Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

i would strongly recommend keeping 24 lands, but making 20 of them plains and the other 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. i would also recommend taking out the Armored Ascension. most of the time, enchantments are only good on a creature with hexproof, because if an opponent destroys the enchanted creature, the aura gets destroyed too, meaning your opponent used 1 of their cards, to destroy 2 of yours. this is called getting "2 for 1'd". however, if the creature has protection from black (there are a couple of knights that have protection from both black AND red) then thats almost as good as hexproof, which can allow you to run Ethereal Armor. if you keep the Honor of the Pure and use enchantments that act as removal, such as Oblivion Ring, you can get a huge boost to power for only 1 mana.

1st you're running 6 colorless lands. If you're going to run 4 Field of Ruin then drop the Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Your spells are too demanding for 6 colorless. You're going to be constantly mana screwed.
3rd it's really cool seeing this deck evolve.

Arbor Elf pairs great with Wild Growth or Utopia Sprawl. I like Sylvan Scrying as a way to get out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Something else that might interest you would be the land destruction option you have starting on turn 3. It requires you to have an Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl or Wild Growth in play right away, but you can then play things like Bramblecrush and other less powerful versions that also hit lands. Might be a good sideboard trick.

would still suggest some good white token makers like Luminarch Ascension Monastery Mentor Hero of Bladehold pump things like Cathars' Crusade Akroma's Memorial and just good cards like Sword of the Animist Elesh Norn, Grand CenobiteSword of Feast and Famine Sun Titan Ashnod's Altar Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

First off, I think all the mana dorks with cmc greater than 1 that only produce 1 mana are bad. Voyaging Satyr is a great alternative with lots of synergy with your mana doublers and auras. In a similar vein, Krosan Restorer starts out as a Voyaging Satyr but later in the game generates tons of mana. Gaea's Touch is a great budget Exploration for mono-green, and can refund its cost once it's no longer useful.
Next, I think you need to cut back a bit on the artifact/enchantment hate and throw in a bit more creature removal. Ulvenwald Tracker is a repeatable fight effect, while Cartouche of Strength is a fight that doubles as a trample-enabler.
You might also want to find some backup big creatures for if Omnath gets permanently removed (or maybe turned into a forest). Ulvenwald Hydra can tutor up your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and also can be a massive beater. World Breaker is another interesting inclusion, since it's a fairly powerful self-recurring threat and great piece of removal. However, the need for colorless mana may make it not fit well with the rest of the deck. Steel Hellkite is another great creature that works well with your mana production, and doubles as fantastic removal.
Finally, you might need to find space for some more draw. Life's Legacy and Momentous Fall may seem like weird options, but with all the ramp in this deck, you can probably sacrifice Omnath for cards, and then immediately recast him for a slight reduction in size. Soul's Majesty is another option if you don't want to be sacrificing Omnath. Drumhunter is a slightly weird option, that's probably not worth it because it doesn't produce green mana, but serves as ramp and a draw engine, which is ok I suppose.

Improve your curve. (Less expensive cards)
Get more control cards. Some removal spells.
Get rid of your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. The card is served better elsewhere. And it's good trading material.
Don't play cards that only gain you life. Drop Chaplain's Blessing
That will improve your deck :)
Some cheap cards, (moneywise) that you could be looking into getting instead are. Mana Leak, Detention Sphere/(Or Oblivion Ring is sphere is too expensive). Condemn, Condescend, Opt, Think Twice, Journey to Nowhere, Serum Visions, Glacial Fortress, and Glimmer of Genius.

Hey there! Looks like a solid deck to me! There are a few cards that I would consider adding, though, mostly just EDH staples:
- Blasphemous Act
- Chaos Warp
- Reforge the Soul
- Temple of the False God
- Mind Stone
- Outpost Siege
- Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip
- Hammer of Purphoros
- Forgotten Cave
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Ogre Battledriver
- Faithless Looting
- Zealous Conscripts (goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki)
- Dualcaster Mage
- Magus of the Wheel
- Mana Geyser
- Burnished Hart
- Dictate of the Twin Gods
And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
- Dragon Fodder
- Krenko's Command
- Fiery Gambit
- Molten Birth
- Thatcher Revolt
- Generator Servant
- Harsh Mentor
- Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
- Zurgo Bellstriker
In any case, sweet deck! Good luck!
