Consider replacing Saprazzan Heir, Slippery Bogle, Avacyn's Pilgrim, and maybe maybe Boomerang.

Consider adding Plague Myr, Quirion Elves, Viridian Corrupter, or Biomass Mutation.

  • Looking to increase the presence of 1. Infect, 2. Elves, 3. Multi-Color Flexibility, 4. Legendary Creatures, and 5. 1/1 Creatures that are worth it.

Infect needs to have presence to be worth it and to combo with Exalted.

Elf presence makes tribal perks from Allosaurus Shepherd worth it.

Good 1/1 Creatures allow both legendary lands to give value when board is brought down to base power 1/1 through Humility or Godhead of Awe.

It is also helpful to bring most creatures CMC to 2, so that Uncage the Menagerie is more flexible in that range and has better ROI for mana spent.

I echo the above. Unless you deliberately build a deck around the concept of running different creatures with different names, it’s almost always unwise to run a variety of 1-of’s when you could trim it down to run playsets. There are a small minority of cards that play into this style (Maze’s End, Signal the Clans and Uncage the Menagerie come to mind), but what you have here doesn’t lend itself to strategies like that.

(could run some number of rituals to "combo out" faster, allow things like Jokulhaups + Combo Piece more quickly.)

A few more creature tutors to dig out Zirda would really help to abuse your commander such as Chord of Calling , Uncage the Menagerie , Defense of the Heart and Green Sun's Zenith .

SwoollyLoxodon I saw a mention of Uncage the Menagerie yesterday and thought it might be good for gathering some elves. Thoughts?
