Yeah, Staff of Domination is bonkers in Elves, and it's not all that pricey. Umbral Mantle can also offer infinite combo potential like Staff. Sword of the Paruns also works, You might try out Helix Pinnacle as an mana payoff, it's got Shroud and that much mana is nothing in Elves. Marwyn, the Nurturer is a good Elf to consider, she can get huge and generate pretty big mana. Elves are lots of fun, I play them in Legacy, where I'm still experimenting. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is a good mana outlet to have in Elves, while Joraga Warcaller is a somewhat worse one that can still win a game (no trample sucks).

Hey there! Awesome brew! Some recs in case you haven't already thought of them:

Cursed Mirror same reason as Mirage Mirror

Hamletback Goliath janky but fun

Reiterate since you are already running Mana Geyser with the right amount of lands untapped this can net you infinite mana. A secondary rec with this combo in mind would be Sword of the Paruns as a mana sink to continually untap Brion.

Serene Master janky but also fun

Eternal Witness+Temur Sabertooth allow many combos for sure repeatedly getting pieces back with infinite mana.

A combo I've used in my Selvala, Heart of the Wilds deck before uses her to set up the combo with an infinite way of producing mana via having a creature with at least 5 power in play and the likes of Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle to repeately tap and untap her. From there you combine both Beast Within+Somberwald Stag to turn all your opponents' boards into 3/3 Beasts then have Somberwald Stag fight them all then return both cards with Eternal Witness+Somberwald Stag until your opponents have nothing left.

Hi ShredderTTN86! Welcome to the world of EDH elves! When I first began playing what is now my Ezuri, Renegade Leader build six years ago, I made a lot of mistakes, learned from that process, and made what is now a pretty strong list. As such, it think I can offer some help!

To begin with, you said your goal is to offer and Elf synergy list. That was also my goal years ago, and I ran Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury as the commander, but what I found was that it was a weird hybrid between and elf deck and a stompy deck, and its not really possible to do both well. You can definitely make a stompy deck that uses elf dorks and such for mana ramp, but most of your other elven synergies (lords and such) would need to be jettisoned for stompy cards. With Marwyn, the Nurturer you can really do either. If you wanted to go this route you would have just enough elf dorks and token spells to build counters, would protect her with Heroic Intervention and Wrap in Vigor effects, and would use her to dump as many big, dumb green creatures onto the battlefield as possible.

If you want to run true elves synergy, however, you want to cut any stompy creature that doesn't enable your elves (ex. Craterhoof Behemoth makes it but Ghalta, Primal Hunger does not, lower your curve, replace as many lands with dorks as possible, and play lots of elf lords. Keep in mind, elf lords also help Marwyn tap for more mana! I notice that you have tons of artifacts here that do nothing for most of your elves excepting Marwyn. I would probably cut a lot of these and add more elf creatures for a strong synergy build. Super powerful ones like The Ozolith and the infinite mana combo enabling Umbral Mantle should remain (you should also add Sword of the Paruns, which can also enable infinite mana with Marwyn), but even other good cards like Gauntlet of Power should be cut because you can do it better with elves. I think what surprises me most here is the lack of dorks. Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, and Fyndhorn Elves are the backbone of any elf build and core to most stompy ones too. You also don't want to neglect Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Springbloom Druid, which can up your elf count while finding and ramping out lands for you. As far as big mana tappers go, Circle of Dreams Druid, Wirewood Channeler, and Elvish Guidance are better than Gauntlet of Power and Karametra's Acolyte (which isn't an elf). Running synergy means you also want to run a lot of lords, such as Elvish Champion, Elvish Clancaller, Imperious Perfect, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Canopy Tactician, Joraga Warcaller, and Cultivator of Blades will buff both Marwyn and all of your elves, while also putting counters on Marwyn (for a double buff in effect) and moving you towards running your opponents over.

If you are interested, the link to my Ezuri Elf deck is here- Elfpocalypse Now! (Under Construction). The primer isn't finished yet, but even the sections that are there on the commander and on breaking down the tribe might help with the synergy piece. If you decide after all you'd rather just do stompy, there are other great experts on tappedout like Kamerot that can help with that! I hope this helps a bit, and please let me know if you want any additional help or have any further questions!

Guerric on Lathril's Relentless Elves

Hi again! I thought I'd put some of my specific suggestions here for easy reference, but definitely check out my answer to your forum question. I'll also post separately with cut suggestions.

1) Dorks- Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf (which is great with Elvish Guidance and the like, Boreal Druid, Elves of Deep Shadow, Heritage Druid (might as well make everything a dork!) You want all the dorks you can get!

