Steward of Valeron Discussion

Your curve is a little high! You might find yourself having trouble against especially fast and aggressive decks. Because of this, it might be wise to make room for things like Avacyn's Pilgrim or Steward of Valeron that can help accelerate you into your bigger plays.

First things first; I love your deck! I like the theme and I really like that its an actual zoo deck instead of a midrange deck.
after reading some comments I dont think Hide / Seek will help against Blood Moon.... once Moon is resolved you will only have access to and if your able to sac Wild Cantor/Burning-Tree Emissary or put in Steward of Valeron... so Hide is out... and Seek kinda just reduces the odds of them drawing into a moon I guess?

Llanowar Elves is one of the most iconic cards in this game, so it naturally has produced numerous variants, some of which are also mono-green and others of which are multicolored.
Among those creatures, Steward of Valeron is a green/white variant, Zhur-Taa Druid and Radha, Heir to Keld are red/green variants, and both Llanowar Dead and Deathrite Shaman are black/green variants, but there has not yet been a blue/green variant of it, so I do hope that WotC eventually prints such a card.
What does everyone else say about this? Will there eventually be a blue/green variant of Llanowar Elves ?

ulmo Hey, thanks for looking at it! I've been agonizing over running Steward of Valeron or Knight of the White Orchid , and eventually decided to go with the Steward since the other one only fetches if I don't already have more lands, whereas the Steward will always tap for G. I might still swap those around a bit depending on how the deck flows, but I haven't had any trouble with the land count (especially with the London mulligan). I'm interested in the first strike part, though. Definitely going to try it out.
Conclave Tribunal and Song of Freyalise are mostly in there because they play super well with vigilance, and I need some form of evasion. The trample Song provides is a nice addition to the unblockable I get from Brave the Elements , and it has ramped me on second main a ton. Also a bit of a thematic include, as a sort of Lady of the Lake figure.

While I usually play with faster cost-effective setups I did tested a lot with something like this list, let me give you my impressions.
First, if you can find more copies of these cards you should run 4 of Qasali Pridemage , Loxodon Smiter , Wilt-Leaf Liege , Fleecemane Lion . These are the core cards that win the game, should max them out.
Second, you definietly want more creatures total. About 28-30 is nice and consistent, any fewer and you won't be able to keep a decent fighting force on the field. Add cheap common creatures like Llanowar Elves and 2 more Steward of Valeron to gain mana faster. Maybe a few heavy hitters like 1 more Oversoul of Dusk or Wolfir Silverheart . Or if you can find some of these Kitchen Finks Knight of Autumn Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers .
Third, too many basic lands. With that many same color sources it will be harder to cast the multicolored spells. Many games live or die by the stability of the mana base. The obvious but very pricey choice is Windswept Heath wich is nice with Knight of the Reliquary , or Temple Garden . Cheaper alternatives are Sunpetal Grove and Canopy Vista , cheapest is Selesnya Guildgate . Whatever you pick, you need more color stability.
2 more Dromoka's Command would be nice too, filling the removal/defense slot. Shapers' Sanctuary will often be a dead card if you opponent doesn't target your creatures, you could replace it with 2 more Shield of the Oversoul .
You don't need to go big money to make a nice Selesnya Midrange get competitive.
