Bow of Nylea Discussion

kynrayn on COME TO THE OTHER SIDE ... TO DIE (update)

This is a deck i've been wanting to try. I'm gonna try it with Roar of Challenge. take their creature then make the other ones block it. could see some interesting ways to board wipe your opponent with a deathtouch creature. Maybe switch out Hornet Nest with Heir of the Wilds and put in roar for scourge since you are using roar to kill their creatures anyways. roar could also be used once scourge is pumped up for indestuctible trample have to block, letting all your other creatures hit for big.

I am also a huge fan of Bow of Nylea here. give the hornet nest counters (which poops on rabblemaster) Also provides a way to make Yasova Dragonclaw stronger, since she can only steal stuff that's weaker than her. The life gain is good against burn, and the 2 damage against flyers is never a bad thing to have.

Sideboard i would throw in Sagu Mauler or Hornet Queen for blue/black control which seems to be gaining popularity.they can't deal with it except a board wipe if you flash in surrak just before.

I've never been great at planning out sideboards, any recommendations? I'm thinking one slot should go to Bow of Nylea at least.

Alright, I adjusted the swapped cards in the mainboard/sideboard to show a more standard approach. The previous set up was primarily vrs aggro decks and decks that had a significant reliance on enchantments. This is more of a catch all with Abzan Advantage, Spear of Heliod, and Bow of Nylea on the side instead of the main.

I'm looking for a replacement for the set of Butcher Ghoul so I'll drop in Viscera Seer for the moment and see what people think.


Noted. Night's Whisper added. Bow of Nylea would be good, might drop RotA down to 3 to make room for one down the line.

I really really like this! Undying with Retribution of the Ancients is awesome.

Only things I might recommend would be Bow of Nylea so your opponent is either forced to block and lose a creature or take the damage, either way is a win win for you! Also Night's Whisper could replace your Sign in Blood, it's easier for you to cast in this deck and might help.

I agree that I should be running Skylasher in place of Raking Canopy. I'm running Nourish over Feed the Clan as I found having 4 power on board for Ferocious was really inconsistent and I may end up swapping out Bow of Nylea for something like an all-purpose Beast Within if it proves too slow.

Void Stalker over Spin into Myth (like Dark Confidant over Dark Tutelage).

Bow of Nylea combos well with Frontier Siege and Cytoplast Manipulator makes it stupid good.

Master Biomancer can beef up all those creatures. Renegade Doppelganger could copy those 2/2s and double those activated abilities. Archetype of Imagination in this deck? Yes, please.

Also Sensei's Divining Top and Future Sight.

Well the experiment is pretty much over. The main deck has actually won against my old standard UB deck that was competitive. It isn't the best deck in the world, but it plays pretty well and I like it. I really really really wish I could have made Chasm Skulker work, but alas I couldn't.

Adding the 3 Bow of Nylea seems to help quite a bit. It allows for me to spend some mana and get other guys quite a bit more powerful. All in all I like this deck and it is fun.
