Oh yeah that is true...
How about just having 1 heritage druid? Beats having none.

Yeah you probably are right, heritage usually is added as a playset, but it could be fine as a 2 of.

Crucible is going for $10-$15 less than Chalice on average right now, so unless you have something else on my want list that evens it out I'll have to decline. Alternatively, if you're still looking to build seismic swans I could trade you that deck for your Crucible.

So you don't care about format legality then?

Using eldrazi in commander can prove difficult, even with the mana rocks, it would be just too hard to be able to cast them consistently without a playset of Eldrazi Temples. The other problem is, youve got a bunch of 1 of card and they are REALLY big as far as cmc goes. I would pick one or two of these guys and use em as one of semi win cons in an eldrazi tron deck. Or build casual and use Eye of Ugin too. The biggest guy i have in my drazi tron is Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and use him as a two of.

I think really the only viable deck it could be used in would be golgari elves. And it would only be a two of. It would end up compromising too many valuable slots as more than that, which certainly kills the odds of getting it when you need it. And you run the risk of pulling and having to bottom it with collected company. Plus it would be dreadful to have in your opening hand. So at best i think its a fringe win-more with potential to do more harm to your strategy than good.

Youre slowing yourself down by using vial. Your first turn in competitive elves should almost always be a mana dork. That way you can attack as early as turn 2, as with vial, youll have a tiny army of dorks by turn 2 but youre not swingin until turn 3, in which time burn could potentially have half your life total diminished. Its rare that we say this, but aether vial is just too slow for elves. Plus its used for flashing in creatures to spam ETB effects which the only elf that really has any are visionary and shaman.

InnerFlame im sorry, i guess i wasnt clear enough, they shouldn't be in your main board. especially with what you said your meta is. Bring it in for your dredge matchups and its goodnight for them. But it doesnt really help against sisters, affinitt, or your tron or eldrazi matchups. And against burn its a wasted card and if you draw it will slow you down even faster.

Batterskull is an awesome card but hes reallt expensive (mana wise) to fiddle wit once something happens to the initial token. Where as wurmcoil has better effects and becomes a 2 for one if and when it dies. And i think maining an ugin is an excellent idea
August 9, 2017 11:07 a.m.
I told you, toss the angel and add the engine.
August 8, 2017 10:33 p.m.
If youre looking for a more effecient planeswalker than karn, i find most opponents i play, straight scoop to Ugin, the Spirit Dragon his ult is a winmore but wiping their board his -X is straight frustrating to them!
August 8, 2017 10:33 p.m.
Relic is a must have for the sideboard. Wurmcoil is SOOOO much better than platinum angel. Spellskite is okay but you can find better fits for that slot.
August 8, 2017 10:29 p.m.
The only critique i have is Spellskite I understand why youre runnin it though, so notva huge deal. Pretty standard golgari elves deck! Good build +1 from me.

Splashing blue for elves is a horrendous idea. Really the only other color worth adding or even splashing would be black. If you splash blue for beck and call, under the new rules you have to cast the call cost too. Meanwhile, youve splashed a color for cards that dont even compliment that colors stretngth.
August 8, 2017 3:29 p.m.
Why no aether vial or tidehollow sculler or flickerwisp? These are usually ran with eldrazi taxes, eapecially sculler for hand disruption.
August 8, 2017 9:43 a.m.
If you build B/W taxes you should be able to finish just fine. Then your purchase of a playset of vials can be justified. Plus its a fun archetype to play, almost every game is gonna be different and there is a ton of player interaction.
August 8, 2017 2:21 a.m.
Seems to me like your pretty much keeping the deck as is. Did you actually want suggestions? Or people to just look at your deck? Casual play or not, 4/5/and 6 drops arent good in any format without a way to cheat em out. And instead of giving your board state all that "protection" with Druid's Deliverance you could skip adding a bunch of stuff and spend the 40 bucks on eldarami. But its your deck. You have fun!
August 7, 2017 1:57 p.m.
Could be, but i haven't play tested it. I think id have to give up too much to run the druid, as it seems most elf decks that run her, run her as a playset.
August 7, 2017 2:05 a.m.
Completely agree with twistedmage then you must run a playset of Eladamri, Lord of Leaves. Deathrite Shaman is an auto include. Dwynen's Elite is a playset must. Your mana dorks need to be there too Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic Dryad Arbor and Green Sun's Zenith need to be there. Heedless One could be a nice 1 or 2 of. Wellwisher i know youre already running 2 but with the playset, and elad, you should never lose. Talara's Battalion could be awfully easy to cast and nasty with your pump lords. Ezuri, Renegade Leader could end up being a pretty fast, nasty, win con for you. Basically, you add all these suggestions, and cut most of the non creature cards, and any of the creature cards that have cmc of 4 or 5 or higher.
Your current instants arent needed. If you want to run instants (you wont/shouldnt need to) but collected company would be the preferred. Also, youre running way too many lands, mono colored deck, now youll be running dorks that have hex proof, youll be fine running 15-18 lands. So enjoy the extra deck space for more face beaters. Hope this helps! Have fun elfing your friends up!

At this point, with most of the above comments and suggestions, screw hatebears, just build death and taxes. Youll have the basic necessities (thalia, leonin, etc etc) the rest are pretty much flex spots. Which is whats so great about D&T anyway, you can be really creative with creature selection. With Tidehollow Sculler you could basically build b/w taxes, and splash blue for queller and geist of traft!
