Deck Philosophy:

The focus of this deck is permanents, specifically creatures. This is to maximize the effect of Genesis Wave or Primal Surge.

Cards like Yeva, Nature's Herald, Vedalken Orrery, and Winding Canyons allow for end of turn creature plays to get around summoning sickness.

Mana dorks Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Joraga Treespeaker, and Fyndhorn Elves allow for early game acceleration.

Civic Wayfinder, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Wood Elves, Sylvan Ranger, Quirion Ranger, and Farhaven Elf take the place of effects like Kodama's Reach and Cultivate since they are more easily abused; a notable exception is Skyshroud Claim since it does not have the same downsides.

Card Draw:

Sylvan Library, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Regal Force, Elvish Visionary, Staff of Nin, Harmonize, Nissa, Sage Animist  Flip, and Masked Admirers

Infinite Combo:

Cloudstone Curio + Aluren + 3CMC or less ETB Creature + 3CMC or less creature

I can say just by only reading the Planeswalker, who ever goes against this deck, will die very soon.

w00t another Ezuri EDH, I have one too :-) if you need ideas. Good luck with the deck although I warn you people tend not to like you when you can kill a player a turn via overrunning...

Nice! I have an elf EDH too using Nath of the Gilt-Leaf as a commander... LOVE it! A couple of ideas: Immaculate Magistrate + Joraga Warcaller works a lot like a Coat of Arms . I found that I liked Viridian Shaman more than Viridian Zealot , especially with a Wirewood Symbiote out in play to use it over and over. Also, I found also that my power increased a lot when I added Quest for Renewal for the untap mechanics. one use of Nullmage Shepherd activates it, and then my opponents are loosing an artifact and enchantment during each of their turns... so that was fun. Love the deck! let me know what you think of mine! (Nath's Wrath)

I suggest adding Primitive Etchings to this deck, it's really good card draw.

It certainly works with the tribal theme of the deck, but is excluded because it's too slow. I have to build Door of Destinies up before it's useful, even though it affects only my creatures. I can drop a Coat of Arms and get instant value of it; yes it affects my opponents but I'm usually the one to maximize on the effect. I could even potentially flash Coat of Arms in with Vedalken Orrery.
