Soren841 is right on all accounts. I mean Ulvenwald Tracker , Nullmage Shepherd , and Heritage Druid aren't bad cards, they are however bad in a list like this. I think some stax lists have and can run the first two, and some elfball lists run the last.

Argothian Elder goes infinite with Maze of Ith during combat, or Wirewood Lodge + either Nykthos or Cradle outside of combat.

Elvish Guidance turns any land into a Cradle, which goes great with Arbor Elf .

Copperhorn Scout gives a mana boost mid-combat, allowing you to drop a surprise Craterhoof Behemoth .

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves can be held in the hand until the moment someone tries to kill your elves, then dropped at instant speed to counter the spell/ability. Note that this shuts off Wirewood Lodge so Temur Sabertooth can be necessary to get him back off the field. Heroic Intervention provides a similar effect for the same cost, but only once (unless you have ewit shenanigans ready).

Elvish Harbinger is one of the best tutors going for elfball decks.

Ezuri, Renegade Leader is another infinite mana outlet that wins games.

Heritage Druid gives you the ability to tap elves for mana on the turn they come down, and pairs up with Lys Alana Huntmaster really well.

Joraga Warcaller can be played early as a minor lord to keep your weenies alives, then bounced and re-played later when you have a surplus of mana.

Krosan Restorer is a far better version of Voyaging Satyr even though it costs 1 more.

Loaming Shaman is great grave-hate that can also double up as recursion if you've got the draw engine started.

Nullmage Shepherd will make artifact / enchantment based decks scoop on the spot.

Patron of the Orochi untaps itself every turn along with every other creature you control (but also every green creature and forest at the table).

Realm Seekers often comes down as a huge beater, and tutors up any land at instant speed.

Skyshroud Poacher will win you the game unless it is immediately removed. Best elf tutor ever printed.

Treefolk Harbinger topdecks you a forest on turn 1, also tutors up Lignify if necessary.

Ulvenwald Tracker removes nasty threats, especially in conjunction with Vigor .

Furthermore Nullmage Shepherd seems way better than my Reclamation Sage . I Need to have a try with this one ;)

Hey, this is one of the better made Emmara decks on TappedOut, nice job.

Consider Reconnaissance? One drop enchantment is very good with Emmara since it gives you three phases to tap and untap her each turn. During your first main phase tap and untap Emmara then attack with her and take her out of combat. Free to then tap and untap her again in your second main phase. Consider Aura Shards or Nullmage Shepherd? Shards is one of the better enchantments with tokens being able to destroy not just one, but many opponent artifacts or enchantments each turn whenever Emmara makes a token. Shepherd is less good, but budget and still can be a repeatable way using Emmara/Soldiers to destroy your opponents artifacts/enchantments.

Consider Eladamri's Call? Budget creature tutor and it's one the best since it's instant and puts the creature right into your hand. Canopy Vista, Temple Garden, Bountiful Promenade are Selesnya dual lands to consider. Gavony Township and Wirewood Lodge are great utility lands with Emmara and tokens.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Sundering Vitae
  • Join Shields
  • Helm of the Host
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • Selesnya Sanctuary
  • 1x Plains
  • 1x Forest

Hey, looks good for your first Commander deck. Quite a high budget for your first deck and nice Doubling Season :)

Cards to consider adding:

Most of my suggestions other than Titan and Thunderfoot are to reduce the avg. CMC of the deck which is currently 3.5. As six drops Titan and Thunderfoot are worth their mana cost. If you reduce the avg. then you can theoretically play cards faster in a game which means you can get token value from Emmara faster.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Blossoming Sands
  • Graypelt Refuge
  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Forest
  • Isochron Scepter: not enough 2 or less mana instants
  • Blinding Angel
  • Steelshaper Apprentice
  • Akroma, Angel of Wrath
  • Auriok Salvagers
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Devout Chaplain
  • Odric, Master Tactician
  • Reya Dawnbringer
  • Crackdown
  • Lurking Predators
  • Zendikar Resurgent
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Fountain Watch
  • Condemn

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, if the goal here is the tap Emmara to make a Solider army then consider more repeatable ways to do it without attacking?

Being able to tap Emmara to make mana for ramp is very good.

Other cards to consider:


multimedia on Trostani, Lord of Life and Birth

Hey, looks good, but your deck is built much more to use Emmara, Soul of the Accord or Rhys the Redeemed as Commander than it is to use Trostani. If you want a Selesnya Commander who's good with 1/1 tokens then consider Emmara or Rhys as both can create tokens. You can play Trostani as a card in the 99 with either Commander. I see that you've included Emmara here, consider switching to using her as Commander? Rhys is a pretty damn expensive card, it can be an upgrade for later on.

I give this advice because there's a clear 1/1 token theme here with lots of cards that make 1/1 tokens or can benefit from lots of tokens. This theme is better suited for a Commander who can create tokens. The little token theme out ways the big token theme as a result there's a lack of big stuff here which is what you want with Trostani. The 1/1 token theme is not very good with Trostani as Commander because using her to consistently only populate 1/1 tokens isn't very good.


You're already playing a bunch of cards that are good with Emmara as Commander:

  • Lives
  • Procession
  • Rite
  • Song
  • Glare
  • Quest
  • Rites
  • Warden
  • Attendant
  • Priest
  • Thune
  • Sunmare
  • Mycoloth
  • Tendershoot
  • Shalai
  • Wayfaring
  • Scatter
  • Throne
  • Discovery
  • Harvest
  • Camaraderie
  • Revelation, etc.

This is a large amount of cards; it's seems like you had Emmara in mind when you built your deck. You can expand on this with more cards that let you tap or untap Emmara to create tokens:

Two budget cards that are very good with 1/1 tokens are Skullclamp and Mentor of the Meek.

Good luck with your deck.
