Its a very thematic deck, so I'm trying to stay away from "Eye-blights" ;). But seriously while that is a good idea, the deck is mainly focused on quick ruthless and efficient death via cards like, Poison-Tip Archer, and Shaman of the Pack. If anything I need more direct burn spells. Hit me up if you find any of those, in the elf-category that is. Cause all other beings are imperfect XD.

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:
- 4x Elvish Mystic
- 4x Llanowar Elves
- 2x Gnarlroot Trapper
- 1x Deathrite Shaman
- 4x Dwynen's Elite
- 4x Elvish Clancaller
- 3x Wildborn Preserver
- 2x Paradise Druid
- 4x Shaman of the Pack
- 4x Steel Leaf Champion
- 1x Reclamation Sage
- 2x Sylvan Messenger
- 4x Chord of Calling
- 8x Forest
- 4x Llanowar Wastes
- 4x Unclaimed Territory
- 3x Woodland Cemetery
- 1x Westvale Abbey Flip

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.
For a turn key solution check out this very competitive $100 deck from Saffron Olive. https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-98-13-tix-combo-elves-modern-magic-online

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 .
