I will help! I had the same thing with my Chasm Skulker deck, someone told me it was not a good card in constructed. My deck "Kill it before it breeds" (sorry, tappedout doesn't like the name) is my response to that challenge. Feel welcome to make suggestions. For your deck, I recommend more card draw. I hav used Ordeal of Thassa and Divination to buff chasm by 8 counters in a single turn. Use Bident of Thassa instead of Dictate of Kruphix , as it is more one-sided and it will not be that hard to hit your opponent. I would include a sack engine so you can generate your army if you need it Life's Legacy does really well, plus you can use it to buff chasm with a sacrificial Boon Satyr . Lastly, a personal thing, I would take out Coral Barrier for Prognostic Sphinx ans the sphinx is a better blocker, you have an open spot in your mana curve, and scry is really useful to cycle through useless cards to draw the ones you need. Hope you beat your friend! Chasm Skulker for the win!
Thanks! I've just started into the game so I don't have a big bank to trade from, but I've got a wishlist to round it out which currently sits at:
1x Courser of Kruphix (another good blocker if nothing else while I ramp up, and lifegain never hurts)
1x Genesis Hydra (it's a mini-chord of calling that can be played early if I just need some creatures on the field, or held back until I can drop it for X=8 or more)
4x Mistcutter Hydra for sideboard
2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx which I'd probably swap out for 2 forests
I could then drop 3x Reclamation Sage and 1x Setessan Tactics to the sideboard, and lose one more card total to fit it all in. Probably a Boon Satyr or Voyaging Satyr ... I'm discovering that the hardest part of deckbuilding is what to drop!
My local scene is fairly casual and often plays multiplayer Modern so in a 4-player game there's usually a target for Reclamation Sage , but if I was going into a 1v1 environment like FNM I'd sideboard it happily.
You can never go wrong with green fatty ramp. :D
I suggest throwing a second Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in. 1 isn't enough, especially in monocolored decks; 2 or 3 is best, though once you start running 3 or 4 you risk drawing one while your other is already out, which sucks because it's legendary. But trust me, you want to get a Nykthos out every game, especially in a monocolored ramp deck like this.
As far as manadorks go, you're looking fine; I think you should make some changes to your fatties. With the insane amount of ramp you have going (16 dorks including Courser of Kruphix compared to 14 fatties and Nissa, Worldwaker , who in this deck is just a bomb), I feel Hydra Broodmaster should at LEAST be a two-of, maybe even a three-of. His monstrosity is sick, and will get even better once Supreme Verdict leaves standard. I'm not sure how Nessian Wilds Ravager fares in standard, so I guess he's fine. Same with Genesis Hydra . Nylea, God of the Hunt , Soul of New Phyrexia , Boon Satyr , and Arbor Colossus are all good choices. Kalonian Hydra is wonderful, though I'd keep a backup solution for when he rotates in September. Some additions I feel you should make are definitely Polukranos, World Eater as at least a two-of, and Terra Stomper as a backup plan when things rotate.
Something you seem to have overlooked is a sideboard. I think you should move all three of your copies of Reclamation Sage to the sideboard, as while Constellation is somewhat of a thing in standard, I still don't feel that there are enough enchantments (or artifacts) in standard right now to mainboard the sage, even as a one-of. I don't know what your local meta/playgroup is like, though I still feel you should move him to the sideboard. I would also move a copy of Setessan Tactics to the sideboard for creature-heavy decks. Adding some Arbor Colossus es and Mistcutter Hydra s to the sideboard shouldn't hurt either.
This deck looks great, and I wish you luck with building it! :D
I would replace Soul of Zendikar with Arbor Colossus because he gives you more devotion for your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and it gives you 1 more devotion, and Soul's ability isn't even worth triggering. Genesis Hydra isn't a good hydra in my opinion, as you can run Mistcutter Hydra for more because he cost 1 less and he comes with Protection from Blue, Haste, and he can't be countered, making sure he hits the board, and in ramp he can become things as of 100+/100+. I would replace the Ancient Silverback with Reverent Hunter because he can get huge in Mono Green Devotion, and will be hard to remove. I would also run 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as it is a Legendary Land, and I would run 2x Boon Satyr in it's place, as it has Flash, and it's a 4/2 for 3, the value is off the charts in that card. Just some suggestions, thought I'd share.
Sorry, I forget sometimes, I got you now. One more thing I noticed is you're pretty slim on Green mana with only 7 sources. That might be tough to consistently cast Boon Satyr every time. Maybe trade 2 Caves of Koilos for 2 Temple of Plenty or 2 Temple of Malady .
I would mainboard 4 Boon Satyr . Because it is pretty much the strongest bestow card in the format. I would actually get rid of all of your instant's and replace them with 4x Ranger's Guile and and 4x Mortal's Resolve because the second your creature gets killed you lose... I would put in two more Setessan Oathsworn since now you have a bunch of heroic enablers.
I would also say get rid of a Satyr Grovedancer since it doesn't even trigger bestow and one counter means nothing.
I say you should sideboard all of your pump spells against the decks that have big creatures and little removal. Hope this helps.
freyhackbarth I do not have a playset of Boon Satyr but i do have master of the feast. Also I had 2 Urborg until someone suggested to go with 1. Also I run into a lot of kill spells and the hexproof of Reaper is much better than the extra body with Genesis. Lastly having 5 legendary land can be harmful. Drawing dead land is never a good thing.
