mlequesne I know Right!!?? I actually picked up 3 copies of Beck / Call at my LGS Today! Score!! Glimpse of Nature is a bit more spendy and apparently way harder to find. Thanks for checking in and for the upvote!! Cheers!

If you look at my deck (which, consequently, also once ran Coat of Arms way back when), I overcome its loss by including things like Alpha Status , Tribal Unity , and the activation on Ezuri, Renegade Leader as offense.

The thing is, Coat of Arms is from another era. That shouldn't suggest that it's outdated or useless, but in reality anymore you really only need enough damage to finish off your opponent. The idea of "ooo I have 11x of these 13/13 elves in play" is neat and all, but unless they've all got Trample then even that isn't as good as it once was.

That's why I prefer Sylvan Messenger (hey, he's also got innate Trample, so there's that too) and Vanquisher Banner - the test of time has shown that almighty Card Draw for consistency/speed will FAR outweigh any generic +X/+X global bonus nearly every time. If it were me I would leave those Glimpse of Nature in. Those are only missing from my build because I've stopped spending money on the hobby until reality cools off a bit.

Slate of Ancestry you can make your own call on, but regardless of what you do I'd highly recommend at least playtesting it (even with stand-in cards first) a few times with 4x Sylvan Messenger and at least 3 banners. I think between that and Glimpse you've got real potential to be able to just dump it altogether, but without a playtest of my own I'm venturing into speculation territory. What win condition you decide to bring to the table is up to you, but it's safe to say that you can EASILY find one other than Coat of Arms.

Again, good luck! Glad it's at least giving you some things to mull over.

    0/0. The deck was played back in the late 90's, but it was a very different deck back then. I started tinkering with this deck again back around 2018, but never made a serious commitment. When I finally did, COVID hit... and yeah.


    Thanks again for all of your feedback! I'm going to take a serious look at adding in Sylvan Messenger . I'm not sure how I overlooked this card before, but thanks for bringing it up again.

    Vitalize was in this deck in the past (way way back when, before Wirewood Lodge even existed). There might be space for it, so let me mull that one over a bit more.

    Vanquisher's Banner - I'm just so torn on this, ugh! It is obvious why this needs to go into the deck, but I hate the thought of:

      1. Replacing Coat of Arms and losing the +X/+X bonus, that's pretty significant for how this deck goes from "ohh, look at those cute little elves," to "Holy ^#[email protected]*"
      2. Replacing Glimpse of Nature and upping overall the CMC
    That means I'll probably look at it it to replace both Slates of Ancestry and then figuring out one more card to swap out - I've noticed that you have three in your deck and I agree that is the right number.

    As for artifact hate, I decided to totally dump the Naturalizes from the deck, exclusively relying on Reclamation Sage being pulled from the sideboard. I swapped in Green Sun's Zenith but those might be removed after reviewing some of your other suggestions.

It can often be bad manners to put silver bullet cards in the mainboard. Usually, you'd put such cards in the side and swap them in for games 2 and 3. I know a lot of casual playgroups don't play best 2 out of 3 though, so if this player is using that deck a lot and consistently winning off of a single card, they can't really be surprised if you include some way to answer it in the 60. That said, Duress and Languish effects are the kinds of answers that are extremely common in black anyway. I personally wouldn't bat an eye at seeing them here. Underworld Dreams and Fate Unraveler , definitely not so much.

What is the card in question, by the way? That will obviously affect what's an appropriate response. When I played modern elves, it was pretty rare to bother with drawing the deck when you could just dump it with Collected Company and Genesis Wave . But, from playing other green decks over the years, cards like Lifecrafter's Bestiary , The Great Henge , Vanquisher's Banner , Beast Whisperer , Soul of the Harvest , Primordial Sage , Zendikar Resurgent , Glimpse of Nature , and Regal Force are what come to mind. For the creatures, they would be easy enough to deal with given enough Murder s. For the artifacts, things are rough. Black really hates destroying artifacts, so the very weak Phyrexian Tribute was the best option I could find. However, there is always the nuclear option of running Extirpate or Surgical Extraction with discard to essentially lock a single card out of the game. These are very much sideboard cards though, so running them main has a good chance of drawing a negative reaction.

Nice Deck idea. What you need is more card advantage per creature. You could add Glimpse of Nature or Lifecrafter's Bestiary . Some mechanics to bounce your own creatures would be nice too. Like Crystal Shard or Erratic Portal

Idk your budget but Natural Order might be nice to go get Hoof. And Elvish Visionary is good in most elves decks as well as Glimpse of Nature .

I was gonna suggest Allosaurus Shepherd until I looked at the price. Damn, must be so high because of legacy.

I’m new to edh so maybe my suggestions aren’t useful but just some thoughts!
