Bojuka Bog could be useful if your meta has a lot some graveyard recursion.

Vinelasher Kudzu could be fun?

Krosan Restorer and Khalni Heart Expedition and Exploration can help you ramp.

Ground Assault could be good spot removal for the deck?

Hope this helps!

Realm Seekers ?

On the infinite mana angle, I would take the land rout too - Wild Growth , Vernal Bloom and other similar effects + Krosan Restorer type untaps + any of your untap effects = an infinite loop. Has the benefit of just being mana ramp on its own.

Krosan Restorer would work fine if you have lands that generate more than 1 mana. That wasn’t included in the initial question so I didn’t address it. And I was incorrect about Selvala, Heart of the Wilds being usable since Lili can only get non-legendary creatures.

A Crypt of Agadeem would work nicely in the event you wanted to get this combo going, assuming you have enough creatures in your graveyard.

And if we’re saying Gaea's Cradle is an affordable option, then a much easier infinite combo for Muldrotha would be to use Lion's Eye Diamond , Animate Dead / Necromancy , and Phantasmal Image .

A budget combo could be Palinchron + Phantasmal Image + Animate Dead + Dance of the Dead + a sac outlet

Let's see if I've got your initial plan right.

Assuming Thousand-Year Elixir is on the battlefield, allowing you to activate creature abilities the turn they ETB.

  1. Activate Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for some number of mana equal to the greatest power you have on the board (if with Muldrotha, that'd be 6). Or use Krosan Restorer to untap 1 or 3 lands (depending on if you have threshold), where at least one of those lands taps for more than 1 mana.

  2. Activate Ashnod's Altar , sacrificing Selvala or Restorer. Gain , trigger Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip to flip.

  3. Activate Liliana, Defiant Necromancer 's -X ability, targeting your newly-dead mana creature. Here's the first hangup. The -X ability says "nonlegendary creature card," and Selvala is legendary, so she can't work in this interaction. So it has to be Restorer. This activation puts Liliana in the graveyard due to lack of loyalty.

  4. You didn't mention it, but presumably you activate Krosan Restorer again for mana, then sacrifice it to Ashnod's Altar for 2 more. I'm ignoring Selvala now because Liliana can't get her back.

  5. Cast Animate Dead or Necromancy on a clone creature and have it copy Muldrotha, the Gravetide , forcing you to sacrifice one due to the legend rule. You keep the clone and send the original Muldrotha to the graveyard.

  6. Using Muldrotha, the Gravetide 's ability, you cast Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip from the graveyard. Then you cast a second Animate Dead or Necromancy (because the first is still enchanting your Muldrotha clone), getting the original Muldrotha back from the graveyard, triggering the legend rule again, which flips Liliana again. You keep the original Muldrotha to "reset" the "one permanent of each type" restriction.

  7. You -X Liliana to get Restorer back, putting Liliana back in the graveyard. Go to step 4, alternating Muldrotha and clone as necessary.

Am I reading this right?

In order for this to work, you can't use Selvala, Heart of the Wilds because it's legendary and Liliana, Defiant Necromancer specifically targets nonlegendary creature cards. For Krosan Restorer to be a good fit, you'll probably want to be at threshold (to hit three lands instead of one), and you'll want those lands to produce lots of mana, like the Gaea's Cradle and Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun you mentioned later, with enough creatures to make it functional.

With so many moving parts, it runs the risk of being extremely easy to disrupt if your opponents have answers, but as far as I can see it functions aside from Selvala being a bad fit, assuming your lands are producing enough mana (and it should be mentioned that the aforementioned choice lands only produce green mana; you're going to need lots of black as well because Liliana and Animate/Necromancy is going to be alone, with a fourth if you have to cast both enchantments before you can get mana on the loop again.

Missed the threshold part of Krosan Restorer . Assuming it’s active throughout, your generate an initial , and repeating everything I said about, you’d have to pay a total of ( Animate Dead , Necromancy , Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip), resulting in still a deficit of mana.

I'm trying to create infinite mana with Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Ashnod's Altar + Thousand-Year Elixir / Lightning Greaves + Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip + Selvala, Heart of the Wilds / Krosan Restorer ( + Animate Dead / Necromancy and Clever Impersonator / Phyrexian Metamorph / Evil Twin in the graveyard)

How it works: Activate Selvala/Restorer's mana ability with the help of Greaves/Elixir, activate Altar targeting Selvala/Restorer (which causes Liliana to flip), activate Liliana targeting Selvala/Restorer, cast Animate/Necromancy targeting Impersonator/Metamorph (targeting Muldrotha, then keep the cloned Muldrotha), cast Liliana with Muldrotha, cast Animate/Necromancy with Muldrotha (targeting Muldrotha, keeping the real Muldrotha), repeat.

Argothian Elder goes infinite with Maze of Ith during combat, or Wirewood Lodge + either Nykthos or Cradle outside of combat.

Elvish Guidance turns any land into a Cradle, which goes great with Arbor Elf .

Copperhorn Scout gives a mana boost mid-combat, allowing you to drop a surprise Craterhoof Behemoth .

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves can be held in the hand until the moment someone tries to kill your elves, then dropped at instant speed to counter the spell/ability. Note that this shuts off Wirewood Lodge so Temur Sabertooth can be necessary to get him back off the field. Heroic Intervention provides a similar effect for the same cost, but only once (unless you have ewit shenanigans ready).

Elvish Harbinger is one of the best tutors going for elfball decks.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader is another infinite mana outlet that wins games.

Heritage Druid gives you the ability to tap elves for mana on the turn they come down, and pairs up with Lys Alana Huntmaster really well.

Joraga Warcaller can be played early as a minor lord to keep your weenies alives, then bounced and re-played later when you have a surplus of mana.

Krosan Restorer is a far better version of Voyaging Satyr even though it costs 1 more.

Loaming Shaman is great grave-hate that can also double up as recursion if you've got the draw engine started.

Nullmage Shepherd will make artifact / enchantment based decks scoop on the spot.

Patron of the Orochi untaps itself every turn along with every other creature you control (but also every green creature and forest at the table).

Realm Seekers often comes down as a huge beater, and tutors up any land at instant speed.

Skyshroud Poacher will win you the game unless it is immediately removed. Best elf tutor ever printed.

Treefolk Harbinger topdecks you a forest on turn 1, also tutors up Lignify if necessary.

Ulvenwald Tracker removes nasty threats, especially in conjunction with Vigor .
