Thoughts on Adventurous Impulse for Elves

Recently I’ve been working on my first Pauper deck, which is an Elf deck. Currently I have Adventurous Impulse in the deck, but I’m not sure if I’ll leave it in. I like that it’s a smaller, cheaper version of Lead the Stampede so I can sort of get more copies of that, but it’s also significantly worse than Stampede and I’m not 100% I like it enough to keep it in. It’s nice that it can get lands if I need those, and having the effect at 1 mana is nice, but it lowers the chance that Lead the Stampede connects and may make me ditch more stuff than I want to. I can’t decide if it’s better to keep it in or trade it out for a different card.
What do you think about this card? Is it worth running? If not, what might be a good card to replace it with?
Playtest a set of Impulse for a few weeks and then a set of Stampede, to see which is better for you!

Definitely playtest with Adventurous Impulse , Commune with Nature , and Lead the Stampede to find what you like best. Both Impulse and Commune are cheaper, but will only net you one creature. With the experiences I've had with pauper elves, my opinion would be Stampede is the best of the three. Most elves decks don't run many spells or land that will have you miss value with Stampede.
