Thank you all for your comments. You are such beautiful people. Everytime I recieve a comment I learn something new, and I am so thankful for that.

Hyperalgialysis, I would love to have Prophet of Kruphix in the deck but it does not appear to be commander legal. Coiling Oracle is definatly going in the deck however, so thank you.

ComboCrazy, I do like Beast Within, however I am not willing to part with Scour from Existence, so I will run them both. Also I feel silly for forgetting Llanowar Elves, thank you very much for reminding me. I was just running Blisterpod because I knew I had like 50 of them XD

NV_1980, you have probably just introduced me to two of my new favourite cards. Elvish Piper and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir are amazing cards thank you for that. Also I was hesitant to put in All Is Dust because of my big hydras that could be killed by that spell, but I see your point that it could be necessary if they have a Darksteel Myr or something.

Finally, IAmTheWraith, thank you that zoom tuttle in my spirit animal :)

Keep those suggestions coming everybody. May you all be blessed with endless pizza!!!!!!

If you're looking for some more good mana dorks, Fyndhorn Elves and Llanowar Elves are solid options. In fact, I'd replace Blisterpod with one of those two, they're pretty strict upgrades. I'd also cut Scour from Existence in favor of Beast Within.

I would drop your land count and add in some alternate mana sources. It will allow you to have quicker starts, and make you less vulnerable to land destruction like [armageddon].

Elvish Mystic, Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, and Elves of Deep Shadow are all quite cheap and worth using. Some slightly less budget options are Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, and Carpet of Flowers. I would drop about 2 lands for every 3 alternate sources you put in.

Since you're not wanting to go the Food Chain route, some good alternate win conditions are Xenagos, God of Revels and Atarka, World Render. Both allow Prossh to one-hit a player by sacrificing all six of his tokens.

Skullmulcher, Smothering Abomination, and Shamanic Revelation are all good sources of card advantage that play off Prossh's strategy.

Other budget goodstuff cards to have: Caustic Caterpillar, Vandalblast,Nature's Claim, Regrowth, Llanowar Wastes.

CUTS: Deepfire Elemental, Walker of the Grove, Charnelhoard Wurm, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper (most of your creatures will be tokens), Ogre Slumlord, Burn at the Stake, Acidic Slime, Hunted Troll, Deathrender.

Your average cmc is awfully high. Your deck will play smoother if you reduce the number of cards with cmc >5 slightly in favor of a couple of cheap cards like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Nature's Lore, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds etc. Those cards might be less exciting, but they help make your other cards work. Aim for an average cmc below 4 if possible.

Also You have a birds of paradise but you dont have any of the other cheaper 1 drop mana rampers? 39 lands is a lot. One land could be Wild Growth. Another could be Crystalline Crawler that should be in every aatraxa deck I think. Your 1/3rd green so adding an Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves seems good. You also can run alot of cheap 2 drop rocks. You have 4 colors add the signets. All of them, seriously they are the best rocks for the price. Also White super friends usually = Oath of Gideon.

You really only need 32-34 lands unless your curve is busted to all hell and yours looks pretty good. The lands that enter tapped are un-ideal but if your playing casual it works. You need some ramp though man. Rampant Growth and Crop Rotation are good if you need a color your missing.

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.
