Hahaha raspberryfish25 now you mention it, it does sound funny :-). If answers are needed in your meta these are definitely good choices, the Golgari colors have lots of answers to play in the form of targeted and mass removal. Abrupt Decay could also be included. Eyeblight Massacre could also get rid of tokens, without harming your own board state. Lys Alana Scarblade in combination with untap abilities could also perform well to get rid of pesky creatures. You can always recur the discarded creatures with several black cards out there, though not really my style of play. Cover of Darkness is sitting in my binder, trying it out, great evasive tech. Genesis Wave , now that is a digger I do like, definitely agree with you on that one.

As for the cards you are willing to try, they are indeed very strong, but strong comes with a price tag, if budget isn't an issue definitely worth upgrading.

Chord of Calling budget one-time use Zenith, Crashing Drawbridge cheaper crossroads, although usable the next turn, but only haste on your side of the board. Fauna Shaman is already the budget version of Survival of the Fittest , but Evolutionary Leap is the cheapest closest card with more or less the same effect. Song of the Dryads combo sounds like a lot of fun indeed. With enough counters on Champion of Lambholt you can achieve the same for the price of a bag of crisps. Seeker of Skybreak is a great "untapper", maybe you like Quirion Ranger and Scryb Ranger too.

Time Spiral remastered comes with a few nice reprints like Slaughter Pact , Summoner's Pact , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Damnation . Still on the steep side, price-wise, but way cheaper than the currently printed versions.

FounderX OMG you just made my day with the "Pricy but spicy" comment. I am totally using that going forward. =)

Glad to see you have already looked at some of those recommendations. I play in a competive meta so in my version of Lathril, Elfball! copy, I needed to add more instant speed targeted removal so I added Assassin's Trophy , Golgari Charm , Nature's Claim , and Beast Within , which you are already running. I found this really helped and saved my butt several times when your opponent has death on board. I have to admit Golgari Charm has been a really strong upgrade mainly for the regenerate ability, but the other two modes are still really strong. I was able to decimate a Krenko, Mob Boss deck thanks to the -1/-1 mode.

Two other cards that have worked extremely well in my deck has been Cover of Darkness and Genesis Wave . Most games Cover of Darkness will make all your creatures unblockable to one or more players which can quickly end games.

For Genesis Wave we are already making silly amounts of mana with our mana dorks so most games I am casting Genesis Wave for 15+ which means 5 to 8 elves along with a hand full of lands/enchantments/artifacts. The only problem I have with Genesis Wave is the deck's lack of haste because, as soon as I cast it I instantly become the prime target for all the other players. However, if I manage to untap with all the perments that Genesis Wave puts in play I typically win the following turn. High risk / high reward right?

A few cards I have thought about trying are, Green Sun's Zenith , Concordant Crossroads , Song of the Dryads , Fauna Shaman , and Seeker of Skybreak . Fun fact, if you give Song of the Dryads to your opponent and have Elvish Champion out all of your elves become unblockable to that player. What are your thoughts on these cards?

Thanks

Great deck. 2 questions.

1) Is there a reason that you are playing snow lands, in particular the tapped snow dual? 2) Have you tried the cards Fallen Ideal or Seeker of Skybreak ?

DarkMagician on Selvala, heart of the wilds

Storm is a deck archetype where the idea is to cast a ton of spells in a single turn in order to win that turn. Traditional storm decks are blue and red and use cards that provide excess mana such as Rite of Flame and cantrips like Ponder to dig through their decks to find their win condition which is usually either Grape Shot or Empty the Warrens . In the case of Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (usually called Bro Storm) the idea is to play out the entire deck with a huge Genesis Wave or by turning your creatures into cantrips with cards like Soul of the Harvest and Glimpse of Nature along side big mana generators and large draw spells like Regal Force or Return of the Wildspeaker then attacking for lethal.

That is how Phyrexian Dreadnought works with Selvala but can easily generate much more mana than that with untappers such as Seeker of Skybreak and Quirion Ranger in play.

It requires seven mana but that is the combo i was speaking of. There was another one but my mind is fried right now from lack of sleep.

Very nice deck, gave me a few ideas for my own Marwyn deck!

I do like the idea of Berserk, it's a very flexible card, and even more so in this deck. I would like to suggest Seeker of Skybreak. It's not flashy but it triggers Marwyn for a counter and can help her ramp extra or ramp and attack with her the same turn.
