Selvala, Explorer Returned Discussion

Selvala, Explorer Returned will be the least linear of the three. There are infinite combos that you can (and probably should) run in her however it's not just a weenie beats or dig for Curiosity/Ophidian Eye + control shell. You have a few different lines to victory.

Another pretty major tuning pass. The main thing I found after playing this deck a few times was that it wasn't interactive enough with other players. Especially those that had any Flying creatures (I had ZERO answers to flying, other than Constant Mists!). So, in the interest of upping this interaction, I have trimmed out a good amount of the "Awaken" theme to make room for better cards, and more removal, more answers.

These cuts aren't easy to decide on... I'd really love to find a way to fit in 4-6 more lands and really lean into the Landfall theme even harder, but I'm hesitant. I have really come to love the Rude Awakening+Teleportal(overloaded) combo!

Thinking of making a deck based around drawing cards, but I have 3 commanders to choose from;

Selvala, Explorer Returned

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

Please comment which you think I should choose!

If you're going control, GW is great at it. A popular route being enchantress. Two of the more popular commanders being Selvala, Explorer Returned and Karametra, God of Harvests. Both are super great at card advantage and breaking parity through stax effects. I personally live GW, if you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

Selvala, Explorer Returned is the GW general I run but my deck is more of a ramp deck. She is probably one of the best for enchantress though keeps the draw flowing and mana to cast your enchantments fast.

Personally I like the idea of Selvala, Explorer Returned. She gives cards in the beginning but can be used as a combo piece to force each opponent to deck out.

Nerve_Atk I'm quite aware of Fabricate, but it's worse than Enlightened Tutor in my opinion, and I haven't found the need for two tutors in that slot. Most of the time I'm far more concerned with getting creatures into play since there are a number of creature based infinite combos that don't require anything else at all. The access to one more tutor is not worth the loss of a fantastic color. White gives you a tutor as well, a better one than gamble, at that, and it also gives you Selvala, Explorer Returned as well as some relevant hate bears that are fantastic in the deck as a way to slow down some of your faster opponents.

Nerve_Atk So, this was really just a bit of brainstorming that I did a while back. It has since become a Bant elves list, because I didn't want to go through the torment of playing without Selvala, Explorer Returned. Plus Enlightened Tutor finds good old Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm. I'll have a list up soon if you want to see the deck that I currently play with.
