Arbor Elf over Elvish Mystic. Its a little cheaper for the same effect. You could also just do Arbor Elf over Druid of the Cowl because it costs one less and the additional 2 toughness is never going to matter.

Okay so I'm new to deckbuilding, especially for EDH so I'm just wondering if anyone has any useful/practical suggestions for this deck. I thought Abomination of Llanowar was a cool card, so I wanted to build around that concept of getting a lot of elves onto the field and my graveyard to really boost its power and toughness.

One thing I'll mention is that, with the exception of cards that are already present in the deck, I don't want to spend more then $3-5 on a single card. So keeping all of this in mind, any suggestions?

Commander: - Abomination of Llanowar

Planeswalkers: - Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury - Tyvar Kell

Creatures: - Elvish Eulogist - Elvish Archdruid - Imperious Perfect - Lys Alana Huntmaster - Immaculate Magistrate - Marwyn, the Nurturer - Elvish Visionary - Shaman of the Pack - Lathril, Blade of the Elves - Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen - Beast Whisperer - Timberwatch Elf - Elvish Mystic - Canopy Tactician - Poison-Tip Archer - Skemfar Avenger - Skemfar Shadowsage - Wolverine Riders - Ruthless Winnower - Wellwisher - Golgari Findbroker - Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Rhys the Exiled - Nightshade Harvester - Gilt-Leaf Winnower - Elvish Doomsayer - Storrev, Devkarin Lich - Nadier's Nightblade - Fyndhorn Elves - Llanowar Elves

Instants: - Putrefy - Golgari Charm - Murder - Village Rites - Grisly Salvage - Wrap in Vigor - Cast Down - Malakir Rebirth  Flip - Ghastly Demise - Infuse with Vitality

Sorcery: - Cultivate - Rampant Growth - Eyeblight Massacre - Shamanic Revelation - Casualties of War - Dig Up - Victimize - Sign in Blood - Spark Harvest - Diabolic Tutor - Deadly Brew - Bone Shards - Elvish Promenade

Balaam__ do you have any recommendations for me?

I'm almost sure that I am going to replace the Harald Unites the Elves but I'm debating on one more Shaman of the Pack or a 4th Elvish Mystic.

Hey, Balaam__, thanks for the upvote! Actually the three Elvish Mystic are pretty consistent, to be honest; there is rarely a game I don't have seven creatures on the field by turn 3.

Ultimately this deck was designed to play against my friend group so there could definitely be changes needed to make this deck more competitive. For example, I am currently debating exchanging one copy of Harald Unites the Elves for something else, but I am not really sure on what yet.

Thank you so much Balaam! You've helped me a little and saved me a lot of money! I just was wondering if you have a solution to the most common problem I run into with elf decks. Early on, when I'm building up my mana with things like Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic they kill them off and it ruins it all. What would you suggest to solve that problem? I already have Spellskite which I think would help.

Looking a lot better. I'd playtest it to see how it goes if I were you. You're now at 25 creatures, and with a creature-based deck you run a risk of not having enough creatures to play. As I said, playtest it and see if you're getting to play enough creatures, and if you aren't you could potentially go down one more land for something like Birds of Paradise or Elvish Mystic. However, then you're starting to tread a fine line on not having enough lands.

Ultimately, play and test the deck to see if it's to your liking and adjust from there.

That’s a little more difficult to say. Another issue I see is that there are many 1 and 2 ofs. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if they function extremely similarly (for instance if a deck runs 1x Elvish Mystic and 1x Llanowar Elves, they’re basically the same card), but with so many different creatures at 1 copy apiece synergy is lacking.

It seems the basic strategy is to ramp into a decent amount of mana quickly and then play a bomb. I’d lean into this 100% and cut anything that doesn’t contribute toward it; cards like Thornweald Archer, Talara's Battalion, Scavenging Ooze etc don’t really add anything.

Try visualizing the different wedges of your strategy. You want the best ramp cards you can afford, the best non creature spells that synergize with your goal, and the best bombs you have to capitalize on all the mana you’re generating.

Great ideas here. I do worry that your average cmc is too high though, with many 3, 4 and 5 costed cards. . Have you found the 3x Elvish Mystic to be enough ramp? Just curious, I haven’t playtested this so I’m just looking at numbers.
