Talara's Battalion Discussion

After looking at your deck, this aggro approach seems very doable and nasty, but theres a handful of cards I see that just shouldn't be included. Nature's Spiral is just a worse Regrowth, so that's a start. I see with all of the artifact removal that stax is an issue for you. Bane of Progress is a great addition to solve this, but i would take out one of your removal spells for Nature's Claim. You don't care about their life gain when elves can smash for 100+ damage. Another great way to give a stax deck the middle finger is Creeping Corrosion. The card rarely hurts you and gives them a hell of a time. Krosan Grip is a fantastic card that also helps in this situation. For these 3 excuses to shit on rocks, I'd at least take out Sundering Vitae and Natural End. Nullmage Shepherd is a fantastic elf to throw in your deck to solve this issue as well. Hum of the Radix is also a fun little card for artifact decks that no one will expect you to drop. If you need enchantment removal, just throw in Back to Nature and you'll be fine. If you're having a hard time with killing creatures, run Taunting Elf, or just run it anyways if you can regenerate it and hit people for free every turn. Aluren will help your elfball rolling, and running Primal Rage will help make sure that even when Ezuri is gone that you get your damage through. Talara's Battalion was a cool card I experimented with in my deck, and it did quite a bit of damage. I would definitely include Marwyn for her beefy presence and massive mana ramp. Something like Predator's Rapport is just not useful, as gaining life tends to be some of the most useless magic cards unless you're running a deck that focuses on it. Instead I would try to tutor for a card like Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Nissa Revane, Wellwisher, or Essence Warden which help a lot more with solving this problem. Triumph of the Hordes is a great meme to drop on your opponents in a tough situation, as it gives you a nice little one shot, or at least eats through indestructibly and "prevent all damage" creatures. Most of the artifacts you run arent necessary, so I would just replace them with lands. While you have an extremely low mana curve, 28 lands is very dangerous with no rocks. Unless you add some very fancy $$$ rocks (which if you dont wanna drop 1k on artifacts), I would just run some more forests. Primal Order was a neat card I haven't seen in a while, and I think that can prove very useful in your deck if you're having a hard time getting through to other opponents running decks with multiple colors. If you want to stick with the aggro theme, I would add a Coat of Arms, since by the time you hit turn five you'll have about 4-5 elves, and this can turn 7 damage into 50. The risk of helping your opponents is worth it. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is actually insane in this deck, and if your opponent draws a card or two off of it, nobody is gonna care. She can give you a ridiculous amount of mana with Ezuri pumps and elves like Drove of Elves. Concordant Crossroads is an absolute necessity if your goal is aggro. This card hurts sometimes, especially if your opponent has a creature-heavy deck. The payoff is huge though when you drop mana dorks with haste or drop your hand on the field, tap your Priest of Titania for a crazy amount, and have Ezuri pummel everyone with your hasty elves. As for mana doublers, you can run whatever you'd like, although I would say you don't need any of them for the deck to work: they're just a waste of a turn. Over all the others, I would run Mana Reflection so that your elves can tap for double as well as anything else. Overall, this deck is pretty solid, and with a few tweaks it could be an unstoppable force! Let me know if you need any other suggestions on anything else (:

FiendishElf, really good input on the new set. All three of those cards slotted their way into my elves due to their overwhelming power. Talara's Battalion used to be a good, cheap fatty, but now Steel Leaf Champion overwhelms that by forcing your opponents to get chunked or lose powerful board pieces, given anything with more than 2 power is usually useful. Marwyn, the Nurturer is almost good enough to replace Ezuri, but will remain as part of the 99. Song of Freyalise is a nice addition for elves, as it acts like a second Cryptolith Rite. Rishkar, Peema Renegade is definitely a good card, but I don'r run it due to my own opinion. I think that his ability is weak unless you throw counters on anything, and the Song coming out with him is such a minute possibility that I don't think it's worth it. Thanks for the tips!

I actually like the nissa revane and chosen as spice here! Id really only run 1 of them though as youll almost always get them back. Have you tried Talara's Battalion at all? She can put in a lot of work with co-co. Youre almost always going to want to hit shaman of the pack, but talara can put alot of pressure early. I think you should also toss your ETB tapped lands.

Vines of vastwood can be used on an opponents creatures to keep them from equipping or otherwise buffing it and protects/buffs your tramplers when attacking. Great card. What if I added more Talara's Battalion? She works well with multiple Rancor and 1 drop buff spells...The problem I'm having with building this is how many possible cards fit in it and deciding their pros/cons.

Cool take on the revolt zoo decks. I like the addition of white, gives a much stronger sideboard, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a cool addition.
