Hunt381 on Too Many Elves on the Shelf

Deruvid I’m hesitant to cut out all the her Elvish Harbinger or all of the Summoner's Pact . Mostly because I’m a situation when I have trouble getting the right card draw, Summoner's Pact allows me to tutor for Elvish Harbinger . After getting her I can search for Elvish Promenade or I move to pull out Maralen of the Mornsong which then leads to me tutor for Doubling Season .

Couple suggestions.

  1. You're already at 4 Lead the Stampede , plus a Harmonize and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for card draw and selection. I'd either cut all 4 Summoner's Pact or all 4 Elvish Harbinger to lower your deck size back towards 60.

  2. Your land count is a tad low, imo, especially because you're only running 8 1-drop accelerators. I recommend swapping out Lead the Stampede for either Winding Way or Oath of Nissa to help smooth land draws.

Elvish Archdruid and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as the last 2 infinite mana dorks in the deck. Elvish Harbinger as it counts as an elf, and tutors for your elves Ezuri, Renegade Leader to regenerate your elves Savage Summoning + Walking Ballista is an uncounterable win-con Mirror Entity + Wirewood Symbiote is amazing synergy add Wood Elves to that, and get all your forests Veil of Summer is really good. So is Mandate of Peace .

I also play selvala EVERYBODY PARL(T)AY [Combo][Primer]

Hey, nice version of Freyalise.

I would stay away from artifact ramp that doesn't make green mana. It's just not needed, green mana is too important and Elves calling card is making mana so you shouldn't have any trouble doing that. Joraga Treespeaker can be pretty powerful ramp one drop Elf. Arbor Elf is another one drop mana Elf. Land ramp spells are the same, while they can get you a Forest then aren't Elves. Instead play Elves who can land ramp or get you a Forest: Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , Sylvan Ranger . Any time you can get an effect from a spell with an Elf then play the Elf instead.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Enter the Unknown
  • Rampant Growth
  • Kodama's Reach
  • Thran Dynamo
  • Lotus Bloom

Quirion Ranger , Wirewood Symbiote and Wirewood Lodge can be busted with Archdruid and Priest to make a lot of green mana even infinite mana with Umbral Mantle or budget Sword of the Paruns . Ranger and Symbiote together combo which can be good with an Elf who has an ETB (enter the battlefield) ability such as Visionary or Reclamation Sage .

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Hunting Triad
  • Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar

Fauna Shaman , Elvish Harbinger , Wirewood Herald and Fierce Empath are Elf creature tutors to tutor for an Elf or a finisher creature. Fauna can be repeatable creature tutor getting into your hand the Elves you want. I like Genesis with Fauna because Fauna can put it into your graveyard which then becomes a repeatable way to recur Elves from your graveyard, board wipe insurance.

Herald can be some more board wipe insurance because when it dies you get to tutor for an Elf. Empath can tutor for Regal Force who's good mass draw card with Elves or Ibex or Vorinclex. Yes, Freyalise's -6 is a mass draw effect, but this effect is a worth having some redundancy since since it's so good with Elves.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Kalonian Twingrove
  • Kaysa
  • Elvish Piper
  • Drove of Elves
  • Mul Daya Channelers
  • Ambush Commander

Elves have a tendency to run out of steam if you don't have a repeatable draw engine. Consider Beast Whisperer , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Skullclamp ? Skullcamp is busted draw with Freyalise's ability to make 1/1 Elf tokens. It and Bestiary are artifacts within the budget here that are worth playing.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Primeval Bounty
  • Vivien of the Arkbow
  • Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

I offer more advice if you would like it. Good luck with your deck.

Does this deck have problems getting enough red mana? Seems like it might. Something I think might help would be going truly tribal with it, removing some of your more restrictive dorks for better elves. Specifically, I'm thinking remove Druid of the Cowl, Elvish Rejuvenator, Leaf Glider, Orochi Leafcaller, and Vine Trellis. You could even remove the Draconic Disciple if you want to go hard elf tribal.

My recommended replacement cards include Beastcaller Savant , Elvish Harbinger , Lifespring Druid , Paradise Druid , and Elvish Archdruid .

Zking on Mayael the Anima Updated

I’ve ran Anima for quite a while now and have fine tuned my deck pretty well to ramp hard and kill out combo decks. In your deck list your running a lot of the same stuff. I definitely recommend putting in defense of the heart, in my deck if I get it to go off I get my kill combo out of blightsteel and xenagos and one shot somebody (works especially well in early game). I don’t know what your price range is but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is amazing for ramping mana off anything you pull out with Anima.

I would also recommend running Elvish Harbinger for not only ramp, but if you end up drawing big creatures you can tutor for elvish piper so you can play them, or tutor for selvala for massive ramp once Anima goes off.

I would consider adding more artifacts into your Anima deck. Thousand-Year Elixir allows Anima to go off twice in one turn with enough mana and gives everything haste (helps your mana dorks tap the turn you play them). I would recommend investing into a mana vault, and a Chromantic lantern. Also Sensei's Divining Top is game changing for Anima just because it allows you to filter the top cards of your deck so you don’t draw those big creatures and get to play them off Anima.

For enchantments I definitely recommend defense of the heart, Asceticism (protects your creatures, and you can regenerate), and Sylvan Library if you can acquire one. Sylvan library helps provide card advantage.

For creatures, unfortunately Iona is banned now :(, so in my deck I actually swapped her out for Sneak Attack which is super fun. Another good card is the new red cavalier from core set 2020. I would also recommend taking gaddock out (he hurts).
