Modern Elf Ball(ish)


KorApprentice Score: 5


It's not quite as explosive as the Legacy Elf Ball, but it can pack a punch. Rather than Glimpse of Nature , I use Regal Force and Slate of Ancestry to fuel a massive draw, then use Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel s to drop a high number of elves or an Emrakul. Obviously Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is the finisher. This is still a work in progress in the testing stages, so any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Brain FreezeMTG Card: Brain Freeze! it's in your colours, you can easily play 15 or more spells in one turn, and provides you with an alt win con. failing that, the trusty Coat of ArmsMTG Card: Coat of Arms will help your elves survive a PyroclasmMTG Card: Pyroclasm or other burn spell. With the amount of draw you have, you'll only need one copy of each in the deck.

one more thing... if you're playing against an opponent with board wipes such as Wrath of GodMTG Card: Wrath of God, sideboard in Caller of the ClawMTG Card: Caller of the Claw. nothing beats the look on their faces when you slap it down after they think they've just hosed your deck.

This is a Modern deck, so Brain FreezeMTG Card: Brain Freeze and Caller of the ClawMTG Card: Caller of the Claw are not legal, but I will try playing 1x Coat of ArmsMTG Card: Coat of Arms and see how it does. Thanks for the suggestion!

Apologies, it says legacy for some reason next to your deck title?!

Many Modern legal cards are marked as only being Legacy legal. The admins are working towards fixing this problem from what I have heard.

I would take out the blue splash actually. Regal force just seems like a better draw engine, and you can fetch it up with summoner's pact, along with any other combo piece you would need. All the hinterland harbors do is lower the efficiency of your elves that rely on doing things to forests.

I understand the argument with Regal ForceMTG Card: Regal Force, but the mana production for Modern elves is nowhere near as great as Legacy elves, so I'm worried that it will take too long to get the draw going with such an expensive draw engine. I think that I will play test him as a 1 of with a few Chord of CallingMTG Card: Chord of Callings, but I want to keep Distant MelodyMTG Card: Distant Melody. The blue is extremely easy to splash for in this deck and the only cards I use that relies on an actual forest is Arbor ElfMTG Card: Arbor Elf and Scryb RangerMTG Card: Scryb Ranger. You never open with Hinterland HarborMTG Card: Hinterland Harbor, so you will always have at least 1 forest.

The trouble is that you are dedicating 6 cards to be able to play 4 cards that could be replaced by other cards. You would actually change 10 cards in your deck to improve them if you didn't play with distant melody.

I'll switch Distant MelodyMTG Card: Distant Melody for Chord of CallingMTG Card: Chord of Calling and Joiner AdeptMTG Card: Joiner Adept for Regal ForceMTG Card: Regal Force and see how it plays. Thanks for the suggestions!
