Gilt-Leaf Archdruid Discussion

Greater Good would only help when I am already pumping my elves and my deck no longer needs the gas... Though it is a great card. Nettle Sentinel does nothing I need in commander. There's is only Birchlore Rangers to exploit the untap. Not quite enough to justify inclusion. Nissa has been discussed quite a bit and I have considered Eternal Witness, Birthing Pod, Scroll Rack, Elvish Champion, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen and many others, but can't seem to pull the trigger do to sentiment and her being a removal target that takes a blow my combo pieces won't have to. Thanks so much for the continued input Poprox!!!

It may be a little low in mana; I haven't quite found the sweet spot yet. The problem with 20 lands is that, with too many lands, the card draw fizzles a lot, since our main drawing comes from casting creatures with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and Lifecrafter's Bestiary out. If we draw into a couple lands in a row, that can sometimes end the streak. Personally, I don't seem to have an issue getting a land and 1 drop in my hand, but early removal definitely kills our mana :(
I almost always have Druid of the Anima or Elvish Harbinger on the field before I'm ready to cast Banefire, so I actually haven't run into the red issue either. However, adding some red/green dual-lands would be safer; I was just being cheap!
I really like the Chord of Calling suggestion! Elvish Harbinger also helps find Ezuri, Renegade Leader (and Elvish Archdruid, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, or Nullmage Shepherd), but the Chord of Calling is definitely faster and more reliable.

Though, Nettle Sentinel really makes it shine if you take that route.

If you want Selvala, Heart of the Wilds in the deck try replacing Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip with her. Nissa seems unlikely to flip and there are superior sources of elf mana to be had. They also share a CMC so it would not change the mana curve and has the bonus of increasing devotion by . If Nissa is in for land fetching only you might consider Farhaven Elf instead as it does a better job and synergizes with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid by upping druid count by one.
On a slightly interesting rules note for Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, you can increase the creatures power before the ability resolves and guarantee a card if you have single target power boost abilities at instant speed. The most likely way to mitigate her downfall would be pumping your elves up higher then opponent creatures to deny them the card draw.

Your land count is RIDICULOUSLY low. I know your commander produces mana, and that you're playing lots of mana dorks, but I'm nervous about your ability to even cast them. At the very least, you will have difficulty rebuilding from a board wipe. For that reason, Heroic Intervention seems like a must here.
You have most of the good anti-blue pieces here (Hall of Gemstone, etc) but you could get great value out of Winter Orb, since you have enough mana dorks to compensate. Also, Carpet of Flowers is an oft-forgotten card that usually pulls its weight, and sometimes wins single-handed.
I really wish Conspiracy was in your colors...
Deck looks good to me! :)

I gotcha. In that case, I'd say either go for Mono-Green Devotion or Just Straight Elves, unless you are really wanting to try to go for the Banefire kill, which I still would suggest what I did.
Yes, Boreal Druid may be slightly worse, but not strictly. Still a good mana dork, if you want more mana.
Is the goal of this deck to make a ton of mana and then cast Banefire? Just making sure.

If you want a decent aggro creature to have a plan B, Ezuri, Renegade Leader is your dude.
Honestly, I'm not sure if this is better than normal Elves, but sure is cool! I would say add Grapeshot for a true storm deck, but that'd need a little different setup (Cloudstone Curio is your best friend).
Hope that helps!
