Nissa's Chosen Discussion

Pieguy396 on Nissa Revane or Nissa Genesis ...

That's true, but untapping a couple things isn't worth 7 mana. Quite frankly, gaining a couple life isn't really worth 4 mana either, so unless you decide to run Nissa's Chosen, it might be best to run neither.

That's fair. I'd mainly have Genesis Mage in there for the + ability. Untapping land and creatures gets pretty crazy, and while her ultimate isn't nearly as good as Revane's,it is a pseudo- Genesis Wave, which is nothing to sneeze at. She's a 7 drop, so Revane will come out earlier, but she only has 2 abilities barring the Nissa's Chosen grab, which I don't run. I do like Revane better for her life gain and ulti. I guess the main tradeoff is between life gain for 4 mana and untaps or a buff for 3 more, since it's not likely that either will see their ulti go off unless they're protected.

You have Nissa Revane and not Nissa's Chosen? You should have 4 of him if you have Nissa Revane. Here is another dump of cards that are cool too. Necromaster Dragon, Taigam, Ojutai Master, Catacomb Dragon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Siege Dragon, Rith, the Awakener, Crosis, the Purger, Utvara Hellkite (He is one of my favorites!), Mana-Charged Dragon, Vampiric Dragon, Death by Dragons, Dragonmaster Outcast, Knight of New Alara, Conflux, Kilnmouth Dragon (Drop him first and then you have never ending burn spells), Two-Headed Dragon, Flameblast Dragon. I have time on the bus ride home by the way. lol

Rhys the Exiled isn't really worth it unless you can regenerate him. You might want to throw in a handful of Llanowar Wastes, Gilt-Leaf Palace or Woodland Cemetery so you at least have the option to! I probably wouldn't run a full set of him, either - you don't want to see three of him in your opening hand, do ya?

Also, I'm curious why you aren't running Nissa's Chosen! It's not a gamebreaker, but it's definitely the better of Nissa's +1 abilities - getting a 2/3 is much more impressive than the usual token you'd get from a planeswalker, especially since he'll likely be bigger from one of your twelve lords. Not only that, but they're good for sacrificing to Rhys since they can just be tutored out again.

Bramblewood Paragon might also come in handy (you're a little short on 2-drops) since she's a pseudo-lord and pairs well with Joraga Warcaller. Luminescent Rain isn't bad, but you'll probably get more life (and use) out of Wellwisher or Essence Warden instead.

Hope it helps make your deck a little nastier!

With the sorceries and Khalni Heart Expedition you have here you already have a bit of ramp so you would probably be fine cutting some Llanowar Elves or a copy or two of the expedition. Cutting Fog could also work like Jerry said. If you can find room since you're playing two Nissa Revanes I would play a full set of Nissa's Chosen.

It's not amazing, but I would regard as a pretty strict improvement to your deck at the moment, over your Nissa Revane and Nissa's Chosen, Immaculate Magistrate, Rhonas's Monument, 3-5 forests, and Primal Command, in that order from bad to less bad. Jagged-Scar Archers is also dubious. All of those are pretty clear stinkers that you could cut for a lot of things that would improve the deck, including Sylvan Messenger. You have 17-22 pretty easy cuts to make, which puts you in a position such to be creative.

For 4 mana, Sylvan Messenger doesn't have too dramatic an immediate impact, and can whiff pretty hard. Sometimes you'll spend 4 mana for a 2/2 elf, with no added benefit apart from getting 4 nonelfs off the top of your library. That hurts, and will happen ~6% of the time; when that happens, you probably lose the game. The typical outcome of getting 2 elves is not too bad, though, making it roughly playable.

Okay, let me premise this with, I've not played a ton of elves decks outside of casual settings, so I may not actually know what I'm doing. Having said that, perhaps you could use something like Nissa Revane for some extra life or elves, though Nissa's Chosen probably isn't the best card for modern play. Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen or Immaculate Magistrate could also work.
