No worries! It's nice to know someone is reading that insane pile of words out front. I went ahead and updated the introduction to include your deck!
Quote from Iansisle »A legitimate question, and I probably should have addressed it! I do think Generous Patron has a role in a budget or elf-centric build of Yeva, but I'm not nearly as bullish on it as you are, and I don't think I'd ever include it in my main list. It's fail case -- a mediocre elven body distributing +1/+1 counters to my creatures -- is pretty devastating, and that case is decided by the opponent. If they don't play any creatures, it's useless. Now, it's true a majority of the time your opponents will have creatures, especially in EDH, but I feel there are other, more reliable forms of card draw. Elvish Visionary, for example, provides half the card advantage guaranteed, without a fail case scenario, for one less mana. If it's working for you, I'm glad to hear! One of these times when I do a budget league I'll give it a test out and see if it performs better than my expectations.
