The way my deck works is pretty basic.
The Elves come out
quickly for mana, the Wild Growth and Primal Growth also help for the mana.
You want to get in as much damage as possible in the beginning, which is
why the Giant Growths are there.
You have the Skyshroud Elf to
convert G to R and use that ability to pump up the Sandstone Warrior with all
your mana or as necessary. Because it has First Strike, it can kill almost
any creatures that blocks it. The Priest of Titania can pump it up by
about 15 if you untap it with the Seeker of Skybreak to tap it again. The
Skyshroud Elf is CRUCIAL! The Keldon Berserker uses the fact that all
lands are tapped to get +3/+0. The Wall of Fire is to block any attacking
creatures and kill it if you can by pumping it up; it also helps to tap out for
The Yavimaya Barbarian is there because it is an Elf
and adds to the mana from Priest of Titania and it is a decent attacker if you
use Rancor or the like. The Flailing Soldier is a cheap (R) pumpable that
also has a bad side but it is good in the beginning. The Rolling Thunder
and Stream of Life is good to kill the opponent's creatures or gain life.
The Frenzied Tilling is just there to help you get the upper-hand
mana-wise, which if you don't have, then the deck isn't working.
3 Bloodfire Dwarf
2 Spore Frog
2 Shattering Pulse
2 Crown of Flames
1 Spidersilk Armor
2 Captain's Maneuver
I put the Bloodfire Dwarf
in the Sideboard because my friend has a "Tim" Deck, which would be what my deck
is weak to. The Spore Frog is to be used as a small creature until you
need to sacrifice it; i.e. a Lord of the Pit attacks you. The Shattering
Pulse is there to destroy annoying artifacts, although Viashino Heretic* works
well too. The Crown of Flames basically gives the enchanted creature
Firebreathe. The Spidersilk Armor lets all my creatures block flying
creatures to go against the Flying creatures.
I would have Main-decked the
Armadillo Cloak and the Captain's Maneuver but the deck doesn't use W, so you
would need the Skyshroud Elf to use these.
You probably noticed that a
Simoon or something would have killed all of the elves, thus ruining this deck,
and I agree. This deck is weak to a burn deck or a permission deck.
