I personally liked the original Nissa Revane a lot...and I think if WOTC kept her original character there could have been some very juicy and interesting writing and lots of room for character development.

I think the card design was only really made narrow because of Nissa's Chosen and she could have had a lot more potential to stay in elf tribal by having more mana acceleration oriented abilities or even regenerate/overrun/fight combinations in future/other elf centered cards

Ramos, Protector of Terisiare

Legendary Artifact Creature - Dragon God

Flying, Vigilance

Affinity for Artifacts

, : Exile target nonland permanent.

, : Gain control of target creature or Planeswalker. Untap it, it gains haste. Sacrifice it at the beginning of your next end step.

, : Target player gains 10 life. If target player was you, Ramos, Protector of Terisiare doesn't untap during your next untap step.


So while his Azorius ability straight up exiles practically anything, his Rakdos ability gives you control of it but puts it into their graveyard. Also, thanks to the wording you are able to activate him during an opponent's end step and you'll maintain control until your next end step. This means you can also gain control of a second permanent during your turn after Ramos untaps. That's the hidden trade-off.

As for the mono-green, I understand this is really more of a white or at least Selesnya ability, but I would bring up the fact green has a lot of solid life spells, such as Predator's Rapport , Feed the Clan and Nissa Revane . They do exist, they just aren't that common.

Make another creature on par with Worldspine Wurm .

I think adding a little lifegain can make most decks more resiliant overall. Perhaps adding Essence Warden and/or Nissa Revane ?

Neat idea! +1

I am wanting to build an Elf Tribal Oathbreaker deck. I plan on playing at least both of these Planeswalkers, but I am struggling to decide who should be the Oathbreaker and who sits in the 58+.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury


  • Her +1 dorks
  • -2 field control with stones and prisons / locks
  • -6 card advantage
  • 3x turns to ult


  • Slower to play
  • after a base is established, lack of value
  • drawing my library without mana to play is a bad idea

Nissa Revane


  • +1 gets me life
  • -7 maximizes board presence
  • Fast to play


  • 2
  • First +1 is moot after one turn
  • No protection
  • 5x turns to ult

Frey gets me dorks and has some control.

Nissa puts my life total out of my opponents reach and eventually lets me play my whole library at once for free.

Which do you feel is better, and why?
