Pretty nasty deck. Gilt-Leaf Archdruid looks like a game winner. I can't imagine losing all your land and still wanting to play any more, and you have a huge number of 1 mana Druids so it wouldn't be very hard. Only suggestion I can think of is a Door of Destinies instead of Coat of Arms. The +1/+1 stays for each you cast so even if you lose all your creatures at any point, the next one will still be boosted and you don't have to rely on a steady board state.

Cloudstone Curio makes one drops have infinite ETB/cast triggers when Seton, Krosan Protector is out. (need 2 one drop creatures)

Devoted Druid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector also creates infinite ETB/cast triggers on devoted druid.

Be careful when using Beast Whisperer, Glimpse of Nature, Guardian Project, and Vanquisher's Banner as you dont want to mill yourself.

Devoted Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector is the standard infinite mana.

Stone-Seeder Hierophant and Elvish Pioneer also work really well with Cloudstone Curio and another 1 drop creature. This gets all lands into play untapped from your hand.

Note that after drawing your deck you will have some combination of Mobilize, Vitalize, and Benefactor's Draught. Playing all of the one-drops (and other low-cost minions) can help get you the mana to start going infinte.

lets use our deck now.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid is a good first option, taking your opponents lands removes most of their options

Helix pinacle is noteable (you can max out to win by your next upkeep if everything else goes wrong)

We can pump up our creatures using Leyline of Abundance, giving creatures infinite +1 +1 counters

Thorn Mammoth and Vigor remove your opponents board. If they somehow have enough toughness to still be alive, you can use one of the infinite ETB combos.

Craterhoof Behemoth is the only card we have with haste, but it shouldnt matter as they wont have lands (Gilt-Leaf Archdruid), creatures (Thorn Mammoth + Vigor), artifacts or enchantments (Acidic Slime + Temur Sabertooth)

I remember drafting a Modern Masters deck with a bunch of changelings plus the cat lord plus some slivers. It was very sweet and I think much smaller scale version of what you've got here. On a theorycraft level at least, I'd like to see lot of changelings and have it matter that they have multiple types (e.g. my creature is very cool/powerful with it being a dragon/wizard/cat/some other oddball type). That would incline me to add more changelings in the mix (such as the one Jack mention plus any other low mana cost changeling not mentioned like say Shapesharer).

I think it could be interesting to have each lord be for a different type like only one for dragons, one for slivers, one ninjas, one for turtles. Say Deathbellow War Cry for minotaurs, Ayula, Queen Among Bears, I love Gilt-Leaf Archdruid even if the ult is kind of mean. There are lot of options lots of potential for personalization, that's how I'd go about it.

Regarding some of the cards not already discussed, I see a couple cards that grant your double strike, which I'd want to pair with cards that add a large power boost like Megantic Sliver or Crucible of Fire

There really isn't a so to speak druid or cleric deck, but I mean, there are support cards to druids... I don't think you'll get a strong deck out of it, though. (Clerics don't have any modern legal support cards as far as I know. You'll need to go to legacy for that)

Druids aren't great... But it does have Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , which combined with a lot of mana dorks could make an okay combo deck with Arbor Elf , Boreal Druid , Beast Whisperer , Devoted Druid , Elves of Deep Shadow , Elvish Mystic , Llanowar Elves and such...

matttrenk First of all! Thanks a lot, it is more of a jank build because of the Tribal theme, but here it is how you combo off: Aluren + Intruder Alarm + Chulane, Teller of Tales + Any 1-3 drop that you can bounce off, you bounce it with Chulane and recast for free, wich will untap Chulane, and you will draw your whole deck and get all the land drops, then: win via Jace or Lab Maniac.

My personal favorite: Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and the one from above: Steal all the lands.

Yes! Reaper King! That card has always been close to my heart, so it's always great to see a deck for him.

I've brewed with it extensively, so I have some suggestions for you:

Due to all of the changelings, you can really abuse those creature types. Naban, Dean of Iteration will duplicate triggers with "scarecrows" and Rattlechains can grant them all flash.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , if it's within budget, allows for quite a bit of card draw and a win-condition attached to it.

Gisa and Geralf will be able to recur the changelings for later use.

Knight Exemplar is fantastic defense for your board, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can draw many cards, Sygg, River Guide can protect creatures, and Ingenious Infiltrator can be awesome if you start to swarm. With so many creatures, Call to the Kindred could be cute.

Harsh Mercy or Kindred Dominance can be largely one-sided wraths, so that's something to note.

Reaper King is a massive target whenever he hits the field, so it's important to have a few backup plans.

Good luck with Scarecrows and Vindicate EVERYTHING!

Hello everyone, I am looking for help with my deck:

Elf/Druid tribal

Commander / EDH* jetnerd


By way of short explanation, I enjoy the ability of Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and want to see it happen as much as possible, so I built this deck. However, I understand that a deck needs more than one ability to revolve around and therefore am asking for advice from our veteran community!

I'm fairly new to deckbuilding and not familiar with the vast arsenal of possibilities this game offers.

Specifically I am looking for answers to a few questions: 1. How can I make improvements without buying a bunch of $40 or similarly expensive cards to do so? 2. What are some good options for artifact removal and responses to board control (counterspells, limiting effects, etc.) 3. Are there any druids I am missing that would be a crime to leave out of an elvish druid deck? 4. Are there any maybeboard cards I should prioritize acquiring? 5. How can I improve my mana ramping from here? 6. Is there any advice that I haven't asked for that you feel would improve this deck greatly (please share if so!)
