Redivert on $50 Competitive Mono-Green Aggro

Your deck is very good and is really similar to something I made a while back, check this out and compare.Mono Green StompyYou need to take out your Dismember's, Nettle Sentinel's and put in some Oran-Rief, the Vastwood's, and Experiment One's.

You should use your Oran-Rief with Experiment One to generate double tokens as he comes back into play and keep him alive this way. This land should be a basis around pretty much everything you're playing, it's a must have.

ellie-is on Mutagenic Growth in RDW?

Sadly bolt hasn't dropped much with the reprint. Cards like Nettle Sentinel fell from ~5 dollars to ~80 cents, but Lightning Bolt's drop was only one dollar from it's previous four-dollar cost. $12 for a set is still a bit much for me at the moment (it is, in fact, the entire cost of the rest of the deck, hah).

I like Magma Jet a lot. I own a set of that, so I might play around with it a bit and see how it goes! But at two mana I worry it's a bit slow for this deck. If anything, I at least still have the scry from Titan's Strength.

While the combo might seem fragile, it's actually very resilient thanks to the utility of "dork chaining". Since we're able to generate mana and tutor any pieces that we need, it allows us to run compact and efficient backup plans.

For example, our primary recursion package consists of Nantuko Tracer, Riftsweeper, and Scavenging Ooze. This means that if we run into almost all forms of interaction, we're able to tutor and cast a recursion spell for very little additional cost, and continue comboing off. If someone gets rid of Heritage Druid, we're able to use Birchlore Rangers, Nettle Sentinel, and Phantasmal Image to tutor chain to generate mana, tutor up recursion, and then use it. If someone exiles a combo piece, we can tutor up Riftsweeper, shuffle the combo piece into our library, and then tutor it up immediately after using a different piece. And finally, in the event that Nantuko Tracer gets stuck in the graveyard, we can tutor up Scavenging Ooze, exile it, then return it to our library with Riftsweeper.

The reason we don't use a simpler combo is that in its current state, the deck has at least 2 or 3 layers of redundancy for every core piece, thanks to the tutorable recursion. A simpler combo might work, but it would likely include additional dead cards that aren't really all that essential. One of the deck's prime appeals is its powerful resiliency, which operates effectively through interaction.

Devoted Druid is ok but it feels like you would REALLY rather play Arbor Elf. I built an elf deck for like 210 thats white and green for sideboard cards. You do NOT need 4 Chord of Calling. Also, playing 4 Ezuri, Renegade Leader is dangerous because it could be a dead card. trade one out for another Nettle Sentinel and another for a Craterhoof Behemoth if you can afford it. Thats pretty much it. Relic of Progenitus is a important sideboard card as well as pretty much any artifact hate. Fracturing Gust is really strong because it's good against boggles and affinity. good luck building elves, its a really fun deck to pilot and can pick you up some packs at your LGS!

KumaLKS yes, most of the combos are based on etbs, infinite damage on turn two requires a Nettle Sentinel turn one (so it doesn't have summoning sickness.)

sylvannos on BBE in modern Elves?

The problem with Bloodbraid Elf in Elves is that you don't really cascade into anything exciting. Best case scenario? You hit Elvish Archdruid or Shaman of the Pack. What's more likely to happen? You cascade into Llanowar Elves/Nettle Sentinel or some other mana dork.

I'd rather use Summoner's Pact, Collected Company, Chord of Calling, Lead the Stampede, a strong artifact (Staff of Domination for instance), or a planeswalker.

multimedia on G/B Budget Elves, Help Wanted

Hey, you asked for my help. This is a very nice budget Elf deck, good job. To make $120 budget be prepared to cut quite a few cards.

To hit a $120 price point consider cutting:

Eladamri makes Elves unable to interact with Heritage Druid or Ezuri's regenerate. The combo of Heritage and Nettle Sentinel is one of the strongest Elf combos. Dwynen is the least good Elf lord because she can't interact with Collected Company replace her with more Imperious Perfect. Champion is fine, but cutting him cuts $7. You can replace him with one more Imperious Perfect.

Harbringer is also fine, but pretty slow cutting her cuts $5. Consider cutting Hopes replacing it with 4x Duress or 4x Mesmeric Fiend this will cut $4. The double black casting cost of Hopes is going to be very hard to cast because Elves are only making green mana not black. Only 4x sources of black mana is not enough to consistently cast Hopes when you need it in the early to mid game.

Duress is a better card than Fiend, but Fiend can interact with Company or take a creature either one is disrupting your opponent most importantly taking a potential board wipe. Consider cutting Grip for 2x Reclamation Sage cutting $3. Sage is an Elf and can interact with Company. Cutting 1x Decay from the sideboard cuts $4.


Good luck with your deck.
