Lead the Stampede Discussion

I would disagree on getting the fetches for your deck. Part of the advantage to running BG is that you don't need ANY pain lands with a full budget. IlGuale, to add more black sources, it's common to run Blooming Marsh since it essentially ALWAYS comes in untapped.

Other really common tech for BG is to run a few Throne of the God-Pharaoh since it acts as shaman 5-X. As for why Lead the Stampede is played more than Elvish Harbinger, its that lead makes you far more explosive. When running a budget deck like this, its important to try and get in underneath the other decks that run rampant. As such, the harbinger is slower in that it doesn't draw you any cards. This is especially important with cards like Heritage Druid, since you can sometimes feel like a storm deck.

Hopefully some of that helps!

@Enral: Actually had Mana flooding and draw issues. Dropped 1x Survivors' Encampment 1x Holdout Settlement and 2x Thoughtpicker Witch for 4x Elvish Visionary. This increases Lead the Stampede consistency as well as gives another sac outlet for Primal Growth. You want to mulligan aggressively for a forest and another land.

The problem with Bloodbraid Elf in Elves is that you don't really cascade into anything exciting. Best case scenario? You hit Elvish Archdruid or Shaman of the Pack. What's more likely to happen? You cascade into Llanowar Elves/Nettle Sentinel or some other mana dork.

I'd rather use Summoner's Pact, Collected Company, Chord of Calling, Lead the Stampede, a strong artifact (Staff of Domination for instance), or a planeswalker.

I play B/G elves with a white for sideboard cards in modern and was thinking about going jund elves for Bloodbraid Elf. I was thinking of cutting Collected Company for Lead the Stampede and run four Shaman of the Pack as extra value

With both Heart Sliver and Gemhide Sliver on the battlefield you can often play 3-4 creatures in a turn following a good Lead the Stampede. I don't think this version is much slower than a typical GW version of the deck and I think its much more powerful.

Do you have suggestions for fixing the mana base? I think 6/23 lands entering tapped isn't bad. I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

I really dig the idea, the fact that it could grab Lead the Stampede is really powerful. But alas, it would be disappointing to cast her only to use her cascade ability to pull a Llanowar Elves. I still think this has potential though.

IlGuale on Sideboard for the poorest elves

Thanks everybody. About graveyard hate, i am looking for a creature so i won't reduce my threat density and i won't riks to shuffle it away with Lead the Stampede ecc. So far, i found no elf with that sort of ability on gatherer and the only creatures i deem good enough are Scavenging Ooze and Loaming Shaman, but they're still no tutor target.

Yeah you're probably right. The idea is that it's basically CoCo 5 and 6, with the added benefit of being able to hit Lead the Stampede off it. The splash seems pretty easy with 8 5-color lands, and the card is powerful enough that I think it's worth trying, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's not worth it.
