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.

Welcome to WiltLeafElves's list of all things Coding related! This list was made to ensure that people will be able to easily find resources to whatever they need to know. If you notice any better organization method, information I'm missing, or have any other concern, please say so in the comments below.
Welcome! Here are a few main points of information. Below each link will be a description in my own words. The top link of each Panel will be the one considered to be the most helpful. If you can't find something, make sure to check the Frequently Asked Questions! I hope this list is actually helpful, starting by telling you what FAQ stands for. ;)
Additionally, check here before you go down, as some basic formatting can be easily done by using TappedOut's own special shortcuts.
There wasn't a single post on this in the coding forum, so here's my own example. Make sure the buttons are obvious, so you don't get punished for cheating. (for example, turning just about every word into an upvote button, and not even plastering "UPVOTE BUTTON" everywhere).
<a class="vote-link btn btn-success btn-lg" href="/mtg-decks/a-deck-thats-basically-just-an-upvote-button/vote-up/?rc=True"> Upvote[[symbol:loyalty-plus1]] </a>
Feel free to spam that button! The linked deck is not even a deck at all. The only purpose it has is to show that the buttons work.
This deckpage contains information on using an External Stylesheet, including basic css, detailed steps, and how to modify your background.
The linked comment contains the proper code for setting a background image, and inserting a stylesheet. A stylesheet template is included.
This forum post is the best page for a user who's only desire is to make certain panels on their transparent. A comment by multimedia, here, contains valuable information on anyone planning to start their External Stylesheet from scratch. (no pun intended, please do not try to use scratch.)
Another forum post detailing the codes on background art, as well as clear text boxes.
how to put an image on an accordion block
This was a post from a user trying to use the original code for accordion blocks. The linked comment gives the proper code for how to put an image on the panels of an accordion block.
Sorry if these questions are of no help, the ones listed here are merely extra pages I found while scouring the forum.
Q: Where are my apostrophes?
This allows you to use regular commas and apostrophes, and not the ones that are displayed on TappedOut, as well as a menagerie of other symbols.
Q: How do I get the fullart Mana Leak?
Q: Is it possible to display a token such as a Servo?
Q: How do I change the name of a card in a link?
Q: How do I make certain panels in my decklist Transparent?
A: Look above, in the Page Customization option. If you can't find it there, this should work.
Q: How do I put an outline or shadow around certain words?
Q: How do I get card images to hover?
A: All cards on TappedOut that use the syntax card:card_name_here automatically have the image hover. If you want to get the image hover on other sites, check here
Q: How do I get decklists on my descriptions?
Q: How do I set up an altered art for a card on my decklists? (Alters)
Q: How do I get a certain printing to show up when I link a card?
A: here is how you link specific printings of cards. In addition, you are able to add foil ✱F✱, as well as country codes such as ✱JA✱
Q: How do I set up a custom font for my username?
Try to keep everything you do on your own decklists, profile, or username, as those are more easily solved, and can be edited by you. NEVER put any page altering code in a comment. Only upgraded users are able to delete comments, and only on their own decklists / profile, meaning most users won't be able to easily get rid of your comment.
Thanks for viewing this list! Make sure you tell your friends about it, so this page doesn't become another clunky post taking up space in the coding forum.

oh wait it is 3 infinite's, nevermind. ignore me.
August 15, 2017 11:37 p.m.
filthyc4sual that requires you to have activated Ezuri prior, so your devoteds get +3/+3. Then, you keep activating both of them, use mana to activate ezuri, and continue. Also, that only nets you 2 infinite/infinite tramplers. (please correct me if i'm wrong, i'm in a hurry)

Is it possible to get letters from other languages on tappedout? (such as chinese, japanese, i.e. languages not using latin alphabet?)
EDIT: I seem to be able to get japanese letters into my rank title, and deck names, but deck descriptions and profile text don't seem to work.

coat is generally too slow, and is a bit of an overkill. You can run it, but using more elvish archdruid and Ezuri or Eladamri would be better. Copper horn scout is a great card. I would suggest it as a 1 of, but you can definitely run 2 and get a lot of value.
August 8, 2017 10:01 p.m.
Actually, Elves work really well in Green White and not only Black. White has way better sideboards, and other options. Black is generally only for Shaman of the pack, and thoughtseize. Beck is splashed for as a substitute of Glimpse of Nature, which got banned early on in modern. The combo deck uses Nettle Sentinel and Heritage Druid, as well as sometimes using Regal Force, Elvish Visionary, Cloudstone Curio, etc. It can make infinite mana by continuously using 3 Nettles to cast 2 Visionaries that are bouncing each other off Curio. Also, the new rules only care when an effect wants to know the converted cmc of a card. To cast beck, you still only need UG, not the additional cost of call (although it's something you can do if you have the mana).

Oh yeah that is true...
How about just having 1 heritage druid? Beats having none.
August 7, 2017 3:03 a.m.
Yeah you probably are right, heritage usually is added as a playset, but it could be fine as a 2 of.

Sorry I forgot to add explanations,
Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves are important as they are the best 1 drops you could place on turn 1 (in an elf deck). They help power everything in later turns. Also, you are kind of lacking on 1 drops.
Elvish Archdruid - a great lord, is probably the only one you will run if you play modern. Taps for a heck ton of mana.
Elvish Visionary - green can often lack card draw, and this guy provides it.
Ambush Commander - very great with elvish archdruid, you can tap the archdruid for even more mana, or just have 2/2 elf lands.
Elvish Promenade makes a ton of tokens with ambush commander.
Wellwisher makes a ton of life.
Heritage Druid allows for some awesomely broken turns, as you ignore summoning sickness if you tap creatures to her ability.
Dwynen's Elite: a 2 for 1 with 3 power split between 2 creatures is great.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader allows for a turn 3 win. turn 1 Llanowar Elves, turn 2 Heritage Druid + Dwynen's Elite, tap all 3 into an Elvish Archdruid. turn 3 cast Ezuri, Renegade Leader, tap archdruid for 6 mana, activate ezuri, swing with your 4 untapped creatures for 21 damage.

