Nissa's Pilgrimage

Sorcery

Search your library for up to two basic Forest cards, reveal those cards, and put one onto the battlefield tapped and the rest into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

Spell mastery — If there are two or more instant and/or sorcery cards in your graveyard, search your library for up to three basic Forest cards instead of two.

Nissa's Pilgrimage Discussion

ruy343 on how to deal with people ...

If the opponent is playing black, they likely have very few ways to deal with enchantments. Colossal Majesty or Elemental Bond can get you some additional card draw to power through their removal (and keep your hand full). Beast Whisperer does this too, but is unfortunately very easy to have removed when playing against black.

I also noticed that you're playing a lot of really big creatures alongside a 8 mana dorks. That means that most of your ramp is relying upon the survival of your little dudes, and if they can kill your mana dorks, your game grinds to a halt. Consider something like Nissa's Pilgrimage to get lands into play directly, which is harded for anyone to remove.

Also, you can take out Plummet , since your game plan is to just stomp face faster than they kill you. Your goal is to have so many big guys out constantly that they never stabilize and have spare time to hit you with whimpy fliers in the air.

I think you're playing too many tapped lands. Golgari Guildgate and Jungle Hollow can easily be cut for basic lands. Having more basics also helps you avoid getting absolutely destroyed by things like BloodMoon or Back to Basics , which are commonly played cards.

Your deck's curve is also a little off. I think you need more 1 drops ( Expedition Map , Wayfarer's Bauble , Mana Vault , Vampiric Tutor , Birds of Paradise , Deathrite Shaman , etc). I would cut some of your 6 drops to make room (you have a lot of 6 drops).

I also think you should make use of ramp spells before you play mana rocks. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Sylvan Scrying , Nissa's Pilgrimage , Search for Tomorrow , and Skyshroud Claim are all just so much better than Gilded Lotus or Golgari Signet .

karmagedon on Need help on budget land ...

Hi,

I'm choosing between Safewright Quest , Farseek and Nissa's Pilgrimage to increase my land ramp and help remove basic lands from my mono green deck, however I can't decide between a 1 drop hand, 2 drop battlefield or 3 drop hand + battlefield (possibly 2x hand + 1x battlefield) which would be better and why?

I'm running 4x Bloodbraid Elf and 4x Panharmonicon so I need to be able to play them from draw, but also gain advantage on a BBE cascade

Judging by cost I assume Farseek is better (probably because it's the middle ground to my above requirements), but I'm not 100% sure why it's 'better'

I'm also open to any better suggestions to achieve similar things better

Thanks

Nice deck! A lot of neat combos tucked in here. I have some suggested edits for you though!

Mouth of Ronom is a card you could very easily run. Green doesn't have a lot of targeted removal, and the opportunity cost for playing it is extremely low. If you swap your forests for snow covered forests, you're golden

I'm confused why you're running a fetchland at all. You don't need color fixing, and the deck thinning is extremely marginal when you consider how much it can slow you down against cards like Root Maze Back to Basics Thalia, Heretic Cathar Blood Moon Magus of the Moon Frozen AEther Kismet

Some of the card draw you run is pretty inefficient or extremely expensive. I'm specifically looking at Seer's Sundial and Sandstone Oracle . Sundial costs you 6 mana for the first card, while Sandstone is always dependent on opponents hand sizes for card draw, making it unreliable (and also costing 7 mana). I'm also not a huge fan of Sea Gate Wreckage but the opportunity cost for running it is extremely low. Have you considered Memory Jar or Howling Mine ? With your massive mana production Memory Jar could allow you to draw 7 and dump your entire hand. Howling Mine will accelerate your draws much earlier, although it is symmetrical. Beast Whisperer could be a good replacement if you don't want to give advantage to opponents, you certainly run enough creatures to justify. Life's Legacy is also a solid choice, especially since you're already running Greater Good

You run quite a few basic land tutors, some of them pretty low card quality. When you have access to Gaea's Cradle and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , why are you spending mana and card resources looking for basic lands? Specifically looking at Cultivate Kodama's Reach Nissa's Pilgrimage Seek the Horizon Journey of Discovery and Yavimaya Elder . If you ran fewer than 40 lands in this deck, you probably wouldn't have to run so many cards to deck thin to help your top deck, you could pretty easily cut to 34-36 lands. I'm also not wild about the very high CMC Hour of Promise , but it does search for non-basics. I'm also not very hyped about Tempt with Discovery , if you are playing against even mediocre or up skill level opponents you will be paying 4 CMC to search for one non-basic land. You're only getting more than one land off Tempt against bad players, or against players who can drop a Gaea's Cradle or other super value land against you.

