This is currently my strongest deck, and is perfectly capable of comboing off by T5. The game plan is to get Selvala, some untap effects, and a mana sink (preferably Omnath or Hero’s Bane) into the same room, and watch the fun. There’s tutors and draw spells to get missing components, Haste and Trample enablers to make the kill easier, and some assorted utility effects.

A sample game might look like this.

T1
Play Forest.
Tap Forest for G, cast Llanowar Elves.
T2
Play Wirewood Lodge.
Tap Forest, Wirewood Lodge, Llanowar Elves for 1GG, cast Selvala.
T3
Play Forest.
Tap 2x Forest, Llanowar Elves, Wirewood Lodge for 1GGG. Pay G to Selvala for GG (1GGGG floating), cast Hero’s Bane (4/4).
T4
Tap Llanowar Elves for G, cast Quirion Ranger.
Tap Forest for G. Pay G to Selvala for GGGG, double Hero’s Bane for 2GG (8/8)
Return tapped Forest to hand with Quirion Ranger to untap Selvala.
Tap Forest for G.Pay G to Selvala for 8 green, double Hero’s Bane for 2GG (16/16) (4 green floating)
G from floating to Wirewood Lodge to untap Selvala. (3 green floating)
G from floating to Selvala for 16 green. Double heroes bane 3 times for 6 generic and 6 green (128/128). (6 green floating)
1G from floating to cast Primal Rage, 3G from floating to cast Fungal Sprouting, creating 128 1/1 Saprolings. (0 floating)
Attack for lethal against an opponent, then continue around the table as neccessary.

Note that I assume the T4 lad drop is missed, and casting the Quirion Ranger T1 would only move the game back by one turn, with an opportunity to cast, say, Priest of Titania on T2.

After some more goldfishing, I may just set this deck aside as an example of What Not To Do.

Having a 274,877,906,944/274,877,906,944 Hero's Bane and casting Fungal Sprouting on it (on T7) is maybe not the game I want to play.

Maybe , and/or to protect your creatures? Last two work with Selvala, too.

I've added Asceticism, but not updated the list. Current foci for improvement are resiliency and consistency., both of which were negected in the first draft. Will get my first real games in tonight.

Sorry about not replying to that - I assume you’ve discovered the answer by now. She’s nuts.

So I’ve been reading up on legacy elves, which seems to play in a similar manner to this deck from an untap effect point of view. The question came up: is good enough to include as part of the untap package on the off chance it’ll intersect with ?

Edit- geez. I need to update the OP.

OP updated. No change log, because its extensive. Mostly i doubled down on the things the deck wanted to be doing.

One minor thing, I would without hesitation replace Sylvan Caryatid with either or . Sylvan does very little to help Selvala get out earlier, and it isn't an elf so it doesn't synergize with Priest, Archdruid, or the Packmaster.

That’s probably correct.

Not sure why I ended up with the Caratyid, honestly. Maybe I wanted resiliency, so hexproof? Boreal was in there at one point. Probably I’ll end up with Arbor Elf so I can still play Selvala of a forest and a utility land.

If the deck plays like Legacy Elves, maybe you should try .

Patron of the Orochi - seems expensive for the effect
Instill Energy - lets you get 2 for 1'd
Nature's Chosen - lets you get 2 for 1'd

If you remove some the redundant combo pieces and put in more reactive spells the deck would goldfish less and be more interactive. Beast Within and Krosan Grip come to mind first.

Also, could help you protect the combo.

I noticed you're playing Burgeoning but not or or or . Any reason?
