[[Llanowar Elves]] is currently in Standard. And they're the iconic elf mana dork. So the price difference is not that surprising.

Maybe [[Elvish Promenade]] can take [[Colossal Majesty]]'s place? I've been playing Elves since Lorwyn / Shadowmoor and, especially in the earlier days, making a ton of Elves always felt good.
On the same note, finding space for [[Gilt-Leaf Ambush]] may be worth it. These two spells are Tribal, so they also trigger [[Lys Alana Huntmaster]].

Something that may interest you. I've yet to test this, but it looks like it'll do well.

[[Virulent Sliver]]'s Poisonous 1 ability is NOT Infect.

Poisonous X: "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, that player gets X poison counter(s). A player with ten or more poison counters loses the game."

Infect: "This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters."

So Infect /replaces/ damage to the life total with giving the opponent poison counters. Poisonous triggers when the creature deals normal life total damage and gives X poison counters /in addition to/ the normal damage.

If I could work in a way to get Hellbent easier, [[Slithering Shade]] would be better than [[Whip of Erebos]]. Thinking of dropping [[Dismember]] for something else that's cheap, which would help reach Hellbent a little easier. No actual discard, but actually playing out the had quickly. Maybe a pair of [[Dread Wanderer]] for more 1 drops that also take advantage of an empty hand.

Great minds and all that :)

Thanks for the like.

Was trying to stay away from too many of the big "Devotion" cards ( [[Gray Merchant of Asphodel]] was too good not to include) as I wanted the Shades to be the focal point of the deck.
In a proper Devotion to Black deck would have a lot more value creatures, including [[Phyrexian Obliterator]].

Ye, the extraction cards are too expensive ._.
Luckily I have a set of [[Surgical Extraction]] already :)

[[Hydroid Krasis]] and [[Growth Spiral]] are the best reasons to add blue. But blue also opens up some other interesting cards, like Chemister's Insight, and / or the slew of counterspells (which could easily be sideboard or mainboard), like [[Absorb]].

[[Surgical Extraction]] and / or [[Extirpate]] are cheap (mana) cards that can force a shuffle. (NB: these can also hit nonbasic lands)

[[Archive Trap]] works well alongside [[Field of Ruin]], and it'd give a lot of targets for [[Surgical Extraction]] and / or [[Extirpate]].

Are you willing to go a 3rd colour? Because I think [[Growth Spiral]] and a number of other blue cards could help.

[[Wayward Swordtooth]] may also be worth considering. It works well with [[Crucible of Worlds]] after you've blown up all the lands.

I feel this deck wants the [[Arbor Elf]] + [[Utopia Sprawl]] combo (can replace [[Llanowar Elves]] and [[Elvish Mystic]] ). The combo allows for explosive mana ramp (as much as 4 available mana on turn 2), plus Sprawl being an enchantment makes it less likely to die early on.

While I'm aware that [[Verdant Rebirth]] and [[Viridescent Wisps]] are draw spells, I feel that [[Mutagenic Growth]] fits their slots better, mostly on raw burst damage.

While not a spell that can target, I think [[Rhythm of the Wild]] should find its way into the 75. Haste on these types of cretures can be a powerful effect.

The [[Wild Defiance]] + [[Zada, Hedron Grinder]] trick is pretty cool.

But there are a few spells I would use in place of others.
[[Blossoming Defense]] is a good card, but I personally prefer [[Vines of Vastwood]]. While for 1 mana it may seem worse, the kicker gives a bigger buff. But the reason I prefer it is you can use it to deny the opponent from targeting his own cretures.
I would also find a way to include [[Mutagenic Growth]] and possibly [[Gut Shot]] for "free" spells that target.

[[Nivmagus Elemental]] can "eat" copies of spells. You can "eat" them after all the triggered abilities are added to the stack.
[[Blistercoil Weird]] has a pseudo prowess effect.


Also, a note: Copied spells will not trigger [[Satyr Hoplite]]'s Heroic, because it only triggers if the spell targeting it was cast. Similarly, copied spells don't trigger Prowess, only the original one will.

It's also +1 devotion. Do not forget that when using devotion.

[[Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx]] isn't a must in all green devotion decks, but it may be good in here. If it is included, [[Garruk Wildspeaker]] and [[Utopia Sprawl]] should be considered too.

I do agree that [[Prowling Serpopard]] is, at very least, a good sideboard option.

[[Arbor Elf]] but no [[Utopia Sprawl]]?

cards with apostrophes in their names don't seem to work with the card link feature. I think Ian is looking into it.
Also, I screwed up on Korlash. My bad.

[[Goblin Arsonist]]'s ability can hit planeswalkers. The printed wording is from before the rules change to target planeswalkers separately. Arsonist is also a Goblin for [[Goblin Grenade]].

If you want to check if any card can or cannot target planeswalker, or look up any updated rulings, check the Oracle text on Gatherer:
