Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Nylea, God of the Hunt and maybe some stuff with 'X' since you are running mono green with tons of ramp, maybe a Hydra Broodmaster or something like it. Engulfing Slagwurm is a nice guy to have around too. I'm doing a mono-green EDH based on Yisan, it works way different from yours but that's a lot o big and interesting green big stuff there feel free to take a look Listen to the Music
I find it very hard to believe that you'll get a lot of use out of those Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx you're running, as what little devotion you would have is pretty evenly distributed across all three colors. I think Mystic Monastery would serve you better, or at the very least some variety of pain lands. I also feel like Suspension Field or Banishing Light is a slightly better pick than Quiet Contemplation , as they give you immediate benefit without requiring additional mana to be put into them.
Also forgot to mention, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Once you have 3+ devotion, this breaks even or just goes insane
I don't know if it will fit in your deck but I run a single copy of Abhorrent Overlord in my black devotion deck. With Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx it's easy to cast and with the amount of devotion these type of decks are able to build he usually comes in with 8 harpy tokens.
Whatever he meant, what you described is how it works. That's the whole reason to play multiples. You want to draw into them and you absolutely want to draw them when you have one in play. Being able to cast multiple spells on your turn while your opponent has no hand is how decks like this win. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx just puts that over the top. Tap for devotion, float a bunch of mana, play another permanent, play second Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , sac first and tap for even more mana. Cast all your spells and win. lol
irishwrath it would only work by already having Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx on the battlefield then tapping it for mana, putting however much devotion you have into the mana pool. Then by placing another Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx sacrificing the tapped one and in by doing that you could tap the new shrine for that much mana again. Is that what you meant by having 2 Shrines?
