Elves work really well with warriors, with about half of the tribe being warriors themselves.

Key cards being Bramblewood Paragon , Harald, King of Skemfar , Dwynen's Elite , Elvish Warmaster , Imperious Perfect , Narnam Renegade , and Prowess of the Fair .

Hi multimedia, yeah Fallen Ideal is so good in our decks, tons of value! Blackblade Reforged has shown to be nice to have, but not a needed staple. It buffs Lathril nicely for early game tokens. After a midgame board wipe, the lands are always there to buff her immediately upon return, but it does cost 9 mana to set up again, and besides that, everyone sees it coming, so it is also a potential target to be removed fairly quickly. Prowess of the Fair is not the best indeed, never seen it go off in the first place, and it doesn't yield that much value, a good cut for Beastmaster Ascension . My friend has a Champion of Lambholt in his Ghave deck and we had a hard time against him :-), definitely considering her in the 99. I run Priest of Forgotten Gods in my Ayara deck, great card indeed. For your counter theme, you might want to try Ivy Lane Denizen , a go tall instead of a go wide card, but still, the number of counters adds up fairly well and doesn't break the bank.

Hey, nice new title graphic in the description :)

I'm using the Fallen Ideal tech and wow I like it with Lathril especially with Elderfang, Poison-Tip, Miara, and Skullclamp. I recently cut Prowess of the Fair for Beastmaster Ascension . I don't like that Prowess doesn't trigger when Elf tokens die. I like that Ascension can be activated the turn you play it since getting six Elf tokens with Lathril is not difficult. Just attack with them + Lathril and boom Ascension is activated. How has Blackblade Reforged been? It seems like it would be underwhelming because it relies on you having a lot of lands which with Elves you don't really want or have.

Some tech I've added is Champion of Lambholt to make Lathril and all Elves unblockable. Helps that she grows when tokens are created. Priest of Forgotten Gods which has been good value as another use for Elf tokens and effects that can untap my creatures.

Hey, I'm impressed, well done building your deck on a budget with like 90% cards from Commander Legends.

Commander Legends was an amazing set for Elves especially Miara. Unfortunately, to make any real impact from upgrades you're going to want to add more cards from other sets, but most cards you add could be $1 or less each and still make a huge impact.

An advantage of Elves as a tribe is ramp, more specifically one drop mana Elves and Elves who can tap to make a lot of mana. No other tribe has as many one drop mana creatures or creatures who can make a ton of mana. By adding more mana Elves you can reduce the amount of lands while increasing the amount of Elves. More ramp from Elves is wanted by both your Commanders to cast Nadier quicker and to pay more into X with Numa. Both of your Commanders don't do much without lots of ramp.

Archdruid is the budget Elf who defines the tribe since he's an anthem for Elves and can make as much green mana as Elves you control. Marwyn and Joiner are good with Numa, Joraga Chieftain since they want counters put on them, they care about how much power they have. Marwyn is also good with Elf tokens since each token that's created puts a counter on her. Guidance has excellent interaction with Arbor Elf if you enchant a Forest or Woodland Chasm .

Other mana rocks are more sources of ramp. Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are two budget staple cards in Commander. Golgari Signet is another two drop ramp source upgrade.


These cards would expand on the Elf token theme and Prowess is unique since it's an Elf that's not a creature. Expanding on the token strategy makes Nadier better. Warmaster is another mana sink to pump and give Elves deathtouch. Elderfang doesn't create tokens like the other cards, but it has good interaction with them. Letting you swing with your Elves and opponents have to make difficult decisions about what to do.

I offer more advice including cuts to make. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Not a big thing and maybe you already know it but Prowess of the Fair can be tapped by Lathril, Blade of the Elves :)

Might require more outlets but how do you feel about Quest for Renewal and/or Seedborn Muse?

So I was surprised to see Vizier of Remedies and not Melira, Sylvok Outcast . In that same vein, I am not sure about the -1/-1 counter synergies ( Flourishing Defenses ), especially if you double down on preventing -1/-1 counters like my last sentence. I think I would rather see Inspiring Call in that slot, or at least in the deck somewhere. I see 28 non-token creatures in the deck 29 with Ghave. Perhaps Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit could be a Juniper Order Ranger and Prowess of the Fair could be a Woodfall Primus . Lastly, I see an infinite combo with Devoted Druid , Ghave, Guru of Spores , and Vizier of Remedies and that you have Blood Artist , perhaps you could run Zulaport Cutthroat or Corpse Knight to work with that aspect.

That said I like where you are going with the deck. I am always a giant proponent of removal and of course feel there could be more, but I have made enough suggestions for now.

Elves loses a lot of explosiveness without the 1 cmc mana dorks; you really need to play them. Not only do they let you cast your bigger threats earlier, but they also let you flood the board with creatures faster, which works well with your payoffs ( Shaman of the Pack , Poison-Tip Archer , and Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen benefit from large boards, Lys Alana Huntmaster benefits from having lots of mana to cast creatures).

Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , and Elves of Deep Shadow (to help out the black splash) are all inexpensive. I'd cut a mixture of Eyeblight's Ending , Prowess of the Fair , and Gilt-Leaf Ambush to make room for at least 10 of those cards. You can even cut 2 or 3 lands if you have 12 or so mana dorks--competitive Elves decks play 18 lands and still make enough mana to cast their entire hand by turn 3. I'd also recommend you play Elvish Visionary ; like Silvergill Adept in Merfolk, it's one of the cards that keeps the fuel pumping and is just really good in general.
