David Vo's Legacy Elves

David Vo made the Top 8 of the recent StarCityGames.com Legacy Open in Atlanta. The deck that got him there there? A combo build, but this "combo" deck plays a LOT of creatures. That's because it's Elf combo! By casting a ton of the cheap threats after a Glimpse of Nature, he gets to draw a card repeatedly. Each Elf combines with Heritage Druid to generate mana, and from there you're just a hop, a skip, and a jump to casting Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to take an extra turn and annihilate your opponent (literally!). You can read coverage of the event at StarCityGames.com.
