TheVectornaut on Elven

As with most new decks, I'd recommend starting any edits by thinning down to 60 cards. Your land count is really low for a 100 card deck, but it should be fine for a 60 card deck with enough mana dorks, so I'd cut 40 from the nonlands. The best cards to remove are anything with poor cost efficiency or minimal impact in the ramp archetype. Elvish Mystic is an example of a card to keep because it serves as a cheap accelerant towards your biggest threats. By contrast, Orochi Leafcaller does (almost) literally nothing in a mono-green deck except be a 1 mana 1/1. On the bomb side of things, I'd choose Terra Stomper over Arcbound Wanderer every time, especially since Wanderer only has synergy with the aforementioned snake. Then you have something like Demon's Horn which is pretty terrible in most black decks. And since this is a green deck, it may never trigger at all.

Once down to 60, I'd start looking for upgrades to the existing cards. Some elf ramp options I'm partial to are Joraga Treespeaker, Elvish Piper, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Craterhoof Behemoth/End-Raze Forerunners, and Archetype of Endurance.

I personally recommend Marwyn, the Nurturer as the commander for Elves due to the fact it's a worse Archdruid in the command zone. Freyalise is definitely a bomb of epic proportions, but at 5 cmc I personally wouldn't use it as the commander.

Also, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, Wild Growth, Heritage Druid, Nettle Sentinel are all musts for elf tribal. Gyre Sage can also be reasonably powerful.

I'd also cut Myriad Landscape for another basic Forest, and find room for Arbor Elf. Birds of Paradise is worth considering as well, but if you don't want to shell that out then you're good.

Llanowar Tribe is also a great spell.

That's a great starting point. There are some more things I'd recommend, but I'll have to come back later.

MrXilas - haven't had a chance to run any pedh. Though I assure you this list has both ramp and removal. Though I have gold fished it a few times and found its main flaw being draw engines.

1: Lower the land count. You won't want to draw into lands after you play Rafiq in this setup.

2: Focus on quicker ramp. Cards like Mox Tantalite are too slow for this deck. Creature ramp- Elvish Mystic and co., Avacyn's Pilgrim will provide more benefit. Farseek/Nature's Lore will statistically guarantee turn 3 Rafiq in a 2-land opening hand.

3: Removing equipment cost effects are gimmicky, and the equipment relying them are winmore. Rafiq only needs 1 attached artifact or enchantment to begin taking players out.

4: You have 2 board-removal spells. This deck relies on 1 creature: you will get overwhelmed more often than not due to lack of a formidable presence. Add a tutor or 2-3 more board-removal spells to ensure this does not occur.

Cool deck! You might like these: Chromatic Orrery, Hope of Ghirapur, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest, Seton, Krosan Protector, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro, Sakiko, Mother of Summer, Baru, Fist of Krosa, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Bonders' Enclave

You might consider cutting these: Three Visits (doesn't get Reki out faster, whereas Llanowar Elves does. It is cool that the land comes in untapped and is nice with things like Nissa and Vernal Bloom though. I suppose it depends on whether you prefer speed or late-game resilience), Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Guardian Project (since 40% of your deck is legendary, Reki alone may be enough draw power), Abundance, Vivien's Arkbow, Elemental Bond, Dosan the Falling Leaf (nonbos with Yeva and could mess you up if you need to cast Heroic Intervention in response to a board wipe)

Lanzo493 on Sequencing in Monogreen and Gruul

I’ve played B/G elves in modern, so I’ve had a similar experience to yours. It’s also an aggro deck. It’s centered around Collected Company. So I’ll just share my perspective and see if the shoe fits.

By playing either Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic, you have already revealed a large portion of your deck’s strategy. Basically, these are the poster boys of creature aggro decks. They are very powerful cards, and if anything is worth doing, it’s worth overdoing. Playing either one usually means you’re running a play set of both. I haven’t seen decks run less than 8 unless they have 0 in the deck. So don’t worry too much about giving your opponent too much information in game 1. You don’t have much to hide. Aggro decks have the greatest advantage in game 1 against a deck unprepared for their speed. So don’t slow yourself down by trying to hide information. That’s what games 2 and 3 are about because that’s when you start running appropriate interaction and do the mind games.

That’s why I like aggro decks. I don’t have to worry too much about barfing my hand onto the battlefield as long as I do it quick enough that they can’t prevent it. Yes, I’ve played into more boardwipes than I care to remember, but that gets fixed with experience.

Argy on Sequencing in Monogreen and Gruul

Play what you have more of, first.

If you have 2x Elvish Mystic, and 1x Llanowar Elves, play the 2 Mystics first.

That way your opponent won't be able to guess early on that you have four of each.

gatotempo on Sequencing in Monogreen and Gruul

I have been playing a lot of Mono-Green Planeswalkers (no link) and RG aggro, and I have run into a tiny sequencing issue. These lists run 4 Llanowar Elves and 4 Elvish Mystic. I have hands sometimes where I have 2 of one of them and 1 of the other. I have trouble figuring out how to sequence these hands to reveal the least information. Thanks for all of the help!
