This is an Elfball creature based storm deck that can win in a variety of ways. The most common way involves producing infinite mana and drawing my deck with Staff of Domination then killing the table with Shaman of the Pack and Cloudstone Curio.

Leo is without a doubt the best elf tribal commander due to being an aggressively costed elf with useful abilities in an overpowered color scheme. His synergies with wheels provide tons of fuel to pump out elves quickly while also disrupting opponents. Blue also provides a handful of good elves (i.e Edric, Spymaster of Trest, some nice tutors (i.e Mystical Tutor & Tezzeret the Seeker , and excellent interaction spells i.e Cyclonic Rift & Swan Song. Black's primary contribution to this deck is with tutors, but it also provides a nice finisher in Shaman of the Pack and mass recursion in Yawgmoth's Will.

While I don't anticipate this build ever being as competitive as my control build Oh, I'm Sorry....Did I break your concentration?, it has proven to be extremely explosive and offers several paths to victory that a traditional control/hand lock build does not have. This deck is also far less dependent on Leovold to win the game. Early testing is showing frequent turn 4-5 victories with hand locks easily occuring on turn 3 to 4. In spell slinging metas this deck can put tons of pressure on Ad Nauseam decks. Swinging with 4-5 elves on turn 3 is no joke.

While a more detailed deck description will come in the future there are a few elements that are essential to the deck:

My creatures have been chosen to maximize the effectiveness of Aluren , which is incredibly powerful in the right build and is absolutely stupid with Cloudstone Curio and etb elves like Elvish Visionary and Coiling Oracle.

Other enablers of note include Paradox Engine and Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . These cards can end the game quickly when combined with a handful of creatures (i.e Yisan, the Wanderer Bard).


Updates Add

I trimmed alot of fat from this build and incorporated paradox engine into the fold. I will likely tinker more in the near future but the deck is running faster and more smoothly. More fine tuning is needed but its a start.
