what does Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury do for this deck? the tokens she makes aren't that powerful, their creature type (which is usually why she is in decks) isn't geting abused, and 5 mana is a lot for a semi repeatable Naturalize. I thinkshe can come out for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

In my playgroup, Conflux almost always resolves because there isnt much blue played. My usual match for it is a Riku of Two Reflections deck (The person who plays it is all for making deals with people and manipulation so I'm safe there for a while) and a Reaper King deck (usually leaves me alone because they are more afraid of Riku). Usually I'm grabbing dragons with it, although it all depends on the board state. I like going for Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Crosis, the Purger, and sometimes Teneb, the Harvester. I recently changed up the deck quite a bit and haven't had a chance to play with the new cards yet. Although pulling out something like Prismatic Omen, Crucible of Fire, or even Sarkhan Unbroken wouldn't be too bad either.

This looks interesting, but disorginized. Here's my elf build if you are interested at a more combo-oriented version:
Also, here is a video and decklist for GW tokens. Diffrent Commander, but it should help:
My advice? Drop the following:
--BAD OVERALL--(Cards that are just....[incoherent screaming])
Nissa Revane: I'm sorry, she's just BAD in singleton. I know what she dose, but you'll never get to her ultimate, could be running better things for life gain, and as for that tutor? What? use it one time, because singleton? She may be powerful in some elf builds, but here, she'a just BAD. Wellwisher takes her place, Essence Warden being the backup.
Elvish Eulogist: You aren't playing around in the graveyard. This isn't Nath of the Gilt-Leaf Elf Reanimator...whatever....thing. You Don't need life. You're in white. Give stuff Lifelink...or something. I dunno. Just....No.
Elvish Hexhunter: You're playing tokens. Aura Shards is better. Triggers off tokens without costing you an elf. Nuff said.
Gilt-Leaf Seer: I can see the appeal of being able to tell what's comming up, but it dosn't DO anything other than that. Help you get a card? Llanowar Empath or some other green draw creature like Soul of the Harvest would be better here.
Nissa's Chosen: I got rid of Nissa Revane. There is now no reason to run this guy. I don't care if he crawls back into your deck. This is GW tokens. You don't worry about stuff dying because you just make 15 more copies. On their turn. In response to the targeted removal.
Safehold Sentry: What dose this even DO for the deck? I literally see no reason this is in here other than It's an elf.
Scattershot Archer: 1 damage? That's it?
Tolsimir Wolfblood: The token he generates is legendary. Because of this, he becomes little more than an over-costed buff on a stick.
--Personal Cuts--(Cards that I wouldn't run, but are ok(?) to run. Keep these on the radar to swich out if needed or when the list becomes tight)
Elvish Branchbender: I don't like animating lands too much. He's cool because token deck and all, but still, it's a land that can get killed as a creature.
Elvish Soultiller: He can reanimate, but tokens, so.... eh?
Seedcradle Witch: Olny pumps 1 creature and requires white mana to do so. Dosn't even give trample. Better ways to pump.
Harmonize: I don't like single use things. If I'm gonna give a card a spot in my deck, I'd want more than 1 use out of it. This deck is not a Riku of Two Reflections Token build, thus there is little way to get multiple uses out of this for draw power.
--Additions--(Cards I would add)
Trostani, Selesnya's Voice: You want life gain token shenanigans? She's your tree-dryad-thing!!
True Conviction: While not buff, it's still funny!
Skullclamp: You make 1/1 dorks, then equip this, then draw cards. You block with something and draw cards. This draws you cards. This is banned in almost every format BECAUSE of how good it is. PLAY IT! ABUSE IT! WELCOME TO ELVES!!
Garruk Wildspeaker: Great utility guy! Untap lands, make a creature that you can duplicate, AND get a buff? Yes please!!
Voyaging Satyr/Argothian Elder: I perfer the elder, but both do the same thing. Also, I'd perfer Wirewood Symbiote to Quirion Ranger becuase then you don't have to potentionally waste a land drop for turn, but that's just my pereferance.
Concordant Crossroads: Becuase mono green haste is funny.

This enchantment is so bad for creature combo that it doesn't even work with Grenzo, Dungeon Warden.
These allow you to stack your entire deck provided you live to turn 3, which would be easy if you were playing these lands in some sort of control deck with something like 14 1 drops. Then you just need 2-3 lands, this card, and the rest answers. Once you are able to sacrifice a token you stack the deck and go nuts with something like High Tide or storm.
In short I actually think it's more viable for non creature decks and even then only if you have the correct control cards to support it such as Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Mental Misstep, Path to Exile, Spell Snare, perhaps Spell Pierce (for modern anyways) and then a way to get enough damage to combo once you stack the deck. Definately for 60 card you either want to have one of those three control colors or use things like Faithless Looting to speed it up.

I kind figure this would happen. First I'm kind of new to the site and second Riku of Two Reflections is hard to ask for help because everyone has different opinions about what to do. Plus everyone has huge EDH budget or have been playing forever. So thanks for bearing with me. This deck was way worst back when I first build it. Its just that I have been improving this a few cards at a time.As for what to cut I agree with: Utvara Hellkite(Avenger of Zendikar place holder), Unexpected Results (I have Genesis Wave now), Kessig Cagebreakers, and Nim Deathmantle(in some games it was good), Gaea's Blessing.I am on fence about cutting:Inferno Titan, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Rampaging Baloths, Uyo, Silent Prophet (I want to replace with Dualcaster Mage). However I do want to keep Wormfang Drake. You can flash it into play to save Riku of Two Reflections from removal. Plus combing Wormfang Drake with Deadeye Navigator to blink anything I want. I like a lot of your suggestions and add to my ongoing list; however things Sower of Temptation, Survival of the Fittest are out of my budget for now.I do have always been confused about running counters in Riku. I know there are only few ones that help out your deck and the rest are mostly dead if you copy it. I have Spell Crumple and Plasm Capture. As for Rhystic Study, I ran it originally but cut it for Mulldrifter because I ran to many enchantments at the time.
I will test what I have now and add it to the list and collect everything else later and thanks for the help.

I was wondering how this card would fare in a more casual Riku of Two Reflections? When you're not trying to turn four/five a Tooth and Nail into Kiki Jiki/Zealous Conscript or Avenger of Zendikar/Craterhoof Behemoth. With Sylvan Primordial getting the banhammer, I don't run a whole lot of ETB, but more fun creatures for giggles. My Anima deck will love this, but this seems so out of place for Riku.

It depends on your deck concept. If you have a way of recycling ETBs, like using Riku of Two Reflections, Cackling Counterpart, Fated Infatuation, or the best of them, Venser, the Sojourner Trinket Mage can quickly replace the loss of flexibility with card advantage.
In the absence of building specifically to do that, though, Fabricate's flexibility is better.
