Boon Satyr Discussion
3 weeks ago
I like the idea of it but you should put in Primeval Titan so you can get the shrine more easily instead of trying to get it by drawing.
Take out the Eidolon of Blossoms and the Boon Satyr. You aren't playing enough enchantments often enough to make the Eidolon of Blossoms worth wile for you to play and the Boon Satyr is a cool card but not worth your time. Try to find more one drops, you want to be playing cards your first turn and they build up devotion quickly.
Also keep in mind by playing Courser of Kruphix your opponent gets to see the top card of your library as well meaning after you play it you will not have any secrets so they will know you don't have responses to certain plays. It is a nice card when your trying to find lands but after a couple of turns it starts to hurt you.
With any devotion deck you often find yourself with a lot of mana and nothing to use it on. And because you have so many creatures as part of the combo I recommend putting in a couple of cards that makes it easier for you to get them. Something like Tooth and Nail or maybe Fauna Shaman if your willing to let some cards go.
Just so your aware the entire combo has to net at least 7 green mana everytime you do it. The combo itself costs 6. 2 for the Temur Sabertooth, 2 to recast Voyaging Satyr, to retap Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. That is a pretty steep cost but I like it.
There are one or two cards I would recommended and once you look at them I think you'll like it. First Birds of Paradise for the reason it gets you any color, which is what you want, for one drop. Second Khalni Hydra looks really steep at first but then you realize you get to cast it for maybe 4 or 5 mana later in the game and it added 8 devotion so it helps you get to that minimum number to do the combo. Summoner's Pact is nice if your trying to get those last couple of pieces your looking for and don't have that mana for everything right this second. Eternal Witness is nice if you are worried about one or two of your pieces ending up in the graveyard or it can be there for you to grab something else that you liked. It adds two to devotion and it's a 2/1 body which is nice. Omnath, Locus of Mana is an extra way to store the left over mana you have every turn so that you can cast something big early. I might recommend Garruk Wildspeaker because you can use him to untap two lands one which can be Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx however it can only do it once and might not work super well with your deck you have here. Let me know if you have any questions :)

Most creatures with bestow (e.g., Boon Satyr) say "Enchanted creature gets ___." Note that creatures with bestow that convey a static buff, such as +2/+2, typically confer a buff equal to their own power and toughness.
Eidolon of Countless Battles and Nighthowler are formatted differently because they both have scaling P/T values. Rather than write one characteristic-defining ability or one instance of a scaling static ability for the creature and one more for the enchanted creature, the wording is combined. This has no functional effect on the way the cards operate.
Abilities that are worded "~ or enchanted creature" are typically triggered abilities, in which case only one of those objects needs to do something to trigger the ability. Take, for example, Spiteful Returned. Its ability says "or" because only the enchanted creature or only Spiteful Returned will be attacking. Auras don't attack, so having the phrase "whenever ~ and enchanted creature attack" would result in an ability that doesn't trigger.
tl;dr: The abilities are functionally identical to those on other creatures with bestow, even though they're formatted a little differently.

now to the deck...
Forced Adaptation seems waaay too slow, and despite seeing a devotion themed route, your devotion seems limited (most of your permanents only have G). How often does Nykthos become profitable/Aspect of Hydra pump for more then Giant Growth?
Boon Satyr and Briarhorn can serve a dual role here, and the flash and extra benefits are relevant (being both creatures/voltron buffs). and Unyaro Bees is both a mana sink, a huge boost to devotion and a nice evasive target for the enchantments. Garruk's Companion could be another badger for the deck.
additional voltron elements include Shield of the Oversoul, but the majority of the other targets vary depending on your opponent (regen, hexproof etc)
sideboard tech could include Raking Canopy to counter fliers and add devotion.

Have you ever thought of Abundant Growth. I like this for the cantrip and drawing two cards with Venduran Enchantress and the like.Also Courser of Kruphix is a decent enchantment creature body that gives card advantage, and Boon Satyr can be a useful card against higher toughness aggro creatures. I don't know how well Karametra, God of Harvests would work but if it's a guaranteed creature then it might be a good add.

Correction: +4/+2 from Boon Satyr and +2/+2 from his own ability for +6/+4 total
3 months ago
If you have bestowed an enchantment creature on Uril, the Miststalker, in this case Boon Satyr then he will receive +2/+2 from Boon Satyr and +2/+2 from his own ability, granting a total of +4/+4, and if you're looking for deck help you will want to go to the forums portion of the website, or look at decks others have made. Q&A is for generally only for asking for mechanics/rules/interactions types of questions.

Yep, Boon Satyr is another good card for this type of deck. I don't think I would switch him out for any of my current 3 drops but definitely could belong if someone wanted to make a build that included him
