Copperhorn Scout Discussion

Hey. Cool deck. While I'm not used to seeing this version of Rhys be used as a commander, I'm glad I took a look.
A couple elves I would recommend for this deck are Copperhorn Scout and Joraga Warcaller. The warcaller works well with your strategy & will make your elves less susceptible to dying to combat damage. The mana elves you run can make his multikicker get pretty high. The Copperhorn Scout can give you more mana to use on your second main phase or give you double the life from Wellwisher each turn.
A non-elf I would recommend for this deck would be Elvish Guidance. Essentially makes the land a Gaea's Cradle for your deck without the price tag. Speaking of which, Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip as well as Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go a long way to helping those X-spells in your deck.
Not sure what I would recommend to cut to make room for all of these, but I will say I'm not sure how effective your discard strategy is. I get denying cards can be powerful, but I feel it splits focus from the deck. So I would recommend cutting Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Mind Slash.
Oh! Just thought of a couple more elves. Elvish Visionary (draw 1) and Generous Patron (draw 2 when you resolve its support on opponents' creatures) can give you some added draw for your deck while also giving you an elf in play to add to your elf count.
All right. I think that's all I have right now. Again, love the deck list and apologies for not offering more options to cut. Anyway, +1 from me for sure.

Profet93 I'll give you my thoughts in order, if you don't mind?
Harmonize - a long-time inclusion in the deck, I recently took it out in favour of Voice of Many, which is 99% of cases is the exact same card but with a relevant body attached. Rarely does a deck play out more creatures than I do in such short order, meaning it's still for three cards but also pumps Marwyn, Priest, Archdruid and all the other cards that care about number of elves/creatures in play.
Copperhorn Scout - another that was in the deck from its inception, but was recently removed. I found the effect's timing was too inconsistent with what I wanted to be doing; when so many wins come through Ezuri or Craterhoof, being required to wait until post-combat to storm off leaves the deck waiting for another turn cycle to actually win.
Quirion Ranger - this is a good one and should certainly be in here. I'm not sure how I missed it!
Vines of Vastwood - good shout, need to pick up a copy.
Berserk - another good shout, I'll put it on a wishlist.
Natural Order/Eldritch Evolution - I'm wary of tutors that require me to sacrifice creatures, as a general rule. So much of the deck relies on the sheer weight of numbers that I'd prefer not to sac any Elves if I don't have to. Plus the many mass-draw effects often mean that tutors aren't required too often.
Elvish Visionary - was in, but I think it got cut for another mana-producing Elf.
Lifecrafter's Bestiary - when you need it, it's a bit too mana intensive. Once you've got the spare mana, it's not as necessary. Something of a win-more card IMHO.

Thoughts on the following.....
- Harmonize - Simple draw
- Copperhorn Scout - Surprised this isn't in here
- Quirion Ranger - Redundancy is nice
- Fauna Shaman - Additional tutor or not needed due to all the draw?
- Vines of Vastwood - Hexproof and buff, all useful
- Berserk - Extra mana or pump for the win
- Natural Order/Eldritch Evolution - Tutor
- Elvish Visionary - Cantrip elf
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary - Scry and draw, always nice
Of course the issue is what to cut if you like these. But I would love to hear your input. From my understanding, this is a kind of storm deck (correct me if I'm wrong) so bestiary and some others might not be the best fit as you are trying to go off at once instead of accruing some incremental advantage.

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.
Copperhorn Scout doesn't fly, is likely to die and doesn't add much to the deck since you already get to untap with your commander. I would rather suggest to instead add some removal in the form of Ulvenwald Tracker , which adds tremendous values combined with all the untaps
Ethersworn Canonist chances are that your opponents won't play a lot of spells due to Winter Orb ect... and you already got the best one of all ( Eidolon of Rhetoric ), therefore I would rather swap it for some better hate in cEDH which would be Spirit of the Labyrinth
Vryn Wingmare same goes here. I wouldn't play any stax pieces with CMC 3 or higher (too slow and you get better effects for same CMC). For 3 CMC can get Recruiter of the Guard , Eternal Witness , Knight of the Reliquary , Knight of Autumn , Banisher Priest / Fiend Hunter . Note: In your case I would go for removal effects, since you have only Gilded Drake . A Yisan deck would crush yours since it is not affected by stax (since it's a stax deck as well) and would tutor Ulvenwald Tracker and kill all your flyers and dorks.
Archon of Valor's Reach I think this is a classic win-more card which you don't really need to win the game. An alternative would be Gaddock Teeg . However, if you insist on having a high CMC mana drop that completely destroys the game board in your favor, I would like to introduce Willbreaker
Utopia Sprawl / Wild Growth : Since you are a creature deck I would much rather play the remaining mana dorks in order to have more hitters for untap triggers but more importantly, to not be affected by your own stax. Remaining dorks are: Boreal Druid , Priest of Titania ,
Nature's Claim since you are a creature deck and you will be slowing down the game tremendously, I strongly believe that Aura Shards is a better option to go with. It is recurrent and you are very light on removal. What can you do against a Cursed Totem or Humility ?
Tangle Wire I believe you don't really need this stax piece. It's one of the weakest and only holds up a very short time. Instead try for example Nature's Will - this has proven to be quite devastating. Or Living Plane if you seek to lock out all lands of your opponents together with Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Cyclonic Rift seems fine but could also be a win-more card. I presume you would cast this very late in the game and only as an emergency for 2 CMC. Hence, you can ask yourself if this card is really needed to win or if you perhaps would rather have another card that helps to set you up in the early game. I.e. Sylvan Tutor / Fauna Shaman ect...
I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Possible Creature Additions and Swap-Outs IN - Elvish Piper

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves can be held in the hand until the moment someone tries to kill your elves, then dropped at instant speed to counter the spell/ability. Note that this shuts off Wirewood Lodge so Temur Sabertooth can be necessary to get him back off the field. Heroic Intervention provides a similar effect for the same cost, but only once (unless you have ewit shenanigans ready).
Elvish Harbinger is one of the best tutors going for elfball decks.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader is another infinite mana outlet that wins games.
Joraga Warcaller can be played early as a minor lord to keep your weenies alives, then bounced and re-played later when you have a surplus of mana.
Loaming Shaman is great grave-hate that can also double up as recursion if you've got the draw engine started.
Nullmage Shepherd will make artifact / enchantment based decks scoop on the spot.
Patron of the Orochi untaps itself every turn along with every other creature you control (but also every green creature and forest at the table).
Realm Seekers often comes down as a huge beater, and tutors up any land at instant speed.
Skyshroud Poacher will win you the game unless it is immediately removed. Best elf tutor ever printed.
