I would recommend using Titania's Chosen instead of Elivish Vanguard, since Titania's chosen gets a +1/+1 counter for every green spell, whenever you case Echoing Courage, or whatever else it will gain a counter also. Vanguard does cost a green less, but I don't think you're at any loss for mana in this deck.

Wirewood symbiote is an excellent card, but keep in mind that its ability can only be used once per turn and for that reason there isn't any infinate potential to it. But it does still work very well as you've said, to help untap creatures to block, and other similar things.

Your debate between Echoing Courage and Tribal Unity Echoing courage works well if you have many creatures with Hivemaster's insects, but its not so effective with elves since they'll never get mroe than +4/+4. Tribal Unity on the other hand has infinate potential, but a high(ish) casting const.

By the way, thanks for rating my deck your comments are excellent.

Well, the Titania's chosen thing is quite a question. Personally I also used Titania in the deck, becouse it grows even by your opponent's green spells and for multiplayer it's far better. I think I'll sideboard it. Becouse the one mana is no problem in a third or fourth round but there's nothing better than having the vanguard in on your second turn together with some other elf. It directly makes the opponent freeze in fear.

I think i will replace the echoing courage for Tribal unity. This spells is a final attack massacre and I think that by the time I'm attacking I will have a lot of mana already, so there is no use of having the weeker courage in the deck.

Anyway, thank you for rating my decks and having usefull arguments on certain cards. It really helps a lot.

Looks goos to, but ot mention on e thing, like slivers, im not a very big fan of elves. To me thewy are soo over-rated and practically everyone has one. But thts just my opionion. Your dec has been put together very well, and it seems to play nicely. Looks like alot of fun to me. Good job on your deck!

The thing about elves is that for two mana, I can cast Pyroclasm and kill everything. Coat of Arms? Shatter. Caller of the Claw? Counterspell. Or maybe another Pyroclasm. They are very fragile, and unlike their goblin friends, not very fast. Echoing Truth or Tribal Unity? How about neither and run Skullclamp? Then splash back for Death Match and Patriarch's Bidding. The Death Match can help your puny elves become mass-murders, while the Bidding makes them returnable mass-murders.

Just some ideas.

I have an elf deck and I run it a little differently. So I apologize but I can only suggest what I know works...
I run only 13 lands and use Quirion Rangers and Land Grant. It makes the deck have room for more good elves, and honestly, makes the deck fun to play. Also, since you already run Gaea's Cradle Buy and Birchlore Rangers Buy, you could throw in maybe 2 or 3 Winter Orb Buy. It may seem a bit risky, but your deck, as with many elf decks, can handle itself with a Winter Orb Buy.

Thanks for rating Pentaball. Plz r8 whichever other of my decks appeal to you when you have time.

pretty cool. One thing that i see that could help a lot especially with a rather large taunting elf, is get a way for elves to have trample.

Nice structure for your elf deck. Thanks for rating my White Surf Deck. I would suggest slate of ancestry for major card advantage. I've seen many elf decks powercreature themselves by the next turn.

Everyone please rate my White Surf Deck!! =) Ur8 I r8 yours

Nice deck, I suggest adding in another Gaea's Cradle and also 4 Llanowar Sentinel from Weatherlight and a few Seeker of Skybreak to work wonders with your Wellwishers.
