House Llanowar, Power and Speed

At long last the new Commander Decks are here! And especially the Green one!!! I was waiting for Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury since the day I read her story. A true Goddess of the Elves, she deserves a powerful deck based on her loyals. So this deck is based on my favourite mythical race of humanoids, the elves!!! The strategy I prefer to use is called ''BOMB'', or I just call it like this. It's simple and it's based on synergies and not on combos for instant win, cause I can test my decks full potential that way. It's usage is also very simple: gather your forces and then with a final addition, destroy ALL of your opponents OR most of them in one blow, leaving the rest helpless to your might!

Since this deck is one of my elder decks that still remains untouched I decided to make it really powerful! So actually, this deck is made to be able to win in ALMOST every situation!!!

For example: Due to their speed the elves are really fast reaching huge numbers on the battlefield, so that means there are going to be many mass removals!

I tried to utilize cards like Creeping Renaissance and the two Eldrazi Titans Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. This way I can have my army back in action really soon cause the deck has draw power that rivals even mono-blue with cards like Collective Unconscious, Lifecrafter's Bestiary etc.

Not to mention the huge amounts of mana due to creatures like Priest of Titania etc. Also due to the two Eldrazi I can avoid getting milled!

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is here cause he is a semi-removal and is used in difficult situations with indestructible creatures OR hexproof creatures/enchantments.

S Y N E R G I E S:

1) Any huge amount of elves + Coat of Arms = Massive and great amounts of damage! This is the basic synergy and all the others are made to complete this one

2) Synergy_1 + Akroma's Memorial = Almost unblockable damage with vigilance to keep my Hit Points safe

3) Synergy_1 + Triumph of the Hordes = Almost instant win with the infect ability

4) Synergy_1 + Craterhoof Behemoth = D A M A G E

5) Gilt-Leaf Archdruid + Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury = For sure a player will lose his lands!!!

6) Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury + Ugin's Nexus = Nexus fitted like a cat in a box... an extra turn for a mono green deck... PERFECT!!!


Any suggestion and votes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

Well if you read her story, she became something LIKE a Goddess for the Elves Of Llanowar. Also giving her life to protect her whole tribe in Dominaria and participating as one of the Nine Titans at the war versus Yawgmoth and Phyrexia makes her pretty Godlike to me :)

seems like a deck i'd like to play myself. so gz for doing a good job.but what about green sun's zenith?how could you possibly ever forget that card in a green deck?

Well.... I didn't forget it I just dont have it XD

Eldrazi Monument + any token producing permanent, (like freylise) = win. i run it in my freylise deck

December 28, 2014 9:03 p.m.

Did you think about Khalni Hydra. She could entering the battlefield for 1 or 2 mana most of the time, maybe even for free. Would be a great addition to the deck with Green Sun's Zenith i guess.

December 29, 2014 9:30 a.m.

I can second Eldrazi Monument's extreme usefulness, it is definitely a great card to add to any token creator deck. I have also found Burgeoning pretty useful as well as Earthcraft and Mirri's Guile.

(My apologies if I have mentioned any of these before :D)

December 30, 2014 1:31 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #8

I see all these cards are trully usefull! Exept mayber Mirri's Guile. I have Sensei's Divining Top for that job

December 30, 2014 4:09 a.m.

Azami says... #9

Why not Zoidberg.... i mean Nissa Revane and her Nissa's Chosen. Great with Eldrazi Monument and her second + is a realy nice vs aggro. Her Ultimate is a killer, also great with the Monument!

December 30, 2014 8:20 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #10

I know and this is why I keep all your suggestions in the maybeboard list. Because its like a small whishlist to get

Ulturas says... #11

Door of Destinies seems a better choice over Coat of Arms imo also cheaper cost, against other aggro decks (specifically goblin, sliver etc) you just end up buffing their creatures to match your firepower anyway Adaptive Automaton also another great card for buffing specifics. With that said though Elvish Piper could definitely be interesting with this deck turn 3/4 Kozilek or other interesting fatties ;).

