Who is the mythical, rhino soldier, time traveler?

I would suggest Solemn Simulacrum, it's good in pretty much any deck, and Roon can blink it for more lands if necessary. As for creature versions of your spells, Farhaven Elf is Rampant growth for 1 more mana, but on a 1/1.

multimedia on Elven Fury

Hey, to a fellow Commander Elf player. Lots of interesting card choices here. I think you can decrease the avg. CMC by quite a bit making the deck faster. With green you can take advantage of a lot of low CMC creature tutors. More cheap ways to tutor for Priest or Archdruid is excellent for the game plan...

There's many cards here including Elves that are fine, but their slow and in my opinion are not needed.

  • Norwood Priestess
  • Immaculate Magistrate
  • Argothian Elder
  • Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen
  • Elvish Vanguard

  • Asceticism
  • Nissa Revane
  • Praetor's Counsel
  • Akroma's Memorial
  • Caged Sun
  • Paradox Engine
  • Vanquisher's Banner
  • Vedalken Orrery

All these cards except for Vanguard are 4 CMC or higher. Consider cutting most of them for lower CMC cards, one and two drops? Ezuri is the best mana sink and Craterhoof is your best secondary win condition with Elves. All the mana your using on these other cards can simply go to Ezuri's overrun or ways to get Craterhoof. This advances your gameplan of winning with Elves much more than playing many of these cards.

With Ezuri you want an established battlefield of Elves before you play him, Craterhoof also wants this. If your hand is clogged with a lot the above cards then this is going to be hard to do. These cards are not helping to advance your game plan with Ezuri they're in fact slowing it down quite a bit. Just about all these cards require other cards to make them good and when you're playing four, five, six plus drops then these cards need to function by themselves and give you value when you play them.

Lower CMC cards are different. If they give you value when you play them that's great. Their true value however is being one, two or three drops Elves or cards that can help you tutor for or draw Elves:

Many of these cards I consider green staples for nonbudget Commander: Arbor, Pact, Chord, Worldly, Rotation, Library, Regrowth and Clamp. Your playing Elvish Guidance it has great interaction with Arbor. Nettle can be played for it's interaction with Heritage Druid and simply being anther one drop Elf. Elite is a lot of Elf value for two mana and it's also great with Heritage. Empath can tutor for Craterhoof, Thunderfoot or Regal Force. When playing Nykthos or Cradle both Rotation and Scrying are very beneficial to tutor for one of these lands.

Force, it's very good draw with Elves because you can creature tutor for it or get it with Fauna Shaman. It's much better than Shamanic Revelation because can't tutor for Revelation. It's a higher CMC, but it's worth it because it's a creature who gives you draw value when you play it. Force counts itself when it ETB, getting one draw no matter what.

Elves can make a lot of mana, but sometimes in games you can actually get land screwed not drawing more than one Forest. Having a few Elves who can get you a Forest is very helpful when these situations come up. Wood and Farhaven are fine turn two plays with help from a turn one mana Elf. Getting another Elf on the battlefield and land ramping at the same time. 31 total lands is low even for Elves; these Elves can help to get lands.

Good luck with your deck.


maxon on Jodah, The Walker that Never Was Returning Alive

OK, so looking at your deck list it's apparent you're going full on 'walker style. I think if you're going to keep it this way, you should think about including more creature wrath. Damnation, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, and In Garruk's Wake come to mind. This way people can't just swing at you unimpeded.

I also have a Jodah deck (Monsters, Friends, and the Right to Replicate), and I packed that sucker full of the kind of ramp where you pull land out of your library and put it into play.

Those spells include: Collective Voyage, Farseek, Urban Evolution, Explosive Vegetation, Ranger's Path, and Tempt with Discovery. I also have some creatures that grab land. Those are Farhaven Elf, Ulvenwald Hydra, and Yavimaya Dryad. Llanowar Scout fills a similar role. (I'm still tweaking this deck, but right now I'm happy with the ramp package. I did however have to up the number of basic lands to really benefit from the spells I selected.)

For extra benefit from all the land entering, I added Tatyova, Benthic Druid and Emeria Shepherd.

I think it's important to grab lots of land because you want to be able to use Jodah's ability as much as possible so you need all your colors.

Now that you have tons of land at your disposal, you have room for a secret weapon. A personal favorite of mine, Biovisionary and Rite of Replication. I include a Silence to ensure no one effs with the win. Worst case, you draw a counterspell with Silence. Cool thing with Biovisionary is, unlike most triggered instant-wins (like Mortal Combat), is this triggers at your endstep so you just do the thing, end your turn and win.

I also recommend trying Muldrotha, the Gravetide. It will let you cast 'walkers from the grave. It's stupid good.

