Bow of Nylea Discussion

I'm not a huge personal fan of Bow of Nylea , it's not strictly bad but I just think it'll under perform for you. Derevi, Empyrial Tactician is somewhat out of place, it gives you the tap/untap on combat damage, but I think you can find cards to perform better.

They are not strictly warriors but just two fun little anthem creatures:

Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic

some other interesting stuff might be Eldrazi Monument , Herald's Horn , Coat of Arms to capitolize on tribal goodness... Wrap in Vigor might come in handy against a lot of sweepers and Bow of Nylea is just all around fantastic imo.

SP3CTR3_chelts I think I’ll remove 2 check lands from the deck since I don’t really feel comfortable going below 35 lands since I don’t have too much mana ramp in the deck, excluding the ones that put land onto the battlefield.

Then I’ll remove Combat Celebrant , Wild Pair , Gruul Spellbreaker , and Samut, Voice of Dissent , Bow of Nylea since a lot of the time the creatures don’t get blocked anyways, and swap out Coat of Arms for one of the other tribal artifact.

Swapping them out for 2-3 pieces of removal, maybe a Mystical Tutor , probably 1-2 signets for the deck into the deck for some more mana ramp, and getting Coastal Piracy and Keep Watch into the deck for some more card draw.

After looking at you combat trick section, I would vote for replacing Krosan Vorine with Lowland Tracker . It does cost 1 more mana, but it has first strike. You pair that with Bow of Nylea , Basilisk Collar , or Gorgon Flail (other strong inclusions in a deck with Mirri) and now the Tracker is just straight removal.

Also, some other fun cards with Lure effects are Druid's Call , Saber Ants , and Broodhatch Nantuko .

Shamanic Revelation can be pretty potent card draw in a token deck as well. Yes you need a board state to get anything, but it has pretty high upside.

Fun deck on a budget. I have a similar one linked below. How are you liking Pelt Collector?

Maybe Bow of Nylea or Shapers' Sanctuary in the side

Green Stompy is my deck like this that i have built

I love the concept, well done. Odric, Master Tactician could be good especially if you're going to add Bow of Nylea , essentially you get to choose which creature of your opponents dies each combat. He also provides a nice backup in case mirri gets locked out of the game.

One thing that is very important for an EDH mill deck are instant speed targeted player draw spells Stroke of Genius Blue Sun's Zenith Geier Reach Sanitarium Mikokoro, Center of the Sea even Words of Wisdom .

The shuffledrazi effect Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or effects that put cards back in your deck Bow of Nylea are put on the stack. You can force a draw before it resolves to take someone out.

Maybe lab maniac is Taboo in your playgroup but he's a good way to get around hexproof opponents like Shalai, Voice of Plenty Leyline of Sanctity and such. Detection Tower also helps with that.

Yeah that thought crossed my mind when I was trying to do too many things with Mirri before and scrapped it for this version. Glare of Subdual used to be on that list, and I ended up cutting most of the cards that tap opponents' creatures because they weren't really worth it. However Glare would still be useful in keeping Mirri tapped without need of the combat step and would allow me to get rid of any unfavorable blockers beforehand. I'll probably make room for it.

I want a Maze of Ith , but I have another deck it will go toward before this one, but it would definitely be useful here. Kor Haven might have to do in the meantime.

I used to have Basilisk Collar and Godsend in my old list as well. Somehow they didn't make it to this version. I wish Godsend didn't require 6 mana to get it on her, but with how much I can ramp I think it'll be all right. I don't know why I never included Bow of Nylea since it really should be in the deck.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll take a look at your list as well.
