Burgeoning loses value quickly, maybe you could cut that.

Looks like a fun deck. The only part that seems a bit mediocre is the mana base. If you're going to start getting a few better pieces of land, I would go for Raging Ravine, Rootbound Crag, and a Stomping Ground

I don't have a Raging Ravine, or a Stomping ground yet. As for the Crag its currently being used in my Mayael deck. Could probably move it out of there and into here since I run a fair amount of mana fixing in Mayael to not notice it missing (Red is also the weakest color in the deck).

Yeah, as much I love the poor man's Exploration it can probably be cut. Probably toss it into a deck with Seedborn muse and Journeyer's Kite to get max value.

-Forest
-Burgeoning
+Rootbound Crag
+Comet Storm

Gonna need to play a few games before making any other cuts.

So I got a bit of post-Scars update. The deck has been doing pretty well but could still use some work. So far it either works really really well, or fails miserably. I also cash'd in some trade credit for some stuff, just wanted to get some games in before updating with those changes.

-Forest
+Boseiju, Who Shelters All
If I'm gonna dump all my mana into one glorious spell, it damn well aint geting countered.

-Nettle Sentinel
-Seeker of Skybreak
-Gempalm Strider
-Elvish Vanguard
-Azusa, Lost but Seeking-I don't run near enough land to get value out of this
-Viridian Shaman-Never really seemed to do anything. Considering I usually need my artifacts bad I don't want to have to smash them myself.
-Oracle of Mul Daya-See Azusa. Better if I ran Bloodline Shaman
-Glissa Sunseeker-Nullmage just works better
-Constant Mists-I really like this card, but I don't have the land to support multiple uses usually. Odds are if I have have to fog more then twice I'm screwed anyway
-Repopulate
-Ignite Memories-If I can make a big enough storm to win with this, I may as well just pour that mana elsewhere.
+Joraga Warcaller-More lords are always good
+Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary-
+Quirion Elves-Multi-color mana dork
+Immaculate Magistrate-Does unfair things with Joraga Warcaller
+Regal Force-He's awesome
+Moment's Peace-Works better then Constant Mists in this deck
+Squall Line-Fault Line, except doesn't wipe my board
+Banefire-For when a player needs to die
+Genesis Wave-This card is stupid with the mana I can pull off
+Elvish Promenade
+Sol Ring-This card is a godsend if gotten early.

Ezuri will definetly be getting added to the deck when I get one. He works as both a way to protect my creatures and he's another overrun. Farhaven Elf and Civic Wayfinder will likely be added to the deck when I get them. Thinking about trying Eldrazi Monument in the deck, but need to play a few more games to see what kind of board position usually look.

Nissa Chosen will likely be getting cut soon, even if it does reduce Nissa to a 4 mana Wellwisher. He's just too vanilla of a creature. Gilt-Leaf Archdruid will probably be cut for Ezuri, mostly because I don't want to always have a list ready so I know which elves were updated to druids.

Asceticism
Lifeline
Yavimaya Hollow

Darksteel (Anycreature) Just one that's indestructible and will hold the Lifeline.

If you're interested, I have a foil Radha that I had customized by Cardkitty, but don't have a deck for her anymore. Check out his site if you feel like, it, its the only Radha there, I believe. Anyway, good luck with the deck.

You get cool points for that line. Lifeline is definetly something I should add. The only thing I have against Asceticism is it doesn't solve my vulnerabilities to wraths, since most don't allow regeneration. Plus it'd be competing with Eldrazi Monument for anti-wrath tech.

Didn't even know about Lifeline, but its definetly something I'll keep an eye out for. My friend has a Shirei deck, and I know how crazy recurable creatures can get. I could probably make room for a Thornling or Darksteel Sentinal to keep my Lifeline going.

Quirion Ranger got cut long before I had most of the crazy mana accel Elves to build with. Could find room for it pretty easy if I looked.

+Eldrazi Monument

Its not that I don't like Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, its more that I don't want to have to bring a list with me for all the elves that got updated to druids. Kozilek just does Soultiller's job better. Taunting Elf was usually just skullclamp food anyway.

You don't play it in place of Eldrazi Monument, you play it in conjunction with Eldrazi Monument. Monument just makes your dudes hard to kill, Asceticism makes them untargetable. 5 mana to make all my dudes Troll Ascetic? Hell yes, sign me up!

Troll still dies to Wrath of God and the majority of the variants.

Wizards seems to have realized this is a problem, but that doesn't get rid of the 4289348219u7 variants on Wrath of God that don't allow regeneration, including the black ones like Plague Wind.

I'm still not sold on the card. Eladamri already gives my guys shroud, and I have a Steely Resolve to toss in if I really wanted too. There is also the deterrent of Kamahl on the board to hold wraths for a few turns. Asceticism just doesn't do anything other then be a mild annoyance.

I don't think too much has changed lately
-Aggravated Assault
-Mountain
-Rupture Spire
-Mirrodin's Core
+Stomping Grounds
+Thousand Year Elixir
+2 Forest
Aggravated Assault is really hard to combo out with, and its rare I need multiple combat phases in one turn to get a win. Elixir solves the problem of all my mana dorks getting nuked before I can use them. Hoping to get some new stuff later today for this deck.

Edit-Actually looked at the deck
-Voice of the Woods
+Wheel of Fortune
Card draw be awesome. After playing the deck for awhile I realized that untapping with 5 elves to make a 7/7 doesn't do much. Thinking of trying Copperhorn Scout in the deck, and need to make room for Eternal Witness (didn't realize I had extras)

Managed to get most of the stuff I've been looking for this deck.
-Argothian Elder
-Elvish Scrapper
-Frontier Guide
-Elvish Lyrist
-Moment's Peace
+Heart Warden
+Quirion Ranger
+Llanowar Druid
+Lifeline
+Phyrexian Altar
Argothian Elder and Frontier Guide just never seem to do enough. Scrapper and Lyrist also never seem to show up when I need them, or never last until I untap. I cut Moment's Peace just to see if it makes a difference or not. Pretty much everything added is just more mana-accel to let the deck explode faster.

Pretty much all that is left to be added to the deck is an Earthcraft, but I've never found one yet. Also want to swap Blasting Station for Goblin Bombardment.

Edit-After looking at some of my cards I realized a few things
-Eladamri, Lord of Leaves
-Elvish Champion
+Fauna Shaman
+Seeker of Skybreak
I realized I have a lot of Untap effects, which Eladamri doesn't work well with. Targeted removal isn't a big issue so he really isn't doing much. Elvish Champion just seems like a weak lord most of the time. Giving my smaller Elves +1/+1 usually means I can't cycle them with skullclamp, and the forest walk never really does anything. Fauna Shaman helps me exhange useless creatures in my hand for useful creatures, and Seeker helps with either powering up my creatures or ramping my mana

No Eladamri means room for Asceticism! LOL. Ever consider throwing in Helix Pinnacle for an alt win condition? If so, Seedborn Muse is an auto-include.

Its a possibility, but its getting really hard to cut things in this deck. I still need to figure what will be cut when I get a Goblin Bombardment and an Earthcraft. Its definetly something to consider though since maxing a helix pinnalce takes about twice the mana most of my other win conditions need.

I think you might find that untapping with a swarm of elves is not something many people are going to let you do. But I can see your problem in finding things to cut. Maybe considering losing something like Quirion Trailblazer (an expensive Rampant Growth on a stick) and/or Overrun (Kamahl does the same thing, but repeatedly). And don't forget about having a Darksteel Myr or something to make that Lifeline carry its weight. I know, I know... Too many cards, not enough space. I have the same problem with every deck...

No Gaea's Cradle?
