Darb_the_Bard on Buttercup: Princess Bride

I decided I like Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim in the deck. However, I only like it for being a two-mana legendary creature whose colors are not red and green (i.e. able to be cast early and play alongside Jegantha to pump Buttercup's power to at least 6). I still don't find Elas il-Kor's abiltity to be that useful in this specific deck. For these reasons, I took it out and replaced it with Jirina, Dauntless General, which can be sacrificed to protect Buttercup and many of our other key cards since they happen to be humans: Westley, Inigo, Miracle Max, Vizzini, Odric, Jodah, Dynaheir, Reki, Jhoira, Shanid, Leinore, Kenrith, and Halana and Alena.

I also removed Ankle Shanker. While it's not bad, I don't feel it's great either as I would rather have another legendary that can come into play sooner. Its benefit was giving deathtouch to everything, but Odric does it so much better while also being tutorable. So, I decided I would rather add ways to protect Odric once we tutor for him. Jirina, named above, does this. I also added Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate since she has a very similar ability. She costs one more than Jarina but can protect all creatures (not just humans) and also provides flying for our keyword soup. Finally, I added Arwen, Mortal Queen since she can hand out an indestructible counters, which we can potentially proliferate to then hand out even more. Plus she synergizes with +1/+1 counters and can add lifelink to our keyword soup.

Of your latest suggestions, I think Anafenza, the Foremost has the most synergy due to its ability to give out +1/+1 counters, which I like alongside Miracle Max. I added that one to the maybeboard. The other cards can all do powerful things, but I would prefer them in lists that have more specific synergies with them.

Beebles There are a few that seem great, like The Gaffer and Gwaihir, Greatest of the Eagles. Gwaihir giving Trelly flying when we attack seems great, and its another token producer. I think we have enough separate life gain triggers that often hitting 3 shouldn't be an issue.

Treebeard, Gracious Host seems strong but expensive at 4cmc, Arwen, Mortal Queen combos nicely with Trelly as well.
