Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

Mike94 on Angel Tribal EDH

If you are playing mono white I really recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Myriad Landscape is also a good filter/ramp. I also would recommend to run an Angel of Serenity, she has good devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and can get your angels back from the grave.

I also find Skullclamp really useful to ensure card draw since you say you are target no*1 after you've played some cards, better get some profit from your creatures dying.Hall of the Bandit Lord can also speed up your deck a bit, using the ability on Adarkar Valkyrie gives big value. Your deck could also really use a Grand Abolisher, he makes sure that you can do your thing during your turn and he is a good target for removal cause people hate him. This enlarges the chance of your angels sticking in the late game.

One angel I really love is Archangel of Tithes, she has such an huge effect for 4 mana and again good devotion. I would recommend to switch out Angelic Overseer, you don't run that many humans and she only really shines trough in human tribal decks.

If you're interested, here's my take on angels combined with humans: Odric, the Worldslayer

I really like the deck, mono white ftw!! +

LeeRoy_Jenkiins most of our druids are coincidental elves as well, so equipping something like Priest of Titania with the sword will provide an abritrarily large amount of mana, provided we have at least 4 elves in play. Alternatively you could use it with Voyaging Satyr and Gaea's Cradle or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and create a large amount of mana as well.

I actually did think of leaving the Stone-Seeder Hierophant in, but most of the time it never proved helpful in my playtests. /:

Winterblast, With Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx on the board, Torment of Hailfire can be cast easily to do massive damage. In play testing, I have routinely had access to 9 mana on turn 5 when I have That land in the board. The devotion in this deck works very well. For right now, since it's a new card, Torment of Hailfire won't likely be subbed out. Smallpox is definitely an option though.

maybe Angel of Glory's Rise

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would help you to get the 7 mana way earlier, allowing you to go for some Akroma's Memorial mainboard aswell

Hey man, nice Work, i'm always super exited to see Managorger Hydras being well protected, keep up the good work!

Here are some suggestions to beef up your deck:Simic Initiate and Experiment One proofed themselfs to be better than Servant of the Scale and could be more aggressive one drops you might want to take a closer look on.Heroic Intervention for saving ALL of your board in case of mass removal. It may be less aggressive than your protection, but I think it may be a safer option due to the low cmc and the great value

And since you play mono colored, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could provide you very early massive amounts of Mana, allowing you to play more expensive but stronger spells a la Rishkar's Expertise

lamogio: I am glad you like my list! I am really excited to play test it once the last few card I need get here on Tuesday!

I don't deal with land destruction very often in my meta. However, I still think I should add a land or a mana rock.. I am not sure. 34 lands and 2 mana rocks is way lower then I am use to, but we shale see. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be a good idea!

Decree of Pain was once in the deck. The high cmc and the fact that it is a boardwipe. It might come in for Damnation though...

I like your list. Basically i like everything that spins around zombies. I made my own list

Scarab Zombies

Commander / EDH* lamogio


and that's how i stumbled on yours.

I am playing more lands than you, the reason being that they get punished a lot on my playgroup ( Terastodons with emphasis on plural). Just in case you go up against something similar you could try sqeezing a Crucible of Worlds. Perhaps you could also benefit from a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Decree of Pain is another card i can recommend. You get to replenish your hand and as you already said so yourself about board wipes, with Vengeful Dead and Plague Belcher it hurts them more than you.

Finally since you rely on a couple of counters to protect your important assets, a decent solution is Mystical Teachings to help you tutor them in instant speed. or it can fetch Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir if you finally decide to include him.
