Llanowar Elves Discussion
5 days ago
poshakitoo, I honestly don't play Modern or Legacy because both formats are too damn expensive. It's a shame that I don't play those formats because Elves are actually competitive and have many great options. I don't play Modern, but I do follow it. This is my take on Modern Elves:
- 4x Llanowar Elves
- 4x Elvish Mystic
- 4x Heritage Druid
- 4x Nettle Sentinel
- 4x Dwynen's Elite
- 4x Elvish Visionary
- 4x Elvish Archdruid
- 4x Shaman of the Pack
- 3x Ezuri, Renegade Leader
- 4x Forest
- 1x Overgrown Tomb
- 4x Gilt-Leaf Palace
- 4x Windswept Heath
- 4x Cavern of Souls
- 1x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- 4x Collected Company
- 3x Chord of Calling
- 4x Duress
- 2x Reclamation Sage
- 1x Elvish Champion
- 2x Essence Warden
- 1x Melira, Sylvok Outcast
- 2x Scavenging Ooze
- 1x Eternal Witness
- 2x Beast Within
If I was to play Modern this is the Elf deck I would play.

If you make Dragonlord Atarka your commander and slap in some more lands and creatures this would be a decent start to a commander deck. lol
Greenweaver Druid is pretty slow to get out, Llanowar Elves or Birds of Paradise are much better. The more of each, the merrier too.Cultivate and Khalni Heart Expedition are nice, the latter works really well with the former and Harrow.
More burn cards would be good, like: Shock, Red Sun's Zenith, Fireball, or Devil's PlayBurn cards with X are seriously great in a ramp deck. They'll give you more flexibility to destroy creatures you can't in battle and let you win with direct damage.
I'd pull out Fire-Belly Changeling, Chandra's Outrage, Giant Growth, Reverberate, Claws of Valakut, Savage Punch, and Spitting Earth just because they don't seem to mesh well with what you're going for. They just kind of seem jammed in there.
Dragon Fodder and Mudbutton Torchrunner won't be a huge help because you only actually have two, maybe three, cards that take advantage of them. One of which, Skirk Prospector, doesn't have a lot to do because your other goblins do useful things that you want them on the field for doing.

- If you want to have turn 5 wins, I'd suggest taking out some lands and putting in Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf, Elvish Mystic, Avacyn's Pilgrim, maybe Steward of Valeron, or some combination of those or other mana dweebs.
- While Sandcrafter Mage is a 2/2, it only lets you bolster once, whereas Dromoka Captain (which I see on your maybeboard) is a 1/1, but you could bolster at least once, plus it has first strike.
- Also, not exactly a budget card, but Mikaeus, the Lunarch would be great, especially with Hardened Scales.

Georgez96 I think this is the deck you might be referring to correct? Golgari token sacdeck I'm not 100% sure on what your deck wants to do. Looking at it, it wants to sacrifice or send stuff to the graveyard. But you want to generate tokens? There isn't much token generators outside of your sorcery list. You need some creatures that bring stuff with them. Also the land base is a little light. And I don't see much land ramp. Your playing green, the color of ramp. Here are a few changes I would make off the bat. Kick up the land base by 2-3. I would also add Avenger of Zendikar, Llanowar Elves, maybe Grave Titan, Hornet Queen, Elves of Deep Shadow oh and a Beastmaster Ascension.
Gorgosaurusrex - I like the deck. that is a great way to build a Norin deck. Just keep bouncing him in and out and take advantage of cards that deal damage when something enters the battlefield.
I'm having problems with this not ramping hard enough. Do I need more little guys? If I'm still alive after turn 6 then this deck just goes nuts. dropping 5/5's multiple times per turn. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Just thought I'd return the favor man. Being that this is casual I'm assuming older cards and/or edh cards are viable options. I believe Elvish Archdruid is a better Priest of Titania for the +1+1 to elves. Or maybe run it in addition to it to really boost your mana. An alternate win condition with all of that ramp could be Helix Pinnacle. I'm not sure what your budget it but I saw a combo where enough ramp, casting Genesis Wave, and trying to hit Craterhoof Behemoth I thought was pretty cool. Another couple of elves I believe you should have are Taunting Elf (incredibly powerful when your elves are boosted), and Ezuri, Renegade Leader to boost your elves for the lethal attack. If you feel that maybe your deck is a little slow to start you could also add Llanowar Elves for more ramp and/or Heritage Druid. Also Elvish Visionary for draw power isn't something to laugh at.

Cards I'm thinking of adding to make this a +1/+1, Modular, Artifact-Heavy theme (idea taken from here), as well as add more ramp:
- Kuldotha Forgemaster
- Wurmcoil Engine
- Arcbound Crusher
- Arcbound Overseer
- Arcbound Ravager
- Arcbound Ravager
- Arcbound Reclaimer
- Arcbound Slith
- Arcbound Stinger
- Arcbound Worker
- Corpsejack Menace
- Fangren Marauder
- Junk Diver
- Solemn Simulacrum

It's always nice. Hangarback's got its well established benefits, and Ayli is nice for lifegain and dodging under exile removal. Against slower decks, she's just game-ending with the second ability.
The main reason for Honored Hierarch is that it taps for any color of mana, making it better than Llanowar Elves except in an all-out ramp build. Its main downfall is being worse than Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid in nearly every situation, but that can hardly be helped.

Yeah, this is a nice solid weenie deck. Cutthroat is just so nice when used well. I really really don't like the mana dorks in Standard.
For example: I recreated the Altered Ego build. Couldn't even bring myself to put in Honored Hierarch. He's less powerful than Llanowar Elves. Which, makes him a crappy common to me (I know it sounds harsh). I did concede to Beastcaller Savant. Seemed like a necessary evil.
I've noticed your Eternal Pilgrim and HairyBack Walker synergy. It looks sweet. How's it been playing? Saw you had it in your Abzan build.
