Glissa Sunseeker Discussion

going ultra competitive, I presume you are aiming at a Sisay Combo approach, like I did.Then I would cut these cards:
- Angel of Jubilation : too many intensive for what it does and can't be fetched by Sisay
- Eight-and-a-Half-Tails : You are the agressor, so the protection is not needed. Most of the time you use the mana to play powerful spells anyway.
- Oath of Nissa : Not powerful enough to warrent a spot
- Oath of Ajani : likewise
- Chromatic Lantern : too slow for Sisay. I feel that each piece of ramp that you find in your opening hand should help you get Sisay out a turn sooner. For a 2-color deck I think there are far better options in this color combination.
- Aven Mindcensor : This will hurt people. You can even respond to a fetch land ;-)
- Avacyn, Angel of Hope : This is a powerhouse where the mana intensive cmc is justified
- Glissa Sunseeker : It is partially a meta call, but I love it to screw with peoples boardstate by blowing up vital artifacts. But I sometimes take te stax route and this helps me do it.
- Mangara of Corondor : If there is a problem on the board, this baby will solve it for you and can be found by Sisay.
Overall, you have to be prepared to sink some serious money into a competitive build, because cards like Gaea's Cradle, Grim Monolith, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Mana Crypt and such really improve the pace and consistancy of the deck.
And then we didn't even discuss the landbase. Which is also an expensive part.
Still it's great to pilot her, even when you are not at full potential yet.
Best of luck and fun!

Malakir Bloodwitch might have a place here--there's enough Vampires to keep it active, even if it's not overwhelming.
I think Puppeteer Clique might work, but the art's a little ambiguous.
Bitterblossom gives you more expendable sacrifice fodder or blockers. Or attackers, if you get enough.
Glissa Sunseeker should join too. Everybody runs artifacts.

I did a few playtests. The deck can go off, but it's also really limited in the first few turns by the high number of 4 and 5 mana sphinxes. It's also really luck based from the limited tutor power. (The time I went off I had Paradox in my opener.)
griffstick, CyborgAeon: One card does not a meta make. There are plenty of black stax decks in the upper tiers. There's also plenty of decks packing answers for those decks in the top tiers. Nearly every color has access to similar effect anyway (Blood Moon, Back to Basics, Choke, Winter Orb.) No card is powerful enough that we're going to demote commanders left and right because of it.
Hissp, Yeah, I think I'm probably going to put that one up. It's too polished not to have.
apavel, Started a Xiahou brew for you: Xiahou Brew. Not finished, but Him + Paradox Engine + Reanimation Spell seems like a neat way to get infinite mana. Plus you can dump your finisher in the yard. It's probably still going to be T3 though.
Razulghul, Partner commanders are weird because we're not ranking them off of every possible combination here. Can you post over on List of Partner Pairs by Tier with a short description of how your deck plays?
M8yena, That's an interesting deck, but I think it might be too many hoops to jump though for Tolsimir to move up. For comparison, I can make an elfball version of Glissa Sunseeker that blows up all artifacts as it goes off, and it would be about as good as other elfball decks, but that's not enough of an edge to promote her either. It also doesn't help that your main combo is a default 12 mana to play.

Looks like you got most of the major players minus these-
Other good stuff
You can also search up planeswalkers now as well since they are legendary. That opens up a whole other aspect of deck building depending on what you want to do. Hope this gives you some more ideas to brew with!

3 removals, like you said, is definitely way too low. Of course, doesn't have a LOT of removal, but you can consider those :
Scour from Existence, Bramblecrush, Desert Twister, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Reclaiming Vines. Land destruction is good for those who use Glacial Chasm, which is bad for your strategy. All Is Dust ONLY if you're in a pinch.
To a certain extent, you can go the route of making everything on the board an artifact with Mycosynth Lattice and all the green artifact/enchantment removal becomes effective against anything - even lands.
Also, an elf deck without Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury? BLASPHEMY! (I'm joking.)
Non-elf too good to pass : Eternal Witness.
Notable utility : Mirri's Guile is a free pseudo scry 3, every turn. Abundance if you do not need any other land drop OR if your absolutely need a land, you can choose... AND! If you got Sylvan Library out with it, it transforms it into a free Draw 3 every turn due to its replacement effect!
Hope this helps a bit!

Hmm...what about Glissa Sunseeker?

Hey you're welcome glad I could help. The changes you've made look good, you've done very well to keep the deck under $60. Thanks also for the upvote at Fury.
Here's three cut options to consider to try to make room for Harbinger. Option one: cut Rishkar, Peema Renegade($1.81), Predation($.47) and Offering($.47). Option two: cut Glissa Sunseeker, Predation and Offering which is lacking $.50 of $2.50. Option three: cut both Rishkar and Glissa.
Your deck is currently at 102 cards so you need to make two cuts to make 100. Rishkar is close to $2.00 making him the best most cost effective cut to add Harbinger. I make these suggestions to add Harbinger because she has much more impact in the deck because she can tutor for any Elf. Rishkar has synergy with a few Elves, but not enough to matter and compare with what Harbinger does for the deck. Ramp is also not really a concern, you have plenty of ramp with lots of other Elves, but creature tutors are lacking which I understand is because of the low budget. Glissa is okay, but she can't compare with what Harbinger does.
