Imperious Perfect Discussion

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


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.

Sorcery/ Instants

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.

Nissa Revane and Nissa's Chosen is also a decent substitute card choice.

Imperious Perfect is a great elf!

Also, Doubling Chant is a card I've found helpful in elf decks since you can usually get it out turn 3/4 and double your field.

If you want your elf synergies to work, you need more elves! 20 is way too few, it will work much better with 30+. You don't need all those non-creature, non-land cards. Some of them are good, but overall you just have way too many. The ones i like the least are Attune with Aether, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Vines of the Recluse and Golden Urn.
I would add a lot of 1cmc elves, like 4 of each Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic. They might be unexciting, but help you being explosive by accelerating your mana. You could also add Elvish Archdruid, Dwynen's Elite, Elvish Champion, Imperious Perfect and Ezuri, Renegade Leader.

Joraga Warcaller would be a 3/3 with Metallic Mimic on the board and kicked once for a total of 3 mana, giving every other Elf +2/+2. That would make Imperious Perfect a 4/4 that produces 5/5 elves for 1 mana. With Ezuri, Renegade Leader in the deck, it gets even more dangerous. That would make Metallic Mimic your 2 drop, Joraga Warcaller your 3 drop, then Ezuri, Renegade Leader or Imperious Perfect an excellent choice on turn 3 or 4 depending on your ramp maybe even earlier. You also don't even have to kick Joraga Warcaller if you have Metallic Mimic on the board. It's a 1 cost 2/2 that gives +1/+1 to other elves that way too.

It works well in the deck that I have been running, its Elfpocalypse 2.0 on my profile. It's nowhere near as polished as this deck, but that main combo becomes quite the terror for opponents.

Elves are my favorite tribal in Magic, this is a great Elf deck you've made here. One suggestion I could make, add Metallic Mimic into the deck. It's free +1/+1 counters for your other Elves, most importantly Joraga Warcaller. You could even bump up to three Joraga Warcallers if you decide you like the idea. Mixed with Imperious Perfect that's 5/5 Elves you could produce with her. Just a thought. +1

Thanks emrakulinsmugglers, if you saw my most recent update post I've been planning on taking out Nissa Revane. You do have a point with Scavenging Ooze though. I'd like to get a third Collected Company in main, but since I don't have one yet for now I'll use a Lead the Stampede, and also go to 4 Shaman of the Pack (and swap a forest for a swamp to account for the reduction in green mama costs and the increase in black mana costs). Adding a fourth Elvish Archdruid might be helpful, but I usually don't have any issues with mana ramp - Archdruid gets better as the board fills and at that point I'm likely not having trouble producing green mana, if anything I would need more cards in hand, or black mana (remember you're playing mono green so Archdruid is more relevant for you). Perhaps trading an Imperious Perfect for an Archdruid will be better to my liking, but for now I think I'll keep them each at 3 of. I moved Ooze to sideboard, as well as Nissa but whether she stays there or not is uncertain.
