Lys Alana Scarblade Discussion

@LordTsukune there are a few black elves; like Gilt-Leaf Winnower, Hunter of Eyeblights, Lys Alana Scarblade, Maralen of the Mornsong, Ayara, First of Locthwain, Blightsoil Druid, etc. I guess I just didn't think they were worth it. I'll take your opinion on the matter tho
Sunbird's Invocation and Stolen Strategy are good generic red gas. They can go in most any red deck, for sure. If you look at my land base you can see that I'm relying heavily on green since that's elves' most dominant color, but I'm splashing all other colors for support. If I did add them, what would you suggest to come out?
I do actually have Fist of Suns in here, so I'll do some updating this morning to match my irl list.
Thanks for the comment! I upvoted some of your decks in return! Don't forget to upvote here as well! Cheers

You're a bit light on ways to interact with your opponent. If they play something, you don't have a good way to get it off the table. Reclamation Sage is an elf that can hit artifacts and enchantments and Lys Alana Scarblade, Gilt-Leaf Winnower are elves that can deal with creatures. I'd say removal spells, Hero's Downfall, Go for the Throat etc would also be good options as they can hit more creatures than the two other elves i mentioned.

Cool deck! If you're having trouble drawing into mana dorks, I would add some more Phyrexian Arena effects: things like Greed, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Ancient Craving, Altar's Reap, Ambition's Cost, Promise of Power, ad nauseum...I'm trying to find repeatable effects like Greed that aren't super-costly, but even those sorceries should be good. The life loss isn't good, but Rhys should help you recoup that life.
As for cards to replace with any of that, I think your weakest links might be Primordial Sage, Thornbow Archer, and some of your one-use removal (it's just a tad redundant to have Putrefy when you have repeatable effects with Glissa Sunseeker and Lys Alana Scarblade, for example). I don't know...the deck is pretty well tuned, so if you want to make changes then I guess you're at that annoying point where there are no longer obvious cuts to make.
Good luck brewing!

Lys Alana Scarblade is just so slow and doesn't progress your board, it never seems worth it to cast it unless you're out of cards, and then it's useless.
