Grand Warlord Radha Discussion

I play Gruul because of Grand Warlord Radha. She's an Elf who gets pumped by Clancaller and her mana abilities fit right into a mana strategy of Elves. She's also a fantastic pairing with Steel Leaf Champion and Thorn Lieutenant. A strong curve of one, two, three drops and Radha is what my deck plays.
Post rotation Golgari or Jund, if a playable manabase can be made, will most likely be the directions I go because Golgari is a guild in Guilds of Ravnica. It's already been revealed that Elves are big part of the Golgari guild with Warrior and Shaman Elves in the set.
My current Golgari version of Elves: M19 Golgari Elves is using Poison-Tip Archer with sac outlets and Vraska, Relic Seeker. I also have a Simic version: M19 Simic Elves using Skyrider Patrol with Exclusion Mage and Hadana's Climb Flip.

Why 4 x Josu Vess, Lich Knight how often do you kick him in a match? What about when he's already on the field, he's just a dead card in your hand then. I would take out two and +1 Grand Warlord Radha and +1 Hallar, the Firefletcher.

Merrena, the Simic guild is not in the first Ravnica set Guild of Ravnica :( Simic is in the January 2019 second set Ravnica Allegiance. This is unfortunate, that's a long time to wait for new Simic Elves.
Because of still having three months of Botanical Sanctum Simic with Skyrider Patrol has potential until post rotation. I also really like Exclusion Mage even though it's not an Elf as well as another three drop it's effect is quite strong. Hadana's Climb Flip is a good include; it can win games out of no where. Negate perfect sideboard card for Elves. Nissa, Steward of Elements is a good mana sink.
I haven't really playtested Skyrider yet, but Grand Warlord Radha doesn't look like she fits. Can't use mana that Radha and Elves make after they attack with Skyrider's ability. It happens at beginning of combat this is before any Elf has attacked. I do like the idea however of equally attacking from both the ground and the air with Elves.
Two different angles of attack definitely can bring some added fun in gameplay. I like Skyrider with Thorn Lieutenant, Steel Leaf Champion, Clancaller and Marwyn. Giving Thorn flying is very good with his pump ability. Champion and Skyrider curve into each other for a nasty turn five attack.

Hey Merrena, that's Skyrider Elf :) Card looks good it gives Elves something to use mana with every turn at the same time giving the army more power (although counters are getting kind of boring) seems good with Marwyn. Wish Skyrider could put a counter on itself this would make it better. I also like the new Golgari four drop Elf Poison-Tip Archer. The combination of reach and deathtouch is great with Elves and the pseudo Blood Artist effect brings new sac strategies to the tribe.
I've been playtesting 4x Elvish Rejuvenator and 4x Adventurous Impulse with three color manabases: Jund, Naya and Temur. We already know Elves are Golgari and Simic in Ravnica. I have a feeling he's going to be a key Elf post rotation replacing Rishkar to be able to play either black or blue for new Ravnica Elves with red for Grand Warlord Radha and green for the other Elves. So far I've been very impressive with Rejuvenator. Looking five cards deep is enough to consistently hit a Check land, Territory or Forest with 23 lands, 22 lands is also playtesting fine. Adding possible reprinted Shock lands in Guilds of Ravnica to the Check land manabase will make three color manabases very good.
I'm eagerly waiting to see what lands are in M19. The set so far looks great, but it needs an excellent rare land cycle of lands. Wizards is waiting until the end of spoilers to reveal the lands in M19. I think this means they're good, going to be impactful. Usually by now we know what the land cycle of a set is, but with M19 spoilers ending on Friday and the full set being revealed then, it's down to the wire.

Coward_Token: I found a less janky way of endless combat steps with Primal Surge, just roll out Grand Warlord Radha + Savage Ventmaw + Aggravated Assault (cheaper) or Hellkite Charger (expensive) + any haste source + enough creatures to pay for extra attack steps. Some cards that might show up along the way can help protect the attackers such as Vigor, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cauldron of Souls. You can also get enough mana to recast Squee, the Immortal as sacrifice fodder and/or tap Feldon of the Third Path to get "endless" copies of pretty much any non-legendary creature in the graveyard, for example fun stuff like It That Betrays to really hammer down that victory.
Although it's most likely a guaranteed win if Primal Surge resolves, I'd probably not like to make the deck tutor it up and cast it consistently because it'd turn boring quickly for everyone.

@DarkerThan13lack that's right. "Although the tokens created by Najeela’s first ability are attacking, they were never declared as attacking creatures (for the purposes of abilities that trigger whenever a creature attacks, for example)."
Those tokens don't trigger Druids' Repository, Grand Warlord Radha or Shared Animosity. However, since they are attacking when Shared Animosity's ability resolves, they do count for the bonus the other creatures get.
