So I'll be honest and say that I'm a total outsider to the food deck archetype, so I'm no expert. I'll make some suggestions of cards that I like and that excite me.

Kami of Whispered Hopes seems like a bomb and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest could turn your food into mox emeralds. Yotian Dissident Gyre Sage Incubation Druid Shalai and Hallar Three Visits

A lot of LOTR stuff would work too Peregrin Took The Shire Samwise Gamgee Sam, Loyal Attendant

I hate to suggest cuts, so I'll leave that up to you. I will say that you seem to be trying to do a lot of things, maybe think about cutting out some of the sub themes, and try to work on the top end of your curve because it's still quite high

Some thoughts:

  • both Thriving Grove and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest are not modern legal.

  • ideally most of your cards should be playsets (4-ofs). By running soo many cards as 1-ofs and 2-ofs, your deck is going to be super inconsistent and overall much weaker. A good deckbuilding tip for newer players is to pick 9 cards, and run playsets of each of those (making 36 cards) alongside 24 lands (for a 60 card deck).

  • Your mana curve is also very high. Generally decks can’t justify running more than 4 cards costing 4 mana, and run nothing above this cost. Even decks very heavy on ramp effects (a LOT more than what this deck is currently running) generally can’t justify having more than 6-8 cards costing 4-or-more mana (and generally don’t go above 6-7 mana).

  • the above mentioned issue is going to be made a lot worse due to you having nothing to do on turn 1, meaning that you’re always starting a full turn behind your opponent - a really dangerous place to be.

FormOverFunction Too true : ) Not only are there way more commanders, but ones that have ultra-specific abilities so there is that wider range of what's possible, but at the same time, almost more limited ways to play an individual commander. Something like Jaheira, Friend of the Forest (ha, I am replaying BG2 so this is what comes to mind) but Jaheria is so specific as a commander that your build is stuck between either being the same as every other Jaheria deck, or being something that's completely better suited for another commander.

But the more I think about it, I'm realizing that my post might be way off too. When I'm building decks I always start with a commander I want to use and go from there, so my process takes the meta less into account than the want to figure out the puzzle that is a commander I like.

Things I'd consider more staples are like

Llanowar Elves


Tragic Slip

Lightning Bolt

Arcane Signet

Grand Abolisher


Guardian of Faith

Mind Stone

and some of the MDFC cards

Not because every deck needs to run them, but because every time you draw them you will absolutely use them that game.

Fun Deck, but i feel like you need more things to Protect Lathril, like Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. Now with the latest set, Elfballs can snag Oracle of Mul Daya easier too! Another card that wasn't looked at too often that came out of Baldur's gate was Jaheira, Friend of the Forest which will turn all your elf tokens made from lathril into mana dorks :) hope some of these help, i've been tinkering with an elfball myself off the original lathril precon, but got a little more expensive.

Have you considered adding the new background, Cloakwood Hermit? Jaheira, Friend of the Forest could be useful as well.

You might like these: Carnival of Souls, Earthcraft, Jaheira, Friend of the Forest, Illusionist's Bracers, Black Market, Life and Limb, Awakening, Druids' Repository, Zulaport Cutthroat, Neko-Te, Phyrexian Altar, Sprout Swarm, Saproling Symbiosis, Spontaneous Generation

Personally I would cut these: Golgari Locket, Druidic Satchel, Sporeweb Weaver, Necrogenesis, Saproling Migration, Verdant Force, Butcher of Malakir, Verdant Embrace, Feed the Serpent, Status / Statue, Elvish Farmer
