Quirion Ranger Discussion

Oloro_Magic on Budget-ish Modern Elves

Honestly, I have always been more of a fan of the flicker variant of elves in legacy which uses Wirewood Symbiote and Quirion Ranger, but Ezuri, Renegade Leader is hard to ignore. Since you are goinf for the more stompy version of elves have you considered Craterhoof Behemoth and/or Joraga Warcaller, to this day those are my favorite way to win with elves. The mainboard looks pretty solid, I would personally only run two Ezuri, Renegade Leader due to the legend rule but three works, and I would cut Pendelhaven all together. Pendelhaven is a great card but with elfball you will always be playing Elvish Archdruid hopefully and that just shuts off Pendelhaven, I would also cut the white you have altogether as you don't need it, the sideboard looks like it needs some work so if you give me an idea of what your meta is I can help there as the side seems a bit all over the place. Heroic Intervention was mentioned earlier and I agree it is a card you should consider.

Finally, I am just curious how 18 lands is working for you, generally with elfball I aim for 16 so I'm just wondering how the two extra affect the deck for you?

Best elf Quirion Ranger

I also began playing Commander by getting Guided by Nature and used the premade made deck as a starting point for my Elf Commander deck, Ezuri's Fury (Budget). Fury is a budget upgrade of Guided by Nature. There's detailed write-ups of the process I used to build Fury out of Guided by Nature. As a new player to the format It might give you some ideas.

For a first Commander deck you have an excellent starting Elf core here, good card sense. Here's some suggestions of other Elves to consider Quirion Ranger lets you bounce a Forest to untap an Elf such as Elvish Archdruid or Priest of Titania this interaction can produce a lot of mana for a simple one drop Elf. If you can bounce her with Wirewood Symbiote or other ways you can play her again and untap another Elf or the same one again. Because of the amount of Elves you're playing Sylvan Messenger can be very good. She can also be bounced to be used again which can be a lot of value. Fauna Shaman although not budget I would find room for her in any Elf deck, she's Survival of the Fittest with an Elf body, very powerful. Being able to discard say a mana Elf when you really don't need it in a game to tutor for Regal Force or Ezuri is great. Elves have a toolbox of creatures with various abilities being able to use an Elf to tutor for any of these tools is amazing.

Two instants that are very good with Elves are Heroic Intervention and Benefactor's Draught. Both are budget and can do a lot for only two mana. Intervention is especially important because it's the cheapest green mana instant spell that can give all Elves indestructibility letting them survive most board wipes while also protecting Elves, Freyalise and other permanents from targeted removal. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is one of the better artifacts to use with Elves.

Good luck with your deck.

Basic combo is as follows.

Play cards with alternative costs of opponents gain life, then convert that to damage through either False Cure and/or Kavu Predator and Berserk

Elvish Spirit Guide and Lotus Petal allow for first turn drops of Putrid Leech and Kavu Predator.

Quirion Ranger serves as a way to help with low land count, acts as a beater if need be and helps keep other beaters untapped after combat for defense.

They want to be in every pauper elves deck (x4): Birchlore Rangers, Quirion Ranger, Nettle Sentinel

They are nice: Elvish Vanguard, Elvish Visionary

aaaaaand... you need some HUUUUDGE draw, not only 2 cards. Distant Melody is pretty nice here.

You want to know the secret to running a powerful Elf commander deck? Run some of these cards Yeva, Nature's Herald, Wirewood Symbiote, Viridian Joiner, Seedborn Muse, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Quirion Ranger, Nullmage Shepherd, Joraga Treespeaker, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, Paradox Engine, Door of Destinies, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Thousand-Year Elixir, and Genesis Wave. If you're unsure what to cut, you could just cut all of your instants and sorcery cards, if you do you can even run Primal Surge.

I can give you a couple thoughts at least.

-Quirion Ranger is very weak in this list- you've only got 4 Forests and Dryad Arbor. What this means is that most of the time, it's going to be a Willow Elf with occasional Maze of Ith effects.

-Natural Order is definitely where you want to be these days. Chaos Elves existed mostly to fight Miracles- a matchup that has dramatically improved since the Top ban.

-You've got 4 Crop Rotations, but really only 1 or 2 lands you'd want to fetch with it.

-Deathrite Shaman is definitely the best mana dork, but with 0 fetchlands to feed him with, he won't be more than a Norwood Ranger most of the time. Better to stick with old reliable for now.

-Your graveyard hate is way too slow in a format where BR Reanimator can go off turn 1 on the play.

-Abrupt Decay, while still a very, very good card, is less necessary in today's meta, and probably isn't needed as a 4-of anymore.

Keeping budget in mind, I'd make the following changes to your list.

-2 Quirion Ranger, -1 Crop Rotation, +3 Natural Order

(You definitely want Natural Order these days, and these cards are the weakest links in your current build)

-3 Deathrite Shaman, +3 Llanowar Elves

(will more reliably produce mana, at least until you've got fetchlands)

-2 Abrupt Decay, +2 Faerie Macabre

(uncounterable grave hate, usable when you're on the draw)

-1 Scavenging Ooze, +1 Bojuka Bog

(fetchable, instant speed grave hate, with Crop Rotation)

-2 Inquisition of Kozilek, +2 Duress

(diversifying gives your discard a bit more reach)

-1 Ramunap Excavator , +1 Progenitus

(the first snake dude wants a different kind of deck than this one, the other puts in a lot of work in the rougher matchups)
