Nice Build! I love Pauper decks. Have you though of trying Vitalize for extra creature-tap mana or Wirewood Pride to see if it ramps even faster?

Nice deck. I really enjoy the constraint of a genuine Pauper build. +1

As far as suggestions go, Vitalize and Wirewood Pride (I see you already have Timberwatch in there) are two commons that play extremely well with elves and common elf abilities (even in non-Pauper builds imo) and Ezuri's Archers is another great low-mana way to deal with flying, especially early on.

I'm not sure if Deathtouch or targeted destroy is a viable concern for this deck with its need (like most Elf decks) for multiple creatures in play to properly amp-up/combo, but if so both Withstand Death and Mortal's Resolve are decent Pauper options.

Thanks for comments Apollo_Paladin , appreciate it.

  1. I'm not big fan of Ambush Commander , as you said he is kinda mana heavy. He might be ok for sideboard to get with Living Wish but i cant think of case when i would want to search him.

  2. Jagged-Scar Archers sure should be in sideboard to deal with flying creatures. About Wirewood Pride , maybe. I personally rather have more elf's and faster ramp.

  3. Totally agree with Throne of the God-Pharaoh , i will add one to my deck.

  4. I think i have card draw handled, you suggested Sylvan Messenger , i have similar effect Lead the Stampede i was considering messengers but chose stampede instead because i have some non-elf creatures. And about Vanquisher's Banner instead i have Beast Whisperer , i think either will work but i prefer elf instead of artifact.

  1. Ambush Commander isn't terribly expensive dollar-wise (just over a buck last I knew), but he's a little heavy on mana cost. That's generally not an issue for an elf deck, particularly because I see you're running Priest of Titania and a bunch of other mana producers along with Vitalize which is one of my favorite cards ever in my elf deck.

  2. Jagged-Scar Archers is a good way to deal with flying, even if you just sideboard a couple ultimately, and Wirewood Pride is a very mana-efficient way to ramp up your damage early, or provide a surprise blocker for a big creature out of one of your 1/1's.

  3. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is an excellent and cheap way to add an alternate win condition to an elf deck; it's done stellar in mine since you can just tap your 1/1's for mana to deal damage rather than have them attack (even if you don't need to spend it).

  4. The only other thing I can suggest is some card-draw. Elf decks of this nature tend to speed through their hand fairly quickly. I use Sylvan Messenger and Vanquisher's Banner personally.

  5. You can check out my Legacy Elf deck entitled "Tae'rin Terror (Elf Zerg)" if you want some other neat options for elf synergy. It's not a "budget" deck, but there's no card in there over 6 or 7 dollars. Also, there are so many good elf cards that it's impossible to make determinations on the "best" for many cases, but I've had mine going for quite a few years now and it's continued to speed up. All about that Elf Count for the real craziness, imo. Hope this helps, giving a +1 on this deck either way just for using Vitalize ; that's one of the more overlooked ones it seems and I've been able to recommend that to quite a few elf decks in the past. Way to be on top of it!

Hotcake_Gotsyrup on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

the blue advantage was implied, im just saying that they are somewhat comparable, as good shell commanders for elfball. also marwyn has some good synergy cards that people may be looking over by looking at the elf part too much. some of the cards im about to list are sub optimal if you run too many, but show that she can generate decent value for pretty cheap: Aspect of Hydra, Aspect of Wolf, Berserk, Ivy Seer, Become Immense, Scent of Ivy, Strength in Numbers, Timberwatch Elf, War Dance, Wirewood Pride. now you shouldnt run too many of these because they are only one shot effects, but some of them add enough power to make up for that by making occasional big bursts of mana, and she is another umbral mantle/ parun abuser. i expect that her wins will be along the lines of huge pump spell> dorks> revelation> more dorks> craterhoof. i can easily see this being viable as tier 3. im gonna be brewing her soon anyway in hopes shes atleast respected as tier 3, she will be a good break from mairsil.

Excellent read as always. I still hate elves more though. Slivers are definitely really strong, and border on degenerate quite often. But nothing will ever tear away my nightmares of Wirewood Pride. Nothing. Even Sliver Legion isn't as terrifying as Wirewood Pride to me.

I think the biggest, most terrible Sliver that I refuse to even include in my own Sliver decks due to shear degeneracy is Magma Sliver. Shit's dumb.

I feel a bit strange when Wirewood Pride is not in an elf tribal deck.

Another way to get some damage dealt is Elvish Herder.
