Fyndhorn Elves Discussion
7 hours ago
Hey, saw your thread on Reddit about omnath. I just started looking there. Omnath is one of my favorite decks. I recently switched mine to French rules, but it is the same idea. Omnastic
Traveler's Amulet is no good. Wayfarer's Bauble is better, but not really necessary here.
You have a great start. Let me know if you need anything else.

Imo Craterhoof Behemoth is a must for any mana ramp elf deck, it's simply the best finisher available right now.
I'm not a big fan of the Joraga Warcaller / Immaculate Magistrate combo. It may be fun for a purely casual deck, but for an even remotely competitive Legacy deck it's simply far too slow. Plus Warcaller can't be kicked if cast with Green Sun's Zenith or Genesis Wave, so more often than not he will end up as a 1/1 elf with no abilities.
One other problem I see is the lack of turn 1 options you have. You are forced to play a land and do nothing else, which is a wasted turn. Especially for a ramp deck. I would remove some unneeded win cons and add some Llanowar Elves and/or Fyndhorn Elves.
I also love Quirion Ranger, they're simply awesome for elf mana ramps since you can often reuse forests and untap elves at the same time. And naturally Heritage Druid is great as well, even without the (imo unreliable) Nettle Sentinel / Glimpse of Nature combo. But you'd need a lot more 1 mana dorks or he will be quite useless.
Sorry for the long post, that's all for now. I simply love elf decks, it's my favorite type of deck. I look at every elf deck I see around here. And upvoted of course!

I would maybe cut Umbra Mystic and Dauntless Escort for Boar Umbra and Bear Umbra since they both give the same protection your looking for with the 2 creatures and they make a better voltron. I also would drop Mirran Crusader since the pro green is counter productive to your auras. Maybe bring in a Courser of Kruphix or an Oracle of Mul Daya instead for the draw filtering. Fyndhorn Elves is not really the best mana dork in town, i would maybe recommend Joraga Treespeaker since you can put Sigarda on turn 3 with it. The Day of Judgment could be replaced with a Winds of Rath wich is cheap for the advantage it gives you most of the time.
Eternal Witness is kinda a staple in green and is even better if you bring in a Flickerform as either evasion or combo with other ETB cards such as your Fiend Hunter, and if you really want to be hated with that aura, put it on an Acidic Slime.Your Mana Tithe and Savage Summoning are there because I'm guessing that there is a lot of control in your playgroup, but I'd say it's a bit overkill and not always relevant, with this kind of deck i'm more in the mindset of putting more enchantments with synergy and letting the other player trying to deal with these, since enchantment removal isn't such a big part of most players in EDH. Like putting a Luminarch Ascension and with your Dueling Grounds it's a good enchantment since once it's on you have infinite blockers and attackers and you don't fear wraths or removal anymore. You can also go for Sigil of the Empty Throne but the mana cost is turning me down.
Sorry for the long text so here's my +1 and come and check my take on 1v1 Sigarda if you want! I've been piloting it and updating it for 2 years now :D Sigarda, French Banlist commander duel

also looked through a little more and there are some cards that seemed... off in mono-green. Lay of the Land Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds could literally all be a basic forest and work better by either not entering tapped, or not costing mana. Myriad Landscape is also better as a forest, as there are many better ramp options in green that don't take 2 turns and a land drop, for super cheap. like Skyshroud Claim Cultivate Kodama's Reach Explosive Vegetation Primal Growth Search for Tomorrow Growth Spasm, the list goes on but that should be more than enough, as you don't want too much ramp with no threats to spend the mana on.
i also suggest running all the 1 drop mana dorks green has since a t2 yisan is noticeably better than t3, and again these are dirt cheap. the ones you don't have are Arbor Elf Boreal Druid Fyndhorn Elves. there is Birds of Paradise too but those are spendy and unnecessary in mono-green. some other 1 drop ramp cards are Skyshroud Ranger Sakura-Tribe Scout Elvish Pioneer and Krosan Wayfarer but these are kinda meh, since you either need to have that 3rd land in hand or have to sac the creature off.

I am aware. Its the same thing as elvish mystic but Fyndhorn Elves is 300% better

Thanks for the suggestions BozDaDoz. I find myself constantly cutting creatures actually, as I just cut Courser of Kruphix. Originally this was a very creature Heavy deck, but I started leaning more towards using my general as my win condition, as it's such a good beat stick. I have actually been thinking of re-adding my Fyndhorn Elves back to the deck, as turn 2 Doran is really powerful. If I would what would I cut? Additionally, I have been thinking of cutting a sword mainboard and replacing Sword of War and Peace in the side board. Which sword should I cut and what would you replace with it. And yea, while I have no graveyard synergy, the reason Smallpox is mainboard is because it's a legal Balance in my opinion, and it helps get around Geist of Saint Traft, which I see at my store frequently. Agadeem Occultist seems like it would fit more for a graveyard interaction deck. Anafenza, the Foremost used to be in this deck, but was once again cut. But yea definitely not a lot of big dudes other than Doran. Idk why I gravitate all of my EDH decks to be built around the Commander, but I just do. For some reason this turned out to play like a heavy board control deck.
