Nissa, Vastwood Seer

Legendary Creature — Elf Scout

When Nissa, Vastwood Seer enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic Forest card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, if you control seven or more lands, exile Nissa, then return her to the battlefield transformed under her owner's control.

First thing I suggest is Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. You have a LOT of creatures, and I like that you're running the whole host of mana-dorks. Rites lets you get even more mana, and serves as an affordable Gaea's Cradle .

I don't think Sapseep Forest is better than a simple basic. Coming in tapped is a big drawback, and 1 life is rarely very relevant in EDH. To a lesser extent, you may find Mistveil Plains to be worse than a basic as well. Mistveil is typically limited to Captain Sisay or other tutor-on-a-stick decks as a means of recursion, but in this deck it seems it won't give you enough bang for your buck. Perhaps you might consider running Drownyard Temple instead? It works well with your Dust Bowl and gives you a good outlet for excess mana.

I see Knight of Autumn is in your 'Maybeboard.' I recommend playing this card. You should generally have access to white mana, so it serves as a better Reclamation Sage .

I recommend running Green Sun's Zenith in conjunction with Dryad Arbor . The arbor on its own isn't very good -- it is effected by summoning sickness and feels bad to play as a land for turn. But Green Sun's for 0 on turn one is excellent. Additionally, later in the game Green Sun's can act as a tutor for your Reclamation Sage or Knight of Autumn to deal with a pesky artifact or enchantment.

Green-White has access to a lot of nice hatebears. I suggest Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , though that one may be a little pricey. Vryn Wingmare and Glowrider are far more affordable and only a little worse. You have a LOT of mana, so taxing non-creature spells isn't too bad for you. Also, your general is a creature on the stack, so it's not an issue with casting her. Aven Mindcensor also comes to mind, but it depends on how search-heavy your meta is.

For planeswalkers, Nissa, Vital Force is a good choice in landfall decks. Being able to cantrip lands is... good. Similarly, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip is powerful in decks with a high concentration of lands, though I recommend Vital Force much more.

For finishers, you might consider Overrun or Craterhoof Behemoth . They make your dorks into fatties, and let you swing in hard. Craterhoof is expensive these days, but pairing him with Natural Order is a Legacy Elves play that works great in EDH too. Triumph of the Hordes is another candidate for the finisher slot.

Swords to Plowshares is one of the only 1-1s I recommend in EDH. Because it is so efficient, I think it can be played even in a format typically played with 3 opponents. I do NOT recommend Path to Exile , as ramping an opponent is especially dangerous in EDH.

Card draw is always important in EDH. Because you're running so many creatures, Grim Flowering or Nature's Resurgence seem powerful inclusions, similar to the Shamanic Revelation you already run. After a board wipe, they may well draw you 7+ cards. Also, Slate of Ancestry is a boss.

Good luck with deck building!

One thing to note: see how as we add more cards a mana curve naturally starts to form? That happens just about every deck. I try to maintain the curve that forms unless I have a reason to adjust it. So we'll be cutting cards that disrupt the curve. For example, at this moment we would want to cut cards that cost 6 cmc. But we're not done.

Hey, looks good, nice start. Creative intro deck description :) Do you have the cards in the maybeboard? There's some cards there especially lands that are better than main deck cards.

I think you're better off playing more basic Forests in place of ETB tapped lands such as Jungle Hollow, Kazandu Refuge, Akoum Refuge, etc. even the Bounce lands even though they have interaction with landfall. Consider more/upgraded land ramp? It helps with more Forests. Windgrace as Commander can benefit from a lot of land ramp because you need lands to fuel his abilities. More land ramp also helps to power landfall creatures.

Land ramp to consider adding:

Farseek, Lore, Skyshroud is dual land ramp.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Charnelhoard Wurm
  • Garna, the Bloodflame
  • Rubblehulk
  • Whiptongue Hydra
  • Hunting Wilds

Other semi-budget cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Lavalanche
  • Ruinous Path
  • Savage Twister
  • Seek the Horizon
  • Stitch Together
  • Consign to Dust
  • Seer's Sundial
  • The Mending of Dominaria
  • Khalni Heart Expedition
  • Acidic Slime
  • Centaur Vinecrasher
  • Worm Harvest
  • Gaze of Granite

darkone8 thanks for your comment!

As far as budget goes, having almost all the cards passed down from 2 generations to me made my life a bit easier for those big boi cards, and newer cards are still being printed so thats nice!

Samut, the Tested is a card everyone really ignored, I liked it a lot and started using her now people at my lgs who build superfriends now see her as a must. To further convince you about her hidden talents Ill debunk her abilities: I completely understand that she seems unviable especially underwhelming with her +1, however, that's not why shes here! Her -2 can kill both your Arena Rector and Academy Rector immediately! Grabbing you an extra planeswalker or your Omniscience / Doubling Season

Alternatively her -7, grabs you 2 more planeswalkers from your deck, and places them directly into play! Usually you have Doubling Season in play when you ult her, so why not ult 2 more planeswalkers while you're at it!

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip was actually in this deck before, the problem is, her flip isn't very powerful. You barely want to ult her, same with Party Jace, and a couple other planeswalkers that are there for there + and - abilities. I wanna ult these bois!

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker will be added though! Unfortunately it's not in my collection just yet, but once it is I will include him. The question is who to take out?

Noting how you don't seem to be running on any sort of a budget, I'm just going to throw out a couple of the other planeswalkers to replace a few of the ones you have that aren't that good (Like Samut, the Tested , who isn't effective since your deck doesn't have much to do with creatures). My personal suggestions would be to play some planeswalkers that have +1/+1 counter abilities, like some of the Ajanis do help boost Ramos's ability. Also, I would play some of the flip planeswalkers (like Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip) and I would personally play Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker because of the control options it offers.

Kulrath Knight and Everlasting Torment can't be run in here because they have a rakdos color identity

Would recommend a few land dorks to recur to get you to midgame quicker. Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves and Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip get a lot of traction in every meren variant.

otherwise a fun build :P

Are you sure? Between the Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl combo, with Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Marwyn, the Nurturer . Also I've been thinking about replacing Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip with some 1 cmc mana dorks, as I don't see the deck hitting 7 lands that easily.
