Said on Eilistraee...

I kind of prefer the "devotion to elves a la theros" [email protected]_only. I agree with your color issues to a degree. In terms of existing mtg depictions of drow lolth is monoblack and lolth loyal drow are monoblack. The nonlolth Drow are dipicted as green and white. I think based on what I have read about drow all of them are a little black. The only one who arnt are the converts who ran from lolth. Sort of like a drug user who gets clean and can't be around anything or anyone close to their previous life. I also think eilistraees mom was always g/b even before the fall and her dad was g/w. So it made sense to me.

I guess I get your points mostly. But if card designs took into account food chain and doubling season, how many cards would not have been created? Your objections to the first 2 abilities, svylunn exists. She has a much easier casting cost, she has a much less conditional indestructible, and she just gives away ward 1 for free. Nobody flipped a wig over that. I suggested walking it back on eilistraee to other elves AND keeping it conditional, but that's not enough evidently. I also suggested dumping the from exile bit but that's also not good enough? Let me edit it and then look at it

Svyelun was an inspiration yes, I was looking to make an elf tribal karador mixed with svyelun that worked as a mana dump while doing things elves lack like recursion.

I guess I get saying the last ability "doesn't feel like an elf ability " but that's exactly what eilistraee is trying to do in the lore, pull the drow up an out of the under dark. Exile feels closer to that then graveyard. Would it be better if you paid 3 or whatever to return them to your hand? Would it be better if you could only do it if you controlled 7 or less Elves? But that really doesn't make sense as gods tend to be more powerful with more followers. Not that wizards has portrayed them that way on a card.

So would it be better if it said "other elves get ward2"?

I guess maybe I underestimated the power of the cast from exile thing. I guess I thought limiting it to just creatures and just elf creatures at that chilled it out enough. And I really don't get the overloaded with keywords comments. You have 2, ward and indestructible and both are conditional. How's 2 too many?

As long as you control 5 or less elves, Eilistraee isn't a creature.

Other elves you control have Ward1

If Eilistraee is a creature, you may cast Elf creature cards from your graveyard

2/4

Edited

This would be my dream Elf graveyard commander. I wanted her to have conditional indestructible to make it fair...ish. I also wanted her to protect her followers so ward is again a more fair hexproof. And I wanted to show case her desire to raise the drow from the under dark and free them.

Too powerful? Did I nerf it?
