When New Perspectives enters the battlefield, draw three cards.
As long as you have seven or more cards in hand, you may pay 0 rather than paying cycling costs.

New Perspectives Discussion

To be honest, I have done little testing besides goldfishing, but this is mainly a goldfish deck so I guess it's fine.
Looking at Amonkhet, I believe Natural State is going to get replaced by Dissenter's Deliverance and By Force in most sideboards. Dissenter's Deliverance is just better in most cases, as there are only a couple enchantments worth hitting in standard right now, especially with Stasis Snare being replaced by Cast Out.
In addition, many are already maindecking Manglehorn since it deals with both Mardu and Saheeli.
Returning to Weirding Wood, the main problem is that you need a 5th land to play New Perspectives. Plus, that land needs to enter untapped. This is partially fixed by playing more basics, which works well with Shefet Monitor.
I think that, even with the necessity for a 5th land, Weirding Wood is better because of all the artifact hate that all decks run now.

Hey! This is a super cool idea. Nissa seems to be pretty ramp focused. You want to be able to quickly get her to a reasonably high loyalty and then just start spewing out creatures, and Kiora can do something similar though less powerful. I would also then use more creatures, since you have Vizier of the Menagerie, Nissa, Steward of Elements and Kiora, Master of the Depths who are all creature focused.
I would suggest taking out Rashmi, Eternities Crafter because she is slow to come out, and has a small body. Similarly I think Kefnet the Mindful is much better suited for a pass-go style control deck. I would also remove the cartouche and trials you have, because they are not very powerful effects. Also New Perspectives could come out. In these slots you could add in creatures that are more suited for Nissa, Vizier and Kiora.
I would suggest adding in a Manglehorn or two, it has proved very effective. I think Prowling Serpopard is good but can be moved to the sideboard. I think then the best way to go for the rest of the deck is an energy theme, turning the deck into a ramp midrange/control. So I think Attune with Aether would be a great include, as well as Servant of the Conduit. This will allow you to keep a relatively low amount of lands, probably 22, while still paying high Mana costs easily. For creatures I would use Bristling Hydra, Rogue Refiner and possibly Longtusk Cub. Then you could also add in a few Tireless Trackers and maybe even Glimmer of Genius and replace Cancel with Disallow. This would add enough instants/sorceries for even a couple Torrential Gearhulk. There is also a great argument for including a couple Heart of Kiran because you will have Planeswalkers and creatures able to crew it, and it also turns on Rhonas the Indomitable. You will also have a few creatures that are big enough for Rhonas on their own, and others that can grow fairly quickly.
I think you can also cut down on your big, expensive flying creatures, and just keep a couple, as well as possibly cutting a Kiora and increasing your number of Nissa, Steward of Elements since she is a very flexible card with X in her Mana cost. Finally I would also cut one Vizier of the Menagerie.
Sorry, that was a lot! I just saw your list and was inspired! I love creative ideas like this one!

Well I was going to try now building a cycling version of the deck, although i'm really not sure what colours.
I know blue for New Perspectives and White for Approach of the Second Sun clearly, but should I also go green for Shefet Monitor or just Black for Shadow of the Grave? If you happen to come across any such decklists I would like to see what others have done if you come across any it would be appreciated if you share them Zaueski.
Either way i'm going to start with trying such a deck as esper.

Well thanks for taking a look though anyways Zaueski. I'm sure I can figure something out with this, I think I will make a secondary version of this but rather all around cycling and give New Perspectives a try.

Okay, so the description sums it up but the key is to use Hedron Archive, Vizier of Tumbling Sands, and Shefet Monitor to play a turn 5 New Perspectives. Then you can cycle through your deck at will (for free) and gain mana as you go using Vizier of Tumbling Sands and Shefet Monitor. Haze of Pollen can be used to help you survive until you combo off. Does that help?

I may be missing something, but I don't get how this deck works. How could you win on turn 4-5 when New Perspectives cost 6 mana? If it isn't neccesary for the deck to work, why run 4 copies then? How do you do to survive until you get all the pieces of the puzzle? How you get to cast anything in time when 16 of your lands come into play tapped?
Those are sincere questions. Again, maybe I can't get the genius idea. Please guide me through your deck.
