The most and best wheel cards are in and , so you need at least one of those colors, and preferably both. Xyris, the Writhing Storm and

Breaking it down, wheeling has four key parts: you discard, you draw, opponents discard, and opponents draw. This is a very simple, slightly curated list of commander options that care about at least one of these.

"Whenever you draw"

"Whenever you discard"

"Whenever an opponent draws"

"Whenever an opponent discards"

Some side options are reanimator, since you're going to be filling graveyards fast, and spellslinger, since most of the straightforward options are instants and sorceries.

wallisface Sorry for the late reply but these days have been quite busy eheh. Maybe i've explained my self badly: by aggro I meant finishing the opponent with creatures attacking his Total Life but the strategy of the deck Is mainly disrupting the opponent gameplan via discard spells . Its a slow gameplan revolving around dorks , only ways to pump them Is using [elvish archdruid] as a lord and/or Tyvar the Bellicose and Tyvar Kell +1 . Or again with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf continuing the discard Plan while creating 1/1 tokens. And the ability to potentially turn 1/1s into deathtouch attackers via Tyvar the Bellicose and Gnarlroot Trapper seemed to me as a good idea. Again , i've imagined this deck as a slow "control discard " which finish the game via aggro .

msimcoe First of all i'd like to thank you for the detailed comment . For the mana base : i was thinking from the start about the fetch+shock lands modern Staples but i tried to avoid them because of the Life loss: with all the dorks that let me add mana while losing Life i thought It was a bit risky to try the Classic fetch + shock and i find the mana fix in this deck to be quite easily manageable . I tried Woodland Cemetery too but i found that sometimes It came tapped early in the game . [Fury] and dork removal Is the reason im playing target discard , to enable the dorks plays discarding their removal spells. But you're definitely right about the pure discard being Better later in the game , especially with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. I've imagined this list to be a slower Elf ramp: "defending" the early plays by controlling the opponent hand i think its crucial for the strategy. But still , to find the perfect balance between the early targeted discard and the generic discard its something do be done here. I'll definitely try funeral charm by removing 2 target discard cards. I find Devoted Druid to be quite a nice addiction here because It has good sinergies with Tyvar the Bellicose and the +1 Tyvar Kell : to turn the mana dorks into Little beaters throught those cards was one of the approach i took while Building the deck. Do you think that this strategy Is lackluster ( keep in mind the slower-controllish way of this build) ? Harmonize feels good when It hits but you're right , im looking for some other draw engine to keep the flow going and i Will try Beast Whisperer for sure. What do you think about Harald Unites the Elves ? Maybe its Just me loving this card but i think It deserves a Place somewhere ahah.

PS. This Go Blank Will definitely find a Place in the sideboard . Yes , your input has been very helpful.

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!

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.

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.
