Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

Fafa_Papa on Daxos, the Returned EDH

6 hours ago

Daxos is a slow and mana-consuming Commander, so you should really focus on what he does best, putting creature-enchantment tokens at instant speed on the battlefield :) If you want to play a "generic" Control deck, there are better Orzhoz Commanders for that.

Currently your deck looks like a creatures/lifegain deck, for which Daxos is really not the best choice (almost all other Orzhov commanders would fit more).

Anyway, any Daxos deck should include Skybind & Cloudstone Curio in my opinion :) Necropotence is a great draw engine too. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a good land as you have a lot of permanents.

Paragon Cycle:

Paragon of Eternal Wilds, etc.

Archetype Cycle:

Archetype of Endurance, etc.

Soul Cycle:

Soul of Zendikar, etc.

Ordeal Cycle (Ordeal of Nylea), Emissary Cycle (Nylea's Emissary), and God Artifacts Cycles (Bow of Nylea).

The Dictate cycle is also complete, but has some different God names. (Ex. Dictate of Karametra, Kruphix, Twin Gods, etc.)

I would get 5 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, to even all the deck's out.

Those are the ones I would add, if they aren't already present.

Deruvid on Ouroboros (Infinite Combo)

I love a good green EDH deck. I can't believe I've never seen Patron of the Orochi before. I may have to acquire him for my Titania deck. The combo looks pretty solid so I'm going to just make some utility/fringe suggestions.

Swap Joraga Treespeaker for Stone-Seeder Hierophant. You don't have a whole lot of elves to make great use of the final level and getting an extra means of untapping Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is good. I've done heinous things with an active Heirophant and Nykthos.

I dislike your cards that grant extra mana to your opponents such as Keeper of Progenitus and Extraplanar Lens. I realize they are low CMC and therefore can come out earlier, but it also accelerates your opponents earlier too. I'd opt for the longer route and trade them for Mana Reflection and Caged Sun or Zendikar Resurgent. It's a bit of a meta-call. If no one else in your playgroup plays combo, then you might be safe with what you have. It also might shield you from aggro if you're helping everyone out. This change is definitely situational depending on your playgroup. There's frequent combo in my playgroup and this would definitely backfire on me. They'd kill me first so that I'd stop helping the other combo player with extra mana.

You can trade up Explore for Exploration to get more mileage out of the card slot. Or if you want just a 1-time sorcery, Summer Bloom gets you more lands at the cost of the card draw clause.

Lastly, Dosan the Falling Leaf can be switched for City of Solitude to help protect the effect, as enchantments are harder to kill. Unless you typically search up Dosan with Green Sun's Zenith the enchantment version will typically stick around longer.

Fallentesla I don't know about Malakir Bloodwitch , probably to expensive but Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is good idea for sure

I would like to steer away from devotion. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is just too awkward early game. I don't want to have a sideboard either. I am playing this against new, inexperienced players. Thanks for the interest though

How about some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to power out something like Divinity of Pride? sideboard running stuff like Stromgald Crusader or and other similar protection creatures. also, shout out for unmake.

possibly add Malakir Bloodwitch as a finisher and one or two copy's of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx?
