Sylvan Tutor Discussion

I mean, Aluren has won me games before, especially considering that I can combo with it, and I keep the land count high because I really like getting Seton out on turn 2 to get out underneath people, but, fair enough, maybe I could axe cards like Ring of Three Wishes . I'd actually prefer Sylvan Tutor over Summoner's Pact , though I suppose I could easily play both.
And I've had great success with Akroma's Memorial many times before--it's literally just a better Concordant Crossroads once I'm going off (the extra 6 mana makes no difference), and having two such effects can be important to doing so. Coat of Arms Has also won me games on the spot, but I guess you could call that anecdotal.

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .
It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .
If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .
Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

Worldly Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Ponder, Brainstorm, Preordain, Impulse, etc. all work for filtering/tutoring, but other options like Opt, Peer Through Depths, Uncage the Menagerie, Mystical Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Summoner's Pact, Sylvan Tutor, Recruiter of the Guard, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower, and Spellseeker are more specific options that can work too.

Oh and path is better here because I'm trying to win through damage. Plus I can path a token in a pinch if I need that one more mana

griffstick big fan of selvala EDH, I run a cEDH version of the deck, that uses Selvala for her incredible stax&combo potential, but love this more casual version too, good luck crushing your opponents in life&mana advantage man!
I'd give you some recommendations, but a lot are expensive, things like Teferi's Protection over Dauntless Escort and other things in that line, but I do have a few cheaper swaps like Swords to Plowshares over Path to Exile, the land can make much more of a difference than the life.
You have those in the maybeboard though, so here is what is left:
Dorks like Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic, Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid, Fyndhorn Elves, etc. to get that turn two Selvala, to gain a ton of mana really fast, Umbral Mantle, Sword of the Paruns, and Staff of Domination to turn extra mana into more cards and life and more mana, allowing you to get a lot of value, and Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, and Wirewood Channeler to go infinite mana with those cards. After you get infinite mana you get infinite draw power with untapping/tapping selvala with her ability and the untapper from before.
Use a Green Sun's Zenith to keep filling your deck inbetween draws, while your opponents deck out. Cool combo right?
Cards like Fauna Shaman, Stoneforge Mystic, Worldly Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Sylvan Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Birthing Pod, Survival of the Fittest, and Recruiter of the Guard, Woodland Bellower/Fierce Empath, etc. can all fetch it out!

Hey man. Your list seems okay on paper, but I've been playing Saffi for almost 3 years now, and can see a lot of problems that your list is sure to run in to in a real game.
Immediate changes I would make:
- Naturalize >> Nature's Claim
- Angelic Renewal >> Survival of the Fittest
- Scattered Groves >> Brushland
These cards will accelerate your deck more than you know.
Furthermore, you should make slots for better pieces of protection, as other decks at the table that run more advantageous colors like Blue and Black, and will surely out-pace you, even at full power. Sylvan Tutor is an instant include to speed you up, as are Summoner's Pact and Chord of Calling. You lands that enter tapped should be replaced with better options, such as Mana Confluence and/or City of Brass, as color fixing is a must. That being said, Glacial Chasm should be there to protect you and be your best Crop Rotation target. For creatures to protect yourself please consider: Aegis of the Gods or True Believer, and Tajuru Preserver.
Lastly, I would drop the Skullclamp/Mentor of the Meek package. You're taking up too many card slots devoted to something to is inefficient is terms of mana usage. If you really want to get card draw down, please use Soul of the Harvest (and check out how Loyal Retainers gets you there with Soul and with Fecundity).
All in all this is a fairly solid list, but don't be afraid to check out mine!
