Unclaimed Territory Discussion
1 day ago
Thanks for your comment. I like Drover of the Mighty due to its helping me to ramp out my Red coloured cards, so he/she is staying. I used to play Unclaimed Territory in an earlier version of the deck, but I took it out as I could use some more non-colourless mana to spend on non-Angels. Board the Weatherlight is an interesting idea, maybe as a one-off. I'll try it in playtesting on Sunday.

Not sure that the Crushing Canopy in your sideboard is really doing you too many favors. Between the Viviens in you SB, and the 8 maindeck cards that can remove enchantments, it seems like you already have that base covered pretty well, and you have a ton of very powerful fliers beyond your removal. If you really feel like you need more, I'd swap them for 2 more copies of Knight of Autumn. Otherwise, you could add a few more Tocatli Honor Guard, as having a single copy will rarely make an impact vs. Golgari.
Second, you may want to consider swapping Drover of the Mighty for plain old Druid of the Cowls. They can't tap for any color, but they are more resilient to removal, which could be important versus red rush decks. Two other cards that might fit in here somewhere would be Board the Weatherlight, since most of your important creatures are in fact legendary, and Unclaimed Territory, naming angels. For example, in your maindeck, swapping the mountain for Unclaimed Territory would make it more versatile (though it also wouldn't be searchable). Still, it might fit if you adjust the lands a bit.

Here are a few cards I think you could consider for this deck Liliana's Mastery, Unclaimed Territory, Army of the Damned, From Under the Floorboards, Archfiend of Ifnir, Shadow of the Grave, Cryptbreaker, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and Commit / Memory.

Well, Naya will have the exact same problems as Selesnya does... Not enough resiliency, too difficult to recover.
There's too much efficient creature removal in Standard right now. Deafening Clarion/Ritual of Soot are too good at stopping Elves who aren't prepared to be able to recover quickly. Settle the Wreckage is nonexistent in current Standard even in Jeskai Control it's not the go to board wipe which is a big help for Elves. This allows for more options and I don't feel like I have to play Shalai.
Beast Whisperer is an option for resiliency (he's currently in the sideboard), but he's too fragile to count on him living. Find / Finality is the reason I'm now playing black and either card side is a mana sink for Grand Warlord Radha's ability to make mana. Find is also good with Whisperer as a way to recur it and another Elf. Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants just wasn't cutting it for recovery and his mana cost was actually too difficult to consistently make while also wanting to play Steel Leaf Champion. Flower did help, but relying on it is very problematic. Find can recur Champion this makes it pretty powerful with Elves.
Radha is the reason I'm now playing red again, but without having Stomping Ground limits the use of nonElf red spells I can play. Only Radha works thanks to Unclaimed Territory and Rootbound Crag. Adventurous Impulse and Glowspore Shaman also help to find Territory, but only 9 sources including Territory of red for Radha is pretty low--Stomping will for sure help. Radha's ramp is good with Vivien Reid and Vivien is excellent right now in Standard. Banefire (currently in the sideboard) is good with Radha as a mana sink, but I don't feel comfortable playing more Banefire when I'm realistically counting on Radha's ability to make red mana to cast it. More Banefire and Lava Coil/Fight with Fire are possible when we can play Stomping.
I played Radha with Elves for quite a while in Dominaria/M19 Standard and a big reason to continue to play her is the wonderful potential aggressive curve of Collector, Thorn, Champion, Radha. I have returned to playing this curve because turns out it's one of the best with current Elves; a turn one Collector can add a lot of power to this curve. The curve however needs something and I believe Find is what is needed. This curve can be disrupted, but it's difficult to completely stop everything.
Find is efficient recovery, get back two Elves that were killed and Radha's mana ability makes a potentially fast recovery. Thorn and Clancaller are excellent with Radha because they are Elves who can also be mana sinks. Territory is also a pretty powerful land with Elves; I want to take advantage of it since it alone lets me play other colored Elves and not have to worry as much about hurting the consistency of turn one Llanowar or casting Champion. Radha's four toughness survives Clarion and Soot doesn't kill Radha. This combined with her ability to make mana is very good with Elves right now.

I did try to include Unclaimed Territory in previous versions of this deck in variable numbers. The thing is, I don't have that many Dragons and having a colorless land was a downside having a Sarkhan, Fireblood in hand, for example. Also, between Sarkhan and the mana rocks in the deck, I think I have pretty good fixing for the Dragons. Also, I do intend to increase the number of Sulfur Falls as soon as I can, but despite that, the mana base is also pretty alright.
Even so, thanks a lot for commenting! I really appreciate it! :D

Maybe 1x Unclaimed Territory in the mainboard, taking out a Mountain?

Made some revisions to this. I took the blue out, evened out some of the mana costs, and Unclaimed Territory is now in here as well.
