demonicgrizzly thanks for the suggestions, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx completely slipped my mind, but is definitely going in.

Shocked that you don't have Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in here

In a deck that wants as much green mana as possible for your commander, it is incredibly necessary.

Praetor's Counsel also seems like it is very strong, as is Seasons Past

Hello that's a nice deck you have. Here some advice I hope that could help you.

I would suggest Hokori, Dust Drinker, Hushwing Gryff,Ghostly Prison,Leonin Arbiter, Aven Mindcensor those go well in your stax/prison effect.

Also for value Emeria Shepherd,Not Forgotten,Knight of the White Orchid, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Land Tax.

For lands I suggest you Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx,Buried Ruin, maybe Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

I'll aslo recommend Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves since most of time you will target your creature with equipement, thought you migh need it cause of the 0 equip cost

You may also need some artifacts protection things like Leonin Abunas and Indomitable Archangel might interest you.

Actually, you might want to switch this to an elves shell. The fastest (realistic) ramp in the game is with Arbor Elf, Utopia Sprawl, and Garruk Wildspeaker. Playing a playset of each with some additional mana acceleration like Lotus Cobra and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would allow more consistency.

Usually the life gain is enough to basically void the life lost through Manabarbs anyway.

Hm, I've never really had much of a problem with not getting enough mana, especially once Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx hits the field. My main problem is just finding stuff to take out, what would you suggest I take out to make room for the extra lands?

Lemme know what you think could be improved after your playtest too! :D

Callmegkill on Beauty of the Gilt-Leaf

Alright, I've taken a long look into elves and found a few things you may want to consider. Some are budget and some are not. So pick and choose the ones you want.

Budget additions: Beastcaller Savant, Essence Warden, Gather the Pack, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Reclamation Sage (for your sideboard).

Non-budget: Genesis Wave, Cloudstone Curio, Collected Company, Cavern of Souls, Chord of Calling.

Now, my major suggestion would be to splash black. That will give you access to some pretty strong utility spells. If you wanted to do that I'd suggest the following:

Shaman of the Pack, Abrupt Decay, Gilt-Leaf Palace, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek

Hawko0313 on Dimir Zombies

Hey man came here from reddit. My friend runs a list very similar to yours but with a few differences which I'll suggest here.

Nantuko Husk: if you ever get the combination of this and Diregraf Colossus into play, you can use Gravecrawler to swarm with zombie tokens by saccing and recasting for as much mana as you have. Also lets you trigger Relentless Dead at will. Not to mention Diregraf Captain could just kill them.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip: easily triggered by husk and let's you discard excess Gravecrawlers while allowing you to reanimate your powerful 2-3 drops.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx: generates a lot of mana once you get a solid, resilient board state. Allows you to abuse husk+crawler even more and pay for relentless dead more easily.

Thoughtseize expensive, yes. But necessary to combat the powerful unfair enchantments and artifacts the deck can't deal with, while also disrupting combos.

Funny enough, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx doesn't seem to come up in any Merfolk lists. Curious.
