Hey Randsome, I'm currently not playing Pioneer. There's definitely many more and much better Elves in Pioneer than in Standard. Shaman of the Pack gives Elves the tribal win condition and a reason to be Golgari. If I decide to play Pioneer then I will definitely change this deck since I've left Standard.

I don't think I will return to Standard for quite a while, if ever, because it's a damn mess, a waste of money and Theros is the next plane we're revisiting. It's one of the few planes in the multiverse that doesn't have Elves. I'm a Commander player now and I don't see that changing because Wizards is supporting Commander a ton next year which I'm very excited about.

If I was playing Pioneer then this is the budget Elves decklist I would play:

Total: $130

Tuesday night Modern 4-0 $60 store credit winner.

2-0 Grixis Ninja

2-1 Eldrazi Tron

2-0 Elves

2-0 Infect

Deck ran greater than expected. This deck pulls way ahead as most decks get behind expending resources against the efficient creatures. And once you get established with a Retribution, you can just absolutely wreck someone's board. I ran up against a game 1 critical mass of elves, turn 3 i was down to 5 life after an attack and Shaman of the Pack Some strategic Retributions in 2 turns i decimated his board and won running away. Soooo impressed, this deck is for real.

I suggest splashing some black so that you can play Shaman of the Pack .

I just posted on the Modern deck help forum and saw your list there. I am an Elf guy so I thought I would pop in.

First, drop all the pump spells. Elves are their own pump spell.

Second, if you are playing with Shaman of the Pack , and you should, you need black mana. Good budget options are Overgrown Tomb , Llanowar Wastes , and Unclaimed Territory .

Three, for card draw use Lead the Stampede and Beast Whisperer . If you can swing it Craterhoof Behemoth combos nicely with Beast Whisperer .

Four, in the side include Beast Within and Damping Sphere and Scavenging Ooze . Ooze is an awesome elf.

For a turn key solution check out this very competitive $100 deck from Saffron Olive.

Looks solid, only suggestion I can think of would be Dimir Machinations and its sole purpose would be to transmute to pull Shaman of the Pack more often.

What do you mean by "kitchen-table" is that another way to say causal?

Elves loses a lot of explosiveness without the 1 cmc mana dorks; you really need to play them. Not only do they let you cast your bigger threats earlier, but they also let you flood the board with creatures faster, which works well with your payoffs ( Shaman of the Pack , Poison-Tip Archer , and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen benefit from large boards, Lys Alana Huntmaster benefits from having lots of mana to cast creatures).

Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , and Elves of Deep Shadow (to help out the black splash) are all inexpensive. I'd cut a mixture of Eyeblight's Ending , Prowess of the Fair , and Gilt-Leaf Ambush to make room for at least 10 of those cards. You can even cut 2 or 3 lands if you have 12 or so mana dorks--competitive Elves decks play 18 lands and still make enough mana to cast their entire hand by turn 3. I'd also recommend you play Elvish Visionary ; like Silvergill Adept in Merfolk, it's one of the cards that keeps the fuel pumping and is just really good in general.

the deck needs sources of black mana if you want to use Shaman of the Pack .

I play Elves in modern. I play it every Friday. So I have a lot of experience with the deck type. There is one card you need 4 of: Collected Company . Elves became a deck because of this card. My deck runs 2 more Shaman of the Pack , 2 more Ezuri, Renegade Leader , and 4 of Elvish Clancaller .

Elvish Clancaller is just a better version of Imperious Perfect .

Shaman of the Pack goes AWESOME with Collected Company . It cannot be understated. On average, he does 6-8 damage.

Joraga Warcaller is a tough choice. He dies to everything (even Fatal Push ), doesn't work well with Collected Company .

Also, I run 18 lands, a number I find to be very well balanced for the deck. At 12 lands, you will lose a lot of games because you had no lands or only 1. I would take out Talara's Battalion and Elvish Champion (she's more of a sideboard card) for more lands.

Pero todo lo que he dicho solo es mi opinion. Dejame saber que piensa. Me encantan los elfos.
