Nissa, Worldwaker Discussion

What about a couple of Nissa, Worldwaker?

feyn_do_alduin on Omnath, Locus of Armageddon v2.3

So, I've been having some difficulties finding some of the cards in this list, so these are my preliminary subsitutions:

Subterranean Tremors -> Blasphemous Act

Tooth and Nail -> Defense of the Heart

Heroic Intervention -> Eldrazi Monument

Storm Cauldron ->

Mind's Eye -> Cream of the Crop

Nissa, Vital Force -> Nissa, Worldwaker

Wheel of Fortune -> Reforge the Soul

I'm also looking at a slot for Groundskeeper since it'l be our third method of mass land retrieval.

Good deck. CMC is at 2.92 which is really low so you can probably put some bigger creatures in to spend your mana, some 6 costs or something with an X cost. Also you can only have one planeswalker of the same name out at once so you can't have both Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Worldwaker out at the same time, just thought I'd throw that out there. Also feel free to rob some of the ideas from the mono green deck that is in the workings on my profile. Keep it up!

I'm a big fan of Green Ramp from Theros-Tarkir Standard. Not much experience with Modern, but I would take out Phytotitan, Engulfing Slagwurm, Managorger, and Hooded Hydra. Add in some Primeval Titan, maybe Terastodon to destroy their lands, maybe Gaea's Revenge for a hasty survivable threat, maybe 1 copy of Patron of the Orochi. 4 Genesis Wave might be fine honestly. Nissa, Worldwaker might also be good for the untapping.

Thank you for all of that, it's a lot to take in and digest but I like the suggestions and they'll definitely get some play.

A lot of the flier hate came from this starting as a counter to a friend's blue/green merfolk deck that spammed Cartouche of Knowledge and One With the Wind but it is limited in its use and I was considering replacing the reach critters and Stinging Shot as it were.

Nissa, Worldwaker was already on my radar and I'll probably be grabbing her shortly for playtesting. I've got Garruk Relentless  Flip in another deck but he'd be useful in here as well.

My main reason for running the Druid of the Cowl instead of Llanowar Elves is because the extra one cost isn't too much considering all the mana this generates as it is, and they make a decent defense as well. My earlier build of this did have Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic but they kept getting wiped out by small stuff and my mana went with them.

I do like your suggestions for the bigger creatures though and I'm definitely looking at upping my Ivy Elemental and adding in Mistcutter Hydra for the mana pump aspect. I'll be posting a revised version of this deck later on once I've properly given your suggestions and a couple other ideas I've been kicking around a good thorough testing. I appreciate the input, thank you :)

If you're prepared to put a little bit of money into it, here are my suggestions that stick to your theme

-4 Druid of the Cowl

-2 Thornweald Archer

-1 Karametra's Acolyte

-1 Heroes' Bane

+4 Elvish Mystic

+4 Llanowar ElvesIf you go red, replace one of those 2 groups with 4 Burning-Tree Emissary Black, 4 Elves of Deep Shadow

Waker of the Wilds looks fun as heck.

Genesis Hydra, Mistcutter Hydra, terastadon, Verdant Force, Void Winnower, and Terra Stomper are all pretty good budget big mana pay-offs.

I would remove the enchantments for 4 Harmonize. If you're dead set on running effects like Overgrowth, Arbor Elf is the kind of creature you want to be running. You don't need the Fog effects since you should be the one on the attack, but if you're running them for the hexproof, consider Blossoming Defense instead. I would go 4 Rampant Growth and 4 Search for Tomorrow in your sorceries.

Nissa, Nature's Artisan is respectable, but I'd suggest Nissa, Worldwaker or Garruk Relentless  Flip instead. I wouldn't run your enchantment or flier hate in the mainboard, instead fill it with the planeswalkers above, or more creatures like Elvish Visionary.

One thing you really have to be aware of in Legacy is that the three most popular board wipes (to my knowledge) are; Terminus, Toxic Deluge, and Supreme Verdict. There's not a whole lot you can do against the first two, but have a couple Heroic Intervention in your sideboard could be important. I would also run a couple Life Goes On or Feed the Clan in the sideboard as well to go against more aggro opponents.

Some fun spells to consider are Verdant Confluence, Primal Command, and Helix Pinnacle.

I'm not really a green player, but I hope this was a little helpful

Emzed your advice has been taken! I really appreciate your help. I didnt know if the bar was actually of any value at all which is why I actually mentioned it in the first place, but Ill just ignore it. The reason Garruk Wildspeaker was in the Maybeboard is because I saw that Nissa, Worldwaker has the same plus one ability but it untaps up to 4 instead of 2. Looking at the mana cost I can visualize and see why I would rather want Garruk because of his lower mana cost. As for Tamiyo, shes out.

That's a good idea I'd say in terms of keeping the white in the sideboard to make the deck a bit more consistent. If you are going to try out the big mama route: I'd recommend checking this deck out for more of a clearer picture:

This deck uses Kiora, Master of the Depths in conjunction with Garruk Wildspeaker as well as Utopia Sprawl & Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to heavily ramp into cards like Genesis Wave. U/G Gensis Wave tends to fundamentally ramp through the use of devotion and planeswalkers to make Nykthos a broken card. I don't know how devotional you want to go or even how realistic it is to run Nykthos in your deck. However, if you can make it work, you can basically ramp faster than any deck that isn't running the Devoted Druid / Vizier of Remedies infinite mana combo.

I didn't mention Kiora, Master of the Depths earlier because I personally find it to be a weaker choice for ramping than that of Nissa, Worldwaker. Although for your deck Kiora might even be better cause you can use her minus ability to Traverse the Ulvenwald for Biovisionary (or a copy) or a key land you might need.
