Today I want to present a deck which is loved and hated all over the world . My friend Patrik (also known as Pennywise on the forums) played this deck since 12 years and is constantly improving it. He also got the 4th place on the Highlander Grand Prix three years ago. He tried different builds with a black and white splash or just green.
This build is mono green with a slighty white splash for Ravages of War and Armageddon since its obvious that a deck which got so many alternative mana sources can only benefit from such mighty spells. Additionally there are Mirror Entity and Ranger of Eos
Here is the list:
As you can see a lot of the cards are meant to be synergetic which is not unusual for a tribal deck like this. Since elves are one of the oldest tribes in magic there are a LOT of options to put in. I saw many many builds over the years. Straight aggro, aggro-control and even combo elves (yeah nothing spectacular in extended). Patrik tried also some combo elements like staff of domination or Progenitus. But he came to the conclusion that straight aggro with a very aggressive curve is the best way to go.
It would be very easy to implement some black cards since the deck is capable to splash any kind of colour for cards like Maelstrom Pulse or Putrefy and Demonic Tutor. As far as I know Patrik was not satisfied with these cards so he was going back to a more creatures less non creature spells – build. To implement the mass land destruction is in my view a very good call to the actual meta game.
A lot of 4-5c aggro decks are going wild and have such strong cards from all colours. He´s able to finish the game with just one spell against these decks. And even against control its a game winning card. Since its not my deck I cant write as much as you guys would like but I´ve seen it a lot in real life and think its one of the best tribal decks out there if not the best.
Its a force to reckon with. I lost on the last Grand Prix my only game in swiss against Gwb Elves and its insane what potential they have. I cant imagine any other deck which can get such explosives starts like elves. I hope you guys enjoy this list and feel free to ask.
