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.

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.

kandjar - Yeah I had Steely Resolve in there but it got cut due to my targeting spells.

I've since replaced Blackblade Reforged with the previously suggested Fallen Ideal and it's an excellent include. I'm very happy with that one.

I might try Demonic Embrace too, although I don't like the idea of discarding cards. I don't suppose I'd do that too often though,

Eldrazi Monument is a good one to consider as the deck is really fragile to board wipes. I'll have a look over the deck list and see what to cut for it.

I'm also not super keen on Blackblade Reforged ; you already have: Timberwatch Elf and Wirewood Pride for the "go-tall" aspect of the deck. I would strongly consider replacing it with Eldrazi Monument ; it beefs, gives invasion to all your elves; and most importantly gives them destructive-board-wipe protection.

I also really like: Steely Resolve , it's fantastic when facing a Maze of Ith ; however, including it may require revisiting your targeting spells/abilities, as you they won't work if Steely Resolve is on the field.
