Some extra cards to consider include Triumph of the Hordes, Elves of Deep Shadow, Copperhorn Scout, Seedborn Muse, Elvish Harbinger, End-Raze Forerunners would be a super budget Craterhoof though no where near as good either...does give your creatures trample though, Allosaurus Shepherd is stupid expensive, but insanely good because it makes your green elves uncounterable and can give you a huge bump in power as well, Fauna Shaman, Chord of Calling, Harvest Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Beastmaster Ascension, Doubling Season and Parallel Lives are both very expensive as well, but double the number of tokens you produce, and Tyvar Kell. Feel free to ask my why to any of these, they just seem solid for the combat elves strategy, not all of them necessarily belong in your list, just some options to consider. some of them are very expensive, i think i mentioned that with each though...

Ryotenchi I know the odds difference isn't huge. I've said that it isn't big in both of my previous posts. I'm just saying it still exists, and there should always be a card worth dropping (if the minimum deck size were reduced to 50, for example, you can guarantee everyone in the competitive scene would be dropping more cards from their deck to accommodate that new limit). As far as exact odds, you can check out this site which does all the math for you: https://www.mtgnexus.com/tools/drawodds/.

The Horobi and Tetzimoc interaction is interesting, and something i'd definitely missed on first read. It still feels risky to me, with 2 copies of one and 1 copy of the other, without many easy ways to fetch them - but it does look like a pretty fun interaction! Have you considered Fauna Shaman as a way to get the combo online early (or pitch cards that aren't helpful for the matchup?). It might be a helpful creature considering how many 1-ofs you're running, could help you be a more toolboxy build,.

Hey, well done on a budget, but what's with the manabase?

I understand this is budget, but you can't possibly think that 36 basic lands for a three color deck is any where near competitive; deck is in the competitive hub. Where's Command Tower ? The majority of rest of the deck other than Disentomb and Raise Dead is built with a competitive mindset therefore I know you have good card sense with the budget that you have. Even on a low budget you can include playable dual lands:

My advice is if budget is a concern cut some expensive price cards to add some playable dual lands. Grim Tutor and Heroic Intervention are two cuts to consider since these cards can be replaced by lower price options Lazotep Plating and Profane Tutor . On a budget Fauna Shaman is not worth it since it could be replaced with a less expensive price tutor Shared Summons .

Consider a backup win condition that doesn't require that you draw your entire deck and hope that Oracle or Maniac live/resolve? Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Venser, Shaper Savant and Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be infinitely blinked or cast for three different win conditions. Peregrine Drake + Venser, Shaper Savant + Yarok, the Desecrated is another infinite mana combo.

Consider budget backups to all your main combo creatures? Backups are helpful because without them the combo is very fragile, easy for an opponent to disrupt.

Good luck with your deck.

Fauna Shaman lost out to Fiend Artisan and I never went back and changed things up to try and fit it in. Its worth a reevaluation, for sure.

Survival of the Fittest is a card I regret not picking up a long time ago. My Earthcraft and Serra's Sanctum were cards I got when they were much less expensive. But yeah, it would be great.

Martyr's Cause and Attrition were considered but I wanted to make as much room for various other things as I could and, when I broke it down, neither of these cards fit into my game plan the way I envisioned the deck playing out. As far as single target removal goes, I know I don't have all that much, but the protection aspect of the deck has been fairly reliable and I haven't felt the need for more. I'm really liking Out of Time for both removal and protection because Tayam is sneaky.

Have you considered Fauna Shaman to search for your enchantment creatures, then reanimate the thing you discarded? Or Survival of the Fittest , if you own one, but it's unreasonably pricy now...

Attrition and Martyr's Cause are two more fantastic enchantments which might work well in a grindy deck like this :)
