Harald, King of Skemfar Discussion

Though I'm curious why you aren't playing some cards, like Skullclamp Serpent's Soul-Jar Pact of the Serpent Harald, King of Skemfar and Sylvan Messenger , I like your list a lot, and it helped me come across some of the weirder cards like Alpha Authority . I just think you should cut Nissa Revane . At least in my playgroup, Wellwisher , being less vulnerable to flyers, is better, and the life-gain isn't that important anyway.

I'll let you know right now, Legacy is not where you want to start. It's got all but the most obscenely overpowered cards in the history of the game. (Those go into Vintage.) Legacy decks are regularly $4,000+.

A decent Elf starting package might include Shaman of the Pack , Elvish Mystic , Harald, King of Skemfar , and Jaspera Sentinel . These cards are cheap, easy to use, and won't get you laughed at. Note that Shaman of the Pack is not Standard-legal, if you decide to go that direction, but it is Pioneer-legal. I'm not really suggesting for any particular format, just putting options in front of you.

If you're willing to spend more money and start looking at serious competitive options, try to find Collected Company .

If you have any questions, or are confused, please ask!

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.

    Hi raspberryfish25 Thanks, I like playing it. Just finished a quick 1-on-1 game versus my brother-in-law's deck (all about stealing cards) and lost to my own elves. As for the mentioned cards, I've looked into all the mentioned cards in early builds, some of them will definitely make the 99 in future upgrades.

    Deathrite Shaman - Meta dependent, but a great card indeed, in my playgroup just a 1 cmc cheaper Scavenging Ooze .

    Skyshroud Poacher - Pricy but spicy, still in the back of my head for a future upgrade.

    Wolverine Riders - Have played this card, but didn't do well, yielded me a few extra tokens, but got removed fairly quickly, might try it again.

    Sylvan Messenger - I'm not the biggest fan of digging a few deep in the hope to fetch a good card, you can whiff easily.

    Lys Alana Huntmaster - Elvish Warmaster does a similar job with the added Ezuri type buff for Elves for 2 cmc less. I'm aware only one token extra is made per turn.

    Elvish Guidance - Is in the deck, done great work so far.

    Harald, King of Skemfar - Like Sylvan messenger, it can whiff so hard, Land, Land, Dork, Artifact, Enchantment. Also, Tyvar Kell has to be in the deck too, to get the most out of it. Abomination of Llanowar would be the better choice in this build.

    Elvish Harbinger - Like the Poacher, very good.

    Sylvan Offering - This can produce an insane amount of Tokens and a big beater Treefolk token with the amount of mana the deck can produce, the only drawback for me is giving my opponent the same amount in return, I will try it out, this and Stoneforge Masterwork might work, but Lathril depended.

    Elvish Clancaller - An early 2 drop Lord in play is always nice, but it doesn't come with extras, like the other lords.

    Elvish Champion - Also on my future upgrade list, the best Lord around for sure.

    I am really liking this deck, but I am noticing a lot of core cards from a typical Elfball style deck are missing. Have you tried any of the following cards in the deck and if so what was your experience: Deathrite Shaman , Skyshroud Poacher , Wolverine Riders , Sylvan Messenger , Lys Alana Huntmaster , Elvish Guidance , Harald, King of Skemfar , Elvish Harbinger , Sylvan Offering , Elvish Clancaller , and Elvish Champion ?

    Elves work really well with warriors, with about half of the tribe being warriors themselves.

    Key cards being Bramblewood Paragon , Harald, King of Skemfar , Dwynen's Elite , Elvish Warmaster , Imperious Perfect , Narnam Renegade , and Prowess of the Fair .
