If you look at my deck (which, consequently, also once ran Coat of Arms way back when), I overcome its loss by including things like Alpha Status , Tribal Unity , and the activation on Ezuri, Renegade Leader as offense.

The thing is, Coat of Arms is from another era. That shouldn't suggest that it's outdated or useless, but in reality anymore you really only need enough damage to finish off your opponent. The idea of "ooo I have 11x of these 13/13 elves in play" is neat and all, but unless they've all got Trample then even that isn't as good as it once was.

That's why I prefer Sylvan Messenger (hey, he's also got innate Trample, so there's that too) and Vanquisher Banner - the test of time has shown that almighty Card Draw for consistency/speed will FAR outweigh any generic +X/+X global bonus nearly every time. If it were me I would leave those Glimpse of Nature in. Those are only missing from my build because I've stopped spending money on the hobby until reality cools off a bit.

Slate of Ancestry you can make your own call on, but regardless of what you do I'd highly recommend at least playtesting it (even with stand-in cards first) a few times with 4x Sylvan Messenger and at least 3 banners. I think between that and Glimpse you've got real potential to be able to just dump it altogether, but without a playtest of my own I'm venturing into speculation territory. What win condition you decide to bring to the table is up to you, but it's safe to say that you can EASILY find one other than Coat of Arms.

Again, good luck! Glad it's at least giving you some things to mull over.

If you can't get off the ground as fast as you want you need to have a way to slow the game down or to block damage while you build up. You've seen me do this in half my decks. Bubble Matrix or Vigor means anybody can block. Spidersilk Armor . Silent Arbiter would be good, you build up guys and tap, who cares if you attack?
