Elvish Champion

Creature — Elf

Other Elf creatures get +1/+1 and have forestwalk. (They're unblockable as long as defending player controls a Forest.)

Looks solid. Some ideas:

Hope this helped. If you're interested, feel free to check my Elf-tribal with Ezuri in command.

Collected Company is one of the better cards in a deck like this.

If you run Green Sun's Zenith, I think you should run Dryad Arbor 100% of the time. Having the option to 1 mana ramp tutor as needed is the best in the game, even if it's fragile.

If you want to do the whole tap ten elves thing Benefactor's Draught, Vitalize, and Mobilize are useful. And as long as you're using mana dorks, they are good throughout the game. Birchlore Rangers is also a good mana dork for getting either color as needed if it matters. Like some of the others you have it can use creatures with summoning sickness.

Add Regal Force, you'll have the mana, and it draws infinity. Toski, Bearer of Secrets is also amazing at this.

Consider Patriarch's Bidding for when your ridiculous board state earns the response it will deserve. Also Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant

I cant build a green/black deck without Gaze of Granite and Pernicious Deed. They are great

Timberwatch Elf for the commander, or maybe Gempalm Strider might be better than Overrun. Trample isnt so important with so many creatures that will likely outnumber blockers, and the extra card from cycling and utility of another creature is worth considering. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is already in your deck and he's definitely the best option though. Beastmaster Ascension also works like a really inexpensive overun and turns on really easily.

Some of the green and black backgrounds area awesome Criminal Past, Cultist of the Absolute, Haunted One and Raised by Giants will stick around for the next cast even after your commander gets removed.

Consider Constant Mists or even instead of Fog, however I really don't think you need any of the fog effects. Honestly, you might actually need to worry about other people's fogs instead. Questing Beast is the only card that is capable of piercing though a Teferi's Protection or The One Ring in these colors. THrow in a Natural Order and you can get that, or a Craterhoof Behemoth when it matters most

Viridian Zealot, Reclamation Sage, Nullmage Shepherd, and Elvish Lyrist are useful for removal. You already have Glissa, but I dont think she's enough.

Elvish Champion might be your best lord. Pair it with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. Also definitely want to add Shizo, Death's Storehouse. Having lathril connect is important.

If you keep the tyvar planeswalkers, Harald Unites the Elves does a lot.

Kithkin Mourncaller might draw cards to use with your excessive mana. Leaf-Crowned Visionary, Skemfar Avenger, Miara, Thorn of the Glade do too, at a cost.

consider Crop Rotation. It can get nythkos, yavimaya.

Looking at your list you have almost nothing that turns on lathril in combat. look at Alpha Authority, Familiar Ground, Alpha Status, Gift of Doom, Rancor, Spider Umbra, Alpha Authority, Canopy Cover, Vorrac Battlehorns. Fallen Ideal is possibly my favorite with the die/sacrifce synergies you already have. Im not a fan of token doublers. I think youd be better off powering up lathril to make more tokens in the first place.

I would dump any ramp card that costs more than 3

Does Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth affect opponents lands as well? If so, would that mean that forestwalk is in effect if Yavi is on the battlefield such as with Elvish Champion?

RedTornadoPlayer, I think the updates you made look really good! I think you’re going to have a lot of fun with this version of the deck. Good call on keeping Elvish Champion and Joraga Warcaller in there. Those are both solid pump cards.

Generally, I try to have one land for every two cards in the deck and then add more if my mana curve is high. I think your mana curve is solid, and with the generous amount of mana ramp you have, I think you’ll be just fine with 21 lands. If you play a few games and find yourself mana starved, you can always add more later.

I hope this deck brings you many wins and a lot of fun with your friends!

Thank you for the comment, lespaul977!

Yes, I played a lot more Magic back in the day, and this deck was basically given to me by a friend with a few cards added when I played a little in Zendikar.

I tried to remove a lot of cards that I only had a single copy of, however I thought keeping the Joraga Warcaller and Elvish Champion were good to keep as a bomb, as well as Priest of Titania sort of being another copy of Elvish Archdruid.

One thing I've always been fuzzy on was how much mana was a good amount to have. Is 21 land a good amount with the mana ramp from Elvish Archdruid, Llanowar Elves, and Priest of Titania?

Also I did change the deck to Casual. I didn't realize that was an option in the list, since it was so far down, but thank you for pointing it out!

If I cut a card that is one of the better ones, do let me know. I'm not exactly sure what's great and what's not, so any help would be appreciated!

And once again, thank you for the help!

Ugh, that's such a bummer :( Pendelhaven is fairly cheap in the Anthologies printing. I honestly thought Elvish Champion was inexpensive but I just looked it up so scratch that! I'd definitely keep the one you have sealed and in mint condition. That's a pretty cool thing to have in your collection! Kaysa is reasonably inexpensive financially, but maybe too mana expensive to be useful. For the same cost you can cast Overrun and everyone gets trample too!
