Bow of Nylea Discussion

Rinth I really like the idea of using Bow of Nylea in this deck! After I playtest this deck and make cuts that will be sure to be one of the first revisions I make!

I am going to jump on this Temur hype train! I am also going to suggest Bow of Nylea. This is one card that I think Surrak players miss sometimes. Unless getting plenty of trample damage isn't a huge problem for you, then this card will make it happen. Deathtouch and trample is crazy and the bow's utility is just a bonus.

Great deck and Surrak for life!!

Why not Bow of Nylea

Of the cards you mentioned, Scavenging Ooze is amazing and should definitely be among your main 60, Vines of Vastwood and Experiment One are great but only in aggro strategies (and the latter needs to be in a really creature-heavy deck, which is not what midrange wants to be), Bow of Nylea is a nice toolbox but a bit too easy to hate on, Avatar of the Resolute and Abzan Charm are okay but there are much better options in the Modern card pool and Ready / Willing is awful. And of all those, only Abzan Charm and Bow of Nylea can be called "versatile".

If you want to build a solid midrange deck, you need to balance out threats and answers. If all your deck thinks about is putting out big creatures, pumping them with counters and beating face, you're not playing midrange at all. You want things like Thoughtseize, Abrupt Decay, Lingering Souls and Liliana of the Veil, so you can disrupt the opposing player's gameplan instead of just thinking of your own. You don't need a ton of creatures and pump spells to play B/G/x - most decks play only 8-10 big creatures, if that many.

I'm looking for cards that can do many jobs for a midrange deck. It's mostly green, but will most likely end up G/B/W

Cards I've found so far:

Abzan Charm: Three extremely useful effects. You'll usually need at least one of them.

Avatar of the Resolute: Strong early, strong later, trample for attack, reach for blocking.

Experiment One: Grows in size to beat face, or repeatedly blocks so long as you keep triggering evolve.

Ready / Willing: Two cards with two effects each like holy cow. Either side can completely change the meaning of a combat phase. Surprise vigilance, anti board wipe, tons of life, it can do a lot.

Vines of Vastwood: Pump, protection, and disruption for 1 to 2 mana. Staple green card imo.

Bow of Nylea: I could see this being strong in a deck that plays with counters or stalls on life.

Scavenging Ooze: Lifegain for stalling, +1/+1 counters for combat.

I am pretty sure Bow of Nylea was in the deck at some point but I took it out to go more combo. Seeing as my main win con now is to tear their faces off it will probably enter back in. What do you think of possibly adding in Chandra, Flamecaller to the deck? She rips faces off, draws cards and can board wipe if it gets too hectic. thoughts?

I love both those ideas. Skullclamp and Birthing Pod would have amazing synergy, especially if one of your card draw creatures was in play too. Bow of Nylea would add further insult to injury with Dolmen Gate, as well as add more counters to Ulasht, the Hate Seed if you like.