For now, that's all I have. Gotta go back to work. Let me know what you think.

golgarigirl on Meren Madness

4 weeks ago

Black/Green (as you can guess from the username) is kinda my jam, and reanimator is one of the things it does best. Your Meren actually wants similar things to my Alesha deck...a creature has to die for it to come back and be reused, and creatures that have great effects that you can reuse are going to be the best.

Look for good Enter the Battlefield (ETB) and Leave the Battlefield (LTB) effects at a variety of mana costs to trigger Meren's experience tokens. Look for mana ramp creatures that put lands into play instead of tap for mana such as Sakura-Tribe Elder, Farhaven Elf, Yavimaya Elder, Civic Wayfinder. What you want to ramp into are all the fun different things you can do and then recur. Thragtusk, Woodland Bellower, Greenwarden of Murasa, Agent of Erebos, Priest of the Blood Rite, Ravenous Chupacabra, Fleshbag Marauder

Also look for fun creatures that care when other creatures you control die, since you want that to happen.

Most importantly, sacrifice outlets to a.) stop your creatures from being exiled b.) get that experience as fast as possible and c.) keep reusing those ETB/LTB abilities. Look for cards like Nantuko Husk, Disciple of Bolas, Blood Bairn, Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar

One more note... Elixir of Immortality is your friend. Many players know how dangerous a well-stocked graveyard is, and getting yours exiled can knock the wind from your sails. It's 100% better for it to get shuffled into your library that be gone for good!

rame124 on PROSSH FOOD CHAIN/ help wanted

1 month ago

Harvest Season, Abundance, Cryptolith Rite, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Descent of the Dragons <-- This one is more just for fun, Cabal Stronghold, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Paradox Engine,

I'm not really sure what I would pull out for any of these cards, I find that to be the hardest part about making changes, but just the top three would probably help accelerate it. I feel like the real question right now is, what kind of decks are your opponents typically playing? Are they control? Or are they infinite combo? Or creature smash? I would probably drop the Eternal Scourge, Farhaven Elf, and maybe Xenagos, God of Revels.

ThallionDarkshine on Turbo Land Beatdown

Currently you've got so many cards that I'm not sure what you want to be mainly focusing on, so I'll just talk about some cards that I feel are somewhat mediocre in this type of deck.

Icy Manipulator feels very low impact, and much more suited to a deck that can abuse artifacts in some way. I'm also not a huge fan of all the mass land destruction effects. You spend a lot of your time ramping, so I feel like they would probably set you back more than everyone else.

Next, some of the ramp options that I don't really like. Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves, while good cards, are usually just worse than 2-cmc ramp spells in this deck. You don't have a whole lot of payoff from having creatures, so some of the cheaper or higher impact ramp spells are usually just better. Elvish Pioneer feels fairly bad in here, while you can use it to ramp out Mina and Denn early, it comes at the cost of a land, which actually limits the effectiveness of your commander.

I think the main thing you need to focus on going forward is deciding what the main thing is that you are looking for in your threats. You've got a lot of options for curve toppers, and even with a ton of ramp there's a limit to how many 6+ drops you can run. Personally, I really like cards that have some utility besides simply being a beater, like Balefire Dragon (serves as removal), Dragon Mage (serves as draw), or Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar (can recur itself).

One thing I really like about this deck so far is the amount of low-cmc threats you've included. Things like Managorger Hydra, Scute Mob, or War Elemental all allow you to be very flexible, letting you squeeze them into a turn while ramping, or just developing them in the early game and letting them grow.

One powerful piece of draw I like in pretty much any green deck is Lifecrafter's Bestiary. It lets you filter your draws early on, and once you have tons of mana it becomes a powerful draw engine. In addition, you seem to have forgotten one of the most powerful landfall threats: Avenger of Zendikar. Not only does it create a ton of tokens, your commander's extra land drop lets you pump up the plants very quickly.

SecretEgret on (Owned) Ruric Thar Deck

1 month ago

Hard remove: Jaddi Offshoot, Abzan Beastmaster, Crown of Doom these cards seem extra weak either in this list in particular or overall

Jaddi? Not land focused

Beastmaster? Not fatty focused

Crown? Not wide enough

Soft remove: Nullstone Gargoyle, Dwarven Miner, Viashino Heretic

These cards are all slow, expensive, and make you a target. They are also redundant to Ruric Thar to some extent, which isn't bad, but it isn't copacetic to the plan.

Try: Ondu Giant, Borborygmos Enraged, Farhaven Elf, Viridian Emissary

What do these have in common? They're affordable, they're creatures and they ramp you to your fatties.

Then, to give your mooks some kick try cards like: Goblin Bushwhacker, Instigator Gang  Flip, Reckless Bushwhacker,
