Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers Discussion

Bow of Nylea is a great idea.
If i include bounce lands i don't think Ohran Frostfang would be a good idea since he is quite expensive in comparison to the rest of the deck.

I am contemplating removing two copies of Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers in exchange for two additional copies of Knight of Autumn, because of how useful the knights are, but the knights are useful primarily for their abilities, whereas the cavaliers are better in the long term. What does everyone else say about that?

I have always loved GW under-costed beaters and modern decks build around them. Naya Big Zoo is actually my favorite way to play the archetype, but here is my straight GW company list from a few years ago - Selesnya Company (Modern). I haven't updated it in forever, but honestly it wouldn't change that much besides possibly adding a Tireless Tracker and maybe 1-2 Knight of Autumn and Collector Ouphe in the board. Ranger-Captain of Eos is also something to look at, since it can get you Hexdrinker (if you play them) or Noble Hierarch or Dryad Militant .
If you just love GW creatures and wanna max out value from Wilt Leaf Liege you could play Conclave Cavalier or even Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers , but the best version of a GW stompy deck probably should not use them.
Have fun with your GW beatsticks! :)

While I usually play with faster cost-effective setups I did tested a lot with something like this list, let me give you my impressions.
First, if you can find more copies of these cards you should run 4 of Qasali Pridemage , Loxodon Smiter , Wilt-Leaf Liege , Fleecemane Lion . These are the core cards that win the game, should max them out.
Second, you definietly want more creatures total. About 28-30 is nice and consistent, any fewer and you won't be able to keep a decent fighting force on the field. Add cheap common creatures like Llanowar Elves and 2 more Steward of Valeron to gain mana faster. Maybe a few heavy hitters like 1 more Oversoul of Dusk or Wolfir Silverheart . Or if you can find some of these Kitchen Finks Knight of Autumn Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers .
Third, too many basic lands. With that many same color sources it will be harder to cast the multicolored spells. Many games live or die by the stability of the mana base. The obvious but very pricey choice is Windswept Heath wich is nice with Knight of the Reliquary , or Temple Garden . Cheaper alternatives are Sunpetal Grove and Canopy Vista , cheapest is Selesnya Guildgate . Whatever you pick, you need more color stability.
2 more Dromoka's Command would be nice too, filling the removal/defense slot. Shapers' Sanctuary will often be a dead card if you opponent doesn't target your creatures, you could replace it with 2 more Shield of the Oversoul .
You don't need to go big money to make a nice Selesnya Midrange get competitive.

As mentioned in previous discussions, there is little reason for this deck to be green white. The only card which is white other than the commander currently are Journey to Nowhere , and then there are 2 cards which are hybrid mana in Mercy Killing and Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers . Both of these are either easily replaced, or are mostly cut-able anyway.
Your choices from there mostly depend on which way you would like the deck to go.
In G/B your best option Nath of the Gilt-Leaf as this allows you to be an elf deck that can have board and hand control, with black removal and other tutor based options. This will be a good midrange option that allows you to grind out games and stop others going off by ripping their hands apart.
In G/U you end up with more combo options. The easily best is Momir Vig, Simic Visionary but its also the most combo based and complicated. Other than that you have Edric, Spymaster of Trest which can help you keep cards flowing. Tishana, Voice of Thunder is also another way to draw a lot of cards, but isn't actually an elf herself.

Heres my list of suggestions
Curve the deck to 60 cards
Strength of the Pack is way too expensive for a deck like this
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be fairly good for dumping your hand due to the amount of devotion in the deck
Aspect of Hydra is bonkers in mono-green decks like this
Since you have no removal, I'd add Dismember
I'd consider Experiment One because it can get big, fast

Anyway the deck is good, +1 from me :)
