Elfball is a classic Magic strategy that shows up in a variety of formats. It relies on playing tons of Elves which combo with other Elves to generate mana and card draw so you can play even more Elves, and end the game with Overrun or a similar effect. The Modern version, for example, relies on Llanowar Elves and Heritage Druid for mana, Collected Company and/or Elvish Visionary for draw, and Ezuri, Renegade Leader as the finisher.

While there's no elves in Standard that work as a finisher, there is a big big pig: End-Raze Forerunners. Just like Ezuri, Renegade Leader, the pigs pump your team and give it trample so you can end the game in one swing. Dipping into blue gives the deck more card draw with Hydroid Krasis, as well as some disruption with Negate and Frilled Mystic. If you've ever wanted to play aggro, combo and control in the same deck, here's your chance.
