Sword of the Paruns does a good job of imitating a second Umbral Mantle, though it may be slower than what you would want.

Burst of Strength and Stony Strength may also be decent, as they can give something vigilance for a turn or make Marwyn bigger and produce mana again.

I come from a casual and jank build style, so I'm not sure of these cards viability in a competitive deck, but hopefully these may give you some ideas.

well first off you can add in Sword of the Paruns Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination for some infinite mana and then there's Kindred Summons that i've found alot of success with. also Vitalize has hit hard

hope i helped in some way but beyond that you have a strong foundation.

I see you also run the Kiki-Jiki/Combat Celebrant combo!

Seeing as you already run Emrakul's Hatcher, a consideration might be made for Sword of the Paruns.

You would equip it to Kiki-Jiki, tap it to create another Hatcher. Sac the 3 tokens to dump into the Sword, untapping Kiki-Jiki. Its just another way of creating infinite hasty bois to throw at everyone :)

MapPsycho Glad you like the deck! Rashmi's one of my favorite commanders and this deck is the one I play and tinker with the most. Also yes, Sword of the Paruns is a great card! Slipped under my radar for a long time too but has great synergies out there :)

Hey Doombeard1984! long time no see lol, the decks looking good. saw you swapped Paradox Engine(glad I bought Aura Shards instead lol) for umbral good choice I've been using Sword of the Paruns for the same effect I like umbrals 0 equip cost tho, but once you've hit 3 or 4 other elves guess that becomes moot. Anyways I actually was hitting you up because I've made a couple new decks my newest addition being Reign of Fire(very fun, but already polished), but am currently crafting a new creature deck and wanted to get any feedback you might have since I know you like creature decks as much as I do and we seem to have a similar play style so please be as brutal or kind as you like, here it is Shapeshifter shenanigans hope you like it.

Chances are if you're playing Selvala, you're going to end up having a bunch of elves in your deck anyway. I would recommend Elvish Archdruid/Priest of Titania/Wirewood Channeler + Sword of the Paruns/Umbral Mantle/Staff of Domination. From there, you can use Selvala to draw your deck a whole bunch and then use Green Sun's Zenith which is just good in the list to begin with) to keep failing to find and re-shuffling itself into the deck. This way you can keep drawing indefinitely while your oppoenents all deck themselves.

I would also recommend Yisan, the Wanderer Bard since he already fits into an untap deck and provides really good incremental value. You can also use him to assemble Avacyn's Pilgrim/Bird of Paradise + Priest of Titania + Village Bell-Ringer + Temur Sabertooth very quickly.
