legendofa on Salty Commanders!

My main thought on my Nath of the Gilt-Leaf deck is that it didn't capture the Sadistic Hypnotist combo. The power level, salt, and threats look right, and it captures Chain of Smog + Professor Onyx and Maralen of the Mornsong + Opposition Agent. It has a preference for hard locks and wincon combos. This isn't really wrong, especially when measuring salt levels, but it's something I noted.

The analysis of my Dromar and Xantcha lists look pretty much perfect. Good work!

KBK7101 on Lathril, blade of the elves

I'd probably cut Deadbridge Chant. I don't think there is enough graveyard stuff going on to warrant it in this deck. You could also probably stand to lose a few creatures. Maybe some of the lower impact ones like Thornbow Archer and Nath of the Gilt-Leaf?

Probably the most obvious addition would be Parallel Lives but that card is a pretty expensive these days. Chatterfang, Squirrel General can do a good enough impression if you want that kind of effect for a lot less money.

Crippling Fear is a non-elf board wipe. Won't kill everything, but might help clear the way for Lathril to connect.

Species Specialist, while not an elf, can name elves as the creature type for it's death trigger effect so you can draw when one dies.

Sorry, some last minute thoughts:

Surrak Dragonclaw or Stonehoof Chieftain are great replacements for Khenra Charioteer.

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf is a good replacement for that Blaring Recruiter if you still haven't replaced it.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs is better for a good defense. With all the creatures already giving haste (your commander being one of them), Rushblade Commander can be swapped.

Jazal Goldmane will give HUGE attacks and could replace Kargan Warleader is you're willing to dump mana on combat.

I would add Drumhunter due to it's card draw. Replace Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip if you can.

Some notable mentions include: Boldwyr Intimidator, Arashin Foremost, Champion of Rhonas, Butcher of Malakir, Dragonscale General, and Flamerush Rider.

Guerric on Lathril's Relentless Elves

Hi ionlyplayelves! I added some response to some cards you had questions about on the other thread, but if you are looking for cuts in order to add stuff, Champion of Lambholt doesn't really have much synergy with elves and Nath of the Gilt-Leaf really only is good if you have a lot of synergy with discard effects, so I'd consider dropping him. I might also consider replacing Dig Up with Time of Need. This isn't an absolute as the former can get any card, but I've generally found that the rule with tutors is that they are best when cmc 3 or less. Since you have lots of mana here its probably fine, end it can find your lands and not just key legends, but its just a thought.

When you say competitive, the only decks I'm aware of offhand are Nath of the Gilt-Leaf (not really an elf deck), Marwyn Elfball, and Selvala Brostorm. Get your playgroup into proxies and you'll be cooking with gas.

legendofa on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List] Part 1

1 year ago

I'm curious about Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. I don't have nearly enough cEDH experience to question the Competitive placement, but I'd like to know what got him there. I assume he went up through the ranks from the power of a Stax list, but is limited by the presence of better/more versatile commanders that are +. Is that correct?

Hey, well done with your casual version of Lathril.

Consider one drop mana Elves especially Elves of Deep Shadow ? Shadow can make black mana to cast Lathril. These Elves give a big advantage for the tribe with ramp and when they aren't being used for ramp use them to get counters faster on Quest, with Lathril's tap ability or just have more Elves for Priest/Archduid, etc.

Other sources of ramp could be cut for these such as Cultivate , Harvest Season other cards Steel Leaf Champion , Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Endless Atlas .

Llanowar Wastes , Unclaimed Territory , Necroblossom Snarl , Temple of Malady , Tainted Wood are some budget land upgrades. These could replace Swamps, Shimmerdrift Vale , Jungle Hollow and The World Tree . Undergrowth Stadium , Overgrown Tomb , Twilight Mire , Gilt-Leaf Palace , Woodland Cemetery and Wirewood Lodge are some expensive price land upgrades.

Good luck with your deck.
