Nissa, Steward of Elements

Planeswalker — Nissa

+2: Scry 2.

0: Look at the top card of your library. I fit's a land card or a creature card with converted mana cost less than or equal to the number of loyalty counters on Nissa, Steward of Elements, you may put that card onto the battlefield.

-6: Untap up to two target lands you control. They become 5/5 Elemental creatures with flying and haste until end of turn. They're still lands.

Nissa, Steward of Elements Discussion

@cafiasco - I decided to to take your advice. I removed x1 Champion of Rhonas and I also removed x1 Nissa, Steward of Elements, which brought the deck to a firm 60; the deck was at 62. I will be taking this deck to next week's FNM and will update with the results.

Archfiend of Ifnir comes to late, since it's to expensive.Either you get full into cycling or discard and play red black burn with Soul-Scar Mage or just forget it.

You can put maybe two Nissa, Steward of Elements in, for more draw.

Against artifacts try Appetite for the Unnatural maybe.

Put definitely 4 Hapatras in.

Get rid of Lay Bare the Heart. Doesn't do very much against the current meta.

Wolfninja on Want: 2x Nissa, Steward of ...

Just updated my binder for the first time in a while (that's an understatement). Really looking for 2x Nissa, Steward of Elements and no one around me has any.

My two other main wants at this point are 1x As Foretold and 1x Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix. There's also some other lesser wants in my binder.

Nissa, Steward of Elements makes this an illegal deck for EDH. All cards must match your Commander's color identity (in this case, Red/White/Green).

Other than that, you are going to want to find cards that give your creatures Trample, a la Nylea, God of the Hunt or even Overwhelming Stampede so you can more reliably get through to your opponents' life totals.

Legion's Initiative is also a great card for not only buffing your creatures, but also protecting your creatures from board wipes.

I also cannot help but notice that you are running a lot more lands than you probably need, as 36-38 is generally plenty. And given that you are running a lot of high CMC creatures, you could definitely use some more ramp cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Farseek, Birds of Paradise, and Sylvan Caryatid.

Your lack of disturbs me. Sorin, Grim Nemesis and Ob Nixilis Reignited are very good; being able to impact the board as soon as they drop. My issue with Nissa, Steward of Elements is that, other than playing her huge for the big beats, she does literally nothing. Another suggestion would be Oath of Liliana. This oath ends up generating SOOO many Zombie tokens from just playing your walkers and offers a nice T3 tempo play.

I would echo what mack10k said about going down some Chandra, Flamecaller, but also note that this card is just great against the Zombie decks. Combine Chandra, Flamecaller with adult nissa (Nissa, Vital Force) and you can repeatedly wrath tokens and zombies into oblivion. Maybe 2 main, 1 side. Also, I agree that Oath of Gideon seems not that great. Planeswalkers have the inevitability of winning and I cant see the extra 1 loyalty being that important. Plus the 1/1 tokens are pretty meh.

Up the removal factor (Declaration in Stone, Radiant Flames), go to 20 walkers and keep Deploy the Gatewatch cause it's so fun ;)

My other suggestions are all here: Five Color Superfriends

I run something similar to this deck, I don't run Oath of Gideon and now I run 2 x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger to hit with Nissa, Steward of Elements and all the mana I flood out with Bounty of the Luxa. I also like the idea mack10k of more Declaration in Stones as this provides a very strong counter to being out gunned vs. the Mono Zombies. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger also hits Liliana's Mastery as well as Aetherworks Marvel, so there is a some pretty good value in playing it as well. Just some thoughts.

Oh I also have 2 x Nissa, Vital Force for those +1 beats.

Oh sorry for the late reply, what you described anyways sounds like a pretty awesome prerelease when you had those Cut / Ribbons for two headed giant and all.

I'm actually playing in the Amonkhet league event at my lgs, and currently I have a deck with a Glorybringer of my own, along with a Rhonas the Indomitable which were both in my starting packs. Its pretty powerful.

I however have postponed finishing my modern infect deck, and i'm now working on mono tron which is a lot cheaper to build. I still will get around to finishing infect at a later point. I had a Nissa, Steward of Elements which I was going to try in infect, but now I think I'm going to be trading it along with some cash towards a Diabolic Intent invocation. I regret parting with all my former expeditions, masterpieces etc, which included: Windswept Heath, Prairie Stream, Fetid Heath, and Sword of Feast and Famine. I think now I'm going to start holding onto these masterpeices (at least the lower end ones) to build my collection further. Many are very playable in edh which I love to play anyways.

I was getting tons of things to build mono tron in return for buying 2 Chalice of the Voids and trading a friend an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. I also will be receiving other goodies from him like a Sliver Queen and Sliver Legion for my Sliver Overlord edh deck.

Sliver Overlord EDH

Commander / EDH* Delta-117


To buy these chalices however I sold off 3/4 of my Liliana, the Last Hopes, my Grim Flayers, Traverse the Ulvenwalds and a few other things to instead build counters around Winding Constrictor, Walking Ballista etc, and its now in fact almost done. However not in time for game day sadly, so I will have to make do with some substitute cards.

Here is my new modern deck anyways,

Mono Blue Tron

Modern* Delta-117


. I'm not too sure if your familiar with this lesser used variant of tron, but its one that seeks to play a much more controlling game. All I need for it is my Academy Ruins + Mindslaver (which is one of the ways to win with this), a Oblivion Stone, 2 Thirst for Knowledge and 2 Condescend, all of which I'm buying from the credit from my former delirium deck. Then its finished, but if you have any feedback for it possibly then that would be appreciated. I'm going to play this for a good while before either finishing infect or building something else like affinity which I might as well considering I do have a playset of Inkmoth Nexuss' sitting around now.

I know the sideboard needs a ton of work to reflect my local meta better, which includes Living End, merfolk, tron, eldrazi tron, knightfall, among a few others.

Oath of Chandra is a must for any PW with red. Also I would only run 2x Chandra, Flamecaller, and put in 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance. Also with all the Zombie decks running around now I would also play 4x Declaration in Stone. And Heart of Kiran x4. Take out the Oath of Gideon and (I know you won't like this) Deploy the Gatewatch. Nissa, Steward of Elements feels bad without creatures. I would also run 2 Sweltering Suns over Haze of Pollen.