I think you should go with something like this;
that being said, I think you should work to a Modern deck like this Why are Elves so sELFish?
The cards I suggested will help you build slowly towards Modern Elves.
You can find more information on elves in Modern here
I hope this helps!
August 7, 2017 1:41 a.m.
Thanks! It'll probably take me around a week though, I'm without a computer for 3 days, limiting my tappedout activity to deckcycling.
August 6, 2017 10:36 a.m.
I was thinking of making a list of everything related to coding, would that only cause more clutter in the coding forum? there's a lot of helpful information there, as well as crucial notes (such as not making a mistake that ruins the website), but I don't think many people know how to get to what they're looking for.
What are your opinions on this? thanks!

This deck is fine as it is, but if you want to shift more into competitive, ambassador oak cost too much mana for what it does. If you look at your curve, you are very low on 1 drops. That is a problem I see here, as elves are really low to the ground, and known for their very low mana costs.
Running mainboard hate, unless it targets every single other deck in your meta, is generally considered to be unwise, as instead of casting a 3 mana removal spell, you could've just cast another elf to help you win. Basically, it is better, game 1, to be advancing your strategy, than to try to disrupt your opponent, unless that is the sole purpose of your deck. An elf deck is generally always creature heavy, and doesn't require mainboard hate.
Below are some steps I'd take to polish this deck up, as your average CMC is way too high for the amount of lands and mana sources you have. Sorry for making this really long, but please bear with me.
-3 prowess of the fair
-2 aerial predation
-2 aim high
-2 essence warden
-1 nissa's chosen, as it isn't that good without nissa revane, which can't be hit by collected company. You can keep this in if you still want to run nissa's.
-1 ambassador oak
-2 cylian elf
-1 soul of the harvest
-1 gilt-leaf ambush, as elves are low to the ground and generally always lose clash anyway.
-2 elvish promenade, which will be explained somewhere below
-hunting triad, as it is just a worse version of elvish promenade
-the two nissa's.
-5 swamp, as they do not help you cast green cards, which are the majority of your spells.
-4 forest, which will be explained later below.
Now you only have 11 lands. I suggest you run around 18~19 if you want to be more aggressive, or 20~21. Lets go with 19, as that is still more aggressive, while staying safer.
You'd need 8 more lands for that. Now, this is where I explain why the 4 forests and the swamps were cut. You generally want to make all your black sources dual lands, as you rarely ever want to have swamp as one of the few lands in your opening hand. That only causes you to make unnecessary mulligans. I'll suggest 8 dual lands on the cheaper side, but if you want, you can always change to more expensive ones.
Now that you have 19 lands, you have 25 spaces in your deck to fill up with nonland cards.
These are some ideas, you can always add in other options.
-3x Elvish Mystic You want a lot of 1 drop elves in an elf deck
-4x Heritage Druid. They combo really well with the next card, as well as letting you have an awesome turn 3 win.
-3x Nettle Sentinel They have a great body, and are just great overall. 4 can be a bit too much sometimes.
-2x Elvish Archdruid These are really powerful, and are necessary.
-1x Dwynen's Elite These are very great, as you get 3 power/toughness split among 2 bodies for the cost of 1 (of course, this is only because you have a heck ton of 1 drops).
-2x Collected Company These are really powerful, as you can get 2 elves all at instant speed.
-3x Chord of Calling. This is where I will explain why we cut elvish promenade. It is a really powerful card, and one of my favorites, but is overkill, doesn't work with collected company, and is not as good as chord of calling. Chord is another place where heritage druid shines, as each of these essentially lower the cost of chord by 1 (as they tap for convoke, then untap right after). Chord of calling also lets you tutor for your sideboard creatures, or even any other elf, all at instant speed.
-2x Elvish Visionary this card is really important. Elves lack card draw, and this guy provides some.
-1x Ezuri, Renegade Leader not as important, because with 4 coco and 3 chord, if you want these, you can always tutor. even so, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and other hand disruption will always be able to steal ezuri, so running 2 is safer.
Earlier, we moved 9 cards from your mainboard into your sideboard. Now, we'll be cutting some of those cards out of your sideboard, as they aren't that necessary. The full sideboard I'll put here is
-2x Essence Warden Great card overall, having this keeps you from dying from every heavy hitter. Also prevents you from dying from any lifeloss.
-2x Prowess of the Fair this card is really interesting. although you could use its synergy with Rhys the Exiled to some extent, its main power is to protect you from a single wrath effects. Also helps with Shaman of the Pack, as Prowess of the Fair is an elf.
-2x Thornweald Archer. You ran many anti flying cards mainboard, so I put this here. It serves a similar purpose, having reach and deathtouch, and is an elf, allowing it to be tutored, hit by coco, or to make mana off of Heritage Druid or Elvish Archdruid. Can also be used as a deathtouch attacker if need be. Very versatile.
-2x Creeping Corrosion against any artifact heavy decks.
-2x Abrupt Decay, or even 2x Fatal Push. the second option is more expensive. really depends on how many death's shadow decks are lingering around your LGS. decay is less effective against that, but has a wider range of targets, and is a better sideboard overall.
-1x Nissa Revane since you really like nissa, this is the one you should use. Is actually modern playable.
I hope some of this helps! If you have any questions or concerns, you can leave it on my wall userpage thing. +1 from me. Have a great day!
answering your question, a non nissa elvish planeswalker would be Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, although she is secretly only half elf and half human, is not modern legal, and died killing a hole in space.
