enpc on Land "fetchers".

If you're building a eck based around non-basic lands, I hope you're using Golos, Tireless Pilgrim as your commander. As for fetch options, you have:

to name a few. I'm sure there are a few others (as well as all of hte non-specific tutors - i.e. Demonic Tutor ) however this should be the lion's share of them.

TypicalTimmy hope you’re date went well. In the meantime they’ll have to do with my casual tale.

So I played this group hug deck, right? And I put a Felidar Sovereign in there for idek what reason. I was sure I cut it. I did not. It’s a very casual meta.

Anyhow, this deck also ran Realm Seekers as well as a bunch of Howling Mine effects. So I just happened to play a Minds Aglow that everyone was in on, resolve the Realm Seekers with a Felidar Sovereign on board.

I had enough pillow fort stuff that people were content to leave me at like 25 life. But everyone’s hands were full and this Realm Seekers just happens to be like 27/27.

And then, at the beginning of my untap step, I drop a Swords to Plowshares . And to everyone’s surprise, I target my Realm Seekers ! Do my opponents have instant-speed creature removal? No they do not.

Realm Seekers ?

On the infinite mana angle, I would take the land rout too - Wild Growth , Vernal Bloom and other similar effects + Krosan Restorer type untaps + any of your untap effects = an infinite loop. Has the benefit of just being mana ramp on its own.

Elvish Reclaimer will probably replace Realm Seekers

Lower CMC and the body isn't important. Will fetch Gaea's Cradle , Maze of Ith , and/or Wirewood Lodge as needed.

This deck hasn't been updated in too long, but I thought I might mention that Gateway Plaza adds an entire additional land for Maze's end to work with.

Realm Seekers is a really good card for this sort of thing, able to tutor for any gate card (and if you have enough mana, even several in a turn.) If you're playing in anything more than a duel, you'll likely be able to do this 5 or 6 times.

I'm a big fan of Realm Seekers in Windgrace, specifically because its land tutor isn't just for basics.

I'm also sort of surprised you don't have Retreat to Hagra . That 1 life effect adds up fast in Windgrace, especially when you've got cards like Arid Mesa .

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 .
