Indigoindigo on Choosing the most competitive cards ...

5 days ago

My meta has certain restrictions for card-selection / play style, and my reasons for posting is my wish to find the most competitive cards for ramp, draw, etc, within those restrictions. My meta is a very play tempo-focused meta: No T1 GSZ, T2 Demonic Tutor and then slowing down games with Top, etc... We have little time for play and would like more play, less shuffling.

So: I can't rely on massive tutoring (or infinite combo), but need to find the best cards that make the biggest splash when played. In short: The most bang for my CMC.

My questions are:
What cards should I consider that make the biggest impact when played?

Am I missing some cards that are played/ should be played in competitive lists (except tutors and infinite combo-enablers)?

Are there cards that would give me bigger rewards in terms of relative card advantage compared to those I'm playing?

Some competitive lists run really explosive ramp with all dorks available (Elvish Pioneer, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Bloom Tender, Lotus Cobra, Birds) + Exploration, Burgeoning, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl and Sol Ring at 1CMC. Should I find more room for dorks to speed up my deck, or do I run enough ramp?

Some considerations so far: More cheap removal (Oust, Path of Exile, Pongify, Nature's Claim, Qasali Pridemage), more gravehate (Loaming Shaman, Stonecloaker (also protection)), instant flicker-effects (Momentary Blink, Ghostly Flicker, Restoration Angel), bigger draw-effects (i.e. Recurring Insight, Sphinx's Revelation), more sweepers (Wrath of God, Supreme Verdict, Cataclysm) and protection (i.e. Sylvan Safekeeper)

Hm okay :P well, for a starter deck, it's definitely something! It's not bad for casual!

I think there are a few improvements you can make to it though that are completely budget!

First off, -4 Arbor Elf because you only need four one cost mana dorks, and Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic, I think, are just a lot simpler and better to use.

Second, because it's an elves deck, remove those beasts! It ruins the idea of tribal D:

Fyndhorn Elves aren't modern legal, so those should be a take out as well.

I think you should add in Elvish Promenade because it gives a lot of tokens, and it's a great budget card.

Bramblewood Paragon is extremely strong with Promenade by making all of the tokens 2/2s, so that's something to add in as well.

Bow of Nylea is also a pretty fun card for elves, so maybe you can add that in too with your extra slots :)

Ambush Viper is OK, but being a two mana 'Removal' spell is kind of meh. Most decks either attack with a giant unblockable commander, or attack with a swarm of little dudes, and he stops neither. Golden Hind is overcosted, at least Sylvan Caryatid taps for any colour. Without lands that are Forest + another Type, Arbor Elf is pretty much worse than Fyndhorn Elves, because the elves always tap for mana, wherein the Arbor Elf might not always be online.

Sylvan Library is the best green enchant of them all, essentially pondering every turn, and sometimes Ancestral Recalling when you really need the cards. Llanowar Elves is so over played, I would switch to Fyndhorn Elves.

Dwynen 100% I think is bad... its too slow, Rhys the Exiled is faster and better if you are playing ; hell even in my mono color green deck I run him. However since this is fucking legacy, for all that is holy, run Wellwisher!!!

Not a big fan of Gnarlroot because losing life for mana when you have Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, or Elvish Mystic is insane.

Also lands 4x Gilt-Leaf Palace, 2/3x Llanowar Wastes if you are only running shaman of the pack is silly.

Nissa isn't need, and is too expensive currently.

Lys Alana is too slow.

Run 4xWirewood Lodges, scrap slippery karst and setessian tactics

Mercy Killing provides great removal, or doubles your elves off of your heedless one

Collected Company is almost a must have for elves, i'd even run 3 if not 4 of them

Sideboard the archers and rec sage

Run FOUR Joraga Warcallers which you can do the Immaculate Magistrate + Joraga Warcaller /Bramblewood Paragon + Joraga Warcaller combos, my favorite elf in the game actually.

since you are running numbers over beatdown, I'd definitely run Dwynen's Elite

Elemental Bond is a no no, because most elves enter as 1/1's before their lord buffs

Imperious Perfect is great token production, and a lord

Ezuri, Renegade Leader is so good; Tap Druid, overrun with ezuri, untap druid w/wirewood lodge, overrun again with ezuri... so good.

Copperhorn Scout is a great because you can attack with everything and then still use their tap abilities in the declare blockers phase

Elvish Champion is great sideboard material unless you really wanna Elvish Champion + Yavimaya Dryad

If you have any questions let me know, also as a reference here is my modern elf deck(except wirewood lodges, gotta take them out). it's really fast to be modern, but legacy stuff makes it so much better.
