Hey, nice start. Unfortunately you can't play Rhys the Redeemed with Marwyn as General because Rhys has white in it's color identity and Marwyn is only mono green. With Elves the more one drops you can add the better especially if they can make mana.

Elves have a real problem without a lot draw because you can run out of steam and when that happens having a lot of mana isn't doing much. Repeatable sources of draw that care about creatures are great with Elves. Draw that's not repeatable is fine too.

Temur Sabertooth is an excellent support creature with Elves as a mana sink. This guy makes creatures who have an ETB ability extra good.

Most tutors in green are expensive price, but there's a few that aren't.

Try to replace land ramp sorceries with Elves who land ramp.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rhys the Redeemed
  • Oath of Nissa
  • Mantle of Webs
  • Savage Silhouette
  • Tanglesap
  • Nissa, Worldwaker
  • Wild Instincts
  • Rampant Growth
  • Nissa's Pilgrimage
  • Panharmonicon
  • Kaysa
  • Turntimber Ranger
  • Joraga Bard
  • Vastwood Animist
  • Tajuru Archer
  • Ooze Garden
  • Lifespring Druid
  • Door of Destinies

Consider cutting the Ally theme? This theme is not needed with Elves and there's not enough Allies here to support it. Good luck with your deck.

Well THCue, I have a friend running a Rhys the Redeemed deck, and the Wheel it's there too. My plan is usually to focus on milling him first with all my resources to mill the Wheel too: at that point, I'm fine, since he doesn't have recursion for enchantments.

However, if he manages to cast it early, the deck lacks specific interaction for enchantments, so you could be screwed. Note how you still can attack him for damage with X/X creatures or kill him with Duskmantle Guildmage / Bloodchief Ascension and some big mill.

It definitely is a card that gets in our way toward victory, but there are workarounds. Remember that you also have cards like Bitter Ordeal to remove specific threats from the library (like Eldrazi titans). Again, in my deck's description there's a section explaining how to counter a specific meta with cards that go against the mill strategy.

No Bojuka Bog , Exotic Orchard , Commander's Sphere , Field of Ruin , or any of the Talismans. Yet, I see Path to Exile , Strip Mine , Phyrexian Arena , and Rhystic Study . While all of these are commander staples in their respective colors, I'd recommend refining the deck before just making a budget '5 color Good Junk' deck. While card advantage is great, the money would be better spent on something like Smothering Tithe , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Land Tax , Exploration , or Burgeoning . At least those will help cast your commander faster.

Cut out some of the nonbasic lands, starting with guildgates, and put in the Panorama lands, and swap the bounce lands for basic lands (unless you intend to add landfall).

Where's the quick ramp spells? Cards like Farseek , Cultivate , Explosive Vegetation , and Rampant Growth .

Furthermore, there's a severe lack of tutors. Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , Open the Armory and Eladamri's Call are all very budget-friendly tutor staples for EDH.

I also see that you're running Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower , but have you considered Spell Book, Praetor's Counsel , or Library of Leng ? Library of Leng has the added benefit of protecting you from discard effects. If you're going to run cards like Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study it pays to protect your hand.

How about protection yourself while you're at it. Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Sphere of Safety , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Glacial Chasm , Solitary Confinement and other such cards make great protection for decks with few to no other creatures.

Back to the subject of drawing cards. What are you even trying to draw for? You don't seem to have any major combos worth drawing for. At least throw in some cards like Furnace of Rath , Bitter Feud , Curse of Bloodletting , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Inquisitor's Flail , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and/or some double strike equipment/enchantments. Or Helm of the Host with a toke copying effect like Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession , Growing Ranks , Second Harvest , Rhys the Redeemed , and Primal Vigor .

Just some things to think about.

Well, you're probably not gonna like this, but I just added Rhys the Redeemed into this deck lol. But I have 10 Boros-based cards and the majority of my land is dedicated to producing red and white mana.

ToolisMaynard , Maybe I'll take Anointed Procession out of one of my other decks.. I've been thinking about it. It's hard,but atleast I've got Parallel Lives . Rhys the Redeemed & Doubling Season are $ i dont have at the moment though, I wish! :^( i guess i could trade for them if I really wanted to but that would be atleast a Mana Drain and one of my Cyclonic Rift 's. Idk great card suggestions, though. Thank you!

Anointed Procession needs to be in here along with Doubling Season !!! Also so help me GOD Rhys the Redeemed is just the nastiest thing to play out of nowwhere if he has a haste effect on the battlefield :) just some friendly suggestions I’m a token crackhead so many it’s a little much but that’s the idea of the commander/deck so felt the need to tell you

I played with tokens, and I have a Ghired deck of my own (Modified precon, but I'm struggling with editing it). Tokens can definitely work in EDH. Rhys the Redeemed is popular for a reason, and lots of similar decks are up on EDHREC (#7 in the top 10).

Now, onto the meat of the matter. If players belittle you for your playstyle or deck choice, that's their problem. You be you, and use whatever card you want, even use Emmara Tandris at the helm or something.

The second, though, takes a bit of coming out of your comfort zone. I had to do this recently with the Mystic Intellect precon, and it's been a blast to play despite the dung I flung at it when it was revealed. Right now, even, I'm attempting to go modular, using Elsha of the Infinite and Kykar, Wind's Fury as well. I also have a Morph deck, but that's not as relevant here.

What I'm saying there is that it's ok to branch out. I borrowed someone's Hanna Stax/Control deck, and I found myself being pretty ok with it despite fretting about it beforehand. It doesn't have to be control or stax (It could be Reanimator or Spellslinger). Heck, Jeskai would be right up your alley, even though the tokens would be a subtheme. Don't be afraid to try new things and don't knock something before you try it. You never know until you do.