NEW UPDATES!!!! Thanks everyone for your advice!!

January 24, 2015 8:27 a.m.

Unless i have missed something, you can cut down a bit on the number of basics in the deck. Pendelhaven produces green mana on turn 1, you have loads of 1/1s in the deck, win/win.

Think about the benefits of adding a few effect-lands like Strip Mine or similar, Mystifying Maze , Buried Ruin , Wirewood Lodge and Yavimaya Hollow even if they cant produce green mana. Maybe even Crop Rotation since its instant and can be used in response to whatever.

Alternatively you can replace the forests with Snow-Covered Forests and add Scrying Sheets.

Im gonna mention Gaea's Cradle as a note here aswell, but since it costs your left arm Im not going to expect anyone to aquire it, but its really good in this kind of deck.

January 26, 2015 2:26 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #14

Wirewood Lodge would be a great addition in my deck thanks for the advice! The others though... not so much.. with Gaea's Cradle being expensive as hell is a hard addition right now.Scrying Sheets is useless since I got Sensei's Divining Top. The last interesting land is Yavimaya Hollow, a very nice land! As for the others I don't really need them and I already got some of them. Crop Rotation is also a good choice!!! Thanks again!

January 26, 2015 3:52 a.m.

I guess what utility-lands you need, boils down to what meta you play :)

However i dont understand why Sensei's Divining Top makes Scrying Sheets useless? on the contrary what i see is 1 extra card drawn each turn, provided both are out. And 1 extra card drawn almost every third turn (on average) even if you dont have the top out.

January 26, 2015 4:58 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #16

The problem with Scrying Sheets is that all I will draw are lands! It says if the card is snow I reveal it and put it to my hand. So the only cards I will have with snow will be my lands. This is why I think its kinda useless...

January 26, 2015 5:13 a.m.

look at it this way instead:

early game you need land, extra land is good. It does not interfere with your regular 1 card draw per turn, its just extra land in the hand.

late game you dont need land, now you are minimizing the risk of your regular 1 card draw to be a land. Since you can filter the lands into your hand before your regular 1 card draw.

Now i know Top kinda does the same, but these 2 cards have a great synergy so nothing is wasted by drawing both.

The only drawback of sheets in monocolor is the 2 mana you need to activate it, and the cash you need to get snow-covered basics. imo ofc.

January 26, 2015 5:46 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #18

Trully they are expensive...

January 26, 2015 10:44 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #20

Thanks for your advice man! The cards I am interested in are already in my maybeboard aka. my wishlist!

Aethaleon says... #21

If you do want to get Karametra's Acolyte, I recommend the new version. Karametra's Acolyte

January 27, 2015 6:17 a.m.

Aethaleon says... #22

One last card for consideration would be Riftsweeper. Leave it to the elves to have the power to return a card from exile into your library.

January 27, 2015 6:22 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #23

Hmmmmmm..... Praetor's Counsel twice in a game eh??!?!? COOL!!!

January 27, 2015 6:31 a.m.

Aethaleon says... #24

Yeah, and it can potentially make your deck somewhat mill proof or board wipe proof when you can play powerful cards like that multiple times that require you to exile them afterward. Also, even though you do have Praetor's Counsel, I would also recommend that you add a Reliquary Tower and an Expedition Map, just to be on the safe side.

January 27, 2015 7:16 a.m.

Glimpse of nature

February 10, 2015 1:56 p.m.
February 10, 2015 1:57 p.m.

Copperhorn Scout would be good with Glimpse of Nature and all the elves that tap or even any creature that you tap or attack with. Archetype of Endurance is just a stupid card to have because of the hexproof removal.

February 10, 2015 2:08 p.m.

