Seeker of Skybreak Discussion

Hey, for a first deck really well done. You have good card sense for a beginner in Commander :)
You have Craterhoof, Sword of Fnf and Exploration, but other than these three cards I don't see a lot of other expensive price cards therefore my card suggestions will be low budget ($5 or less each).
Cards consider adding:
- Duskwatch Recruiter Flip: Recruiter can be a mana sink, repeatable way to put a creature into your hand to then cast with Yeva.
- Priest of Titania : one of the best mana dorks in Commander for mono green ramp when you're playing other Elves, Yeva is an Elf.
- Vizier of the Menagerie : Vizier lets you play creatures from the top of your library, you can do this at instant speed with Yeva.
- Nature's Claim : only one mana is an upgrade for Naturalize.
- Joraga Treespeaker : another one drop mana dork who can be a mana sink to make even more mana with other Elves.
- Nature's Lore : search for a Forest and put it onto the battlefield untapped, is an upgrade for Rampant Growth or Lay of the Land.
- Skyshroud Claim : searches for two Forests and puts them onto the battlefield untapped, is an upgrade for Ranger's Path or Cultivate.
- Scavenging Ooze : repeatable graveyard hate is nice to have access to in Commander.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Gatekeeper Vine
- Viridian Emissary
- Mana Bloom
- Lay of the Land
- Rampant Growth
- Ranger's Path
- Desert Twister
- Wildwood Rebirth
If playing Yisan, the Wanderer Bard then consider creatures who can untap him? Letting you use his ability more than once a turn :) This is helpful to chain creatures and build up lore counters faster.
These cards are also good with mana dorks especially Karametra's Acolyte, Priest of Titania as well as Fauna Shaman, etc. Quirion's ability to bounce a Forest you control to then untap a creature you control can be used once on each of your opponent's turns as well as your turn. This lets you at instant speed on an opponent's turn untap Yisan or a mana dork to use their abilities again.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, to make your deck more competitive consider building around Darksteel Reactor , Magistrate's Scepter and Sage of Hours ? A strategy around Biovisionary is not worth it because it forces you to play a bunch of bad high mana cost cards to enable it.
What you want with Reactor/Scepter are cards that can untap Vorel to be able to use his ability more than one time a turn as well as other cards that interact with charge counters. You also want tutors for artifacts. With Sage you need to get a counter on him either with graft (Frogling), moving a counter from one permanent to another (Conduit) or target him (Bioshift).
Cards to consider adding:
- Coretapper : Reactor, Scepter, Prism, Everflowing, Cornucopia, Cannon, etc. use charge counters.
- Kiora's Follower
- Seeker of Skybreak
- Magewright's Stone
- Thousand-Year Elixir : gives Vorel haste and untap.
- Instill Energy : gives Vorel haste and untap.
- Kiora, Master of the Depths
- Tezzeret the Seeker : can be a repeatable tutor and put onto the battlefield either Reactor or Scepter, etc.
- Whir of Invention
- Buried Ruin
- Inventors' Fair
Another thing to consider is decreasing the avg. CMC of your deck. You can do this by cutting a lot of high mana cost cards especially creatures and enchantments for lower mana cost cards:
- Serum Visions
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study
- Sol Ring
- Astral Cornucopia
- Everflowing Chalice
- Simic Signet
- Fauna Shaman
- Eternal Witness
- Scavenging Ooze
- Lux Cannon
- Swan Song
- Arcane Denial
- Trygon Predator
- Trinket Mage
- Ravenous Slime
- Chain of Vapor
- Beast Within
- Reality Shift
- Nature's Claim
Many of these cards are budget and cards like Study are expensive price, but entirely worth it if you're trying to be more competitive. Toothy, Imaginary Friend is a good creature with counter strategies and all these draw spells especially repeatable ones such as Remora and Study can really pump it. Fauna can be a repeatable creature tutor which is very helpful when your budget can't afford all the expensive price tutors. When playing Toothy you want Reliquary Tower because Toothy can draw a lot of cards and you want to keep all those cards in your hand.
I offer more advice :) Good luck with your deck.

The deck continues to test well. Last game I didn't draw any of my bees, so I was instead attacking with a 34/17 Fyndhorn Elves with trample. I had two Timberwatch Elf , which could both pump twice thanks to a Seeker of Skybreak and Wirewood Lodge . I also had a Berserk . Could have technically been a 68/17, since I also had the second Berserk in my hand, but it wasn't needed.

Elvish Herder may be better than Eldrazi Devastator since it can give your lands trample too and is an elf. My friend runs a similar, non-pauper, list that runs Wirewood Herald and Seeker of Skybreak , which could be interesting inclusions in the deck.

I like your deck description. Too bad Seeker of Skybreak is illegal in modern. You'll have to find an alternative combo piece.

$20ish Budget way to make Yisan very fast:
Add in Arbor Elf , Fyndhorn Elves , Wirewood Symbiote , Seeker of Skybreak , Temur Sabertooth , Priest of Titania , Elvish Archdruid , Boreal Druid , Devoted Druid , Great Oak Guardian , Autumn's Veil , Nature's Claim , Natural State , Caustic Caterpillar , Reclamation Sage , Desert Twister , Copperhorn Scout , Wood Elves , Somberwald Stag , Manglehorn , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Leaf Gilder , Heart Warden , Fyndhorn Elder
Drop out Taunting Elf , Verdant Force , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Wild Beastmaster , Worldspine Wurm , Pathbreaker Ibex , Mycoloth , Kamahl, Fist of Krosa , Gyre Sage , Giant Adephage , Elvish Piper , Cultivator of Blades , Bramble Elemental , Avenger of Zendikar , Tooth and Nail , See the Unwritten , Triumph of the Hordes , Overrun , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Genesis Wave , Explosive Vegetation , Zendikar Resurgent , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Umbral Mantle , Lifecrafter's Bestiary
Total of 26 swaps.
The switches lists speed the deck up and make it win through an easy and efficient combo, all fetchable by Yisan. The combo uses Great Oak Guardian , Temur Sabertooth , and Wirewood Symbiote . With these and enough mana producing creatures, you get infinitely large creatures or with 1 more mana, infinitely large creatures and infinite mana, and untaps which can be put into Yisan to fetch Caterhoof and give the team trample.
All together, the deck will also run enough early-game interaction like Caustic Caterpillar , Manglehorn , Reclamation Sage , Natural State , Nature's Claim , the already run Lignify and Acidic Slime , and catch-alls like Desert Twister and Yisan fetchables like Somberwald Stag .
How does this sound?
