Sorry. I didn't see Birchlore Rangers wasn't legal, and that combos with the infinite elves for infinite mana. When I took Birchlore Rangers out of the list, after checking legality of all of the cards, I took it out and forgot the clause in the description.

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Great to see that you added Fauna Shaman as an upgrade :)

$1-$3 card upgrades to consider:

Consider replacing some lands and mana rocks with more one drop mana Elves? Harbinger and Summons are creature tutors. Symbiote and Paruns are ways to untap the Elves who can make a lot of green mana (Priest, Archdruid, Marwyn). Paruns can be infinite green mana with one of these Elves. Timberwatch, Voice, Regal are creatures that benefit from having lot of other creatures in your control which is good with tokens. I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start. Unfortunately you can't play Rhys the Redeemed with Marwyn as General because Rhys has white in it's color identity and Marwyn is only mono green. With Elves the more one drops you can add the better especially if they can make mana.

Elves have a real problem without a lot draw because you can run out of steam and when that happens having a lot of mana isn't doing much. Repeatable sources of draw that care about creatures are great with Elves. Draw that's not repeatable is fine too.

Temur Sabertooth is an excellent support creature with Elves as a mana sink. This guy makes creatures who have an ETB ability extra good.

Most tutors in green are expensive price, but there's a few that aren't.

Try to replace land ramp sorceries with Elves who land ramp.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rhys the Redeemed
  • Oath of Nissa
  • Mantle of Webs
  • Savage Silhouette
  • Tanglesap
  • Nissa, Worldwaker
  • Wild Instincts
  • Rampant Growth
  • Nissa's Pilgrimage
  • Panharmonicon
  • Kaysa
  • Turntimber Ranger
  • Joraga Bard
  • Vastwood Animist
  • Tajuru Archer
  • Ooze Garden
  • Lifespring Druid
  • Door of Destinies

Consider cutting the Ally theme? This theme is not needed with Elves and there's not enough Allies here to support it. Good luck with your deck.

There is a morph token because Birchlore Rangers is a morph creature.

Dig deeper into the Sultai Morph precon decklist and you can find lot of reason to buy it. The manabase alone may be one of the better manabases for a three color Commander precon. Eleven nonbasic lands ETB untapped which is by precon standards an improvement from past precon manabases.

Why are the Signet lands ( Darkwater Catacombs ) being printed as rare lands? These lands don't actually make mana without having another land/one mana first, this is not an ability that's rare. These should be uncommon since they're much worse than Filter lands ( Sunken Ruins ) which are also rare lands.

Land value in the precon (in order):

I'm happy to see Ash Barrens reprinted because it's land that should be in every Commander precon. There's 17 two drops which is an improvement for precon deck building. Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer look like good cards for morph. Silencer will however not hold at $10 of value it will decrease a lot. I don't know enough about the 13 other new cards to evaluate their value in the precon.

Valuable reprints in the Sultai deck (in order):

Some notable exclusions for a morph theme:

Hey magicdecks02, check out Birchlore Rangers 's text; it generates 1 mana of any color. This generates the blue mana necessary for Distant Melody 's casting cost.

Painter's Hulk: Flash Hulk combo, grab Viscera Seer , a 1 cmc elf dork, and Body Snatcher . With Body Snatcher trigger on the stack sacrifice it, return Hulk to play, sacrifice Hulk. Grab Painter's Servant (name Blue) and Academy Rector , sacrifice Rector to grab Animate Dead and reanimate Hulk. Sacrifice Hulk to grab Birchlore Rangers , Pili-Pala , and Grand Architect . Use Pili-Pala to generate infinite blue mana, tap Birchlore and the other elf dork for a green, cast Thrasios. Draw whole deck and loop to win.

I don't know why you'd do this over just playing Shuffle Hulk, but I guess it's an option and it's definitely degenerate. Just hard to haste up Pili-Pala.
