Immaculate Magistrate Discussion

Arbor Elf usually isn't a solid choice as for elf decks as you already tend to go for unlimited mana/life with Essence Warden.Immaculate Magistrate is a cool card, but with the mana cost it usually wouldn't be thrown into an elf deck.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader(as well as Craterhoof Behemoth) is usually a one of which can be fetched with Summoner's Pact. I respect that you're trying to bust out Eldrazi's with elves, but I just feel like other elf decks combo better together.
Not sure what your strategy with Dryad Arbor is. That is a sideboard card for my Infect deck, that I would bring in against a Liliana of the Veil (they use the -2 to make me sac a creature, I crack a fetchland and sacrifice Dryad Arbor instead of my infect creature. I've never seen anyone mainboard a playset.
You'll definitely want to throw in some Nettle Sentinels for your Heritage Druid. Take a look at my friend's deck Call Elves for some Elf deck pointers. This isn't 100% current, but I still use it for play testing. At the moment he is pondering over splashing in a little bit of black for Shaman of the Pack.

Okay, so I am a huge Elf tribal fan. What exactly are you wanting to do with this deck? As it stands, it's consistency is not very tuned.
Here's a suggestion
- 4x Joraga Warcaller
- 4x Metallic Mimic
- 4x Llanowar Elves
- 4x Imperious Perfect
- 2x Ezuri, Renegade Leader
- 2x Immaculate Magistrate
- 2x Fauna Shaman
What this setup does is pretty nifty, it's a super powerful counters combo. You use Llanowar Elves for ramp, and since this is a relatively low CMC deck structure you can use it to kick Joraga Warcaller more easily. You use Metallic Mimic as an Elf tribal, giving your Joraga Warcaller an automatic counter when he comes into play (you can kick for extra). Joraga Warcaller buffs other elves for the counters that on him, and they all already receive an extra +1/+1 counter from Metallic Mimic. Then, you use Imperious Perfect as another Elf lord, who also can create Elf tokens. Making a single Elf token with this entire combo average at a 5/5 Elf creature on early turns. Even earlier with more ramp, which you can add into the spells. Ezuri, Renegade Leader offers utility for the Elves, he can regenerate them. Then, you have Fauna Shaman who can Tutor out creatures to set up the combos. Lastly, Immaculate Magistrate who is your end game and win condition, she can make your elves HUGE. Just add trample.
The exact numbers for these are up to you, and you can add in other cards too. What this package offers though is incredible utility and damage prevention.
Let me know what you think, and if there is a budget you're trying to stick to.

thanks AIOSDev05. i didnt think Drove of Elves, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, or Immaculate Magistrate because i feel like the other win conditions are better and i didnt like Elvish Harbinger because it just seemed too slow.

I would advise the use of Drove of Elves, Jagged-Scar Archers, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Immaculate Magistrate, and probably an Elvish Mystic or two. Rhys the Redeemed is another typical go-to if you don't care about cost which, it appears, you do not.
It is curious that the majority of your deck's cost comes in the form of lands and off-color sideboard cards rather than putting some of the really heavy hitting elves in the deck.

As it sits right now, you're completely open to removal and your CMC for the deck is nearly at 3 because of a few cards. In modern, you won't likely get those high cost cards out most of the time because your opponent will aggro your mana combo cards with removal or kill spells. So, you need a good back up strategy that can do a lot of damage without that heavy mana cost or combo reliance. Doing a solid Elf tribal here would help you out a lot, and you can keep Quillspike in the deck as a wincon with Rite of Consumption and Devoted Druid. You can just pump up Quillspike then use Rite of Consumption to deal lethal. If it doesn't work out and gets countered, the other Elves in the deck will still synergize and have a chance to win the game. Especially the Joraga Warcaller and Immaculate Magistrate combo. Then add Shaman of the Pack for a quick shot directly at the opponent. Imperious Perfect can help produce Elves and buffs them. Glissa, the Traitor can pretty much block ANYTHING because of her First Strike and Deathtouch combo. She can also be used to fetch artifacts from your graveyard, for instance.. say.. a Ratchet Bomb.

Glissa, the Traitor, Surgical Extraction, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Gyre Sage, Treasured Find, Golgari Charm, Vines of Vastwood, Shaman of the Pack, Collected Company, Armorcraft Judge, Champion of Lambholt, Maralen of the Mornsong, Gilt-Leaf Palace, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Elvish Piper, Imperious Perfect, Immaculate Magistrate, Joraga Warcaller, Eternal Witness, Heroic Intervention, Putrefy, Abrupt Decay, Eyeblight Massacre, Smother, and Damnation are all cards you could consider as well.

Rhys the Exiled, Beastcaller Savant, Bloom Tender, Imperious Perfect, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Elvish Champion, Elvish Piper, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Gaea's Herald, Immaculate Magistrate, Joiner Adept, Mul Daya Channelers, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Oracle of Mul Daya, and Fauna Shaman are all missing though! Seriously, you can't have an Elf deck without a few of these thrown in there. This is why I play Elf based EDH decks, I like them all too much to go without one. Haha. +1
I love Elf decks.
