Said on Marwyn's Elves...

#1

JoJosMagic: First of all thank you for all the suggestions and kind words! The deck started of as a budget build but with addition of cards like Gaea's Cradle and Mana Crypt I've moved passes this limitation and started to pour more funds in the deck however, I still want to limit over the total cost so will most likely not add cards like Mox Diamond, but adding a Doubling Season would definitely be on the table I'm not sure if it would be beneficial as it would most likely replace Hardened Scales. Where with a lot lower cost it does not being too much impact and generally it does the same as most triggers will be on Marwyn, the Nurturer when playing other elf's. So when it comes to doubling season I'm really unsure but I'm still considering it.

When it comes to Aggressive Mammoth I've already used it in earlier days of the deck however it is way to expensive for what it does, a more likely card that I'm considering for the deck is Nylea, God of the Hunt that gives trample to everything and more wile being 2 mana cheaper plus it is indestructible however, I'm still testing out Nylea, Keen-Eyed and those two would most likely have to trade places.

As the problem with lack of defence against fliers comes down strictly to the fact that my play group for some reason always runs a small number of creature with flying, regardless in any other meta this would proably a big weakness of the deck.

The Ozolith is already on its way in the mail and will definitely be a great addition and will provide extra "protection" from creature board wipes. Then regarding the planeswalkers Nissa Revane is definitely on my "to get" radar and will replace Nissa, Voice of Zendikar however my dilemma with this card is the first plus one ability that fetches Nissa's Chosen as I do not want to use one of my 99 for a 2/3 that can be fetched as I would prefer having any other card that already is in the deck so my question would be is it still worth it to add this nissa to the deck without the Nissa's chosen in my 99.

With cards like Blanchwood Armor, Presence of Gond and Colossification I really don't like using them as then the opponents get that 2 for 1 when they use a removal spell on the enchanted creature and my play group in particular tries to destroy any creature that has some "make it big" enchantment on it.

Then with God-Eternal Rhonas I'm stuck between getting him or Rhonas the Indomitable so I'll probably leave it to whichever I can get first on a good deal and then it will go in the deck.

And last but not least Harvest Season is a card that I was thinking about getting last night as if I'm understanding the card correctly, in this deck can fetch for all remaining forest in mid to late game as most of the creatures can be tapped but it would take the slot of Cultivate and as stupid as it sounds I love the full art cultivate art and it will be difficult to cut it from the deck :)

So sorry for the lengthy reply but you had some really good points and suggestions so it is really apricated and just wanted to do the justice with my answer to such great comments!

Sid_the_sloth Only saw your suggestion today and Joraga Warcaller arrived in the post today :) but thanks for the suggestion anyways it is definitively an elf powerhouse with quite few synergies in my deck with my favourite being Immaculate Magistrate! And believe it or not this was supposed to be a budget elf deck that's why mono green however I liked it so much I decided to take it up a level.
