Well board wipes are gonna work great. Also free value will work great. So for board wipes as many as you can get and even dumb ones like Last One Standing just so you can stay low curve. And free value. Cards like Sunbird's Invocation, Lurking Predators, and Mind's Dilation. Stick to this route and you'll be fine

@LordTsukune there are a few black elves; like Gilt-Leaf Winnower, Hunter of Eyeblights, Lys Alana Scarblade, Maralen of the Mornsong, Ayara, First of Locthwain, Blightsoil Druid, etc. I guess I just didn't think they were worth it. I'll take your opinion on the matter tho

Sunbird's Invocation and Stolen Strategy are good generic red gas. They can go in most any red deck, for sure. If you look at my land base you can see that I'm relying heavily on green since that's elves' most dominant color, but I'm splashing all other colors for support. If I did add them, what would you suggest to come out?

I do actually have Fist of Suns in here, so I'll do some updating this morning to match my irl list.

Thanks for the comment! I upvoted some of your decks in return! Don't forget to upvote here as well! Cheers

Not entirely relevant to the point you're making, but if you like aggro for EDH, build Neheb, the Eternal. He actively scales to get stronger against more opponents, and can very, very quickly build a terrifying board state, while also having late-game staying power thanks to some of the high-CMC cards (most notably IMO Sunbird's Invocation) that he makes easy to cast. He also makes small amounts of damage pay off huge dividends - casting Purphoros, God of the Forge turn four, then Neheb himself turn five gives you a free six-drop in a four player game. Flame Rift, for example, pays for itself six times over against three opponents.

Sweet brew! I really like the idea of Chandra tribal. Not sure if these suggestions will gel with the deck but they crossed my mind while looking at your list: Sunbird's Invocation to help speed up board state and casting things, Tectonic Instability and Price of Glory for some additional land hate, and any of the double-damagers Gratuitous Violence, Dictate of the Twin Gods, or Furnace of Rath.

How do you find the deck to play against other decks?

This deck would be so tough to build. Would a card like Sunbird's Invocation be of any use? It's effect counts as casting the spell, getting another trigger from Mishra?

Otherwise, if you need enchantments, more tutors would be good to add consistency. Diabolic Intent, Diabolic Tutor, and Final Parting could be of use.

Sorry I can't really come up with much more to offer with such a tricky build.
