Nissa's Pilgrimage Discussion
1 week ago
Great, I have built it and it's lots of fun. I made some changes based on my matches.
Krosan Verge - put Mutavault instead.
Helm of Kaldra
Mask of Avacyn
Sword of Kaldra
Masterwork of Ingenuity - I don't have it, will buy.
Asceticism - I don't have it and put Privileged Position instead.
Leonin Abunas - Privileged Position can protect kitties' toys.
Prowling Serpopard - I haven't seen someone counter kitties, so I put other things.
Raksha Golden Cub - Too big, I put Taj-Nar Swordsmith instead.
Steppe Lynx - I prefer Loam Lion, Steppe Lynx needs landfall.
Hunting Cheetah - I don't have it, will buy.
Teferi's Protection - I don't have it, will buy.

Hey, this is a good start, but consider more cards that interact with lands? When your Commander is seven mana, ramp is pretty important. With Omnath you don't really need lots of other big creatures because he's the big creature who's conveniently in the Command Zone and he creates other big creatures with lands. Instead of lots of other big creatures play cards that help you get Omnath onto the battlefield faster, draw cards, get lands, interact with lands or are good when he's in play. All my suggestions to consider are $2 or less.
Cards to consider adding:
- Perilous Forays: can be a repeatable landfall/3 damage to opponents engine with Omnath. Sac an Elemental to do 3 damage to opponent, then put a Basic land onto the battlefield and create another Elemental. Forays is amazing draw with Horn of Greed and Elemental Bond with Omnath.
- Horn of Greed: good draw when you're putting a lot more lands onto the battlefield per turn than your opponents.
- Elemental Bond: draw when Elementals are created or whenever another 3+ power creature ETB.
- Nissa, Vital Force: If you have her, move her from the sideboard to the main deck.
- Kodama's Reach
- Nissa's Pilgrimage
- Skyshroud Claim: can tutor for and put into play two of Sheltered Thicket or Forests.
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Wood Elves: can tutor for and put into play Sheltered Thicket or Forest.
- Skyshroud Ranger: put a land in your hand onto the battlefield.
- Walking Atlas
- Llanowar Scout
- Dryad Greenseeker
- Rampaging Baloths
- Greenwarden of Murasa
- Beast Within
- Chaos Warp
- Comet Storm
Consider more lands:
Cards to consider cutting:
- Archetype of Endurance
- Kamahl, Pit Fighter
- Maze Rusher
- Pelakka Wurm
- Wort, the Raidmother
- Savageborn Hydra
- Hungering Hydra
- Apocalypse Hydra
- Rubblebelt Raiders
- Zendikar Incarnate
- Zurgo Bellstriker
- Zhur-Taa Ancient
- Leafcrown Dryad
- Lightning Bolt
- Slice in Twain
- Lurking Predators
- Zendikar Resurgent
- Grow from the Ashes
- Seek the Horizon
Good luck with your deck.

Nissa's Pilgrimage... conditional ramp 2-3.

In mono-green, Nissa's Pilgrimage is strictly better than Cultivate and Kodama's Reach. Also, how well does Kalonian Hydra do for you, especially since it doesn't get the Goreclaw discount?

My Goreclaw deck has become one of my favorites. Swinging with fatties is such a simple, yet fulfilling joy. I have a few questions and suggestions.
- I also want to know if Caller of the Pack works out. Seems pretty killer!
- I've been on the fence about Bow of Nylea. Any thoughts on that one?
- Same with Shamanic Revelation. How often does it draw you a ton?
- Ramp via land tutors. Nissa's Pilgrimage is great for mono-green, is strictly better than Cultivate, but I'd still run both with Kodama's Reach and Nature's Lore.
- Reliquary Tower. My deck has a whole plan for getting this out so I can draw cards with impunity and keep deploying threats.
- Flying hate/Reach. Whiptongue Hydra, Arbor Colossus, and Ulvenwald Hydra have proven to be very valuable for me, and the last one helps with #2.
- Someone else suggested Woodland Bellower, which has been great for me too. I run a package of Eternal Witness, Reclamation Sage, and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker.
That's all for now; I think I've thrown enough at you. I could probably discuss Goreclaw shenanigans all day.

Overall though, my main piece of advice for a Goreclaw deck is this: if a creature can do the same/similar job as a card in your deck, use the creature, i.e. Archetype of Endurance instead of Asceticism. Oh, and a personal favorite of mine is Engulfing Slagwurm.
I have a question though, I'm intrigued by The Mending of Dominaria here. How do you like it?

In mono-green decks specifically, Nissa's Pilgrimage is strictly better than Cultivate or Kodama's Reach. I run all three in my Goreclaw build, but if you can't make room, I'd definitely make a swap.

Yeah, I thought about that a little too. It seems tempting, right? I mean, Evolution Charm has a slot, and that card's generally a forest with extra steps, so why not Traverse? One could easily just go -1 Forest +1 Traverse the Ulvenwald and it'd probably be worth it, right?
It isn't really, unfortunately. The problem is that there aren't that many ways to get Delirium either before or during the combo turn. There are only three relevant artifacts (Horizon Spellbomb, Armillary Sphere, and Wild-Field Scarecrow) and nowhere near enough other ways to dump cards (unless they start printing a lot more cycling lands). I have a hard enough time getting Spell Mastery for Nissa's Pilgrimage, and at least that card has a better fail case.
Evolution Charm earns its spot by being a regrowth for whatever casualty you had during the early turns. Sometimes you just need to play out an Eternal Witness for example, or getting back Wild-Field Scarecrow to get an extra land. Traverse, unfortunately, doesn't do any of that.
