Vivien, Champion of the Wilds

Legendary Planeswalker — Vivien

You may cast creature spells as though they had flash.

+1: Until your next turn, up to one target creature gains vigilance and reach.

-2: Look at the top three cards of your library. Exile one face down and put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order. For as long as it remains exiled, you may look at that card and you may cast it if it’s a creature card.

devin444: Thanks for the comment and this flurry of suggestions. I recently added Muse. It's a great card, and with Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Yeva, Nature's Herald, I can basically have four turns per rotation. Seems pretty powerful.

Caller of the Pack and Liege of the Tangle seem interesting, but actually don't add all that much to the deck. The rest of your suggestions sure is powerful, but those price tags don't sit right with me. Thank you very much, still. I'm always thank ful for having to consider new cards. Btw, you inspired me to consider Chatterstorm and Hunting Pack. The deck often playes like a storm deck anyways, so those two could be stellar, but maybe a little win-more.

I really like this take on elfball. It looks like it has a lot of avenues of play, which I have a mono-green elfball deck, and a lot of the time that's the downside. Like, sometimes it feels like I'm just waiting on the right card rather than being proactive with what's on the board, and that seems like a way that this deck really shines. Here are a couple things I can think of from my green deck and from a little bit of experience I have in modern golgari.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds Emergence Zone and/or Yeva, Nature's Herald can give your creatures flash, which is always nice, but I'd expect it to play very well with deathtouch. Just the threat of flashing things in when you are a creature deck can keep your opponents from attacking.

Crashing Drawbridge will net a ton of mana if you get it down early. It's slower than Thousand-Year Elixir but it can also give you some surprise attacks that elixir can't.

Vivien, Monsters' Advocate is a really nice planeswalker. The tutor ability can be invaluable. It's similar to Pyre of Heroes which is also an awesome card for creature decks.

Eternal Witness and Den Protector are great for recurring things that got removed. Survivors' Bond is great with them too. It can get back and elf plus witness who can then get something else back or wait in hand.

Pattern of Rebirth is a viscous card if they don't have enchantment removal. A lot of the time it basically makes a creature unblockable or makes everyone at the table stop attacking into you.

Kenrith's Transformation kinda just does it all. It's removal, it draws a card, you can buff a dork if you really need to. All in all, it's a very versatile card and always preforms something great.

Wren's Run Packmaster can just be a nice beater that takes the place of a dork, it can be a mana dump, it can create amazing blockers, and can even be tutored by Elvish Harbinger as well as any other creature tutor. It's a good creature by itself and if you do ever go infinite mana, it's a wincon with drawbridge or another haste enabler.

Lolth, Spider Queen is a great planeswalker for a deck with a lot of dies triggers. Getting the ultimate is not that hard and it can turn all of your small creatures into huge threats. Might be a little pricey though, and planeswalkers are never the best in edh, but it's a very potent one.

Slippery Bogbonder gives you a flash in blocker and also protection for any of your creatures. Best part is that the hexproof sticks around and you can even send counters to that creature. It's nice when your counterspell adds another creature to your board.

That's all I can think of :) This deck looks pretty awesome, and is giving me ideas on how to spice up my own one. There are plenty of infinite mana combos in elfball too, but it seemed like you were going for more of an attacking strategy.

Thanks for posting this one!

Actually yo imagine giving your Phyrexian Obliterator flash somehow, like with Vivien, Champion of the Wilds or Savage Summoning.

Then you'd be ambushing your opponents for real. You'd effectively get your opponent to walk into the Obliterator and force them to sacc stuff they wouldn't have otherwise sacced.

Prosperous Innkeeper is also another good treasure creator for ramp purposes.

Ryotenchi Cheers. Vivien, Champion of the Wilds does seem like an interesting option if I do end up trying to force bringing Hornet Nest back, though I think that build would end up looking very different to this one (i'd want more useful interaction with Vivien and the Nest in general), so possibly another deck entirely. At the moment I'm enjoyed the typical Rock build with the added Obliterator spice, it's done pretty well at my local, and has mostly good matchups.

My biggest thing at the moment is making time for this deck to figure out what changes I need to make to it with the big meta changeup from MH2. I'm still slowly getting my other decks fine-tuned, so haven't had much time to come back to this one yet. I suspect I don't need to change it too much other than have more turn-1 ways to stop the pesky Monkey from taking over.

Oof.

Cute deck..

Solid fight combo. I'd recommend Vivien, Champion of the Wilds if you want to play hornet's nest.

Plus flash obliterator lolz.

Nicely done—this looks like a ton of fun to play! Because you’re so creature heavy, how about Vivien, Champion of the Wilds ?
