Nissa Revane Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Which of these two is ...

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?

I was pondering this the other day, with Morophon, the Boundless coming out I thought why not? They show up in all 5 colors, every tribal buff can be relevant if you are using changelings, plus some of them are just plain cute.

In the same vein as your Dragon Tempest you should look at Sarkhan Unbroken . His ult would be super beneficial... same with the original Nissa Revane ult. And if you like the not dragon but they are dragons theme you could also run the partners Khorvath Brightflame and Sylvia Brightspear

Lords that offer more than +1/+1 like Sliver Hivelord , Knight Exemplar or Aryel, Knight of Windgrace are good choice but obviously you don't want too many clogging up your creature base.

The you have your usual suspects Obelisk of Urd , Herald's Horn , Shared Animosity and the like.

Im not sure how to build it just yet but I feel like it could be a lot of fun.

Nice idea lol add this if ur up to it. This is what I use with mine. Nissa Revane is a good card for elves and the newer sets have better ones to.

I like this, seems very nasty but like a very fun deck to play. May be a bit confused but Nissa Revane slots right in here and gets your Archdruid and any other elves you might need. Also I think Hour of Promise or the likes of other cards that search for lands other than basic will greatly assist you in getting your big mana out onto the board. Great deck though, happy brewing!

Savra, Queen of the Golgari - Commander of the first EDH deck I built from scratch, which is still a formidable attrition style deck. Runs a convoluted, but very resilient, infinite combo as an emergency finisher.

Toshiro Umezawa - Commander of my highest-rated deck here on EDH, I've put a lot of time into making his list run smoothly and the primer I have here is the result.

Neheb, the Eternal - Commander of my most fun deck. He makes so much mana, and can have unbelievably explosive games, finishing people off with almost nothing in play. My favorite moment with this deck was killing a player from 40 with the exert trigger of a Glorybringer .

Moonlight Bargain - Such an amazing card, so underrated. Until it's recent release in a commander product, I'd never seen it played by anyone else.

Nissa Revane - The first planeswalker I pulled from a pack, and still my favorite planeswalker. Is she good? No. Do I care? No.

The Great Aurora - Why does no one run a mono-green board wipe? This thing is fantastic. Ramp a bunch, float some mana, cast this, then rebuild your board before anyone else gets a chance.

Archangel of Thune - Gotta represent my love of angels somehow, and this card is just a friggin' beast, easily one of my favorite cards. It's got it all - excellent art, good flavor text, and a game-ending ability. I've got a sweet stained-glass alter of one that looks absolutely amazing.

Permeating Mass - It's my dream to one day build a Permeating mass first strike deck, with the goal being creating a field of as many permeating masses as possible. Someday.

Icbrgr on The Gatewatch Problem

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 clich├ęs.... 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 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.
