Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

This deck has a crap ton of devotion, so add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Really nice suggestion, BobFromAccounting and Sergal. This would give some extra creatures and power, also, i could put some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx because of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. But this will need like 115 dollars or more get this upgrade, so i will save your suggestions for when i have the money.

Thank you guys, you give me some awesome tips here.

AxfordArmories on Rate my Kaalia Deck pt ...

Good morning everyone! So now that I have more time to create a proper post, I have a deck that I am in the process of turning from a all out angel deck into a kaalia deck. These are the cards I am still looking to put in, with more ideas on the way:

Clifftop RetreatNykthos, Shrine to NyxGodsendGilded LotusGhostly PrisonVault of the ArchangelSol RingMaster WarcraftAngel of DespairBalefire DragonBloodgift DemonGisela, Blade of Goldknight Harvester of SoulsReaper from the AbyssRune-Scarred DemonRyusei, the Falling StarUtvara HellkiteAkoum RefugeDragonskull SummitSlayers' StrongholdBoros SignetRakdos SignetOrzhov SignetNevinyrral's DiskDeathrenderHellkite TyrantThunder DragonArmageddon

These might not all make it, there might also be more additions. One of the ideas is to have other sources that generate mana so when I use Armageddon to blow everyones land I am still left with ramp to do stuff with. another fun control combo I look forward to using is Aegis Angel + Avacy, Angel of Hope + Nevinyrral's Disk, to continuously wipe out my opponents field while everything I have stays safe.

You should drop Karoo (the "Return an untapped Plains" hurts really bad) and add in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Nykthos will accelerate you a lot more, without the drawback of bouncing a land to your hand. Also, if you want to accelerate a little more without using card slots, check out Myriad Landscape.

Puresteel Paladin is invaluable in equipment decks that want to slap equipment on various creatures (Nahiri's +2 is nice, but you know you won't be moving equipment to a Kor token if you control Kemba, Kha Regent, lol).

Stonehewer Giant will straight up win you games if you're able to untap with him. He can tutor out Strata Scythe or Pennon Blade for only 1W- that's huge. I particularly like Eldrazi Monument with token producing Commanders, too, so I recommend it for here as well. Konda's Banner on a bunch of Kor, Cat or Soldier tokens is pretty amazing in Commander, let me tell you.

Drop Pressure Point and use an actual removal spell, like Swords to Plowshares or Devouring Light (keeping budget in mind here. Path to Exile is a good non-budget option).

You can take advantage of your Commander not being a creature and include a lot of board wipes and ways to keep the field from swinging at you. Since Nahiri can repopulate a board state by herself, there's no real downside to running cards like Cataclysm, Armageddon, Wrath of God, Phyrexian Rebirth, Day of Judgment, and the like. I especially like Crackdown in mono white Commander, and Humility is flat out amazing with equipment (you turn all creatures into 1/1s with the enchantment, but the equipment applies in a different layer, so while everyone else has 1/1s, you can have 3/1s with vigilance, first strike, trample, and haste!

These are some easy cards you can put on a, "To acquire list" for future reference, as I believe they'll make your deck significantly more effective. If you need some ideas for a mono white Commander deck, please check out my Kemba, The Crazy Cat Lady deck. It used to be Nahiri, before I switched to Kemba as the Commander instead.

Kilrane & Argeaux,
I've never been a big fan of Celestial Dawn, but I fully admit I may be missing something. Sure it's a great fixer, but I'd frankly rather use the slot for a Land or Artifact that can fix and generate mana. Because it cranks your devotion to white through the roof I could maybe see using it with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, but if you just need the fixing, I like Prismatic Omen better. Plus, you really only get to drop a Dawn once per playgroup ... next game everybody's got at least one card with protection from white!

It's probably been there forever, but I just noticed your Steely Resolve. Wanted to make sure you realized it affects you too. With it out, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Nephalia Smuggler, Sun Titan, Reconnaissance, Cloudshift, and Gravepurge are dead cards :-(

Is this a 1v1 Commander deck, or is it multiplayer? I was thinking it was Duel, since you're missing Sol Ring, but then I noticed you had Sensei's Divining Top, which is banned in Duel. Is there a particular reason you're not running Sol Ring? I've noticed a pretty strong absence of acceleration all around, and I don't know if that's a meta call or what, but you could probably be advantaged by using Nature's Lore or something else. Actually, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be helpful, and Thespian's Stage and Vesuva would be excellent for copying Cabal Coffers. Expedition Map would be great for finding

Genesis would be a decent recursion engine for you. Living Death may be a better card to use over Twilight's Call, as well, since it can function as a sweeper + you lose nothing when you have a sacrifice outlet.

If you throw in a Temporal Adept and a land that produces lots of mana, ideally Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, you can get infinite blue mana by repeatedly bouncing Teferi and using his -1 ability over and over.

Thank you for the comments.

Despoiler of Souls isn't that good because the main idea of the deck its to keep my creatures coming back, i won't have so many creatures to exile for him. The same reason i don't get Crypt of Agadeem.

And i've tried Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and he can stop my early game, i really need specifically black mana. But i'm thinking about put at least 1 for the mid/late game.
