Immaculate Magistrate would be awesome with Joraga Warcaller because it basically turns him into a Coat of Arms that stacks each time you tap the magistrate. Eladamri, Lord of Leaves could be sweet for the protection etc... or just sideboard in for either protection or the forestwalk bonus as well! There's also Heedless One , Drove of Elves , and Jagged-Scar Archers for big creatures. Revenge of the Hunted would be sweet in here as well. Lastly, I would switch out the Elvish Pioneer s and Rampant Growth s for Sylvan Ranger s and Wood Elves , or even Fyndhorn Elves , but that's just me.
Sorry I know that's a lot of info. You can look at the elves I use in my EDH deck too for ideas if you want: Nath's Wrath
@Commander Fun Great ideas! I'm not too keen on Heedless One , as I've used her before. I mainly use Drove of Elves because of their other ability. I might consider Eladamri, Lord of Leaves , but I probably won't use him, as it is probably a pain acquiring him, besides, Drove of Elves does almost the same thing. Jagged-Scar Archers might be good against flying, which I almost never encounter. Sideboard, maybe. Sylvan Ranger and Wood Elves are slower/more expensive than my Elvish Pioneer s and Rampant Growth s, but I still might consider the Wood Elves .
Thanks for great input. That EDH deck looked sweet.
@UmbrotheUmbreon I liked your deck. Nice. I think I need Nissa Revane
It's great to have your own take and I don't mean to criticise the deck unduly, but looking at it overall it is weak for a Legacy elf. It is missing several cards that are much better at generating huge amounts of mana and killing than the current options. It also lacks reliable and decent card drawing which is vital in an elf deck as they burn out very quickly:
Priest of Titania - Self explanatory.
Quirion Ranger - Untaps a creature without being affected by summoning sickness and in decks with low land counts (which an elf deck should be) can make 2 mana from 1 forest.
Wirewood Symbiote - Again untaps a creature without being affected by summoning sickness and can be used to rescue elves. Also combines with Elvish Visionary to provide a mini-draw engine, which as mentioned before elf decks seriously need.
Glimpse of Nature - With cheap elves and instantaneous mana generation this will often draw and play everything in a well constructed deck.
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn - Kills without needing haste, is unstoppable and is readily affordable with elves.
Elf decks are vulnerable to burn and creature removal so the reliable ones are explosive and go from very little to everything in one turn. I would suggest your current set-up would lose every match up with burn because your only win strategy is heavily dependant upon creature based mana generation and is too slow to outrun it.
Hope this gives some food for thought. I have a Legacy elf deck on my profile, which could probably be improved but I'm happy how it is. Try it out in Playtest and it might give a better idea of how some of the combos I've mentioned fit together.
