Graypelt Refuge Discussion

Hi there.

Some first glance tips:

I'd get rid of the Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse. Too slow and you don't need so much land-grabbing in a two-coloured deck. I'd add a Sunpetal Grove and Blossoming Sands/Graypelt Refuge if the lifegain is really what you want. I wouldn't tell with the cards here. Maybe some more of it?
Archangel of Thune, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Angelic Accord, Obstinate Baloth and such. Also: Felidar Sovereign if you get enough life. Some little ones to help out more: Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant.

If you're up for an Elf theme: Elvish Archdruid is awesome.

I would suggest tightening up the mana base a little by taking things out like Blossoming Sands, Elfhame Palace, Fortified Village, Graypelt Refuge, and Tranquil Expanse. And then add in basic lands, I feel like they will help you more as in commander you don't really have to worry about land draw since the games usually take longer and late game, the last thing you want is a land that enters tapped.

Based on the above (now only 2 basics, generally no MLD in my playgroup), and the fact that most of my land is CIPT now, can anyone think of a reason to not switch the final Forest and Plains out for a Graypelt Refuge and Tranquil Expanse?

Also, what's with the card links above being in yellow? Is it just me seeing that?

A few suggestions:

19 lands is not going to be enough in a deck that wants to cast 4 and 5 CMC spells like Starfield of Nyx. You may have to go as high as 24 lands.

Holy Day should probably go in your sideboard.

Journey to Nowhere should go in your main-board. It's better than either Silkwrap or Plummet.

Courser of Kruphix should go in your main-board. It's better than any of your other 3 CMC creatures.

Get a play-set of Eidolon of Blossoms.

Archetype of Endurance is just too darn expensive. It's just not worth it.

Kruphix's Insight should be pretty amazing in a deck like this.

Some land options that are a step up from Graypelt Refuge and Selesnya Sanctuary: Sunpetal Grove, Canopy Vista, Fortified Village, and Temple of Plenty.

I actually also think you need Riftstone Portal, and if you have to play tapped lands, I think that Blossoming Sands and Graypelt Refuge are better than other tapped mana-fixing lands, unless you're focused on thinning also, then basics are the way to go. There is always a chance for Blighted Woodland.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion (not human-related, saves you $7 and a slot)

Swiftfoot Boots (you have 2x listed)

Tireless Tracker (you don't have other Clue generators, and there are better cards for that slot)

Hamlet Captain (really small impact compared to other cards)

Heron's Grace Champion (again, if you need slots you could cut this for a bigger impact card)

Twilight Drover (helpful for tokens, but not Human related, so you could cut it)

It's expensive but Archangel of Thune is great. Every Lifegain trigger makes your army bigger!

Also, Trostani is very demanding on your colors and it would be unfortunate if you couldn't cast her(it?) because you can't find your colors. Luckily cards like Sunpetal Grove, Graypelt Refuge, Temple Garden and Savannah exist to make it easier. There's also Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Krosan Verge, Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse that help you get the color you need when you need it. Obviously some of these are more budget than others but it's worth it for how much smoother your game feels.

What are your thoughts? Have you sleeved this up yet and taken it for a spin?
