Nissa Revane Discussion
1 day ago
Nissa Revane was interesting with the elvish superiority complex prior to the retconned version of Nissa we have now.... sure even then she wasnt exactly a ground breaking character but if they kept that lore/personality there would have been more room for her to have a lot more growth and depth overall as a character with more interesting interactions.
Overall i have no counter arguments for the gatewatch characters not being overdone clichés.... which isnt exactly a bad thing given how these characters are essentially color pie type casting.....but cool story wrighting and character development always makes things nice.... like the Original Story for Innistrad and Sorin creating Avacyn to keep order over the plane and such... it was just sooooo cool.... and then somehow the eldrazi came into play meshing plot lines and.... idk... emrakul was imprisoned in the moon...it got weird.
Liliana Vess IMO has always been the most interesting character we have in the All-Star Cast having the most potential for being a stand alone with her plot line revolving around her demon pact slaying tales.

Create a profession-based tribal planeswalker. Huatli, Dinosaur Knight, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Liliana, Untouched By Death, Nissa Revane, Sarkhan, Fireblood, and Sarkhan Unbroken. I like the idea, but feel like profession-based planeswalkers are lacking.

Bramblewood Paragon is such a sweet card - I, too, tried building an Elf Warrior Tribal - so far in the testing I've done I've found it to be too slow compared with other decks that offer similar aggro spells. Of course, I haven't completely given up hope that an Elf Warrior tribal build could be built that would make spells like the Paragon really shine.
One thing I noticed is that because it's an Elf build, there's this idea in the back of my mind that there will be plenty of mana. But there aren't any Elf Warrior mana dorks, so even a scary slew of 2CMC creatures doesn't really churn them out as fast as one might hope. To that end, I think taking up 4x slots for a 1CMC dork is probably worth the cost of bending the tribal theme. Rishkar, Peema Renegade also comes to mind as a potentially powerful and worthwhile 1-2x dork option.
Inspiring Call might be worth considering, too.

Nissa Revane may see play in Canadian Highlander Elves. I don't think it has been good for a while but....

- Nissa Revane has no place in elves.
- BBE is not good in elves - the cascade hits in elves are mostly abyssmal and even when they are not, the BBE 3/2 body with haste is not what elves want.
- Black is the go-to splash for elves for reach with Shaman of the Pack. White is OK, since you can play Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies Combo and gives you better SB.

@6ixer I hear ya, the Nissa Revane and Nissa's Chosen package isn't exactly cut-throat competitive but they are a long shot from being Bad in a dedicated Elf deck. Personally I really enjoy running this decklist and am a fan of Nissa and her chosen. She poops out elves and gains life and frankly sometimes a 2/3 elf with some Lord's in play is all you need to smash the opponent.

The most "common" sideboard tech is to take out the Nissa-package(Nissa Revane and her Chosens) for the sideboard cards which works best in the matchup. Sometimes the Beastmaster Ascension. Did you know Beastmaster Ascension is a great tech against Ensnaring Bridge? My son found out while playing against Lantern Control. But he wasn't patient enough, and left the opponent on one life. But love the tech, hitting with 5/6 Plant and Eldrazi Scion tokens!
