Nissa Revane Discussion
4 days ago
I don't think Nissa Revane is where you want to be, Elves wants to win quicker than she allows. I'd cut her and the Nissa's Chosens, play 4x Elvish Clancaller, 2 more Elvish Archdruid and 1 more Ezuri, Renegade Leader. I'd also cut Imperious Perfect and Elvish Champion for Dwynen's Elite to make the go-wide plan better. If you wanted to keep some of the extra lords, I'd cut all eight of the enters the battlefield tapped lands, but overall play 2 fewer lands. Those etb tapped lands will cost you games by slowing you down.

I agree with the Nissa and path of discovery, but right now, this is all I have and can afford under $50. As I said, it is a low budget, but I will look for some substitutes, perhaps a Nissa Revane. Thanks for the feedback though!

ComicSys I have been thinking of switching out Nissa's Chosen here recently, but it has been helping a lot against some Reanimator decks that have been prominent in my group recently. I'll try running Akroma's Memorial in it's place and see how it goes. I'll probably replace Nissa Revane as well with something to help get to combo pieces quicker. Thanks for the comment

Man, Nissa Revane is such a bad card for that deck.. you should replace it with some graveyard hate!

You may want some other finishers to add on to Overwhelming Stampede, as having more than one is a good idea. I’d recommend Overrun and especially Craterhoof Behemoth (which is kind of expensive but absolutely worth it). Door of Destinies may be worth dropping; from my experience with an Edgar Markov swarm deck it’s too slow and it needs gas after you play it, plus it’s a terrible draw late game. It’s great if you can get it early on in the game but there are better cards. Coat of Arms can be risky depending on what decks you play against, but usually it will help you more than your opponents. If that’s not the case most of the time take it out, it’s just hurting you.
Beastmaster Ascension can also make your creatures really big really fast.
Sol Ring is pretty much an auto-include in most if not all EDH decks so you might want one here.
Nissa Revane may also be worth dropping, especially since you don’t have a Nissa's Chosen (which is a good choice) so one of her abilities does nothing. She just doesn’t do enough to be worth running outside of her ultimate, but in my experience in EDH planeswalkers rarely get enough loyalty counters to ult and they aren’t worth running for that ability alone.
Yeva, Nature's Herald is a fantastically strong card in this deck, I would definitely recommend putting her in here.
Steel Leaf Champion is also pretty great; since your deck is mono green the triple green mana cost isn’t a problem and it’s a very strong 3 drop.
Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip (and Gaea's Cradle if you can afford it) is a very strong card here. It can produce incredible amounts of mana and should be worth running. Also, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a land I plan to run in my own elf deck when I finally upgrade the mana base (mine is very similar to yours at the moment, eventually I plan to overhaul it but I haven’t yet) since it’s very powerful in a mono colored deck.
These are some thoughts I had based on my experience with my own Ezuri, Renegade Leader deck. There are plenty of other great elf tribal cards out there I didn’t mention and that I’m not even aware of, but these are just some recommendations on cards I know to be good from experience. This is my deck if you’re interested, you could find some more stuff you want there: Go Not to the Elves (Ezuri elf tribal).

Do you really need to run black? Going mono green would let you run Steel Leaf Champion and in terms of replacing the black elves Narnam Renegade would probably help. A mono colour deck can also rely more on basic lands, making your mana base easier to manage, though adding Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx wouldn't hurt. You might also want to consider Nissa Revane, this is the perfect tribal elf Planeswalker...

I think Nissa Revane should be in the side if your looking to use her. Kind of slow for the main deck. I also don't know your meta but I face a lot with no green makes Elvish Champion weaker than others
What's your opinion on Lead the Stampede vs Chord of Calling? I feel lead is better in black. Helps with recovery after board doe wipes and wedon't have the silver bullets white does so just felt stronger to me

some stuff that would flow well with the token/mana-tap/kill Idea; Marwyn, the Nurturer, Elvish Archdruid, Lys Alana Huntmaster and Nissa Revane. Just some one that help to get the tokens out and give more 1/1 counters.