KingMetalink says... #28

A few things concerning what tattoosarebeauti said. First of all, Glimpse of Nature is decent, but not amazing. Copperhorn Scout isn't all that great though, and it doesn't combo with Glimpse of Nature. Finally, Archetype of Endurance is actually a really good card, and can only be beaten by a few lands or artifacts, or board wipes and forced-sac.

February 11, 2015 12:35 a.m.

Hakuryu says... #29

Indeed exept Archetype of Endurance I don't really like the other two cards. Thanks both for the advice!!!

Krob86 says... #30

I switched to using Omnath, Locus of Mana as my commander. I loved th deck at first with the default commander in place but I found her to be more of a support card than a build around card. I still play Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury in the deck but I found her five cost was too high to keep recasting dealing with flying enemies. Is a great commander if you aren't doing one on one commander play.

February 12, 2015 4:27 a.m.

Riftsweeper + Wirewood Symbiote a nice little combo there...I'd definitely recommend Wirewood Symbiote as it helps protect some of your more hated elves from being removed and allows you to untap a creature you may have tapped for a whole host of reasons.

February 12, 2015 7:31 p.m.

Krob86 says... #32

I am weary of running coat of arms too often in my green that runs many elves just because so many people are running tribal style decks with EDH if they started with the constructs. I have had it lose me more games due to an enemy massively making tokens that I could not deal with.

I'm surprised that no one has recommeneded Sylvan Library

No Green Sun's Zenith or Chord of Calling?

I feel this is incorrect.

April 8, 2015 12:42 a.m.

Put in Drove of Elves.

April 8, 2015 3:36 a.m.

Also, Elvish Piper or Norwood Priestess might be nice.

Replace Ghost Quarter with Strip Mine, add a Desert Twister for it is a great way to take out a planeswalker.

Marenkai says... #40

Staff of Domination is a no-brainer in any Elf deck as it make infinite combos pretty easy to go:

You just need an elf that produces 5 mana and you're making infinite life, infinite card draw and infinite mana !

Tanis44 says... #41

Have you considered Collected Company?

June 24, 2015 6:32 p.m.

KingMetalink says... #42

I would just like to point out that Ambush Commander is a very risky card to have in the deck, If he is out and someone boardwipes, you lose. I realize that you can sac him using his own ability, but you may not have mana open to do so.

June 28, 2015 1:30 a.m.

carpecanum says... #43

Coat of Arms helps every other tribal deck as well as your own. Krenko will love you and so will anybody playing a changeling of any sort or a Clone etc.

Voice of the Woods allows you to tap elves (even those w/ summoning sickness) as an instant for some non-elf support heavies. Awesome w/ Doubling Season in play.

Natural Order?

August 5, 2015 7:33 a.m.

Umbral Mantle? That's a ton of mana!

I'm also working on a Competitive Freyalise. mine whent in a different direction then yours but it's good to compare notes. :P

fell free to check mine out Freyalise, Llanowar's Perfection Ramp/Smash/Combo

martyq says... #47

last time i made a nice discovery of cardcombo:

Seedborn Muse

Wirewood Symbiote

that are the core-cards. You can combine it with:

Door of Destinies

Lys Alana Huntmaster

Imperious Perfect

Joraga Warcaller

though, there are many nice combos, that is just the combo i had on the battlefield in a multiplayer.

was pretty fun!

September 14, 2016 6:40 a.m.

martyq says... #48

sry forgot another card for the combo...

Yeva, Nature's Herald

makes no sense without this

I would second a vote for Voice of the Woods

I would recommend Parallel Lives In case you do not have the money to buy a Doubling Season.

Hey cool deck! You Freyalise build sounds very fun. I'm working on an elf-ball version, feel free to check mine out here! +1

Argothian Elder Would make another good option for infinite mana when combined with Maze of Ith and Wirewood Lodge!

Growing Rites of Itlimoc of course needs to be here! & Gaea's Cradle if $$$ were not an object.
