Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

Caligula on Why don't you play your fetchlands? Moahaha

You need some more ramp, things like Elvish Mystic go a long way for you. Voyaging Satyr is awesome if you're using Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx because of the untapping.

The reason I say this is because you want Ob nix out as fast as possible. Not many people are fetching lands turn 4-5 because they will have already used them.

Also I think Agent of the Fates seems pretty lacklustre with the number of triggers for his heroic, you might want to look into maybe the new Rakshasa Deathdealer to fill this slot for a resilient body who could be a potential mana dump.

I've always liked ob nix abuse, just have to get him out there to do it.

Allosaurus Rider is something of a gangsta, and could probs find a spot or two here. Other than that, with Genesis Wave as a sideboard option, I'd think Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx may be of use, along with Karametra's Acolyte + Khalni Hydra

It's no problem. I wanted to see what you would need so I could let you know from there since I wanted a few things, and I was not sure you would find enough for all of it, but here is the list of things I would like to trade for in what ever combination you want to do. Eidolon of the Great Revel , Stomping Ground , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker .

The stomping ground is #1 on my needs list, and if you found enough to make it part of a trade, I would gladly go a couple bucks up to get it.

I'm just going to start by saying I don't know what kind of deck you're going for, but what I recommend will make the deck smoother and more efficient than what you have here. If you're going for a certain kind of setup, then ignore what I have to say.

Okay, with that out of the way, you should never run removal in a deck like this. (Mizzium Mortars was the exception because it didn't hit your stuff.) If you Anger of the Gods you kill your own Elvish Mystic , Sylvan Caryatid , and Voyaging Satyr , which is a big no-no. Harness by Force also seems completely useless. Your creatures are bigger, why would you ever want to take their stuff except in a mirror matchup?

You don't need Genesis Hydra AND Chord of Calling . In my opinion, Genesis > Chord because of it's 2 for 1 potential. If you do run Genesis, take out anything in your main deck that isn't a creature or Planeswalker.

Take Stormbreath Dragon , Nylea's Disciple and Bow of Nylea out of the main. Bow is great in the sideboard, amazing actually. Nylea's should be a 4 of in the sideboard for agressive match ups. (I'd cut a singular Mistcutter Hydra by the way.) Stormbreath doesn't fit the theme of Green Devotion, but it's a great card against decks with sweepers or anything with white.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Voyaging Satyr = Infinite Mana; I have absolutely no idea why you don't have at least a singular Nykthos. And even then, I'd run 4 just so you can guarantee it's explosive plays. (And if you draw a second with Courser of Kruphix , it's always a free point of life.)

Add some Wooded Foothills in. I know you can't afford them at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't fine tune your deck for when you do get them. I'd go as far as to say to keep the Rugged Highlands if you're going to be running things with double red in the cost.

The rest are little touch ups: make sure Polukranos, World Eater is a 4 of. I'd add another Nylea, God of the Hunt , her pump effect and giving other creatures trample in itself is invaluable. Try to find room for at least 2 Arbor Colossus in the main, or side at the very least. They have HUGE value, especially with Nykthos. Cut a Xenagos, The Reveler , you don't need 4 but 3 is fine. I'd add in 2 Nissa, Worldwaker and/or Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker personally. You don't need more than 1 Hornet Queen , so either commit to it in the main or on the sideboard. Ranger's Guile is useless, replace it with 2 Setessan Tactics . You don't really need Phyrexian Revoker because quite frankly you can just smash their Planeswalkers. Reclamation Sage is fine, but Polis Crusher is also another good option.

I hoped this helped, I'm not trying to be invasive or anything but I feel these changes would smooth your deck out the most. A lot of these cards seem either too situational or just downright bad for a green deck.

Indigoindigo The Courser of Kruphix and Polukranos, World Eater are not absolutely essential, but they are great in the current and future metagame. Goblin Rabblemaster is going to be in every deck that uses red, and the two best cards against an early rush of red creatures are Courser of Kruphix and Polukranos, World Eater . However, if you cannot afford the Courser of Kruphix , you could potentially run 3 Hornet Nest and you should be fine. It should be noted that you lose a lot of good things when you make this replacement: extra devotion, incremental life-gain, card advantage, and a 2/4 body that can attack. As for replacing Polukranos, World Eater , that's a little trickier. He's not just in there to be a 5/5 for 4, his purpose is to threaten a boardwipe when left unmolested with a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in play. If you can't get your hands on one of the Big Hydra World Muncher, you're not trying hard enough! Just kidding, if you really can't get a Polukranos, World Eater or two for this deck, try out a few Swarmborn Giant . If you're worried about budget with the 5+ mana creatures, try Hydra Broodmaster , Terra Stomper , and Nessian Wilds Ravager . They are all a little underpowered but will still be fun to play alongside Yisan, the Wanderer Bard .

I hope this helps answer your question and keeps you under budget!

@Goody Thanks for taking the time to respond. +1 to your deck. Regarding your recommendations:

I've applied the adjustments. Thanks again. I can't want to pilot the deck.

So I run mono green devotion in modern, and this deck looks like it wants to be a variant (TBH it looks like a standard deck with Rancor and Utopia Sprawl , but I'm not going to kibbutz too much). A couple of cards for you to consider that you may have missed -

Garruk Wildspeaker - he's essentially a two mana planeswalker, and he breaks Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in the mid game. He's also a better overrun effect than Overrun .

Eternal Witness gets your cards back.

Genesis Wave and Genesis Hydra - start flipping out (no pun intended) and dominate board state. Plus they are recurring cards as long as you keep plugging away with Eternal Witness .

Elvish Visionary draws cards, something pretty key.

Craterhoof Behemoth ends the hell out of games.

This is my modern deck, if you want to check it out and see what I do. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/05-08-14-the-big-green/

too bad Wirewood Savage isn't modern legal lol. Feed the Clan would be better as a SB card. I'd for sure use Leatherback Baloth in there too. Scavenging Ooze isn't a beast, but does get +1/+1 counters on it pretty quick and would go well with Hardened Scales (not to mention help against graveyard tricks in Modern). 1-2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would help power out your creatures/spells later in the game, and I'd cut a few Fogs for the Setessan Tactics for sure. Llanowar Reborn would be a helpful land on turn 1 since you don't have any creatures to play on turn 1, so a set of those might help as well. Hope this helps!
