Elvish Guidance Discussion

Lanzo493 on Green Mean Mana Machine (EDH)

You've got all of the big mana dorks like, Priest of Titania in here except for one. You still don't have Elvish Guidance. It's great, and works even better with Arbor Elf out.

Elvish Guidance is a fun one with Arbor Elf. I also really like Bloodline Shaman and Descendants' Path for card draw in green! Gilt-Leaf Archdruid is also extremely fun for turning your mana dorks into late-game cantrips, and stealing people's lands. :)

Elfball was the first EDH deck I ever built, and I still have my list here: How Aluring~~ (Competitive Aggro/Combo Elves) It's a little out of date, but it has some fun ideas and unique cards.

Lanzo493 on Ezuri's Elven Warfare

How about Elvish Guidance and Wirewood Channeler? They get you lots of mana just like Elvish Archdruid. Kindred Summons can give you an instant army right before you untap. Being an instant let’s you keep up mana for regeneration with Ezuri as well. Having played elves in modern a lot, one thing that I always try to avoid is playing into a board wipe. Running Heroic Intervention can protect you from that. Or if you want a budget option, there’s Wrap in Vigor.

Lanzo493 on Never Trust an Elf!

Elvish Guidance is the 4th big mana card for elves you can run. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a good upgrade once you can get one. Shamanic Revelation and Regal Force are great draw in elves since they tend to go wide easily. On a side note, if you’re fine with going infinite, your commander can do that once it can tap for 4 mana and is equipped with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns. Staff of Domination is the strongest one that would win the game on the spot with your commander making at least 5 mana.

Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow (Budget)

For those who're following the thread, Uzeep's questions were answered via Discord. However, the main thing I wanted to address in his comment is his mention of tutoring Shaman of Forgotten Ways. It is NEVER in our gameplan to tutor this, so we never care about where this card is until we've established Infinite Mana and an Outlet, only then do we look for kill loops which is also when the sky's the limit.

Due to his region certain cards were unavailable, so we also brewed up some changes to rectify this. His variation will be exactly the same with the following exceptions:

Creature (6)

Enchantment (3)

I highly recommend swapping in Ezuri, Renegade Leader for your commander over Freyalise. His regenerate ability helps a ton against board wipes, and he is a "win the game now" button with the Overrun ability. If you make that swap, you'll have access to Overrun from the command zone, so you could cut the spells you have that do the same thing and make room for more elves.

If you do make the swap, and you like infinite combos, pick up an Umbral Mantle. Mantle + any elf that makes 4+ mana (usually Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, but also sometimes Marwyn or Viridian Joiner) = infinite green mana, which, with Ezuri, makes any creature a lethal trample attack. It's also cheap!

A couple other cheap Elf synergies:
Quirion Ranger - it's in legacy elves for a reason!
Bloodline Shaman - to find you more elves
Dwynen's Elite - 2 elves for one!
Elvish Guidance - turns your land into a Priest of Titania
Primal Command - deals with pesky noncreatures and is a tutor

My elf deck is here if interested: How Aluring~~ (Competitive Aggro/Combo Elves)
