Talara's Battalion Discussion

Rise_of_the_Hangover on Why are Elves so sELFish?

2 months ago

I run G/B Modern Elves (Elf Party) and Joraga Warcaller is great - I used to run him, but you miss the kicker when you hit him with CoCo or Stampede. I would suggest trying to drop to 1 of, removing him entirely, or maybe finding space for 1 in sideboard for grindy-er match-ups. Also Copperhorn Scout is one elf I've experimented with in the past that you may want to try out. Do your mana tapping M1 and then get them all untapped when you move to combat with her - I think it is an undervalued card in elf builds, especially a mono-green build that is almost entirely creatures. I'm sure you've also seen Nettle Sentinel all over the place, as it's in the same vein as Talara's Battalion, and either would be good to try in place of Joraga. Anywho, nice mono-green build. +1

yup, thats something im considering, what would i cut to add in 2 more heritage druid? I'd like to be able to keep running Talara's Battalion as a 2x, and im really hesitant on cutting many things right now...

first wave of cuts: Unbridled Growth does literally nothing in mono-green, Prophetic Prism same reason, Karametra's Favor don't need. also anything that is giving you energy you dont need it. unless you have some pay off for energy there is no point in running those

things to add (this is a long list so obviously just pick things up as you can. also not all of this will fit in but this is all good stuff):Arbor Elf, Allosaurus Rider, Birchlore Rangers, Bow of Nylea, Cultivate, Devoted Druid, Drove of Elves, Druid of the Cowl, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Promenade, Elvish Vanguard, Everglove Courier, Explosive Vegetation, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Fyndhorn Elder, Gaea's Herald, Gladehart Cavalry, Glissa Sunseeker, Greatbow Doyen, Green Sun's Zenith, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heritage Druid, Harmonize, Hunting Triad, Immaculate Magistrate, Imperious Perfect, Joraga Treespeaker, Joraga Warcaller, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Bowmaster, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Masked Admirers, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Norwood Priestess, Nullmage Shepherd, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Priest of Titania, Realm Seekers, Reclamation Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Tajuru Preserver, Talara's Battalion, terrastodon, Thornweald Archer, Titania's Chosen, Viridian Shaman, Wellwisher, Wildslayer Elves, Winnower Patrol, Wirewood Elf, Wren's Run Packmaster, Yeva, Nature's Herald

(takes giant breath)

yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.

Meine erste Idee war es einfach ein gruenes devotion Deck zu machen. Leatherback Baloth hat drei gruene devotion und ist selbst schon ziemlich heftig. Noch besser wird er wenn du ihn in der zweiten Runde schon spielst. Dafr brauchst du nur ein paar mehr Manadorks, also vielleicht 4x Elvish Mystic, 4x Llanowar Elves oder Arbor Elf. Manadork in der ersten Runde bedeutet drei Mana in der zweiten Runde. Damit kann man neben dem Balot noch so einiges anderes interessantes machen:

Damit hast du dann nicht nur ein ziemlich starkes Board, sondern auch eine Menge devotion fuer mehr Mana aka. Karametra's Acolyte oder Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, wenn du die teuren Hydras spielen willst. Oder du nutzt die devotion aggressiv mit Reverent Hunter oder Aspect of Hydra.

Ansonsten empfehle ich dir, das ganze in ein Commander Deck zu basteln. Viel manaramp und dicke Kreaturen oder eben die ganzen Hydras mit [X] in den Kosten. Auerdem kannst du dann immer mit uns spielen und wir brauchen dringen noch Abwechslung in unserer Commander Gruppe :P

Als Commander empfehle ich dafr Rishkar, Peema Renegade oder Omnath, Locus of Mana

I run Talara's Battalion as well, she sucks to hard cast, but shes gettable through co-co. Shes a really good 2 of, more than that, shes just bolt bait.

Went 1-2 against another modern deck in vanilla mode. I had no enchantment, artifact or creature removal.

Took out Dromoka's Giftx2, Basalt Monolithx1 and Forestx2. Inserted Talara's Battalionx2, Naturalizex2 and Dismemberx2.

I was apprehensive on removing two forest, but it doesn't seem to slow it down any.

WiltLeafElves on Revane Elves

3 months ago

no Elvish Archdruid? this is basically a must in every elf tribal, it combined with all your 1 mana manadorks gives you so much ramp.

also, Ezuri, Renegade Leader is a great finisher, also works with nissa revane's ultimate.

you may want to cut gilt leaf ambush and nissa nature's artisan, they don't do much for the deck, and because elves are so low to the ground, you basically will never win the clash

you may also want to add in stuff like Collected Company, Talara's Battalion, etc. if you want, you can take a look at my elf tribal, sELFish Nissa.
