Garruk, Caller of Beasts Discussion

I agree that the +1 should not have Fight attached OR it should be a minus ability.

The -4 is incredibly weak. Compare it to Garruk, Caller of Beasts who reveals top 5 and puts ALL creatures revealed into your hand. And that's a +1 ability... He is also 6 CMC but this one is 3 colors against Garruk's green.

What if you turned the two abilities around?

Garruk, Caller of Beasts is a glaring omission

Okay, so I am quite fond of brews that are delectation to pilot, but I am beholden to recommend some changes.

Now, Panharmonicon is a fantastic card, but there are only eleven ways to trigger the thing in this deck. Two of those are Draining Whelk and Grave Sifter, so, whilst they may have their moments, they seem lacking for doubling _ETB_s. This is my same opinion for Conjurer's Closet; what value is blinking something? Flameshadow Conjuring is in the same boat. These all become useless far too quickly, save for maybe Risen Reef shenanigans. Bramble Sovereign somewhat falls under the same folly, but I don't believe it to be as narrow.

Another thing to consider is the mana costs of cards. The majority of your curve is at three, which is probably when you would want to cast your commander. Ramp at two mana is far more ideal, as athwart to Keyrunes and Cluestones. I'd cut Temur Banner, Harrow, Gruul Keyrune for Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Impulse, and Rampant Growth. Wayfarer's Bauble is also of note. Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, and Elvish Mystic each can draw cards off of some of your effects late-game whilst being incredibly effective early.

Pillar of Origins is a fine card, but it only produces mana for elemental, being twenty cards in your deck and the commander. This leaves seven lands with activated abilities and forty-two nonland, non-elemental cards that cannot be used with the Pillar. I would just use Talisman of Creativity.

Seeing as that you have ramp in the command zone, doubling down on card draw seems important. Guardian Project, Beast Whisperer, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Primordial Sage, and Vanquisher's Banner can draw off of each creature. Kindred Discovery is an especially potent one. Shamanic Revelation and Collective Unconscious each can refill the hand well, but Tishana, Voice of Thunder may just be the best form of this effect.

I would perhaps include more elementals and/or more creature tutors. Perhaps specific creatures for situations, such as Collector Ouphe and Reclamation Sage.

If budget so allows, Thassa, God of the Sea, Rhystic Study, Sylvan Library, and Cyclonic Rift are as good as they are played.

Specific to your deck, Vivien, Champion of the Wilds just seems lovely.

Seeing the decklist, it seems to have a sparse amount of interaction. Reality Shift, Incubation / Incongruity, Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Lignify, Pongify, and Rapid Hybridization are some to consider. Kenrith's Transformation even replaces itself.

I run Decimate in every deck I can. It is absolutely amazing and has literally never been lacking.

Some counter magic is always great; Supreme Will, Counterspell, and Forbid are some favourites of mine.

That shall be all from me!

I do have a couple of tribal decks along the same route as this if you so wish to peer upon them: Eladamri, Leader of Skyshroud The River Anew

Good luck and happy casting.

One more card came to my mind - Chameleon Colossus - it is (technically) cat as well and if you have enough mana, it's nice beater. (I would use Rancor as well. It gives trample to your creature and it goes back to your hand when the creature dies).

Card draw is pain in Selesnya colors, but you may use:

I struggled a lot with card draw for example with this deck - Gruul, but after adding a lot of these spells, it got much better.

Basicly I have removed the slower Planeswalker, those with high mana cost and/or high ultimate and no very usefull +1. The reason is that I just can't never use it. Thats means no more Garruk, Caller of Beasts , and Nissa, Who Shakes the World . I have replace them with Horn of Greed and Early Harvest to get more momentum on card draw and mana ramp.

I also have switch Rishkar's Expertise in favor of Shamanic Revelation because I get stuck with Rishkar's Expertise too much time waiting for the a good time to cast that never came. Also, this deck almost never loose a game in my meta. Thats means that im the primary target before the game start. Since that, I need more way to gain life. It also combo well with another modification. Game are almost alway's win with Craterhoof Behemoth and this card is better with a lot of token than fiew big fat creature. This is why I had reintegrate Beacon of Creation and add Lys Alana Huntmaster . Lys benefit from the more elf of the last update (like Eladamri, Lord of Leaves ). I had cut in the treefolk branch to make those addon, swiping out Seedguide Ash who is very slow and Leaf-Crowned Elder who lack of target to be really efficient.

Other modification are Constant Mists for a better protection. Wirewood Hivemaster for more tokens. Genesis Wave to replace some Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and other planewalkers habilities to fetch card from the top of library. Mwonvuli Acid-Moss Who can be use as bad ramp or to get rid of Maze of Ith or other "screw my day" land and Desert Twister as this the only one true removal in green (that I know).

To make room for the last 4 cards I don't remember witch other card than Tireless Tracker I have removed.

The goal was to get more synergy from land and creature type and also get more tokens as they are the main key to victory. By playing more and more this deck it's become obvious that the draw rate was never an issue with Nissa as commander, This is why I have cut in the more slow planewalker that do that kind of stuff in favor of more quickness and momentum.

Nice deck, always love me some Elves. It seems like it would be nice to squeeze in a Westvale Abbey  Flip or two, given how easy it is to have both the creature count & mana to transform it in this deck. It might not be necessary to have Unclaimed Territory given that Shaman is the only Elf that has black in its cost, and you're usually not looking to cast that on curve anyways so you should have plenty of time to draw into one of your 12 black lands.

I also feel like you could use a bit more card advantage since there are a handful of cards that you really need to see to win. Garruk, Caller of Beasts is the ideal card advantage engine if you can swing the CMC, but if you want to go a little bit lower on the curve, Vivien Reid can dig deep for high-value creatures as well. Icon of Ancestry is an interesting idea, giving you both a Lord-like anthem effect as well as card advantage when you have spare mana, as Elf decks are prone to.

I playtested a similar beatdown-style Elf deck a while ago for Standard, and I always found Pelt Collector to be a bit of an underperformer, as it's not going to get past 2 power in the early game unless you have a Steel Leaf Champion, so if you're looking for things to remove I would probably start there.
