Llanowar Mentor Discussion
2 months ago
Llanowar Mentor isn't that spectacular actually, because most elf decks run 21~22 lands at the most, and are generally at 18~19. You don't draw too many lands, and mentor feeds off you topdecking horrible cards. I wouldn't add it as it is quite slow

This is a totally different take on Rhys from my first time around. I had been indiscriminate about the tokens I used in my original build. Here, I'm trying to make it more of an elf deck that is subordinated by tokens. I'm curious to see if Rhys' first activated ability can produce enough tokens to get threatening. It's definitely going to be a learning experience.
What does everyone running a Rhys elf ball deck think? Do you find you need more token production? I've got some other cards at the ready to include if needed, such as Dwynen's Elite, Hunting Triad, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Mercy Killing, Sylvan Offering. And because we've got a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck in our group, I've got Flourishing Defenses ready too.
If you're running more elf token production, what are you cutting to get those token spells in?

Putrid Imp and Basking Rootwalla are both not modern legal. They have only been printed in Torment and non-Modern-legal supplemental sets. As a replacement 1-drop, I could see Llanowar Mentor or Greenseeker.
Also, if you're interesting in running a B/G delve deck, Tasigur, the Golden Fang already has established himself as a powerful contender in modern.

Polupus: I don't use Llanowar Mentor because it only starts getting better after I've played 3 lands, as that is all I need, and that means after turn 4. that is around the time you want to be winning the game, and mentor simply does not do that. As for adding a creature to ramp into, I could include a single copy of Craterhoof Behemoth.

Tbh I'm not too familiar with the elf archetype but maybe Llanowar Mentor to get extra elves from your excess lands?
Most of the elf decks I've seen ramp into something hard to deal with so you always have things like eldrazi or Wurmcalling for the sideboard if you wanted.

yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.
