Hunting Triad Discussion
1 month ago
Seems to me that Marwyn would be all about that elf-token life! Things like Hunting Triad and Sylvan Offering might be worthwhile to make her huge - the latter especially since she can provide a huge amount of mana for it.
If you're after more card draw, Collective Unconscious may just be a worse Shamanic Revelation but it's still very much worth it if you're doubling down on elf production. You might also appreciate more reliable and long-term card drawing, such as Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun and/or Mind's Eye - things that your commander can hurry out but will still be worthwhile even if you're having trouble building up your board. Best of all, if you're able to afford it, Staff of Domination would be like a dream. As soon as Marwyn has five or more power, you get infinite life and can draw all the cards you want.

There's only 10 creatures that benefit fully from the cost reduction on Urza's Incubator, assuming you choose Elf. That's not even half of your creatures. I think you'd be better off with Herald's Horn.
Also, Concordant Crossroads to be able to attack right away once you've assembled your combo.

Hunting Triad feels like a flavor card, but 3 tokens/ 3 counters seems kind of lack luster
Elvish Piper Your curve is peeking around 2-3 with very little high cmc creatures. Great card, but you wont benefit much from it. It's more for big green beatdown, not so much swarm
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds Another good card that works better in a big creature deck. You're making a bunch of little 1/1s. I can't see you really benefiting from her draw effect or her tap ability that much.
Elvish Visionary Cantrips are fine (play a card, draw a card), but if you are having a hard time cutting cards, you could do without.
Elvish Vanguard Needs a lot of set up and is very fragile with no protection or battle tricks
Elfhame Druid I didn't see a lot of kicker cards, and it looks like you have plenty of ramp already
Protean Hulk Sounds crazy, but if you don't have a combo you can search out with his LTB, I'm not sure how much uselful it will be.
Mass Discard. A lot of your discards are single target, you might want to add some more Multi target (if there are any more).
Win conditions. The most generic win con for token decks is a surprise mass buff like Craterhoof Behemoth, add some more. Tribal Forcemage fits your flavor, Overrun and (I'm gonna regret this) Triumph of the Hordes can be just as deadly as Craterhoof. Beastmaster Ascension takes a bit of set up, but in a token deck its pretty easy to activate.
There you go. Your 150 card edh deck is complete! xD

Have you considered Hunting Triad? It's a quick and easy way to make your big elves go infinite.Awesome deck btw. :)

Thanks for all the suggestions! Elvish Mystic is a quite obvious pick indeed. As for Reclamation Sage and Elvish Visionary, I really don't want to decrease the number of warriors too much since it would limit Bramblewood Paragon's effect; Elvish Visionary is neat though, think I'll put it in the maybeboard and make some tests.
I added 2 Gruul Turf for now since I don't have enough budget to afford other dual rares. The same goes for Ezuri, it's reaally expensive so I hope 1 will be effective enough.
At the moment I'm considering these changes:
+2 other instants (same as above, don't know exactly which ones)
+1 Hunting Triad to compensate the token production

Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds and Sylvan Ranger seem unnecessary for this list. They're mostly good for fixing your mana (which, as a mono-green deck, is unneeded). If you really want a 2-drop creature that adds a card to your hand as an ETB, Elvish Visionary is probably a better choice.
Your land count seems kind of high for an elf deck. Your list inspired me to try building Elfball in yet another format, and neither version I built had more than 13 lands (though one version used a land as the Noble).

This is a totally different take on Rhys from my first time around. I had been indiscriminate about the tokens I used in my original build. Here, I'm trying to make it more of an elf deck that is subordinated by tokens. I'm curious to see if Rhys' first activated ability can produce enough tokens to get threatening. It's definitely going to be a learning experience.
What does everyone running a Rhys elf ball deck think? Do you find you need more token production? I've got some other cards at the ready to include if needed, such as Dwynen's Elite, Hunting Triad, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Mercy Killing, Sylvan Offering. And because we've got a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck in our group, I've got Flourishing Defenses ready too.
If you're running more elf token production, what are you cutting to get those token spells in?

first wave of cuts: Unbridled Growth does literally nothing in mono-green, Prophetic Prism same reason, Karametra's Favor don't need. also anything that is giving you energy you dont need it. unless you have some pay off for energy there is no point in running those
things to add (this is a long list so obviously just pick things up as you can. also not all of this will fit in but this is all good stuff):Arbor Elf, Allosaurus Rider, Birchlore Rangers, Bow of Nylea, Cultivate, Devoted Druid, Drove of Elves, Druid of the Cowl, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Promenade, Elvish Vanguard, Everglove Courier, Explosive Vegetation, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Fyndhorn Elder, Gaea's Herald, Gladehart Cavalry, Glissa Sunseeker, Greatbow Doyen, Green Sun's Zenith, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heritage Druid, Harmonize, Hunting Triad, Immaculate Magistrate, Imperious Perfect, Joraga Treespeaker, Joraga Warcaller, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Bowmaster, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Masked Admirers, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Norwood Priestess, Nullmage Shepherd, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Priest of Titania, Realm Seekers, Reclamation Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Tajuru Preserver, Talara's Battalion, terrastodon, Thornweald Archer, Titania's Chosen, Viridian Shaman, Wellwisher, Wildslayer Elves, Winnower Patrol, Wirewood Elf, Wren's Run Packmaster, Yeva, Nature's Herald
(takes giant breath)
yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.
