Deathrite Shaman Discussion

Hey, consider Sol Ring ? It's a staple mana rock in Commander. Consider less Swamps and more Golgari dual lands? Green mana is much more important than black. 11 Swamps really reduces the consistency of having a green source turn one for a green one drop mana dork. You don't want to draw all Swamps and no Forests.
You can speed up game play and help color fixing by adding more dual lands that can ETB untapped:
- Llanowar Wastes
- Undergrowth Stadium
- Overgrown Tomb
- Nurturing Peatland
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Verdant Catacombs : gets Overgrown Tomb .
- Windswept Heath : gets Overgrown Tomb .
- Darkbore Pathway Flip
- Unclaimed Territory
Several of these lands could replace lands that always ETB tapped: Foul Orchard , Golgari Guildgate , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Rot Farm . Elves of Deep Shadow is very helpful since can make black mana. Deathrite Shaman if playing multiplayer since can exile lands from opponents graveyards.
Good luck with your deck.

Howdy! Unfortunately Deathrite Shaman has the color identity of both black and green, so you can't "legally" play that card! I'd suggest replacing it with something like Vilis, Broker of Blood as that card is BONKERS when your commander is on the field, just draw ALL the cards!
Also another card to look at could be Mind Twist . Making an opponent discard all their cards in hand can be really backbreaking!

Hi raspberryfish25 Thanks, I like playing it. Just finished a quick 1-on-1 game versus my brother-in-law's deck (all about stealing cards) and lost to my own elves. As for the mentioned cards, I've looked into all the mentioned cards in early builds, some of them will definitely make the 99 in future upgrades.
Skyshroud Poacher - Pricy but spicy, still in the back of my head for a future upgrade.
Wolverine Riders - Have played this card, but didn't do well, yielded me a few extra tokens, but got removed fairly quickly, might try it again.
Sylvan Messenger - I'm not the biggest fan of digging a few deep in the hope to fetch a good card, you can whiff easily.
Elvish Guidance - Is in the deck, done great work so far.
Harald, King of Skemfar - Like Sylvan messenger, it can whiff so hard, Land, Land, Dork, Artifact, Enchantment. Also, Tyvar Kell has to be in the deck too, to get the most out of it. Abomination of Llanowar would be the better choice in this build.
Elvish Harbinger - Like the Poacher, very good.
Sylvan Offering - This can produce an insane amount of Tokens and a big beater Treefolk token with the amount of mana the deck can produce, the only drawback for me is giving my opponent the same amount in return, I will try it out, this and Stoneforge Masterwork might work, but Lathril depended.
Elvish Clancaller - An early 2 drop Lord in play is always nice, but it doesn't come with extras, like the other lords.
Elvish Champion - Also on my future upgrade list, the best Lord around for sure.

I am really liking this deck, but I am noticing a lot of core cards from a typical Elfball style deck are missing. Have you tried any of the following cards in the deck and if so what was your experience: Deathrite Shaman , Skyshroud Poacher , Wolverine Riders , Sylvan Messenger , Lys Alana Huntmaster , Elvish Guidance , Harald, King of Skemfar , Elvish Harbinger , Sylvan Offering , Elvish Clancaller , and Elvish Champion ?

Because Deathrite Shaman was awesome and I friggin' loved it:
(I don't play pioneer, btw, does it see sufficient play there?)
Creature - Shapeshifter Rogue
: Exile target land card from a graveyard. You may look at the top card of target library. Mill a card.
, : Exile a nonland card from a graveyard. Return target nonland permanent to its owner's hand. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.
, : Exile an instant or sorcery card from a graveyard. Target opponent discards a card.
I'd like to see a white instant removal for limited.
I think I was ninja'd, see above.

God Tribal, I'd totally take the Golos-Tree path. I REALLY recommend using Chromatic Lantern to help activate Tree(in most other cases I find it pretty meh, but it's great here).
My recommended Golos plan is:
Rituals, such as Dark Ritual, Simian Spirit Guide, and Rite of Flame are good for running out Golos. Seething Song is amazing here, as it reads '3-mana golos'. Jeweled Lotus is great if you have the cash.
At this point, you're probably at an impressive 30-40 ramp spells.
You'd then include a variety of Gods. I'd recommend a package something like this:
Alternatively, you can use Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded to give all your Gods haste and kill people with hastey slaps.
