Padlio77 on Howl of the Night Pack

5dollarMTG I think that Nissa's Pilgrimage might come out to be better than Cultivate, since the deck changed to mono-green.

Wren's Run Packmaster is a great card, but an elf synergy is needed. In this case, 3x Sylvan Ranger, 2x Wren's Run Packmaster for 3x Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, 2x Cultivate + 4x Llanowar Elves, might be ok.

Cool deck idea! I'm working on a budget wolf deck myself right now.

3cmc is pretty much the going rate for two lands. Nissa's Pilgrimage gives you the possibility of three for 3, but it won't let you grab a mountain for Immerwolf.

Llanowar Elves is definitely the best budget ramp for green. If you want, you could replace Sylvan Ranger with Scorned Villager  Flip, which is more on theme.

The other card that could help you get to Howl of the Nightpack is Wren's Run Packmaster (although you probably want to keep Sylvan Ranger as a champion target if you're going to run that). Your opponent will be less likely to attack into a bunch of deathtouch creatures, giving you more time to set up for nightpack.

Thanks for all the love over at 5dollarMTG - I'll let you know when I get my own wolf deck posted!

Hey, nice version of Freyalise.

I would stay away from artifact ramp that doesn't make green mana. It's just not needed, green mana is too important and Elves calling card is making mana so you shouldn't have any trouble doing that. Joraga Treespeaker can be pretty powerful ramp one drop Elf. Arbor Elf is another one drop mana Elf. Land ramp spells are the same, while they can get you a Forest then aren't Elves. Instead play Elves who can land ramp or get you a Forest: Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , Sylvan Ranger . Any time you can get an effect from a spell with an Elf then play the Elf instead.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Enter the Unknown
  • Rampant Growth
  • Kodama's Reach
  • Thran Dynamo
  • Lotus Bloom

Quirion Ranger , Wirewood Symbiote and Wirewood Lodge can be busted with Archdruid and Priest to make a lot of green mana even infinite mana with Umbral Mantle or budget Sword of the Paruns . Ranger and Symbiote together combo which can be good with an Elf who has an ETB (enter the battlefield) ability such as Visionary or Reclamation Sage .

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Hunting Triad
  • Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar

Fauna Shaman , Elvish Harbinger , Wirewood Herald and Fierce Empath are Elf creature tutors to tutor for an Elf or a finisher creature. Fauna can be repeatable creature tutor getting into your hand the Elves you want. I like Genesis with Fauna because Fauna can put it into your graveyard which then becomes a repeatable way to recur Elves from your graveyard, board wipe insurance.

Herald can be some more board wipe insurance because when it dies you get to tutor for an Elf. Empath can tutor for Regal Force who's good mass draw card with Elves or Ibex or Vorinclex. Yes, Freyalise's -6 is a mass draw effect, but this effect is a worth having some redundancy since since it's so good with Elves.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Kalonian Twingrove
  • Kaysa
  • Elvish Piper
  • Drove of Elves
  • Mul Daya Channelers
  • Ambush Commander

Elves have a tendency to run out of steam if you don't have a repeatable draw engine. Consider Beast Whisperer , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Skullclamp ? Skullcamp is busted draw with Freyalise's ability to make 1/1 Elf tokens. It and Bestiary are artifacts within the budget here that are worth playing.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Primeval Bounty
  • Vivien of the Arkbow
  • Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

I offer more advice if you would like it. Good luck with your deck.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking
