Llanowar Elves Discussion
1 hour ago
You bet! Please let us all know what you end up on!
By the way, I'd like to +1 WizardOfTheNorthernCoast's comment about Ponza. You want Land Destruction and ramp, followed by "unplayable" fatties? Then Ponza is your deck for sure. I think Competitive RG Ponza On A Budget is a pretty solid budget list, and you could drive the price down more by subbing Llanowar Elves or maybe Lands for the Birds of Paradise and your four-drop of choice (e.g., Chameleon Colossus/Pia and Kiran Nalaar/Obstinate Baloth) for the Thrun, the Last Troll. The upgrade path is just to More Ponza ... some competitive decklists are here.
Again, welcome to Modern!

Yes you can look at your top card ANY time. Even in your opponents turn and right after your draw.
You can cast the top card if its a creature any time you could cast that creature. For normal creatures that means in your main phases. Doesnt matter if its the first or second main phase. Yeva, Nature's Herald for example could be cast an an instant from top, opposed to a Leatherback Baloth, who doesnt have flash(unless you got a yeva or something that gives flash in play.
Your lands produce still the same mana, but you can use it as though it were mana of any color, for creatures. E.g. you can cast a Llanowar Elves with .
you may also cast several creatures from top if you got the manas.

So there are a lot of different things that you can do to make this better, and the first is deciding on a theme. Decks tend to run better when all of the cards in them are to hit a certain goal. You have too many floating around (lifegain, counters, midrange, trample, mill, etc). Pick one or two that would work best together, and then choose your cards.
Then, you should cut some cards out. A good goal is to have under 20 -different- cards. I recommend trying to stick to around 15 or 16 though. Try having a full set of the most important features of your deck and stay at the 60 card minimum. It makes your deck far more consistent
With a deck like this that has so many cards that require 4+ mana, you'll want more than just land. I recommend adding something like Cryptolith Rite, Llanowar Elves or Sakura-Tribe Scout. Without adding ramp, you'll have to wait until turn seven or eight until you can have the seven mana to cast Sifter Wurm. You'll also want to avoid adding lands that are tapped unless necessary. The effects that they have are useful, but having them slows you down. Find a balance.
Personally, if this were my deck, I would add a splash of white deck so that I could base it around Concerted Effort. Not only would I have a strong mana pool from the green ramp, but I would also have the range of effects from the powerful green creatures. Doing something like this is an excuse to have a ton of different concepts throughout the deck. You just have to be smart about it.

Any ramp that's in Potential Cuts is with the thinking that you can find more efficient ramp spells in Green. And I'm not certain how to value equipment yet, so I'm looking at the ones that seem weakest.
Potential Includes:- Eternal Witness- Sun Titan- Stoneforge Mystic- Birds of Paradise- Bloom Tender- Sakura-Tribe Elder- Farseek- Rampant Growth- Cultivate- Llanowar Elves- Elvish Mystic- Fyndhorn Elves- Path to Exile- Swords to Plowshares- Tooth and Nail- Chromatic Lantern- Selesnya Signet

The best mana ramp in Modern is Utopia Sprawl + Arbor Elf. Other good ramp cards are Cultivate, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Kodama's Reach. IMO you should run 4x Mystic Elves 4x Llanowar Elves and 4x Arbor Elf

At a glance, I would strongly suggest that you try to change out some of your cards for the strictly superior versions. For example, why have Vulpine Goliath or Enormous Baloth when you could have two more Terra Stompers? It isn't as if you're making any mana that isn't green. Little changes like that would not only make the deck stronger overall, but it would also make the deck a lot easier for people to glance at, see the themes you are looking for, and help improve on those.
Also, if you plan on running Leaf Gilder, I would encourage you to trade it out for Arbor Elf, Elvish Mystic, or Llanowar Elves. After all, you have plenty of big creatures to attack with, so you want to mostly use these cards to make mana. All three of those cost less to play that Leaf Gilder, so you can play them earlier and get their mana sooner or play them on the same turn as another card more easily.
