Nikya of the Old Ways Discussion

By the time you can cast Zendikar Resurgent you can already cast everything in your deck except those sorceries. Zo-Zu the Punisher or Immolation Shaman maybe. I am personally not big on Planeswalkers and have an ancient grudge vs Blood Moon but that's just me.

What I do like is having something more to spend huge amounts of mana on. I have a Nikya of the Old Ways deck with a bunch of things that might fit here. La Femme Nikya. My decks are all pretty casual though because of my usual meta.

As far as my research shows, no such card exists, sorry! :( (I'd be interested to hear what kind of decks your opponents are playing to have so few instants/sorceries, though. Nikya of the Old Ways?

Considering has not only a lack of spell-slinger commanders, but Nikya of the Old Ways and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, which actively counter that strategy, I think it's the least likely to have that idea represented.


Referenced on Gruul Locket:

Gna, Spell Brute

Creature - Ogre Shaman

Whenever a creature you countrol becomes the target of an instant or sorcery, it gets a +1/+1 counter and fights target creature you don't control.

Whenever a creature dies as a result of fighting, target creature gets X +1/+1 counters, where X is the creature's toughness.

2/2


It's kinda a fighting commander more than anything else.

I'd like to see a Hate-based Rakdos commander. Dragonlord Kolaghan, Kaervek the Merciless , and Tsabo Tavoc are probably the closest, but don't really hate on a particular mechanic/strategy/effect, etc.

I think I've been Ninja'd, if so, see above.

So here are the suggestions thus far:

From yourself, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Atla Palani, Nest Tender, and Nikya of the Old Ways.

dbpunk suggested Xenagos, God of Revels (with another vote from triproberts12.

seshiro_of_the_orochi suggested Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma.

Vimozahr flew in with a host of suggestions: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, one or more Naya Dino Commanders, The Ur-Dragon, the C13 Naya Commanders (Mayael the Anima, Gahiji, Honored One, and Marath, Will of the Wild), any number of colorless Eldrazi commanders, and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed.

I suggested Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Kestia, the Cultivator, Tana, the Bloodsower with either Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, or Otrimi, the Ever-Playful.

Brutal_B suggested Kruphix, God of Horizons.

And, finally, GoblinElectromancer swoops in with Ezuri, Renegade Leader.


Not posting to provide opinions, this is just the ones in consideration.

Hello everyone, a friend of mine decided to give mtg a try and since in our playgroup we basically play only commander he asked me some suggestions for his deck. He likes big creatures and a straightforward strategy. The deck also has to be a on a budget since he would like to improve it gradually. My first suggestions were Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Atla Palani, Nest Tender and Nikya of the Old Ways.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Nikya of the Old Ways could be perfect.

Oh man, I didn't expect that to be a real edit you made. I think it'll work great! Now that you did it:

Easy replacements for Nature's Claim are Knight of Autumn and Reclamation Sage, so those might be a good include. Any replacement for Beast Within will obviously be much worse, but Meteor Golem and Mold Shambler are what I can think of off the top of my head. And I honestly can't think of anything to replace Natural Order or Tooth and Nail.

Other things: You're running 16 noncreature spells. Nikya of the Old Ways might limit you a bit, but I think it has enormous potential and might be worth a look.

I've also found that Captain Sisay is busted in this kind of deck if you have $15 that you're willing to spend.

I still love the deck!
