I have quite a few shoeboxes full of fine luxury cardboard rectangles in my closet however; at the end of the day I just love me some classic Burn and Zoo Aggro playstyle decks.

I definitely underestimated Wirewood Symbiote and the value of ETB effects in elves. In my playtesting I have been leaning harder into Quirion Ranger and pursuing Tooth and Nail for my win condition. that Eladamri, Korvecdal absolutly seems amazing because it doesnt lock you into a creature type... I personally have been using Aether Vial to chuck out creatures from hand thinking that felt strong but the casting from the top of the library can just be absolutely busted i love it.

after watching the video I've come to these conclusions:

  • Shaman of the Pack will win the game via high Elf population; and that's pretty much all there is to it. Seems far and above to be the most consistent way for Elves to win.

  • Tooth and Nail needs a high elf population, a mana boon elf Priest of Titania/Elvish Archdruid that can as well as having targets for tooth and nail that are otherwise bricks/dead in your hand like Tyrant of Discord and Realm Razer (there are certainly better targets I just was having fun)

  • Craterhoof Behemoth is similar to tooth and nail for the requirements but can feel awkward because somtimes you can elves for mana and then suddenly not have enough attackers for lethal damage.

all in all im just kinda excited for elves in the upcoming near future... I think I wanna give them an honest try.

I am curious is anyone brewing or have a good blueprint for playing Elves in Modern 2024? With Modern now having access to:

I have an OLD elf deck that centered around Elvish Archdruid and Joraga Warcaller... But I just think there is better things the deck can do now with these retroactively made legal cards... is good ol' Craterhoof Behemoth or Tooth and Nail still sounding like good options?

Well at least blue also has a history with changing land types too with things like Convincing Mirage/Spreading Seas and Tideshaper Mystic.

White got a land hate card this set... a 2/2 creature that has an etb of destroying a non basic land and replacing it with a basic... very underwhelming and definitely deserved/could be better

wow.... this is probably huge for fish players...

Harbinger of the Seas {1}{U}{U} Creature — Merfolk Wizard

Nonbasic lands are Islands.

The rising moon calls mercilessly to the waves, commanding the sea to rise high enough to devour mountains.

2/2

I really wanted to get Fireblast printed into Modern... but we got this instead...

Skoa, Embermage {4}{R}{R} Legendary Creature — Goblin Wizard

When Skoa, Embermage enters the battlefield, deals 4 damage to any target.

Grandeur — Discard another card named Skoa, Embermage, Sacrifice two Mountains: Skoa deals 4 damage to any target.

“I need kindling. You’ll do nicely.”

Is it just be or does this almost feel like deciding to run Thunderous Wrath in burn... high damage payoff but a little bit too Janky?

One more thing I would like to say is that if your splashing for an off color getting those creatures into play is a lot easier Hushbringer for example is super easy to have as a sideboard option.

With the playtesting I've been doing there are 3 main observations I've made so far.

  • a blind break out on turn 2+ with no other plays available feels very... "why not" ... it pseudo tutors into a card your already playing/want to see and give it haste... however it does feel bad hitting one drops like Phoenix Chick and Monastery Swiftspear; and so far I've never WANTED to just add a card in hand but the option is nice I guess.

  • Regardless of the turn burning tree emissary into break out feels good amd almost feels mandatory to play together. Whether its turn 2 and just populating the board and putting on pressure or after a board wipe to get back into the game amd finish it.

  • digging for specific creatures for certain situations like Scavenging Ooze or Cankerbloom can feel really strong.

I echo DarkKiridon on all counts... I love it for the same reasons I love Indiana Jones it just blends action amd comedy in a near perfect way and yet could still be "serious/spooky" when needed amd called for.

This will be the set that makes Gruul/Naya Zoo Tier 1 for pioneer!

I have always wanted to build werewolves... but the thought of the transform mechanic/flipping cards throughout gameplay just scared me off it lol.

Anyways what do you think about Feral Encounter in a deck like this?
