My Multani, Maro-Sorcerer deck is one of my favorites. His power/toughness is equal to the number of cards in all player's hands. Group hug for a few turns to help everyone draw lots of cards, throw down Akroma's Memorial or Crashing Drawbridge or something, and then BOOM. Multani is a 25/25 for and is swinging at someone's face. Combine this with Return of the Wildspeaker or something similar to basically double his power!

He is on the Reserved List, though, which sucks. :(

I got some potential suggestions.

The key to Geralf as a build-around is that you gotta have a backup plan in case Geralf dies. You gotta be able to adapt to the situation instead of risking it all for one strategy.

Crashing Drawbridge is a good haste enabler that also has above-average toughness for Geralf.

Dragon Turtle is good for doubling as instant-speed pseudo-removal tempo and fodder for Geralf.

Spellskite can protect Geralf from removal.

Fae of Wishes can open you a toolbox of some good stuff from your sideboard.

I also suggest running some more draw and interaction beyond counterspells.

This looks incredibly explosive. I imagine it as one of those decks where, if it does it's thing, it's almost unbeatable.

What do you think about Crashing Drawbridge? It doesn't get affinity, but it only costs 2 and if you get it down early it can make drawing and dumping your hand pay off faster on later turns. I really like the drawbridge in attacks builds and, I don't know, it just came to mind when looking at this. If you got turn 1 sol ring into drawbridge and then turn 2 dumped your hand, it might be nuts.

All in all, awesome deck! It looks really fleshed out as is :)

I really like this take on elfball. It looks like it has a lot of avenues of play, which I have a mono-green elfball deck, and a lot of the time that's the downside. Like, sometimes it feels like I'm just waiting on the right card rather than being proactive with what's on the board, and that seems like a way that this deck really shines. Here are a couple things I can think of from my green deck and from a little bit of experience I have in modern golgari.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds Emergence Zone and/or Yeva, Nature's Herald can give your creatures flash, which is always nice, but I'd expect it to play very well with deathtouch. Just the threat of flashing things in when you are a creature deck can keep your opponents from attacking.

Crashing Drawbridge will net a ton of mana if you get it down early. It's slower than Thousand-Year Elixir but it can also give you some surprise attacks that elixir can't.

Vivien, Monsters' Advocate is a really nice planeswalker. The tutor ability can be invaluable. It's similar to Pyre of Heroes which is also an awesome card for creature decks.

Eternal Witness and Den Protector are great for recurring things that got removed. Survivors' Bond is great with them too. It can get back and elf plus witness who can then get something else back or wait in hand.

Pattern of Rebirth is a viscous card if they don't have enchantment removal. A lot of the time it basically makes a creature unblockable or makes everyone at the table stop attacking into you.

Kenrith's Transformation kinda just does it all. It's removal, it draws a card, you can buff a dork if you really need to. All in all, it's a very versatile card and always preforms something great.

Wren's Run Packmaster can just be a nice beater that takes the place of a dork, it can be a mana dump, it can create amazing blockers, and can even be tutored by Elvish Harbinger as well as any other creature tutor. It's a good creature by itself and if you do ever go infinite mana, it's a wincon with drawbridge or another haste enabler.

Lolth, Spider Queen is a great planeswalker for a deck with a lot of dies triggers. Getting the ultimate is not that hard and it can turn all of your small creatures into huge threats. Might be a little pricey though, and planeswalkers are never the best in edh, but it's a very potent one.

Slippery Bogbonder gives you a flash in blocker and also protection for any of your creatures. Best part is that the hexproof sticks around and you can even send counters to that creature. It's nice when your counterspell adds another creature to your board.

That's all I can think of :) This deck looks pretty awesome, and is giving me ideas on how to spice up my own one. There are plenty of infinite mana combos in elfball too, but it seemed like you were going for more of an attacking strategy.

Thanks for posting this one!

I love this list! Curious to me why it doesn't have Cyclonic Rift, unless it's a budget thing. Open Into Wonder might also be good. I was thinking that the addition of Burst of Speed or Crashing Drawbridge might help quite a bit, because chaining a bunch of cantrips into all your creatures having haste would be much better for pushing through damage.

I don't mean to be negative, but I don't know what Mana Breach is doing in here. It's going to hurt you for more than your opponents, since your game plan is to chain a bunch of low CMC spells together.
