Selvala, Heart of the Wilds Discussion

I have a couple suggestions. If you're looking for one big turn of storming Aeve I'd consider Parallel Lives , Primal Vigor , Horizon Stone , and Doubling Cube . You might also consider going for big mana with Incubation Druid and Castle Garenbrig . Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can go infinite with a Temur Sabertooth if she has haste, but without it it's just value to be able to bounce your original copy of your commander and recast it on a later turn and to get more mana and tons of draws as Selvala will see the steady progression of each Aeve coming in slightly bigger than the one before. You may also consider Realmwalker and Maskwood Nexus for additional tribal value.

Thanks for the upvotes! I love your decks as well as their presentations. Idk if you need help with mana fixing, but I find Faeburrow Elder and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds work wonders. And if you want more Temur Ascendancy style draw, Garruk's Uprising has very similar utility. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner too.

Also, it's been awhile since I updated deck pages; can you remind me how to set an image to the background? I have the code to make boxes transparent, but the code I was using before to set background images doesn't seem to work anymore.

Maybe I'm biased, but I feel like it's a crime to not run the Fate Reforged dragons at least. Dromoka, the Eternal and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury hit almost as hard as Atarka, World Render , and Idk, I just love the "whenever a dragon you control attacks" clause because most of those effects slot so well into dragon tribal.

For ramp, Faeburrow Elder and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds goes a long way. Goldspan Dragon too. Not that this list needs more ramp, but I really like these options personally.

Just out of curiosity, why aren't you running a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds ?

Hey, nice casual version of Ur-Dragon.

Your deck doesn't have an official Commander and Ur-Dragon is in the 99 main deck. In the deck editor at the end of The Ur-Dragon text add the CMDR tag.

The Ur-Dragon *F* *CMDR*

This will make Ur-Dragon the Commander, putting it in it's own Commander category and displaying an image of it's card.

Some steps you could take to increase the power level of your deck:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

If you want a ridiculous board state I recommend Selvala, Heart of the Wilds . She dumps your entire deck onto the battlefield with relative ease.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds would be great in your deck.

@Tarlam Great question. I think a dedicated elf package would be naturally at odds with this deck's strategy. Tribal decks really want to be running a critical mass of synergistic creatures - usually 25-30, depending on the tribe. That chews through a lot of deck slots. A Mayael deck has a similar need for large creatures. Unfortunately, there's just not a lot of overlap between those two themes. There are currently 11 elves with 5+ power in Naya colors, and they're all pretty bad. When you try to split the difference, you just end up with a weak version of both strategies.

That said, I think there are some light tribal components that you could reliably tap into. There are lots of good mana dork elves, so it might not be crazy to run something like Wirewood Lodge . Paired with elves that can tap for more than one mana ( Bloom Tender and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds come to mind) you have the makings of a decent mana engine. Then there's stuff like Wirewood Symbiote - perhaps a cheap way to protect Mayael? I think there's probably a way to make an elf sub-theme play well, but I'd be hesitant to include any cards that need more than 1-2 elves on the field to work well.
