ELves are relatively easy to make good.

The key pieces to make an elves deck are Nettle Sentinel and Heritage Druid.

Some other really good options include:

Dwynen's Elite (As a 4-of)

Elvish Visionary (as a 4-0f)

Elvish Mystic/Llanowar Elves (as an 8 of)

Ezuri, Renegade Leader (as a 2-3 of)

Elvish Archdruid (as a 3-4 of)

Chord of Calling (as a 2-4 of)

Collected Company (as a 1-4 of)

Lead the Stampede (as a 0-4 of)

unless you are really stuck on Ezuri, Renegade Leader I'd suggest Craterhoof Behemoth for that slot because you could run over your opponents with less effort, also untapping Nettle Sentinel if you used them for mana to cast it

Elves are a very playable tribe, just as merfolk or humans.

But they all got one thing in common:you need the important creatures 4x.

As you play elves, that means 4x Nettle Sentinel

4x Elvish Mystic

4x Llanowar Elves

4x Heritage Druid

4x Shaman of the Pack

4x Elvish Archdruid

4x Collected Company


2x Ezuri, Renegade Leader

Thats more or less the core a modern elf deck needs to compete in current meta

Great deck! I also play lots of paper pauper and find non-Metta decks very interesting.

A few things to consider are Rancor, Might of the Masses, Nest Invader, Nettle Sentinel, Quirion Ranger, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk and Mutagenic Growth. Rancor can be used to push through with trample and get an extra 2 power in there. Might of the Masses will double your Scion of the Wilds power and toughness. Nest Invader gives your Scion of the Wild +2/+2. Nettle Sentinel is another great one drop. Quirion Ranger can get you 2 mana turn 2 if you don't have a second land and is also a one drop to boost your Scion of the Wild. Skarrgan Pit-Skulk is another one drop that can come in as a 2/2 that cant be blocked by creatures smaller than it. Lastly Mutagenic Growth is a pretty much free card that will save a creature from burn or just pump your guy just enough to go in for the kill.

Thanks for your comment on my Elves decklist! I really appreciate the suggestions and I think I will definitely upgrade to Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinels and whatnot once I get the money for it, along with Chord of Calling! :)

All the cards I think I could possibly suggest are already in your Maybeboard!

There is Devoted Druid and Cloudstone Curio if you ever want to make it a combo deck instead of stompy

Copperhorn Scout can be really good at untapping Elvish Archdruid for a lot of mana after attacking or Chord of Calling after attacking

I would suggest 1 Pendelhaven as it can allow your 1/1 dorks to be more aggressive when you need them to be.

Collected Company is obviously excellent and aside from that either Chord of Calling or Lead the Stampede should replace Nylea's Presence. Some do one or the other and some do a 2/2 or 3/1 split. Either way I think one of these should definitely be mainboard. Lead the Stampede is excellent at refilling your hand and Chord of Calling can get that 1 Ezuri you need to win on the spot. Both are powerful, though I lean more towards Chord since it allows you to play singleton hate cards you can tutor for in sideboarded games.

Joraga Warcaller is a pretty awkward card with Collected Company because you cant have it come in with counters to pump the whole team. In a Coco build I would cut it and a couple Visionaries and 1-2 Champions to make room for Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel. The most explosive starts possible with Elf decks involve Heritage Druid. Ex-

T1 Forest, Elvish Mystic

T2 Forest, tap Elvish Mystic and play Heritage Druid, tap both forest and play Dwynen's Elite, tap 3 untapped elves, play Elvish Archdruid

T3 Forest, tap 3 Forest for Ezuri, Renegade Leader, tap Elvish Archdruid for 6 , use Ezuri, Renegade Leader's overrun ability, attack for 20 with trample.

Turn 3 you can deal 20 damage, but an explosive start like that doesn't happen without Heritage Druid, its just not possible. With Nettle Sentinel you can tap it for mana using Heritage Druid cast a spell, untap the sentinel, and do it again, essentially playing out your whole hand.

Anyway, Elves are my favorite Modern tribe, I hope this helped a bit! Happy Brewing

Agree about Nettle Sentinel and Westvale Abbey  Flip.

Also, I would add Chord of Calling over Garruk. 4 Nykthos is a lot, and I would cut down to 1 or 2, if you keep any.

One cool thing is Devoted Druid, which can make infinite mana with Vizier of Remedies if you splash white, and two Devoted Druids already go infinite with Ezuri, Renegade Leader (which I like playing 3 of).

My list is here if you want more inspiration:

Hey man a friend of mine has a very similar deck of this, and he uses Nettle Sentinel for comboing with Heritage Druid. Some Elvish Visionary are also present for draw power. The main objective is to ramp as many elves as possible on battlefield and Elvish Archdruid into Ezuri, Renegade Leader to make your little budies hit like a truck. He also uses some Westvale Abbey  Flip in case of a plan B.

Nice work and good luck
