Prowess of the Fair Discussion

Yeah, Lightning Bolt is almost always a very annoying spell, but I mean hey, Prowess of the Fair is also a very annoying answer to that which is very cheap haha. I must say, this deck rocks! Thank you for creating and sharing this dude.

A definite weakness would be against Lightning Bolts. They can basically take care of anything, and the only card I have against those are Prowess of the Fairs (which are great against boardwipes).

Black Green is great against Death's Shadow, due to Shaman of the Pack.

This is definitely a fun deck to play for me, especially since I have gotten some of my friends to play elves as well.

Spellskite doesn't fit my meta well, as, besides a few obscure pump spells, I mostly want to be able to stop my creatures from getting countered, or a way past boardwipes. Prowess of the Fair, if not removed, gives my opponents a reason to not fire off a boardwipe, because I can easily regain my boardstate, whilst they are still crumbling behind their Supreme Verdict.

I haven't tried running any fatal push, because I don't like to run mainboard fatal push in a tribal. If push proves to be more useful, I'll stick them in over Bile Blight, I'm just looking for something to fill that spot; bile blight, grasp of darkness, or push.

Thanks for your suggestions! I'll have to test out Copperhorn Scout. I do agree with the weakness of Joraga warcaller, as it usually ends up being a bad turn 1 to let me play dwynen's elite.

I generally dislike Nettle Sentinel, as it is mediocre by itself, and really good with Heritage Druid. picking up a hand and seeing a nettle sentinel but no heritage druid turns it into a a 1 mana 2/2 that gets very hard to untap, and since any other elf can easily turn into a 2/2 and above, I don't play heritage druid for that reason.

If you don't mind, I have a question for you. Is Shaman of the Pack a necessary in green black elves, or is it more of personal preference / deck style? (I find that making opponents lose 4 life isn't as relevant as running a card like Prowess of the Fair that gives you some way to get back from boardwipes).

Hello! I think you should find a place for such cards as Gaea's Anthem, Obelisk of Urd, Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton. This is a tribal Elvish deck so you need to boost your creatures. Prowess of the Fair is also a good card for tokens sub-theme.

Heritage Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Birchlore Rangers, Priest of Titania, Joraga Treespeaker let you turn your tokens into mana etc.

Nature's Lore, Assassinate, Bone Splinters, Death Stroke, Despise, Distress, Explore, Gruesome Discovery, Journey of Discovery, Mind Rot, Appetite for the Unnatural, Doom Blade, Druid's Deliverance, Gilt-Leaf Ambush, Naturalize, Seedling Charm, Spring Cleaning, Strength in Numbers, Vitalize, Prowess of the Fair, Wayfarer's Bauble, Deadbridge Shaman, Silhana Starfletcher can all be cut in my opinion. These cards are all low impact or just a bit eh, compared to what you can do.

Unnerve should be Syphon Mind.

Nullmage Shepherd lets to turn a swarm of tokens into repeatable removal.

If you want to go in hard on tokens, you also have Primal Vigor as another token doubler, Second Harvest as a single use doubler, Sylvan Offering as a massive token producer/political card you can take advantage of especially. Voice of the Woods turns tokens into yet more tokens.

Damnable Pact is a good draw x spell, which can be political, or can be used to burn someone to death. Weird Harvest is an interesting political option, that can let you win on the spot with enough ramp.

Hey, I think you could take advantage of having access to black and little more here.

I'd include Prowess of the Fair, Mind Slash, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Skullclamp and Patriarch's Bidding.

Also consider adding Pernicious Deed and/or Vraska the Unseen, they come in handy sometimes.

Things I'd cut would be Garruk, Apex Predator, Desert Twister, Whirlwind, Gilt-Leaf Winnower, Frontier Guide, Titania's Chosen and Sylvan Ranger. These are just the easiest I saw to cut atleast. Hope that helps !

Allow me to suggest commanders I found didn't have the number of decks they deserve according to

These have less than 50 decks built each, but they deserve more.
