Maralen of the Mornsong Discussion

Spirits on Kaalia of the NotFinishedYet

3 days ago

I play Kaalia of the Vast as my commander as well. I like Angel of Serenity. Lots of people play Angel of Despair as well.

Since you play Stranglehold I use a combo with Maralen of the Mornsong, Prevents opponents draw step. I search for Baneslayer Angel or Whip of Erebos to offset the life loss. She also has synergy with Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

I really like Ghostway, I use Boros Charm to do the same board protection, but I find it more modular and 1 less CMC.

I have some Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos in my deck listed in the description and maybeboard you may find interesting.

+1 control kaalia! Kaalia, the Purifier EDH

This is a life gain deck for commander. I'd very much recommend Felidar Sovereign and Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant just to screw with your friends!

For some other suggestions: Killing Wave, Masako the Humorless, Maralen of the Mornsong, Crawlspace, and I suppose some other goodies! There's plently of fun cards

Karzalar on Gotta love elves or at least I do

That deck feels like it's just starting, and that it's kind of budget? If not, there's a lot of cards i'd cut (if you do not know what to change for those in the maybeboard), like ;


  • Advocate of the Beast

  • Centaur's Herald

  • Charging Badger

  • Eyeblight Assassin

  • Kozilek's Channeler

  • Skysnare Spider

  • Tajuru Beastmaster

  • Tajuru Stalwart

  • Territorial Baloth


  • All instants (exception made of Second Harvest and Naturalize)


  • All sorceries (exception made of Duress, Explore, Root Out, Disentomb and maybe Mental Vapors)

Now, what to add to replace all that?

Let's start with ;


Nissa Revane

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury

Garruk Wildspeaker

Garruk, Apex Predator

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Creatures (they are all elves!)

Beastcaller Savant

Bramblewood Paragon

Caller of the Claw

Drove of Elves

Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves --> (I think it's legal to play)

Elvish Champion

Elvish Harbinger

Elvish Piper --> To get your threats on the battlefield at opponent's end of turn

Fauna Shaman --> To get those threats from your deck

Fyndhorn Elves --> Mythic mana rock!

Gaea's Herald --> Anti-counterspell


Gempalm Strider

Glissa Sunseeker

Heedless One

Heritage Druid

Jagged-Scar Archers --> to kill flyers

Korozda Guildmage

Llanowar Mentor ---> In case you topdeck too many lands, this is useful

Maralen of the Mornsong --> Useful since your deck has a low average mana cost

Masked Admirers

Nullmage Shepherd --> Reusable destroy artifact/enchantment

Oak Street Innkeeper --> Protection!

Oracle of Mul Daya --> Filtering, getting more mana in

Primal Forcemage --> Those tokens get better!

Realm Seekers --> Deck filtering, getting more mana, or just a big creature.

Reclamation Sage --> You NEED one.

Sylvan Advocate --> Most of the time, a 4/5 vigilance for 2 mana.

Sylvan Messenger --> Play an Elf, get more elves!

Talara's Battalion --> Easy to get on the battlefield.

Timberwatch Elf --> Another elf gets HUGE.

Titania's Chosen

Twinblade Slasher

Viridian Shaman

Viridian Zealot

Voice of the Woods --> If your small elves can't get past... get bigger creatures.

Wolf-Skull Shaman --> Get tokens in!

Wren's Run Vanquisher --> 3/3 deathtouch for 2.


Krosan Grip --> A better, uncounterable Naturalize.

Beast Within --> Remove a threat for the board.

Back to Nature --> Since you do not run a lot of enchantments.

Collected Company --> Get 3 elves on the battlefield.

Consign to Dust --> Destroy some artifacts or enchantments.

Fresh Meat --> Board got wiped? Not quite.

Hunter's Insight --> Draw cards!

Noxious Revival --> Cast for 0 mana.


Genesis Wave --> Because getting out half your library when you have tons of mana to spend is awesome.

Overrun --> Major boost.


Akroma's Memorial --> Now, all your elves are monsters.


Doubling Season --> Double your tokens and planeswalker loyalty counters.

Parallel Lives --> Another token doubler. Makes it 4x with doubling season out.

That's my first batch of suggestions to you. Hope it'll help!
