Nissa, Vastwood Seer Discussion

Ehsteve on Lord Windgrace Sits Behind A Chasm

3 days ago

More thoughts:

Bedevil has been tested and I think it is a good replacement for Putrefy , or potentially working in tandem.

While on paper Deserted Temple seemed like a good addition for mana fixing, the only real synergy it has in the deck is untapping a Cabal Coffers with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Deserted Temple generally works a lot better when paired alongside lands like City of Traitors or Scorched Ruins but since this deck doesn't play either of those options it is a prime candidate for cutting. The most likely replacement is another basic Forest . Vesuva covers the same angle, but with far more flexibility.

Worm Harvest is another candidate for replacement. In a grand total of one game I have cast this spell, and the advantage is that it can be reused from the graveyard but unfortunately it is slow strategy (even for this deck) and is an inefficient way of getting land into the graveyard even if that becomes the main reason for using it in the first place.

More and more I find myself falling out of love with Wayward Swordtooth . Early game it provides some slight ramp, but ultimately a 5/5 that doesn't block effectively for Lord Windgrace until we get city's blessing is underwhelming. Especially in that critical 3-drop where we would otherwise want to cast an Azusa, Lost but Seeking for even more land drop potential (especially with Crucible of Worlds ) or Harrow for mana fixing.

I've also had a change of heart of Journey to Eternity  Flip. This has mainly become tech against sacrifice-based strategies such as Sheoldred, the Whispering One or any deck playing Grave Pact / Dictate of Erebos .

Another few additions to the maybe-board that I've seen played across a few other Lord Windgrace decks are:

The primary issue with Chandra, Torch of Defiance is that her uptick for quasi-card advantage can exile an essential land with no chance to bring it back, but she does represent another win condition with her ultimate (even if it is slow). If you are only using Chandra for her mana uptick, I think that it's a waste as a 4-mana ramp spell. Whereas Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip provices something the deck really likes doing: ramping or drawing cards. The downside of this Nissa is that her downtick is not fantastic, but I guess it provides a blocker to help protect her or Lord Windgrace . Further her ultimate (turning 6 lands into 6/6s) leaves lands vulnerable, but also represents a potential game-winning swing *(note that this does not give the lands haste so this has absolutely no synergy with anything that brings land back from the graveyard to the battlefield or making extra land drops as they would be subject to summoning sickness and would not even be able to tap for mana if you were planning of using it for Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire ).

For removals, other than what I mentioned in my first comment, I'd suggest taking out:

Ajani Goldmane, Rejected

Legendary Creature - Cat Warrior

Lifelink

At the beginning of each end step, if you gained 4 or more life this turn, exile Ajani, Rejected and return it to the battlefield transformed.

2/3


Ajani Renewed

() Legendary Planeswalker - Ajani

+2: Create two 1/1 white cat warrior creature tokens with lifelink.

-4: Destroy target creature with power 4 or greater or with toughness 4 or less.

-8: Double your life total, then create that many 1/1 white cat warrior creature tokens with lifelink.

4


So we already have flip-walker cards for Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip

I just made Ajani's pre-walker and flip-walker. Design another flip-walker.

Hey, looks good, but want more lands :) The format here is Standard, it should be Commander. You can change this where you edit the deck.

I suggest 40 lands. Budget lands to consider adding:

Glade, Thicket are Forest/Mountain dual lands this makes them very good, can be tutored for with the land ramp spells that can tutor for a Forest/Mountain dual land (Lore, Claim, etc.)

Other cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting, includes cuts to add more lands:

  • Garruk's Packleader
  • Ghirapur Orrery
  • Broken Bond
  • Aspect of Mongoose
  • Zendikar Resurgent
  • Domri Rade
  • Hull Breach
  • Archetype of Aggression
  • Seer's Sundial
  • Second Harvest
  • Where Ancients Tread
  • Into the Wilds
  • Swiftfoot Boots
  • Boundless Realms

Good luck with your deck.

Nice to see an update! I've been playing this deck a lot since building it and have been finding a lot of usage out of Selfless Spirit for extra board protection, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip for more draw/ramp, and Defense of the Heart, which is nuts with Emeria Shepherd if you can protect both of them. I think I'm going to give Green Sun's Zenith a try though since it looks super versatile. Curious as to why you went back to Kamahl, Fist of Krosa over Craterhoof Behemoth though?

meant to say: Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip is a worse Sylvan Ranger most of the time
