if you pick a small token swarm deck: Remove: advent of the wurm armada wurm centaur healer (to the side board) growing ranks privileged possition (to the sideboard) Trostani, Selesnya's Voice Authority of the Consuls (to the side board) selessnya charm ( to the side board) sundering growth (to the side board) 2x luminous bonds (Devouring light is better and you do not need that much removal in a swarm deck) 2x selessnya locket and cut 2 lands that would work if you did not want to buy any additional cards. If you pick a big stompy tokens deck: remove: Camaraderie 2 Conclave Cavalier Loxodon Hierarch Selesnya Charm 2 Selesnya Guildmage Tolsimir Wolfblood Ajani's Welcome Authority of the Consuls (to the board) 1x Conclave Tribunal 2x Devouring Light Divine Visitation Mentor of the Meek 2 Scatter the Seeds then add two other removal spells that do not have convoke (until then you can leave the devouring lights in)

personally i prefer the small creatures/tokens aspect, i cannot remeber my first deck perfectly but it was along the lines of:

4x sunblade elf 4x llannowar elf 2x elvish mystic 2x imperious perfect 2x Selesnya Guildmage 1x Tolsimir Wolfblood 4x Luminous Bonds 4x Mentor of the Meek 1x Sandwurm Convergence 1x Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen 1x Elvish Archdruid 2x Hunting Triad 2x Drove of Elves 4x Elvish Visionary 3x rootborn defence 24x lands

I'm not saying it was a great deck but i did enjoy it. the idea would be to drop as many elves as possible using mentor of the meek for draw and then swing an power them all up.

the best way to improve your deck past dropping it to 60 cards is flesshing out the good cards with x4 hope this helps!

Hey Spectre I wasn't sure how to message you but what would you recommend cutting from my deck to get it down to 60. Also what should I replace to fit in the suggestions you and Prometheus brought up.

for Discovery / Dispersal i did not mean splash black. literally only ever play the first part of the card no black required. I'll have a glance at your izzet wizards but i am getting rid of my izzet wizards to build izzet spellslinger.

Hi

This (or something very similar deck to this) would be the naya deck I would run if I was going to (but ended up sticking with G-W). Although, I would try to find some space for a board pump effect even if it was Flower / Flourish or Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Side board wise I would recommended:

3xKnight of Autumn (vs burn and decks using nice enchantments: history of benalia, thousand year storm, divine visitation ect.)

2 Cleansing Nova not really for creature removal but it is one of the few ways in standard to destroy the growing in popularity Lich's Mastery decks. Two copies of this in a deck means they need to be running blue to win!! (and if they are running blue you just have to wait for them to tappout) (vs lich's mastery) if you don't have any of these where you play/don't struggle against them then obviously do not bother!

2 Shalai, Voice of Plenty she is a brilliant card for a deck like this protection pumping and flying in 1. (vs burn and control decks)

2 Settle the Wreckage (vs. mid range or aggro deck)

4 Tocatli Honor Guard the best way to combat the top of the meta golgari explore/etb deck [note it does stop Goblin Instigators ability so that is what i would swap them in for] (vs. golgari/abzan explore)

2 Banefire is brilliant against a long drawn out control match up where you have lots of lands as all your threats have been answered. only ever play to kill! (vs.control [note. not counter burn it will be too slow]) if you don't have any of these where you play/don't struggle against them then obviously do not bother!

2 Remorseful Cleric (vs. GY decks including the golgari explore deck)

Sorry I started of suggesting a couple of cards and ended up building a sideboard for you :S Sorry if I overstepped the amount of advice you were wanting. I know there are 17 cards in the SB I suggested but cutting a couple based on your local meta is the best advice I can give, as in if everyone is playing a dooom enchantment in their deck play 4 knights if no one is playing gy recursion strip the clerics.

I hope I helped and I really do like the deck!

Thanks for reading,

Ed

Hi Do you feel like you run out of cards really quickly? I would recommend either Mentor of the Meek or Militia Bugler to keep up the pressure. mentor is great as it can give you so much draw in a weenies deck as opposed to militia bugler that gives you a reasonable body for your board and gives a free card. Hope this helps, Ed

Hi I am looking at other decks so I can build a similar one myself. I would recommended Mission Briefing over Flood of Recollection. Also Discovery / Dispersal works very well (ignore dispersal and use discovery as a 2 cost Preordain). Expansion / Explosion is also an extremely potent card, either copying your smaller spells or giving you a lot of draw in an opponents end step. I also do not think you need Wall of mist you have enough creatures and I think those card slots would be much more noticed as counter/draw spells

Hi I run a similar deck and found that March of the Multitudes is literally a game winner. The fact that it is an instant is amazing. Dropping a literal army in their end step is ridiculous. Especially if you can follow it up with a Trostani. (you can also use this to piss of control players who have held back mana)

You also do not need to run all the land/land fetches you have, I run 22 lands and 3 flower//flourish and don't get staved. IMHO you really do not need the 2 guides I think you would notice a full play-set of saproling migration.

Against control match ups it might be worth considering having Mentor of the Meek, Dawn of Hope, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and/or a Huatli, Radiant Champion in the side board to give you more draw especially if you can double spell into one on a turn they are not expecting. All of these give a very nice card advantage so you don't fizzle out.

I also think your best curve is T1 legions landing T2 saproling migration T3 venerated loxodon or swing with 3 creatures and transform legions landing.

Thanks for reading, -Ed

Hi I had a glance over my previous post and realised a mistake with it. The sentance "The opposite is true with populate cards, with big tokens they make a big impact and with small tokens they do not do much." should be at the end of the next paragraph oops :S

Hi Have you considered splashing green for a naya deck? it is easy with the selesnya lands and gives you acess to alot of token generation such as Trostani Discordant, March of the Multitudes and Saproling Migration even Emmara, Soul of the Accord can work well with mentor

Hey,

I'm always glad to see another person join the growing ranks of the Selesnya.

The first thing I would say about the deck is try to make it as consistent as possible. This is normally done by running as many as possible of the better cards. I understand this is probably because of the fact that you have just started so your collection is limited but it might be something to keep in mind as you progress. The opposite is true with populate cards, with big tokens they make a big impact and with small tokens they do not do much.

Next decide fully what direction you want to take the deck. What are your win conditions and how are you going to obtain them? The two classics for tokens in this colour are either: Flooding the board with lots of smaller tokens or cheaply duplicating bigger tokens. This should help you identify which cards to cut. For example Tolsimir is brilliant when running lots of smaller tokens but his benifit is not doing as much if you are playing bigger creatures.

As for a side board it is a reactionary selection of cards. so really you need to think who you are playing against and what cards would combat their decks. For example i would say that authority of the consuls is more of a side board card, as even though it is brilliant against some decks it can be a bit of a waste against others. When I started (and i started with a low to the ground token elf deck) I did not worry about a side board because it is more for competitive play.

some other ideas from my first deck: I love the cards Wilt-Leaf Liege Sunblade Elf These are very good for swarming the board.

Wall of Roots is a perfect card for a big stompy deck giving you protection early game and mana to cast your bigger cards early.

I would also put some form of flying defence in the deck (or even the side board). Sandwurm Convergence can be a good one (although the mana cost is steep) I,m sorry for prattling on so much, I hope I helped. Any questions id be happy to answer.
