I know it's rather expensive money-wise, but Collected Company is an extremely powerful card, and Chord of Calling is not half bad either. I'd definitely recommend cutting the Broken Bonds for Llanowar Elves, the Titanic Growths for Elvish Mystics, and the Rancors and Retreat to Kazandus for Lead the Stampedes, though. These cards are pretty darn good in elf decks, and are all pretty cheap.

Looks more GB than Jund. I see a splash of red for Blood Moon, but that will almost take you off of black. If your going to attempt that maybe go 4x Elves of Deep Shadow to have better chance on the black for Shaman. I feel like that would be better if you went mono G and splashed Red for moon. You turn off most of your lands also with your current land base.

Not sure if the moon is worth it though. Going with Blood Moon on the double red is a bit more annoying with the 17 - 18 land deck since your now really able to use Unclaimed Territory or Cavern to make it easier like it is with using them for BloodBraid Elf to get the red.

Also why no Lead the Stampede or Chord of Calling in main or side? I can see not main if super fast meta, but being able to rebuild with lead helps.

Hello itachi45!! Thank you for your time on my post.

Let's see if I can offer some suggestions. I have yet to design a Modern dino deck but I've had a few thoughts on it. I love the start of what you're creating. I'm aware some things are pretty expensive. I do not know your budget.

My first thought is the card Tilonalli's Crown. This card triggers any Enrage you have. But the biggest trigger. Is Siegehorn Ceratops. Instantly making him a big threat.

Second, is Collected Company With a creature heavy deck you can utilize this greatly. Lead the Stampede is a Budget version

Rampaging Ferocidon is banned in standard. But, in modern. All yours. Protects you from lifegain decks, and hurts people that focus on generating tokens Carnage Tyrant protects you from control decks. Ghalta, Primal Hunger Easy powerhouse.

Cavern of Souls also protects you from control. As well as gives you whatever Mana you need.

I may design a deck very soon. That's like this. If you would like. I will gladly contact you and we can share thoughts.

Gotta agree with @IlGuale's suggestions of running the same list as Jeff Hoogland, I play Elves as well, and I've found Jeff's list to be the most consistently good.

The main reason for Elves of Deep Shadow is that Nettle Sentinel only helps your nut draw, and doesn't do much of anything useful other games. Your nut draw is already good enough to win 9/10 times, and having more mana dorks helps you to be much more consistent in the hands you can keep.

As for Lead the Stampede over Chord of Calling and Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Chord is kinda mediocre in this deck, as we don't generally care which little green men we find, just that we have lots of them. Ezuri is fine as a two-of, but three will mean you're more likely to find multiples off Collected Company and Lead the Stampede, making them worse. Lead the Stampede is just more efficient, usually getting at least 3 dorks for 1 card.

The reason you want more two or three for ones is because the hardest thing for elves to beat is board wipes. Lead helps to beat a board wipe or two much more than Chord

I would add in some mana dorks like Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic to ramp faster as-well as some card advantage like Lead the Stampede.

Icbrgr on Rec-Sage becoming obsolete?

Outside of Mana restrictions the only reason for Reclamation Sage being a "better" pick that comes to mind is it's an Elf that elf decks can hit with Collected Company/Lead the Stampede.

Any reason why you're playing Impulse over Lead the Stampede? It's pauper legal and an incredible card. Also why do you only have 10 cards in your side board? You REALLY need graveyard hate and some tools for grindy matches.

+1! I like the list, do you think some card draw and filtering could fit? Lead the Stampede/Lifecrafter's Bestiary would be the type of card that I'd like to see here.
