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.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer Discussion

Hey! Thanks for your input.
This is actually a French Duel Commander deck, and with 20 life most of those cards aren't as good in my opinion:
- Tireless Tracker is a very good card that I played for a while, but in a super-aggro meta it's removed very easily and does nothing before dying because you don't want to spend your mana on using your Clue tokens.
- I love Sylvan Library with 30 life, but with 20 life you almost never want to draw the extra cards, and the card doesn't accelerate your real strategy enough.
- Lotus Cobra as well stayed for a long time in this deck, and makes for very explosive turns, but it's a 2 CMC with 1 toughness, and it barely ever stayed long enough on the battlefield to work well.
- Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip is too slow as well, for 3 mana I expect at least the land to enter the battlefield right away. Reaching seven lands with it in play is hard too because she dies easily, and even then her planeswalker's abilities are underwhelming if you can't reach her ultimate (and with 20 life the game is over before).
- Oracle of Mul Daya also dies too easily for it's cost. The card advantage is sweet but does not win you the game, since you are supposed to win the turn you reach 6 mana on board.
- Crucible of Worlds really shines in some situations, but those are not frequent enough to justify it in my opinion. I prefer playing Ramunap Excavator even if it dies to more removal, because at least I can tutor for it when the situation is good for it's effect.
I did not play with Carpet of Flowers nor Choke, but with the last ban list update of French Duel Commander, blue is not played enough to warrant them.
Hall of Gemstone doesn't serve me that much, but it's fun to play in multiplayer games.
All these cards are really powerful and may become a consideration if the meta slows down or blue becomes relevant again, but for now I prefer playing cards that offer an immediate advantage.

Hey, nice description and mini primer, +1.
Not playing any card draw is interesting adding Tireless Tracker and Sylvan Library wouldn't hurt your overall strategy too much. Tracker can be pretty busted with all the extra lands that are entering play. Other suggestions of cards that interact with lands are Lotus Cobra, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Oracle of Mul Daya and Crucible of Worlds.

I've had really good experience with all 4 PW I run,
Nissa, Worldwaker is similar though its hard to get 4 forest sometimes may switch for Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip note though that her other +1 does not end at end of turn, so the land stays an elemental
Xenagos, the Reveler has been amazing he truly can produce ridiculous mana and can generate blockers before omnath is out like the other two
Koth of the Hammer is the most likely to get his ult off because his +1 is underwhelming and his -1 is situational, and the power of mountain ping is insane even with only 4-5

Well it is slower in a sense that I cant play Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Stone Rain or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar on turn 2. By turn 3, Search for Tomorrow is not enough to ramp for Primeval Titan or Ulvenwald Hydra without also playing dorks.. If I have to side in Volcanic Fallout and one more Bolt, I tend to take out the dorks for them.. I'm sorry but I dont see enough benefit from it.

Since I have already created threads that list commanders and planeswalkers by home plane, I shall now create a thread that lists legendary creatures who have appeared in core sets by home plane.
As with my previous lists, I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one legendary creature who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name, and then list each legendary creature from that plane who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name. If that creature is from a specific region of that plane or is a member of a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

What does everyone think of this list? Is it sufficiently informative? Have I improperly labeled any creatures? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Why do you use manadorks over land-ramp? If you played Search for Tomorrow instead of 4 of your 1 cmc manadorks, you could play Anger of the Gods to gain early game advantage against faster aggro-style decks. Would make it easier to trigger Scute Mob too. And with your all planeswalkers, clearing the table is actually a pretty good move, as you'd pretty easily draw ahead after both you and your opponent losing your creatures.
Besides, currently all that's needed to stop the christmasland-scenario from the deck description is to either not draw titan, or to have it Thoughtseized out of your hand. Also, inconsistency is a thing - you only play 2 titans and one Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, so the odds of them ever meeting are pretty slim.

I'm also a big fan of Nissa and I really like the Nissa theme you have here, it's creative and unique. +1
Changing to Nissa as your Commander would be better for the Nissa theme you have here, Planeswalkers and cards with Nissa in the name. Nissa as a Commander is great, in fact she's one of the better green Commanders in the Commander format. My suggestions are to use Nissa as Commander and focus on ramp, mana ramp with Elves and land ramp with Elves and spells. I suggest this because a lot of the Nissa Planeswalkers and Nissa named spells have high mana costs you'll need more than Elves to make enough mana to play these cards.
Unfortunately, due to the Commander color identify rules you can't play Nissa, Steward of Elements because it has a blue mana symbol in it's casting cost. You can only use cards of the same color who your Commander is.
If choosing to use Nissa as your Commander than here's some cards that have great synergy with her:
- Skyshroud Claim
- Nature's Lore
- Harvest Season
- Farhaven Elf
- Rampaging Baloths
- Tireless Tracker
- Courser of Kruphix
- Gaea's Touch
These cards I've suggested all care about lands because using Nissa as a Commander is about getting lands into play because you need seven lands to flip her into Sage Animist. Not sure if budget matters to you, but all my suggestions are budget other than Exploration and Tracker.
Good luck with your deck.
