Llanowar Elves Discussion

Wait, so it's only junk post sideboard? And even then, only one card contains black. So why is this technically called Junk? Idk, but that's just how I feel about it.
If you are going to try it, I would highly suggest adding cards like Temple Garden or Godless Shrine main board since a lot of your sideboard contains white. Either that or have those lands in your sideboard so you can switch them out when needed.
Now, I feel like having both Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic is a bit of an overkill seeing how you have the Heritage Druids as well. I would suggest taking out either the Mystics or the Llanowar and replace them with either Elves of Deep Shadow for the Shaman of the Packs or cards like Path to Exile for spot removal, but that's just my opinion.
Now, these are just suggestions. I'm not much of a modern player, but I have been dabbling in it as of late and I think I'm getting the feel for some of the different archetypes that it has to offer. In the end though, it's up to you. Hope these help. :)

Well, in my opinion you lost the game right when he played Dark Ritual, this made he's deck grow very fast and he had one of the main threats in the table. I think you had a good hand for response, but a poor hand in ramp, so in the mid game you weren't able to react.
I believe it's the same problem, the deck got too fast for you and that made you lose the game.
So, my thoughts are: your cmc curve is too high, and you want to counter the opponent and still build a wall and aggressive game. So, I know this card is worst than Cariatad, but I think it will be better for you, Llanowar Elves, Birds would be better, but I know that you have a set in use, so the elves would be better for a 1T drop, and a better ramp for you.
As for cards that I think you should remove:- Experiment Kraj - it's too expensive and by the time you play it you should already have some answers is the field;- Master Biomancer - for what I saw of your game, this card didn't brought much to the game and was a dead draw;- Zameck Guildmage - it's a card that in my oppinion isn't great to you and you have better options.- the blcak cards keep seem to be filling some essential slots and they don't bring much advantage to you, so I would remove them.
As cards to add:- Spell Pierce is a good counter for 1T, it counters Dark Ritual right away, and would have bought you 2 turns;- Harmonize for draw power, or Treasure Cruise- Snap to time walk your opponent- Garruk Wildspeaker is another great card, since it allows you to play your spells and still have lands to counter in the opponent's turn. Plus, if you don't have to counter, just throw a 3/3 beast.
These are my thoughts, but tell me what do you think and your feedback.

People not running Genesis Wave are killing me.. Since everything is not cast, and only "put" on the battlefied, blue can't counter the creatures coming unless they counter the Genesis Wave itself, and having more lands and less in the deck is always good.. And hitting Craterhoof Behemoth or Ezuri, Renegade Leader on a x=8 Genesis Wave is almost win-con by itself..
In my testing with a small program I found, I'm almost undefeated with this deck, unless I really got a bad hand.. Worst Matchups are for me decks having heavy removal or a faster clock than me
What do you think about running something like Asceticism against heavy spot removal decks?
Do you have any Idea for a mono green sideboard???

Genenis of Collected Elves looks good metalemmanuel! It's straight forward and takes advantage of great elves, the best card advantage in the archetype (in Genesis Wave and Collected Company) and killer win-cons. You could switch out Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic for Arbor Elf but you certainly don't have to. Looks good. Thanks for the kind words and the +1 as well!

Yup, there are always some tough choices to make.
If you can't have the birds, Sylvan Caryatid can be a good replacement, however, instead of 4x of them, I would run maybe only 2 and the other 2 would be Llanowar Elves, just because is a 1T mana dork.
A land that you should also consider is Temple of Mystery. It's a dual land and has the scy ability.
Another thing that I remembered about the lands, you have Kiora's Follower, this creature not only is good for control, but it untaps your own lands too, so it's a another good engine for mana generation. I think I would put 2 more.

I can see your point and the Tradewind would go weel along with Prophet. However, that is a late game and by that time, it will be hard to remove an entire table, so I don't think it would be a good card for you.
Now, for the counter, you have a sweet card that I really like, Forgotten Ancient and maybe you should trow in a couple more of those. This is a great creatures and it combines pretty well with Spike Weaver and Spike Feeder for life gain.
And since you're playing , you can use that advantage and add some 1T mana dorks, like Llanowar Elves, since I don't know if you can get your hand on Birds of Paradise? That would be the best card for you.
Also, one more thing, I would move Nature's Claim to the sideboard and add some more of them. Because not every deck has artifacts or enchantments, so you can end with a dead draw on those games.

If you decide to go with Birds of Paradise at any point, you should use Lingering Souls over Triplicate Spirits. If not, just go with 4 Avacyn's Pilgrim over Llanowar Elves and lose the Sylvan Rangers Look into getting some dual lands as well. Brushland is good if you're married to having life gain in your deck. Graypelt Refuge if you don't mind the land coming into play tapped. Cut First Response and Spirit Bonds and use Intangible Virtue if you plan on relying on tokens. Regrowth over Breath of Life. You can use it for anything. I'd also cut down on the Seraph of the Masses and work in 4 Advent of the Wurm. Also, a couple Sundering Growth to guard against enchantments and artifacts. Use Oblivion Ring over Devouring Light. Maybe Swords to Plowshares if you don't mind your opponent gaining life.
I don't know. All of this is based around you streamlining down to more of a straight token deck.

Your mana curve is so high, my friend. Do you have trouble casting these big boys? If so, since you are dipped in green, perhaps some mana ramping with Elvish Mystics, Llanowar Elves, or if you want to splurge, Birds of Paradise. And if there is anything I know at all about dragons, it's that Stormbreath Dragon is an absolute headache. Food for thought.
