Oh yes, I see this is a standard legal deck. My bad. Also Staff of the Wild Magus was kind of a stupid suggestion. Hornet Queen is an amazing standard legal card. I can't tell you how many games I have pulled it out on turn 4 or 5 with my Unexpected Results in my modern deck. More suggestions for you, Fog , Beast Within , Sylvan Primordial , Rust Scarab , Nessian Demolok , mostly because I feel you could maybe use some more enchantment and permanent removal and all of these cards can be fetched in your deck. Also consider Mortal's Resolve , I know it doesn't look like much, but I play a lot of green and its nice to waste someone else's creature removal.
If you want to try to swing more black you could throw in Tragic Slip for all around creature removal.. Also another great population spell is Druid's Deliverance it's pretty much Fog which I have love for plus for one mana double all your tokens making me have much turbo love for it xP
Fog would work better than Defend the Hearth . Your creatures cost way too much mana for Legacy. I suggest some mana ramp cards such as Wild Growth and Overgrowth Also need something that allow you to fetch for lands. Green has a ton of those I forget most of their names though.Your sideboard is too heavy focus on one thing which is obviously flying. Better add 4 graveyard hate cards just for dredge because there's always that one asshole who thinks that Dredge is a good idea. Why they do is beyond me.
To make things short, just netdeck a Legacy Elf deck.
Black & yellow, black & yellow, black & yellow?? LOLz.
And I have no idea what the references are to. Just putting in what I gathered from your description.
different play style would be take out your non-win con cards and add things like Angelsong , Angus Mackenzie , Batwing Brume , Constant Mists , Darkness Dawn Charm , Fog , Holy Day , Kami of False Hope , Lull And a couple draw engines to keep cards coming to your hand. Accumulated Knowledge Ancestral Recall Blue Sun's Zenith Etched Oracle Font of Fortunes Font of Mythos and just take no damage till you win.
This deck seems good, however if I were to make this deck, i would make a more turbo-fog type deck. With things like Fog (obviously), and Riot Control and Druid's Deliverance , and lastly, Defend the Hearth . However if you do that, don't expect to make friends! also an Elixir of Immortality mainboarded would work wonders (see Ivan Floch's U/W control list that won Pro Tour M15.)
Hey there, came here from my own bees deck you commented on, thought I'd take a look at yours.
I saw you said you didn't like Courser of Kruphix here, I'm curious as to exactly why? I have yet to meet a green deck that didn't like Courser, and by reading your matchups, it seems that it would be quite helpful for you (that big butt could really help against red aggro, for instance).
I'm also curious as to what matchups you pull Fog out of the the sideboard for? I'm not a fan of fog myself, but if I'm going to play it I'd rather have a couple mainboard than side, I can't think of a particular matchup I've ever been in where I thought "a fog would turn this whole matchup around!"
What I might do if I were you is pull at least a couple of fogs off the side for like 2 or 3 coursers. Then put them in against aggro decks. While not the fastest blocker to get out, the 4 toughness can really slow them down, enough to get your bees out.
Otherwise, really like what you did here.
