Quote from MikePemulis »Anyone here playing around with the mono green Beastmaster and Craterhoof deck SaffronOlive put together this week? I wasn't aware of it until I got run over by Craterhoof and pals to -34 or something turn 4, preventing me from a 5-0. Looks more like Legacy Elves than anything, with Beastmaster replacing Glimpse.
Quote from spec.ops »So, I have finally decided, after finishing my primary deck, to move onto another deck. I have chosen elves! But, only because the art has improved. I never understood why punk rock and withered old men seemed to be MTGs vision of what elves looked like. With that out of the way, I most defiantly want to go Golgari for Shaman of the Pack and Stain the Mind to close out asap and counter Terminus.
Now, being new to elves, but having played against them many times, I have a question. How come Throne of the God-Pharaoh is not abused. It seems, at least to this untrained elf player, that it would add a lot of pressure to the opponent since elves seem to tap a shard of elves every turn. You can't tell me it is a win more card when it helps close games quicker and works in conjunction with SotP.

Welcome to the elvish society, my friend. I have always hated the old Llanowar Elves art, too.
Anyway, about Throne of the God-Pharaoh... by the time it was released in Amonkhet, everybody was testing it and it felt like a great option. When Bloodbraid Elf was unbanned though, it seemed like Kolaghan's Command became a nightmare, specially because at the same time Death's Shadow became a very popular deck. On the other hand, it is very good against control still. Cryptic Command becomes a lot less powerful when the Throne is on the battlefield. It also plays around Ensnaring Bridge when you have a Heritage Druid on the field and no Shaman of the Packs available to cast/search. Overall, it is still playble of course, but not as good as it seemed to be when released. An interesting otpion, I would say. Maybe it's kinda personal. You should definitely try it if you can.
Just a tip: if you're playing on MTGO, wait a bit before getting Heritage Druid. It spiked suddently for certain reasons in the end of january, but it will surely go back to normal soon (around 2 tickets).

Good stuff there and it feels good to be part of the shard! I come from a Robots and Goblin background so of course I gravitate to an artifact. Haha
I’m buying elves foil, but one slot at a time. I just got the full art llanowars for 6 bucks each so it was a steal.
What is the deal with Sentinel? I read an article where one guy said they were a win more card and would rather have a mana dork in staring hand. Any truth to this?
