mmmhmmmm, I can get on board with this. I'd sideboard Scattershot Archer, for those guys running flyers.

I think that this can be a devastating SP and MP deck.

Greatbow Doyen and Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile are all-stars. Throw Trophy Hunter in there and you've got intense synergy. Scattershot Archer deals with flyers. Crossbow Infantry is great, if you pair him with Armadillo Cloak, Felidar Umbra, or Battle Mastery.

However, if you splash black, things get mean. You've got Phyresis, Sultai Runemark, and Aspect of Gorgon.

Archers synergize with any creature that is massive, but creates tokens for opponents, like Hunted Troll.

With some ramp, like Caravan Vigil and Rampant Growth, you can accelerate.

You'll need protection, so Crib Swap is an easy check, because you can easily deal with the 1/1. Same with Afterlife or Beast Within. Selesnya Charm is also good because of the options it provides. If you splash black, there's many more options available.

Pulse of Murasa is also good, but I wouldn't put too many in.

Hi! Quick question: Why Scattershot Archer in the main? Not sure how I feel about this conditional card that is perhaps great against Delver blue, or Soul Sisters, but otherwise, just a 1/2. Wouldn't be better in the sideboard?

Suggestion: 4x Nest Invader, triggers the Soul Warden/Attendant twice, helps convoke, gets you a 2/2, and the token can be sacked for mana if need be.

You will defo need more trample. Predator's Strike comes in handy and fill out the Llanowar Augur.

Apostle's Blessing is awkward to play around if your playing against any Green or a mirror. If you don't stack spell correctly, you will fizzle your pumps. Try 2 Blessing, 2 Ranger's Guile.

If you run 4x Gitaxian Probe and 2x Tranquil Thicket then you could cut 4 lands. U can cut another 4 lands if u run Land Grant.

Scattershot Archer, Aerial Volley, Gut Shot and either Nature's Claim or Gleeful Sabotage would go a long way in your sideboard.

Elvish Visionary draw

Lys Alana Huntmaster combos with other elves

Nettle Sentinel 2/2 for G

Sylvan Ranger fetch

Gitaxian Probe speed, draw, and hand advantage for "free"

Birchlore Rangers if you want to go crazy with SB


Tranquil Thicket more speed and draw

Turntimber Grove sucker punch they don't see comming

Khalni Garden saves elves from MBC sacrifice spells

Evolving Wilds 4 of to thin, speed

Terramorphic Expanse same as above


Scattershot Archer must need for delver

Gut Shot takes out small blockers and flyers for "free"

Apostle's Blessing saves Crusher and Shambler, also makes them unlockable

Fog for aggro, mirror, and infect

Circle of Protection: Red if you use the Rangers then ur best def against burn

Tormod's Crypt grave hate

Relic of Progenitus this or the above

Gleeful Sabotage for afinity

You prolly won't need the artifacts or the enchantments. If u drop to 2x Crusher and 2x Shambler you cld make more room also and speed the deck up considerably.

I built something similar a while ago. My sideboard has Spore Frog and Brindle Boar for aggro/ burn and Augur of Skulls for control (all of which have Bloodbriar synergy). I like Wail of the Nim as it can sweep away a board full of elves or protect your guys from removal/ in combat. You'll probably want some artifact/ enchantment removal, Natural State being the most efficient. Also Aerial Volley and Scattershot Archer are great against decks with fliers. I'd be tempted to put an extra Bequeathal in the side too, for decks without much interaction.

In the main deck you probably want to find space for 4 copies of Hunger of the Howlpack; if you can reliably trigger morbid then it's the best pump spell in the game. I have a 1-of Rite of Consumption for a affinity-esque combo kill; sac you board to Carrion Feeder then rites for the win. I also play a singleton Fists of Ironwood as a 5th Rancor which gives a couple of extra bodies to play with. I haven't got around to testing it yet, but Cry of Contrition seems like something worth investigating; I'm tempted to try 1 in the main, 1 in the side.

I'd try swapping out some of your tap lands for Evolving Wilds as they have the minor upside of pumping Bloodbriar which can be relevant. Maybe find space for a Bojuka Bog and a Mortuary Mire.

Finally if you fancy trying some spice you could add in a Crop Rotation package. CR sacs a land which pumps Bloodbriar and you can fetch up utility lands like Sejiri Steppe and Khalni Garden at instant speed to protect against removal/ edicts, or Soaring Seacliff for extra evasion.
