Nissa's Pilgrimage Discussion

Let's get you some wincons, and fix that landbase.

First: Landbase. Basic stuff, manarocks, and better land cards, and a touch of fetchlands to get us rocking and rolling. Then, guess what, you're playing green. Congrats, you get the luxury of a vast array of tasty morsels called ramp spells, so we'll take advantage of that.

-3x Island, +Simic Growth Chamber, +Yavimaya Coast, +Bant Panorama

-2 Forest, +Myriad Landscape, +Command Tower

-Beneath the Sands + Traverse the Outlands (great way to filter land out of the deck if you get a big hand size power/toughness creature)

-Zndrsplt's Judgment +Thran Dynamo

-Blink of an Eye + Gilded Lotus

-Evacuation +Simic Signet

-Displace +Cultivate

-Mystic Confluence, + Kodama's Reach

-Time of Ice, + Nissa's Pilgrimage

-Entrancing Melody + Explosive Vegetation

Next, let's look at capitalizing on your commander's strengths: Card draw. We'll add in card draw, and some hand size manipulation to help manage it, along with some ways to make use of all that mana you gain and cards you draw.

-Watertrap Weaver, + Minds Aglow

-Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter + Mind Spring

-Academy Journeymage + Braingeyser

-Academy Elite + Pull from Tomorrow

-True-Name Nemesis + Venser's Journal

-Genesis Hydra + Thought Vessel

- Storm Sculptor + Tishana, Voice of Thunder

-Riddleform +Spellbook

-Divination +Harmonize

-Fleet Swallower +Awakening

Now for some wincons:

-Devastation Tide +Goblin Cannon (with your upcoming infinite mana/card draw combos, draw into this, then ping everyone for infinite damage and win, the ability stacks as many times as you pay the mana for it, before sacrificing itself).

-Saheeli's Artistry +Empyrial Plate (slap that on your commander, give it flying with caller of gales, free commander damage kill)

-Grunn, the Lonely King, + Laboratory Maniac

-Index + Time Warp

-Broken Bond, + Beacon of Tomorrows

-Opt +Psychosis Crawler

-Jace's Ingenuity +Sturmgeist

-Spelltwine. - River's Rebuke

+Isochron Scepter, +Dramatic Reversal (infinite mana combo with some mana rocks)

-Fumble +Illusionist's Bracers

-Ghostly Flicker +Aphetto Alchemist (equip bracers to alphetto, tap to untap it and target manarock or kydele for aother infinite mana combo, once you have infinite combos going, you can take multiple turns, draw out your whole deck with psychosis or lab maniac or tishana, or empyrial plate, etc)

Other infinite combos you can look for are Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle equipped to kydele if she's drawn enough cards. The possibilities are vast, just a matter of finding yourself a bit of room for those cards, which shouldn't be too hard. However I'm also aware of budgets, I know I've suggested a LOT of changes, many that you might need to purchase, and while the individual cards aren't too pricey, collectively it's a lot once you look at all the changes. But if you're personally looking to take your deck to the next level, I'll add some more blingy suggestions at the end of this comment.

Last couple of swaps to make:

-Overwhelming Denial +Counterspell (cheaper, better counterspell)

-AEtherspouts +Swan Song

The bling: Staff of Domination (more kydele comboing)

Patron Wizard

Seedborn Muse

Minamo, School at Water's Edge

Boseiju, Who Shelters All

Cyclonic Rift

Palinchron

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger

Tooth and Nail

other cards to consider would be a touch more cantrips and counterspells? Depends on local meta, how often you need to stop people from preventing your comboing off: Pact of Negation Muddle the Mixtures Brainstorm Mystical Tutor

Why Dreamstone Hedron, Staff of Nin and Sword of the Animist? There are lots of better options that fit into your deck, like

Primordial Sage instead of Staff of Nin,

Farseek instead of Sword of the Animist,

Elvish Aberration, Nissa's Pilgrimage or Nissa's Renewal instead of Dreamstone Hedron.

Primordial Wurm doesn't even have trample.

Use Bane of Bala Ged, Steel Hellkite or Regal Force instead.

If you're just on you should consider playing Nissa's Pilgrimage as well as Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. She's a Wood Elves that transforms into a solid utility card.

Then add more land, because you need lands in your hand in order for it to work. Nissa's Pilgrimage might also work for you.

TzickyT,

Eternal Witness can go, I usually use her simply to get the Lost Leonin back anyway. Could be a cat or a tutor.

Broken Bond can go, would be better as a multi-card or a fetch like Return to Dust or Kodama's Reach or Farseek. The problem is, there needs to be a viable Artifact/Enchantment in play. If there isn't your just holding it in hand (not ramping you). Secondly, assuming there is a Sol Ring or Lightning Greaves or something to destroy that isn't yours, you still have to have a land in your hand, very unlikely both conditions are true when it matters. Go Return to Dust if you need Artifact/Enchantment removal, you'll find the Exile far superior to destroy. A creature tutor here can grab your Qasali Pridemage anyway if there is an artifact/enchantment you need to remove, and if not then you get a Lost Leonin

Mirri, Cat Warrior could go, but I would replace her with Kemba, Kha Regent, I wouldn't go down any cats.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip could go, I was seeing if her potential to draw would outweigh the fact that the land goes into your hand instead of the battlefield, but so far it hasn't worked out. I haven't given up testing yet, but getting close. She could be a Kodama's Reach or Farseek or a Cat.

Harmonize has a low Card to CMC ratio. Basically gives you 2 cards for CMC4 (because it just replaces itself). Something like Momentous Fall probably has better upside. You have to Sacrifice an Eminence creature, but you get the Lifegain, and potential. Like think about Berserk an Eminence Cat and then Momentous Fall as an example. Could also be a tutor.

Nissa's Pilgrimage, I would prefer Kodama's Reach, just incase I don't have a Plains, the Spell mastery isn't anything to write home about either for the possible disadvantages.

Beast Within is CMC3 for Destroy and another downside, the 3/3 4/4 Beast I'm not sure. Selesnya doesn't have a lot of removal, so I understand the thinking. Stasis Snare gives another Instant removal, but have Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile already, but I would rather have another card that enables my strategy, like a tutor, and leave the higher cost removal to decks that have good removal. Understandable if you want to keep it in.

It's looking good, the tutors are critical because they let you pull the Lost Leonin early, they let you complete the combo Archangel of Thune/Spike Feeder they let you try and win with Felidar Sovereign.
