For cuts, i'd think about removing reach creatures as that ability is worthless once you have flying already.

So:

Then I'd cut down creatures that aren't that great in their own and are just in her for redundancy like

You might also want to as m switch stronghold assassin to Attrition and run Viscera Seer as a reliable and continual sac engine.

Also, if you're feeling spicy, you can run Killing Wave . You can use it offensively to drain opponents, it just as a "sac any number of you creatures" for a single {B}, since you can cast it for X=0 and still choose to not pay for each of your creatures.

Glad you love the deck, man! :D As for your flying problem, I can't say that I have one. My meta usually consists of fast combo decks that aim to win around turn 5-6 or heavy control and stax decks. The deck currently has the best possible suite for general creature control without compromising the combo and as an added side bonus Great Oak Guardian can also help if absolutely needed.

Furthermore, there are other precautions you can take, like the Thornweald Archer . You can also use Kraul Harpooner and Emerald Charm . Personally, I don't like the other guys cause they do nothing for the combo at hand.

As for the Hexproof, you have access to Lignify and Song of the Dryads which can be brought out via Genesis Hydra . However, this is only relevant when you're trying to wipe the field with a pesky Hexproof creature and you're trying to end with Shaman of Forgotten Ways .

If damage is that much of an issue you can still make some concessions for something like Spore Frog or Timbermare for killing blows or set up a Turbofrog with Eternal Witness / Skullwinder .

However, if your pod makes you the archenemy because you're playing Yeva Draw-Grow, you might not be in the right arena. This is a deck that should be matched with similarly strong decks that don't rely on damage/voltron-like strategies that can pummel this deck in archenemy-like situations. Though, I promise you this deck will still manage to pull through those situations if played correctly and patiently as is.

I hope this helps!

Hey Inkmoth,

Love your deck. It has inspired me to build a Yeva deck of my own. My meta tends to have a reasonable amount of pesky flyers. Most of which hit hard with dragons or Voltron commanders like Sigarda, Host of Herons , Bruna, Light of Alabaster , etc. The powerful levels of these decks are around the 6-8/10 on the power level.

Have you had issues running into flying/evasive creatures? I've been mulling about putting in: Thornweald Archer , [Silklash Spider], and/or [Arashi, the Sky Asunder]. What are your thoughts on evasive aggro decks?

To counter flying just sideboard elf archers like Ezuri's Archers or Thornweald Archer . Or add and use Timberwatch Elf for insane power/toughness ramp on your Taunting Elf

just a little thought, instead of Might of the Masses should try Chorus of Might of might or maybe Elvish Herder to garuntee big damage.

I also think that you only need 2 of Lys Alana Huntmaster. Would get 1 more Elvish Visionary and Llanowar Elves instead.

Birchlore Rangers is also a great elf in pauper (considering Heritage Druid is only in modern :C )

Finally I would get a Nettle Sentinel as a 4 of in this deck. Drop your Silhana Ledgewalker and Thornweald Archer. Would maybe throw archers in sideboard cause without opposing flyers, it doesnt seem all that great.

Sorry if it was a bit mean but it is a good deck dont get me wrong. just if your gonna run 16 lands, you need more mana sources to make up for it and less cmc creatures.

I would add in Thornweald Archer for a bit of flying protection
