I like Gilded Goose well enough. Not being able to go 3-drop into 4-drop like other elves can is a real downside, but gaining life off the food late-game comes up often enough,that it's a nice benefit. Synergies with Oko, Thief of Crowns is also nice if you include Oko.
I'll add it back into my cube for a second round of testing if the opinions on this forum of Gilded Goose is positive. I find Green's power comes from both its 3 and 4 drops.
I'm not sold on the synergy with oko though - everything works well with Oko.
We already have 9 1 mana mana dorks that tap for mana. If you count Joraga Treespeaker then we have ten.
I think 1 mana dorks are great and I would add any bird/elf variants into my cube but I think people are forgetting we have also have Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl that function almost ideally to elves.

I'm actively maintaining a comprehensive article to help explain to new cube players how some complex vintage level cards work in a cube environment.
