Timberwatch Elf Discussion

I used to play a lot of Elves back when I used to play regularly (back around Lorwyn), and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things running mono-green elves on a relative budget (between 20-30 dollars). Would anyone mind taking a look at this deck and giving me some suggestions for cards I can get relatively cheap to make the deck Modern legal?

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves may be problematic since you have cards like Immaculate Magistrate, Timberwatch Elf, Asceticism, Presence of Gond and more that all need targets, and since all elves have shroud, you can't target them.

Cards i would cut:- Defiant Elf- Elvish Herder- Elvish Pioneer- Elvish Soultiller- Gamekeeper- Heedless One- Realm Seekers- Skyshroud Ranger- Winnower Patrol- Wren's Run Vanquisher- Timberwatch Elf- Elven Fortress- Fog- Counterspell- Second Wind
Hey bud, The deck overall looks fairly fun to pilot, but i think it may run into some small issues. The "Tap" Theme is always one i have been super interested in. In fact, I have built a hand full of tap decks myself. I think your issue is, neither of you generals tap themselves. Therefore more slots need to be dedicated to finding the true commander of your deck Priest of Titania, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Wirewood Channeler, and Elvish Archdruid. You might have enough redundancy to find at least 1-2 per game, but if you lose one or unfortunately don't draw one, you might have a few dead cards in hand. I think with the heavy investment in tap, you should either consider creature tutors, or big draw (which has synergism with your mana).
Regardless what you do, i am sure it will be awesome though!

Oops, I just noticed that you have a problem with your Presence of Gond on Nettle Sentinel combo. It doesn't work. The Nettle Sentinel works on casting a green spell. Not when a green creature enters the battlefield. The token entering the field will not untap the Sentinel. The activated ability of the Sentinel does not count as a spell.
I use the Wirewood Hivemaster years ago, before the Lorwyn block got printed and I've just left him in. I also like his interaction with the Wirewood Symbiote and Elvish Visionary. Using the Symbiote to bounce the Visionary and untapping a Wellwisher or Timberwatch Elf is pretty fun.

I got some of these ideas from here for reference: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-elves-24395#paper
I have some of the Spidersilk Armors I think too.

Some cards to help you

Have you considered trying to introduce your group to Pauper? It's a format with an established metagame, it can be played competitively, it's skill-intensive, allows you to do some pretty powerful stuff (Gush, Preordain, Mulldrifter, Fireblast and Timberwatch Elf are all legal in this format) and decks usually run between 20 and 40$.
I will admit that I come from a vantage point where both me and my usual competition will have spent however much money is necessary to have an established deck in the format, so these dynamics of casual play are somewhat alien to me. But if you want that sort of competitive-like experience - i.e. everybody has one of the best decks in the format and tries to learn all their in and outs - maybe you can look into the cheapest format of them all.
