Blakkhand i'm playing with this deck for like a year and a half, had played it truckloads of times in MTGO also. Trust me it doesn't need more mana. Maybe stuff that deploy lands in battlefield like Perilous Forays, Boundless Realms, Abundance, Exploration or Burgeoning.

Abundance btw is beast with Sylvan Library and Slate of Ancestry.

Right now i'm testing Altar of the Brood on mtgo but it didn't had any impact in the game till now. I was hoping for using it with some token infinite combo but it's not working. played like 30 games with it on deck and nothing happened. it just make my opponents dig a response faster. so i kinda coming to the conclusion that this card is fail.

I test my deck a lot before posting something here...

Right now, after Sylvan Offering and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury had been added to my deck, and after i put back Rootborn Defenses and Fresh Meat my win rate with this decks is around 60-65% of my games in both one x one and multiplayer, which is a lot for a EDH deck.

Nice deck. Cards like Tooth and Nail, Pattern of Rebirth, Defense of the Heart and if you have the budget for it Natural Order would be a good fit for this deck. Tooth and Nail lets you draw alot if you have Avenger of Zendikar and Regal Force in your list. Pattern of Rebirth makes them think twice before they whipe the board.

Slate of Ancestry and Harmonize are good for drawing cards, and Umbral Mantle or Staff of Domination gives you infinite mana with Elvish Archdruid, Priest of Titania or Wirewood Channeler.

Craterhoof Behemoth... every tokens deck has it. I playd with him for more than 100 games. I hade the opportunity to use him maybe once. It's statistically fail on my deck. Easy to Get countered, easy to prevent damage.

Rhys' army draws tons of hate quickly and craterhoof most of the time is useless if there is no army on table.

Tooth and Nail I like this card, not in this deck though. There isn't that may combo with creatures that i could use here with that entwine. Most of the time this deck is good because of their enchantments, that can last most of the board sweeps, boost my creatures and help to ramp this deck.

Swords to Plowshares don't like this card, played with it many times, unreliable... the oponent have so many creatures to exile its tough to pick one. I Rather rely on my Glare of Subdual and Humility.

Survival of the Fittest bad card for this deck, not an option. My creatures don't have "enter in the battlefield skills", they have mana and tokens generation. i need then in the field, cant afford do discard then even if i would put Genesis in the deck for example.

This deck i rely on infinite mana combos:

Priest of Titania or Wirewood Channeler or Elvish Archdruid


Umbral Mantle or Staff of Domination

Maybe a Gaea's Cradle + Wirewood Lodge + Argothian Elder combo.

all of those cards goes infinite with Rhys the Redeemed. I'll just need a good mechanism to draw cards like:

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Staff of Domination, Genesis Wave and Slate of Ancestry

and this deck can win on turn 4 no need of craterhoof behemoth.

I always think of Slate of Ancestry then i forget about it lol. Thank you.

I'm not a big fan of making my lands into creatures. Makes it too easy to wipe my lands and i dont really need the extra elves. I can always just search for Elvish Promenade for the extra firepower if needed. Thank you for the suggestions

Ambush Commander, for the surprise elves, and Slate of Ancestry for the draw power.

Slate of Ancestry doesn't work well with Selvala because she's on the board the majority of the time, giving me cards (1-3 per turn). I usually have plenty of cards, and I have yet to be in a situation where I wish I could discard my hand to draw. If Selvala's gone, it's usually because there was a board wipe, so I'd have no creatures anyway.

I would strongly consider Slate of Ancestry when you dump your hand of elves onto the table it is super useful to draw a ton of cards with

I like the idea of Overrun in here. Maybe over Cover of Darkness and maybe including Overwhelming Stampede as well, but I'm not sure the elves will be big enough to make it worth it. I really like Slate of Ancestry. Urza's Incubator doesn't really fit because elves cost so little and create so much mana anyway. I also probably wouldn't include Avatar of Woe because it's not an elf. Price
