The Elvish Alliance 1.2

So here's my deck list for this week's FNM:

The Elvish Alliance 1.2

Side Board
4 Garruk Wildspeaker 1 Wolfbriar Elemental

4 Mold Shambler

Creatures 2 Windstorm
2 Arbor Elf 4 River Boa
4 Llanowar Elves 4 Tajuru Archer
4 Joraga Warcaller

4 Joraga Bard 15 Total
4 Vastwood Animist

4 Oran-Rief Survivalist

4 Turntimber Ranger

2 Elvish Archdruid


4 Quest for the Gemblades


1 Eldrazi Monument


21 Swamp

2 Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

60 Total

It is a modification of the deck I ran a few weeks ago at FNM and top 4'd with. The major changes are I swapped out Overrun for 2 more Garruk's, added another Oran-Rief, added two Elvish Archdruids. I think I streamlined it by dropping Beastmaster Ascension, Canopy Cover, and Khalani Heart Expedition. I would like to replace the Arbor Elves with more Archdruids, and I definitely need another Eldrazi Monument. I haven't played it yet, but hopfully I can get into the top 4 again. I think this deck probably gives me my best chance.

I think I definitely need help on the sideboard. I'll probably trade out two River Boa's for 2 more Windstorms if I can get them at the Spiral on Friday. That'll help with flying threats. I never really know what to do with side boards...

As far as other decks go, I had some great ideas for additions to my Blue-Black Ally Mill deck, but I decided I didn't want to spend the money on the cards I need since most of them are Alara block which will phase out in about 6 more months, plus all those new Eldrazi are going to kill mill decks. I really need to get more dual color lands if I want to play dual color decks. So far I've only played mono-black vamps and mono-green elves. The one week I did try my Blue-Black mill I got killed every game.

You should get a Nissa Revane and use it. Drop all your elves at once. :)
