When Sylvan Ranger enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic land card, reveal it, and put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
I Really like this deck, however i do believe that it could be a bit better. For instance you could put in a Sylvan Ranger in place of one of your other land fetch elves, or in addition if you would like. Also, as you have a Revive and a Praetor's Counsel , i dont believe that you need an Elven Cache . Also, it is very important to have at least one or two board-wipes in an EDH, which i see you don't. i would suggest a Ratchet Bomb , Oblivion Stone , or Nevinyrral's Disk . The reason i chose these two is that unlike All Is Dust , you can regenerate through it with your commander. Another thing to consider would be to add a Priest of Titania , I see that you have an Elvish Archdruid , but you know, the more the merrier. As i said, I really like this deck, I've actually made my own version of the same deck. Elves... Elves Everywhere.... I'm a fan of Elves and think that with a few edits, this deck will be kicking butt. Thanks for a different look on Ezuri.
would give you another reusable spell (I also use Riptide Replicator
& Orochi Hatchery
for lots of little guys). Early in the game the Llanowar Elves
and such are very nice, but if you are playing more than one person at a time and the games go longer you might be better served with land tutors like Sylvan Ranger
or Wood Elves
. Magus of the Candelabra
is very useful with this boss (and pretty much ONLY with this boss..).
I am wondering if adding all kinds of stuff like Lightning Greaves and Privileged Position will be enough to make this work better in multiplayer. I may also want more ramp (i.e. probably putting Borderland Ranger and Sylvan Ranger back in).
It does well 1v1 but just gets targeted mercilessly in multiplayer! it could be my meta - but no matter the reason ... I need to protect stuff more because counting on flicker for protection when there is a table of hate instead of an opponent of hate coming your way don't cut it!!!
I have some time this week so I should be able to look at other decks more than usual ;-)
Door of Destinies does feel a little too combo-ey for me right now since I'm not planning on casting a ton of the same creature, just having them on the field. I think it'll be cut. I also think I'm going to replace Leyline of Vitality with Leyline of Lifeforce so control decks don't just eat me alive.
I really like Alpha Status
and I love how it fits the flavor, but I do see your point. I can probably fill that spot with something better.
Saltcrusted Steppe is a much better version of those.
Door of Destinies , and Coat of Arms are very good, but I see them as almost overkill. Coat of Arms is better in my opinion though. Leyline of Vitality might not be the best fit for you either. Your creatures are so large, I am not sure if you really need to buff them too much. If you have enough creatures to make Alpha Status strong, doesn't that mean you have a ton of huge creatures?
You have some nice stuff in there, but it seems you are missing the basics. They are easily overlooked, but they usually work the early game. I have more suggestions if you like these.
I guess I am just curious why there are so many one off's. I would run 4 Sylvan Ranger instead of the others. Or you could keep some of the others also. Since you rely on the green guys to get the game going, I would put more green mana then the others. Since the green brings out the rest. Farhaven Elf is good too, it goes to the battle field for one more then the ranger.
Here are some more budget ideas. Blade Splicer , Oblivion Ring , Halimar Depths is a must, Bojuka Bog , Khalni Garden , Piranha Marsh There is so much you could do with this idea, just got to figure out what you want.
Not sure if you knew this, but exiled tokens do not come back.
I think you can only play one Garruk at a time now so you might be careful with 3 of the same named plainswalkers in your deck. Its like a legend with the same name I think.