Speaking of ramp, you should consider running Priest of Titania as well as Karametra's Acolyte . Currently you are very vulnerable to Armageddon and Ravages of War , two cards that see play in stax decks (as well as others). Having Ramunap and Crucible is a good choice, but you won't have access to those every single game you get hit by Armageddon. You should really consider mainboarding Carpet of Flowers as well, its virtually guaranteed someone will be running blue in a pod of 4, and it will let you hit turn 2 Azusa, and provide more value as the game goes later for very small investment.

On the topic of Stax, your deck is super vulnerable to getting caught. Almost all your draw is 3+ CMC, you have basically no removal, and you run a barebones 0/1/2 CMC ramp package. Thorn of Amethyst Sphere of Resistance Winter Orb Static Orb Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Lodestone Golem all cause immense problems for your deck. I understand that if you start your draw engine, you can escape from underneath them by dumping lands with your commander, but what do you do if one of those stax pieces lands on turn 1? Going fast works against stax, but there's no way you're going faster than a deck that runs the full suite of 0/1/2 cmc artifact ramp (which most stax decks do). You aren't going fast enough to threaten a win on turn 3, so you need to include removal. Having no removal is also a huge problem when beatdown is your wincon. What do you do against Moat ? Or Island Sanctuary ? Or Solitary Confinement ? A single piece of removal in the form of an 8 cmc creature is just not gonna cut it against real decks.

I would also recommend casting a really critical eye towards anything 5+ cmc. Cards that cost that much that don't actively win or directly lead to winning are most likely not worth the mana investment or the card space, even though you are a deck that ramps mana and draws cards. To put it in other terms, there are better things you could be doing with that mana. Your primary win con costs 10 mana to cast, 20 more to use, for a whopping 30 mana. Its forcing you to run pretty low quality cards like Mana Reflection and Zendikar Resurgent to get to that absurd amount of mana, on top of 40 lands. Running lower CMC spells will allow you to free up those expensive CMC slots that only enable you to play other expensive spells.

A couple more cards in specific you should reconsider Akroma's Memorial Ring of Three Wishes . Memorial you can replace with Lightning Greaves as a haste enabler for Craterhoof Lines, and Ring happens to cost you 10 mana to get a single card to hand, 15 for 2 cards, 20 for 3 cards, which we would call inefficient.

Would recommend Staff of Domination , especially if you include Priest of Titania or Karametra's Acolyte . Opens up lines for infinite mana and drawing your deck, or just provides a solid dump when you have too much mana and nowhere to go. I would also recommend Eldritch Evolution as another strong tutor. Uncage the Menagerie and Weird Harvest are a bit lower quality, but potentially what you're looking for as well. And I can't stress enough, add some removal to your deck. There are plenty of hyper efficient 1/2 cmc removal spells in green, as well as creatures that pack removal on ETB, which combines well with all the green tutors you run.

multimedia on Xenagos, God of Revels

Hey, good suggestions by hkhssweiss, but what your deck needs more than anything else are creature tutors and repeatable draw power.

Cards to consider adding:

  • Greater Good : repeatable draw (Soul's Majesty). Xenagos can double a creature's power, can sac at instant speed to draw a lot of cards.
  • Sylvan Library : repeatable draw each turn.
  • Fauna Shaman : repeatable creature tutor. Discard a mana dork who you don't need to tutor for a big creature.
  • Fierce Empath : tutor for any one big creature.
  • Signal the Clans : instant tutor for a creature and put it into your hand.
  • Garruk, Primal Hunter : can be repeatable draw (Soul's Majesty) or repeatable creatures for Xenagos.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Soul's Majesty
  • Demanding Dragon
  • Tyrant's Familiar
  • Relentless Assault
  • Savage Beating
  • Fyndhorn Elder

I see Taiga, Stomping, Glade and Thicket, consider upgrading your land ramp spells with Farseek , Nature's Lore and Wood Elves ? These cards can search for and put one of these four Forest dual lands onto the battlefield in the case with Lore and Wood it puts the dual land untapped. These spells can replace Kodama's Reach , Nissa's Pilgrimage and Explosive Vegetation .

Good luck with your deck.
