Introduction

I have broken down my Azusa's a Frenchie library in order to build my first true cEDH deck, under Selvala. For about 4 years Azusa, Lost but Seeking has been my go to deck and commander for fun games, but as my meta has evolved into competitive levels I've been forced to abandon my beloved Azusa, leaving her to wander Kamigawa again. She has been replaced by an elf who controls unimaginitivable power, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

The idea of this library is to ramp the entire deck onto the field as fast as possible. This deck threatens to win by turn 3 or 4 consistently.

I do this by playing big creatures to secure a lot of mana. This allows me to draw my library and put it on the field.

Strengths


  • This deck is FAST. It can quickly generate high numbers of mana allowing you to play everything in your hand, and hopefully draw into more cards to play in the process.
  • I'm rude, so I run eldrazis. They are strong and keep a presence. I view them as the perfect protection against mill libraries since they shuffle your graveyard back into your library.
  • there are several paths this deck can take to victory, it is far from a one trick pony.
  • This build can recover from loss of commander relatively easily.

Weaknesses


  • Being mono green, this deck lacks interaction.
  • This deck is commander reliant. It can be slowed with counters and removal. There are preventative measures and ways to recover, but it will slow the deck down, of course.
  • You will get targeted because no one likes playing against someone who can cheat out cards.
My infinite combos include:

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + Umbral Mantle with a 5 mana source.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + Staff of Domination with a 6 mana source. The staff combo is a lot stronger because it always allows me to gain infinite life, draw infinite cards, and play them all.

An interesting combo of Temur Sabertooth with Wirewood Symbiote and any 1 drop elf allows for an infinite mana combo as long as selvala and a 6 power creature are on the field.

(This combo takes a lot of cards, yes, but it is tutorable and gets around the Collector Ouphe and Null Rod players, which are rampant in my meta)

These are my resources that provide a consistent turn 2 Selvala, allowing my to begin ramping asap. Green is all about mana control.

Arbor Elf
Birds of Paradise
Elvish Mystic
Elvish Spirit Guide
Fyndhorn Elves
Llanowar Elves
Carpet of Flowers
Utopia Sprawl
Wild Growth
Lotus Petal
Mox Diamond
Chrome Mox
Mana Crypt
Sol Ring
Gemstone Caverns

These cards untap Selvala, which causes her ability to be spammed for ridiculous amounts of mana. Very strong with a big creature on the battlefield.
Quirion Ranger
Scryb Ranger
Wirewood Symbiote
Great Oak Guardian
Benefactor's Draught
Vitalize
Staff of Domination
Umbral Mantle
Wirewood Lodge
These cards allow me to draw cards, then draw more cards, then draw again until I have the exact cards I need to combo out with infinite mana and place my entire library on the field.

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
Regal Force
Benefactor's Draught
Momentous Fall
Staff of Domination
Greater Good
Sylvan Library
Garruk, Primal Hunter
Harmonize
Life's Legacy
Rishkar's Expertise
Shamanic Revelation
Soul's Majesty
Veil of Summer
Kenrith's Transformation

These cards allow me to tutor up what creatures are vital for me to win. Searching for your needs is always nice!
Woodland Bellower
Fierce Empath
Chord of Calling
Shared Summons
Summoner's Pact
Survival of the Fittest
Eldritch Evolution
Green Sun's Zenith
Primal Command
Tooth and Nail
In the early game, the most important thing you can do is secure fast mana and fat creatures. There are several ways to do this. Here are the creatures I would like to have one of in an opening hand in order to secure a fast board presence:
Phyrexian Dreadnought
Phyrexian Soulgorger
Rhonas the Indomitable
Lupine Prototype
Sheltering Ancient
After acquiring a decent mana source (even if it's just there for that one turn like with Phyrexian Dreadnought) I need something to do it with. I prefer to either draw a lot of cards to set up my combo, play a large creature to secure more consistent big mana, or both.

My preferred cards to play off a 10-12 mana turn include:
Temur Sabertooth
Tooth and Nail
Genesis Wave
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
Natural Order
Rishkar's Expertise
Regal Force
Shared Summons (sets up combos)
Or the Staff of Domination combo

More often than not playing one or more of these cards in a turn will lead into a cascading effect of drawing cards, obtaining more mana, and playing more cards until the I secure a win, preferably on turn 3.

All the foils that I don't have already.
Why does foil survival of the fittest have to be so damn expensive!?
