Fyndhorn Elves Discussion

Something I can always recommend is ramp. Its fun smashing face with Dinos (10/10 would recommend), but you need to cast them or your commander first and its good to do it faster to get more value.
Naya colors have some good sources of ramp- for cheap we've got Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves (just got reprinted at common in Commander Legends!), Elvish Mystic, Commander's Sphere Avacyn's Pilgrim, Zhur-Taa Druid,Sakura-Tribe Elder, Talisman of Impulse, and Talisman of Conviction (this one varies in price a bit- most places I visit have cheap copies). Not as cheap there's Incubation Druid, Birds of Paradise, Sol Ring, Talisman of Unity, and Arcane Signet. More expensive there's also Smothering Tithe and Dockside Extortionist.

multimedia making it hard to give suggestions again lol. So, I've brewed this guy up before as sort of a troll on one of the guys that plays at my lgs - Seedborn Muse and Wilderness Reclamation are absolute must have. Quest for Renewal fills a similar roll I'd actually increase the amount of dorks your playing. Priest of Titania, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, and Fyndhorn Elves will all help you get out your commander stupid early. Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are basically elves in enchantment form. Sol Ring, Arcane Signet and Fellwar Stone put in work too. As far as your control package Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, Reality Shift and Beast Within give you some removal incase something slips through your counter magic. If you get a Seedborn Muse engine going Spell Burst or Capsize can give you a soft lock on the game.

Constant Mists with a Crucible of Worlds + Life from the Loam package is fairly thematic and effective. A Crop Rotation to snag up your Glacial Chasm will do wonders when facing down those pesky aggro decks. I'm also a big fan of Wilderness Reclamation and Quest for Renewal (assuming you can add in more dorks) Noble Hierarch, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Priest of Titania, Fyndhorn Elves and Avacyn's Pilgrim typically get the ball rolling consistently :)

This was a pet commander for me for a long time. I loved getting him out early. Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic, Wild Cantor and Fyndhorn Elves have always been mvps for me. Lotus Petal helps out too but I've moved away from that now that I got Chrome Mox. Free creatures like Peregrine Drake and Cloud of Faeries make, making animar big a snap but definitely can start getting into the degenerate territory if you couple them with other things like Cloudstone Curio or Aluren (this seems like it's meant to be more casual but I figured I'd suggest some of the cool high end options too)

Interesting topic Ramble, I've been meaning to respond for the last day or two but have just been super busy, but let me provide a mana base formula I stumbled on a few years back after noticing a pattern in my deck building - might be something to try out and see if you find similar results, as I find it's very rare to get either flooded or mana screwed using this formula. I'll provide a couple of examples as well - more for the casual-competitive decks, as my cEDH decks don't always follow the formula as rigorously.
The basic formula for mana-producing lands is: Starting base of 30 mana-producing lands, plus additional lands equal to the CMC of your commander, plus additional lands equal to the average CMC of the deck, minus designated values for each mana rock, mana dork, mana spell and draw spell equal to or less than the CMC of the commander.
The first example is for my Zada, Hedron Grinder deck: Yada...Yada...Zada. In this case, the formula is 30 + 4CMC (commander) + 2.28 average CMC, or 36.28. I then subtract designated values for the following cards in the deck: -1.0 for Mana Crypt, -0.5 for Sol Ring (or any other 0 or 1 CMC rock), -0.25 for Thought Vessel (or any other 2 or 3 CMC rock), Battle Hymn, Brightstone Ritual, Traitorous Greed and Dockside Extortionist, and finally -0.10 for each of the draw spells in the deck: Accelerate, Boiling Blood, Crimson Wisps, Expedite, Fists of Flame, Stun and Renegade Tactics for a total reduction of 3.45 and a final value of 32.83 (rounded up to 33).
The second example includes a more aggressive reduction in mana-producing lands based on my Elf tribal Marwyn, the Nurturer deck: Elves Tap and Slap (Marwyn Tribal Counters). The formula here is 30 + 3CMC (commander) + 2.64 average CMC, or 35.64. I then subtract for the following cards: -0.50 for Sol Ring, -0.25 for Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Gyre Sage, Incubation Druid, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Visionary, Priest of Titania, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Viridian Joiner, Wood Elves, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Rhonas's Monument, Gaea's Touch and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip. Finally, I subtract -0.10 for Elvish Visionary, Llanowar Visionary and Inspiring Call for a total reduction of 5.30 and a final value of 30.34 (rounded down to 30).
Although the reduction values could be considered a little arbitrary in certain deck concepts, this formula has held pretty accurate since I started keeping track of it. I hope you find this useful in the future, and happy brewing.

Okay, sorry for the delay. Was in the middle of a move.
So first I think some degree of stack interaction would benefit this deck. I don't know what your meta is like, but dealing with enemy control could be a serious pain as you try to establish yourself, so cards like Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Deflecting Swat (or other efficient redirect effects), or even Veil of Summer and Vexing Shusher (use this guy!) could prove to be worth the card slots when the game comes down to protecting your board state or making sure one of your spells resolves.
As for general upgrades I would consider adding in more removal like Beast Within and swap out Wilt for Nature's Claim for the cheaper cost because I feel like the cycling isn't super necessary and 4 life is insignificant. Then, if losing the cycling really bothers you, you can throw in Runic Armasaur for some really sweet card draw that also fits your theme. Additionally, for some pseudo card draw that also has the potential to mess with your opponent's hands AND is most definitely a puzzle, there's Teferi's Puzzle Box. It's a wheel that keeps on wheeling.. sort of. I would recommend potentially adding in more land destruction like Wildfire, Decree of Annihilation, or Obliterate along with recursion for yourself through stuff like Life from the Loam, Ramunap Excavator, Crucible of Worlds, and Titania, Protector of Argoth. Speaking of her, Priest of Titania could probably replace Llanowar Visionary, and along with that, more cheap elf mana dorks i.e. Llanowar Elves and Fyndhorn Elves would do you a lot of good. If you go the MLD route stepping your ramp up is gonna be really important so you can rebuild your board before your opponents can (which is also why you have land recursion), so you might want stuff like Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth, Carpet of Flowers, or even Exploration if you can swing it. Finally for some additional creature-based wincons, we could put in Conspicuous Snoop + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker as well as Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts . To tutor for these you could use Goblin Recruiter to fetch Kiki-Jiki and Snoop, or Imperial Recruiter to tutor for a specific creature you need or just use him to get his gobbo friend and then assemble your win. Some additional misc. cards you might find fun and want to consider: Magus of the Moon, Bane of Progress, Null Rod, Trinisphere, Urabrask the Hidden, Woodland Bellower, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (don't do this to your friends lol), Ruination, Jokulhaups, and Root Maze.
Not all of this is going to fit in the budget you gave me, I just wanted to give you a lot of options and potentially stuff that you can build toward in the future if you decide you want to really invest in this deck. Hope this helps. :^)

You've got 19 ramp cards, which with a 5 color deck is fairly high. You could turn a couple of signets into Nature's Lore and maybe Skyshroud Claim as they both can tutor up dual lands into play. Your curve's upper arch is at 3, and with your ramp I could see you possibly having a working deck at somewhere around 34-36 lands. Assuming you want to add 6 lands, I'd recommend Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper, Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Karn's Bastion, Tarnished Citadel, and Ancient Tomb. Orochi Leafcaller, Heroes' Podium, Blackblade Reforged, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, and Avacyn's Pilgrim. If you want a more control deck, you are gonna have to make further cuts for removal and counter spells, as well as some hate cards, but that decision is up to you. It looks great for a first EDH deck, +1
