Wirewood Elf Discussion

Inkmoth on Nylea, Shoot for the Stars (cEDH)

GrizzlyAtom: Just wanted to say that I absolutely loved the list! Safe to say you hit the nail on the head on almost all of your choices. However, I do highly recommend you make a couple of changes for the general consistency of the deck.

These won't be direct swaps to the cuts and more of a series of cards that you should highly consider as I don't want to cramp your style.

I hope this helps, I love the deck, will be keeping up with it. Final recommendation would be to use a similar categorization that I used in Yeva for your list as it helps you visualize your deck based off function and see where it is lacking.

Why are you playing Vivid Grove and Joiner Adept in your Mono-Green deck? Elvish Piper doesn't seem to do much in a deck that has so much ramp and no expensive creatures.

Some recommendations that jump out at me are

Cut Joiner Adept, Elvish Piper, Wirewood Elf, Creeping Mold, Chorus of Might, Vivid Grove

Add Priest of Titania, Copperhorn Scout, Arbor Elf, Beast Within, Beastmaster Ascension, Mosswort Bridge

The Channeler Initiate and Drover of the Mighty are in because this list is super super light on lands, which means that we need to make up for it in some of the nonland ramp. Tapping for multiple colors is more important here than the elf typing, though I might add in things like Wirewood Elf and Leaf Gilder sometime.

The Elvish Visionary change is actually somewhat recent, and I haven't updated it here yet. As it stands, since we have Heart Warden as our wincon of choice, I'd probably swap out Elvish Visionary for another ramp piece.

Lys Alana Huntmaster was the old Hackball wincon before we discovered Phantasmal Image, It's cheaper, and thus might be fine if you can't afford Phantasmal, but I'd greatly prefer Phantasmal Image due to its usefulness earlier in the combo turn. If you can't afford Phantasmal, a better option might be Altered Ego.

Finally, the 3 mana ramp pieces like Elvish Guidance and Elvish Archdruid aren't in because our 5 mana need can be met with 2 dorks and 3 lands. This means stuff like a 1cmc dork plus a 2cmc dork, plus 3 lands, would get us to 5 mana just as easily as a 1cmc dork and Marwyn, for instance. Thus, this list will stick to the cheaper forms of ramp, since they add up easier.

I'm trying out this deck to get a hang of cEDH, great job!

That said, why do you run Channeler Initiate and Drover of the Mighty instead of generic 1G elf dorks, like Wirewood Elf, Leaf Gilder and Druid of the Cowl? They tap for Heritage Druid.

Also, I have a few ideas to keep this budget but functional. (None of them has been tested, since I'm waiting for the cards to arrive)

Elvish Pioneer, Wood Elves and Llanowar Scout, to land-ramp while proccing Heritage.

Coiling Oracle, you said in the primer that he and Elvish Visionary weren't good enought, but since visionary end up here, he may be worth trying.

Elvish Guidance and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , for some craddle effects to abuse with Arbor Elf and Kiora's Follower. (Maybe not rites, as it only flips at the end step)

Lys Alana Huntmaster, at least while I can't get Phantasmal Image.

And maybe Marwyn, the Nurturer, to try and cast her before momir, and feed her enought elves to go big.

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.

Necronami, great Elf deck. For a first attempt this is a very well put together list, good job, +1. By the way I found this deck via the featured deck ad the top of the site.

I have a few suggestions of cards for you to consider:

Cards that are the weakest in my opinion:

An interesting, but I admit I haven't played with it yet in Commander for you to consider is the synergy of +1/+1 counters with Elves using a package of Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Metallic Mimic, Bramblewood Paragon, Immaculate Magistrate, Joraga Warcaller and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar.

Good luck with your deck.

Saw the update, i'll make a few more comments. As you request I won't hold back and put out everything that comes to mind. Do know though that I think it's a decent start, especially if you are making this with what cards you already have. I'll point out all the POTENTIAL shortcomings, these might not always be relevant or something easy to fix. I am not tying to be harsh, again good job.

Deck strikes me as having the possibility of being inconsistent as most of the cards are either 1 ofs or 2 ofs. The more of any given card you have, the more likely you are to draw that card. Having one ugin means you won't see it that often. It's also important to have multiple copies of manadorks as you want to have them in play as soon as possible.

Decimator Web: cool card, but way too slow unless you want to build around it.

Druid of the Cowl/Wirewood Elf: 1 mana cost accelerants are good. After that unless they can produce multiple mana i'm not a huge fan. I would replace these with other mana accelerants when you can.

20 land strikes me as a bit low. Generally speaking in a 20 land deck you would have significantly more mana accelerants than you have currently or have your highest spell cost 4ish mana. I'd add some more lands

Lost Legacy is more of a sideboard card. Even then you have better options to deal with 1 particular card.

From Under the Floorboards without ways to madness it, this is questionable

Without instans or flash cards Seedborn Muse loses value

Mire Boa you already have enough cheap blockers this can be cut.

Kavu Predator without your opponents gaining life this is ok but not great.

I think you need some card draw to round this deck out

BalorOneEye on Ezuri, Claw of Craterhoof

3 years ago


Cut Invisible Stalker for Looter il-Kor

Also practically unblock-able and Loots.

Cut Brawn for Wonder

Flying > Trample

Cut Solemn Simulacrum for Bident of Thassa

Green decks don't need Solemn. Bident draws way more cards.

Cut Sakura-Tribe Elder for Devoted Druid

Elder fits better in a reanimate game. Devoted druid is crazy with ezuri.

Cut Thought Vessel for Cryptolith Rite

you really don't need the vessel and rites turns all your tokens into mana. (i would suggest earthcraft but thats not very budget friendly)

cut Nylea, God of the Hunt for Trinket Mage

Nylea doesn't trigger Ezuri. Mage gets skullclamp.

Cut Selvala's Stampede for Sol Ring

Why aren't you running sol ring!?!?!?!?!

Cut Overwhelming Stampede for Whisperwood Elemental

You have enough wincons. Not enough ways to protect your creatures. Elemental is insane to safe your board and generate card advantage + ezuri triggers

Cut Patagia Viper for Caller of the Claw

Board wipe protection and generates more guys.

Cut Acidic Slime for Wickerbough Elder

this is repeatable in your deck

Cut Rapid Hybridization for Counterspell

you care less about creatures than you do about spells

Cut Mulldrifter for Mindless Automaton

turns counters into cards instead drawing once.

Cut Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for Cyclonic Rift

Nissa is just oke. Rift is a necessity.

Cut Elvish Visionary for Evolutionary Leap

visionary is just an underperformer. Leap is great card draw/advantage and can used to get some value out of your guys when the board gets wiped.

Cut Coiling Oracle for Glen Elendra Archmage

the only expensive(ish) card you really need.

Cut Imperious Perfect for Life's Legacy

Perfect is hard to cut but every creature based card draw is just great in this deck

Cut Halimar Depths and Treetop Village for any land that produces and

preferably lands that come in untapped. for example City of Brass and Mana Confluence

Cut Wirewood Elf for Hardened Scales

an underperformer for a powerhouse
