If you need anymore protection options Steely Resolve, Saryth, the Viper's Fang, Privileged Position, Slippery Bogbonder or Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel as some tribe friendly protection options.

As an amusing bonus Steely Resolve can be used to disable most voltron commanders by choosing their commanders creature type and giving it shroud, if it targets its a no go removing most equip or enchantment options.

Saryth, the Viper's Fang has some nasty potential to turn blocks deadly by tapping your blocker or prevent spot removal on your other creatures.

Slippery Bogbonder has some nasty potential with your commander to make him untargetable to the enemy and massively pump him up for a very ugly surprise depending on the number of +1/+1 counters you have.

Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel is an interesting utility creature able to act as a mana dump later game, triggering your commander and etbs one or more times a turn if hes not on protection duty.

faustodemambo on The Ur-Dragon, quest for 100%

Sorry for the late response, I don't have a lot of time on my hands anymore sadly

1 Embercleave its player removal with my commander out. I don't have to flash it out as I can put it on the battlefield with The Ur-Dragon's ability so its harder to counter. If I see that people are out of mana I can use the flash part but its not needed all the time

2 I don't think Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is good enough as I'm not playing cards that can tutor it. As soon as all 5 colours are printed I'm changing my rampcards to be able to tutor lands

3 Steely Resolve has worked great for me as haste is quite important and it also protects some of my more important cards

4 Wasitora, Nekoru Queen was a card that I wanted to cut for some time but I didn't know what I could replace it with. For now I have added Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient but he might get cut for Moonveil Regent

5 Conqueror's Flail will make this list for Grand Abolisher, I just want to get grand abolisher out vs my friends Kozilek, the Great Distortion deck once. As soon as that happend I will change em

6 Dragon's Hoard is 1 mana to much for me. I have tried to keep all my ramp artifacts at 0-2 mana. The Great Henge doesn't follow that rule but that card can be 2 mana and is just to good not to have

Pikobyte on Xyris, the Writhing Storm

Theres quite a bit you can do here. Better wheels obviously but they’re quite pricey. You also should consider cards like Battle Hymn , Xenagos, the Reveler or Phyrexian Altar . They really help you to make some explosive turns. Maybe most important is good protection, especially since you’re playing quite a bit grouphug stuff. Without your commander on the field a Xyris deck doesn’t do very much. Counterspells are nice in theory but they don’t work very well with wheels since you can’t keep them until you need them. Steely Resolve , Guardian Augmenter and Spellskite work better here since you can just cast them right away and keep wheeling. Spellskite also protects artifacts and even enchantments.

In terms of power level things get pricey fast. My version of Xyris is high powered but comes with a much bigger pricetag. Feel free to take a look at my primer, maybe you find some new toys there.

Caran_Lyg: Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton , I might add. IF I owned a Steely Resolve it would go into my dinosaur deck. I feel most people won't target my squirrels as often unless it's a board wipe. Coat of Arms is nice, but it helps everyone. So it's a no go. Caller of the Hunt is also a maybe. She could get big, and if I give her trample she would be even better. So she's a maybe.

Hekebolas Either run some of the cheaper dragons that give some etb value, have more permanents that provide protection for your creatures like Monastery Siege or Steely Resolve or have you deck be way more focused on recursion to rebuy/bring back Dragons from your graveyard.

kandjar on Lathril Elf Tribal

tribal-kai - Indeed, the deck has a lot of targeting spells/abilities, I did mention that it would required a more serious refocus in order to include Steely Resolve . I did build mine with that in mine as I really like this card. I just wanted to mention just in case it you missed the card. Technically, there's also Asceticism , except it's a 5 CMC cards.

Fallen Ideal is OK; but it suffers the same downside as any aura as it could be a 2 for 1 if your opponent kills your Elf in response for you playing the card. Demonic Embrace is more resilient, but it's still be 2 for 1 (if you count the discarded card to get it back); and, I don't know about you but when I play Lathril I'm often looking into ways to get more cards in my hand as the deck tends to want you to dump it out. Any discard effect is very costly. This is why I love Eldrazi Monument over those 2; not only it protects all your Elves, it's also an anthem for your entire army and give them flying/invasion.

Since you like auras; I was wondering if you also considered Rancor as it's very mana efficient.
