Llanowar Tribe Discussion

With a mana ramp core built around elves, I'm a fan of Joraga Treespeaker . Its production at 3 mana is somewhere between Llanowar Visionary and Llanowar Tribe , but if you can invest in it until level 5, all of your elves get an upgrade. Alternatively, if you prefer focusing on your lands, Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl and Voyaging Satyr + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are quite strong pairs.

I have on the board Asceticism and a Llanowar Tribe . My opponent has Phyrexian Obliterator on board and during his turn he casts Pit Fight onto phyrexian Obliterator and wants to force it to fight my Llanowar Tribe. Since I have Asceticism on board and it states "Creatures I control can't be the targets of spells or abilities your opponents control." Pit fight states target creature you control fights another target creature. But my creatures can't be target due to Asceticism, correct or not?

Surprised not to see Ashnod's Altar to help with your token generation blinkers.
Also Great Oak Guardian and Llanowar Tribe go inf with your commander. Shared Summons is playable.
Also Fiend Hunter sounds good, i think if you stack the triggers right with multiple blinks you can exile opponents creatures permanently.
Cheers and have fun!!

I agree with TheVectornaut about a Defenders or Toughness Matters hub. WotC seems to like printing
Arcades, the Strategist
, so Defenders is a good choice (though I wouldn’t call it Walls because not all defenders are walls). But I’ve also seen a lot of Toughness Matters with
Doran, the Siege Tower
Huatli, the Sun's Heart
I’m here to throw out Chroma/Devotion. Even before Theros Beyond Death, there’s been a lot of modern decks using Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Green likes to print cards like Khalni Hydra , Primalcrux , and Llanowar Tribe , but there’s plenty of devotion with other colors, too.
Anyway, thanks for reading!

Llanowar Tribe is great ramp, i might consider it over fertilid.
Also how has dragon throne of tarkir been in playtesting? I always wanted to like that card but 9 mana investment for its first activation effect is just soo steep! Seems an 'if youre winning, win more' kind of card.

Hey, you have some amazing cards here Cradle, Hollow and Shepherd, but then there's all the creature removal spells, Sundail and Majesty, etc. which are subpar. Spells such as Aggressive Instinct don't interact with a Planeswalker Commander and most Elves have low power which is not what you want when you want a creature with high power for removal. Lots of cards that rely on a creature you control to have high power are not what you want with Elves.
My suggestions will be for Elf upgrades and some additional mana sinks to better use the ramp that Elves and Freyalise can make. It's already been suggested, but max out on all the one drop mana Elves as these are unique to Elves and a big reason to want to play the tribe.
- Elvish Mystic --> Aggressive Instinct
- Fyndhorn Elves --> Rabid Bite
- Heritage Druid --> Ram Through
- Boreal Druid --> Clear Shot
- Marwyn, the Nurturer --> Fyndhorn Elder
- Elvish Harbinger --> Drove of Elves
- Numa, Joraga Chieftain --> Elf Replica
- Quirion Ranger --> Ezuri's Archers
- Wirewood Symbiote --> Skyshroud Ranger
- Wirewood Herald --> Naturalize
- Eternal Witness --> Wren's Run Vanquisher
- Llanowar Tribe --> Greenweaver Druid
- Reclamation Sage --> Elvish Scrapper
Harbinger is an Elf tutor. Numa is a mana sink. Marwyn grows when you create a mana Elf with Freyalise. Ranger + Symbiote lets you bounce Ranger + Forest to untap an Elf such as Archdruid to make a lot of green mana. Ezuri and Shepherd are your best mana sinks, but consider others?
- Green Sun's Zenith --> Colossal Majesty
- Leyline of Abundance --> Door of Destinies
- Chord of Calling --> Seer's Sundial
- Craterhoof Behemoth --> Soul's Majesty
Zenith and Chord are tutors to use ramp with that can get Ezuri or Craterhoof or any other creature putting it onto the battlefield.
Some other cards to consider cutting for better options:
- Broken Bond
- Gleeful Sabotage
- Might of the Masses
- Garruk's Uprising
- Desert Twister
Good luck with your deck.

I personally recommend Marwyn, the Nurturer as the commander for Elves due to the fact it's a worse Archdruid in the command zone. Freyalise is definitely a bomb of epic proportions, but at 5 cmc I personally wouldn't use it as the commander.
Llanowar Tribe is also a great spell.
That's a great starting point. There are some more things I'd recommend, but I'll have to come back later.
