Nylea's Presence Discussion
3 weeks ago
Depending on your budget, there are a few expensive cards that would make the deck a lot better; namely Cavern , Palace , the other 3 Companies (that is arguably the best card in the deck), that's all I can think of off the top of my head in terms of expensive cards.
You'll also want to complete some playsets to make the deck more consistent, creatures like Heritage Druid , Dwynen's Elite and Elvish Clancaller are (in my considerable experience with Elves) definite 4-ofs. Heritage Druid enables your most busted starts, Dwynen's Elite helps a lot in the grindy matchups, almost always being a 2-for-1, and Elvish Clancaller helps our little green men to stand up to the big scary creatures in modern.
Scavenging Ooze is an honorary elf, helping a lot against graveyard based decks, as well as the grindier ones that kill our guys.
Your sideboard choices don't seem optimal, there are a few cards that are just bad in modern (looking at you, Nylea's Presence and Overrun ) and some others that are just not ideal for elves ( Grafdigger's Cage non-bo with Company , for example).
Things like Beast Whisperer haven't impressed me, as it's only really useful when you're ahead and have cards in hand, once you've had your hand ripped apart or board wiped, you're likely to just be casting a 4 mana 2/3, which is embarrassingly bad by modern's standards. There are a few others that seem odd to me as well.

@Stinkepete I agree that Heroic Intervention is a better choice than Wrap in Vigor ; I just haven't gotten around to getting any of them in my collection; but its a clear/easy upgrade option that ill pick up when i see some copies floating around in the LGS binder/glass cabinet and i got money to burn.
As far as the Elvish Champion + Nylea's Presence combo is concerned its mainly in here just for fun to create some "oops I win" scenarios but isn't anything I ever rely on happening. Nylea's Presence replaces itself to help me draw into more elves/relevant spells in the early game/game 1 which is nice; but ultimately is my go-to sideboard fodder to make room for GY hate or artifact/enchantment removal and such.

try to add more enchant land like those:
Abundant Growth / Consecrate Land / Elvish Guidance / Genju of the Cedars / Genju of the Falls / Genju of the Fields / Imprisoned in the Moon / Market Festival / New Horizons / Nylea's Presence / One with Nature / Sheltered Aerie / Squirrel Nest / Urban Burgeoning / Utopia Sprawl / Weirding Wood
This way, you will be able to untap them with the +2 effect of Estrid.
Also, you should add more card to draw
Then, you should add some recursion spells like
Also, you should add some cards to protect you like
Then, you could add some cards to take permanents from opponents like

Hello fellow Elf brewer! I would like to recommend Bow of Nylea over Immaculate Magistrate . The Bow giving Deathtouch is amazing for clearing away blockers with tokens and otherwise less usefull elves. The added swiss army knife utility is just gravy. Admittedly Magistrate can/will provide a much bigger pump to a creature/ Joraga Warcaller but honestly just 2-3 counters on him is all thats required to make the elf army big enough to get the win...at least in my experience with him. Otherwise a neat combo to consider is Elvish Champion + Nylea's Presence for an unblockable rush... the champion is worth having in the sideboard just to hose anyone running green come to think of it... the last pieces of tech i can think of that can really help you out is Wrap in Vigor / Heroic Intervention for resistance to Supreme Verdict / Anger of the Gods and Nature's Claim / Naturalize to take out Ensnaring Bridge .

You have a couple unique opportunities here.
For the Land condition, use Nylea's Presence on your Darksteel Citadel. It's cheap and its a cantrip as well. That also enables Landwalk abilities if you play it on your opponent, but that's a thought for a different day. If you were to have at least 1 of each basic land in your deck outside of what you need, than you could also play Wild-Field Scarecrow or something simple like Cultivate.
If you really wanted to be a dickhole, use Arcane Adaptation and play token generating spells like Raise the Alarm or Dragon Fodder which basically means pay , make two 2/2 "Scarecrow" tokens (remember the lord effect from the King) and blow up 2 permanents.

a lot of the best plays have Elvish Archdruid. Def should be a 4x.
If possible try to get 4xHeritage Druid its just one of the best elves in modern. I know its a bit more expensive though
Also Steel Leaf Champion is pretty solid at always being a threat.
Sylvan Messenger is a fun card that could refill your hand for the long games. Maybe consider for the side or main up to you.
For a CoColess build looks fun
