Elves is a powerful, mono-Green creature-based combo deck, with a lot of built in redundancy and resiliency. The primary combo consists of utilizing Heritage Druid with Nettle Sentinel(s) to generate mana while Glimpse of Nature draws cards. After amassing enough bodies on the board, Craterhoof Behemoth comes down, either naturally or via Green Sun's Zenith or Natural Order and closes out the game. Green Sun's Zenith can tutor for missing pieces or simply function as a Llanowar Elf by grabbing Dryad Arbor, in addition to finding silver bullet cards like Scavenging Ooze, Reclamation Sage, or Gaddock Teeg. Natural Order can find standalone threats like Archon of Valor's Reach, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, or Progenitus on an emptier board. Llanowar Elves themselves, alongside Fyndhorn Elves and Birchlore Ranger, provide additional early acceleration. Wirewood Symbiote and Quirion Ranger provide additional mana acceleration as well as resiliency, dodging removal. Symbiote in particular is incredibly powerful, allowing you to re-use Elvish Visionary, Reclamation Sage, and Quirion Ranger. Gaea's Cradle is an incredible acceleration piece, to the point that some decks run Nissa, Vital Force to untap it and Crop Rotation to tutor it.
