Elvish Archdruid Discussion

Hey, I'm impressed, well done building your deck on a budget with like 90% cards from Commander Legends.

Commander Legends was an amazing set for Elves especially Miara. Unfortunately, to make any real impact from upgrades you're going to want to add more cards from other sets, but most cards you add could be $1 or less each and still make a huge impact.

An advantage of Elves as a tribe is ramp, more specifically one drop mana Elves and Elves who can tap to make a lot of mana. No other tribe has as many one drop mana creatures or creatures who can make a ton of mana. By adding more mana Elves you can reduce the amount of lands while increasing the amount of Elves. More ramp from Elves is wanted by both your Commanders to cast Nadier quicker and to pay more into X with Numa. Both of your Commanders don't do much without lots of ramp.

Archdruid is the budget Elf who defines the tribe since he's an anthem for Elves and can make as much green mana as Elves you control. Marwyn and Joiner are good with Numa, Joraga Chieftain since they want counters put on them, they care about how much power they have. Marwyn is also good with Elf tokens since each token that's created puts a counter on her. Guidance has excellent interaction with Arbor Elf if you enchant a Forest or Woodland Chasm .

Other mana rocks are more sources of ramp. Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are two budget staple cards in Commander. Golgari Signet is another two drop ramp source upgrade.


These cards would expand on the Elf token theme and Prowess is unique since it's an Elf that's not a creature. Expanding on the token strategy makes Nadier better. Warmaster is another mana sink to pump and give Elves deathtouch. Elderfang doesn't create tokens like the other cards, but it has good interaction with them. Letting you swing with your Elves and opponents have to make difficult decisions about what to do.

I offer more advice including cuts to make. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

These too: Lathril, Blade of the Elves , Wirewood Channeler , Elvish Archdruid , Priest of Titania , Elvish Warmaster , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Lys Alana Huntmaster , Tyvar Kell , Wolverine Riders , Fauna Shaman

Personally I would cut these: Treeshaker Chimera (costly, not on theme), Sheoldred (costly, general already kinda fills the same role), Wildborn Preserver (weak effect), Penumbra Wurm (costly, not on theme), Pelakka Wurm (costly, not on theme), Protean Hulk (costly), Noxious Gearhulk (costly, weak effect), Destructor Dragon (costly), Gift of Doom (costly), Kokusho, the Evening Star (costly), Moldgraf Monstrosity (costly), Verdurous Gearhulk (costly, weak effect), Claws of Gix (there are plenty of better sac outlets), Entreat the Dead (costly)

Hey, nice budget version, less than $50 is impressive.

I recommend getting the Elven Empire Kaldheim Commander deck for $20-$25 since in the precon are several cards that can help your deck, most importantly Elvish Archdruid and Beast Whisperer , but also Elven Ambush and Elvish Promenade . There's some staples in the precon: Sol Ring , Arcane Signet and Command Tower .

Llanowar Wastes and Rogue's Passage are some other budget lands to consider adding.

I would recommend some more mana dorks like Heritage Druid or Elvish Archdruid

Keqing420 the ultimate start for Mt current set up is t1 forest heritage druid t2 nykthos Dwynen's Elite tap all three for 3 green and cast Elvish Archdruid t3 can come together a few ways, but either i get Beast Whisperer down and start churning down elves, or i get 1-2 elves out and make the Mana for Primal Surge. Either way if i don't get board wiped on turn 3 I'll untap with a very decent board state that i can easily generate 50+ Mana from. And that's honestly just 1 example, there's a few other ways I can get set up by turn 4.

I just noticed the champion is way down, when i was building the deck that card was almost 20$. I'll definitely consider picking up a set and the Yavimaya Dryad to get a forest across the board.

The idea of using black is very much like your view of nykthos, if i get a swamp i can't use it turn 1 to slam down a dork and it won't benefit me until turn 3 at the earliest. Now that may also be true about nykthos, but nykthos can eventually make an absolutely absurd amount of Mana which i can dump into ezuri or joraga

Keqing420 the entire deck is geared to make absurd amounts of Mana. Heritage Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, combined with a lot of elves will generate all the mana the deck needs. I don't usually make 50+ mana until turn 5, but it's not unusual to get a whole mess of elves by turn 3 that i can turn into insanity mana on turn 4. The champion isn't in my list because it's an actual physical list and I don't usually spend money on it anymore. I'm not every going to add black so Shaman of the Pack is out of the picture.

MagicMarc i can get behind your suggestions. Elvish Promenade combos with Heritage Druid to tap for mana, Elvish Archdruid to let it tap for twice as much Mana, and with marwyn when i had her in the deck. I can see it's not a popular option though lol. Ezuri is a necessary evil, i don't always spend a boat load of Mana on him, but usually even one activation is enough. So Elvish Clancaller is a very deceptive creature, it's a 2 mana lord, both of its mana is devotion to green, and once i get the mana, it can tutor for the other copies of itself. Fauna Shaman is still a great card in this deck, i usually use her to tutor for Heritage Druid, Beast Whisperer, Nettle Sentinel, or Ezuri, Renegade Leader I'll discard a mana dork or a clancaller or something like that and get what I need. I tried imperious perfect, great card but it's too high costed and not enough reward

abby315 I'm definitely going to invest in a craterhoof when i can, it's certainly the one part of my deck that is currently lacking. I'll definitely make use of your suggestions, I'm definitely on the joraga ezuri train at this point. Steel leaf is in the deck for 2 reasons: he's a decent beater overall, and he's a huge devotion boost. I will definitely cut the imperiouses, the marwyns, and I'll put real thought into cutting the visionaries. I'll also cut the prominades, but until i have a craterhoof I'm going to leave my surge count at 2 because I actively don't want to run through the entire deck with one go (i don't have haste). The surge gives me a massive presence very quickly and potentially the Mana from Heritage Druid or Elvish Archdruid to get it done with ezuri. I appreciate the advice and will begin the necessary changes

DemMeowsephs Thank you for the suggestions!!

As of right now, I am actually waiting for an Elvish Archdruid to arrive in the mail to put into the deck. Along with that one, Elvish Soultiller is also waiting to arrive.

Staff of Domination is another one that I had planned to pick up from a local resident, but restrictions have put a damper on that. As for the Sword of the Paruns I did not even know that was a card!

Finally, the land base still needs to be tweaked a lot. Most of my good stuff are in other decks. I appreciate the feedback :) Ill be sure to add most of that, for sure.
