Yavimaya Hollow Discussion
45 minutes ago
This is cool! The only card that's coming to my small brain atm is Yavimaya Hollow Other than that, maybe a about five too many plainswalkers. I'd replace them with some mana ramp or control type spells. Nice work. Coolest deck i've seen in a while.

True that Riding the Dilu Horse is one use, in so much as it's a sorcery and goes straight to the graveyard, but the effect doesn't go away at the end of the turn. It gives Omnath horsemanship until he leaves play, and that's what makes it a good card. Still, it is susceptible to the 2 for 1 effect I mentioned above and that's why I'm on the fence about adding it.
Opponents do try to keep Omnath off the battlefield for obvious reasons, but it's not Omnath I'm wanting to protect, with all the mana I'm generating, bringing him back out isn't really an issue. I tried going all in on the pillow fort plan with Omnath, but finally realized that it's not Omnath himself that I need to protect, but the mana he's hoarding. To that end, and the reason I don't have Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots in the deck, is to run cards like Yeva, Nature's Herald, Mirrorpool, Winding Canyons, Yavimaya Hollow, Savage Summoning and Vedalken Orrery in order to safeguard the mana. I do also have some pillow fort in the deck with Whispersilk Cloak, which unlike Lightning Greaves serves a dual purpose, as well as Heroic Intervention which can be flashed in when needed against either targeted removal or board wipes. The aforementioned Bear Umbra is also there to protect Omnath, as well as Akroma's Memorial and Sword of Feast and Famine each of which protect against two colors.
I can bring Riding the Dilu Horse back with Eternal Witness if all the stars line up, but that's very situational. I'm not really sold on the card, which is why I don't have one yet, but I do think it's a good card.

I'll do my best to suggest budget cards here, but maybe consider the following: Mind's Eye, Horn of Greed, Seer's Sundial, Skullclamp, Explosive Vegetation, Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Khalni Heart Expedition, Harrow, Sword of the Animist, Ashnod's Altar, Eldrazi Monument, Altar of Dementia, Hammer of Purphoros, Fervor, Ogre Battledriver, Xenagos, God of Revels, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Somberwald Sage, Rampaging Baloths, Defense of the Heart, Tooth and Nail, Triumph of the Hordes, Titania, Protector of Argoth, Ramunap Excavator, Green Sun's Zenith, Myriad Landscape, Command Beacon, Yavimaya Hollow and if you feel the need for added protection, Asceticism and Steely Resolve. I hope that some of this can be helpful for you. Again, good luck and give your opponents hell!

Thanks for the suggestions multimedia
you might be on to something with Regal Force, i'll have to do some play test with him.
not so sure about Eternal Witness. the card is no doubt extremely good, and can help by getting my Priest of Titania back ect. I'll keep it in mind when I tutor. If she were an elf it would be a no brainier, I've been in the fence for a while.
while Concordant Crossroads is a must include in 90% of elf decks, if it doesn't set you up to win, or win you the game that turn it will make it easier for my opponents to kill Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury. this is another card I've been on the fence about, and has been in the deck in previous iterations.
I've honestly never been a fan of Worldly Tutor, I should probably give it a chance though.
I completely agree with Cavern of Souls and it would be in the deck if not for the price :P.
Yavimaya Hollow is good but i'm not sure I'd be willing to take out Eldrazi Temple for it. Maybe it could replace Homeward Path since Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury can disenchant most attempts at stealing my creatures.
thanks! you've given me a lot to think about!

Hey, looks good, +1
Here's some suggestions:
- Regal Force can replace Shamanic Revelation because it's a creature; it can be tutored for with any number of creature tutors. Revelation can't be tutored for.
- Eternal Witness is missing. She's a staple in green decks because she's a creature she can be tutored for and is great with both Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest. She can replace Crushing Vines, Seeds of Innocence or Greenweaver Druid, much more impact.
- Concordant Crossroads has already been suggested. It lets you go nuts with mana Elves the turn it's played for only one mana. It can replace Crushing Vines, Seeds of Innocence or Search for Tomorrow. I don't think you need a land ramp spell here. If you can't suspend Search turn one it's completely lackluster for three mana. If you want a land ramp spell Nature's Lore is much better.
- Worldly Tutor can replace Crushing Vines, Seeds of Innocence or Primal Command. Primal is pretty mana expensive for what it does here because it doesn't put the creature you tutor for into play. At one mana instant Worldly can tutor for Priest of Titania or Ulamog that alone is worth it and seems much better for your strategy.
- Cavern of Souls and Yavimaya Hollow. I think these utility lands can replace the Eldrazi lands because you don't really need the cost reduction of the Eldrazi because mana is not a problem where as Cavern can protect Elves from counters and Yavimaya can protect a creature from removal or board wipe.
Good luck with your deck.

Is this intended to be a budget deck? If not, then cards like Batterskull, Darksteel Plate, and the new Hammer of Nazahn and Bloodforged Battle-Axe would be great additions here. I'm surprised that I'm not seeing Rancor in this list, since it's one of the most efficient green enchantments ever made. Also, 32 lands is not very much. I'd try and add in a few mana rocks like Sol Ring, Emerald Medallion, and Horn of Ramos along with a few more lands or ramp spells like Cultivate, Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth, or Kodama's Reach. Being a mono-colored deck, you can also afford a few more utility lands, like Rogue's Passage, Blighted Woodland, Yavimaya Hollow, Strip Mine, Myriad Landscape, Buried Ruin, Inventors' Fair, and Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers to name a few. Treetop Village can hold some equipment in a pinch if needed as well. A few card-drawing spells would also help like Harmonize or Staff of Nin for longer games.

Hello Profet93... thank you for your feedback.
I'm not a fan of Living Plane as it can't be tutored, and in my meta I'd rather a more controlling enchantment that would be needed dependant on board presence. Plus I have tutorable Kamahl and I'd still need Elesh out to make it work... so too much hassle with LP.
Academy Rector is one of my all time favourite cards, but alas in this deck I just can't justify him a spot. First he can't be tutored easily, and second, theres no guarantee I can kill him off without adding another card just for that purpose...
... which brings me onto Miren, the Moaning Well. This is a card I have considered in the past, and will look even more studiously at. Just for gaining that bit of life .... It's a card that always on my mind actually :)
And last but not least; Yavimaya Hollow. It used to be a staple in my deck, but to be honest I rarely used it, if ever..... especially since my meta is huge on exile and bounce.
