Latest Decks as Commander
Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

Some excellent recommendations! I had not heard of the 'Ramos' line of artifacts which are really useful. I have played the deck as is and am wondering if Intet is really a 4th turn kind of Commander. The moment she comes out she gets destroyed because people know it will be used to cheat out other cards. Not to mention she is a 6/6 flyers dealing commander damage. I think I will re-evaluate my strategy. Lean in on the ETB effects and focus on turtling up before sending Intet out when the board is good and ready. Tribute Mage to get Swiftfoot Boots and other tutor cards to prep the board.
The double strike game is one I also thought about, though I think it is more flavorful than useful. You would need to have 6 mana open just to use Intet's attack trigger twice, and it makes Intet even more of a threat, ergo more of a target for removal. Lightning Greaves was in here, but I thought that shroud and hexproof given by Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak would have to suffice.
Again, many thanks for the recommendations.

So there's a competitive combo version of Jeleva and then there is fun Jeleva. I'm going to make suggestions based off what I think of as being more leaning towards the fun. The general idea I have in my head is to get some high cost spells exiled and cast them for free off her trigger. I haven't played much spellslinger pretty much ever but here's what I dug up. Not sure what your budget is though.
I'd also get some more protection for Jeleva. As each time she dies and is cast again you'll lose access to everything previously exiled. Not the worst thing but it can be nice to hit a few of the spells before having to recast her. Lightning Greaves, Whispersilk Cloak, Clout of the Dominus.
Do you have a clear vision of how the deck wins? Regardless the deck looks fun!

You want to make this a hybrid of Token/Voltron based instead? I consider putting Trailblazer's Boots and Whispersilk Cloak as easily you can pump your commander with soo many counters by just sacing your Treasure's. Also, why not mix things up with deathstuff like Quietus Spike

Of course! Again awesome job with coming up with this for your friend. I would just add that maybe you'd want to consider getting rid of the warrior subtheme, only because you could utilize more slots for heavier equipment and aura spells. If you want some inspiration (not saying it's the exact way to go) check out my Jor-Kadeen deck when you get the chance. Actually looking at your commander here, I should probably think of slotting him in my 99... you're running some neat dwarves here too!
Your commander already draws you cards which is awesome, but maybe Stone Haven Outfitter can also be nifty.

TypicalTimmy - following up on your advice, I removed Whispersilk Cloak and replaced it with Sword of the Animist. Whispersilk's a great card, but Shroud interacts unfavorably with Chandra's Ignition and Hammer of Nazahn. thanks for the rec!

Hi again! I thought I'd put some of my specific suggestions here for easy reference, but definitely check out my answer to your forum question. I'll also post separately with cut suggestions.
1) Dorks- Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf (which is great with Elvish Guidance and the like, Boreal Druid, Elves of Deep Shadow, Heritage Druid (might as well make everything a dork!) You want all the dorks you can get!
6) Sac Outlets- Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar if they are within your budget. Blasting Station will often kill players on its own with enough tokens. High Market and Phyrexian Tower are nice because they are lands and thus don't take up slots that could be taken up by little green men and women.

Hi ionlyplayelves and welcome to commander! This is the best format there is, and elves rock. I also play elves in most formats, and am working in completing my Ezuri, Renegade Leader primer at the moment. Once it is finished, one section will be on the similarities and differences between the three primary elves commanders in EDH, Ezuri, Lathril, and Rhys the Redeemed. One of the big takeaways is that there are a lot of similarities. You should think of Lathril as a primarily green deck with a black splash. You're happy to have black for excellent tutors, premium GB Elves like Shaman of the Pack, and removal, which lacks in mono-green. Most of your creatures should be classic green elves though. You want to cheat on your lands as much as possible and play all of the best dorks. I run 29 lands with no problem in Ezuri, and in Lathril I'd try to get it down to 32 if possible and 34 at most. You want Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, and other low cmc dorks, along with all of the super-tappers (Elvish Archdruid, Circle of Dreams Druid, Priest of Titania, and Wirewood Channeler. There is an infinite mana combo with any of these with Whispersilk Cloak and Sword of the Paruns that you should totally use. The big difference with Lathril is that you are an aristo-elves approach, so you want to add in a bunch of sacrifice outlets so that dead or alive your elves are always doing damage. There weren't enough of these in the precon. You also want aristocrat payoff cards even if they aren't elves like Blood Artist, Syr Konrad, the Grim, and Falkenrath Noble. You also should play Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire, which are devastating with your super-tappers and game-winning with infinite mana. Beyond this, I think my list might give you a lot of ideas. The primer is still in progress, but there is a lot there, and many cards from Ezuri will also be good in Lathril. You can find it here- Elfpocalypse Now! (Under Construction). Please feel free to add in any more questions or card analysis. I love to help, and I played GB elves in modern before EDH, so they have a special place in my heart!

Sorry about the delayed response, I was a bit tired last night and waited until morning. Fabricate probably could be cut. The targets are Whispersilk Cloak and Lightning Greaves which are sort of the easy button for protecting Scion, but we don't need them if we play conservatively.
I actually used to play Elemental Bond and Guardian Project in earlier versions of the deck, and while they are incredibly good in other decks, I found them to be at best win-more cards in this one. The thing is, creatures don't enter the battlefield as often as we might think. We can do a lot of damage with a small number of dragons, and some turns we won't have any new ones ETB. Where these cards payoff the most is when we play a mass recursion spell, but at that point we are winning the game anyway, so it isn't all that great. What does work incredibly well is Tome of Legends, which can pretty much get us an extra card for every turn we have it out, and Colossal Majesty is basically a second copy of Phyrexian Arena without the life loss, which is usually good enough. In a way, we are drawing cards by tutoring stuff into the graveyard, so we need our regular draw mostly to get our recursion pieces in hand.
Necromancy is good, and is definitely better than Unburial Rites which, while recurrable, is on the pricey side in terms of mana. I've mostly held out because it isn't super cheap, but I have some store credit at Card Kingdom and might pick that this week! I like Diabolic Servitude because it is recurrable- if the dragon dies it goes back to hand and we can use it again, and it's always a discount on hard-casting a card. You are right about the potential downside of the card being exiled, which is why I'd never use it on my most critical dragons like Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund. I should definitely add that to the primer though! As for Yawgmoth's Will, that is great, but I own all my decks in paper and the real world price tag is a bit prohibitive. It has its price tag for a reason though!
I hadn't thought of Rishkar's Expertise! I think this is a risky deck, and one which plays with big mana, so it probably is worth it! I'm definitely ok with burst card draw as long as it get's at least three cards for a good return on mana and I don't play too much of it. This card could easily refill my hand later in the game when I need it, and get me a free permanent on top of that. Great suggestion!
