Have you considered Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as a 2-3 of? It requires literally no building around-- it rewards you for playing more creatures, and can build up to huge overflows of mana, especially late game. It turns a late Wolfbriar Elemental into a massive horde all by itself.

@MogMan696 You have a couple options in my opinion. Drop a combination of all 3 Gudul Lurkers, 1 or 2 Foundry of the Consuls and/or 1 or 3 Monastery Sieges. Leaving 1 Monastery Siege in the mainboard is pretty pointless in my opinion, unless you want to put some in the sideboard.

Add in 3 Quicklings and 1 Scourge of Fleets, maybe a third Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as well.

I don't do it personally, but a second scourge of fleets could be useful if you want to hit it more consistently, in which case 3 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are a must and Foundry of the Consuls should be taken out.

Vakama Thank you for the good feedback. I agree on Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth... that's cut and replaced with 2 basic Swamp.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is actually a big part of this deck, and especially with Courser of Kruphix and Eidolon of Blossoms being able to abuse the legendary rule and double tap for devotion turns Doomwake Giant into a board wipe.

Collected Company I'm not sure on... deck was just built yesterday, and only playtested 3 times. Will need more data before I can accurately give an answer to its effectiveness.

Agree on multiple delves... Murderous Cut replaced with Thoughtrender Lamia for additional hand hate.

Also I don't know about black/green enchantment hate... I'm usually a white deck player... this deck is my first soiree into the land of evil colors.

Aspatagous I do love that card, however I own no Thoughtseizes and with it being useless in 3 weeks, it would be silly to drop $100 on a playset at this point.

Are you planning on keeping this deck together? How has strength from the fallen played out?

to make it slightly more competitive or at least slightly faster mana ramp I'd add in 2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. While doing that I would also play a 4th Elvish Mystic and get rid of the 3rd Nylea, God of the Hunt.

Mantle of Webs could likely be useful simply because you've got no flying defense and you're trying to keep the enchantment theme.

It's in the Mono-White devotion deck right now, but that's rotating since Heliod, God of the Sun and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are leaving us. I don't see it being too strong, but I'd actually wait until the PT before speculating.

So...I'm a little confused. Is this meant to be standard? Because if so, your ramp rotates out when Omnath enters (as well as other cards in Main deck), and so do most of these suggestions (Obelisk of Urd, Hall of Triumph, Hornet Queen, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Boon Satyr). Your sideboard also doesn't make it.

As far as suggestions, I don't like Herald of the Pantheon here, and the best ramp post rotation (unless BFZ has as of yet unseen ramp) is probably Origin's Leaf Gilder or Honored Hierarch, or even Rattleclaw Mystic, even though you don't use blue mana. Shaman of Forgotten Ways probably won't work, since you are trying to amass land, not play creatures (outside of Omnath). I'd suggest Nissa's Renewal (BFZ), even at 6 mana if Omnath is out it gets 3 5/5's, maybe 3 2/2's also, plus 1 for land per turn, and 7 Life. At least a one of?

Mill does lose Temple of Epiphany, which is a huge loss. Maybe if there are enemy manlands in BFZ it can stick around. Otherwise I still see it as a niche deck that sits on the outskirts.

Dragons can stick around, but losing Elvish Mystic, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Voyaging Satyr is a huge blow. Not to mention Sylvan Caryatid and Courser of Kruphix especially.

I could see control coming into view, but it would need a good white wrath. The new Gideon is great in a control shell, but he needs some help. Losing Dissolve is no joke, and the same thing with the Temples. Fetchlands + Tango Lands only gets so far.

And we've barely seen 10% of the set. Let's wait a little longer before baselessly speculating on what Standard is going to look like.
