Ah, what a rookie mistake!

That's some good advice, thanks.

I don't want to drop too much cash on this, but Gideon's Avenger and Sunblast Angel from your deck look like they'd be useful.

Deathbringer Liege may work if I chuck in a couple of cheap black instants to support it, like Midnight Charm and Rathi Trapper , or simply Terror . It might be wise to ditch the 2x Frost Titan for the sake of the mana curve and to accommodate black / white creatures instead.

I guess if I wanted to make something based on the Scythe then Deathtouch and forced blocking would be the way to go, and/or creatures that have abilities to deal damage like Jagged-Scar Archers , Femeref Archers , or Tahngarth, Talruum Hero (or any number of red creatures). Totally different deck, but it's something to work on.

Thanks for comments Apollo_Paladin , appreciate it.

  1. I'm not big fan of Ambush Commander , as you said he is kinda mana heavy. He might be ok for sideboard to get with Living Wish but i cant think of case when i would want to search him.

  2. Jagged-Scar Archers sure should be in sideboard to deal with flying creatures. About Wirewood Pride , maybe. I personally rather have more elf's and faster ramp.

  3. Totally agree with Throne of the God-Pharaoh , i will add one to my deck.

  4. I think i have card draw handled, you suggested Sylvan Messenger , i have similar effect Lead the Stampede i was considering messengers but chose stampede instead because i have some non-elf creatures. And about Vanquisher's Banner instead i have Beast Whisperer , i think either will work but i prefer elf instead of artifact.

  1. Ambush Commander isn't terribly expensive dollar-wise (just over a buck last I knew), but he's a little heavy on mana cost. That's generally not an issue for an elf deck, particularly because I see you're running Priest of Titania and a bunch of other mana producers along with Vitalize which is one of my favorite cards ever in my elf deck.

  2. Jagged-Scar Archers is a good way to deal with flying, even if you just sideboard a couple ultimately, and Wirewood Pride is a very mana-efficient way to ramp up your damage early, or provide a surprise blocker for a big creature out of one of your 1/1's.

  3. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is an excellent and cheap way to add an alternate win condition to an elf deck; it's done stellar in mine since you can just tap your 1/1's for mana to deal damage rather than have them attack (even if you don't need to spend it).

  4. The only other thing I can suggest is some card-draw. Elf decks of this nature tend to speed through their hand fairly quickly. I use Sylvan Messenger and Vanquisher's Banner personally.

  5. You can check out my Legacy Elf deck entitled "Tae'rin Terror (Elf Zerg)" if you want some other neat options for elf synergy. It's not a "budget" deck, but there's no card in there over 6 or 7 dollars. Also, there are so many good elf cards that it's impossible to make determinations on the "best" for many cases, but I've had mine going for quite a few years now and it's continued to speed up. All about that Elf Count for the real craziness, imo. Hope this helps, giving a +1 on this deck either way just for using Vitalize ; that's one of the more overlooked ones it seems and I've been able to recommend that to quite a few elf decks in the past. Way to be on top of it!

Jagged-Scar Archers performed quite well shooting down Kaalia of the Vast last night, so it remains in the deck for now. But I strongly consider Fierce Empath instead of Lys Alana Huntmaster. Huntmaster is a bit slow and you paint a huge target on your back by overextending to the board. Fierce Empath on the other hand gives you a good draw for next turn and with fierce into Woodland Bellower you are even able to tutor for a relevant elf. I am going to playtest with Silklash Spider but at that point I am not sure which card I should cut

justnthrguy thank you for your suggestions! I am running Whirlwind mostly because of Kaalia of the Vast or The Ur-Dragon decks in my playgroup. At 4 mana it is kind of efficient to deal with a lot of flyers at once were Hurricane seems to do too much damage to myself without Wellwisher on the board.

You are right about Jagged-Scar Archers! It feels kinda clunky most of the times and even with a tutor effect in hand I am not going for that card. Same for Wellwisher. Both feel like filler cards to me.

Do you think Devoted Druid is worth to include even without a combo? Or maybe Fierce Empath to replace Wellwisher and Jagged-Scar Archers?

I am playing with Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip for fun, but most of the time it is a worth Sylvan Ranger. When I get to seven lands (without Genesis Wave) in play something must gone horribly wrong for me and Nissa won't cut it for me anyways. Farhaven Elf will probably replace her soon!

Tribal Unity is another good finisher card, and Jagged-Scar Archers is a fantastic way to deal with flying creatures w/o having to add flying elves or Reach abilities.
