Well you cannot have Rhys the Exiled in your deck; it has an activated ability that costs black mana and it's not reminder text. So, you can replace that with Beast Whisperer

Rhys the Exiled has a g/b identity and would need to be replaced for the deck to be legal.

I think we're more or less agreeing on the potential nuances of multicolor. My basic position is that multicolors can be defined just as well as single colors, and as more than the sum of their parent colors.

Helios is white. Elesh Norn is white. Ajani is white. They're all white, but they're the tortilla, sandwich bread, and pita of white. (Your choice for which one's which.) White includes fascism, military skill, order, and unity, but Ajani isn't exactly fascist, and Helios is more interested in making his champion than unifying everyone. I think we can agree on this.

All the colors, and their subsequent combinations, have a huge variety of potential nuances, but they're all distinct from each other, even between different amounts of coloredness. I don't see green/black as green + black, I see it as a unique collection of ideals, goals, beliefs, whatever I said up above.

Are all of these essentially green/black, as cards or characters?

Rhys the Exiled

Sapling of Colfenor

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf

Doran, the Siege Tower

I believe the character of Doran is unique in outlook from the others, and Rhys is green, with a black motivation, as well-represented by the cards.

Rhys the Redeemed can't be in the 99 because he has white in his color cost and I think Rhys the Exiled can't be either because he has black in his text box but I'm less sure about that one.

It looks like a solid deck. I may build some of this into the Rhys the Exiled deck I am working on.

I think you'll need to pick Elves or Artifacts. There are only three or four cards in this entire list that really synergize with Glissa.

Have you checked out Rhys the Exiled?

@ akselodd

Thanks for the suggestions! I agree this deck has been running a bit slow, and I'd definitely like to speed things up. I came into building this with the impression that "Well it's okay that it's a little slow, their hands are gonna be pretty much gone" which is not completely right.

I've taken in most of these suggestions to help them, the only differences being instead of putting in Herald of Anguish I'm going to keep Rhys the Exiled for his life gain (And only 1 Black Mana to keep him from dying should he be blocked), which after a Memory Jar combo you mentioned, would be at least 23 life. I'll take it.

Also, I'ma keep Gnarlroot Trapper in instead of the Elves of Deep Shadow simply because Trapper can give an Elf Deathtouch, which limits your opponent on what to block with, out of a desire to keep certain creatures alive. I agree the Mana ability is nowhere near Deep Shadow's ramp, but to me that Deathtouch is worth it in threat.

Finally, I actually used to have Elvish Harbinger in this deck alongside Quirion Elves, but I switched out Ms. Elf Tutor for Diabolic Tutor (I think we can agree would be the more useful tutor in this deck). I would NOT mind putting her back in to tutor for something like i dunno, Rhys the Exiled, however I don't wish to replace Quirion Elves specifically with her.

EDIT: I've decided to replace Memory Jar with her and stick it into the Maybeboard. It's a VERY useful card but it's pretty damn pricey, so it'll sit there to be bought at a point after I've bought this deck in full. In the meantime, I've filled that slot with Elvish Harbinger, and am still looking to more suggestions from the TappedOut community.

I would suggest cutting: (worst at the bottom)

  1. Scepter of Fugue. In my opinion it's too slow and not impactful enough but i can see why you would play it.

  2. Shrieking Affliction. It's simply too slow. Even if you get someone empty handed it's still just 3 life they are losing. That's not good enough.

  3. Rhys the Exiled. I think Rhys is okay. It's not explicitly a bad card it's just that you can in my opinion run better cards.

  4. Torment of Scarabs. As I've now said many times before, too slow with too little impact.

  5. Coercion. In my opinion, this is the worst card in the deck. it's extremely inefficient and can only be used once. should absolutely not be in the deck.

Now some cards i think should be in the deck: (worst at the bottom)

  1. Memory Jar. This is a amazing card in the nath deck. i know it's pricey but if you can afford it, you will not regret it. I mean it's five mana for 21 elves in a four player game with nath out.

  2. Beastmaster Ascension. It can potentially just win the game out of nowhere.

  3. Planar Void. This really wants to be Leyline of the Void but Planar Void is a hundreth of the cost of a leyline but still works about as well. Sure you have to exile your own cards but your deck has no discernable recurrsion in the first place.

  4. Arterial Flow. You don't care about the vampire part of it, you care that it's a three mana Unnerve.

  5. Herald of Anguish. I have to be honest. this card is not amazing but I just wanted you to atleast know about it. I loved slamming down this when i played my nath deck. At worst it usually makes people discard a card and then it eats a removal spell.

Some cards i think should be swapped: Gnarlroot Trapper > Elves of Deep Shadow. Simply better ramp.

Sheltering Word > Swiftfoot Boots. Better and more reliable protection.

Quirion Elves > Elvish Harbinger? I dunno. this feels like it's a upgrade but it's your deck.

Anyway I hope this helps with your deck!
