If you need more card draw you should consider Slate of Ancestry :)

Umbral Mantle on Elvish Archdruid = infinite mana..

Ezuri, Renegade Leader to buff and protect your elves infinite times and Genesis Wave to play all your deck at once...

also, Slate of Ancestry for hand refill...

I love mono green and I like what you have. Some solid cards that come to mind include Soul's Majesty , Slate of Ancestry , Extraplanar Lens , Boundless Realms , Overwhelming Stampede , Triumph of the Hordes , Time of Need , Regal Force , Joraga Treespeaker , Ulvenwald Tracker . You might find that you have too much mana and not enough things to sink it into, in which case consider Verdeloth the Ancient as a commander... my verdeloth deck is under my profile and he finishes games by himself, just a thought.

Slate of Ancestry for hand refill...

Umbral Mantle + Elvish Archdruid + 3 elves in game = infinite mana...

Genesis Wave + infinite mana = your whole deck on the field...

Thanks Queima! I GREATLY appreciate +1's!

Slate of Ancestry is a really cool card that I will be trying out ASAP. I have been working my butt off trying to get Viridian Joiner in here as well (As the Umbral Mantle combo is so good....). Joraga Warcaller was a little clunky in testing and I think he truly shines in decks we he can be buffed while on the board (so you don't have to keep him in your hand) with cards like Immaculate Magistrate ). I can't get rid of Coiling Oracle or Elvish Visionary unfortunately....they represent card draw, devotion count, and elf count (for Elvish Archdruid ); so in this build they are a little more powerful than they are traditionally....I have dropped Garruk Wildspeaker down to two; but he is a pretty good card in here (as he is a win con 10% of the time and is really great with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ...

Thanks for the great suggestions! I will certainly be testing Slate of Ancestry immediately :)

+1 from me man.. great deck.. I only have one suggestion, since this kind of elves deck tend to run out of cards to drop pretty quickly (if you dont have any Genesis Wave ).. take a look at Slate of Ancestry .. i use it in my elves deck, and its great... yeah, its a 4 drop.. but you can use it as it hits the field, it really refills your hand and the discard wont matter, because, with infinite mana, you play everything in your hand before you tap this thing.. and a 4 drop its not that bad, you probably still have cards in your hand by turn 4 anyway...I also like Asceticism , Viridian Joiner and Joraga Warcaller ... I would remove Garruk Wildspeaker , Coiling Oracle and Elvish Visionary ... but thats just me...

Hey there. Nice deck.

I'd swap:

Loxodon Warhammer >> Sword of the Paruns

Gorgon Flail >> Slate of Ancestry

I find that creature specific equipment won't be too effective in a deck full of little guys. Especially if you have to keep re-equipping or the guy just get smushed in attack. Those artifacts will help your draw and untap for krenko.

Also, Last-Ditch Effort >> Roar of the Crowd or Gempalm Incinerator .

Those were just off the top of my head, but I have more recommendations and ideas! Check my deck if you're interested Krenko EDH: Budget Brawler. Price
