Nath of the Gilt-Leaf Discussion
1 week ago
You want much more discard, as that'll help you generate as many elves as possible with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. Certainly include Deadbridge Shaman, as it synergizes with both, but I think you want to include many more cheap, early-game discard spells, as otherwise, you're not really getting as much value out of Nath as you could be.

First up, Wellwisher isn't Modern Legal, so... you'll have to drop that one.
Second, If I could suggest anything for this deck, it would be to drop Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, and Fog. You're elves, you already have one of the best strategies against aggro decks - a ton of big creatures.
I'd replace them with Elvish Champion and Nylea's Presence, a combo that not only pumps your elves and can help ensure you get black mana, but when combined can make all your elves unblockable by enchanting an opponent's land. Maybe double down on your mana ramp and throw in some copies of Arbor Elf for the rest, or some Joraga Warcaller for something to spend all that mana on.
Also, if you chose to take the above route and have the cash, trading out Harmonize in favor of Collected Company gives you instant speed elves for free. It won't grab your new enchantment or more copies of itself, but other than that all cards worth finding it will.

Anyway... a really fun stax commander i was once considering making before i realized it wasnt fun for others is Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, check him out before putting a target on your head with Brago

I run a Nath of the Gilt-Leaf Stax deck, and I find that even if you run Meren, you still run Volrath's. Mainly because if you need to get rid of something to play everything out in your hand, you grab the card from your grave and cast. Boom, Recurring Rec. Sage. There are plenty of reason I could see cutting it, but to have redundancy especially with how much more Stifle Effects are out there now, it never hurts to have another card that does it.

Hate to break it to you, but you can't use Vraska as a commander. Only certain types of planeswalkers can be used, and will say at the bottom that it can be used as a commander.

I have a Meren deck which is my "most worked on deck", but aside from the engine of the deck slowly wearing people down, the "one turn" win-cons are all variants of Nim Deathmantle loops, making it pretty fragile if that piece gets removed.
To try and break this up, i threw in Bloodchief Ascension, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, and Sadistic Hypnotist as a way to speed up the engine, to bring people low enough to be finished off.The problem is that this is feels very "thrown in", and apart from bloodchief ascension, the other two cards are pretty "meh" on thier own.
Can anyone advise either ways to make the main "combos" more robust (assuming the deathmantle gets exiled for example) or suggest some similar loops that are on theme for a reanimation feel?
Also recommendations on cards to cut in favour of suggestions is super useful too.
- Exsanguinate To kill the table
- Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat ping everyone down while looping your dudes.
- Kokusho, the Evening Star + Nim Deathmantle /Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Nim Deathmantle balance out your mana so you can keep bringing him back

Since Damia, Sage of Stone has built-in card advantage, I wanted to avoid slotting in card draw for myself and focus on creating card disadvantage for my opponents.
Basically, my deck will be divided into five parts: lands, ramp, card disadvantage, disruption/removal, and synergistic win-cons (mill, mass recursion, etc.)
I already have a variety of different discard cards in my possession, but since this isn't a hellbent deck, and I don't want to dedicate a large percentage of my deck to recursion, I'm thinking that cards like Necrogen Mists and Words of Waste would be better suited to the task than cards like Mindslicer. I know that Damia, Sage of Stone will replenish my hand, but I don't want to lose a much-needed card.

Thanks for the suggestion! I might play test cutting one then the other for Hymn to Tourach. I need to see if have land/mana-ramp issues, since the focus of the deck is playing Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. If this weren't a casual deck I would just cut green and elves from it entirely :)