2) Super-Tappers- Circle of Dreams Druid, Priest of Titania, Elvish Guidance. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip are also great if you can swing them financially.

3) Untappers for infinite mana with the above- Sword of the Paruns, Whispersilk Cloak

4) Mana-Sink kill spells for the above- Exsanguinate, Torment of Hailfire

5) Aristocrat payoff cards- Blood Artist, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Falkenrath Noble, Bastion of Remembrance

6) Sac Outlets- Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar if they are within your budget. Blasting Station will often kill players on its own with enough tokens. High Market and Phyrexian Tower are nice because they are lands and thus don't take up slots that could be taken up by little green men and women.

Hi ionlyplayelves and welcome to commander! This is the best format there is, and elves rock. I also play elves in most formats, and am working in completing my Ezuri, Renegade Leader primer at the moment. Once it is finished, one section will be on the similarities and differences between the three primary elves commanders in EDH, Ezuri, Lathril, and Rhys the Redeemed. One of the big takeaways is that there are a lot of similarities. You should think of Lathril as a primarily green deck with a black splash. You're happy to have black for excellent tutors, premium GB Elves like Shaman of the Pack, and removal, which lacks in mono-green. Most of your creatures should be classic green elves though. You want to cheat on your lands as much as possible and play all of the best dorks. I run 29 lands with no problem in Ezuri, and in Lathril I'd try to get it down to 32 if possible and 34 at most. You want Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, and other low cmc dorks, along with all of the super-tappers (Elvish Archdruid, Circle of Dreams Druid, Priest of Titania, and Wirewood Channeler. There is an infinite mana combo with any of these with Whispersilk Cloak and Sword of the Paruns that you should totally use. The big difference with Lathril is that you are an aristo-elves approach, so you want to add in a bunch of sacrifice outlets so that dead or alive your elves are always doing damage. There weren't enough of these in the precon. You also want aristocrat payoff cards even if they aren't elves like Blood Artist, Syr Konrad, the Grim, and Falkenrath Noble. You also should play Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire, which are devastating with your super-tappers and game-winning with infinite mana. Beyond this, I think my list might give you a lot of ideas. The primer is still in progress, but there is a lot there, and many cards from Ezuri will also be good in Lathril. You can find it here- Elfpocalypse Now! (Under Construction). Please feel free to add in any more questions or card analysis. I love to help, and I played GB elves in modern before EDH, so they have a special place in my heart!

Very nice, +1 from me. If I wasn't already running mono green elf ball and attempting a Golgari lands deck I would definitely build around this commander. Feel free to take a look at my own elf deck on my page if you're looking for some more inspiration.

Some suggestions if I may, feel free to take em or leave em: Glimpse of Nature / Guardian Project / Oakhame Adversary / Dark Confidant / Ohran Frostfang / Necropotence / Sylvan Library would all be excellent draw options in a deck like this and hopefully wouldn't slow you down too much. Highly recommend the last two since you'll most likely have the life for it.

Genesis Wave can be very powerful in the right deck. You might have too many instants/ sorceries for this to be viable, but it looks like you'd be able to generate plenty of mana to get some value out of it.

Elvish Champion would help get damage through and would pair nicely with your Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth.

Cover of Darkness would do much the same as Elvish Champion

Stoneforge Masterwork would be a huge pump for Lathril, Blade of the Elves and give you a burst of tokens.

Urza's Saga something that I've been working into almost all my decks since it tutors for fast mana or things like Stoneforge Masterwork / Skullclamp. Could speed up the deck quite a bit.

Not sure how you feel about infinites, but it looks like you're already running some infinite mana combos? For some additional infinite mana combos you could add Staff of Domination / Sword of the Paruns. Again my own elf deck would be a great resource for this since there's close to 100 different infinite mana combos in the deck.

Anyway, hope this helps. Cheers.

You might like these:

Personally I would cut these:

  • Spectral Searchlight (doesn't get Yurlok out faster)
  • Greenweaver Druid (doesn't get Yurlok out faster)
  • Dictate of the Twin Gods (does not amplify Yurlok's effect)
  • Blaze (not very impactful unless you are already in a strong position, in which case it is not needed)
  • Flameblast Dragon (same as Blaze)
  • Xantcha, Sleeper Agent (helps your opponents while hosing your strategy)
  • Howling Mine (helps opponents)
  • Koth of the Hammer (slow)
  • Klothys, God of Destiny (slow)
  • Thought Vessel (doesn't produce colored mana)
