I think Strength in Numbers may end up not work out well, because most of the time you'll sac' a lot before you swing. Maybe something like Unnatural Predation or Larger Than Life would work better. Plus you might need more than just 3 trample cards for it to be effective.

Also, consider my new friend Deathgreeter as an accomplice to Essence Warden (maybe call 'em the "Soul Siblings" ... even though have nothing to do with souls...). Gain life when a creature enters because of Essence Warden, and gain life when you sac' a creature due to Deathgreeter. You like lifegain.

the blue advantage was implied, im just saying that they are somewhat comparable, as good shell commanders for elfball. also marwyn has some good synergy cards that people may be looking over by looking at the elf part too much. some of the cards im about to list are sub optimal if you run too many, but show that she can generate decent value for pretty cheap: Aspect of Hydra, Aspect of Wolf, Berserk, Ivy Seer, Become Immense, Scent of Ivy, Strength in Numbers, Timberwatch Elf, War Dance, Wirewood Pride. now you shouldnt run too many of these because they are only one shot effects, but some of them add enough power to make up for that by making occasional big bursts of mana, and she is another umbral mantle/ parun abuser. i expect that her wins will be along the lines of huge pump spell> dorks> revelation> more dorks> craterhoof. i can easily see this being viable as tier 3. im gonna be brewing her soon anyway in hopes shes atleast respected as tier 3, she will be a good break from mairsil.

Do you ever have enough creatures on the field to make Strength in Numbers worth it? I play a similar Pauper deck, but I rarely have more than two creatures on the field by the time I give my opponent the 10th counter.

Instead I would suggest either Gather Courage if you have two creatures on the field, it there's a 60% chance that it's free, or Phytoburst, since it "equals" you having 5 creatures on the field even if you only have a measly Glistener Elf.

I also don't get why you run Metallic Sliver? It's very inefficient, as it doen't progress your board state by itself, it only Works in tandem with Virulent Sliver. Instead I would run Seal of Strength, which gives you another 1 drop, in case you don't start with the Sliver or the Elf. Another option is Rancor, an enchantment that not only buffs one of your creatures and gives it Trample, it can also be very hard for your opponent to get rid of, as it will always return to your hand unless exiled.

I really like Whirler Rogue as a token generator and something to make your buffed up stuff unblockable. Cultivator of Blades is a great elf that makes tokens and pumps your team for massive swings. I'm not a huge fan of one-off effects like Strength in Numbers in edh, Dragon Throne of Tarkir is a great repeatable version of the effect that goes much better with Ezuri's ability. Lys Alana Huntmaster and Wirewood Hivemaster both generate tokens off of each elf you play. Gyre Sage and Viridian Joiner are some great mana dorks that can generate huge amounts of mana once pumped up with Ezuri. I don't really like Lightning Greaves in Ezuri because it turns off your ability to buff the creature it's attached to, but it's probably just good enough for letting your mana dorks tap for mana on the turn you play them. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a great way to draw cards off of all the cheap elves in your deck. If you don't mind infect, Viridian Corrupter is basically a strictly better version of Viridian Shaman, and doubles as a win condition. Your deck feels a bit light on draw. Some great tribal draw engines are Kindred Discovery and Distant Melody. In addition, Fathom Mage is a great draw engine with Ezuri.

Sorry if this was a bit of an incoherent ramble. If you'd like, check out my Ezuri list (We're Gonna Need a LOT of Dice) for more inspiration. In addition, I'm working on an elfball Ezuri list. Once it's done I'll post it here so you can check out a deck more like this one.
