Taunting Elf

Creature — Elf

All creatures able to block Taunting Elf do so.

Well you seem to be lacking in flying defense. You could also use some recursion since your token production is only 8 cards I would personally drop the Arboreal Alliance since you are not producing that many tokens. And I know it is a way to use all the mana you can produce but you need some more reusable uses for the mana.

I spent most of this weekend testing your deck against some of mine which are also go wide strategies. And what I kept running into was that your ability to get damage through was struggling. I think you need to get some more sources of trample or bypassing defenders. Another problem I was having was you would be top decking to quickly.I felt it just kept running out of steam.

I personally would drop Arbor Elf for Argothian Elder. It may cost more mana but it would let you untap Nykthos without Yavimaya in play, drop Quirion Ranger for Seeker of Skybreak just a bit less hassle for untapping a creature. even though she gets an interesting trick when you have Ashaya out. I would also drop Woodland Bellower for the Skyshroud Poacher just because it is easier to reuse. Elvish Guidance can have its uses but I think Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is still a bit more useful, for your mana outlet I would absolutely keep Staff of Domination over Thousand-Year Elixir. I am surprised you dropped both Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen and Jagged-Scar Archers since those were your only real answers to flying maybe consider Raking Canopy or Gravity Well to help against flying heavy decks. Mobilize and Vitalize are a little too weak for the card slots I think. I think a couple of more useful options would actually be Taunting Elf, Nemesis Mask, and/or Tempting Licid of those 3 taunting elf is weakest. But what those would allow you to do is get your pumped up elves through with minimal losses and minimal investment for the finishing blow.

I do have more thoughts if you want but as always feedback on what you are aiming for always helps (EG: Going tall, going wide, elf ball, kill through combat, or focusing on I win effects (I don't like I win effects))

looks fun! +1

reason for no Taunting Elf? that could potentially 1 shot since all the defending players creatures are forced to all block taunting elf.

Awesome and stunning; this looks like so much fun to play! I totally agree too, the green old-borders aesthetics are on point!

If you are in the market for more card draw, Overwhelming Instinct or Fecundity could be useful?

I know old-school mass evasion is rather rare but Taunting Elf would help get your whole board to connect with a player. This is especially nice if you tend to rely on a handful really big pushes to take out players and secure a win :)

I really love ultra-budget builds like this! And I love how packed your creature list is :)

I noticed you have Taunting Elf in there! If you are in the market for a similar effect, I've had a lot of success with Shinen of Life's Roar . It's a little more expensive but Glaring Spotlight is another, more direct way of giving board evasion for those massive late-game attacks.

Vorinclex is definitely a great addition. Rhonas as well (I LOVE Amonkhet). I'd definitely recommend anything that adds a Lure effect. Lure , Noble Quarry , Taunting Elf , Shinen of Life's Roar and Alluring Scent are a few of that type of effect in mono green. Fill the board with all the deathtouchers and drop one of these lure effects and that's basically game. You might also want to think about adding more protection for Fynn himself. Ranger's Guile , Blossoming Defense , Heroic Intervention etc. If he attracts as much attention in Commander as he does in my historic deck on Arena, he's gonna need all the protection he can get.

This looks like a lot of fun!

Some creatures that I had a some success with in my old super-budget smash decks were Stampeding Elk Herd and Walker of the Grove. They might be fun here too!

For removal, I really like Wickerbough Elder and Mold Shambler; they can help thin the field and also provide a body that can swing in for damage later. I also like Mwonvuli Acid-Moss too as it ramps while also potentially taking out a myriad of really powerful lands that are really common in EDH. Though, Acid-Moss might be really hard to find and/or be much more expensive in your area :(

Explorer's Scope and Snake Umbra are can also be deceptively useful in any deck where attacking is it's main strategy.

In one of my other decks, I also had Taunting Elf, Shinen of Life's Roar, and Glaring Spotlight as budget ways to give your whole board mass-reach and close out games. They might be worth considering here as well?

This card is a little over $1 but if you ever have a little more to spend on a single card, Ulvenwald Tracker could be really nice here, especially with all your haste enablers!

Also feel free to dismiss all these recommendations! Your deck honestly looks really great and fun just as it is! :D
