Concordant Crossroads Discussion
3 days ago
Thousand-Year Elixir should probably be Concordant Crossroads I had someone respond to my explanation of my loop and casting of Thassa's Oracle trigger with an Angel's Grace he felt clever so I had to let him know that I also have a Concordant Crossroads to attack him down to 1 life point and Walking Ballista for the last point of damage on his upkeep so he scooped it up. Obviously that was in a vaccum but still figured I would mention it.

This change is minimal but I have been facing many ramp decks recently and the lifegain from Swords to Plowshares has been more relevant than I like.
Sacred Mesa can be a powerhouse but as the commander format continues to speed up it never seems to do enough when I get it into play. I have replaced it with a card that should have been in my deck years ago.
I can see Wolfbriar Elemental finding its way back in the deck if it becomes more focussed on generating large amounts of green mana. However, for now it is the casualty of Tooth and Nail which makes this deck more consistent and allows wins on the spot by grabbing Craterhoof Behemoth & Avenger of Zendikar
The pridemage is easily tutorable removal in a deck with limited interaction. I found myself holding mana up for Fresh Meat that often would go unused when the wrath I was playing around never came. This change helps improve one of the decks overall goals of being more proactive.
I hate to see llanowar go but he's low impact and Concordant Crossroads is the opposite, allowing the decks combos to go off immediately and win before opponents have a chance to react. It is to be saved only for winning the game as it also gives your opponents haste.

Hello, I have some cards suggestions you could consider.
Aura Shards - Just be mindful of this one as its really powerful but depends on your group. I play against Zur so its incredibly useful to me. Might not be as useful to you.
Oko, Thief of Crowns - Still powerful. Shouldn't ever be a dead card.

SynergyBuild I didn't say it was good at it lol. It's far from budget but Concordant Crossroads would accomplish that. It's not a creature that can be flashed in with yeva, but it is a low costed enchantment that can go in early to speed up your creatures

Wow what a cool looking Primer. Solid deck, you did an absolutely great job! I'm a big Elf tribal fan, because Elves where my first deck ever.
Cool cards that I personally enjoyed playing:
- Vivien, Monsters' Advocate = best green planeswalker atm! Cut Yeva and a Forest for Vivien and one/two of the following lands:
- Emergence Zone / Winding Canyons = instead of some Forests
- Sylvan Messenger / Collected Company / Lead the Stampede = much needed carddraw
- Survival of the Fittest / Birthing Pod / Yisan, the Wanderer Bard = best green Tutor-engines
- Ohran Frostfang / Runic Armasaur = really solid carddraw (/Rishkar's Expertise / Return of the Wildspeaker)
- Bane of Progress / Lignify / Song of the Dryads = very good green removal
- Isolated Watchtower / Terrain Generator / Path of Ancestry = cool lands you should consider instead of forests
- Aether Vial + enough draw can snowball really fast
- Cloudstone Curio = an insane combo piece/enabler, especially with: Aluren or Concordant Crossroads
This deck looks already pretty strong, if you want to play on a cEDH table, you just should do some small adjustments:
- Allosaurus Shepherd / Destiny Spinner = instead of the Herald
- Null Rod + Collector Ouphe!!
- Mana Crypt!!
- Chrome Mox / Mox Diamond
- Gemstone Caverns / Ancient Tomb
- Damping Sphere / Thorn of Amethyst = to stop storm decks and slow down other decks
- Sylvan Scrying = to tutor for Cradle or Cavern
- Carpet of Flowers/Wild Growth/Utopia Sprawl
I played elves in almost every format and cool combo from modern was: Cloudstone Curio + Heritage Druid + Nettle Sentinel = infinite mana or with something like Elvish Visionary or Beast Whisperer you can also draw your entire deck if you want

Thanks very much RenlarZ88. Real talk, I really like all of those substitutions and suggestions you've thrown out there (Field of the Dead! of course!) and I'm going to do a bit of a deck re-work to fit some of these cards in. KevinLandonChanning, I'm going to add a couple of those protection spells - specifically Heroic Intervention & Flawless Maneuver.
Onto a few of the specific card mentions substitution choices:
Lots to think about, significant deck update coming!

Are you avoiding infinite mana combos? Because its very easy to go infinite with untappers like Umbral Mantle and Sword of the Paruns if you have enough elves. There's also Temur Sabertooth if you can give Elvish Archdruid or ones like him haste and have enough elves. Its the reason i run Lightning Greaves as well as Swiftfoot Boots. Concordant Crossroads is also good for that as well considering most of the time you'll be faster than people so it doesn't matter if they have haste as well. Castle Garenbrig should be in most mono-green deck and Wirewood Lodge in most elves decks. Thespian's Stage is good for copying both of those or Nykthos. Silklash Spider might be helpful for extra flying removal but that seems to come in and out of the maybeboard for me. Lastly Vivien, Champion of the Wilds does wonders extra flash is always better. I hope this helps infinite mana makes Ezuri disgusting.

I am definitely not familiar with cEDH metas but would Anger be of use for this deck? Mass Hysteria and Concordant Crossroads might also be useful as a more reliable version of this effect but I could also see it backfiring by it providing mass haste to your opponents.
