Evacuations are outright bad in a deck with so many creatures. Lignify might be worth looking into. Serrated arrows could be good too.

To be honest, it sounds lame, but no one is going to test your deck, but you, so you should know what you lose to and just think about cards that will help.

while goyf is an awesome card, I don't think he gets fed properly in that deck. Three mistake snakes would be better. Two birds is almost pointless. Two copies of a card means you want to get it mid-game and who the hell wants to draw a bird on turn five or six?

The manlands, while good might want to be dropped down a bit. I like conclaves a lot because they evade and can piggyback on fairy deck cards. I think Ohrans might have a good home in such a deck because they will trade with just about anything they run into. Maindeck hammers seem strong. Another Garruk seems good too.
Honestly, you should shoot for a UG goodstuff deck and ditch stuff like epochrasite, snake and goyfs (if only because what your opponent is doing will be the biggest factor in whether or not they are just elven warriors).

If you are really hurting for perpetual blockers/attackers, stick epochrasite in the sideboard.

what cards in faerie decks does conclave piggy back as you put it.

The next time someone says something about adding Experiment Kraj to the deck I'm just going to delete this damn topic, I don't know if you're too dumb to realize it's not T2 anymore or joking, but either way...its not funny anymore.

And Engrishskill, most of your advice is very helpful, but I would never take out Tarmogoyf from the deck. After Cryptic Command, Goyf is the very best card in the deck. Thats why the deck's nickname is "CounterGoyf". In my recent testings I took out the Epo's for one more Bird, one more Garruk, and 2 Ohran Vipers.

Haha @ Engrishskill's post: "mistake snakes"
I agree with McRishel. Epochrasite is really mediocre. Desert is probably a bad idea since you have UUU, UUG, and GG in your costs. Maybe add a Teferi or two?
Experiment Kraj is also an Ooze Mutant, which doesn't fit into Lorwyn or Morningtide at all Smile
