Fyndhorn Elves Discussion

Just FYI craterhoof is one of if not the most powerful green guy. I just don't own one, or I would run him for sure.
Also, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves are great, and curve very well to allow for a turn 2 omnath. I even tossed in Elvish Spirit Guide, and Lotus Petal to try to get turn 2 nath as much as I can.

Yes! I love Yasova in Tiny Leaders. He's so good, yes so underrated!
First of all, you will want you're own fatties, like Savage Knuckleblade, Goblin Rabblemaster, True-Name Nemesis, Burning-Tree Shaman, Nulltread Gargantuan, Goblin Guide, Flamewake Phoenix, Heir of the Wilds, etc...

Off the top of my head, you ought to drop:
- Ambush Commander: Having lands that are creatures is asking to be field wiped I think
- Arbor Elf: He's pretty weaksauce as a creature and as ramp.
- Civic Wayfinder: he's pretty bad ramp
- Elvish Archers: just not up to edh snuff
- Elvish Mystic: also kinda bad ramp. Ask yourself, do you see yourself being happy you drew this on turn 9?
Side note: why is Ezuri, Renegade Leader NOT your commander?
- Ezuri's Archers: weak
- Fyndhorn Elves: bad ramp
- Gaea's Skyfolk: weak
- Gladecover Scout: weak
- Llanowar Elves: good for 60 card maybe, I don't see it in edh
- Sages of the Anima: A little sketchy maybe. you gotta be sure you don't want a non-creature card
- Scattershot Archer: weak
- Sylvan Ranger: bad ramp
That's 13 cards you can toss. My overall impression is that you're trying to field a lot of really low cost, low power elves, which is really only feasible if you have a really good way to power them up consistently and/or can draw and play a lot to try and swarm and make up for losses. Maybe look into Beastmaster Ascension, Military Intelligence, Bow of Nylea for sure, Gaea's Anthem, Curse of Predation possibly, Death's Presence,Primitive Etchings, and Wild Pair.
Maybe that's helpful? I just don't like creatures for ramp when you could get a sorcery or instant to get you a land. And 1/1's or 2/2's in edh? you have to argue that one to me pretty well.

I also run Arbor Elf, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, and Tinder Wall on top of Wild Cantor and Birds of Paradise. They are more dependant on me getting dual lands out on my first couple of turns if I want a turn 2 Animar, but they at least up the probability of it happening.

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
