Granular_Quality, thanks for droppin' by!!

When I first built the deck all five of those were in it! lol Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Tinder Wall, Wild Cantor. I guess that the more and more I was boardwiped I took them out.

What in the deck do you think lacks integrity and should go? Something that could get replaced with a weenie? Or Earthcraft?

The biggest challenge I see with this deck is keeping from getting wiped out due to a bad draw/lack of mana for your big creatures. What about Sol Ring, the Urza lands. Maybe switch out a couple of the huge creatures for Llanowar Elves or something of the like. Consecrated Sphinx could maybe help to ensure that you get a mana out every turn, though it could force you to put a big creature or 2 in your graveyard. Just a few thoughts.

sylvannos on Top Elves without Nettle

One of the guys at my shop doesn't play any Nettle Sentinels, Heritage Druid, Shaman of the Pack, or Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip. He goes all-in on lords instead.

I'm not sure what his exact list is, but it's something like:

Creature (32)
4x Bramblewood Paragon
4x Dwynen's Elite
4x Elvish Archdruid
4x Elvish Mystic
2x Ezuri, Renegade Leader
4x Imperious Perfect
4x Joraga Warcaller
4x Llanowar Elves
4x Wren's Run Vanquisher

Land (20)
4x Wooded Foothills
7x Forest
4x Cavern of Souls
4x Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Other Spells (4)
4x Collected Company
3x Lead the Stampede

It very quickly clogs up the board with 3/3 and 4/4 elves. You can pretty much ignore Wrath of God by sandbagging Collected Company and Lead the Stampede.

This is what I would play if I were to play mono-green, non-combo Elves.

I like your plan. The deck is a great point to start at. I think you should play with it a lot to find out which are the cards you usually want to draw and put in more copies of these. while taking out cards that you usually aren't happy to draw. I'll make some suggestions that i think could fit in, based on how i think the deck plays out.

Sakura-Tribe Elder is an amazing ramp card, since you can use it to block and then sacrifice it to get a land.

Llanowar Elves is a lot better than golden hind and the druid, and if you want to spend a little more money, Birds of Paradise is cool.

You could consider to play other fatties. Mistcutter Hydra is a card i really enjoy in ramp-strategies.

I wish you a lot of fun with your deck.

Cool Deck, I just made a green eldrazi in modern :)

have you considered Eye of Ugin it was good enough to get banned in modern :)

Also some Glimmerpost would help buff your cloud posts.

Something I have found is that Voyaging Satyr normally goes better than Llanowar Elves because you can untap lands that generate more than one mana, like cloudpost

Please go and live out my dreams of playing the cards banned from my modern deck :3

If you want you could look at my deck Green Eldrazi Ramp

Hi - some advice are about to be given, but if you don't like them then, by all means, disregard - no hard feelings :-)

The deck itself seem to center around tokens and a lot of sacrifice. The land base is a little off, but I'll get back to you on that later on.

Since you're going to be sac'ing a alot of critters, I'd highly recommend Fecundity - You'll get card draw like hell. True, your opponents too, but it will not help them much since your critters pack a heavy punch AND you have Sorin Markov. Also, with Fecundity your High Market becomes: Sacrifice a creature (tokens come in handy here), make opp's sac ( Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos ), draw a card, gain 1 life.If you're still not happy with your opponents drawing cards, Underworld Dreams could be added, however it's -heavy

Your average Converted Mana Cost in the deck, is 3.45 - on that base alone, I'd suggest Unearth and if you feel like it Exhume both can be extremely powerful tools in re-animation and the politics of EDH

Along side the sacrificing, a few creatures could help you, controlling the board doing so, Bloodghast - expensive, but it just keeps coming back, even of you have a small amount of landfall triggers, also a key card to combo with Skullclamp. Nether Traitor comes in handy. If you have a large budget to spend, then Vengevine is a good choice, you could sac it, Birthing Pod it, kill it for sports and yet it will still return to serve.

If your finding a need to get more Experience Counters, then the two Proliferate machines, namely: Contagion Engine , and Contagion Clasp can help with that

Cards to maybe re-think:

Elves of Deep Shadow instead, Birds of Paradise

Elvish Pioneer you'd be better of with City of Brass

Wood Elves you haven't many shock/duals in here, I'd say, cut it for another Swamp

Llanowar Elves - a copy of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is nigh-invaluable and for a small price, you get sooo much mana

Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse for that Bloodghast recur and basic land mana-fixing

Elvish Piper can cheat your fatties in play, but it's not the strongest creature ifself.

Black Sun's Zenith serves little to no purpose, other than being a board-wipe, I'd call it 'mezzo a mezzo'

You need a few more Mana Rocks, but not much

On the Landbase: 33 lands is unfortunately a little too little. If you came from other formats, then it's understandable, but generally, a minimum of 37 to 40 lands would be ideal. Trust me, I've had an EDH deck, where 1 (!) land was needed, before it rolled out like hell xD

I really like the idea of the deck / is my favorite color-combo :-)

I hope you could use some of the pointers - if not, that's cool - just trying to help

Good luck with the deck !
