Llanowar Elves Discussion

One way you could go with this is ramp. Here are some suggestions for what a ramp deck might look like.
If you need any help, feel free to ask :)

My meta has certain restrictions for card-selection / play style, and my reasons for posting is my wish to find the most competitive cards for ramp, draw, etc, within those restrictions. My meta is a very play tempo-focused meta: No T1 GSZ, T2 Demonic Tutor and then slowing down games with Top, etc... We have little time for play and would like more play, less shuffling.
So: I can't rely on massive tutoring (or infinite combo), but need to find the best cards that make the biggest splash when played. In short: The most bang for my CMC.
My questions are:
What cards should I consider that make the biggest impact when played?
Am I missing some cards that are played/ should be played in competitive lists (except tutors and infinite combo-enablers)?
Are there cards that would give me bigger rewards in terms of relative card advantage compared to those I'm playing?
Some competitive lists run really explosive ramp with all dorks available (Elvish Pioneer, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Bloom Tender, Lotus Cobra, Birds) + Exploration, Burgeoning, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl and Sol Ring at 1CMC. Should I find more room for dorks to speed up my deck, or do I run enough ramp?
Some considerations so far: More cheap removal (Oust, Path of Exile, Pongify, Nature's Claim, Qasali Pridemage), more gravehate (Loaming Shaman, Stonecloaker (also protection)), instant flicker-effects (Momentary Blink, Ghostly Flicker, Restoration Angel), bigger draw-effects (i.e. Recurring Insight, Sphinx's Revelation), more sweepers (Wrath of God, Supreme Verdict, Cataclysm) and protection (i.e. Sylvan Safekeeper)

Hm okay :P well, for a starter deck, it's definitely something! It's not bad for casual!
I think there are a few improvements you can make to it though that are completely budget!
Second, because it's an elves deck, remove those beasts! It ruins the idea of tribal D:
Fyndhorn Elves aren't modern legal, so those should be a take out as well.
I think you should add in Elvish Promenade because it gives a lot of tokens, and it's a great budget card.
Bramblewood Paragon is extremely strong with Promenade by making all of the tokens 2/2s, so that's something to add in as well.
Bow of Nylea is also a pretty fun card for elves, so maybe you can add that in too with your extra slots :)

I'll start with lands, as they are the functional spine of your deck.
I suggest that since you're playing casually you play a playset of Mountain Valley as this card is quite good in casual settings.
I personally wouldn't play Nykthos because lel you're playing two colours.
This should allow you to more consistantly get your colours out, and for a very agreeable low price. And before you say that it costs too much, you're legit going to spend ten dollars on a manabase that will increase your deck's consistency by a billion percent.
Now for the organs. Your instants/sorceries/enchantments must properly synergize to increase your deck's flexibility and playabililty.
For this reason, I suggest you gravitate towards a theme you enjoy. As far as I can tell you really like to scry.
You must play a playset of Magma Jet. This card is insanely powerful in casual low-budget formats.
Scouring Sands appears to be a good two-of. Roast is also a two-of. But because of how many instants/sorceries in your deck, I'd play Spite of Mogis. Cut the horns.
Now you have eight sorceries. You should probably have a card to support all this scrying.
It's an enchantment. A single Knowledge and Power will allow games that go too long end quickly in your favor. Don't play the fonts, all of them are garbage. Khalni Heart Expedition is your best bet here. Play three.
So now you have four enchantments.
As for your creatures, that's something a bit more personal that you'll have to decide, but I can give you a bit of opinionated advise.
Don't play things that require heavy devotion. It's not a good idea when you play multiple colors. Two is ok, but three on the Leatherback Baloth just isn't a good idea.
A smart idea is to play two Reclamation Sage so you have some response to decks that abuse artifacts and enchantments.
Nylea is ok in this deck, actually.
A single Grazing Gladehart will allow you to gain some of your life back in shitty situations, due to your access to having multiple lands enter the battlefield in a single turn.
Perhaps two Pelakka Wurm, which is everyone's favourite green fattie.
Two Generator Servant could be a good idea, but because you don't have creature recursion I would avoid it for something better. Cyclops is huge, and haste is nice, but there are other ways to get haste.
Just pick a bunch of budget creatures you love, things will work out just fine.
If you have any questions just hmu ok?

The problem I'm having with both Utopia Sprawl and Arbor Elf would be that they both need forests. Which at my current rate would only be 9 Forests, and that's tough odds. Not automatically a T1 mana boost.
Burning-Tree Emissary is in there for devotion. It allows me the really slim chance of going T1 Stomping Ground, Llanowar Elves and T2 dropping 3 Burning-Tree Emissary, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and then either Garruk, Caller of Beasts and an Atarka with his -3 ability or any red dragon. Slim, but awesome to go off with. It also works well with Manamorphose.
So all in all, I know that this deck is nowhere close to Tier 1 decks, and I don't think it will be. But I do want an effective dragon deck, which I think needs mana ramp and at least G/R if not Jund.
