Lys Alana Huntmaster Discussion

Jagged-Scar Archers performed quite well shooting down Kaalia of the Vast last night, so it remains in the deck for now. But I strongly consider Fierce Empath instead of Lys Alana Huntmaster. Huntmaster is a bit slow and you paint a huge target on your back by overextending to the board. Fierce Empath on the other hand gives you a good draw for next turn and with fierce into Woodland Bellower you are even able to tutor for a relevant elf. I am going to playtest with Silklash Spider but at that point I am not sure which card I should cut

Sweet deck! I really love to see Ezuri being built as anything other than just plain goodstuff, even though that's how I'm currently running it myself. I'm a huge fan of some of the inclusions in here, including Uncage the Menagerie (I love that card), Hurricane (having a noncombat finisher is sweet), and Throne of the God-Pharaoh.
I built a much more combo-centric Ezuri elfball list a while back, and while your deck is obviously much more focused on elf synergies, I think there are some cards from my deck that could have a place in yours. Intruder Alarm is an incredibly powerful effect, letting you generate mana off of your dorks very efficiently. It's especially good in combination with Lys Alana Huntmaster and the next card I'm going to mention, untapping your board twice for every elf you play. Wirewood Hivemaster is an additional way to generate tokens off of elves you play, and while they are not elves, it can help you generate experience counters quickly. Finally, I'm not sure if you're purposely trying to avoid infinite combos (with the exception of Sage of Hours), but Temur Sabertooth is one of the most powerful cards for going infinite in an elfball deck. With haste, you can bounce your big mana elves to generate infinite mana, and once you have infinite mana, it gives you a sink for it, letting you draw your deck, generate infinite experience counters for a lethal Walking Ballista, or whatever else your heart desires. Here's my combo elfball for reference: Ezuri Elfball

I'd recommend running Elvish Visionary and Titania's Chosen somewhere in there, probably take out the Vizier of the Menagerie and/or a Bow of Nylea and/or a couple Presence of Gond's. Also, I recommend adding Lys Alana Huntmaster and Harmonize for extra fuel. Add Umbral Mantle for infinite mana.

You asked for cuts to add new cards, I recommend these:
- Panharmonicon - fun card but you actually have very few payoffs for it.
- Lys Alana Huntmaster - deck's not tribal enough to really do that much token making, so I'm not sure its worth it to run. There are better token making cards if you really want a token machine.
- Frontline Medic - it was an underwhelming card in games for me when I tried it ever.
- Shield of the Oversoul - meh, I'm not usually a fan of this kind of protection...since its only effective against "destroy" it's far less reliable than hexproof usually. I think I like Shalai, Voice of Plenty better personally because it's more threatening. If your board gets wiped a lot it might be worth keeping Shield in though.
I would not cut Dragonlord Dromoka!! She is a much bigger pain in the ass than Grand Abolisher because she is so big, even though she doesn't stop activated abilities like the Abolisher does...if anything find room for both. They are both very strong cards.
Here is my Selvala deck, maybe it has other ideas for you:

(tl;dr at the bottom) so my bestest friends gave me a copy of Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (they must be kind of masochistic), Marwyn, the Nurturer, Seedborn Muse and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.
But the problem is, I don't know which 3 cards I should take out of my Selvala, Explorer Returned deck. Please see the description in the link for how the deck works. My meta is quite casual, but not very janky. The games usually end after turn 10, we have almost no combo decks.
First of all: Do you think, that I shouldn't take any of those 4 cards into my deck?
I was thinking of Primordial Sage, because I don't cast every creature I put into play and I have Soul of the Harvest and my Commander. I don't really have card draw problems. So maybe I could cut it for Vorinclex.
The second card I was thinking of taking out is Frontline Medic. I never used the second ability (counter target spell with X, unless opponent pays additional 3). And it must attack with at least two other creatures. The two other creatures part isn't the problem most of the times, but that it has to attack is sometimes a problem. I only have two haste enabler and usually I don't attack anyway. When I attack, I do it to close the game or to finish someone off. And if I do, I rarely need it. And I have Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant and other ways of making my creatures indestructible.
And I can't decide, whether I should exchange Dragonlord Dromoka with Grand Abolisher. I don't really need the flying part of Dromoka and the lifegain is sweet but the main reason I have it in my deck is to prevent things like AEtherize, when I go for the kill. I have Abeyance for the same reason. I usually finish the game with Triumph of the Hordes and Overwhelming Stampede. So I need 10-11 mana with Dromoka and 6-7 mana with Grand Abolisher.
Oh and I would be thankful for general advice like "this card would be better than this card". My budget is rather tight though (I don't like to spend more than 10$ on a card).
Thanks in advance for your help =)
tl;dr: I want to put Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Seedborn Muse and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds into this Deck but I don't know what cards to take out.

Also, I can produce an infinite amount of wolf tokens via Lys Alana Huntmaster. I'm looking for similar things to do with infinite mana, without deviating away from the elf tribal.
