Orochi Leafcaller Discussion

+1 Love the deck have you thought about Orochi Leafcaller to fix the blue mana problem. You can convert any amount of your G to U at will.

Rather than just mana producing dorks you can have mana filtering dorks especially with your deck producing so much green mana. Orochi Leafcaller although not an elf works really well for mana filtering or you have Nomadic Elf and Llanowar Envoy less efficient but in elf form.

enpc: Thanks for the thoughts! :) In order:
I'm not confident that I can produce using only basics in this deck, and Squirrel Nest seems dead outside of that combo...
Orochi Leafcaller definitely isn't a bad idea, but it also feels kinda conditional...
Hmmm. I might add those, but the deck's combos are pretty reliant on having mana from lands specifically...but, on the other hand, they are helpful for slamming a T2 commander...Decisions, decisions...
Re:Time Warp and friends...yeah, you've convinced me XD as long as my mana base can support it.
Sterling Grove might work. We'll see.
Thanks for the comment!

So a few things I came up with are:
Earthcraft + Squirrel Nest: this is a nice little 2 card combo that you can assemble. But by itself (and assuming you have WUBRG in basics), Earthcraft goes infinite with your commander. Attack with 5 warrioers, net 5 tokens, pay WUBRG, untap all your creatures, use the 5 new warriors to net another WUBRG, repeat ad infinitum.
On the whole, I would look to add more mana dorks - Llanowar Elves, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elves of Deep Shadow, stuff like that. They help your early game and do work with Edric/Champion of lambholt, etc.
Stoneforge Mystic seems strong here. you have a few key pieces that she can fetch and it helps cut down the number of duplciates you have to run.
I would probably look into a few extra turn spells over additional combat phase spells. You have access to blue, and getting an additional untap step seems strong.
Sterling Grove seems really good here. Not only does it fetc, it protec.
That's what I can think of for now, hope this provides some insight.

One of the 3 card combos that on of the cards is the commander that I came up with is Najeela, the Blade-Blossom+Grand Warlord Radha+Orochi Leafcaller. I guess this works just as well as Grand Warlord Radha+Cascading Cataracts+Najeela, the Blade-Blossom, except it is repeatable.

Alright heres my first draft at brewing with axebane. I'm going with a green - blue shell, no red at all, with Viridian Longbow and Brush with Death. No Train of Thought and 4x Commune with the Gods.
2 Trinket Mages to tutor the bow or Springleaf Drum which i realized can play the role of Orochi Leafcaller if you want to combo off with Overgrown Battlement instead (you just need to have 3 defenders instead of 2). Which is why I brought in a full 4 set of Khalni Garden, maybe the card was changed because it really feels like that token should have defender (even though I have won attacking with them before).
