Wirewood Channeler Discussion
3 weeks ago
The old Freed from the Reel is still very potent in Tasigur. Also, we have aay better dorks and enablers now. Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy with any dork that creates any color is unbound mana. Fatestitcher/Vizier of Tumbling Sands with Simic Growth Chamber does the trick too. Krosan Restorer with threshold gets there too. Wirewood Channeler and Argothian Elder are pretty cool too. Oh and Bloom Tender is at an all time low right now - you probably get the idea. Also, if you haven't you should take a look at pastigur, Cameron from the lab maniacs did an awesome job on that list even if its dated itll probably still hold it's own or at the very least be the fun police.

Hate to double post, but Intruder Alarm makes me think of Temur Sabertooth . I think you'd need access to 4 mana to generate infinite mana that way (and a 1 mana creature to bounce), not sure if that is feasible with your deck, you might have to switch some of the single mana dorks for 2 or better dorks. Argothian Elder is versatile, but I think Wirewood Channeler might be a good solution, since it should be good for at least 2 with your Commander out, if not 3 or more since it counts everyone's elves, and it can make any colour. There is also Priest of Titania but not having access to blue would be a drawback, and that's not a cheap card to test with anymore.
This is just some brainstorming I got up to this morning, hope it gives you something to work with.

Hey, I'm impressed, well done building your deck on a budget with like 90% cards from Commander Legends.
Commander Legends was an amazing set for Elves especially Miara. Unfortunately, to make any real impact from upgrades you're going to want to add more cards from other sets, but most cards you add could be $1 or less each and still make a huge impact.
An advantage of Elves as a tribe is ramp, more specifically one drop mana Elves and Elves who can tap to make a lot of mana. No other tribe has as many one drop mana creatures or creatures who can make a ton of mana. By adding more mana Elves you can reduce the amount of lands while increasing the amount of Elves. More ramp from Elves is wanted by both your Commanders to cast Nadier quicker and to pay more into X with Numa. Both of your Commanders don't do much without lots of ramp.
- Elves of Deep Shadow : can make black mana.
- Elvish Mystic
- Elvish Archdruid
- Marwyn, the Nurturer : less than $1.
- Elvish Guidance
- Viridian Joiner
- Wirewood Channeler : less than $1, can make black mana.
- Birchlore Rangers : can make black mana.
Archdruid is the budget Elf who defines the tribe since he's an anthem for Elves and can make as much green mana as Elves you control. Marwyn and Joiner are good with Numa, Joraga Chieftain since they want counters put on them, they care about how much power they have. Marwyn is also good with Elf tokens since each token that's created puts a counter on her. Guidance has excellent interaction with Arbor Elf if you enchant a Forest or Woodland Chasm .
- Prowess of the Fair
- Elderfang Venom
- Elvish Warmaster
- Lys Alana Huntmaster
- Elven Ambush
- Wolverine Riders
These cards would expand on the Elf token theme and Prowess is unique since it's an Elf that's not a creature. Expanding on the token strategy makes Nadier better. Warmaster is another mana sink to pump and give Elves deathtouch. Elderfang doesn't create tokens like the other cards, but it has good interaction with them. Letting you swing with your Elves and opponents have to make difficult decisions about what to do.
I offer more advice including cuts to make. Would you like more advice?
Good luck with your deck.

These too: Lathril, Blade of the Elves , Wirewood Channeler , Elvish Archdruid , Priest of Titania , Elvish Warmaster , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Lys Alana Huntmaster , Tyvar Kell , Wolverine Riders , Fauna Shaman
Personally I would cut these: Treeshaker Chimera (costly, not on theme), Sheoldred (costly, general already kinda fills the same role), Wildborn Preserver (weak effect), Penumbra Wurm (costly, not on theme), Pelakka Wurm (costly, not on theme), Protean Hulk (costly), Noxious Gearhulk (costly, weak effect), Destructor Dragon (costly), Gift of Doom (costly), Kokusho, the Evening Star (costly), Moldgraf Monstrosity (costly), Verdurous Gearhulk (costly, weak effect), Claws of Gix (there are plenty of better sac outlets), Entreat the Dead (costly)

I have a similar deck, using Nath as commander. If you're not against big elfballs, use Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, (already have), and Wirewood Channeler. Any one of those three is infinite mana/life/draw with Staff of Domination. Then you draw into a big ball spell like Hurricane, Squall Line, Torment of Hailfire or Death Cloud. That's how you elfball.

I've been trying to find the right balance in my Lathril build as well.
Cards I think are cuttable here: Just Beaters - You are looking to flood the board with elves and pump up Lathril to make more elves. Traditional beater type creatures don't do much for you here so you can probably lose cards like Heedless One , Abomination of Llanowar and Elvish Vanguard . These cards don't do anything for you other than get big and swing which is counter productive to you strat.
Big Mana Producers - You want to flood the board early and elves in general don't have high CMC so you can probably lose some of the higher cmc mana dorks like Wirewood Channeler , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Joraga Treespeaker and Incubation Druid .
Other - Unless you plan on a lifegain subtheme you can cut Nissa Revane . I can't run Coat of Arms in my group because there are a lot of other tribal decks that also benefit from it. Higher mana elves like Eyeblight Cullers and Exquisite Huntmaster and Nath of the Gilt-Leaf are all cards I would consider cutting to bring down the average CMC.
Obviously just my opinions, I don't know if you have pet cards or what your plaugroup looks like just thought I could share my line of thinking!
