Strategy:
This deck is about gaining life with Wellwisher and finishing with Timberwatch elf. The trick is that you can untap them a lot with Quirion Ranger and Seeker of Skybreak. Quirion Ranger has great synergy with Skyshroud Ranger. Don't forget; you can use the Quirion Ranger twice: during your turn and during the opponents turn. When you see that you have more creatures than your opponent and a Timberwatch Elf (which you can untap) attack and pump the unblocked creature. Your opponent will be toast.
The Guildmage is great when you have a lot of mana (priest). It's the only reason why Skyshroud Elf is in the deck: the second ability can be pretty usefull sometimes. Hivemaster is very usefull: it creates lots of tokens (+life when you have Essence Warden). The Tokens are good to attack/block and to clamp. You have Wirewood Herald + clamp to search for them.
 
Sideboard:
Giant Growth vs Weenie and Burn
Repopulate vs any form of Mass Removal (infest, tremor, nausea, pyroclasm) and other removal/burn
Llanowar Elite vs Affinity (myr enforcer), Weenie (trample), other Elfs.
Taunting Elf vs Weenie, elfs
Molder vs Affinity, skullclamps, other nasty enchantments/artifacts
Tormod's Crypt vs Psychatog (remove Wonder and block), other decks who abuse the graveyard.
 
Tournament is in August, I'll keep track of my performance and write a report.
