So you can either play it political or just swarm. Most people I run into don't run tribal though.

you should add a liliana vess and a garruk primal hunter, the liliana so you can use her -2 ability to search out oracle and imperious perfect and garruk to swarm 3/3 beasts and potentially 6/6 wurms. also a sol ring, and it may sound weird but a pestilence to combo with your vigor to make your guys rediculous, and kamahl, fist of krosa and a overun, maybe a gaea's anthem just so your guys get rediculous. then id also use a parallel lives to double your elf token out put.

liliana great idea works with commander discard ability as well. id love sol ring but to expensive for one card $20+.primal hunter would be good but i need wildspeaker to get lands and he makes beasts if i need to anyway. i already have ezuri to do kamahl's ability. parralel lives though is nice

Sol Ring is cheap now since it was remade, I picked mine up for 5, also doubling season since it doubles tokens and +1/+1 counters on your guys

oh and a rofellos cuz he can make stuff get stupid really quick, then maybe a sheoldred, damnation, plaguewind, oblivion stone, and all is dust just so you have board wipes, and if you want to protect yourself from your board wipes then use mycosynth lattice and darksteel forge which will make your guys indestructible. but there is a lot of other things iid do but it is very good for a first edh deck

firs take out coat of arms and Patriarch's Bidding. With inistrad and dark ascencion out a lot of people are running creature based decks in edh. Also, try putting a witchbane orb in so you don't get screwed by the burn and mill decks that are popping up everywear. also sol ring, spellbook, swiftfoot boots and lighting greaves are a must have for any edh deck.

I would still use rofellos, hes not as slow as he seems, i mean he recently got banned as a general for how good and fast he is

yeah rofellos is great thrown him in there as another mana gainer. refering to other card combo's.

0
Posted 03 February 2012 at 15:17

if you use rofellos id also use staff of domination since it can create and infinite loop for mana and do other stupid stuff

From personal experience if you're running a creature based deck use cards such as asceticism and eldrazi monument (since you run token producers). I also completely disagree with taking out patriarchs bidding and coat of arms as although they help others they help you more, and since when is playing something friendly bad in EDH, being selfish is stupid.

Also mana wise, I find elvish guidance brilliant as it is less prone to removal than your elvish equivalents and works well with arbor elf. Also wirewood is good despite being worse then priest of titania it is still better than ezuris archers for example. Lys alana huntmaster is also a must and so is thousand-year elixir.

Sorry for the long post. If you need any other inspiration check out my elf EDH http://www.mtgvault.com/ViewDeck.aspx?DeckID=164673 or infact any of my other EDH decks.

As it was stated somewhere up there, you want a Lightning Greaves. I would replace the Swiftfoot Boots with them, personally.

I agree Lightning Greaves are a much better choice.

Elder Dragon Highlander. basically you you have a 100 card deck, with no doubles. except for basic lands.

I would use more discard, to make use of Nath's advantages with such mechanics. Things like Mind Twist, Mind Shatter, Death Cloud, and Myojin of Night's Reach.. Sadistic Hypnotist would also be nice, because you can just sac a creature and force them all to discard their hands, and still leaving you with more elf tokens.

This will just put Nath's discard ability to more use, and will net you more elf tokens.

Staff of domination-infinite life.. Who doesn't love that especially in an elf deck
Akroma memorial? I just love that card
Overgrown tomb- obvious card
Fetchlands- filtering is very important
Chord of calling: instant green zenith one of my favorite cards xp
Flynhorn elves: older llanowar xD
Vengevine: this card was so fun in my elf deck :] and combo with fauna
Garruk 2.0: he can draw. Cards and pump tokens AND turn lands into wurm(never used it lol) a versatile harmonize
TUTORS: your edh deck ain't going nowhere without them (vampiric, demonic, grim(if ur rich), imperial seal(if ur filthy rich)
Ulamog?: what u gonna do with all the mana floating around?
Regal force: good green draw with a body
Tooth and Nail: With the right combo, its instantly game when u cast it
Concordant crossroad: green haste enchant
Praetors?: pretty good in edh i guess
Birthing pod… :LOL u do have the curve for it... Somewhat
Doubling season: since u seems to be making a shitload of token
1 castblack disruption: thoughtseize, inquisition of kozilek etc.

Have u ever play against a heavy board wiping deck? Cuz thats the edh that i paly and it's a BIG problem for elves. And how about burn decks?? My legacy elves's worst enemy was burn decks so you should really think about that.

I know this is ALLT of writing but just trying to help :]

looks good. Although I still think that a nissa revane would be way good in here, along with a nissa's chosen. but, thats just my opinion. :) In all honesty I don't like commander or EDH, and I don't normally comment on that kind of deck. But I like this one a lot, and if I ever played those formats I would probably run something like this. :)

Talara's Battalion, Drove of Elves, Voice of The Woods, Adaptive Automaton or Brass Herald, and Elvish Guidance. The other thing I'd add is either vitalizing wind or overrun. I know Vitalizing wind costs 9 but with elves it can be played alot faster than that.

Sorry didn't see elvish guidance before. Nice deck otherwise. Another elf I personally like is Elvish Pioneer.
