Time of Need Discussion

Suns_Champion on Captain Sisay's Engine Chain Extravaganza

What I like: I like the little elf sub theme and I like the combo; though I admit I'm not a combo player by any means!

Some suggestions to put in:

Have you considered any plainswalkers? the new rule the Ixalan started makes them all legendaries, thus tutorable.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion(I'm biased, okay?) or a Garruk could help you out...

Time of Need perhaps?

Grand Abolisher will stop anyone from messing with you on your turn.

Some to take out:

How's Land Grant working for you? I feel like there's better ways to ramp in these colors, and revealing your hand can lose you the game sometimes.

Doesn't Kataki, War's Wage kinda.. hurt you a lot too?

Hope some of this helps!

slayingmatt1234 appreciate the thoughts! The reason why I have Sundering Growth is for the possibility of creating an additional 8/8 token that I can get from Grove of the Guardian. I do like the idea of switching out Rebuff the Wicked for Gods Willing. I did have a Nylea, God of the Hunt in here originally, but only having one didn't make much sense to me since the probability of drawing it was pretty slim. I thought about either putting 2 in or getting a couple Time of Need but had other cards I wanted in the deck so I kind of scraped that idea.

I am intrigued about taking out 2 Knight of New Alara for 2 more Wilt-Leaf Liege. I am also considering adding Swords to Plowshares, just trying to keep the deck at 60 cards so need to work some stuff in while leaving other stuff out.

Epic deck though. Maybe 4 Time of Need to get the combo with Maralen of the Mornsong and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

Another tutor option if you randomly need it could be Academy Rector, but without a reliable way to get him off like Animal Boneyard, probably not worth the time. There's also Time of Need and Chord of Calling.
Land Tax is great for ramp, though I'm sure it's already been recommended. Primal Growth is also an option, as is Traverse the Ulvenwald
Spectra Ward is nice, though the cost is probably prohibitive for this deck. Speaking of costs, Herald of the Pantheon could help, though the build wouldn't leverage it that well. If against high defense that Sigarda can't break, Bonds of Mortality could be another option besides the exile you already run.
If against high destruction, there's always Karmic Justice, but that probably will never be necessary in duel. Another possible bit of extra insurance, is Greater Auramancy. I know you mentioned countering as a concern. Prowling Serpopard might be a good response.
Only other thing that comes to mind is Nature's Will
Really nice deck!

3 Time of Need for both angels and Verdant Haven and Khalni Heart Expedition with Harrow would help get that land out

If you use legendary creatures as fatties (i.e. the kamigawa dragons Ryusei, the Falling Star, Jugan, the Rising Star...) you can use Time of Need as a pretty cheap tutor.

Prophet93 Although that looks like a very fun EDH deck, I'm building a modern deck. However, I have heard of people doing a creature toolbox with Time of Need...

Shane Yes, that deck is defintely expensive, but it will help me as a shell. Thanks!

Good idea to use 1- and 2-ofs alongside Time of Need, I wouldn't have thought of that!
