This seems like a cool deck, I might try something like this myself. Nullmage Shepherd I think would be a nice removal card for this.

Thanks BPWyndon for your suggestions! Skyshroud Poacher looks really cool and I didn't even know him! For the other cards I have to test the deck with my group first (until now we have never played after I put this deck together, due to the covid-19 situation). I need to figure out if I need more single target removals (such as: Glissa Sunseeker and Nullmage Shepherd ) and more life-gaining cards (such as: Nissa Revane and Wellwisher )

Glissa Sunseeker and Nullmage Shepherd were two of the most important cards in my elf decks. I also had a lot of fun with Skyshroud Poacher . Nissa Revane and/or Wellwisher could really boost your life total and help you use that Bolas's Citadel .

One of the main issues I always ran into with playing elves, was getting my board wiped constantly. Elves have a pretty hard time recovering from that if you don't have some way of getting them back out of the graveyard.

I LOVE Nullmage Shepherd but you have to cut something. Anything that you think "is a good blocker" if thats all it does. Add Jagged-Scar Archers to block and kill things. Try getting rid of everything thats not an Elf AND gives tokens, ramp or destroys something. Maybe add Unstoppable Ash ? Cut more than you need then figure out what to put back.

Add in some two CMCs, maybe a one drop dork. Should be at 15 or lower 4 drops, not many you play over your cmdr.

Hi, Nice deck! I would give Nullmage Shepherd a try, it did wonders for me because it is repeatable with untappers, it is not fun to play against cards like Ghostly Prison , Propaganda , etc. with your Elf army if Lathril isn't there to tap them.

Thanks multimedia! Everything you're saying makes sense about Immaculate Magistrate , Timberwatch Elf , Birchlore Rangers and Nullmage Shepherd , I just struggled to find room in the deck to keep them. Their effects all feel a bit conditional based on having a lot of elves on the field, at which point I'm already doing well and ready to swing in for big beats so they almost feel like win-more cards. I'm going to keep them in mind though, if I can find things that aren't performing as well that I want to take out.

Smart thinking on your tutor and Elves of Deep Shadow suggestions. Adding them!

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon.

Lathril + Immaculate Magistrate + Copperhorn Scout combo scales to make Lathril bigger each turn you attack which can create more Elves each time and it lets you use Lathril's tap ability with all the Elves she just created after combat. Timberwatch Elf can replace Magi, but the pump goes away at end of turn. Marwyn, the Nurturer can make a lot of green mana with Magi/Timberwatch + Scout to use with a mana sink such as Ezuri. Scout's ability to untap all other creatures you control whether they attacked or not is powerful with big mana producers and a mana sink. Magi + Joraga Warcaller is another good interaction to make all Elves huge.

Birchlore Rangers has impressed me because of his interaction with Elf tokens. Able to tap pairs of them to make mana the turn they're created which is nice to cast instant speed spells or pay activations such as Ezuri's regenerate and Miara's draw when you're tapped out. It's also helpful that Elves can make green or black mana. Nullmage Shepherd has also impressed for some of the same reasons. These tapping effects along with other Elves who tap such as Lathril and Archdruid, etc. become even better with a repeatable way to untap all Elves on each opponent's turn such as Seedborn Muse and Quest for Renewal .

Instant creature tutors are helpful especially Chord of Calling with Elf tokens, but also Shared Summons which can put two Elves into your hand. Elves of Deep Shadow is in my opinion the best one drop mana Elf with Lathril because he's reliable ramp to cast her without needing a black source from a land.
