Bow of Nylea Discussion

Pal00ka on Budget Junk? In standard? Is that possible? (post)

2 hours ago

I agree with comments above, the deck is clear on what it wants to do, and it does it. +1

But in that same sense, you focus so much on what YOU want to do that it doesn't seem able to react to the opponent.

Gods Willing and Oppressive Rays would add a shade of budget reaction to keep the flow in your favor.

Sungrace Pegasus + Sunbond would be wicked.

And have you considered Bow of Nylea ? I might suggest 1 bow and 1 whip; I see them complementing your deck wonderfully but not necessary as wincons.

If you can get your hands on Karametra's Acolyte (s), it would help out a lot. And maybe cut it down to two Prophet of Kruphix , and take out Woodborn Behemoth , and Floodtide Serpent , to add 2 Kiora's Follower . And maybe a Nessian Game Warden it looks like a good creature search. And for a side board card Bow of Nylea , it puts +1 +1 counters on your creatures It may be helpful

My suggestions are all by assuming you can get these cards easily. I do like your deck so one up

KaimyouMTG on G/R Midrange (Post Rotation)

I'm just going to start by saying I don't know what kind of deck you're going for, but what I recommend will make the deck smoother and more efficient than what you have here. If you're going for a certain kind of setup, then ignore what I have to say.

Okay, with that out of the way, you should never run removal in a deck like this. (Mizzium Mortars was the exception because it didn't hit your stuff.) If you Anger of the Gods you kill your own Elvish Mystic , Sylvan Caryatid , and Voyaging Satyr , which is a big no-no. Harness by Force also seems completely useless. Your creatures are bigger, why would you ever want to take their stuff except in a mirror matchup?

You don't need Genesis Hydra AND Chord of Calling . In my opinion, Genesis > Chord because of it's 2 for 1 potential. If you do run Genesis, take out anything in your main deck that isn't a creature or Planeswalker.

Take Stormbreath Dragon , Nylea's Disciple and Bow of Nylea out of the main. Bow is great in the sideboard, amazing actually. Nylea's should be a 4 of in the sideboard for agressive match ups. (I'd cut a singular Mistcutter Hydra by the way.) Stormbreath doesn't fit the theme of Green Devotion, but it's a great card against decks with sweepers or anything with white.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Voyaging Satyr = Infinite Mana; I have absolutely no idea why you don't have at least a singular Nykthos. And even then, I'd run 4 just so you can guarantee it's explosive plays. (And if you draw a second with Courser of Kruphix , it's always a free point of life.)

Add some Wooded Foothills in. I know you can't afford them at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't fine tune your deck for when you do get them. I'd go as far as to say to keep the Rugged Highlands if you're going to be running things with double red in the cost.

The rest are little touch ups: make sure Polukranos, World Eater is a 4 of. I'd add another Nylea, God of the Hunt , her pump effect and giving other creatures trample in itself is invaluable. Try to find room for at least 2 Arbor Colossus in the main, or side at the very least. They have HUGE value, especially with Nykthos. Cut a Xenagos, The Reveler , you don't need 4 but 3 is fine. I'd add in 2 Nissa, Worldwaker and/or Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker personally. You don't need more than 1 Hornet Queen , so either commit to it in the main or on the sideboard. Ranger's Guile is useless, replace it with 2 Setessan Tactics . You don't really need Phyrexian Revoker because quite frankly you can just smash their Planeswalkers. Reclamation Sage is fine, but Polis Crusher is also another good option.

I hoped this helped, I'm not trying to be invasive or anything but I feel these changes would smooth your deck out the most. A lot of these cards seem either too situational or just downright bad for a green deck.

goblinguiderevealpls on Green Devotion

1 day ago

Experiment One Rancor Vines of Vastwood essential for green stompy decks, theres also tons of big aggressive devotion creatures and hexproof as green Kalonian Tusker Strangleroot Geist Leatherback Baloth Thrun, the Last Troll . mono green aggro is a thing in modern, it won a GP recently and is only ~100$, devotion is too slow for modern, depending on how competitive people you play with is, but this seems weird. its a mix of urzatron without the severe mana ramp of urza lands, it would take ages to get emrakul out with this deck, and splashing red seems pointless in a deck thats mostly green. if you're going for a midrange deck in modern you NEED low mana control spells to buy you the first half of the game or you'll be overrun by aggro decks and/or burnt out by control decks, its a fun idea but i dont see this winning many games, the green decks right now that compete are mono green aggro, hatebears, gruul urzatron, jund control, junk aggro and melira pod, devotion is MUCH more a standard mechanic the only god thats seen in competitive modern is Thassa, God of the Sea in merfolk, tbh nylea is really bad, but Bow of Nylea is amazing in aggro

flamesoldier on New deck for FNM Centaur ...

1 day ago

Ok so I built and out a lot of thought into this deck to make it as competitive as possible. It's monogreen devotion with centaurs instead of mana accelerators such as Sylvan Caryatid . I plan on making this my primary FNM deck. Let me know your thoughts on the deck the good, the bad, and improvement. Here is the list


4 Elvish Mystic

4 Swordwise Centaur

3 Bassara Tower Archer

4 Courser of Kruphix

2 Nessian Courser

4 Pheres-Band Warchief

2 Nylea, God of the Hunt

2 Fated Intervention

1 Arbor Colossus

2 Kalonian Twingrove

1 Hornet Queen


3 Ranger's Guile

3 Setessan Tactics

2 Bow of Nylea


20 Forest

3 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Thanks again guys!

Indigoindigo on Bant with Prophet+Yisan combo

2 days ago

Reid Duke recently wrote a couple of articles about the combo with Prophet of Kruphix and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard here and here. I'm wondering if a similar strategy might work post-rotation in bant?

The core of the deck:
4x Elvish Mystic - Ramp
4x Kiora's Follower - Ramp and Yisan-untap
4x Yisan, the Wanderer Bard
4x Prophet of Kruphix
4x Banishing Light - Stall until Prophet+Bard is on the board.

Other cards:
1-2x Eidolon of Blossoms for card draw. Works well with Banishing Light .
1x Ephara, God of the Polis for card draw.
1x Hornet Nest for tokens and defence.
1x Hornet Queen for tokens and defence.
1x Jalira, Master Polymorphist sac tokens for value.
1x Sagu Mauler Huge beater
1x Prognostic Sphinx Better draws
Bow of Nylea Works with Eidolon, make my ramp into late game beaters.
Chord of Calling Additional tutoring.
Curse of the Swine Good removal with lot of mana.
Ajani, Mentor of Heroes Additional tutoring.

Any other suggestions for making the Prophet+Bard combo standard playable?

Nomp on Ferocious Creatures- Psych!

3 days ago

I think Dictate of Karametra should replace Bow of Nylea . The bow doesn't do very much for you since it is mostly utility for creature stuff like the +1/+1 counters it deals out. Dictate of Karametra boosts your mana production which lets you hit that Crater's Claws for lethal earlier.

Hey, I just received your cards today. I thought you said you couldn't find your two Cyclonic Rift s but I got both of them in addition to the Bow of Nylea and Primeval Bounty (the Triskelion was missing but its value is negligible). Do you want me to send them back to you, or anything of equal value from my binder? Price
