Here is an Elf deck that I was bored and wanted to mess around with. Surprisingly (or not surprisingly) it has been stomping a few crotches. I don't think it's perfect because I run out of steam after about 5 or 6 turns, So I thought I would turn to M-L

My sideboard feels a little..bleh. No special tech in there, everything makes sense;

But i'm very open to suggestions. Thanks

Im playing elves too, a few ideas:

4x. Tectonic edge is a must. It kills manlands, and slows lots of decks. It kills valakut too.

The new elf lord which regenerates elves is quite good 2x. and his ability to overrun is awesome.

My deck uses mana elves a lot (4x llanowar, 4x arbor, 4x archdruid, 4x joraga treespeaker). I see yours is more midrange like, which will add some more consistence.

Leyline of vitality is great for sb against red. and multiple copies dont hurt, but enhance utility.

I would take out the titans, Fauna Shaman, and 1 Ezuri for:

+1 Joraga Warcaller
+4 Arbor Elf
+2 Eldrazi Monument

and I would run 1-2 more monuments sb.

And Leyline of Vitality is a really good sb card against red!!!!

Didn't think this qould get this many posts lol

I took a little advice from everyone, tested and WoW. a huge difference in match ups.

The leyline has preformed so well and so has the tec's :]

Why are you running Titan: for the mana ramp or for the beats? It seems to me you already have enough mana here to pump Ezuri about 3 times (assuming DoJ doesn't spoil your fun). Hmmm, maybe to grab more Tectonic Edges I guess, but it seems that all you really get out of it is the massive 6/6.

1 Leyline of Vitality md seems to be inefficient here.


Here's another list to chew on for a bit

19 Forests
4 Tectonic Edge
< 23 Lands>

4 Arbor Elf
4 Llanowar Elves
4 Joraga Warcaller
4 Elvish Archdruid
4 Nissa's Chosen
4 Fauna Shaman
1 Khalni Hydra/Primevil Titan
2 Wurmcoil Engine
2 Ezuri, Renegade Leader
<29 Creatures>

4 Vines of Vastwood
3 Nissa Revane
1 Garruk Wildspeaker
<8 Spells>

SB
4 Eldrazi Monument
4 Leyline of Vitality
4 Naturalize
3 Plummet

Methinks this list (which I came up with off the top of my head) sucks more than yours but I just wanted to show you a few other things you can do with Elves in type 2 right now.

I think Vines of Vastwood, if not MD, is a must for sb. Great card against RDW and Black, and wonderful for sneaking in that few bits of damage to finish off your opp.

Monument is probably overkill, but I've had good and bad experiences with it.

Plummet is great for the Baneslayer hate, but I don't see much other use of it. Naturalize is an absolute must against Ratchet Bomb.

I think Elves have moved up to Tier 1 again!

Mul-Daya Channeler is good if you're looking to spam the 3cc slot, but you really need both Arbor Elf and Llanowar Elves for that, so you can drop it turn 2.
